I Inquired ought to" replied the boss "and It often has But In this particular case It didn't and for Just one reason "The man who was In line for the editor's Job Is as everybody in the shop knows competent and able and understands all the ins and outs of the place "But when a crisis comes up he will not take responsibility He Is always afraid and a man on a newspaper which is continually up against questions of policy be afraid I'd forgive him for making mistakes but I never will forgive a man for dodging" A noted archeologist has discovered that mankind had no conscience 3000 years before Christ Come to think about it it has nore too much of it 2000 years after But as I stand here adding to the overproduction of gas nothing tears at my heart like the realization that in this ggraduatlng class there are as always a certain number of boys destined to become bond salesmen I can Imagine no field where the prospect is so bleak unlers It be In the business of designing neckties for Mahatma Gandhi When I think of a young man trying to sell securities In these days I go weak all over Copyright tv PttAHe Itdgtr i Everyday Questions Lest I seem too gloomy let ms say that I am aware there are some members of this class for whom the immediate future is not dark They will I know get work and go on to fame and fortune I refer to the students who during their college ypars have shown ability as southpaw pitchers radio tenors and dance orchestra leaders Manhattan Days And Nights Answered by Dr Parkes Cadman By WALTER TRUMBULL This same condition I am sure exists In many concerns besides newspapers The responsible man must not be afraid of responsibility Some of his decisions are bound tod go wrong but even If they do and he gets In hot water over them that Is better than running away from trouble I have known men to lose their Jobs through over-confidence but rarely and the men who thus euffered had more confidence la themselves than their abilities Justified I have known trouble dodgers to keep their places for a long time by "passing the in an emergency or doing nothing when something should have been done But they all have lost out In the end aa they deserved to This world is full of trouble and It is better to meet it even if results are bad than to run away from It As well might a prize fighter follow the motto that he who fights and runs away will live to fight another day A good many pugilists have modelled thetr careers on that plan but none of them ver got a championship Come what may however your years here have not been wasted You have absorbed certain invaluable things that will be a satisfaction throughout your lives ask me to name them That is my story and I am paid to stick to It I pause and call attention to our outstanding graduates Where are they And how murh are they out?

The effect on our young people is most harmful Motion pictures of an objectionable character present an extremely difficult social problem Considerable ability is necessary to invent and dramatize a plot that culminates in a striking and popular representation of life which at the same time illuminates and elevates the mind and heart of the average audience But if there is not sufficient demand by the public for pictures of the latter type what are we to do? As the case now stands the lack of originality now apparent In the average scenario is pathetic Hence the tendency on the part of producers to fall back on appeals to sex instinct and morbid curiosity These purveyors to National weakness draw aside the curtain which is supposed to hide the immoralities either of the city the countryside or of history The results thus secured are cheap easy to produce and what is more to the point they pav well Until genuine artists with a conscience come into the business as producers directors and creators we shall be at the mercy of those whose animating purpose is all too often to exploit base impulses for private profits At any rate that will be the situation until the cleaner ideas of censorship become either a written or unwritten law Then business men and investors will not be so ready to put up their money for the production of films which may be rendered worthless by an adverse judgment or an injunction against their release to the public It will take some time to make such censorship truly effective but if necessary it will be accomplished If the leaders of the motion picture industry do not know how to conduct it as they should they will have to be taught The cost to them may be high indeed but the preservation of the Nation's morale is of infinitely higher consequence We can do without if we must but we can never do without morals if we are to continue to exist as a civilized nation Charlotte will have the opportunity to see a very practical demonstration of modern Christianity here this week when the several hundred delegates to the 33rd annual Christian Endeavor convention gather tomorrow for a three-day meeting Embodied with this gathering will be that new age of Christianity that combines smiling faces with worship to the utter banishment of the proverbial long face of our Christianity These youngsters have been taught and are learning that a singing and a happy heart can worship the Deity with just as much and more reverence than if the service is overcast with gloom This is getting away from the old theory of sackcloth and ashes It is the modern theory of sunshine and freshness replacing things and places concerning worship that are dark and stuffy And this new viewpoint of religion and religious worship is just about the only thing in this day and age that is attracting the bojs and girls into the church and church activities Christian Endeavor and Christian Endeavor methods conform with all of the ideas of the joy of living that young people are given by nature to hold as an inalienable right It will be interesting for Charlole reputed to be the second greatest church-going city in