Raleigh. Feb. 24.?Appointment by
Senator Simmons of a campaign
manager and field marshal tor his
campaign for re-election, opening of
Simmons headquarters in Greensboro
with a directing branch in Raleigh
and opening of the Bailey headquart
ers in Raleigh were three moves this
week which interested the state
presaging as they do the firing of
opening guns in the near future of
the Simmons-Bailey primary race, by
all odds one of the most interesting
races of recent years and expected to
have a decided bearing on the future
of the Democratic party in t)ie state.
The expelling of three students at
Slate college for haxing was fdllow
ed this week by the expulsion of four
others guilty of similar offenses, rul
ing that the state can not collect
g.tsoline tax from counties using gas
oline, affirmation of a sentence giv
eu under the Turlington act for buy
ing liquor, the first of its kind ever
to reach the high court, defeat of a
countywide eight months sdhool ref
erendum for Wake county, awarding
of bids for highway construction,
and other matters of interest kept I
the State's capital in the limelight |
ol the news last week.
Senator Simmons ended the specu
lation over his campaign manager by
appointing Charles A. Hlnes of
Greensboro. Mr. Hlnes will be as
sisted by John D. Langslon of Golds
boro, who will be in charge of ac
tivities ?t Raleigh while Mr. Hlnes
will direct the entire campaign from
Greensboro. Neill McKay Salmon of
LMlington will be Mr. Hlnes' assist
ant at Greensboro while T. B. Ward
of Wilson will be on hand to aid
While these developments were
taking place, the Bailey forces were
busy. James S. Manning, head of
directing the campaign from Raleigh
end today the campaign manager.
Mr. Shuplng of .Greensboro, arrived
in the city to start an active drive
for votes for Bailey. He indicated
today that while his fight would be
waged actively, there would be na
room for workers who desire only to
abuse. Mr. Shuplng is convinced of
the constructive righteousness of his
candidate's case and expects to pitch
the campaign on a high level.
By 35 votes the rural sections of
Wake county this past week refused
to approve a county-wide eight
months school system. It was said
tint the opposition was not so much
based on opposition to expenditures
for education as an opposition at
this time of business depression to
auything which might bring about
Dr. E. C. Brooks continued his in
vestigation of basing activities at
State college this past week, wl'.h
the result that four more students
were expelled in addition to. tht
three expelled last week. A curious
development was the expulsion it
two freshmen for haxing a sopho
more, somewhat reversing the usual
order of Jiaxing parties. Di. Brooks
feels that Tie has gotten m the bot
tom of the entire situation and that
the outbreak of hazing wl'ch figured
a great deal in the papet i has been
put down permanently.
In the first case of the sort ever
to come before It, the Supreme couit
ruled that the purchaser of liquor
under the Turlington act in North
Carolina is guilty of a crime, even
though the lPth amendment does tot
so classify blr.< He ruled that a
state has the right to go beyond the
18th amendment in regulating the
liquor traffic. Opinion by Chief Jus
tice Stacy was of wide Interest in
In addition to rnllng on this very
important case he Supreme Court
held that counties of the state are
not 'liable to taxation for the gaso
line they use, as the statute clearly
prohibits the taxation of a sub-divis
ion of the State government. Only
gasoline used for county purposes,
however is excepted. The revenue
department eetimates that the ruling
of the high court will cut the reven
ue of the state from the gasoline tax
by half s million dollars s year.
Fifteen projects of the state high-1
way commission were let to contract-1
ore this week at a total cost of $1,-1
358,917.61. The roadbufldlng is scat
tered widely over the state. The !
port of the fatalities chargeable to
automobiles last month was released
and showed that 58 persons lost their
lives, eleven of which fatal accidents
were at grade crossings. While the
total was less than the (8 killed in
December, it was greater than the 48
killed in January, 1929. There was
considerable Interest in the proposal
coming from Ashevllle that hone
racing with betting be legalized so
that Asbevtlle may set up s great
race track. While it was Indicated
if the matter comes before the leg
islature In the form of a bill to
amend the wagering laws of the
state, still It was pointed out that
such a measure had little chance of
approval, as public betting as long
since been condemned.
Governor Gardner having been at
tacked for alleged purchasing of gro
ceries from chain stores while
presetting a Live at Horns doctrine
gave answer to his critics In a most
gentlemanly yet scorching form this
past week. While denying thai his
major purchases wtro made from
chain stores, as alleged by critics,
the governor called attention to the
f??t that zincs he paid for hie gro
ceries out of bis own pocket, ho fig
ured that he had the same right as
svsry other cltisen to purchase from
whomsoever be pleased. Thus far
thsre Is no record that the unman
nerly critics have had any effective I
reply to make to Mr. Gardner's gen
tlemanly yet telling doclaratlmi.

