Clean-Up Week
Cleaning up is one of the most important things in
life. Truly, cjeanliness is next to godliness. We get
both help and happiness from cleanliness. v . *
Next week is to be clean-up week in Williamston,
which means that the old closets will be swept and
aired out good, the back yards will be examined and
all the old rubbish removed which might serve as
germ breeders, especially of flies and mosquitoes.
It only take a little extra effort to clean up the
houses, yards, and lots, and by so doing we j?et pleas
ure, beauty, and many other joys that contribute to
the satisfaction of the mind. 1
Williamston should do its part towards cooperat
ing in a perfect clean-up program.
Gangsters Overrated
i i "
We still believe the gangsters overestimate them
selves, and it is rather pitiable to see so many people
idolize them for their ability and power. Of course,
they have ability to know an evil wink and know how
to recognize the bad, but when it comes to pulling for
justice and righteousness they can't be counted. The
gangster is the man who makes it necessary to have
locks and keys and to have large police forces.
It is to be regretted that so many folks look on
the Jesse Jameses the A 1 Capones as great when
the most that can be said is that they were . un
restraine&flevils.

Approaching a Dilemma
There is still plenty of politics in New York. And
much of it is a very unreliable kind of politics, the
kind that seeks self-profits and pays little attention
to the welfare of others. '
We are rapidly approaching a dilemma, when we
reach the place that most of our national laws have
been passed to conform to the wishes of one city,
the people of which have amassed many fortunes un
der the direct protection of the laws they have in
fluenced.
PAID fe&i
Last year a well-known farmer in this county (name, fur
niched on request) used three brands of fertilizer on his land.
BRAND "A" was used on 5 acres. The crop was sold ft
an average of $59.65 per acre. _ T _
H BRAND "B" was used on 4 acres, The crop was sold at an
average of $61.33 per acre.
AND THEN - GET THIS
On seven other acres he used PHILLIPS' VERI-BEST

but it yielded him— ■ , ■"""

The Romans Had a Word for That
Christopher Billopp m Baltimore Evening Sun.
As a result of my solution of the porblem of find
ing the Latin equivalent of 75th anniversary, my fame
in "this field has progressed to such an extent thai I
taW bteH to supply a title for the three inm^
dredth and fiftieth anniversary of of the first English
settlement on Roanoke Island, which will be celebrat
ed in North Carolina in 1935. I make it the Terceo
quinquagesimalennial celebration. I have only scorn
for the two professors of Latin at th e University of
North Carolina who are reported to have fled to the
woods when the sam e question was put to them. v
This Carolina celebration, by the way, is interest
ing, signalizing, as it does, the anniversary of what
would have been the first permanent English colony
in America if it had been permanent. My suggestion
to those who attend is that they will find it worth
while on the way to the celebration to stop in Virginia
at the tablet which marks the spot where the first uni
versity in America would hav e stood if the university
had ever been established.
Too Much Favoritism
The railroads and bondholders seem to be favor
ites with the reconstruction loans.
It will never bring prosperity to 'make the rich
richer. The railroads will not prosper by having the
government pay their debts for them. What the rail--
roads need is a prosperous country so they can get
business. When all the people have money, business
is good. When only a few have it, business is always
bad. It is better for the government to help a lot of
folks a little' than to help a few folks a lot.
"Bum Weather" t
Boone Sketches in Watauga Democrat.
The man who pens "Sketches" took occasion, as
most columnists do, to butcher the king's English in
the issue of March 17. H e referred to the weather as
being "bum," and "bum" he mistook it to be. Rain
had found its way through the roof of his domicile;
the rain was followed by snow, which, borne on a 60-
mile gale, chased the thermometer to points around
zero and caused the family to shiver around a stove
which could not be supplied with fuel fast enough.
And then came more rain, more freeze, more frost,
mor e misery. Yes; the scribe thought h e was exper
iencing "bum'' weather. But on this morning's mail
there came a letter to the editor —a letter from a good
old friend. Oh the single sheet of the welcome mis
sive there was pasted that particular "Sketch" which
had to do with "bum" weather. And in bold writing
underneath were these words: "W r hat God hath made,
call not thou "bum!' "
And as we read those words, we scratched our col
lective brow, and were made by some invisible power
to wonder just why we should call anything which has
its beginning far beyond the realm of human intelli-r
gtnee a "bum" article. The rain may delay our plans
and our ambitions . . . but is not rain just as important
to the growing vine or fig tree as the sunshine? The
sntiw perhaps is something for children to enjoy and
older people to worry about . . . but each snowflake
carries within its crystal bosom life-giving elements
which are deposited in the soil. And wind and frost
and freeze and clouds and sunshin e all combine togeth
er to carry out a plan which belongs to the infinite
... a plan too large—entirely too large—for poor lit
tle man to comprehend. "What God hath made, call
not thou 'bum' " —a mighty good suggestion, brother,
and we'll try our best to remember it!
