Raleigh, April 19- The forces advo
cating more money for the public
schools an dmore adequate salaries
for teachers had better follow the ex
ample already set by Charlotte and :
Burlington, where elections have al
ready been called to vote on local |
supplemental taxes for the support of
the schools, rather than State appro
priations for schools, according to a
growing belief in political circles here.

probable deficit in the general fund
of from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 at the'
end of this fiscal year, in spite of
dramatic cuts made in the expendi- |
tures of every State department and
agency, with the exception of the pub
lic schools, ther is not much hope
that the next General Assembly will
be able to find any new sources of
revenue with which to increase the
appropriation for schools.
Yet the main refrain in most of the
speeches before the State Parent-
Teacher Congress, which . closed in
Durham yesterday, was “the Stato
must provide more money for the
schools and to pay the teachers high
er salaries,” while virtually nothing
was said about the local communi

Washington, April *l9 (AP) —
Bishop James Cannon, Jr., testi
fied today to a District of Colum
bia jury in an effort to prove that
he is innocent of a charge of con
spiracy to violate the Federal cor
rupt practices act in connection
with his 1928 efforts to defeat Al

Earlier the trial had been en
livened by a statement from Just

Southern Methodist churchman,
was attempting a speech out of

Washington, April 19.—(AP)—A wit

Richmond that “I’ll go to jail before

money was given in the 1928 anti-

Three Leaders Make State
ment to Convention Held
At Charleston
Charleston, S. C., April 19 (AP)- 1
Three men with their fingers on the
pulse of the cotton textile industry
told the American Cotton Manufactur
ers Association here today that the in
dustry should continue self-govern
ment under Federal supervision; that
the NRA should refine and effect rig
id code enforcement; that the textile
board seeks to promote confidence
between employer and worker; and
that business is better than in any
i previous corresponding period' in six
years.
The three were George A. Sloan,
president of the Cotton Textile .Insti
tute and chairman of the Cotton
Textile Code Authority; Dr. Robert
Buruere. chairman of the Cotton Tex
tile National Industrial Relations
Board; and T. M. Marchaqt, of Green
ville, president of the American Cot
ton Manufacturers Associaton.
All spoke during the morning ses
sion of the 38th annual convention of
the manufacturers here.
London press, in a pessimistic vein,
topped accounts of the French note
with such headlines as:
“Grave Disarmament Crisis,” “Di
rect Arms Talk Killed,” “Disarma
ment Deadlock,” and “France Blames
Germany.”
The morning Post said the French
memorandum is a waste of refreshing
candor, loosed into the sultry, suffo
cating atmosphere of make believe,
and ends once and for all the hollow
pretense that disarmament is either
safe or possible under existing condi
tions.
