North Carolina laws did not require

pers for such a purpose, the supreme
court said to have ruled that a muni
cipal building is a necessity.
The ordinance was introduced at

first reading. Another meeting was
called at 11:50 Wednesday and the or
dinance again read to the councilmen,
who did ot hesitate in passing it.
At an adjourned meeting of the
board Jield last wek a resolution was
adopted, requesting Guilford county
representatives in the legislature to
introduce a bill giving the city council
authority to issue in the sum of $300,
000 bonds for the municipal buiuuug.
However, an investigation showed this
was not necessary and no will be pre
sented for the approval of legislators
donw at Raleigh. The ordinance en
acted makes it lawful to issue bonds
not exceeding $250,000.
When actual construction work on
the municipal building will begin is
not known at the present, but it is
indicated that no time will be lost.

Postal Authorities
Say Mail Early
H. F. Cooper, Local Assistant Post
master, Urges People to
Co-Operate
H. F. Cooper, assistant postmaster
at High Point, Monday called atten
tion tothe fact that great effort was
being made by the postoffice depart
ment this year .to avoid the "day be
fore Christmas rush" of mailing par
cels, and to this end more publicity to
the "Mail Early" slogan is being given
than ever before.
"It is the sincere wish of the local
postoffice thalr the public will cooper
ate with us in getting eevry parcel
through on time and to avoid a sin
gle disappointment to any one," Mr.
Cooper said.
The following poem was composed
by a postoffice clerk:
The Christmastide is drawing near,
When parcel post looms high,
The clerks and postmen plead with
you;
Mail Early, is their cry.
Of course you want your friends
get
to
d
Their gifts by Christmas day,
And Uncle Sam will back you up
If you mail them right away.
But if you keep on waiting
Until the last few days,
There'll be conjGrestion in the mails
And terrible delays.
Jut think how disappointed
The kiddies all wou;d bex
If your present came too late
To hang on the Christmas tree.
Your gifts need not be opened
If a paster you will use;
""Don't open until Christmas,"
Is a seal that you should choose.
I wonder if you realize
The hardships of the clerks
If you neglect to mail this week,
And thus your duty shirk.
And picture the poor postmen
Laden down with shoulders lame;
For altho 'tis Merry Christmas
They must all work just the same.
So remember, friends, mail early,
If you'd spread the Christmas cheer,
Mail Early and Mail Often
And delays you need not fear.

IN THE CITY
For several years H. U. Oakes of
this city has beat all comers in the
way of raising one-year-old porkers.
It is an easy matter for him to raise
500-pounders in 10 months, which is
not easily accomplished by the unin
formed or amateur in raising hogs.
This year he had two thoroughbred
big bone Poland China pigs which he
bought 10 months ago at 8 weeks old
from his sister Jin Davidson county. He
killed them Monday and they tipped

Old North State
Has Good Crop
White Birth Rate in
the State Last Year
Highest in the Union
Washington, Dec. 12. North Caro
lina has the highest birth-rate for the
white population of all the states in
the union. This was disclosed last
night in figures published by the
federal bureau of the census. Njrth
Carolina also almost led in the birth
rate among the- colored races, being
exceded only by Washington and Cal
ifornia. In effect', the Tar Heel state leads
all in 3xth the white and colored birth
rates because there are few negroes in
v,aiiiornia ana wasnington, and the
comparison" is hardly worth while.
Censsu bureau figures show that in
1920 there were 81,407 births . in
North Carolina, as compared with
78,8,54 in the year 1919. The rate of
births per thousand of population was
81.6 per cent in 1920; 29.1 per cent
in iih; 30.2 per cent in 1918, and
30.9 in 1917.
The rate of births per thousand f
population im nearby states for the
year 1920 is given as follows:
South Carolina, 28.2 per cent; Vir
ginia 28.3; Maryland 24.8 per cent.
The birth registration area' for
which figures are given , includes 28
states and the District of Columbia.
Birth statistics have not yet been ex
tended to all of the states, but of the
commonwealth enumerated North
Carolina showed the highest rate and
Tar Heels appear to be obeying the
injunction to, multiply and replenish
the earth.
An Interesting Comment
The census bureau makes the fol
lowing intereesting comment on its
figurse:
"The bureau of census announces
that in the year 1920 there were 1,
508,874 births reported within the
birth registration area, which includes
28 tsates and the District of Colum
bia, the estimated population of this
area on July 1, 1920, being 63,659,
441, or 59.8 per cent of the total pop
ulation of the United States.
"The birth rate was 28.7 per one
thousand population, which is consid -
Lbly higher than the rate (22.3
per ct) for the previous year, but
i9 below the rate (25.0) for 1916
which may be iooked upon as a mor
norma xronir it- nvoaH fhA fliv
enza epidemic and the entrance of the
United States into the war.
"For 1920, the highest birth rate
(31.7) for the white population is
found in North Carolina, and the low
est (18.3) for California, while for
the colored (which includes negroes,
Indians, Chinese and Japanese), the

