TIME TO QUALIFY Now and dui:ng the next three week* is the time to qualify for vot ing in the primary of uext June 4 for IhobC who have not already done so Such meagre reports as have been re ceived ftom last Saturdays registra tion, the first clay the book* were open, indicate only a tew name*, were added to the luds Nc new registration is necejoary. whim means that most vot ers are already qualified, unless it is necessary for them to transfer due to a change of rew dence. Pressure of economic conditions and the inclination of the public to look to governments for relief from these conditions has created added interest in this year's selection of candidates. This is true of those who will serve in the legislature and in local county offices. In both instances further economies are demanded by tax-pay ers. and for that reason they will be interested in siring to It that men i of their choice are installed in the < places of responsibility concerned with , such matters. . Not only is a heavy vote likely in , the primary, but there are many can- ( didate:, in the field for the various offices, with s'rong Indications that the lists are by no means closed yet. Candidates have several more weeks yet in which to file, as have the 1 individual voters In which to qualify. 1 but. those voters who Intend to take 1 part in the election should not wait until the last mlrute to get themselves 1 in line. 1 HEFLIN'S FAREWELL Tom Heflin’s valedictory in the United States was as dramatic as it rpparently was ro*l. and. in the light of the Senates overwhelming vote against him. hl-i five-hour speech in defense of hts claim to a seat in that body would seem to be his last ap pearance there The expression of chagrin and surprise that wreathed his countenance as the voto piled up against him was one of the few in stances where he showed genuine evi dence© of defea.. He is a fighter. If anything, and the ohanees are his native state of Alabama and the coun try at large have not yet heard the last of Heflin. It will be no surprise if he launch es a campaign immediately to stage a comeback against Senator Black In this year's Alabama primaries. But it won't succeed any more than the fight he has Just lost The Senate's refusal to seat the party bolter of 1923 will be the signal for his adher ent© to begin to fall away and his organization will start to crumble from now on. Heflin has shot his bolt and la probably done for in Alabama poli tic®. though stranger things have hap pened than would be his eventual re turn to power. Other men in other ■tatea have been repudiated, only to work their way back to the top of the ladder at. the healing process of time gets in Its work. But Tom Heflin proved to be his own worst enemy. He encompassed hia own undoing. Just as Senator Slm mnma did in North Carolina It was a right and the privilege of every citizen to have and to express his own pre ference for a presidential candidate in 193 ft, as In any other year. But when the party has made Re decision in a fashion so overwhelming as the Dem ocrats did four years ago, noMtAag was to be gained by any man running for office to fly In the face of such over whelming sentiment. It put bOtb Btffi mons and Heflin without the pale of party regularity, and served no good purpose for them or for others. After the die had been cast by the conven tion. nothing was to be gained in mak ing further resistance. Both men would have been renominated and re elected, in all likelihood, had Obey de sisted from the campaign they waged They oouid have kept quiet, without the sluftUfying of conscience. and would have loot nothing of the reaped they hoped to gain by the course they did pursue. Heflin walked out of the Senate the other day after having enjoyed for the last time the privileges extended to Hun. The odds are decidedly against him. No more will the hail® of the Senate ring w.th his denunciations of the pope, et cetera. And the country will be none the woree for it. HUEY DIDN'T WAIT LONG Huey Long didn't wait long to grab ( the whole show when he got to the United State© Sennte. He arrived there along back in January from his home State of Louisiana, where he has been accustomed to having his own way so many years that it were almost as the whole place belonged to him. Now he is losing no time in making himself perfectly at home in his new ,-uiTOundings in the staid, conserva tive Souate. Hue) jumps on Senator Joe Robin yon and leaders of his party and gives them a b g piece of his mind to how they arc running things and how things ought to be run. Experi ence counts for nothing with Huey; ne's determined to show the older toys a thing or two. His latest sortie is a proposal of Senator Norris, the insurgent Repub lican fiom Nebraska, as the Democrat ic candidate fer President in this K<»od year 1932 At first he thought A1 Smith. Joe Robinson and Jim Gar ner were the timber from which the choice ahould b*» made. Now. how ever. since he has had three months or more to look them over, he doesn’t think so much of them, and has chang ed his mind. Uncle George Norris looks better to Huey, and he breaks through the traces and stuna the Sen ate by speaking his mind. Guess it must have been quite a shock to Rob inson and Garner to have been given the gait so abruptly, and they won’t tleep any more at night for a good while worrying over the defection of this stalwart from the Creole country. Senator Longs tactics impress one a.; being a bid for further national notoriety. It can hardly amount to mudh more than that. For the pres ent at least, it would seem that the chief function of the Louisranan in the Senate