TIME TO STOP AM) THINK
Saturday night at the Older Hoys' Con
ference' banquet, we were impressed with the
manner in which the young men of that confer
ence listened to the speaker of the evening, as
he brought them a message that will linger long
in their hearts, and will influence them to live
a life that "is connected with higher power,"
as was so clearly and appropriately presented
by the speaker, Mr. C. N. Walker, of Asheville.
The first thought one has when a banker
gets up Lo address an audience is that his topic
will bv along business lines, but Mr. Walker
merely mentioned business and the present
economical'era. He did state, however, that he
iid not know when the end of the depression

that moiv had happened during the past 12
months" than (hiving any KM) years in the his
U'ry (:!' tlii' world, aiuf ha;. ,.-V"rything was con
Mr. Wt'il.k'e'r strt s-cd the -fiHt t hat unless a
t.tisiness "i.--' .hitched t divine power and not
just woiUily tilings, that it is destined to Jail."
He not only made the statement, but he 'gave
.some instances' .that proved -.his point.
.There has not been a tinie in the. history
of .our nation when man needed, divine power
more than at the .present time, yet as a rule,
man is farther awav and is seeking the help ol
divine guidance less than at any time,
1 his is true m almost everv citv. It is
true in Wavnesville.
We know it is true here because on last
:-u:idav night there were less than 100 people
in Waynesviile who attended any church ser
vice whatever, and regular services were held,
and the weather could not have been given as
an excuse, because it was not cold nor raining.
So we go back to Mr. Walker's statement,
which can be applied to an individual, business,
community, state, nation or world, "unless we
are hitched to divine power rather than worldly
things, we are destined to fad."
During the boom of '25 and '26 we refus
ed to listen to those who said "it can't last, you
can't continue to make money like this forever."
We didn't listen then because we thought it
would last and we. would, continue to make
money. Mr. Walker's warning statement
can be linked with that of the wise warnings of
'23 and '26, but how many will heed the warning?
WHAT IS THE OLDER CENKRATION MAK
ING OF THE YOUNGER SET?
Some neople argue that the present gene
ration is on the way to the dogs, while others
: maintain that the older generation was worse
in many respects than the present younger set.
On either side ot the 'question much argument
could be presented to-uphold either statement,
but we maintain that in the younger set there
are some as good as their parents were, and
others that have taken on modern ideas and
ways and have gone beyond the limits of gene
rations of the past, but after all it can usually
be tracked back to the home. We cannot ex
pect the child to accomplish more than he
is encouraged to do at home. Conversations
in the home have much weight upon children.
Some few nights ago while going home
from work after dark, we came upon a small lad
perhaps 4 years old, trudging along alone, tak
ing his own time and braving the dark like a
man of 40. We questioned him to find if he was
afriad, only to get the answer in a quick boast
ful voice that he was "too slick to be afraid."
Evidently meaning that he prided himself with
the fact that he could get out of any trouble
that might arise.
That street urchin did not read that phrase
from some wild west magazine or detective
novel, but had heard grown-ups talking of such
thing's. This leads us to believe more than
ever that the present generation becomes just
what the older generation makes of them.
WALTER E. MOORE
Judge Moore has so long been a leader in
the political, civil and judicial life of this moun
tain section that his death brings a sense of
personal bereavement to the people of all the
Early in his career as a lawyer and po'i
tical leader of his county, Judge Moore was giv
en honors by his people by election to the Legis
lature. There his talents and his popularity
were recognized in his election as Speaker of
Judge Moore was a sturdy individualist in
a region where independence and self-reliance
were regarded as cardinal virtues. Yet he recog
nized the value of teamwork in the upbuilding
of Western North Carolina, and his sagacity
made him a counselor whose judgment was
much sought in all public movements.
On the Superior Court bench, he discharg
ed his responsibilities with the ability, serious
ness and devotion to the public good that foster
ed the people's respect for law.
As a useful citizen in private and public
life, Judge Moore will long be remembered by
the people of North Carolina. He was one of
the last of that generation of leaders in the
state who forged their way to prominence and
wholesome influence by struggle and native
ability, amidst conditions and circumstances
the trying nature of which the young men of
today, with all their problems, have little un
derstanding. Asheville Times.
POLITICAL JOI5S WHICH CAN RE SPARED
One-third of the political places in the fede

positions are available Jor political appointees
upon a change of administration. The salaries
attached to these positions total more than
125,000,000. Millions of dollars could be sav
ed every year by elimination ol such of these
places as are not needed. Here is an opportuni
ty for a real and sizable stroke on behalf of
economy and efficiency in the national govern
ment. New ory Evening Post.
The fact that corn is being used as fuel in
a number of rural communities throughout the
corn belt has touched ofF another controversy
in the Middle West. Hundreds of individual
families have adopted the idea, and it is said
to be spreading from the farms to the smaller
It is claimed that 10 bushels of corn will
give out the same, amount of heat units us a
ton of coal. At 20 cents a bushel corn as a fuel
would be worth eight dollars a ton. .Good east
ern coal costs more than that per ton delivered
to the corn belt home, though poorer grade of
western coal doesn't cost as much. Opponents
or the ."'burn corn" idea claim therefore, that
there reallv is no saving m cost; that burning
corn will only save to put more miners out of
work and f urther aggravate the unemployment
situation. They argue that its a lot of bother
keeping a corn fire going and that it just isn't
morally right to destroy iood when there are
so many hungry people m the country.
On the other hand advocates of "corn heat"
claim that at the present price of corn it is
cheaper than coal heat; that burning corn will
reduce the surplus and thus tend to increase
prices and that it is the only way Tanners have
of getting rid of the crop without depressing
the market. You can find a division of senti
ment on the subject. But, right or wrong, the
"corn burning" idea seems to have taken hold in
earnest this time, and only time can tell wheth
er or not it is a sensible and economic thing to
do. Mooresville Enterprise,
