The tax exemption of certain Kea Etc the supervise of taxation for Mecklenburg county announces he expected to list and assess for taxation the properties of the Charlotte housing authority. He takes this position despite the fact a Superior court upheld the tax exempting provisions of the state Law in a new Hanover Case. The Mecklenburg Man says he will carry the Issue through the supreme court if necessary before surrendering the county a claim to taxes. In the face of increasing sex i Chi Phons of property from Tho and Valorme levies we have no disposition to rebuke a tax super Viser for a firm stand against further eliminations from the books. Perhaps Guilford county is to Oul it Ltd by exemptions More than top Colenburg since a great Many additional panels of real estate have entered the tax exempt class Iii this county through the foreclosures of certain College endowment funds in recent years. A Conque Rable percentage of business property Falls in this class. A Charlotte is about a year ahead of High Point in the slum Clear nce and Low Cost housing program. If Mecklenburg tests the of fax exemption provision As the supervisor promises the Issue May face settled without the necessity for a similar test in Guilford. I the legislature passed the in ailing author her of video for tax exemption As the peans for local participation with the f ederal government in subsidizing slum clearance. That body is not Likely to repudiate or impair that legislation after contracts were made with the government in Good Faith. J rhe Law is a state wide one and bidding for votes Down Manteo Way while none of the candidates for governor has equalled a. J. Maxwells bid for the vote of dare Tyrrell and Hyde counties in dollars and cents one has proposed an appeasement plan which has about As Many troubles in it As Pandora a Box contained. The Butterfly of Hope is the likelihood that the legislature would ignore any such recommendation As the candidate indicated he might make. We refer to the suggestion of the lieutenant governor or. Horton that the legislature should make special provisions for completion of county seat to county seat hard surfaced roads. A major misfortune for the Road system would be the beginning of the a a legislation of individual roads. True dare has contended that the old Morrison Road Law specified the tie up of the county capitals and that the Law has been dishonoured in practice in some parts of the state but the bes stay to round out a dependable Road system remains the plan of the state to leave Road location to engineers and Road commissioners. Or. Maxwell promised the three Road conscious counties something like six million dollars Worth of construction in four years. Candidate Lee Graveley says he thinks a a direct routes connecting county seats should be built and or. Horton talks of a special legislative provisions to compel such construction. Obviously the three counties particularly interested Are Paramount ing one Issue in this Campaign and the candidates Are recognizing the fact. Things about the judge but the quotation Given brings to the fore a characteristic too often lacking in Public men and still More is it lacking in the voting populace. Courage of conviction and intelligent use of the franchise would go far toward making America a better nation in which to live. With a a Dole. Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people tuesday april 2. 1910 cooperation in the census taking theoretically the Federal census taken decent rally is authentic unquestionable. Actually there have been instances of such glaring Inadequacy in the task of counting the folks that communities have secured a recount. We mention the fallibility of the census taker in order to give emphasis to the importance of the suggestion from the chamber of Commerce that All citizens take a personal interest in getting themselves included in the count. The old Zeal for Mere numbers has subsided in the cities As they have struggled often and Long with problems which an excess of undigested numbers complicated. The burning anxiety of each City a few years ago a Humble Mechanic was walking through a factory room of the general electric company where the big punch presses wen1 thudding and pounding and hammering away. Suddenly he stopped and looked around him for he saw something he haunt noticed before that Many of the men working at the punch presses were missing a Finger or two. He had really seen it before but its significance had not dawned on him. The Man walked on thinking about what he had seen. His name was Christian Steenstrup. He had been born in Denmark and spoke broken English. All that night he was haunted by missing fingers. The Humble Mechanic decided something should be done about it. He went Back to the room and studied the great punch presses. He got out Pencil and paper made sketches of them. Then on the in his dining room he made sketches of machines that would do the work and save those fingers. Night after night. Sunday after sunday. Glowing with excitement he showed the sketches to the Foreman. The Foreman looked at him i tingly. The company he said had highly educated engineers to make such inventions when. As. And if. They were needed. But the inventor was so enthused by this time that he went ahead and built one of the machines and took it Back to the Foreman. The Foreman looked at it. He Felt that the fact that such an invention had come from a Humble Mechanic reflected on him. So he fired this upstart. The Foreman wished to pretend that his department was so efficient that it needed no outside help. By a hit of Luck the factory manager heard about this machine which would save fingers and asked to see it. The Humble toolmaker took it to the managers office. The factory manager saw its possibilities the machine was built and put into use. This set the Heads of the company to thinking. Maybe other men had ideas. An idea department was started a a suggestions committee a was created. Christian Steenstrup brought in an idea himself. It made the modern Home refrigerator practical. It created a new Industry. Now encouraged other men brought in ideas. Steenstrup was made chairman of the a suggestions since he started this committee almost a third of a million ideas have been turned in. And about one out of four has been found practical and put to use. The company pays Cash for these ideas anything from $5 to $1,500. Steenstrup himself holds patents.

