Stimulus was lent to the Southern
' Pines Library’s campaign for funds
by the Chamber of Commerce at its
, Tuesday meeting at Highland Lodge,
the directors passing a resolution to
tide the library over its current fi
nancial difficulties, Struthers Burt
explained that the needs of the li
brary are only around SI.200 a year
and stated this should not be dilfi-
cult to raise if the Chamber would
lend a hand. A committee was ap-
pi'iuted to join with a committee
from the Library board to solicit
The value of the library to the
community was stressed by several
.speakers, and it was agreed that its
j kiss for lack of support would be
a severe blow to the town, especially
winter residents and school children
i who use the library a great deal. It
I is believed that the response to the
I request for contributions toward the
I support of the institution will be gen
erous, now that its trustees have
: made known the financial condition.
A meeting of school lunch room
i managers and cooks was held in the

I tiv,n agent on last Saturday, at which
time a demonstration in lunch prepa-
j ration was given. There was a fine
I attendance, every school in the coun-
I ty planning to serve lunches being
represented except one.

Motorists of North Carolina are
bearing a.s their direct share of the
State’s tax burden, 52 1-2 percent of
the entire revenue of the St^ite from
tax sources, an analysis of the fig
ures of the State’s revenue for the
fiscal year 1933-34 reveals. This is
levied directly against them as mo
torists, and does not contain any of
the taxes they pay in common with
the rest of the citizens of the state.
Gasoline taxes are the largest sin
gle source of revenue to the State,
this analysis shows, contributing
33.9 percent of the entire tax reve
nue. Next in order come motor vehi
cle registrations at 14.9 percent, fran
chise taxes at 14.4 percent, income
taxes at 13.1 percent, and the gen
eral .sales tax at 12.3 jercent. Motor
ists paid altogether $23,300,568.00 tor
the privilege of using their cars, out
of a total tax revenue of $44,733,- ■
772.99, or 52.5 percent of the total. I
These figures do not include the
income taxes paid by,motor vehicle,
accessory, and gasoline dealers, and
truck and bus operators during the
year. In figures, together with
the income taxes paid by men who
use their cars in, were in
cluded .the total would
to 55 percent. And then no considera
tion is taken of the other taxes which
car owners as citizens and business
men of this state pay through other
channels just the same as any other
citizen pays them.
“The motorists of the st^te have
accepted this tax burden in the past,
because they have been assured that
the money levied directly against
them was to be used for the bene
fit on the highways of the state,” J.
L. Eelote, secretary of ;he North
Carolina Petroleum Industries Com-
Inittee, said in commenting on these
figures. “But we had a raid on these
funds at the last General A.s.sembly
and one million dollars wa.« taken
from the highway fund and put into
the general fund at the end of the
1934 fiscal year, with another million
to follow in 1935. A.s the gasoline tax
was levied for the specific purpose
of building and maintaining our roads
in North Carolina, and in view of the
fact that the State is morally obli
gated for the road bonds oiitSianding.
it seems eminently unfair and dis
criminatory against the motorist
that these funds should be diverted [
to any other purpose. If the State ^
is going to allow the Highway Com-
mi.ssion les.s money for its needs than
the taxes for those needs produce,
then the motorist should receive the
saving through a reduced gasoline
happiness of theloyal little wife but
the well-being of all her fellow-set-
tlers on the farm. Karen Merely and

