B ALE Y SAYS
SOUTH IS RIPE
FOR GOP DRIVE
Jim Baley of Marshall, candidate
for chairman of the Republican State
Executive committee, who was In1
Charlotte Monday in the interest of
his campaign for that office, believes,
he said, that the fluid political con
dition in the South today offers the
best opportunity in many years for
building a two-party system tit this
section. . ,
not,'; he : aaid "a partisan
matter t consider where we are go
ing, tn my opinion, we have reached
the point in this country at which
we must make an immediate decision
as to whether we shall go headlong
down the road to the kind ef social
iam England baa, or stop where We
are ' and consolidate our sockl 'and
economic position befor' basing any
farther along that road.

have done enough scouting in the so
