HIGHSWILLPLAY CHAPEL HILL HERE Conference Came To B c Flayed on Diamond at League Park Henderson highs meet Chapel Hill tomorrow afternoon at 4:15 o'clock at League Park for their third confer ence baseball engagement of thg sea son. The Orange county nine is rated as a veiy strong one and the Bulldogs will have to click in fine style to keep their conference record clean. The 17-6 defeat at the hands of Zeb Vance yesterday clearly showed the weakness of the beam. They garnered 11 hits to 15 for Zeb Vance but Zeb Vance scored 17 runs. The secret of the whole matter is Hendersons er rors. The infield and outfield missed balls that should have been easy outs. Harris, star twirler of the Bulldogs, was held in reserve yesterday for the game with the Chapel Hill aggrega tion. which routed Cary, the winner over Raleigh. 21-8. Practically the same lineup that started the game yesterday, with the exception of the pitcher, will start Thursday against the boys from the University town.

The famous horse had been on a strict diet of food brought him from Australia. Monday he ate barley and alfalfa from an adjoining field.

BASKKKViLL. Raleigh. April 6.- An increase in •the sales of new automobiles in North Carolina and a consequent increase in revenue from the gasoline tax is expected by onairman n,. B. eJffress of the State Highway Commission, from now on. He also believes that more cars will now be licensed, since the cost of new licenses has been re duced one-fourth since April 1. so that licenses can now be purchased for three-fourths of their original cost. The largest single factor indicating better business conditions in the au tomobile industry, in the opinion of Chairman effress, has been the an nouncement by the Ford Motor Com pany of its new models and especially the prices of these models. "The entire automobile industry was being held back until the new Ford models and prices were announced," Jeffress said. "For all the other auto mobile companies were waiting to see what Ford was going to do in order to adjust their models and prices somewhat within the same limits. The buying public was also waiting for the new Ford models and prices be fore buying anything. "Now that these new models and prices are out, I believe new car sales will pick up rapidly, since those who have been intending buying new cars or who must buy new ones to replace old ones that must be discarded, now see what they want to buy. It was significant that as soon as the new Ford prices were announced that Chevrolet at once reduced its prices to virtually the same level, and a number of other automobile manufac turers have also revised their prices. “The result is that thee prices of new cars are now down to such a low level that many people can really save money by buying a new car in stead of trying to continue to use the old, worn-out cars they are now us ing." I am looking forward to a ma terial Increase In the sale of new cars in North Carolina and the entire na tion this month and I think every one will benefit from it" Toe perfection of tolerance is in the ate:. ihtiaiafflf -t, Number By 17-6 Score State Employees Chip In' Nickles To Buy Ice Water Unllyr Ul.pairk flarrun, Im the Sir Walter Hotel.

High Point, April 6.—A. J. Maxwell, candidate for governor, was the speak er at a banquet meeting of traffic officials of carriers and shippers at the High Point Country Club tonlghL Citing the fact that hte Federal gov ernment has increased its spending twenty per cent since the depression began in 1929. Mr. Maxwell said "The railroads of this country are nearly all broke, but If they had followed tha same policy of the Federal govern ment, and had failed to make draatio reductions in their operating ex penses to meet this emergency, there would be more scrap iron on the mar ket today .than it could consume in a century. And I don't believe this country will find Its way back to a sound condition until government makes the same kind of readjustment of its huge spendings that business enterprises are compelled to make if they survive.
