Stricken by a severe heart attack
recently, Wiliam N. Doak, who suc
ceeded James J. Davis as Secretary
of Labor in President ollover’s cabi
net, died at hi3 Virginia home near
Washington on October 23. at the age
of fifty-one.
Mr. Doak. a native of Rural Re
treat, Wythe County, Va., was the
first American-born Secretary of La
bor. Both his predecessors, William
B. Wilson and James J. Davis, of
Pennsylvania, were born in the Brit
ish Isles.

business college In Bristol, Va., the

about three years ago.
Among the noted acts in Mr. Doak’s
cabinet record was his fight to res
trict immigration and his position In
behalf of a snorter work day and
wek for labor. Re reached the phi
losophical con\dctlcn that a continu
ation of industry's mechanization
mast go parallel with “a well balan
ced humanitarian ana economic pro
gram to prevent us from reaching
a state of social dancer."
Studious and zeaicus in all he un
dertook, Mr. Doak’s twenty-live years
of activity in trie councils'of the Bro*
therhood o f Railroad Trainmen
brought him into every form of med
iation, conference and arbitration

der. He worked inc e&aantly with little
time for recreation. Most of his re
laxing periods were aevoted to work
in the gardens of his Lome overlook

He is survived by his widow, the
former Miss Emma Marie Cricher. of
Ironton, Ohio.

It seems that at last the State
has recognized the necessity for
widening the 12-fcot road from
Twin Oaks to Roaring Gap. Gov.
R. A. Doughton, who was in Ra
leigh last week, says ,that plans
for the improvement of this road
have been sent to Washington
for approval, with the request
that enough money be allocated
to do the work. The road from
Roaring Gap south is of the stan
dard width as are also the roads
north and west of Twin Oakj.
The section from Twin Oaks to
Roaring Gap is only 12 feet wide
and rapidly wearing off under the
heavy traffic. Citi_eri3 of the
County will be glad to see this
work started soon. It is likely
that portions of the road will be
relocated in order that many dan
gerous cgrves may be eliminated.
Local Enmployment Office
To Open Soon
Tiia employment office here will*
bo open about Nov. 10. This office
will bo operated undo’.- the super
vision of the local relief office. The
most needy of tho unemployed will
be registered here for work on
Highway 2G from Twin Oaks to
Roaring Gap.
Automobile license plates for the
town of Smarts have been ordered
and' should be on sale here within
the next 15 days.

ton, who was appelated by Gov
ernor Ehring mus ao a meniber
of the Committee from North
Carolina, to present the proposed
Park-to-Park Highway Project
to the proper authorities, visited
the office of eJecretary of the In
terior Ickes, anu presented the
merits of the proposition in the
most convincing manner possible.
Mr. Doughtcn thinks that building
this road will fit ui splendidly with
the Public Works Program of the
National Recovery Administration,
accomplishing the double purpose of
giving relief to the unemployed and
carrying out -the purpose of the es
tablishment of the Shenandoah and
Great Smoky Mountain National
l arks. This would be the finest re
creational highway in eastern Ameri
ca, if it should be bunt as proposed
near the crest of the. Blue Ridge, a
section of the country which for sce
nic beauty and gran ;ur is unsur
passed in any part of the United
States, if .not in the world.
Mr. Doughton maintains that it is

ployed work rather than to give them
deles and allow them to remain in
idleness; -a condition which if per
mitted to continue will grow progres
sively worse.
Representative Doughton, Senator
Byrd and others will see the Secre
tary again about the matter and If
necessary will carry it to the Presi
dent, as they are determined to leave
no proper means unemployed in
bringing about the much desired con
summation of this major project.

