C.,) DAILY DKPATCH FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 198* ' John Hicks And Lumberton Friend Write On Election A series of letters passing between John F. Hicks ,of this city, and an Intimate friend of his in Lumberton constitute ‘“richest" comments on the recent presidential election that have as yet appeared In print. Mr. Hicks Is in Lumberton much of the time during the tobacco season, and rooms at the home of B. R. Small, who is just as rabid a Democrat as Mr. Hicks is a Republican, though Mrs. Small is a Republican, according to Mr. Hicks. The latter accuses Mr. Small of calling in the help of L. R. Varser. prominent Lumberton attorney and former State Supreme Court justice, in writing his letters in this case. Mr. Hicks and Mr. Small were In Lum berton a few days before the election and each claiming the world with a fence around it for his favorite can didate for president. Mr. Small prom ised to write Mr. Hicks on Wednes day after the election, and he did. and in that way this series of letters be gan. They follow: Wednesday Night. Dear Mr. Hicks: Congratulations on your new presi dent.JPm sure that in the next four years Mr Hoover will taste some of his prosperity. I hope the election has not put you in bed so bad that you cannot wiite me and tell me where the other states that were going for Hoover have gone. We can only find >ix states that w'ent for Mr. Hoover hut thought maybe you could help us solve the problem. When 1 think of four more years under Mr. Hoover but I don't have to think, of Mr. H«M>ver The Honorable Franklin D. Roosevelt will occupy the White House for the next four years. I'd be glad if you could be here Sunday to see me wear my new suit I couldn't afford to wear a new one under Hoover. Write and tell us if you are able to be out after the election. Sincerely. B. R. SMALL Henderson, N. C., Nov. 21. 1932. Dear Mr. Small: It is a good thing that your name is Small, for were it anything else you could not possibly get in the hole that you will have to crawl in the next four years. I am delighted to know that you were able, while Mr Hoover is still in office to get a new suit of clothes, lake good care of them, nurse them like they were new born babes, for they have got to last you FOUR YEARS. Yes. Franklin will occupy the White House for the next four years, and at the end of that time those six states you mention will have multi plied to at least forty-six and the other two will crawl in the little hole behind you. and together you will at tempt to cover up your shame and nakedness. Yes, I got out after the election, a little worse for wear, but with my head and my tail up. my tail curled, ready to tuck between my legs after March the fourth, when you and .all the other little jackasses will be braying your heads off. Bray on it wont be long, for when on March 4th. 1936 the old G. O. P. Ele phant makes one snort Jackasses will be flying through the air like gnat 3 before a whirlwind, blown to where the "Woodbine twineth and * the Whangledoodle mourneth for the death of his first bom." I wish I couid see you, for .1 could tell you so tnuCh more than I can write, and it would be so convincing that you would blush behind your ears for your dear little Jackass. Yours truly. J. F. HICKS. Lumbsrton, N. c., Nov. 26, 1932, Mr. J. F. Hicks, Henderson. N. C. My Dear Mr. Hicks: I have your letter of the 21st. inst, and have carefully noted the con. tents thereof. I am attempting to give you a paragraphical answer to same. In /our first paragraph you men tion a possibility that I might need a small hole to crawl in within the next four years. You indicate that you believe it will be a small hole. Under these circumstances) It will undoubtedly be more trouble to get in the hole than it has been for the last four years. My experience and the ex perience of over a hundred million others during the PAST FOUR YEARS has been that it has been im possible to keep out of the large hole hole that Hoover dug for us. *ln your second paragraph you men tion my last suit of clothes and sug gest that they umst last four years, i still have two or three suits left from that era of Democratic pros perity which was engineered by Wooddow Wilson. They have stood me well through the twelve years of Re publican Mellonerity, and will 1 be lieve carry me until the re-election of 1 ; rnnklin. In your third paragraph you men tion several things. I agree that Franklin will occupy the White House for the next four years. I also feel confident that during this time he wi paddle r. r . own cm o* and r.ot as* Hoover to show him the way to land. Hoover asked him last week. As to the six states that managed to out count Franklin. I am sure that if they will be de loused and will show a desire to go straight, they will be allowed to come into the fold in the next election under a sort of proba tion agreement. As for the Jackass comment. I cite you to the time about two thousand years ago, when the greatest man of all time, rode in to Jerusalem on the back of a Jack ass and was joyously received by the populace as their Saviour. Since that time the tide has ebbed and flowed, men have come