At the Beth ware box in Kings
Mountain, Ronald Reagan won
heavily by a 2-1 margin over
Carter. The local results in the
presidential sweepstakes were:
West Kings Mountain, Carter
976 and Reagan, 871; East.
Kings Mountain, Carter 547 and
Reagan, 501; Grover, Carter,
318 and Reagan, 266; and
Bethware, Carter 266 and
Reagan, 485.
President Carter called
Reagan about 9 p.m. Tuesday
night to congratulate him and an
hour later went on national
television to concede as the GOP
nominee’s lead built toward a
landslide. In the early hours of
the evening it was obvious that
the Republican standardbearer
would easily attain the 270 elec
toral votes required for election
and that he would carry many
Republicans on his “coattails” to
victory. The early N.C. returns
gave Carter and Reagan each 48
percent of the vote with 1,158 of
2343 precincts reporting and
early projections that Reagan
had also carried both North and
South Carolina. Before it was
over, the incumbent president
had only a few states in his col-
unm.
Reagan, who had twice been
rejected as the Republican
nominee, is the oldest man ever

elected president and is the first
actor and the first divorced man
to capture the White House. He
is a former two term governor of
California. His victory marks the
first time since 1932 - when
Democrat Franklin Roosevelt
defeated Herbert Hoover - that
an elected incumbent has been
defeated.
President Carter and
Challenger Reagan narrowly
split the popular vote for North
Carolina’s 13 electoral votes
despite Democratic Gov. Hunt’s
strong re-election campaign.
Reagan won handily in South
Carolina. Except in Carter’s
Georgia, he won in the rest of
the South as well.
"HERFS SOUTHERN RAIUMRfS ANSWER TO THE
ENERGY SH0R1RGE FOR THE FURNITURE INDUSTRY.
Z 0)
'THE LONG AND...
The simple fact is, that the way the
energy situation is today and. undoubtedly,
will be tomorrow, railroads make more
sense for long hauls than trucks do.
Because railroads are a lot more energy
efficient than trucks.
But does that mean trucks will soon be
a thing of the past for the furniture
industry? No. We thiiik trucks have a
very definite place in the future
of transportation.
As long as trucks are
used in the right place
...THE SHORT OF r
The right job for trucks is the short haul
where the railroad begins and ends^at
distribution warehouses like this one.
We believe so much in this concept, and
its important iniplications for the future of
this country, that we've set up a system
to capitalize on our advantage for long
hauls and trucks' advantage for short
hauls. We've made interchange
agreements with over 150 trucking
firms all over our route to give you
dock to dock service even when
your dock isn’t on our railroad.
We think the wave of the future
is to have each mode of transpor
tation do what it does best
