Rho state has been soothed ring the present administrate tile continuous contacts Beer n the governor and the peo have convinced the most Crit 1 of 193b that North Carolina voted a democratic and finely gaming Man to Quot a governor. End. Ralph Mcdonald de item candidate in the bitter Pri Irv pays a neat tribute to tile senior and has no word of Idem nation for his policies. A rest for even a Brief it it Ilmi the probing of the tax assail in new directions is a Gra us Relief. The administration is to be Bent upon getting a Ough to the close without such it Bing. There appears to be lit likelihood of a revolt in the neral Assembly against a pol of living beyond current in be. The reserves of general 1 Highway funds will permit a state to go two years longer this Way. But there is a Short greater than improving busies conditions and increasing venues from old levies Are Apt make up. The general As ably two years hence and the Rumor of that time Are to lace Oblenis complicated by the 1939 isolation. N government As in other of a of life perhaps sufficient o the Day is the evil and the no the thereof. Many troubles n ahead prove to be mirages t we Are unpleasantly aware he dependence of present pub service finance upon Malad Ted taxation heavily accented the diversion of Highway us from an obsolescent and Iii Road system. Will the next senior of North Carolina face it painful necessity others have cd of inviting Public Disfavour digging in new and old quark for millions More Money to up up the Public service Voith. Bankrupting the Road system. A Sti my in contrasts labor leaders on the Pacific ast closer to the japanese real than is tile East protest inst. The shipment of scrap in to Japan. They dislike its event use in tile chinese War gtd Are averse to furnishing the raw material for the making of a War Between Japan and Russia. An interesting study in contrasts is afforded by two pictures of the american scene the rapid loading of foreign registry freighters with scrap Iron bound for Japan and the stubborn refusal of the Secretary of the department of the Interior to sell Germany he Lium Gas for use in dirigible on the theory that the Gas might be employed for military purposes. Two opinions Are tenable respecting Germany a honorable restraint in the matter of using the Gas. There is no question whatsoever about Japan a use of the Serai Iron or its importance to the Empire at War. Iron is a japanese need which must he tilled if she is to fight a modern Battle. Helium Gas is an additional safeguard for air navigation Iii inflated ships. Even american military commanders question its Large importance in War. We will not help Arm Germany but we greedily yield to Japan s bidding for an essential War material. Only a seer who can penetrate the veil of the future could Tell us whether Germany with whom we have a definite Strong blood relationship or totally alien and aspiring Japan is the american enemy to be most truly feared. Deal quite openly a feeling of uncertainty respecting the City a hydroelectric project is general in High Point. To some extent this state of mind is attributable to and justified by the fact that a few Legal hurdles Aie to let of crossed. The Enterprise suggests to the City Hall that full publicity be Given All important Steps in this matter before irrevocable action. Particularly Are the More thoughtful business men and other citizens interested in the factual Ami Legal a contract to lie made the Bonds Are to in the r it Eop a have a spouts of the under w hich issued. Been assured that these Bonds will not be a full Faith and credit Quot Ohi Gaiu Revenue Bonds. Tile Plant stand or fall in its own s and weakness the City ii told. But if the City Counci ahead with the project pie will want As full a respecting that Point As be Given. The possibility Plant might in set up tis but would length is been is going the peos u ranges they can that j he o that it would be an indirect if not direct Drain on the taxpayers exists. S present Dis Tribu in unless the City t Ion system it in its Low w current and in income indirect i than would be simple dedication to an Ideal. Or. Hillman is demonstrably right in his assertion thai a labor movement cannot exist in a totalitarian state. Labors High responsibility is to promote efficiency and an increasing degree of democracy in government of both the country and its own organization. In the news Statesville daily a the state controlled Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad shows a loss for 1938, but it provided jobs for a number of political appointees whose business it was to make it Are we living in 1939 or 1938? Union Herald a Over 1,300 writers and labor leaders have been arrested in Japan within a Little More than one year for having spread a dangerous anti War thoughts Quot among japanese labor. It is estimated that 700,000 or 800.000 japanese workers will be out of jobs when the raw materials for making other than War materials Are so labor is in the a seventh heaven Quot in America if conditions Here Are to be compared with those in Japan. The arrest of the writers brings up that old saying of Napoleon to the effect that he feared one newspaper More than All the armies of his enemies. Lviv i As i Vav no.

