Does Santy Smoke Cigarettes,
Attorney Indignantly Inquires
Glenna Collett Tries

Old Nick’s Advertised Endorse
ment of Certain Brand Stirs
Member of Bar
Is it right for Santa Claua to
The question comes from a mem
ber of the State Bar, who in a let
ter to The Pilot also inquires;
Is it right for Santa Claus to en
dorse commercial products?
The letter, received from Attor
ney Warren F. Olmsted, former res
ident of Southern Pines, now prac
ticing his profession in Sanford, was
prompted by a magazine advertise
ment. He says:
“I enclose an advertisement which
appears in this week’s Colliers. I
want to know if it is right for Santa
Claus to smoke cigarettes, and if so
is it right for him to come out and
admit it and to endorse a particular
brand. Society women endorse things'
the President of U. S. won’t. Kings
won’t endorse things but allow their
seals, with the words "By Special
Appointment.” Where in the social
scale does Santa rate?
“I always thought that Santa
would smoke a clay pipe, if he smok
ed anything. Maybe he is hard up this
Christmas and wants some money
tci buy supplies to make his toys of.
Shouldn’t there be some other way
for him to get monSy than to
come out and endorse commercial
“I want you to become very indig
nant about this. Maybe you ought to
write an editorial about it. I don’t
remember Santa Claus allowing his
picture to be used before as using
some particular brand of tobacco or
We Denuind Proof
The Pilot joins in the indignation
expressed by Mr. Olmsted. If kings
and the President of these United
States are timorously prudent and
somewhat deliberate about endorse
ments it is more than likely that an
artful old codger like Santa Claus
with all his gentle shrewdness would
have even more lestraint. It is very
c’oubtful if he ever smckd a ciga
rette. Nowhere in the annals of his
tory have we any evidence that he
took as much as one puff, and evi
dence is the thing the lawyer will de
mand in aaswer to his questions. He
insists on the establishment of facts,
the certainty of truths, and must
have arguments sufficient to in.snre
belief. He will accept nothing on
hearsay, surmise or rumor.
With our incomplete evidence no
one can confirm or verify the an
cient Saint was a cigarette addict,
and the profession would ask for pos
itive proof before any verdict would
be given or guilt declared. The line
‘‘threat protection*’’ without irrita
tion,” that the advertisement stresses
need not trouble the immortal old
throat that has proved imperishable
through all the.se years, generations
and centuries and will continue to
endure, life without end.
If some enterprising concern
thinks it has wrung a testimonial
out of Santa Claus it isn't significant
of anything. Nothing can ever add
or subtract, change or destroy our
immortal Santa Claus. He will con
tinue to exist on throughout the
countless ages about as unchanged
as in the years of long ago.

left the trials to go to the gun club
where she broke 45 out of a possible
75 clay pigeons at skeet shooting
and felt as chagrined as if she had
just three-putted five consecutive
greens, where I thought she had
“done noble.” In her girlhood days
she could catch and throw a base
ball as good as any of fhe boys. She
is good at tennis. Just a natural, as
you might say.
Tries Out Niinilter Two
She didn’t come to Pinehurst to
play golf, taut did bring along her
clubs, though she had not played
here in four years. The lure of the
No. 2 course ,with its revamped lay
out and its grass greens, finally prov
ed to much for her. She got out the
trusty, almost rusty "bats,” limber
ed up for a time on “maniac hill,”
that practice ^stamping ground of
thousands, got her swing working
not so badly and played a round Sun
day, another Tuesday. Her first re
sulted in an 88, her second an 85,
playing from the white markers, the
ones which make the playing dis
tance 6,879 yards on the card, or
practically 6,900 yards.
Now bear in mind that the lady
who at present holds the national
golf title and who has won it six
times had played golf no more than
three times since she won her latest
title at Minneapolis. She raised a
blister on her left hand in practice
and did not really find her swing un
til the last nine holes of her second
round, but you .should have seen her |
hitting the ball, once she had the!
swing working! She was hole high!
in two at the first hole, just off the i
edge of the 424-yard seccnd in two, |
thirt.v-five yards short of tne 4.'54-yard j
fourth in two, over the 415-yard four-1
teenth in two and would have been 1
home in two at the sixteenth, 4521

net her second shot bv.'sn hooked. ]
I After British Title i
I There is one supreme ambition ]
^ Mrs. Vare still has in golf, even i
j though .she has more reason to be j
satiated over her links triumphs than!
I anyone else this side of the Atlantic. I
I She would like to win the B’itishI
w.men’s championship, which no
American has done. Her opportunity
will come next spring, for she is go-
in.^ abroad with the American team
to plav in the international match
against the British for the Curtis
Cup, donated by the Curtis sisters
of B:ston, Margaret and Harriott, to
be played at Glen eagles, Scotland,
May 6, and after that she will play
in the British championship at the
Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club,
near Liverpool, beginning May 16.
It is quite a possibility that Mrs.
Vare will come to Pinehurst for her
final preparation for her trip abroad.
She might even play in the North
and South women’s championship here
Apiil 6 to 10, and so might some of
the other girls who are selected for
the Curtis Cup team. Thsy could
net get conditions better suited to
put them on their game before the
voyage across the water, for the
weath-r here at that time of the
year, ideal as to temperature, is
pretty apt to have plenty of breezes,
which is what the girls will face on
the Scottish and English links.
Riding Lessons For the Oegiiiner
Hy Geoffrey I.aing
Fresh country produce at the
Curb Market in Southern Pines to
The desire to loarn to be a good
rider is the basic itiea upon which
beginners must rely. This would seem
t. vety natural thing to everyone, but
unfortunately it does not alway.s
prove the case. For instance, the be-
;inner so cften works diligently, soon
conquering the rudiments, and with
one (not sev're) fall to his credit
ieli:vcs himself quite the spectacle to
This is bad, for his desire to learn
is soon consumed by his pride, and
he steps learning and becomes merely
a rider. Therefore if every rider is
to be a good rider, he must hold this
desire to learn ever in mind. In the
b ginning the desire to learn is often
't tacked by discouragement from a
lack of confidence in one’s self, horse,
or instructor. This must b^ conquer
ed at once by the desire to learn
more and mora, and not be encom
passed by these passing phases.
Then again, as the pupil pro-
gi-esses, the desire Id learn is attack
ed by another force; this time by
ov:r-confidence in one’s self and one’s
horse. This is not only odious
thei’ people, but is one of the most
fierioua and frequently occurring aX-
taclis to which a rider may be sub
jected. This is petious, but our fii*t
principle applied carefully seems
cope with the problem quite simply.
The desire to learn always something
more is not cnly basic for the begin
ner, but also an essmtial for the
most experienced rider.