State Dry Laws Not Ef
fected By Election Tuesday
Liquor Will N>i Bo Legalized In Nor>Ji Carolina By Repeal
of Tiie 18f^Amendment—Goveiiior Eh inghaus Opposes
.Any Efitat-: To Change Siale Prohibition Laws Without A
Vote of The People.
As the election cn Nov. 7 approach-es it becomes more apparent that
many people have no clear conception of the issues involved. Many voters.
Lc.h repealiats and non-repealists, see n to think that immediately upon
the repeal of the 18th Amendment th it liquor will become legalized in
North Carolina. But such is not the case. The repeal of the 18th Amend
ment does not affect the status of N ,rth Carolina as a dry State in any
way except that it will place the bur an of enforcing the Stave- a dry l a
s upon State officers instead of upon ic Federal Government. After Nov.
7 liquor will still be illegal in North Carolina and will remain illegal till t
he General Assembly meets in 1935. 'hen the question of prohibition or U
galized liquor wil be put before the v tors of the State, for a decision Ai
editorial in the Raleigh Nev/s and Obs irver gives a clear exposition n* *’
real and false issues involved in the election Nov. 7. We reprint it here
with the hope that it will bring to voters a clear understanding of the
only real issue involved.
Wc may repeal National Prohibi m, bat vve cannot repeal tho li
quor problem.—Raymond Fossick, cad c-f the Rockefeller Commission.
On the 7th day of November the vo -j of North Carolina will go to the
pcll3 to record their vote on a single, simple proposition, to wit: Will North
Carolina hold a Constitutional Convention to decide upon its attitude as to
whether the Eighteenth Amendment (National Prohibition) will remain in
the Constitution ?
Nothing else is involved in the election that will be held on the 7th da;
of November.
And yet during the rather dull cam ,aign in North Carolina cn this mat
ter the voter who has read some of th speeches and statements of well
known advocates of Repeal and of op onents of Repeal would never drear
that only one issue is to be passed up n. to-wit: Whether North Cnrolin.
will vote to keep the Eighteenth Amendment in tho Constitution or U
consent to its being taken out. In view of the fact that, independent oi
how Nortn Carolina votes on the question, enough States have already
acted to make it certain that, before the New Year, the Eighteenth A
mend will be repealed, the vote in No o.-oliaa is more in the nature cl
registering an acquiescence or a protest than anything else. Since ever;
State in which the question has been submitted has voted for Repeal, r.c
body now believes that National Prohibition will survive the year, inde
pendent of the result in North Carol! .a..
oome weeks ago an advocate of Re cal, thinking to solidify and get out
the vote of those who long for the re .urn of., the saloon, made this declare
If in North Carolina we can roll up 75,000 majority for the repeal of
National Probiticn we can compel ^he Governor to call a special
session of the Legislature which v. e can force to repeal all the prohibi
tion laws on the statute books in this State.
Soon that braggadocio, a pro-saloon beast, was withdrav/n from circula
tion, but who gave it currency have used it quietly in an effort to
arouse tne interest of those v.ho wc. t saloons back. They hope to attract
that vote without losing the vote of hose who declare that, while they arc
opposed to National Prohibition, they do not favor a return of the saloons
In- the first place, those desiring to v ipe off all the prohibition laws from
the statute books of North Carolina, most of them put there by a vote v.
the people are evidently ignorant of t ie pledge made by Governor Eliring
haus when he was asking to be elected Chief Executive. They forgot al:r
that he is not the type of man who can be driven. Their memories an
shore. If they vvdi refresh their recoil elion, they wil recall that Governor
Ehringhaus made this declaration, in he summer of 1932 after both the
State and National Convention had adopted their platforms:
I wish to emphasize my oppositio j to and detomination to fight the
return of the saloons to North Caro na. I shall also vigorously.ouq.ose
any effort to change the law prohib nng the manufacture and sale of
bquor in the State of North Caroli without a vote of tho people.
In the light of this declaration nob >dy need be surprised that those ad
vocates of restoring saloons and their accompanying evils to North Care
lina nave soft-pedaled IN PUBLIC o: their boast that they “would com
pel the Governor’’ to aid in overthro . ing’the expressed decree of the per
pie. Governor Ehringhaus’ declaratio i, quoted above, shows two things:
1. That, so far as North Carolina p ohibiticn is concerned, he is ready U
make a determined fight in his opposition to “the return of the saloon ir
North Carolina.’’ This is a crusading declaration and when the Governo;
puts on his gloves to fight the return of the saloons, he will find by hi
side much of the militant spirit that dominated when State Prohibition w.
s voted.
2. Governor Ehringhaus served no' ce, too, that he will “virgorously cp
pose ANY EFFORT to change th law prohibiting the manufacture nr:
sals of liquors in the State of North Carolina without a vote of the pec
Here vve have it straight: The Governor cannot be driven to cal-a sec
sion of the Legislature to repeal the forth Carolina prohibition lrvvs,- h
will oppose any effort to change the 1 .ws by any legislature and lie serve
notice that if anybody wishes to secur • the re-opening of saloons and th
re-operation of stills in North Carolina, they must wait until the majorit;
of the people of North Carolina by a 'irect vote of the, people cf Nortl
