HOPE TO SETTLE (BY MAX ABERNETHY) Raleigh, May G. The appointment cf a staff of consulting surgeons for the Morganton heispital, who will serve free of charge, is first step of Gov ernor Cameron Morrison in his elforts to provide better meilical treatment for the unfortunate people who are under treatment in th" various hos pitals of the state. The consult ing board .for the western hospital, where forurteen hundred people are under treatment, is composed of Pr. J. E. Stokes of Salisbury, Dr. A. G. Brenizer of Charlotte, Dr. Henry F. Long of Statesville, Dr. J. T. Burrus of High Point, Dr. Henry Norris of Rutherfordton and Dr. R. M. Griffin of Asheville. In the opinion of the governor they are among the most prominent surgeons in the western part of North Carolina., These men will serve on the surgi cal staff of the Morganton hospital without pay. This will enable ;he people cf this institution to get treat ment from these surgeons free of charge- and it is believed will open the way for the establishment of med ical and surgical staff.-: for all of the other institutions. The governor has been very greatly pleased with the enthusiasm of the surgeons them selves for the plan and their desire to serve the state in this way. 1 will mean in the opinion of the governor, that the people who are under treat ment in the state institutions will get the best attention possible, without having to pay for it, for they are un able to bear the expenses. Later he expects to organize sur gical boards for the Raleigh and Goldsboro hospitals for the insane. This will be followed by medical boards for these institutions. The governor also expects to organize a board of eye, ear, nose and throat specialists for the deaf and dumb and the blind schools of the state. In this way .11 of the unfortunate peo ple of the state will get the benefit of the best surgical and medical tal ent in North Carolina without ad ditional pay for the governor wants to get these big men in the nrofes- 3y the Associated Press.

The union rjresentatives cited nu merous instances of increases in rents of houses during the past four months and declared that railroad pay should be increased rather than de creased. W. G.

By the Associated Press. Cleveland. O.- May 6. Aggressive furtherance of American trade in terests in the Far East was advo cated by; M. A. Oudin, of the Inter national General Electric Company, in an address before the eighth con vention of the National Foreign Trade Council here today. Mr. Oudin said in part: "The markets of the Far East con stitute ,the worlds greatest commer cial prize. If American business ex pects successfully to compete with ether nations it must exert itself pri marily in three directions. . First, it must freely cooperate iwith native business in local enterprises; second, it must liberally invest its surplus capital in the development of indus tries, na-tural resource's arid public works; and finally, it must insist that American economic interest be upheld by an American diplomacy as alert and vigorous as that displayed by other governments. "In carrying out this program. Chinese business should be made a partner, in investments we make in Chinese resouces and enterprises for the puUlic gooid ; Siberian,' business should participate in legitimate con cessions we may secure for the open ing up of Russia s great wealth, and Japanese business should be asked to cooperate. "If American business men are to withstand the increasing competition of the other commercial nations in the Far East, it is not sufficient that they should finance that trade. They must take an active part in the in dustrial and commercial life of the Far est. They must invest also in government loans for the economic rmhiiildincr of the countries there. 3 Suteh an opportunity may soon be offered bv the group of American fertilizers. They say the tenant farmers now have to borrow cash from usurers who often charge hie-h as 250 percent. This leavs the farmer so poor that A tnraion hnntpra known as the he cannot afford to buv the imple- cons0rtium. ments for deeper ploughing neees-l jf American business men seek sary to dry farming, to which oO-; the diplomatic support of their 000,000 acres of land are devoted.
