Only Day to Qualify to
Vote Nov. 7 on Amend
ment Issue
Attention was called again to
day to the fact that Saturday,
Oetober 28, will be the only day
in which to register to qualify as
a voter on the 21st amendment,
the amendment to repeal the 18th
amendment, on which an election
will be held in this state on No
vember 7.
The fact that no absentee votes
will be cast in the election has
also been called to the attention
of the public.
In order to register in a new
precinct, a voter must first appear
before the registrar of his old pre
cinct and obtain a certificate of
removal and present it to the reg
istrar of the precinct in which he
expects to vote. This ruling does
not apply to voters who have re
moved from one county into an
Although absentee voting is le
gal in the regular general elec
tions of the state, it is specifically
set forth in the law providing for
the vote on the "general" election
on the 21st amendment that it
shall not be used on that occasion.
"No vote shall be cast or count
ed except such votes as are cast
by electors who represent them
selves in person and cast their
ballots at the polling place, in the
precinct of which they are elec
tors," reads the law governing the
November election. "Any person
who is physically unable to enter
I a voting booth, or to mark his
i ballot, may be assisted in enter
ing such booth and in marking his
I ballot, by the election official
I upon whom he may call for assist

,'as in other elections.

No Direct Conversations
on Arms With Germany,
Serraut's Policy
SIX members"of old
PARIS, Oct. (UP).—Al
bert Sarraut, successful today in
forming a cabinet to succeed
Edouard Daladier's defeated gov
ernment, immediately announced
that France would enter no sepa
rate disarmament, negotiations
with Germany.
Addressing a caucus of his rad
ical Socialist group at ihe cham
ber of deputies, Sarraut interp
reted as an invitation to direct
negotiations the radio speech of
Chancellor Adolf Hitler, October
14, after he withdrew from the
League of Nations.
"We want conversations with
several nations but no direct con
versations with Germany. I in
tend to follow out the foreign,
policies of previous governments
during which all roads led to the
League of Nations at Geneva,"
said Sarraut.
Sarraut's ministry differs little
from that of Daladier, in which
he was minister of marine. At
least six members of the old cab
inet will retain their posts, it was
The line-up for major posts was
said authoritatively to be:
Sarraut, premier and marine.
Joseph Paul-Boncour, foreign.
Daladier, war.
Georges Bonnet, finance.

These all are holdovers, as Dal

German Rally Day
Banned In N. Y.
NEW YORK, Oct. 26.—(UP)
Mayor John P. O'Brien last night
made a final decision to prohibit
a German day rally of the United
German societies in the 69th regi
ment armory Sunday.
The decision was revealed in a
letter to Dr. William Popcke, hon
orary president of the societies,
several hours after a hearing in
city hall yesterday at which the
mayor heard the proposed meet
ing denounced as a Nazi-sponsor
ed affair. More than 800 persons,

Peek Promises Farm Rebellion Area Money Will Flow
Into Area "By the Millions"
The agricultural adjustment ad
ministration last night extended
to corn its crop loan and price
pegging plan already operating as
to cotton.
It applies only to states having
farm warehouse acts, however. I
Loans will be made on ware
housed corn on the basis of 50
cents a bushel for No. 2 Decem
ber corn at Chicago. Only farm
ers who sign agreements to co
operate in the corn-hog reduction
program will be eligible for loans.
Shortly after announcement of
this move to aid the farmers of j
l the regions where agricultural re-!
j bullion is most, widespread. Agri
cultural Administrator Georpe N.,
J'eek promised farmers in an ad-1
dress that the administration pro
gram would "bring money to the
farm country, not in dribbles but
in millions."
The goal is permanently higher
farm incomes, he said, and added:
"This is the kind of a new deal
which, after many lean years, the
, President and his administration
' are fighting to assure the farm
er<" . I
) He did not mention directly the
farm strike, but it was evident
that his address was directed at
the restless Middle West and that
it was an effort to convince the ,
strikers that patience and co-op
eration promised them more than
violent dissent. He outlined the i
corn crop loan program in detail.
Five states now have ware
housing acts making their farm
ers eligible for loans: Iowa, Illi
nois. Minnesota, South Dakota
and Kansas.
The corn loan plan was drawn
up at a conference yesterday be
tween President Roosevelt and
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace.
In effect, the plan pegs the
price at 50 cents a bushel because
if the quotation falls below this
price the farmer has his money
and can let the government keep
the corn as collateral. In addi
tion, no corn would be shipped to
market to sell for a price beiow
50 cents as long as the farmer
could warehouse it instead and
borrow 50 cents a bushel. No. 2
December corn closed on the >
Chicago Board of Trade yester
day at 47% cents.
Details of administering the
plan have not been worked out,
but it was expected the loans
would be handled by the commod- j
ity credit corporation, set up
originally for cotton, but empow- j

