A1 Smith Believes
In Gardner’s Ideas
Says State Has Too Many Offices.
Is Not Centralizing But
Pinehurst, Feb. 12.—Governor O.
Max Gardner has the right idea in
his proposed re-orgairzation of the
North Carolina state government.
Alfred E. Smith, former governor of
New York, and Democratic presi
dential nominee in 1928, said here
In an interview with the Sand Hil!
Daily News Mr. Smith said he had
studied the proposed rc-organization
scheme carefully add it seemed to
him that the plan is erroneously re
itrred to as "centralization of pow
“It is no centralization,” said Mr
Smith, “it is simplification. Gover
nor Gardner does not propose to
take powers from town and county
governments. He simply wants to
‘simplify’ the existing state govern
ment. He wants to combine some of
the many commissions, boards and
cilices, that are connected with the
running of the state government
and in doing this he it just follow
ing the lead of some of the larger
eastern states who a tew years ago
pruned their governments.
“You know you people down here
have too many offices anyway," the
former governor said, with asmile.

Gardner Road Plan To
Save County $97,411
Tahle Of Tax Relief By State Taking Over
County Roads Show That Plan Would Cut
Expenses In Cleveland County Almost
$100,000 Per Year In Road Upkeep.
See Editorial, Page — "The > Pcepul” Behind Governor
Raleigh, Feb, 13.—Governor Gardner today* released a
table showing in itemized detail the tax relief that each
county will receive by reason of the state’s assuming the
complete burden of the maintenance of county roads. The
! figures are based on the expenditures of each county for the
year ending June JO, 19JO.
Cleveland county, the table
shows, would save a total of $97
411 a year on roads, divided as fol
lows: overhead, $2,21o: convicts. $6,
330; maintenance, $60,218; equip
ment, $14,630; gas and oil
The data for this survey were
gathered from the official recor:i3
of the county accountants, county
road superintendents and township
road commissioners, etc. The sur 'ey
was made under the direction of the
United States bureau of roads and
represents actual transactions for
one year, as nearly as information
or. file in the county offices per
The table shows, under the ap
propriate heads, the tax relief for
expenditures for salaries, convi ts.
maintenance, equipment, and gas
and oil, and in the last column the
total tax burden which will remove
from the counties when the entire
| cost of maintenance Is assumed by
the state..
The ligures do not, include ire
| sum of one and one-half million
I dollars for construction, interest,
and miscellaneous expenditures,
which burden will also be removed
from the property taxpayers in the
100 counties. These figures represent
only the relief which property wd’
receive from the maintenance of
county roads by the state.
The amounts of taxes taken off
range from $355,489 of expenditures
in Mecklenburg county, all the way
to $6,580 spent in Clay County.
The table shows that the 47 coun
ties which maintain their roads
through working copviets spend the
bulk of the $6,600,000 spent annual
ly for maintenance. These 47 coun
ties having convicts tpend almss*
• $5,000,000 while the 53 small-ir
counties not haying convict camps
spend a little less than $1,600,100
The counties with convict camps
spend more than three times as
much as the larger number of coun
ties without convict camps. The re
port of the tax commission shows
i that convict counties spend an av
erage of $182 per mile for mainten
ance for each mile of road main*. Jin
ed, whereas the smaller counties av
erage only $90 per mile.
The governor's position is that
state maintenance means cheaper
• maintenance and also means thi
I transference of the tax burden from
where it does not Delong—that it,
on property, to the place and per
son on whom it does beldng—that
is to the gasoline tax.

