New Bern, Oct. 2—One of three Rendedvous Mountain memorials to be erected by the North Carolina Daughters of the American Revolu tion, as presented by Mrs. Sydney Perry Cooper, of Henderson, State regent, will be unveiled on Saturday morning, October 14, on the Boone Trail Highway near North Wilkes boro. Gov. J. C. B. Ehringhaus will be the chief speaker for the occasion; and Mrs. Russell William Magna, pre sident general, N. S. D. A. R., will be represented on the program. Mrs. H. O. Steele, of Statesville, State chairman of the Rendezvous Moun tain memorial, will preside, and will present thei tablets. Mrs. Cooper will accept them in behalf of the State organization. Greetings will be extended by Miss Lucy L. Finley, of North Wilkesboro, daughter of Judge T. B. Finley, who will give a history of the important mountainsiteand again make a pre sentationof the place to the State as a park. The exercises will be started at 11 a.m. The D. A.

R. chap ter, of North Wilkesboro, is chairman of the hospitality committee. Three tablets are planned for the section, in commemoration of the part that Rendezvous Mountain and its re sidents played in the American Rev olution, as suggested in 1926 by Judge Finley. The other two memorials will be placed later: one on the Jefferson highway when it has been completed and the other on the mountain top when the State has finished its prom ised road there. BOARD EDUCATION AD JUSTS TRANSPORTATION Teachers Get First Month’s Pay Promptly. The Board of Education met Mon day in regular session for the trans action of routine business. In the mat ter of transportation, which has re ceived considerable attention for the last two or three weeks, an agree ment was reached which appears to be quite satisfactory to all parties interested in transportation. All of the truck routes, which have been es tablished, except the one to Cherry Lane, will be continued in effect with only a slight change in the bus sche dules. At Cherry Lane the State School Commission allotted a teacher so that it will not be necessary to provide transportation. It becomes necessary for the Roar ing Gap bus to make a second trip after coming in to Sparta from Roar ing Gap. The Board of Education re gretted this exceedingly, but there seemed to be no further arrangement that could be made at the time. All of the schools completed the first month on September 29, and vouchers have been issued and were deposited in the Bank of Sparta to the credit of the teachers Monday. It is very gratifying to school officiate to be able to pay promptly at the end of the first month, and thanks are due the State School Commission for providing the funds with which to pay. It is hoped that complete figures forenrollm ent and attendance In the county schools will be available for publication next week. Marriage W.R.

DOUGHTON MAKES TALK TO SCHOOL PUPILS Tells Students To Prepare for Responsibilities of Life. Tuesday morning the students of Sparta High School had the good fortune to have Gov. R. A. Dough ton to bring them an inspiring message during the chapel period. Rev. C. W. Russell offered the invocation, after which Gov. Doughton spoke on the parable of the Good Samaritan. With well chosen words he told the old story from a new point of view, point ing out how the youth left a good home in the prosperous city of Jeru salem and went down the rocky road to the wicked city of Jericho, where he fell among thieves and was robbed and beaten. “Many a young person today starts down the wrong road, the road to Jericho,” stated Gov. Doughton. “We have a great country and great in stitutions. To be an American citizen is a great blessing. Students have great opportunities. The old virtues of honesty, integrity, and right living are mile posts on the road to good citizenship. Beware of the road to Jericho. “We have been on the road to Jeri cho financially. As a nation, as a state, as citizens we have been too extravagant. We have spent beyond our incomes.Extravagance is the road to Jericho.” Gov. Doughton mentioned the fact that some people were pessimistic about the youth of the land, but he stated that he had faith in the future. But youth must prepare to meet the tests of life, prepare to take on the responsibility of preserving this great country of ours and making it better And in conclusion he admonished youth “not to be afraid to do the manly thing. Don’t be afraid to do right.” A number of patrons attended the chapel exercises, and all seemed to enjoy the message brought by Gov. Doughton. Preparations Proceed For State Fair Oct. 9-14 Preparations continue for the North Carolina State Fair, to be held in Raleigh, October 9-14. Everybody in North Carolina is in vited to attend. Norman Y. Cham bliss, the secretary-manager, and his able corps of associates, are continu ing their preliminary work and re port progress. The