With plono for the Democrats'
Jackson Day dinner on March It go
ing ahead, no UtU* comment was caus
ed this paat.treek when It was dts
curered that fire state officials had
been left off the list of honor guests.
They are Frank Grist, William A.
Graham. W. T. Lee, George Pell and
Stanley Wlnborne. It was explained
by the young Democrats in charge of
the affair that no slight was lntend
ca, that the invitations Just ran out
before these names were reached. It
le estimated that about 800 will be
present at the dinner, from every
section of the state.
Floyd Stanley, negro, was to have
died in the electric chair on February
?8 for murder, but he will not as the
governor has reduced bis sentence

Gardner took a few days off this
past week and he and Mrs. Gardner
rested and golfed at Pinelntrst A
whale is now on display at the state
museum, having been transported
piece by piece from Wrightsville
Poach, where it was beached. This
whale was subjected to considerable
treatment by musuem officials be

?MR. IRELAND LEADING A PEACE
Editor of The Daily News:
Your Mr. Ireland .leading a peace
jrigade is one of those things I not
coked to see. But I understand that
;ven grim Mars had his Intervals of
;ea?e, particularly when he contem
plated' a call upon the lady Venus.
Vnd no doubt, had one of his friends
>een running for office, be might
?ave been seen putting on a clumbsy
ittempt at capturing the dove.
But isn't Mr. Ireland somewhat
:elfish in his attitude? Altogether
too much like th# young man In
from bin honeymoon, who, when hie
young bride, In her Inexperience with
the cooking etoye, let (nil n naughty
word, eald to her: "Annie, you and I'
are good friends and all that, but I j
want you distinctly to understand!
that when there Is any cussing to
be done around here I am the one|
who Is going to do It."
Isn't It overbearing (or the Sim
mons, Ireland, McNInch wing of the
parly to insist that if there is to be
tiny conscientious hell-raising within
the ranks, they alone shall be en
titled to do itT
If, in my simplicity, I should
actually believe that charity and for
bearance were more important than
prohibition; If, after looking In my
Bible and seeing that part of God's
daily offering, as required by his own
command?through His prophet Mos
es?was wine; and if. as I believe, I
have historical proof that wine?not
less than one half of one per cent?
was poured for a thousand years on
the altar of Jehovah; if I should find
tbal Christ's first miracle was chang
ing water into- wine, and that His
most sacred sacrament taken today
in wine?not In less than one half
of one per cent?is an eternal refu
tation of prohibition by force, and
from all this conclude that such a
method of handling alcoholic drinks
is without divine authority, shall
be denied the right of standing by my
Mr. Ireland may very well say that
if God did not know that wine drink
ing was wrong, in the olden times,
he ought to know it now, as good
Bishop Cannon, the saintly Simmons
and others have told Him so in their
prayers. And there is always the
possibility that in a difference of
opinion between Mr. Ireland and
Providence over a moral issue, Mr.
Ireland could tell us definitely and

Greece, winner in the international
beauty contest which awarded her
the title of "Miss Europe" in com

kt once which one of them, was right.
I grant all this. v ?
But, still if Mr. Ireland is really
and truly a Democrat, and belongs
to the party whose chief tenet is fair
play, oughtn't he to grant me the
same right he assumes for himself,
and not, as in his letter he so clearly
does, chide me for voting as my con
