We May wish for her a life Richer and Fuller than it could be for anyone constantly catering to the general Public and appreciate the fact that she leaves the movies before the Sweet illusions of her entrancing work Are disturbed for the millions who have enjoyed her talented childhood. Concerning petition for building permit the High Point Board of adjustment had a request before it Nowr of More than Ordinary Public interest. The request is for a permit to allow the erection of a gasoline filling station on a site within the first Block of English Street. The site is on the North Side of English Street at a Point where College Street dead ends. The declared purpose of the City from time to time is to open College through to Elm at least for the Relief of the great traffic congestion of main Street. No Structure should be erected on the site in question without deliberation of its effect on this ultimate necessity a the Extension of College Street. At prefer re a curb Market occupies part of the site sought to be converted into a filling station. The proposal for construction of anything resembling a permanent business place on it seems to us to Call for joint consideration of the Board of adjustment and the City Council. Friendly suggestion for state police one of the worst traffic jams Guilford has experienced occurred on the Winston Salem Greensboro Road in the Vicinity of the tri City Airport yesterday. The air show Drew an extraordinary crowd of motorists but not even the huge crowd could justify the amazing blockade of a main Road As it was blockaded at the time of the breaking up of the show. State police were in charge. They were there in considerable Force but they have much to learn about How to handle a traffic Jam. We would suggest to the commander of the state patrol that he witness one instance of the handling of a traffic Jam by the police in or near Baltimore for instance and then have his men instructed in traffic management by someone who knows How to handle a real crowd. Certain aspects of one state contest not often does on of the larger newspapers in this state take enough Intel est in the result of contests Between members of the same party for nominations in primaries to make known their preferences. A present instance of exception is that of the Charlotte observer apparently out and out for Pete Murphy of Rowan for Secretary of state. Hon. Walter Murphy better known As Pete has been a warhorse of his party for longer than 40 years. He was a member of the 1897 legislature if we Are not mistaken and he has Bien a mighty Force in legislative circles almost continuously since. Now he wants to be Secretary of state. When Al Smith then governor of new York was invited to North Carolina to talk to our official family about How a state government can be streamlined he had reduced new Yorkus from 99 agencies to 17, if our memory serves us he told the Secretary of state then Stacey Wade that the office was an aggrandised clerkship. Certainly it is an office in which the career men a the let oys and girls who remain administration after administration a do most of the work and can do it All. The present Youthful Holder of the office Thad Eure a far East Erner seeks renomination and the Charlotte observer advocates or. Murphy partly on the basis of the fact that the u est does not get its share of state offices. There is a mighty Good other special reason which is giving Pete Murphy strength in the Cam j >t1l he . I it history and traditions of the state than any other Man in Public life. He would be an asset at Raleigh As historian extraordinary at any time and he would be especially desirable there now when the state is developing tourist interest and needs Good North Carolina tale tellers. If or. Murphy lands the Job we Hope he will leave the work to Max Abernethy and the girls As his predecessors have done and devote most of his time to cultivating visitors from out of the state and keenly interested children from the schools within the state. Pete Murphy will be Worth his salary if he lands for that service alone. With a a Dale. Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people in 1893 a panic swooped Down on the country like a Mink on a Chicken pen. Arthur e. Stilwell was trying to build what is now the Kansas City Southern railway. He needed Money three million dollars. The Only Chance for him to raise that amount of Money was in Holland but he knew no one in Holland he had no powerful connections. But if that was where the Money was then that was the place to go. So Arthur e. Stilwell started to Holland to raise three million dollars but done to think he went on a wild Goose Chase. He had a splendid reputation and he had All the credentials any one could ask for. He recalled that once on a sightseeing trip he had met a Hollander but for the life of him he could not remember his name All that he could fish out of the past was that the Man was in the Coffee business. He thought that lie might recognize the name if he saw it in print so when he arrived in Holland he went to the Coffee Exchange and looked at the list of members. There it was John de Geol Jen. An unusual name. What was to be his next step instead of Rushing directly to his Prospect he first Learned All he could about him. He spent two Days doing this. He looked up the name of the boat on which they had met the name of the Captain and the names of some of the passengers on the third Day he presented himself at the hollanders office. The Man was to based to see him and to learn that or. Stilwell had remembered so much about him. They had dinner together and talked of their former association. The Hollander liked the affable american and was flattered because he had come to Sec him. Or. Stilwell then told him that he was financing a Railroad and offered the Hollander a Job for three years As foreign representative. The Man was doubly interested now and after going into details agreed to act As representative. Through him or. Stilwell was Able to meet the financiers of Holland. The Stock was prepared for Sale a Camj Saign was mapped out. And the Stock was put on the Market. Small investors stampeded to get in. In 27 minutes after the doors of the bourse were opened the Stock Issue was snapped up he had his three million dollars. He took the Money Back to Kansas City and completed his Railroad and did such an outstanding Job that his Road built one third of the new mileage for the whole United states for 1893. The Pivotal Point was the Way he approached the one Man he knew in Holland. He Learned All he could about him before he saw him he placed the Man under obligation to him gave him responsibility and procured his cooperation in raising the Money. The town of port Arthur.

All the opposition against for is Irene Only Bruce Cotton in Washington maritime Union Row with government n a ring fire Wor k s Washington. May 13�?�?Tthe longstanding Row Between c. I. National maritime Union and the Bureau of Marine inspection and navigation is beginning to break into the open. Biggest maritime Union complaint is the charge the Bureau has been antiunion and has used its Powers under the navigation Laws to j discipline militant Union men while let a steamship own-�-0- trailers off with a slap on the wrist. Bruce cation Early this month the Union distributed about Washington a pamphlet summing up its charges demanding a revision of policies by the Bureau and calling for dismissal of the bureaus director. Commander r. S. Field. This win touch off some fireworks. The Bureau is a part of the department of Commerce and hence it responsible to Harry Hopkins. It is an open secret that top department people Arentt wholly satisfied with the bureaus record and that certain changes Are in the cards. There will he an immediate backfire however if anything of the kind comes on the heels of the Union s pamphlet. For the rumours of an impending shake up in the Bureau sound to some congressmen like Advance announcements of a a surrender to the c. I. and some ardent anti new dealers Are already collecting ammunition. Right to strike is Basic Issue Basic cause of the trouble is disagreement Over when and How a Sailor May strike. It s pretty generally agreed a sink while a ship is on the High seas is either Mutiny or something very much like it. The Union however argues that while a ship is at Anchor or at Dock in a port the seamen May strik without incurring any More penalties than factory hand ashore would incur. Commander Field does t see it that Way. As Field interprets the Law. Once a Sailor has signed articles aboard ship he is under contract. Under that interpretation a sit Down strike by men who have signed on is illegal even though the ship May he tied up at wharf. Field Points out. However a mar May not he held to involuntary Servi tilde aboard ship if a Crew wants to strike 11 it members May imply go Ashir or desert ship without suf a Lei my any i entity other than forfeiture of pay. Bureau caught in old Union Rou of a certain extent the Bureau a been caught in the old a. F. . I. Crossfire. Under the navigation Lawi As revised in 1936.