exhibits this year will be up to the highest standard; the amuse ments will be clean, wholesome, and entertaining. There will be special rates to Raleigh and, with the spirit of optimism now prevailing, there should be thousands in attendance each day the fair is in progress. AMONG THE SICK Mr. Aaros Taylor, of Furches, was seriously injured in the head and shoulder last week in an encounter with a bull. He seems to be getting along all right now. Mrs. Albert Irwin sustained two broken ribs and injuries to her back when she fell off the back porch last week. A board on the porch gave way and tripped her. Mrs. Frank Wagoner, of Whitehead is seriously ill from lockjaw, which developed from a burn on her foot. Mr. Oscar Fortner, of Baywood, who has been ill for some time with typhoid fever, is improving. RELIEF WORK PROJECTS TO BE DISCONTINUED Workers To Help Gather Crops In County. TO ALL RELIEF FAMILIES IN ALLEGHANY COUNTY: It is now time of year to be taking care of crops. So, after this week, all work projects wil be discontinued. Every family is requested to take care of their crops and to be making plans for the winter. There are many farmers who wil have employment gathering crops. All families that are on the relief who are able to work must see the farmers and seek employment where it is possible and when you are not busy taking care of your own crops. It seems as if some of our relief cases, we are glad to say, are trying to go ahead and provide for them selves, whye others seem to just be depending upon relief alone. This re lief is not going to last always, and we are just giving you fair warning that you are going to have to make up your mind, and look to some other source. When our next work project starts up, it will be on an altogether different scale; and some of the peo ple who are on the relief who depend solely on the relief to kep them up are going to get fooled. I hope the people realize that the Relief funds are not permanent sup port, but only a temporary help which we hope and expect to get those who have any get-up back to a self-sup- J porting position. We feel that we have cooperated in every way by furnish ing seed, fertiliers, work, and food, also clothing, that by now, with a good season, we are going to be able to take a large number off of our list. One thing, in particular, we have tried to furnish people with regular work to buy school books, also cloth ing and shoes. Therefore, this is giv ing all the relief families fair warn ing that you must keep your children in school. Don’t force me to have to take the necessary steps in law to force attendance. C. A. MILES, Acting Dircetor of Relief and Attendance Officer. COMMISSIONERS TURN OVER 1933 TAX BOOKS TO SHERIFF 1 Per Cent Discount Allowed On Taxes Paid in October The Board of County Commission ers met in regular session Monday and transacted matters of routine business. A number of claims were ■ i issued. The 1933 tax books were turned over to the sheriff for collec tion. One per cent discount will be allowed on all taxes paid during Oc tober and one half of one per cent during November. The 87 cent tax rate is slightly higher than that of last year, but the reduction in valuations on real! estate actually makes taxes lower' than last year. The land of delinquent taxpayers of 1932 will be advertised during the month of October. Selection of New Men For Emergency Conservat. Work The selection of 75,000 new men for assignment to the Civilian Con servation forest work corps has been in process for the past ten days or so by the Labor Department and the Veterans’ Administration, according to an announcement of Robert Fech ner, Director of Emergency Conser vation Work. Estimates obtained at the War De partment indicate that 100,000 will have left the corps to take other jobs or for other reasons prior to October 15th, the extreme date set for dis charge and reenrollment. Selection of all but veterans is be ing done under the supervision of W. Frank Persons of the Labor Depart ment, at the various state selection agencies. The men chosen will be sent to the camps early in October for duty, during the winter enrollment period. The veteran quota will be selected by the Veterans’ Bureau through U. S. regional offices on the basis of which number may be selected at this time. The total number of woodsmen now being selected, as above stated, is 75,000 due to the possibility that those leaving the service may not reach 100,000 as estimated, and the further desire of the President that the forest corps shall not exceed a maximum of 314,000,14,000 of which will be Indians under John Collier, Commissioner of Indian Affairs. Opportunity for reenrollment is be ing offered every man now employed in the Civilian Conservation Corps. Plans have been completed to make it possible for the members of Corps to spend the winter in