This is the third of five stories on secretaries to congressmen the persons who hear the brunt of the mail that now pours in on rep resentatives and senators. By RII.LA SCHROEDER Washington, May 27—Job hunting is one of the major duties of the con gressional secretary. In the old days it wasn’t so bad. Bill Jones from the district thought a year or two in Washington would be good for his son or daughter. He uating classes, President W. P. Few delivering the baccalaureate address, on Sunday morning. There will ho a number of addi tional events carried out as a part of the busy program. Os considerable in terest will be the first opportunity of commencement visitors to see the re cently placed finely carved figures of Washington Duke and his sons, James B. Duke and Benjamin N. Duke, which rest on elaborately chisled sarcophagi in the Memorial chapel of the University chapel. Commencement this year in a sense will serve for the dedication of the entire university plant, u dedication which was deferred on account of the building program being completed at the depth of the depression. Accord ing to Henry R. Dwire, Duke director of public relations and alumni affairs, a record attendance is expected at thei finals this year. wrote his congressman and tlie mat ter virtually was settled. But today is a different story. This session members of both the houses and the senate complain they are expected to transplant nearly their entire districts to Washington. They must find jobs not only for Bill Jones’ progeny but his entire family and its connections. Then, very probably, Ihey must find a job for old Bill him self, for he is finding farming rough going or the insurance business not what it used to be. Will Defeat Some The question of jobs promises auto matically to retire a number of the new members —especially those who campaigned on the promise “TTI get you a job in Washington.” And not a few of them did just that. Os course, there are capable jobget lers, such as Senator Boh Reynolds of North Carolina. Bob promised his hackers a job and Washington depart ment and bureau chiefs complain North Carolina, since the election of Senator Reynolds, has filled more than twice its quota of jobs. Tn other words. Senator Boh kept his promise New York state, too, has exceeded its allotment with Representative Sol Bloom in charge of his delegation’s job pool. But not all senators and a very few congressmen have the situation so well in hand. The lament “J can’t find a job for Bill Jones” is heard from one end of the senate and house office building to another. Job hunting has become a science and it takes foot work and brains to cope with it. How It Works The job seeker applied to his duly elected representative for a post —say with the PWA. Many of the congressmen insist that everyone in search' of a job first get the indorsement of his district or state leaders at home. Such indorsement says that Mr. So-and-so votes right and so has his family for generations. Ts he has the proper credentials, his case is turned over to the mem ber of the congressman’s office staff who has been given the task of find ing jobs for constituents. * Sometimes a not to Emil TTur.ia, pat ronage boss of the Democratic Na tional committee, will satisfy. But say the job seeker is insistent that he sees a job in the PWA (hat he desires to fill. A not to E. K. Burlew, in charge of personnel of the PWA, may turn the trick but like as not it von’t. Burley j has grown a bit weary of letters from | congressmen. Ts he had every job available in the U. S. government at his command he couldn’t meet all the demands. A telephone call may in spire him to extra efforts. Or a per sonal visit from the secretary or con gressman. And then, of course, it de pends somewhat upon whether or not the job actually exists. Only One of Many Burlew (who won’t thank us for this) is only one of several dozen per sonnel directors. But space forbids the listing of every name. Curiously enough a congressman doesn’t always make a friend of Bill Jones when he gets him a job. Or one for his offspring. Many of the mem bers recall grimly a comment made by Boise Penrose when he was the subject of a bitter personal attack by an old friend. He told his secretary: “Get out the files and see when I got him a job.” Lawyers to Advise Way Around Tax (Coni dined from Page One.) tax section of the revenue act. Tt was not stated definitely, but it was in timated, that the principal thing these lawyers have been employed to do is to figure out away by which the gas oline companies can avoid paying this tax, either by voiding or changing their contracts with individual station operators, or by any! other means. It was expected when this filling station tax section was passed, how ever, that the larger gasoline com panies that operate a large number of stations under their trade name, would immediately try to evade the. new law by any legal means that could be devised. As a result, an- at tempt was made to make the new chain filling station tax section as HENDERSON, (N. C.) DAILY DISPATCH, MONDAY, MAY 27, 1685 nearly air-tight "as possible and to make it