COLLUSION IS UNLIKELY Backing of two candidates for the Slate office of commissioner of labor by two Urge rival printing establish ments in the State Is denied by the candidates themselves. Os course, they’ would not be expected to admit that such a thing were true, even if it were, but the fact that the letting of the State pinning » no longer in the hands of the commissioner, but reals with the division of purchases and contracts, as th: Dispatch pointed out several days ago. would seem to be sufficient evidence to spike the rumor. Big printing concerns would not have much to gam oy putting money or any other kind of support behind men who had nothing to do with furnishing the State with supplies in which they deal. There was not much prospect of e collusion, but developments have appeared to be sufficient to allay fears of such a turn in the primary cam paign. RENTAL OF SCHOOL BOOKS Concern stirred up among the pub lishers of textbooks by the agitation of Revenue Commissioner A. J Max well in his cand‘dacy tor -governor is not surprising In the Dally Dis patch Raleigh correspondence yester day it was indicated that a large num ber of these concerns had representa tives in Raleigh and going about from place to place in the State trying tc work up seutlmint to offs* whatever of favorable impression may have been created by Maxwell's charges of excassivH coate and his promise that he would have the State rent bookt to the school children and at lowci prices. The idea is nova new one. It iv.» been worked successfully, we under stand, in some local communities even iu this State. Savings have beeu made to parents vho have to purchasi the books for their children. Bui there is an addii.onal advantage that would accrue from State rentals, and that is that there would not be such frequent changes in texts as under the system now in vogue. That in Itself would etammate a good deal o. the profiteering, if there be such, on the part of the publishers. With parents buying the books for their children yer after year, it has been found that many texts formerly in use were worthless because they lad been chaoarded. The ordinary layman finds it difficult to understand why so much of this should be necee sary. Mr. Maxwell may not be the next governor, but If he should be. and if he should inaugurate the rental system he proposes, it la fairly cer tain that there will be nothing like the frequent changes in texts that are ex perienced now end which are forced upon both parents and children, and tbe teaching profession as well WbOther Mr. Maxwell Is the man or •ome other, whoever the next gover nor may be, he could apppropriate i portion of bis time to great advantage and to a great saving for the peoph of the State If he would look into the school book situation, and possibly with a view to having the Stale ren the books to the children from year to year. A considerable saving could* be brought about, especially If aome of the numerous and frequeat changes were eliminated. I MIIJTABY-MINDED Oompktion of the round of Fedo ra! Inspections of vmxtoue military ea tabttahmeate located In this city ad mits of comment again on the mili tary-mindedneos of the community. It is probably true that nowhere else in North Carolina are there as many citizen soldiers of one department or another In a town the size of Hender son or smaller os we have here. The city has had its militia units for scores of years, and would feel lost without them. Only once, and that a moot regret table occasion, has it ever been neces sary to being the military into service to preserve order here at home Presence of these units in this city un doubtedly has its pacifying effect in a way, but that la only a part of the rea son and the valu? of the branches of the defense organization. It is a proud commentary upon patriotic sen timentalities that exist among our | people, and marks them as being men wilting always and ready at a mo ment's notice to take up arms in de fense of American liberties. As long as there is a halo around military achievenemts in this country, that will be so. There are mtn in these units in Henderson today whose fathers before them gave their time and energies to the service There are likewise men in the* military- connection here now whose sons after them will follow in their stepps. Ours Is a military-mind ed citizenship, and that is a thing t< be proud of. But there is something beyond the mere existence cf these units that re flects great credil. They are not sat isfied with merely maintaining their relationship with State and national departments, but work hard always to excel in the science, and in marked degree they have succeeded. The highest rating toward perfection has not been hand-.