IS VERY QUIET
Atlanta, Ga., June 30.—With the
I democratic convention in New York
attracting 95 per cent of attention of
Georgia voters, and with the opening
of the state legislature in Atlanta
claiming at least another 4 per cent,
there was barely a trace of interest
shown during the past week in the
various races which are officially un
der way in the state, to end with the
primary in September.
United States Senator William J.
Harris, seeking reelection, and ex-
Governor Thomas W. Hardwick, his
ooponent, did not engage in any ac
tive campaigning during the week. It
is doubtful if Senator Harris wiL be
able to find time for many speech is
in the state this summer, but he spen,
all of year touring the state, v ; -
itirg each county at least once, most
ol them twice, and many three or
Mr. Hardwick has announced that
he will open a vigorous campaign jn
July 4, when he will speak at Watso i
Springs in Greene county.
Governor’s Race Quiet. *
in the governorship race the two
candidates have had their time en
tirely occupied by the state legisla
ture. Governor Clifford Walker,
seeking re-election, has as yet made
no formal announcement regarding
his platform, though his annual mes
sage to the legislature, delivered last
Thursday, was generally regarded as
embodying the main issues on which
he is appealing to voters. In his mes
sage he stressed the need of economy
and efficient handling of state fi
nances and advocated biennial sessions
of the legislature.
Herschel H. Elders, of Tattnall
county, also a candidate for the guber
natorial seat, is a member of the
legislature and is entirely occupied
with his duties in that body.
Races for minor state house places
have been correspondingly quiescent.
Albert J. Woodruff and O. R. Bennett,
who are seeking to depose J. D. Price
and John T. Boifieullet, respectively,
on the public service commission, are
members of the general assembly.
Mr. Woodruff, however, is in New
York as a member of the Georgia
delegation to the democratic national
Many Are Opposed.
Other state officials who face op
position in their races for reelection
include State Superintendent of
Schools N. H. Ballard, who is opposed
by Fort E. Land, of Macon; J. J.
Brown, commissioner of agriculture,
opposed by George F. Hunnicutt, and
C. E. McGregor, pension commission
er, opposed by John Y. Clark.
Many members of the general as
sembly are candidates either for re
election or for new offices.
L. J. Steele, of DeKalb, is running
for congress from the fifth district
against William D. Upshaw, the pres
ent incumbent. Frank Holden, of
Clarke, is a candidate for congress
from the eighth district, and Ben J.
Fowler, of Bibb, from the sixth.
Also Col. S. G. Brown, of Lawrence

the ninth district against Congress
man Thomas M. Bell, of Gainesville.
JULY THE FOURTH.
The American nation is 148 years
old today. Its history spans so mo
mentous an era that there scarcely re
mains a material thing to remind to
day of yesterday, and none dares
prophesy that tomorrow will not out
do and forget both.
The changing externals under which
we live do not subtract from the ver
ity of life. Man, of all things created
and invented, changes the least. He
is the ever-living Adam. His quest is
unaltered. At bottom the simplest
terms express him and his destiny.
He seeks that which is summed up as
good; he flees from that which to him
is evil. Applied to living he phrases
his goal in terms of society, whose
operating mechanism is government.
What was born on July 4, 1776,
was a new effort toward an old ob
jective. Alone it remains unchanged
by the moving impulses of externals,
even as the heart of man is the same
now as in all time.
Life, liberty and the pursuit of hap
piness. Sometimes incapable of ar
ticulating his aspirations, these things
nevertheless have been the mainspring
of man’s noblest works. Simplicity
marks those objectives and yet all his
tory comprises the struggle to main
tain the onward march against forces
eager to thwart it. So men have died,
but the simple truth has never died.
Indestructible so long as humanity
endures it came to lasting repose in
the bosom of a people pledged to
carry it far and high along the road
Whosoever in the world today
thinks of liberty, thinks of this happy
land. Its institutions have become the
criterion of progress. Civilization
looks to it for leadership. Of these
things, so precious to the life of the
world, so passionately sought through
so many bitter centuries of time, every
American is inheritor, guardian and
LAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA, THURSDAY, JULY 3, 1924.
TWO SIZES OF
One of the most significant facts
in the announcement of Buick this
week of its Standard Six models is
that Buick will remain in the class
of builders of moderate price cars.
Speculation was rife previous to this
announcement as to the likelihood
of Buick’s bringing out a car that
would be considerably higher in
history carefully, however, were
more or less prepared for the launch
ing of this new car which is taken to
be good evidence Buick will not re
tre from this division of the six cy
linder field it has dominated for so
many years. One reason, perhaps,
why this rumor persisted so strongly
was because Buick was first among
price than any it had produced be
fore—a car that might be a compet
itor in what is known as the exclu
sive “fine car” field.
Those who have followed Buick’s
the large volume producers to equip
its cars with four wheel brakes as it
did a year ago and likewise to in
troduce many other improvements of
chassis and lines —all of which gave
its cars greater value.
A care ful inspection of the Stan,
dard Six models shows even the lay
man that they are Buick through
and through—with the same type of
engine, of clutch and r ar axle that
have contributed so much to Buick’s
record of performance for so many
And what is true of the valve-in
head engine principle is likewise true
of Buick’s multiple disc clutch, its
rear axle with its distinctive third
member, its spring construction and
the newly designed steering gear.
“Keep the good” has always been
one of Buick’s mottoes and that is
one of the reasons Buick cars al
ways have been good cars.
That Buick is not blind to the en
thusiastic reception its large six cy
linder cars have received during the
past year may be seen from thejiine
of Master Six models which likewise
are on display this week for the
time. Comment seems to be that
these cars will prove the stiffest
kind of competition for all manu
facturers in the upper portion of the
six cylinder field.

