all his writings. He was unfortunate
in the choice of his language. Much

The Fair is a benefit to every citi
zen of this town. Thousands of visitors
come here every year and they leave
tens of thousands of dollars here.
Money makes the mare go, therefore
their coming makes this a better town.
For this reason w e say that the citizens
of New Bern ought to give better
aupport to the Fair Association than
they have given this year. The manage
ment of the Fair put season tickets
on sale at the low price of one dollar.
Three thousand should have been
bought by citizens of this town; only
about three hundred were sold. This
is poor encouragement to those who
are working their heads off to make
this thing a success with little hope
of ever realizing a dollar from it per-
onalty. The men who are behind
this Fair are working, primarily, for
the upbuilding of the city and not with
the hope of getting rich. If they were
planning to get rich they would go
into some other business.
Today is the final day of the Fair
and let citizens of New Bern show they
appreciate what is being done for them
by patronizing it liberally. It is worth
twice the price to see what is to be
seen at the Fair grounds. The writer
has visited several fairs and this is one
of the best he has ever seea.
"With the announcement from
Washington that Senator Simmons

Bailey is collector, Francis D. Wins
ton will be named district attorney
and W. T. Dortch marshal. All of
these men have rendered good ser
vice to the party. Colonel Doftch
has done more for his friends and
the Democratic party without re
ward than any man in the state, and
we are glad that his services and
ability are to be recognized at last."

on the race segregation plan. The

have not become over enthusiastic

away to themselves would practically
eliminate them as a factor in the labor
problem. We do not see how the South
is going to do without the work of
the negro. No person can travel five
miles each day, to and from his home,

use him in our business, why not
go a step further and send him out of

be about as feasible as the other and,
in the latter event, we would rid our
selves of the race problem entirely.
If we merely put him away in a secluded
spot he will do us no good, but we will,
in a measure, have the race problem
on our hands, still. Besides, the South
will have to furnish him a living. Is

As far as the danger to our women
is concerned, we believe the remedy
for that lies in education. Culture and
education go together and once the
negro is educated he will cease to
give offense in that way.

without the negro we will let him go,

(Written for the Journal)
Much interest was added to the Phy
siology work this week on account of a
visit by Dr. Von Ezdorf, government
specialists on malaria. After a lecture
in Chapel, the two classes were taken
to a nearby pond to observe the stages
of the malaria mosquito. Specimens
of these stages were found, and studied
under the direction of Dr. Von Ezdorf.
The class was impressed by the in
formation given, and realized more than
ever what the government is doing to
improve health conditions.
The Fair took only two boys from the
ranks of the KA grade this week. It
seems that those who can least afford
to drop out are always the ones to be
affected by special occasions.
Our visitors this week were Drs.
Von F.zdorf and Taylar, and Mr. T. A.
Freen. On Monday and Tuesday
mornings at Chapel Dr. Van Ezdorf
gave most interesting talks on malaria
its cause, how transmitted, and the
means of prevention. A more inter
esting and helpful talk has never been
made at school, and Dr. Von Ezdorf
was listened to with the closest attention
On Monday at 12 o'clock Dr. Von
Ezdorf took a class of High School
pupils to the low grounds in the new
part of the city, and showed the pupils
the breeding grounds of the mosquito,
and gave them valuable instruction of
the different kinds of mosquito, etc.

Secretary Daniels' suggestion that
voting be made compulsory is causing
quite a lot of comment. So far no rea
sonable objection, in our opinion,
has been raised against it. The only
way to keep the government out of he
bosses' hands is for the people to take
an active part in its management
themselves. When a citizen neglects
to do this he neglects his duty and we
believe that the law should make
every man do his duty in government
al matters. This would eliminate
the necessity for (pending money
to get out the vote and the man with
the dough bag whould not be as poten
tial a factor as heretofore. Anything
that tends to lesaen corruption in
politics is worthy of consideration.
One suggestion, that if a man were
compelled to vote. he might vote against
his interests for spite, is rqeally laugh
able. People don't cut off their noses
to spite their faces so badly as that,
if it were unlawful not to vote the peo
ple would go on and do their duty
much the same a they serve on the
jury and do other kindred things
required by the law.

The members of the faculty of the
college or university should realize
that athletics are desirable and ab
solutely necessary to the beat devel
opment of the student and stu
dent life. If each teacher were

and athletic contests there would be
greater sympathy between teacher
and student, leas friction and better
work done by both. Rosters would
be made and examinations set on
dates which would less frequently
