The general canvass in the tenth
Annual Community Chest campaign
will open Friday morning, and is
scheduled to close a week from that
time o n April 26. The campaign
goal this year has been established at
$99,175, which represents an increase
of $11,500 over the amount ^sked last
year. The admission of Ft. Hamilton
Hospital to the Chest organization
with a budget of $8500 accounts for
most of this increase.
More than 350 Hamilton citizens
have volunteered their services for
work in the campaign. About one
half of this number are ladies who

VOICES FROM THE
Dear Sir—Wanted: a martyr judge.
It is suggested to any judge wishing
to be canonized that he resign from
the bench rather than be a factor in
the brutality of prohibition enforce
Are there no conscientious object
ors on the bench? There are plenty
of them at the bar (this is no pun)
who object most valiantly to the Vol
tead law. The defeat of the Marshall
bill emphasized to the public that the
squire was the only judge who re
ceived compensation from those he
tried. What can the public think of
the drinking judges joking over their
glasses about prohibition violators
To be sure, they are not financially
interested but if they know that
oektails are not harmful to them
selves why should they not be mor
ally interested? They should be very
much interested in the increasing and
probably warranted criticism of the
legal profession. Nothing would like
ly tend more to restore confidence in
the "greatest of the professions" and
improve the discernment of legisla
tors than judicial, wrathful diatribes
against laws that seek to regulate
our tastes. A few might in conse
quence suffer from apoplexy, but
would not that spilt blood be more
ennobled than any ever shed in war?
'The blood of the martyr is the seed
of the church." However, martyrdom
seems not to appeal to the judge.
Complacency, which is never an ingre
dient of the martyr, appears to be
the debasing alloy in judicial temper
ament as exemplified in liquor cases.
How strange it is that the influ
ence of judges in making good laws
and repealing obsolete ones is so la
mentally weak. In other professions
we find doctors, teachers and preach
ers in and out of their societies -mak
ng and guiding public opinion.
The answer to this criticism of
judicial hypocrisy and complacency
in liquor cases will no doubt he that
the judge is to apply the law, not
make it. There may follow some
twaddle about law observance nad
the necessity of obeying all laws lest
we lose respect for law in general
For the same reason we eat things
we don't like for if we don't we
might not eat the things we do like
and have a fatal anorexia. (By the
way, April 8 was listing day. How
many of us listed our personal prop
erty according to law?)
The dry.s have been urging the
destruction of the big bootlegger,
knowing that they cannot extermin
ite the small cellar variety. The wets
have made the little judge, the
squire, harmless. So it has come to
this: The drys hunt the big boot
legger.s through the Jones and Vol
stead laws they sanction any meas
ure of bootlegger extermination. The
wets also are out for big game, the
judges but their only weapon is an
appeal to the judge's moral and com
mon sense. This shows the vast dif
ference in the ethics of the two
groups: the compulsory virtue versus

Reported Smallest In I
Washington, D. C. (I. L. N. S.)
The farm population of the Unitedl
States is now the smallest in twentyl
years, reports the bureau of agricul-l
tural economics, U. S. department ofl
agriculture, which estimates the farm!
population of 27,511,000 persons on
January 1, 1929, as compared with a|
peak of 32,000,000 persons in 1909.
The bureau's estimate also shows I
a decrease in farm population during|
the past year despite improved agri
cultural conditions and a slight slack-1
ening in industrial employment, the
January, 1, 1929, figure comparing
with a farrn population of 27,099,0001
persons on January 1, 1928.
The decrease in farm population the I
past year would have been much
greater were it not offset by an ex-1
cess of births over deaths, the fig-|
ures revealing that in the movement[
of population from and to farms, 1,
960,000 persons left farms during thel
year, and 1,362,000 persons moved
from cities to farms.
The movement away from farms!
slowed up somewhat during the year|
as compared with immediately preced
ing years, but the movement froml
cities to farms was also smaller.I
Thus it is shown that 1,960,000 per
sons left farms during the past yaer,
compared with 1,978,000 in 1927, andj
with 2,155,000 in 1926. The move
ment from cities to farms was 1,362,-1
000 persons last year, 1,374,000 in|
1927, and 1,135,000 in 1926.

Raleigh, N. C. (I. L. N. S.)—The
workers of the South are discontent

labor conditions, President T. A. Wil

Federation of Labor, declared in The
Union Herald of this city.—
"Three strikes in two weeks of fac
tory workers in two states, and the
stopping of an efficiency survey in an
other plant when the workers object
ed, shows that the Anglo-Saxon work
ers of the South are determined to
change an intolerable situation," Mr.
Wilson said. He continued:
"And yet Southern chambers of
commerce advertise to other sections
of the country that we 100-per-cent
American workers are docile, tract
i "With these facts before us, every
local union in North Carolina and the
South should immediately start an
organization campaign, co-operating
with all others so engaged. As a part
of this campaign much educational
work should be done among all work
ers, whether there is a prospect of
immediate organization or not.
The future, at least, is ours."
