THE NEW TAX BILL levied in the new revenue bill r.cw before the Senate are offerd to the country- by the finance committee w rth a -tort of apology , and with an urgent appeal tor cooperation. In other wortfc. burmeso and the public are a»ked to swallow the bitter dose as a patriotic duty, and in that spirit the measure will be accepted by those able to do so. A two-year limitation is placed on the new levies, lliat Is. they will be in effect until June 30. 1934, and at that time automatically expire unless re newed by later legislation. It is pre sumed that theie will have been a sufficient improvement in economic conditions by that time to permit a change. Regardless, however, of limitations jn the bill, there are only two ways whereby the country can be relieved ultimately of this extra tax burden. One is that there will be sufficient im provement that the old taxes will pro duce enough revenue to meet expendi tures. The other is that government costs shall be reduced to the point that less money will be required to carry on public business. The .-*peed with which recovery re turns is more or less in the lap of the gods It may be soon or it may be years But whether it is early or late, there ought to be a sharp cur tailment in governmental expendi tures. No matter how prosperous the country may come to be, there is no juttUficatkm sot such enormous out lays of public money as have been made in the last eight to ten years. The government, like many private businesses ha> delayed retrenchment until the old cow is pretty nearly milk ed dry. and. even with the return of normal tames, a lot of recuperating will be nec«,;«ry in order to get back upon the safe and sound basis of other years Every indication now is that the new bill will be em,cied into law The higher taxes will be levied and col lected. and will be continued until there is an improvement in business or a very material reduction in ex penses. The country may as well make up its mind to that effect now. A CHALLENGE The offer of the 61 members of the facuHy of the Henderson city schools to help men the cost of an extra month in order s o operate the schools cn a nine months basis is a clear-cut challenge to :iv* community. The past year, for the first time in a couple of decades or more, the schools have been foiced to cut to eight months. Teachers realize, as no one else does, the handicap that is forced upon the pupil when he is compelled so cut down fiom nine months to eight. In the broad span of eleven years in the avetage modern school ayatem it meanr the loss of more than B full year. * Not only are tne teachers willing to work the ninth month for a salary from ten to twenty percent than the regular scale, but are ready to go still further and from their own pockets pay the coot of Incidental ex penses. Including Janitor services and tights and wager. More than that could hardly be expeated of them, es pecially In view of the teat that most of them are not. even permanent resi dents of Henderson. Their interest in the welfare of the community and of the school children U evident, how- ever, by the voluntary offer they have made. The cost of the extra month, after allowing for these deductions, will be a little more then SB,OOO. It would amount to an increased school tax of between six and seven cents on the hundred dollars valuation of property ir Henderson township, and will be a good investment when made. Through the years when great for ward Strides have been made In equip ment. Henderson has not provided a high school of adequate proportions for the training of its young people. The result is that, we have allowed our school faculties to bag behind, and there is a very real danger of our high school losing Its rating and its recognition with institutions of higher learning. Restoration of the ninth month will not bring us up to the point where we should stand, but ll will be a step in Chat direction. Good schools in a community are one of the greatest inducements that can be held out to new-comers to in duce them to move into a city or town. On the other hand, when these facilities are far below the standard, the prospective settler hesi tates about casting his lot with us. To fail to restore our schools to the full term would tend to make per manent the lapse we have permitted in one of Che most important institu tions in the city. The greatest asset of any people is their children. When they are pi-operly trained, they are in position to make progress and to build upon what the present generation has done When they are lacking in that train ing. they are handicapped to just i hat extent. Ar.d Henderson will lay this hardship upon the next genera tion if it resolves as a permanent policy to restrict its school term to c'ght months. Action of Che teachers should set us all to thinking They have hurled a challenge to us. Surely shall not fail in this crucial time to meet that challenge. TAKING 1 HEIR LOSSES Conscious of lhe obligations they owe to the community they serve, the newspapers of America have been carrying ou during these terrific times to the utmost of their ability. And let no one suppose for a moment that they have not been, sweating blood along with aLI other lines of business, and many of them have been having rougher sledding than most r.ther branches of activity. It must be said, too, that there has been little noticeable curtailment of service to the public. News coverage has been kepi upon a high standard, and every point has been strained to maintain the speed in obtaining and delivering news that the papers and the public became accustomed to v-hen money was available for these services. News costs, moreover, have not been shaved down. Cuts have been necessary but they have been made