Seventeen ol the pupils were brought to a
Keidsvilk hospital for treatment of in.jiuTes,
none of which, miraculously enough, will prove
fatal. .Most of the victims of the accident sus

possibly, some, fractures.
This circumstance, in pleasing contrast to
all too common tragedies incident to the school
bus business does not remotely obviate the
necessity Tor thorough- investigation and fixing

'or no mat ter what defense evidence may
be produced,. it stands to reason that the driv
ing of a crowded school bus is an occupation
calling lor the exercise of extraordinary, in
stead ot merely reasonable care. At whatever
sacrifice ol speed in arriving in time for the
first bell, the bus should be so driven as to stay
upright and safely on the road, even if every

A school- bus crash at the very beginning of
the vear, without fatalty, may save, lives during
the coming session that otherwise would have
been sacrificed. Drivers and the State, which
as overlord of the schools is now controller of
the bust's, should take the warning and example
to heart. Raleigh Times.
WATCH OUT FOR THE CHILDREN

Childhood and youth are again going blithe

From this day on to next June they have
the right of wav on every city street.
During the next nine or ten months the
business of going to school is the chief concern
of childhood and vouth.
And they have the right of way.
It is a right which every driver of an au
tomobile is bound to respect, not only in' spirit
but also in law.
Children cannot be expected to realize and
assume the responsibility for their 'own' safety
which every driver of an automobile should
feel it a duty and privilege to assume.
It must be expected they will romp and

That is childhood. We would not have it

approaching motor-car, But the motor car
driver must always watch' out for them.
That is the responsibility yvhich goes with
mature years and the privilege of driving one
of these modern juggernauts through the
crowded traffic of our busy city streets.
Let's watch out for the children and make
the streets safe for them all the time. The
Rock Hill (S. C.) Herald.
THIS THING CALLED CASH
It is related on a former Moore county time
merchant that he supplied a young Negro farm
er through a crop season. The farmer had a
go6d year and settled promptly with the time
merchant. After paying his bill he walked
across the street to another store and began
making extensive cash purchases. The time
merchant, who watched him go to the store of
his competitor and walk out with an armful of
goods, began to chide the man. "Look here,"
he said, "I have been carrying you all of the
year and this is a fine way to show your appre
ciation, spending your cash with my competi
tor." "Lawsy, boss," replied the astonished
.Negro, "I sure am sorry. I didn't know you
sold for cash !" Moore County News.
, If there ever was a man yvho loved these
mountains and the natives, it was Thomas
Price, who met a horrible death Sunday after
noon near his cabin on Lick Stone Mountain.
He not only loved the people of the hills, but
he showed his loved for them by giving and
providing for many of them the necessities of
He spent thousands of dollars in this coun
ty among the poor, and he intended to spend
even more during the coming years, because
the more he stayed among them the more he
learned to love them. He was never known to
turn anyone away from his door. He maintain
ed a well-filled medicine cabinet which was
available to the entire community. His pantry
was always filled with food which he generous.
ly gave away. His circulating library was the
source of much entertainment and educational
value to the neighborhood.
During one of his recent visits to Waynes
ville, he stopped in this office for a chat at which
time he remarked, "When I am in these moun
tains I feel like I am among my people. I feel
more at home here than anywhere else." He
ended his conversation by saying that when he
retired from business he wanted to spend the
l est of his life here. He retired in May, and had
been here ever since.
The ones that will no doubt miss Mr. Price
most will be the children of the Allen's Creek
community. Every Christmas he remembered
them with candy and during the school term
provided supplies for the soup kitchen.
The Asheville Citizen said editorially:
"The news yesterday that Thomas Price
had been shot to -death in Haywood county Sun.
('ay afternoon cannot fail to have shocked the
people of this section profoundly. Th;t a man
like Mr. .Price should have been killed as he
was killed is a terrible tragedy in itself. It is
one which must, for many reasons, cause the
deepest distress, : :
"Mr. Price came to Western North Carolina
for a vacation more than twenty years ago. lie
fell in love then with this mountain country,
established a summer home on Lick Stone
Mountain in Haywood county, and as he had
gradually retired from his duties as one of the
most important. railroad executives of the na
tion had been spending more and more time at
t his home.
"It was not our fortune to know him but
all the testimony has been that as a citizen of
Western North Carolina he was an exceeding
ly valuable acquisition; that he was a kindly,
generous, genuinely democratic man, deeply in
terested in the welfare of his mountain neigh
bors and eager to aid in the advancement of
that .welfare.'. He maintained a free circulat
ing library and a free drug dispensary for their
benefit. His other philanthropies had made him
"That any one should have been moved to
take the life of such a man that he should have
beeh slain as he was slain, is an appalling thing.
It is important to note, however, that the news
reports make it clear that those who are ac
cused of his death were not natives of the re
gion but newcomers to it. The people of Hay
wood county who knew Mr. Price loved him.
They thronged into Waynesville yesterday to
pay their tribute of sorrow at his bier. They
will give the fullest support to the authorities
in seeing that justice is done in the courts.
."But that the mountains of which he had
made himself a part should have been crimsoned
with his blood must cover all of us who love
these mountains with grief for them as well as
grief for him."

Held In Price Slaying
Tie may wear last ; year's straw - hat, his
finger nails may need manicuring, his vest may
hang a little loose, and his pants may bag at
the knees; his face may show signs of second
day's growth but don't you call him "the old
man." He's your father; For years he has
been rushing around to' get things together.
Never once has he failed to do the right thing
by you. He thinks you are the greatest boy on
earth, bar none, even though you plaster your
hair back, wear loud clothes, smoke cigarettes
and fail to bring home a cent. He is the man
who won the love and life partnership of the
greatest woman on earth, your mother. He is
"some man" and not-"the old man." If you
win as good a wife as he did, and if you turn out
to be half as good a man, the chances are you'll
have to go some. Reidsville Review.
We Americans are queer people. We worry
our heads off thinking up bad things on folks
until they die, then worry trying to find good
things to say about them.
Perhaps it was only to be expected that a
back-to.the.soil movement would develop as
people began coming back to earth. Ex.
