Constitutionality Of A Special
Session To Reduce Cotton Acreage
Is Widely Discussed In This Year
Seme Say Law Prohibiting Cotton,
Planting Will Not Hold;
(Special to The Star.)
Raleigh, Oct. 16.—Constitu
tionality of acts of southern
states In prohibiting or reduc
ing cotton planting is and will
continue to (five much trouble
to constitutional lawyers and
the judiciary since several of
the states have enacted restric
While no formal request for a
ruling on the constitutionality of
such an act has been made by Gov
ernor Gardner upon Attorney Gen
eral Dennis G. Brumntltt, it is I
known that the attorney general’s
office has been making a study of
the question, and, according to in
timation, the office would more
than likely hold that an acreage)
reduction statute enacted by the i
general assembly would be held cs'
One suggestion is that such i
law would not be "restricting the
right of an Individual to produce an
actual necessity, such as corn a ;
beans or other foods he, his family!
Or his stock would require, but
would restrict his right to produce
not a necessity, but a money crop, a
crop he is producing to run into
money, or profit. Another is that it
would be more contrary to the con
stitution than tljp limit placed by
law In New York City on the rental
an owner may place on a tenement,
or the zoning laws in many cities
of the state, which prohibit a man
from erecting a filling station or n
grocery store on the corner of his
own lot, located In a residence sec
Such an opinion, if it should be
so expressed by the attorney gen
eral’s office, would undoubtedly quit
those agitating for a special ses
sion of the general assembly to en
act cotton acreage restriction law's,
and would probably suit Josephus
Daniels,,who has held hi an editor
ial that It 1s no matter for the ex
ecutive or , legislative branch to
consider; that the court would pass
on Its constitutionality.
State Senator W. G. Clark of
Edgecombe county, v/no appeared
recently with a group before Gov
ernor Gardner to urge the session,
for cotton reduction, but primarily
tobacco curtailment, made the point
after the conference with the gov
ernor that it such a law is enacted,
it will be effective when cotton
.planting time cornea, by which time
.he supreme court could not render
a decision, even if it should -later fee
declared unconstitutional—that it
would have been as effective, as if
It had been.
An Interesting observation is that
two of the 1931 legislature, probably
classed among tlic best constitu
tional lawyers of that body, H. G.
"Tobc” Connor, of Wilson county,
and A. D. McLean, of Beaufort,
have expressed, opposition to the
special session, presumably on the
ground that the act would not be
In the October 12 issue of “Time,”
David Stock, New York attorney,
writes the editor, relative to toe
cotton restriction laws, saying he
and his lawyer friends are worried
over absence of concern and ignor
ing what he sees as “an insuperable
constitutional inhibition involved in
such legislation.’’ He acids: "It
seems to us that such a law is So
far outside the police powers of a
state, as delineated thus far by toe
decisions of the U. S. supreme court,
as to make it clearly contrary to the
prohibition of the 14th amendment
to the constitution of the U. S.
"Where," he asks, "are the at
torney generals who arc supposed
to keep the governors of the respec
tive states advised? Or is the pro
posal merely a political beau gestc5''
Incidentally, the -amc issue cf
"Time'' carries a letter Xroni Thom
as H. Sutton, of Eayettcvllle, who
protests against a sub-head hr ar.
earlier issue which said “Governor
Oliver Max Gardner turned his
'back on the south." After reviewing
Governor Gardner's plea for inter
national action and request for n
conference to decide on uniform ac
tion, Mr. Sutton adds: “We are sat
isfied that Governor Gardner had a
logical slant on the cotton question:
that he did not 'turn his back on the
In a foot-note the editor of Time
states: "Time's phase ‘turned his
back on the south' was unfortun
ate. All praise to North Carolina’s
Gardner for turnin ' Ms back on the
south's other governors when he
conscientiously disagreed with the
direction they were heading.''

How Democrats Can
Get Rid Of Raskob
Democrats who have objected to
Chairman Raskob's possessing a
"mortgage on the party’’ are now
to have the opportunity of lifting
that mortgage and putting the par
ty in an Independent position fi
nancially as In all other respects.
The success of the movement that
is being launched to raise a fund
of Si.500,000 to set up the cam
paign for next year will make H
possible to pay off the existing in
debtedness. most of which Mr. Ras
kob is still carrying, to the tune of
$325,000, and will put the party In
shape to wage an effective battle
for the Presidency.
A tuna Of 11,500,000 is not a
large amount for fifteen million
Democrats to provide. Of course,
not all those who call themselves
Democrats and who vote the Dem
ocratic ticket will contribute but
the more who do contribute the
healthier will it be for the party
and for the country. The Demo
crats have always labored under
the handicap of inadequate and
uncertain financing. A fund to
which a million persons had con
tributed would be an assurance of
victory in itself.
The United States covers an im
mense area and the most legitimate
expenses of conducting a political
campaign reaching to all parts of
this area are very large. It has to
be borne in mind that the press of
the country is generally Republican,
certainly as regards the larger
newspaper^ and the chief maga
zines. The claims of the Democrats
receive better handling in the press
and in most of the magazines than
was once the case but the situation
is still one that demands independ
ent campaign efforts to promise re
sults. It has been shown that a
first class press bureau at the na
tional capital can render splendid
service but the effectiveness of this
service was impaired to some de
gree by the contention that it was
Mr. Raskob s money that was foot
ing the bills.
If every Democrat who lias criti
cized this situation, would contrib
ute a dollar to the Democratic chest
the situation would be cured.

The Cleveland Star is and has been on a pre-war
basis in the two commodities it has to sell.
The Star’s mission is to sell news. Primarily it is a
newspaper that dispenses the news of the community it
serves. It’s subscription rate of $2.50 per year by mail
or $3 per year delivered by newsboy, is less than the
cost of a postage stamp per copy. NO OTHER LOCAL
NEWSPAPER IN NORTH CAROLINA HAS A LOW
ER PER ISSUE SUBSCRIPTION RATE. It costs $40,
000 a year to produce The Star, yet subscribers get it
FOR LESS THAN THE COST OF APOSTAGE
STAMP PER COPY, postage prepaid.
The other commodity The Star has to sell is a by
product, known as advertising. The Star’s advertising
rate is LESS PER INCH PER THOUSAND CIRCU
LATION THAN ANY OTHER LOCAL NEWSPA
PER IN NORTH CAROLINA.
These two achievements are possible by reason of
economy in operation Aid mass production. The Star
has a circulation larger than any weekly newspaper in
North Carolina and larger than the circulation of 20 of
the 35 daily newspapers in the State.
In other words there are over 200 newspapers in
North Carolina and The Star ranks 16th in circulation
among all of them.
