THE DANBURY REPORTER. Established 1872. SPUES PRESSED V WTO SERVICE I HOME WEEK-END I Stokes Representative Appointed Chairman Of Committee On Elections—Holds Position Om Several Other Committees General Assembly Swinging Into High Gear This Week Liquor Bills, Absentee Ballot, Sales Tax, Bonus, Old Age Pensions, Unemployment In surance, More Pay For Teach ers, Diversion Of Highway- Funds, These Are Some Of The Important Matter* Coming Up—Sparger To Meet With Stokes Constituents Soon. Representative from Stokes, Hon. S. Gilmer Sparger, spent the week-end at his home here, and rested from the strenuous dutie3 of another week in R.-deigh. Mr. Sparger. who was ir.i:;- viewed by a represent'dive It* Reporter, slated that .!;o Gene; •' Assembly would beginning with Monday's session swing into hip.h gear in the consideration of the multiplicity of important mat ters of legislation now beginning to be pressed for hearings. The representative from Stokes looked well, but clearly showed the weight of respon sibility which he naturally feels from being pressed in'o arduous service in this assembly. He has been honored with the chairman ship of the committee on elections, while also being named as a member of several other important committees, namely, finance, education, judidary, and other minor committees. The repeal or modification o' the absentee ballot law, is a mat ter sure to engage the serious and heated deliberations of this as sembly. This law has its strong friends as well as its enemies in this legislature. The committee on 1 elections, of which Mr. Sparger is chairman, will bs heavily in fluential in quieting the com motion which is now revolving around this much mooted ques tion. The sales tax, soldiers? bonus, old age pensions unemployment insurance, liquor and beer, in creased pay for teachers and State employes, diversion of the highway funds —these are major problems which this legislature must wrestle with to say nothing of the hundreds of local and minor bills with which the law mill will be clogged from now on. Last but not least is the revenue bill, which engages the deepest thought of the best minds of the State body. Mr. Sparger is very anxious to reflect the best sentiment of the I people of Stokes on the important, legislation to be enacted within the next few weeks. He purposes at an early date—possibly in February to meet with the people at the court house and get a focus on their views and wishes concerning beneficial legislation for the citizens of Stokes. Mr. Sparger possibly will defer this Volume 62.
