Cd thou Chi then Pilate Haiti unto them Why w hat evil hath he done and they cried out the More exceedingly i re cloy 15 14. A a a mob is the scum that rises upmost when the nation boils. Dryden. The defense of the Absentee ballot the solemn former state chairman of the democratic party Hon. O. M. Mull of Shelby offered a legislative committee an excuse for keeping the Absentee ballot in general elections though banned in primaries and the committee jumped at it. The excuse is that the Absentee ballots use can be supervised better in the elections than in the primaries because republicans Are present and watchful. Or. Mull is quite Frank in his estimate of the proclivities and habits of his party As he set s them. He is quoted As telling the Ommittee Quot i am not afraid of the charge that we Are willing to steal from republicans but not willing to steal from each other. The Absentee ballot can never lie honestly administered in the primaries because even the Best people seem to have different standards in politics from that they have in All their other conduct and there is and can be no dual supervision in primaries. This Hill takes out All the loopholes for general elections and with this Bill honest administration can be secured through dual i his seems to by equivalent to the admission by a former state chairman that he gees no Hope of preventing stealing through abase of the Absentee where Intra party rivalries Are concerned. If the instrument is that dangerous would t it be better to throw it out altogether instead of trusting to the vigilance of the minority party to keep it honest in some of the close counties politicians in the dominant party have been known to say a we need the Absentee to hold the what does that imply if not a special advantage at least in controlling the machinery through which the Absentee flows if a statute is to in written in the name of election Reform w by try to perpetuate such an advantage in the name of righteousness in North Carolina most of the fight on the average is in the primary. If it is wrong to deny the shut in and other absentees the privilege of participating in government Isnit it deplorable that the Campaign and election habits of the majority party will not permit continuation of that privilege in the contests which really determine the ruling personnel of government not Well timed in our judgment a state wide election on prohibition now in accordance with the Withrow Bill before the general Assembly would be unfortunate for North Carolina. In making that estimate of the Merit of an election at this time we Are not influenced by consideration of the probabilities of outcome of the voting. Of prohibition really prohibited or set up adequate enforcement even reasonably acceptable to the people we would have a Clear Cut Issue Between two policies respecting alcoholic beverages. Our experience was that the general t prohibition Law established an unholy relationship Between crime and respectable citizens from which crime flourished at the expense of Public and private decency. The state now is trying a plan which modifies the absolute Legal aridity. We believe a majority of tile voters of this state would vote against the Sale of whiskey. We Are not so certain they would vote to outlaw Beer and wines. But the state permitted a number of counties to establish whiskey stores in the exercise of local option. This Experiment is not old enough for matured judgment generally As to its merits. The whiskey Issue is not settled in this state or elsewhere but we truly believe that an Effort to Settle it now by a majority vote would split the state and help not at All in moving the whole matter along to what we May Hope will be the Correct settlement. While the Withrow Bill is not a Bone dry affair its passage followed by a prohibition Victory would in a Large measure increase Boot legging in the Commonwealth. This is no plea for state wide sales of Strong drink. But the drinking habit and human nature being such As they Are at tile present time there is Good reason in ref raining from trying to foist new Laws upon the Public to confuse the Issue. If reports Are True whiskey sales Are dropping off and if Temperance is correctly taught the rising generation. The Day May come when our sessions of the general Assembly will not lie worried with the thought of having to pass prohibitory measures. The am ate bus St Ati s worthy of the serious consideration of legislators is the Bill introduced yesterday by senator Gordon Gray which provides for the exemption of newspaper photographers and Bona fide amateurs from the licensing provision of the 1935 photography regulation act. Designed to differentiate Between the newspaper photographer and the Amateur photographer who occasionally sell a picture and the licensed commercial photographers the Bill would exempt from the License provision of the photography act persons in the employ of or acting under contract to newspapers and a get Rio Dieal publications. This exemption however is limited so As to make it apply Only with respect to negatives and photographs made for such specific publications and which arc not otherwise offered for Sale for profit in this state. Tho Hill would also except