By Alfred Thqm
Bloy out wild bells to the wild sky,
TV flying cloud, the froety hyht;
The year Is dying In the night;
Kin* out wild bells and let him die.
Ring out the old. ring In the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that saps the noted.
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor.
Ring In redress to all mankind.
Ring out a slowly dying cause.
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring In the nobler modes of Use.
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
Ring out the want, the care, the sin.
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out. ring out my mournful
rhymes
Rut ring the fuller minstrel in.
Ring out false pride In place of bleed.
The civic slander and the spite;
King in the truth of love and right
Ring In the common love of God.
Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring In the thousand yearn of peace..
Ring in the valiant man and free.
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that la to be.

I tibllc schools, white and colored,
in city and county, will resume op
, ©rations next Monday after a two
weeks holiday for the Christmas and
[ New Year season. They will run
. straight through until the close of the
: term, whicn will bo probably the first

p schools ending their session at about
the same time, siuce the city term
1 thl- year has been reduced to eight
months from nine which has been .
* the rule for many years.
School authorities report that the I
‘ fall term was one of the best the i
* schools have ever experienced. There \
“ has been apparently a closer appli-:
cation to duty by both pupils and
teachers. The depression is bearing
j down upon ull alike, it appears, and
efforts have been concentrated on the j
lash in hand to make the most of
it. An attempt is being made to turn
nit ius much work in the eight months
in the city schools as has been done
| heretofore in nine months.
There will be variations of n few
’ j days in the dates for the commcnce
l meats throughout the county, so as

ance is looked for on the opening day. j
■ Budget Slash Is Seen As
r Good Thing For Carolina
i < Continued from Page One.)
, inoc it makes an extra session of the
. general assembly unnecessaiy and
thus insures all classes against any
r increase in taxes at least until 1333
ind also insures that there will be no
! leficit to be funded later >n.
j Guile a number of people both here
i md over the State generally have not
| been able to understand why the r©-
iuetlon in Stale appropriations was
* tecessnry. A good many here, espe
"iully Stale employes, have been
darning Governor Gardner and llei.ry
Burke, assistant director of the,
Budget Bureau lor th© cot. Other
have blamed Ihe l’*Jl •»» •» <’ ns: cut
1 My. The real eaure. ho\vo--r Ij s been
■ Old Man Depression, who has cut
down incomes and the profits from
i normal business activities to the point
. where the tuxes levied l>> the genera! (
? assembly are goin gin fall at least ;
* $3,500,000 short of the amount c.sti- j
nated seven or eight months ago.
? It is a fact- of course, that the 1931
- j general assembly appropriated a total
i j >f 29,251.764 to the public sehnols.
j -ttnto departments ami institutions 1
j and then enacted a Revenue Bill that
would bring in only about $27,013,761
according to estimates made at the!
j lime it was passed, making a differ- \
cnee of about $2.000.(K*0. But that i
•ould have been handled unite easily
r by tire Budget Bureau in its budgcl
iry control of funds, had that been
f the only difference. However, esti
-1 mates made now' indicate that the
' Revenue Act passed by the last gen
s -ral assembly will probably yield only
* ibout $23,513,875 or some $3,500,000
’ess than was estimated some eight
f months ago.
This shrinkage of $3,500,000 is ©x-
I peeled to take place largely in three
s general divisions —income taxes, li- j
? cense taxes and from the 15 cents ad
valorem levy on property, according
'o the Budget Bureau. Original esti
mates were that the income taax.
» which was increased from 20 to 74
' per cent thb year over last year,
would yield $9,022,110 instead of the
- ite.OOO.OOO it yielded last year. But re
’ vised estimates indicate a slump of
II about $1,800,00 In the income tax re
e ceipts, with an expected revenue of
- only about $7,222,000 instead of $9.-
nOO.OOO. A slump of nbout $1,000,000
in the receipts from the license taxes
- are also expected, reducing the re
!. veuue from that source from $3,255,-
U 600 to about $2,252,600.

Welcome To New Year Here j
Is Quietest In Many Years
1932 Arrives Swimming in D ownpour of Rain; Some
Fireworks Exploded and Few Bells Are Rung, But
Not a Whistle Was He ard and No Fire Alarms
i The New Year 1932 got probably the
quietest welcome of any in recent
years in this city last night. The in
fant segment of lime came in swim
ming in a downpour of rain, the first
lime in a long while that a steady rain
has been falling as a new year has
been ushered in.
There was little celebration and lit
tle noise-making. Some fireworks
j were exploded, and a few bells were
rung. There was some tooting of auto
mobile horns and a little yelling by
: those who braved the cold rain to
; watch out the old year, but hardly a
I whistle was sounded and most people
i were bi bed and asleep as the years
j changed.
I There was no way of checking on
i private parties that were held, but
I there was no public celebration of
any sort.

? But there was abundant glee and
t jubilation at the passing of a year
that has been one of the worst, in a
business way, that this sections haß
- felt perhaps in a generation. The New
t Year came In with hopes higher and
i hearts more cheerful for a turn in the
* tide in 1932. and nearly every one is
facing the year in that attitude.
A full holiday was observed here to
* day by the banks, the post office and
the railroad freight offices. There was
- no rural or city deliverey of mails,
f and no service at the post office ex
) cept that the stamp and general de
i livery windows were open from 10 to
