To the Editor of The Star
So many are haying their say re
garding county officers, hospital,
health officer and nurse, let its all
have our say.
This writer notes all'the criticism
these important, item.; are getting
from our wealthiest citizens, men
who Can well afford to pay them
hospital bills out of the funds that
the poor and unfortunate have
made for them. Yet they are not
willing to pay a little trifling five
cent tax for a few years to help
preserve their health. So far as the
county agent I think this a most
important office, but not so Im
portant as a health officer or nurse
Mr. Hawkins in his article want
ed to know what the county w-elfa-v
officer does to earn his keep. Sure
ly Mr. Hawkins is not ignorant, to
the many and lasting good things
tliis man J. B Smith has done ami
is doing to tlie more unfortunate
of our county. The many homes he
has found for many fatherless and
motherless children. This alone
would well pay for his keep
as Mr. Hawkins puts it, to say
nothing of the hundreds of Other
good arts that romp through him —
that would not be if it were not for
him and his office. Mr. Hawkins
is like a great many of us—has seif
in mind, and hasn't time or monev
for the poor and unfortunate of
We boost on our good roads, good
crops, fine automobiles, but* can w;
boost, on the health institutions we
have—the one thin? that mears
more to Cleveland county ihan all
others combined. Aren't we really
ashamed of it. No health officer,
no nurse, no county hospital, and
when the state will go 50-50 with
us, and the Duke fund is also avail
able. Our county commissioners are
wise and honorable men and more
honor will be theirs when they
have the five cent, tax.

“You All” Said To
To Be Too Friendly
The New York Times has started
another discussion about the man
ner In which “you-all” la used in
the South, and there Is one school
of thought which Is contending
that Its use Is singular and another
contending that Its use Is plural.
While contributors are wrangling
over those two mooted angles, Tiie
World enters a broadside against
the use of the expression “you-aU”
in either tense because “of Its In
sufferable friendliness.” The World
points out that a person can say
"you” and make it rebuke, or make
it mildly scold, or make it caress.
But “you-all” is different. It’s too
friendly to be used harshly.
That is an interesting by-product
of the muchly disputed use of the
words, and It is rather gratifying
to find that one northerner doesn't
try to cram a perfectly good ex
pression down southern mouths
the wrong way. The southerner
uses “you-all” just as the north
erner uses “you folks." He never
thinks of using it with singular ap
plication. If a northerner has
heard a southerner say to one per
son "you all come over to see us,”
it is obvious that the person's fam
ily is included in the invitation.
It could not be otherwise.
