LAW IS DEFIED BY
CHIEFTAIN OF DRYS Cale Burgess Operated on Floor Against All Legis lative Custom. Dully DUpiitrh Itnrrnn, In itar Walter Hotel. By C. A. PAUL Hileiph iMbv 13. —Openly defiant of the law, Cale K. Burgess, head of North Carolina’s United Dry Forces, lobbied on the floor of the S-enate during its strenuous early morning session as it passed the bill exempt ing 18 counties from the provisions of the State dry act, the Turlington iaw. Bulges* was seen to repeatedly leave his seat in a side lobby to walk out on the Senate floor to pat Sen ators White, Steele, Teague, and oth e, a rid upper house members on the pack and whisper in their ears. Quite obviously the bone-dry bloc was re ceiving information from the uncom proinisingly-dry Burgess. It was as sumed by every observer present that Burgess was actually directing the dry senators' campaign. Althougn no one except members of the Senate, newspapermen, and le gislative employees are permitted to entei the Senate chamber proper dur ing sessions of the upper house, Bur gess flagrantly flouted the rule. Later as the House was preparing to concur in the Senate’s action Sena tor Steele, a Democrat of Iredell, was seen to enter the hall of the lower house to confer with Republican Re presentative Charlie Jonas. The State Republican party is officially fcone dry. Representative Jonas has con sistently voted against every bill of fered to submit the liquor question to a vote of the people, either on a Statewide or a county basis. During heated House debates Democratic re presentatives have repeatedly inter rupted his speech to ask if he was making political speeches or address ing members of the House. Burgess has been present in the Capitol on every occasion when the legislature has voted on liquor con- i trol. He was conspicuously absent when the Page bill was being delbat. ] ed The Page bill would have increas- 1 ed the number of Turlington act en- i fercement officers in the State. 1 FORECLOSURE I MUDDLE REMAINS Measure to Make Law Uni form in Ail Counties Fails of Passage. Hally Dispatch Hnrcaa, In the Sir Walter Hotel. Raleigh, May 13—The 1935 legisla ture failed to clear up the clouded tax foreclosure situation in North Caro lina After Charles Whedbee, legisla tive adviser to Governor Ehringhaus, hda spent weeks in preparing a uni form tax foreclosure law, the Sen ate parsed it, but the House refused to pass the measure, thus leaving tax muddle just as the beginning of the session found it. Wnedbea bill, drawn after many 1 students of taxation had been con sulted, was considered iby most im partial observers to be a thorouoghly 1 good measure and would have pro vided a uniform system throughout the State in the matter of tax fore closure. The 1933 legislature passed several acts relating to the subject, but most of them were later declared unconstitutional by the State Sup. rtme Court, thus leaving the situation in worse condition than before the raws were passed. Several local bills, applicable only to particular counties, were enacted KIUL HQTHS.FUES.(AS, a. mosquitoesfcSfeaL fa »tner Insect Pests QyiCKER-flWflßrgf ■wMiJaMiJ Bee Brand Insect ■ spr»y KILL ROACHES.

