the Memphis speakers were rein
forced with a petition more than 101
yards in length and hearing the sig
natures of thousands of Memphian
asking that the veterans come there
The document contained the name
of 16.000 school children alone. 1
was a nip and tuck race between th
twe as the balloting progressed bu
Memphis always kept a jump in th
lead and wlnven the roll call had beei
completed had polled 629 votes ti
512 for Dallas.
A number of the veterans hat
argued th.it the reunions, because o
the age of the delegates, alway
should be held in a central city of th
South ni order that the journey migh
not be too hadr on those residing ii
the more distant states.

the manner in which he had been rc

the southern people, too, for th
kindness with which they have treat
ed my son. The South never had ;
better friend than Warren G. Hard
Dr Harding was called to the plat
form again later when a daughte
of the confederacy, hearing a hug
silk Confederate flag announce
that hi' had expressed a desire fo
one. The emblem, the "Stars am

forenoon session during a discussio
of the term "rebel" as applied t
Confederate soldiers shouted at on

peated the phrase and this tim

J M. Troutt, of Jackson, Tenn

The discussion of the term "Johl

reading of a telegram by Genen
Carr from The Columbia (S. C

used by southerners, concede tl
northern contention that secessic
was rebellion?" it asked.
General Carr in a reply to tl

'WATAUGA CABBAGE GROWtRS
Anyone visiting the court house
e'last Saturday would have been connjvinced
that there was something
lS; going on; the place was alive with
e J farmers talking cabbage and kraut.
e I This was the first meeting of the
t|! farmers who have signed the co,8j
operative cabbage contract. In look|
ing over the crowd one was struck
t with the fact that there was as a
e! bunch of farmers as good as could be
' found in Watauga County, and that
j means as good as could be found any
. The first thing on the program was
to form the Watauga Co-operative
Cabbage Growers' Association and
elect Dirpct?r? to ron/lnA tlio Kun'
e ness. In order to have the Directors
j equally distributed the County was
g divided into six sections, according;
to the members actually signed up,
and each section nominated two men
n as representative of their group.
^ Those nominated were placed before
the whole body and one man chosen
g from each group. The election was
by secret ballot and resulted in favor
of the following men : J. C. Mill'r,
H. Nonl Blair, N. L. Mast, W. L.
g Winkler, C. J. Farthing, and M. 11.
^ Norris. The seventh Director will be
appointed by Dr. B. W. Kilgore, Di^
rector of Agricultural * Extension
p Work in North Carolina. The Direc-1
tors will hold their tirst meeting
Saturday, April 21.
j This organization proposes to pur?
chase a site and build a packing
u house with kraut factory and canning '
& equipment combined, and to be ready
t for operation by the time cabbage are |
n ready to cut.
We understand that a part of the i
cabbage are to be put on the market j
as graded cabbage, only the firm I
' medium sized heads, but that about
fifty to 6ixty percent of the cabbage
' will be manufactured into souer
kraut and sold in the most remuneral

On last Saturday State Highway
Commissioner Hanes, accompanied by
Chief Engineer IJpam. and District
Engineer Currier, made a special trip
to Boone, with a view to shedding
some light on a few points in regard
to the Watauga road building program,
which had caused some complaints

that it was the purpose of
the meeting to ascertain just what
the grievances were and to correct

occasioned the objections
The firs: ami greatest caasv for
iissatisfaction of Wataugans, Mr.
[lanes was told, was in a report ptibishod
in the Ilighvay Bulletin, givng
tne c- t '>f one-fifth mile of road

Highway e 0,000.00. The com mis;ioner
went into a detailed statement
showing th' cost to have been around

ii the publication of the offi*

jut that only $30,000 of Wataugas
ipportionment of the sixty-live millon
appropriation had been expended
md that it was the purpose of the
:onuuission to use funds to the ani>unt
of $273,000, instead of $185,)00
which is really our pro rata abutment.
.Mr. Hanes gave out the opinion
hat the Boone and Blowing Hock

to themselves, if instead of pubicly
knocking the road work, they
couid send their complaints to headjuarters,
where they will be receivd
with every consideration. They
nvite criticisms of their methods, and
impose to go all the way in "making
