Forces, who were in the minority, to
carry their minority representation
into tin- State convention. Chairman
Morehead Is powerless. It is claimed,
to apply such a ruling to the State's

that It became effective in Mecklen?

Thus fur only about fifteen of the
ninety-eight counties in North Caro?

"The North Carolina Republican
I plan of organization gives to tSie
iminority a prorate.) representation on
I tho first ballot from the precinct nxl

This statement la Interpreted by
soinu to mean that tho minority will
have a representation in tho national

in the national convention. fibers
I claim that Chairman Morchcad's ruling

arrest, an attempt to get ball for him
having failed. The court has not as
yet Iniposid sentence, having deferred
this pending evidence as to the san?
ity of the young man.
Jorgensen was murdered on a lonely
country road. Scott, who lived alone
and was managing his father's planta?
tion near tho scene of I hi murder, was
arrested on circumstantial evidence.
Tracks near tho scone of tho murder
led to tho home of Scott. The pecu?

Scott's shoe fitted this descrlptljn.
Other circumstances caused his arrest
