The growing cities of the state have no higher responsibility than the furnish ment to the citizens of sufficient pure water not Only for Domestic purposes but for Industrial uses which Are increasing their demand. Adequate water Supply is one of the Points in favor of the Community that possesses it that had great weight in resolving the outcome of Competition for new industries. This Stream gauging that the state department furnishes at Cost or less is an important service available for any City that chooses to take it.

Fortunately seeded up transportation Hasni to served to increase the frequency of these visits of s. Claus. Character of its water Supply. There is a feeling Here that ultimately we must tap Yadkin River for water. It is an inexpert uninformed opinion a Mere guess but it May hit the Mark. At any rate the City ought to know. Foreknowledge of what our problems is in respect to water that Tan be secured for a Small expenditure might preserve High Point against the expenditure of a half a million dollars or american on a Chines train j More at the wrong place. Why not were caught squarely Between two Ollow Greensboro s intelligent Lead rival forces during a Battle and in this matter some of them were very nearly hit. Vice president Dawes seem to be realizing for the first time that lies really not a member of the Senate of the United states. Turk rebellious Over Mosul the Turk is preparing for War with great Britain and Britain in disposed according to the colonial Secretary to maintain her right a she a always Turkey declare she will not give up Mosul and yet turks in authority admitted that they expect the league of nation to award the province to Irak which is under British mandate. Trouble seems imminent in Tho matter Turkey would be Able to cause a Nasty crisis. With a standing army at about a half million already fairly Well armed it i said she could double her Man Power in Short order. A million men could conduct a War of major proportions for a. Time against the Best Britain backed by the league of nations could do. Mosul is Rich in Oil and. Therefore is important to Turkey As Well a highly desirable to the British. It is a prize Worth competing for and both sides passengers using Caviness to speak state Highway to at meeting of men get tojshebor0 hard surface Road is l aking away much of Railroad s a Fec Ngor traffic today Jih p. M. Members of a gang arid men s dub Are to hold the meeting that the Large majority of people Are using the hard surface Road in travelling Between High Point and Asheboro rather than making the trip by rail is evidenced by the records of the High Point Randleman Asheboro and Southern Railroad. In 1920. Prior to completion of the hard surface Highway Bot Ween the two foregoing cities 83, passengers were conveyed Over the rail to Road while during that period from november 25, 1 924 to november 25, 1925, the Railroad served Only 2,4 00 passengers. These figures Yvere revealed at a meeting of the Railroad directors Here recently and were made Public last night by j. Elwood Cox of this City member of the state Highway commission through whose efforts to the j the Highway was constructed. Dispute seem definitely committed to the notion that it is one Worth fighting for. The governments present policy some of the colleges which formerly were bidding for one Alioth or g Star players now Are forced to confine themselves to bidding for the other a coaches. Some interesting statistics next to the difficulty in holding the Star College athletes in Amateur circles is that experienced in keeping the coach who them. There s nothing wrong with football says Knute Rockne. Of course not. Has t Knute two universities bidding anxiously for his services right now one Consolation about the new Congress going into session is the furnish ment of a Good explanation if anything goes wrong in the country. If red Grange s football season cuts in anti Ehmu will the motion picture folks proceed with their plans to feature him at a Cost of $300,000? tile Man who become Shah Persia after years of service us a Hostler for cossacks probably will find his experience helpful in his new Job if he does his duty. Some sailors on an american naval vessel who were trying to offset the work of both volstead and Josephus Daniels by operating a Little still aboard ship Are now facing court martial we assume that the state administration has settled Down to the routine business of government since gubernatorial appointments to minor positions now constitute big Capitol news. When the state Highway commission approved the construction of the hard surface Road which directly connects High Point and Asheboro criticism of the preference of it Over certain other projects was based upon the presume develops j Hon that the Road was not needed greatly. It is interesting therefore i to get figures which throw Light upon the question raised. Such figures Are afforded by the Statis i tics of the Short line Railroad j which operates trains Between this City and Asheboro. I the Railroad s reports show that the passengers transported in 1920 i Between the two Points numbered j 83.000 while during tile past year Only 2.400 were carried. The tray tic Between High Point and Ashe a Boro certainly has t decreased noticeably in five years probably it. Has increased. The natural inference is that the thousands who i formerly used the trains now Are j catching Hie buses or driving their own cars Over the smooth Road. This illustration not Only supports the conclusion of the commissioner that the Road was a Public need of Large importance but it shows the effect Good roads can have on rail transportation. Fortunately for the railroads the general increased movement of Tho people and Tho enlarged volume of Commerce More than compensates for what business the automobile carriers Are getting but in certain a Short line cases the defection has a serious effect on passenger receipts. The Railroad company is having Little passenger traffic at present As compared with that of 19 20 and previous year before Tho modern Road was constructed. Buses Are operated Between High Point and Asheboro and those travelling be tween the two cities who do not have automobiles in a majority of j cases travel on buses. Or. Cox expects to leave High s Point tonight for Raleigh where j this week he will attend a meeting i of the state Highway commission. D at odell�?Ts1 an idea insinuated into the political thinking of the nation As often As Opportunity permits by those hostile to the party in Power is that. The administration is a government with a passion for things rather than people. Undoubtedly or. Coolidge is persuaded of the Virtues of our economic order but whether thi causes him to yield unduly to business interests or not perhaps is a question for the socialist to worry Over rather than j one to alarm the average american. Closing quotations Bai Lillav there is no evidence so far. As we j erf some what Irreg see it that Washington has Relin i quashed its authority importantly j there was a time in our history stocks Point to a higher ground arrangement were completed today for the meeting of Quot the gang and the men Christian evangelistic club in the y.

Quot he i one of the finest speakers i have Ever heard a said brother Bill Stephens in speaking of or. Cav in Ess. The meeting this afternoon promises to be one of the Best the gang and men s clubs have Over held and it is hoped that every Man in Hie i City who is interested in tile work will make a Sproal Effort to be present. This afternoons meeting is to be announced in the churches of the City this morning this request having been made by Edgar Hartley chairman of the gospel team department of the organization. Or. Aik will make an address i will re heard at meeting Varent teachers on next tuesday night real Horsman dolls the Premier american playthings for Over half a Century the name a a Horsmann has stood for a a Quality in dolls. Is i a however of the bidding Foh and that not so Long ago when our very Rich men were colossi of menacing proportions. English statesman once exclaimed that such a Man a dangerous to the Well being of the world when or. Depew told him that one american citizen was Worth one Hundred million dollars. The englishman exaggerated the truth but within the memory of Young men the serious illness or death of one of our captains of Industry or great Bankers disturbed the markets created panics of More or less serious results and affected the livelihood of tens of thousands. Who worries Over much now about the Power of the very Rich what difference essentially is there Between the consequences of the death of a pauper and the passing of a Multi millionaire in America not much so far As the common wealth is concerned. The death of the plutocrats no longer affects the markets. Not so Long ago Market stories were invariably tons of interest when a very Rich Man Felt ill government is fostering business. It is encouraging big business. The present administration wants big business to become bigger business. But there is no relaxation of Federal control by commissions of the properties in new York.