Alleged Crack Of Fountain At
Young Men Stirs Their Anger;
His Program Called Reactionary
His Fight On Tax Reduction Pro
gram Of Gardner Hurts4"flances
In 1932.
Raleigh, Feb. 13.—Usually so adept
at straddling any issue in such a
way as to be able to worm out on
the correct side of the question la
ter. Lieutenant Governor R. T.
Fountain is having an unusually
difficult time in explaining what he
meant the other night when he is
reported to have said that “the
young men, from 30 to 35 years >ld.
are responsible for the condition of
the state today.” At the time he
said it. Fountain realized he had
made a slip and tried to patch it
up. But it was too rate.
Indications are that this declara
tion has stirred up a resentment
against the reactionary lieutenant
governor that has been smouldering
in the breasts of the younger and
forward looking Democrats in the
slate for some time, because of his
opposition to every progressive and
constructive measure that has b-cn
offered in the present general as
sembly. Judging from the reaction
being heard in every section of the
state as a result of his attack up«.n
‘the young men between 30 and 35,”
this has become the wind that was
needed to stir the smouldering re
sentment into flame.
Many now believe that this flame
will soon destroy the carefully built
tinderwood and paper mache poli
tical flying machine which Foun
tain has attempted to build in
which to glide into the governor
ship in 1932.
Here is Lieutenant Governor
Fountain’s record since the present
general assembly got under way :
He is opposed.'to ’-educing taxe£

Opposing Change
In N. C. Game Law
Isaak Walton League Asked to Op
pose Local Bills Exempting
Raleigh, Feb. 13.-—Local bills, ex
empting counties from the operation
of the state-wide game and fish
laws, will weaken these statutes
and if permitted, will bring back a
confusion of local regulations exist
ing before the present acts were
adopted, 8. B. Coley, president cf
the Waltonian State Council, of
Norjh Carolina, declared in a let
ter to members of the league
throughout the state.
"9uch legislation, if passed,’' as
serted Mr. Coley, “will materially
affect the state-wide game and fish
laws as they now stand; and if this
continues without opposition, it will
result in our not having any state
game and fish laws, but only a mass
of different and local statutes dis
criminating in favor of some of the
various counties and highly detri
mental to the ideal for which our
league stands.
“I feel that every Waltonian and
othed loyal sportsmen, throughout
the state, does not want our state
wide game and fish laws weakened
by exemptions for certain counties,
but on the other hand would rather
have the laws strengthened, if pos
Mr. Coley called upon every Wal
tonian In North Carolina to oppose
the passage of these local bills. The
Isaak Walton league is the largest
organization of hunters, fishermen
and conservationists in the state,
having approximately 60 chapters
scattered throughout North Caro
lina. The organization has several
thousand members, whose slogan is
' Protectors of . woods, waters and
wild life."
Among the bills referred to in the
Faleigh dispatch was one introduced
by Senator 'McSwain which wou'd
make it lawful to use seines and
trot lines In Cleveland county. So
far the Isaak Walton league of this
county has issued n<ystatement re
garding the McSwain bill.
Kiwanis Endorses
New Road Program
Gardner's Road Program Is Endors
ed. Business Standards Are
Govertior Gardner’s state road
program was enthusiastically en
dorsed last night by the Kiwanis
club alter it was explained by O. M.
Mull, former executive counsel who
is now manager of the Cleveland
Cloth mills of Shelby. Mr. Mull said
the only difference between the two
schools of thought in the legisla
ture Is that one group wants the
one cent additional tax sent back
to the counties for expenditure un
der county supervision, while the
other wants the entire county road
systems taken over by the state and
the gasoline tax spent under state
supervision, with the employment of
convicts and the purchase of high
way machinery at wholesale instead
of retail. Citizens would lodge their
request for roads with the county
commissioners of each county under
the Gardner system and not have
to go to Raleigh.
Chas. L. Eskridge, Alger and Earl
Hamrick had charge of the program
devoted to business standards. B. L
Smith read a paper giving the high
business standards for Kiwanis
member to practise. Prizes were
drawn and Mr. Eskridge gave each
member an opportunity for a free
demonstration of a Ford car.

