OCR RALEIGH LETTER.
(By M. L. Shipman.)
Raleigh, March L Announcement
of "Bob" Reynolds's candidacy for
the United Statei Senate against
Senator Lee S. Overman, the ar
rangements for and against a iur.
vey of women in industry in North
'Carolina, the sudden emergence into
the limelight again of the Rodger
killing at Christina and a number of
I other matters absorbed the attention
of the Capital this week. Though
t administration circles brought forth
I no outstanding news, the develop-
menu around the capital with the ad'
! ministration as a common center were
I sufficient to hold interest.
R. R. Reynolds, an Asheville attor
ney, announced for the Senate to
succeed Lee Overman wKose term ex
pires this year. Reynolds frankly
stated he was soliciting votes and
would do his best if elected, but would
take a licking with good grace if ha
had to. Since Overman will make a
run for the office, it appears the ma
jor election of June will be contested.
The Child Welfare Commission and
the State Federation of Labor di
vided attention with Governor Mc-i
Lean this yeek in the proposed sur
vey of working condition of women
in industry. The Governor issued
and the reiterated twice a statement
that he would not order a survey of
the status of women workers until
facts were presented to him showing
that there were violations of law
with respect to their treatment. The
president of the State Federation of
Labor asked the Governor to order a
survey and alleged "exploitation of
women in industry was at its height
in North Carolina." The Child Wel
fare Commission declared an inves-
! fixation was not within its scope,
i At the end of the week the status of
j the matter was unchanged and the
j prospect of a survey appeared dim
unless the Governor received actual
facts involving specific cases on which
to base an order for a survey.
"Who killed Preston Rodgcrs?" a
question which agitated Raleigh dur-
ing January may be answered or at
least it again will be a question up
permost in the minds of the people.
The Wake county grand jury pre
sented to the solicitor Saturday a
presentment against three women
who were present when the boy was
mysteriously killed at his mother's
home on December 31. These threa
women had been acquitted of guilt by
the. coroners' jury but it is under-,
stood new evidence was presented to
the grand jury on which it based its
presentment. Under the law th so
licitor will now draw bills of indict
ment and present them to the grand
jury this week and it will be up to
that body to decide whether the !orm
al indictments will be reti-rned in
which case the women would go to
trial at the term of ci-.mh'al court
which opened here this wee!;. The
women named are Mia. Preston
Rodgers, the boy's mother; Mr.i. Bon
nie Haste, a beauty shop proprirtov
;.nd Lulitn Clarke, a cousin of the
buy. The killing took place after a
"wild party" at the home "f Mrs.
Chiefs of poljce and sheriffs of the
: .ate were criticised in the report o
Deputy Wurden Honeycutt of State
Prison made public during the week.
The deputy warden said the law re
quired the sheriffs and chiefs to fin
gerprint prisoners and file fingerprints
with the Prison Bureau of Identifica
tion, but only six had kept the law.
Rex L. Farmer of Wilson and Ottis
W. Duke of Greensboro will not pine,
tice law in North Carolina. The Su
preme Court barred them from prac
tice after they had passed the men
tal examination. The ground for
burring them was that they were not
of sufficient good character for ad
mission to the profession. The opin
ion was the most far reaching of its
kind ever handed down for it set
normal limits within prospective at
torneys must hold themselves and it
has been described as an attempt to
rid the legal profession of men devoid
of character and shysters by not ad
mitting them to practice. Charges
against both men had been filed.
State Fair Week will be a big
Homecoming Week this year, but
there will be no fair. Instead there
will be big auction sale of the fair
site which will be disposed of and a
new site bought so that the fair eaa
pay off its debts and start in 1927
with a balance to its credit The
mote also will allow Raleigh room to
expand to the west which baa been
prevented by the location at the fair.
Ministers will have to pay Income
tax on house rent which they escape
by virtue of being furnished resi
dences by the churches. The amount
of rent escaped must be added in as
income and taxes paid thereon.

partment of Agriculture has started
comprehensive experiments in straw
berry culture on the Statesville and

ing a different kind of fertilization.

sults obtained from time to time.

Prof. C. B. Williams of the State

izer recommendations for the differ

izer specialists. Mr. Williams has
already distributed more than 10,000 ,
of these folders from his office at

Another "postponment" is noted in

State radio station are said to be
"almost complete," and he is now
