Their courses in 1933, a year in which there will be no campaigns, primaries and elections, stand out as the two big political questions the hext 12 months may answer. Republicans Routed. The most outstanding political de velopment in the State in 1932 was the Democratic party’s complete rout of the Republicans. Four years ago, the • Republicans saw signs of strength. They flung North Carolina into the Republican column nationally, captured a good sizeid bloc in the legislature and gen erally disturbed the Democrats, who had things their way for years. But 1932 was a sad year for them. With the national collapse of the party, they hopelessly lost North Car olina. Democratic majorities in the State, approachingthe 400,000 mark, were records. The Democrats won everything with the exception of a Tew county offices and eight of the 170 seats in the General Assembly. Riding at .the helm of the parade were Reynolds and Ehringhaus, whom two heated Democratic pri maries threw together—this quiet, se : rious-minded man from the east and ! the cavorting “Buncombe Bob” from the west. Hope for Cabinet Place. The national l ight-about-face to the Democratic cause, gave the State hope of a greater share in the national pic ture. North Carolina won a cabinet post in the last Democratic regime. Josephus Daniels, the Raleigh editor who served as j secretary of navy in the Wilson cabinet, was President- Elect Roosevelt’s boss when the New Yorker was assistant secretary. Governor O. Max Gardner, who has been a power in Democratic circles in this State almost since he left col lege, has been mentioned as cabinet timber. The governor, however, has kept his council and his immediate plans steer him toward Shelby, his home, upon retiring. What Gardner’s future place in the picture be presents another question time must 'answer. Morrison Eliminated. Whitten across the year 1932 was defeat for one of the State’s Veteran Democratic war horses Cahteron Morrison of Charlotte. Former governor, “father of’ good roads” in the State, a forceful orator and the senator in appearance, Mor rison was unceremoniously booted from his seat in the United States Senate by Reynolds, who got out an old automobile and blaed a trail across the State campaigning as an anti-proliibitionist. Morrison remained a *dry despite the dampness of the national Demo cratic platform. He had been serving as senator since 1930 when [i trover nor Gardner, whom Morrison, had .defeated in the 1920 primary for’'gover nor, nuqied’j.-hifn "to fill', the-uriekpired term ,of the late Senator Overman. Morrison did little for the first senatorial primary in which he had four opponents. He trailed Reynolds by a few thousand votes. ; In the second race, however, the white-haired Charlotte man who "loved” the people and thought they “loved” him, took off his coat and went to battle. He fell, overwhelming ly defeated. Reynolds’ majority of 100,000 votes was the greatest ever given a Democrat in a primary in this State. Gardner an Issue. The administration of Governor Gardner was the issue in the two Democratic gubernatorial primaries. Gardner supported Ehringhaus, who failed to gain a majority over Com missioner of Revenue A. J. Maxwell and Lieutenant Governor R. T. Foun tain in the first race. Maxwell, who was eliminated, with drew to watch the second heat be tween Ehringhaus and Fountain. The battle was fierce. Wild words fell. Fountain almost came to blows with Highway Chairman E. B. Jeffress, who, as a part of the Gardner admin istration, supported Ehringhaus. Fountain fought hard, the voting broke primary records, but he lost by a few thousand votes. Harmony Is Restored. Although there was undoubtedly some disappointment over the out come of the Democratic primaries— I both for the gubernatorial and sena torial nominations —harmony reigned in Democratic ranks by the time the November* elections rolled along. Morrison took the stump for the party and Reynolds. Fountain became ill, but his wife introduced Ehring haus to a Rocky Mount political rally. Jake Newell, of Charlotte, Republi can candidate for Senate, took ad vantage of Reynolds’ stand against prohibition and fought the Asheville man on this issue. That he swung some dry Democratic votes his way was evident in the returns.

With Legislature Open, Interest Centers Upon Committee Appointments (Continued from Page One.) committees have a bigger job than ever before them. Rankin on Finance. Most of the Speculation so far heard here points to Senator R. §rrady Ran kin, of Gastonia, as bein’g the most likely choice ,of Lieutenant Governor Graham as .chairman .of the Senate finance comhaittee. Some believe that Senator Hayden Clement, of Salis bury, is also‘being,considered for this post and that he is more likely to get it than Rankin. But most of the sen ■■ '• ••• /••••,....

