To be perfectly just is an attribute the divine nature to be so to the most of our abilities is the glory it Ian. A Addison. The vulnerability of a governor the ephemeral character of political popularity has been manifested to the governor of Texas. With a sound truck and Hill Billy music he charmed the voters of tile Lone Star St Ito away from their traditional Loyal ies and they made him the nominee of the democratic party with a Joy fill whoop. He went to the governorship Isiah the pol it i it in in. If it and the country gnat thy Liv d an Eye on Texas to see h a the whole irregular business a it uld work out. In some Quai to Imah i before and after the election Daniel was appraised As distinctly More than an entertainer Rhey said he had courage and business gumption. The first appearance of the new governor before his legislature Lave strength to the hoary bemused there he advocated a tax Dan which would finance Public ervice but one which was Greet d by lawmakers and gallery in Tern silence. The Day of the Houting masses had closed for a Daniel he was Down to the in a it Pular business of balancing budgets. This week the new governor tumbled when he announced the of mutation of the death sen ence of a negro murderer Tor he expressed purpose of giving he Man an additional 30 Days of expiation. Texas could t Stom Ich the suggestion of torture and ill four estates Are flaming with condemnation. We regret it because we liked he forthright manner in which he strangely promoted Man Bejan his governing. The governor Las Given the Opportunity to his enemies to get even with him not Only for the mistaken inexcusable use of the Power of Colum nation but for other things. The inspiration of most of the attacks and much of their violence undoubtedly Are considerations oth or than the cruelty of the governs towards the prisoner. Living for atmosphere mountaineers of the great smokes Park area will not be squared to leave the ancestral vastness. They will be allowed to Hay even encouraged to stay to Ive a a atmosphere to the Park. Perhaps the Mountain folks vill not object to furnishing a a atmosphere provided there is a substantial consideration directly it a indirectly supplied. They have sense of humor and get As much enjoy mint out of the freakish Ness of the tourists As the tourists it out of them and their habits. One of them joking another lout their future Many Moons Igo forecast the pie ent departmental decision when lie said fete you know what they a planning to do with us i Heer de they was going to fit us with tails and use us for monkeys in the keen witted people whose simplicity is a Way of living and not a mental deficiency Are those North carolinians and tennesseans who inhabit the High Hills. The same humorist quoted above told the Story of the scientific expedition headed by a College professor which penetrated to portions of the great smokes where the foot of White Man was presumed not to have been set before a and did it with a great amount of nation wide publicity. A they went for Days and Days a the Mountaineer said a and then one evening just about Sundown they come upon what do you think a one of them prehistoric steam americans first Rit outdoor advertising the report is published that Brenas College has been Given Emory University so find a the engraved Stone said to have been discovered on the Banks of the Chowan in North Carolina and held to be a last message to the world from the lost Colony. The engraving contains nothing to invalidate the theory that the lost colonists were the authors of it the new ownership is quoted As saying. Not even the fact that the engraving in Good English promised a Reward to the Indian who reported to Whites expected from overseas promised to aborigines whose Mastery of elizabethan English was far from impressive leaked the air fortunately for International rest Veness the president was in position to deny and did deny vigorously the militant phrasing of policy viewpoint attributed to him. It is one thing and a substantial one for the president to encourage variation in our neutrality policy to give democracies an advantage in the armament race but it is another for him to be uttering sentences w h i c h pledge our entry in unborn warfare. We Are pleased that he could give the lie to the allegation that he had said the Rhine would be the american Frontier in event of another world War. Perhaps there Are Many americans who believe our fortunes would be determined on a Rhine Battle line in the event of such a War but discretion bids the president not to say so. We take unquestioningly As truth his positive assertion that he made no such statement. Or. Roosevelt a denial helps to curb foreign resentments and it is Likely to have a similar effect upon Domestic concern if not Domestic vituperation. In View of the a scotched stories of the incident before the military affairs committee senatorial questioning of our executive policy seemed in order. The president took advantage of the Opportunity while denouncing mis quotation to assert clearly his View of our International policy. That statement May satisfy Many of the honest questioners in the Senate. In the news the Lexington dispatch says that a Cash taken out of a Road fund when the state desperately needs to make safer the highways on which we Are sacrificing the lives of a thousand citizens a year and bringing pain Long or permanent crippling and a Load of expense on Many thousands of others actually Means a restriction of life at the other end of the line. Incidentally since the sales tax seems now to lie unmovable it might meet with popular approval if the legislature should fully convince itself that the state is actually getting every Dollar it should realize from this source. Collections should become More efficient each year the tax Well said and appropriate Statesville daily a for unadulterated nerve we nominate the member of the appropriations committee who proposed to lop off $23,800 from the amount set up by Hie budget commission for salaries of clerical help in the next general forget Ting the nerve it might be news to Many citizens that the work of the committees in the general Assembly Calls for quite a number of typists. In other Days legislators could carry a great Deal of the work accomplished in their Heads. Not so now. North Carolina has grown up and her government is no Small replica of that Washington.

