Hoover Still Frowns On
Any Salary Cut Proposal
Adheres To Old Position Regarding Slashes In Offi

Two Carolinians In Its Board of Directors
Washington. Jan. 20.—(AP)—Pro
posals on Capitol Hill for rdeuction
of federal salaries were studied today
by President Hoover but he adhered
to hi* position that no general reduc
tion Is advisable. It was said au
thoritatively that the president is op
posed to any blanket salary reduction.
With his highest officers already at
work, the reconstruction corporation
faced but a few more hours of con
gressional consideration before it will
be brought into actuality by presiden
tial signature.
Two Carolina Democrats, Angus W.
McLean, former governor of North
Carolina and Bernard Baruch, who
left South Carolina to become one of
New York’s best known financiers to
day appeared as likely choices as di

a common share against $7.15 in
the previous year.
Ehringhaus also expects to open his

lieves Raleigh is the logical place
from which to direct his campaign.
He did not indicate who would be in
charge of the headquarters as cam

Mr. Eh ring ha us is not at all dis
couraged at the outlook and believes
that conditions are graually going to
improve, but that the strongest kind
of determination and much hard work
is going to be needed to puli through
the present crisis.
"While I am optimistic about the
future. I am not blind to the problems
ahead of us nor to the difficulties
that must be met and overcome be
fore pur recovery can be brought
about.” said Mr. Ehrlaghaus. “The
most serious aspect of the period

BRUMMITI RULES
ON POLL TAXES
Three-Fourth* of Poll Taxes
Must Be Sent To State
Treasurer
Raleigh. Jan. 20.—Three-fourths of
the poll taxes collected in every coun
try, of $1.50 out of each $2 poll tax
collected, must be sent to the State
Treasurer by each county treasurer
on the first and fifteenth of every
month, to become a part of the State
school fund. Attorney General Dennis
G. Brummitt has ruled in an opinion
dealing with the disposition by coun
ties of poll taxes, fines, forfeitures,
penalties and dog taxes.
Fines, forfeitures, penalties and dog
taxes should be held by the county
treasurer and utrned into the county
school fund rather than into the State
school fund, Mr, Brummitt ruled.
In dealing with the disposition of
poll tax collections, Mr. Brummitt
quoted from the State Constitution
which says that the poll tax “shall be
applied to purposes of education and
support of the poor, but in no one
year shall more than 25 per cent
thereoff be appropriated for the lat
ter purpose.”
