without a meaning, it seems.
It seems that the center of activities for
the coming election on the repeal, as far as
Haywood County is concerned, will be
around Canton, since the permanent chairman

candidate, Dr. I). M. Davis, and the chairman
of the dry forces, J. T. Haliey, are all from
Housebreaking, larceny and assault, all of
a more or less trivial nature, appear to have

LOOKING INTO CELLARS
The editor of The Rocky Mount Telegram
telN of a recent visit to a well-stocked cellar,
one that is well prepared for winter.
He took a pee) into the kitchen and saw
the canning in progress which was responsi
ble for the row on row of good things he saw in
the cellar of the mountain home "long rows of
green vegetables, beans, corn, tomatoes, water
melon pickle, peas, in half gallon and quart:
sizes, flanked by a tempting assortment of jams,
jellies,: and fruits for pies. Llackbcrry cordial
and grape juice and a little wine for the health's
sake and for fruit cakes later in the year. Per
haps, if we had probed far enough into t he dark
er recesses we could have found a keg of brandy
for Christmas egg nogs, for enriching certain
foods: Lots of hard work was necessary to pre,
cellar contained a wonderful assortment of
foods. lot of hard work was necessary to pre
serve the fruits and the vegetables. Long hours
were spiint over stoves on broiling days.
"In a certain mountain town we have visit,
ed there is a cellar with more than five hun
dred glass jars of fruit and vegetables and
meats. In the mountains people can their
meats. They have beef from jars, sausage that
tastes like new in the middle of the summer.
Cellars there are a source of pride. In the mid
dle of the winter they light lanterns at night
in their storehouses to prevent the jars from
freezing and bursting. Strangely , even though
they may admit it is cheaper to buy than to
waste hours at labor, they are not terribly
crushed by the depression. This cellar owner
we visited recently will be well-fed in winter
as during the tobacco marketing season.
"The community heeds more cellars, bigger
cellars and more jars in them. This year hun
dreds of unemployed people have canned their
surplus furits and vegetables and this winter
they will reap the benefits of their labors."
SENATOR REYNOLD'S TRIP
Since "Our Bob" Reynolds sailed f o r
Europe and Russia, there have been various
reasons given for his hurried trip. The Fay
etteville Observer comes forth with a rather
new slant on the trip when it says :
"Although Senator Robert Rice Reynolds
declares that his only purpose in going to Eu
rope is to study the liquor control problems in
Denmark and trade relations with Soviet Rus
sia, those who are familiar with "Our Bob"
know that the real reason of the trip is to mail
postcards home from Kjobenhvn and Moscow
to his thousands of Tar Heel constituents.
"There is many a horny-handed son of the
soil and back road filling station proprietor who
worked and voted for Bob Reynolds in his last
campaign because Bob remembered to send him
a postcard from Hong Kong or Shanghai during
his trip around the world some seven or eight
"And it is an even money bet that as soon
as Bob Reynolds lands in Europe pictures of
Hamlet's castle at Elsinore and Lenin's tomb
in Moscow will be as common as performance
certificates in the home of our embattled farm
ers." During the past few days, certain political
leaders have been quoted as saying that Sena
tor Reynolds intends to resign as senator and
accept the post of ambassador to Russia, and
that is the reason he is there now, just looking
After all, these ideas are perhaps all
wrong. Senator Reynolds has always been a
person that craved traveling, and no doubt he
stood it'as long as he could this time at home
Whatever his plans and idea was for going
to Europe will probably, be known in due
time. In the meantime, editorial writers and
political gossipers .are certainly getting a broad
subject, to discuss.
STAY ON THE FARM
W. P. McCuire, editor of the Southside
Virginia News, Petersburg, Va., has a proposal
that deserves wide attention. It is simple and
it is important. And the crux of it is: Why not
keep farm boys on farms?
In pursuing his proposal, he asks 27 preg
nant questions concerning the trend of young
men away from the farm and. possible ways of
reversing its direction. It is certainly obvious
that boys who have been reared' on farms and
have been intimately asociatetl with the craft
of agriculture since infancy, ar best equipped
to make the farmers of tomorrow. And it is
equally true that these boys have been march
ing to the cities in armies, for a great many
years, impelled by the hope of making their
fortune in a life of which they know little or
In the years following the war, this away-from-the.farm
drift added hundreds of thous
ands of boys to the urban population. And when
the depression came, it was an important factor
in causing the worst unemployment situation
in our history. Most of the boys had never
learned any trade especially well they took
any job they could find, and it was usually of a
sort requiring little skill and no training or
aptitude. Thty were the first to be let out when
production slowed. They are likely to be the
last taken back.
We have appropriated millions for agricul
tural relief and created great federal organiza
tions to administer it. Certainly it would be
worthwhile, as Editor MeGuiro says, to go to
the root of th:' farm problem and give part of
the money and effort to evolving a plan to en
able young men to stay on the farm and become
self-supporting citizens. Doing this would pre
vent overpopulation of urban centers, tend to
mitigate employment problems and, as Mr. Mo
Guire says, fits in perfectly with the Adminis
tration's aim to provide a solid economic foun
dation for our country.

Restoring the Past
LEONARD A. BARRETT

A man was being arraigned for minder.
"Where's your attorney?" asked the presiding
"I ain't got no attorney, yer honor," ans
wered the man.
"Mr. Green," said the judge, indicating a
young lawyer standing near by, "take the pris

Accordingly Green disappeared with th.?
prisoner, and. in half an hour's time returned
into court alone.
"Where is the prisoner?" asked the judge.
- "Well," replied Green, slowly, "I heard his
story, and then I gave him the best advice I
could. I said, 'Prisoner, if I were you, I'd get
out of that window and make tracks.' He slid
down the waterpipe, and the last I saw of him
he was passing over the top of that hill half a
mile away." Monroe Journal.

The past fails to interest some per
sons because of their lack of a cul
tural background. All efforts to re
store the past is to them wasted ef
fort. The argument runs something
like this the wherewithal essential
to food, shelter anil pleasure is pro
cured from the present aud not the
past. Vfhat occurreo' a thousand or
only a few hundred enrs ago bears
no vital relationship to present condi
tions. IIow my grandfather lived or

forward, not backward. The past Is
like water over the dam, we cannot
change it, there i " 'o.r.get it.
Let it e confessed that It Is abso
lutely impossible to eliminate the past.
Whether we like it or not, the past is
continually exercising an influence
over us. Hut suppose it were possi
ble to completely do away with the
past, what are some of the things wo
would lose? First,' and perhaps 'most
vnluable,, we wo id d lose the benefit of
our experience. The Very person who
wishes to cut loose from the past is
orie.wflo is continually making the same
mistakes over and over again. lie never
learns from experience. One may be
pardoned for his first mistake, but to
repeat it, is folly. Experience has air
ways been the great teacher, and no
person is so wise as to be able to dis
pense with it. We would also have to
part with much of the inspiration
which art and music has to offer if we
denied ourselves any contact with the
past. Colleges would have to close
many of their lecture halls and li
braries bar their doors. The present
tfffort to "restore prosperity is nothing
new. The N. It. A. has been success

efforts to restore the past should be
acclaimed with appreciation, Money
