social insurance V *';
, We read a great deal these days about plans
for What is generally called ''social insurance."
Under that heading are included all sorts of
%NJ schemes for health insurance, unemployment iu
v suranee. aecident insurance, widow insurance and
maternity insurance, as well as old age insurance.
^ None of the plans seems to have been worked out
very fully as yet. Moat or alt of them involve
^ contributions by the state or federal government.
~ Some apply only to industrial porkers, some do
? not discriminate between one (lass and another,
r* Some have provisions for contributions to the iu
^ suranee funds by the workers themselves, or by
~ employer*, or both, and some would haye govern
* ment take care oi everybody.
^ The subject is very much alive just n$w, and
we h^ve no doubt that vigorous efforts will be
j made this coming winter to get some legislation
for the federal assumption of some degree of re
sponsibility for some of these projects. It s^ems
to us to be something to be looked into very care
( fully.

Dr. F. E. Townsend, of Long Beach, a retjred phy

| eml government The idea has caught ot\ like wild
f^re, and organisations have been set up in twenty
states, we understand, to get signers to a great
petition to congress for such legislation.
✓ As there are about 10,Q00,Q0Q persons oye^ 60
in the United Statee, *pd the proportion of elder^
people is increasing, this would mean abcut two
billion dollars a month or twenty-four bttlions «
year, to be provided oi^t of. tifc ipepme. But the
a4vt*ca^s of the plan have *tt|$hed to it a pro
1. \ ' *
vision that the whole $200 must be spent each
month, and contend that putting such money into
circulation would immediately restore prosperity
and make it no burden at all
If that theory is right, why not go the whole hog

Peaceful picketing is legal, but it is interesting

One of the latest decisions of the U. S. Supreme
Court was written by Chief Justice William How
ard Taft, former president of the United States in
the case of American Steel Foundries vs. Tri-State
Central Trade Council, 257 U. S. 184, 42 S. Ct. 72,
I excerpts which are as follows:
f "In going to and from work, men have a right
to as {fee a passage without obstruction as the
streets afford, consistent with the right of others
to enjoy the same privilege. We aye a social peo
ple and the accosting by pne of another in s*n of
fensive way and $n offer by one to communicate
and discuss information with a view to influencing
the other's action are not regarded as aggression
qr a violation of that other's rights. If, however,
the offer is declined, as it may rightfully be, then
persistence, importunity, following and dogging
become unjustifiable annoyance and obstruction
which is likely soon to savor of intimidatjon. From
all of this the person sought to be influenced has
a right to be free and his employer has a right to
have him free. .
- • » • - f
"The nearer this importunate im-en-c^nng.
employes or would-be employes isj to the place of
business, the greater the obstruction and interfer
ence with the business and especially with the
property right of access of the employer. Attempt
ing discussion and argument of this kind ii\ such
proximity is certain to attract attention and con
gregation of the curious, or, it may be, interested
bystanders, and thus increase the obstructions as
well as the aspect of intimidation which the situa
tion quickly assumes.
"In the present case the three or four groups ,of
picketers were made up of from four to twelve in
a group. They constituted the picket line. Each
union interested, electricians, cranemen, machin
ists and blacksmiths, had several representatives
on the picket line, and assaults and violence en
sued. They began early and continued fypm time
to time during the three weeks of the strike after
the picketing began, All information tendered, all
arguments advanced and all persuasion used und^r
such circumstances were intimidation. They coqld [
not be otherwise. It is idle talk of peaceful com
munication in such a place and under such condi
tions. The numbers of the pickets in the groups
constituted intimidation.
"The name 'picket* indicated a militant purpose,
inconsistent with peaceful persuasion. The crtwds
| they drew made the passage of the employes to
i and from the place of work, one of running the
gauntlet. Persuasion or communication attempted
I in such a presence and under such conditions wps
anything but peaceful and lawful.
"When one or more assaults or disturbances en
sued, they characterised the whole campaign, which
became effective because of its intimidating char
acter, in spite of the admonitions given by the !
leaders to their followers as to lawful methods to j
be pursued, however sincere. Our conclusion is
(that picketing thus instituted is unlawful and can
not be peaceable and may be properly enjoined by
the specific term because its meaning is clearly un
derstood in the sphere of the controversy by those
who are parties to it."—Cleveland Star.

Judge U. S. District Court of
Prefaratory Note
The thought has come to me
that someone who had a part in
the work of the Constitutional
Commission should prepare a se
ries of articles explaining to the
people the changes which the Re
vised Constitution makes over the
present Constitution of the State.
While I think that some other
member of the Commission could
do this work better than I, the
engagements of the other mem
bers have been such that no one
has yet undertaken a series of ar
ticles dealing with the instrument
as a whole, although valuable dis
cussions of particular provisions
have been submitted by Judge
Stacy, Mr. Maxwell, Dr. Poe and
Major Butler. I have accordingly
prepared a series of brief articles,
which deal with the important
changes made in our fundamental
law bv the Revised Constitution,
and which I hope may be of aid
to the people in understanding
these changes.
In presenting these articles I
trust that my position may not be
misunderstood. L favor the adop
tion of the Revised Constitution;
but I am not claiming the credit
of authorship. As a matter of
fact, it is the composite work of
the Constitutional Commission, as
modified by the Legislature; and)
it falls far short of embodying all
the changes in our fundamental
law which I think such an instfu-1
ment should embody. I do think,
ho-yvever, that it is a great con
structive improvement over the
present Constitution and that it
is entitled to support for that
reason. I wish to make clear also
that I have no personal or politi
cal motive in favoring; it. I have
been absolutely out of politics
for nine years; and no political
motive with respect to the funda
mental law of the State makes
any appeal to me. I shall not re
gard the adoption of the Revised
Constitution as in any sense a
personal victory, nor would I re
gard the failure to adpot it as ni
any sense a personal loss. The is
sues involved transcend personali
ties and partisan politics. They
are no less than the issues of bet
ter government and more efficient
government, in which all citizens
irrespective of party should be vi
tally interested.
1. The Need of Revision
The Constitution of the State
is the State's fundamental law.
It is a statement of those princi
ples upon which sovereign power
is exercised by the people. It has
two functions, (1) to protect the
liberties of the citizen against
abuse of power on the part of the
State, and (2) to set up a frame
work of government for the exer
cise of governmental powers. With
the first of these functions we
need not concern ourselves; for
the Revised Constitution makes no
substantial change over the old.
The great guarantees of the rights
of the individual citizen developed
through more than a thousand
years of the history of our race
are embodied in Article One of
the present Constitution and they
have been brought forward with
out substantial change in Article
One of the Revised Constitution.
It is only with respect to the
framework of the government
that the Revised Constitution
makes changes over the old.
These changes have been ren
dered necessary by the great
changes which have taken place in
the life of our people since the
present Constitution was adopted
If you and I could or would

