CfiUUALGAMEFOR
BIG FIVE TEAMS
State Meets Wake Forest on
Latter's Baseball Lot
Today
Raleigh, May 10. The crucial game
in the present Big Five baseball race
is set for this afternoon when State
College and Wake Forest, the two
leading clubs, meet at Wake Forest
at 3:30.
By beating Carolina and Davidson
last week. State moved into second
place in the Big Five standing and
into a position to challenge the Dea
cons for the state title.
Wake Forest is unbeaten in the
)ptate. having won four straight
games. State holds four wins and two
losses. Should Wake Forest win to
day. ihe Techs will be practically eli
minated. On the other hand, a State
win will place the West Raleigh team
in a position where it will have a
good chance of overtaking the Bap
tists.
Aside from the potentialities of the
game as to effects on the league
standing, it will offer another pit
chers' battle between Junie Barnes
of the Deacons and John Lanning of
State.
It will be the fourth time these two
men have faced each other In the
last two years. On the othre occasions.
Barnes has won. This Barnes, who is
left handed, has chunked his team to
all four of its Big Five wins this.sea
son. Lanning isalso« tertdited with
State's four wins and the two losses.
MAXWELL GRABBING
SPOTLIGHT LATELY
(Continued from Page One.)
school textbook issue into the cam
paign by advocating State rental of
textbookss to children. He was the
first to advocate safer banking re
gulations. Last week he brought out
another new issue by advocating the
support and operation of the school
buses from highway funds. Yesterday
he issued a statement that branded
the recent statement issued by the
State Textbook Commission to the ef
fect that the average cost of text
books in the elementary grades is not
more than 75 cents per child, as
nothing more than propaganda to off
set his demands for the State rental
of textbooks.
This stinging assault upon the State
Textbook Commission was interprteed
here as being little more than a thin
ly veiled rebuke to the entire State
Department of Public Instruction and
created a decided sensation in State
departmental circles here. It is also
being interpreted to indicate that
Maxwell is in the fight to the finish
for ihe nomination and that he has
Just begun to fight. It is also conced
ed that there is not an abler con
troversialist in the State than Max
well.
Fountain was in Raleigh yesterday
and made a speech in the court house
here last night. But he failed to in
ject anything new into the campaign
from his standpoint or to do more
than generalize about side issues,
with the result that people today were
still more interested in Maxwell’s
"spat” with the textbook commission
and the Department of Public In
struction than they were In the rov
ing ratiocinations of the Rocky Mount
rambler last night.
According to the statement issued
by the School Book Commission last
week. the average cost of textbooks
in all the elementary grades is not
more than $554,262 a year for an aver
age enrollment of 738.078 school chil
dren. which would make an average
yearly textbook cost of only 75 cents.
Maxwell, in his statement, branded
the figures given out by the textbook
commission as "flagrantly mislead
ing' and intimated that it must have
been given out by an administration
appointed board to help "the heir-ap
parent (Ebrtnghaus) in the June pri
mary.” Maxwell contended that the
average coat of the basic books re
quired, to say nothing of the many
supplemental books used, la $2.20 a

Bulldogs To Play Last
Season Game Tomorrow
The Henderson high school's fight
ing Bulldog nine will sing its swan
song tomorrow afternoon at League
Park at 4 o'clock, when it meets the
Oxford Orphanage in the final game
of the 1932 season. The locals have
met the Orphans once before this sea
son and defeated them, and tomor
row will see them fighting hard to
close their season with another win.
The 1932 season hasn't been such a
successful one for the local high
school in the games won and lost tak
ing only two games in conference
play, but has been from the point of
boys participating in games for the
school. Coach Payne, the high school
the average for the first seven grades
is $5.75. Maxwell referred to the text
book commission's statement in his
speech last night in Wilkesboro, when
he said:
“I do not see how the .School Book
Commission, authorized by the 1931
General Assembly to investigate the
cost of school textbooks, hut which
only held its organization meeting
Friday, was able to learn to the pen
ny what elementary school books
cost. That looks like high-powered ef
ficiency to me. Their statement that
the average cost of books is only 75
cents per pupif per year is so ab
surdly low that I should like for every
parent in North Carolina who has
children in school to answer for him
self or herself whether the books for
their children have cost only 75 cents
a year. Many single books cost more
than that.
"If true, this fact constitutes one
of the most compelling condemna
tions of our public school system, and,
if true, means that our children are
being required to try to make bricks
without straw and to jspend their
time in school without tools to work
with. If true, it means the starvation
of pupil opportunity."

"However, the mere balancing of
charges.” added the Dakotan, "while
it prevents us from getting deeper in
to the hole, doesn't get us out of it.
"Our national and state debts will

$50,000,000 outstanding on which it's
estimated the loss will be $20,000(000.
The state has taken over immense
areas, but the land can't be sold at
sufficient prices to settle cliams for
$50,000,000. The sooner the holders of
those obligations recognize that they
have lost 40 per cent of their invest
ment. the snonrr they will get the
other 60 per cent back again. Not
until they do recognize it can the
farms he offered at. figures low

“I believe a similar situation, with
local variations, prevails the country

losses I can see no prospect of re
