A safe Investment —He that hath
pity upon the poor lendeth unto the
Lord; and that which he hath given
will he pay turn again —Prov. 19: 17.
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
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
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.

To the Editor:
I wish to thank you for publishing
the picture and statement about my
good friend, Herbert E. Crews and
add my tribute to his memory.
He and I have been friends for many
years, in fact, it foHowed a close
friendship between him and my fath
er who was his family physician for
many years.
He was a good, straightforward,
honest citizen and Christian. He
strived to raise his children right and
do his duty by his fellowman.
He will be greatly missed by his
ohtireh community and many friends,
whose sympathies and prayers go up
for his beloved ones in their sorrow.

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

tion itself. That these methods are

Tyre Taylor was elected president at

attended by delegates from 27 states,

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

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
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

tees and merged thepTwith the Ehring

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.