.At PinchurNt
A rollicking farce-comedy of Hol
lywood life and loves is promised to
l>atrons of the Pinehurst Theatre
j Monday, November 19th, matinee
and night when the production, “365
. Nights in Hollywood,” will be shown,
' Advance reports state that the new
! film hits a fast and furious pace at
its opening and continues to roll up
laughs by the hundreds as it speeds
to a surprise conclu.sion, Alice Faye
and James Dunn are featured as a
; young visitor from Peoria with mov
ie aspirations and a picture director
who has had fame and fortune but
' also a lot of bad luck. Mitchell and
Durant, star comedy team, appear
as two adagio ice-ment who pick
Alice for a star—and then see to it
that she arrives. Grant Mitchell is
; the wily head of a phoney movie
; school, who conspires to "take” a
' rich young sucker (James Melton)
for a large-sized bank .roll.
The attraction at Pinehurst W’ed-
ncsday, Nov. 21st, matinee and night,
will be “Gambling,” starring George
M. Cohan and based on his own fa
mous mystery nielodraama of the
same title, in which he appeared on
the stage for two years. Featured in
Cohan's support are Wynne Gibson
and Dorothy Burgess. Cohan appar
ently in his own inimitable self in
the picture, the personality that made
historic successes of his many plays
and musical pieces and that brought
such magnetism to the leading role
in the Theatre Guild’s production of
Eugene G'Neill’s “Ah, Wilderness.''
In keeping with the season, the
attraction at Pinehurst on Friday,
November 23rd, matinee and night is
the rollicking, snappy tuneful, barjg-
up collegiate comedy, “College Rhy-
thm,” featuring the very notable
screen and radio stars, Lanny Ros.s,
Joe Penner and his Duck. Jack Oakie,
and the peppy Lyda Roberti. The plot
of “College Rhythm” is built around
the rivalry between the wise-cracking
Jack Oakie, and the bespectacled,
scholarly Lanny Ross on the foot
ball giidiron and in business life. The
story has to do with the colortul
hysteria of commercialized football
enthusiasm as applied to modern de
partment store management, with
gags, girl glamour, music, dancing
and cheering sections stunts.
•At .Southern i'iiies
Described as a thrilling romance
of death and danger in the skies,
“Hell in the Heavens,” starring War
ner Baxter, will be the attraction at
Southern ,Pines Monday, Tuesday,
and Wednesday, November 19, 20,
21, with a matinee on Tuesday. Star
of a long and notable series of screen
hits, including “The Cisco Kid,”
"Grand Canary,” “In Old Arizona,”
"Stand Up and Cheer” and “Paddy
The Next Best Thing,” Warner Bax
ter is said to contribute his greatest
performance in seasons to the new
Fox Film. This time he is cast as an
American flier in the Lafayette Es-
cadrille, who is promoted by death
to fi'l his captain's place. Haunted
by “the fear that he will be afraid,"
the lieutenant struggles to cambat
it. Love helps, in the form of dash
ing Conchita Montenegro. At length,
Baxter meets the “E»-'’.ron.” most dar
ing and dangerous of German aces,
in close conflict uigh above the
clouds and solves his destiiiy
through courage.
That warm, human quality which
made "Street Scene,” “The Crowd"
and other King Vidor productions
such outstanding successes is again
the distinguishing feature of "Our
Daily Bread,” the inimitable direc
tor's latest production which come.a
to Southern I'ines Thursday, Friday,
Saturday, November 22, 23, 24, with
a Saturday matinee. This tells the
story of a young city couple who

Wouldn’t you like to see the early
days of the west almost faithfully
brought to the light? Wouldn’t you
like to see the men and women who

You can, if you will go to the Sand

Tuesday evening, November 20 at

22 at 8:30. For there will be revived,
by, mind you, that startling
revelation, that great melodrama,
“Poverty Flats.”
It is the story of a rough mining
camp of the eighteen-eighties. The
story of a sweet girl in the midst of
brawling conniving villains. The story
of an upright young man with gold
in his pockets surreptitiously done
away with and the crime fastened on
the shoulders of a virtuous and honest
man. But can villainy long survive?
Can virtue go unrewarded?
Come and .see this almost blood

Your attendance will have as a
recompense the chance to applaud
the sweet and lovely heroine; the
opportunity to give the much malign

gratifying satisfaction of hissing,

cowardly, sneaking villain.
And remember this also. Your at

County Ho.spitaI will be benefited.
