Gov. Roosevelt Still Leads In Presidential Poll
Only Eleven States Are In Hoover Rank Democratic Nominee Has Edge On 321 Electoral Votes Tabulation Shows Individual And Electoral College Votes The seventh revised weekly emula tion of the nation-wide Presidential poll of the Hearst morning, evening and Sunday newspapers 'till show^ Franklin D. Roosevelt far in the lead over President Hoover. This week vote stands as follows: Roosevelt _ 166,682 Hoover _-_ 118,766 It is again noticible that the num ber of men voting in the Hearst poll for Governor Roosevelt are more numerous than the combined men and women voting for President Hoover. Roosevelt’s vote Men _-_ 125,372 Women _ 41,310 Hoover vote Men _ 83,666 Women „_ 3 5,100 The above returns amount to a kout 1-12 5 th of the vote cast i^ the Presidential election of 1928. If Hearst poll is a reasonably correct index to public opinion today, the vote in November should be approxi mately as follows: Roosevelt _ 20,83 5,25 0 Hoover _ 14,854,45 0 This supposition is based on the fart that the Hearst poll of 1928, as Will as that of the Literary Digest, was fairly accurate. The returns of the past week, state by state, are given herewith: State Hoover Roosevelt Alabama _ 308 23 52 Arizona _ 358 777 Arkansas _ 406 1649 California _ 75 57 15 240 Colorado __— 1842 1785 Ccnnecticutt _ 3783 2270 Delaware _r__ 5 5 1 583 Florida _ . 551 1848 Georgia _ 267 2479 Idaho _ 731 943 Illinois _ 7231 1148 k ^.Indiana- _ 5679 6628 '"WlWa __3112 4224 Kansas _ 3140 2927 Kentucky v-,_ 293 8 5375 Louisiana _ 232 1236 Maine ___ 13 57 814 Maryland _ 902 2136 Massachusetts _ ,5398 2456 Michigan _ 5937 ’6646 Minnesota _ 3004 4143 Mississippi _ 106 1378 Missouri _ 4489 7473 Montana _,_ 1116 1293 Nebraska _ 1838 3330 Nevada _ 145 ’375 New Hampshire __ 1148 590 New Jersey _ 6052 5171 New Mexico _ 393 500 New York _ 14679 13926 North Carolina _ 1464 5740 North Dakota _ 685 1043 Ohio _*_ 7690 7372 Oklahoma _LL_ 1279 3021 Oregon _ 670 984 Pennsylvania __ 8714 9601 Rhode Island _ 779 5 59 South Carolina _ 47 1069 South Dakota _643 1075 Tennessee _ 1076 2175 Texas _ 988 (5959 Utah _ 881 13 54 Vermont ..._ 650 401 Virginia _ 744 2316 Washington _ 1977 3410 West Virginia _ 2300 35 02 Wisconsin _ 2708 5046 Wyoming -, 321 370 Total 118,766 166,682 The above tabulation indicates that Mr. Hoover is leading the poll in only 11 states, while Governor Roose / velt has the edge in the remaining 37 states. The Hoover states have a total electoral vote of 145; the Roose velt-states have 386 votes in the El ectoral College. However certain states appear to be close and the final tabulation may show some difference in the voting, even though the poll has not changed the electoral vote for several weeks. On the face of the present returns Governor Roosevelt seems to have an unquestioned lead in the following states: Stata Electoral vote Alabama ____ 11 Arizona __ 2 Arkansas _a_ 9 California ______ 22 Florida _ 7 Georgia _____ 12 Idaho _ 4 Illinois_:__29 Indiana _ 14 Iowa _ 11 Kentucky _____ 11 Louisiana _ 10 Maryland _ 8 Minnesota _ 11 Mississippi _,_ 9 Missouri _ 15 Nebraska _ 7 , Nevada - 3 Jones vs. Tunney?

WILLING TO RECIPROCATE Eddie Cantor, the comedian, tells this story. He was standing one ev ening at the door of a theatre where he was playing. All the seats had been sold. A little man and his wife were turned away, greatly disap pointed. “Here,” said Eddie, "I’ll let you have a couple of my seats.” He gave the little man two tickets. The little man was delighted. He gave Eddie his card. "Some day, I hope,” he said, “I maya be able to do something for you.” Eddie looked at the card. He was an undertaker.—Forbes Magazine.

