BICYCLE RIDING IS DANGEROUS
An appeal to school teachers and parents
to urge youngsters who ride bickes to keep their
machines under control, especially when pass
ing or approaching motor vehicles, was made
by D. II. Lasley, director of safety of the Caro
lina Motor Club.
"Many youngsters who formerly rode to
school in automobiles that are now standing in
the garage on account of exorbitant license and
gasoline taxes are now using bicycles," Mr.
Lasley said. "These youngsters naturally get
a kick out of riding bicycles with their hands
off the handlebars. Sometimes they ride with
hands in pockets or arms folded."
"Most motorists experience fear in overtak
ing or meeting bicycle riders, especially those
with hands off the handlebars, as the young
sters may lose their balance very easily. Motor
ists should sound their horn and proceed very
cautiously in passing cyclists.
"Teachers and parents should stress the
importance of cyclists keeping both hands on
handlebars and feet on pedals when meeting or
overtaken by motor vehicles, in order that the
bicycle may be under control. Care along this
line may pay big dividends in avoiding tragic
and deplorable accidents as it is obvious that
a majority of motorists and cyclists have not
realized the potential field of traffic mishaps
opened up by youngsters riding bicycles that
are not under full control."
What might have been a serious accident,
but for the quick thinking of an automobile
driver, happened in front of the post office here
recently when a youngster on a bicycle tried
to pass between two cars while he was outracing
the cars. Just as he got in front of the mov
ing cars, he struck one and was thrown into
the street, but fortunately the cars were being
driven slowly and the boy was unharmed except
tor tne iai; to tne pavement which was mostly
it sung or nis lianas.
Under this same subject the matter of skat
ing snould easily be applied. There are entirely
iuu inaiiy cnnaren tnat are injured and killed
every year because of carlessness while on
sKates and bicycles, and the time to avoid such
accidents in our community is to warn the o hilrl
ren of these dangers now and not wait until
they are hurt, and maybe killed. If a warning
uuim teacn tnem to be caretul, we suggest that
uieir riding devices be taken from them.
Physical and mental beauty are both much
to be desired.: However, physical beauty lies
not deeper than the skin. What would the
beautiful feathered pheasant or the picturesque
plumed peacock look like with all the feathers
plucked away ? The French poodle is one of
the hne looking specimens of the dog family,
but just shear him and he becomes hideous.
Then there is the old hound with long flopped
ears, possessing no color or beauty from a physi
cal standpoint, but the best and truest friend
I have had was just one of those hound dogs.
You could kick him around but he'd come back
and lick your hand. To do something for yon
was but to understand. Real beauty oftentimes
is not to be found behind blended colors but
.occasionally in the skull of an old hound dog.

Cheer up, there still remains 66 days until
Christmas and ten of these are Saturdays.
Christmas, this year, comes on Sunday, which
we imagine will eliminate- the usual hash and
soup dinner that always makes its appearance
on the table the Sunday after.
ABOLISH THE GRAND JURY
Ancient forma of trying accused criminals
and of settling legal disputes seem absurd in
the light of modern knowledge. , There was
Trial by Combat, in which accused and accuser
fought with sword or lance, and the survivor
won the case. There was Trial by Fire, in which
the accused was made to walk over burning
'coals. If he could do it without yelping he
might be adjudged innocent.
Women accused of being witches were
tossed into ponds. If they sank and drowned,
the court decreed them innocent. Men accused
of murder were stretched on the rack, tortured
by the boot, dragged by horses. Superstitions
and omens often influenced judges in deciding
a man's fate.
Later, dawniner civilization bronchf lio-lir
to the Dark Ages. Trial by Jury was instituted.
The right of trial by a jury of one's peers be
came a cardinal point in British common law.
The whole history pf legal procedure, as we
have seen, is one of trial by error. Outworn,
unjust, inefficient methods are discarded for
better methods. There has always been room
for improvement in the functions of our courts,
and there is still room for improvement.
