CRISIB NOT ENDED. Beginning of the long trek hack home by small groups of former ser vice men who have been encamped in the suburbs of Washington demand ing payment of the bonus gives a faint ray of hope that the crisis may be passing. But let no one suppose that It has yet ended. It haus not. Most people, while confident of the futility of the veterans’ hopes, nevertheless with a feeling of alarm their rapid invasion of the national capital. Such a gathering of unemployed men, driven on by the pangs of hunger and the anguish of soul born of the Buf fering of their loved ones as one of the results of enforced idleness, con tained the seeds of unrest and revolt. It is to be said to the everlasting credit of the veterans .as this news paper has observed before, that they have behaved themselves like gentle men. They have handled roughly the communist element that hophed in on their crusade with the sole purpose of making trouble, and. while de manding what they conceived to be their just dues, have at the same time displayed no outward evidences of violence in obtaining acquiescence of Congress. Yet they could have brought on disturbance, and possibly even bloodshed, had they been led by men of forcefulness, coupled with reckless and irresponsible desires to gain their ends. Government authorities outwardly turned a cold shoulder to the problem of feeding and housing the men, yet emissaries of officialdom found away to furnish enough food to prevent actual suffering and thus averted what might have devekiped Into an ugly situation. Opinions differ as to the extent of the evacuation of the veterans follow ing the Senate’s defeat of the bonus payment proposition. Police said they were leaving in laege numbers. Lead ers of the soldiv 9 said only a few had gone and they were going hack home for the purpose of enlisting new re cruits to the end that 150.000 might he assembled in Washington by the felt The police interpretation of the movement probably Is the nearer oor reet. But the exodus of the veterans certainly has not as yet assumed pro portions to warrant a complete re legation of anxiety. One of the worst phases a# the whole situation is the action of Cer tain congressmen in denouncing the dee! sion of their colleagues in refus ing to wreck the financial structure of ths government by applying the strain to its credit that would ensue' If the bonus were paid In full at ttyls time. To say that payment should be 1 made now because of aid to industry and agriculture that has already been given is misleading. Every one knows that such assistance has been in the farm of loans which will be repaid, whereas the bonus would be an out right disbursement of money which would not come back. It would not halp business. The only permanent help business can expect Is from gain ful occupations for the unemployed, and paying the bonus certainly would not provide that. There never would have been the stir among the veterans that has developed had they not been goaded on and enoouraged by mam hara of Congress, hopeful, of political gain by ingratiating themselves in the good graces of the ex-soldiers and their friends. While the movement away from Washington offers *a ray of hope, it qptainly Is by no means a positive assurance that the crisis has pegged , SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE. Recurring accidents at the inter section of Garnett and Granite streets some of them serious and others not so much so. are constant reminders of the hazards to traffic at that im portant crossing It is at that point that Route 90 enter* the city, and on three of the four corners are fill ing stations, whose customers attract a steady stream of motorists to say nothing of the through traffic that meets there. At this place also all traffic from Oxford and Durham en ters the city. ■Suggestion* (have fjeen made re peatedly that some method of traffic control should be provided at this important intersection. It Is under stood that the question has been dis cussed (by city officials Rnd State I Highway Commission authorities, and that the highway organisation has failed to act, and because it holds back, the city does also. Increasing frequence of accidents at the place emphasizes tha imperative need for action of some kind by some ■one with the power to act. Either the highway commission or the city, or both together, should Install a traffic control signal there. While two im | portant State highways converge at I this point, thus putting a portion of | the responsibility there, the f&ct is ' that the intersection is within the j Henderson city limits, and the City j Council ought to have a right to ! handle the situation. Indeed, it would j seem to be more a duty of the city than of the highway commission if the duty rests more with one than the other. Residents of Henderson use ! the city streets far more than tran ’ sients who make up the volume of through traffic, and in a number of accidents that have occurred there Henderson people have figured at one time or another. ; Fortunately, there have thus far been no fatal wrecks, but there have been some very serious ones—serious both as to injuries done to individuals and to property, including motor ve hicles and filling stations at the in -tersection. No one can tell just when there will he a fatal accident, and even if there could be the assurance that no one would ever be killed, the suffering resulting from injuries and the loss of property in wrecks far more than offset the cost that would be involved in the erection and main tenance of a traffic control signal. The time has come when the State Highway Commission and the City Council should cease their dallying and passing the buck from one to the other over the question of respon sibility. Hazards that exist make it j Imperative that some means of pro tection and regulation shall be pro vided. One or the other or both of these agencies should act and act Im mediately for the safeguarding of life and property at this point. Henderson citizens have a right to expect that this condition shall not longer be neg lected, and to hope that it will not be necessary it bat a fatality 'shall occur before the authorities are suf ficently aroused from their attitude of indifference. | ' YOUR TAXES GO DP. Tour income has been reduced— are lucky if it has not been cut out entirely—but, starting tomorrow, you are going to feel the cost of some of your living expenses going up, reflect ing the imposition of heavy taxes that have been imposed by your Uncle Sam in a desperate effort to balance his budget. Unlike most of the rest of us, .yonr Uncle has not cut his operating costs to the level of his reduced in come, and the result is he is running miserably behind in the operation of his business. Again unlike not only most but all of us, he has a way t of ! Vetting hie money, prosperity of? tio j proeperity. He just reaches his kmg | irm down Into the pockets of hla nieces and nephewß and pulis out what he has to have. Bo tomorrow he ' •will begin that unpleasant procedure. I Every time you buy a new auto | mobile tire or tube, you’ll pay a little | extra fee of two to four cents pier | pound. You will pay from five to ten percent more for your toilet articles • and candy, and If you are lueky i enough to have the money to buy a j new automobile, It will cost you three percent more than It has been cost ing. You- new radio or electric re frigerator will cost five percent more if you buy a new one from now on, and your .bill for electric current, whether in your home or at your place of business, will have a tax of three percent added. The power companies were so poor and so near broke , bless their little hearts, that they couldn’t stand the tax, so Congress was good enough to pass the new levy along ta those of us who use the current. Wf are all better off and more able t<? pay. , Gasoline Is also to pay an extrg cent tax per gallon. Every aheolt yoq write in payment of a bill will be taxed two cants, beginning tomorrow, and if you are fortunate enough t<J sell a piece of land, SO-cent stamp sos every fSOO at eeaeideration Involved must be applied to make the action legal.

