Their comment follows:
"Since the days cf the Constitutional Convention, Valley
'r'TForge, Hunker Hill, Kings Mountain and Yorktown, Americans
have fmight and bled and died for a democratic way of life. One
of the blessings of a Democracy is he right vested in the people
to elect the representatives of their choosing. It is a right of
free men it is a right not to be ignored, or to be complacent
about. A right treated so lightly may be taken away. Anieri

mocracy, where freedom is of reality, not just a coined word or
an expression. Americans must be eternally vigilant to keep the
lihl of democracy burning. Freedom has been snuffed out in
other parts of the world it must not happen here.
"Pos 46 of the American Legion puts itself squarely on rec-

many years from now o of those
large nluminumcolored, three-by-three
tablets will be placed at

near the Sir Walter Hotel: "On

crats THOUGHT the Progressives

strengthen the Democrats than

he is getting plenty of it from elsewhere.

to be in the State on Election Day.
Those who know Miss Cobb main

TiIe BIGGEST HAND Ask
anybody who has attended all the
rallies and he will tell you that
Sen. W. B. Umstead, day in and
day out, lias been the most popular
figure participating in them. J. M.
Broughton, who beat him, has had
a better press: but Umstead has
received a better hand.
Umstead isn't dead politically
by .any means. In Raleigh, they
are saying he is the most popular
defeated candidate since O. ' Max
Gardner in 1920. Another thing:
Since his May 29 downfall. Mr.
Umstead has' written around 15,
000 letters thanking those who
helped him for their support. That
certainly doesn't sound like a
Sen. Umstead is a very able
man. It is to be regretted that it
is impossible for North Carolina
to have the services of both Mr.
Umstead and J. M. Broughton. At
the time of the late J. W. Bailey's
death. Senator Umstead was de
finitely planning to be a candidate
for Governor this year. In which
event, Kerr Scott would not have
run. It is also doubtful that Char
les M. Johnson would have.
.For several days following the
death of Bailey a group of men
urged and pleaded with Umstead
to accept Gov. R. Gregg Cherry's
appointment to fill out the term
of the deceased Bailey. ' But he
wanted to be Governor. These call
ers wanted Umstead to be Gov
ernor, too, but more than that they
wanted to keen J. M. Broughton
out of the U. S. Senate and felt
that Umstead was the only man
in the State who could do it. Final
ly, the anti-Broughtonites got their
way. As it turned out, not even
Umstead could down the popular
speaker, Sunday School teacher,
and general getter-abouter, J. M.
CAD HEAD . Nobody around
Raleigh knows where the rumor
that D."S. Coltrane, State Agricul
ture Commissioner, would become
the next head of the Department
of Conservation and Development
got started. He may be; or he may
not.be. George L. H. White, Ra-.
leigh ice cream manufacturer and
a Scott man all the way, is being '
considered for the post.
Coltrane is an exceptionally able
man. Only Kerr Scott and Col
trane know 4he tremendous
amount of work which the Assis
tnnt Commissioner of Agriculture
kept off the shoulders of the Agri
culture Commissioner from Jan
uary, 1937, until last winter when
Scott resigned. He could handle
the Department of Conservation
and Development, but he said Sun
day that he knows absolutely no
thing about his being given -tpe
opportunity to direct it and is not
at all certain he would accept tne
olace even if offered it.
WHAT HAPPENED? Two
months ago one of the hottest
things going in North Carolina was
the Dixie-crats. Now they seem
to be hardly creating a rippled.
There may be a few good Demo
crats who will vote the way of
the States Righters, but mum
seems to be the word right now,
and reports from the rallies which
the No. 1 party leaders have been
holding throughout the State are
to the effect that the followers of
Wright and Thurmond aren't crea
ting even a ripple. If there is
strength out there for this camp,
it is certainly very, very silent.
One thing is true, however: The
ABSENT Sate Treasurer Char
les M. Johnson has not participa-'
ted in anv of these Democratic fal-
lies you have heard so much about
in the past few weeks, Sour
grapes? Well, many are saying so
which is only to be expected.
Others who are perhaps closer to
the defeated gubernatorial candi
date say that he is very busy this
fall getting everything in shape in
the Treasurer's office and just
does not have time to be gadding
about. They say further that
Johnson knows he is through po
litically and therefore is not in
terested in making the arduous

Beatrice Cobb of Morganton,
North Carolina's National Commit
teewoman, has also been conspi
cuous by her absence from the
meetings. There was some ques- j
tion in faet, quite a bit of ques- j
tion as to whether she would be
renamed to her high position in j
the ranks of the Democrats. Mrs.
0. Max Gardner was proposed for
the place in Philadelphia just prior
to the National Convention.
When Mrs. Gardner demurred,
