Works Commission, was named full
chairman Saturday, taking the place
of Chairman E. B. Jeftress, resigned,
who was stricken in August. Mr. Jef-
fress has made a remarkable recov
ery so far, but his condition was such
that he was not expected to be able
to resume his duties, certainly for a
long time. He was kept as chairman
for more than four months since he
was stricken, receiving his full sal
ary. It is understood that he carried
health and accident Insui’ance which
is now paying him a good sum, ap
proaching but probably not as much
as his salary.
The commission, meeting January
10, is expected to name an assistant
chairman in order to be prepared in
case accident or misfortune should
befall the chairman at any time. This
would provide a man familiar with
the work and ready to take over the
job if it should become necessary.
The commission is also expected to
name a State highway engineer to
succeed the late John D. Waldrop,
killed in an accident nearly five
months ago. W. Vance Baise, assist
ant, has been acting engineer and is
considered a likely successor. R. G.

Firn Fighting Program
Legislation for a State-wide forest
fire fighting program will be asked
of the 1935 General Assembly by the
Conservation and Development de
partment. At present a county may
make appropriation and get an ad
ditional federal fund for fire-fighting.
Only 44 counties are now cooperating,
and they may drop out each two
years, when new commissioners are
elected, thus losin.s the start made in
equipment and supplies, as well as
trained fighters. It is unfair to coun
ties with fire control when coun
ties without it allow fires to cross
county lines, it is pointed out. This
protection should be on a State-wide
basis, it is held by the department. It
estimates that $239,000 a year would
be needed, the fund-s to be secured as
follows: federal, $75,000; from the
100 counties, $80,000; private land
owners, $10,000; ten per cent of
State game and fish funds, $15,000,
and State appropriations, $59,000.
For Cheaper Fertilizer
Reductions in the prices of ferti
lizers used by North Carolinians, who
consume about one-seventh of the
commercial fertilizer used in the na
tion, is the aim of a movement made
last week by Governor Ehringhaus.
A hearing is to be held in Washing
ton January 9th with the NRA which
will receive testimony fgr or against
the price fixing feature of all codes
and with regard to alleged excessive
prices. Governor Ehringhaus has con
ferred with Washington officials and
has asked Commissioner of Agricul
ture William A. Graham to compile
data in fertilizer prices to be pre
sented at the hearing. Governor Eh
ringhaus cites that the 1934 prices
of fertilizer were considerably higher
than 1933 prices and is seeking to
bring out information which will show
any unreasonableness of this increase
in price. He is familiar with the prac-

The New Ford V- 8 for 1935 is
the biggest and roomiest Ford
car ever built. It is a strik

But most important of all it
is especially designed to give
you smooth, easy riding over
all kinds of roads —"a front-
seat ride for back-seat riders."
This e^se of riding is
achieved by the use of three basic prin

ease of handling. You can take curves
with greater safety.
There are many new features in the
Ford V-8 for 1935 which make the car
still easier to drive. New brakes give
more power for stopping quickly with
far less foot pressure on the pedal.
A new type of easy-pressure clutch
employs centrifugal force to increase ef
ficiency at higher speeds. New steering
mechanism makes the car still easier
to handle. New, wider, roomier seats.
The New Ford V- 8 for 1935 retains the
V-8 engine which has demonstrated its
dependability and economy in the ser
vice of more than a million owners.
There are refinements, but no change in
basic design. You buy pre
mium performance when you
buy this Ford V-8—full 85
horsepower and capable of 80
miles an hour. All Ford V-8
cars for 1935 come equipped
with Safety Glass throughout
at no additional cost.
We invite you to see this
New Ford V- 8 for 1935 at the
showrooms of Ford dealers.
You will want to ride in it —
to drive it yourself. You will find it a
new experience in motoring.
