Raleigh, Sept. 12—(AP)—Oral ar
guments in the Mbs Elizabeth Har
rell “dog case” and 30 other cases
from the third and fourth judical
districts are on this week's calendar
of the State Supreme Court.
The court tomorrow will hear a mo
tion from a writ of certiorari in the
appeal of Joe Stafford from the death
penalty Imposed in Wayne county for
murder. He was convicted of killing
The “dog case” was appealed from
Henderson superior court after Miss
Harrell's conviction o na charge of
permitting a "vicious'' dog to run at
large. She was fined $5. Miss Har
rell contends that the dog that “bark
ed at” and “frightened” Margaret
Brinkley, l*-year-old school girl, was
not her “Shag.”
Only appeals from the third dis
trict will be called on Tueciray, when
the court begins work for the week.
Beginning Wednesday, appeals will
be called as docketed.
Counties In the two districts are:
Bertie. Halifax, Hertford, Northamp
ton, Vance. Warren, Harnett, Lee,
Johnston and Wayne.
In addition to the dog case, one
olher from Vance is on the docket for
argument, that being “Rollins vs.

of schools here is suing the county
commissioners for S9OO salary voted
him by the city schools board of
trustees, and payment of which was
refused by the county commissioners.

Retailer. In this article Mr. Dowell
Dowell Sounds Warning.
“As stated in the beginning, an act
similar to this will be introduced in
the 1933 session of the North Caro
lina General Assembly. If it should
become law, those merchants who
have their respective places of busi
ness in any of the forty counties of
the State bordering upon the boun
dary lines of other states, may as well
close up shop and seek new locations
in distant states. Small merchants lo
cated in the interior counties would
be forced out of business by chain
stores and other large competators.
Industry, as & matter of self-preserva
tion, would be driven from the State

The Mississippi genera) sales tax,
which went into effect April 30 of
this year, imposes a tax of two per
cent on the groes income, gross re
ceipts or groes proceeds of sales of all
individuals, firms, corporations, part
nerships within the State. It requires
monthly reports and remittances of
the tax and imposes drastic penalties.
“Under this tax, as I interpret it,
the manufacturer pays a tax of two
per cent, the jobber or wholesaler
pays a tax on his gross receipts of
two per cent and the retailer pays a
tax of two per cent on his gross
sales,” Dowell said. “Wherever pos
sible, of course, the tax will be passed
along to the other fellow in the form
of increased prices, so that the public
to whom the tax will be passed on
to eventually, wiH pay a tax of from
six to eight per cent on everything
Far Beaching in Scope.
The term “gross income" in the
Mississippi law is defined as “the
gross receipts of a taxpayer received
as compensation for personal service
for the exercise of which a prlvtlage
tax is imposed ln this State and the
gross receipts of the taxpayer derived
from trades, business, commerce on
sales and the value accruing or pro
ceeding from the sale of tangible pro
perty (| real or personal i or service or
both and all receipts, actUAl or ac
crued, by the investment of the capi
tal of the business engaged In, in
cluding interest, discount rentals,
royalties, fees or other emoluments
however designated and without any
ded uot ion on account of the property
sold, tha cost of materials used, labor
coots, Interest or discount paid, of pny
ether expense and without any deduc
tion on acoptint of •loss."
* ;' Will Hit Incomes.
Thus the act imposes not only a
sales tax but a two per cent Income
tax on all gross incomes, allowing
an exemption of only $1,200 from the
groes receipts of any taxpayer. The
only other exemptions permitted are
for insurance companies, building and
loan associations, state and national
banks; religious, charitable, scientific
and educational societies; amounts re-,
ceived from insurance policies and!
amounts received from the sale pf
cotton and cotton seed, and a few!
other minor exemptions.
Under a law of this sort the farm
ers would have to pay a two per cent,
sales tax on every dollar’s worth of
grain, hay, vegetables, milk, eggs,
livestock and even tobacco, unless to
bacco sales as well a m cotton and
cotton seed should be included in the
exemptions, it is pointed out. Thiq
tax must be paid on these sales even
if tbe selling price is less than th4
cost of production.

Thus, if a farmer spent $5,000 id

that, except for Mr. Hoover’s states

By turning General MacArthur and
his cohorts loose on the B. E. F., the
president not only made enemies sot
himself but he likewise unquestionably
insured the passage of legislation for
full bonus payment, to which" he vig

then, theic had been small prospect.
As most folk know, the American
Legion was on record against it.
Now it is a foregone conclusion that
the Legion will vote ln its favor at its
national convention. ,
The bulk of the public assuredly
was not pro-bonus when the march on
Washington, to demand it, began.
There was much sympathy with the
marchers, as unemployed working
men. Sentiment to the effect that
•they were entitled to demand jobs was
strong, but the popular judgment evi
dently was that immediate full pay
ment of the bonus was of more than
doubtful wiadom and besides, that the
comparatively trifling sum each man
would receive would not last him long.
The bonus boys themselves, arriving
In Washington, expressed surprise that
they had encountered so little enthu

They failed to take in6o account the
fact that the bonus slogan was with
out strong appeal to the average citi
