•o loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten Son. that whosoever be
lievetti in him should not perish, but
have everlafding life John 3:16.
Passing of the annual summer en
campment season for the numerous
local units of the National Guard calls
to mind the big places these organiza
tions occupy in the life of this com
munity. It is probably true that no
other town or city in the State the
aiza of Henderson has so many in
dividual and separate military organ
izations as Henderson, and probably
rone with mote efficient or capable
citizen soldiers. Ours is what might
properly be termned a civilian mili
tary town.
The infantry organization is the
oldest in point of years, and in addi
tion to that group there are several
commissioned officers with high rank
in regimental circles who have come
up through that company and have
been given places of important re
sponsibility because of their fitness.
In the 105th Medical Regiment there
are in Henderson the service company,
the regimental band and the head
quarters outfit, with the colonel in |
command of the entire regiment a
Henderson citizen. While not an or
g&nlatton in itself, there are also quite
a number of young men in the com
munity who have been to the C. M.
T. C. camps, at Fort Bragg or else- l
where for from one to four years, j
Henderson almost always takes up }
tha Black from other localities that
do not furnish their entire quota and
sends more men than allotted here.
Whatever else may be said of mili
tary training, it is an important fac
tor In imparting valuable instruction
in discipline and personal habits, and
thu* becomes a big asset to the young
nun who gives a part of his time to
aach activities. It builds a high type
of oiU^ershlp.
Another factor in the military at
mosphere of the community is the
continuous presence in the city and
county of these units, which gives a
guarantee of the preservation of law
and order and affords a sense of sat
isfaction and safety byway of pro
tection against lawlessness that might
auddenly get beyond the power of the
peace officers. That is worth a great
deal to any city or town.
9till another feature of the wide
■weep of the local military establish
ments is the money it brings into the
community. While it is not such a very
great deal to the average Individual,
yet it is a tidy sum to augment in
comes from regular employment, and
amounts to considerable in times
when there is unemployment, such as
the present. In the aggregate It
amounts to the distribution of thou
sands of dollars in the city and cout)*
ty In the course of a year.
All in all, the citizen soldiery of
Henderson Is one of its greatest as
set* and a thing in which the city
takes a great deal of pride, especially
in the large measure of efficiency that
hfli been attained. We should regret
to think that any turn of the fates
might deprive of us these valued
Tou can take It from Carl Goerch
that an honest confession Is good for
tha soul. Carl, you know, is editor and
owner of the Washington Progress, a
wavkly newspaper in Washington,
North Carolina, one of the brightest
and best edited of the weekly news
papers of this State.
Goerch offers an apology for the
hard things he said of Sendfor Slm
-1 mons #fien the better set Ms foot
doWn firttly on Alfred ft. Srfaith in
1938 and refused to support him,
though knowing that the course he
was pursuing might cost hifh his po
litical life, which it did. After re
tracting his abuse of four years ago,
and admitting that Simmons was
right and he Was wrong, Goerch winds
up an editorial by declaration that “I
believe there' are & great many other
people In North Carolina who feel
exactly as I do about him.” He is
right. There are a great many such
people—folks who in 1928 saw things
as Simmons did, including even a
number who voted for Smith but did
so reluctantly and decidedly against
their own wishes.
Smith never was the calibre to be
President, regardless of his religion
and his attitude toward prohibition,
and leaving out tnese considerations.
His conduct in recent months has
shown-j to the country what Senator
Simmons saw four years ago, and it
is another instance of vindication that
has come in the course of time, but
after a long and useful career of a
trusted public servant was wrecked
and blasted.
But listen to Goerch:
"Somebody, at some time or other,
made the assertion that an honest
confession is good for the soul,
“If that is so. then I’d like to make
a confession with respect to the at
titude which I—together with many
other North Carolinians—took with
respect to former Senator F. M. Sim
mons in 1928.
"I abused Senator Simmons through
the columns of my paper; I inferred
that he was a traitor to his party; I
intimated that he was disloyal to the
people who had stood by him for
many years and whose feelings he
-should have considered; I hinted at a
great many other things.
"I wish to say that I am honestly
ashamed of what I wrote and said at
that time. It has taken me almost four
years to obtain an accurate opinion
concerning Senator Simmons and
what he did during the Alfred E.
Smith campaign. As I see things to
day, Fumlfold S. Simmons is one of
the greatest living men that North
Carolina ever has produced. Instead
of reviling him for his stand in 1928,
I can now admire him for what he
did. I can appreciate his viewpoint
and I can understand his actions at
that time. Senator Simmons wa3 eter
nally and everlastingly right. Alfred
E. Smith was not the man for Presi
dent of the United States. He never
was and never can be. Senator Sim
mons had the courage to express his
convictions. Shrewd politician that he
was, he knew without doubt that his
stand would mean his political death.
But he never hesitated; he never
wavered. He did his duty as he saw it,
and he did it fearlessly.
“I admire Senator Simmons. I ad
mire him just as heartily today as I
abused him in 1928. Somehow or other
[-although I am not in a position to
speak for any one else—l believe that
there are a great many other people
in North Carolina who feel as I do
about him.”
I Whether any of the Federal aid road
money comes to this county or not,
it is good to know that some millions
of it will at least be expended in
North Carolina. There is one project
in which Vance and Franklin coun
ties are vitally interested that ought
to benefit by this allocation of gov
ernment funds, and that is the high
way from Henderson to Louisburg by
way of Epsom.
