Ill IMU'NKEN DKIVEKS
Jhiiino; the month of November the State
Hijrnwav Patrol alone arrested 115 drivers on
the "'North Carolina highway system for oper.
at injr motor vehicles while drunk.
Laiye as this total is, it is oniy indicative
of tin great amount of drunken driving on the
highways of the State. The State Highway
i'atro! is admittedly too small to adequately
police all 'he roads of the State. The great
: majoiity of diunken drivers never come in con
act with the patrol. Those arrested by it rep.
resent only a fraction of the drivers who ope.
rate their cars while intoxicated, to the danger
of themselves and the public at large.
There is no difference of opinion between
wets and drys as to the danger of drunken auto,
mi. bile drivers. All sensible citizens agree that
The mixture of liquor and gasoline is one that
cannot "be tolorated on the roads. Yet obvious.
ly gasoline and liqui.r are mixing on our road
With lf)5 persons biought into the courts
on this charge Tat month, the courts had an
opportunity to demonstrate,, as it must be deni.
onstrateil that drunken driving will not be tole.
rated in North Carolina. If the courts
month in and month out, would give to drunken
drivers brought before them the severest pun
ishment permitted by the law. there could be',
cieated in North Carolina an .understanding
that drunken driving was an unhealthy busi
ness, even when it did not result in accident or-death.
On- hundred and fifteen examples in North
i aroim.j d the determination cf the courts to
dean the Mate's highways ol h irse.nower nro
ptlled bj uiunk would be a health lesson at
this time when the death and accident toll on
the-roads of the State is mounting at a. rate
which .should alarm every thoughtful citien
Kaleigh News and Observer
WILL EH RING HA IS RL'N FOR
Several close observers of political develop.
i ment.- in the state have predicted that Cover,
nor .). C. IJ. Ehringhlus will oppose Senator
Josiah W. IJailey for that office in llKifi.
No statement has come from the execu
tive office at Kaleigh, however, and there might
nc; be any foundation for the rumor. Whether
there i.- anything to the rumor or not. it seems
that with over two years to fill the office of
governor, and with the situation in the state
a- it is at present, that it should be enough to
keep one man'.- mind occupied, without being
bothered with discussing plans for another poli
tical office two years hence.
It might be that by the time Governor
Khringhaus has filled the office of governor of
this state four years that he will hp glad M' tie
opportunity to go back to his quiet home in
JJuabeth City and resume his practice of law.
We had hoped that the Covernor would be
w.ntont with his present office and not seek anv
i thi i , and m th'tt way he could devote his en
tin time to the state up to and including the
lat minute he is in office and not have to divide
his time with the state and with personal aspi
rations for another office.

punishment in North Carolina finds us without
jiieconceived ideas on the subject finds us,
ind td, with a woeful lack of conviction either
way. Every time arguments as to its barbarity
and grjr.someness are put forward, we becom
converts i) the caus of abolishing executions;
but .i list a; easily do we revert to a more sav
age state upon the news of some particularly
iev( king crime.
Today, it happens, we a.re all for capita!
; i.s.nment and especially for the immedf
execution of one 'leaner Autrev, Alabama Ne.
gies convicted of having held a struggling
tour.year.old child m a tub of scalding water
until it died. Tomorrow we mav ! open again
to argument, but today we are of the opinion
that capital punishment is too good for some
alleged humans. Charlotte News.
