    Nobody’s
Business
By GEE McGEE
let me see voir tongie
. . .We let our town get badiy In
debt during the post few- years and
tiiere wasn’t anything for us to di
except to Vote a few hundred thous
and dollars worth of bonds so’s
they could pay off all their obli
gations, regain their credit, and
thus be properly equipped to "get
bark In debt again. The reason
we got Into the hole was. . .trying
to keep up with the Joases. . ever
since 19 and 20.
. . .1 didn’t know that it was so
much trouble to get fixed up to
vote till I tried It on a recent occa
sion. Our laws of registration are
very strict and intensely personal.
I had to show the “registra-tor ’
tny last year's city and county tax
receipt, then I had to show him
my birth-mark and my Federal
voting certificate and then I had
marriage certificate and my watch
. . .Well, after displaying all my
credentials. . which were mighty
hard to accumulate, the man In
charge of the books swore me, and
speaking of oaths—that was one
that had been handed down by a
tong line of swearers. I held vp
both hands while tt was being ad
ministered, and when I got thru,
I had sworn that I had never been
convicted of receiving stolen goods,
beating my wife, cheating at cards,
staying out late, bigamy, fighting
duels, sleeping on my tummy, and
several other terrible things <J
am glad that I don't have to swear
that I had never done any of these
things, but that word "convicted"
saved me.)
. . ,T want that oath changed to
cad as follows; “in consideration
of being granted the right and
privilege to vote, I do solemnly
swear that I will never cast my
sallot for a crook or a grafter or
a bone-head, or a liquor-licad or
i coat-tail swinger or a dirty poli
tician. , .or any other man or
animal that Is calculated to injure
the public or sell hts vote or dis
grace our party, so help me.”
. .But politics are eicanfr than
they were 10 or 10 years ago, In our
hate especially. \ I can recall that
the man who hatl the biggest mouth
and the most brass and the least
sense and the most llker, and
demagogues then running for some
bigger of floe. . .always got elected

I We have been considering brains
i and honesty quite seriously lor the
I past few years, and thc»e quallfl
! cations are going to be given more
serious consideration from now or,
j I urn going to try to pick out candi
dates for future offices who believe
j that the only way to reduce taxes
{is to reduce expenses, and vote for
them twice, if possible.
THK EVENING AFTER
. . Well, it's all over at last. My
; wife's kinfolks have gone homp, and
they wont want any more turkey
for another year. Two of them hart
to have a doctor before night. 8 of
them took soda water every 30
minutes for 2 hours, and the bal
! ancc of them just slept and groan
ed. I made a mistake: I bought
only 3 turkeys. <N. B. In order
not to have any misunderstanding
about this matter, some of my kin
folks were also among those
present.!
. . .This Is the first Christmas wc
ever had that did not leave ur
enough turkey for turkey hash for
3 whole days and nights. Why, dear
even the bones are missing. The
cranberry Jelly is gone: and the
dressing disappeared as if by magic.
But we had a mighty good time
After dinner. . .a thank-offering
was taken for the unemployed, but
only 2 or 3 gave anything; the
others claimed that they were un
employed. , .and they would keep
what little they had for themselves
They told the truth—some of them,
have never worked much.
. .1 have carefully checked up my
list of presents. The necktlo that
Jim sent me is Just like the one
I got from Sam, and while I
wouldn't swear it, as I don’t swear,
both of them look exactly like the
neckties I sent to Jim and Sant
last Christmas, a year ago. Only
one of them appears to have been
worn but very little, I like tht
electric toaster all right. . .that my
wife gave me. It costs 14.50: I
saw the cancelled check In my re
turned vouchers yesterday. . with
my name signed to it "Per Her."
. . .If you want to stop folks send
ing you Christmas presents, why, all
you've got to do is. . stop sending
them any. You certainly wont he
bothered If you don't bother them,
j The 10-cent stores have made giv
! In* presents a real pleasure. My
[Wife bought 9 nice presents for my
kinfolks for only 80 rents: she paid
a little more for those she sent to
her kinfolks. Beads is the thing to
send your best friends. The way
I handle my beads business is. . .1
buy ’em at the 10-cent store and
then let all my friends catch me
looking at beads in the nicest jew
elry store*. Tile only difference be
tween beads Is the price, . .and
some times the size.
. . .Our kids have already rulnt all
their toys. Tine mechanical toys
wont do a single stunt, the paint 1*
off the others, the dolls arc ;av
dust-less, the candy has been walk
ed on, the bicycle is punctured. Urn
wrist watch wont run and all the
others have been swapped to the

Far-Sighted Legislation Meant
Much To North Carolina States
Magazine Article By Governor
'North Carolina is not afraid h,:
stand by itself,” says Governor
Gardner in his article, in the1
January 2 Saturday Evening Post
In which he tells first of the tre
mendous prfigres.; made by tln
state after the war, and second ni
the intelligent retrenchment poli
cies taken since the entire country
was faced with the need for more
careful control of public moneys.
Reduction In taxation is a fea
ture of North Carolina's program
that interests almost all other
rtfttes, many of which arc staggering
under heavy burdens. Governor
Gardner says with reference t>
road taxes: "The position of tie
Administration was that road
should be supported by those who
use them, and that the overwhelm
ing majority of country people were
not getting n fair return from the
proceeds of the gasoline tax. A",
owners of gasoline vehicles paid
this tax-, but the tax was used al
most exclusively for the support of
the state highway system. . .con
necting the principal towns. The
60 per cent of the country people
living off the .tale highways paid
their gasoline tax and then for
most of their travel used only their
neighborhood reads—maintained by
property taxes. . .The most advanc
ed legislation was embraced in the,
administration bill for the state te
take over the country roads.”
The Local Act.
Government by the people them
selves instead of arbitrary govern
ment by a mail board was the
object of the Local Government
Act. Governor Gardner says that
this Act “increased the confidence
of the holders of North Carolina
securities, stabalized the credit of
North Carolina counties and town
and gave a new meaning to the
phrase "local self-government.-'
The plan for consolidation if
state schools, and also the pub hr
school legislation are discussed'
“This legislation brought about the
largest decrease in the cost of
government and the greatest re
duction id taxes on property."
Tax Reduction.
‘■•It was repeatedly charged that
if taxes were reduced the reduction
would not reach the taxpayer bach
home. The answer is taxes on
property were reduced—positive!;
reduced—and the reduction is being
felt this year in the pocket book of
•he taxpayer back home/'
Stands Alone
“Tlte two branches of the public
service that arc essentially stat"
functions and that represent be
tween 60 and 10 per cent of the
total cost of government—namely,
schools and roads—are cupported
and operated by the S;ate. In this
reaper* North Carolina stands
alone."