This stretch of road has been under
State maintenance for some years,
long before the State Highway Com
mission was given the responsibility
for upkeep of all public highways in
the State. It is an important artery
es travel, and is perhaps the principal
! avenue for traffic headed to Eastern
North Carolina from this section and
the territory that lies just to the west.
For more than a year rock and
gravel has been piled along the right
of way in preparation for the event
ual improvement of the road, but the
• work has not yet reached that stage,
j other than grading and the straight
ening out of the route to eliminate
hazardous curves on the Franklin
county side.
We have no idea what the cost
would be to put this tar and gravel
composition on the road from Hender
son to Louisburg. Certainly It would
be less now than it would have been
a few years ago. Until now the
money has not been available, but It
would seem that sufficient funds
■might be squeezed out of the millions
,ot dollars coming to North Carolina
between now and next June 30 to give
this stretch of highway the attention
it has long deserved.
The proper authorities of the two
counties might profitably direct their"
attentions to the matter, with a view
to having the State Highway Com
mission proceed with the work at the
’ earliest possible time. It could be done
1 before the wlner, and would furnish
i a highly desirable short route of com
, munlcatlon and travel that would be
: passable and in good condition the
• year around. Right now is the thus
for action to be taken, Morf the
> money is Ml allotted to other projects.
Hoover Fortune Cut From
Four Million To $700,000
President's Wealth AU Transferred to fteinh After
Heavy Losses In Business Ventures, S*yf Maga
zine Fortune; Burns* Mine Chief WetHl
New York, July 25—“ Unfortunate
Investments have combined with
generous t owar and
depression relief to reduce Herbert
Hoover’s personal fortune from $4,-
000.000 at the time of his retirement
imately $700,000 today” the magazine
from active business in 1914 to approx-
FAonUune declares in an article on
"The President's Fortune." In Its Aug
ust issue, which appeared today.
The $15,000 salary cut accepted by
the President teat week would have
caused an almost iirtperceptible drop
in his total income twenty years ago.
Today il means a reduction of about
thirteen per cent.
The largest single factor in the dis
sipation of Mr. Lfioover’s wealth, ac
cording to Fortune, was the luckless
Intercontinental Developpmenit Com
pany. which Mr. Hoover and a few
friends formed Jri 1920 with a capital
of $2,009,000 in common stock
$400,000 in preferred stock of which
Mr. Hoover owned about half. This
company lost $600,000 on the Wash
ington Herald alone.
Fortune’s article deals not only with
the dissipation of the Hoover fortune,
but with Its accumulation as well,
Ite’iing the profits which he made out
of each of the many mining promo
tions which he undertook between
1900 and 1914, but Mr. Hoover made
about three-quarters of his wealth.
Fortune estimates, from <{he Burma
mines. Which have turned out to be
the richest mines of their kind (lead,
silver, zinc and copper) in the world
and which Mr. Hoover was one of
Ihe first tlo estimate at their true
In June, 1900. Mr. Hoover found
himself in an anomologus position, in
which he represented both the Chi
nese government as chief engineer of
its bureau of mines for the provinces
of Chihli and Johol. and the English
irtinang engineer, operator and pro
moter, C. Algernon Morelng, who had
obtained for Mr. Hoover his position
with the Ohinece Government and who
was interested in getting control of
the Chinese Engineering and Mining
Company, the largest single com
mercial undertaking ia China.
The transfer of the mining company
to the British syndicate was consum
mated . No action in Mr. Hoover’s
engineering career has been more
loudly criticized n or more vehemently
defended than this deal which started
him on the road to wealth. But For

The knmedfcLte cause of Mr. Hoov
er's step to independence, Fortune
rtatee, had been his visit to Burma in
1907 to examine the properties of tfu*
newly promoted Burma Mines, Rail
way and Smelting Co., (afterwards
called Burma Mines, Ltd.) in which
he then held 3,445 shares. In 1913
he and R. Tllden Smith (connected
since 1906 with the various financial
promotions In which the Burma Mines
had been involved) formed the Inter
contentlnental Trust, in which each
owned one half, as a syndicate for
purchasing Burma shares. All of Mr.
Hoover’s holdings were rtansferred to
that company. The formation of the
Burma Corporation Ltd., a holding
company for Burma Mines shares was
a still later development. Successive
stock issues brought the total shares
of tihe Burma Corporation stock to
963,749, of which, according to For
tune, Mr. Hoover had total holdings
of over 215,000 Shares worth at 1914
market price, $1,141,465. He liquidat
ed his Burma holdings between 1915
and 1918 realizing about three million
dollars for them.
Number of Farmers From!
This Part of State To Go
There Shortly
With a reported promising outlook
for tobacco in Canada this year, a
number of tobacco growers of this sec
tion. including Granville county, arp
understood to have been employed to
help cure the weed. The trek to the
Canadian tobacco belt will get under
way shortly preparatory to the ap
proaching harvest.
North Carolina tobacco was intro
duced into Canada by Colonel Wil
liam T. Gregory, of Granville county,
and It is said that the belief there Is
that growers from this part of the
State are most successful in handling
the crop. One report is that about 300
will go from this section to the Cana
dian tobacco fields this year. The sea
son lasts frocnaix weeks to two
months. T
Groups are rtow being booked for
bus trips, which shades railroad fares
to some extent, though some will pro
bably go on the train. Some growers
are said to prefer the bus trip be- i

A couple of decades ago the Cana
dian tobacco crop was confined to
two or three counties, but in recent
years has erpanded to more than a
dozen Canadian counties where the
cHmate and soil are suitable. The
Canadian crop has grown to such pro
portions that It now has to be con
sidered as somewhat of a competitor
of the North Carolina crop.
