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,

the cause.
courtesy and consideration are
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
raMlahed by the Clay Printing Co.

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
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.
Aithur James, editor of the Moving
Picture World after a pie-view of
"Midsummer Madness" printed the
following signed editorial in tide
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."

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.
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

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

Of the postal managemtnt in applica

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

have met with my assistants and

not care what the emyloye belongs to
if he only understands what service
means, and the employes are under