the world to watch these several hundred young people and their activities and programs at Queens-Chicora College Wednesday Thursday and Friday Not So Very Tough If all who know some man or woman who has fallen by the way would emulate the Good Samaritan as you do we should salvage a great many more social derelicts than we do Be sure and tell your friend that no matter what he reads the struggle and its outcome are decided by him with God ever present at his right hand to aid every upward motion of his heart I suggest the following books as a possible source of assistance: "The Lure of by Vaughan (Holt Co Psychology" by John Adams Doubleday Doran) "The Enlargement of by Denison (Seribners) Motives of by George A Coe (Scribners) Stream of by Geoffrey Parsons (Scribners) "Morals of by Ralph Sockman (Harpers) and Victor" by John Oliver (Macmillan) "Fear: The Autobiography of James Edwards" by John Oliver (Macmillan) "Microbe by Paul de Kruif (Harcourt Brace) History of Science" by Dampier Whetham (Macmillan) "Since by Philip Gibbs (Harpers) Second Twenty Years at Hull by Jane Addams (MacMillan) and in a Changing by Abba Silver (Richard Smith) Fort Wayne Ind If you and your church members were as honest as you pretend to be you would admit that rich men have no place in the doctrine of Jesus your founder? Why not fellow His teaching? The Catcn In Husbandry Last Spring I observed: "If a garden I grow Filled with lettuce and spinach and beans Mv dally expenses will run very low And perhaps I shall husband my means Why pay out my cash for the green-grocer's stuff When my family all may be fed From a garden that furnishes more than enough And at merely a few cents per head?" Somehow It still Isn't quite clear Jeas Sweetaer famous golfpr has re-entered Wall Street What the average Investor would like to know Is whether It ir all right to use aandwedge to get out of the I always have been Interested in Inventions I do not mean tne steamboat eewlng machine telegraph telephone gas engine or airplane I know that those are wonderful things and that ws couldn't get along very fast without them but any one of them la too complicated for me to understand I like to drive an automobile but I have no great mechanical knowledge of what make It go And I like to ride In an airplane without any too clear an Idea of what makes It stay up Besides we Just take thoae great Inventions for granted and let otheis worry concerning their construction and operation I did try to find out once about a sewing machine It was not a successful Investigation As I remember I was trying to sew a patch on a pup tent and I haven't heard the last of It yet Of course It might have been a Just a small jib or something of the sort It was a long time ago but I well remember that It resulted in words You might have thought I was trying to ruin the machine Such unjust things were said that I haven't taken a sewing machine out of its garage since But the Inventions in which I always am most Interested are the smaller ones the gadgets and thingumbobs the inventions you see around the house in the windows of drug and hardware stores I know that Ericsson was the Inventor of the monitor that Davis Invented the refrigerator freight car that Lake Invented the submarine But those are not gadgets for the home The real benefactors of the fireside have been such men as Hunt who thought up the safety pin There was a humanitarian Inventors are supposed to lead hard lives although I notice that Tom Edison George Eastman the Pullmans the Goodyears and a few others seem to have done well But as a rule Inventors are assumed -o be a class who make money for others Then too Inventions go out of style Hyatt for example Invented celluloid but you rarely see a celluloid collar nowadays I did see one on a noted Englishman who visited this country but aa a general thing they are out Inventions along feminine lines are especially precarious Women are notably fickle addicted to change Where now are the curling-irons kid curlers bustles and other inventive elds to beauty which used to grace the home? I know a man who like myself Is deeply attracted by inventions for the kitchen One day he bought a sort of maglo cabinet which was supposed to do about everything for the family except the actual eating It would peel potatoes beat eggs wash dishes but It was not a big success It seems that the machine really was Intended for a hotel It scorned to peel one potato its minimum capacity being about a bushel Besides the man's wife was on a diet and eat potatoes I got Into a hardware store by myself some years ago My wife always has said that nobody who was not present when they arrived ever could Imagine the number of useful inventions I bought It took a couple of days to put them away and several seasons get rid of them to So I bought me a spade and a rake and a hoe And a few dozen pockets of seeds And read up on methods of making them grow So they shortly might serve all my needs The aphldea and beetles did mischief of course But these vermin on poison I fed And watched them with never a pang of remorse While they fell from the plants cold and dead Frank McErlane long called the toughest of all Chicago gunmen seems to have gone completely insane He was picked up by police after he stood on a street corner and blazed frantically away at empty space with two shotguns and when he insisted that he was beating off a swarm of foes they prepared to ship him of! to some quiet hospital Those familiar with the situation saj thst fear of his underworld enemies caused the man lose his mind and that fact sheds a repealing light on the stature of the average gangster This McErlane remember was the toughest pf the tough But common every-day cowardice drove him insane I Where then is the tie-man ruggedness the emotionless self-control the square-jawed self-reliance that the gangster is supposed to possess? Or is the average gangster perchance just a powardly rat?