The trouble 'with us is that
nearly all of us have something
wrong with us. Your weaknesses

my temptations do not run that

I You can never tell what a man
I is up against unless you can look
; into his heart and see what he
has to contend with. He may be
fighting terrifically with himself.
Every now and then he may lose
the fight and go down in defeat;
perhaps in one of those defeats
he goes to jail or to the electric
chair, or possibly he merely gets
social ostracism.
Some persons appear to make
no upward struggle at all; per
haps they do not. Some persons
appear to have no consciences at
all; perhaps they have not. I know
a man who does the most outra
geous things imaginable; yet his
conduct does not seem to hurt him
in his own estimation. I have of
ten wondered whether he is as in
different to moral questions as he
' appears to be, or whether he is
j putting up a brave front, determ
i ined not to be thrown down and
crushed by his own shortcomings.
There is a great deal of front
in the lives of human beings. Men
j who are scoffed at for being
| braggarts are often merely endea
i voring to bolster up their self
; respect by trying to appear to be
1 something when in their hearts
| they think they are nothing. The
biggest boasters around their
; homes are usually men who have
gotten nowhere; they are pathetic
when and if their front i« taken

A clear realization of our defi

But compassion for those who
slip, stumble, fall, should not car

stumbling, falling in ourselves or
in anyone else. Constanjt opposi

factor in a persistent drive toward
the perfection for which all of us I
human beings instinctively yearn.
more than sixty-five years ago. At
that time North Carolina was a
purely agricultural state and had
little need of any sort of govern
ment except county government.
Schools, such as we had, were sup
ported bv the counties or town
ships. The only roads that we
needed were county roads to en
able the people to get to the coun
ty seat. Like most agricultural
peoples we were wedded to the
laisscz faire philosophy of govern
ment, and did not expect the state
government to exercise any exten
sive powers. At that time, the ex
penditures of the government at
Raleigh were less by fay- than the
expenditures today of one of the
larger counties.
The sixty-five years that have
passed have revolutionized the life
of the state. We are still a great
agricultural people, but we have
become a great manufacturing
and commercial people as well.
The problems which industry and
commerce invariably bring have
come to us; and neither our coun
ty governments nor our state gov
ernment. which did very well in
the simple days of the Reconstruc
tion era, is of a type which is ca
llable of dealing with these prob
lems. Our life has ceased to be
local and has become state-wide
and even national in scope; and
we have necessarily thrown upon
the state government an increas
ing load of business with which it
has not been fitted to deal effi
ciently. Since the automobile has
come, a county system of roads
no longer suffice. We must have
a state system of highways. Coun
ty schools cannot meet the en
larged vision of a square deal for
every child of the state. The state
government has been forced to
take over the business of educa
tion. The old Iaissez faire philos
ophy, which made the function of
government that of a mere police
man, is outmoded. We are de
manding that the state conserve
our natural resources and regu
late industry and commerce so as
to secure the healthy growth and
development of the life of our
i lie* reasons tuat tut: statu j;uv
ernment under the present Con
stitution is not fitted tp deal with
present day problems are: (1)
The Legislature of the state un
der the present Constitution is
subjected to arbitrary limitations
with respect to the fundamental
matter of taxation which makes it
impossible to develop a modern
and just taxing system; (2) The
lack of responsibility and power
on the part of the Governor with
respect to legislation has produced
a lack of that unity and co-ordina
tion between the Legislative and
Executive branches of the govern
ment without which efficient gov
ernment is impossible; (3) The
simplicity of pur judicial system
has been destroyed by multiplica
tion of courts and legislative tam
peiing with our code of civil pro
cedure; and (4) The old system
of local government has broken
down when confronted with the
problems and temptations which
have come with this industrial age
into which we have moved. •
It is difficult to follow theoreti
cal reasoning;'but, if any man
doubts that there is something
wron^- with the government of
North Carolina, let him look in his
newspaper.'at the property adver-r
tised for sale for non-payment of
taxes. Let %jm consider that no
man can be'found who will at
tempt to justify the antiquated
taxing systgrn-under which we are
still living. And let him consider,
also, that there are 144 towns and
cities in North Carolina which
have defaulted on their bonds as
against only 546 in all the other
47 states of the Union; and that
01 out of our 100 counties are in
default as against only 282 in all
the other 47 states.
