Have been expecting to see some
thing in editorials or correspond
ence with reference to enforcement
of the dog law in this county. Have
noticed that Buncorabe county has
put on a drive to get rid of stray
and useless dogs, and to have all
others treated so as to be as safe
as possible from cases of RABIES
such as we had here two or three
years ago. At that time many
summer visitors left, and many
hearing about the conditions did
not come. A spurt of enforcement
every several years won't do. We
must see to it that all dogs that
are not worth a dollar or more to
the owners be put out of the way.
Several years ago my brother
in Florida rvas bitten by rabid
dog. He took the regular treat
ment, but in less than one month
he died a most wretched death. He
was violent, and died trying to bite
those who were trying to help
him. Since that I have feared
mad dogs more than rattle snakes.
What about our health officers
and district wardens getting busy
and see. that this lovely summer
climate be not Spoiled for those
who want to -spend the hot months
with us ? Why should not our
farmers and merchants get some
of the dollars that these people
must spend sometyhere in these
mountains? Let the CRUSADE
START AT ONCE.

question to be asked. But first the
facts that lead up to the question.
The Newsome-Lefler book was
chosen by the State textbook
Commission, a group of "educators"
acting under the law made and pro
vided. Their choice was rejected in
favor of the Wrarren book by the
State Board of Education. j
The soundest contribution to the
controversy, from the standpoint
of parties most concerned (the
fifth-grade children) is from the '
pen of Mrs. G. G. Dixon, of Ayden.
Writing from 10 years' experience
in teaching fifth grade children and
after careful examination of the
Warren book, she pronounced it un
suittd for use with children with
minds of fifth-grade development
10-year-olds. The Newsome
Lefler book, to one who has taught
fifth grade children (as I have),
was also evidently far above the
heads of 10-year-olds.
From the beginning it was plsiia
to many, especially those who have
taught fifth graders, that both the
educators and the-politicians had
"pulled boners" that neither board
had chosen a suitable book for 10-year-olds.
However, the State
Textbook Commission, having been
overruled by the State Board of
Education, caused the fctate no
financial loss. But how about the
Their action, grounded in politics,
has cost the State of North Caro
lina $45,000. In return the state
has 150,000 volumes, each contain
ing over 1,000 errors, and it has
received the copyright to the book
and the 1,000 errors. The book
is a total loss to North Carolina.
But is it fair that the state should
bear it? How about prorating
this loss among the six political
gentlemen who caused it? This, ac
cording to the "Mikado" of happy
memory, would be "to make the
punishment fit the crime" and
that is the essence of law and equi-ty.,"'-
