, Changing Sides Rapidly
Did you ever see so many candidates change their
platforms in your life?
It will be remembered that in the jiot-so-far-distant
past certain prominent folks in North Carolina fought
very hard in a rather silent way against the school
tax proposal, which was to raise all school taxes from
sources other than property tax. v -
Now, since they see the swing of the tide, they are
trying to get over on the side of no tax on property
for school purjK»ses.
This doubtless means that the program in the next
legislature is" going to be "cut *Ke schools." This is
almost certain, because the very same folks who
kicked against paying a fair share of the school tax
last year will do the same thing next year.
„ The fact that a candidate comes out on a platform
of cutting taxes is not enough if he intends to de
stroy government. Nobody objects to more economy
in government and cheaper schools, just so long as
the basic prices of the country are at the present low
level. But watch the f ellow vho a«V.s votes on the
principles of economy, unless he also pledges good
benefits in return for each dollar bpent. '
There are a lot of folks, who are opposed to free
public education, and who would silence the school
bells forever rather than reduce their own incomes.
The candidate who has principles of government
which stand up under strain, and which does not
to be changed with the tide is generally the safeest
man to tie to.
Some folks are complaining about paying taxes.
There is some ground for complaint, but we can't
truthfully place the blame for hard times on taxe*.
In fact our tax money is about the only money we
have spent during the past IS years that we now
have anything to show for. We have our roads, court
houses, county homes, school houses and other im
While a very small per cent of our expenditures
during the period has gone for taxes, that money is
still visible in public improvements and will eventual
ly pan out a hundred cents on the dollar. Fair and
honest minds and hearts are one of our greatest needs;
We should be fair.
The Guiding Beacon For 200 Years - .
President Wright Is Right
Dr. Robert H. Wright, president of the East Car
olina Teachers' College, has taken the proper stand
in refusing students of the school permission to smoke.
Dr. Wright says the state k is not ready to invest
about $125 a yeir in educating girls for teachers in
public schools and permit them to follow a habit that
will cause school boards to refuse to employ them,
President Wright puts the ban on smoking not on the
grounds of a moral question, but purely from a busi
When a person forms a' habit that grips him as tight
as the smoking habit, it very greatly retards his use
fulness in any line of work. It is really pathetic to
watch smokers and see how much'good time they
waste in smoking; and, of course, the man who di
vides his time between his ordinary line of thought,
which is always very essental to success, and the time
given to buying, begging, lighting, and smoking cigar
ettes loses much. - »
No man or woman has either a legal or moral right
to make a slave of himself ot herself to habits that
destroy usefulness. Especially is this true of persons
drawing tax 'flftoneyr 1 ' ' 7"
President Wright is right in his effort to save the
young women of the state from the slavery of the
Buy Quality Cotton Seed
The North Carolina Cotton Growers' Cooperative
association, in addition to its regular and valuable
work, is offering still another valuable aid to the far
mer members this year. In an attempt to improve
the quality of the State's cotton crop, the association
is offering its assistance to those farmers who ask«for
aid in the purchase of quality cotton seed. If you
are interesting; in improving the quality of your crop,
get in touch with the association at Raleigh.
Better To Aid Charity Now
Unhappily vested with the responsibility of caring
for and feeding the unfortunates, society would do
well to form a partnership right now with the help
less ones. It is hardly fair to expect one to plant his
seed, cultivate his crop through the hot summer
time and then share his harvest and earnings with
another. Why not, if there isiany aid to be rendered,
give the unfprtunate ones who aren't able to buy,
necessary seeds and help them locate a plot of land
that they, too, might join in the task of supporting
all mankind. '
Each year the "giving power" of our people has
been lessened, and those who fail to procure see and
cultivate their own gardens will experience poverty
in its fullness during next fall and winter.
It is a combined task of our county authorities,
welfare organizations and workers and all the people
to get seed for those people who have depended upon
small donations in the past and see that they plant
and cultivate (hem somehow and some where during
this coming spring and summer. The task well done
will save from starvation and at the same time lessen
the burden imposed.upon the general public and the
demand made upon the county "dole".
Now is the time to aid our unfortunates. In the
past they have been discharged when the first signs
of spring ap|>eared in the woods and fields. Like the
animals of the forests, they roamed here and there,
eating berries and the other ready offerings of nature.
But when the animals hibernated in the fall and win
ter, the unfortunate humans returned to demand more
than they did the year before.
Owners of idle land, unable to finance its cultiva
tion, would relieve the situation by permitting jobless
and otherwise helpless ones to plant gardens. A
strong drive made now in behalf of charity should
create sufficient funds with which to buy seed..
Spring is only a few weeks away, and it is our
task, however unwelcome it might be, to equip the
charity cases with the means of earning his own food.
BETTER COWS IN
Reports From 93 Dairymen
Show Improvement in
•1' Average Herd
Report* from 93 dairymen belong-
ing to the eight active herd improve
ment associative now active in North
Carolina indicate that, the dairy cows
of today are more efficient producers
than they were even one year ago.
"The members of our herd improve
ment associations are scattered in 30
North Carolina counties,'' says John
A. Arey, dairy extension specialist at
State College. "These men had 3.364
cows on test last year which is an in
crease of 211 over 1930. The average
production per cow for last year was
6,433 pounds of milk and 282 pounds
of buttcrfat as compared with 6.185
pounds of milk and 261 pounds of
butter fat in 1930. This shows a de
cided improvement in the production
of our dairy animals."
Mr. Arey says that the dairymen l
found by their record keeping that
352 cows were boarders and therefore
unprofitable. These were culled" and
sold to the butchers.
Another good indication of the
gradual improvement being made in
dairy herds was that in 1931, there
were 33 herds which averaged 300
pounds or more of butterfat per cow.
The actual production of these 33
herds was 7,456 pounds of milk and
330 pounds of fat pfer cow. In the pre
vious year of 1930, only 22 herds pro
duced as much as 300 pounds of fat
per cow. Then last year, Mr. Arey
found two herds where the fat pro
duction averaged 400 pounds or over
of fat. One of these was a Guernsey
herd owned by Thurmond Chatham
at Elkin which produced 8,888 pounds
of milk and 488 pounds of fat a cow
last year, and the other was a Jersey
herd-owned by Aldridge Brothers of
Haw River which produced 8,250
pounds of milk and 405 pounds of fat
a cow last year. These are the first
two herds in the State to go above
the 400-pound mark.
Facts such as these tend to show
that despite the depression, North
' Carolina, dairymen are pressing for
ward in building more profitable
herds over the State, says Arey.
