FRIDAY, OCT. 2, 1931
After today—one more big day and night of the fair,
perhaps the biggest of all!
H isn’t such a cheerful thing to talk about, but after
this week the names of delinquent 1930 taxpayers are to be
A Washington dispatch informs that' Hoover has de
fied “Rig Navy Men,” and the office boy asks if it isn't the
first time he has defied any of the Big Interests.
Add to the similes of the season : As unusual as a col
lege football star failing to pass his second-chance examina
“Borah.” informs a headline, “Says Silver Is Key To
Prosperity.” You're right, senator; absolutely right.
Enough silver in everybody’s pocket should be the key to
turn the trick.
Governor Gardner says there are three classes it doesn't
pay to get* in an argument with—women, preachers and
newspapers. We wonder if North Carolina’s First Lady no
ticed that he placed women first in the list?
All the talk about commercialized athletics in college
results from the fact that a great many old grads would
rather see their alma mater win on the gridiron than turn
thumbs down on the fleet halfback who asks a little help.
SHOWING THEIR GLASS
CONGRATULATIONS ARE in order to the teachers and
pupils of the Polkvilie school for the winning of first
honors in the school booth contest at the county fair. As
the veteran scribe and teacher. “Corn Cracker,” has said
heretofore, they “just have a habit of doing things up right
about Polkvilie." Fallston and Waco are also due praise for
their exceptional booths. It was the first time ever that all
the schools had booths and such enterprise can but redound
to the interests of school activities generally in the county.
Mention should be given also to the successful handling
ol the first county-wide track meet. Kings Mountain and
Mooresboro boys ran away with the honors, but all the com-!
peting teams presented athletes of ability. By anotherj
year the track meet at the fair will be one of the outstand-i
ing events. Seeing their star sprinters and jumpers in action!
is just as thrilling to thousands of Cleveland youngsters as
is a big football game to the college students.
THE FUTURE of the poultry industry in Cleveland county
gets brighter and brighter. This year near 1,500
thickens were entered in the poultry department of the j
county fair. But that’s not the main point; the quality of
the birds entered was far better than ever before. So de
clared Rev. J. W. Suttie, veteran poultryman, and manager
of the poultry show. Several years ago a number of Cleve
land county farmers began to go at the poultry business in
a serious, business-like manner. Theretofore the majority
of the chicken flocks in the county were haphazard affairs,
just enough chickens, with quality overlooked' for a few!
friers at the right time of year, enough eggs to cat and a
few to sell now and then. Today any number of Cleveland
county farmers consider their- poultry flock their most de
pendable cash crop. The improved quality of the birds at
the fair this year reveals the trend to better poultry, and re
cent sales, by the county poultry association, of pedigreed
cockerels indicates that an even better quality of poultry and
better yields are ahead.
And, isn’t there just as much wisdom in securing good
birds for the poultry flock as in getting the best seed for
the cotton crop?
SCHOOL MAN TALKS SENSE
WHEN J. H. GENTRY, superintendent of schools in Iredell
county, told the Statesville Rotary club that the State
support of schools should be given a fair trial before being
accorded criticism he, says The Statesville Daily, “exhibited
a spirit wor^iy of commendation and emulations." Correct.
In quoting Mr. Gentry and commenting upon his re
marks, the Statesville editor said:
Mr. Gentry put his finger on the basic cause of all
criticism of State school operation when he said that
the general idea had been that the State would furnish
the money for the schools and leave the spending to lo
cal management. Instead, the State is saying, as was
to be expected, where the money is to be spent and how
much. There will be some embarrassments, some, dis
satisfaction because of changes that many be object
ionable to localities, which the county school board will
be unable to remedy because the final word is with the
State. It is well in this connection to consider the a!
tentative. If we would absolutely control the schools
can return to the system of local taxation for their
aupport. The idea that the State will collect the money
lor the school and leave it to the unsupervised spending
of local officials, directed by county policy which may
be more considerate of community opinion, is out of the
Declaring that he was willing to undergo a good
deal of supervision and endure many restrictinos if the
new arrangement will help us out of our present finan
cial difficulties, Mr. Gentry is setting an example for
all interested in the schools.
Remember also when we talk about the iState doing
this and that, that the State isn’t the governor or the
State superintendent or any State official. The opera
tion of the schools is the result of legislative action.
The le-gislature made the laws under which the schools
nre operated and cut the allowance for schools, which
enforces the economy.
Isn't the view expressed by Prof. Gentry and con
curred in by The Daily, the jujst way in which to size up
the situation. We desired State support of schools and ask
ed for it. We also sought lower school taxes. The State is
attempting to give us what we asked for. but it stands to
reason that we cannot have more economy, and as a result,
lower taxes without less expenditure. It is an old, old say
ing that one cannot have his cake and eat it. We cannot
cut down expenses without curtailing the spending. The
last legislature was told and told again that the school tax
burden was too heavy. A cut has been made, or is being
made. Certainly, we should not yell this early in the game
because we have no cake to eat when we howled just a short
time ago, and will howl again, that we could not afford to
® SO, STYLE DID IT ALL?
WHY ARE TIMES so hard? Why is it that the cotton
farmer hardly gets enough for his cotton to pay for
the picking and the wheat and grain farmer does not get
enough to pay for the threshing?
Can it be that Style caused it all? Is it possible that
the decree of fashion had much to do with starting the de
pression? Anyway that’s the slant taken by a well known
home economic expert.
The rage among women for slender figures sent grain
prices tumbling, she says and explains with this statement:
"When women started reducing their first move was to
cut down on cereals.’’ That decreased the consumption of
gain. As a result, too, she points out many girls have starv
ed themselves into hospitals and infirmaries with the hope
of getting thin. And cotton flopped, according to similar
advice offered by another expert, because Style decreed that
milady should no longer wear cotton stockings and petti
coats. At fall football games, it is pointed out, may be seen
the young women, all dolled up in silk, shivvering and teeth
a’clmtering because they do not have on enough clothes and
have not eaten enough to withstand the weather.
That being the case, if it be the case—Let’s have the
style creators ordain that a girl—and the term girl covers
all those who would be girls—isn’t fashionable, not a bit of
it! unless she is plump, even fat, and rosy-cheeked and all
bundled up in clothing, mostly cotton clothing.
CAREFUL, MR. DANIELS
JOSEPHUS DANIELS, the Raleigh editor, can be depended
upon to uphold the principles of prohibition at any time
anyone desires to start a wet-dry jodsting tilt. That must
be admitted no matter how often or how vehemently you may
differ with him on other topics—or even on that topic. At
the same time he can be counted upon to express his mind
about high leaders in the church taking too much time from
religious matters to mingle in political discussions. But down
at Warsaw this week we fear Mr. Daniels unintentionally
came very hear getting himself in a position where he could
The occasion was that of the welcoming home by War
saw of their home-town boy, Henry Stevens, who went away
to the Legion convention and made good by being elected
commander of all the World War veterans in America. Mr.
Daniels was one of the speakers in the “welcome home" par
ty. Among other things he is quoted in his own newspaper
as saying was the following: “The Legion is the greatest
organization in the-world." We’re not questioning that
statement, and very few will because the Legion is certainly
made up of a mighty fine group of young men. But this
same Legion convention, remember, voted for a referendum
on prohibition at the same time it voted Henry Stevens in
office. Some dry reformers who may not be fond of Mr.
Daniels and not really as dry, for that matter, may take
that opportunity of claiming Mr. Daniels is wet because he
considers the Legion such a great organization.
