Scott Given Majority of Votes
In Township; Johnson Is Second
Albright Runs Close
Third to Johnson;
Broughton Is Leader
Kerr Scott, farmer-businessman
candidate for Governor of North
Carolina, received a majority of
votes cast in Little River Township
last Saturday, in what had been
expected to be one of the day’s
closest election contests.
Scott a total of 493
votes in the township, against 238
for State Treasurer Charles M.
Johnson and 207 for R. Mayne Al
bright. Oscar Barker received 10
ballots; W. F. Stanley, Sr., the man
who dreamed he would be goven
or, received 2 votes; and Olla Ray
Boyd, the Pinetown hog farmer
who runs for govenor every 4
years as a publicity stunt, received
one vote.
The size of the Scott majority—
the former Commissioner of Agri
culture received 35 more votes
locally than all other gubernatorial
candidates combined —surprised
many observers, but the biggest
surprise of the day was the fact
R. Mayne Albright polled only 31
fewer votes than did Charles M.
Johnson, the candidate of the so
called “machine.” Scott carried
Wake County with Albright sec
ond, Johnson third.
Former Governor J. Melville
wiio_ ojj£§- .taught
school in Bunn and later was a
judge of the Zebulon Recorders
Court, piled up a substantial ma
jority in the Zebulon precinct, al
though Senator W. B. Umstead led
by a few votes in the Mitchell’s
Mill balloting.
Every other candidate for state
office who led throughout North
Carolina also carried Little River
Township. Pat Taylor led Dan
Tompkins for lieutenant governor;
Thad Eure had a decisive margin
over John Armstrong, who was
backed by the “machine” for Sec
retary of State; Henry Lee Brid
ges, former Zebulon resident, led
Charles Miller for State Auditor;
Brandon Hodges defeated James
B. Vogler, a Johnson supporter,
for State Treasurer.

Local Rotary Club
Hears Gilmer Parrish
A very interesting discussion on
the life of a Baptist minister was
brought to the Zebulon Rotary
Club last Friday night by Rev.

sized that a sermon on Sunday
