Raleigh, April 2.—ln spite of prices :mnning from 20 to 25 percent below hose of the previous year, North Car olina dairymen sold nearly 17 million iollars worth of milk and cream to creameries, cheese factories, ice cream plants, mil kreceiving plants and city consumers during the year 1931. ac cording to a statement hy W. L. Clevenger, dairy manufacturing spe cialist at the North Carolina State College. ' Mr. Clevenger figures it this why. The production of creamery butter In North Carolina by 21 creameries ant milk plants approximated 2,210,000 pounds which was an Increase of 73,- 000 pounds over 1930. The average price paid to dairymen for the but erfat delievered was 26.1 cents a pound. The creameries thereforoc pur chased $475,000 worth of butterfat se cured from 11,000 North Carolina farms. The three cheese factories in the State produced 423,000 pounds of cheese to make which they bought $80,760 worth of milk from about 1.000 farmers located in the mountain area. The thirty plants, exclusive of drug tnd candy stores, making ice-cream in North Carolina produced 2,500,000 gallons of the product from 650,000 gallons of whole sweet milk and 1,- 126.400 pounds of sweet cream. The value o fthis milk at 20 cents a fcal lon was $130,000 and of the butterfat at 40 cents a pound was $150,960 which was paid to farmers of the State. There are 27 milk plants pasteuriz ing and distributing milk. Some sell raw milk. About 10 million gallons se cured from 2UU farms were used last year. This milk was delievered to the plants at a price of 25 cents a gallon thus rtfturnin gto the 200 fartm is sup plying it about $2,500:000. There are also, says Mr. Clevenger, about. 1,000 retail dairymen who delievered about 25 million gallons of milk to urban consumers last year. This milk sold for an average of 50 cents a gallon and thus brought the sum of $12,500,- 000 to the dairymen. Candidates Open Fierce Fire Upon Each Other In Hot Fight For Governor (Continued from Page One.) our tax burdens were accumulating, I never heard of it.” Ehringhausi In his speech In States ville. devoted very little time to Max well, but trained his oratorical guns on Fountain .tending to show that as lieutenant governor, Fountain was in a position to exert great Influence on the legislation enacted both by the 1929 and 1931 General Assemblies. "As speaker of the House in 1927, and as the presiding office of the senate In 1929 and 1931, Lieutenant Governor Fountain had infinitely more power and opportunity to shape and control legislation than he could possibly have as governor, Ehringhaus stated. "For either as speaker or lie utenant governor, he had the oppor tunity to introduce laws and speak for them on the floor. “Yet our friend. Mr. Fountain, is now going about the State complain ing about the legislation in which he himself participated and which he himself helped to write and enact. He will not. even though I have begged him to do so, be specific enough to State what legislation it Is that he complains of. "Another thing worth considering about Mr. Fountain, is that in spite of the fact that he held these positions o t so great Importance and influence for eo long a time, he cannot point— or does not point— to any single mea sure of outstanding State-Hide U&por- tance which he himself introduced. Yet has been in the general assembly for nearly 15 years, the last three sessions in the highest offices -one as speaker and the last two as lieute nant governor. “Let Mr. Fountain tell us what mea sures he has sponsored which have contritudeb to tax relief or which have protected the reights of the peo ple against centralization. If there has been too much of taxes, too much centralization, too much public spend ing or too many bond issues. Mr. Fountain will have to bear his share of the responsibility. For he has been a member of every legislature through out almost this entire period of spend ing. “Incidentally, we must remember than in 1931 when everybody was cry ing for relief from taxes and public expense. Mr. Fountain, as presiding officer of the senate, set up one of the most expensive senate organiza tions ever known, generously provid ing 51 employes to serve 50 senators, more than one for each senator. In cluded in this number were 15 pages to serve the 50 senators, although in the house, with its 120 members, there were but 10 pages.” In his speech in Asheville Thursday night. Mr. Fountain said: “One of the great causes of the pre sent financial collapse is that some of our legislation has been largely in the interest of the few and not for the benefit of the masses. Wealth has become centralized, business has be come consolidated, which has resulted in unemployment. “There has been a concerted drive throughout the country to remove the government from the direct control of the people. Instead of being governed by Constitutional officer, elected by the people, we are now in many in stance being governed by bueraus and commissions which are beyond the reach of the people.” Fined $5 For Speeding The only case in police court today was that in which C, P. Lowry. Jr., was fined $5 and costs for speeding. He had pleaded not guilty. ‘CUPBOARD CHILD’ HAPPY AGAIN ./, ,j| iJp J] Mflp \ • d&M j J || : •"'-4 ;, K fc :v , ... iipF I•• wbSSwklf'; j 5 .CTof' Hr Hi lit Vm 1 1 ■%.;s j Hg 9 Hr. 9H89 1 Hr 9991. ..9 ‘Wi?

A senator, when his turn does come, has a whole state to campaign in. pnd if it is a large state, as ex-Con gressman James T. Begg of Ohio (who himself had senatorial thoughts in mind at the time) once remarked to me, “it’s enough to kill a man.” Nevertheless, a senator is not per ennially in the position of a toad un der a harrow, like a representative. Indeed, the senate is a calmer chain ber now than the house of representa tives. The representatives are fev erish; not the senates. The senators, for one thing, number two influential medical men in their own ranks—Dr*. Royal 8. Copeland and Henry D. Hat field. who have convinced their bre thren of the virtues of a five-day-a week schedule. And they are not so immediately afraid of the voters. <. The representatives have worked six days weekly all this session. The two major parties are so evenly bal anced, too, that they all have to be present. They convene at noon and generally adjourn about 5. These do not seem like long hours, hut it must not be forgotten that there are committee meetings also—at least two hours ad ditional. Besides, a couple of hun dred letters a day to write is not an especially heavy mail for the avergae representative. Furthermore, he has visitors from home, who mustn't be neglected. All this while our representative has his particular renomination and campaign ard re-election chances up on which to meditator These are tight times; perhaps the personal finances of the representative are in a jam. The country contains some 14.00* hotels having 25 or more rooms. Easter present*. She is rapidly regaining her health.

Groups Hear Dr. Meyer's Address A most appreciative audience in Central school auditorium Friday even ing heard the address by Dr. Harold D. Meyer, of the University of North Carolina, delivered before a joint Father's Night meeting pul on by the West End, Central and Clark Street Parent-Teacher Associations. AH three are grammar schools. Mrs. J. H. Tucker, president of West End P. T. A. ( and present - elect of Central P. T. A. for next year, presided over the meeting. The audience joined ip singing. “America,” after which E. M. Rollins superintendent of the city schools, led in a prayer that the fathers, mothers and teachers might be given wisdom in the training of children, bringing them up to be good citizens and l Christians. Mrs. Tucker called on Mrs. M. C. Miles, president of Ctork Street P. T. A. to welcome the guests and vis itors. She greeted those present by extending a special welcome to Dr. Meyer. A most enjoyable feature of the pro gram was a quartet composed of R. I. Jones, I. D. Smith. W. B. Harri ion and Tobias Kearney, who sang two old favorite songs. “Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms/’ and “The Old Oaken Bucket" R. G.

Then for about 45 minutes he held the attention of the audience in the address, giving the impression of a speaker of compelling personality, couching his thoughts in clear and glowing terms and presenting them with a forcefulness attained by few.
