Court House Has Capacity
Audience for Big Politi
cal Rally
candidate CONFIDENT
Waddell Gholson Presents Speaker
and Predicts His Nomination In
Next Saturday’s
George Ross Pou, one of the five
candidates for nomination, for Con
gress in the fourth district in the Dem
ocratic primary next Saturday, spoke
in the court house here last night to
an audience that filled the court room
to capacity, and with an overflow
crowd estimated at well up toward
100 listening before an amplifier out
It was one of the largest crowds
ever to hear a political speech in the
court house here #
J. Harry Bunn, superintendent of
the Henderson cotton mill, presided
at the meeting. In opening the meet
ing, he asked the audience to bow for
a few seconds in honor of dead sol
diers, in view of the fact it was Me
morial Day, He then presented Wad
dell Gholson, young Henderson at
torney, who presented the speaker.
In his introduction. Mr. Gholson,
who was secretary to the late Con
gressman Edward W. Pou, father of
the candidate, at the time of his death
two months ago, predicted Mr. Pou
would be nominated in the election on
Saturday without th enecessity of a
second primary. He paid a high tri
bute to the late congressman, and said
he was convinced, after a trip over,
the district, that Mr. Pou would win
in the first election.
All seats in the court room were
taken, and extra seats, had to be pro
vided inside the bar. In addition,
large numbers stood in the rear and
around the walls.
Mr. Pou began by saying he was a
candidate for Congress and not en
gaged in an oratorical contest with
the “schoolboy orator from Nash
county,” a phrase which he used fre
quently in his address, but without
ever calling directly the name of
Harold D. Cooley, of Nashville, to
whom he was referring. He said the
moon and the stars were in “infallible
hands” and were not problems for the
Congres of the United States to deal
with. He declared it was unnecessary
for him to say that he would uphold
the hands of President Roosevelt
when he became a member of the
Mr. Pou told of his “diligent” work
in behalf of disabled veterans and
the widows and orphans of veterans,
and came out for immediate payment
of the soldiers’ bonus, and for proper
legislation to care for disabled World
War and Spanish-American War vete
rans. He also favored improvement
of the public schools and more ade
quate pay for teachers and Federal
aid t othe schools. He said he was
for free textbooks in the schools, and
for Federal appropriations for public
health work, and for Federal old age
The candidate advocated legislation
to stabilize farm prices, and read the
exchange of letters between F. M.
Ayscue, of Vance County, and L. V.
Morrill, of Snow Hill, in which the
latter stated Mr. Pou had contributed
to the campaign late last summer that
resulted in better tobacco prices. He
advocated the use of prison labor only
for State use only, an dnot in compe
tition with free labor. He also favor
ed immediate passage of the Federal
child labor amendment and complete
outlawing of “Yellow dog” labor leg
islation. He said hfe was for shorter
hours and more , pay for workers.
Mr. Pou cited his record in public"
office, including numerous offices he
had held, and told the audience this
experience onlv fitted him the better
for service in Congress. He reminded
that he had resigned his State job be
fore running for this office, and would
not have done it if he hadn’t known
“vou are going to give me this office.”
He said every time he had changed
jobs he had assumed greater respon
sibility in the public service, declaring
his administration of the State Prison
had the approval of four governors
and six General Assemblies. Defend
ing his long record in office, he said
Presiden trloosevelt had also held
public office over a great period of
The candidate vigorously defended
his administration of State’s Prison,
and said only thre such prisons in
the country were operated at a lower
per capita cost.
He cited the Cooley endorsement of
him for his recent State Highway and
Public Works Commission office, and
said he had endorsed Cooley for soli
citor of his district and for United
States district attorney, always with
out mentioning Cooley’s name. He
said jhe was not withdrawing these en
dorsements, for Mr. Cooley was a
capable man and lawyer for those
jobs, but that representing criminals
in court and the law-abiding citizens
in Congress were two different things.
Pou said he was no stranger in
Washington, declaring he knew per
sonally one-third of the members of
the House and some 20 or more sena
tors, and he knew President Roosevelt
personally, to say nothing of his ac
quaintance in government depart
ments. He said he had sat on the
laps of Vice-President Garner and
Speaker Henry Rainey when he was
a barefoot boy. He said he would get
into all cloak room and committee
room conference he could, because it
was there that most of the work of
congress was carried on.
Mr. Pou closed his speech by a re
cital of criticisms and rumors he said
were being circulated about him. He
said he did not deny them, but cited
facts which he said spoke for them
selves in refutation. He said he was
not supporting any man or men for
governor or United States senator two
years hence, and answered the “ma
chine” charges by saying if he had
a machine he could be in Congress to
day for he was offered the nomina
tion to succeed his father by six of
the seven congressional district com
mitteemen after his father’s death,
but refused it in order to run for the
office and obtain Jhe endorsement of
the voters of the district. He said he
was not a stockholder in any power
or tobacco company, and promised he
would not be during his term in Con
gress. He also said he told all State
highway employees when he resigned
that they were under no obligations to
him to work or vote for him, but said
he would, naturally, appreciate their
votes, as well as those of any one
Mr. Pou paid high tribute to Jere
P. Zollicoffer, of this county, one of
his opponents in the campaign, and
to Mrs. Zollicoffer. He closed with a
high tribute ot his father, and said
he had tried through the years to
abide by those principles which guid
ed his father’s life, and promised the
same interest in the people ot the dis
trict and the same high service his
father gave them, if he were eleetd to