and gone, the little streams have gone out to the sea, the Woodbine has twined, the Whange doodle has wept over the loss of its firat born, and now, when every thing seemed loat. and when it looked as if no cloud bad a silver lining, a rift is seen through the deepening gloom, and again the populace has tpen joy ously awakened by the proverbial jackass who is bearing on bis back, franklin and relief for us all. To you and the few others who likewise pinned their faith on sinking "sands of the G. O. P. Ele phant 'I say, be of good cheer, keep a stiff upper lip, turn your eyes to the rising sun, have yourselves fumi gated and with your ears and tail erect come to us like a man and say, I hive been blind, I could not see. Like the prodigal son. I wandered afar off. but now I can see and I pray that I may be as one of your hum blest servants. Only let me come into your fold and prove myself that I may not have to again eat the husks with the swine. When you have done this, we will not bring out the ring and the purple garment to throw upon you. but will grid you in the garments of prosperity and tell you, go prove yourself and a full dinner pail awaits you. Mourn not al>out the Elephant, he will be put In the stable just vacated by the jackass, and will be taken care of and kept ils a warning to our posterity, so that if they in time to come should wander off after false gods, they can be shown the error of their ways and saved from the folly of emulating the prodigals who pre ceded them. I regret that time prevents telling you more of the joys you may ex pect. When I see you again I shall be glad to give you the right hand of fellowship and welcome you into the fold. In the meantime, pin your trust on the follows lines: The curfew tolls the knell of parting Republican day, The Elephant herds wind slowly over the lea. The Hoover boys homeward plod their weary' way, And leave the world to Franklin and to me. Yours very truly. B. R. SMALL. If these few words of sun-shine have helped to dispel some of the gloom with which you have been sur rounded for the past four years, and you feel that you owe any thing to humanity in general, I suggest that you give this letter to the newspapers for publication, so that if there be others who like yourself have wan dered off after false gods, and are now realizing that they have been chasing a will of the wisp, they may also cheer up at the deliverance that has been given to them through the lowly jackass. They too. can enter the fold if they will be circumcised, fumi gated and wormed. LEGISLATURE MAY BLOCK CHANGE IN STATE TEXTBOOKS (Continued from Rage one. > deal of doubt as to whether or not this board will order the adoption of new geography texts at this time, since most of those familiar with the situation agree that if all the 325,- 000 children in the fourth to seventh grades, inclusive, should be required to buy new books next year, the total cost to parents would amount to ap proximately $300,000. It is also point ed out that a change in books now would involve the junking of all the geography books now in use. which otherwise could be used over and over again. Members of the new General As sembly have been following the text book controversy for several weeks and many of them are opposed to making a change at this time on the grounds that this additional outlay for new books at this time is not warranted. One member, here yester day. intimated that if the board of education adopted new books now that the General Assembly might en act legislation annuling the adoption and directing the retention of the present books.

If it de sired, it could take away from the board the power to adopt textbooks and place this power with some other age ncy. Indications are, however, that the board of education is going to move very cautiously before ordering the adoption of new textbooks next year. State Superintendent Allen has al ready stated that in his opinion the board will not adopt new books if the prices asked are more than half as much as the present books. But there is a trick in this state ment, in that it can be interpreted two ways. The present geography books are in a two-book series, the first book for the fourth and fifth grades selling for 89 cents and the second book for the sixth and seven !

The new books being urged are a four book series, requiring a separate book for each grade. Thus the new books for the fourth and fifth grades might cost only 44 ]-2 cents each, or half the cost of the present book, yet the books would equal the cost of the pre sent one book required in which case no saving would result. On the basis of bids submitted in the State of Georgia both for the books recommended for adoption here and the books now in use. the prices quoted on the books now in use here ranged from $1.44 to 25 cents less on the series «uiy of the other series according to figures obtained here. This difference in prices was on the four book as well as the two book series. So unless the publishers of these other books cut their prices down much lower than they did in Georgia in September, the prices on the books now in use will be materially lower.
