Representatives of the “intrusts” sized him up and decided that he was potentially formidable enough to he worth exterminating politically of course. The method they Adopted was ex ceedingly simple. Explaining to the senator that fin anciers, merchant princes, captains r>< industry and big business men gen erally were deeply interested in his economic ideas, they proceeded to inundate his office with invitations to attend gatherings of these gentry (banquets especially) to expound his vir ws to them fully. Ssunpectolng nothing sinister, the senator accepted as many of these in-> vttations as possible, and shortly* fpund himself advertised as “speaker Os the occasion” *t more assemblages of the beneficiaries of orlvilegc than aWy other man in the country. Johnson unquestionably was sin rarely trying to enlighten the nation's money kings. Unfortunately his home folk re-', cetved a wrong impression. At the 1924 election much was made throughout Minnesota of the charge thkt the senator had gone over bodily to the side of America’s “malefactors of great wealth"—as evidenced by his presence at dozens and scores of their "confabs" and When the votes wera counted, it pioVeH that he Was beaten by Thomas D.

The tags w illbe on sale that day all over the State Miss Nell Jordan, who has been in charge of the local office for - a number of years, is manager again this year, and the office will be locat ed in the Clements Motor Company quarters on YVyche street, as for sev eral previous years. The office will open on December 15 and remain open for a month, or until January 15. here is no change in prices this yea l though various types of cars arc segregated so far as num bers and designations are shown, it is stated. This is a diversion made in the interest of helping highway po licemen and other [aw officers in de termining the weight of cars and whether the proper tag has been pur chased and placed on the automobile. The Henderson office, never open more than for a restricted period, has usually sold a large number of li cense nlates. This office serves a large territory in thrs section of the State, with motor car owners coming here from many places to obtain li cense- for operating their car dur ing the yfar. Licenses and plates have already been received here in large quantities and everything will be in readiness for sales when the office opens for business next Thursday, it was said today. Since the State law requires thatU cars not be operated after Jan uary 1 without 1933 licenses, car own ers are urged to call promptly and purchase their new tags. HOSPITAL CHARITY NOT ALL PAID FOR Cost Far Above $1 Per Day Allowed By Duke Foundation Funds Dr. H. A. Newell, a member of the staff of Maria Parham hospital, stat ed today, that although the local hos pital is affiliated with the Duke Foundation, the foundation pays only a part of the actual expense incurred by rendering hospital aid to charity patients. Dr. Newell said the actual cost per lay for one patient at the local hos pital is 51.30. Os this amount the Duke Foundation pays only one dollar. This leaves a total of 53.30 to be paid by the hospital itself, if other arrange ments are not made. The hospital is purely a community Institution, it was explained, operat ing under a board of directors select d out of the community. The ori ginal builders and owners are not al lowed to make a profit in the opera tion of the institution. All profits go « pay th-> expense of giving medical ; id to charity patemts.