will be to furnish it with plenty of amusement, which to be sure, is not without Its value in these days of stress and bewilderment. THE VERDICT IN HONOLULU While many were dubious of an ac quittal in the so-caUed "honor slay ing" trial In Honolulu, few were pre pared for the convictions brought In late la«t Friday by the jury of mixed tacial ancestry. Nearly every one, at hast in this country, had expected a icpeless deadlock or an acquittal, and most people had hoped for an acquittal. There is no queAiou as to the fact ihat a murder was committed. The rlaying was admitted. But the shrewd Darrow sought rtfuge and justifica tion in the unwritten law that is al most all-sufficient in any state in America. Lieutenant Massie. quite conceivably, was Irrational as he con fronted the brute who admitted as sault upon hL wife. What man wouldn’t be under like circumstances? Yet the law does not countenance killing even with such provocation. So far as the written law goes, the jury’s verdict was Justified. In America, there would doubtless hove been an acquittal within an hour after the jury got the oaee. Most of us would have taken that view, as moat of us did in this truftance. The mob is without justification In a lyn ching. and its cct is not to be con doned. But there is a fine point of difference between the doings of a mob and the actions of an Individual v hose woman kin has been outraged. The individual kids in defense of his home, whereas the mob In the aggre gate lacks that justification. Few men with the high sense of honor that burns in the breasts of Americans would have acted differently from what Lieutenant. Massey did In the environment in which he found him self, even though he himaelf arranged the setting. In Hawaii civilization has not come as far among tho natives as with con tinentals. The men who assaulted the naval officer s wife were lacking in the respect for woman which Is common here. This was not tibe first nor even the last instance of the kind in the Inlands. If the law has been Ineffective, sterner measure* have been effective in Impressing that fact upon the natives, the eoda of Justice will have been met In the freeing of i the naval lieutenant, hie mother-ill- Jaw sod the two enlisted men whoj HENDERSON, <N. C.,) DAILY M3PATCH' MONDAY MAY 2,1982 have been convicted of the slaying of the brute who outraged an innocent woman. PITY POOR RALEIGH Pky poor Raleigh, whose people are now struggling along with a double time arrangement. The dty com missioners ordered daylight savings effective yesterday through the sum mer months, whereas Governor Gard ner announced that all State offices and business would continue to be conducted, as usual, Oq standard time. As if poor business, hard times and the torrid weather of the summer were not enough to have to contend wKh, this added affliction is plied upon the burdened shoulders of the populace. Time is merely a matter of meas uring off daylight and darkness, and the snatching of an hour from early morning and tacking It on to the lalte afternoon is s preference, after all. The difference is scarcely noticed when the practice is universal, but where half a community works on one time basis and the other half on a different one, the confusion and nuisance of the arrangement is easy to comprehend. So far as our information goes, Ra leigh is the only place in North Caro lina where daylight time is recog nized. The new arrangement will put the capital city in tune with New York and several other large cities, but quite out of alignment with State offices withi n her own borders and all out of joint with all the city's neighbors everywhere else in the State. Imagine how pleasant it will be for the Raleigh citizen to have to turn his watch back an hour every time he goes to Durham, or Hender son or Goldsboro or anywhere else in the vicinity, end then have to turn it up an hour o« returning home. It is a sweet experience for those who like it, and if Raleigh demands it, as Its people have, else the commission ers would not have ordered it, they are quite welcome to the novelty. We have never thought much of the daylight savings - idea, but if it is to be observed anywhere It ought to be effective everywhere through out the country, or at least throughout the whole State. Confusion would be completely removed if the system were universal all over the nation, and cer tainly would ba less if applicable to the whole State instead of one or a few towns and cities.

Candidates Talk At Mass Meet In Franklin County Louisburg, May 2.—Candidates, as piring to every elective public office of Franklin county, were heard here Saturday by a most enthusiastic gathering of citizens throughout the county together with many visitors. Great harmony seemed to reign as tne assembly unanimously voted to petition the County Commissioners to postpone tax sales until November Ist, and to add to the tax relief platform the popular election of the County Superintendent of Schools where any tav is levied for the operation of such schools and to establish a county wide school tax rate except for debt service. Strick economy, fever office hold ers, and more local self-governing powers was the prevailing theme of nearly every candidate's speech as they pledged proficient and economi cal service towards “Cutting the cost of government and distributing it according to ability to pay.” Each; of the fourteen plants of the Tax Relief Platform, as adopted April' 16th was directly supported by one or more of the speakers, and even greater sup port was accorded the platform as the various candidates elaborated up on their proposals.
