Typo;i!i,hk'al errors are the bane of the
existence of every newspaper man (or woman).
Lucky is that one wild reads his paper after it
lias come from the press to find that an issue has
been published in which there are no errors. Tf
there is anything which causes one to want .o
murder the whole force, it is to find that his
favorite article has been "messed up" through
the dropping of a line or the misplacement of
a letter. But come to think of it there are less
errors in newspapers than almost any line of
work ' considering., the number of operations
through which news must pass before it is
passed on to the public. If a reporter happens
to Write down the word Sillie when the one
'phoning in the news says Billie, it is just too
bad, and after he has collected his news there
are about 100.000 chances, a newspaper man
has figured out, for human errors in a single
newspaper page and a like number of mechani
cal errors before the job is complete. Take the
front page of the average and figure there are
one-quarter of a million separate operations be
fore the copy is converted into newspaper form.
Count the number of errors and divide into a
quarter of a million and you have the number
of errors or the ratio for each operation.
Lucky is the newspaper person who can
tfet a paper through the press without an error.
WHAT IS SUCCESS
Asked for the secret of success, one of
America's greatest financiers said:
I'll tell you how you can double your income
in a comparatively short time even treble it
or quadruple it. You don't need to have any
more ability than you have now, and you don't
need to know any more than you know now. You
can be the same human machine you are now
and accomplish vastly more for yourself if you
will adopt one idea only. This is the idea. Simp
ly DO the things you already KNOW and STOP
doing the things you already know you ought
NOT to do.
This inevitably brings to mind the old story
of the salesman for a farm magazine who soli
cited a subscription from a farmer. In his sales
talk he told the farmer that the magazine would
make a better farmer out of him. "Shucks !"
replied the farmer, "I ain't farmin' half as well
now as I know how." Monroe Enquirer.
A TINY MORAL
Congressmen were somewhat scandalized
at the sigiht of a child getting its dinner from
its mother's brea3t in the House gallery," so
much so that the mother was asked to retire
. with the child. The House doorkeeper spoke to
her. He admits he had never seen anything
like that in his 40 years' service.
... Perhaps the Representatives are bottle-fed.
Anything out of the routine disturbs them.
Nonchalantly they vote billions to provide peo
ple with dinner, and here comes along a little
mite of humanity, helping itself, without Con
gressional resolution, committee report, filibus
ter, imposition of the gag rule or bigstick blud
geoning on the part of the President. They
couldn't endure it,
There may be a little moral for Congress,
men in the-incident; that i3, a return to self
feeding might help us all. Charlotte News.
ALMOST REPULSIVE. THIS
About the only kind thing Vj .-ay of the
policy of the State in laying its sales tax again -t
the homeliest provisions, fat back, meal, mo
lasses, turnip greens and whatnot, is that thi.
is going to make it easier for the collect ir.- to
get the ivoney an 1 for the merchants to keen
Over against that asset is the liability,
ilamaging and unwarranted on its face, of the
State pressing with the same relent le.-.s brutal
ity the humblest and hungriest of its citizens
as it most affluent, and luxuriant.
The sales tax was once characterized by
a high State official who is still holding office
as "a tax on poverty" and that was when none
contemplated reaching down to basic foods.
Now that this margin has been covered
and every conceivable purchase made subject
to the same tax, it will become, in many cases,
a levy against penury and abject destruction.
When the intelligence and conscience of
our citizens come face to face with the equities
of this now exemptionless sales tax, it is not
thinkable that they will think well of it. Char
AGAIN IT IS "ELY TIME"
It is well to take note of the fact that again
it is "fly time." None of the pests that annoy
humanity demand more presistent warfare. Fly
swatting should be preached in and out of seas
on. In this connection the public should be ac
quainted with .some of the facts about the ordi
nary house fly. It has been estimated that the
female deposits more than a hundred eggs at
a time in unsanitary organic material. The life
cycle from egg to larva (maggot), to pupa, to
adult male or female fly requires but ten days.
A week later, 50 females, under favorable con
ditions are ready to deposit a total of 50,000
During the summer season, nine genera
tions of flies may result from one female that
laid the first batch of eggs in the spring. Dr.
L. O. Howard, noted entomologist, has estimat
ed that if the offspring of a single overwinter
ing female were to survive through nine gene
rations, descendants in the fall would number
over five and a half trillion.
These insects are regarded as having play
ed a leading part in causing epidemics of ty
phoid fever throughout the country. What
they may do in 1935 depends on what you do
to them. Swat the fly .'The Morganton News-Herald.'

INFANTILE PARALYSIS AND THE
Automobile accidents statistics in North
Carolina for the first five months of the year
might be re-written into this language:
'If all the victims in this state of the dread
ed infantile paralysis should die, and this is
highly improbable, the automobile in North
Carolina would still be THREE times more dead
ly. The deaths so far from the disease total
less than 10, and the automobile in North Caro
lina in the first five months has claimed ,')n7
lives, more than 10 times the casualties from
From actual statistics, one careless auto
mobile driver is more deadly and more to be
feared than a case of infantile paralysis. And
that statement is not meant to minimize the
danger of the disease, but to show that we are
prone to overlook the greater menace for some
thing more spectacular and far less deadly.
The next time you are on the highway or in
any place where a car runs, you should rememb
er that you are in far greater danger than living
next door to a dozen cases of infantile paralysis

THE TAI.KXT OF LOYALTY
I itiimhe ) yalty in a man-or woman
i believe the nudity of loyalty makes
up for short eomitms an individual
miwht have. I like to se an employee
lny.il to his employer. Though every
one else feels that his employer is a
failure I like to see his employees
stand up for him. I feel at once they
are W orth more as employees. I think
i vi. iy one feels just as I do about it
When I hear an employee speak dis
parinKly of his employer I invariably
feel like a-skiiifi him why he doesn't
ipiit his job and allow some one else
to hold it who will appreciate it. I
like to see a man loyal to his town. I
think one can be conscious of all the
short comintrs of his town and still be
loyal to it, I think every citizen should
la.- loyal to his town or find a town that
In- could be loyal to anil move there.
It is importune to the town that those
who live in it are loyal to it. but more
important to the individual himself.
The tow ;n can easily survive the fail
ure of. a few citizens to accord it their
loyalty but -can the individual afford
lo abandon his loyalty?. It seems to
Hie that do-.n so removes an important
mil. a necessary anchor. I like to see
a man loyal to his- family and his
friends. Without such a quality' he is
only the husk of a man. I like to se?
a man loyal to his best self. I care
little how much he has been able to
Kather to himself of the things the
world (-alls riches if his attitude to
ward life a nd the world in which he
lives is one of loyalty to his best im
pulses, his best ideals, his more worthy
concepts. I believe if a man possess
this loyalty all the others will be add
ed unto it,

A TRUE LEGEM) TODAY
JVIany are familiar with the old legend
about the village of Atri, which had a large
bell that was rung only in time of great need.
For years it had not been used because Atri was
prosperous and contented. The bell rope was
covered with green vines and trailed to the
ground. One day a poor horse, turned out to
starve, seized the fresh green tendrils in his
teeth. The ringing of the bell, when he pulled
the rope, called attention to the beaat's pre
dicament, and he became a well-fed ward of the
