National Book Week
The Enterprise appreciates the efforts of the teach
ers in the local schools in advertising National Book
Week and the exhibits made by the various pupils
and classes in the school which are now on display
in the show windows at the Enterprise office. We
invite the people of the community, on behalf of the
school, to drop by and inspect these displays.
We sometimes fail to show due appreciation for the
things others do for us. Especially is this true of
teachers, who spend so much time in trying to train
our children so they will be better prepared to march
on life's highway. It is not so much because we are
ungrateful as it is that we scarcely know what they
Book Week is of much importance to our children,
because their reading goes a long way in shaping
their character. So we need to be very careful about
their books. Bad book?, like bad companions, are
dangerous. And we will save many boys and girls
from taking the wrong road if we will give them the
right books. -
Cooperation Must Prevail
It is gratifying to see Mr. Hoover calling in Mr.
Roosevelt for conference on vital quesitons which will
be "with us as long as President Hoover is in office
and perhaps the whole of the Roosevelt administra
tion. It will give the head of the new administra
tion an opportunity to study the perplexing things
which will confront him before he actually has to
It will be much better for us and lor the country
if we can have a closer fCooperation between the lead
ers of the tw6 big political parties. We have gone
too long'trying to hold "our lead pulling our op
ponents down, rather than taking the lead by the
good works we can do for the public.
The task is so big that we must all work together
for the common good.
A Pat on the Back
A wise old clergyman told the writer years ago that
"If you commend a man for his virtues he will con
fess his faults. If you condemn liim for his faults, hfc
will parade his virtues —defend himself." How true.
When anyone accuses you of a mistake, fault or what
not, you instinctively excuse yourself. When any one
commends you for some particular virtue, good deed
or what not, you modestly depreciate yourself.
Wise parents, managers or any one directing peo
ple, do well to learn the art of giving a fellow a pat on
the back, especially if there is to be any criticism to

NOTICE OF SALE
Unedr and by virtue of the power
of Mle contained in that certain deed
of tract, executed by Victoria Thom
as and Levi* Thomas to the under
signed trustee, dated the let day of
February, 1929, registered in the pub
lic regiatry of Martin County in Booh
S-2, at page 244, the stipulalioas con
tained In said deed of traat not hav
ing been complied with, and at the
reMit of the owner of the indebted
neaa secured thereby, the undersigned
ttaalM will offer for aale at public
auction for caah, on Monday, the 28th
follow. St. Paul wrote a letter to one of the early
churches and started off by recounting the many
things for which he commended them. Then, after
he had them feeling good, he proceeded to rais Cain
with them for what they had been doing wrongly.
They could take their scourging gracefully, and even
gratefully, after they had been so highly commended
for their good actions. We would rather admit our
mistakes than be attacked for them. We all like a
pat on the back even when we know it may be fol
lowed by a "kick in the pants/'—Fuller Swift, Free
masonry and Eastern Star, Los Angeles, Calif.
On Cancellation of Debts
England says she can't pay; France, Italy, Ger
many, aryl the other nations all Siy they can't pay.
The farmers, the merchants, the manufacturers, and
the laborers all say the same thing. What shall we
The foreign nations all say "cancel." We would
like to see half of all debts—public and private—can
celed. It would have a wonderful influence on busi
ness. The folks would not kick on paying two bales
of cotton for a one-bale debt, but they simply can not
pay four bales for the one-bale debt.
If we are to cancel any debts due the United States
by foreign nations, then cancel the claims of private
bondholders on the government also.
It has been quite noticeable that the large private
bondholders want the government to cancel the debts
of European nations so that the foreign nations can
pay off their private loans.
Reduce all alike or none.
Fire destruction again shows a slight increase. For
the first nine months of the year it was $341,050,639,
as compared with $340,713,487 in the same period
last year. . *
We will soon learn whether any good results fol
lowed Fire Prevention Week, which was observed in
October. As a general rule, the loss goes down dur
ing the week and in the period immediately follow
ing, only to rise again soon after. When it comes
to fire, the public has a short memory. Thai short
ness costs the nation 10,000 lives and half a bil
lion "dollars each twelve months.
