Raleign, Oct. in'--The race for the
vacancy on the ijatienal Democratic
committee, caused* by the resignation
of former Governor O. Max Gardner,
continues to be the center of atten
tion in political circles both here and
ever the State generally. The three
mest bktiy candidates at the present
time, according to opinion in political
circles heve, are J. O. Carr, of Wil
mington; Julian Price, of Greensboro;
and Major L. P. McLendon, lately of
Durham but now also of Greensboro.
A good many think that former Gov
ernor-Senator Cameron Morrison, of
Charlotte, could have had the post if
he had desired it and had not re
moved himself as a candidate when
his former opponent. Senator Robert
R. Reynolds, suggested him for it.
While there is little doubt here but
that C. L. Shuping, of Greensboro,
would like very much to be elected
national committeeman, just as he
wanted to be chairman of the State
Democratic Executive Committee, the
prevailing belief is that his ambition
has been pretty well bottled up by
