RACE FOR SENATE IS STILL TOSS UP (Continued from Page one.) clean and that Morrison will be com pletely eliminated from the picture. In this they are being assisted by the Grist Battalion of Death, who are at last reluctantly admitting that Rey nolds will be first, but maintaining that Frank D. Grist will be second and Morrison fuorth c*r fifth. It is reported here also that Tam C. Bowie for several weeks has been ad mitting privately that Reynolds seem ed to be in the lead and has been urging those who could not vote for him to vote for any body except Mor rison. There is one thing about Reynolds however, which the Morrison forces are relying on. That is that while Reynolds undoubtedly draws big crowds and stirs upa great deal of enthusiasm with his speeches, that this enthusiasm quickly off and dies down. Those who go to hear Reynolds eajoy the show he puts on .applaud hfs ability as an actor -often in a part known to be foreign to his real nature- laugh with hitn at the other candidates as he verbally caricatures them atuf enjoys his barbed, sarcas tic sallies at his oppents. But when the show is over and they get to think ing about what he had said, many actually do wonder what he said and just how much he meant of what he said. They wonder if In spite of his good looks and pleasing personality he would be able to impress the mem bers of the Senate with what he would have to say and make them re member It, or whether the members of the Senate would just consider him another “playboy" strutting his stuff. Many who have heard his speeches wonder afterwards —and are REYNOLDS TO BE HERE TOMORROW Candidate For U. S. Senator Not To Speak But Will Stop In City Robert R. Reynolds, of Asheville, candidate for the Democratic nom ination for United States Senator against Cameron Morrison, will be a visitor in Henderson for a short time tomorrow, it was announced today by Henry T. Morris, manager iof the Reynolds campaign in this county. Mr. Reynolds will not make an ad dress in Henderson, but he will be at the Vance hotel for a short time, ar riving here about noon, and is anxious to meet his friends and supporters there at that time. Mr. Reynolds is the second candi date for the senatorial nomination to visit the city during the campaign, one of his opponents. Tam C. Bowie of West Jefferson, having spoken here several weeks ago. No other one to have made a visit here since the start of the campaign was Lieutenant Gov ernor R. T. Fountain, of Rocky Mount, who is a candidate for governor. He did not speak, but was in Henderson a few weeks ago. Mr. Reynolds is making a very ac tive campaign, and is speaking in all parts of the State. Mr. Morris said it was impossible for his candidate to arrange his itinerary so as to get here for an address, but that he is spending a few hours in the city on his visit at this time. still wondering. If all those who go to hear Rey nolds speak are for him and have gone out to work for him and work for him as hard as they talk about him and the number of votes he is going to get. Reynolds will undoubted ly be high man in the first primary; it is generally agreed. But many are becoming convinced that like the beer which Reynolds would bring back by repealing the prohibition law, that there is more froth than beer, ami that there is much more talk about Reynolds than there are actual votes for him. Another thing that seems to be re acting to the advantage of Morrison is that many Democrats are thinking more and more of the difficult posi tion the Democratic party would find itseif in in the campaign this fall if Reynolds should be nominated, with a wet Democratic candidate running on a dry Democratic platform, run ning again? ta dry Republican can didate running on a dry Republican platform. Some also seem to think ihat if Reynolds is nominated, he may try to pack the State Democratic Con vention with wet delegates in order to get a wet emocratic platform, al though few give any credence to this theory’. The majority of obser vers believe that the State Democratic Convention will write a dry plank In to its platform, as it has in the past, regardless of whether Reynolds is high man or not. Still another factor that is regarded as being favorable to Morrison is that while his followers and freinds have not made as much ballyhoo and noise as have Reynolds friends, they have undoubtedly been at work and are still working. According to recent re ports heard here, the Morrison forces are making house-to-house canvasses in many counties. This has been go ing on in Wayne and in Mecklenburg counties for a week or more, accord ing to reports .as well as in many others. Stolen kisses may be sweet, but still sweeter are those that might have been stolen. .........

Reynolds is not related in any wise to the Reynolds Tobacco people of Winston Salem. He was born in Buncombe County, N. C., where he has lived all his life engaged in the practice of law for the past 20 years. He is opposed to the return of the open saloon. He says “Let’s take liquor from the hands of the bootlegger where it is now uncontrolled and place it in the hands of the govern ment where it will be controlled—Let’s takethe tax off of land and place it on liquor.

Reynolds, of Ashe ville, candidate for the United States Senate from North Caro lina to succeed Senator Cameron Morrison, has drawn up a plat form of principles and objectives for which he wtU work if nom inited and elected. Modification of the national pro hibition taws banking reforms to guarantee deposits, payment of the soldiers’ adjusted service certificates. cheaper electric power rates, and more adequate regulation of trusts and monopo lies are among the high rights of his platform. “I am opposed to the centrali zation of government and the concentration of greet wealth into a few hands,” soys Mr. Reynolds. "Unearned money is a dangerous thing for any man or any group of men. I believe in equal opportunities for all better government and tax re lief. I am of the plain people they are with me and I am with them—we are in accord " His platform in detail is as fol lows: I favor and shall insist upon (1) Equal rights to all and spe cial privileges to none. The government should be handed back to the people like Andrew Jackson did one hundred years ago. Divorce the Wall street thieves from the administra tion. and pass laws with drastic penalties for such affairs as have recently been uncovered by Sen ator Johnson and Congressman Patman. Special privileges granted by the government has given birth to monopolies, fattened big bu*i ine«S, destroyed Itttle business made miriiofraires of the few and reduced 4 the r naapy to popverty.