Carolina cast their ballots to repeal t 3 laws. No election can be orderee
unul the Legislature meets iii Janua /, 1935, without a special session
So that no matter what happens to t i Eighteenth Amendment, nothing
can change the North Carolina laws prior to 1935. Therefore, those who
think a vote to repeal the Eighteenth Amendment in the election of Nov
ember 7th means a return of the sa-ioon will line! they cannot buy a drill!
in a North Carolina legalized saloon before the summer of 1935, and not '
hen unless by a direct vote of the eople of North Carolina a majorit;
votes affirmatively to start the stills nd to re-open the saloons to returr
to their debauchery of the people.
Not only did Governor Ehringhaus, .he chosen head of the State Govern
rnent and leader of the dominant political party in the State, pledge him
self against any effort for a return of he saloon, but also in the same
campaign, Senator Reynolds, the leader and pioneer in North Carolina for
the repeal oi the Eighteenth Amendment, made this declaartion and
pledge as to North Carolina prohibition:
I emphatically oppose the return of the saloon and shall similarly
oppose any change in the law which is not first ratified by a constitu
tional vote of the people.
opiivcs uie gun or me pro-saloon advocates of forcing the Governor
to call a special session of the Legislature or moving in any way tu ;.ec...
a return of the saloon in North Carol na—no matter what course is foilovs
§d elsewhere—without a majority of the people casting a Hal lot for ■> r
turn to the terrible days which were so had that the people of the State
rose up in righteous wrath and outlawed the saloon and the still.
Not long aitter the pro-saloon ad’ pcates sought to get votes for the re
peal of the Eighteenth Amendment by holding out to thirsty citizens the
such a vote would soon open saloons in North Carolina, a prominent op
ponent of repeal, made a declaration quite as wide of the mark. He appeal
ed for vetes by this prediction of evil to come:
Ii tire voters of North Carolina in November cast a majority of
votes in favor of repealing the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitu
tion, they will be casting a vote that will result in the rejreal of the
Turlington act and all of the prohibition laws and a re-opening of the
saloon in every part of North Carolina.
That method of appealing for votes against Repeal will not bear the
light. It ought not to have been made. It is calculated to mislead the vot
ers. Such an appeal for votes against repeal raises an issue that does not
-xist in this campaign, for the following reasons:
1. Repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment would do nothing whateve:
except put an end to Constitutional National Prohibition. That and nothin;
2. Repeal of the Eighteenth Amen 'ment doe3 not modify or repeal the
Webb-Kenyon law protecting dry States.
-C.C.C. Is Modern
j Giant QS Wood
Chopping, Digging anti Building Fo
| Six Months In Western Forests.
I (By Rennie Taylor, Associated Pres;
| Staff Writer.
San Francisco, (AP)—A modern
giant who has been chopping, dig
ging and building for six mcntSe in
j the forests and deserts of the West
hanturn ed in a record of mighty
accomplishments—one that vies with
tlio doings of Paul Bunyan.
Paul Bunyan is the legendary Co
lossus of the north woods.
He was the fellow, lumberjacks
my, who dug the Great Lakes. Ho
used them as water holes for hi;
due ox, which measured 42 ax-handk
lengths between the eyes and left
racks so far apart nobody could
trace him when he ran away.
With the prodigiouaness of this
iengendary set-up there is, at las.
something in the way of actual ac
cornplishments that can be compared
It is the work of the new giant—the
Civilian Conservation Corps—in the
ninth array corps area, comprising
the states of California, Oregon
Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Monta
na, Utah and Wyoming. It embrace:
the first six months’ “hitch” of th:
men recruited from city streets.
The 93,000 men of the corps in the
area did approximately 1G0,000 000
man-hours of work from April 15 to
October 1, figures released by arm:
and forest service authorities show
ed. On this basis, the men receive,
pay aggregating $16,800 000 and at.
$6,000 000 worth of food.
That’s not such a bad compariscr
with the apocryphal accounts of Paul
Bunyan’s bookkeeper, Johnny Ink
slinger, who worked on balance sheets
is nig as the side of a barn with
i fountain pen supplied by a hose
running from a barrel.
These "tree-trooperS” spent 223.171
man-days fighting forest fires. Vii
tually all of the 10,000 conservation
workers in Oregon saw service o;
the blazing fronts where 10,000,000
000 square feet of line lumber wu
destroyed by the worst conflagration,
of that kind in the history of th
Many of these conservation work
ers, coming from the sidewalks <
New York, the streets of Chicago an.
points between, never saw a re.-,
forest before, much les3 a forest fire
' We put shovels into their hands '
said L. S. Garwood, veteran Oreg
fire fighter, “and showed ’em whs
they were for. We shewed 'em hc\
to build a fire line and how to ac
in each situation. After, that the,
knew how to follow orders.”
Besides fire fighting, the CCC
men cleared about 680 000 acres e
rodent and insect pests, climbini
trees with loads of poison and mixing
tons of grain into lethal banquets fo.
rats and mice. They built 1200 bridge.
constructed5938 miles of trails ant
roads, and 3170 miles of telephone
lines; removed fire hazards from
73,370 acres of land and cleared 2,0Cl
miles of roadside.
They constructed small building:
by the hundred.
Such are the things that have giver
reality to a giant more formidablt
hail Paul Bunyan: and Paul was bon
.n a lying contest.

