President -Hoover has been urging a program of this sort ever since he ; has been in tbe White House. Now is his last chance. The subject is «p --i propriately before the country, with ! the present uproar over European i debt repayments and defaults and Dr.: I Klein has been one of Mr. Hoover's j ablest spokesmen, dating baek to tne > period of the Californian’s own in j cumbency as head of the commerce I department, and the doctor's, as his ! director of foreign and domestic bus ! incss activities. I The plan has certain plausibilities. On the opposite hand, it has the se ! rious objection hatt its adoption nec essarily would involve international negotiations, with the United States as a participant and seldom in Am erican history has Uncle Sam sat i down at an international conference | table without losing his eye teeth hc | fore getting up from it. It also comes with a doubtful grace j from a president under whose ad ! | ministration the finishing touches j were put to the destruction of the ; same foreign trade which it is now j sought to rt vn i hy ihe proposed con | cessions To argue successfully that the Unit ed States is otherwise than prominent among those responsible for the world \ wide economic jam is impossible. The war ended with Ihe erstwhile allied pow« rs in debt to the United States, in gold to ai, ii mourn great ly exceeding the total of all the gold on earth. It was obvious that a set tlement would have to ho effected hy a swapping back and forth of credits which called for the maintenance of brisk buying and selling between the intetestitt countries. This was the juncture at which the United States, it, 1t»22, clamped on the Fordnoy-McCumbei tariff, with the avowed intention of shutting out im ports. following it up the Fordney- McCumber schedule not proving quite as airtight as was desired with the Hawlcy-Smoot tariff, early in the Hoover administration. That turned the trick; imports slumped like a plummet. Europeans naturally resented it Hoovers Off on Fishing Trip ; I H Sm SLJHH "■BHffinlil' ' IKflflfj*'' m i - •*'.

For the next four yeari they will remember their friend# I from the White House. and began adopting retaliatory tariffs Another of Mr. Hoovers' ambitions throughout his entire presidential term, has been to induce the leading world powers to join the United States in an armament reduction agreement. Pacifistically speaking. disarma ment does not promise as much as many good folk appear to think it does. Two countries, disposed to fight, always could find weapons. For example, lacking arnjorclads, they could fight with merchants ships Rut there is this difference — Merchant vessels are useful ves sels in peacetime, and armorclads, ordinarily, are of no use whatever; they a.v pure wast«, described in economic terms. Nevertheless, if other countries insist on having them. Uncle Sam must have a fleet. If the others would scrap theirs, he would need none, and it would be an enor mous saving. These, notably, are two of the con cessions in return for which certain persons contend that perhaps it would bo worth Uncle Sam's while to make additional reductions in his claims against Europe ~ 1. Freer markets for his exportable surpluses of many sorts 2. A treaty enabling him to econ omize on warships.

For more than a half-century the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, was one of the South’s outstanding church leaders. He built churches, founded Hos pitals and schools and wrote—books, monographs and occasional papers on North Carolina history*: Secular and religious. He was head of his church in this State for 39 years. A biographer said of him. “his man ner in repose is suggestive ot the literary recluse and his manner in ac tion is just as suggestive of a min isterial David among the Goliaths of worldliness and apathy.” Bishop Cheshire was horn in Tar boro on March 27. 1850. He was a son son of the Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire. D. D„ who tor more than 50 years was rector of Calvary Epis copal church at that place. He received degrees of bachelor of arts and master of arts from Trinity College. Hartford. Conn., and In 1872 was admitted to the bar by the Su preme Court of North Carolina He practiced bnly a short time- one year in Baltimore and five years at Tar boro-before turning to the church. Bishop Cheshire's rise in the church was rapid. Within two years he had been ordained to the priesthood and a year later. 1881. became rector of fcSt. Peter's Episcopal church in Char lotte. The young rector entered his work at Charlotte with all the energy-he possessed. A new church edifice was erected; St. Michaels and All Angels churches were organized and work was begun on St. Martins and In an adjoining community his missionary work led to the organization of a church. He was active and influential in the establishing of St. Peters hos pital and the Good Samaratan hos pital in Charlotte, the latter the first in the State for Negroes. With the late Rev. Edwin A. Os borne, of Charlotte, Bishop Cheshire established Thompson Orphanage in that city, and it has grown into one of the leading homes for orphan chil dren in the State. His rise to the head of his church followed active membership in the diocesan convention. On October 15. 1893. he was conse crated bishop coadjutor of the dio cese. becoming bishop two months lat ter "upon the reath of Bishop Lyman. Upon his rise to the head cif the church Bishop Cheshire moved to Ra leigh. An important feature of Bishop Cheshire’s Episcopate was the found ing In Raleigh of St. Mary’s school by taking over a private enterprise In 1897. Bishop Cheshire was twice married. His first wife who died in 1897. was Miss Annie Huske Webb of Hillsboro. Six childien were born to this union. His second wife was Elizabeth LansdaJe Mitchell of Maryland. There were no children by this marriage. He was an active member es the North Carolina Historical Society and in 1931 served as its president. CONDEMNED MAN IS TAKEN TO RALEIGH Asheville.
