ER A Shake-Up Due
To Some Friction
• Continued from Page r>n**,)
there friction and. dissatisfaction with
in the organization that is only now
beginning to .come; to light? ! . it
These questions have been asked
more and more here for the past sev
eral days as one resignation after an
other has become known. The three
nounced from Washington several
more importan* resignations were an
days ago hy Mrs. Thomas O’Berry,
State administrator, although there
had been rumors current here for sev
eral days that these resignations had
either been submitted or would be
very soon. The first to resign was
Ronald B. Wilson, director of sur
plus commodities, and who for seve
ral months was acting relief director
in the State before Mrs. O’Berry was
finally appointed. It is generally con
ceded that Wilson probably knows
more i<bouf the relief problem in j
North Carolina than any one else, not j
evefp excepting Mrs. O'Berry. For
many years he was executive secre
tary to the secretary of the State
Board of Health. He was later chief
assistant to Dr. Fred W. Morrison
wheri Morrison headed the State re
lief set-up under former Governor O.
Max Gardner. He was then named
acting director of the State’s relief
program by Governor Ehringhaus
after Dr. Horrison resigned to go to j
Washington. Most people believe that |
but for the fact that he did not have
quite the proper political backing he
w r ould have been named State relief
administrator instead of Mrs. O’Berry.
Mrs. O'Berry was vice chairman of
the State Democratic Executive Com- i
mittee when she was appointed as
State relief director. Later on, when
the Federal government, took over the .
administration of relief in the State]
through the ERA. Mrs. O'Berry was',
retained • as ERA administrator
When it was finally announced that
Wilson had resigned, those who were
familiar with the backgrounds/...,t;be

resigned. This caused even more
.speculation and talk, since Ross had
resigned' his post as superintendent of
State farms, in which job he was in
charge of all the State-owned farms,
ipcludittg ail ’ the. prison and institu
tion aD farms, in order to accept this
position, at the invitation of Mrs.
O'Berry. It has now been learned
that Ross submitted his resignatton
as secretary and treasurer of the Ru
ral Rehabilitation Corporation back
about the middle of March and that
he was asked to stay on a while long
er. He submitted it again about April
12, but is still serving as special mar

head of the transient division of the
ERA. Sh e lias been succeeded by ,T.
Mrs. O’Berry. When questioned by
this; bureau. said that these were
merely routine resignations and that
she did not regard them as being sig
nificant. When asked why she an
nounced them from Washington in
stead of from here, she said that she
had no thought of them as being of
news interest until asked about them
in Washington by a reporter there.
She said further that Relief Admin
istrator Harry Hopkins knew nothing
of these resignations, since they were
purely a Stale matter.
Reports current, here, however, are
to the effect I hat for many months
friction lias been developing in the
ffJRJA organization here, especially
around J. M. Coleman, chief ERA
engineer, and as such also director of
the works division and head of the
purchasing division. In fact. Cole
man is generally regarded as being
most powerful individual in th*
ERA organization and as the domi
nating influence in it. He is a for

having at one time run for office
for city commissioner here.
