The Breakdown in Law Enforcement
Two Angicr policemen were convicted of killing a man
after they had cast him in prison. They not only
performed their duty as (tolicemen, but went further
and performed the most dastardly and cowardly deed
that man can |ierform?beat a man to death after he
was in their power.
The jury promptly convicted them. The judge
l>assed a rather trivial sentence of two years' impris
onment, a sentence which would fit well in a hog
stealing case, perhaps, but hardly in keeping with the
crime these men committed.
The courts seem to stand by and let lawyers free
too many felons; and when the lawyers sometimes
fail, the judges too often make it easy on the law
breaker by furnishing light sentences.
Probably the next step will lie a petition to the par
don board. The truth is that in our American crim
inal procedure there are too many ways of esca|ie,
causing life to lie very cheap and crime tti run rampa
When our lawmakers pass laws against crime, they
measure and weigh crime and its effect on society, and
consider the pro|H-r way to restrain and curb crime,
which should be a fair guide for the courts and execu
tive departments Vet, many times, when the courts
and the executive departments get through with the
law, it is little more than a tattered rag. Itiis prac
tice keeps the country filled with roving, wandering,
sneaking murderer;-, rapists, robbers and thieves.
Most criminals are familiar with the law and the
penalties against crime and know the end thereof is
death but they take the chances and depend on
men to adjudge their crime and tem|ier their punish
ment with mercy. Therefore, they go on from one
case to another. We need more folks on the side of
Tobacco Prices This Year
What will be the price of tobacco this coming fall?
is a live question in the minds of all tobacco farmers
just now. And the question is very easy to answer
by asking another question: How much tobacco are
the farmers going to produce?
If the farmers produce a big crop, it is certain the
price will be low. On the other hand, if they produce
a reasonable size crop, the price will be at least fair.
Therefore, the farmer is the only man who ca<i J
answer this question. If he chooses to plant a big
crop, spend everything he- can get to produce it and
work himself and his family to death, he will have
low prices and come out behind next fall.
If the farmer will take his own experience, reduce
his crop, spend less to grow it, take better care of
the acres he does plant, he will get more dollars for
his small poundage than he will for a big poundage.
So it is up to the wisdom of the farmer. Many
have kicked and cursed because they could not do
as they pleased. Now they are what they have said
they wanted to be?free; and it will be seen if they
actually know how to handle the situation with their
freedom unguided by a thoughtful and willing hand.
The Voice of the People
The attack by big business against Dr. Frank P.
Graham, president of the Greater University of
North Carolina, is being met in a noble way by a
large number of people who love truth, honesty and
No, the spirit of freedom is not ready to bow down
to mammon just yet, and when a group of politicians
and grafters attempt to relieve him of the duties as
president of the University, they are going to hear
the voice of the people in no uncertain terms, and
which voice they will not be able to silence.
Investigating Lobbying Activities
Thai fellow Shouse, head of the American Liberty
Leagae, so-called, had much to uy the other day
about the Black Senate committee commandeering
telegram* on file in telegraph offices to aid its investi
gation of the power lobbying activities a few months
ago. He pointed out the danger and magnified it
many times, giving rise to the thought that possibly
Some dark spots in the league activities might be un
covered rather than the freedom of the people would
? be threatened
The man who has pulled fair with himself and his
government won't mind Mr. Black's committee in
vestigating his telegrams. In fact, he would welcome
an investigation. It is that group of shysters and
lobbyists who skin the people and who don't want
their telegrams investigated. That group think noth
ing of their unethical acts advanced by wire,"air or
post use. but the bunch is the first to yell when an
investigating committee starts work to uncover un
fair practices and advance representative govern
ment for all the people.
Wealth and combined interests have kept the wires
running into the Nation's Capital hot with directions
for congressmen and senators to follow for a long
time, and no wonder the "flibberty league", protec
tor of wealth and damnable practices against the
down-trodden is crying to high heaven in an effort to
stop the investigation by refusing the committee the
use of telegrams that |xiured into Washington by the
tens of thousands.
