Trim M. E.’s 5 to 3, Driving
Fayne From Mound;
The M. P. Baracas strengthened
their top place another peg in the City-
League yesterday afternoon when they
trimmed the M. E. Baracas 5 to 3 in a
regular Sunday school day for the loop.
Payne opened on the mound for the
losers but gave way in the second in
ning to Woodlief after the winners
had gotten to him for two tallies in
the first stanza. Woodlief worked a
nice game the remainder of the con
test, allowing five hits.
Polly Hight, ace of the M. P.’s
mound staff, pitched his team to vic
tory although he was nicked for 11
hits. Nice work by his mates helped
him out of several bad places.
Terrell’s big bat played havoc with
the M. E.’s hopes. The hard hitting
first sacker got t-hre hits, two doub
les and a single out of his three trips
to the pan, scoring all three times.
Hickman Finch was the best for the
losers, getting three single sout of four
trips but his mates could never push
him across the plate.

from the Nazi party.
Premier Hermann Wilhelm Goer

carrying out drastic polic eaction on
Hitler’s personal orders against Nazi
storm troop leaders attempting to

His measures, h esaid, were extend

foreign press correspondents, “I have

warn you seriously not to let your
imagination run wild.
“For weeks we have known that a'
certain clique of storm troop leaders
have been attempting to mislead thr
brave and decent stor mtroop men on
to a path leading to revolution.
“That would necessarily have led
to the over throwing of the state.

Johnson told news men his letter sig
nifying compliance would give him the
right to bid.
“Are you glad to get the letter of
compliance?” Johnson was asked,
“Sure,” he replied with a broad grin.
No questions had been raised for
Ford’s compliance with the code, but
President Roosevelt by executive ord
er ruled that bidders on government
contracts must sign certificates of
compliance. This Ford hitherto had
failed to do.
Johnsor said Ford’s notification sim
ply was a letter saying that he was
complying. He said this was all that

HENDERSON, N. 0.
Budget Balanced For The
State A* Fiscal Year Ends
(Continued from Pb£e One.)
this amount, it was learned from re
liable sources today. This means that
Governor J. C. B. Ehringhaus, as di
rector of the Budget, and Frank Dun
lap, assistant director, hgve managed
to slice at least $1,500,000 off the mea
gre appropriations made by the 1933
General Assembly in order to hold
expenses down and keep the budget
It was also learned today that the
total amount of revenue expected
from all sources will probably amount
to' $24,000,000, although the final re
port of collections by the Department
of Revenue will not be made public
until Monday. Total revenue collec
tions from tax sources through Fri
day amuonted to $21,268,932.18, and
of this amount $119,598 was received
Friday.- It is expected from SIOO,OOO
to $200,000 more will be received to
day and Sunday, which can be credit- *
ed to this fiscal year. Total sales tax
collections for the eleven months up
to last night were $5,994,298.67. It is
expected that this will amount to $6,-
000,000 by Monday.
However, the State has some other
source of revenue, known as “non tax
revenues” which are expected to swell
the total revenue for the year to about
$24,000,000, and which will be suffi
cient to keep the budget in balance.
But the final figures on the non-tax
revenues as well as tlfose showing to
tal expenditures, will not be known for
ten days or two weeks yet, the budget
bureau said today.
It was believed by some that the
collections of bac ktaxes which have
been made this year on taxes levied
and payable in previous years, would
be regarded as revenue for this year
and swell the total to even more than
the amount originally estimated. But
it was learned today from the Budget
bureau that these back tax collections
cannot be credited to this year’s reve
nue collections, but merely go into the
cash in the State treasury to helß re
duce past deficits. So the $1,500,000
collected this year from the old 15
cents property tax in effect from 1931
to 1933 cannot be regarded as new
revenue and included in this year’s
total, but will be used to apply to
last year’s deficit.
Another thing that is regardde as
significant is tha twhile the governor
and the budget* bureau have managed
to trim at least $1,500,000 from the ap
propriations made by the 1933 Gen
eral Assembly, they have not trimmed
any of this from the salaries of any
of the State’s 23,000 school teachers
nor from the salaries of any of the
other 9,000 State employes. The en
tire amount has been saved in operat
ing costs rather than from any reduc
tion in the outlay for personal service,
dxcept where unnecessary employes
have bee'neliminated entirely.
There is still a possibility, of course
that there will be a slight discrepency
between the actual expenditures and
revenue collections. But even if there
is a slight difference, this can be made
up without the State having to issue
any notes by borrowing from the sur
plus in the highway fund, as it has
done in the past. It is also expected
that even if there is a small deficit
this year that it will be more than
offset by the expectancy of increased
collections next year.
