There was a little revenge •.ucked in this victory for Webb, for Smith had downed him in a previous battle during the war. Three Memphis Vets. Then Webb struck three Memphis veterans in a row and two of them bowed before his youthful strokes before he took the count from Spic er.

Racing Bill Gets Unfavorable Report, OatcomeSales TaxPlan Uncertain; Legislative Review creased Kquallzatlon fund May Support Schools Instead Of Sales Tax. By JW. B. BCXNMUlt Star News Bureau. Raleigh. March 16,—Neither the school bill nor the highway bill has created more Interest hi any one week than has the Buncombe rac ing bill, which has occupied the cen ter of the stage for the past week and was finally given ail unfavor able report by the senate commit tee Friday, after that committee had previously given It a favorable re port. The entire senate body also re verced Itself Friday night, tabling the bill and putting the “clincher” on it so It cannot come up again ex cept by a two-thirds vote. The bill provided that racing tracks and devices may be erected in Buncombe county at a cost ap proaching half a million dollars, to be rented at $5,000 a day for 36 days a year for horse, and dog racing and operation of pari mutual devices— gambling machines—which church people and moral forces arailed as steps toward legalizing gambling and making Buncombe a Monte Carlo of vice and degradation. Proponents pointed to the money Buncombe would receive, saying it would help bring back that county from its financial debacle. Women led the promoters and formed a formidable lobby. The house passed the bill by a heavy margin and the senate passed it on second reading, when it was re-referred to the committee on counties, cities and towns, which later reversed Its position »' Farmers Protest. “Embattled farmers,” descended upon the general assembly last Thursday by the hundreds and from all over the state, demanding tax CONTINUED ON PAGE EIGHT.! lour Problem.

WHO’S UNWILLING TO BUY? People are forever buying things. They want to buy. They must have things to eat and things to drink; fuel, furnaces and clothing to keep them warm, and things to keep them cool; things that beautify, educate, edify, elevate, and things to amuse. So far, there is no limit to the things that civilized people demand. Mr. and Mrs. Average Consumer thrill to the announcement of anything new and different— anything better than they have already seen or used. They are quick to sense the value of superior products and demand those things that have proven most sdtis factory to them. They know what they need—what they want— but they don’t always know exactly where to get it. They would like to shop direct, to be shown to the counters that contain the comforts and necessi ties they are seeking. They look first to the newspaper advertisements to guide them to value and economy. Star advertising has been the connecting link between merchant and consumer for more than 37 years. It is a dependable source of information to the consumer and a sure-fire sale promoter for the merchant.
