The consensus of Capitol Hill is en

Raleigh. Dec. 24. While stores are
crowded with the last-minute rush of
late shoppers and streets thronged
with people, the various State depart
ment buildings are closed and quiet,
to remain so until Tuesday morning
For State employe:; are getting the
longest Christmas vacation this year
they have had in many years, with
all day Saturday and Monday off. as 1
well as Sunday, which ia Christmas
day.
Governor O. Max Gardner, Mrs.
Gardner and their family are spend
ing Christmas ncre tn Raleigh in-,
stead of going to their home In 9hel- (
by. as they usualy do. One reason foi
this is that Governor Gardner and hi:
family will leave the Executive Man
sion January 5 for their home in
■Shelby and that they are so busy get
ting ready to leave that they cannot
afford the time. Governor Gardner tr
especially busy attempting to attend
to the thousands of details incident to
the closing of his adminisration, his
office and the mansion and turning
things over o incomting Governor J.
C. B. Ehringhaus on January 5.
Most of the major State officials
have their homes here and hence are
spending the Christmas recess here.
Most of them are also busy prepar
ing for the General Assembly, which
opens January 4, and are welcomingi
this brief breathing spell before the
legislative session opens.
Those State employes whose homes
are outside of Raleigh -and they are
many—are taking advantage of the
slightly longer vacation to speod
Christmas at their homes or with re
latives.
At least one of the “lame duck"
State officials —Frank D. Grist, com
missioner of labor, who goes out of
office January 5. —started his vaca
tion almost a week ago and some
doubt whether he will return before
he officially goes out of office.
