SEES BIG POULTRY
INCREASE IN 1933 Chickens One Farm Crop That Has Provided Steady Cash Income Daily Dlapalch Unreal, In tfce Sir Walter Hotel. ItV J. C. BASKESRVILL. Raleigh. Jan. 2.—Because poultry is one farm enterprise which has fur nished a market for home grown feeds and has returned the owners some cash regularily during the past year, Roy S. Dearstyne, head of the State College poultry department, foresees a decided shift towards an increase in the flocks of North Caro lina during the coming year. Mr. Dearstyne says records kept by a number of flock owners in 1932 have shown a net profit above feed costs of over $1 a hen for the year. This means if a man had a flock of 500 birds on his farm last year, he secured at least SSOO in clear money above the cost of the feed. In some cases those who sold high grade hat ching eggs from blood-tested flocks made still more money. Others who had spring broilers in season made additional money from this project. The poultry expert points out also that it costs very little to go into the poultry business. The clerk with a few dollars who bought a farm this past, fall thinks about poultry as one of his first enterprises. So do the oth er city dwellers who are moving back into the country to escape the hard times of the city and town. To all of these, Mr. Dearstyne cau tions that sometimes such new de velopment is out of proportion to the needs of the local market. He also adds that poultry production of the present day is ma father highly de veloped enterprise and those with lack of knowledge or experience are likely to fail. “Poultry work has no place for the person who knows nothing about the birds nor cares about the,” he says. “To be successful requires long hours of work and study; attention to de tail; ability to accept disappointments and a knowledge of feeding,,, sanita tion and marketing. It is not a get rich-quick enterprise.” Appointees Made By Gardner Give Him Gold Watch Daily Dispatch Korean, In the SV Walter Hotel. MY J. C. nVSIi.KUVJJLn. v Raleigh.

Amid the howls of laughter there are a few heart throbs, too, for a bit of mother love, a sacrifice, and a very tense little dramatic situation are interlarded among the laughs.

So in cluding the removal of the 15 cents ‘ax, the State will need to find $9,- >50,000 in new revenue to balance the budget on the basis of present ex >enditures. * But the four recommendations made by the Tax Commission will jffest this need of $9, 50,000 in new revenue by bringing about savings imounting to $10,350,000, as follows: saving from additional salary cuts $3,000,00 Appropriation from High way Fund 2,000,000 saving from refunding indebtedness 1,500,000 N’ew revenue from “re placement taxes’’ . 3,850,000 $10,350,000 The approval of this program by the 1933 General Assembly and the enact uent of the necessary legislation to make it effective would not only bal ince the budget, but also provide for i slight operating surplus, the report points out, and still would not levy my mote taxes than are being levied at the present time. It would entail, however, the increasing of some pre sent brackets, which is contemplated under the “replacement taxes” to com pensate for the removal of the 15 cents property tax. In commenting on the four recom mendations made, the report says: “The above recommendations, adopt cd in their entirelty would, even un der the present low level of economic conditions and of revenue yield, in sure a balanced budget and a reason able surplus in the operating account The commission has no misgivings as to the fact that those recommenda tions will not meet with the complete HENDERSON, (N.

From one viewpoint the reduction recommend ed in expenditures seem entirely too large. From another viewpoint the replacement taxes seem too heavy. From another viewpoint, the diversion of any amount of the highway fund seems unwise and undesirable. From another viewpoint the refunding of bond maturities seems impractical. ‘“The reduction recommended in general fund expenditures will call for heroic action on the part both of the General Assembly and of the de partments, institutions and spending agencies. It represents a reduction of about 13 per cent under the present levels of expenditure. We know of no substitute for this. “The recommendation to divert or appropriate $2,000,000 from the high way fund to the general fund we do not consider to be a sound permanent policy; it is not recommended as a permanent policy but only as an emergency measure to meet the exi gencies of the present situation.” The plan to refund a portion of the State’s indebtedness falling due in 1933-34 and 1934-35 and thus savev the State approximately SISOOOOO a year on the amount due for debt service, is entirely practical, the report says, and for the following reasons: “First, with the operating budget balanced and an actual operating sur plus, there should be no difficulty in selling at a reasonable rate of interest $2,888,000 worth of refunding bonds. “Second these bonds may be sche dule to mature in the years 1940, 1943 to 1945. It so happens that the State general fund maturities amount to only $50,000 a year in each of these five years.” Th£ report of the Tax Commission takes up many other matters of les ser importance in considerable detail.

