Sees Just One Side
The News and Observer continues
to fawn at the feet of the Eastern
group in the legislature and is so
determined to make the industrial
section of the, state pay its tax bills.
In answer to a comment by The
Charlotte News in reference to the
plundering attitude of the MacLean
forces, Mr, Daniels seems to take
the remark as a personal affront.
He would have the public know that
the contingent in the legislature
that Is seeking to shift the burden
of taxes from their own pockets to
the purses of Piedmont Carolina
are “not plunderer!* but patriots.”
Just so! Anybody has always been
a patriot in the estimation. of The
News and Observer who cramped his
mind into the narrow groove in
which that newspaper habituates
and anybody who thought contra.'
ily was fit to cast into the outer
darkness. It is not otherwise now.
In the judgment of Mr. Daniel',
there is only one side to this vexa
tious problem in the legislature
and that’s his side. He who dares to
think in opposite terms may as well
prepare to be villified and casti
gated. That’s his method of argu
ment and debate.

j New York Times.
j Woodrow Wilson, termed by some
■the most austerely intellectual of
presidents, is revealed as one of
the most warm-hearted of sons in
three hitherto unpublished letters
I to his father, obtained by Thomas
F. Madigan, autograph dealer.
To “my precious father.” Wilsqn
attributed “the hereditary wealth I
possess, that capital of principle, of
literary force and skill, of capacity
for first-hand thought." As his tal
ents and experience grew, he real
ized more and more “the benefit of
being your son.” He recognized his
father “as in a certain real sense
the author of all I have to be grate
ful for. I bless God for my noble,
strong and saintly mother and for
my incomparable father."
Mr. Madigan terms the letters the
most personally revealing docu
ments he has ever seen by the late
president, who seldom expressed
himself so emotionally in writing—
at least not in letters which have
come into the autograph market.
These were obtained from a friend
of the Wilson family and are en
tirely in Mr. Wilson’s autograph.
Tells Of Need For His Father.
That Woodrow Wilson considered
his mind “a poor thing" and that it
could not give him “gratification,”
he disclosed in one of the letters, j
•I have to rely on my heart as the
sole source of contentment and hap-;
piness. and that craves, oh. so
fiercely, the companionship of those
I love." the future president wrote.
The older he grew the more he
needed Ids father, he said.
The first of the letters was writ
ten in 1888. when Woodrow Wilson
was in his thirty-third year. The
others were written during the next
two years. At the time he was Pro
fessor of History! and Political
Economy at Wesleyan University. It
was here that he completed "The
State,” an analysis of various na
tional governments. It was in 1890
that he was called to Princeton as
professor of Jurisprudence and Po

Problem Of Choosing
The Life For Students
Some Ten Thousand Gainful Oc
cupations f rom Which to
Choose .hummer Jobs.
"Special to The Star.i
' Wake Forest. May 15.—Speaking
this morning to 700 Wake Forest
college students on “Choosing a
Lite's Work." flrvfl John Allen Fin
ley, college chaplain, gave his answer
to a question which has perplexed
mortals since the world began.
"The problem of choosing one s
life work,” he stated, ”ls one of the
most serious which a college student
faces, It has been said that 65 pc
cent of college students have not
settled this question
“The matter needs to be faced de
liberately by e\edy college student
No one need expect to drift Into his
proper plucc In the world. On the
basis of numerous surveys which
hate been made one is safe in say
ing that from onehalf to three
fourths of ti e people in gainful oc
cupations are misfits.
“Roger Babson says: ‘Statistics
show that 80 per cent of our young
people get their positions in June or
July, directly after the close of
school or college .... When it
is considered that most boys and
girls talte the first eood position
that is offered to them, irreapac
tlve of the firm or character of the
work, it is not surprising that there
are so many failures in life.'
"With possibly some 10000 gainful
occupations to choose from, every
man ought to find a Job to which
he Is suited. ‘Each man,' wrote
Emerson, 'has hfs own vocation. The
talent is the call; There is onp direc
tion hi which all space is open to
him. He has faculties silently Invit
ing him thither to endless exertion.
He Is like a ship in a river; he runs
against obstructions on every side
but one; on that side all obstruction
Is taken away* and he sweeps serer
ly over a deepening channel into an
"One should hear the call of his
natural bent, the thing he likes to
do and can do well. But it Is pos
sible for a mans interpretation of
his own aptitudes to mislead him.
Of Goethe his biographer says, 'Till
near his fortieth year lie could not
shake off the Illusion that nature
had given him equally the gifts of
the painter and the poet. Many
hours of the best years of his life
were to be spent In laboriously prac -
tielng on art in which he was doom
ed to mcdiocrjty.’
