DAILY LENTEN DEVOTION I PPEPAPEi.tY (The Rev. Gains Glenn Adkins, D. D. Sponsored by The Federal Council of the Churches of Christ In America Coyright 1933 THURSDAY, MARCH 16— (Read Psalm 26:1, 2,4, 5 8) Tests for Selfl-Testing It is better to ask to beexamined than to have judgment thrust upon us. How else shall we discover our weakness and short comings and learn !how to do better? So the twenty-six Psalm suggests great tests which, if we can pas®, assure us of Divine ap proval: gratitude to Godi, for His lav ing kindness, to begin wilth; then the love of truth and then the company we keep. These are simple tests but •they go deep When the goodnss of the Lord is always before our eyes, we shall be both humble and prasie ful. Those who love truth will main tain an integrity of mind and motive. And since a man is| known by the company he keeps, those who have , no fellowship with the false or the wicked will be fit for the fellowship of the saints. Prayer: Grant unto us. O Lord, that knowledge of ourselves wEtihout which we ca nneither rightly repent nor seek to amend our lives. Illuminate for us the ways of life and the beaulty of charaoter by which we may so judge ourselves that we m|ay not too great ly fear Thy judgment of us. May we offer ourselves wholly and without any fear to the searching of Tihy love, humbly accepting Thy rebukes and' seeking only to be what Thou wouldst have us be. In His name Who knew what Wlaa in the hearts of men and knowing still loved them. Amen.

PROBLEM SOLVED “Dinner at Eight” Is a good, bostof flce title but a difficult one for the atre-goers to live up to, j This is one hit show, too, where the manogemem earn scarcely complain about the late arrival nuisance. And nobody can have dinner at eight and 1 get there on time. I hear a special alpenstock is being perfected for climbing over seat, fid patrons’ knees after the curtain rise. Meanwhile resaUnaetfig hostesses have devised a plan to meet the dis inclination of guests for dining at 7 p. m., which, in this ward, is equiv alent to the middle of the afternoon. Now theatre parties gulp a cocktail (tomato judee or grape), nibble the biaarre tidbits currently passing as 'hor d’oevres and go to the show. Around mlidnighit they gather for more substantial fare. I know a dramatic crtiltic who has had no dinner in a week because he has attended opening ntghits under the wings of Park avenue hostesses and has had to get back to the office and diagnose the show while other mem bers of the parties were slitting down at table.

M’FADOEN FORESAW CRISIS FOR BARKS But Pennsylvania Congress man Was Jeered In House, Then Muzzled By CHARLES P. STEWART Central Press Staff Writer Washington, March 16. —Well, Am erica has had its banking crisis, and how the story of it can be written. It can be written no more accurate ly than it was foretold by Congress man Louis T. McFadden of Pennsyl vania three years ago. But McFadden not only could persaude no one to lis ten to him, he was muzzled! He had been recognized as a finan cial authority in first class standing; Was chairman, at the time, of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Banking and Currency; a welcome contributor, on fiscal subjects, to the country’s foremost peiodicals—but he (had the temerity to picture the trend Os course the great interests he at tacked were furious- The Pennsylvanian had hi 3 resour ces at stake then in a prosperous fur- Initure factory in his home town of Canton, Pa. The concern went on the !f : <nanciai rock:\ (immediately. “It cleaned me,” McFadden says simply. But he repeated his warning. He had, as a witness before his committee, the chairman of the Na tional City bank of New York, Char les E. Mitchell. Much more recent testimony of Mitchell in answer to Senatorial grilling (too late to avert the catastrophe) forced his resigna tion from his various Wall Street posts. But when McFadden originally had Mitchell before the committee, in terference by his associates blocked answer to every significant question hut by their chairman. Reports that McFadden had suffer ed a mental collapse were circulated throughout the Capitol. He was jeered when he arose to speak in the House of Representa tives, and ruled out of order when he persisted- H:'s demands for an inves tigation were quietly pigeonholed. Conservatives and ultra-progressives joined hands in an effort t,o defeat his |his renomination in his -fifteenth Pen nsylvania district. All this pressure failed to stop him. He was gaged personally just be fore the crisis stryqk. He .told; me, “I have a message of transcendent im*or£&nce to the country, and they wop’L let me deliver it.” NEW YORK THINKS INFLATION AVERTED Unbalanced Budget Much More Dangerous; Big Accounts Spurned Cea<ra! Press Staff Writer New York, March 16. —Even New York bankers smile over the seating of an “ex-convict” in lhe national (House of Representatives. For ba it ■known that Francis H. Shoemaker, congressman-at-large from Minnesota served a term in Leavenworth peni tentiary for calling a banker a “rob ber of orphans and widows”. Shoe maker, editor o fa country newspaper, made the social