Jonah, reminds one optimistic punster, was more down

A number of North Carolina newspaper have recently

DEMOCRATS ALWAYS WRONG
BY WAY OF The Raleigh News and Observer we learn how
The New York World-Telegram sums up the remedy of
Hoover and his party for the depression. It is this:
“Keep taxes from depressing the rich.
“Rely on "Uncle Andy” and the U. S. Treasury.
“Put your faith in bond issues.
"I/et posterity pay.
“Remember Democrats are always wrong.
That, in a nutshell, is old guard Republican philosophy
for a national and international crisis!
“Superb, far-seeing statesmanship for the world’s worst
TOMORROW THE DAY!
FAIR WEEK IS UPON US! An annuahevent that has al
ready become an institution to the people of Cleveland
and surrounding counties is at hand.
AA ith the day of the old time street-parade circus gone
and other anticipated eyents of the year changed by time,
the Cleveland County Fair has come to be an exposition that
is eagerly looked forward to by thousands and thousands of
people. The fair officials made a wise move in cutting the
admission price in half—down to 25 cents—and with the
amusements booked for the five days and nights it is a sure
bet that hundreds will this week forget whatever they may
have to worry about.
STATE PROUD OF STEVENS
ALL NORTH CAROLINA rejoices with the little Eastern
Carolina town of Warsaw over the distinction that has
come to one of the town’s admirable young citizens, Henry
L. Stevens, new national commander of the American Le
gion. It is an honor, indeed, for a North Carolina boy to be
s,o honored. Ex-service men and Legion members of this
section were strong supporters of Stevens and were natural
ly elated over his election. Quite a number of veterans here
abouts became acquainted while in the service with the
University senior who became an officer in the 81st Divis
ion, and still others have come in touch with him in Legion
affairs. All are confident that the Legion hosts could not
have found a more capable leader.
SHELBY IS A FOOTBALL TOWN and the town and coun
ty have contributed many players to the college elevens
of the State in bygone years and have boys on practically
all the squads now. Yet Shelby’s geographical location has
made it hard upon football fans because the big games are
usually played at points a considerable distance away. Next
Saturday, however, the fans of this section will get a break;
Wake Forest and Furman play at Gastonia. The proximity
of the game will mean much in this county which is filled
with old Wake men and which has a large number of boys
there now. No local boy is on the Wake varsity this year,
although several will likely be on the Deacon outfit next
year. But, anyway, it is safe to say that Shelby and Cleve
land county will be well represented in the stands at Gas
tonia Saturday. Both Baptist colleges have strong elevens
this year and it should be one of the best big games played
near Shelby in years. A boost in attendance from this end
will help bring other good games to the neighboring city.
FARMER MUST HELP HIMSELF
CLEVELAND COUNTY farmers, in opposing a special ses
sion of legislature about cotton curtailment, appear to
have voiced what the foresighted farmer has known for
years, and that is nothing other than that the fanner has
about realized that he need not expect any help from an out
side source. It would be mighty fine, all will admit, if a
special session could be called and that special session could
in some magic and mysterious manner boost the price of
cotton up around 15 or 20 cents, But the farmer is dubious,
and he should be for certainly he has been tricked often
The farmer who uses common sense and remembers the
broken promises of the past knows that a special session
might not result in anything more than a lot of talk and an
expense account of 50 or 75 thousand dollars. Every cam
paign year for many years the farmer has been told, by this
and that candidate, that he will be helped. Very few of
those promises have been fulfilled. Fooled so many times,
the thinking farmer has no reason to believe a gathering of
the legislature now could bring him quick relief.
The fact it that the farmer ui the plight he is no: has
little more to depend upon than in the past, and that de
Ipendence is himself. The farmer’s problem, as live-at-home
advocates at the recent cotton meeting here said, is one for
him to work out. And, as ono farmer present v ho didn't
owe a dollar said, that way out is to grow enough food and
| feed for his own consumption and then take a chance on a
cash crop. The live-at-home farmer is in better shape to
day than any man living. Those farmers who this year
i 'vent in for food and feed crops as never before will at least
inot go hungry.
The decision, made necessary by conditions, to live at
home will do more for the farmer than all legislative ses
sions and all willy-nilly plans advanced by office-seekers who
hope thereby to gain temporary fame and popularity.
i IT IS INTERESTING, says The Charlotte Observer, to note
an unemployment condition in Charlotte. The employ
ment offices are thronged each day with idle men seeking
|work, yet they laugh. The Observer informs, at the oppor
! tunity of going out on the Mecklenburg farms and picking
'cotton at. 35 cents per hundred pounds. Seemingly, The Ob
server believes, “they prefer, as the easier job, begging on
the streets or securing food from the charitable agencies.”
Picking cotton, we admit, at 35 cents per hundred, as the
pickers are said to be offered in Mecklenburg, is no way to
get rich, but it is about all the farmer can afford, if not
more. The idle might make little more than a living out of
it. but certainly the taking of the job would indicate a de
sire to earn a bare living rather than stand on the corner
and ask for handouts.
rl e Observer is inclined to wonder if the Arkansas
plan,, giving the choice of jail or the cotton field, would not
have a wholesome effect.
HOW MUCH DO NEWSPAPER headlines influence " the
minds of the reading public?
The repetition of this muchly debated query is made by
The Star because of the contradicting headlines placed last
week upon the same news story by several North Carolina
All over the State mass meetings were held to determine
|whether ootton farmers desired a special session of legisla
I The Greensboro News headed the story in this man
ner: “LACK OF ENTHUSIASM SHOWN BY FARMERS
j FOR COTTON SESSION.”
The Charlotte Observer used this heading: "ENTHUS
j I ASM FOR EXTRA SESSION SEEMS LACKING.”
The Raleigh News and Observer headline writer put it
this way: "FARM MEETINGS, GENERALLY. URGE SPE
CIAL SESSION ”
Now, what do you know about that ? If headline writ
ers can make such varying interpretations of one news story,
no wonder certain statements in the Bible are differently
construed. Of course, some naughty person may hint that
two of the papers did not desire a special session and the
