Women of Bowden knew, too
that one wedding cake would not
be enough to serve all those plan
ning to attend, so they made up a
batch of individual cakes, and
everybody, especially the women,
were as flushed, excited and happy
at the wedding as jf their own dau
ghter, or son was getting married.
The romance between this girl,
who evidently knew day; of pros
perity and social position' In her
youth, and this young man, began
in November, 1945, when they met
at a party in Germany. Carr took
her home after the party, and
"then I took her home every night
I could from then on," he said. .
"Home" to Miss Laar was two
rooms in a small town In Germany,
which she shared with six others,
relatives with whom she lived since
tragedy struck her home.
All the property belonging to
her parents was a victim of bombs
and shells, and the terror, shock
and panic of Austria in the later
years of the war caused the suicide
of Mr. and Mrs. Laar, and that's
when "Leo", as she is already be
ing called in Bowden, moved to
Germany to live with relatives.
She admits now that she was al
ways hungry in those days, and
until she arrived in America May
20 knew more hungry days than
days in which she ate. Even now
she is still weak from lack of the
proper kinds of food, and enough
Of them, but it's a 100 to 1 bet that

Bennie admitted privately that
the only thing he ever remembered
stealing in his life was food, from
the army, to give to Leopoldine
while he was in Germany.
"She couldn't work in those
days, for the amount of food al
lowed her did not permit it," Mr.
Carr said. "You see, she was not
a German, therefore she did not
get as much food as the Germans,
but sorta got what was left over.
"On the days when I had to
work I would eat two meals and
carry her my third one. On days
when I didn't work, she ate two
of the meals and I ate one. And
then, every chance I got, I'd take
her other things to eat."
The love which bloomed under
such trying conditions was enough
to carry the young couple, through
two long years of waiting until
conditions permitted Miss Laar to
come to America. It took a lot of
i rea tape, airline ui-Keia ana 9 ouu
Mr. Carr had the cash at one
time, but his father's long illness
and subsequent death quickly ate
up the young ex-soldier's savings,
I and it wasn't until December of
last year that he could send her
the tickets and post the money with
immigration authorities, necessary
to assure her return in the event
the planned marriage didn't ma
terialize. Then, before his bride-to-be re
ceived the tickets, in January this
year, the law permitting prospec
tive brides to enter the country ex
pired, and there came another per
iod of waiting, while the U .S. Con
gress extended the law. But all
waiting periods cotne to an end,
and on Wednesday morning, May
19, Miss Laar boarded an airlirer
for the new world, a new husband
and a new life.
She arrived in Flushing, Long
Island, the- next afternoon, and
spent the night there. Going over
to New York City the next morning
she caught another plane for Wil
mington where Mr. Carr met her
at the airport.
No, they didn't kiss when they
first met they're both too shy for
that, especially in public. But Mr.
Carr does aamit his heart was
about to, burst when he first saw
her alter two long years.
Miss Laar was so tired and weak
after her trip that she slept in the
ear all the way from Wilmington
to her new home. And then began
the first phase of her new life
which she believes will come to
mean so much to her.
She began meeting the citizens
I of her adopted community, and
. th'.-y opened their arms and hearts
' for her, with the result that every
I day aid night preceding their wed'
aing someDoay or other was enter
taining the couple along with the
young folks of the church. It was
on such an occasion that she ate
her first "hot dog" and toasted
marshmallow. These two strictly
American food items made a big
hit with her, but she prefers her
We asked Mrs. Carr if she was
frightened by her air trip. "Yes."
Was she frightened by New York?
"Yes!" Was she frightened by the
kindness and interest displayed by
her new friends? "Oh, yes!" And it
was easy to see that the great be
wilderment she felt at such a
sudden transformation from post
war Germany to post-war America
was still with her.
Speaking a little English, she
makes the average, American
ashamed of his poor enunciation.
And it's this very fault which makes
it hard for her to converse with
her . new friends,' for everyone
knows- textbook English and East
ern Carolina dialect are miles and

- When someone ; confuses her
with an expression, or question she
daesnt undorstr.aJ, sie turns to'
her husband with "What say? " and
he usually can put it so she can
understand. It's probable that this
contributes as much as anything
to her becoming shyness. . : l
Mrs. Carr admits she would like
to go back to Austria, "if Bennie
I go," but that she's willing to make
her life here with her farmer-husband.
And, she had no disillusion
ment about what life here would
be like, for Mr. Carr had made it
perfectly plain in his letters to her
that he was not a man of wealth,
but as is usually the case, love pays
very little attention to money.
On the other hand, she was wor
ried about whether Mr. Carr still
wanted her, and. most of her let
ters, written in excellent English,
properly constructed, and gramma
tically correct, contained a desire
that he tell her, before she left
Germany, if he did not intend mar
riage. It seemed that many of her
old-country friends believed she
would meet the same fate of others
who had come to this country to
marry, and were disappointed.

