JANUARY 2fi, 19:W 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 Aiiiil.l i : f 1 1 . ! hi rjiil ;mvnm tlsp XI st:iti'! 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 stantly changing. 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 transmontane territory. 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 the House. 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.

POLITICAL JOI5S WHICH CAN RE SPARED One-third of the political places in the fede ral service, according to the National Civil Ser vice Reform League, could be eliminated as ab solutely unnecessary anil probably would be eliminated if they could not be used as patro nage, lint when a reduction in the goveinmeii' .'service is made it 'is the employees -who are al- likely to be. -overpaid.- The postmaster at : : . ; ' i : !i.

'.service instead of '.'-being, political figures, xhv'u: salaries would be around halt of these amounts, ll, indeed, the places themsehcs wcie not abol ished as superfluous. More than 1:55,000 .federal 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. BURNING CORN 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 '. towns. 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.

NEXT WESTERN UNION FEBRUARY QUOTA NAVY FOR THE A nation-wide movement is under way to educate the people of America in the importance of buying American made goods and thus keep more dollars at home instead of sending it abroad where it is paid for pauper labor and living conditions are far below the standards of America. The movement is a splendid idea and should have the cooperation of every true American citizen. The February quota for the NaVv will be eleven men. This is the word received by the Chief Petty Officer m charge of the Asheville Station. Any men between the ages of 17 and 25 who are interested in the Navy and have at least a 7th grade education are urged to call and see the officer in charge of the station. Chief Tor pedoman H. E.
