RAIN FOR TOBACCO No Planting Done Yet So Far As Reported, But Plants Are Good Farmers in this section are still waiting for rains ‘before transplanting their tobacco setting's from the seed beds for the start of the year’s crop, ~n d * so far as has been learned, there has been no planting here up to this time l’p to a few weeks ago there was too much rain and too much cold weather. Hut the showers ceased and left the ground in a dry baked condi tion. necessitating fresh plowing in some cases before the plants can be s , . More rain to soften the ground t, needed to make the soil suited for the sticking ol tobacco plants. No additional acreage rental pay ments have been received this eek by County Agent J. W. Sanders for dis tribution among growers who signed contracts with the government to cut their 1934 acreage by 30 per cent. Some ’30.000 is still dueg rowers here out of a prospective $90,000 to which they are entitled, and which they are expected to receive Iby the time the payments have been completed. Ad ditional checks are looked for each day. however, and will be turned over to the growers as soon as they are received. Payment of nearly SIOO,OOO to tobac co farmers here this spring isp roving a big help to them, and is relieving them considerably of the necessity for obtaining credits otherwise. Os course, these payments are not sufficient to finance the year’s crops, but they are a big help, n addition, the growers will receive considerable additional payments when the crop has been har vested next fall more in the aggregate than is bfing paid now. That will oe held in abeyance, however, until tne crop has been sold and until it is de termined if the growers have complied with the terems of the contracts they signed with the government. Practi cally lbO per cent cooperation is looked for. Vance has been one of the larg est signup counties in the Stbte, on a percentage basis, and nearly every grower has come in on the agreement with the government for the cutting of the 1934 acreage. > City Teachers To Be Paid First on State Procedure Teachers in the city schools here, as well as over the State, will get their eighth month pay checks before those in the rural schools, under the plan of disbursement outlined Iby the State School Commission, but which is in accordance with the $500,000 grant of the Federal government for payment teachers. Strings tied to the govern ment donation specify that its money must go to teaechers who have no other means of support, and that such payments cannot be made until county school authorities certify to the State School Commission the lists of teach ersw ho come in that classification. It is a. form of government red tape, apparently.

STEWART Washington, May 10.—The United States Chamber of Commerce, at its recent annual meeting in Washing ton, proved to unexpectedly well dis posed toward NRA—on the supposi tion that NRA’s “set-up”, as a going institution, is a/bout to pass under the U. S. Chambere’s control. To be sure, there were plenty of dissenters from expressions of friend ship for the organization Gen. Hugh |S. ohnson has created, as the most important part of the New Deal’s me chanism. Still, approval of it was so decided ly thep redominant note at the gath ereing as to imply that it represents the sentiment of the group which real ly directs thep olicies of the national association of the country’s local af filiations of business men —always as suming, it is to be borne in mind, that the governmentp resently is to' sur render code enforcement and other NRA administrative details into the U. S. Chambere management's hands. HENDERSON, (N. CJ DAILY DISPATCH, THURSDAY, MAY 10, 1931 This trend of influential opinion, re vealed in the course of deliberations at the Chambler’s latest conference of its highest type cognoscenti was pronounced enough to lend consider able color to Prof. Raymond Moley’s story that NRA was the insipration of the chamber’s own Inner circle, rather than of President Roosevelt’s Brain Trust, as popularly taken ior granted. t certainly was not the inspiration of the chamber’s rank-andfile of mem bership. The rank-and-file, m part, evidently continues to regard it as a radical experiment, tout gradually, from all indications, is being manoeuv ered into acquiescence by its leaders. That the U. S. Commerce Chamber is ruled by a numerically small ‘‘big business” coteria generally is recog nized in the capital. And that NRA has been manipulat ed to “big business’” advantage is freely charged, notably by statesmen like Senator William E. Borah of Idaho and Gerald P. Nye of North Dakota. If it is being operated with a view to keepeing “little lousiness” extin guished, the -serviceability of such a permanent bureau Is manifest. Little business, from all accounts, is peren nially troublesXome. While easy to plow under by intensive competition, intensive competition is too expensive to be employed except in spots, and as soon as the plowing under process isd iscontinued, in order to make money, the weed immediately springs up again. One Colored Driver Slightly Hurt; Beer Bottles Are Scattered About To large Chevrolet trucks one load ed with beer and the other with » cargo of empty beer bottles, collided north of Wise a few hundred yards from the Virginia line about 5 o’clock this morning, with one man slightly injured and both trucks badly aamag ed. State Highway Patrolman W. F. Bailey, stationed here, went to the scene and made an investigation, and placed iboth drivers under bond of $l5O for appearance in the county court at Warrenton next Monday. Robert Williams, colored driver of northbound truck with a cargo of empty bottles, suffered cuts about his face, but was otherewise uninjured. He had 160 crates of bottlees on board.