Roosevelt and His wife, including his salary as governor, says the mag azine Fortune, is $42,S00. The magazine said the $42,500 is made up as follows: "Salary as governor of New York, $25,000. "Franklin Roosevelt’s income from semi-inactive law practice -and sale of articles; also Eleanor Roosevelt’s salary as teacher in Todhunter school and small profits from Val Kil Fur niture shop, but excluding her new salary from Bernarr MacFadden’-s forthcoming magazine (of which Mrs. Roosevelt Ijas been named edi tor), $5,000. "Income (at present market lev els) from investments of both Gov ernor and Mrs. Roosevelt, mostly in bonds, $12,500.” The publication recently survey ed President Hoover’s personal for tune and estimated It at $700,000 \with an annual income, earned and unearned, of more than $90,000.” The magazine says "the governor wore a suit of his father’s until last year, when young James is rumored to have hidden it,” and adds, in de claring the Roosevelt’s "must live as economically as possible,” that “Mrs. Roosevelt, for all her entertaining, buys no more than two evening dres ses a year." The governor is reported as having always believed that a uolitical office holder not be dependent upon his salary alone and is quoted on that subject as follows: "Either the individual should have enough money of his own safely in vested to take care of him when not holding office, or he should have business connections, a profession or a job to which he can return from time to time.” Federal Loan To Help Co-ops Blalock Urges Producers And Bankers To Support Cotton Holding Movement The loan of $50,000,000 by the Reconstruction Finance corporation to the cotton co-operatives and the cotton stabilization corporation to enable these organizations to hold cotton off the market was described by U. Benton Blalock, president of the American Cotton Co-operative association, as "a move in the right direction and one in which we are glad to co-operate in the interest of cotton producers.” Thirty-five of the 50 millions goes to the co-operatives to enable them to hold their 1930 cotton off the market until July 31, 1933, and the remaining $15,000,000 will be used by the stabilization corporation to keep its holdings off the market until March, 1933. Co-operation Heeded "This is a day when co-operation is sorely needed,” Mr. Blalock said, "and it is to be sincerely hoped that all cotton producers in the south and our southern bankers and our seed loan borrowers will co-operate to the fullest extent with the Reconstruc tion Finance corporation, the Farm board, and the co-operative organiza tions in maintaining a schedule of marketing that will not break prices to lower levels.” Statistical Facts Tunning to statistical facts, Mr. Blalock said: "We have a prospective American crop of 11,310,000 bales, or about 3,2 J 0,000 bales below the average production for the past five years. If only about 3,500,000 bales of this present crop could be held off the market for a while it would leave us only about 8,800,000 bales for im mediate sale, which is only about 100,000 bales more than we exported last year, to say nothing of domestic consumption. "If it is wise and proper to use $50,000,000 of Reconstruction Fin ance corporation money in this hold ing off the market’ movement, why is it not proper that another branch of the government, the U. S. depart ment of agriculture, cannot also join in this movement with money al ready provided? And then a step further: Why not we people of the south also put a little money in this sovthwide effort?” QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1— Which President had the most children? 2— What are the Roman numerals for 900, 3— Are women permitted to vote in every state of the Union?

The motto of North Carolina, "Esse Quam Vid eri” means "to be rather than to seem.” It is found in Cicero’s essay on Friendship (Chapter 26,) where he says, "Virtue enim ipsa non tarn multi prediti esse quam videri," meaning when translated literally, "for indeed not so many wish to be endowed with virtue as wish to seem to be.” State Capital In 1791 the Legislature appointed a committee of nine persons to lay off a city within ten miles of Isaac Hunter’s home. About Marcn 20, 1792, the committee met and bought from Joel Lane one thousand acres of land for one thousasnd three hund red and seventy-eight pounds. The members of the committee then laid off the bounds of the present city of Raleigh named after the great En glishman, Sir Walter Raleigh, who tried faithfully to found a colony on the coast of North Carolina. At the same time the city was laid off, a committee was appointed to have a State House built within the cit^. Work was begun in 1792 and the Legislature met in the finished house in 1794. This house was built of brick made within the limits of the city. This building was used until it was destroyed by fire on June 21, 1831. At once a bill was introduced to erect a new capital, but the bill fail ed due to’the fact that there was strong sentiment favorable to the re moval of the Capital to Fayetteville. At the session of 1832, the Assembly voted to rebuild on the old site and appropriate $50,000 for that purpose. This amount was no more than enough to lay the foundation. Each subsequent session of the Assembly until 1840, when the building was completed at a total cost of $531, 674.46 made additional appropria tions. The columns and entablature of the building are Grecian Doric, copied from the Temple of Minerva, com monly called the Parthenon, which was erected in Athen about 500 B. C. It is judged by building experts 36 a gem of architecture. The State Flower There is no official State flower of North Carolina. However, the ox eyed daisy has been accepted by com mon consent as our State flower. The State Song By an act of the General Assembly of 1927, the song known as "The Old North State” was legally adopt ed as the official song of the State of North Carolina. This song is given below: THE OLD NORTH STATE Carolina! Carolina! heaven’s blessings attend her, While we live we will cherish, pro tect and defend her, Tho’ the scorner may sneer at and witlings deframe her, Still 'our hearts swell with gladness whenever we name her, CHORUS: Hurrah! Hurrah! the Old North State forever, Hurrah! Hurrah the good Old North State. Tho’ she envies not others, their mer ited glory, Say whose name stands the foremost, in liberty’s story, Tho’ too true to herself e’er to crouch to oppression, Who can yield to just rule a more loyal submission. Then let all those who love us, love the land that we live in, As happy a region as on this side of heaven, Where plenty and peace, love and joy smile before us, Raise aloud, raise together the heart thrilling chorus. _ Other Significant Facts North Carolina claims the honor of being the birth place of three pre sidents of the United States: Andrew Jackson, James K. Jolk and Andrew Johnston, the latter having been born in the city of Raleigh. North Carolina has- three nick names, "Old North,” "Turpentine,” and "Tar Heel.” NORTH CAROLINA ROWAN COUNTY.
