Is he that considered) tfce poor: the
Lord will deliver bun i n time of trou
ble.—Psalm 41: 1.
Tho "siege of Washington" has not
proved a very profitable Investment
for the bonus army. While some of
the 20.000 veterans who were encamp
ed on the mud flats of the Potomac
declare their Intention to remain un
til 1945 if necessary, part of the ex
pentionary force already ia in retreat
And meanwhile this gesture of coer
cion has evoked a repercussion of
sentiment which Is expressed in coun
terattacks against the entire system
of veterans’ relief.
The demands which the Merchants
Association of New York have just
sent to Congress and the President are
typical of the growing public insis
tence upon a thoroughgoing revision
of the whole effort of the nation to
compensate those who made sacrifices
In its armed service during the World
War. The association asks for changes
which will restore relief to a basis
‘‘which is both Just to our veterans
end equitable to our country," while
at the same time saving 1400,000,000
a year.
In comparison with what Is con
sidered equitable tn other countries,
the association points out that:
"The total expenditures by this
country for veterans’ relief exceeds
that of Germany, France, Italy, Great
Britain and Canada combined, al
though these countries had a total of
34.2150,000 men mobilized and 16,800,-
000 casur.lttes. as against 4.355.000
mobilized this country and 360.000
And it is casualties that should be
considered On that basis the United
States Is paying out relief at a rate
forty-six times as great as these other
In times like these there must be a
retieat from such extravagance. And
there is good reason to believe that
in making it the Government can ac
tually improve the protection now af
forded to deserving veterans. For to
day more than half the men receiving
help from the Government are get
ting it as compensation for disabilities
not connected with war service.
Undoubtedly there are Individual
cases where disabilities actually due
to war service cannot be proved to
be so. and certainty generous allow
ances must be made to avoid injustice.
But the system has been so perverted
that the temptation is to trace any
disability back to the patriotic en
deavors of 1917-18. And politicians
have built up a belief that armed
service was the only service, and that
the only wartime sacrifices were those
made in uniform.
It is true there were too many
slackers and too many profiteers, but
aa a whole the American people
served as best they could during the
war Many a man who could not fight
had ruined; many a wo
man carried on valiantly In place of
a man who had Joined the army to
escape responsibilities at home It is
time to abandon the sentimentality
which would make every man whd
wore a uniform a charge upon the
Government. Justice to veterans who
really suffered and fairness to those
who also served by standing stead
fast at home requires a retreat from
that untenable position.

To the Editor:
Your present and fufture United
States senator, Hon. Camera* Mor
rison. will, speak to the Democratic
voters of Henderson and Vance coun
ty Tuesday night in the oourt bouse.
His long service to the Democratic
party and the great State of North
Carolina, entitles him to a large and
representative audience on that occa
sion. He is winning his fight all
along the line and will become a very
substantial majority on July 2.
Before the first primary, he did not
make any effort to ereate a Statewide
organization, aj both he and a ma
jority of his friends assumed he would
win without effort. The results of
the first primary astounded his
friends and aroused their fighting
blood and they have gone to work with
a vim and ami that will bring vic
tory to his standard.
Bab Reynolds ha* proved himself
to be the master political showman
of this decade. His speeches were
masterpieces of satir and wit, but his
logic was entirely specious, his elo
quence swept the people off tfieir
feet and gave them two hours of de
lightful Dtcrtalnmcnt. His first show
was fine, but he is finding that, like
all good shows, they are never aa good
drawing cards when they play f. re
turn engagement as they proved to
b« when first seen and heard.
The good women of the State and
the moral and religious elements are
also aroused and have gone to work
for Senator Morrison. A large por
tion of the thirty thousand voters whef
cast their ballots in the first primary
for Governor and neglected to express
and preference on the Senatorahip will
com out next Saturday and vote, for
Senator Morrison. He will have a
majority of approximately fifty thou
sand votes in the second primary over
his splendid adversary.
No sane or fair minded man would
dispute the fact that Bob Reynolds
would make a great senator if he
should win the nomination but it has
always heretofore been the policy of
North Carolina Democrats to reward
their faithful servante and in voting
for Senator Morrison they are reward
ing a man who has been a faithful ser
vant of the Democratic Party and the
Stats of North Carolina for Forty
years It would be nqthing short of
the basest ingratitude to retire him
at this time simply to gratify the poll
ical activities. Morrison is already
in the Senate with the very best com
mittee assigngment and it would take
a new man several years to attain the
position of Influence Senator Morri
son now occupies in the United States
Senate. He is a good and true man,
incorruptible and able to wage effec
tive combat with the ablest men in
That august body, why throw away
his experience and unquestioned abil
ity and elect a man without any leg
islative experience whatever?.

