Schools Observe Two-Day Holiday Incidentally TJi a nksgiving Holidays and l^d Weather Come at Same Time Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) and Friday were observed as holidays by practically all the schools in the county. The school schedule is so arranged that ob servance of the holidays will not disrupt the weekly and monthly routine, due to the fact that the schools started on Wednesday. It Thursday and Friday had not been observed as school hol idays it ia highly probable that some of the schools would have had to close on account of in clement weather anyway. Some of the heaviest and most pro longed rains in the last several years fell during the latter part of the week and dirt roads were in a denlorable condition, which would have made it extremely dtftldult for buses to operate on schedule.

Hoey, of Shelby. In the Greensboro Daily News Friday there appeared the fol lowing article by that newspap er’s correspondent in Raleigh: Raleigh, Nov. 29.—Farmer Bob Doughton, chairman of the national house ways and means committee, didn’t say it this week, but he is a candidate for governor of North Carolina. “I have not told any man that I am a candidate for governor,’’ the farmer said somewhat firm ly, as if to reproach people who take liberty with his aspirations; “and I have not said that I am going to run for governor,” the congressman continued. And there isn’t anything so terribly exciting about such a proclama tion. But he never looked so gov- ernish in his life. He is in the race. Can Fool Prophets Of course he can confound everybody who says he will make the race. The usual way of treating him is about this: Mr. Doughton is seriously consider ing the race, but not until the first of the year will he actually get into the contest. He will an nounce them. It’s e.xactly the other way at this writing. Mr. Doughton is running now; but he may decide against continuation of the race after the first of the year.

Five New Buses Allotted Wilkes Transportation E q u i[Hnent For ^hools is Now in Fair Condition Since the beginning of the present school year the State School Commission has allotted to Wilkes County five new school buses. When schools began the coun ty had twenty buses and many contract lines were necessary in order to begin the schools. The few county-owned buses were hopelessly crowded and It was necessary for them to cover two or more routes, making it diffi cult to operate on schedule. The new buses the state has sent into W)ilkes are larger than any of the busis heretofore used in the county and are capable of carrying from 50 to 60 school children. Supt. C. B. Eller and the county board of education have placed the buses at the school where the need for additional transportation facilities was greatest. All county and state owned buses are now in good condition and the transportation system is working in a satisfac tory manner.

Wooten, director of the Hve- county office located here. The office was established here on November 22, 1933, at which time a similar office was locat ed In each county. Six months ago the service Nflrtji Caro lina was reorganized "’to rednea operating costs and four other counties, Watauga, Ashe, Alle ghany and Alexander, were grouped with Wilkes to form a district with the office here maintained as headquarters. The total number of placements an nounced by Mr, Wooten inclnden those by the Wilkes ofUce befo^ consolidation and the number the office has placed since that time but does not include the number by the individual cotm- ty offices before the new set up. Of the total of 2,008 individn- als placed on jobs 94 were women and 358 were veterans, who were given preference when ever possible. Placements on Public Works Projects led the list with 1,364 while 379 men and 4 2 women were placed on Civil Wprks Pro jects in Wilkes County alone. Placements in home and private Industry rank third in number with a total of 143 men and 53 women. Twenty-one were placed in Civilian Conservation Camps, nine in government service and eight as farm tenants. The number in the active files at the local office is greatly re duced from the total of a year ago, although many have regis tered or renewed during the past three months in the hope of se curing Jobs on the four GWA projects now under way in the county. Although the National Reem ployment Service was set up as a temporary organization, it ia expected that the state and na tional governments will work out a cooperative system where by it will be made permanent to serve the pvblic and especially to localize labor on Public Works and other projects.