where they'll live, at least until
the end of this crop year! She's

B. Radio Broadcast In State Governor's
Second Primary Race
Senator literally shows up candi
date Kerr Scott in a fashion
that hasn't been presented be
fore; speech heard throughout
state; complete text of speech.
In a statewide hookup of radio
stations, Duplin's Senator, R. D.
Johnson, of Warsaw, Tuesday night
delivered the opening gun of Char
lie M. Johnson's campaign for gov
ernor in the second primary,-to be
held June 26th. Senator Johnson
spoke for ; 15 minutes f rom the
broadcasting room of station WPTF
in Raleigh. The full text of his
speech was as follows:
I speak tonight in behalf of
the candidacy of Charles M. John
son for governor of North Carolina.
I am not related to Charlie John
son, but I am intimately acquainted
w;,h his career, his ambitions and
his desires for a greater North
Carolina. I live in a neighboring
county, and I have watched him
develop over the years from a poor
farm boy to one of our State's
outstanding citizens. He is a fine
christian gentleman, worthy of any
honor we may give him.
Last May 29, four hundred thous
and Democrats voted for their
choice for the next governor of
North Carolina. In that voting,
Charlie Johnson was the leading
candidate. He received nearly nine
thousand lucre votes than Kerr
In the minds of many people,
the high man in such a large num
ber of votss should be declared
winner. Force is added to this
thought when we recall that the
high man in the first primary in
the race for governor has ALWAYS
won out where a second primary
was called. I know Charlie John
son would not have called a second
Due to the heavy expense, worry
and trouble, many had hoped that
a second primary would be avoided.
However Mr. Scott has decided to
force a run-off and require tax
payers to spend another one hun
dred thousand dollars, just to see
if he can overtake Mr. Johnson's
lead. I know if things had been re
versed, Charlie Johnson would not
have forced a second primary on
The Democrats at their recent
State Convention reminded the
people that the paity "has given
to the people of this State an intel
ligent governme.it" for the past
Now Kerr Scott, who has been
on the payroll for many years,
undertakes to persuade the Demo
crats of Noith Carolina that he is
a Messiah come to correct all the
blunders of our democratic govern
ors since Governor Aycock. Per
haps, he is so bitter against our
state government because he is the
favored son of Alamance Repub
licans. When Kerr Scott announced for
Governor after a hastily called ral
ly at Graham the press of the state
recorded the fact that the meeting
was about evenly divided between
Democrats and Republicans. One
of the loudest voices at this gather
ing was white-haired Republican
Will R. Dixon who shouted for the
world to hear that the Republicans
were supporting Scott. Charlie
Johnson is from Pender County
that has never gone republican.
Look what Alamance did in 1946.
It went republican.
Kerr Scott is a master at rever
sing himself. He has changed his
mind so many times that the rec
ords show him on both sides of
practically all important issues. He
opposed the North Carolina Public
Health Program and then switched
when he found it politically unwise.
He now poses as a friend of the.
merchants and civic clubs, but they
recall his vicious attacks against
them during the 1947 session of the
Kerr Scott tells us today of his
undying friendship for the tobacco
farmer. It was different in 1939
when North Carolina's tobacco
market crumbled. The situation
was desperate. It was like the mid
west in drought time. The farmers
of this State sought to keep the
markets closed until an adequate
marketing system could be worked
A large number of farmers and
their friends went to Washington,
Kerr Scott went too. The reason
for the predicament involving
North Carolina tobacco farmers was
due to over-production and the
withdrawal of large British tobacco
firms from the market The Federal
Government was seeking to steady
the market by establishing of mar
keting quotas. While every effort
was being made to get the tobacco
farmers back on their feet "TIME"
Magazine (October 9, 1939, page
58) quoted Kerr Scott on a totally
different position. Apparently
Scott was not being troubled too
much, for here is what "Time" had
to say: . . I
"William Kerr Scott suggested
sadistically that the markets ought
to be reopened, the farmers left
to squirm.' ;":.''.' '..;. 'Vi' .;:
Kerr Scott wasn't running for
Governor then Why doesn't he tell
you what he meant? : '
Now Kerr Scott Is not a new
comer to the public payroll despite
his demands for new blood. He has
been on the state, county or federal
payroll about twenty-seven out of
the last thirty yc 3, esi yet he Jfcns
the nerve to talk about Charlie
Johnson's being on the public pay
roll. While Commissioner of Agricul
ture, he traveled one hundred and
fifty thousand miles between bis
state office in Raleigh and his big
dairy farm in Alamance County,
Of course, during the war gasoline
was rationed, but Kerr Scott man
aged to keep going even though
many people at the time couldn't
wangle enough gas to attend a fu
neral. It was only natural that this
dual duty - drawing public funds
on one hand and operating his vast
dairy on the other, required him
to arrive late frequently for work
in the mornings and depart early
In the afternoons. He never moved
to Raleigh. Would he move to Ral
eigh if he were elected governor?
Scott has stated frequently that
he knew what it was to meet a
private payroll. He shouldn't have
had much trouble, drawing good
public funds while at the same
time deriving revenue from that
one thousand three hundred acre
dairy farm of his in Alamance
County. I know a lot of farmers
who wouldn't have had any trouble
with payrolls if they had been
drawing salaries from the public
and operating a large dairy farm
at the same time.
Charlie Johnson has served the
State duiing the administration of
six governors and as Treasurer dur
ing the terms of five governors. He
has handled many millions of dol
lars of the State funds carefully
and honestly. There has never been
a finger of suspicion pointed at the
conduct of the affairs of his office
until Kerr Scott started running
for governor. Charlie's is a great
record. His books are audited every
year and he has never lost a cent.
But within the past few weeks
Mr. Scott has tried to direct a
question mark at the failures of
Charlie to speculate with the
State's money. Of course, Mr. Scott
could have told you that the Treas
urer of North Carolina or any
county or city does not have the
authority to invest any funds ex
cept by specific authority of the
General Assembly, and the Gener
al Fund Investments in this' State
can only be made by authority of
the Governor and Council of
State, of which Mr. Scott has been
a member; and every dollar of the
money authorized to be invested
has been invested. Mr. Scott would
leave you to believe that no in
vestments have been made, and
right at that moment there was
one hundred fifty million, seven
hundred fifty thousand dollars of
the State's funds invested, and, as
a member of the Council of State,
he knew about the General Fund
Investments. He has much to say
about the State's money being in
banks. Of course it's in banks, se
cured 100. Where do people usu
ally keep money? Would he have
Charlie keep it in a vault with
a couple of armed guards and pay
all the State's bills in cash? Speak
ing of savestments why didn't Mr.
Scott invest the funds of the Agri
culture Department during all the
years he has been Commissioner
until 1945? The reason, of course,

