On The Tar Heel Front
By Robert A. Erwin and Frances McEosick
"Who ever heard of a North
Carolinian being elected to Con
gress from Virginia? Don't be
foolish, Windser. You'll just be
sticking your neck out if you run."
This was the advice William C.
(Buck) Harris, of Raleigh, ranking
Superior Court Judge in North
Carolina, gave his newspaperman
brother when Winder told him the
Norfolk, Va., Democrats wanted
him to be their candidate to fill
the vacancy created by the resigna
tion of Representative Colgate W.
Darcen, Jr., who entered the Vir
ginia gubernatorial race and sub
sequently was elected and took
office as governor.
But Winder Harris disregarded
his brother's advice, his own bet
ter judgment, was persuaded to
run for Congress and was elected
with very little trouble. Now this
dynamic, energetic, keen-minded
representative from Virginia's Sec
ond District is called "our extra
Congressman" by the Tar Heel
delegation in Congress.
"After I came to Washington,
I received a letter from one of
my staunchest supporters in Nor
folk who said she 'just wanted to
remind me I was representing her
district, not some place in North
Carolina, " Mr. Harris said laugh
ingly in an interview in his office

Winder Harris was a little sur
prised himself when he was drag
ged from his chair of managing ed
itor of the Virginian-Pilot to f
seat in Congress.
"You see, I'm not even a poli
tician, he protested. "A newspa

He did have time, however, to be

editor on The Raleigh Times, his
main duties being to promote a
bush-leagae baseball team. At
that time, however, he became in
occulated with printer's ink, and
this newspaper malady clung to
him until 1914, when he was elect
ed to Congress.
Mr. Harris has served a goodly
number of Tar Heel papers. Be
sides The Raleigh Times, he has
held executive jobs in the editorial
departments of The Charlotte
News, the Charlotte Observer, the
United Press out of Raleigh and
the old Charlotte Evening Chron

Norfolk Legder-Dispatch and the
Newport News ' paper. He was

The period of peak egg produc

suggests that farm flock owners
keen a clean watch for "loafers"
in their hen house.
A laying bird will consume from
7 to IVt pounds of feed per month,
and at present prices the hen must
produce from 12 to 15 eggs per
month to meet the feed cost alone.
"Chickens normally lay more
eggs during February, March and
April than at any other time of the
year." Prof. Dearstyne said. "At
this season of the year the poul
tryman makes his greatest re

"My brothers tell me I'm not

he said. "There were eight boys

Outspoken, and straight-f rom

Mr. Weaver also was optimistic
over securing transfer of a non-

having been given the run-around
for a while, he said Federal officials
had assured him "inspectors found