Dr. Copeland Urges l*rolection
of Children from “Catch
! *ng“ Diseases Whenever
Possible.
By H. S. COPELAND, M. D.
U. S. Senator from New York.
Fanner Commissioner of health,
Sew York Ci/j,'
NOT long ngo an important
Child Health Conference
w*3 held in Washington. At
that time the daily newspapers re
ported the debates and finally the
cumeiu s 1 o it s
of the confer
ence. Recently
little has been
reported con-;
eerninjr the re-.
suits ,of this,
import ant
Rather ing.
Nevcrthe leas,
the vork is be
ing carried on,
even though
the formal ses
sions ended
some time since.
The Confer
Dr. Copeland
ence expiessed ihc views that al
though education is important, the
health of our children must be
considered first. It has been esti
mated that nearly three hundred
thousand ease* ot communicable dis
eases are reported annually In the
United States. Halt of this number
occur in children. This makes it
important that the school cooperate
with the health authorities anil that
greater public effort be made for
better child health.
These authorities insist that all
children be vaccinated for smallpox
and bn immunized against diphtheria
and scarlet fever. It is important
that this be done before the child la
admitted to school.
Although typhoid fever cases are
•till reported, it rarely appears
among school children. Typhoid i»
not easily transmitted from one child
to another. If that disease should
become prevalent, vaccines may be
easily administered. But as regards
smallpox, diphtheria and scarlet
fever, the danger is greater because
these diseases are readily transmitted.
This danger is a problem ot the
school, for in the schoolroom Ilea
the danger of transmitting the dis
eases. It is Important that the
school-child tie vaccinated before en
tering school. When vaccinated
against smallpox, as well as receiv
ing the inocculaticm against dipth
theria, he la assured of reasonable
safety from these diseases.
1 Tike" the Precaution* |
Although at one time It Was hoped
Immunity to starlet fever could be
*lven. the method has not been h*
successful as desired. At anv rate.
It can b.; said that a child who re
ceives inoculations against scarlet
fever Is not harmed, and In many
cases may be markedly benefited,
in actual cases of scarlet fever the
advantages and benefit* of the ad
ministration of scarlet fever anti
toxin are well worth while.
I mention these facts because
there are many children attending
school who have not received small
pox vaccination. In addition, there
are many who should be subjected
to the "Schick test" and "Dick test."
The Schick test determines whether
or hot a child is susceptible to diph
theria and the Dick test doee the
came for scarlet fever.
I’lease remember that the health
of your child is worth any price. By
his being Wealthy he will be able to
attend school without any loss of
time. Also he will not be exposed to
the many dangers that exl*: In school
life.
i If you have not already taken
these necessary precaution a why not
■peak to your board of health offi

But Why Impose On
Generations Unborn
To Give Others Aid
An Ai/gle Of The Foreign War
Debt Program That Should
t'arsc Some Thought.
Raleigh News and Observer.
Charles E. Mitchell, president of
the National City Bank, whose
bank made millions by loaning Am^
erican money in Germany, told a
senate committee that if Germany
was made to pay the reparation
debt it promised to pay, “it will
bring rebellion,” and added:
‘ Here we have in Germany to
day young men going into the uni
versities of Germany who were not!
born when the great war started.!
Those young men see that not only
they, but their progeny, and the
progeny of their progeny must pay
and go on for these generations in
paying a debt for which they, as
individuals, were not responsible.”
Somebody must pay. Mr. Mitch
ell's argument that if the progeny
of Germans is made to pay “it will
bring rebellion” was thus answered
by Senator Reed, of Pennsylvania.
The Senator said:
“You see that there is growing up
in Germany a psychology on the
paft of the younger people which
leads them to want to accept all of
the benefits created by preceding
generations, without any of the ob
ligations. That Is understandable.
Young people enjoy getting bene
fits and do not enjoy bearing bur
dens.
"But is it not reasonable to think
that the same psychology will grow
up over here that very large war
debts were created, and that this
money is going to be paid by a gen
eration of Americans that had
nothing to do with this war?
“Now why should the progeny of
Americans who had nothing to do
With the war. progeny of Americans
who were not even alive, pay this
war debt, and the progeny of the
people Who started it go scot free. I
confess I cannot see that Mr.

What answer did Banker Mitch
ell make? He was "flabbergasted”
and said: "I grant with you that
that is quite unanswerable as an
argument.”
If there had not been millions of
velvet In German loans to bank
ers,—(none of the loans have
brought losses to bankers, ag they
testified)—these big loans would not
have been made. One of the actuat
ing influences for reduction to the
point "of capacity to pay” proposed
by Mr. Mellon is that If Uncle Sam
will accept reduction the interna

more certainly collect what is due
on their loans.
