Ashvielle, N. C.—North Caroline
and Tennessee are rough places for
A1 Smith's race for the White House.
His chances in the two states are very
much "in the bag" as the sporting
writcis would say. It's anybody's
guess as to who will win the 24 elec
toral votes of this part of the once
Solid South.
John W. Davis beat Coolidge in
Tennessee four yeais ago by 158,404
to 130,882, and .in North Carolina had
284,272 to Cal's 191,763 votes. But
the dope for 1924 is out of date in
this topsy turvy campaign when two
new propaganda elements, the liquor
issue and religious prejudice, fill the
air with smoke and steam.
White corn liquor is available for
all who want it at one dollar a pint,
hut the Volstead act is a vote winner
in the South, and Al's wetness hurts
him in Dixie though il may help him
in New Jersey and New York. Still
more enmity is being mustered by
country preachers and others because
of his Roman Catholic affiliations,
though the average Southerner has
raiely met a Catholic.
Never since Reconstruction days
has th edcmociacy been so divided in
th enear South. Senator Simmons'
desertion of the party standard bear
er was a serious blow to Smith, for
Simmons, the darling of the water
power interests, also has a large fol
lowing in the rural sections which he
won a generation ago when he went
into leadership on an anti-negro plat
form. His recent denunciation of
Smith got the approval of the Win
ston Salem Journal and the Charlotte
Observer, leading dailies reflecting
the tobacco and textile interests in
the two largest towns in North Caro
True enough, some of the water
power politicians are supporting Al,
but that is just one of the many con
tradictions in a veiy contradictory
campaign. One such suppoiter is O.
Max Gardner, democratic candidate
for governor and a cotton mill presi
dentr and power company booster. He
Ls not aiding Smith moie than is nec
esesary to preserve his party regular
ity, and he will take a couple of days
from the campaign October 8 and 9
to speak at the Appalachian Power
Conference in Atlanta, ale g with
public utility her»!, uiul cth • south
tMn politicians.
Labor itself is divided in this con
fusing campaign. In Tennessee Ma
or George L. Berry. Smith's labor
attache, was able to get W. C. Bnth
right, secretary of the state fede
tion, as his Tennessee .labor commit
teeman. But in North Carolina the
federation heads refused to serve, and

owned labor paper which has the en

In making the biennial report to

pupils in 1928—an aveiage increase

Crop Report For September
Shows Estimates too High
The general crop prospect in Mon
tana declined slightly during August
with recessions in forecasts of wheat,
com, oats, flax, beans and sugar
beets accompanied by some improve
ment in the outlook for barley, tame
hay, potatoes and apples, according
to the September crop report issued
1 .V J G. Diamond, agricultural statis
tician for the Federal and State de
partemnts of agriculture.
Damage from such factors as frost,
hail, heat, drought and plant diseas
es all figured in the month's
ments but were very spotted and
cept in case of few crops took only
a light toll on yields. Taken as a
whole crops made a satisfactory pro
gress during the month with the
grain crops except com retaining an
advanced growth. Threshing of win
ter wheat was well under way and
harvesting of spring grains had
started when the month closed.
Corn, flax,
garden truck suffered
beans, potatoes and
varying de
grees of damage by frosts between
the 23rd and 26tl\ of August, when
minimum tempeiatures fell to freez
and * n central and northern

Jainfall except in west central and
southeastern Montana, but the sec

were dry and brought the summer's
hottest weather,

Soils at the end of

WHEAT: The wheat crop pros
pect shows a small loss for the month
when spring wheat declined from a
prospect of 61,796,000 bushels on Au
? u rt_ .te 60,256,000 bushels on Sept,
f- lbls forecast, however, stfll al
lows for an average amount of im
provement or deterioration so that
mal harvest may be larger or small
er than new estimated. Adding to
spring wheat the preliminary esti
mate °f winter wheat of 12150,000
bushels brings the state total for all
wheat on Sept. 1 to 72.406,000 bush
els compared with 73,735,000 bushels
forecasted a month ago and the 1927
crop of 80,208,000 bushels.
FI AX: Frost damage fco green
flax occurred at scattered points dur
ing the latter part of August in the
northern and eastern part of Mon
tana where the bulk of the crop is
grown. Damage, doubtless, would
have been more pronounced had the
cron not been so well advanced. The
September 1 estimate of the flax
crop based on a condition of 82^ of a
normal points to 2.236.000 bushels
