RACKING THE JUNIORS
With the efforts of the North Caro
lina Juniors to establish a branch of
the national orphanage in this state,
Hickory Juniors and other fraternal
and civic bodies will cooperate to the
fullest extent. The asylum assured for
Noith Carolina, Hickory Juniors md
their friends will place the claims
of Hickory before the state authori
ties in the belief that the inducements
to be offered by the local council will
outweigh those that can be offered bv
anv other place in the state.
It is with a realization of the im
portance of the orphanage and the r
f.ponsibility that will devolve on Ilick
rrv Juniors that they will seek to
have the home, in tas2 this statv
gets it, located in this city or vicinty,
The home town of such an institution
would be expected to do much for th
children. Activities in their behalf
would never cease.
Most of the larger cities in th
state already have institutions of oiv
kind or another to which they am in
debted. Raleigh, Oxford, Whiter
Salem. Greensboro, uoldsboro and
Thomasville have orphanages, and the
Junior institution, the Record believe,
will be awarded to some town or city
not so fortunate- as these other place ;
in this respect.
Hickory is able to offer the hA
possible advantages, chief of which ij
climate. The site will be selected at
the proper time, and this city's offe:
placed before those who will have th
privilege and responsibility of select
ing a location. In the meantime the
jJuriiors have bcon assured of the
'whole-hearted supports of this com
munity. Bion II. Butler, writing in the Nev .'i
and Observer, is able to see no sen.'c
in a Tar Heel's going to California
er Florida when in the eastern, parr
of his own state he can find all the
joys and pleasures to be. found any
where. If we did not belong to that
element of the population which i.j
kept busy most of the time, we should
ask for nothing better than two or
three weeks a season near the Nonh
Carolina coast at this time of year.
It is enough to make one shiver to
road of the sailors caught in a bliz
zard on Lake Superior and of an air
mail pilot forced to land in Wyoming
because of the fierce weather. Thur
far the mercury has not gone lowei
here than 20 degrees, although this
morning there was a tang in the air 5
suggestive of winter. We are due to
have a cold season in the next two
One who travels over the country
car.not but observe the increasing
i.number of deserted farm houses. Is
th time coming when the towns and
cities will have drawn practically all
of the rural inhabitants except those
who live close to market? One cannot
expect people to remain on the farms
if they can find conditions better in
The Asheville Times in a special
edition of 108 pages proclaims the
glories of western North Carolina.
Some enterprise. The Asheville papers,
which are read by more visitors to the
state than any other Tar Heel publica
tions, have an aunusual opportunity
to do good service and there is not
a day that they are not pushing and
' The governors who attended the
president's luncheon agreed that more
rigid enforcement of the prohibition
laws was necessary along with a cam
paign of education by the press. These
arc positions which the Record has
held all along. Our people should be
made, if possible, to realize the evils
that result from liquor violations.
