Soma one with a thought that a
little attention should be given to '
the daddies of men has designated the ■
third Sunday in June as Fathers Day. j
That day is tomorrow.
Folks are pestered with so many \
“days' that most of them go by as
any other ordinary occasion. The
thing really has been overdone. But
it is not at all amiss that we have '
by common consent in this country 1
settled upon a Mother's Day, and it
follows naturally that some time
should be riven to father as well. i
It has been said that father pays j
the bills for the celebration of
Mothers Day. just as he does for
most other things that are had about I
the house and elsewhere. It is his
pocketbook and what is in it. whether !
much or little, that keeps the world
moving, financially and economically
speaking. He pays the bill for the I
family sats and the family clothing,
whether they be fancy or just plain
and ordinary. He sends son and
daughter to college and pays for the
family’s vacation, and does a thousand
and one other things without which
w# would be miserable creatures.
If mother furnishes the love for the
family and makes the home from the
standpoint of affection and hospitality,
father at least contributes his part.
But that is not aIL He has a heart
the same as others, and ha lovm aad
cmrM for every number of the home !
dgcle. .Hiss heart Jches when he can
not give them wh|lt they would like I
to have, and' he is just as much ac
quainted with the sacrifices that are
necessary and his heart bleeds, too,
whea sorrow enters the home, or
whan ona of the children goes astray
or gats tni(> trouble of any kind. Of
tentimes dad carries burdens on his j
heart that ;he world r either ksnv-< !
about nor appreciates. Ha keeps them
to himself that the happiness of
others may not be marred. Ha should
ers his part of the burdens and te- i
sponsibihtiee of everyday life, and is
no stranger to the difficulties that
rise to plague and torment. He en
joys the roses that cheer the human
heart along the way. but the thorns
pierce his calloused hands, too, and
his heart bleeds many times when his
sorrow is hidden by a smile or a
cheerful countenance, and even some
times by a forlorn look or an anxious
Give him a hand, than, on this
Fathers Day. At least we can let him
know that he has a full measure of
sympathy and affection from those
who share so generously wh&t he tries
hard to provide. If we are to hav« a
Mother’s Day, it Is not inappropriate
that dad also be given at least a
thought now and then.
While North Carolina may still be
classed as a dry state, events at the
Democratic State Convention Thurs
day gave convincing proof to thorn
looking for it that the old common
wealth ia not so boat# dry an 4he
used to he. Nothing area more cer
tain than that there ia a changing
sentiment here on prohibition, og at
least thal what there is ia holder aad
has leas fear of coming to the Mar
A considerable element of the con
vention would have taken a definite
stand for re-submission of the issue
to the people. M Indeed sot for eut
rfght repeal of the law, could they
have had their own way about it.
While wetness is evidently grossing,
it has not made so much progress as
yet hut that there are genuine fears
of too much boldness, lest the reac
tion might be of sufficient strength
to produce something of a party dis
The prohibition plank lo the plat
form was a concession to the wets,
while at the same time not going tax
enough to alienate the dry element.
By wording the declaration so as to
give it the color of recognizing the
rights of the people, the moist dele
gatee had the drys where they could
not object without making themselves
appear to be in opposition to car
dinal democratic principles. In view of
present conditions, if may be said
safely that the platform did not go
as far as changing sentiment and con
victions have gone.
The transformation of the last four
years in North Carolina leads to tba
almost inescapable conclusion that
prohibition laws In the State are In
for a shaking up. along with the na
tional dry statutes, and especially will
that be true it the eighteenth amend
ment is referred back to the people.
It is not a pessimistic view, but
rather the looking of facts In the
face, to suppose that anti-prohibition
legislation may he expected in the
1933 General Assembly.
In the light of theee conditions, the
prohibitionists might consider that
they got off fairly well at the hands
of the platform writers and the dele
gates in tba Stale convention Ttauis

