Better Outlook - For Business,
Says Mr. Harding.
Winston-Salem, N. C., Jan. 21.
In an address to the chamber of com
merce here, W. P. G. Harding, gov
ernor of the federal reserve board,
expressed the conviction that the
worst of the readjustmnet period is
over. 'There are signs cerywhere
of the revival of business in the
spring," he said.
Governor Harding arrived in Win
ston-Salem this morning, coming here
in response to an invitation from
citizens. His address made a deep im
pression on the large number of
business men who heard him, and his
cheerful view of future conditions
offered much encouragement to the
business interests of the community.
"In working back to normal," said
Governor ? Harding, "an important
step has been taken in the recov
ery of a normal state of mind in bus
iness, of a better sense of proportion
and in the restoration of saner and
sounder judgments. Many signs are
in ^evidence that the country now ap
preciates the fact that in order to
prosper it must produce, that in or
der to continue production it must
sell and in order to sell it must buy.
"Looking over the existing con
ditions today, both in this country
and abroad, things are sounder and
better today than a year ago. Then
the thinking men knew conditions of
readjustment were impending and we
were apprehensive. Now the worst is
over and things are going along with
"Our problem should be faced with
optimism, courage and confidence.
Let's all work together to make 1921
a period of genuine constructive
"In working out the situation it is
necessary that those who have ex
tended credits should exercise pa
tience, moderation and forbearance
in cases where debtors show ^them
selves to be' worthy of confidence
and are willing to meet reasonable
requirements. I have observed no dis
position on the part of banks to force
collections or foreclosures or other
drastic means except as a last resort.
"A return to the normal, which
will be a slow and gradual process,
involves work-hard work of every
description-and calls for the best
efforts of those who manage the com
mercial and industrial ennterprises
of the country, the intelligent guid
ance of those who direct the use of
capital and credit, the productive
energies of those whose contribution
is manual labor, the full cooperation
all along the line. No satisfactory
substitute for woi*k has ever been
Grenville Mills Employing 10
000 on Full Schedule.
Greenville, Jan. 22.-All of the
twenty-two cotton mills in Green
ville employing about 10,000, are
operating on full schedule now, ac
cording to a statement today by. a
Brown ftason, vice president of
Judson Mills, one of the largest
plants in the South manufacturnig
fine shirting, voiles, stated today that
this mill had received enough orders
in the last thirty days to keep the mill
running full time for two months. In
dividual orders are not as large as
these received this .time last year,
continued this'executive, but the ag
gregate quantity of goods is most
satisfactory, it was said.
Since the first of the year there
has been a distinct change for the
.better in the cotton mill industry in
the Carolinas, and the whole outlook
is more optimistic than it was a few
wesk ago according to leading deal
ers in Southern Mills' stocks. They
report that mill stocks are beginning
to move once more, and at advancing
There are now over seven hun
dred cotton mills in the two Carolinas

Presid?nt-Elect Sends Message
to People of South.
Atlanta, Ga., ?Jan. 21.-A new
spirit of united Americanism, holding
itself above sectional and. partisan di
visions and making secure the indus
tries of the whole nation alike, was
bespoken by President-elect Harding
tonight in a message to the people of
The message, written at the re
quest of Clark Howell, editor of the
Atlanta Constitution, and the demo
cratic national committeeman from
Georgia, was made public here on
the arrival of thc train which is tak
ing the president-elect to Florida. It
"Of course, I have no message to
the people bf the United States. Per
haps the south would be interested
to know, however, of one ambition
which I cherish'. I want to 15e the in
strumentality in establishing that
complete concord of union which I
hold to be essential to the American
fulfillment. I realize how the politi
cal solidarity of the south followed
the unfortunate days of tjjfe Civil
War. I know how that solid Jnty has
been encouraged on the one hand,
and I think I understand the desire
to break it on the other hand.
"It is not specifically a republican
ambition. It is rather to be accredit
ed to a desire to establish complete
mutuality of purpos? and oneness of
ambition in America.
"There is little left of the old. time
hostility and there isn't any occasion
for any section of America to pin its
aspirations to the fortunes of one
party. I think it is fair to assume that
all political parties mean to be best
for our common country. As a re
publican, I believe that many of the
republican policies are calculated to
.best serve all of America. For in
stance, I believe there is a great sig
nificance ni. the coming tariff con
gress to be held in Atlanta. I believe
most cordially in prospering Ameri
ca first. I do not see how we can re
tain, our home markets, upon which
American good fortune must be
founded, and at the same time main
tain American standards of produc
tion and American standards of liv
ing unless we make other peoples
with lower standards pay fqr the
privilege of trading in the American
markets. Ours is the best market in
the world, because we are largest in
consumption and the ablest to buy.
The application lies in aperfectly
justifiable ambition . to.jB&ke ttf?
southlamdwas industrially eeaiinent asl
the states of the north and east.
There ought to be the flame of indus
try here in exceptional significance,
because of your vast natural resourc
es. Your people want precisely the
same things which are found in the
natural ambitions of the north and
west. There isn't the slightest excuse
for a sectional line in America. We
are people with one flag, and it is
folly to allow long time prejudices
to stand in the way of fullness of
understanding and the utmost cor
diality of relationship.
"The people of the south are just
as much interested as any other geo
graphical location in the development
of an American merchant marine.
Out of the abundance of resources,
out of our greater ability to produce,
and out of our boasted American ef
ficiency ought to come American em
inence in world-wide trade. We ought
to send our cargoes from southland
ports, just as numerously as we (lo
from northern annd western ports.
Of course, as a general rule, we can
not sell where we do not buy, but
with a rational economic policy safe
guarded in protective tariffs we can
buy the things, the production of
which is not essential to our own
good fortune, and expand our trade
with those of whom we buy to supply
.our own needs which can not be sup
plied here at home. rj
"I am sure the incoming adminis
tration wishes to . see, figuratively
speaking, every southern port whit
ened by the sails of commerce and
know that our carriers are taking
messages of good will and amity
along with our cargoes to all the mar
kets of the earth."

describing the troubles from which
she obtained relief through the use of

of Cardul, proposed getting it for me.

he would get me some Cardul, which
he did. It strengthened me ... My
doctor said I got along fine. I was in
good healthy condition. I cannot
say too much for it"
