One State Radio
Station Will Be
In This Section
As a result of experiments car
ried on over a period of months
State officials have decided to builc
five police radio stations and locat<
them near Williamston, Elizabeth
town, Raleigh, Salisbury and Ashe
ville, says the Raleigh News anc
Observer.
Although sepcification for th«
stations had not been completed
the compilation of data collectec
by radio experts is completi
enough to make certain that fiv<
stations will suffice and that theii
best location to cover the State will
be in the vicinity of the five places
named.
Director of Purchase A. S. Brow
ed said that bids for the construc
tion of the five transmitters will be
advertised for January 13 and
opened January 30. Captain
Charles Former, of the state high
way patrol, estimated that it would
require two months from the time
the contracts are awarded to put
the stations in order.
In addititon to the five stations,
the State will ask for bids on about
200 receiving sets. The law re
quires that one be put in the office
of each of the 100 sheriffs of the
State and each district office, cat
and motorcycle of the patrol will
have them.
The last Legislature, which en
acted the police radio law, estimat
ed that the cost of the radio equip
ment in the State would be about
$65,000, but Mr. Brower believgs
it will exceed that amount.
The five stations located as
planned will give almost complete
coverage of the State both day and
night, although there will be some
"dead spots” especially in the
mountan sections. The terrain in
the far west, however, is such that
even with the construction of six
stations 100 per cent coverage
probably could not be achieved for
both stationary and portable re
ceivers.
To begin with there will be no
wire connection between the five
broadcasting stations but it is
planned to have each broadcasting
station sufficiently equipped with
receiving sets that can catch the
broadcasts from other stations and
relay any information of import
ance to their sections.
It has been suggested also, that
the several stations be connected by
teletype and in time arrangements
may be made to connect them all
by wire so that when the occasion
demands one broadcast would be
sent out from each of the five sta
tions.
ine State ponce raoio system was
one of the three major acts to pro
mote highway safety and the en
forcement of highway laws passed
by the last Legislature. The patrol
was more than doubled in size, the
State automobile driver’s law was
passed and the radio system creat
ed.
The radio, however, is intended
to do more than provide better en
forcement of the highway laws.
The law specifically stated that
each sheriff’s office be equipped
with a receiving set and it was as
sumed that police stations also
would take advantage of the oppor
tuniey.
For instance, in the case of a
hold-up, the formation of a mob
or the commission of some crime
and the escape of the criminals, po
lice could be called to the scene of
the crime from all directions, or
stationed at points where the es
caping criminals might be expect
ed to pass.

Large Wildlife Refuge
Is Planned For Bladen
Raleigh—A wild refuge cover
ing some 12,000 of the approxi
mately 22,000 acre submarginal
purchase area around Jones and
Salters lakes in Bladen county is
one of the plans for the develop
ment of the unit by the resettle
ment administration, J. D. Chalk,
State game and inland fisheries
commissioner, said.
"The proposed refuge,” said
Chalk, "is located in a territory
well adapted to upland birds and
deer and will be of great benefit
to the wildlife in that area and a
valuable addition to our chain of
refuges.”
Chalk visited the area and recom
mended a territory for the wild
life refuge. It is planned, he said,
to enclose the refuge in a wire
fence and to improve the territory
as a breeding place and sanctuary
for game along the lines previously
followed by the State Department
of Conservation and Development
on land set aside for a similar pur
pose.
Reynolds’ Will In
Baltimore Courts
The State of North Carolina has
filed in the Circuit Court of Balti
more City a petition to intervene in
the sui_t which the Safe Deposit and
Trust company had brought against
the Smith Reynolds heirs—a friend
ly action by which the trust com
pany hopes to have the courts de
cide its responsibility in the matter.
North Carolina is interested to
the extent of $2,000,000 inherit
ance tax, which it will get 'if the
compromise settlement of the Rey
nolds will case is approved in Balti
more, as it was in the courts of
this state.
The North Carolina Supreme
court last fall gave its approval to
the proposed distribution of young
Reynolds’ $30,000,000 estate. How
ever, the money is in Maryland
and the trust company is not wil
ling to dispose of so large a sum
without the approval of its own
courts.

doubt of the attitude of the large,:
majority of the manufacturers in i
other groups. 1
The fact that Institute records .
on conformance since the NRA
code was abolished showed that 97 ,
per cent of the industry has con- :
tinued to operate on code stand- 1
ards is considered an indication that
the manufacturers realize the value,
not only to employes and to the
general public, but also to them
selves of the continuation of these
policies, leaders said.
Several outstanding manufactur
ers in Charlotte recalled and ex
pressed agreement with the state
ment made by Dr. Claudius T.
Murchison, president of the Cot
ton-Textile Institute, Inc., that ac
ceptance of the pledge will be def-1
inite assurance to the general pub
lic and to the workers that the
preponderant majority of the in
dustry is unwilling to return and
is determined not to return to
"those conditions which resulted in
unstable markets, heavy business
! losses, and periodic unemployment
■ for workers.” The belief that the
pledge will meet with enthusiastic
approval by the large majority of
the manufacturers was stressed.

Cannon Gives
Appeal Notice
Notice of appeal to the state su
preme court from a Mecklenburg
superior court jury’s verdict giv
ing Frank Brandon Smith, Jr.,
damages of $12,600, in his $2$0,
000 suit against his former father
inlaw, Joseph F. Cannon, wealthy
industrialist and capitalist of Con
cord, was given Plummer Stew
art, attorney for Cannon, in a hear
ing before Judge G. V. Cowper,
of superior court here today.
It had been expected that de
fense attorneys would move for
setting aside the verdict and for
a new trial, so the failure to do
this was a surprise in courtroom
circles. Judge Cowper said, Fol
lowing the announcement of inten
tion to appeal, that he was glad
such a course had been taken instead
or a motion tor new trial, as, he
said, he thought a possible three
hours of argument on the question
of setting aside the verdict would
not have changed matters.
The procedure was simple and
swift when attorneys met in the
courtroom this morning before
Judge Cowper. Paul Whitlock who
with Frank McNinch, Jr., has
conducted the case for young
Smith asked the Judge to sign the
judgement of $12,600 awarded by
the jury Saturday morning. Mr.
Stewart then gave notice of appeal
ind asked the judge to set the limits
for filing and for answering the
ippeal. Judge Cowper fixed 40
days as the time for filling the
notice of appeal and 30 days as the
time for the plaintiff to answer,
rhis would place tlje matter before
the state supreme court for its
;pring docket with a session of the
tourt scheduled to start April 14.