CUTTING ROADSIDE TREES A VIOLATION Department Warns of Law As To Taking Greens Near Highways t>nl)r Olapitrk linr**a, la Ikr Sir \Vniii>r lintel. RV J. t\ IIASKKnVII.L. Raleigh. Dec. 12.—Indiscriminate cutting of trees and gathering of Christmas greenery or other wild ve getation from the roadside, is a viola tion of the State law designed to pre serve the beauties of the highways Os North Carolina, the Department of Conservation and Development warn ed today. Section 1, Chapter 54. Public Laws of the special session of the General Assembly of 1924, the department points out, prohibits damage, injury, or spoliation tot or upon any tree, wood underwood, timber, garden, crops* vegetables, plants, Tan&, springs or any other matter or thing growing or being thereon" within one hundred yards of any State highway or public road without the consent of tho owner. The act was cited further as maki i ing it a misdemeanor to cut, break,- injure or remove any tree, plant on flower or to deposit any trash, debris garbage, or litter within such limits.* Conviction of violation of the statute i subjects the offender to a fine of up to SSO or imprisonment for as much as« 30 days. j Observance of the law is particular ly urged upon the gathers of Christ- f mas decorations. Wheiever gathering I of greens is done legally, the cunser-j vation department requests that this’ be done Judiciously in order to con serve the supply for future use. Advice as to the manner to cut Christmas decorations is offered by State Forester J. S. Holmes to any tWklhg Vequest for such information Mr. Holmes also suggests that the public patronize those offering Christ mas greens for sale who have cut conservatively. He also warns of the waste of cutting more greens than can be used or than the market will absorb. Holly and other Christmas greens offer a permanent source of supple mentary income for the farmer, if handled as a crop by harvesting in such a manner as will insure a con tinuous yield. SMALL! DECLINE IN STATE COTTON! Decrease Less In North Car olina Than South; Less Fertilizer 1)1)1))’ ni.simtcti flurenn. In the Sir Wnllrr Hotel. nr j. c. hash Kit Vi li, . Raleigh. Dec. 12. The North Caro lina cotton crop for this year remains at 610.000 bales, according to the De cember report issued today by the State-Federal Crop Reporting Service of the State Department of Agricul ture. This is 15 per cent less tjjah last year’s crop of 756,000 balrs and 75 per ct nt less than the 1931 crop of 775.G00 bales, the report shows. While the en tire American cotton crop is about 20 per cent less than last year’s, the yeild per acre of lint in this State is about 18 per cent less than last year, with an estimated yield of 223 pounds to the acre. Ginnins to December 1 in this State amounted to 615,000 bales, justifying an increase in the forecast in comparison with the pre vious report. The North Carolina cotton crop this year has been consistently under-es timated, the report states, one reason for this being the unusual weather conditions, and their effect upon boll weevil infestation. Because of the mild weather last winter, conditions were right for a heavy weevil infes tation this year and for a relatively low crop forecast. The very- dry weather conditions in July. August and early September, however, not only held the weevils in check in most of the cotton counties but actually eliminated them in some. This was especially true in a strip extending from Pitt county through to Robeson county. Another unusual feature of the cot- in this State this year is that an unusually small amount of commercial fertilizer was used, the report points out. The result is that many farmers are now not so sure that heavy' fertilization is needed for cotton production, although the dry weather may have had something to do with this. While most of the cotton had been picked and ginned up to December 1, there is still a small percentage of fields with considerable lint in them, .'till to be pleked. The abandonment of cotton acreage since July 1 has been insignificant, the report states. Rum Boat’s Crew Arrested as One Drowns in Flight Norfolk.

Instead they want to be free to cooperate in find ing jhe be-t solutions possible to the problems they are going to have to deal with." The biggest problem, it is agreed, is going to be to write a revenue bill that will provide sufficient revenue with which to carry on even the most essential State activities. The various departments and institutions, includ ing the public schools, have already asked the Advisory Budget Commis sion to approve requests amounting to almost, $29,000,000 a year for the next two years, or approximately the samfe ahiounts appropriated for them by the 1931 General Assembly. The re venue for the past two years, how ever, has been only about $22,000,000 a year including the $4,000,000 re ceived from the 15 cents property tax. It is expended that the Budget Com mission will shave these requests dbwn to between $22,000,000 and $24,- 000.000 a year or even Less. AnothteP problem in connection with the writing of the new revenue bill is gbing to be the removal of the 15 cents Statewidfe property tax and the fihding of a. new source of revenue to take its place. For it is generally con ! ceded that a majority of the members : of both houses of the General Assem- I bly are committed to the removal or this 18 cents tax. The result isitnat ; they must find at least $4,000,000 a year in additional revenue to take its place. Present indications are that the < assembly will seek to enact a general j sales tax to provide this amount am whatever additional revenue may be j. ■* ** J The Last Mite! ~~ " '—• 1 .‘ . found necessary. Interwoven with the problem of l finding enough revenue to keep most necessary functions in operation, is the problem of the public schooLs, now the most expensive of all the State’s various activities. At the present time moie than 517.000.000 a year of the tola' general fund tevenue of about $22,000,000 is going for the mainten ance of the public schools, with a total of more than $13,000,000 a year going to the payment of teachers’ sal aries alone. This forthcoming Gen eral Assembly must decide whether the schools are to continue to be ± preferred activity, as at present, with a legislative prohibition against the reduction of school salaries or wheth er the schools as well as the other State activities must absorb their share in the reduction of governmen tal costs. Then there is the question of what, is to be done with the State's accumu laed defici tof approximately $12,000- 000, although it is generally agreed f CROSS WORD PUZZLE ] r 2. 13 lA.

But here will be much debate over this and many different plans will be suggested. It is also expected that a large num bet of the newer members of the Gen eral Assembly win come here with the belief that aonther salary cut for all State employes is all that will be need ed to balance the budget and that many bills along this line will be in troduced. But after they get here, they will find that if they would abolish all state salaries, with the exception of school teachers’ salaries, they would reduce the total State budget less than five per cent and hence scarcely make a dent in it. There will be others who will want to abolish many of the State depart ments and divisions, but will find this a difficult path toward decreasing op erating costs.
