BRINKLEY RESIGNS
POST AS ATTORNEY
Lexington. Feh. B.—(AP)-W.
F. Brankley, Davidson county at
torney, resigned here today fol
lowing the fatal shooting early
Friday of Sheriff Leonard.
Governor has general supervision
over the State’s finances and over the
Purchasing Divisio nand Division or
Personnel. His term as speaker of the
house and several previous terms in
the general assembly has given Gra
ham a still deeper insight into the
operation of the State government.
Graham also served as Executive
Counsel to Governor Gardner for sev
eral months, so that he also got some
first hand information on the hand
ling of that office.
As a result of the experience which
Graham has had both in the legis
lature and ns a member of the Ad
visory Budget Commission, his friends
feel that he Is well fitted for the
duties of lieutenant Governor and
that his nomination and election to
that position would enable him to
render a real service to the State
during the 1933 general assembly.
The only other avowed candidate
for the nomination for Lieutenant
Governor is D. F. 'Giles of Marion,
who has already announced his can
didacy. There has been some lalk to
the effect that Mrs. E. L. McKee of.
Sylva may be a candidate for the
office, but few here take this talk
seriously and believe that she will ac
tually become a candidate.

North Carolina stands at the bottom
In funds allotted for agricultural re
search among all the States studied
In 1830 by the office of education of
the United States Department of the
Interior. The amount is less now.
Dr. R. Y. Winters, director of the
North Carolina Experiment Station,
says for example that when a Vir
ginia citizen pays SIOO in taxes to
that State, he contributed 28 cents for
the advancement of agricultural re
search; when the North Carolina cit

monwealth, he pays only six-tenths, of
a cent for the advancement of agri

UT J. C. B ASKER VIOL.
Raleigh, Feb. 8. —The resentment
that has been growing at State Col
lege against Governor O. Max Gard
ner ever since the 1931 general as
sembly passed the bill to consolidate
State College with the University of
North Carolina and then decide to
reduce the pay of the professors and
instructor 10 per cent, has finally
boiled over Into the editorial columns
of The Technician, the weekly col
lege newspaper published by the stu
dents. It has been known for some
time that Governor Gardner has been
intensely unpopular among the fa
culty members at State, but this is
the first tangible indication of the
degree to which this unpopularity has
been passed on to the students.
This editorial, entitled “Governor’s
Wild Oat” and smacking of juvenile
journalism, attacks Governor Gard
ner because of his parole of John M.
Brewer, Wake Forest banker and
says that “Instead of discouraging
mis appropriation of public funds.
Governor Gardner stoops to aid a
criminal and in so doing stamps him
self as An unworthy alumnus, en