error of addressing is. etter to the banker in that manner instead of saying it to his face or exclaiming in a stump speech. A fed eral judge decreed, a year ago, that ’.Shoemaker had to serve a year and a do.y for sending “scurrilous’ libelous and defamatory matter” through the .mails. , Some bankers are saying that Re presentative Shoemaker’s remarks are mild to a few choice remarks they have heard. A year makes consider able difference. At any rate, Shoe maker, Farmer-Laborite, is such a hero that he won a majority of 317,- 000 votes. ** * * NO INFLATION. , Wall Street believes that President Rosevelt and William H. Woodin, sec iretary of the treasury, will keep such a strict control that there will be no inflation, , .... . " For one thing, mere winding up of weak banks will throw so many se curities on the market as to weigh it down. And large carry-over surpluses of grains are looked upon as holding down grain prices. Wtetll Street terms an unbalanced budget as more dangerous inflation than any new currency issue. The new currency merely serves as a medium of exchange in putting into circulation immobilized, or frozen as-j sets. * * * BIG ACCOUNTS SPURNED Bank accounts of large corporations may go begging hereafter. Colonel Leonard P. Ayres, noted bai.k economist, explains why: “It would be an over-statement, but one containing much essential truth, to say that the treasurers of the na tional corporations transferred bank balances out of the interior to New York (in their fright) until they closed down the banks of the Interior cities for normal functioning; and then hurriedly transferred funds out cf New York and back to the in terior until they closed down the New York banks.” * SALKTAX Taxpayers League There )Wrlte Pointedly to Their Representatives Pinehurst, M<ardh 16 —Senators Henry L. Ingram and Ryan Mcßride and Representative Angus B. Cam eron wthio represent Moore County in the General Assembly have received identical Itters from the Moore Coun ty Taxpayers League protesting against the sales tax wlhiicih Governor Ehringihaus, in his message of March 13th, urged the legislature to adopt. The text of the letters is as follows:} Pinehurst, N. C., March 14, 1933. I feel that I am warranted in say ing that the message of March 13th from. Governor Ehringihlaus to the General Assembly is a shocking (Dis appointment to most the taxpayers of Moore County. On February 27th there was deliv ered! to you- a petition signed by 2807 taxpayers of Moore County praying for a reduction of taxes. On March 2nd about two thousand' representative citizens from all over the State met in Raleigh in support of a resolution that the budget be bal anced by a redaction of expenses and not by the imposition of new taxes. Many of your attended this meeting ' : ; . In our notional affairs the presi dent —declaring that the present em ergency is equivalent in its seriousness to the invasion of our soil by an enemy army—has demanded extraor dinary powers to enable him to re duce drastically the cost of govern ment. It can not,, therefore, be anything less than a shock to th© people of this counity to learn that our Govern or—utterly disregarding the procla mation of the President of the United States and the prayers of the people of the State —demfcmds that our leg islature imposed a tremendous new; tax on the poverty Stricken farmery and on the paralyzed industries of North Carolina. <! dm his message Governor Bhring hous has begged the legislature not to crucify our governmental institu tions. ; In the name of* the taxpayers of Mlaore County I beg you to use the powers of your office ; to prevent the crucifixion of the people and the in dulsurles of this State. 11 Your constituents in Moore County will be grateful if you will advise them through me, of your proposed action. Faithfully yours, '' Jesse W. Page, Chairman of the- Executive ComjhMrtee. Commenting- on this letter, Mr. Eld gar Ewing, map age q of the Moore County Taxpayers League, said: “Those taxpayers Who . feel that Mir. Page has orretly expressed thefr at titude on the proposed! new taxes Would do well to write to their Sena Farewell To Arm*! tors and Representatives arid say so. It is high time that the various coun ty taxpayers league should get to gether to cooperate in the attainment of their common purpose.” WHIPPING POST IS LOST IN ASSEMBLY But Increasing Population of Prisons Cct.itinues To Worry This Legislature . ; Daily Dispatch Bureau, In the Sir Walter Hotel. BY J. r. BASKERVILI.. Raleigh, March 16. —The problem of over-population at State’s Prison and | the prison camps has been a constant worry to the General Assembly since it convened, and lately the suggestion has been heard on several sides that the whipping post might be brought into use to make rime unpopular. 