After 15 years as a dairyman, Jar
vis H. Allison, now a county Com
missioner, has sold his herd of 15
Guernsey cows and a bull, and will
devote all of his time to farming, he
said here this week.
Mr. Allison sold his herd to a group
of New Jersey dairymen a few weeks
He started in the dairy business
in a small way, and kept abreast of
the modern trend of dairying, and
has for the past several ;yf ars been
a producer of grade "A" milk.
Mr. Allison said that he did not
want to enlarge his herd, and that 15
cows was too much for him to look
after, together with his farm duties.

Mrs. Hannah Is
Of New Tax Group
Mrs. William Hannah assumed her
duties last week as state director of
the National Consumers Tax Com
mission, Inc. She will make her
headquarters in Waynesville. Nation
al headquarters are kept in Chicago.
The commission was organized by
a group of women in New England,
after which the business man of the
country became interested and since
that early group started, the commis
sion has become a national unit.
The organization is non-profit and
non-partisan and is being organized
in every section of America, with
study groups created within each
community for the purpose of giving
to the public generally as much in
formation as possible about taxes
how they are levied and expended by
local, county, state, and federal gov
ernments and how the burden of j
them is constantly decreasing the Val-j
ue of the consumer's dollar. i
This is a combined effort on the
part of business and women to make
the country sufficiently tax conscious
that it will take definite effective ac
tion toward eliminating the extrava
grance of all government spending.
Thirty-one states are now repre
sented by some outstanding woman
from each state as a member of th
National committee. Mrs. Rufus L.
Allen is sei-ving from North Carolina.
Fifteen states are now in active' work
of organization with prominent wom
en in each state functioning as a di
! ctor. Local units with local chair
man and local executives arc begin
ning an active study of taxes.
Mrs. Hannah's first work will be
the organization of all towns having
10,000 or more population in North
Mrs. Hannah is a graduate of the
State University and was licensed to
practice law in the state in 1925.
By training and experience anil her
familiarity with legal affairs, Mrs.
Hannah brings to the state position
all the qualifications for successful
consumation of the Tax Commission's
plans. She is the widow of the late
W. T. Hannah and the daughter-in-law
of the late Captain Wr, J. Hannah,
both prominent members of the Hay
wood County bar.

calling for an election.
It was intimated that no petitions
would be circulated until after the

The earliest an election can be had
would be about January 20th, it was
Mr. Crawford explained that he
felt that the case which just went to
the supreme court was out of the pic

a jury for a verdict to determine the
qualifications of the signers.
"My clients are sincere in their be
lief that an election on the question'
will carry, and they have been en
couraged by the court's decision," Mr.

they ought to be published, because so
many of those receiving relief do not

they find it easy to get. Full publi

opinion. I believe in relief where a
full investigation shows that the peo

for themselves, and in cases where
children are left fatherless, but we
ought to withold it from those who
could be self supporting."
