' Coal production' in the United States in November was reported as exceeding that of November,. 1931, for “The first month since the depres sion began ip which production ex ceeded production of the previous year.” ” I Textile mills of the district consum ed more cotton in November than in either October, 1932, or November, 1931. 1 Retail trade in departent stores in Novcimiber was “relatiMely” better than in October and wholesale trade was up to the seasonal level in most lines as compared with recent months A slight drop in batik deposits was noted and debts to individual accounts for five weeks ended Decefhber 14 showed a decrease of 2.5 percent as ctompared with the preceding five weeks, ended November 9. when usu ally a holiday seasona lincrease in debts is shown. . Employment showed no improve ment in November and December and there was some slight seasonal rise in unemployment, “chiefly as a result of inclement weather.” Tfobaeco markets sold much less weed in November than in the saime month a year ago. Prices paid grow ers were slightly better than in No vember 1931 and the grades of tobac co sold were better. Tobacco manuracuring declined fur ther in November except for snuff and general construction Work as reflect ed in building permits and contract awards continued In very small Vi ume. j We must remember that when Dar win proclaimed his theory of the ori gin of man —his age was a whiskered one of men. faded by a president of the United States. Is hfe a forward-looking man, or will he cling to the past until there is no future? ; Mr. Robsevelt is a comparatively ydnng man. He is only 51. His mind is not clogged up with the past. , iMJr. Roosevelt realizes the faith placed in him. In a remarkably frank article written by him for Cosmopoli-i tan fnagazine he says to the people of the United States: “Your news national leadership is going to restore the confidence that the majority of men and women in this country rightfully repose i n their OWn integrity and ability. It is go frig to bring about governmental ac tion to mesh more with the rights.4tnd the essential needs of the individual man and wettnan. It is going to bring about a greater personal security.

These are the battle orders imposed Upon myself and my party . . . “The new natonal leadership has al ready faced the facts in its economic campaign upon your major problems. It is going to continue to tell the truth about current conditions and their re lation to the future —A policy not pursued in immediate past history.’.’ There is the acceptance of the gauge. What is the truth? What hopes may we hold? How shall we lay o'tir course now? What is the road out?

Raleigh, Dec. 31—1A new form of unerfip loy rhe nt relief which he believes wifi be a sound investment is suggest ed by State Geologist It. J. Bryson. This is some form of "grubstaking” miners seeking to develop gold deposits in North Carolina. This would not only furnish work for many of the State’s unemployed, but would also aid in investigating more thoroughly j deposits of the precious Anfetal and ■ would help to determine more defi- j riitely the prospects of gold production on larger scale, Mr. Bryson said. •Ailready the gold belts of North Carolina are liberally sprinkled with I CROSS WORD PUZZLE ■ ■ ■ • - rnmiiiSMiiaii 1 2- 3 A- 5.6. 1 $, 9 IO 7\* 12 .- - —■ —• —— ■— ■■■■ • . ——; —.— __ 3 , 14 , 1 7£““ -777 iKH -y ! j>. - n i 1 “1“. g* ae, jjjo |« »1< I* L-Ms --ii—-=Ci-II izmiipfiii: 1 ■. j ! ! <‘i j’ HI 111 ■ 111 MM MM.

Much of this ac tivity, he believes, has resulted from the financial condition of the country. With gold mines having been active at some stage of history in 31 of the 100 counties of North Carolina, State Geologist Bryson believes that the op portunity so rcomm'ercial production with the use of more modern methods of mining should be more thoroughly investigated. i Gold is one product in which there can scarcely be an over-production and which always finds a ready mar ket. Mr. BrysOn believes no time is more suitable for encouraging this ac tivity than the present. With the gold production of the world having slumped materially dur ing the past few years, Mr. Bryson believes with many economists, that some means of increasing the supply 1 nummmmmmmmsmrng 10— One of the U.
