A by doing Good with his Money a Man As it Scro. Stamps the image of god upon it and makes it pass current for the merchandise of heaven. A a. Rutledge. The City a Opportunity for coming Spring the City a special act to permit discounting of Street assessments is one of several extraordinary municipal efforts that have been made in the past eight or ten years to break the local assessment Jam. We Trust the twelve percent Cut will have the effect the City Hall holies it will have. At Best however the assessments totalling Between three and four millions will be slow Clearing up. These assessments cannot lie forgiven or scaled Down heavily. Not Only is the element of discrimination against the assessed who have paid a consideration but the City a debt Structure is erected in part upon these assessments As municipal assets. The City will need to make the most of the new statutory inducement for the assessed to pay and of every other persuasion or pressure. The Clearing up of the assessments or the placing of them on a steady pay basis is essential to satisfactory municipal finance. But the most important part of the City a program in this matter should be that part which is calculated to help the taxpayer help himself. We refer to the occasional opportunities which present themselves for the distribution of the assessment in instances where Large blocks of undeveloped property Are involved. At the present time owners of several of such tracts of land Are working with the City for the subdivision of the land. That is the kind of thing which should be encouraged not Only because of the effect it would have on the assessment Jam but for the effect it would have in inducing the building of Homes inside the City boundaries. Street assessments have had something to do with the fact that hundreds of Small Homes of people who make their living in High Point have been built in recent years outside. Many of these Are even outside the county limits a Many Vav h i c h would have been built in the City had these blocks of undeveloped realty been on the Market on favourable terms. A new building urge is Felt today. We believe there will be More Home building the coming Spring than before in years. There Are advantages for the Small Home owner inside the City which he can have with difficulty if at All outside. The Opportunity for the City to improve its own financial affairs markedly in 1939 is obvious. While trying to collect More of the Street assessments through the twelve percent bait the City Hall should not neglect this More constructive attack on the problem. Will be talked out there a some talk at Raleigh of consolidating the parole and the probation machinery. Probably nothing will come of it except talk. Rarely except in periods of such Stringency As to make necessary reorganization of government is machinery simplified. Raleigh is not feeling the Force of such pressure now As it was Felt there in 1933. As a matter of fact there is Good reason for considering consolidation of the two agencies. The work is very largely the same kind of work. Two years ago when the probation system was established the parole commissioner wanted it to be separate from his Agency. He contended that probation occurs before prison experience while parole takes place afterwards. This circumstance was advanced As a reason for the Contention that the approaches to the subject must differ. Nothing in the news indicates whether the parole commissioner has changed his mind about the matter or not. We assume that the existence of two agencies of responsibilities so nearly alike impressed some legislator As representing an undue a a overhead and so the agitation for consolidation. We repeat that we expect nothing to come of the talk. A safety speech Hitler now sets up As a Speed cop and we predict that he will be successful in his new role. He declares 50 Miles an hour As the top Speed for a Good nazi. Fancy anyone taking a Chance on being pulled not for violation of a traffic Law but for exceeding the Speed limit of a Patriot we have tried to identify Safe driving with Good citizenship but in a democracy it is difficult to make the Effort More than a rhetorical one. In Germany it is different. If the Driver Over there ignores the hint of the Leader off with his head. No doubt those in charge of tile safety program on North Carolina highways Are slightly envious As they grasp the difference Between a traffic Law Here and there. Hitler made a Brief speech on the subject of Highway safety at Berlin yesterday which we would estimate As being the most effective address on the subject since the automobile was invented. That a judgment in Advance of the proof. Would simplify the multiplying Trade and professional boards of the state moves the news and observer to suggest that the regulatory work of these agencies might he concentrated. Why not have one Board for Many that paper asks that suit the tradesmen and the professionals who want the regulating groups of course hut Here is the Raleigh papers viewpoint a rows Over the regulation of certain trades and professions by their