WATCH DOG Senator U. L.
Spence, of Moore, is the legislative
watch-dog of the State Highway
fund but as chairman of the Senate
roads committee he is keeping busy
fighting the diversionists. Senator
Spence shyed away from the bill to
give the Highway Commission au
thority to pay Dare County some
thing in return for tolls it now re
ceives from the Roanoke Island
bridge. The State would make the
bridge toll free and the county would
fuse the annual State payments to re
tire bonds. Senator Spence feared
this might be used as a lever to obli
gate the State Highway fund to pay
other county bonds.
I SECRETS The joint conference
committee on the biennial revenue bill
decided it Would rather work without
benefit of publicity and barred new
papermen. The committee' members
toblf pledge not t dtseiottt what
happened in the session until their
rprt was made. But an hour after
the adjournment newspapermen had
little difficulty in learning what action-waa
taken and the public was
duly informed. And they talk about
women being unable to keep a secret.
GETTING WORSE Capus. M.
Waynick, chairman of the State High
way and Public Works Commission, is
getting worried about the condition of
some - of the "Dermanent" roads in
this State. They are going to pieces'
in a great many places and Waynick
fears that the time may come when
Federal aid money will be cut off and
the State win find itself with a lot
of broken doWri roads and no money
to repair them. 1 am going to in

PAY BOOST SUte Treasurer
Chas. M. Johnson is going to get a
raise' in pay frotri MJBOO to $0,000 an
nually the first of next year as a re
sult of a bill passed by the General
Assembly. That's a nice little lift
but the State" Treasurer has riot had
a pay increase inf the past 14 years.
Arid the last Legislature dumped all
the work of the local government in
STILL THERE Although th
sound arid fury over the Rayburn bill
iri Congress (which would give the
Federal power commission almost
plenary authority over all power
companies) the measure remains a
matter of major legislation. and Re
presentatives and Senators are con
tinuing to receive protests from the
folks back home. Some people re
member that turning the matter of
railroad rates over to the Interstate
Commerce Commission didn't help
North Carolina arid they do say the
same people and a lot of others fear
the result if the Rayburn bill should

Pou, Raleigh attorney and son of the

ABSENTEE This Legislature has
turned thumbs down on every move
te reform State-wide absentee voting.
The hue' and try aftidnir the law
makers is that corruption in absentee
voting is greatly : exaggerated and
that it isreat blessing to many
voters who otherwise would be unable

DOING WELL Senator Carroll
Weathers, of Wake, is guite a young
man and a first-termer in the General
Assembly but is keeping his feet on
the ground. He was quite disturbed
about the Justices of the Peace sys
tem in the State but his corrective
bill didn't get to first base. But later
it was Senator Weathers who offered
the revenue bill amendment repre
senting a compromise on sales tax
food exemptions. It broke the dead
lock on the money bill, something un
usual for a first-termer to get credit
TEAM The Washington grapevine
reports that Congressman Lindsay
Warren has beeri listening to sugges
tions that he team up with Clyde R.
Hoey, Shelby Democratic war-horse
in the primaries next spring. Mr.
Hoey would be taking care of the
gubernatorial votes and Mr. Warren
looking after the Senatorial votes,
according to the report The dopes
ters figure it out that Hoey would
Kelp Warren in the west where he is
weakest and Warren would return the,
favor in the east. But somehow Ra
leigh is' not coriviriced that Congress
man Warreri will give up the certabi-
ity of Ms1 seniority iri' the House for
the uncertainly of unhorsing Sena
tor Josiafa W. Bailey.
SHOWING SIGNS Legislative
observers are' of the definijte opinion
that Representative Tarn C. Bowie,
the whirlwind frorii Ashe County, is
entertaining ideas of opposing Sena
tor Robert Rice Reynolds in the pri
maries of 1938. The Ashe man is
said to have mentioned the matter
behind closed doors on occasions and
last week he took an opportunity to
publicly praise Speaker Robert Grady
Johnson as the all-time champion pre
siding officer of the House. Mr.
Bowie supported Representative W.
L. Lumpkin, of Franklin, for the
Speakership in January. Speaker
Johnsori is said to be something of a
political heavyweight in the eastern
part of the State.
POURED OIL During the 1933
session of the Legislature the State
Department of Conservation and De
velopment was the object of almost
constant attack- Then Governor
Ehringhaus appointed R. Bruce Eth
eridge, of Manteo, as director' of the
department. Now Mr. Etheridge had
long been one of the most popular
members of the General Assembly
and has become one of the best liked
individuals in Raleigh. Result: not
one word of criticism of the Conser
vation Department has been heard on
the floor of either House this session
and bills with departmental endorse
ment have experienced smooth wa
ters. A good general knows how to
pick good lieutenants.
STRANGE It has been no secret
that in the past Representative Tom
C. Cooper, of New Hanover, has been
no friend of the parole system in
general.' Yet in this session Mr.
Cooper has introduced and fought
hard for a bill to revise the entire
parole set-up, and taking much au
thority from the Governor. A lot of
people around the Legislature are
wondering why this sudden change.
