The following report of the com
mittee on temperance was adopted
at' the recent meeting of the
Waynesville distribt conference
held at Long's Chapel, Lake Jun-
aluska : , '
"Your committee on temperance
deplores the .necessity' of. fighting
over again the battles of a genera
tion ago, . but realizes that this
crisis is upon ius today as the, di
rect result of the complacency
Uncle Jim Satjs
; -mmm ,i9.
Strip-cropping, contour planting,
check dams, and terraces may sound
high falutin' to some folks, "but they
keep soil where it belongs.
that came over us when the I8th
Amendment was adopted. Instead
of making the end , of an era it
was actually the beginning of a
period in which the churches jest
ed while the wets worked.
"As parents and church leaders
we have mainly ourselves to blame
for the present condition. Alcohol
has ever tempted the race of men,
and will be considered by each
succeeding generation for ever. The
great task of the present church,
therefore, is to instruct the rising
generation regarding the scientific
nature of alcohol, its poisonous ef
fect On-the hprnan body, its fearful
havoc of death on our highways,
its demoralization of society, and
its soul-benumbing power.
"In regard to the sale of liquort
your committee believes no wrong
thing can be made right even by
law. Methodists, in common with
all truly Christian people, have
ever disapproved of both the con
sumption and sale of alcohol on'thej
ground that whatever hurts man
is a sin against God.
"That our preachers cry aloud
from their pulpits, our church
school officers and teachers search
out and bring into the open the
truth about alcohol and the fallacy
that liquor stores help temperance.
(Facts regarding the bad condi
tions that have followed the open
ing of A. B. C. store in our state
are available from the office of the
United Dry Forces, Raleigh, N. C.)
"We recommend further:
"Thtt our Christian citizens be
come active, in supporting the en
forcement of the law. That this
conference now record its distinct
disapproval of the legalization of
the sale of liquor within its borders.
"It is the feeling -of your com
mittee that a liquor store Jn a
community will be simply one more
place to get liquor, that it will
immediately increase the number
of adult drinkers by making it
appear respectable; that it will
serve as a blind for bootlegging
instead of decreasing it; that the
liquor store, having to pay. several
profits and a heavy tax, cannot
compete with the bootlegger; that
the open display of attractive pack
ages in legalized and therefore so
called , respectable places with the
formal endorsement of the citizenry
of the community will tend to
make the rising generation a drink
"That the modern, idea that al
cohol can be 'used and not abused'
is utter fallacy, and there is no
safe,, practicable attitude toward
this great enemy of the race ex
cept total abstenance.

Demand for Anti-Rabies
RALEIGH. From now until 19-40,
or 1941, there shouln be a gradual
decline in the prevalence of rabies;
then will begin the climb toward
another "peak," it., was pointed out
here today by Dr. John H. Hamil
ton, director of the division of
laboratories of the North Carolina
state board of health. '
r There has foeen a steady decrease
in the demand for anti-rabies vac
cine in this state since the latter
part of 1935, Dr. Hamilton saidrfc
"Rabies," he continued, "comes iie
t j: -
epidemic waves, jusi iikc oiner
eases, and in North Carolina
takes ten and a half years to cm
plete the cycle, that is, it is Mat
length of time between each 'ieak'
or each 'low.' In New York (City
it takes IS years. This is du to
the fact that, while there -' a
much greater density of popoltion
in New York than in North Caro
lina, there are fewer dog! in pro
portion to the human population.
"But," he warned, "there should
be no let-up in precautions against
rabies, the disease will soon become
apparent and the dog will become
ill and die If it shows , signs of
rabies, there will still be time for
the patient to take the Pasteur
treatment, unless, of course, the
bites are about the head. In that
case, no. time should be lost. But
if the dog shows no signs of rabies,
the person bitten may be saved a
lot of trouble, pain and even dang
er, for there is always an element
of danger about taking the Pasteur
Vigorous Bee Colony
Produces Much Honey
A strong, 'vigorous bee colony
that has plenty of bees" in the
spring will be in good condition
to gather a great deal of honey
C. L. Sams, extension apiarist at
State college, urges all beekeepers
to check ' their colonies to see if
they have enough food, a good
laying queen, and are free from
If the food supply is less than
15 to 20 pounds of honey, a colony
should be fed 15 to 20 pounds of
sugar syrup. When food is low,
brood-rearing falls off and the col
ony will not have sufficient bees to
gather . honey.
If the colony is queenless, or if
its queen is "old and failing, the
colony should be united with an
other having a vigorous, healthy
queen. Or the apiarist may pro
vide a new queen.
"If "any dead brood is found,
samples of comb two or three
inches square, containing as much
dead brood as possible, should be
sent to the bee culture laboratory,
Bureau of Entomology, U. S.v De
partment of Agriculture, Washing
ton, I). C.
If the Jaboratory finds the'trouble
is European foul brood, yoiing vig
orous .Italian queens should be in
troduced ihtp the colony at once.
Eggs from Italian queens are re
sistant to this disease.
But if the disease is American
foul brood, the colonies affected
should be burned at once to keep
the disease from spreading, Sams
Be.es in modern hives will pro-,
duce far more honey than those
in old 'box or gum hives, he added.
