! gained. Not in popularity, but in
something better. Before it was tried
every opponent of ti believed that
, some other device would work the
. financial salvation of the tSate. Ap
parently there are few now who
think so. They deny that the sales
tax has done it, they call it a failure.
It has tailed to raise all the revenue
; expected of it, but it has not failed to
oalance the budget and that was the
. great desideratum of the statesmen.
, Many legislators of 1931 and 1933 have
declared that they win reluctantly
. support this tax now, because, de
, spite the unmitigated nuisance that
it daily presents in the world of trade,
, it is he easest tax to collect and
smarts the least.
In that connection, it is recalled
; that when the North Carolina Fair
; Tax Association met in Sanford this
week the convention did not impress
in might and numerjeals. It was u
devastating reflection that President
, D. E. Turner, heftiest of its legisla
tive foes, was beaten for Iredell’s re
nomination by Con Johnson, out and
i out sales taxer. It- happened the

6 fell at declarer’s right. Dummy’s
10 of hearts was led. finessed, and lost
to West’s Q.
The return lead was the natural
one of the 5 of clubs, as it seemed as
if East held the missing Q of clubs.
The declarer won with that card. To
'guard against accidents, and count
ing upon the probability that the
missing trumps were held 2-1, South
led the K of spades, dropping all ex
cept the Q. without knowing which
opponent held that top trump.
The Ace of hearts was led. Dummy
ruffed a low Dummy’s K and
.7 of clubs were led. Upon the last
of those honors the declarer discard
ed his only diamond. Os course the
holder of the top trump could have
ruffed, but it would have done him no
good, as South would have made the
same number of tricks which he did
As West did not ruff, the declarer
led a low diamond and ruffed with
his 9. Dummy’s last trump was em
ployed to ruff next to last of declar
er’s hearts, dropping West’s K of
hearts. South ruffed another of
dummy’s diamonds, using his last
trump for that purpose. That was
the twelfth trick. South led his last
heart, and West won the second de
fensive trick, by ruffing with his top
As may readily be seen, neither
hearts nor no trumps would have
been good calls. That 3-Spades,
which few would dare*bid oh South’*

the sales tax so prominently in the |
Issue, as Greensboro where the fight j
wa- hot on both sides, went for the
candidate advocating this measure. In
Chatham, where Victor Johnson
sought to dislodge Senator W. P.
Horton, the senator with an adminis
tration record both for Gardner and
Ehringhaus, beat Mr. Johnson who
attacked the sales tax and defeated *
a second antagonist, both in the first'

Thus, while some 350,000 Tar Heels !

of Labor favors it, ana while some j

see salvation in the sales tax, the
Federation smites it. The political
point is' this: The United Dry Forces
