LEADING SEMI-WEEKLY OF
TO BE ISSUED
ONCE EACH WEEK
Today’s paper, Monday, June 30,
is the last News-Herald to be issued
on Monday, the management having
decided that in the future the paper
will be printed as a weekly being
published every Thursday and reach

A better county paper in every
way will be the aim of the publish

From many angles a good weekly
paper is more to be desired than a
paper issued oftener but smaller and
with news in brief. The page size of
twenty-two inches deep by seven
columns wide will be continued and
as many pages as necessary to carry
all county news and desirable state
and national news will be issued.
Subscribers will during the course of
their subscription receive as many
inches of news as though the paper
was issued twice each week.
Issued as a weekly the paper will
also contain Arthur Brisbane’s col

strips, and the latest news pictures
of the U. S.
Our county correspondents, now
fifty in number and the best writers
of community news we believe that
any county paper can boast of, will

OF SEN. GEORGE
Madison Square Garden, N. Y.—
After sweltering in Madison Square
garden all day and listening to itera
tions of the merits of light and dark
horses in the race for the Democratic
nomination for the presidency, mem
bers of the Georgia delegation re
laxed delightfully at a dinner given
them in a private room of the Wal
dorf-Astoria hotel Thursday night
by United States Senator Walter F.
George, of Georgia. The occasion
was the most delightful social af
fair yet tendered the Georgians in
the metropolis, and it was enjoyed
Senator George had given orders
for the famous Waldorf chef to try
himself on the Georgia delegation,
and the menu was sumptous and
southern in character and prepara
tion. It was a six course dinner
served to about 100 present and for
mer Georgians, as the invitations
extended by Senator Geoige includ
ed the .entire Georgia party attend
ing the national convention.
Senator George is not one of the
most talkative men in the senate,
but he is always on the job, and is
especially effective in committees
where the real work of the senate is
transacted,” Mr. Tiller said. “You
know senators are something like
women. If they do too much talking
they are poor housekeepers.”
Major John S. Cohen, national
committseman-elect from Georgia,
lauded the women of the Georgia
delegation as the most dignified, the
most reserved, the most ladylike and
the most aristocratic of any delega
tion in the national convention. He
congratulated Senator George on his
wisdom in the appointment of his
secretaries, Mr. Wilson, Miss Orr
and Miss Morris, who were the as
sistant host and hostesses. H. H.
Dean, of Gainesville, called upon
George Carson, of Commerce, Con
federate veteran and honorary dele
gate-at-large, for an old fashioned
rebel yell. Mr. Carson called for a
show of hands of all present who
were direct descendants of Confed
erate veterans, and every hand in
the room went up.
The Georgia delegation went
through some trying times during
the specially prepared demonstration
for A 1 Smith Thursday afternoon,
as the Georgians are regarded as the
leaders in the cause of William G.
McAdoo. There had been a plan to
grab the Georgia banner and carry
it in the Smith parade, but when the
East Siders found the banner sur
rounded by Senator O. A. Nix, Char
lie Brown, Albert Foster, Sidney
Camp and other upstanding and out
spreading Georgians with their jaws
set for any eventuality, they decided
to merely taunt and jeer as they
marched by the silent Empire State
delegation. There had been a plan
to sweep all opposing delegates off
the floor and out of the hall, but
this plan also ha'd to be abandoned
because the south and west refused
to be stampeded.
Many Georgians who have been
regular visitors on the convention
floor and had honest-to-goodness
passes were refused admittance
Thursday, while A 1 Smith supporters
were let into the hall on no other
credentials except Smith buttons. Al
most the entire police department
was present to see that every one
except the Smith supporters be
Strange as it may seem, the Smith
demonstration was gratifying to the
Georgians, for they saw the New
York governor could muster only
thirteen state banners in line, while
Williem G. McAdoo had gathered
twenty-eight on the preceding day.
James D. Robinson and Albert
Howell, of Atlanta, were on the
stage during the Thursday proceed
There was another special show
for the newspaper men covering the
convention at the Columbia theater
Thursday night, with many of the
Georgia delegates present. It started
at midnight and lasted until daylight.
The Georgia delegation went into
the fourth day of the convention de
termined to lead in the fight of the
McAdoo supporters for early ballot
ing on the presidential candidate,
following a declaration by Mr. Mc-
Adoo that social engagements should
be cut out and business attended to.
It has been known for some time
that the plan of campaign of the Al-
Smith supporters was based on tac
tics that would delay voting and
wear out the delegates who have
come from a distance. Most of Gov
ernor Smith’s strength is in the com
muting district of New York City.
FARMERS ARE AIDED
BY COUNTRY BANKS
Atlanta, Ga., June 26.—Country
j banks which have joined the federal
reserve system and thereby given
themselves access to a large reservoir
of credit are taking a big hand in
community agricultural development,
in the opinion of leading Gecrgia
The smaller banks which have a
membership in the federal reserve
system, it was pointed out, are in a
better position to aid. the farmers
than those outside the system, and in
nany instances are meeting agricul
tural needs which hitherto found it
necessary to deal direct with the big
The Federal Reserve Bank of At
lanta, which covers the sixth federal
district, composed of the states of
Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennes
see, Mississippi and Louisiana, pro
vides large credit accommodations to
the agricultural interests, but in ev
:ry instance these accommodations
are handled through the member
banks scattered throughout the six
states. M. B. Wellborn, governor of
the Federal Reserve Bank here, said
today that agricultural paper carried
by the Atlanta hank showed beyond
question that the smaller banks of the
district are rendering great assistance
to the farmers, much more than they
could possibly do as non-members
with restricted credit.
“Country banks are doing a big
work in promoting better methods of
production in their respective com
munities,” said Governor Wellborn.
“And there is no dsputing the fact
that these banks by helping their
communities also help themselves.
Bankers and farmers in many sec
tions of the south are getting closer
together for their mutual growth and
protection, and it will be the policy
of the federal bank, as it has been in
the past, to render every possible as
sistance to its members which in turn
are extending a helping hand to the
Among the things being done by
country banks are financing the im
portation and distribution of pure
bred cattle, developing the interest of
>oys and girls in better farming by
organizing pig, sheep, calf, poultry
md garden clubs, promoting greater
crop diversification, promoting local
dairy, financing creameries, and gen
eral agricultural development. Banks
in a number of sections, it was stated,
have increased their deposits many
times as the result of community ag
“No fair-minded man will dispute
that the present unfortunate plight of
the American farmer is largely the
result of discriminating legislation,”
said C. W. McClure, Atlanta merchant
and capitalist, in a statement made to
the correspondent of this news ser
vice. “So long as the judiciary, legis
lative and administrative branches of
our government are composed of only
3 per cent farmers, what relief can
be expected ? Here again the far
mer’s salvation is in his own hands.
Mr. McClure, who is a recognized
political leader of many years’ stand
ing, takes the position that farmers
should stand together in political
movements and strengthen the farm
bloc in congress by electing more far
mers and business and professional
men who have the ability and sym
pathy to aid agriculture with reme
dial legislation; and fewer profes
sional politicians and lawyers.

New York, June 29.—The demo

balloting on presidential candidates.
There is every indicates .that the
big three—McAdoo, Smith and Un
derwood—wll be deadlocked after a
few ballots and that the party lead
ers will get together on a compro

Samuel M. Ralston, of Indiana, as
the man, but several others will be
considered, including Senater Carter
Glass, John W. Davis, James M. Cox r
and Senator Robinson, of Arkansas.
Delegates woke up late Sunday
in a somewhat remorseful mood. It

For hours Saturday night speak
ers were playing on the religious and
racial prejudices of the great crowd'
