PRIDE A PITFALL: Pride goeth
before a destruction, and a haughty
spirit before a tall.--Proverbs 16:18.
Financial (Hfficukies encountered
by the* North Carolina Anti-Saloon
League are but another re fleet ion of
Rhe changing tide of sentiment i n this
Slate, along with that over the coun
try a a a whole, toward the prohibi
tion question. While the fact was
fairly well known that the League's
Income was dwindling, friends of the
"cause were haidly prepared for the
blunt statement that the situation is
•o critical as to threaten the absolute
discontinuance of the work altogether
Tight money and the desperate
struggle on the part of most people to
snake a living for themselves un
doubtedly is a factor in the League's
troubles, but it questionable if that
tphase of it Is quite so largely reftectr
•ed as the growing unwillingness of
many former supporters of the work
<io continue to pay.
At the same time, it is recognized
that to give up the ship entirely would
mean virtual surrender. Were the
eighteenth amendment repealed com
pletely. the prohibition laws written
into the statutes of North Carolina,
or any other state for that matter,
would not be modified in the least by
that act. Nevertheless, if there should
be a radical change in t-he national
law, It would follow as a natural
course that pressure would be brought
to bear for modification or easing of
the restrictions at home.
For the prohibit ionLsts and the
liquor people alike there is signifi
cance In the turn events are taking
in the State organization. There
fr.ay be contributing factors other
.than changing sentiment and hard
times, but when the drys need money
for the smalt-scale operations of the
North Carolina league, it is indica
tiv# of a waning interest in the pro

Alarm that has gripped certain sec
tions of Congress as the result of the
-failure of the British budget to make
provision for debt payments to the,
United States may or may not be well
founded. From sources close to the
administration in Washington have
come assurances that no word or hint
'has been given the British government
tnal a further extension of the debt
moratorium may be expected. The
public, of course, is not. in on all the
inner workings of international rela
tionships, and there is, of course, a
possibility, though hardly a probabil
ity in this case, that an understand
ing of some sort has been reached.
Great Britain could pay a good deal
of her obligations to this country with
her indemnities from Germany, unless
these were repudiated or defaulted,
and reliance may be placed there tor
obtaining the funds, or at least a part
oi them, to be paid over to the Ame
rican govemmen. when the next in
stallment falls due in December.*
Whatever significance there may be.
in the omission of debt appropriations
in the British budget, and whatever
may be in the minds of high govern
ment officials as to debts, if there is
continued uneasiness here at home,
some one is going to be faced with the
neceartity of coming into the open
with a definite assurance to the pub
lic. It is certain that the temper of
the American people at this time is
not such as to countenance a further
moratorium, however beneficial it may
be or may not be. What la of more
importance for On recovery of all the
nations from their economic lHs is a
downward rertok m of the afmort ta
s.-rmountable tariff walls which most
of them have erected against each
neher. Get that rtratghtened out, and
debt obligations will be a much simp
ler matter.

Much depends on the hour of birth,
which fact is especially true of the
next four days. The general chara
cter of this day is independent and
domineering. Since there is a ten
dency to dig deep into mysterious
things, or perhaps to use various
means or uncommon channels to gain
your ends, a proper appreciation may
not be attained from associates and
there is danger of consequent neglect
from them. This will not necessarily
cause much worry, but you should
try to avoid this lack of apperciatlon
in order to receive the reward to
which you are entitled.

Raleigh, April 20. “The battle in
Congress at Washington is not ho
mueh one of balancing the budget
but of how to balance the budget,”
accordini to R. W. Henninger, exe
cutive secretary of the Governor's
Council on Unemployment and Relief,
who has been to the Captia) on sev
eral occasion lately and who is in
close contact with the situation there.
“There is one thing certain," Mr.
Henninger added, “and that is that
we must prepare ourselves to see a
cut in governmental expnditures and
we must realize now that some of
these cuts will effect seraices in our
counties now paid for at least in part
by Uncle Sam."
"The government is preparing to
pare its expenses and this will be
done all along the line. Where Fed
eral money is matched to State or
county funds, it is the belief in Wash
ington that such assistances will be
continued, especially for existing ser
vices; but new services by State or
county will probably not be matched
by an equal amount of Federal
money. The government will, it is be
lieved, continue to pay its part of
the cost of keeping farm agents and
home demonstration agents in our
counties, but may refuse to help with
cash in counties where such workers
are not now at work.”
Mr. Henninger said that the situa
tion in Washington would Indicate
the levy of taxes sufficient to obtain
the needed money to balance the
budget, and that there would prob
ably be a sales lax included.

crop is predicted for the mountain
area of North Carolina this fall by
H. R. Niswonger, extension horticul
turist at State College, w r ho returned
this week from a trip throughout the
apple growing terrtory. Heavy yields
for the past two seasons under un
favorable growing conditions is as
cribed by Mr, Niswonger as the main
reason for the small set of fruit buds.
“Growers in the Brushy Mountain
area and in Henderson county are
expecting only about 25 percent of a
crop," said Mr. Niswonger.
A leading orchardist in the ICdney

damaged thousands of dollars by the
