ABSENTballot in BASIC LAW ORGED Proposed New Constitution Also Includes Woman Suffrage Right (Note.—This la the sixth of a series of 12 articles enumerating the changes proposed In North Carolina's basic law by the con stitutional commission. It deals with alterations in Article VI on suffrage and eligihllty to office.) Raleigh. Dec. 5. (API -The absen tee ballot would be written into the North Carolina Constitution and it would be more rigidly restricted than it is now by legislative law. under i Article VI on suffrage and eligibility to office in the proposed revisal of the State’s basic law. Also woman suffrage would be writ-' ten into the State's Constitution. It is i not in the present document. North Carolina women voe by virtue of tho i fact equai suffrage is in th e consti , - tution of the United States. This amendment was never ratified by North Carolina Under the new Constitution, as pro posed by the constitutional commis sion, the absentee ballot’ would be lilted to persons "physically dis abled or absent from home in the ser vices of the State or the United State?'' as provided by the general us l sembly "under properly restrictive re gulations. ’ AH most anyone away from home on balloting day now can vote ab sentee. As for suffrage, the present con stitution says: "Who may vote. Every male person ....etc." The proposed new section starts off: 1 ‘‘Who-may vote. Ex'ery person .... etc.” , The absentee ballot proposal i.s tho major alteration in this article, but * many obsolete sections ha\*e,becn eli minated.

But his friends here regard the formation of this Reynolds organization with the avowed intent to "put over" the can didacies of Warlick for governor ami John Bright Hill for lieutenant gov ernor as decidedly detrimental to the candidacies of both. For the prevail ing opinion here is that the Demo crats of North Carolina are tired of being dictated to by political “ma chines". either actual or theoretical, and that they will revolt against any Reynolds "machine” just as they re volted against the purported Simmons and Morrison “machines." “The line of thought followed by those undertaking to set up this Rey ’nolds organization seems to be that on the basis of the large vote Rey nolds received both in the primary and the rlection, together with th~ Federal patrpnage he wjll be able to distribute as senator, that a strong organization can be built up in North Carolina.” one commentator with fcyw espeiience 4n Democratic po litics in the State said today. But toast history of movements of this kind indicates that the movement may not work out so well. If it had iint bgea uwoufita yut iatft ihe 9£ca j and the organization could have been formed without any attendant pub licity, it would have stood a much better chance to succeed. The chances now are that the movement is more likely td embari aAs Reynolds, War-* lick and Hill than help them." The fact that many of those who participated In the meeting in Char lotte are admtitedly seekers of Fed eral patronage and depending upon Reynolds to help them get Federal appointments, does not help the sit uation, It is agreed ftere. Twb para graphs in the story about the meet ing Saturday morning strongly In dicate that patronage was also dis 1 - cussed at the meeting. One of these paragraphs says: "The meeting, it was said, was call ed by R. Frank Holland Mecklenburg manager for Mr. Reynolds and gen erally understood to be the man in line for appointment as the next Charlotte postmaster." The other paragraph is as follows: "Various plans and political odds ends were discussed, it was said. Much was said of patronage but little was done about it. In the group, how ever. were many leading contenders for some of the choicer cuts of po litical pie.” As the result of the insight gix*en TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6 WILL BE THE On The Subscription Club Only One More Day To Work And Win A Prize You Can Do It If You Try— See All of Your Prospects At Once and Turn in Your Subscriptions on or Before the Last Day.

Raleigh, Dec. s.—Former Lieute nant Governor R. A. Doughton. of Sparta, Alleghany county, and Wal ter Murphy c* Salisbury. Rowan county, both former speakers of the House, are expected to become the most influential leaders in the House during the 1933 session, according to many of the old timers here who have been speculating on the forthcoming legislative session. It is generally conceded that there is not an abler parliamentarian in North Carolina than Murphy or a man more familiar with the State's pro blems. it is mlso pointed out that Mur phy possesses a rare faculty for say ing a great deal in a few words and for compelling attention when he speaks. Those who have observed him in past sessions of the General As sembly frankly regard him as the most able friend or most dangerous antagonist that can be had on any I legislation. He frequently sits and lis- PAGE THREE tens to hours of debate without say ing a word, then gels up and in a few words reviews the entire con troversy and announces his position on the question. Usually a majority votes with him. Many agree that whenever Murphy declares war upon any particular bill it is almost aa good as defeated. Doughton has not been in the Gen eral Assembly for a number of years and belongs to the older school of politics In the State. However, he haa been in close touch with the State for years, first as com missioner of revenue and lated a a chairman of the State Highway Com mission. so that he is entirely familiar with the operation of the State gov ernment and its needs. He is regard ed as constructive in his tendencies, although rather conservative, and as a powerful protagonist in debate. Be cause of his many years in the north western part of the State, Doughton Is familiar with the needs and problems of the farmers, while as the result of his experience as commissioner of re venue he is also familiar with the condition of business and industry In the State. As a result, it is expected that he will be able to legislate fairly for all concerned and to become a real leader in the House.
