DEMOCRATS SWEEP NATION
___:_____
DEMOCRATS
MAY LEAD
CONGRESS
Gain 8 In Senate and 46
In House In National
Landslide
The Democratic party gained
eight seats in the United States
Senate in Tuesday’s election,
While the Republican party
gained only one. Twenty De
mocratic Senators were swept
into office. Th eRepublicans 13.
The present tabulation of the votes
shows that the Republicans nold 47
seats in the Senate and the Demo
crats 46. Two seats are in doubt, and
with the returns still coming in, in
dicating that in some states the De
mocrats are leading in Republican
strongholds, it is likely that the De
mocratic party may gain control of
the upper house.
The political make-up of the next
Senate is:
Holdovers—Republicans, 34; Demo
crats, 26; Farmer-Labor, 1.
Elected—Republican 13; Democrats,
20.
Gains—Republicans, 1; Democrats,
S.
In doubt—Two.
In their most determined assault on
the 12-year-old Republican domina
tion of the House, the Democrats won
210 of the 435 seats and were leading
in the six Kentucky Republican dis
tricts unreported. But it was the
Farmer-Labor candidates who were
challenging the Republican incum
bents in the other two doubtful dis
tricts, both in Minnesota.
With the six Kentucky Districts and
the two Minnesota districts missing
the coant stood:
Republican, 215. Democrats, 210.
Independent Republicans, 1. Farmer
Labor, 1. Doubtful, 8. Democratic
gains, 46. Republican gain, 1.
Missouri Democrats won back the
six seats lost in the Hoover landslide
of two years ago.
The Democratic upsets extended
from Connecticut to Oregon, with
Pennsylvania contributing three.
The Democratic uprising broke out
in all sections of the country ,and in
spots most unexpected by leaders of
both parties.
For the first time in the twelve
years of Republican domination of
Congress the Democrats have come
within reach of power. This gives
President Hoover a new problem for
the next two years of his dministra
tion.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was re-elect
slide. He carried with him the en
ed Governor of New York by a land
tire State Democratic ticket.
Democrats in Connecticut elected
Dr. Wilbur L. Cross, dean emeritus of
Yale, Governor and two or three and
perhaps four of the five representa
tives.
Senator rat Harrison ot Mississippi
was re-elected to a third consecutive
term in the U. S. Senate.
M. M. Neeley, Democrat, former
U. S. Senator from West Virginia, re
ceived 61,379 votes and his Republican
opponent, James Elwood Jones, polled
41,746.
Albert G. Ritchie, Democrat, was
re-elected Governor of Maryland for
his fourth four-year term.
In Alabama, Bankhead, Democrat,
defeated Senator Tom Heflin, Jeffer
sonian Democrat, for the U. S. Sen
ate. Viller, Democrat was elected
Governor over Locke, Jeffersonian
Democrat.
Democrats in Ohio won the guber
natorial contest by 150,000 votes, Rob
ert J. Bulkley, Democrat, “wet” de
feated Senator Roscoe McCulloch, Re
publican “dry,” for the Senate, by
an even larger majority.
In Illinois, James Hamilton Lewis,
Democrat, “wet/ ’defeated his Re
publican opponent, Mrs. Ruth Hanna
McCormick, and his Inde
pendent “dry” candidate, Mrs. Lottie
Holman O’Neil, for the U. S. Senate.
Mr. J. R. Butron, Leo Butron, John
Robinson, Evy Askew and J. F. Mayes
motored to Roy’s Camp, N. C. Satur
day and spent the whole of Sunday

PLAN DRIVE
TONIGHT
FOR HOTEL
Committee Reports Fa
vorably On Enterprise;
Hope to Raise Money
rwin Cities will have a $110,000
hotel building started here with
in thirty days after that amount
has been subscribed in stock.
These figures were reached to
day by a committee of citizens
anxious to see a hotel here and
after a visit last week by R. T.
Lipscombe, vice president of the
Guarantee Finance Corporation
of Richmond, which company
proposes to put up as much cash
as the citizens here subscribe
and finance the balance of the
amount needed.
Mr. Lipscombe spoke before the Ki
wanis Club last Thursday and explain
ed his proposition, which was outlined
in this newspaper two weeks ago
President Frank Wilson appointed a
committee to confer with Mr. Lips
combe, and Mr. J. W. Smoot, who will
have charge of the construction work
on several hotels for the corporation.
At the committee meeting, Mr.
Lipscombe was questioned closely and
after deliberation, it was the opinion
of the committee that the proposition
was feasible and *ras the only way in
which this community could hope to
get a hotel for many years.
Plans will be worked out tonight to
launch a drive for stock subscription
to the hotel enterprise with the hopes
that every man and woman in the
community, who can do so, will sub
scribe for at least one $100 share.

“Call of the Flesh”
A Novarro Winner
There are two Ramon Navarros,
apparently.
One is the whimsical comedian, full
of the joy of life, love and music. The
other is a tragic, dominant figure,
compelling in its intensity.
One sees both of these Novarros in
a single picture in “Call of the Flesh,”
the star’s latest Metro-Goldwyn-May
er picture playing at the Peoples
I Theatre Monday and Tuesday. No
varro starts as a care-free youth in
the powerful story and winds up as a
character Booth, Barrett or Mans
field might well have played. And
they could not have played it much
better.
It is the story of a Spanish opera
singer who sacrifices iove and happi
ness on the altar of fame only to find
that love is, after all, far more pow
erful than the lure of the opera. Chas.
Brabin directed the story, in which
Novarro sings operatic as well as
popular songs and gives a perform
ance that is a notable milestone in
his artistic career.
dSeeothy J**rdan is a delightful he
roine as the convent girl he loves and
Renee Adoree, a fiery creature as
Lola, the dancer, whose jealousy dogs
the pair. Ernest Torrence is the de
lightful as the old singing tutor and
Mathilde Comont injects comedy
touches as the old opera star. Nance
O’Neil is a dignified and compelling
Mother Superior and Russel Hoptor
convincing as the heroine’s brother.
Gorgeous settings, artistic camera
effects by Merrit Gerstad, and music
Herbert Stothart and Clifford Grey
add to the attractiveness of old Spain.
Dorothy Farnum wrote the story with
dialog by John Colton, famous for
“Rain” and “The Shanghai Gesture.”
B. & L. Speaker
Mr. O. K. LaRoque. Deputy Insur
ance Commissioner in charge of B. &.
L .for North Carolina, has accepted
the invitation of S. J. Bounds, Secre
tary of the Rosemary Building and
Loan Association to meet with them
and address the directors of the Rose
mary Association.
Mr. LaRoque is the best informed
man in the State on Building and
Loan matters and is an able and
forceful speaker. Mr. Bounds plans
to have him speak at a supper and
will invite the directors of the Roa
noke Rapids and Weldon Associations
to participate.
Friday afternoon, Oct. 31, from 3
to 5, the home of Dr. and Mrs. J.
Frank West was the scene of a lovely
childrens party, the occasion being
the celebration of the fifth birthday
of the little daughter, Martha Jane.
The hall, living room and dining room
were decorated with fall leaves and
flowers. A lovely birthday cake
holding five lighted candles served as
center piece for the dining table. Jack
o’lanterns and witches added a note
of mystery to the surroundings. The
youngsters played games with Mrs.
Charles Webb directing. Refresh
ments consisting of ice cream and
:akes, dainty little baskets filled with
;andy served as favors and were pre
sented to the following as they were
eaving, Frank Hawley, Harry Weath

mocratic majority for the first time
since 1894. Klernersville, long Re
publican, gave all Democrats a ma
jority.

against Bailey in the primary, but
