Key fact is this 71 percent of the a a Farmers reporting work off the farm classify their off farm occupation As nonagricultural Urban work. Problems that Rise from the City to suburb movement Are legion. Police and fire servicing embrace immediate and tangible difficulties.

Few save the poor feel for the poor. Al. E. Landen. Aspects of the French offer the War dominates thinking possibly undesirably. It is Dif a word Abolt c Campaign expenses solemnly legislators make Laws limiting Campaign expenditures and then proceed somewhat generally to violate them and to file Unea did reports about their own expenditures As they run for reelection or for other office. We Are pointing a Finger at no one candidate when we direct attention to the fact that the highest total expenditure yet admitted by any one of those seeking the democratic nomination for governor is $9,988.71 with donations totalling $2,2340. He was not the successful candidate but we repeat the one with the highest admitted expense account. The chances Are that several times that amount of Money was spent by any one of several can services of the fire department that efficient City governments provide. The fee system a a method of charging individual out of City Home owners for police and fire Protection a is a popular but not entirely practicable solution. If the City fire department for instance fails to respond to the pitiful plea of a non fee paying Home owner who lives on a paved Well lighted Street just across the City Boundary the City councilmen and the mayor Are branded As heartless parsimonious despots a arsonists after the fact. Nor can police prowl cars economically patrol a few dozen Homes of fee payers scattered in a densely populated suburban suburban area of 500 neighbouring dwellings. No City would have its policemen stand idly watching a trespasser prowl the Home of a resident who refused to his fee while the Homes of fee payers on each Side Are entitled to police Protection. Town and City governments Are resourceful. Some have found ways to meet their particular needs. Some City fire departments serve on a county level financed in part with county taxes. A few counties have Large Well organized police departments. Others help maintain City police departments with county wide jurisdictions. But these Are very few. The obvious solution is an Extension of City limits. Extensions of course were numerous last year in an Ach you re just seeing things under the bed limit to keep one s mind flee of i dates supporters and that Sev to citation of the census partly because now id if n Jomoc that la Uto q tny Al of of 8 fundamental Pride in big num it. The implications respecting Eilt a times that Laio a tote o but in Many More cases the pm our own future that Are in it Are deeply moving ones. We feel that we have a Large stake in its outcome. Interference with our manner of life to a great extent is almost inevitable. We face a new self discipline or a new discipline superimposed upon us. Each turn of the tide of the affair has a is tee a i significance for us. We speculate As to what is Forward today in the important theatres of the struggle. Frances offer to surrender with terms comes As a blow to american Hopes if not to her British allies. Speculation As to what will happen to the French Navy and air Fleet both of which Are declared a intact a is respecting what May be a Pivotal Factor. Why did not France instead of suing for peace and asking for terms permit the surrender of her armies in the Field while the government got out of reach that would leave France at War with Germany in Complete Possession of Continental France. The Navy and the air Fleet with the help of the members of the French Empire could cooperate with Britain to carry on the fight without a decent question of reprisals in France. Does retain handling of Frances Fate support the Rome charge that French hatred of Britain has become intense there was not a word in Petain a Public address cd out the ally. Does that mean total disaffection or was it nothing More than the avoidance of issues the Alliance might bring into the negotiations with the germans disadvantages in fighting at Home in both the world War and the present one the allies have based their strategy on defense the germans have based theirs on driving Power. We have a poignant illustration of the concept that the Best defense is a a vigorous Germany precipitated the Battle on foreign soil in every instance. In other Days when the most that an army in the Field could Hope to do in a Day was to Advance a few meager Miles there was something to be said for fighting on the Home grounds. In this Day of mobility and Speed the advantages Are reversed. Note the observation of French common soldiers frequently to the effect that the glutting of the roads with refugees handicapped them in All military movements. The enemy took no account of the difference Between one kind of blockade and another naturally the French had to consider the Fate of their own people in flight. The result was an inevitable Handicap. Ii England is to withstand donations was made. We doubt whether this statement can be controverted. We Are not charging a technical violation of Law in any Case we prove there is one. Flir themore we Are not being self righteous about the matter. But we Are saying that nothing like the Cost of political campaigning in North Carolina gets on the books of the Secretary of state. Tension elections failed to carry because suburban residents disapproved their being taken into the privilege of paying City taxes and in Many cases they brought pressure on Legislatures to kill Extension Bills in committees. In other cases City governments were reluctant to buy at fabulous prices the sewer electric water or Street systems built by suburban real estate speculators who walked when deals were proposed to protect the City. The Sibl ban problem in Carolina we have commented on the fact that much of the Home building in Urban communities of this state during the past ten years has occurred outside the incorporated towns and cities. The views of spokesmen for those towns and cities As to the effect of this development Are interesting. With Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people a girl thirteen years old was asked to recite a a piece in school. This pleased her immensely and she got out a Book of recitations and deed we get certain aspects of these e \ upon the famous old classic the in the current Issue of rattle of Blenheim. The big night came her father and Mother and Sis views in me current Issue Southern municipal news. The editor of the publication writes a the Bare fact of loss of population within the City limits because of developments of suburbs is not important. Population losses wont affect the economic strength of most municipalities since the suburban residents still work and spend in the Urban areas. Combined Urban and suburban population figures will generally exceed the combination in 1930. And this May be especially True of the that seems a logical conclusion. We quote further from the publication. What is important this movement of Urban population to suburban Sites is resulting in a shift of responsibility for Urban financing from a larger to a smaller number of taxpayers. The Burden of bonded indebtedness Narrows and the debt per capita increases the benefits of the City a fixed capital investments a a streets sewers water and Power lines and facilities for police and fire defense a reach fewer tax paying citizens. Scores of Southern newspapers recently quoted an article by Clark s. Hobbs in the Baltimore evening Sun entitled a a Maryland a second largest City a it has no writer Hobbs referred to Baltimore numerous contiguous developments where 150 to 200 thousand people dwell beyond the Pale of City taxes. Many another Southern City is in relatively the same position a towns of 15,-000 population with three to five thousand souls in their unincorporated suburbs. It is essential to keep these suburban populations in mind when the City a practical population is determined. Only with them car the chamber of Commerce measure buying Power labor resources and other economic factors. It must be remelt Breed also that the department of Public works and the traffic division of the police department Are concerned because the suburban population contributes to the vehicular traffic Load of City streets. Extra Urban population affects every City department and is the variable of calculations in the City plan. This is not an Idle Point. The suburban dwellers Are City people. The census reports indicate a Sharp increase in the number of so called Small farm in Ilia neighbourhood at a a a Ltd ? a a a Quot r Walter winches on Broadway _ Trad my 0pyrt�t. In. Daily mar rare or o ters and Brothers were there to see her do herself proud. But she did t do herself proud.

This is the Telegram she sent Back �?o1 11 come for $1,500 a the movie company thought she meant $150 and wired to see if the Telegraph company had added a cipher by mistake. Her wire Back read a i am the one who made the mistake. Fifteen Hundred a week is too Well. She got the Job. And that is the Story of the girl who made such a mess of a the Battle of Blenheim that she ran off the stage.