Appointment of Local Di
rector Held in
Miss Pearl Weaver, state-federal
relief director for Henderson and
other Western North Carolina
counties, has left Hendersonville
for a few days after a series of
conferences here with the board
of county commissioners with re
spect to future activities of the
relief office in this county.
Work of the office has been
practically at a stand-still for the
last week, due in part to shortage
of federal funds and partly to a
controversy between Miss Weaver
and the board of county commis
sioners over the management of
the office. The office in the court
house was closed last week after
the county board had indicated
that it could well be used for oth
er purposes and Miss Weaver had
ordered the practical suspension
of relief activities as a conse
quence. Relief was expressed here
that a local person could best di
rect relief work, and the confer
ences this week had to do directly
with the selection of a local direc
tor. While the conferences were
closed to the public, it is under
stood that W. M. Sherard, former
mayor of Hendersonville, was rec
ommended for the post. No ap
pointment was made, however,
and Miss Weaver left for the time
Geo. W. Justice, county com
missioner, directed the relief work
until a few weeks ago. when Fran
cis S. Wilder was sent here by the
state relief administration office.
When, and if a local director is
appointed, it is understood that
Mr. Wilder will be retained by
the state-federal relief adminis
tration as a special "case worker"
in two or three counties in this
section. Belief was expressed to
day that the office will be re
opened next week.

Further Advances in Re

Heels of Every Com

United Press Staff Correspondent
Copyright, 1933, by U. P.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2fi. (UP).
In action that shatters precedents
almost daily, President Roosevelt
is turning into tangible form the
powers handed over to him whole
sale after March 4.
He has moved more aggressive
ly than ever in thp last few days
as the popularity of his program
was threatened by incipient re
bellion in the farm belt.
He has applied the new deal
in new form the prescription of
Jefferson or somebody, who said
that the cure for democracy's ills
was more democracy. If there is
complaint against the recovery
Whether President Roosevelt
should "be called a dictator or
something less jarring to Ameri
can ears is a purely academic
question. What has happened is
that in his inaugural address, Mr.
Roosevelt marched up to the
Rubicon and announced he ex
pected to cross it; then he dangl
ed his toes in the water for a
time, and now with the bold,
calm, confident smile which has
marked this precedent smashing
president, he is wading in.
Headlines yesterday reporting
current developments in Mr.
Roosevelt's revolution suggest
the high spots of- the advance.
There is no turning back. Even
the original brain trust now is el
bowed aside for" what is being
called in Washington the "new
professors." Most prominent of
these is Prof. George F. Warren
of Cornell, whose money plan is
understood to have formed the
basis for Mr. Roosevelt's new
gold policy. .
On price control, even rrol.
Rex Tugwell, regarded as the
most brilliant and advanced on
the regular brain trust group,
favors caution. Yet a majority
of industrial codes so far approv
ed involve price control, and
more and more the government
is taking over agicultural price
This story in Washington is
too vast to be understood or ade
quately told hot off the wires.
History will have a hard enough(
time telling it. All that can be(
done now is to try to give the
"feel" of it, to suggest by a few
rough strokes, the general out
lines and the direction.
Fascism has had it easy com
pared to the new deal. Mussolini
worked in a small nation accus
tomed to a strong hand at the
top. Hitler has the emotions of
a defeat-wracked nation behind
him. Mr. Roosevelt is dealing
with a spoiled people, a nation
spoiled by the unreal prosperity
of the last decade, a nation still
wedded to the individual freedom
of the frontier.
There are many indications
that, except in the circle around
Mr. Roosevelt, the real meaning
of the new deal has not yet been
grasped. Actions of Mr. Roose
velt since the first serious chal
lenge appeared last week are suf
ficient to convince Washington
that he has no thought of turn
ing back. He told the nation

Disastrous to Flowers;
Overcoats in Evidence;
Furnaces Started
The heaviest frost of the season
visited Hendersonville and the
county last night, bringing disas

vegetation and causing sundry
citizens to start furnace fires this
morning and resurrect overcoats
from closets.
Preceded by several lighter
frosts, the one last night put the
"finishing touches" to every ten

others said. All field and vegeta
