Face Forward
Now that Democracy has won, it needs to take a
firm stand to give to the people of the nation a reign
of good honest government, and to set this country s
policies on a square, honest, and friendly basis with
all the people of the world.
The people are in need of bread, not beer; sober
ness, not drunken debauchery, The minute it bows
down to the bar, the brewery, and the Bowery, it will
begin to decay and lose its power to serve the people
in the paths of righteousness.
The one central thought of every man elected today
should be to serve the people honestly, truthfully,
faithfully—to the end that our moral, spiritual, finan
cial, and business activities may be strengthened and
the world be blessed.
No More Tax On Gasoline
Kot we should not put any more tax on gasoline.
The drivers of motor vehicles, which comprise only
about 10 per cent of the people, are keeping up every
load and highway in North Carolina, and it would
be grossly unfair to tax them any further.
Then who is it that is trying to saddle him with
more taxes? Is it the railroad, the tobacco factory, or
the bond and stock holder?
We must remember that the motor vehicle driver
is already paying $20,000,000 taxes in North Caro
lina, which is by far the heaviest tax paid by any
other single class of people.
The people as a whole should look with suspicion
upon any movement to pile more tax on gasoline.
The scheme is doubtless coming from quarter
where profits are good and they are trying to save
their own hides by piling the burden on the 10 per
cent of the folks who own cars.
County Consolidations
There is already signs of a movement to consoli
date the counties in North Carolina. While there
may be some grounds for such a movement, on the
whole we fail to understand where so much good can
come from further consolidation. It looks more like
the spirit of the strong gobbling up the weak and
further centralizing power in a few hands. There, are,
of course, some folks who are so sorry for other
folks that they want to handle tlieir affairs for them.
In fact, they seem to think that small units are unable
and unfit to handle their own business.
In looking over the North Carolina counties, we

will likely find that the big counties have failed to a
larger extent than have the small counties.
Buncombe County bonds are not worth a fourth
as much as Dare County bonds. Doubtless if Bun
combe had been sliced up into about four counties a
few years ago, their total indebtedness would not be
half as much as the debt of the one county now is.
Where will the saving be in county consolidations?
All this argument about lowering the cost of opera
tion should be studied closely before being swallowed.
It would mean more cost for the courts by increasing
the mileage of witnesses and jurors. It would cost
the people who have business with the county seat
much money and inconvenience in going to and from
the courthouse. *n
And what good could it do, except to give a few
people a little more power?
We had beter let things stand just as they are for
a while, and not tear down a lot of courthouses and
have to repair and enlarge others, and tear up lots of
records and have a general overhauling of every
Now, all the counties that can grab a few other
counties may vote for consolidation; on the other
hand, the counties that are to be gobbled up may not
think so well of it. Watch the Brookings Commission.
Little Money Spent
One of the features of the political struggle end
ing Tuesday that is commendable lies in the fact
that not much money has been spent by either side.
It is apparent that the Democrats saw there was
no need to spend much, and likewise the Republicans
saw there was little to be gained in putting out a lot
of cash.
This is one campaign that people have gone into the
campaign with a vim. They were so determined that
the old-time $2 bills have been scorned. Nothing but
big money could move them, and nobody had any
big money to spend on an uncertainty.
One other things should be stopped, and that it
having candidates for the high office of President of
th» United States running to the four corners of the
country to try to get elected. We need a more in
telligent elecorate, which does not have to be whipped
into line every election, but who are able to think and
act for themselves. .»
Whose Day Is Armistice Day?
World Call.
None who saw it will ever forget the wold joy that
surged over the war-torn western world on November
11, 1918. The news that the horror of four years of
hatred and slaughter was at last ended christened the
day forever as a day of gratitude to God for peace.
During the fourteen years since 1918, each succeed
ing Armistice Day has seen a more determined at
tempt on the part of the military-minded to capture
this holy day of good will. The peculiar psychology
of ex-soldier organizations, backed as they are by
military officialdom, is everywhere striving to divert
a day so potent in its teachings for peace into an oc
casion for preparedness propaganda. It is now in
creasingly used for military parades and saber-rat
tling speeches.
Peace-loving people must hold this day. With
more men under arms than there were in 1913, with
Germany restive and Manchuria seething, with dis
armament apparently still far away, Armistice Day
is needed to remind the world that humanity once
sent twenty-six millions'of its young men to death in
a "war to end war." Now we know that war can
never end war, but we dare not surrender ,the ideal.
If war's madness cannot end war, then we must end
it in the cold and deliberate sanity of peace. The
manner in which our churches and communities cele
brate Armistice Day this year will have a share in
determining whether or not there will be yet one more
