JESS SMITH MOVES' J
TO NEW LOCATION
?"Come down the hill and cut down
the repair bill" is the unique slogan
adopted by the Jess A. Smith garage,
opened recently in a new home at the
foot of North Caldwell street and
Cascade avenue. Mr. Smith has been
in the garage business here for the
past several years, and has built up
a splendid patronage.
In the new place occupied by Mr.
Smith, the business has been enlarg
ed, and Shell gas and oil added to the
repair line, making it what is now
known in the auto world as "a one
stop service station."

504.14, including $163,018.27 in pre

shows in a statement. .
The 41 banks from which pay

"By the time we get it balanced, it
is too late to go anywhere."
iGOVJOT READY TO
Raleigh, Oct 14. ? Not yet is Gov
ernor Gardner convinced that the
State must be saved by convening a
special session of the General As
sembly to deal with cotton and to
bacco acreage reduction. Powerful
forces are at work on him, including
Josephus Daniels and U. Benton
Blalock, head of State and national
cooperative organizations, and the
? increasing number of states which
which have adopted the Texas plan
of reduction. But there are still
other forces .against it.
The Craven .county resolution asks
"or reduction in order to get rid of
the tenant fanner. Then, if he is
prohibited from earning a living by
law, the question is asked, what is to
become of him? If the State would
stop him from work, then the State
would be expected to feed him, if of
fered as an answer. That is one of
several angles of the problem.
DUNN'S CREEK HOME