ITS CHIEF BERWICK About the Only time Congress affords the country any relief is when it adjourns First let us find out what it was Plainly Jesus did not discriminate against men of wealth On the contrary He accepted their friendship received a prosperous publican into His discipleship and loved the young ruler with great possessions who failed to meet the test He imposed on him This attitude harmonizes with all we know of the Master since we cannot conceive Him repudiating a teeking soul of any rank or condition Yet Jesus also thoroughly understood the peculiar perils of wealth and warned those who heard Him against them "IIow hardly bhnll they that have riches enter the Kingdom of Heaven" is a divine verity enforced by human expr-rience Not a few rich men of the predatory kind need to be taught that there are ministers who and churches which cannot be bribed into rondomng their offenses The fortune of one man which is built on the ruin of thousands of men or obtained by methods outraging every instinct of right and justice will yet sink his soul into the gieat abyss But the fortune of another man who honestly accumulated it by creative ability and also by Its means increases the welfare and happiness of his fellows entitles him lo greater functions and responsibilities hereafter This is Christ's doctrine in discourse and parable and they are wise who heed it He did not oppose wealth as such though He preferred the poverty He exemplified He absolutely revoked the rule that in hard game the weak must go to the wall He as LOOK AT THE FAY-ROLL Some economists contend thst the country hag outgrown Us government but It our belief that the government has outgrown the country Copyright 1931 for The News Some arc almost ready to submit 'he Ten Commandments to a Rev Dr Hugh Kerr Pittsburgh Pa We was eating supper being stake under onions and rna sed Perfessor Rambler gave us a very intrlsting tawk at the club meeting this afternoon it was on the subjeck of making the beet use of our time and ho delt In particular with the habit of reeding newspapers in general He claimed that If the average person spent the time In serious etudy that they spend reeding newspapers in a few years they would have a nollege of history sufficient for a llfe'lme or else they would know so much about astronomy that If they just looked up at the sky they would know Immredttly everything that was going on up there ma Red There a a lot of truth In that pop Red After all what ha a man found out after he's spent 2 solid hours poring over the days paper?

Many explanations aie forthcoming One Is that Dixieland Is so railed bemuse it lies south of the Mason Dixon line A mote plausible explanation Is that It got Rs nams from the fart that one of the laigest landholder and slave oxnera in the South during the prr-Clvll War davs wa a ft man named Dlxte People go) Into the hnhit of referring to hi territorial holdings ss "Dixieland' or the land of "Dixie" and both these expressions soon became entrenched in the Southern lexicon Another and perhaps reasons explanation is the fact that in the early dajs of our country's history the ten-dollar hank notes which were Issued In the fctate of Louisiana had the word "dlx" engraved on them meaning ten In FTeneh This was due to the large Freni population of that section And It 1 Just conceivable that in the Course of time the extreme South era pm Mon of the country should have come to be referred to as th land of "Olsioa" Limitation of armaments has not yet gore so far as to include merchant vessels but it is evident that merchant fleets are indispensable auxiliaries to war Captain George Steele Jr naval officer The moat successmul Inventors ol today appear to he those who are working on liquids I know one msn who claims he can make champagne out of parsnips end he certainly ha succeeded to some extent It practical deceives the Is only when you taste It that you dU cover the invention is In the formative stage Inventors of labels they tell me have achieved even more sucres Economy Is Responsible Mrted the principle of stewardship and not of absolute ownership in A rcv) title study of the 18th amendment by some of the best minds of the Country reveals the fact that it does not curtail ror destroy ordered Dr Walter Dexter When Dickens wrote "Oliver Twist" it was generally taken for granted that Fagln the professional corrupter of youth was about as aeoundrelly a character as any novelist could invent too seoundielly to exist in real life Compared with tome of the underworld rets of today however Fagln looks almost like a gentleman What for example would Dlzkens make of the Cleveland bootlegger who was convicted of hiring a 15-year-old boy to undertake the dangerous work of liquor from rival bootleggers at $5 a gallon?
