A Wild Party the Cause of It All
Ex-solicitor George Younce, of the twelfth judicial
district, was acquitted of perjury in Davidson County
last week. The indictment was returned on the testi
mony of Younce given at a coroner's inquest over the
body of Sheriff Leonard, who was killed ip a drunken
brawl as the aftermath of a wild party pulled by the
solicitor, the sheriff, some other prominent men and
some "ladies" last February.
All the facts leading up to the killing have hardly
been fully brought out, although Younce and another
man of prominence were charged with the slaying
and afterwards acquitted;
The charge of Judge Harding to the jury on the
perjury charge wa* in defense of justice and i§ worth
The whole affair shows the danger of having offi
cers who do nut stand for soberness, honor, and truth.
The state is left to mourn the death of a worthy man
in most respects, and two good lawyers, one a former
solicitor, have the indelible stain of scandal resting
on them. A wild party caused it all.
' In Dire Need of Help
More homeless hungry folks are being reported
every day. In most cases they are in dire need of
help—not so much in food and clothing as in advice
as to how to earn a living. Most of them stand and
wait for a job. What they most need is to get out
in the country and let some farmer who knows how
get them to buckle down to the job of producing a
living for themselves.
From present indications, unless somebody takes
hold of that class of people, *Cho have no capacity to
set out and produce something for themselves, there
is going to be lots of suffering.
It is a severe indictment that under our economic
system thousands are without food when it can be
produced in abundance. Men are not quite free so
long as they havt to ask somebody else for a job to
get money to buy their food.
Let the government teach men how to make a liv
ing, and then if they refuse to make it, let them suf

TUB DAY AND PWIPAY
Accidental Deaths and Murders
Wake County captured the state championship for
auto murders and accidental deaths in July. We have
the number in a lump sum, those killed by unavoid
able accidents and those killed by gross negligence,
thoughtlessness, or otherwise are not separated.
While there are a lot of people in North Carolina,
it is a deplorable fact that two people are being killed
every day in the year within her borders by auto
A good many of these killings seem to take place
when men are riding with the wrong women, or women
i are riding with the wrong men. Entirely too much
J of this clandestine traffic is going on. Our moral line
j is not being pulled tight. Perhaps it is too weak
Lie stand much strain.
Too Much Money
Another case of too much money is revealed in the
death of Mrs. Edith Rockefeller McCormick, who
evidently failed to get as much pleasure out of life
as have many women of moderate means, and she
lived just as far from her ideals of life as does the
I average housewife. She died poor—in spirit—leaving
a divorced husband and an estranged father; a son
who had married Fifi Stillman, of scandal-suit fame;
and a daughter whose marriage to an old man in the
east shocked society.
She had sociay prominence and business promi
nence; a charitable heart and kind disposition, and
perhaps did much better in life than many other
people would have done under the same (iircum
slances, but money can not purchase lasting pleas
ures or great honors.

A Prayer of Significance
The young negro man who went to his death in
the electric chair at Raleigh last week uttered a
prayer with some significance, which indicated that
the things of the world did not count so much. He
prayed, "Oh, God, come down and ease my mind."
1 A full recognition that God was above and that God
had the power to ease.
The thing that disturbed his mind evidently was
that he had failed to call on God to be with him all
along life's journey, but rather had followed the devil
into a murder plot that cost him his peace of mind
and his life. The devil was able to help him kill, but
was not tible to give him an eased mind.
Help Your Neighbor
The greatest need in nearly every community is
sound, sensible, unselfish leadership.
We have almost lost sight of the need of our neigh
bors' help. During the good times,"toe all had our
own cars, went where we plea:id, when we got ready,
and never came back unless we wanted to. Amid all
this glorious prosperity, we became very independent
and 'selfish, as proud as the cattle of the pastures
when the grass 4s tall and the clover is deep.
Now, we are on the rocks, financially speaking, and
j stuck and fast. We need not wait and howl and
! wail for flood tide to come along and float us off;
; we have got to form an army of honest workers and
I cooperate together to overcome waste and extrava
i gan'ce in our every day life and activities. We must
! have capable leaders who know the equations of life
and business. Without such leadership we are de
stined to drift a long time before we find the path
If you can help your neighbor, get on the job. He
will doubtless be glad to help you. —*

BUSINESS IS IMPROVING
All around us is evidence of an
improvement in business, reflected by
increased buying of commodities and
securities at increased prices. Tire
scared dollar is getting back into cir
culation, and this means prosperity.
Not in all history, perhaps, hive we
seen such outstanding opportunities
for the investment of money. But
these opportunities are- worthless to
those who are unable to take advan
tage of them.
It is impossible to succeed finan
cially without saving. Thrift is a
habit easy to start ill a small way and,
cultivated, means ability to take ad
vantage of opportunities and spells
