New State Commander
Will Take Place At Sal

Bryce P. Beard, of Salisbury, new
ly elected state commander of the
American Legion, who was ’unani

at Asheville the first of the week af
ter Fred Myrick of Greensboro with
drew and asked that Mr. Beard’s elec
tion be made unanimous, will be in
stalled at exercises at Salisbury Octo
ber 20, he said last night.
Mr. Beard went from Asheville to
Blowing Rock, and it was from the
mountain resort that he announced
the date of his scheduled installation.
It will follow the national convention
of the American Legion at Portland,
Oregon, which will be held September
The installation of the new state
commander, who succeeds Henry C.
Bourne, of Tarboro, will be one of
the most important Legion ceremonies
of the fall months. It will bring to
gether many Legion leaders of the
state, including state officers, district
commanders, post officers, and other
interested members. In all probability
the various drum and bugle corps will
stage a parade, and other activities
may be scheduled.
Before the installation exercises are
held, the state adjutant, J. M. Cald
well, who has served in that capacity
for the last several years, will come to
Salisbury, and he and Mr. Beard will
complete detailed plans for the cere
mony, said Mr. Beard.
Mr.-Beard announced before the
convention that in event of his elec
tion he would re-appoint Mr. Cald
well to the post of adjutant. The ad
jutant customarily makes his home
in the home city of the state com
mander and the next Legion year he
will'spend at Salisbury. Two years ago
he lived at Mooresville during the ad
ministration of Con Q Johnston as
state commander, and last year he has

Raleigh—E. B. Jeffress, chairman
of the state*.Highway commission, said
that it was probably the first road
letting in North Carolina as a result
of the two billion dollar federal re
lief act would be held August 10.
Mr. Jeffress said he was assured at
conferences in Washington with the
Federal bureau of roads that as little
delay as possible will be experienced by
the states in getting their allotments
under the act. He said he expected a
certification that North Carolina get
about $5,700,000 to be made by Mon
"I am very well satisfied with the
situation as far as the road appropria
tion is concerned,” Mr. Jeffress said.
"The fcighway commission met Tues
day and it is altogether possible that
they approved a few projects for ear
"The board also will set a minimum
for skill and unskilled labor, the wages
to be included in the call for bids ac
cording to provisions of the relief
He estimated that $2 daily would
be a fair minimum wage in view of
the fact that laborers will be allowed
to work only 30 hours per week.
The federal bureau has adopted a
more liberal attitude about road
types, the chairman said, and will now
allow surface treatment on either new
or old federal aid projects.
"This will enable us to put the
treatment on lots of roads with fed
eral aid funds, something we haven’t
been able to do in the .past*” he said.

It was the first time they had
learned of the police radio system,
and they complained to the jailor
whenever the radib was turned on.
