the following statement wfts heard
on a Shelby street last week:
"Well, l notice that Governor
Gardner never sends his personal
counsellor, Judge Townsend, to in

for him.”
And that remark, our guess Is
was spawned by the recollection
that the governor did not give the

sanitary inspector,

Last year, as memory serves, the
Shelby srhool board regulated that
none of the local school marnv;
!houid stay out with their sheik
friends In a huddle party after
midnight, for tear that such dis
sipation might hamper their teach

This year the srhool board passed
no such regulations, and from vari

Electric Current Bill Cut Two Bil
lion A Year. Science Due Pub
lic Support.
Research in the industries is
accomplishing; enormous savings
to the public, General John .1.
('arty, , vice president of the
American Telephone and Tel
egraph company declares in a
foreword to a collection of Pop
lar Engineering Foundation, the
research organization of the ma -
jor engineering societies.
“It is sometimes instructive 'o ap
praise the value of scientific re
search, in pecuniary terms,” General
Carty says. “For example, take me
very great improvements in electric
power and electric lighting which
have been made by the industrial
scientists during the last twenty-five
years.
Helps Human Achievement.
‘‘Were it not for these improve
ment* tlje bid which the public is
now paying for electric current
would be greater by more than
000,000.000 a year. A similar story
could be told p| the results of scien
tific research conducted on the tele
phone industry and in the chemicii
and metallurgical Industries
- "But the higher values of scienM ■
fic research must be stated in tirms
of human achievements, the elimi
nation of poverty and disease, the
advancement of learning, the growth
of right, living and good understand
ing among men. Scientific research
is indispensable to the attainment of
all these ends.
“According to the vision of science
life must no longer be regarded ns
a struggle among men for a limit
ed store where one mans gain or'
one nation's gain must be another's
loss. Under the banner of scientific
research we are asked to join with
our feliow-men utilizing the bound
less forces of nature. Such is the
message of 'Research Narratives.'
Pleads For Support.
“American business and commerce
and industry and the American pub
lic should be urged to give a scien
tific research in our universities
and else-where that support which
it so greatly needs. ‘Science, -aid
Pasteur, is the soul of the prosperity
of nations and the living source of
all progress.'
“For all of the benefits which it
confers upon us science asks only
that we provide its zealous workers
with the opportunity to multiply
their efforts in our behalf.
“The progress of scientific re
search in our country depends in
the last analysis, upon the support
which it receives from the pufciic.
"There is no lack of problems to
be solved, all of which in one way
or another, affect the welfare of the
nation, and there will be no lack
of competent scientific investigators
who will solve'them ir the necessary

PATROL HEAD FOR
LICENSED DRIVERS
IN NORTH CARDli
Should Have Law For Klimination
Of Incompetent Drivers And
System Checking:.
Raleigh.- After three to have an
individual driver's license, way pa
trol. during which some 50,000 cats
have been stopped for violations cf
some*sort, mostly for incorrect
lighting, and more than 1,000 arrests
made, the outstanding need is for
a state-wide drivers' license law, ac
cording to Captain Charles D. Farm
er, commander of the patrol.
No matter how vigilant the patrol
men may be. how many cars they
may stop or how many drivers they
may arrest, until there is a drivers’
license law through which tne pa
trolmen cap check up on violations,
there will continue to be dangerous
and reckless driving, according fo
Captain Farmer. If there was a law'
compelling every driver to have an
individual driver’s license thejj it
would be possible for a patrolman
and for the highway patrol gener
ally to keep track of the motorists
stopped and warned, and see how
many of these became "repeaters”
—that is, how many are habitual
violators Of the motor laws. But
under the present law's there is no
way to check up on “repeaters. ’
Although the report for Septem
ber is not yet quite complete, the
figures from eight of the nine hien
way districts show that 17.533 auto
rpoblles were stopped and warned
during September and that 444 driv
ers were actually arrested, according
to Captain Farmer. But there was
no way of telling how many, if
any of these, had ever been stop
ped and warned before, though it is
possible to check up on the arrests.
However, one thing can be done
that is not being done that will be
a great benefit to the state, ac
cording to Captain Farmer. And
that is if the cities and towns, re
quiring drivers’ licenses will com
pel every applicant to demonstrate
his or her ability to drive an auto
mobile before issuing these licenses,
and require the police department
to see that no one drives a car in
any of these cities and towns with
out a driver’s license.
"At the present time, these mu
nicipal drivers’ licenses are purely
revenue-raising propositions, arid it
is only necessary to pay the *1 or
$2 for the card and license tag to
get the license,” said Capt. Farmer,
“as no effort Is made to examine
the ability of the applicants to
actually drive automobiles. As a
result, these drivers’ licenses arc
meaningless and of no value ex
cept that they produce revenue
"If however, each city and town
that now requires such licenses
would actually carry out the spirit
of the law and require each ap
plicant to prove his or her ability to
drive an automobile before issuing
a license, and then require the
police departments to strictly en
force the law, this alone would c’im
inate nearly 50 per cent of the care
less and dangerous driving in the
state and go a long way toward
making the streets and highways
safe.”

various municipalities will continue
to regard thqir drivers’ license or
dinances merely as revenue raising
measures until the state passes a
drivers’ license law.
It will be remembered that the
highway patrol bill introduced in
the 1929 general assembly soon
sored by the Carolina Motor club,
called ior a state-wide drivers’
license, which would have financed
the patrol. But the general assem
bly was afraid of the political ef
fect of this part of the bill end
finally adopted the miniature pa
trol bill in which the state high
way commission would bear the en
tire cost of the highway patrol.
It Is believed now, however, among
those who have followed the prog
ress of the present patrol, that the
next general assembly will not only
materially increase the size of the
patrol, but that it will also add a
requirement for a state-wide driv
ers’ license. In order to give the
patrol an adequate check on high
way violations and In order to elim
inate those who are physically,
mentally or temperamentally un
fit to drive automobiles.

down the street, and ran up the

panted. ‘‘You ordered two pounds
of oatmeal yesterday and, by mis

The lady leaned back on the door

her neighbors to the rescue. "Well,
that's downright funny.” she ob
served when she could speak.
