An African woman once asked a sad question of
a missionary, and we should lot its challenge rincj
in our ear* and stir our hearts. She said, "Why do
not more come to tell us? Is it because they do
not love us, or because they do not love Chris»t
very much?"—S. S. Times.
A business man old enough in years and
in his basiness career to be regarded as a
pioneer in Hendersonville, Dr. W. H. Justus
has passed on. He lived beyond man's al
lotted three score and ten years: and his
life was a success. He was successful in
business, in making a sterling reputation
as a good citizen, as a Christian gentleman,
and in all the relations of life.
Dr. Justus was known for his business
integrity, for his quiet and courteous de
meanor. for his kindly interest in his fellow
men and women and his loyalty to his com
munity and section.
"He was a good man." is the encomium
which has been most frequently pro
nounced since the news of the death of Dr.
Justus spread through the community in
which he lived .uprightly and labored dili
gently for so many years. In his devotion
to his family and to his duty as he ap
praised it, in his diligence and energy in
business, in his sincerity and honesty in all
the relations of life, the record of Dr. W.
H. Justus offers a worthy example to his
descendants and the younger generation of
citizens of this city and section.

A traitor to the best interests of his com
munity, State and country is the man who
takes advantage of present economic and
financial conditions for selfish purposes. It'
thfe man resides in Hendersonville or else
where in this vast country, this statement
holds good. The Times-News addresses its
remarks to the people of this community
and the surrounding territory.
There are many ways in which selfish
ness and lack of interest in and considera
tion for one's fellows may be shown at this
time. Let us have none of these manifesta
tions in Hendersonville and our section of
North Carolina. Let us have the manifesta
tions of the spirit of unselfishness, consid
eration of the interests of others, the spirit
of co-operation, of team-work, of commun
ity loyalty, a high moral courage and de
termination to bring this section of our
State and country through this perilous pe
riod with flying banners.
Yesterday, The Times-News suggested
that we endeavor, in so far as possible, to
carry on business as usual. As the eco
nomic conditions which confront the coun
try must be remedied by the reorganiza
tion and reconstruction of the business
structure, clearly this is the only sane and
safe policy which promises recovery from
present conditions.
Anything that is done to obstruct the
flow of business at this time shows a spirit
of disloyalty to community and country, I:
thoughtlessly done it should be promptly
corrected. If done in a spirit of craven fear
or a spirit of selfishness it stamps the indi
vidual as an undesirable citizen. In saying
this The Times-News is not even uggestiny
that the bars of sound business policy bt
let down and that there be inaugurated i
period of reckless practices. Let all oui
business men stick to policies of recognizer
soundness. Don't throw to the winds th
policies and practices which have beer
found st&ble and solid in years of busi
ness experience in this country.
Do business as usual and do it right!
With the banks closed and the financia
streams of the country obstructed, the bij
problem with business men is to secur
cash to enable them to carry on. Thi
means that people who can pay must g
right on paying. They must spend for noi
mal needs and exert themselves to me*
their bills. The policy of hoarding is th
- most unsound and dangerous policy thj
can possibly be adopted at this time. Th^
banking troubles were brought on by the
withdrawal of cash from the banks for
hoarding. This is not the time to hoard;
and only those who are weak through fear
will do it.
Pay your bills! Meet your obligations tc
the limit of your last dollar! Let us keep
the cash in Hendersonville and in our ter
ritory circulating. That is the only way to
keep business moving and to 'prevent far
greater difficulties and troubles than we
have experienced so far.
The Carolina Theatre, successor to Tho
Rex, which was for a number of years an
amusement institution in Hendersonville, is
one of the most artistically beautiful pic
ture houses in the country. The largo
crowds attending the opening of The Caro
lina Monday evening were agreed that this
statement is true and all patrons were en
thusiastic in commenting on the beautiful
theatre, the charming furnishings and tho
splendid sound equipment which, as far as
results are concerned, is not excelled in
any theatre in the country.
Everyone connected with the building of
The Carolina merits congratulations at this
time. There is Captain Ellison A. Smyth,
owner of The Rex real estate, and the man
who furnished the capital to build The
Carolina; the Publix-Kincey Corporation,

Hendersonville under most adverse condi
tions, yet with sufficient faith in the future
of the town and section to be willing to
take a long lease for the operation of th;;
new theatre; Architect E. (J. StillwelJ,

I speaks for itself to every patron of The
Carolina; and, in fact, every person who

motion picture house which is not only a
credit to Hendersonville but one which will
be for years to come a show place and an
advertisement for this town and section of
North Carolina.
Builders and operators ot i ne Carolina,
j The Times-News offers its felicitations,
i You have achieved success in a generous
measure, in constructing and equipping
this houoe. May the future bring many
years of successful and profitable business
to the men who have the moral courage
and the business nerve to go ahead with
this enterprise in times like these!

