Not to Blame for
Local Resident Received Reply
to Letter Sent Governor of
Incensed at the departure for Eng
land of the Lindbergh family a prom
inent resident of Southern Pines ad
dressed a letter to Governor Hoffman
of New Jersey, and this week receiv
ed the following answr from a mem
ber of the Governor’s executive staff ;
“Contrary to the stories that some
of our newspaper friends seem so
anxious to circulate, Governor Hoff
man has never expressed sympathy
for Bruno Richard Hauptman, nor has
he expressed an opinion as to the in
nocence or guilt of the prisoner. With
his own newspaper background, the
Governor should surely be able to
differentiate between publicity and
notoriety, and it would not be plaus
ible to believe that he could be mov
ed by any cheap notions of publicity
or political advantage. The Governor
can only honestly and honorably
make his decisions as a member of
the Court of Pardons in the light of
evidence and information, and his trip
to Trenton State Prison was entirely
within propriety and not without pre
cedent. A former Governor of New
Jersey employed the same means of
familiarizing himself with the facts
in a like case, and another Governor
delegated a member of the Court of
Error.® and Appeals to perform this
"No doubt Colonel Lindbergh had
gocd and sound reasons for sailing
for Europe at this time, but it would
de decidedly unfair to say that his
departure is chargeable to the Gov
ernor. Most certainly Colonel Lind
bergh has never made a statement
that would justify this belief.”

SKIING ON PINE NEEDLES
PROPOSED NEW SPOKT
HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW
A bicycle without pedals, invented by two Chic
ago men, designed to operate on body motion
alone. Standing on a springy footboard, a rider
propels the vehicle simple by raising and lower
ing the body.
The rear wheel of the X-ERCYCLE has its
axle mounted off center. A downward thrust of
the legs tends, after the bicycle has been placed
in motion, to pull this axle down to its lowest po
sition, thus causing the wheel to revolve in a for
Momentum returns the axle to its highest
position and the procedure is repeated. The up
and down flexing of the footboard, once the rid
er gets the knack, can be coordinated with the
movement of the rear axle to make operation

and City Clerk Howard Burns. Dur
ing the meeting a quintet, Charles W.
Picquet, Frank Buchan. Shields Cam-

Dunlop sang a number of songs.
Suggestions made included these:
Place more emphasis on horseback
riding here; erect more direction signs
on highways leading to Southern
Pines; more advertising and efforts
to bring North Carolina residents to
the section during the season; stress
“Mid-South Resort” rather than
“Sandhills’' in advertising, lest north
erners get the idea of a sand dune
country here; solicit new ideas for
slogans. Several spoke of the great
value to Southern Pines the develop
ment of its private schools will mean.
Dr. George G. Herr reported on the
town beautification program, of
which committee he is chairman.