Superior Court Judge Hoyle Sink in his
cnaige to tne Macon county grand jury in
Franklin made a sane and splendid suggestion
to improve North Carolina legal machinery and
to save the state about six hundred thousand
dollars a tar. Judge Sink has, he says, never
seen a grand jury perform a task "that was
worth a hill of beans." Grand juries, as he
points out, never have the opportunity to do
more than repeat the work already done by
magistrate and by prosecuting attorney. Today,
with means of communication so certain and
so swift, crimes are instantly reported in most
instances. Magistrates and prosecutors have
no excuse for sending a man up for trial unless
there is reasonable evidence of his guilt.
But there is another important function of
the grand jury. A grand jury is charged with
examining the books of the county, with in
vestigating the conduct of magistrates and
justices of the peace, with inspecting the poor
house, the jail and the courthouse.
Yes, but what does a grand jury ever ac
complish? Grand juries are never composed
of expert accountants capable of auditing the
county's books. "I could spend ten days looking
at the county clerk's books and I wouldn't un
derstand them," said Judge Sink.
Moreover, in too many instances, grand
juries are influenced by political consideration,
by friendship, and in some shameful cases by
The uselessness of the grand jury, as wise
Judge Sink says, is not their fault. The good
men composing such a jury do the best they can.
But they are not needed to preform their first
important function set forth by law, and they
are incapable of preforming the other.
Grand J uries, save in emergencies, are as
out-dated as Trial by Combat, as Trial by Tor
ture, as Trial by Superstition, Judge Sink is
right. The grand jury should be abolished.
Think of it by discarding a piece of rusty
useless machinery, the State of North Carolina
can save $600,000 a year. Isn't it worth it?

OOOD MEMORY RULES
Forget each kindness that you do as soon as
you have done it; -.
Forget the praise that falls to you the moment
you have won it;
Forget the slander that you hear before you
can repeat it;
Forget each slight, each spite, each sneer
wherever you may meet it.
Remember every kindness done to you what'er
it's measure; '
Remember praise by others won and pass it on
Remember every promise made and keep it to
Remember those who lend you aid and be a
Remember all the happiness that comes your
way in living;
Forget each worry and distress, be hopeful and
Remember good, remember truth, remember
heaven's above you,
And you will find, through age and youth that
many hearts will love you.
THE FINDING OF HAPPINESS
Entertainment and happiness are quite
different things. Distracting pleasures, that
take us away from ourselves and our cares for
"a time, and that may be very wholesome and
good, and happiness are very different things.
When the game is over or the curtain is rung
down, then we are with ourselves again and
the thing that makes for real happiness must
be something that has independent abiding and
that doesn't really require the showman of any
sort to give it reality. Happiness after all is
a very homely thing, just as likely to be found
in a quiet,, simple place or when one is busy in
an every-day duty as it is out in the bustle of
the pleasure or the thrill of varied excitement.
And it does seem that the more time and energy
we give to the attempt to run down happiness
in these adventitious ways the more likely are
we to miss it altogether.
We needn't, and we mustn't, ignore excite
ment and variety and change, or scorn them as
if they were foes to our real good. They bear
their small part in the great and worthy and
always difficult task of creating a happy life
but it is only a very small part, and giving them
a larger pkee for a very great deal of the un
happine3s that has crowded the world. Culti
vating right moods; disciplining oneself in a
kindly spirit and a truly Christian outlook will
do more to bring abiding happiness into one's
life than all the running here and there and all
the doing of exciting things that any favored
place in life can make possible. So we really
shouldn't speak of findintr hanninoss at nil hut
rather of cultivating it, as of ashy and delicate
nower tnat needs patience and favoring soil and
the kindly dew of heaven for its nnnvisVimoTir
And yet that figure is not perfect either, for
nappiness is one oi tne strongest and most en
during things in all the world. When it ia at
its best no blast of possible misfortune can
Kiu it. ine wew autlook.
From the number of letters recentlv re
ceived regarding the work that is being done
in Western North Carolina on the matter of
tne nve-at-home program, we must realize that
we are being looked upon as one of the leading
sections of the state along this line. ,We have
letters asking for information as to' how the
program was put across, and the best answer'
we knew w ar. 'i tied cooperation among all citi
zens of this pin t of the state. This i not only
works in live-at-home grograms, but always
wins out in other things.
If we'd get the Reds out of-the country,
maybe we could get the country outiof the red.