The passing of the noted bird re
calls the memorable event at Green

“Black Diamond” sprinted a half

“Black Diamond” was killed Mon
day in a fight with six other birds
at the farm of Tom J. Cockburn,

gle, that the heavy fence about the
inclosure in which the ostriches were
confined, was splintered in several

quelling the riot and peace was re
stored only after “Black Diamond”
lay mortally wounded.

from California to New England
during a period of fifteen years and

PLANTER MUST LEAVE
HIS WEEVIL PARTNER
Atlanta, Ga., June 30.—The season
of the year is approaching when the
cotton planter will be forced to decide
whether he will continue his partner
ship with the boll weevil and divide
his crop, or whether he will take steps
to dissolve the partnership, it was
pointed out here today by J. J. Brown,
Georgia commissioner of agriculture.
In the past, Commissioner Brown
says, the cotton planter has been in i
partnership with the boll weevil and
has divided with him to the extent of
about $200,000,000. This, as he points
out, is an unnecessary division, but
the boll weevil will continue to collect
his share unless the cotton planter
acts. The boll weevil, he says, will
not dissolve the partnership, for he
has been well satisfied to live on the
fat of the land at the expense of the
“If the partnership is to be dis
solved the cotton planter must do it,”
said the commissioner. “Good weath
er during the cotton season will help
him greatly in getting away from the
boll weevil, if he will help himself.
Proper weather conditions have al
ways reduced the damage caused by
the pest, and if there is added to this
factor, a concerted effort to control
the weevil, the cotton planter can
save that part of the crop, which has
formerly gone to the weevil.
“Poisoning has been proved to be a
profitable means of controlling the
weevil, and if the cotton planter will
just poison his erstwhile partner, he
will save a large part of his crop this
Eliminate Grade Crossings.
In connection with tRe effort now
being made to require the railroads to
install automatic train control ma
chinery, the railroads, it was stated
by executives, have prepared statistics
to show that the number of persons
whose lives might have been saved
durng the last five years by the use
of automatic train control on all the
railroads of the country, is only about
one-eighteenth of the number of per
sons whose lives were lost in grade
The railroads are making the argu
ment that if they are to be required
---<> spend a htrgtr sum of money, suf
ficient to install automatic control, it
would be far better to spend this
money in tjie elimination of grade
crossings. Business men say that it
is a point well made, and one worthy
of consideration in the efforts to con
serve human lifd.
There is no doubt about the terrible
menace of the grade crossings. The
railroads’ figures show that in the
five years from 1919 to 1923 there had
been 422 major train accidents, which
were responsible for more than half
the deaths and injuries. Of these,
only 243 deaths would have been pre
vented by automatic train control.
On the other hand, in the same five
years 9,242 persons were killed and
26,222 persons were injured, at grade
crossings. Railroad travel is fairly
safe. For every passenger killed, it is
shown, 13,200,000 were carried safe
ly, and by the laws of average, a
passenger could travel—on the rail
roads—l9,ooo times around the world
at the equator before a fatal accident
would overtake him.
Negro Migration Checked.
The migration of negroes from
southern states to northern industrial
centers appears to have been checked,
it was pointed out by railroad offi
cials. Little is heard now of negroes
leaving agricultural districts or towns
and cities in the south for the north.
On the other hand, it was stated,
that many of the negroes who left
southern homes to try their fortunes
in the northern cities have managed
to get back into the south and that
they are well content to stay here.
The negroes have been disillusioned.
These who went north and found the
promises held out for higher wages,
better living conditions and greater
social equality were merely the high
ly colored fiction of the labor agent.
In many instances negroes who
went north found wages no better
than they had been receiving in the
south and in every instance they
found living expenses much higher, so
much higher in fact that the small in
crease in pay did not help in any way.
she promise of better ljving condi
tions was even more false than that
of high wages, for many of the
negroes in the northern cities lived
huddled in tenements that were
crowded with other negroes, unsani
tary, without proper light or suffi
cient air and no room for children to
•play. The social equality promise,
of course, was wholly false.
This summer, railroad men state,
there has been little said of negroes
moving to northern centers. In pre
vious summers great numbers were
reported from various southern states
fas leaving for northern cities and the
exodus became so great in some states
that there was fear of an acute short
age of common labor on farms and in
the manufacturing plants employing
(negroes. There is no hint of such a
uhortage now, it was stated.

