Queen of the Home
The physical, the mental, the moral, and the re
ligious progress of man were all stressed at the district
meeting of women's home demonstration clubs held
here Wednesday of this week.
The home that gets the ncessities of life and meets
its obligations in the business, social, and spiritual
realm is the only happy home. All the way through
each exhibition was shown woman in her two most
imoprtant position in life, as the queen of the home
and the servant of all. She is the inspiration of
every member of the family. She looks after the
food, the clothing, the sanitation, and the general
welfare of the child from birth until the last breath
leaves her. It was clearly shown that economy in
time and in expenditures are two of her watchwords.
She begins in the early morning and uses all her time
until she goes t obed. She saves the surplus food by
canning and preserving. She saves the scraps of
garments to make over again and again. She plants
the roses and works the garden; she beautifies the
house and kitchen and never forgets to take care of
the baby and feeds the children when hungry. She
cares for them when sick, and sees that they get their

Remember the Battle of 1931!
It is now about a year since there was an old wagon
going up and down the state called the McLean Bill.
It moved slow. It had to travel rocky, muddy roads.
The way was beset with politicians and representa
tives of special interests. were ambushing it at
every turn of the way.' They were trying to break
it down both day and night. The sparkling bead and
shining coin made men change their opinions. Finally
the old vehicle came home with a big cut in property
tax (not enough) and a state-supported six-months
school term (not enough).
Now, what do we see? Politicians who did all they
could to destroy the old shay are now running all over
the whole state trying to ride on the same old rig that
they'had used all their silent political wires to destroy.
Men who are now candidates for the highest of
fices In the State refused a year ago to lend any ef
fort whatever to relieve the people. Now they are
trying to crowd on the Mac Lean platform, because
they know it is just and fair and a vote getter. Then
—only a year ago—they felt duty bound to help a
few friends of wealth.
The administration at Raleigh refused to help in
the matter of tax reform. Now it is trying to climb
on the Mac Lean bandwagon and extoll its virtues
as a tax saver and a vehicle for more efficiency.

There are candidates running for office now who
fought the Mac Lean bill a year ago—and they are
now trying to grab the reins of government by claim
ing to be for it. Men are quite different when they
want votes from what they really are when it comes
Vim*- tn K»lp fhf fftlln ~
Beware of the man who fought against lowering
the property tax. The fight will be on again, and
some trick will be played again to keep the tax on
the poor and save the rich, either by a general sales
tax or through some other subterfuge.
And remember politicians are nearly always ready
to make fine promises in order to get votes.
Slow To Take Up Gardening
Peope are slow to take up gardening, even when
free seed are offered them. It may be that some had
rather beg than work. Many people need more intia
tive in life. They have depended so long on the pay
envelope and tin can that they have apparently lost
all touch with the primary things of life. They wait*"
for the other fellow to make the job and prepare the
food. They forget that one seed planted in the soil
will bring forth a hundred in the Yet many
of them will eat one grain of corn now rather than
work a little and wait until next fall for a full ear.
We must get away from the idea of grinding the
seed corn for present use. We must look better to
the seed time if we expect a bountiful harvest.
Propitious for Livestock
The low prices of all 'feedstuffs should be an en
couragement to stadily expand the livestock and poul
try industry of the state. Not enough poultry and
poultry products, dairy products, beef and mutton
and pork are being produced to meet the needs of the
state at the present. This is especially true of dairy
products on a home basis. Corn, hay, and other feed
stuffs will not demand such a profitable price in the
markets but will pay a profit when fed to livestock.
The outlook for seeds is not any too height, but
North Carolina needs a larger supply of cheap certi
fied seeds which may be used to plant legumes for |
soil building, for hay, and other purposes

Our Chief Resource
It i& a wise people who would build a democracy
in which the training and opportunities of youth are
not allowed to go up and down with the stock market
but are kept equal, high, and as constant as the life
stream of the people. We must pay on time dollar
for dollar, and interest, too. To tear down is a waste
ful way to pay up. The schools and colleges are the
chief resources with which in the long run the public
debt will be paid. Let us pay off the long-running
debt by the long-run building up of the latent capaci
ties and creative power of the people.— President
Daylight Saving Time
s • .
Daylight saving time seems to puzzle many people.
Many of the large towns are adopting it in an effort
to get the folks up a little earlier.
Country people go to bed earjy and get up early.
Town and city folks generally sit up half the night
and sleep half the day. This accounts for a lot of the
extra cost o.f living in towns and cities. The sun—
the best light in all the world—is perfectly free to |
all creatures, and most of them use it in the day and
sleep at night, except a few slimy worms, night hawks,
and dangerous "varmints." On the other hand, lots
of humans sleep in the day and buy electricity for
night use. *
Daylight saving time will mean millions saved
to the people of the United States if they will only
observe it. As it now is, the farmer is about the only
fellow who uses the day to work and the night U> rest.
It will be a decided advantage when we all get to
gether for pleasure and work. Daylight is an aid to
good works—darkness aids evil.