The only tax foreclosure measure passed during the 1935 session was the bill offered by Representative Rouse, of Lenior, on Saturday. It provides that additional suits for delinquent taxes against persons already having such suits in the courts may ibe ad ded to the suits pending, thus reduc ing the expense to the delinquent tax payer and reducing the number of cases to be handled. SEVERAL SENATORS SHOW LEADERSHIP Newman, Gravely , Grady, Corey, Bell, Webb and Others Stand Out. \ In The Sir Walter Hotel. Dully 1)1.•* (Ditch llnrens, Bv C. A. PAUL Raleigh, May 13.—A backward look over the last four months reveals that several members of the North Carolina Senate made a good pres entation of their lawmaking wares. Senator Harriss Newman, who oc cupied the unenviable position of. Sen ate finance chairman, had the dif ficult task of diiecting the writing of the taxing bill for the State for the next two years. Still more difficult was the job of guiding it through the Sena,te after it came from the com mittee room. Heavy as the $65,000,000 tax bill weighed on his shoulders, he found time to do many other things. Perhaps his legislative masterpiece was his success in getting past a dry Senate the Cooper bill to exempt his (New Hanover) county from the State dry act. That was a real job. That he did it well is evidenced iby the fact that it is now law. He was also the author of the bills, enacted into law, which bring up to date the municipal finance and local government acts under which local government units may refund outstanding indebtedness. The bills also are designed to prevent future defaults by local units. Sena tor Newman is a formidable candidate fdr the al though he has not formally announc. ed. Perhaps equal to the finance com mittee chairmanship is the task of heading an appropriations committee That was Senator Lee Gravely",s job. He succeeded in securing adoption of the biennial appropriations bill al most as written by he and his com mittee in 60 days of grinding effort. It also was a $65,000,000 ibill, provid ing for the spending of the tax money for the next two years. Perhaps no man among the 50 senators is more highly respected than Senator Grave ly. The Nash county tobacco company official is being talked of for United States Senator, perhaps a,s a succes sor to Senator J. W. Bailey. It was Senator Gravely who fought to the bitter end a.gainst great odds until he succeeded in getting the upper house to pass the rabies bill which requires that all dogs be vaccinated against the dread disease. Leader of the anti-sales-tax forces in the Sen ate he espoused a lost cause so far as the 1935 revenue act is concerned. Yet his defeat on that question was forecast before he started fighting and came in spite of his efforts and not through any dereliction of duty on his part as a leader. Senator Arthur Corey, of Pitt, scor ed a smashing success on his second trip to the Senate chamber when he saw enacted into law his drivers’ li cense bill and his rabies measure. In the 1933 legislature he offered the drivers’ license ibill, only to see it re. jected. Early in January, 1935, he of fered it again; in fact, it was the third bill to be offered in the Senate. A student of highway matters, he played an important part in legisla lation in that field and had a great deal to do with the increased highway BARKS OF THE BULLDOGS A Paper to Keep the Public Posted on Happenings in Henderson High School.

OW What this Publica tion has meant to the public, but we do think that it has been a good means of keeping those of you who are interested in the high school, post ed on and connected with what is go ing on over here; If you have kept in touch with happenings at High School you will notice that the school has made an enviable record; besides taking pait in more outside activities this year than ever before. Our sen ior class is having 75 members out of a class of 83 members at the beginning ot the year to graduate. Considering the fact that most of these members who are not graduating stopped school before Christmas this is a very good percentage. u ; As for the members of the High school, we know that they have read and enjoyed, at least parts, of their patrol. Senator J. A. Bell, of Mecklenburg, while one of the quietest of senators! early in the session gained the re spect of his colleagues and succeeded in retaining it. Despite the fact that he voted against every liquor bill of any nature whatever, members of the No. 2 judiciary committee reported the five per cent beer bill without prejudice out of deference to him des pite the fact that the committee was composed of advocates of the bill. Most-often comment on the staid Meckenburger by his colleagues was that, he is “level-headed.” Senator Ernest Weibb, of Lenior, is another senator who retained nis mental equilibrium throughout the long and tedious session. As Senate chairman of the committee on penal institutions he headed the investiga tion of the State prison camp out rages centering in Mecklenburg coun ty where two prisoners lost their legs as a result of alleged inhuman treat ment. ftk h fjp : f «IPI oX-.'v vS&xWSSw .* : *»»:•. xWt. :3M f *plbplL “ .. r ■. tlggp- BBK Chesterfields go home with "Sc . me like a toot from the quittin m whistle ... | Ih| |k Mild they are, you bet... § Yet they got taste and W% plenty to spare.

