Politics To the Front
North Carolina wants to wait and see how the tide
[urns before taking any action in the problem of crop
ontrol We do not wish to be critical of Governor
I C. U Khringhaus about his legislative posiiton.
Vet, we do regret to see North Carolina trail along
jehind South Carolina and Virginia in taking a stand
on the tobacco production question when we have
twice as much to gain or twice as much to lose as
those two state combined have to gain or loae.
We fear that politics weighs more in North Caro
lina than prosperity. We are afraid to attempt any
thing until after the primary because action now may
cause some friend to lose a vote. Action after the
primary will he too late to even help prevent starva
tion prices for the 1936 tobacco crop.
l'erhaps if V irginia and South Carolina put the
program across, we will trail along and be "first at
Bethel and last at Appomattox."
Fewer Promises and More Performances
While North Carolina is regarded as an agricul
tural state, having for its main business the produc
tion of farm crops; yet. it has quite a large crop of
jioliticians who even work harder than the farmer
in trying to raise votes. First of all the politician
has to try to tind what the people want and un that
object he hangs his promises. If there is any un
certainty about tbe desires, the politician has enough
instinct to observe carefully. If he sees a mule in
a man's field, he will promise perfect and permanent
telief for the (xtor, down-trodden farmer. But if he
happens to be in a factory town, then comes a flow
of love and affection for the poor laboring man. Fin
ally he reaches the bosses and the money men and
contacts their high powered and highly paid political
boss, and there Ire makes no promises. He simply
thrusts his head into the yoke; the boss screws him
in tight, and there is where the signing up is done.
We would like fewer promises and more perform
ances. We rather a man would promise that when
the feast is spread, he would ring the bell and let
every one get his head in the trough with an equal
chance at all the blessings of government with the
assurance that the oppressors all shall suffer to have
their horns sawed off so others may not be hooked

in the complaint will be gran led
