THE WAYNESVIIXE MOUNTAINEER
On The Tar Heel Front
By Robert A. Erwin and Frances McKusick
Washington The independent
businessmen won two important
decisions in Washington last week
which should make the "little fel
low" heave a deep sigh of relief,
roll up his shirt sleeves and settle
down to the prospect of "back to
normal" or better business. As
usual, members of the North Car
olina congressional delegation
were not caught napping over the
plight of the little businessman,
and partially because of their ef
forts, at least, things have been
One of these victories directly
affects only one type of business:
the meat packer who sells only
within his state. However, the
final passage of the bill allowing
Federal inspection for intra-state
selling meat packers indirectly
aids the farmer, the employees at
the meat packing establishments,
and Uncle Sam.
The other victory for small
business lies in the amendment to
the "Back door Trucking" 75 per
cent of capacity return load before
they left the home plant, if their
destination was more that 15 miles
Last week North Carolina con
gressmen frantically protested to
the War Production Board against
this order, which was to be effective
June 1. They explained its enforce
men would result in an epidemic
of bankruptcies of small manufac
turers throughout the state, or at
best, the closing of their doors.
It took them only a day to pursuade
the WPB that the effective date of
the order should be deferred until
July 1, giving the officials in that
agency an opportunity to amend
On Thursday of last week, John
Ci Baskervill, Secretary of the
Lenoir Chamber of Commerce and
former newspaperman, came back
from the Office of Defense -Transportation
with a happy smile and
the announcement that the ODT
had assured him the order would
be definitely amended to allow
the continuance of trucking for
the small manufacturer. Mr. Bas
kervill believes some zoning plan
will be enforced, extending the
mileage in which a truck may trav
el without the "return load regu
lation" of from 50 to 100 miles.
Mr. Baskervill was particularly
concerned about this order, and
therefore correspondingly pleased
with promises of amendment be
cause this mandate constituted a
serious threat to Lenoir furniture
interests, Because of the lack of
convenient rail facilities, the Lenoir
furniture and hardware manufac
turers have their wood brought
in from the forests, from distances
more than 15 miles away, by truck.
Senator Josiah W. Bailey was
assured by Price Administrator
Leon Henderson that tobacco farm
ers who carry their crops to mark
et in a trailor will be allowed sup
plementary gasoline rations for
And there is still more good
news for the farmers. The Agri
cultural Adjustment Administra
tion has assured North Carolina
representatives in congress that
the much-needed parity checks
wil be forthcoming within the next
Reason for the delays this year
are: the new requirement of clear
ance through Nashville, Tenn.; the
combining of parity and soil con
servation payments into one check;
and the confusion resulting from
the movement of part of the agency
from Washington to other sec
tions of the country.
The AAA is as sorry about the
delay as anyone,' and it has
ordered its field offices to work
overtime if necessary to get the
applications through, Right now,
payment vouchers are being clear
ed at the rate of 10,000 a week in
North, Carolina. About 22,000
vouchers remain for final approval.
Some folks are still wondering
why Richard Tilman Fountain, the
Rocky Mount rambler, tackled
Senator Josiah William Bailey in
his recent primary. Other than
wanting to be senator, some of our
informants tell us that Fountain
was good and sore at Governor
J. Melville Broughton.
So the story goes, Fountain was

To Avenge Loss of 1,000 Men
Here are some of the 1,000 stalwart sons of Texas, swearing to avenge
the 1,000 men who were lost with the U. S. cruiser Houaton in the
battle of Java, as they turned out for a mass Induction ceremony in
Houston, Texas. President Roosevelt sent a personal message to be
read before the volunteers. Rear Adm. William Alexander Glassford,
commander of American naval forces in the Java action took charge
of the ceremony and may be seen with other officers on the platform on

and after Broughton had won, he
anticipated collaboration with the
governor and called on him in

Fountain didn't like this treat
