As some wise looking doctors have
been looking over me lately and de
cided that I will have to submit my
carcass for another thorough going
over where they use all such crude
Instruments as saws, tiles and
probes, etc. The old heart Just got
a stubborn spell and refused to act
In a manner becoming to a good
heart, and they have decided that
the best thing that Rambling Bill
can do during these hot summer
months Is to repose peacefully in
among the pines at or near Prescott,
Arizona as a guest of Uncle Sam.
Yesterday I thought I was O. K.,
today I’m en route to a hospital, the
first time In years, but one can nev
er tell, and perhaps I’ll get to write
my own obituary yet. In case my
body ahould come back to North
Carolina aome of these days, I want
to be burled somewhere In Cleveland
county atop a little knoll where the
gentle breeze will rustle leaves over
head, and I trust that some kind
soul back there will carve on a tree
near by or chisel on some rock the
the following, “Here Lies Ramblin’
BUI, He Rambled All.Around; He
Lived While He Lived and Died
When He Died,” and I guess there
wiU be enough Insurance to pay for
the plot and to hire some kind un
dertaker to plant me In a spot like
that. But I believe that I will cheat
the undertaker this time, as I have
cheated him in the past occasions.
Being in a government hospital, for
a few months Is not so bad in itself.
The nurses are fairly good looking
and the doctor will not cut off your
leg unless you happen to go to sleep
during their working fiours. Once T

‘ RAMBLIN’ BILL.
Million More Acres
Goes In Foods
The figure given by Governor
Gardner In his live-at-home radio
talk. Thursday evening encouraged
the belief that N. C. farmers
are making a sincere and determin
ed effort to produce as far as it is
possible for them to do so all of the
foodstuffs and feedstuff* which they
will require or their own use.
There was a significant increase
last year in the acreage planted to
other crops than cotton and tobacco
and the Increase this year appears
to have been even greater. The next
important thing Is to save these
crops for use this fall and Winter.
Oovemor Oardner stressed especi
ally the wisdom of canning and pre
serving all of the surplus vegetables,
truck and fruit grown hr 1031. Last
year, he says, the reports of the
county agents reported that ir. fifty
seven counties In which home dem
onstration work was organized the
farm women and girls of North Car
olina put up 1,500,000 cans of food
products and that these agents pre
dict an increase of a million cans
That will be a fine record and yet
it would be less than a can of food
products for each person In the
state. North Carolinians spend mil
lions of dollars every year for food
stuffs which the could make and
save*themselves. Governor Gardner
asks them the very pertinent ques
tion, where are these millions com
tng from this year. Can they come
he asks, from cheap cotton and
cheap tobacco? Of course not. Cot
ton in Georgia last year was grown
at an average loss of nearly two
cents a pound. Probably-the situa
tion In North Carolina was about
the same. That means that the cot
ton grower who holds his owm with
cotton prices at the prevailing lev
els will be the farmer who raises
and saves as much as possible of the
things he will need to eat.
The estimates furnished the gov
ernor indicate that a million more
acres in North Carolina have been
planted in foodstuffs and feedstuff#
■ than in 1930. If these estimates are
correct they spell progress and hope.

To Pass On Tax
And Bond Issues
Court To Decide Whether Bonds
Are For Special Or General
By M. R. DLNNAGAN
Raleigh, June ?2.~The North Car
olina Supreme court haa before It
the first constitutional problem ar
ising from the actions of the 1931
session of the general assembly and
one of Importance to many of the
100 counties and 432 municipalities
In the State. Two test cases are be
fore the court, one from Duplin, the
other from Durham county, and
were heard by the court last Sat
urday, In order that the problem
might be disposed of as soon as
The question la this. Many
units of government have Issued
tax anticipation notes to pay cur
rent expenses and to be repaid by
revenues later. Some of these units
failed to realise the revenues suf
ficient to meet these notes. The 1931
local government act permits the
funding of these notes by issuance
and selling of bonds, the interest
and principle being payable "from
an unlimited tax upon all taxable
property" of the unit, placing It as
a tax for a special purpose.
Special Or Gereral rnrpese,
The Supreme court is to decide
whether such funding is for a spe
cial purpose, in that 'the present
economic condition make it an em
ergency, as is provided In the local
government act, and such bonds re
tired by special tax levies; or wheth
er such tax would be for general
current expenses and, therefore,
against the constitutional prohibi
tion of a levy'of more than 15 cents
on the *100 of property valuation
for current operating expenses.
This action has a bearing on the
law enacted by the recent general
assembly which would permit 30
odd counties to levy taxes for court
and jail costs and the cost of the
quadrtennial revaluation of proper
ty as special purposes and In addi
tion to the 15-cent limit for gener
al expenses. Belief is that the act
is unconstitution, but it was enact
ed as a method of keeping county
commissioners out of jail" for ex
ceeding the 15-cent limit of tax