Paris, June 29—Now tihere Is a
Hotel Radio in Montmartre . . . The
Chateau de Madrid, long famed as a
snooty eating place, is featuring Its
cheapest lunch
eon jn years . ..
About a dollar
and a half per
plate . . . Any
.•tc«pleja«k can
climb the scaf
folding of the
Eiffci Tower to
the top ... A
maniac once tiied it. and had one of
those Indomitable French policemen
follow him. The nut jumped at, the
halfway mark.
The town is apparently, jammed
with tourists . . . The railroad sta
tions on some mornings resemble the
hurly-burly of 1929 peak Influxes . .
But they are mysterious tourists:
shopkeepers and night club owners
can't understand wherd they go,
where their money 1* spent.
Word hes even trickled back that
those rat-like humans w>fb frequent
the side streets, whispering invita
tions to Babylonian debaucheries, are
finding it difficult to peifcuade pros
pective customers . . . One of t*>#m
i'ss hit over the head with an um
brella the other evening, as all of
them should be . . . But the wlelder
was a famous American actor In ris
que musical comedies.
The beer-drinking championship of
Harry’s Bar are so well known to
tourists from the far corners of the
earth that they have assumed an al
most academic interest . . . The ves
sel to be used by all competitors Is a
glass mug in the form of a boot . . .
It holds a litre and a half, and the
shortest time In which the contents
have ever been downed rmaains at 17
second*. 4
Harry Mcfilon, the jovial proprietor
of this thirst emporium, ha* lined the
walls of his place with press clippings
and maz&glne stories concerning it.
Evqgi prohibitionists have dropped
into the New York Bar, and for inno
cent reasons . . . Near the opera, it
has become a standard meeting place
for all the sundry . . . During the
past few months a curious thing has
happened too ... A sportive crowd
of young Frenchmen have discovered
Harry and frequent his establish
ment regularly, posing a dilemma . .
For Harry likes to have English
spoken along the rail ... "It sounds
good when you poke your head in."
Pleasantest of diversions in the
cool of late afternoons, especially
when the asphalt of the Champ* Ely
see has been sizzling all day long,
is -to wander Into the fresh, sweet
shade of the Luxembourg gardens . .
There the tree* form a darkness from
the final yellow light, and between
them youngsters play tennis, nurse
maid* drowse and old men with the
fiercest mustachios capable of culti
vation knock croquet ball* lazily to
and fro.
The Lido, one of the most original
play spots In the world, is filled each
evening at the cocktail hour with
English and Americans . . . There It
is possible to alp your aperitif io
bathing attire at the edge of a long,
inviting pool, and when the mood
moves you djop your napkin and dive
Into the swiftly lighted depth*.
Up Montmartre way, where out-of
town exploitation caused a ten-year
debacle, the real French people are
filling in a fw of the gaps made by
absentee American* this year . . .
Two of the gagdiest of tfie ‘‘strictly
tourist” spots are cabarets wildly and
fearsomeiy decorated to carry out the
motif of their names: Heaven and
Hell . . . These are ancient side
shows, and those in the know could
have assured you a few years ago
that they were run specifically for
the edification of wide-eyed tourists,
preferably American.
Now. with prices reduced, they are
getting by because the French In
habitants of the neighborhood have
found them ptcaresquely diverting.

Raleigh, Jqno 27.—Rapid increase
In the number of cases of typhoid
fever that hava bean reported so far
during June is continuing to causa a
good deal of concern to the State
Board of Health, according, to Dr.
James M. Parrott, it* executive secre
tary. If the typhoid cases ware limit
ed to merely one section or locality,
they would not be such a problem,
since It would then be an easy mat
ter to trace thism to the cause and
remove the cause. Dr. Parrott said.
But with the cases widely distributed
and scattered far and near, they pre
snt a real problem.
During the week that ended
25, a total of 35 new cases of typhoid
were reported, while In the week be
fore 37 new cases were reported. In
all, 98 nw cases of typhoid have bean
reported since the first of June, while
tn former years there have been only
comparatively few caaes In June.
The Only area in which there has
been more than the usual number of
typhoid cases has been In the south
eastern part of the State in the area
immediately surrounding Pender and
Duplin counties, according to Dr. Par
rott. Seven cases were reported from
Duplin county within a few days, but
all of these have now been definitely
traced to a sfngle- farm in Pender
county and it ie believed that the
cause of these cases will soon be is
olated. Three of the sanitary Inspec
tors of th board and the head of the
division of epidemiology are now work
ing in these counties seeking to isolate
the exact cause.
So far there is nothing to suggest
an epidemic, according to Dr. Par
rott. since most of hte cases are so
widely scattered. But care and pre
caution should be exercised by every
one in order to prvent any further
increase in the number of cases.
"The main cause seems to be just
a general let down on the part of in
dividuals In their observance of the
laws of sanitation and the general
carelessness on the part of many peo
ple with regard to vaccination and
immunization against typhoid fever,”
Dr. Parrott said. “Part of It may be
due to the fact that the Board of
Health has not had enough funds to
provide as many csuiitary inspectors
as it should have .and thus has not
been able to do as much inspections!
and educational work as it haVdone
in the past in trying to stamp out
typhoid In North Carolina.
‘We feel confident, however, that
if the people of the state will only give
more thought to the dangers of typ
hoid, immunize beuasslves against it
by vaccination and carfqjly watch the
sanitary conditions surrounding their
homes in order to prevent containing-}

number of typhoid cases can be check
ed. For if milk and waer supplies are
carefully watched and kept free from
contamination and if homes are
screened and flies kept away from
milk and food, there is almost no
chance for typhoid to get a foothold.
Typhoid prevention, in the final analy
sis, Is largely a matter of education.”
One of the most dangerous sources
typhoid this time of year is the “old
swimming hole," accordin gto Dr. Par
rott, who says there is always dan
ger of becoming Infected with typ
hoid from gMng swimming in ponds,
creeks or rivers that are not fed by
fresh, pure water. Most of the creeks
and rivers in the State are more or
less polluted with sewage and hence
likely to contain typhoid germs, Dr.
says, and warns campers and vaca
tionists to use extreme caution in
•electing their places to go bathing.
“The only really safe places to go
swimming are swimming pools in
which the water is changed frequently
and in which the sanitation is care
fully guarded, in lakes where the sani
tation is also carefully watched and
and in the ocean,” Dr. Parrott said.
“For most of the ponds, creeks and
rr.eis are too contaminated to he
safe for swimming.”
There are In the United States some
7,000 trade associations.
