Doubtless Mr. TiLson shared the state

country to expect of Its congressmen

Many of them doubtless have that
capacity, but many others do not
possess it, which may account for
*ome of the many bunglesome legisla
tive jobs that are turned out In the
course of a session.
President Hoover has been accused
of playing a master hand at politics
in the appointment of Atlee Pomerene,
'ormer Democratic United States sen
ator from Ohio, as chairman of the
reconstruction Finance Corporation.
T t has been claimed that it would
;often public sentiment in Pomerene’s
native state, and that it would make
he corporation’s board really bi
partisan and tend to remove it from
•lolitios if possible. The charge is also
heard that the appointment of the
Ohioan, thus giving the Democrats
a majority on the board, would re
move from the President a large por
tion of the responsibility for the
hoard’s acts, and at the same time
'hrottle criticism from outside the
ranks of Mr. Hoover's own party.
Naturally, whatever the President
may have done, it could and probably
would have been construed as a po
’itical move, however altruistic Mr.
Hoover’s motives may have been.
| Whether any or all or none of these
speculations have any basis in fact,
there is pretty general agreement that
the appointment was a wise and fit
ting one, and that Pomerene has'thk
ability to handle the job. Te is credit
ed with a big hand in the framing of
the legislation that created the Fed
eral Reserve act during the Wilsop
administration, when he was in the
■ Senate, which would give the new
' chairman a good background for the
! successful performance of his new
r duties.
Pomerene is GJ years old, and a very
active man for one of that age, but
no one is considered very old at that
1 stage of life these days. He is a mem
r ber of one of the largest law firms in
1 his home city of Cleveland. His legal
1 career began in Canton, Ohio, in 1886.
i and later became city solicitor and
f prosecuting attorney. In 1910 he wap
b elected lieutenant governor of Ohio,
s and two months later was elected
# United States senator, serving a dozeA
i I years in the upper house of Congresd.
- For the past eight years he assisted
• in the government’s prosecutioh oi
e the oil fraud cases, being associated
.- in that work with Owen J. Roberts^
- .of Philadelphia, whom President!
Hoover appointed to the United Btates
d Supreme Court in 1930. He was backed,
t- by Ohio for the Democratic nomlna
i- tion for president in 1923, and last
y month placed the name of Governor 1

ment, no North arolina trucks .can
make more than four trips a
to Maryland. Pennsylvania; New jsn
sey or New York withoat buying a
Virginia license and a license in all
the other states visited or traversed,
thus making interstate hauling at
more than four trips a month almost
prohibitive. [
The Virginia truck owners, headed
by C. Fair Brooke, of Richmond
maintained that the proposed agree
ment for eight trips a month would
be of just as much benefit to North
Carolina as it would to Virginia truck
owners, since It would permit this
State to ship Us raw materials and
manufactured products not only into
Virginia, but into all the other, statte
with which Virginia has thjs type of
reciprocity agreement, without im
posing any additional cost upon tbs
North Carolina truck owners. It wad
also pointed out that there are more
trucks and truck lines In this state
than in Virginia and that this State
is an important shipping oenter.
The boards of directors of the two
associations were addressed at a lun
cheon meeting by Charles Ross, attor

W. P. Wr'tley, of a
fingerprint expert, testified he ex
amined French's automobile after the
shooting and found a number of fin
gerprints. He identified them as hav
ing been left by Owens and said he
was unable to identify one print.
Counsel for Owens asked the court
for permission to ~re-examine the jury
when court opened today. The re
quest was based on the fact that
newspapers carried accounts of
Owens' arrest on charges of grand
larceny and highway robbery.
Owens was arrested yesterday on
the charge of the hold-up of a chain
grocery store. In which STSO was
taken, at the point of a gun on July
9. He also was charged with stealing
an automobile valued at $350.
Supplementary Budget*

(Continued from page One.)
tention is focused on the supplemental
budgets for the six months term.
Last year the board did not fix any
limits for the supplementation of the
six months item budgets and ap
proved whatever levies had been
agreed upon by the boards of county
commissioners and the county boards
of education. Borne members of the
board wanted to fix a limit beyond
which the six months term could eat
be supplemented and local taxes le
vied, on the grounds that the State
aupported six months term should be
adequate for all the counties and that
the taxpayers should not be required
to pay out any additional taxes for
the support of this term. But those
favoring unlimited supplementation,
won out. The result was that some
counties supplemented the six months
term more than 50 per cent and
joined by local taxes half as much
'again as they received from the State.
What action the board will take
this year with regard to the supple
mental budgets for this coming school
year remains to be seen. It saay de
cide to let the counties do as they
please about It, as they did last year.
But indications are htat, unless the
counties hold these budgets down to a

minimum, the board may decide to
step in and refuse to approve budgets
that seem to be execssive in any way.
To date supplemental budgets have
been received from about 80 counties
and more are coming in almost daily—
or as fast as the county school boards
and the county commissioners can
get together and approve the budgets.
It is hoped that all the budgets will
be in the office of Board of Equaliza
tion here by about August 10, when
the board will meet to examine them.
An examination of the supplemen
tal budgets already approved by the
county boards and submitted here,
show- that a good many items have
been included in these budgets that
really should not be. For instanoe,
several of them carry items for the
county accountants or the county trea
surers. Yet there is no law which per
mits extra levies to be made for these
county officials under the guise of a
school levy. In other budgets are pro
visions for paying the entire salaries
of the school attendance officers, al
though the law provides that half the
salaries of these attendance officers
Madamoitelle From Armeatierco!
shall come from the county general
fund, with the Board of Equalization
paying the remainder.
In other words, it is evident that
in some of the counties an effort is
being made to include other than
school matters in these supplemental
budgets, in order to keep the county
general fund levy down as low as pos
sible. But it is not believed that the
Board of Equalization will permit
these Items that have nothing what
ever to do with the six months school
term to remain in the budgets.
On the whole, however, these sup
plemental budgets so far received are
much smaller than they were last
year, kith fewer supplements called
for teachers' and superintendents’