mandatory for this tax to be paid by the parent companies rather than by the individual station mana gers. The law specifically says that the tax must be paid by the com panies whose trade names are used at the stations, rather than by the in dividual operators. The lobbyists for the gasoline com. panies, who stayed here, for weeks while the new revenue act was under consideration, publicly stated that if this law was passed they would re lease most of their stations from any control or contracts they may have had with them in the past, so that each station would be individually op erated. They also said that if they could not arrange their contracts so that each individual station manager would have ot pay the tax, they would then increase gasoline prices enough so that the public would nave to pay the increased tax. In fact, their prin cipal talking point against the chain filling station tax was that it would merely increase gasoline prices that much more. It now waits to be seen just what course, the gasoline com panies will pursue to either evade the tax or to pass it on to the public. State of Georgia Declared Wettest (Continued from Page One.) eral liquor dealers’ licenses from the Department of Internal Revenue, and no one knows how many thousands of unlicensed liquor dealers," King said. It is estimated by Federal and city officials that at least 200,000 gal lons of liquor a month are sold in the city of Atlanta alone and liquor has been and still is sold there almost as openly and publicity as cocoa-cola and other soft drinks.. Liquor has been sold openly in Savannah for years and still is, even to the extent that the hotels have their printed lists of cock tails and highballs and serve drinks openly in their dining rooms. “In a smaller city in the Western part of Georgia which I visited re cently, there is one bootlegger or li quor store proprietor who operates a fleet of five late model enclosed de livery trucks, who delivers any quan tity of liquor from a pint to a case in PROTECT YOUR LIFE AMD THE LIVES OF OTHERS!

I was at the home of a friend of mine when he delivered a case of bonded liquor. The prices are just as low if not lower than in Virginia or South Carolina, since these Georgia liquor dealers do not have to pay any State, county or city taxes and vir tually no effort is made by local of ficers to enforce the State prohibition law. In. ract, it was ihe bootleggers and wholesale liquor dealers who prevent ed the repeal of the State prohibition law in Georgia by supplying the funds for the campaign conducted by the drys,” King said. “For those who are now in control of the liquor business in Georgia know they can sell liquor more cheaply and make a larger pro. fit under the present prohibition law, than they could under a state liquor control plan, since they now do not have to pay any state tax or any state license fees. They also know that as long as they sell government bonded liquor the Federal alcohol tax agents will not bother them and that they need have no fear of town or county officers. “I stood on the street the other day/ with the prosecuting attorney for a district in western Georgia and asked him if he did not know we were stand ing within sight of at least twelve speakeasys or open saloons, as well as near the main office of one of the large liquor dealers there who had an extensive delivery service. He said he knew this as well as I did, but that it was useless to make any arrests since it was impossible to get a jury to convict any one arrested for viola tion of the State prohibition law. This same attitude prevails among the law enforomeent officers in every section of the State.” A large portion of the funds spent by the drys in their campaign for the retention of the prohibition law in Georgia came from wholesale liquor dealers and distributors in Jackson ville, Florida, whose biggest custom ers are Georgia, bootleggers, King said. He said that he had positive know ledge of a group of Jacksonville li quor wholesalers who made up a pot of $5,000 and presented a Methodist bishop with a certified check for this amount for him to use in the dry campaign. This bishop knew that this $5,000 had been contributed by these wholesale liquor distributors in Jack sonville, but accepted the money just thq same, King said. “The real facts in the Georgia situa tion are that the bootleggers and li quor dealers joined forces with the churches and the drys in order to keep the State liquor law in effect, so they would not have to pay any State, county or city licenses or be subject to any local control,” King said. “As a result, the State, counties or towns are getting no revenue from the sale of liquor and the bootleggers are making a much larger profit than would be made by legitimate liquor dealers if its sale were legally per mitted Supreme Court Unanimous ; In Its Historic Decision j (Continued trom Fag* One.) unanimous.

In addition, the act enabled the farmer to obtain full title to his pro perty by payment of its appraised value, regardless of the amount stip ulated. in the mortgage at the end of the five-year period. f CTSHffiS mmsmuia.