BILL TO GIVE GOV
Atlanta, Ga.—The house commit
tee on constitutional amendments
voted 13 to 5 Tuesday afternoon to
report favorably the measure chang
ing the time of the regular session
of the legislature from June to the
first Wednesday in January.
The bill would have the effect, if
it became law, not only of changing
the time of year for the legislature,
but of putting the governor and oth
er statehouse officials elected in the
fall primaries into office in January
instead of compelling them to wait
until June, as at present. This is
by reason of the fact that : the con

than the first Saturday after: the

The same committte also favored
a senate resolution to grant to all
counties in the state with 25,000 or
more population, the right to place
their county officers on the salary
system instead of the fee system.
This would require a constitutional
amendment, and later a local bill for
each county which elected to take
advantage of the opportunity The
resolution has already passed the
Representative Linder spoke on
behalf of the bill to have the legis
lature convene in January, stating
that it would be better for the farm

newly elected state oficials take of

PUT BUSINESS LIFE
IN THE SMALL TOWN
New York, June 30.—Approximate
ly 100 small town advertising clubs
affiliated with the Associated Adver
tising Clubs of the World are success
fully operating the Neosho co-opera
tive sales plan in the United States,
according to an announcement made
here today by Gurney R. Lowe, direc
tor of small city club extension of the
A. A. C. of W.
This means, according to Mr. Lowe,
that thousands of merchants and far
mers in these small towns have suc
cessfully pooled their advertising and
selling efforts through world-wide or
ganized advertising clubs to create
new business, to stop the waste of
money through worthless “advertis
ing” schemes, to eliminate the fly-by
night, autionper and to keep their
money in their own town instead Of
letting it go to the larger stores in
The Neosho plan is a co-operative
system that puts business life in dead
towns and stimulates and creates
larger merchandising sales in live
While the Neosho plan, commonly
known as the golden rule sales plan,
brings the farmer, the citizen and the
small town merchant together on the
golden rule basis, its biggest asset it
its cash drawer value to the mer
chant, farmer and citizen.
Three thing enter the success of
this co-operative sales plan. They
1. A monthly co-operative sale in
which only real bargains are offered.
Not more than two bargains are list
ed by any one merchant. Each mer
chant has a sufficiently large and
diversified amount of merchandise on
hand to supply ordinary demands.
2. An equal opportunity for the
farmer to sell surplus live stock, used
farm or household implements or
anything which he might care to sell.
An auction sale is held monthly to
give the farmer an opportunity to sell
3. The establishment in the com
munity of mutual interest through
bringing people together so that they
may find out about and discuss mu
Plan Highly Indorsed.
In addition to being sponsored by
the Associated Advertising Clubs of
the World, the Neosho sales plan for
small towns has been endorsed by the
United States chamber of commerce,
Mississippi development board, Cor
nell University, University of Florida,
West Virginia University, and the fol
lowing railroads: New York Central
Lines, Central of Georgia Railway.
Seaboard Air Line railway, Baltimore
and Ohio railway, Kansas City South

Minneapolis & St. Louis railway,
Lackawanna railroad, Erie railroad,,

Ste. Marie railway, Michigan Central,
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis 4:
“The Neosho sales plan is a builder
of confidence, good will and business,”
says Mr. Lowe. “The Neosho sales
plan is not new and it is not an ex
periment. It was carefully thought
out in Neosho, Mo., in 1913, by a
group of far sighted business men
who saw the value of team work in
small town development. Tht-ir plan
was to develop not only their own
business, but the business of the com
munity as a whole.
“After the plan was started in Neo
sho the town’s trading territory was
extended from a few short miles to
an area of approximately thirty or
forty miles. The plan built up closer
relationship and understanding be
tween the merchants in the town and
the farmers in the outlying districts.
Success of the plan was built on good
merchandise, truthful advertising,
square dealing and service.
"What was started in Neosho thir
teen years ago has spread to nearly
100 other small towns in the United
States and in the majority of cases
the operation of these Neosho clubs
has built business confidence and has
increased .‘■ales for the individual
owners and built up confidence in the
“This plan is a concrete, workable
idea for the extension of the retail
trade territory, for building up a
better understanding between town
and country, all through the medium
of making it worth while from the
standpoint of financial gain—both for
farmer and business man.
“From the headquarters of the As
sociated Advertising Clubs of the
World, 383 Madison Avenue, New
York City, an educational bulletin is
issued twice a month to all small
town advertising clubs, and a monthly
publication also is issued to keep the
enthusiasm of the small town clubs to
the boiling point.

the newspapers and every mercant
