WHY VOTE, ANYWAY?

KENANSV1LLB, NORTH CAROLINA
FRIDAY, JUNE 3rd., 1949
I did not vote for Kerr Scott for Governor and I
have no apologies to mafte. I did not agree with every
thing he proposed, and neither did I agree with .every
thing Charlie Johnson proposed. Maybe my decision

At firsts, was inclined to be against the road bond
' issue but favorable to the school bond issue. After study
ing the matter and securing what information I could
I came to the conclusion that the two are interlocking.
What is the advantage of better school buildings if we
do not have the roads to transport the children? Why
attemDt to improve our farming activities when we do
not have adequate farm to market roads? Why are city
folks entitled to more good roads than are the co.untry
folks when all alike have to pay for them?. Since 1920
the farmers have been paying for roads in North Caro
lina designed primarily to help those living in cities.
Now it's time for fair play, it's time for the country
people to. have more and better roads. We helped pay
snuawk and we exoect the
?ity folks to help pay for our roads without any squawk.
But we know, however, they will squawk and are squaw
king loudly now with the aid of moneys being spent in
this State from 'outside sources in an effort to kill the
foad bond issue. It is eternally true when large sums oi
money are spent by corporations "or individuals to de
feat any proposal th'ajt is designed to help the people
as a whole, those doing the spending are showing their
true colors by putting selfishness above service.
The huge bond issue in 1920 will be paid off in 1953.
No one can say he or she suffered from taxation to pay
for the road building. The proposed bond issue of $200,
000,000 to be voted in June 4th will be paid the same
