Whein Anybody Can Save
State officials are saying a lot about lowering the
cost of the schools this year under state administra
tion. We would not for a moment deprecate the serv
ice the state has rendered, but it is very easy to see I
where the saving has been—practically all in salary 1
cuts of teachers.
If a comparison could be drawn, there is no doubt ;
but that there are many other businesses in the state
that have operated with a greater ratio of saving than
the schools. The merchants have cut more, the farm
ers have cut more, the lawyers, the doctors, the print
ers, have all cut heavy and deep, thereby saving large
And it might have been that the old system would
have saved a large sum, too. Anybody will save when
they arc forced to do so.

Sweated Too Much Already
Mr. Charlie Schawb, the great steel magnate, is
going to sweat us again. He says, "The country will -i
pull out by one means —sweat."
That is a tough pill to put in the Jnouths of far
mers and laborers who have already sweated them
selves to starvation and to death.
Mr. Schwab says, "There are no rich men in
America, 1 am afraidi Every man is afraid. I don't
know. We don't know whether values we have now
are going to be real next month or not." Still Mr.
Schwab wants to sweat the folks some more.
The truth is that Mr. Schwab is not a good doctor.
He and his gang have sweatee! the folks too much al
ready, and they are dying in their weakness and
poverty. The only trouble in business today is be
cause a few manufacturers, banks and trust combina
tions have robbed and bled the producers too much
already and now the people are sweated weak and
bled dry; they are losing their homes by the hundreds
It would be better for the masses if the wealth of
the giants was scattered to the four winds of heaven
than to have to sweat and bleed under the lash of
The accumulation of great wealth by those who
dared oppress has generally meant destruction and
perhaps Mr. Schwab has ground for his opinion that

j Time For Another Draft
America met her last emergency by a draft. Let's
meet our present crisis with another draft.
Just 15 years ago we heard that overseas a great
battle was raging, which, if not checked, would mean
the loss of our Commerce, and perhaps our homes on
this side of the seas might be endangered and the
overseas investments of the wealthy Americans might
be destroyed. • •
To avert such a calamity, we Americans, of one
accord, got behind the draft bill, which called for all
the best young men-in"the country to come up to
headquarters and register for service. They were ex
amined and all who were found fit were set aside and
dedicated to the submarines, the torpedo, the machine
guns, the shrapnel, the poison gas. They were re
quired to give their bodies and their blood, to the last
drop if necessary, to guarantee the people of this coun
try happiness and freedom from the hand of an op?
So far, nobody has complained about the draft nor
the war, and we crushed Germany.
I Now, we have a new picture: of people
in idleness; business stagnation that is appalling; we
| have mothers who are mourning their fat e of starva
| tion and homelessness that is myre appalling, that the
| sorrow for lost sons on the battlefields of France.
We need another draft—or conscription—because
) we are face to face with a more serious condition than
' when we went to war in 1917. We need to draft the
j wealth of those who have it to take care of the poor
and pay the taxes. Of course, this idea will be called
communistic and undemocratic—and the rich will
howl at such a prospect—yet we submit if it was right
to draft the sons of the fathers and mothers of this
country in 1917, to sacrifice their lives for the honor
of the country, that it is just as fair and just as hon
orable to take from great wealth enough of the pelf
that has been squeezed from the brow of labor to
the taxes of the country.
Every man who comes up asking the votes of the
people should be required to tell the voters whether
or not he stands for the cost of government staying
on the shoulders of the poor, or whether he stands
for raising the taxes on incomes of th e wealthy.
Electric Power Is a Big Asset
Beaufort News. t
A recent report of the Department of Conservation
* and Development shows that North Carolina still
leads the South in the production of electric power.
Production last year was somewhat less than the year
before, probably due to a decreased demand, but it
was still ahead of all Southern rivals. A total of prac
tically two million kiowatt hours was produced from
* water power. - —'
When business begins to improve, no doubt the de
mand for eectric power will increase, and the big
companies yperating in the State will be able to sup
ply whatever is needed. The ability to get power on
reasonable terms means a great deal for the manufact
uring industry in North Carolina and for the welfare
of all the people. North Carolina already ranks very
high in manufacturing and its industnes will continue
to expand. Like other kinds of business manufact
uring has been taking a little breathing s|>ell, but it is
getting its second wind now and will soon be going
stronger than ever before.
