WORK OR STARVE
Seme people are natural born complainers.
They are never happier than when they are
complaining about something. There are others
wiio are born lazy, and they never get over it.
Th" e are people who quit. jobs to go on the
lelief roll; workers who refuse jobs because
they prefer to take a small amount from the
relief and be lazy. All kinds of tricks are play
ed to take advantage. It is reported that in
one certain whole community it is almost im
possible to get domestic help because these
workers .prefer the easy money from FEI1A.
No doubt favoritism is shown in many instanc
es. If communities know of cases of "cheating''
on these relief rolls and do not repoit them,;
they have no right to kick about them after
wards. ' We wish, something could be done to . scare
the witsout of -these cheaters and make them
go to work- Work is one of the real cures for
most ditliculties. They should be scared as bad
as Sambo, when the farmer caught him in his
hen house. Sambo, telling about it afterwards,
said he was so scared that when the farmer
grabbed, him by the shoulder, he said to him:
"White boy, what you doin' here ?" Morgan
WAY TO STOP CRIME
While definite details are not available, the
idea advanced at the Crime Conference held in
Washington to create permanent national anti
crime organization strikes us as being one of
the best forward steps possible in the realm of
While states and local units should not sur
render all powers to the Federal government,
some method of control should be envolved
which will cope with present-day criminal acti
vities. The widespread use of the automobile
has enabled gangsters and bandits to flee from
the scene of their depredations and take ad
vantage of various technicalities.
..While we are not anxious to widen the scope
of Federal activities, there is no reason why the
law enforcement officers of North Carolina and
Haywood County should not be welded into a
compact organization that will form a part of
a national anti-crime army.
Two suggestions made at the conference
deserve special attention. One is the idea ad
vanced by Attorney-General Cummings to set
upa police "West Point" for training officers
from all over the country in crime detection and
the other was the warning from J. Edgar Hoov
er chief of the Justice Department's Division of
investigation that there could be no permanent
suppression of crime until political pressure on
law enforcement agencies disappeared and there
was established some effective co-operation be
tween all agencies of the law.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION IS VITAL
Physical education is beginning to receive
greater attention in the public schools and lead
ing educators go so far as to say that the health
of school children should be placed on a par with
their mental development.
The emphasis is not misplaced. While the
schools of Haywood County have shown signs
of realizing the vital importance of prpper phy.
sical development for pupils the surface has
been scratched, not cultivated, and there exists
vast room for a more comprehensive program.
The present concept of physical education
goes much further than producing athletes and
embraces all means of building healthy bodies
for healthy minds. It is intended to offer sup
ervised athletic opportunities to every boy and
girl in the school system, by which they will be
encouraged to participate in games and acquire
the full benefit that flow from competitive
sports. ' ,

Vh--n Mother has a real Lad cold
Or isn't feelin' very well,
An' Daduy makei er stay in bed,
1 pprtainlv is hard t' tell
V.l-.r.t we're .supposed t' wear t' school,
Or when it's time for us t' go,
Or if we've pot our books an' things;
ur Daddy doesn't seem t' know!
An' when it comes t' breakfast Gee
There doesn't seem t' be a bite
For us t' eat! But Daddy says
That everything will be all right!
He tells us that he learned t' cook
When he Was just a little kid,
An' when his mother wasn't well
That's only part o' what he did.
But, if he learned, he soon forgot,
'Cause all the toast is hard an' black,
An' every egg busts right in two
Tien Daddy flops it on its back.
Eut I feel kind o' sorry then.
Because he does the best he can
And, anyhow, a cookin' job
Don't look so easy for a man.
No sir, it ain't a bit o' fun
When Mother isn't well an' strong,
An' everything we try t' do
Gets all mixed-up an' turns out wrong;
But when she comes downstairs again
It doesn't take her long t' see
What should be done, an' very soon
She's got things like they oughter be!

Whew! It is ail because of the cold
weather. During the lirigid period I
took a liule colli, but it was not until
Saturday, that I thawed out and n::k--ed
it much. . Saturday morning I wore
my .sweater in the ollice, and while
talking to a big business man I sud
denly felt the need of a handkerchief,
and reaching in my pocket pulled one
out only to find it was my wife's

One man said he was going to get

in case it went through. He wanted

I wonder if some of these women

Since it w-ill be a couple of years
or more before I would be eligible
