Cale Burgess Operated on
Floor Against All Legis
lative Custom.
Dully DUpiitrh Itnrrnn,
In itar Walter Hotel.
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
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.
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

into law during the session which end
ed on Saturday.
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.

Dully 1)1.•* (Ditch llnrens,
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.
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

do think that it has been a good
means of keeping those of you who
are interested in the high school, post

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

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

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

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.
Moonbeams give a starry glow
To waters of the bay;
And shores that in the sunlight gleam
No longer seem so gay.
