Raleigh, Oct. .2 The membership
of the Young Democratic Clubs of
Amedca is .now approximately
150,00 in In 3.700 clubs in 42 states
and the District of Columbia. Tyre
Taylor, president of the national or
ganization, announced here today.
The original goal of 1,000,000 members
was passed last week, reports re
ceived at national headquarters here
show and a new goal of 1,500000 mem
bers by November 8 has been set. In
cluded in the 3,700 individual Young
Democratic clubs are 350 clubs in col
leges and universities scattered all
tlje way from the Atlantic to tlfe Pa
cific and from Massachusetts to
Florida, Mr. Taylor said.
"The Young Democratic movement
is gaining in impetus in every sec
tion of the United States,” Mr. Tay
lor said. "Only two weeks were re
suired to organize clube in every
county in Nebraska. Many other mid
dle western states, including Illinois,
Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana,
Missouri, Oklahoma, and lowa are
reporting rapid progress.
"The membership of the Illinois
Young Democratic Clubs now ex
ceeds 225,000 with the largest mem
bership of any state although New
York is a close second wih its 650
clubs. A great deal of activity is re
ported in every southern state but
one, In the Rocky Mountain states and
on the Pacific coast. The California
Young Democrats conducted a survey
of those who have just come of vot
ing age since the last election and
found that only two out of each 100
were registered. As a result, they
started an intensive Campaign to get
these on the names of these voters on
the poll books and for a while were
registering niew. voters at the rate of
a day."
North Carolina Is now running neck

HY J. r RASKKHVIU,
Raleigh. Oct. 12. Leßoy Martin,
executive secretary of the State Board
of Equalization, nas no comment to
make today on the action of the
Charlotte board of education which
Monday defied the action of the Board
of Equalization by refusing to reduce
the city extended term budget $40.-
248 as it had been directed to by the
equalization board. The board adopt
ed the original budget amounting to
approximately $347,000- which provid
ed for the supplementtation of sal
aries and other objects amounting to
about 37 per cent. The board of equa
lization allowed ail of the 57 addi

that no salaries should be supplement

$40,248 from the budget requested.
It is pointed out here, however, that
the school board does not levy any
taxes, but that the city council is the
tax levying body, and that it remains
to be seem whether the Charlotte City
Council will levy the tax needed to
supply the funds for the larger bud

council levies a tax rate higher than