the Amateur who photographs for his own pleasure and occasionally Sells a picture but does not solicit orders. Certainly neither of these groups is in Competition with the commercial photographer and in virtually every Case w hat photographs Are taken by the newspaper photographer Are made specifically for the publication by which he is employed anti Are not for use elsewhere. When a request for a copy of a photograph is occasionally made the photographers trouble and expense Are usually in excess of his recompense. We see no threat whatsoever to the commercial photographer in the enactment of such a Bill. In the news Bela immedi for nine months Premier of Hungary Lias resigned on the grounds that one of his grandfathers was a jew. Ile Felt that it would be inconsistent for him to go on with his program of anti semitism having jewish blood in his veins. The sex Premier can at least be Given credit for a certain degree of honesty. In full honesty he should Tell his people that he was wrong to begin with that Tho jews were among the first settlers of Hungary and Germany and anti semitism is a show of race hatred and ingratitude Many a inhumanity to Man appears in a sorry Light when it is considered that a not one by it Ixl hath he god made All a five Kansas City fire engines rushed to a fire in a Birds nest according to a recent news item. The report adds Only that the damage w As listed As Brevity in the news can be greatly overdone and this is one Case where the Reader deserves to know More of the facts connected with a Bird s nest fire. And above All did they find the Bird that turned in the we have an idea the Bird responsible resembled the feathered owner of the nest in Only one things he had two legs. Washington Raleigh times a Uncle Sam is proposing to Send trained army experts to South and Central America with the idea of helping against possible european aggression and to create something in the nature of a pan american Reserve Force. Altogether a Fine a a business but it remains to be seen How hard it will be to get the Goose step out of their before the experts go Down that Way America needs to get pan american Trade relations Well established. Already Argentina has curtailed imports from the United states on tile excuse that this nation is shipping far More to her than the great meat producing nation is Able to sol to us. Where German Trade goes there go attempts to Foster the Goose step and it is a known fact that for some time Germany has been capturing much of the Trade of the Central and South american republics.

Newness size just boners cause of Vav p a headaches by Bruce Catton Washington feb. 17. A a Good Many of the troubles of spa have come from its sheer size. Others have come from its newness and the nature of the Job it has been trying to do. Still others have been the result of Ordinary human mistakes. Take the last first. Ordinarily spa has approximately 100.-000 foremen on duty at one time. Some of them know How of handle men some of them Don t. Some of Bruce cat to them know How to plan a Job and some of them done to. Working for them Are men from Relief Rolls. Many of these men feel they have a grievance against society. In Many cases they will be doing work they never did before. In addition incentive to Good performance which obtains in private Industry is Larking there is precious Little Hope for pro a motion not so much fear of discharge put those factors together and Youj Are certain to get some spotty performances. One spa Crew May in welded into an efficient working unit another one May indulge in horseplay waste its Energy through inefficient operation or gel out of Contr is of its Foreman and Start shovel leaning. Ross Ehi cation spa authorities Are trying to Rem cd this by an educational program for foremen. For More than a Yea classes for foremen have teen held. A these classes practically everything i discussed from the essentials of Load Reship to safety precautions and howl to Stop fights. At present such classed Are being held in 15 states. Other failures of the human Cie ment have occurred farther up to line. For instance the spa program has to be flexible As the number o men employed is forever rising or fall ing. In a Given locality the spa supervisor May Load up with too Man non flexible project like construction jobs private business picks up and to spa Roll drops As a result that reality has several half finished built Ings on its hands with complot to awaiting either a Rise in spa Rolls o the finishing of of Hor jobs. Again lost motion May enter the picture through faulty planning. I one locality several Small projects a lie under Way separately when the could he welded into one at a Konoid enable saving. A pay a big pvt trouble however a come from the very nature of Itsjo spa exists primarily to put men t work that has to come first eve when As docs happen occasional rust enough n ii work to g around.

Or i men to work. So we crowded them o he jobs. Maybe we assigned thro a inc As Many men to a Job As wet actually needed. They got in each Oil Eros Way. There Wasny to any Way out that sort of thing Quot till Happ in a sudden depression let necessary to expand a locality spa quota quickly. Engineers bar to plan it.
