Ny-2 of North Dakota has been creat ing, in the closing days of the cur rent session of Congress, the essen tial issue on which politics will be fought through at least the coming cornpaign for seats in the two na tional legislative chambers and the presidential campaign of 1936. Maybe that will not end the con flict, either, but it will last that long, ■anyway. It is a conflict over the merits of the Rooseveltian New Deal. Nye forced the Darrow investiga tion of NRA. No matter whas one’s opinion of the Darrow report mal. Possibly it was fanatical and ridiculous; possibly not. The fact remains that it tore the whole subject of the New Deal program wide open. Nye contention is that it is not genuinely a progressive program; that it is covertly reactionary instead. , * * * • I know Senator Nye pi city well. He’s a newspaper man. He sat next to me in the press section at the Kan sas City convention, which _pominat ed Herbert Hoover for president in 1928. As a progressive Republican, he v«as not enthusiastic over the Californian’s selection at the G. O. P. ticket’s head. Yet he supported him subse quently, for election. Thoqgh I never never told him so, I blamed him for this. Certainly he was not a Hoov eritel ater on. Indeed, the Hoover administration had no bitterer op ponent on Capitol Hill. Nevertheless, he .was not pro-Rooso velt in 1932. Nor was tie pro-Hoover that tice. He himself was a candi date for re-election (and carried every county in his state, except one), but he ignored both national tickets. Subsequently he told mew hat his reasoning was. “After the 1928 convention,” he said, “I har a long talk with Herbert Hoover. He convinced me that, if elected, he would prove to be a real liberal. In that belief, I did my best for him. We know what fqjlowed. “Right then I made up my mind: “Never again will I support a can didate on the strength of mere empty assurances”’. 1889—The great Johnstown, Fa., flood which took toll of more than 2100 live*. Shaw And Averette Play r Brodie And Kirkland Finalists Challenge Finalists of This Year to 18- Hole Match Sunday Afternoon at 2 O’Ciock; Large Gallery Expected to Witness The Match E. F. Shaw, 1934 golf champion of the West End Country Club, and Lee ,Averette. runner-up for the champion ship in the recent tournament held over the club’s course, have accepted the challenge of J. H. Brodie, 1933 champion, and O. T. Kirkland, 1933 runner-up for an 18 hole match at the club .Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Shaw eliminated Brodie in the re cent tournament in the semi-finals, while Averette was turning back Answers To Questions About The Primary From the numerous inquiries which come to me almost daily with respect ! to the right of Republican and Inde ! pendent electors to vote in the pri ! mary election, it appears that there ! is still considerable misunderstanding j about this subject, so I will attempt to answer some of the more import , ant of these questions. Can a voter, registered as an inde i pendent, legally vote in a Democratic or Republican primary? Answer, No. j When one registers as an Independent ;he thereby states that he is not a i member of, or affiliated with, either of the two political parties holding primaries in the State this year. So long as he remains an Independent, he is not a member of either party and therefore, the law confers upon him no right to participate in the se lection of the nominee of either the Democratic or Republican parties. In the General Election an Independent voter, of course, can vote any way he so desires, but he cannot vote in a primary election. Can a Voter, registered as a Repub lican, legally vote part or all of the Democratic primary ticket in a pri mary election? Answer, No. When one is registered as a Republican and declares that he is a Republican at the time he goes to vote in in the primary, he should be given only a Republican ballot, if the Re publicans have a ballot in that pri mary, and if there is no Republican ballot in that primary, then he should not be allowed to vote in such pri mary. He has no right to be given the Democratic primary ballot. One cannot legally vote in the primary part of the Republican ticket and part of the Deniocratic ticket. Like wise, a democrat voter is not entitled to vote for any of the Republican can didates in the primary.

Kirkland was eliminated by J. H. Brodie in the quarter-finals. Much enthusiasm has been worked up among the golfers concerning the j-exhibition match (between last years l and this year’s finalist, and a large ; gallery is expected to be at the club i for the match. I The challenge was thrown out to the finalists in this year’s tourney just ' as soon as they were known by Brodie and Kirkland. the voter is assisting in the seleqtion of the nominee of the party with which he is affiliated in good faith. May a voter legally vote as a Demo crat in the primary and as a Repub lican in the following general election? A person may change in his party af filiation and ask that the change be entered on the registration book. How ever, a voter who votes with one party in the primary and with another party in the general election may have his vote challenged on the ground that he does not affiliate with the political party in whose primary he proposes to vote and is not in good faith a member thereof, meaning that he does not in good faith mean to support the nominee of such party in the general election, and it would be the duty of the registrar and judges of election of the precinct to hear and decide the challenge. Are markers allowed in primary elections? Answer, No. A voter may be accompanied into the election booth and assisted by any member of his family, or by any election official up on his own request or by any other person requested by him. The law no longer require the approval of the election officials, and a voter may call upon any one he wishes to assist him. Is absentee voting still allowed in primary elections? Answer, Yes. The last Legislature did not abolish ab sentee voting in primaries as so many people think. It did as to local elec tions in about six counties. Applica tion for absentee ballots must be made by written order of the appli cant, whether made in person, or by mail, or through another person. The absentee ballots should not be deliver ed for voting by the absentee method when one person simply comes or writes for them for the use of another. The absent elector must sign his name on the back of the ballot for indenti fication. The oath required on ab sentee certificates must be actually administered to the voter, or the court have held, it may be thrown out.

Raleigh', May* 30.—Efforts of lead ing citizens of North Carolina and othe.r southeastern states to perfect a permanent organization for advertis ing the resources of this section of the country were enedorsed tosay .by R. Bruce Etheridg'e, director of the De partment of Conservation and Devel opment. Mr. Etheridge commended the pro gressiveness of the group of leaders in this and othe.r stater- for launching this movement, and expressed the hope they would be able to carry their plans to maturity. Full cooperation from the conserva tion department was pledged to the organizers from his agency. He de clared that the field for their opera tion is unlimited. He 'expressed a be lief that the present is the psychologi cal time for the proposed organiza tion, with improving financial condi tions enabling hundreds of thousands of persons who were deprived of va cations during more stringent condi tions now to take vacations and to seek recreation. •WORLD. at a Glance By LESLIE EICHEL New York, May 30. —There seems no question now that there will be a labor bill this session of Congress yet. That is the view in New York. Strikes and riots mignt not have occurred if large interests in New York and Detroit and Pittsburgh and elsewhere had not obstructed the bill to try to prevent its passage-Rhus holding it up. The government neecrs immediate and powerful agencies to bring em ployers and employees together. A revolution could (begin in a steel strike if the government did not have the power legally to force arbitration. And a steel strike is scheduled. The bill, if and when passed, tech nically will be a victory for labor. Morally, it will be a victory for the people—its sponsors say Was White Right? Governor George White of Ohio has had an administration of disas ter. i He was criticized for failing to close Ohio banks earlier n 1933, then for the rotten condtion exposed in the Ohio state banking department. In the Toledo strike, he now is be lieved to have acted too abruptly, too violently. (Washington is sure he has—and wishes it could undo the damage.) When state troops use not tear gas when troops shoot to kill, and do kill, but gas that blasts out people’s eyes, in labor riots, then a question arises as to where law and order actually (begins.
