—lsaiah 59:2.
BANKS ARE REOPENING
It is a cheering piece of news that
comes every day or so about the re
opening of this or that bank that was
forced to close its doors two or three
months ago. The restoration of these
institutions to a plane of service in
their respective communities is more
a sign of the passing of the wave of
fear and hysteria that caused their
cloning than it is of the passing of
the depression Itself. The temporary
suspension of the banks was one of
the by-products of the depression, but
the cause of our troubles is not all go
ing to be removed by the easing of a
part of the effects.
Much misery and Inconvenience has
resulted from the hysteria of the year
end in North Carolina. We have
probably seen the worst of it, but not
the last of the effects of the destruc
tion that our people wrought upon
themselves. They have themselves
more than any one else to blame for
the thorny bed they made. But, ac
bad as it was and is. and If It just
bad to be anyhow, there Is the les
son It lias taught that can be turned
to advantage foa the future. We at
least know something of the depreda
tion that follows In the wake of such
conduct on the part of a great many
people.
Whether the banks can be restor
ed whole, or if there is to boa de
gree of loss depends upon the bash
upon which their operation b re
sumed and the attitude of their cu»t
driers uv'general. The be
which the process of liquidation has
been carried since the closing also is a
matter to be reckoned with as to the
difference now and in the days be
fore their collapse.
Above all else, however, b the con
sideration that the credit institution,
are again to be placed into service
and the certain wholesome effect upon
tho morale of the communities affect
ed. It is an evidence of returning
confidence, and when Americans have
regained their composure and are
again willing to trust their banks and
their fellowmen, we shall have made
a long Slide toward restoration of
normal conditions.
A MONTH OF IMPROVEMENT
Whatever else may be said about
business conditions, perhaps the moat
pronounced improvement that has
come In February, the year's shortest
month, is the changed attitude of the
public. While there is not an actual
increase l n business volume, there is
a more hopeful feeling on the part of
nearly every one. This trnngforvna
tion is attributed by the Guaranty
Trust Company of New York, ln its
monthly survey for February, bo the
greater confidence arising from the
“decisive measures taken by the gov
ernment to Strengthen the financial
situation, and. In part, to a natural
reaction from the overdrawn petei
mbm that resulted from the series of
false starts and subsequent disappoint
ments ln 1981.”
Visible affects are reported in the
wake of the initiation of the Recon
struction Finance Corporation and the'
Glass-Steagall bin. The country, how
ever, must guard-aga.) net an overdose
of optimism, Jn Ms expectations from
these measures. ▲ depression of such
magnitude as this one does not pass
overnight. The foreign situation is
•MU n cloud upon the horizon, aiyt
there will feg ££’ jNtouauaut jparttgd
THptfbVtment ln this country until that
stride can be shared by Europe and
the Far East. But, the Guaranty
company thinks the developments of
January and February do strengthen
the ouMook for reoovery. It says the
situation has reached the point where
psychological elements are of excep
tional importance.
A distinct Improvement in banking
oondttione has resulted with the
steady and rapid decline in bank su
spensions, and the review hazards the
opinion that such occurrences will
soon cease to be a major fleeter in
the business situation. Another hope
ful sign is the business way in which
Congress Is tackling the task of bal
ancing the national budget. There
is no disposition longer to permit
matters to slide in the hope thet bus
iness recovery will obviate the neces
sity for drastic revenue changes in
the Federal government. States and
municipalities must fall into line and
do the same thing, but that admoni
tion does not apply so forcibly In
North Carolina, where the State has al
ready acted, and where political sub
divisions -have alto moved in the same
direction.
Other conditions referred to in the
Guaranty company's review include
the virtual steadiness of car loadings,
with steel ingot output holding fairly
well, and with new construction show
ing fresh signs of life. Commodity
prices have not stiffened, but at the
same time have not weakened per
ceptibly. There was no particular
change in the rate of automobile pro
duction in February. Wage reduc
tions by railway employees and build
ing trade workers are relied upon
to help conditions.
There is still much to be wiitied for
in the way of general improvement,
though it is probable that the present
basis may afford a good foundation
vpon which future progress can be
bulk.
COTTON FOR COMMENCEMENT
Good for the Epsom high school
senior class! They have Shown them
selves to have a genuine appreciation
for the depression. In response to the
suggestion of the Federal ion of Home
Demonstration clubs of Franklin
county the seniors have decided to
use cotton for all costumes worn at
their annual commencement exercis
es this spring. '•
It Is an example that might profit- (
ably be followed by high schools
throughout the South. Since cotton is
so important a product of this sec
tion of the country why should not the
schools lend their cooperation to the
movement for a more widespread use
of the fabric? What the young peo
ple use for commencement will scarce
ly be a ripple on the surface in vol
ume, but It is the splendid example
that has bee n set that kj worthy of
emulation, if all the schools would
do this, the effect would be felt, cer
tainly in the influence it would have
in popularizing cotton cloth Cor other
occasions.
Really it is surprising how well cot
ton goods can be made to look when
property made up into clothing. If
the country would got back to the
point it would be considered an honor
and in good taste to wear cotton goods, 1
and just the opposite for those who
did not do so, the effect would then
be noticeable in the increased demand
for cotton manufactures.
The Epsom senior class is to be
commended for the step it has taken,
end all the other high schools would
do the South a good turn by emulating
that example.
KEEP IT UP, BOYS
An editorial ln the “Barks from the
Bulldogs’’ section of today's Dally Dis
patch discusses Henderson's need in
an airport. The article was evidently
Inspired by the sight of a brilliant red
plane flying overhead one day last
week as If hunting for a place t.
land. Other people also saw that
ehtp ( as they do many another from
time to time.
Every time a plane hovens overhead
with a desire to come down, it Is a
knock, knock, knock for hospitality,
to all of which our community turns
the cold shoulder and a deaf ear. The
fleet that we have no landing field here
is a word to the aerial visitors to
move on, that we cannot accommo
date them.
For several years this nerwwpaper
■has pleaded for some genalne effort
to establish bq airport In oor near this
oity. One or two efforts have been
launched that looked promising, but
they failed to produce results. Every
year that passes without such facili
ties as these being provided for qmi
t toiwn puts ns just that much further
behind the procession. We do not
I know how much the people of Hen
derson core as to whether or not their
community keeps abreast of progress,

