It seems difficult to realize that
by the end of the current week
six Christmas Days will have pass
ed since the "Hoover buggies" ap
peared on the highways of . ; North
Carolina. These never-to-be-for
gotten vehicles were a grim re
minder of the despair that gripped
the State from Currituck Sound
to the peaks of Mount Mitchell.

Fortunately, Christmas Day of
1937 will find hope and optimism
prevailing throughout the State.
It seems fitting at this season
to write about some of the reasons
for this new spirit and the "look
ing-ahead" attitude of the'people
back home. Here in Washington
there is feverish activity among
North Carolinians. Thousands of
Tar Heels now residing in the
National Capital are making plans
to rush homeward for the holi
days or to greet relatives and
friends who will come here. Mem
bers of Congress are likewise anxi
ous to be with their constituents.
This binding of families and
friendly ties is one of the finest
evidences of this season of "peace
on earth and good will toward
men."
This is also a period of stock
taking. It is the proper time to
analyze gains and losses.
For the farmer, there is new
hope in the Farm Bill. It combines
features of both compulsory and
voluntary control of crop produc
tion. Its objective is to maintain
price levels under which the farm-

ers sell their commodities. Night!
sessions in the Senate to secure,
passage of this bill before Christ- j
mas offers evidence of the vital
interest that the Congress has in
the farmer. Differences between
the measure passed by the House
and that passed by the Senate will
be adjusted in conferences.
An indication of the thorough
manner in which the bill was
finally drafted is found in the fact
that it required lengthy debate on
the floor of both houses. In the
House of Representatives ten days
were devoted to debate on the (
Farm Bill, the longest time given
to any legislation within the last
fifteen years.
For the wage-earner, the Holi
day Season brings hope for new
wage standards and working con
ditions. The Wage and Hour Bill
will be a live issue at the regular
session convening in January.
This is perhaps the most misun
derstood of all legislation. It would
affect only industries engaged in
interstate commerce. The local
merchant, the local druggist and
the local butcher would not be af
fected, except insofar as he would
be helped by higher wages in the
community paid by industries en
gaged in interstate commerce. The
fact that our splendid Governor
and the capable members of the
North Carolina Development and
Conservation Commission have
Seen fit to frown upon the practice
of trying To secure for the state
industries that employ "pauper
labor" working under "sweat shop"
conditions, is evidence of the new
thought in North Carolina with
reference to wages and hours.
For the business man, there is
hope in the fact that shortly after
January 1, the Congress will turn
to a new tax legislation. It is wide
ly regonized that taxes are defin
itely retarding business. Another
reason for hope on the part of the
business man many signs
that indicate new harmony be
tween government and business.
There is no reason why the gov
ernment or business should view
each other with suspicion. One of
the finest things that Congress
can do is to help eliminate this
atmosphere of mutual suspicion.
It is time to realize that every
thing rests with business. OuT|
government could not exist, nor|
could labor be employed, unless
business moves ahead.
Changes are needed in both the
ideas of government and the idea
of business. In my opinion, there
is no attempt in Congress to pen
alize business as such, but rather
to eliminate harmful practices
that exist in business. Fortunately,
the great body of business men are
in agreement and it is only a
stubborn minority that seeks to
retain the advantage of the
"Hoover Buggy Days" that is
causing the trouble.
For the country, there is hope
in the new attitude of members of
Congress. Legislative proposals are
scanned more closely. Evidence of
this is found in the careful atten
tion given to the Farm Bill. The
fact that it required more than
thirty days to pass this legislation
indicates the comprehensive way
in which it was studied.
These things alone should stim
ulate new confidence. It is much
needed. Lack of confidence is
holding back economic progress.
It is retarding employment and
there is every reason to believe
that once the Congress charts its
definite course, as may be expect
ed with the convening of the reg
ular session, business and labor
will make a new attempt to solve
their respective problems and
move ahead together.
The hope for this, and the rea
sons for this hope, add to the
Christmas joy of citizens every
where.

MEET AT GRASSY CREEK
i
A meeting of the Young Peo
ples Union of the Statesville Dis
trict of the Methodist chureh was
held Thursday with Grassy Creek
church, north of Elkin, with a
splendid attendance. The young
people of Grassy Creek presented
a pageant "The Gift of the Magi"
which was greatly enjoyed.
At the close of the program a
tempting refreshment course was
i served.
Pueblo Indians have six cardin
al directions—east, west, north,
south, above and fcfelow.
Vapors given off by Santa Maria
volcano, in Guatemala, contain
hydrofluoris acid —an acid which
dissolves glass.
Less Monthly Discomfort
Many women, who formerly suf
fered from a weak, run-down con
dition as a result of poor assimila
tion of food, say they benefited by
taking CARDUI, a special medicine
for women. They found it helped to
Increase the appetite and Improve
digestion, thereby bringing them
more strength from their food.
Naturally there Is less discomfort
at monthly periods when the system
fyis been strengthened and the vari
ous functions restored and regulated.
Cardul. praised by thousand* of women.
!* well worth trying. Of course. If sot
benefited, consult a physician.
