could be termed ‘‘For Value Re

1. For values received I shall

“Soon after the American Legion

“The distribution of the pop-

General assembly adjourned in

The question which gained the
spotlight was whether or not
sale and possession of liquor
would be legalized in North Car

sue by the general assembly is
considered as unsatisfactory to
the wets as to the drya.
Several measures dealing with
state-wide legalization of liquor
were killed and in the last days
of the more or less hectic session
local bills were passed allowing
17 counties, most of ^hich He in

endums on the question of liquor
The revenue hill providing a
three per cent sales tax was fin

raise less money than appropri

force except for the tact that
no exemptions will be allowed
on sale of staple foods, with the
single exception of milk.

made for substantial increases in