I crees, or operating with drastic restrictions upon
! the amount of cash that might be withdrawn, it
was inevitable that steps of a similar nature should
he directed by Governor Blackwood for the banks
of this state.
The banking holiday or moratorium declared for
South Carolina by the governor for the coming
week is, as the governor points out, a move to
protect the interests of all bank depositors in South
Carolina. It can readily be seen that when most
of the banks in one state of the union suspend
operations, the unusual demand for cash money
for the transaction of business places an additional
strain upon the immediately liquid resources of
banks in other states, and with the spread of state
wide suspensions to other areas, the strain is fur
ther increased upon those banks which remain
open. Thus the situation has steadily progressed
until almost a nation-wide suspension of banking
activities has been forced.
It is a matter of much satisfaction and <leep sig
nificance that South Carolina has been cither the
last or one of the very last states to be forced in+o
a course of this kind. That fact is in itself eloquent
testimonial to the strength and soundness of the
banks of this state. There is no reason why any
depositor should be apprehensive as to the security
| of the funds which he has entrusted to them.
And now that suspension or very drastic restric
tions of banking activities have become effective
throughout the entire nation, it is obvious to every
j thinking citizen that immediate steps will of neces
sity have to be taken to remedy the situation so
that the nation can coninue to transact business.
That conclusion indicates that the bank "holiday"
in this state will necessarily be short-lived, since
a speedy clearing of the situation over the country
must now ensue.—Greenville (S. C.) News.

KALEIGH, March 7. — The
Newman-Murphy bills regulating
the truck industry in North Caro
lina. which are openly sponsored
by the railroads, have been modi
fied only slightly by a house ju
diciary No. 1 sub-committec in

they were introduced a month
At present a truck, trailer and
load can weigh as high as 40,000
pounds, but under the substitute
bills reported "without prejudice"
by the house judiciary committer
No. 1, the maximum weight of
trucks and loads would be limited,
to 15,000 pounds. The length ofj
the trucks is set as 33 feet, exclu-1
sive of bumpers, and the corpora- j
tion commission is left with the j
power of fixing minimum rates
which the trucks may charge.

slightly modified," according to
W. I\ Morton, executive secretary.

acted, virtually wipe out the truck j
industry in North Carolina and, (
according to estimates made by
the revenue department, result in ,
a loss to the state <>f $4,582,000 '
in revenue now paid in license
and gasoline taxes."
"The policy of the railroads in
their attempt to legislate their
competitors out of business Is
wrong in principle because they
ask the state by legislative action
to remove competition. If the
bills are passed, approximately
75,000 people will be thrown out
of work, 321,000,000 in equip
ment will be confiscated and
freight rates will go up. The fruit
and vegetable growers in Eastern
North Carolina, the livestock raid
ers in the west, and the manufac
turers in the Piedmont will suffer
irreparable damage and loss if!
motor transportation is to be
eliminated in this state.
"The automotive industry paid
in taxes in 1930 .$1,100,388,270,
with a valuation of five and a half
billion dollars, and a tax rato of
18 per cent. The railroads, for
the same year, paid $346.220,('>(50 j
on a valuation of twenty-five bil

NEA Sorvirc Writer
tV/ASHINOTON,—The imniincncc
"of the Roosevelt administration
and the general failure of Congress
to meet national problems has con
tinued to inspire, in this capital
city at least, an increasingly fu
rious speculation as to the ability
or "willingness of Mr. Roosevelt to
assume dictatorial powers.
Much of this is tittered by con
servatives wlio want Roosevelt to
be bold enough to jam through
measures dear to them—usually on
the theory that budget balancing, a
sales tax and drastic reduction of
veterans' expenses are essential to
recovery—or by liberals who hope
he will be bold enough to make
Congress "soak the rich" and adopt
a vast public works program.
Everyone, however, raises the
question as to the possibility that
Roosevelt can and will become the
great national leader which every
one who discusses the matter
agrees the country needs. Regard
less of whether we should be led
to the left, right or straight ahead,
the question whether we are to be
led anywhere at all remains' a
guessing game and Mr. Roosevelt
is at last on the spot.
♦ » *
TYTEITHER iri his pre-convention
■*-' campaign, in his election cam
paign or in the E:onths of the lame
duck Congrc-ss has Roosevelt
aroused any enthusiastic convic
tion that he is a Moses suddenly
popped up in the wilderness. Hence
no one is able- to be over-optimistic
?r profoundly di.$couraged about
him. And a hundred million per
sons want to know what kind of
a president he is going to be.
Someone must grab Congress >;y
the neck and make it move. Of
course the only person who can
possibly <lo it is Roosevelt. And
advisors will try to pull him and
push him in so many different di
rections that only a vigorous,
strong man. standing on. hie own
feet with a driving will to wmash
through obstacles when persuasion
doesn't suffice, can make much
headway in ?ny direction.
Everyone hopes — although some
doubt—that lie will be abic to ex
ert complete mastery over the
Democratic leaders of tho new
Congress as well as over the huge
majorities of Democratic members.
That feat is likely to take every
thing he has, aud perhaps more.
His chief weapons will be the
patronage petrcr, the possibility of
appeais to the country for support
and Iron in Roosevelt's system
whicn many admirers have thought
they saw behind his almost por«
petual grinning good nature.

rpHE head-waggers are now bas
ing their lugubrious fears on
the faiiur; of Roosevelt to exert
any important influence on the dy
ing lame duck Congress. His only
apparent efforts to intervene in any
>way were seen , in his conference
with Democratic leaders at New
York, which developed into a fiasco,
aud in his effective effort to kill
off Democratic proposals for a
sales tax.