Then when n«qt Ranch 18 you pey your Federal tax you’ll'find the rates are higher and the exemptions lower. But. moot of us would be happy to have an iacocne big enough to come within that range. If we don’t, there will at least be the consolation that no tax will he assessed. These ate just a few of the new levies that have been put on the Am erican people in the new revenue bill as Congress has sought to get enough money to pay the operating coats of the Federal government. Probably it is true, as many think, that econo mies have not been carried far enough in Washington, but, be that ae it may. the taxes have been imposed, and moat of us shortly will learn there is no mistake about that.

Andre Luguet, the French movie star who is the Clark Gable °f his ’und J-iipped through a cordon of reporters and walked to the train with me. I asked him whether he got the same kick out of seeing the Glare St. Lazara (three hours ahead) that Ame ricans do. “How about entering New York?’’ I asked htaa. “Does your heart start skipping ae you approach the Bat tery? That’s for just going home, of course: I wonder whether coming to Paris is simply coming home to you?" “It’s different. Maybe I can ex plain it to you this way. New York is young'. But Paris is youth. Does that make sense?" I think it does. WORKING UNDER HANDICAP Through some fortunate accident, this compartment for four contains only two of us. companion is an elderly French lady who isn't one ot the crowd from the Lafayette and who is plainly annoyed with all this hullabaloo. Particularly does her lip which bears a slight mustache, curl at the rpectacle of me pounding a typewriter. She plainly believes that no one ex cept a dizzy American would put him self to so much inconvenience to no purpose. “Why must you do that?” she has finally demanded. “You cannot mail a letter until you get to Paris, any way . *’ My explanation was, I felt ah shaky as my French. , WELCOME SIGN This is one of the loveliest train journeys in the world, particularly through a countryside green with sum mer.

The towns flash by clinging to hill sides and sleeping peacefully on pla teaus in the sun.

YOUNG DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT GROWS (Conti nuad from Page One.) undivided attention. Afterwards much comment wa sheard that the chief need of the Democratic party na tionally is about 5,000,000 additional voters and that this movement on the part of the younger element looks like a thoroughly practical and feasible way to get them. As a matter of fact, Taylor has convinced the Democratic National Committee that this is the' most effective possible approach to the problem of securing militant new recruits and the organization of the Young Democrats has been adopted as one of the major activities of the re gular party organization. Another feature of the dinner that made an impression was the an nouncement that President Robert M. Hutchins, 3s-year-old president of the University of Chicago .and Admiral Richard E. Byrd, will be the principal speaker 1 *; gt the National Young Demo cratic Conference dinner in Chicago, on June 27. It is something new under the sun for educators and explorers to participate in a partisan political rally, but this entire movement is new, at least insofar as America is con cerned. Direct appeal is made to a class of young people who have never before taken an interest in public and political affairs and the methods by which the movement Is being estab lished are as unique as the organiza succeeding was evidenced by the in tion itself. That these methods are tense interest with which the speeches of Harold Cooley and John Rodman were f received. _ < J. Dewey Dorsett, a member of the Industrial Commission and active in the Young Democratic organixafloq In North Carolina from its ttceptVod, was elected president, and Mrs. Mae Evans of High oint, vice-president of the North Carolina division of,the young Democratic Clubs of Americal , They have set as their goal 50J900 members by the time of the election. Should the national organization, of which Tyre Taylor was elected president at a meeting held in Washington amt attended by delegates from 27 states, attain its goal of 1,000,4>00 active mem bers, it is estimated that this would be the equivalent of at least 4,000.000 ne wand additional votes and might represent the margin necessary for victory in the national election. Since the organization meeting in Washing ton on March 4-5, the movement has been launched in 36 states. One State, New York, reports over 600 clubs al ready formed and Illinois has set out to eclipse the New York record. EHRINGHAUS DRIVE PUSHED TO EAST rOontlnu*! from PM. OM.t leaving no stone unturned to assure victory. Saturday night Ehrbtfghau* and Mc- Lendon , held a conference meeting with the JShripgbau* eeuety mana- gers and committeemen from 21 dif ferent counties In Greenville, In the heart of the Fountain territory. This meeting was most enthusiastic, Mc- Lendon reported, with the managers , and committeemen showing an ever more mHitant spirit than before. He is expecting Ehringhaus to get a lar ger vote in these eastern counties than in the first primary. Monday night two meetings with Ehringhaus managers will be held, held. The Ehringhaus managers and the committeemen from eight coun ties meet in Sanford with Major Mc- Lendon, while Ehringhaus