own so called self governing boards suggests that a disinterested Board might do the Job in some cases quite As Well if not better. Furthermore since there Are now a Good number of these boards All of w hich collect fees in return for their regulatory activities it seems possible that the state might set up one Agency to regulate All these people who want their business regulated and put the fees collected into the general fund. A in More than one business it has been charged that what the practitioners seeking regulation wanted was not the Protection of the Public from poor practitioners but the Protection of themselves from More practitioners. A Little consolidation of regulating boards might prevent it Etty activities in the direction of monopoly and provide at least a Little Revenue at a time when every Little bit is less said about foreign alliances and entanglements the better. Let things Cool off a Bruce Catton says that while some people leave Washington for the South to escape cold weather the president it seems leaves to escape the a a heat a that is the heat of political pressure and criticism. Possibly that a Good psychology. An american gets no fun in shooting at a target when its out of Range. With Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people in the news Gastonia Gazette a with the president out of Washington for two Vve eks on a trip of inspection and fishing it May be that there will be no explosions to upset the status quo of the european situation for that space of time. The another of those changes mothers do your children play with matches do you want to train them out of the practise Here is the latest scientific Way Given me by or. Edwina a. Cowan director of the Wichita child research Laboratory an amazing institution which has its Headquarters in friends University Wichita Kansas. Students professors and psychologists from All Over the United states go there to learn the latest methods of handling childhood problems. This is the Way the Laboratory tackled the match problem. A Mother brought her boy Sammy to or. Cowan because he had a deep set obsession for playing with matches she lived in fear he would bum the House Down. He was incorrigible and when he was punished he would Start a fire for revenge. The fire department had to be called to put one fire he started. The Mother tried to make him understand How serious it was. She hid the matches but he took pieces of paper and set them afire from the stove. Nothing she said or did made the slightest difference. He was a a a firebug in the making. Or. Cowan applied the principles of psychology. She explained to Sammy that there were Only two reasons Why he play with matches first he might set fire to the House second. He might set his clothing on fire. She took him to the bathroom and explained that tile would not catch fire easily. Then she told him that if he caught fire he should dash water Over himself and put it out. She Drew water in the Wash Basin and in the Bathtub. Then she brought a chair and a Box of matches and told him to Light matches and have lots of fun. Sammy stared in astonishment. What All the matches he wanted he did no to even wait to sit Down. Eagerly he struck a match held it until it warmed his fingers and tossed it into the Bathtub then another. And another he had a wonderful morning. In and out of the bathroom and striking matches. After luncheon he was taken Back to his match heaven. He was brought Back the next Day. He could hardly wait. But the second afternoon he did t Light so Many. He wanted to play with other children. But he was ushered Back to match Headquarters. Gradually matches became uninteresting then a nuisance. Finally he began to hate the sight of them. Meantime his Mother was instructed not to keep matches from him. She was to leave them in sight and not caution him against using them. Match burning Sammy was cured. Cured by modern psychology. Instead of taking the thing away from him. He was Given his fill of it. The mystery was dissipated and the once forbidden pleasure became a dreadful bore. That is exactly the principle you can apply to your child who has contracted a harmful habit. Satiate him with it. Give him so much that he will form a dislike for it. You can also apply this psychology to situations in adult life. He said it democracy is not a hard and fast set of rules but it is a Way of living. Or. Oswaldo Aranha brazilian Diplomat on a Mission to Washington. Be Active and done to count the years mrs. Mary Adelman who recently died in Chicago after attaining an age of in. Dancing is the Only Art that can to wait to be appreciated. You can hang up a picture and wait for posterity a verdict but a dance must be immediately understood or it has failed. A Foster fit Simons Detroit dancer. There Are no National boundaries in the things of the . William Mather Lewis president of Lafayette College advocating that education attaches lie sent to legation As Well As military and naval. It is our generations destiny to make democracy live. A William o. Douglas chairman of the securities and Exchange commission.