-d out right and left; it has to be ear.ied. And companies here have held that distinction until It was no longer acoorded anywhere. High officials and well disciplined enlisted men aie members of these local military organizations. They are efficient and highly trained. Were they pressed into duty in an emer gency, whether at home or abroad, they would gave worthy account of themselves mow as they (have in the past. Their history is a glorious heri tage and their future is assured. They reflect Wgh honor upon tlbeir own community, and that citizenship In turn is fully apppreciative of them. A COMMUNITY SERVICE More power to the arm of thcee loyal citizens who ar- devoting their time and energies, as well as their personal financial support, to the movement to reopen the First National Bank. The fact that they are brimful of optimism over tnc prospects for tbe complete success of the undertaking does not, however, remove or limit the responsibility ol stockholders and de positors. each ar.d every one of tihrtfc. to do their utmost byway -of coope rating. In other localities wbere bonks have closed and latee were reopened, it be came necessary for committees to can vass depositors, as well as stockhold ers, in order to secure their coopera tion. Information is that approxii motely 90 percent of the four thou sand depositors in the First National who are directly concerned with the icopening plan have voluntarily and without pressure come forward with their signed endorsement of the pro posal. That mean? that something like 800 have yet to give their consent, and this 800 owe it to themselves and to their community to lose no further time in joining in on the undertaking. It cannot succeed without them, and, whether they realize it or not, they are contributing their part to delay ing the restoration of this much need ed financial institution to the business life of Henderson and Vanoe county Payment in full at once of all de posits of S2O or leas and of ten per cent of all other deposits would release about seventy to eighty thousand dol lars into the arteries of trade in Hen dereon at a time when It ie needed as never before. The community fa§ not ro large but that eighty thousand dol lars distributed among several thou sand people would be felt mightily in these days. The depositors have everything to gain and nothing to lose by accepting the reorganization plan in Meu of a Federal liquidation. Hard ly more tha n one bank in twenty has made or could make a proposition as generous as has been offered to the people who have money tied up in the Fir*, National Bank. The fact that such a plan is possible here Is both an Indication of the good condition of the bank at the time it closed and an advantageous opportunity for those concerned. Stockholders should not lose sight of the fact that the plan offered to thezn is far better than a Federal liquidation. Whereae they are now I asked to put up half of «be amount of their Mock, with tbe virtual certainty HENDERSON, IN. C„) DAILY BEPATCH TfrfjftSlJftY, M A Y 5, 1982 7* that they will not be called upon tor any more later, and would rtaad a good chance of having M as an invest ment in the course of a few years, *t would be just the opposite If they re fused bo come in on the present plan and forced a Federal liquidation, in which event they would be required to put up money equal to the entire amount of their stock held at the time the bank closed. In other words, wfcttt they are now asked to do Is just twice as much to their benefit as a forced liquidation would be. There is urgent need that the re organisation plan be consummated ait tbe earliest possible time. It would help business in Hendereon hi an ef fective and noticeable manner and in the midst of the won* economic de pression in a generation and at a time when the dull summer season ie just approaching. We repeat, those Who can lend this cooperation would be doing themselves and their com munity a genuine service by giving this cooperation immediately and without any further delay. To fail to do that wiil mean putting a stumb ling block in the way of community progress. TODAY TODAY’S ANNIVERSARIES. 1809—Frederick A. P.

By Central Press • New York, May s—Then there are those unimportant Utile dramas which go on outside the blare and gtere of tbe Rfctfto—outside the columnist's proper laboratory, too. I suppose The other day an art school near Tompkins square found It necessary, times being wlhalt they are, to move into cheaper quarters ■ from the floor of the ancient church which it occupied. The janitor, long loyal, was give* his pick of the plaster and clay models fashioned by students over a period of years. A mild and perhaps inartistic fellow, he browsed among the statuary and finally settled upon a huge and men acing gargoyle with folded wings, cer tainly the mo* forbidding work ever turned out by the school. Quite pos sibly he had in mind his wife’s rather militant puritan views when he carted his prize u,p to the garret he occupies. But Che plaster figment caused a rum pais in his house. “That’s an evil thing!” his wife cried. "A contrivance of someone wKh the devil in ’em!” 3he refused to have the hind in her domicile. Sadly, hubby carted It out'. Next day he was amazed to discover a large, undraped model of a female torse on the mantel. ‘That’s art!” his wife informed him archly. “It was like you to bring something indecent into the houee.” Or take the case of the former ope ratic star who has fallen upon lean days. The other night her husband, long jobless as she is, triumphantly brought home to dinner a vaudeville executive of some power. There was little food in tn<- house, but the oc casion warranted expenditure of what ever remaining pennies there were. A job for the wife might result. After dinner, at which the vaudeville man seemed to mellow over his glass of cheap wine, the trio repaired ‘to the humble living room —where a piano, which would have to be sold on the morrow, remained. Nervously, the wife sat down to play and sing. As her fingers hovered above the keyboard a pet parrot in a nearby cage began to run his gamut of word*. He was an exceptionally good talker and in addition appeared to ‘take to” the showman Immediately. The latter, much interested, spent the reat of the evening toying with the bird and ll*ening, delighted, to its re port oir.
