STEWART V -ft Tha puhkr ta sat Mkety So find out about K to a certainty, bat there are whispers that Presidential Private Secretary Lawrence Richey la re garded in White House circles as having overdone matters when he refused in writing to present to Mr. Hoover the protest presented at the executive mansion Aug. IS against the nae of troopa to drlvo the B. E. F. from Washington. It happens that this particular protest included the names of several persons of exceptional prominence and influence among Its 41 signers. Richey received It. If he simply had pigeon-holed It, It might have gone by default and never again bean mentioned. Where he appears to have erred was in notifying the signers by mail that “It is such a tissue of misrepresentations that I do not propose to present it to the pi^sident” Being in black and white, with Richey’s signature, naturally this communication was promptly pub lished. Now the question arises: "What business was It of Richey’s?” Many a president, to be sure, bas been willing to have, and actually has instructed his attendants to pro tect him against inconsequential papers, left at the White House — but not thia kind, with 41 notable citizens raising a row over it - . subway turnstiles, where the rubber insulations haven't been installed.

COMMODITY RISE THE BEST RELIEF Advance In Cotton And To. bacco More Than All Fed. eral Aid Funds Dally Dispatch Bureau, In the Sir Walter Hotel. FIT J . C. BASKERVILL. Raleigh. Sept. 6—The recent in creases in the prices of cotton and tobacco, with the corresponding in reases in the price of other ommod ities, has already meant more to North Carolina and other southern states than all the millions of dollars appropriated for so-alled “relief” by Congress, in the opinion of Frank Dun lap, director of personnel. If these prices will just increase a few more cents per pounds .the State will not need any money at all from these va rious “relief” agencies, he believes. “The idea that any lasting results can come from the millions of dol lars appropriated by Congress for the Reconstruction Finance Corporations and for road construction and direct relief, is entirely incorret, as I see It,” Dunlap said. ‘‘The nearly $6,000- 000 being spent by the government In North Carolina ofr new highway con struction. and which is being doled out at the rate of 20 cents and 30 cents an hour, is hardly a drop in the bucket. The same is true of any other money that may be obtained for di rect relief. It is little better than a dole and is only a temporary ’shot in Ihe arm’ that will soon wear off, leav ing things just as bad a3 they were before. "But when the prices of cotton and tobacco increase, even if only a few cents a pound, that brings lasting and permanent relief to hundreds of thou sands of people. It not only gives them some money for their labor and in vestment, but starts this money into circulation and creates a demand for hundreds of other commodities. "It is, of course, impossible to tall now whether these prices for cotton and tobacco are going to hold up. But indications are that a gradual Increase can bo expected from now on. And this Increase in the prices for basic commodities is going to mean moie than all the artificial relief plans that have been thought of." Memorial Service Had by M. E. Women The Lucy Closs Partner Missionary Society of the First Methodist church met yesterday with Mrs. E. C. Faris, at her home on Granite street, with Mrs. Faris. Mrs. G. W. Furqueron and Mrs. C.
