AFTER THESE YEARS. After serving eleven years as sec retary' of the treasury and using his Influence toward boosting tariff rates in this country. Andrew W. Mellon waits until he gets to London as the American ambassador to use his in fluence in favor of an international economic conference. Back here in America Democrats in Congress have tried for months to persuade the Re publican administration of Herbert Hoover to take the initiative in call ing such a conference, and always with the same result, namely, that a deaf ear was turned to the propo6al9. Even though Mr. Mellon had to go to London tn order to make up his mind, it is a step in the right direc tion just the same. After these years of suffering and declining trade and commerce not only for the United States, but for most of the world. Mr. Mellon sees the light, which means that the Hoover administration has also seen the light. Upon this Republican group, more than anywhere else, rests the blame and the responsibility for the tariff barriers that have shut most nations off from one another In trade inter course; certainly has shut this coun try off from the rest of them We put our duties up so high the others could not pay them and then they retaliat ed. as was perfectly natural, and in keeping with appeals and warnings that were sent here by nearly two score foreign governments while the Hawley-Smott tariff was tn prepar tion in 1929 Big business, not satis fied with unprecedented profits and volumes, was hellbent on getting still more and started out after it. But. as is common with the greed-soaked human they los’ what they already had instead of getting more. The tragic thing about it, however, is that Innocent people were likewise made to suffer. With the situation growing more and more serious, gentlemen whose hands are red with the blood of this monstrosity are at this late day. and after these years of suffering and declining markets, making a move toward recuperating the losses inflicted upon the nation. It would be suicide for the United States now to lower the bars It has erected unless other nations coopl crated by doing the same thing. An international conference Is. therefore, the only proper procedure. Mr. Mel lon Is on the right track at last And the conference cannot be held too soon for the good of all nations. OTHERS 7 VIEWS TO THE VOTERS OF VANCE COUNTY. To th« Editor: A few words in behalf of Mr. Crab tree for sheriff. I hear that Mr. Ham let has been working for Vance coun ty for twelve to fifteen yearn at a great salary. If this be true he should from the thousands of dollars made laid up a fist of cash. I hear that Mr. Crabtree is a very poor boy and working for a small salary. I hear that there are thousands of letters b*ing sent out to the voters taking money to advertise. Mr. Crabtree is not financially able to send out these letters so. Gentlemen and Ladles, let's put Mr. Crabtree In office for a while anyway.

"The canoe is by the lea rati. There's a ladder. S'Tam!” I threw open a door. It was the radio operating compartment. There crouched Tlno. his face drawn with fright. "Whut the devil!"

Larry was waiting on deck to help us. “Wc can leave him here.” 1 sug gested. "We cannot:' Larry barked. "We ll throw him overboard! We want this guy" We shouted for Pinga to stand by to pull Livingston from the water. “Won't this be jolly! I get a bath,” Livingston said. "Yeah!” Larry snarled as w# slid HENDERSON, (N. C.j DAILY DISPATCH THURSDAY' JUNE 2, 1932 ' NO CHANGE FOR PLUNGERS Also If I must be perfectly frank about -the shifts In the customs of ibis village, an epidemic of stok machines has set 1n...1 remember not many months ago I remarked the almost total absence of these mechanical nlckef-and-dlme , gTabbqra . In (he meantime they have grown legion... In nearly every neighborhood the slots are to be found In all-night lunch rooms, dehcateasene and speakeasies.. I am told that when the drink busi net* pick up they will decrease. Remembered from the conversation of one of the town s beat news editors: "It Is an extraordinary thing that the Lindbergh case, probably the big gest news story in th e history of mod ern journalism, dhouid have remained the most obscure major break, too, and the most confusing to reporters. Undoubtedly the full and true story of what happened and why will never be known"...

