MINING CODE, 1653, FIRST IN AMERICA Durham, Aug. 12.—Industrial codes, an important feature of the national recovery program, are far from be ing a novehy in America, according to J. Lloyd Macham. University of Texas professor, author of the Duke uii[\l rsiity press ,volume on the Spanish economic conquest of north western Mexico, “Francisco de Ibar ra and Nueva Vizcaya.” A “Code of Mines” was decreed in 1563 definitely regulating the mining industry, protecting the discoverers of mines in <heir tenure and giving them decided economic advantages. Even earlier ordinances, it is pointed out were similar to modem codes and regulated the Spanish frontier policy regarding grazing industry and min ing labor.

THE REASON WHY— Geraniums are sacred to Mo hammedans is an eastern tradi tion that the Prophet Mahomet, when once he washed his coat, threw the garment over a mal low plant to dry. When the gar ment was taken away, the mal low had been transformed mi raculously into a magnificent geranium, a plant unknown be fore. It was first brought to western countries through Eng land, in 1534.

A The bank's service is for the benefit of all depos itors—not for the service of a few only. Citizens Bank and Trust Co. HENDERSON, N. C. “THE LEADING BANK IN THUS SECTION” Charlotte Editor Donates Writings To Duke Library Durham, Aug. 12. —Two interesting publications by Wade H. Harris editor of The Charlotte Observer, have been donated by the author to Duke univer sity and will be permanently pre served in the university library. The first, entitled “My School Days” presents a vivid picture of the author’s early education in North Carolina following the Civil War. Memories of his boyhood constitute an unusual re cord of conditions in the South at the time, as well as a literary work of extraordinary merit. Mr. Harris takes occasion in the book to pay a sincere tribute to the outstanding edu cators of the period, including Gen eral James H. Lane and B. Frank Rogers. In the second work given a place in the Duke library, Mr. Harris’ letters to his own paper, written during a tour of Europe in 1927 are collected under the title, “The Editor Abroad.” The North Carolina editor traveled with a party of 30 American editors through nine European countries. These editors were selected from va rious sections of the United States by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, pres ident of the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace, for the purpose of making personal observations of conditions and prospects in Europe. Mr. Harris’ keen observations and in teresting comments make the pamp hlet no tonly highly interesting read ing but of definite social and eco nomic value.
