Shanghai. March 21 <AP) New
parley* for peace and r.ew trenches

Japanese and Chinese negotiators
continued the peace parleys under

while nut along the Japanese first

trenches, barbed wire barricades and

Those actually connected with the
negotiations .the Chinese and Japa

widely speculative reports on the out

troops.
Officials declined to reveal the plan
suggested for the armistice, but they
were reported to have centered on
three points:
1. Chinese troops to remain In their
present positions about 30 miles west
of Shanghai.
-
th<> international settlement.
3 A neutral commission to super
use the Japanese withdrawal and to
uke over the administration of the

Raleigh. March 21. - State govern
mental officials and political circles
generally are carefully watching the
fight going on in Washington ovei the
bill now holding the spotlight in Con
gress that proposes to levy a nation
wide tax in the form of 2 -4 per cent
tax on all manufactured goods, in an
effort to balance the Federal govern
ment budget. Leaders here are con
vinced that tHe question as to whether
or not the State will impose a State
on land, with a sales tax and part of
the gasoline tax suggested as good
sources.
2. Higher salaries lor teachers.
3. Opposition to any further econo
my in the operation of the public
schools on the grounds that any more
economy will injure standards of In
struction given.
4. Abolition of the State Board of
Equalization by means of a Constitu
tional amendment that will put all
school administration in hands of a
self-perpetuating State School Board
and thus remove it from any inter
ference or controls by the State gen
eral aaeembty.
5. A State supported eight months
school term, to assure teachers and
executives of State pay checks from
the Treasurer’s Office for eight in
stead of six months and thus remove
the uncertainty of pay checks from
local governments.
None of the speakers, naturally,
came out and advocated this platform
in so many words. But after much
beating about the bushes, moet of the
speeches made eventually pointed to
