NEW BILLS PILED UP
DURING PAST WEEK
Moat Imptftnt Ratified Wau
the Road BUI? Other.
Brevard Netui Bureau
RaleigK, March S5
Although new bills are slowing
down, the number is still too large
for the time and both houses named
calendar committees to pass on
whether or not the later one should
be considered. So far about 1610
bills have been introduced, 490 in
the Senate and 1120 hi the Souse.
Of this number 815 have been enacted
into law, 158 Senate and 467 House
bills. The local bills bear a ratio of
about five to one for the public bills.
Approximately 100 new bills were
introduced last week, 80 in the House
and 40 in the Senate. Bills ratified
last week and now law, reached 113,
or 36 Senate and 77 House bills. Of
the total ratified last week, 94 were
local and 19 were more general.
Most important of those ratified
yas the road bill, providing a new
highway commission and taking over
county roads by the State. Two re
lated permit two or more counties to j
establish district prison farms and 1
hospital-homes, in lieu of separate
jails and county homes. Another pro
vides a closer check on pension rolls
by clerks of court and registers of
Jeeds in counties. Another law re
quires irresponsible drivers to pro
vide insurance, by which damages
-nay be collected. Another requires
:hat paupers have no claim on this
state unless they have lived here three
fears, or were self-supporting on ar
Other laws enacted are an amend- j
nent to the state game law; provid- ?
ng for investigation coasts, ports
ind waterways of the state; estab
ishing the manner of advertising tax
iales; defining the right to perform
in autopsy; permit newspaper carrier
joys to work between 5 A.M. and 8
?.M.; regulate sales of real and per
lonal property by receivers ; validat- ,
ng sales of property made by liquid
iting agents or Corporation Commis
,ion for insolvent banks; to provide a
inking fund for the Industrial Farm
Colony for Women.
IS LATEST CHARGE
Said That Power, Utility and
Tobacco Have Lined Up
hrvard News Bureau
ialeigh, March 25
A movement, described- us sinister,
s said to have been forming and
eached a head the past week. It is
ailed a combination of the power,
itility, tobacco and railroad interests
vith the so-called MacLean forces to
mt over the general sales tax pro
losal to finance the State-operated
ix months term. The general sales
ax, estimated to raise $9,000,000,
vould cost an average of about $3 a
>erson a year, which, multiplied by
he population of any county, will
five the approximate additional
imount that county will pay for
ichool support, indirectly. In many
if the counties it would be twice the
imount that would be received
hrough operation of the MacLean
)lan, the statisticians figure.
Such an alignment, ?Observers say,
s passing strange ? a sort of lion and
amb status. It has caused ' many
juestions to be asked. Apparently,
tlso, it is causing a sort of re-align
nent of forces. Seemingly there is a
ihift toward the school plan embodied
n the bill introduced the past week
)y Chairman John H. Folger, of the
Senate Education committee, and
)thers, which bill provides a $10,000,
)00 school fund, $8,200,000 for the
six months term and $1,800,000 for
;xtended term: This, experienced
school men say, will give more relief
than the MacLean plan accompanied
by the $9,000,000 sales tax, although
it is an indirect tax. The Folger plan
carries no sales tax, but wouid neces
sitate $3,500,000 more than is now
provided, coming from power, tobac
co, foreign corporations and probably
an increase in the income tax.
The more bankers that adopt the
Crouch plan of no loans to farmers
who refuse to pledge themselves to
raise com enough to feed their stock,
the better year South Carolina -will
next autumn find at the reckoning
she has had.

Amid scenes of old Spain the mem- 1
bers of the Senior cites of Brevard
High School were delightfully enter
tained by the Juniors last Friday eve- ,
ning in the Masonic hall rooms, the
occasion being the annual banquet
tendered the graduating clasB.
An elaborate setting of Spanish sug
gestion was cleverly carried through
the entirety of the evening entertain
ment. Intettwined streamers of red,
black and yellow were draped grace
fully from chandeliers, the base of the
decoration consisting of evergreens
and ferns. The waitresses were dainty
in Spanish frocks. I.
I The banquet table presented a pret
ty picture. Long tapering candles of
yellow - placed in re3 rosettes, alter
nating with bowls of jonquil and daf- .
fodil, with the soft glow of the candle .
light added much to the festivity of :
the affair. Covers were laid for one I
hundred. At each place a handpaint
1 ed Spanish fan, the program and ?
menu printed inside and placecards ?
with handpainted Spanish scenes em- 1
phasized the effectiveness of the set- !
ting. ? ;
Joe Black, toastmaster, extended j '
greetings to the guests, the response 1
being made by Miss Marie Case. A !
song dedicated to the Seniors was '
sung by the Juniors in unison. A i
toast to the faculty by Miss Louise j
Gillespie, a toast to the Senior Class |
by Winifred Nicholson with responses
to each, a song, and a toast to the i
high school'by Wilson Middleton fol- r
lowed by another song constituted the j
program, all of which was very en- j
joyable. The ^program was inter- '
spersed with piano numbers by Miss
Eva Call and Mr. Alvin Moore with
vocal numbers by the latter. j

SHORT BALLOT LAW
HAS NO SHOW NOW
Left to Become Part of Ncv
Constitution, if Such Is
Brevard News Bureau
Raleigh, March 25
The "short ballot" will not ?et
over this time. The bill providing
tor the reorganization of the Depart
ment of Agriculture was passed bjr
the House after it had changed tfci
bill to make the commissioner elect
ive, rathei than appointive. The bill
to have the Corporation Commisxioa
members appointed rather than elect
ed was tabled by its author. The pm
:hasing agent bill, which would taka
iway a part of the duties of tte
Commissioner of Labor and Printing
s half over and may pass. The bS
a reorganize that Department into *
Department of Labor, is in the hopper
ind may or may not pass.
Governor Gardner's bills, one to re
irganize the Department of Agricttf
ure, the other to reorganize the Cor
>oration Commission, did not carry i?
hem the short ballot provision? that
he Governor appoint the officials.
That was aided by the committees.
Jis Department of Labor bill do?s
arry, that feature, since the commit
ees added it to the other bills. Go?
rpor Gardner favors the short ballot,
mt he believes it should be provided
n the Constitution, so each succeedi
ng General Assembly could not
hange it. He will doubtless ask that
t be included in the amendments tc

bandoned, of calling a Constito
