Raleigh, Ian. 21.—A bill,
( hanging the day of holding the
State-w' te primary from Satur
day to Tin-day, was introduced
in the Senate Wednesday by
Senator Peyton .VlcSwain, of
Cleveland. The bill merely
changes "the first Saturday" in
June to "Tne day after the first
Monday” in June.
Bill;, at previous sessions ha\e
been killed b-sra use they moved up
the primary from June to Angus*
opposed by party leaders on the
ground that factions would not nave
time to get together belore the ♦.lec
tion.' The MeSwaln bill eliminate:;
that objection' Another objection is
the usual haii-holiday on Saturday,
which allegedly tends to brine out ]
the vote. j
The North Carolina Press As-c
ciation has favored the change from
Saturday for several years, on the
ground, principally, that the press
of Saturday work made it the hard
est day tiie newspapers have for
gathering and presenting the re
turns from the primary. They will
doubtless support the McSwaih osr.
(Note: North Carolina newspaper*,
as represented in the N.. C. Press
Association, have advocated this
change for years so that election of
ficials and helpers would not be
forced to work on Sunday morning
In counting votes and making re

Thinks Salary Slash To Effect
Only Those Above $1,200A Tear;
Cat Applies To A ll Public Work
Catawba Representative Believes
Slash Will Be Modified
Soon.
Hickory, Jan. 20.—Expressing the
belief that the proposed cut of ten
per cent in the salaries of public
employes and officials throughout
North Carolina will receive the
sanction of the state legislature,
Representative Oscar Pitts told The
Record that he thinks, however, that
the measure will be modified to ap
ply only to salaries of more than
$1,200 per year.
Representative Pitts spent Sunday
in Hickory with his family, return
ing to Raleigh for some important
conferences today, prior to the re-*,
convening of the general assembly
this evening.
Mr. Pitts says that the salary re
duction measure would apply to all
public employes and officials—state,
county, city, and township. He and
a number of other members of (he
assembly have been making a fight
to exempt school teachers, and he
expressed the opinion that a com
promise on a $1,200 salary minimum
as an exemption basis might prove
satisfactory to all.
“It does not. seem fair to many of
us to force public employes, especial
ly school teachers, who are getting
less than twenty-five dollaiv per
week, to take a cut in pay,” he
stated, adding that such drastic ac
tion, m his way of looking at it,
would do more harm than good.
In a conference with Governor
Gardner, Saturday. Mr. Pitts stat
ed that he and.Supt, R. W. Carver
of the Hickory schools, asked the
chief executive if the proposed cut
in pay was meant to apply to city
and county officials and employes
as well as to state employes. He
reported that Governor Gardner
replied that the cut would apply to
all persons on the public payroll
janywhere hi the state.
Low Number Of
Guests At Jail
Just a few weeks a bo Sher
iff Irvin Allen was near II.e
place where he had to refuse
to register new guests at the
county hotel—the jail—where
he presides.
But limes have changed.
Two weeks ago with over 50
prisoners there wasn't a single
spare room for unexpected
company. Today there are
only 15 prisoners, and the jail,
says the sheriff, is as hear
empty as It has been for
months.

Cannon, Jr., ol the Methodist Epis
copal church, south, by four travel

board of 12 travelling eiders and
three bishops, it was learned yes

The hearing will take place In
Washington at the Mount Vernon
Southern Methodist church, one of
the most fashionable churches of

join Bishop Ainsworth in presiding
over the hearings, it. was reported,
were Bishop Kdwin Dubose Moiucn
of Charlotte, and Bishop U. V. W.
Darlington, of Huntington, W, Va.
It will be the duty of these bishops
to conduct the hearings, while the
12 traveling ciders will determine
whether the charges have sufficient
substance to require the suspension
of Bishop Cannon, tnd placing him
on trial before a conference of the
church.
At the same time, it also was re
vealed. Bishop Cannon may be re
quired to face again a senatorial
committee to answer questions as

Skating Fad At Its Greatest Height
In Shelby Now. lTse
Sidewalks.
(The skating fad Is at Its greatest
pitch in Shelby just now with the
streets filled with scores of young
boys and girls flitting in and out
among pedestrians. The skating
craze began just after Christmas,
thanks to the many pairs of skat?s
brought along by Santa Claus, and
has gained momentum as the weeks
have passed by.
Scores and scores of colored chil
dren spend the day skating as well
as a large number of White chil
dren. The constant-skating in the
uptown section, particularly around
the court square, has brought inly
one criticism from citizens and that
is that the skaters should not be
permitted to u$e the sidewalks In
ihe main business section or whore
pedestrian traffic is heavy. Young
skaters should be warned, too, many
citizens think, not to skate In
streets where there is eevn occasion
al motor traffic so that no injifries
or fatalities will result.

