PRESIDENT WILSON FOR
LIGHT WINE AND BEER
Bomb Into Prohibitionists
In Message To
President Wilson, in his message to
Congress Tuesday, recommended repeal
of the war time prohibtion law so far
as it applies to wine and beer only;
announced definitely that the railroad
systems and telegraph and telephone
lines would be returned to private ow
nership; urged a revision of war taxes,
particularly to abolish the manufac
turers and retail excise, and outlined
generally a program respecting labor.
These were the "high spots" of the
President's message cabled from Paris.
Besides that, he again urged enact
ment of the woman suffrage constitu
tional amendment); recommended that
the tariff laws be supplied with teeth
to protect, American industry against
foreign attack; spoke for legislation
through the expansion of shipping and
backed Secretary Lane's program for
land for returning soldiers.
Congress heard a unique document;
the only one of its kjnd ever transmit
ted across the ocean from a President
on a foreign shore. For the first time
In six years it heard a presidental mes
sage read by a reading clerk, instead
of assembling to hear the President
deliver an address in person.
The recommendation for the repeal
of war-time prohibition and for return
of the rail and wire systems, while
not unexpected by some, contained the
greatest element of surprise and pro-,
voked the most widespread comment pf
the many tasks set before Congress by
Resolution and Petition
"The Dice of Destiny" is the title of
our next serial story. Watch for the
first installment next week.
WHEREAS, the Board of Education
of Pasquotank county, and school com

are paying taxes for the said school.
THEREFORE, WE, the citizens of

senting the educational interests of the
children of said County.
. RESOLVED FURTHER: : That we
condemn the course and conduct of the
Board of Education of Pasquotank, and

in their places, good and suitable men

schooling as provided by law. i-
RESOLVED FURTHER: That these
