Need for Better Traffic Laws
There were 32.500 people killed and one million
injured by automobiles in the I nited Slates last year.
We have no way of knowing how many will be killed
or injured this year. Hut when one out of every 100
[itMip|c who rides is either killed or crippled each year,
it "gives one the right to look for and expect better
and safer methods of. handling automobiles. Many
are preaching safety methods, and vet the same safety
advocates are careless. In the possible passage of
certain safety law> in the present legislature, there is
some hope for a reduction in the number of accidents
in our State Bui the people must support the law
it it is to IK- effective, liven if our present laws were
rigidly enforced, many deaths and accidnts now oc
curing daily would IM* averted.

The American Mind a Shifting Thing
The American mind is a shifting thing. When
people feel gay, they go to the lanes and into the
yards and cut down all the sad cedars Hut when
hard lime- liegin to creep upon than again, they
go out and fill the fence jams and line the roads and
stieets with; young cedars again. If we Americans
were nitf > shift") minded our living costs would not
be as gieat a\ fhey.
Our houses go nut of style within a single genera- 1
ation;.our trees and shrubs go out of style before
they are halt grown: Our hits go out of ityle In'fore
the sea-on is half over. And so it is with almost every
thing we have. We certainly change, and too often
we suffer loss rather than gain by the change.
Trucks, loaded with mountain bushes and bramble,
are passing every day through the towns unloading

shrubbery not adapted to this altitude or soil. The
owners peddle their just because we are cry
ing for something new. The final result is that we
make too little progress; we climb a mile and fall a
mile, reaching no where.
The best designed yards and gardens in this State
today are nearly all more than twenty-five years old,
and many are more than fifty years old, apparently
proving that we are no wiser than those of other
days in spite of all our landscape specialists and
artists. The difference may be that they worked from
practical lines while we are being led on by magazine
The tree and shrub salesman can certainly change
the minds of people easily, inducing them to destroy
the things they have and buy something no better.
Woe Unto the Legislators!
Legislators, woe be unto you if you force the little
man to [>ay the taxes in the future as he has been
forced to do in the past. Brush the big lobby aside
and do the right thing and then adjourn. Just as long
as Raleigh is crowded with high-paid and high-power
ed lobbyists and you listen to them, the public, or
the rank and file of men will suffer.
Remember the folks who support the lobby against
taxes are doing so not because they aren't able to pay
the tax, but because they just don't want to pay.
They are making big money; if they do not make it,
then they will not have to pay.
Rememl>er your poor friends, the ones who do not
make money. Can you turn against them and see
their farms and homes sold for taxes?'
If a man fails to make a net income, he pays noth
ing, consequently he is not hurt. If he makes a fair
income, let him pay.
Not Satisfied With Road Bill Alone
With no strong lobby to combat, the North Caro
lina Legislature last Tuesday night enacted into law
the Connor Road Bill, effective April 1, 1931. If
the strong lobbies were kicked out of Raleigh, other
worthwhile legislation could be enacted. In the pas
sage i)f the road bill there is effected a considerable
saving to property, but even though great this saving
might l>e, the [>eople of the State continue to look for
relief as provided or called for in the school bill.
Governor's Task To Find Honest Man
It is now up to Governor Gardner to find a man
who is honest enough and wise enough to keep bank
officers from gambling and stealing. He might have
a friend who will be able to do that very thing, but
in case he has- not, it will be his duty to find some
body who can come as near as possible to that mark
Cleaning Up New York
They are now talking of cleaning up New York.
What a task they have, one that will require all the
water in the Hudson River to wash Tammany alone.
And then to think that North Carolina is trying to
ajie the crime breeders by legalizing gambling within
its borders. ~
'4-H CLUB WORK
I HELPS SECURE
26,638 Boys and Girls Are
Enrolled in Clubs in
j The 26,638 rural boy* and girls en- 1
rolled in the 4-H clubs organized and
j conducted by extension workers of
State College, played a commendable
' share in improving acre yield of good
and feed crops and in handling live
stock for better profits last year.
L. K. Harrill, state club leader, says
! for example, that there were 1,461
f club members with corn projects. Of,
this number 1,001 members completed
their work and made reports. These
! boys and girls grew 1203 acres of corn
1 producing 49,467 bushels or an aver
age yield of 49.4 bushels an acre and
i compah-d to the 20.9 average acre
' yield for the State as a whole.
| 11K- average yield of wheat grown
by 29 club members was 16.8 bushels ■
(compared with a State average of 12.5
bushels an acre. The average yield per
! acre of irish potatoes grown by 127 |
members reporting was 141 bushels as \
' compared with the state average of
1 98.The average acre yield of sweet 1
I potatoes grown by 79 club members ,
! reporting was 159 bushels an acre as j
| compared with the state average of |
!97 bushels. With cotton, 322 club
! members produced an average yield i
i of 675 pounds of lint an acre as com- |
| pared with an average for the state j
last year of 233 pounds.
Mr. Harrill is especially pleased
! with the increased interest in the live
stock 'clubs. He says 1040 club mem
-1 bers enrolled in dairy calf work last
(year with 802 members completing
j their projects. These boys and girls
had 802 animals. There were also
i 1200 club members enrolled in the pig
! project and 806 reported though it was
I impossible to get a complete record
'of all pigs handled. However, 27 club
1 members reported qn their sheep pro
! jects showing 130 animals handled.
| With poultry, 1,276 of
' 2,228 members enrolled, reported on
their projects showing 43,783 birds
Wherein Schools Fall Short
To the Editor;
The honor system in our schools is
having such a disastrous result that all
over our country there are persons
who are trying to call attention to it in
the hope of getting a change.
On October 31, at White Plains, 1
New York, the Westchester County
i grand jury handed up a presentment
jto Supreme Court Justice Graham
! Witshief, in which they held the, edu
' cational system of the United States
I to be responsible for the prevalency
1 of crime in this country.
Says the presentment:
j "Crime is rapidly increasing in this
country, especially among the young
and already has reached a stage which
' marks us as the most criminal of all
i civilized nations. This increase of
crime can not be attributed to new
world conditions, because Canada is a
notably a law abiding country, nor to
poverty, because Great Britain and
many other European nations have
much more poverty than the United;
States and much less crime.
| "These sister nations are distinguish
' ed by a well balanced system of edu
cation which apparently is their chief
bulwark of crime prevention.
"Our schools excel in training for
science, invention, industry and com
merce, but pay little attention on how
to live or how to govern and more es
pecially they afford only we.ak and in
adequate instruction in philosophy of
living or in morality; so that the pupil*
are not made conscious of their rela
tion to society, the rights of others,
respect for law and order or respect
for the proper constituted authorities."

> Representative of Produce
Company Here Recently
Prices paid for fruit in this section
have been lower during the past few
' months than in years, according to
' a statement made by a representative
'I of a fruit produce company recently.
1 1 The representative, traveling through
' here this week, stated that the low
prices are the result of the unusually
large crops produced in both Florida
1 and California.
The public, generally, attributed the
•--low prices for fruits to the existing
' depression, but the representative
1 , stated thafr the large crop was respon
sible for the low price level. The crop
was said to be so large that the co
, operative marketing associations in
Florida and California were unable
j to handle the crops and keep^prices
up. A price increase is expected for
| the next crop if the growers limit