Chan***.
Washington, Jan.' 21.—The long- i
debated .report of the wtekersham
commission, broadly upholding con
stitutional prohibition but leaving
the door ajar for basic revision, was
put on the crowded calendar of a
divided congress yesterday by Presi
dent Hoover.
The president agreed with the
commission that the dry amend
ment should not be repealed. He
disagreed with a suggestion that re
vision might lie the la tter part of
wisdom. He pointed out to the law
makers that all the commissioners
favored large expansion of enforce
ment facilities and said he hoped
congress would consider that at
some appropriate time.
In private opinions expressed two
of the eleven' favored repeal and
four desired modification, but all
united In asking additional trial
with more force.
Proposes Referendum,
Senator Borah of Idaho, and ad
vocate of prohibition, said repeal <r
no repeal of the 18th amendment
was the Issue and demanded that, It
be taken to the people.
| “I should like to see those op
posed to the 18th amendment pre
rent their alternative and let the!
people choose between them In an!
orderly and proper fashion,’ he
said.
Senator Blaine, Republican, Wis
consin, an opponent of the dry law,
introduced a resolution for a sub
stitute prohibition amendment simi
lar to that the commission outlined.
His proposal would give congress the
power to regulate liquor traffic, but
not to prohibit.
After the first storm of words
I .subsick'd, congress turned back to
j its burdensome legislative task. The
report was sent to the judiciary
committees of the house and sen
ate with indications that it would
remain there until next session at
least.
Favor Further Trial.
The bone dry Federal Circuit
Iowa, exhibits amazement at the
Judge Kenyon, former senator from
evidence to which service on the
! commission opened his eyes. He and

McCormick. favor ultimately, if
further trial brings no improve

the Swedish government control
system which Col. Henry W. An
derson sets out in his separate
statement In the report
Frank J. Loesch, venerable Chi
cago lawyer, and Roscoe Pound,
dean of the Harvard law school,
agree with Colonel Anderson that
the Swedish plan should be tried at
once. It requires amending the 18th
amendment to vest in congress au
thority to deal completely with the
liquor question. Under It, a bi-par
tisan national commission of liquor
control would be set up with power
to^regulate manufacture and sale of
liquor by privately-owned corpora

Hoover Opposes Change.

Last December Coldest In N. C.
Since 1917; Temperature Below
Normal; Soil Aided By Big Snow
First, December In 27 Years That
Temperature Did Not
Reach 70.
Raleigh, Jan. 21.—North Carolina
experienced its coldest December
since 1917 last month, Lee A. Den
son, United States weather bureau,
reported today. The weather dur
ing October, November, and De
cember has been the coldest in 13
years, Mr. Denson said.
The monthly mean temperature
was 38.3 degrees, or 4.1 below nor
mal, and it was the first December
in 27 years that the temperature
has not risen above 70 degrees.
The reason for the month as a
whole averaging colder than any
December since 1917, Mr. Denson
said, was due to steadiness of cold
and absence of mild spells rather
than occurrence of unusually cold
periods,
The number of clear and cloudy
days were equally divided and pre
cipitation averaged slightly above
normal, with a rainfall heavier in
the east than m the west.
Snow on the 17th was “very
heavy*' in the northern portions of
the Piedmont and mountain region,
and was mixed with sleet in the
eastern and southern counties.
Damage from the sleet was very
Slight except for a small area east
and south of Goldsboro, the weath
er man said.
Oxford, Asheboro. High Joint,
Salisbury and Hickory had 15 or
more inches of snow. Shelby had 37
inches and 20 inches or more was
reported at Reidsville. Winston
Salem, Elkin, Mount Airy and'Park
er.
The snowfall was beneficial in
soaking the soil, Mr. Denson said,
and increasing stream flow and the

Or»W» Out l,arge Delegation
Loral Women.
tf the enthusiasm shown at. the
first - buck-to-cotton movement
meeting of Shelby clubwomen hen
Monday Is sustained, then King
Cotton is headed for better days.
The gathering of scores of wom
en, interested in the cotton move
ment was held in the Woman’s
club room and called by Mrs. John
W. Harbison, Woman's club presi
dent, for the purporse of hearing
Mrs. W. D Anderson, of Gastonln,
on the real economic value, of ‘
more usage of cotton-made goods.
Support Idea.
So convincing was Mrs Ander
son’s talk that at the conclusion of
the speech all the women present
pledged themselves, by rising, to
wear and use more cotton-made
Hoods, including dresses, hosiery and
‘liter articles of apparel.
Mrs. Anderson very adriotly point
ed out that, the future of this sec- *
t Ion depends to a great extent upon
I he cotton industry, "There Is not a
woman present," she said, “who is
not dependent to a certain extent
upon the cotton Industry In one
phase or another. If cotton Is to
sell for a decent price, if the manu
facturing plants are to operate reg
ularly, then there must be a market
for cotton goods, and there can be
no market, for them except the law
of demand on the part of the wom
en of the country.”
She also explained that modern
cotton hose end cotton garments
are far different from the old con
ception of those things. Cotton hos
iery was displayed at the meeting
to show that in appearance It
equals silk and has, it was said, bet
ter wearing qualities.
Another feature was the model
ling of cotton dresses by Mrs. Stove
Barnwell, of Gastonia.
Short talks endorsing the move
ment and urging the women of this
entire section to co-operate were
made by the following women: Mrs.
C R. Hoey, Mrs, F. R. Morgan, Mrs.
J. H. Hull, Mrs. B. T. Falls, Mrs.
Irma Wallace, Miss Louise Gill, and
Mrs. Separk ,the latter of Gastonia.
Fashion Show Coming.
Due to the enthusiasm and inter
est shown It was announced that
Miss Grace Walton, of the cotton
textile institute, wall be in Shelby
within the next two weeks to put
on a fabric display or fashion show.
It is the same display recently put
on at the Hotel Astor in New York
City.
