Lobbied to Death to Detri
ment of Both Labor and
null?' Dlapntrk Rnrrna, '
In the Sir Walter Hotel.
Raleigh, May 6—The Dunagan bill
setting up a monopolistic State-ope
ned compensation insurance fund,
which has been pending in the Sen
gte for more than a mionth, has fin
ally been lobbied to death by the in
surance companies as was the case
♦wo years ago when a similar bill was
introduced in the- General Assembly.
The bill wa s modelled after a similar
plan now in operation in Ohio and
other states and its proponents claim
ed that it would have the industries
of the S'ate a half million dollars an
nually by giving them lower insur
ance rates through the elimination
of overhead and selling costs that are
now borne by the insurance com
But the insurance companies who
have been so restricting their poli
c ies that many employers in North
Carolina have been unable to obtain
unemployment insurance, put up a
hard fight. The Dunagan bill was
strongly supported by organized la
bor. and R. R. Lawrence, president
of the State Federation of Labor, re
cently predicted that if the legisla
ture failed to pass the Dunagan bill,
compensaton insurance rates in
Nnith Carolina would be boosted 25
percent. Within the past year sev
eral insurance companies have with-*
drawn from the North Carolina field,
and many employes have been unable
to collect compensation insurance.
The Dunagan bill was passed in
the Senate several weeks ago on sec
ond reading by a margin of one vote.
However, it failed to pass on third
reading by the same margin. Since
then a motion to reconsider the vote
by which the bill failed to pass third
reading ha s bee n pending, and yes
terday the motion was presented, and
defeatde by a vote of 26 to; 17. But
the vote was no surprise, not evento
Senator Dunagan the author of the
measure, who in speaking on the mo
tion, frankly admitted that he had
been unable to cope with the baby
faces and blue eyes the insurance in
surance interests have had on the
field lobbying ayinst the bill and
that he had no hope of the bill ever
passing the senate.

To Adjourn by Thursday

sub, it is believed that both these
major bills, as well as the other more
important hi Ms still before the as
sembly, can be acted upon by Friday
at the latest.
The three things that caused the
adoption of thfc Conference commit
tee report on the revenue bill by the
House, more than anything else, wre:
1. The realization that the compro
mise agreed to by the conference com
mittee was probably the only com
promise which the Senate would ac
cept and that nothing but delay would
re-ui!t from its rejection.
- The realization that a revenue
bill of some sort that would balance
'he budget and preserve the credit
of the State had to be adopted soon
er or later, and that this was the
only bill worked out in more than j
four months upon which both houses ]
WPre anywhere near agreement.
3. The desire of the members to get 1
through and get home ?o their own !
firesides and business and stop the
h -avy drain on their private funds,
since none of the members have re
ceived any pay from the State since
ea fly in March.
There were some other factors en
ering into the situation, of course,
® u ' i* is agreed that these three were
'he more weighty.
When i lie report of the conference
committee was first read to the House
Friday morning, it was not in a mmod

Barnes, of LUlinglton, president of
the conference committee whef re
fused to agree to the removal of the
kilowatt hour tax, of which he was
the author, or to the increase in the
sales tax rate from two to three per
cent. The contention of Ewing that
the power companies were still not
taxed much in proporation as were
almost all other classes, was support
ed by Representative Barden, of
Craven, and several others, who
maintained it was not just to put a
sales of three per cent on the
people and merchants of the State
and show special favor to the power
companies and other large corpora
The Senate conferees did accept the
House figures, increasing the tax on
moving picture theatres, all other
theatres, amusements and circuses.
This w;as almost the only concession
the Senate made to the House, in
sisting upon the removal of both the
Ewing wilowatt hour tax and the
Everett corporate excess tax, written
into the bilj.by the House.
But Representative Doughton, chair
man of the House Finance Committee
Representative Cherry, of Gaston, a
member of the confeience committee,
and others, maintained that while the
report was far from what they want
ed, it was the best that could be ob
tained as far as the Senate was con
cerned and urged its approval. So
when the House came back yesterday
afternoon at 3:30 to renew its con
sideration of the conference report, a
majority had made up their minds to
accept it, which they did by a vote
of 45 to 40- • f

