Raleigh, Sept. 10.- -The independent
gasoline dealers of North Carolina
are going to continue to battle what
they consider unfair methods of com
petition from the larger gasoline and
oil companies by putting their own
cooperative gasoline and oil terminal
In Wilmington, it was learned here
today. Many of these dealers met in
Wilmington yesterday and plans were
virtually completed to build an in
dependent gasoline terminal there at
a cost of approximately $35,000.
The independent dealers maintain
that the big gasoline and oil com
panies, with their strings o company
owned filling stations and their strict
contracts, are trying to squeeze the
independent dealers out of the pic
ture and get control of the retail gas

their juggling of contract prices and

To See Captain Farmer
Thomasville. Sept, 10. I AP) Two
officers were struck by rocks and a
child was hit by a tear gas bumb as
1.000 strikers of the Thomasville
Chnir Company engaged in two short
lived clashes with highway patrolmen
here today.
About mid-morning the stilkers
gathered about the mill gate to pre
vent a truck from entering the mill
grounds. In an effort to make pas
sage through the muttering crowd,
patrolmen threw tear gas bombs, and
it was at this time the child, whose
name was not learned, was struck a
slight blow.
The trouble seemed to have passed
over until the idle employees gather- 1
ed at lunch time to prevent three
workers from leaving the mill.
Earlier in the day the trio had en
tered (he mill to resume their places
;it their machines. At noon they were
being escorted through the strikers
ranks in automobiles driven by mill
officials. There were three cars with
one worker in each.
.A# the first machine approached
the crowd, rocks began to fly. The
automobile was hit several times, and
two patrolmen escorting the machine
also were hit. though neither was
hurt. In the confusion, the other two
automobiles escaped unnoticed.
Patrolmen immediately dived into
the crowd to seek out the rock throw
ers, and Earle Keyes. 32 ,a machinery
worker, and Fred Brown. 28. a pack
er. were arrested. They were taken to
Lexington, where they were charged
with assault with a deadly weapon.
Meantime ,tbe mob lined up to con
front the mobiJied patt-olmeiv. who
stood ready for an assault.
In a thort time, however, the crowd
began to disperse, and an hour later
the mill vn rlnwri. striker's had dis
appeared, the patrolmen had i
gone back to their various posts. |
At mid-afternoon the situation was j
quiet. t
Approximately 1,000 workers struck I
more than a month ago in protest J
against wage cut®, and since ttren have |
been idle. ,
Several conferences have b-'en held
In an attempt to formulate some plan
whereby work might he resumed but
so far no announcement of any agree
ment or disagreement has been made.

nor Gardner, vrtio was here today at
tending the Institute of Government,
was "allocked” by news of a clash be
tween highway patrolmen and strik
ers at the Thomasville Chair Company
factory, and said he ‘‘deplored the out
break of violence.'*
The governor expressed particular
concern over the condition of the child
injured during the Trouble.
Governor Gardner said he would
have nothing to say regarding the
matter until he could confer with Cap
tain Charles F. Farmer, of the patrol,
who was in Thomaaville when the j
trouble occurred. i

It remains to be seen how effective
the plan will prove!
Anyway, It la a fact that state laws
do exist, in at least a dozen common
wealths. which if strictly enforced,
will intake it easy for the authorities
greatly to restrict the number of bal
lots cast.
Moreover, Investigators for the Lea