The Kenansville Lions Club held

Cafe Wednesday night. District
Governor, 31-C, Lien Gaither H.
Beam was present and spoke to
is he didn't have the authority un
til then and would have been viol
ating the law; but he is complain
ing because Charlie Johnson did I
not violate the law and speculate
with State funds.
And, moreover, during the past
campaign it was sometimes said
that Mr. Scott is a farmer. What a
discovery! I have never heard that
Mr Scott raises cotton or tobacco,
although I have heard that he owns
nearly two thousand acres of land.
I have understood that he is a
dairyman, and that he has several
hundred head of cattle in his dairy
herd. It has been said that with his
big dairy business, coupled with
his authority and power as Com
missioner of Agriculture, ne nas
put nearly all the small dairies out
of business, and that people down
in my section are now Urinking
milk which Mr. Scott allowed to
be shipped in from the far away
State of Wisconsin and maybe from
other distant cities. If this is wrong,
I know Mr. Scott will tell you. I
hope he will explain the dairy busi
ness. Sometimes you near the word
dirt-farmer as well as the word
milk-farmer. Charlie Johnson was
raised on a farm and followed a
1 plow. He was what is known as a
dirt-farmer. On that farm was
raised corn, peanuts, potatoes, cot
ton and tobacco. Mr. Scott is a
milk-farmer. Farming is one of
the most desirable and honorable
classes of all the varied life of our
great State. It is from the farm
that our people have always looked
for and found leadership. Its teach
ings have never been more beauti
ful or more faithfully or more
splendidly exemplified than they
are in the person of Charlie John
son.' The recollections of his ex
periences and of his labors and of
the trials during his boyhood and
young manhood on the farm will
go with him into every effort of his
future life, and he will employ
those recollections untiringly to
lessen the burdens of all.
I beg the people of my State to
consider what is involved in this
campaign with that degree of earn
estness and 'sincerity to which
these things are entitled. Much is
at stake. You should bring to bear
upon your decision your best judg
ment when you vote to choose a
governor of your State. And when
the qualifications' of the candidates
are squared for the making o'f your
choice, you will find no short
comings in the merits of Charlie
