Vance county's new liquor control board spent much of its time today looking for a location for the liquor store that is to be operated here under county control, as the suit of the 2.483 to 545 majority in favor of the new plan given by the voters in a special election last Sat urday. The board consists of Thomas H. | Crudup as chairman, and Henry T. I Morris and George A. Rose, Sr., In I addition to the members of the board. Samuel M. Watkins, chairman I of the Board of County Commission ! ers. and B H. Perry, county attor ney. attended last night’s meeting, which was devoted largely to study ing the law under which the new sys tem is to be operated as authorized hy the last legislature. No manager was elected at last night's meeting of the board, not has any order been given for stocks of liquor. All of that will come later. Mi. Crudup said today the board had some “eight or ten’’ applications for the managership of the new store, and indicated there were others seek ing jobs in the establishment. The board chairman Indicated it would be probably about two weeks before the new store could be made ready for opening. At last night’s meeting it was de cided to spend much of today in look- j ing over tne city for a possible loca. tion for the store. Tomorrow the j mtlsseT BT LARGE NUMBER Orphanage, Hospital and Educational Work Shown in Sound Film A large audience attended the pre sentation of the talking picture. “The Trail of the Circuit Rider," in the ..basement of the First Methodist church Wednesday evening. The film is a presentation of the work being financed and fostered in North and South Carolina by the Duke Endow ment. set up in 1924 by the late James B. Duke, with $40,000,000 as the fin ancial backbone of the movement The picture is accompanied by ap propriate music, opening with “The Bells of St. Mary,” and closing with the familiar old hymn. "I Love To ' Tell the Story,” played on the Duke | University Carillon by Anton Brees, of the Bok Tower. The influence of the old Methodist circuit rider in the life of Washing ton Duke, founder of the Duke for. tunes and of the American Tobacco Company, is portrayed, and then fol lows scenes of hospital work, or phanage activities and educational In stitutions sharing in the distribution of funds. There are pictures of Wash ington Duke and his son, James B. Duke, founder of the endowment. Considerable space in the picture is given to'the work of the Oxford Or phanage, with several discourses by Rev. C. K. Porter, the superintendent, and scenes of activity of the children in the institution. Numerous instances of people who have been helped by hospitalization made possible by the Duke Endow ment, and who would have been de nied such treatment but. for this fund, are Eh own. ANNUAL AUDIT FOR COUNTY NOT BEGUN The Board of County Commission ers has not yet gotten around to the awarding of a contract for the coun ty’s annual audit, but the matter will likely receive attention shortly. The audit of the school accounts for the year has already been contracted for. but the checking over of the books and accounts has not starred. TWO MORE FARMERS HAVE COTTON BLOOMS J W. Floyd, of Kittrell township, and T. H. Weldon, of the Epsom com munity, were among those turning in cotton blooms to the Daily Dispatch office today, bringing the total to four farms which blooms have been tak en recently in this section. July 4 is considered quite early for the blooms of this plant to make their appear- I ance in this section. Henderson Daily Dispatch ■ members expect to go to Wilson, lai- I boro. Rocky Mount and possibly to s;«uth Hill, Va„ to observe the opera tion of stores They will seek to bene fit from their observations there. After a location for the new store has been arranged, certain repairs and remodeling will be necessary. The manager will be chosen and a stock of assorted whiskies will be ordered. Board members last night familiar ized themselves with the provisions of the law under which they will op erate. Under the terms of the act, the chairman, who will be expected to give much of his time to the admin istration of the business, will be al lowed a monthly salary of SSO, and the other two members of the hoard will receive $7.50 perd ay for every day they are in session. It is expect ed they will hold weekly meetings, at least at the outset, until the new store gets fullly into operation. In addition to the manager, it is believed that one assistant will be sufficient to handle the trade. Sev. era] more may be employed for the first few days of the operation of the store, until the expected rush is end ed. The board's office is expected to be in the liquor store, and meetings will be held there from time to time. Members of the board have expos ed the determination to demand of the officers of the law that bootleg gers be run out of business, and that the illicit sale of liquor be stopped entirely, or as far as possible. “That will either be done or I’ll resign from the board,” one member said. lUMPIIO ENTER RACE THIS MONTH Local Source Says Franklin Man to Make Announce ment July 15 Willie Lee Lumpkin, of Franklin county, will positively be a candidate j for lieutenant governor of North Car olina in the 1936 primary, and will make his formal announcement on or around July 15, according to M. C. Pearce, Henderson attorney, who is an intimate friend of the Louis burg lawyer. Lumpkin was an un successful candidate for speaker at the opening of the 1935 General As sembly, and was a leader with Dr. R. W McDonald, of Winston-Salem, of the anti.sales tax forces in the last legislature. Pearce, who sometimes ago said that Dr. McDonald would run for governor and Lumpkin for lieutenant gover nor on the same platform, now thinks there is some doubt about McDonald's candidacy, although his contact with Lumpkin leads him to believe the chances are favorable that the For syth legislator will be a candidate next year. McDonald and Lumpkin would count on the support of merchants whu are bitterly opposed to the sales tax, and also on support of organiz ed labor, which is opposed to the sales tax and is in favor of a State wide liquor control set-up. The question mark about McDon ald’s candidacy for governor, accord- j ing to Pearce, centers around the pro- | blem of finances. It costs money to | make a serious campaign for gover. j nor in a State as large as North Caro- | lina. and if the necessary funds can i be obtained. McDonald will in all like- < lihood be a contender for the Demo- | cratic nomination, it is believed. THREE DEFENDANTS IN COUNTY’S COURT Three defendants were tried by Re corder R. E.