Let me Tell you about Giovanni Martinet world famous Tenor of the metropolitan opera in new York. He told it to me himself. He wanted to lie a Singer but there Wasny to much Chance. The family was poor and unable to give him a musical education. His father was a Cabinet maker in Italy. Giovanni himself was the eldest of fourteen children. Nothing interested the boy but music. He Sang As he worked at his Trade of cabinetmaking Side by Side with his father. The town where they lived was Small. So the family raked up enough Money to Send Young Giovanni to Milan. He was Happy. He believed he could thrill people with the music deep Down inside him that cried out for expression. He believed he could conquer the musical world. He did. Two years after he arrived in Milan he made his de. But on the operatic stage in Verdi so people shouted and tossed their hats in the air. He continued to study six years passed. He was Good. He was excellent. Then came the word that the Brilliant Arturo Toscanini was coming to Italy to look for Talent to take Hack to the metropolitan. What an Opportunity Young Martini Iii made up his mind that Toscanini was going to take him Hack. He decided to sing a part that he knew would Appeal to Toscanini the role of Dick Johnson in a girl of the Golden that dealt with America Toscanini would approve he would hire him. Martinelli studied with feverish intensity. He threw himself into the part until he lived it. After rehearsal he would sit for some moments before he was Able to come out of the part so vivid was it to him. Sometimes the stagehands spoke to him and he did not hear them for he was still Dick Johnson. The great event was to take place in Rome. The Day came. Martinelli walked out. Knees trembling. Then he got hold of himself again and became Dick Johnson. As he Sang he knew he had never done so Well before. When it was Over Toscanini sent for him. A i can to take you to America. You re a Martinelli was enraged. What a Greenhorn Why the people of Milan had shouted his name. Lie had taken six curtain Calls. He would Tell Toscanini something there was an interruption and Martinelli had a moment to think. Toscanini was sincere he had spoken As he Felt. So he calmed his temper. A after he said a it is a great privilege at my age to have Sung in Rome before Toscanini had expected Martinelli to a go temperamental,1 but he had t. Instead of arguing with Toscanini and insulting him. Martinelli did the unusual the generous the Superb thing he complimented the great Maestro. Toscanini was pleased. He agreed to hear Martinelli again. Two years later. Martinelli was singing for Toscanini m the metropolitan. Sure he had ability but he had something else almost As important As ability he had the Art of pleasing people.

Bruce Catton agricultural act Bruce Catton in Washington by Bruce Catton Washington feb. 4.�?after Sis years of strenuous and expensive Effort the new Deal program to help the Farmer is Back within shouting distance of its starting Point. The farm Belt is sore again and it soreness is reflected in Congress. It is quite possible that this Congress will go ahead and write a Brand new Type of farm Bill tossing production control out of Hie window having the govern a e n t underwrite the Farmers Cost of production providing for the dumping of Export surpluses and greatly broadening the Field in which the present operates. An influential bloc of farm Belt senators and representatives has lined up behind such a Bill. A similar Bill failed to pass the Senate last year by just six votes this year the Bills backers May find those six votes and More. A Good Man to discuss the whole situation with is senator Arthur capper. Senator capper a Kansas Republican admits freely that president Roosevelt and Secretary of agriculture Wallace Are perfectly sincere in their desire to help the Farmer. He says this administration is More Friendly to the Farmer than any in Many years. But he also feels that the new Deal farm program has failed and that it is time to find a better one. Self control for Farmers just before he came to Washington this Winter senator capper held a conference in Topeka with 900 Kansan Farmers. He also had letters from 1000 More. He believes he has a pretty fair idea of what the Farmer needs. First he feels that regimentation and restriction of production must Stop. If there is to he any control he says let Farmers impose it on them selves rather than submit to some thing devised at Washington. Next he believes the Farmer Mut be assured of the Cost of production of his crop plus a fair profit As far As crops grown for Domestic consumption Are concerned. Surpluses he feels should be exported for whatever they will bring either with or without government Aid. He would shape Tariff and foreign Trade policies to present the american Market in Toto for the american Farmer. He would keep the present soil conservation program and would continue to finance agriculture through the farm credit administration but he thinks 3 per cent interest is plenty for farm Loans. All of which comes reasonably Clos to expressing the provisions of the Frazier Lemke Bill introduced recently by the farm bloc. Not unanimous senator capper admits with a wry smile that Farmers themselves Are far from United in their views. A those Farmers i talked with at Topeka certainly weren to in agreement. Most of them i think do want the aaa act of 1938 repealed. But one group a Small but noisy one. Wants the government to Stop trying to do anything at All for the Farmer. A larger group wants some control of surpluses to keep prices from going Down too far. Still others bitterly oppose production and marketing control but do approve of the soil conservation the senator remarks that the new farm program sought to he keyed to the family sized farm. In too Many cases he believes the aaa program has been a Fine thing for the big land. Lord and the corporation owned farm but a bad thing for the Little fellow. The senator is not irrevocably committed to All the details of the Bill which the newly organized farm bloc has brought in. A i joined in sponsoring it because i want to see it brought before cop Gress a he says. A i want to see it examined and studied carefully. Maybe it Isnit just what we re looking for. But it at least deserves our Earnest for. Believes senator capper something has to be done. For years he remarks at least two thirds of All american Farmers have operated at a loss. The present administration a tried to help but As he puts it a a they be made Little or no Progress like the others in the farm bloc he believes some new approach must ii tried maybe the Frazier Lemke proposal. New Brief a the peace conference at Paris is making a record in handling business. A league of nations plan will probably be announced within the next two weeks.
