THE PERQUIMANS WEEKLY, HERTFORD. N. C, FRIDAY, JUKE Z4, 13
UNITED. STATES ENAJOR,
Editor's Note With the ad
journiwent df Congress, Senator
.Reynolds will discontinue his
weekly column until the next
session is convened in January.
The Senator has asked that we
give to readers his sincere appre
ciation for the interest shown in
his efforts to keep 'them informed
with regard to Congressional developments.
As the third session of the Seventy
fifth Congress comes to a close in an
eventful election year, it is already
evident that the Seventy-sixth Con
gress convening next January will be
of vital importance to the country.
In some respects, it may even sur
pass from the standpoint of legisla
tive policies, the sessions of the last
There are many reasons for such a
viewpoint. Farm legislation enacted
this year will have undergone the test
of actual application, and it will be
apparent whether it will answer the
needs of the farmer or require revis
ion. The country will know more
about the wage and hour bill being
pushed through the Congress as this
column is written. Reorganization
of Federal agencies will, no doubt,
again be to the forefront. The so
called "nuisance taxes," including the
Federal gasoline taxvand other excise
levies on automobiles and automotive
parts and accessories, will expire in
1989 and consideration must be given
to reenactment or allowing them to
In fact, all indications point to
wholesale revision of the tax structure
and there is some hope for the elim
ination of duplicate taxes now im
posed by the Federal government
and by the states. In addition, it now
seems likely that full consideration
will be, given to the financial prob
lems confronting the railroads.
To these and other questions of im
portance at home, must be added the
all-important matter of Foreign
: policies. Events in Eua-ope will un-
doubtedly reach the point during the
next few weeks where we may expect
new difficulties or an easing of the
war tension. Neutrality and embargo
programs may have to be revised in
a new effort to keep the United
States from becoming a party to for
Equally as important is the general
decline abroad of treaty and agree
ment values. "Unofficial wars," such
as are now being waged, hold all the
horror of declared war and can only
be halted by tfce weight of world
Last but not least, is the item of
emergency expenditures. Unless there
is some, upturn in general business
conditions and employment, the next
Congress will be faced with impor
tant decisions as to what extent the
Federal government shall provide re
lief and "pump-priming" funds. It
is already apparent that new and in
creased revenue will be required if
more billions are appropriated in the
years immediately ahead.
As a result of the development
mentioned, members of , Congress,
both Senators and x Representatives
will undoubtedly- keep their ears to
the ground during the months ahead
and make every effort possible to ob
tain the viewpoints of the men and
-women on the streets and along the
;v rural highways to the end that their
views may be weighed when legisla
: tive policies and programs are formu
lated. . "- !

triumphant new career, that clever
( and popular ex-star, Dolores Costello,
a delightful Warner Bros, drama
called Beioved tsrat" is scneouuea
as the coming feature attraction at

tiferous youngsters. Dolores plays
the part of her teacher, the principal !
of a school conducted on the strictest j
of lines. And it is Dolores who re
forms the mean, selfish little creature
and changes her into a perfect young
