COAL WAGES AND PRICES The Appalachian Trade Journal of Knoxville, offivial organ of several coal producers' associations-, quotes R. E. Howe, secretary of the South ern Appalachian association, as de claring that under wage increases of August 9, it will be impossible for minors in that region to sell coal at $3.60 per ton, as recommended by Secretary Hoove r";The price wijl be about $5 per ton Cati the mines, Mr. Howe says. The secretary of the association says the wages of day laborers have been increased S2..50 a day, pick men have been granted 24 cents a ton, 'disabled THE WINGS OF THE WIND Springfield Republican. The wonderful flights of Martens j and Hentzen at Wasserkuppe show anew how long a lead the Germans have sot in flying by sheer skill with out engine power. The record of 21 ! minutes made a sensation last year, and set the aviators of other countries at efforts to beat it. Yet the best flight achieved at the international meet at j j Clermont-Ferrand, which has just clos ed lasted only two minutes and 51 sec onds, and the total time when the win ning machine managed to stay aloft was but 49 minutes, 59 seconds, the American competitor, , Allen, achiev ing a total for all flights of 12 min utes, 27 seconds before his plane was I 11 " I "- - M ii I iy -pnr i n .... a - - PASTIME J Si- yardage and other dead work increas ed 20 per cent. Day laborers will aver age $5.32 and those who dig the coal will get from $8 to $12, it Is claimed. ' The Record presents the, figures for what they may be worth. Most of our coal comes from this region. Coal probably will be obtainable, but it will come dear under present conditions. MUST END STRIKE If. there is one thing more certain than another, it is that the American people will insist that industrial wars be eliminated There is no doubt that the United SUtes, recovering from the effects of the great war, was on the eve of a business revival that would have meant prosperity for everybody willing to work. Competi tion for competent help would have raised wages in all industry. That could not have been avoided, even were there a disposition to hold the wage lid down. With nn end to th strike soon, that prosperity which was assured by ftc'und basic conditions may not be delayed many weeks, but millions of people besides those directly involved have in industry if this country is rail and coal strikes, which are dear victories even if won by the strikers. A leadership that counsels strikes and lockouts is unwise. A leadership that counsels accommodation is sound. That is the sort cf leadership we must have in this industry if this country is Wo prosper ; as it should. In good times there will be more than enough jobs to go around and all of us want to see good times all the time. We cannot have prosperity with two tets v2 organizations out to beat each other up. They must strive to help each other get along. It may be a long time before the American people are educated up tt the point where they will insist on the peaceful settlement of duties, but eventually it will be the remedy. Then disputes will become less frequent. In the Interest of better conditions for everybody in a land which can provide them, these industrial wars must be stopped. If they are not stop ped, everybody will suffer. LET'S TRY IT We suppose that everybody in Hick ory is interested in those things which make for better citizens. The only dif ficulty the community as a whole en counters in such things is reaching an agreement, finding something that will be helpful. When most, of us were boys and girls we had plenty of freedom of action, wide forests, creeks and rivers to play in, all outdoors to roam in. No body cared 30 years ago. It is differ ent now. . i , Industry has brought a large num ber of people, together. Our small towns are almost as large as our "big cities" were a few years ago. Environ ment has changed. The training camps i. disclosed the fact that young men, if given whole some play, will make 'better soldiers and better citizens. We all like td play. You can. take a baseball along with you after supper this evening and en gage -in a game of catch with any man in Hickory. ; . Whitehead Kl'uttz, who is here in the Interest of the playground movement, is using the arguments that we all know by heart to interest'Hickory peo ple in community play under capable direction. As We employ our time during off hours, our characters are formed. We can use spare time to good advantage. Hickory ought to try the program outlined by Mr. Kluttz. They are go ing in for it everywhere and it is a great boon. It will help here. These disappointingly short flights led one skeptical commenator in this country to ask: "Can it be that 'the Germans alone are able to perform miracles in the air, or is it that these flights are more carefully watched by disinterested observers than those in Germany?" But neither is the case. That the German achievements, are quite genuine was attested. last year by some of the leading British experts, who went to Germany on purpose to see them. But they are not miraculous and defy no natural law; they are due simply to. great skill in exploiting air currents. Even last year's record is wholly eclipsed by those just made at Was- seruppe.

