with It. X raised the hood and look

_Two or three school teachers

Ford down a hill and I rolled up
to a down-town garage before any

the matter, and I told him I didn't

which he recognized, as she had
been there before.

my work seemed to be a bright
young fellow and had a screw

and said—"I believe your humpty

Then I asked him what it would
cost to get the car to run long
enough to get back home. He said:

Wheat Had Its Ups
Downs Since 1900
FIuctuation<i Of Wheat Have Been
Erratic For The Fast Thirty
Interesting facts on the fluctuat
ing price for wheat since 1900 are
contained in a clipping from the
Franklin Favorite, Franklin, Ky„
Wheat is selling for about 50
cents a bushel at present. Last
year the grain brought 85 cents,
and In 1929 the price paid was 98
cents, or nearly twice as much as
the farmers are now getting for
this crop.
The highest price paid for wheat
in the last 31 years, according to
the article, was In 1919, when it
brought $2.20 a bushel, or nearly
five times as much as the growers
are getting for the grain which
produces the "'staff of life.”
These figures which were tabulat
ed by the Chicago wheat market,
show graphically how wheat farm
ers sometimes ride on the crest of
prosperity, and at other times are
financially drowned by the back
wash of depression.
In 1900 wheat brought 61 1-2
cents a bushel, a fair price for the
time. Prices of the grain rose
steadily for four years, reaching
81 1-4,cents In 1904, when the price
tumbled to 78 cents in -1905 In
1907 it was 71 cents, but better
ttanes in 1908 sent the price to 84
1-2 cents. From then on It climbed
steadily, with few fluctuations, un
til 1919. when the high mark of
$2.30 was reached.
After 1919 the prices paid for
wheat steadily declined to 192S.
when a bushel brough 96 1-3 cents.
From that year prices:, went up
again to $1.35 1-2 in 1925, and from
then there has been a decline down
to the 50 cents that the grower®
are eettlne now

The striving after speed and more speed that is a feature of our modern world has received added impetus
by the recent feat of Lieutenant G. II. Stalnforth, member of the British Schneider Cup team, who attained a
speed of 388 miles an hour following the contest for that trophy. Such a speed, if maintained, would make n
trans continental flight in 6 1-2 hours possible, as against the present record of Major James Doolittle of 11
hours 18 minutes. But such experts as Major Doolittle and Captain Frank Hawks refuse to accept the new
record as the ultimate In airplane speed. Major Doolittle asserts that there is no limit to the velocity that
may be obtained In the air, and Captain Hawks confidently predicts that in a few years 500 miles an houi

South To Diversify
Products Of Farm
Spartanburg Herald.
As has been mentioned in these
columris on numerous occasions, the
deep-cotton-growing south, at last
aware of the utter futility of onc
crops farmings, turns tp diversifi
cation, the building of a self-sus
taining agricultural system.
Of vital importance in such an
agricultural program is the produc
tion of food for man and beast. The
south has also learned this. Proof
may be found in the wholesale
turning to grain, a factor so essen
tial to agricultural prosperity no
farmer can pass over it.
Says Prosperous Planter David
R. Coker of Hartsville, in this state,
an outstanding agricultural figure
of the nation: "Grain is rapidly
becoming more important and nec
essary in the agriculture of the
south," Writing in The Progressive
Farmer, Mr. Coker, “premier plant
breeder of the South," list five
proofs of the wholesale switch to
The returns from so-called 'mon
ey crops' have become too small to
warrant the purchase of any food
for the farm family or feed for live
“Varieties have been recently in
troduced which make much greater
production and which (In the case
of oats particular) are much more
cold-resistant and therefore more
resistant to winter-filling.
“Grains, either alone or with
vetch, occupy the land in winter
prevent leaching and erosion, and
can be followed by soybeans or cow
peas, thus producing two splendid
crops of feed and forage on the
same land In one year.
“Southern farm economy requires
the rapid increase and maintenance
of more livestock on every farm.
“Home-grown grain and legume
hay are indispensable to economic
animal husbandry."
Such Is the picture of an agri
cultural south that tftrns to the
production of grain, painted by a
planter and seed-breeder who has
watched her progress year after

Take brotherhood at its best
Brotherhood is a family in which
there are several sons. Each has his

Newton Baker Is |
State Favorite !
For Democrats
Is Wet But More Pleasing To Some i
leaders Than Is Franklin
Writing on the ^subject of Tar
heel presidential possibilities, Le
gette Blythe of the Charlotte Ot- [
server staff opines that the ideal j
candidate for the North Carolina;
democracy would be a dry whej
could win. That the second bet
would be a wet who could win the |
office without losing the state. Com
menting further he says:
"Just now the democracy of this
state, like the democracy every
j where, confidently feels that 1932
I will present the best opportunity
! since Wilson’s day to elect a Dem
locratic president. And it wishes
| very, very much to see this come
j to pass.
I “What, of it of course really wants,
above all other things, is to see both
the nation and state under Demo
cratic -rule. But it wants first to
keep the state there—and as be
tween carrying the nation and car
rying the state its first choice
; would be the state.
"The party leadership of North
Carolina would regard no man as a
good presidential candidate who
whatever else he might win, should
lose the state.
“That situation, on doubt, ac
counts for the very marked en
thusiasm aroused in North Caro
lina political circles by the recent
ascendency of Newton D. Baker aj
a candidate for the Democratic
nomination for president. *
"It is perfectly safe to predict
that if Mr. Baker's boom continue?,
to rise as it has during the last
few weeks dominent sentiment]
[ within the party in this state will
| make him North Carolina's first
; choice long before the national con
Mr. Baker, is an avowed wit, t
be sure. But the North Carolina
democracy lias no more idea o’
finding its “ideal candidate''—a
Democrat Dry who can win—than
it ha; of beating Cam Morrison for
the renate. Party leaders recognize
that; frankly, openly admit it. They
regard it as inevitable that the
party in its national convention
shall nominate a wet—that is sonr
|man who is against the Volstead
■ law *s it now exists.
| “And so, since a wet it apparent 1;
must be—they want to tee that wet
! nominated who stands the best
| chance of winning the presidency
j and wrho can, at the same time
'carry the state by the same sort of
| majority that Democratic presiden
tial candidates used to get back in
the days before A1 Smith,
Mr. Wilson’s secretary of war i
regarded as a safe bet on this
score. He may be a wet. but he has
not been so terribly ramnant about
it; he has not paramounted it, and
his place in the political sun is not
because of it, He is far separated
from Tammany and he has a south
