Henderson Loses, Middleburg Wins,

ftulldoft Give Good Account
tof Themselves In Class

The fighting boys' basketball team
feofn Henderson high school went
Sown in defeat this morning at 9
o'clock before the strong Fayetteville
five in the Stare College Tourna
ment at Raleigh bv the score of 19-
The game was played In Frank
Thompson Gymnasium at the west Ra
high school, and was one of the open
log games of the class A tourna
team gave a good account of
ftself in its battle with the Fayette
ville representative, but the latter
was too strong for the boys from the
high school here.
The Fayetteville team lost to Ra
leigh by a small margin and Char
lotte nosed out Raleigh for the State
championship for class A schools of
fforth Carolina, which proves just '
how much competition the Henderson
representative had in its game this
&oach Rill Payne's starting line

E. Watkins, forward. Marion Rogers,
©enter, P. Rogers, right guard, and
1%. Chavasse. Left guard, with the
fallowing substitutes: F. Mills. Eason.
Clements. J. Mills, and Harper.
This game probably ends the sea
acfn for the local boys, who have had
a very good season. They finished
second in the county tourney, being
nosed out by Middleburg in the final
minutes of play after leading for the |
entire game. They 'battled Aycock j
last week and topped them 15-14 in
a wry fast game, and then started
training for the State College tourna
ment, from which they were elimfnat- ,
ed this morning by Fayetteville.
In the game played this morning
the first half ended with the score
ended 8-7 in favor of Fayetteville, and i
the second half saw Fayetteville WM- 1
en the margin between the two to
four points.
P. Rogers, captain of the Hender
son team, was the individual star of
the game, scoring 11 points for his !
team, with Sears, for Fayetteville,
scoring seven.

For Candidates In

Raleigh, March 4 Why not a plat
form for candidates for the nomina

didate for the nomination for gov
ernor can get any hope of considera

pointed out here. Why should it not
be just as essential for the candidates
for lieutenant governor to state their
positions uvn public matters as for
the candidates lor governor?

be kepi 4n a position where they can

that North Carolina Democrats us

governors so that no lieutenant gov |

helped to create the impression in

of McNeill, however .point out that
there are still thousands of Demo
crats in the State, in the Piedmont
and west as well as in the east, who
are far from satisfied with the three
present candidates, who would wel
come McNetH’s entry into the fray.
They also point out that McNeill Is
a whirlwind campaigner, has a dy
namic personality and can make a
stump speech that can get an audi
ence. especially of farmers and wage
earners, yelling with enthusiasm
within ten minutes. It is conceded
that none of the three present can
didates have ben able to do anything
like that so far.
McNeill is being more and mote
likened to Governor “Alfalfa Bill’*
Murray of Oklahoma. For Murray,
while posing as a backwoodsman and
as more or less of a "hick”, is in
reality one o fthe best educated,
erudite and profound thinkers in
American politics today. Who became
governor of Oklahoma because he
knew how to capitalize on his know
ledge of rural psychology and because
the farmers, cowhands and workers
in the oil fields knew he both spoke
and understood their language, ac
cording to those who really knoW
Murray. It is now conceded that Mur
ray is looming larger daily as a con
tender for the Democratic nomination
for president and that he is making a
large appeal to the people who earn
their living with their hands in all
parts of the country.
Similarly, McNeill has already made
his biggest appeal to the farmers fri
the eastern part of the State because
he knoWs them, knows thir problems,
knows the hard times they have had,
of the low prices they have received
for thehr cotton and tobacco and the
burden of their taxes. He speaks their
language and understands theirs and
they are for him, lock, stock and
barrel. It is freely conceded here that
McNeill, if he should run, will carry
almost every county in the south
eastern section of the State and pro
bably would get most of the present
Fountain following in the entire east.
McNeill is a real orator, while no
one who has ever heard Fountain
has ever maintained Fountain could
make a speech. McNeill takes a de
finite stand on questions and pro
blems, while Fountain avoids as much
as possible taking a Stand on any
thing, unless it be the Brookings re
port, whjch died even before the 193 i
general assembly extoirCd.
Opponents of McNeill whb do not
wish to see him become a candidate,
maintain that he could not hope to
get any votes outside the eastern
counties and that he would be a com
plete flop in the Piedmont and west
ern counties, largely because he Is nek
'known there. But his friends main
tain it would not take McNeill,long to
become well known in the Piedmont
and west and that his platform, which
would be similar to the Daniels plat
form for lower taxes on land, higher
taxes Oft the corporations and the
spending of less money by county
and State governmental agencies,
wotrid be receiped With just as much
enthusiasm by the farmers and work
ing people in these sections as In the
east. They admit he would be taking
a gamble, just as “Alfalfa Bill” Mur
ray took a gamble. They also main
tain he might win, just as Murray
won, though opposed by a multi-mil
lionaire oil man. - - .
It is also pointed out that McNeill
does not come up for re-election as
solicitor for another two years, that

attention and I am going to do every
thing within the power of this office
to see that the county accountants
or county auditors enforce this law
to the limit,” Mr. Johnson said. "The
law requires the county auditor, ac
countant or manager in each county
to audit the books of every court
in the county once each month and
require a settlement, be it the Su
perior Court, recorders court, town
ship courts or Justice of the Peace
courts. The nek school )aw also re
quires that the fines and forfeitures
collected In these courts be turned
into the school fund for maintenance
of the school plants in the county and
for capital outlay. If the money is
not turned In and accounted for as
the law requires, the counties will
have no money with which to main
tain their school plants.”
If the county officials do not com
ply with his request and enforce this
law and collect the money from the
fines and forfeitures as the law re
quires, he will ask the next general
assembly to amend the law and give
the Local Government Commission
power to enforce the law whenever
the local officials fail to enforce It
properly, Mr. Johnson said.
“I am satisfied the Local Govern
ment Commission can collect thous
ands of dollars that now never find
their way into the county school

give it authority to check up the