The next few days ought to determine the course of events. Rapid progress is being made on the bonus bill, and it is said that President Harding may veto it. Cleveland, Roose velt, Taft and Wilson would have done it in a hurry if they didn't lik it. Protest against the troops at Spen cer was properly resented by Gover nor Morrison. The state has a duty to perform, and it will perform it. If James F. Barrett got drunk in Salisbury, he surely had more cause than a lot of other folks have. They didn't let him speak. HEARST AND HYLAN BAD ACTORS One wonders, as he considers the present Irish stew, whether Cromwell did such a bad job of it cr not. The great English statesman and warrior treated the Irish rough, as you might recall, but at that time it was hard to be lenient. As one thinks of their recent crimes, he is not prone to con demn Cromwell and his successors. The assassination of Michael Collins, president of the dail eireann, was a cowardly piece of business. The major ity of Irish people had voted for the Free State and he and his colleagues were . trying . to restore peace, and prosperity to the island. If it should become necessary or England to ex ert military force, public opinion, in the face of the miserable practices of the Irish irregulars, will sustain the London government. New York Times. Mr. Murphy's problem and that of the Democratic party of the state has been solved in the simplest way. Mr. Hylan, who wanted the nomination for governor to go to Mr. Hearst, re fuses to be a candidate and will con tinue to be "a regular Democrat.' Mr Hearst, an irregular Democrat who wanted the nomination to go to Mr. Hylan, is "net a candidate." "Al' Smith is a candidate, the only can didate left; and the Democratic pri maries and state convention have . clear course to follow. The affection ate and romantic Mr. Conners still allows the soft glamor of friendship to veil the reality; but romanticists in politics are sure to be disappointed The Democrats of New York are too polite to force a nomination upon anybody; and, after all. the recent tableau of Damon and Pythias was more edifying, more sweetly ideal more cc'.npliraentary to the . under lying altrusim of the. best human na ture than could be any honors achiev ed by the coars processes of polities WANTS TARIFF BILL VETO New York Tribune. What will happen in conference to those twin monstrosities . the Ford ney tariff bill and the McCumber tanff bill?

There is no hope of a beneficial compromise between two measures both of which distort and Dervert the protection principle and carry duties far in ex cess t'f the country s economic needs The Republican leaders in the Senate sinned against common sense in passing anv tariff bill at this ses sion. They foolishly maneuvered them selves into a nosijion where they were at the mercy of a shrewd Democratic opposition. The' Democratic party wanted the McCumber bill passed and really forced its passage. It natui-- jtllv expects to be immensely bene fitted by false Republican strategy.

The flight was certainly stren uous. I had to watch out and keep a sharp eye on every roll of the grounc in order to catch or exploit every air current. The fact that 1 was able to maintain my altitude steadily so lon over Wasserkuppe a mountain of th. Rhoen range, 3115 feet high without being forced to glide down is due to the lact that upward currents favora ble to air sailing were distributed over the whole hill region. Meteorological training and a thorough knowledge of wind currents is certainly of first line importance to the pilot of a motorless airplane; a good machine conies in the second line. t his indicates clearly the course of training which the aviators of other countries will have to follow in order to overcome 'the long lead which the Geimans have got because of the re strictions put upon them by the treaty of Versailles That they will be allow ed to keep their lead unchallenged is not to be supposed, and American air men will no doubt do their part in cul tivating this new sport, which may prove of great value in acquiring mas tery of the air. The sailing record across the Atlantic was made by t ship on the rim of a'cyclone; before the air is fully mastered airmen likewise must learrvto ride on the wings of the wind.
