‘Go through the hospital and ask

the Mind school and ask what is the

Then go out on the streets and bear

The Nation, in Its current issue, re
veals its inherent enmity toward pro
hibition It says it “has been slow to

the eighteenth amendments is inevit

having held the idea that goodness
should be legi.-lated into people, but

of a hypocrite in the White House on
this issue as were Mr. Coolidge and
Mr. Harding.”
But listen to this: "We believe that,
given an executive who deemed law
enforcement a pi mie duty, and a civil
service of the honesty and incorrup
tibility of the Germans before the war
and of the British at this hour, it
would be possible to secure an en

the trick." But The Nation finds that
“ to <lay the President keeps up the

misrepresented th? wet Wiskersham re

oblivious to growing corruption, grow

"There is no prospect that hia suc

But why not try enforcement for a

the meeting.
As basis for their belief that a tre
mendous amount of business will km
mediately follow indications of nor
mal trading, k was pointed out that
all stores have been forced to moke
purchases in line with minimum re
quirements. As a result, stocks have
leached the lowest level, In com*
parison. of course, wtth ths normal
amount of trade.
l*ds is because the purchasing pub

Answer to fraviovs Pan’s j

To the Editor:
We have had an opportunity to
visit mo«t of the schools in Vsnco
icoun’v We find to our surprise, that
the Henderson high school building
is one of the most, if not the most,
inadequate building in the county.
We learn that this building is forced
to house in the neighborhood of 350
pupils when it is really built to house
around 200 at the most. This seems
to us to be a deplorable condition,
and one that should be remedied.
We learn that there is no city
school system, but one system for
•both county and city. It appalls us
to learn that the property valuation
in Henderson is nearly five times
that in the remainder of the county.
The question then arises why do we,
the people of Henderson, not have as
good advantages in our schools as the
rural population of Vance county?
Personally, we see no reason. We
would like for some of the candidates
for office to explain some of these
things for us.
It is sheer injustice to the children
and young people of the town not to
allow them the best of educational
facilities. There is absolutely no rea
son why they should not be allowed
them. It will take only a casual ob- 1
server to note that the class rooms
at Henderson high school are crowd
ed at nearly all times. We admit that
a science building has been built re
cently, but the structure and nature
of this building is such that it is
referred to by the students as "the
barn." Even at this, it is in better
condition than the main building. We
wonder if the people of this city
> lealiae that the school does not so
much as have an assembly auditor
ium. There 1r no space in the Hen
derson high school that is ample
enough to accomodate one-half of its
pupils in a body in comfort. This has
caused the school to have a lack of
the necessary spirit among its en
rollment. The faculty has done its
bes'., but even with ail the extra work
that they do they cannot give the
students the attention that they need
because of the lack of proper equip
We wonder why so much of the
most valuable property of the coun
ty lies just outside the city limits.
7 his property should be taken in. Why
is it outside? If this property were
taken into the city limits and a city
school system instituted, the town of
Henderson could build the finest high
school building in the State. We
would like for a few of the politicians
to explain this to us aao.