very important meeting held in the
otTice of Representative Doughton
Monday morning was one at which,
upon the invitation or Mi\ Doughton,
Mr. F. E. Mollin, Secretary of the
Ameriea'h National Livestock Asso
ciation, and Representative Burch, of
Virginia, were present.
It was the purpose of Representa
tive Doughton in calling this meeting
to continue his efforts to have the
Government do something to assist
the cattle producers of the United
States receive the same benefits from
the Government as has teen given
those producing wheat, hogs, corn,
tobacco and other commodities.While
the prices of the latter named com
modities have materially increased
the price of cattle has steadily de
clined. Mr. Mollin stated that the
Government, through the triple A and
the Relief Agency, will expend in the
very near future, at least twenty mil
lion dollars in the purchase of cattle
or beef of the cheaper grade for the
>’ • purpose of aiding the cattle
;n Justly and in carrying out the pur
poses of the Relief Agency. Mr.
Doughton has had this matter up
with the Secretary of Agriculture
numerous times in recent months and
feels now. that the turning point in
the curve of the cattle industry has
been reached and from this on the
trend in price will be upward instead
of downward. He thinks, however,
that tie.' increase in price will neces
sarily oe slow owing to the large
surplus of cattle and the number of
people yet, unemployed. Mr. Mollin
rear'senLing; the Department of Agri
culture, expressed a very deep inter
est in the matter, and assured those
present that every reasonable effort
would bo made to place the cattle in
dustry upon a profitable, instead at
a losing basis.