persons in securing houses for rent.
In regard to the housing situation the
secretary, F. J. Sizemore, has writ

The letters were mailed last week
and several replies have been re
ceived, enabling the chamber to ob

letter mailed by Secretary Sizemore :i
"It is evident that High Point is
in need of houses and rooms to take
care of its growing population and to
take care of workers needed in our
growing industries.
"The chamber of commerce hasbeen

Bruce Craven Effigy '
Lynched by Columbia
at Which Three Effiges Are
Lynched
New York, Dec. 12. Pictures re
ceived by the New York World depict
ing the results of a Ku Klux Klan
party near Columbia, S. C, show that
the effiigy of Bruce Craven, North
Carolinian, whose expose of the or
South Carolina Kluckers Have Party
ganization was published in the Daily
News, was "lynched" by the members
of the organization.
According to the special dispatch to
the World, reports of a lynching in
the woods near Millwood, a small town
outside of Columbia, sent police and
newspaper men of Columbia hurrying
in that direction near midnight last
baturday. They found two fully cloth-
I ed
trees
and orift lvinir in th rnnrl flno woo
marked "Bruce Craven," another
"Henry P. Fry," and still another "C.
Anderson Wright." Craven, of Trin
ity, N. C, a former grand goblin of
the Ku Klux klan, denounced the or
der last summer. Fry, a former klea
gle,, was a figure in The World's ex
posure of the klan. Wright, a former
goblin in the klan, was'a' witness be
fore the house committee in Septem
ber. Nearby the police found a huge
fiery cross, the emblem of the K. K.
K. On. either side were posted . signs.
One said:
"Bruce Craven, N. C: We would '
hang you, Bruce, but you are not
worth the rope it would take to do it."
Another bore this:
"Henry P. Fry, of Tenn.: Thirty
pieces of silver bought Judas Iscariot.
We congratulate you on raising the
price." t
A third said:
"C. Anderson Wright, of Ga,: You
will die of loneliness and grief, as did
Benedict Arnold."
A second plaacrd by the Craven ef
fiigy read:
"American mothers will gather
their skirts abou them as they pass
you. Not even the dust of their feet
will settle on you."
By the Fry effigy was a placard:
"American youngsters will cast
stones upon you as they pass. you.
Little American girls will make faces
at you all of the days of your life."
To the right of the fiery cross were
four signs Of Warning to the commu-
Uity in general. One read
We are gong to clean this com
munity. Thieves and thugs beware."
Negroes were singled out in the
others, one of which said:
"Law-abiding, hard-working and re
spectful negreos have nothing to fear
from us."
A second warned:
"Nigger womh, get in the kitchen
and over the wash tubs."
The third said:
"Niger men, get in the fields and
shop. No loafing allowed anywhere."
That was all. By the time the po
lice arrifed on the scene, it is pre
sumed, all the grave kluxers were
home in bed.
Large Firm Wants
Factory Built Here
Secretary F. J. Sizemore, of the
High Point rhamber of commerce, re
ceived a letter Thursday from a large
manufacturing corporation in Illi
nois, seeking information concerning
this city with a view of probably es
tablishing a factory here.
The letter was written by the man
ager of the company, who asked
Secretary Sizemore to furnish freight
rates from High Point to several cities
and towns in the United States. The
letter said the firm for sometime past
had been considering opening a fac
tory here in view of the fact that
High Point had been extensively ad
vertised as a great furniture manu
facturing center.
The company produces davenports
and couches.