Scoggin Chevrolet Co. Henderson, N. C. Warrenton, N. C. -ij * * * a •* -sW 9 »• V timent here is that Rankin undoubt edly has the inside rtack. One reason for this belief is that Rankin ahd Graham have been close - personal friends for years, that they have served together on the- State Advisory Budget Commission for the past two years, and because of Rankin’s long experience on the Senate finance Committee in 1931, when the assembly remained • session almost, five months .trying to; “fiVi&, Ithe frioney where the . money- is.” : , I Mac Lean’s Name Heard. There is -still. the possibility, of course taat . Lieutenant Governor Graham may decide to do the unex pected and appoint Senator A. D. Mac Lean, of “Mac Lean Law” fame, as chairman of the’ finance committee and let him. .“get the money where the money Ijs”—or isn’t. But this move is. regarded as being little more than a possibility and not within the realm of probability. For in spite of Mac Lean’s frequent claims that she necessary revenue for operating the State can be found if the General As sembly will only try to “get the money where the money is,” he is not regarded as being particularly well fitted to head the finance com mittee. It is believed likely, however, That both Clement and Mac Lean will "-be named as members of the finance committee, even though Rankin mdy be appoined chairman. Appropriations Set-Up. The next most,Jmfc>ortant commit tee is regarded as' being the approp riations committee, charged with mak ing up the State budget. Some think that “if Senator Rankin is named .chairman of the finance Committee that Senator Clement will be given the chairmanship of the appropriations, committee. But because of the tracii- ■ • ■ • i tion that if the chairman of one" of these committees, is from the Pied mont or west, The* chairman of the other must come from the east, most of the opinion is that the appropria tions post will go to an eastern sen ator. Among those mentioned for this post are Senator T. W. M. Long, of Roanoke Rapids, and Senator Paul D. Grady, of Kenly. It is reported that Senator T. L. Kirkpatrick,* of Charlotte, wjould like to get the chair mahsluji -of this committee, bqt iridi cations are htat hfe is 1 not being, se riously considered for it. Waynick on Education. Another important committee is that on education, and indications are that it will be even more impor tant than ever because of the efforts almost sure to be made to further reduce teachers’ salaries and effect additional economies in the adminos tration of the public schools. The school forces are almost sure'to urge Senator- Mac Lean for the chairman ship of this committee, since he was chairman of the education commit tee in the House both in 1931 and 1929. Indications are pointing strong ly to Senator C. M. Waynick, of High Point, as. chairman of the Senate edu cation committee this time, however. There has been some mention of Senator L. M. Blue, of Scotland coun ty, in connection with this chairman ship Though the bulk of opinion seems to favor Waynick for this chairman ship. Another important committee is that on public roads, especially in view of the efforts that- are sure, to be made to. divert, from $1,000,000 •to $2,000,000 of the State highway funds to other, purposes than roads. Sena tor John Sprunt Hill, of Durham, for years a member of the old State High way Commission, is being mentioned as a possibility for chairman of this committee, especially since Hill comes from* .’the neighboring! 1 county to that of- Lieutenant Governor * Graham. Qiiite a number of'others,* however, thiiik that: Senator Cfenien’t' is -more likeiy to get the chairmanship of-this committee, • especially iif he does not get the chairmanship, of < the. finande committee.; , . i It ;is more or less agreed that Sen a^df'Robert M. Hanes, • of Winston- Salem,' president of the Wachovia Bank and Trust Company system' and past president "of the Ndrth Carolina Bankers’ Association, will be named chairnian of: the committee on" banks and banking. ' Murphy-Is Prospect. •* In'the House,' indications are point ing strongly to Walter Murphy, of Salisbury, as first choice for chair man of the finance committee as to first choice, and R. Gregg Cherry, of Gastonia, as second choice. But the odds strongly favor Murphy. • For chairman of the appropriations com mittee, O. B.