healjf^ft surroundings in cam weather ia potjiiya ? PARENTS’ RECOVERY ACT SUGGESTED BY P.T.A.PRES Urges Parents to Study Needs of The Modern Home. Mrs. Hugh Bradford, president of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, suggests a “Parents’ Re covery Act” to do for the nation’s homes what it is hoped the National Industrial Recovery Act will do for the nation’s business. In an address over WRC, Washing ton, on September 20th, Mrs. Brad ford said among other things: “Just now we all seem to be living and breathing in terms of blue eagles, codes and recovery programs. Produ cer, consumer and the business man all are interested in codes to make living a matter of comfort and of justice. Parents talk of codes and teachers believe that schools have a profound part in building good citi zenship and loyalty to the nation’s needs.” These principles are being taught in codes of character educa tion in our schools, the speaker point ed out. Stressing the importance of the fa mily as a unit in our national life, the speaker continued: “Perhaps it has seemed that in this recovery program the family has no place. Our homes, changed as they are from those of pakt generations, have provided se curity not only to the family itself during this trying period, but to the nation. They have helped to formu late wholesome attitudes toward na tional situations, and to shut out all but patient courage and endurance. American homes have been indispen sable in providing an atmosphere of courage and self-control in the past and we must look to them for assis tance in the future. But homes them selves have been affected, and, for the future of the homes, a recovery program is needed. That we need a code for parents has been suggested by our homemaking chairman, Miss Adelaide Baylor. We have within our homes great opportunities.” “Buying at blue eagle shops, spend ing money for serviceable goods and nutritious foods are not the only mea sures for assisting the material val ues of home life. There are other con ditions to be noted, For example, work. Let’s teach the family to work the home. Boys and girls appreciate a home that they help maintain.Home life contributes to the character of the family. “In the past we have seemed to do two extreme things: One, to permit children to labor in occupations which a futuer of ill health, scant schooling and to little opportunities to develop properly as valuable members of so ciety; the other, to rear children with the idea that parents are not only willing to provide for them, but that it is the sole purpose of parents to prevent a child from participating in anything that meant effort and inia tive because it might be called work. “Let us consider work in the home as a blessing which contributes to the character of al within. A child whc has learned to work at home can bet ter adjust himself to his responsibili ties in the business world. Let us make it popular once more for fami lies to work together. “Just as the schools are seeking to readjust themselves, revalue educa tion, and maintain high standards, so oto the home has had to look to its educational possibilities. The poten tialities of homes where parents use common sense combined with modern child psychology are not yet to be measured. Fewer unhappy, nervous, iritabfe children, fewer social delin quents, and fewer serious mental dis orders will result when parents have learned to measure themselves by modem standards for wise guidance of children. “Parents of young children are stu dying new methods based on old wis dom; the parents of children about to be graduated from high school are wondering as to whether colleges are going to give youth the training ade quate for life and for work; parents are wondering about leisure time and how it can be used to best advantage; what is to be done for and with the college graduate who is continuing unhappily as a dependent because there is no remunerative job for him; parents are wondering how to turn to advantage the circumstance which provide leisure; time for reading, re creation, recovery from hectic plea sures, and preparation for new life standards and of achievement and happiness. “Why do we wait for someone else to begin the recovery program ?There are enough parents in any one com munity to crystallize sentiment for better health, better amusements, fewer accidents, finer citizens, and intelligent living.” Concluding, Mrs. Bradford declar ed: “The Parents’ Recovery Program needs to incLude a willingness to seek guidance in the field of parent edu cation, perseverance and diligence in making/ teach home safe and happy, and courage to demand of a commu nity security and protection for such horn t is true that we are facing many ew conditions and many new oppor tunities. The future of the homes of America rests squarely upon the gjiouldeis of the parents of today.