Maxwell Bodenheim may be found here, expatiating his newest theory about the esthetic delights to be had from tickling the soles of the feet.. .There are newspaper toilers here. too. and shOTlstozy writers whose names flicker across the covers of a him over feet first "Jump for It!" Tom shouted. He had looked toward the approaching boat and saw we weren't going to have time to go down the ladder. The three of us hit the water al most simultaneously. Livingston had K-en hauled in. and we were helped over the side. Just as our paddles began swinging, we heard the hump of the whale boat on the other side of the schooner. The moon was up now, throwing a brilliant band of silver tight, and as we headed east to clear the point of Oomoa, the canoe was cutting di rectly along this glittering ribbon. Hardly had we rounded the pro tecting end of the schooner before a shout went up from the *hlf*'s boat. We had been discovered. Just then I got out of stroke and my paddle struck Tom's. 1 was still dizzy from that crock on the head “Give Tlno that paddle." Larry called. "Boy, |f you don't want your hide ripped off in little strips—you pull water!” Thoroughly frightened he dropped into stroke, putting every ounce of his strength behind it Shootihg out from behind ths schooner 06 wc had, apparently took the crew of the other boat by sur prise. and it cost them a short time to ship their oars and get under way again. Now, relieved of my paddle, I looked back to see we had possibly a 300 yards lead. As the shout had gone up at our discovery, Pinga, who was at the steering paddle in the stern, had changed our course, and now clear of the eastern end of the atol we were headed north, pointing dead on Moatonga. Watching, 1 saw the schooner’s boat, offering less reaiatanci* Us the water than our heavily loaded canoe and outrigger, wai steadily gaming on uTc With perfect Jltythm Their oars rose and fell. Powerful muscles, I knew, were bending to those blades that moved with the nicety of a crew in a racing shefl. "Any objection If 1 root silently for the other sldeT' Livingston asked whimsically. "Root your head off, but don’t let me hear you!" Idrry snarled sav agely. "Don't be inhospitable, Larry," 1 remonstrated lightly. "Everyone save your breath! We are going to need It!” Tom ordered shortly. Then for minutes there was no sound save the dtp of the paddles, the gurgle of water and labored breathing. Looking back again I was startled to discover that less than 100 yards separated the two boats. The moon light glinted on their Wades. They were gaining much too fast. We were still close to two miles from the pass tn the reef which would take us into the boat house. "Give me that gun, Larry," I said "I'll try a couple of shots. Maybe I can nick them below the waterline. Anyway, it'll probably stop 'em tong enough to give us a fresh start.” "Sorry.” he answered shortly.” it's been jammed." I looked back. They were closer now. Our chances ©f making the pass were getting slimmer with each passing second. A fight .4 night in shark-Infested waters Is hot a pretty picture to linger oti. “Give me your puddle." 1 told Torn. “I feel better and I can spell you.” "Can't risk losing the strokes." he said briefly. Now, the other boat was so close that I could distinctly make out the flguras of the men to It. Not only did they have the advantage of a boat which offered less resistance, but also the added help of oar-locks on which they could string the full' weight of their muscular bodies. I realized with a sinking sensation that we were never going to make it. (Iq Xo this point Pauo had net doaen publications ... And an occa sional young Wall Street bond vender, always a good customer for romantic and "modem” ideas...Oh, yea, there are still "modem" ideas; not very new, but uttered passionately enough to earn the overworked term...

Dr. Dodd Speaker .When Wake Forest. ..Finals Are Ended Wake Forest, June 2—(AF)— The end of four ye,ir* of study had ar rived today for 125 graduates of Wake Forest College, who have completed their collegiate work here. A commencement address by Dr. William E. Dodd. University of Chi cago historian, and the conferring of degrees were the last of the com mencement functions. Judge Fred E.

NINE ARCHITECT* "WM GRADS AT STATE Raleigh, Juno 2—Nine students will b e graduated from the architectural department at State College this spring. Prof. Roes Shumaker, head of the Department, has announced. The students are: H. O. Beet, New Lon don; S. B. BrockweU, RAleigh; H. S Brooks, Oxford; R. A. Mauneyy. Ma rlon; H. R.

"Better try shooting the pass tn by the village. We ll save better than a mile,” she told him. "it's shallow and risky, loaded as we are, but thq> can t get through there. They’ll pile up if they try it. It's our onl» chance. We’ll never make the boai house. Think you can run it?” "I think so.” Pinga replied. I noticed that at Pauo’s first words our course had changed, and we were headed for that narrow strip of siifooth water—the only place along this shore where the white water from the ground swells wasn't run ning along in plumes and- jets of foam, as the sea erased dn the reet. , Again I looked back, and il war startled to find that now o\Jr lead had been cut to a mere four or flvt boat lengths. Wc could even see the features of the men In the other craft. Our canoe was getting the last ounce of momentum that flesh and blood could give it. Pinga was standing straight in now. and every dtp of the paddles was cutting down the distance be tween us and that safe black buckle there In that treacherous bait at while creaming foam. I felt like a slacker, but there was nothing 1 could do. Wc were almost in now Shooting this pass even In daylight with a lightly loaded canoe was delicate business. Now the canoe was loaded deep and It was only moonlight. \ mistake in judgment here would smash ’he frail craft on those jagged reef teeth which would slite it like a knife cutting a breakfast egg. That reef held a menace as great as though it had been formed by a twisted mass of.snajiee, instead of -coral* 4’auo KaA'- Veldv-tfs • slashes were equally poisonous. The schooner's boat was little more . than an oar’s length away, and we were right on the pass. Sud denly Livingston’s voice roared: “Get back! They’re going through the reef! Don’t try It! You'll get cut to ribbons! Get back, 1—” Larry bad leaped ever and bad him by the throat. "Shut up!" he snarled. “You’ll talk when you're told to!" "Larry! Quit that!” Tom snapped Livingston coughed as Holmes re leased his grip and grabbed bis pad dle. Looking back I saw the schooner’s boat lying on its oars, while we waited poised for that big wave. Then it came Pinga shouteu. the [(addle.- hit together and we were rocketing in just ahead of it, gaining not only the added momentum from the water, but those few precious extra inches of depth as well. Now, we were safe on the quiet waters of the lagoon and those who had been working the paddles during that six mile race were gulping air to oass tortured lung a With the canoe beached we undid Livingston’s feet, and between us Tom snd I got him up. We started up ties hard, wet sand of the beach, where the water had pounded it smooth. Tino was between the na tive*. while Pauo and Lbrry brought up the rear. If I remember correctly It was who broke the silencd firrd. As we marched up be the pori;k he hesitated. “Ah. home again!" he said ligrhtfp.