WILSON Asheville, May 10—The Industrial leaders of North Carolina represent ing all types of industry are to hold their Fifth Annual Statewide Safety Conference in Asheville May 17 and 18 Since this is the first Statewide Safety Conference to which women are invited it is expected there will be a large attendance. No credentials or fees are required as the conference is being held under the auspices of the North Carolina Industrial commission. The Convention is held annually for the purpose of stressing the import owner of the truck that was loaded with ’6O cases of beer traveling south. Sam Rosen, son of the owner, was driver of the truck. The bottles were scattered for more than a hundred ( feet albiout the scene of the wreck, and Patrolman Bailey said only 72 crates remained in good condition at the time he investigated the crash. The trucks sideswiped each other, and turned over, both being badly damaged. •WORLD. at a Glance By LESLIE EICHEL New York, May 10.—Take the case of the railroads, once more With modernized motive equipment they could reduce their costs greatly. The government is willing to lend the money. But managements seem to be living in a past age. Electrification is of course impossi bleu nder present economic conditions, MATT H. ALLEN, Chm. ance of safety and other phases of work supervised by this body. In previous years the conference has met at High Point, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, and Greensboro. Each year the attendance grows larger. Last year there were approximately eight hundred present. This year, due to the charm and beauty of the mountain flowers and foliage at this season of the year more than a thou sand are expected. The matter of being a delegate is not essential since much time will be devoted to mountain driving and ex except in the case of. very dense traf fic. A Pennsylvania railroad man, dis cussing electrification with me, said operating costs with electrification were even lower than had been esti mated. The modernized steam locomotive, which a few roads now are buying, Is likely to prove equally efficient, where traffic does not warrant electrifica tion. * * * Rail Buying A hullabaloo has been made over xAe amount of railroad Ibuying. As a mat ter of fact, even in the widely-herald ed rail purchases (with government money) the orders are only a fourth of purchases in normal years. * * * Steel Peak Wall Street looks for steel opera tions to continue rising for a whhe yet. The peak will be higher than had been predicted a few months hack. Youngstown is expected to reach or better a four-year high of 67 per cent within five or six weeks. J.

A general invitation to men and women of North Carolina is extended for them to come to Asheville May 17 and 18 during the Convention r’ while special low rates are irv effect in all Asheville hotels. Rates may be extended for two days additional to round out the week end for visiting nearby mountain resorts, including the Great Smoky National Park about 75 miles distant . Roosevelt’s Urge Might End Strike (Continued from Page One.) ruled that unless work is resumed by Monday, the U. S. S. Tuscaloosa, a cruiser 95 per cent completed, will toe removed to the Philadelphia navy yard. Conferences were called by Presi dent Roosevelt's mediation boar.d in the strike of nearly 15,000 Pacific coast longshoremen, demanding high er wages and shorter hours. About 6,000 employees of the Rem ington-Rand typewriter company in Syracuse and Uion, N. Y., Middletown, Conn., and Norwood, Ohio, walked out in a dispute over unionization. A general strike in the textile in dustry of the South was propheisied by William S. Kelly, vice president of the United Textile Workers of Amer ica at the convention of the Pennsys vania Federation of Labor. National Guardsmen patrol ed the Alabama coal and iron fields, whert two have been killed and many in jured in the strike of 8,000 miners. PAGE THREE City leachers To Get Checks First (Continued from Page One.) proceed to pay them at once. But before it can pay any of the teaechers jj ; the rural schools or in schools in the sratller towns of less than 5,000 population lr wust wait un til the county superintendents and county relief directors certify the glftiuea of those teachers which have no ocner means of support and which hence can be paid from relief funds. For the School Commission cannot de termine the number to be paid from State funds until all those to be paid from relief funds have been properly certified Tne belief that many peopre still have that not any of the teaechers could have been paid in full for thra last month if the State had not re* ceived the $500,000 from the Emerg ency Relief Administration, Is not cor rect, according to Leßoy Martin, exe cutive secretary of the commission. The commission had sufficient funds set aside to pay the teahers in full, even without this grant from the gov ernment. But it would not have been able to carry out its school bus re placementp rogram, since it would have had to use most of the amount Faudgeted for bus replacements for salaries. Now, however, it will be able to go ahead with its program to ref place some 900 old school buses with new ones.