elsewhere. Help has been re duced, and that necessitates a doub l.ng up of duties and responsibilities. In addition to that, salary curtail rnen/ts have become an absolute ne cessity even for those left in the or ganization*. But they have carried on in an effort to discharge a public 11 usit. Newspapers ar? at a disadvantage in these times that must be met by few other business activities. A paper fiat ordinarily rims eight or twelve or sixtee n pages. and some more than that, is put to just as much expense to produce a daily issue when theie is not a dollars worth of business car ried in the columns as it is when the page limit is reached and the paper is bulging with good revenue-producing space. That is something that is usu ally overlooked. While advertising has fallen off tre mendously, circulation has held up much belter. That means that the public is slow to derprive itself of Its only opportunity to keep abreast of what is going on in the world, and that It continues to demand and to read its daily paper. Unfortunately circulation means nothing to a news paper in the way of meeting its ope rating costs, other than the mainten ance of the circulation alone, and oft entimes not even that. The papers are carrying on to the be**, of their ability, and the wonder is that nearly all of them have, by some means, been able to continue. But even they will n ot be able to stand up indefinitely under the terrific drain to which they are being subjected. Blahop at Duke. Durham. May 12. —Bishop Frederick B. Fisher, one of the outstanding leaders In the Methodist Episcopal church, now pastor of First Method ist church. Ann Arbor, Mich.. Just off the University of Michigan campus, will speak at Duke univer sity on Sunday and Monday. To Teach During Summer. D&vtdson. May 12.—Dr. Price H. Gfynn, Jr., of the Department of Edu cation of Davidson College has ac cepted an invitation to teach in the Presbyterian Summer Training School, which is held at Wooster. Ohio, during the first two weeks of August. HENDERSON, (N. C.J DAILY DISPATCH THURSDAY, M AY 12, 1932 T By Central Press New York. May 12—Parades will always remain rom ebbing of a my stery to me. No one seems to en joy them much, except perhaps small boys and strap ping blackamoors twirling gold bal led swagger sticks. If you want to see faces fallen like reflections in Coney Island comic mirrors, observe Fifth avenue merchants whllle an official procession is in process of passing their doors- and congealing business thereby. Or take a squint at my own none too prepossessing visage while I'm in the act of hitting the parade line in an effort to get crosstown. ENIGMA NO. 2 Another mystery is the anti-prohi bition attitude of the average speak easy bartender. All of that jovial tribe seems to want legal beer in to morrow when a revision of the law would throw most of them out of work "SHINE. MISTER?” When the yellow light of 7 a. m plants down across Union Square, the bootblacks take their places. Some of them arc youngsters, but there are veterans of t he profeaaion. with hoard locks or fierce black muetaohios. These are not relics of better times forced into menial tasks. They are. tor the most part, life-long members of the shoe-shining guild. For a col umnist not overcome by his own dig nity and the importance of his nightly stool in the high jinks emporiums, the shine boys are revelatory. Predominating in the profession, my icsearches indicate, are Arabs and Portuguese, although representatives of every race, including the good old melting-pot American can be spotted. If you imagine they ate as a class, burdened with an inferiority complex from their labois, you are wrong. There are good polishers and bad. The proficient practitioners, with a following of regular customers, have little respect for. or traffic with, the duds. Over locations in the pedes trian streams through the square tierce competitive wars are waged. One dour Arab, with rackety-rax con nections. summoned a pair of his thug gish friends an cleared out all the burnishei-s in a radius of two hundred yards. Then there is the kindly gentleman who used to be located on the north wrt comer of the square. He qrould lecture me on the caroleesnesses of his colleagues, pointing out* the emp tiness of mere snap and fury in the application of the polishing rag. WINDFALL No inquiry into shoe-shinery would be completed without mention of my friend. Joe. who used to own half interest In a stand at "Hurd avenue and 42nd itreet Joe was a more than ordinarily conscientious burnisher and might have gone far —If he had not been swept into higher (or lower) etratas by sheer luck. He won SB,OOO in a foreign sweep stakes, on an investment of 50 cqass. and sold his share in the stand. "I’m gonna do two things with that dough." he told me. the morning for tune smiled. "Buy my mudder a operation and get me dogs shined in every joint between here and de Hud son!” IN THE SHOWSHOPS More than once I've paused to point out the apparent connection be tween apparent physioal blemishes and smavihmg success... At the moment Donald Meek, the ittage and screen mime, pops Into my head; wonder whether his rather spectacular bald ness didn't dramatize his homely pos turing and bait the big pay-checks?.. Personal feeding: that Warren Wil liam has never had the cinema chance has talents deserve.. .Jack Oakie is the only comic I can think of who has clicked in semi straight roles; and the only one who seems to ricochet up and down so dizzily in the popular favor. When radium was discovered no one knew that ti would prove useful in hospitals. The work of its dis coverers, Professor and Madame Curie was one of pure science only. fiokw Numskull / //VT*c> NOAH * How MANY Rounds o«= ammunit/on Dobs it to MAKE A WAR.