that the Senate would refuse them
the right to permit local supplements
for an, extra month. ,
The truth of the matter is that these
senators from the larger centers of
population though they had the as
surance of the Senate that supple
ments for extended terms would be
permitted when they agreed *o sup
port an eight months State-supported
term. They attempted to have the
matter thrashed out at the time the
Senate was considering the eight
months school provision in the ap
propriations bill, but they were ad
vised by Senator A. D. Mac Lean, of
Beaufort, father of the eight months
school law, that this matter would
properly come up in the school ma
chinery bill, to be drawn by the Sen
ate Education Committee, of which
be is chairman.
These members of the Senate from
the larger cities took this to mean
that their cities would not be denied
the right to run a nine months term.
Nor did the Senate Education Com
mittee attempt to stop them, at first.
The Griffin bill reported out by the
•Senate committee, would have per
mitted extended term supplements by
a vote of the people in the special
charter districts, and did not place
any limit on these supplements. But
the Clement amendment was offered
after the bill got on the floor, and the
Senate adopted the amendment and

majority, the members of the educa

The meeting was opened by all sing
ing together songs. Mre. C. L. Finch
had charge of the program and also
led the devotionals, using the 13th
chapter of Ist Corinthians. Th e main
address was given by Mrs. Henry
Perry, her subject being “Recreation
and the potion Picture.” We feel
greatly indebted to Mrs. Perry for
this wonderful talk and we can but
hope that the thoughts brought to us
by her will cause us ail to think
carefully on the vital subject of us
ing Our leisure time—and especially
the menace of the present form of
pictures exhibited A committee com
posed of Mrs. C. L. Finch, Mrs. Ab
bott and Mrs. Whitmore, was appoint
ed to cooperate with other commit
tees in helping to bring cleaner pic
ture to our public. The secretary was
instructed to join this national fed
eration for the school.
The business was presided over by
the President, Mrs. J. M. Baity. The
secretary monthly was and approved,

The Salpiglossis or Painted Tongue,
one of the handsomest of annuals but
seldom grown is exactly suited by
late planting when the ground is
warm- Many gardeners have had
trouble with this plant because it
takes its own sweet time about com
ytg I up, waiting until temperature
suits it, and if the weather doesn’t
please it when it gets up, it stands
still until it does.
As it is an inconsequential plant
when it first appears, it is often de-
Strowed or given up in disgust. But
let it alone and when the hot days
come will start going and make up
for lost time and deck itself with
handsome trumpets of gorgeous color

There are gorgeous shades of pur
ple, maroon and mahogany as well as
ibrowns being one of the few annuals
showing this color, as well as pinks,
roses and whites and pale yellow. It
is just as well not to try to trans
plant sowing thinly where it is to re

inches apart. There are several im

are much superior to the older types
The Emperor and Gloxinia flowered
are of this type.

Under the leadership of our most
efficient president, Mrs. J. M. Baity
The teachers and numerous commit
tees we have had one of the most
successful years .in the /history of
Clark Street school. There has been a
most wonderful cooperative spirit be
tween teacher and parents, and we
feel that this has been the cause of
our successfulness,. I can readily say
that so far as I know, every task' set
before the association has been accom
plished .
We have had various ways of
ing money such as sale of candy,

only two or three plants to find it
coming up vigorously from self-sown
seed the second year. Perhaps the
surest way to grow it is in a row in
the vegetable garden where it flour