The Enterprise John describes three unclean spirits emanating from the Mouth of the dragon the beast and the false Prophet which would he the personification of foul and treacherous machinations in the last Days. We know that the dragon has always typified paganism. Imperial Rome was its Las stand As a world Empire. The roman faces a bundle of rods with an a prospecting from the Middle of them was the Symbol of lower Over life and Lime in this political Empire of the dragon. The beast is false ecclesiastic ism represented in its Many manifestations and through occult practices. In ancient Egypt. Tibet and in other Oriental or Fontries the Swastika was used As a magic sign or Charm. The false Prophet is easily identified As Mohammed whose followers had As their Emblem the present and Star. The horns of the Moon were turned to the Dexter Side of the shield. Under this sign fanatics tortured raped and hundreds of thousands in Asia minor Europe and Africa. They showed no mercy in their pillage and in the destruction of those who did not agree with them. Here we have the dragon the boast and the false Prophet with their heraldry three sources from which there emanates a spirit of evil afflicting the world today. Can we identify Modem movements and find that the energizing spirit of each originated in the above three sources if we can and at the same time find that each has adopted in whole or in part the ancient heraldry that identification is completed.

Bruce Catton in Washington smash against Plum Bing group key to drive on building costs Washington. April 2. A that 1002-Pound indictment voted in Cleveland against plumbing Trade leaders was not Only the biggest indictment yet voted in the Justice departments building costs inquiry in the eyes of assistant attorney general Thurman Arnold it was also the most important. That a not because Arnold figures the plumbing business is any worse than other parts of the building Industry but because in this Case for the first time a Federal grand jury hit a situation precisely the \ a Arnold has maintain. D it ought to be tonal basis All in one All of the other indictments in this Campaign have dealt with local or regional situations. This one covered the country As a whole or at any rate the greater part of it. It can stand As a Model of the anti Trust divisions idea of the Way to enforce the antitrust Law in that it takes one specific product and covers every step in its Progress from factory production line to the Home of the ultimate consumer. Many complaints were received action of this kind was in the cards even before the building costs Cam iia Ign got started. The department had been getting complaints about the plumbing business for years. De Hodges Arnold a assistant who handled the Case had made preliminary studies off and on for Many months. As soon As the building costs inquiry was decided on it was figured plumbing we Ould be i key part. When Hodges went to Cleveland la of october he had a pretty Good idea of the sort of evidence he was going to get and where he was going to find it. It was printed material and Type script mostly once the grand jury convened in november the Job was largely one of subpoena ing and analysing documents. No Short Cut for consumer. C Harge in substance the department charges a distribution of plumbing fixtures was tightly organized from top to Mot Tom not for purposes of Price fixing but with the effect of making Price Structure More rigid. Manufacturer and jobbers it alleges. Had Mutual agreements jobbers in turn. Had agreements with master plumbers a the contractor who hire the journeymen who actually install the fixtures in a House. And master plumbers Are accused of having similar agreements with the journeymen a Union. Net result according to the department was no Short cuts for the consumer. So called a cd tue shipping a direct to you service from factory to consumer a declined until by departmental estimate it amounted to less than a fifth of the entire business. Just incidentally Tine of the departments important studies of the situation consisted of an examination of the files of one of the big mail order houses. In general Hodges says his men figured the consumer had to pay from 17 to 25 per cent More for plumbing fixtures than he would and open Market. Under a free i time of it Hodges kept Busy w Ith two probes Hodges had a Busy throughout the investigation. Not Only was he in charge of the plumbing investigation he also had charge of the investigation into the building Industry in Cleveland. The Cleveland situation was one of the a a hottest in the country for both jobs Hodges had eight assistants. His Gal said something he didst like.