perty owners as any one else that se

session we drop, the teas up-to-date

The present generation has made
one or two stabs at achieving this goal
and has failed. Perhaps the next
generation will be more Mart and
more determined. It may be a long
time to wfck to depend upon the praa
ont high shoot generation to provide
an airport for Hendeneon, but If It bos

We hope Henderson will not have to

THE GREAT “I-AM”
Charlotte News.
No, we are not referring at all to
Jehovah.
This has to do with the modern as
pirant for that all-tnchndve and all
powerful titles, none Other than for
mer Governor AJ Smith.
In hie recent Statement, he used a
prrase around which we have a no
tion the whole purpose and intent of
that politician was pivoted and which
to a large extent, accounts for making
any statement at all.
It was this:
"I am the leader of this party."
That signifies what really is lying
latent in the heart of this man, aspi
ration to that power which the phrase
suggests, leadership, command, last
and authoritative word.
He had seen the drtflt of things. He
was about to be totally ignored. For
three years he has bean in eclipse and
Governor Roosevelt has so far out
shone him in the interest of the peo
ple of New York and in the imagina
tions of the people of the whole coun
try that the thing woe getting nau
seous to Smith and he had to do some
thing about it.
Hence, he manufactured an occa
sion to remind the public of his status
and Invented a ruse by which he would
have excuse for setting forth his own
notion of his situation and to sug
gest to the Democratic party and to
the people of America as a whole that
when it oocnes to matters of any con
sequences within the range of that po
litical organization, he hod to be con
suited—"l am the leader of this party ”

"Flesh and Blobd Hath Not Revealed
, It Onto Thee” '
(Read Matthew 16:18-17).
We are frequently led by our confi
dence in human reasoning, to think
that faith can be built up by merely
rational means. This Is not the ease.
Faith oomee from a source beyond the
reach of our conscious minds; al
though, to be sure, our mind* are
able to direct the flow of spiritual re
velation into thu channels of intelli
gent thought. Like a river, religious
evperience comes dow n from hidden
springs up yonder in the mountains.
Only those who are wilHing to go back
into the hills and trace the river to
Its beginnings by prayer and medita
tion, can ever find for themselves the
pure and simple truths of deep reli
gion. Ta such the Master says,
‘‘Flesh and blood hath not revealed
this unto thee, but my Father which is
in heaven/’
PRAYER: O Thou who art revealed
to the sight of all whose eyes are
open, grant, we beseech Thee, that
we may be so cirar of vision that Thy
Presence shall be always known to
us; and grant especially, we pray,
through Thy Holy Spirit, that when
Christ manifests Himself to us. we
may know that He la indeed Thy Son.
Amen.

cording to figures released today by
the forestry division of the Depart
ment of Conservation and Develop
ment. This loss of over $1,000,000 more
than in any previous year for which
records are available and the acreage
burned over represents approximately
one-twelfth the total forest area in the
State.
The largest loss in any previous
year was in 1916, when 997,000 acres
were burned over with an estimated
loss’ of $3,460,000, the records show.
The next largest yearly loss from for
est fires was in 1928 when 721,220
acres were burned with a loss esti
/mated at $2,112,150.
"The forest fire records for 1931
show that the fire loss in unprotect
ed areas In couptles. that do not co
operate with the §jt&te in forest fire
protection, was Very much greater
than in the counties 1 that have pro
tection, wgf sery much greater .than
in the counties that have protection,”!
said State Forester J. S. Holmes. “Fofc
of the T. 483,630' 1 acres receiving pro
tection last gear, only 4.12 per cent of
308.317 burned, while of the 12,523,-
134 acres not protected, 1,411,778 acres
burned, or 11,27 per cent. This shows
tha tthe acreage burned was four
times greater ? »n the non-protected
acre# than in the protected, on the
basis of the total acreage In both
groups. Certainly this shows the value
of organized fire protection in forest
areas.”
The Philippines has made some
great strides economically primarily
because of free trade with America.
