Raleigh. May 11.--One of the most
significant things about the campaign
speech matin here by [Jeutenant Gov

was that he did not once either men

of the three candidates for the nom

ly to J. C. B. Ehringhaus. as if he
were the only other candidate for the
nomination, it is being pointed out by
observers here today. This fact is be
ing interpreted to indicate that Foun
tain is either making overtures of
some sort to the Maxwell followers in
the hope that if he he does not men

get some of their votes, or that he
believes his only real danger and op
jMwitinn is from Ehringhaus.

Washington, May 11 < AP)—A care

disapproval. This must be submitte

on the presidential veto power.
The measure does several things op