The men are W. T. Deans, Frank Miller and B. F. Markham. Alarm over their safety was height ened by a wind of almost gale pro portions swept Albemarle Sound Sat urday night. - Friday afternoon the trio left in a fishing boat, leaving word they would i eturn here about Saturday noonj. When they failed to appear, a wide spread search was begun. Several boats were sent to the scene and another joined the search today. A searching party found the trio’s camp on the mouth of the Pasquotank river deserted Sunday. The party also found a group of duck hunters, who reported seeing the fishermen Saturday afternoon. Since that time no word of their lo cation has. reached here. FARM RELIEF BILL TO BE OFFERED IN HOUSE TOMORROW (Continued from Page One.* hogs from the big bill. It also re-, fused to include dairy products and rice. A newly devised emergency relief plan • designed to guarantee the far med his pre-war purchasing power, despite price fluctuating, was the bill chosen by Democratic leaders today for aiding agriculture. For the second time members of the House Agriculture Committee gathered behind closed doors to study its provisions. A favorable report to the House was predicted by Chairman Jones not later than Wednesday. Carefully prepared by membbers during the holidays, the bill would fix a ‘‘fair exxchange value” for four major farm commodities —wheat, cot ton, tobacco and hogs. It defines this value as the amount which in relation to the prices the farmer pays for com modities hte consumes will represent the same ratio that existed in pre-war dayh. The secretary of agriculture would proclaim “a fair exchange allowance.” This would-be “the difference between the “fair exxchange value” and the price actually received at local mar kets. i An adjustment charge equal to the “fair exchange allowance” then would be levied on “the first domestic pro cessing,” and every producer would be entitled to an adjustment certi ficates on his share of the estimated domestic consumption. To obtain this certificate —which would have the same unit value as the adjustment tax, or “fair exchange allowance” —the farmer would have to agree to a 20 percent acreage re duction, or, in the case of hogs, to a 20 percent tonnage cut, and a limit of 210 pounds on the average hog’s lot weight. TAX COMMISSION’S PLAN FACES ROUGH ROAD IN ASSEMBLY (Continued from Page One.) a graduated cut in general fund ex 1 penditures. including all State sal aries, to yield a saving of $3,000,000 a year. The plan sounds good on paper. But it will immediately meet with opposition fn>m the .most power ful lobby in the General Assembly, the school teachers’ lobby, with its 23,000 teachers, the powerful North Carolina Education Association, thou sands of parent teacher associations and others in sympathy with the teachers. It is no secret here that the teacher/3 and schools would have to bear a large share of this $3,000,000 reduction and that a mere 10 per cent cut in teachers’ salaries would yield $1,300,000 of the required amount, So far the teachers have been cut only 10 per cent, while the salaries of all other State employes have been re duced from 20 to 40 per cent during the past two years But the school teachers’ lobby would not be the only one that will fight this plan. The major State edu cational institutions, led by the Uni versity of North Carolina, State Col lege, the Woman’s College and all the other colleges in the State, their fa culties and alumni, will fight against any further curtailment in the funds for the upkeep of these institutions. And the alumni, who chop off the heads of football coaches who do not please them with, so .much ease and gusto, are to be reckoned with in po litics as well. They can bring a lot of pressure to bear upon a General As sembly. tl has been agreed by those who really know that for years both houses of the General Assembly have been virtually controlled by alumni df the State University and that as a re slult the University has usually got ten just about whatever it wanted. The other State departments and institutions, however, also have wide spread political connections and or ganizations. capable of bringing very strong pressure to bear upon a Gen eral Assembly. This was demonstra ted in 1931 when the anti-short ballot forces, led by the elective department heads, got together and decided to “buck” Governor Gardner and his re organization program. This anti-short ballot group,, led by Attorney General Snapographs I BWH Back to private v life—Andrew W.

Mine owners fear a .repetition of the Neiw Straitsville fire which has de stroyed $50,000,000 in coal. — v m Largest .Theatre Opens—Here is ‘ a view of the huge auditorium of, the new' Radio City music hall, New York, which drew a,distinguished first night audience at its gran dopening. The theatre is the first of the $250,00.0,000 Rockefeler group .to be competed in heart of New York. Dennis G. Brummitt, Chairman W. T. Lee of the Corporation Commission, Commissioner of Agriculture W. A. Graham, with the assistance of the other elective officers and their or ganizations, made things uncomfort ably warm for the administrations forces and threw plenty of brick bats into the administration program. There is no doubt that they will do the same thing again if any one tries or threatens to amputate any of their funds. These department heads are all past masters in the game of practical politics and their organizations are well manned with practical politicians who can be used as shock troops in any emergency. The general assembly rarely has been able to resist their massed attack. Then there is the proposal to ap propriate $2,000,000 a year from the highway fund for a period of two years. This plan, of course, will have the support and approval of the school forces and of many of the Sfate de partments and institutions, who see in it a chance to get larger approp riations. But it will have the united opposition of the State Highway Com mission, with its 5,000 employes, of the road materials and road ma chinery people, who always maintain a powerful lobby here. The organized motorists of the State will undoubted ly also be opposed to this plan, as will he truck and bus interests who also have effective lobbyests who know how to get results. So that plan will have hard sledding. When the various proposals are analyzed, indications are that they will have hard sledding in the Gen eral Assembly.

It is sound business sense to pay off as little as possible when the present value of the dollar 'is extremely "’high.'I’' 1 ’' 4. No new taxes, but increases in many present schedules to absorb the loss in revenue from removal of the 15 cent ad valorem tax on property which the commission said the legis lature was pledged to accomplish. “The program proposed would not levy any more taxes t.han are levied at the present time,” said the re port, signed by Chairman A. J. Max well, and L. A. Bethune of Clinton, and Robert Lassiter of Charlotte, i “It would absorb the prospective deficit by reduced spending in both general and the highway fund, by refunding general fund bonds matur ing within the next two years, and by shifting the present yield of the 15 cents property tax to other, meth ods of collecting the same amount of revenue an din collecting a large part of it in other forms from, the same groups who now pay it.” The report, offering increased rates in present schedules as a substitute for a sales tax to raise $3,820,000 a year the 15 cent ad valorem has been producing, declared: “In the opinion of the commission it is now just as ,unsound, unfair, and unwise to adopt this 1 form of tax (the sales tax) as one of the State’s major sources of revenue as it was at the time the report of the commission to the 1931 general assembly was writ ten.” Reference is made to the 1931 re port’s arguments against either “a general or so-called luxury sales tax.” “With a revenue system adequate under normal conditions for our ac tual necessities, we should go po fur ther into the sales tax field than the necessities •; of our.dmm’ediate: condi tion may temporarily compel us,” report added. .

The commission pointed ".out its four-point program for balancing the budget recognied present conditions as “temporary.” c * • •• With the 15 cent tax, the operating deficit for 1931-32 approximately 4,- 320,000 and this year’s deficit proba bly will reach $5,800,000, the : report said.