County Farmers Urged To Join
Grow-Own Food Drive In County
Star To Publish Name* Of Farmers
Who Will Bach Live-At-Home
Will Cleveland county farmers
gTow their own food and feed this
Spring and summer, or will there
be another line of applicants here
next winter seeking aid from the
public charity fund?
The salvation of the farmer In
1931 Is up to him, leading farm ofc*
servers say. The farmer who pid
ouces enough food and feed for his
own use for next winter as well as
for the summer will not suffer re
gardless of how cotton sells next
fall. But the farmer who depends
upon his cash crop for money with
which to purchase the food and
feed he should produce himself will
find hard sledding ahead.
In order to encourage all farm
ers in the county to grow their own
food and feed, The Star will pub
lish as they come In an honor roll
of all fanners, landlords and ten
ants, who pledge themselves to de
vote sufficient acreage this spring
to food and feed crops.
It Is particularly urged that land
owners see that their tenants give
enough acreage to such crops as the
major suffering ana want in the
county this winter was among the
tenant class.
A list of honor roll farmers will
be published next week. All farmers
who will support the movement may
give their names to the county
agent, or fill in the following blank
and mall or deliver it to The Shu:
IN 1931
I hereby pledge myself to de
vote enough acreage this Spring
to food and feed crop;; to supply
the wants of everything on my
farm. If I have tenants on my
farm, I will Insist that they also
grow their own and feed.

Marshal In Work
Charlotte, Feb, 13.-Creation of v
position of United States deputy
marshal for Mecklenburg count •>,
which W. A. McFarland, Charlotte
grocer, was slated to fill, has aeen
refused by the department of Jus
tice, according to Brownlow Jack
son, United States marshal for the
western district.
Mr. Jackson said he had request
ed permission to appoint an addi
tional deputy marshal but the de
partment of Justice has no appro
priation for such an office at the
present time.
The request for an additional
deputy marshal came as the result
of the tremendous increase In bu*i
ness of the government during the
past few years. At the present time
B. F. (Guard) Hamrick of Boiling
Springs, is the only deputy mar
shal in this territory, end it was
pointed out that the work in Meck
lenburg county alone is enough to
keep one officer busy.

for Governor O. Max Gardner have
been communicrted to individuals
here in letters from a source at Ra
leigh, regarded as close to the gov

the campaign
Several Charlotte business and
professional men have reported re
ceiving letters within the last sev

projected move on behalf of tire
governor and advising of the need
for financial assistance,
It was indicated the movement
had been launched without the
knowledge of the governor but the
letters did not otherwise reveal any
details as to organisation plans or
who would head the campaign. j
Local friends of Governor Garde
ner who received letters expressed
themselves as keenly interested in
promiting his chances of receiving
the honor. He has already been
widely mentioned in the press of
tlie nation as a vice-presidential
Because of many strong personal
and political friendships here, it
was believed that any organized
campaign in his behalf would re

several of those who received the
Raleigh letters expressed themselves
as ready to make a financial con
tribution when, and if, an organ

The governor’s friends say the
achievements of his administration
form a record that should have a
nationwide appeal, and they also
regarded him as ideally located geo

the bank was Insolvent.
The Jury returned Us verdict &V
4 30 p. m. after two hours of delib
eration. Three hours later, Judge
H. Hoyle Sink, presiding, rc-con
vened court to announce he would
withhold sentence Rt least until 5
p. m. Saturday.
• Sentence* Deferred.
Judge Sink said he had been try
ing to decide what was best to do.
He added that If he had not been
able to obtain certain Information
he desired by Saturday, he might
further defer passing of sentence
until the May term of court.
With this announcement, prayer
for Judgment was continued and the
five defendants were allowed to
continue at liberty under bond.
The five—J. L. Taylor, president
of the bank; W. B. Walker, cash

ing the bank had been insolvent
for at least a year before it closed.
The jury found them guilty of the
Charge as to both dates.
Solvency Claimed.
During the trial the defense
counsel contentions of the state as
to the bank’s Insolvency with evid
ence tending to show that- the In-.
stitutlon had been examined a few
weeks before It failed by the state
banking department and pronounc
ed solvent.
This argument was met by Soli
citor J. w. Pless with the statement
that the banking department's re