UR. WATSON returned to the
group that awaited him in the other
room. “You are all dismissed, ex
cept Anna,” he told them. “Mrs.
Parmely needs you to make her com
fortable for the night." he turned to
her, “and I shall leave some medicine
foi? her. I should like to speak with
Mr. Allber for a moment, also.”
Mrs. Henderson and Dr. Case took
their leave, silently curious at the
turn of events. Dr. Watson ex
plained the situation briefly to
Alber, and arranged for a message
to.be sent to Sue’s family, explain
ing that she could not be at horrfte
that night. Dr. Watson himself
wrote the message to Mr. Allard,
whom he had seen but once many
years before, and assumed the re
sponsibility for the safety of his
daughter. He suggested that the
Other man might visit him at his
offices on the following day, to ob
tain tull particulars.
That astonishing message, was like
a bomb in the Allard household. At
first. Pop insisted that Sue was in
danger somewhere and the message
was only a deception. But he could
not deny the facts it contained and
their proof that the letter had been
written by the only person in the
tiity who knew all the circumstances
of the case. So. he told the story
to Grace and Annabel which Sue had
heard from Dr. Watson while she
had held her long-lost grandmother
*■ lief arms. Grace was indignant
and sympathetic by turns, first for
l»«r mother, then her father, then the
unknown eccentric old grandmother.
Annabel thought it was the most
romantic and dramatic love story she
had heard.#And to think that
•he had been living a small part in
such a' drama fbr all her life!
She felt like a character In a
mythical legend, and! shivered with
the delightful misery of the whole
tragic episode. And just to think of
Rue being, the heroine of such a
drama! It was almost unbelievable.
First, Sue had been the beautiful
Cinderella going to the ball with the
handsome prince; then, she was the
helpless victim of a notorious vil
lain; now*, she was the long-lost
granddaughter and namesake of a
fiendish old crone—which was the
way Annabel visioned her unknown
relative—who held her a prisoner in
her castle. Lucky Sue!
Through the days which followed,
Sue moved about as one in a dream.
If Annabel marveled at the strange
events of the past month in which
she had been an important and in
voluntary actress, Sue herself
dered If all of it could polsibly be a
part of her hitherto tranquil life.
To experience one such disturbing
event, even, as meeting with Philip
Gerard as she had, was incredible
enough;, n But all the astonishing
things which had- followed had re
solved in bewilderment.
i'o think that her mother had been
engaged to marry Philip’s father who
was madly in love with her, and that
other Sue had renounced his love
and wealth and prominence—to
marry Pop. Os course, he was her
father, and she could understand that
a woman might love him like that,
and she never had seen Philip’s
father. But a parallel condition of
herself and Philip she could not con

the play “Uncle Henry’s Wedding”
which proved the most successful of
our projects, we have mode $236.27
this year and have had expenditures
to the amount of $202 79. This money
has been spent for good causes.
We have indeed been fortunate in
having such interesting and instruc
tive programs, splendid addresses,
music and pfrograms by the different
grades of the school; Special mention
is made o fthe playette put on by the
sixth grade. The music in the school
has been unusually good.
The grounds have been worked on
new shrubs and plants put out and
other things to help beautify.
Pre-school clinic was held rid by
the examination of 23 children at this
time it -will prove very beneficial to
the children entering next fall.
The attendance at the monthly
meetings have been unusually good
and interest has been manifested in
each undertaking, Grade mothers
have remembered grades from time
to time by small gifts and cooperat
ed splendidly with teacher and pupil.
Welfare work has been a special
activity of the association during the
year. Twenty six lunches and milk
for 26 children have been furnished
daily. Several individuals and organ
izations have donated generously to
this cause, which we greatly appre
ciate. The Red Cross fund which was
given this year has helped in various

that she drive and not go too far

Sue as a miraculous discovery who
would bring back the life which haa
been lost to her* She began to treat’
her as she might hfuve, had they not

time. At first, her' conversation had
been only bitter incriminations
against herself and deep grief for the
past. , ! ' v
“I even changed my own name,
when she named you for me,” she
confessed brokenly. “And how I de
spised to have anyone call me
’Mabel’. It was like having a finger
of accusation pointed at me. Yes,- I
had it made legal, and never ' again
answered to the name of Sue, in
speech or writing. That is how crijfel
I can be, Sue. I know how you
must hate me!"
“But I don’t .. hate you—grand
mother. Please—if you will otily get
well again so I can get better ac
quainted with you and know what
I do think. It is all so bewildering
to me, yet, I think I can under
stand you a little. You are a per
son who does everything thoroughly
—even hating people. But ybu didn’t
hate my mother—she just broke your
heart a.nd you never quite realized
what you were doing after that.”
“But I was wrong, Sue. She had
a right to her own life, and I could
have helped ’to make it ’ so much
happier for her.” t * 5
“Yes, you were wrong. But there
is so much wrong in the world that
is not necessary if only people would
realize it before it is too late. Per

way to rconcile you both, had < you

think you have suffered enough for
it. I know now that mother did,
also, but I never knew what ugly

nature. I always suspected when I

secret sorrow inside her. I know
now why Pop haa always talked so
bitterly against wealthy people.

in being given this. The wlfaye work
for the year has been estimated at
