STILL Mi DIVORCE EH fltS POSTPONED 1y the Associated Prs I'oughkeepsie, N. Y., llcnrincrs in the divorce James A. Stillnvan, the New banker, ajyainst the former other and all for the public. I have found in the postal service, as.iwill be found elsewhere, some officials whose conception of discip line is bordering; cn abjection. They have so lonjj; entertained the notion cf their own superiority, or of their own dignity, that they cannot com prehend a partnership relation of oflicial and employe, where kindness, June 1. suit by York "Fifi" rotter, were postponed today until June 7. Illness of Mis. Potter was the cause. courtesy and consideration are the very foundation of Rood discipline. I think this uronir oflicial attitude may be illustrated by citing the (nA that a certain oflicial wrote to a clerk who had appealed hin esse that he did not feel called upon to submit the case for consideration of the depart MBMBKH OP ASSOCIATED PKESS raMlahed by the Clay Printing Co. Bvery Bremlaf Except Sanday NOW FOR UNITY The Record does not helicve there have ten a time within recent years when there was more unity of purple in Hickory than there is at the pre? nt. This has been demonstrated by the interest shown in tlu Chamber of Commerce reorganization and hy the comparative ease with which the larger membership amounting in mfcney to about $4,500 a year for two years tand amounting in communiiy spirit to a million dollars. In com munity effort the resiult has been magnificent. The members followed this suc cessful canvass by electing a boaid cf directors who will give their time and attention to the work. They will take up a fight so ably carried on for community building by the old chamber, will have the hearty co operation of those directors who s ik ed to be relieved cf duties for a sea son and cf a larger circle of mt.n eted citizens. The chamber dragged through a period long enough to convince every good citizen that it was time to do something. Every member of the kmrd of di rectors, every member of the larger body, will have his ears open for suggestions to make Hickory and Catawba county better and gf.-aU-r. Good ideas will be tendered, weigh ed and acted upon. This ought to be the beginning of the best two years in the life of Hickory. It will be that if eery member does bis duty. "M I DSUMM EU M A DNESS" A GREAT PICTURE Aithur James, editor of the Moving Picture World after a pie-view of "Midsummer Madness" printed the following signed editorial in tide World. Great moving pictures are few, al though many- productions may be called excellent. "Midsummer Mad ness," the third important product ion created by William DeMille, stepvS into greatness and classifies it self by absolute merit a3 a superb entert linment. It has that fine virtue of being a complete dramatic structure to begin with. To this have been .added real acting, beautiful photography, a sense of taste and composition. It is unquestionably the greatest legiti mate dramatic production the screen has ever seen. ".Midsummer Madness,'' Is based upon Cosmo Hamilton's novel, "His Friehd and His Wife." Lois Wilson, Lila Lee, Jack Holt and Conrad Nagel are featured in this Paramount-Artcraft suDer special which will be shown at the Pastime theatre today and tomorrow. Re member Paramount and Artcraft pic tures shown exclusively in Hickory at the Pastime theatre. tnt. He said it was not deemed a ater of concern ( clerk what the attitude f the department wa; relative to his stand in the matter, es supervisory officials were held re sponsible for the proper administra tion of the service, under sucn jni atmosphere prevailing many officials naturally could not eerci.se human izing methods even though they heartily approved of them. Peisenal contact and gi ttinp: the otheis' viewpoint are the plain work tools one requites in fashioning a workinf body. I want credit to go to the person who does the work and I propose to see-that this its done. I want every person in the postal service to try to do a little letter each day the thing he has been doin I would rather a man would try to do a thing and make :i mistake than not to try at all. Some of our efficienc y lating syslems, no maiier now wi-u intended, have actually worked to penalize some w ho tried. j A clerk who finished his run with all mail worked received minus points for his mistakes, and he was at a disadvan tage over the 'clerk who was smart enough to protect "-his record and neg lect his work. We are enin to have a welfare derailment iusfc ss definite in its duties and certain in its functioning as the fiscal department or any other department. It' will be in charge of an individux.1 competent to look after it, doing nothing else, ivviry large industry in the country has adopted .welfare measures. This humanizing business is not original. It has been the definite trend of American busi ness for the oast generation. Just how far I can go with it m the post-oflice department I don't know, but it is certain that very much can be done, and not in any ! sense inlieu of wages. AH the things ithat are done successfully for the hvelfaie of the employes in other suc cessful businesses must be done as far as possible in this, the greatest ,,f nil Vmsinesw. Tf we can improve ! the spirit and actual conditions of jlishment, and it is just ss cedtain to ! the 300,000 men and women w ho do this job, that in itself is an accomp lishment, and it is just as certain to bring a consequential improvement in the service ss tomorrow's sun. We are eVing to deal the same way with those outside the postal ! service who have complaints against ;it. We are going- to hear them all. ; They are going to get the same just ! consideration as every postal worker. 1 Co-operation outside and inside the service is our slogan. NEWS FROM GUNPOWDER ' DISAGREE WITH HARVEY Dr. Plato Durham, who can wield a pen or use his voice with equal facility, went after Cel. George Harvey in terms that the ambassa dor to the court of St. James will understand. On the very day that Trofessor Duiham, speaking in Char, lotte, was denouncing Harvey's pil glim dinner speech in London, Pres ident Harding was rededicat.ing this nation to the great principles which sent the American soldier overseas, and declaring that by striking across the sea in the world war America had sanctified her faith in free in stitutions for people everywhere. In his address Dr. Durham said? "Were Mr. George Harvey a hun ' dred" times ambassadorJ'to ihe court of St. James, I still would say that he spoke with the tongue of Ananias and-with the heart; of Judas. His sen timents shall not coil like a xMont. erpent over the ashes of our devot ed dead: he shall not lift the white crosses at their head among the Ig nominous trophies of materialistic cynicism.

POSTAL MORALE Postmaster General Hays's Plans for Co-operation (Postmaster-General Will H. Hays in tho Outlook.) Industrial managers are far ahead Of the postal managemtnt in applica tion of the co-operative principle be tween employer and employe. They have found its application brings not only great personal satisfaction, but highly profitable gain3. There can not possibly be anything to take the place of contentment of the workers. Their spidit must be right. Give me this in the postal service and we can work wonders. WV? all know, if we know human nature at all. that it is a pleasure to work to do our best if we are appreciated. We must get away in the post- office service from any idea that la bor is a commodity. I would reit erate the suggestion that that idea was alandoned 1921 years ago. We have in the postal service em ployes who belong to their unions and some that do not. Some of these unions are affiliated with outside unions and some are not. I have seen rand met personally representa tives of all of these unions and they have met with my assistants and other supervisory officials. We do not care what the emyloye belongs to if he only understands what service means, and the employes are under standing it. There is one thing car- tain, though-the postal door is go ing to be made so attractive inside that there will not be much need for open lobby doors or any open doors elsewhere.