Barks of the Mastiff Editor* At Wester THANKS TO YOU, NANCY JEAN 1 We, the senior class of 1935 are l deeply grateful to Mr. and Mrs. W. B 1 Hight for the most attractive recep -1 tion which was given for the Seniors ; at the Exposition on last Monday. Nancy Jean Hight, as our mascot, is a real asset to the well being of our class and we are deeply grateful for 1 the entertainment which was given in our honor and we are certain, be yond any reasonable doubt, that we will never forget their kind generosity which enabled us to have such a won derful time. HAPPY? SAD? We are not all happy And we are not all sad — These eleven years of study Haven’t been so bad— Our teachers have all been smart and fine. And have helped us the whole way up the line. But it seems mighty bad to end a career. Together again, Never! This is the last year. Our class as a body never more will stand To face the hardships which are al ways at hand. Among the years, we choose from the rest— This last year as being very much the best. Our sponsors have helped up and guided us through— It doesn’t seem possible—this work — by two, The trials they’ve suffered, the loads they’ve carried Couldn’t be done by ones who tarried. Then too, our officers have never failed— : If it weren’t for these pilots, we never would have sailed So successfully across that trouble some deep; So with praise of them, our hearts do leap. i Our mascots have been liberal and j gave of their time To make us so happy—joy sublime Leaders are necessary, followers are expedient— The class as a whole is the most im portant ingredient. j For were it not for the majority to j rule — | Democracy would be a theory in our I old school. !We’ve through now and happy, yet ! sad as can be. ! Graduation hasn’t been such a hard thing to see— A new life ahead, a grand one behind Let’s hope we’ll all be a benefit to mankind. LTNCONNU Os course, I’m no prophet on any thing on that order but if the situa tion between the football captain and the “Head” girl on William Street keeps up, then the number 4 tennis man better watch out or he’ll be rat ing number 2 in a love set. (You get it don’t you). Yes sir. why, Wednes day, I believe it was, the captain and Tie “‘head’’ girl walked all the way back from the country club just for the fun of it. Os all the uncertain triangles I’ve ever seen, none are as complicated as the one involving the “Miss Milady”. It seems tuat one day or night usually the green Pontiac driver will give her a big rush and the next—? Still she always has “Bon Ton” boy to rely on. at least it seems that way from his visits. Many a heart has been broken because of “Bon Ton’s choice. Oh Yeah? Gangster Wick seems to be getting along all right in Oxford, Believe it or not her name is Smith. They tell me there’ll be big doings over there this week-end. Yips Os The Puppies Editor: Billy Dennis Associate Editors Edgar Edwards Tommy Jenkins Sponsor: Miss Evelyn Bickley FAREWELL FOR THE SUMMER This is the last issue of the ‘‘Yips of the Puppies” to be published this school year, since school will be out in a few days. During this year the way has been hard, mor or less, and a few Freshmen have dropped out as the yearpassed. It isn’t known yet just how many pupils will go to the ninth grade, as examinations will not be given until after this tirticle is pub lished. It is expected that there will be few complete failures and although some may fail on one subject, it is hoped that there will be none. During the year the class officers, President Rowena Daniel, Vice-Presi dent Malone Farham, and Secretary and Treasurer Dorothy McDuffie, have served the class very well and the class appreciates this very much. The class can not express its thanks in words to Mr. Payne and the teach ers who have taught the Freshmen and especially the Class Sponsor, Miss Evelyn Bickley, who directed the Freshmen Play and did other things beyond mention to make the year a success. The others w\o did anything no matter how small th* deed, are not forgotten. The boys and girls of the Freshman Class have many friends in the Senior Class. Next year, with these friends gone, it will not seem like the same school, even though others will come up from the seventh grade. Each person in the Class of 1928 wishes the class of 1935 as a whole, and separate ly the best luck and the greatest suc cess. The Freshman class extends its ut most sympathy to Miss Dorothy Mc- Duffie, class secretary and treasurer, who is very ill, and sincerely hopes that she will soon be well, Miss McDuf fie is a * prominent and well-liked member of the class.

Crawford NEW MOON The sun goes down behind the clouds, Their brilliant glory trails, And in the east a crescent hangs Whose light bathes speeding sails. Twilight is here with moon so new, Its curtain slowly fails, While tiny lights shine brightly out From far-off city walls.