Unless the United States Supreme
Court reverses the decision of the
State courts here, the Luke Leas and
Wallace Davis must take their places
along with others in the State Prison
who have disregarded the law for
personal gain. This week the North
Carolina Supreme Court upheld the
conviction of the trio in Buncombe
County Superior Court last summer
for violation of the State banking
laws, one result of which was the
wrecking of the 117,000,000 Central
Bank and Trust Company of Ashe
ville in the fall of 1830, carrying down
with it the fortunes of thousands of
people in that city and county and
with its repercussions felt in all parts
of Western North Carolina
There will, of course, be sympathy
for these men. But men in high places
must learn that the same law that
applies to the poor man reaches out
also to the rich. There is some reality,
despite the common conception of
things to the contrary, In the saying
that the same law Is made for ail.
One who did not sit in on the testi
mony at the trial last summer in
Asheville is hardly capable of passing
oa the merits of the case in its
minutest detail, but a judge and a
jury In superior court heard K and
decided that the defendants were
guilty, and the State Supreme Court,
after reviewing that evidence, haa af
firmed their judgment. The rest of
us can merely accept their verdict as
henest and righteous.
Men in positions of great respon
sibility owe mors to their fellows than
the humble citizen who moves in a
restricted circle of society. When he
goes wrong, only he and & few inti
mates are affected. But when those
who have been entrusted with serious
duties where thousands of people are
concerned betray tbeir obligations,
countless others are made to suffer
with them. Their offense is thus she
Every criminal merits the sympathy
of his fellows, because somewhere
along the line there is a cause for his
whywardnes4 But the little fellow
seldom feels the warmth of a friendly
hand. There will certainly be sym
oathy for the Leas and Davis. But if
they are guilty as charged, they are
no better to take their medieine than
the humble, insignificant citizen. The
fact that they have had the oppor
tunity to learn and know better makes
their act the more serious.
While the United States is preparing
to modify its liquor laws as a blow
against increasing crime, Great Bri
tain. whch has never had prohibition,
is awakening to the realization that
strong iditnk is Vone of ; *he j chief
causes of its law violations and of
conditions of poverty which breed
crime. Those in Anwrica who are de
manding modification or repeal of the
eighteenth amendment talk glibly or
the number of court actions trace
able to whiskey, and charge that pro
hibition as we now have it is respond
sible for the growing disregard of the
law. Great Britain, however, fur
nishes a concrete example of a nation
where liquor Is both legal and plentH
| ful, but where crime is rapidly le'i
| creasing just the same.
If the repealers in this country are
honest in their demands, they are
due foe a rude awakening. There will
Com* * Un% oX, diainuntopmeut. One
guess la that if lfWekeir were free
and open In America today, our con
dition would be very much worse than
It is. And if liquor is brought back
before the economic crisis lifts, we
’believe that will be demonstrated.
Pointing to the situation In Groat
Britain, the Christian Science Monitor
“Amid all the earnest attention
which the English press today is do
voting to the problem of increasing
crime, there seems to be an almost
studied avoidance of one of the prin
cipal factors. That factor is the direct
and indisputable relation between
'drink and the commission of crime.
“It Is easy to throw criticisms at
Scotland Yard. It is valuable to re
cognize that the rise In crime in
Great Britain has paralleled in many
ways the rise in unemployment. But
to pass over the manifest evils of the
&rink trade, whether from a fear of
offending a vested interest or because
of the difficulty of coping with the
problem, is to neglect the larger wel
fare of the nation.
“Drink is a double cause of crime.
It not only creates criminals, but it
spreads the very poverty which en
courages crime and which the police
and press already admit Is responsible
for much of its recent increase.
“An impartial investigation lately,
completed by a distinguished commit
tee of British citizens, whose report
received but scant attention in the
English newspapers disclosed that
drink is responsible for fully 40 per
cent of all common criminal cases,
that it is a factor in 25 per cent of
violent crime, and nearly 50 per cent
of all cases of assault and willful
“Can such a cause of criqpe be ig
“This same investigation disclosed
that in large sections of Great Britain
in which the earnings of families are
insufficient to obtain the barest
necessities, drink Is responsible for 25
per cent of this poverty. It also dis
closed that in fls per cent of the cases
wherein the earnings of families
would otherwise be sufficient at least
for physical efficiency, drink drags
this poverty below the subsistence
“Poverty parallels crime. Can such
a cause of crime be ignored? **•
“ ‘The time has come,' declares
Time and Tide an English weekly
whose views rightly carry weight, ’for
the Government to institute an In
quiry, by royal commission or other
wise. into the whole question of crime
in relation to present conditions. It
is Important that the public should
know more about the influences that
are at work.'
“Such an inquiry would be most de
finitely useful if Its terras of reference
are sufficiently broad. While it is true
that the liquor evil is but one of
numerous influences behind the pre
sent rise of crime, there can be no
full understanding of the problem and
no adequate measures to cope with
the problem until drink is clearly re
cognized as a social evil demanding
effective control.”

At Sea, June 18—In the ship’s smok
er, as in every place of its kind, are
signs warning travelers against pre>-
fessional gamblers. The caution, lam
told by merrtbers
of this ship’s
staff, is well-nigh
meaninngless in
these days.

ulous but engaging crew. They began
to go about the time bowler hats,
pound watch chains and checkered
vests grew declasse.
Os course, big-time gamblers here
and there continued to flourish
through a modern era, but most of
them transferred Into more lucrative
lines asshore after the birth of the
Racket spelled with a capital R. A
veteran smoking room Stewart con
fided to me the case of a once thriv
ing gamester who failed to make ex
penses during thre e crossings and at
last, in general desperations, squand
ered the few thousand francs he had
garnered during the trip on a cham
pagne party for his victims.
There is never a crossing without
its quota of Men of Mystery. They
are the folks whose names do not ap
pear on the passenger list, who stroll
about the decks wrapped in seLf-«uf
ficient isolation, meeting casual at
tempts at acquaintance with an icy
aloofness which provokes a wildfire
of speculation.
Near my deck chair sits a tall gen
t leman with a shock of red hair neat
ly pompadour*d and a pair of dis
concerting green eyes. All attempts
to find out who he is have been fruit
less since the rnornin gwhen a volun
teer from the contingent of debutan
tes aboard passed a tray for donations
to the steamship line's charities fund.
This is one of the worthiest of mari
time causes, but when the obscure per
sonage of the green eyes unbuttoned
a heavy ulster and dropped a 5,000-
franc note Into the platter an audible
gasp ran aloag the row of chairs. The
young lady almost fainted and assur

night life, of course I struck up an

ors to Paris as Joe ZeMi.
Paul has owned, managed or Md a

night clubs. Apparently there is no
one who isn’t "one of the beat friendi
I have on this earth” to Paul, and
curiously,, this claim to closeness with
the rostrum of fam« on two continents
is apparently genuine.
He is a man of great worldliness,
and for a long time has had to shift
for himself in some of the most trying
occupations extant. The Broadway
night club game is tough enough, but
:t is good clean fun to be indulged
in by softies compared to the 4aie

Paul has a disarming so.il e and an

a Bay fellow, but beneath his geniality
there is the hint of steel. You became
