Tariff Revision and The Manufacturer
Meads of the manufacturer&Htssn
ciations arc dissatisfied with the re
port of the "Business men s commis
sion." It is not a. strange thing to
hear a manufacturer squeal whenever
you talk about tariff revision.
The trouble with the manufactur
ers of this country is that they have
had their heads in lite milk trough so
lung that when vou attempt hi kick
them out they squeal like pigs and
whine like pups whin yotl take bones
from them.
In this caw, Mr. John K_ Kdger

"'Business Men's Commission'' is'fol

The business men's commission I
was set up by the I'nited States

Training To Be Tar Heel Farmers
Will it pay a Martin County boy
to b«' a "Tar.-Heel Farmer"? 'Twerij
ty-five Jamesville buys are willfng
to risk it and are moving toward 'the
(arm with full steam ahead.
, They are to t" ;ill-i"o

combine brain and muscle. They
are not only learning the land but
the plant food, the best seed, the best
mules, horses, cows, and- pigs to put
on -the farm to makfe it a success.,
They are wacthing folks to find jhe
safest ways to make a living and lie
happy and to be useful citizens.
Most of these boys are |wrtners
with their fathers, and there are tnan\
cases in which the boy has been able
to teach the fabler a "better, safer,
and easier way to do things.
Thfcse young Tar Heel farmers are
determined to take the grind out of
farming, and instead of the, farm
home being a place of drudgery, it
will some day be a place where the
community will find its intellect, its

these occasions, lasting all day, have
become real home-coming days, and
a large humber oi people attend from
all parts of the county and even other
counties and out of the State. On this
occasion. Mr. Corey's sermon - on

and forceful. He has had me present