In normal times the waste is a disgrace. In these
times it is ah unmitigated tragedy. The actual de
struction of property is the least of the total fire bill
—more important by far is the unemployment, loss
of business, and increased taxes that inevitably fol
low. -Cases are on record where whole communities
have seen progress come to an end because of a single
great fire—which could easily have been prevented.
Remember what you were taught during Fire Pre
vention Week, Apply it to the course of your daily
life. And help diminish this terrific yearly loss.
Pruning Is Scientific
In a recent address, Governor Olson of Minnesota,
pointed out the need for governmental economy, and
then said: "However, at the present time we should
guard carefully the way in which government costs
are reduced. If they are cut down in a frenzy, in a
mopd 6f passionate despair, in a temper of revenge,
tjien indeed is the spoilsman likely to flourish and the
technician and expert be cut off."
In other words, tax reduction must be accomplished
with sanity. The kind of "tax reduction" that elim
inates good men and necessary work damages the
cause it espouses.
The kind of tax reduction we need is that which
cuts away some of the maze of bureaus that has
grown up in recent times, principally since the war,
each with its long list of employees. They are an
chored around the necks of taxpayers who are trying
to swim through harsh waters.
These growths and long lists might well be com
pared to the dead wood and long suckers the scien
tific orchardist must yearly prune from his tree. Our
governmental pruning must be done just as scientifi
cally, so that what remains is the trunk and the roots
and the sturdy growth of years with the life-sapping
overgrowth trimmed clean.

VOTERS GO FOR.
AT BALLOT BOX
Amendment No. 3 Is Only
One To Carry, Returns
Insurance agents, aided by the
I catchy if misleading caption on the
: ballots, apparently were successful in
I putting over the Constitutional amend
' ment appearing on the ballots as No.
! 3 and which is for the purpose of bar
ring creditors from insurance assets
of policies made out to wife and chil
dren by husband during his life. Such
policies already are protected after
the husband's death,' 'although many
voters, seeing the term "widows" on
the ballots, must have thought that
was what they were voting for.
Anyway, complete returns from 43
counties as announced by R. C. Max
well, executive secretary of the State
Board of Elections, show a trend so
definite as to indicate that No. 3 was
the only amendment that passed Tues
The vote on No. 3 was the largest
of any of the four amendments sub
mitted, clearly indicating efforts on
the part of insurance agents to get
out the vote. The other amendment
drawing the largest vote in the in
complete returns was No. 4, which
proposed to lengthen the terms of
sheriffs and coroners to four years
from two, which appears to have been
conclusively beaten, and result to in
dicate the deputy sheriffs proved noth
ing like so potent an electioneering
force as the army of insurance agents.
The constitutional .change amend
ment, No. 2, which was most widely
publicized after Attorney General D.
G. Brummitt delivered his broadside
against it, drew next to the lightest
vote in heading for defeat.
Complete returns from 43 counties
gave the approximate vote for the
four amendments as follows:
Amendment No. 1: To increase term
of office of sheriffs and coroners from
two to four years—For, 63,800; a
Amendment No. 2: To provide for
submission of future, proposed con
stitutional changes at special elections
instead of general elections—For, 51,-
000; against, 87,600.
Amendment No. 3: To protect in
surance payments to wives and chil
dren—For 105,000; against 59,000.
Amendment No. 4: To separate so
licitorial districts from judicial dis
tricts—For, 50,000; against, 79,000.
Mr. Maxwell estimated returns from
the State other counties would not
change the final outcome, asserting the
43 counties tabulated definitely indi
cated the trend of the vovting.
The \)fficial vote on the proposed
amendments will not be known until
the State Board of Canvassers meets
here December 6 to certify the re