Shouse and his league are so decidedly on the side
of wealth and its slave drivers, that they are fast
becoming recognized as among the greatest reasons
why President Roosevelt should continue in office an
A Job for the Courts and Others
Since going into action late last summer, the en
larged North Carolina State Highway Patrol has
well demonstrated its determination to make travel
safer on our highways and place a true value on hu
man life. The records show that the patrol has more
than paid its way in a material sense hut also in an
other than can be measured in terms of dollars and
cents; for, while one can record the deaths occurring
on the highways, it is a bit difficult to say just how
many are enjoying life today through and by the ef
forts of the guardians of our roads.
There are. still too many deaths on our highways,
but it is safe to say that the number can be lessened
by a greater cooperation on the part of the courts
and the people with the patrdt. Success or failure,
to a decided extent, in making the roads safe rests
with the courts and the people, and the cooperation
of these two is to be watched closely before the pa
trol can rightly lie censured or commended. .
Records show that the patrol is doing its part, and
in standing at the threshold between death and hap
piness on the highways, its members and their of
ficers ap|)eal for aid for everyone that their work
might prove more effective. That the aid an cooper
ation of the courts and the people, in general, in aid
ding highway safety work is appreciated is shown by
the following letter from Arthur Fulk, Director of
Highway Safety Division, to Hon. H. O, Peel, judge
of Martin County's Recorder's court;
"The writer has noticed with a great deal of in
terest and satisfaction the cooperation which your
court is givin this Division in cases of violation of
the Driver's License Act. It is only by such evident
cooperation that this Act can be made effective.
"The writer has further noticed that your county
has an excellent record in the State showing a large
decrease in accidents and fatalities.
"It is the desire of this Division to cooperate with
you at all times to the end of moving from the high
ways of the State those careless and reckless and in
elligible drivers who are a hazard to life and prop
erty . ..
Gentlemen and Hogs
El kin Tribune.
This little paragraph from Charity and Children
says a lot for the few words employed:
"It is mighty hard to make a safe driver out of a
man who is not at heart a gentleman. A man who is
a real gentleman will violate few rules of motor
travel. A road hog is just a hog on the road and it
is hard to make a careful driver out of a hog. Many
|>eople manipulate the highways safely even though
the road is infested with porkers. We sometimes take
lime out to marvel at that . .
When highway accidents occur, they can usually
be charged to somebody's carelessness or indifference
to the rights of others. If the foot pressed against
the accelerator was always that of a gentleman, there
would be a noticeable cutting down on the appalling
death toll on the highways.
Automobiles, as they are built today, have em
braced every element of safety that the manufactur
ers can think of, but they are not fool-proof, and in
the hands of a don't-glve a-darner they are potential
To speed is attributed a large portion of the high
way casualties, but speed in itself ran be blamed with
but few of them. It is when speed is mixed with care
lessness and indifference that the undertaker gets a

IF YOU ARE CONTENT WITH YOUR TOBACCO YIELDS!
IF you are not using Orange, and are in
terested in the possibility of getting an
extra $40 or $50 per acre for your tobacco,
then you should be very interested in Orange.
Because, a series of tests by 37 growers on 71
competitive plots, over a four year period just
completed, shows that Orange produced an
average of $49.40 per acre more in quantity
and quality leaf.
Now, do a little figuring. Take the number of
acres of tobacco you expect to grow. Multiply
that by, let's say $40. Isn't that
extra money worth trying to get?
Thousands of Orange users ?
growers like yourself, have been
getting better yields with Orange. Some here
averaged more than $50 per acre better?some,
less. But most of them have been getting back
much more than the few dollars extra they
pay for Orange.
If your results are like theirs, you will make
real money with Orange. So, investigate
Orange carefully before you place your order.
It means money to you.