SITE CLEARED FOR COUNTY PRISON CAMP Cages for a temporary camp have been set on the sight for a permanent camp near the ball park in Sparta, and a well is now being bored. Sever al acres on the site have been cleared under the supervision of Mr. Tom Pendergrass, State Prison mainten ance official. Prisoners are expected at the camp soon. It is not definitely understood whether the permanent camp will be built by local labor and prisoners or let by contract. When completed the camp will be occupied by 75 or 100 prisoners, who will be used for the upkeep of the county roads, under the supervision of the appointed fore men for each division of the county. During the last meeting of the General Assembly the departments of State Prison and the Highway Com mission were combined, and all work is now done under the supervision of the Highway and Prison Commis sion.

(By Gertrude S. Carraway in The Raleigh New3 and Observer.) The drama of the storm that lash ed North Carolina’s coast, already fading in the mind of the public at large, grows more poignant with the sufferers as they count their losses. So far as relates to the Red Cross, the volume of relief to be given in creases as the chek by trained dis aster workers proceeds. Many complicated human problems are being brought to light in the sur veys, but none seem darkened with despondency. While gladly accepting aid in forms beyond their own pre sent resources, the sufferers are also doing all they can for themselves, and they are doing it in cheerful spir it. The air of optimism and good na ture, evident everywhere, is truly re markable. Cyclones are always accompanied bytorrential rains which the rain sheds cannot carry away fast enough. Damage by clean rain is bad enough, but not so disheartening as damage, by a soaking in miry water. Many houses in east Carolina that escaped loss by wind are still damaged by water, with swollen doors that will not shut, warped and grimy furniture that will not hold together. Nothing Left. Two men and a boy were coming up from the sound this week, after having tried to wash the mud from some bedclothes. “They’ll always be shrunk and stiff, said the tired moth er sadly. She was no longer young. TThe water had peeled the veneer from her piano, the pride of her house hold. It would never again play. The tide had covered every drawer and every trunk, even soaking the burial clothes she had been holding for her aged and infirm mother. “I owned ev erything clear” she remarked, “but now I haven’t got anything.” The water entered so many hidden nooks that it is related on Cedar Is land that one housekeeper, in open ing her soaked trunks, found on the inside a large drowned goose. Prac tically every automobile there was ruined by water. Even a huge cistern was uprooted from the ground and hurledseveralhundred feet. A farmer near the coast was camp ing with his family in a leanto, made of boards of the house that had been blown down. Coats, bedding, mosqui to netting, food and a small oil stove had been supplied. In his field his crop of sweet potatoes, which he had hop ed would help pull him out of debt, were rotting, for they had been cov ered with salt spray, and it would be a year or so before the salt silted through and left the soil fit for plant ing. let, he was courageously plan ning to put back his home with the salvage and the additional materials given by the Red Cross. “We’ll build strong this time,” said the wife, “but the work of earthly hands won’t stand if the good Lord wills to show us His might” Basis of Need. The Red Cross is not an insurance company, which restores on a basis of loss. It restores on a basis of need alone, for no relief fund ever raised in any disaster, including the $17, 000,000 in the Mississippi flood of 1927, ever paid more than a fraction of the entire loss. But this relief •nidges over the gap between enfor ced pauperism and economic indepen dence. First among needs is food, shelter and coverings. To supply these is a part of emergency relief. Then cornea the rehabilitation period, when thei sulferers receive the things necessa to restore them to more or lesa of their normal life, i Red Cross relief workers in all cases look into the resources and re quiiements of the sufferer and his iamily, to see how far he can help himself. He may have untouched re sources elsewhere, so may effect his own recovery, or he may need to be started anew in life. A careful and sympathetic investigation and study of facts by trained and experienced workers determine the course to be taken.
