Hopes For Tennis Honor In England Whntoledon. England. June 29 <AP> —America's hopes for victory in the men’s singles of the classic Wimble don tennis tourney today rested solely on the slim shoulders of her nation al champion. Ellsworth Vines, Jr. The Californian marched Into the semi-final rounds as a n avalanche of international tennis power swept two of his fellow country men out of the singles play and decimated the Ameri can ranks in the mixed doubles. One disaster after another bowled the Americans over after Vines, in the simplest fashion, opened the day aus piciously with a straight set victory over Enrique Maier, Spanish cham pion. 6-2, 63. 6-2.

O’Neil Sluggers On Friday To Play Franklinton Nine The O’Neil Sluggers will meet the strong Franklinton team here on the local diamond Friday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock, it was said today. The two teams have not met before this season and the Franklinton nine is said to be a strong one, and a good game is in prospect for Friday. Outcome of Senate Fight Is Amittedly Uncertain (Continued on Page Three.) that Reynolds would be high man, and that thees are now going to vote for Morrison. The Morrison forces also maintain that within the past two weeks the Democrats of the State have come to realize that there are more important issus involved in the contest for the Senatorial nomination than prohibition repeal—the central plank and almost the only plank in the Reynolds platform. Yet the Reynolds supporters are growing more confident daily that Reynolds will again ge a larger vote than Morrison in the primary Satur day and John Bright Hill, State man ager for Reynolds, insists that his majority will be at least 50,000, if not more. The Reynolds managers point to the fact in spite of the frantic efforts made" ty the Morrison cam paign organization to line up the wo men of the State for Morrison, that more and more are coming into the Reynolds camp. Yesterday Mrs. Edwin C. Gregory, of Salisbury, daughter of the lase Senator Lee S. Overman, whom Reynolds opposed for the sena torial nominaion six years ago. ar rived here to take charge of the wo men’s division in the Reynolds Head quarters here. It is claimed by the Reynolds forces here that his prohibi tion repeal platform is appealing to the women as much as the men and tha many more influential women are working for him than for Morrison. The betting odds here are two to one on Reynolds with plenty of Rey nolds money in evidence but compara tively few takers. Many Morrison sup porters here who admit they are going to vote for Morrison and want him to win admit they do not care to risk any money on the outcome. There are some indications, how ever, that tend to show a much bettei outlook for Morrison than a week ago. It is conceded that the talk that has been going the rounds concerning a link-up beween the Fountain and Reynolds forces has been doing Rey nols no good, especially tn the Pied mont and western part of the State where Reynolds has a large following and Fountain a very small following The total annual cost of medical care in the country is estimated at some 13,000.000,000. ißegSltel CITY LEAGUE M.

EHRINGHAUS WILL TAKE NO CHANCES (Continued from Pag* On#.) that Fountain may let out of his bag at the last moment and want to pile up such an impressive majority for Ehringhaus that it will settle mat ters for good. There is no denying the fact that Fountain and his managers have been working he past two weeks as they have never worked before, and that they are making desperate efforts not only to hold together the vote Foun tain received in the first primary, but to gain as many additional votes as possible. They have also realized that whatever new votes were to be gain ed must come from those who voted for A. J. Maxwell ln the first primary. So Fountain has appropriated two of Maxwell s platform planks with which to mend his own scaffolding. These two planks are the ones in favor of State rental of textbooks and in op position to a general sales tax. He is also making a desperate effort to con vince the people of the State that he is In favor of the present road law and maintenance of all county high ways by the State, although he bit terly fought this law in the 1931 Gen eral Assembly and has been scath ing in his denunciation of the present State Highway Commission and its chairman, E. B. Jeffress. Founain has undoubtedly made some gains during the past two weeks as the result of his absorption of the most popular planks in Maxwell’s platform and his change in front to wards the present highway law. But it is agreed that most of these gains have been confined to those eastern counties in which Fountain was al ready strong and that his new cam paign tactics have been almost inef fectual in most of the Piedmont and western counties. Those who have been through many of the Piedmont and western counties within the past week report that Fountain has lost heavily in this section, largely because of the charge made by his manager that there were at leaat 25,000 fraud ulent votes cast in these counties in the first primary. His advocay of rent ed textbooks has also made very little Impression, since tor hia campaign be fore the first pH miry, Vountaln point ed out that there are laws on the statute books now permitting any county or district to buy school books and rent them to the school children, and that hence no special legislation Is needed to bring about rented text books. Fountain’s new stand with regard to the sales tax Is also not proving very convincing. For while it is a fact that during the 1931 general assembly Fountain finally admitted, when pres sed to declare his stand, that of the two forms of sales tax he preferred the luxury to the general sales tax, It was generally believed then that Fountain would have accepted either the general or luxury tax could either have been enacted. It is an open secret that Fountain, as Lieutenant Gover nor and presiding over the senate, used all the influence he had to secure the enactment of the Hinsdale luxury tax bill, which in addition to taxing ‘obacco and cigarettes, taxed some 50 other articles, including automobiles, trucks, bank checks, candy, peanuts and soft drinks, just as does the pre sent Federal sales tax. This Is regard ed as one reason why Senator John Hinsdale of Wake county is now one of the Fountain’s chief supporters. Those who know the facts also re gard as ridiculous his claims that there is a great political ‘'machine" here, composed of the State depart ment heads and employes and domi nated by Governor O. Max Gardner, working for the nomination of Ehring haus. For the facts are that 75 per cent of the State department heads and State employes are supporting Fountain, largely because he has let it be whispered about that he favors the restoration of all salary cuts and the repeal of the Budget Act, along with the abolition of the Personnel Division, which is the States most hated department among State em ployes. because it passes on salaries. But the Ehringhaus forces are tak ing no chances. They are prepared. HUTTON WILL TAKE STAND FOR DENIAL Los Angeles. June 28.

Otherwise, the new Democratic plat form was ready for convention rati fication. It was the shortest state ment of policy in modern political history—between 1.200 and 1.400 words Briefer* it cal!j. lor a minimum slash of 25 percent in Federal expen ditures, amounting to a cut of ohe billion dollars, and strongly urges si milar cuts in state and city budgets. It proposes a return to the Demo cratic policy of a ‘’competitive" tariff for revenue only; pledgee the calling of an International conference on monetary issues for the purpose of restoring the price of silver; and de mands recognition of the "sancity" of the war debt obligation, while leaving the way open for leniency in payment during the world depression. The platform is a document per sonally sponsored by Governor Roose velt of New York. It was read today, but up to the last minute a snarl over prohibition prevented its final approval by the platform committee. The majority ln the drafting sub-committee, itself Roosevelt-dominated, reported a dif ference of opinion over exact word ing of the repeal submission plank Two members, not of the Roosevelt faction. Senator Glass of Virginia and William G. McAdoo of California, were not satisfied. HUNTCASE TRIED HERE IS REVERSED Raleigh.
