MARKING BALLOTS TO BE PERMITTED t Irummitt Outlines Provi »ioim Qf AurtritUan Vote Lrw Ip Stole Dally Dlopateb Unrrna, U Ur Sir Walter Hotel. _ RY J. C- KAHREUVIIX RpUigb. May 17.—While the Aus tralian ballot law specifically declares that “no markers shall be named or permitted in primary elections," there are three methods by which those desiring assistance in marking their ballots may receive it. Attorney Gen eral Dennis G. Brummitt points out in a letter to Judge J. Crawford Biggs, chairman of the State Board of Elections. Attorney General Brum mitt also calls attention to that sec tion of the law (Section 140 t express ly prohibiting any loitering or elec tioneering in the vicinity of the poll ing places, suggesting that the regis trars and judges of election should keep this section in mind and strictly enforce it. The section is as follows: “No person shall, while the polls are open at polling places, loiter about or do any electioneering within such polling places or within 50 feet there of." The three methods by which voters may obtain assistance in marking their ballots are set forth by Mr. Brummitt as follows: 1. A voter may ask and secure aid from any election official at his vot ing preciqct that is. from either the registrar or from one of judges of •lection. 2. Or the voter may select any member of his or her family, who shall have the right to go into the voting hooth with the voter and as sist in the preparation of the ballot. 3. Or the voter may obtain the as sistance of any other person request ed by the voter and approved by the majority of the election officials. It is quite clear that markers are not to be appointed in a primary and that no person should, on his own re quest. be permitted to assist a voter,” Mr. Brummitt points out. "Assistance should be permitted only when the re quest is made directly and in person by the voter desiring assistance."

For what ever the affair proves to be worth in the long run. he is entitled ot con gratulations. The Democrats, in addition to be ing surprised and dlsconfited, realize that they are threatened with serious discard in their own ranks. Conse quently they are at least temporarily upset out of proportion to the con sequence of the reverse they have suffered. Nevertheless, a creditable showing even in a fairly initial skirmish will not go far toward recompensing the G. O. P., when the main engagement opens, for the disadvantage of a three-year depression as a background —unless the scene changes mighty convincingly in the urgently imme diate meantime. If that occurs, election day odds have to be altered. To be sure, Democratic prophets contend that an uplift, sufficient and soon enough to influence the voting is impossible; also that the electorate will hold the G. O. P. responsible for what it has been through, anyway— but of course these twin predictions are guesswork. The chance of a Democratic ssplit, as above suggested, is likewise to be reckoned with. None of this list of contingencies seems to promise that the president’s recent message to congress will count materially in deciding tge political fate of the nation in November. EQUALIZING BOARD ALLOTS TEACHERS (Continued from Page One.) teachers to schools that really need 1,000 teachers. In doing this, the board has decided to make an in dividual study of each school where the attendance this year seems to warrant an increase in the number of teachers. In its two-day meeting last week the board completed its study of the school needs in only about ten counties. Teachers were awarded last year on the following basis in the elemen tary schools: three teachers for the ! first 75 pupils in average daily at- | tendance, and one teacher for each additional 36 pupils. In the high schools, three teachers were awarded for the first 50 pupils, four teachers to 80 pupils and one additional-teach er for each 31 additional pupils in average dally attendance. It has already been decided to use this same basis for awarding teach ers in schools where the average daily attendance is tbe same or less than last year, so that there will be no decrease in the number of teach ers in schools where the attendanoe has remaindto thes ame. In some 150 schools, where there has been a de crease in attendance, some 190 teach ers will be lost. This still leaves some 600 to 700 schools in which the at tendance has increased sufficiently to warrant additional teachers. The board has a real job on its hands to allot 400 teachers in place of 1,000. Tar Heels Urged To Visit Stores In Carolina Week DNllr I>lnpn«-k Rarrae, In Ikr Sir Walter Hotel. BY J. C. BASKERVILI. Raleigh, May 18.-Every North Car olinian was urged today by the De partment of Conservation and De velopment to visit retail stores this week to inspect displays assembled in connection with Carolina Week.” Increased sales of these goods will stimulate business and place more money in circulation, the department pointed out.
