Austin Gaddy, 24, white youth of ^
Cameron, was instantly killed last |
Saturday night when the Ford sedan
in which he was ridiiig with two j
companions collided with an Express
Agency truck driven by Wimberly'
Bowman of Aberdeen. |
The accident occurred near the;
Lakeview Filling Station at Lakeview. j
The Ford proceeding north on U. S.
Highway No. 1, apparently at a high
rate of speed, struck the truck with
terrific force and was almost com
pletely demonished, and the truck was
upset. Gaddy was thrown from the
car and was instantly killed. His two
companions, Carl Maples and Dave
Cameron, were seriously injured, but
were able to be sent home after re
ceiving first aid at Dr. Rosser’s of
fice in Vass. Maples was badly cut
about the face and was too ill to at
tend an inquest, the next day, and the
inquest was in progress as The Pilot
went to press Friday noon.
Both Coroner Fry and Sheriff Mc
Donald were on the scene of the ac
cident a short time after it occurred
and conducted an investigation. No
one was held in connection with the
Gaddy and’his companions were re
turning home after taking Dave Cam
eron and his wife and sick baby to
the Moore County Hospital.
'Gaddy was a son of the late Jack
Gaddy of Cameron. He is survived by
his mother, six brothers and two sis
ters. The funeral was held at his
mother's home Monday afternoon and
interment followed in Johnson’s

In an address delivered before the
North Carolina Bankers Association
at Pinehurst yesterday Speaker Hen
ry Rainey of the House of Represen
tatives predicted the future of Amer
ican political life will be marked by
rule of "merged political parties”
which merged to elect President
Describing efforts of the present
administration aS aimed at restoring
buj'ing power, Rainey asserted Demo
crats and Republicans in congress are
“going along together doing things
they never thought they would do
as party men” due to the fact that
the nation is in a new era.
“We arc on our way,” he asserted.
“Political parties merged in 1932 to
get out of the position the country
was in. That was not a Republican
victory and not a Democratic vic
tory. It was a victory of the merged
“You will never see another align
ment of the old parties like you have
seen. Regardless of the name it is
known by, there will be hundreds of
years of time which will see our po
litical destiny held in a merged
"There will be other parties, too,
but they will be parties of the ex
treme left. Communists will be in
them, and more important in them
than ever before. The groups of the
extreme left will include those who
believe in tearing down what we have
and in inflating the currency.
"Merged parties will take this
country down the wide straight road
which means perpetuity of this great
government through centuries to
Comparing government “underwrit
ing” of business, farms, homes, and
other agencies through “New Deal"
agencies, Mr. Rainey said the gov
ernment took securities when it dis
bursed the major part of its funds.
Te asserted that if securities taken as
collateral for loans are balanced
against the debt of the nation, the
debt increased only two billion dollars
in 13 months of the Roosevelt admin
istration and the revaluation of gold
gave a profit of more than two bil
lions. giving a net profit for 13
months of $710,000,000 instead of a
tremendous deficit as some say.
The Speaker predicted that the
United States would not materially
inflate its currency, but pointed out
that without violating laws or eco
nomics it could issue eight or ten
billions of paper money against gold
it has on hand.
President Roosevelt, he said, is at
the driver’s seat in a machine erected
on a bridge of twenty "great recon
struction acts” and is moving the
machine forward, though this is a
danger period. He said the bridge
would prove strong enough to hold
up the mammoth machine if the peo
ple of the nation back the President.
Rainey flatly predicted the reval
uation of the franc within three
months, after poinung out that
American revalued gold and could
expand that value.
“They must do it in France," he
asserted. "They must revalue the
franc within three months. There are
more scandals of a financial nature
coming out over there t'han have in

The ruial lehabilitation program
in Moore county, of which little has
been .said due to the fact that it is
still in its infancy, bids fair to be
by far the most worth-while and the
most interesting plan yet \mdertaken
for the relief of the destitute. The
program provides for no straight
hand-outs, but each person will be
required to return to the government

Sixteen mules have been shipped
into the county from Atlanta for use
in farm work. Upon their arrival, they
were unloaded r.t Aberdeen and sent
to the stables at Pinehurst for a rest
of a day or two, and from there they
are taken to their new home on
Moore county farms. Five of the
number are “floating mules,” a term
which requires an explanation. These
five were let out to five men who are

place to place to plow gardens and