will con fer with his managers and workers from six counties in a meeting in New Bern. Tuesday night both Ehringhaus and McLendon will attend the con ference meeting of county managers and committeemen from six counties in Fayetteville. Additional conferences will be held in other sections of the State throughout the week, though these have not yet been scheduled. At Fountain's headquarters it was said today that they had no definite plans to announce, although they ex pected to announce some speaking dates for Fountain in the near future. Fountain's managers maintain that he has been receiving strong assur ances of support from many new quar tern, especially from those who sup ported Maxwell in the first campaign. It is evident that here in Raleigh and Wake county a great many of those who supported Maxwell in the first primary will now support Fountain, since the feeling here is very bitterly anti-administration and anti-adminis tration and anti-Gardner, especially on the part of many of the State em ployes who still blame the governor personally for the salary cuts put into effect. It is also a matter of history that Raleigh and Wake county are usually anti-administration and “agin' the government generally. So it is al ready being conceded that Fountain will get a larger majority here in the seoond primary than be did In the first. But reliable reports from other sec tions of the State do not indicate that what is conceded in Wake county will prevail in other counties. In fact, ac cording to many of the Maxwell sup porters who were here at the State Democratic Convention last week, the opinion was prevalent that most of those who supported Maxwell in the first primary will now vote for Ehringhaus. The Ehringhaus mana gers say that in a number of counties they have taken MaxwAil’s for mer campaign manager* and commit tees and merged thepTwith the Ehring haus organizations and that those who fbnpdrly worked for Maxwell>are now out- working equally as hard Sor Ehringhaus. TEXTBOOK CHANGES ARE AGAIN TALKED (Continued from Pag* Qua.) study becomes the entering wedge to ward the adoption of a new textbook or a new series. After a fight of more than two years, the commission has just succeeded in getting new texts adopted in arithmetic, spelling and drawing, and in spite of loud protests from mapy of the parents of the chil dren who must buy these books. In the face of the textbook changes that have already been made thie year and with cotton and tobacco prices steadily going lower and lower, after having reached the lowest level in the memory of this generation, it le be lieved in most circles here that both the Textbook Commission and the State Board of Education will do well to go extremely alow before recom mending pny additional changes in textbooks .either now or later. It can easily he seen that some of the text book publishers would like to have a new adoption recommended. But It is believed here that ev«n the con sideration of a change In the geo graphy texts now in use will make the parents of the 813.456 elementary school children in ths fourth to Mvxni li gmdss inclusive, that uss geo- graphies, rise up in righteous indig nation and register a protest that anil be heard in all sections of the Suit. The adoption of a ne wgeogTaphy series would mean that the parents of the 313,458 children j who use geo graphies would have to discard the books they now are using and buy new ones. It would also mean that tbt books could not be passed along from one child to another in families when several children are in school, thus making necessary a great deal of ad ditional expense for no apparent rea son. It is also a fact that the geo graphy texts are among the mo6t ex pensive books school children have to buy, because of the large number of colored maps, plates and illustrations It is also maintained that since geo graphy deals principally with natural conditions and political boundaries none of which have changed mate ially since the present texts were adopted, there is no urgent need for changing these books as often ae u: other subjects. Frequent changing of textbook* n the schools of the State has caused so much feeling over the State that it has already become a political u sue, A. J. Maxwell, in his recent cam paign for the Democratic nomination for governor, attacked what be called the “text book racket” in no uncer tain terms and predicated much of his campaign upon his opposition to the present system of textbook adop tion and textbook costs Althougx Maxwell did not win the nomination for governor, he won thousands o( friends by daring to come out into the open and challenge those who have forced the present textbook system upon the State, especially those who are constantly wanting to change the textbooks In use. It is a notable faet that within the last two months the publishers o t one of the textbook series in use in the State has reduced the price of these books about 20 per cent. Many Relieve this was done because of the light that Maxwell was focusing on the “text book racket." Those wbo have an eye to the future and consideration for the pocketbooks of parents beiteve that the Textbook Commission and the State Board of Education would do better to try to get the publishers of series now in use to reduce their prices on these series instead of to to get entirely new adoptions.