He u warn you be v of is ahead Hole a copy of the Ani j larded wholesale rate for its free use of its try the hydroelectric Plant could affect the local and Valorme tax rate quite As much As a full Faith and credit Bonds Quot would effect it. The people Are interested in a Clear understanding As to whether the Federal government will finance the Plant without any attachment on High Point pocketbooks. The effect of the indirect draft could be As punishing As the direct if an open Market rate for current were not assured. Let All the facts about the contract and the Legal questions respecting the safeguarding of the City lie made known and that Well in Advance of commitment by the City from which it cannot withdraw. Labor and the isms undoubtedly efforts have been made and continue to be made by communistic agitators to infiltrate and influence the Union labor movement. There have been times when they seemed to in making some headway in that direction in the United states. The Abler leaders of labor have declared their americanism from time to time and none in More impressive language i ban that used by Sidney Hillman. Or. Hillman said a the labor movement is More keenly aware than Ever before in my time of the necessity of opposing All the isms. There can be no existence of an organized labor movement in any communist fascist or nazi country therefore labor must fight any menace to democratic that is a statement of political principle much More convincing might have said Quot what 9 you can to break in like got to wait your turn. A i Here is another Cus of you. Sit Down there a which is the better Way old child could figure i do it Thi bundt year appear wan wrong is of i Way do y cd you be Way. That thousands of suppose the guessed it Bank spends of dollars each advertising for business but it Nutly does t spend a Penny in training its Doorman to be gracious and kindly and make customers glad they came in. Tho manager of this Branch sits All Day Long within fifteen feet of this bungling Doorman in uniform and he does no to do anything about it. Instead of condemning the Doorman. Let s try to understand Why he acts As he docs. First we can be pretty sure that he has never thought the mat Tor out with himself. Second he wants a feeling of importance and Higi to it by lording it Over the people who come in. If they unknowingly break a Rule to shows them who is Boss and. In doing so. To makes them regret that they did no to go in the Hank across Tho Way. To does what every fool does. Rut he get a far More satisfying feeling of importance if he said to himself Quot i am going to i1 above fools. I am going to use diplomacy and i Ani going to he polite. I am going to do something that requires a cultivated brain. When someone has to wait for an appointment 1 11 make him Admire my ability to Deal with which method do you use the one that drives people from you or the one that draws people toward you your ability or inability to make people like you in every Day situations will have a marked effect on your in trend hips your happiness your prestige and perhaps your income.

A t h t Man who delivers your special delivery letters feels that he is the victim of a Peculiar kind of injustice and he wants something done about it. The Crux of his complaint is that although he works for the Post office de part men t he is not technically a Post office employee. He was one. Once a just Long i enough to lose a Bruce Cattou Good part of his pay out he Isnit now. Head like to be one so that he can got civil service status and retirement pay. There a a Chance that he May be taken care of at this session of Congress. There Are approximately 3500 special delivery messengers in the various first class pos offices of the country. They Are paid on a fee basis 9 events for each letter delivered to cents for packages weighing less than two pounds 15 cents for packages weighing from two to to pounds and 20 cents for larger packages. They have to provide their own autos and buy their own gasoline and Oil. Here is their Case they Are making their complaint through George w. Warfel legislative representative of the National association of special delivery messengers an a. F. Of l. Union. Or. Warfel sums up their complaint thus in the fall of 1932 a government pay Cut was put through and the comptroller general ruled that the special delivery messengers were Post office employees that the Cut applied to them. So the messengers took a reduction in their fees amounting roughly to to per cent running through three fiscal years. All in All says or. Warfel this Cost them a total of from $1,500,000 to $2, 000,000. In 1934, then the messengers asked that retirement benefits be made available to them. Other Post office employees contribute some 3 1-2 per cent of their pay to build up a pension und at this Point however the department ruled that the messengers weren t Post office employees at All said they were contractors engaged by the individual postmasters and hence could not get in on the retirement fund. That was that. The messengers went along under the status of contractors hoping that some Day they would be Able to get reclassified. Last year they thought they had their Chance when president Roosevelt issued his civil service classification order. Another ruling was sought but it came out the same Way attorney general Cummings held that they still were contractors.,not employees. This Winter they tried again asking a ruling from attorney general Murphy. They had High Hopes because of or. Murphy. They had High Hopes because of or. Murphy outspoken desire to get As Many government workers As possible under civil service but Murphy ruled that let a cause of precedent and common usage the messengers were contractors Willy Nilly unless and until Congress should reclassify them. Beek refund congressman John dinged Michigan Democrat is trying to get Congress to do exactly that. He has brought in a Bill we hich w Ould put the messengers in a body under civil service status make them definitely pm Jil Oyes. And enable them to come under the retirement fund provisions. He is about to introduce another Bill to refund the Money which was taken from them under the old Economy Cut. A if these people Are contractors and not employees somebody owes them some Money a he remarks. A a it a High time it was paid. These people have been kicked around Long enough. Under the Economy act they were employees when it comes to civil service. They re contractors. Incidentally they re the Only group in the Post office department that Isnit under civil Warfel remarks that the common Conception of a special delivery messenger As a youngster just out of High school is a Way off. The average messenger he says is around 30 years of age a family Man. With considerable length of service and with a Gros it annual income of from $1500 to perhaps $2600 a year out of which he must pay All costs of his automobile which on an average he will drive 2000 Miles a month in the course of his duties.
