Raleigh, Feb. 6.-Signs of a move
ment to oust R. R. Lawrence from
the presidency of the State federation
of labor on the ground that he is
more interested in politics than in
the conduct of his office, are the
first published cvidiwce that. Mr.
Lawrence is again running for the
commissionshiip of labor which is now
(held by his successful ‘opponent of the
1932 race, Major A. L. Fletcher.
That isn’t the kick that the crafts
in their insurgency are making. The
commissionership is the natural of
fice for Mr. Lawrence, but the cri
ticism that is made of him most fre
quently is that he isn’t confining his
aspirations to the State office, that
ho is looking for any government
position that is 'available. And the
Green boro labor members who start
led the assault are not the first to
open on him.

interest officially in this quarrel but

R» B. Nichols Switches On
Amendments and Es
pouses Sales Tax
Daily Dispatch Bureau
In the Sir Walter Hotel
Raleigh, Feb. 6. — Wake county
has a novelty in politics, though by
no means a novice, in R. B. Nichols,
once member of the General Assem
bly, who desires to go back and he
announces a platform favoring the
sales tax.
Mr. Nichols is a. merchant. He has
been a member of 'the House, being
one of the three who represented the
county in 1919 and at th extra ses
sion of 1920. He was one of the sig
ners of the famous round robin a
gainst adoption of the nineteenth
amendment but voted for the 18th.
He has changed completely. He now
favors the 19th but voted to repeal
the 18th.
He will not, however, major in the
/repeal issue. He went with President
Roosevelt and Governor Ehringhaus
in their support of the national plat
form. It is that layalty which makes
(him embrace the more or less hateful
’sales tax. Mr. Nichols as a small
dealer sees the nuisance features
every day but he declares he can see
no otlhr way to make the State’s
buckle and tongue meet, so he comes
out for the sales tax against the
wishes of nearly all the merchants,
Lt is worthy of remark that some
•of the big ones do not object. Re
cently Charles T. Copeland, head of
the Charles stores, told Governor Eh
ringhaus that with all the thousands
his business has provided in sales
taxes the merchant finds small ob
jection to it and sees its good work
every day in the reduced number of
foreclasures and the relief from bur
densome property taxation. Mr.
’Nichols watches its workings on
small scale. He says he will not vote
to repeal if if he is chosen.
The only other person in the race
is Mrs. Stella Barbee, who was on

Raleigh, Feb. 6. —When President
Frank P. Gralham, -of the Univer
sity < f North Carolina, was here
nearly a week ago and made his
statement to the trustee® of the three
great State institutions now under
one head, he said something that
football fans of Raleigh, Chapel Hill
and everywhere else, have been think
ing about.
The president referred to football
as a “racket” The recent hiring of
Funk Anderson, Notre Dame coach
since the death of Rockne, and Carl
Snavely, of Bucknell, has been in
terpreted by many footballists to
mean that the two State institutions
are going'in for what is called “big
time football." And big time football
r lways means going out to get play
ers. And going out to get players
means going out to get ’em. These
players are to be found in North
Carolina, if possible, but in Illinois,
Ohio, Pennsylvania and everywhere
else. To the fans who want football
above everything else Dr. Graham
brought no good news.
It was not exactly what he said a
few days ago as how he has played
the academic game all along. The
fans won’t like it very much. As
head of the whole University if it
should turn out that State is going
too strong on “big time” football, the
head of the University undoubtedly
would make music to the whole body
The State students might not agree
with him, but most likely they would
and that would be bad. The Univer
sity hoys from Chapel Hill undoubt
edly would string with him and they
have the bulk of the vote. It is there
fore a somewhat disquieting situa
tion with a possible clash of interests
•among the alumni, some of whom
would wish a team that under any
and all conditions must trim Caro
lina, while Carolina trustees might
feci exactly the other way about it.
The ousting of Coach Chuck Col
lins from Carolina was the direct re
sult of alumni dissatisfaction. The old
students took two beatings from
Duke. It was hard for them to re
member the much worse treatment
that Collins had given to the nearest
Carolina rivals. Collins had beaten
