Tuesday, October 20,1936 More Confusion What is proving more coofus-ng than any other oar thing in recent yrars in this country is all this -traw sating underway all the way from a BiOylact precinct to thr biggest city in the world And the whole busmess should be stopped, including even those poOs that favor our ana. The country is going to have an election an Tues day. November 3. so why can't we be patient and wait tor thr real -farts? There are at least four na tion-wide polls underway now. not to mention the cany that are localized, and, as far as we can learn, not a single one of them agrees with the other to even a reasonable extent. Thr nearest approach to a true semblance of conditions is found in thr returns from thr South, and they vary there. The whole business is characteristic of our make up We like to tall about something that am t and skip over that which is. There are many valuable things every voter should know before hr goes to the polls next month, but hr won t find them in a life-time study of straw votes or biased propaganda No Intent To Rob Some of ihow rounlirs id\win( muory for the constructso of stair higbaay> IS or 16 years ago, ?n hiing thrir recent claims for minds, had no intrnt of robbing anyuoe or mating a raid ua the stair h.j^i way fund The bill pasatd by thr last IrgislattlfC pro vidrd for thr appomlmrm of a cummissrun by thr gocrtuui to investigate thr claims Thr counties now burdened with a road debt created thai motorists from 4# state and all foreign countries might rule to thr enrichment of an almighty highway commission and at the expense of everyone else only ask a consid eration of thrir claims. And it is honestly brhrvrd that if they are shown they have recriced a square deal then the ciamanis will be quiet But before thr commission even offers its prelimi nary findings, cries of robbery, raiding, stealing, fool ish actions are heard from those whose property is not burdened with road debt or those who Ihrr in those counties where the highway comnwxsnw was bug tacd and mortgaged to the hdt before a single penny was idvancrd to pron?>tr a road program. For thr sake of continuing a highway program thai is apparently devoid of sound reasoning, there are those who would let even widows and orphans lose their hemes, their property and everything rise Look at the psopuaed *2.000.000 ????rafl bridge across Albemarle Sowd. II that project caa be justified, thea all the rtaima, ngiiifcig of ahethear they ate for mooes spent am pig paths m a far-off backwoods should be paid without aa law irigitmn by the gw Tfaeie have been too many political roods built in this state. Too many habs have been formed around ably every foot of cuoctete poured in North Carolina was justified, bat tbe facta that woaid support that action are foreign to moot people, and the foremost idea in tbe minds of many is that tbe great highway commission of this stale is about to totter and tall from its own great strength. That some of tbe pres ent highway commission heads and some of tbe com missiri numbers itamfd be impeached there is no doubt in tbe minds of many people. Toward this end tbe people are amiimsly awaiting a **"" in the ap pointive power and tbe convening of tbe legislature. Martin Coimty may have more than its share of roads, but Martin people could not help it if a high way commisaiooer boih roads ltuuog.li their county to serve principally markets and merchants in his dis trict. Parallel roads, hardly more than two or three miles apart, in other counties night hare been and still may be necessary, bat tbe system seems a bit cockeyed to those people who pay taxes to bump and krw-gear over poorly kept dirt roads. If North Carolina s highway commission can take over the debts of those who financed bridges to semi publK beaches, and if the commission can build a two-million dollar bridge where the people don't even want it. then why in tbe name of rrrnmuui sense can't the claims of several comities to refunds be investi gated without tbe claimants being called robbers and raifcn? How Will They Vote? Smtlkfirld HrraU The Republican party in this campaign has appar ently adopted a method of campaigning which is in keeping with its political philosophy. The little fel low has abandoned the stump entirely, while the party pins its faith to a few big guns, such as Thomas Dix nn and Frank Knox. These lords of politics hand down the brand of doctrine pretty much as the lords of always disbursed prosperity to the nation. So far as appearances go, the average Republican politicians is as jealous for his party as in former cam paigns and yet the change of tunditvsis under the New Lira] is so striking as to behe the position thev base taken. At their tprnkiagt and caucuses, they appear, as a rule, neatly and well dressed, with ev ery indication of having come from comfortable, hap py homes. They attend these meetings in new auto tries, and not a Hoover cart is m sight. This is a vast contrast to the picture they made four years ago. Their raiment, along with that worn by the adherents of every politiral faith, then bespoke the cruelties of the then existent depression, and. worse Mil, their troubled laces wore a look of despair over lost bomrs and debts they could not pay. f KtKio has never played upon a stranger trait of human character than that exhibited by the Repub lican I'arty, which fights the very source from which its members have derived new hope and a new fife. I'arty loyalty is a strong and strange forte which car ries men far from common w i~t reason. But the tittle fellows are saying little, it is the big guns who are doing most of the tatting How will the little iellows vote?
