FIKEjPREGENTlCN With fire lighting apparatus super ior to thut of - any other country, the United States), has a far greater fire loss thim anyt European na.ion or a mimbcr of nations with the sumo area and number of buildings. Thia is a fact that is frequently emphasized. Itj; cannot be due to more faultyconstrujttion of buildings, be valine iirAnicifnn cities the greatest effort is nade jfo build fire-proof struc tures, wheryasiin Eunpo many of the buildings havd stood for centuries. It must bo i-Uic to carelessness. By proclaniatio'm4he in-esidcnt of the United States and Vhc governor of North Carolina have sot aside the week of October 2-9 as fire pVevcntion week in this country. Octobe-hj 9 has been observed for years as fire prevention day and in recent years the schools have been enlisted in the cause. The program of prevention will be carried into every sl.hool in the state this year.. ) In towns and cities the fire deiart ments will takp a leading' part in ob servance and owners of "buildings may be sure that firemen will bn "poking" their noses around. They have a right to do this. It s their duty to inspect premises. ;' . In Hickory jvc ought to. be ready for the inspectors. Jjcttcr still, we ought to form tiie habit of reducing the fire hazard to a minimum. - h- FREE THROAT CLINIC ? Scvdral hundred Catawba county children, as explained in'an article on another page, will have the oppor tunity of attending -a free throat clinic at the court house' in Newton the sec ond week in October and parents ought to take advantage of the occasion. The cost for operation where needed will be nominal. It has been found that dis eased tonsils and adenoids cause many ailments the poison from them af fect the entire body. Nobody need feel that he is accepting charity by taking his child for examination and opera tion. The state board of health, which is supported by public taxation, will conduct the clinic and , the best spe cialists and nursps will be employed. Dr. W: P. Spcas of Hickory will per form the operations. Tho Associated . Press, gentle read er, sends an occasional .item that the Record does njNsarry.

The greatest defect in the present Indian Educa tional program is that it docs not can y the Imlian far enough ' alnojr civilized awys, is thu opinion of Dr. Elmer E. Higley, Chicago, superin tendent of Indian Work o fthe Metho- dist Episcopal church.

"Open for them the high' ! . cho'.'K att-n-,1 them the opportunity i ol ("!legi tiaimm: and the problem of "going back to the blanket will be solved.

I reasons, .y i he Indian in. ins pnmi- live codition is so piciureso.ue. tney I say. 'Leave nun alone against oackgrounu oi nis coioriui pganis:m i Jind his untutored savagery.' j "Certain Indians have resented the intrustion of the white man's religion, j The cause of this resentment lias not been so much in the intuitive .desire to hold to pagan riles as it has been from hatred engendered bv cruelties and injustices which the red men have suffered at the hands of their white brothers. "The Indian's earlier contast wHh white men and the Christian religion was unfortunate. His opinions were based largely upon what he saw of the borders of our civilization. To these borders came the white traders, usually a class having no scruples i trains t taking advantage of the red men. "Thme false impression has been and is now rapidly undergoing change. Tho education among them especially are recognizing its suoerior merit. They know the old faiths ' are false and now are asking for preachers and teachers to direct them the wav of the 'Jesus Road.".
