Capital Gossip BY HENRY AVERILL Raleigh, Oct. 30. —A full two-weeks after the State Fair no rigures on the financial result are obtainable fiom the Department of AgNclulture where it is said that an audit is still in pro gress. No statement will be given out until the department is prepare! to give exact figures, ir was stated. Some folks arc wondering just ho*v powerful effect Jos ill .V iliam Bailey had on the State Grange convention in Winston-Salem. Prior to the senator’s appearance and address, all the “dope” was that the Grange would a Vpt : inging re solutions calling for compub ory crop control. Then came Mr ; -\'»i!ey with a speech attacking control. There followed a beautiful “straddle” by the Grange, with compulsory control pro minently absent from the things ad vocated. “There are more human interest within 100 miles of Dare county than in any similar-sized area in the Unit ed States —no, the whole world,” said D. B. Fearing, executive director of the Roanoke Island Memorial Asso ciation of Manteo. One thing that can be said about Dare county folks is that they are thoroughly and sincere ly convinced that they live in the greatest place on earth. It’s something which enables them the more easily to convince others. Daily bulletin of the Theft Bureau, Department of Revenue, for Friday listed a trailer as stolen in Durham. Revocation of 189 drivers’ licenser during the week brought the State’.' total to 13,511. “Sandy Graham is missing a golden opportunity if he doesn’t get into the Senate race," said an unusually well informed student of political affairs in North Carolina who doesn’t want his name used. “Sandy could win rather easily against the two can didates now in the field,” he con tinued. September activity of the State Em ployment Service showed that 3,417 more placements were made than ap plications received. Placements reach ed a total of 9,798, with private in dustry accounting for 6,789 of this number. R. Grady Johnson, director of the penal division, says he is getting a bit fed up on people who think they are funny when they call him on the phone and open the conversation with “This is Bill Payne talking.” Inciden tally, Mr. Payne seems to have con centrated again as he hasn’t been re ported in three or four places at the same time recently. BIG TOWER HOUSES IN FOREST SERVICE Better Provision Made for Fire Ward ens in State Conservation Board Service Daily Dispatch Burenn. Til the Sir Walter Hotel. Raleigh, Oct. 30.—Bigger and bet ter tower houses are being provided for the forest wardens who man the forest fire observation towers over the State, Forester W. C. McCormick, in charge of forest fire control for the forestry division of the Depart ment of Conservation and Develop ment, said today. At the present time there are 76 forest fire observation towers in the State, but only 53 tower houses for the tower keepers and their families —and many of these are only one or two room cabins or shacks. Present plans, however, call for the building EXCUSE IT, PLEASE! ~ i a ..—~ ...1.... Cob: “Heh-heh! I don’t believe he ever caughtafiahthatbifc" of a keeper’s house at every forest fire observation tower and for the enlargement of many of the smaller houses, McCormick said. During the past summer seven five room tower houses have ceen built, four four-room houses and two more five rooms houses will be built this fall, McCormick said. All of those ■houses are being built with Federal funds provided by the Civilian Conser vation Corps and with CCC labor. Quite a number of small houses have also been enlarged, while wells, gar ages and tool houses have been pro vided where none existed before. The forestry division has already asked the CCC to build 11 more three and five room tower houses, with garages, tool houses, well, garden space and out-buildings for cows and chickens, McCormick said. No Scarcity Os Turkeys This Season Dnily Dlxmifi'h Bnrean, In the Sir Walter (Intel. Raleigh, Oct. 30.—There will be no scarcity of turkeys on Tar Heel tables this year. While a ten per cent decrease in turkeys throughout the United States is repo’rted, there are 23 per cent more Thanksgiving birds on Tar Heel farms this season, W. H. Rhodes, chief of the Department of Agricul ture’s statistical division reported to d#*y- Despite the decrease of birds in the nation, the price per pound for tur keys reported at 18 cents in North Carolina is the same as for Sep tember 15 last year, Rhodes said. State Department' of Agriculture authorities have been informed that North Carolina producers intend to market their birds earlier this sea son than last year. “In 1936 about 82 per cent of all the birds sold in the state were marketed in November and December,” Rhodes said. “This year, farmers report that ‘hey intend to make about 90 per cent >f their sales during these two .nonths. Earlier marketings are also reported for the country as a whole.” The agricultural statistical report ed that “conditions have been quite favorable in North Carolina this year for healthfulness of turkey flocks.” Basing his information on federal reports, Rhodes said that the reduc tion of the number of turkeys in the United States was general in all sec tions except the New England States where they are about the same as last fall.