'However, the group which is advocast ing this as a solution constitutes a small minority, and there is no chance of such legislation getting through the present General/ ac cording to informed opinion here. Such a recourse is, of course, op /posed by welfare and other interests, who point out that North Carolina took a great stride forward when it abolished the county chaingang sys tem—a thing that has brought much unfavorable publicity to certain other states —and put the county roads un der State supervision. Nevertheless, despite this overwhelming sentiment against corporal punishment, there have been two serious attempts with in the past few days to get such leg islation enacted. i , ELIMINATIONS FOR DEBATES TO START Chapel Hill, March 56—Entrans in the 21st annual State High School Debat ing Contest will begin preliminary -competition March 31 in preparation for the final debates to be held at the University April 13 and 14. The •Winning team will be awarded the Aycock Memorial Cup. \ The suhject for debate this year is Resolyed: That North Carolina should adopt the sales tax as a feafciijre of its system of revenue. • - Senate Is (Willing r To Back Governor (Continued from Page One.) ■# the State government. The big fight that is impending in the upper house is over the form of sales tax that iehal‘l be adopted. Concentrate on House. WhMe the opponents of all forms of a sales tax, including the North Car olina Merchants Association, are con ceding nothing, and still predict that the General Assembly will never en •aet a sales tax, their powerful lobby -herd has given up hope of trying to organise the Senate against sales tax legislation, and is concentrating on the House of Representatives, where the opposition to a sales tax is much stronger. This is exactly the reverse of the line-up in 1931, when the merchants, lobby concentrated on the Senate, and Jet the House members alone- This isessiop.; this bulk of anti-sales tax -or ganization has - gone on in the lower branch, and little attention is being ipaid to the Seriate. * The comment of various members of the Senate on the governor’s Special message showed that it is overwhelm ingly back of his program. Among those who expressed their endorse ment of virtually everything the gov ernor had to say were such recogniz ed leaders in the Senate as Senators Moore, Mac/Lean, Bailey, Hill and Hinsdale. Senator Clement, who will , -fight to get his production tax bill through this General Assembly in lieu of either form of sales tax, also ap proved of most of the governor’s re commendations. The opposition to the program of an eight months term and a sales tax is negligible. The fight against this program will be made chiefly, it is now indicated, by Senator Gwyn, of Rockingham, who holds that a sales tax is not necessary, and by a few of the senators rrom the eastern agri cultural counties who are unaletr ably against putting the tax burden on “the little man” or the ‘‘honey handed sons of toil,” which they claim that a sales tax will do. This group, while they are not par ticularly favorable to either a general sales tax or a selected commodity tax such as will be pushed by Senator Hinsdale, look less bitterly upon a se -lected commodity tax, if there are no “necessities” included in the bill. The merchants, too, while they are fighting both forms of sales tax, pre- CROSS WORD PUZZLE li^lS 111 "S"" ™*7"*ST"S - ""“TT" itiirn □mil •4- is le I in ieT 19 20 si 2a “““ . —2a is ~~' ' “ 2e 'T// s7 “* 2a 23 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 39 ‘ 40 4-1 42 pp 43 44 4S ~ 4e 47 4a 43 so" “ ■ 1 : j 56 r - ™ ■ i,ib lb7 58 1 ■ill j 1— I K rLFi M I □ Ar A# t / 11— Newspapers >,j ACROSS 16—Mineral spring I — Ex >t 17—Courageous 19—Long 6—Tribe of Siouan Indians “* Arabian sleeveless garment 12—Faithful ?J~ht nCe , *•? a n f . - 6 Muse of amatory poetry Senator from Montana 29-Named 31-Look H—The Indian mulberry 33—Engagements 15—Aeriform fuel 17—Scold 35 —Obliterating 18—Follow diligently « 18—Trims with the beak, at E ® an birds their feathers River in Scotland 38—Conf6dcratg gcnorul 23—Understands 25—Lessen 40 —Kains and snows 27—Right (abbr.) ‘ simultaneously 28—Russian stockade 42—Abide 30—Affirms 32—Inclination 41—Sheep, the nahoor 31-Growing out * 47—Ancient Italian family 37—Pertaining to one s birth 19—Flat and narrow piece of Theatrical celebrities j, *> wood £ 41—Sun god /, ?: f t , .62—Rather than « 43—Religious ceremonies i 54—Kgel-billed cirdkoo ; ! 58—Half type Measure , ' f 46—hemale sheep ; 48—Years of adolescence j Answer to previous'puzzl# 50—Compass ])oint " . 51 r -ArtiSt> stands , " fe-'lilil 1 ""1 fSTsTI -53—The armpit iMjE.yg £ft^2J_E.R|jß^l ? 55—That is ((abbr.)

However, the tobacco interests are ligainst this sort of tax, as figures from other states which have adopt ed such a method of taxation show irrefutably that it cuts down tobacco consumption materially, and the to bacco people protest that North Caro lina should be the last State in the Union to tax what is its principal in dustry. There is a large bloc in the Senate which will fight the Hinsdale hill to the hitter end. Senate Deadlock Possible. Those who favor a general sales tax (are conceded to have a slight major ity in the upper house, but a coalition of those who opose both forms of rales tax and those who are not will ing to accept anything but the luxury tax might easily bring the Senate to a deadlock such as confronted it in 1931, it is now generally admitted.
