(From Asheville Citizen.)

\ Token of Honor
(From Charlotte Observer.)
There is a great (leal of the judicial
and political leadership in Cleveland
county. In the.' respect, Cleveland is
distingnished among North Carolina
counties and it Is a fine tribute to the
character jf Mr. McLean that he has
been aide to enlist the solid and en
thusiastic support of this leadership
It is a recommendation in worthiness
tlfcu will he accepted by the state in
the nature of a popular tribute. ’Ph"
Cleveland county endorsement of Mr.
McLean is of a nature to constitute
one of the most eloquent tributes that
has come the way of any public man
in this state.
“He Who —”
(From Charlotte News.)
“That old campaign didn’t do you
half as bad as it did me,” Governor
, Morrison is quoted by The News and
i Observer, as having said to Max Gard
ner, when the latter dropped in on
chief executive at his Raleigh Man
| The exaction of the office, the un
[ usual press of executive business
which the present governor has had
\ to handle during his administration,
j has evidently made him a little jeal
I out of the liberties and freedom from
! such cares as overwhelm him which
i are enjoyed by Mr. Gardner and which
j the candidate who drove the governor
! hard under the wire is especially de
. lighting in these days.
| Whereupon, as the. two chatted in
| the exchange of pleasantries in the
l governor’s office, the Raleigh paper
I says the governor was reminded of
j ’-he story of the Jew retailer who ex
| pressed keen dislike for his brother
j Jew who operated a wholesale estab
lishment across the street. ""
“Why don’t you like Isaac?’ he
was asked. “He likes you!”
“Veil,” the retailer replied,, “It’s
dis vay. Yen ve wass young Isaac und
j me courted de same girl. I got her. I

Man For the Job.
(From Statesville Landmark.)
Mr. Fred P. Latham, a farmer of
Belhaven, Beaufort county, is a can
didate for state commissioner of ag
riculture, and by nil accounts he is the
best equipped man offering for the
job by all odds. Those who know him
I ray he is a practical farmer and a’sue
cessful one: that he lives on a farm
and operates, tW poccessfully; that he
is progressiva ftnd fully abreast of all
modern farm methods. He has been a
member of the state hoard of agricul
ture for 13 years and is fully inform
ed as to the conduct of jthe state de
partment of agriculture, which he of
fer? to head. He is, therefore, inform
ed not only as to the modern theories
of agriculture but he has by actual
and personal experience demonstrated
his capacity to make a farm go in fact
and not on paper only. This paper has
incidentally come across this informa
tion as to Mr. Latham, nnd it seems
to us that he is the sort of man the
farmers would want for commissioner
of agriculture. For that reason we
[are making an exception in editorial
mention of a candidate simply to let
the farmer readers of this paper know
the sort of man they can get for the
job in which the farmers are most
interested. If they want a practical
and successful farmer for commis
sioner of agriculture they have the
opportunity to put Mr. Latham over.
Afraid of MeAJoo.
(From Charlotte News.)
A promient Charlotte man, return
ing from New York where for sev
eral days he was in intimate .touch
with outstanding business and finan
cial leaders, brings back the word that
in- Republic circles up there, they are j
conceding that Mr. McAdoo will be
nominated and what is causing more
consternation among themt they are
•saying out in the open that his
chanes for election are good.
These Republicans expressed the
hope that the Democrats would select
some other hian because they do not
like Mr. McAdoo and especially the
things for which he stands, and it was
because of their belief that there are
several others the Democrats might
■nominate, who could defeat Mr. Cool
idge and who, at at the same time,
would be more favorable to large bu
siness interests that they voiced their
fear as to Mr. McAdoo’s chances.
(New Bern Sun-Journal.)
Statistics compiled by an insurance
company covering most of the cities
indicates an increase in murder from
9 per 100,000 of population in 1922, to
10.2 in 1923. They show that the hom
icide rate has doubled in 20 years. The
number of murders committed in this
country in 1923 shows the regular an
nual increase in “the American mur
der wave,” and indicates that we are
slowly drifting toward a degree- of ac
quiescence in crime and criminal
traits which, if not sternly delt with,
will permeate every stratum of so
ciety. The percentage in New York is
half that of Chicago, about one-third
those in Cincinnati, while Memphis
heads the list—twelve times jjs many
as New York. Jacksonville, Florida,
a close second, Nashville third, St.
Louis has four times as many as New
York in proportion to population.
The records show that the indis
criminate sale of fire-arms—espec
ially by the muil order—is one of the
r.iAst fruitful sources of murderous
Value of Playtime.
(From The Thrift Magazine.)
A prominent psychiati ist recently
made the statement that great danger
lie' in failing to prepare properly for
leisure time in early life. Muny peo
ple wait until they can ho relieved of
cares and burdenr. with the hope that
they can he relieve'! of cares and bur
dens with the hope that they can then
enjoy life. A tragedy lies in the fact
that when this time does come they
are utterly lost and do not know how
to enjoy the leisure whieh they have.
Thrift in the use of leisure Is more
than a personal problem. It is a home
problem, a community problem, and
a National problem.
The foundation for a happy, health
ful and useful life are laid in the
early habit forming years, and child
hood's hapiest memories are tff play
times at home. Joseph Lee. president
of the Playground and Recreation
association of America, says: "The
home needs the child playing in it and
the child needs the home to play in.
Mothers and fathers, brothers and
alters, ljave the same need. An essen
ce part of the life of all of us is in
this play. A mother who does not play
With her child is not a mother; a vital
part of the relation has dropped out.
The great educators from Plato to
Froebel. have taught us to play with
our children not only on their account
hut on our own."
The avernge individual has eight
hours a day of work, eight hours of
sleep and eight hours of leisure. A
city of 200,000 people has at least a
million leisure hours every day. The
way in which these leisure hours are
spent determine largely the kind of
citizenship the city will have.
An optimist is a man who is always
surprised at the weather while a
pessimist is a man who is always dis
gusted with it.
