Cullman Banner, The (Newspaper) - October 8, 1937, Cullman, Alabama We Believe In Cullman County THE CUL ANNER YOUR NEWSPAPER In the Heart of Alabama's Rich- est Agricultural District Volume 13 CULLMAN, ALABAMA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1937. 5 Cents a Copy Catholic Leaders Forgive Promise Senate Race Support JL JL Powerful Mobile Machine Lines Up Behind Cotton Tom Against Hill. BY WILLIAM B. IIUIE A strange and significant development occurred in Alabama politics this week when Catholic leaders in several sections of the state announ- ced their intention of "burying the hatchet" with Cotton Tom Heflin and supporting him for the United States Senate. After all Tom's bitter crusades against the Pope and his expressed fear of "papal legions sailing into Chesapeake such a reunion was believed impossible. But the strong Mobile city machine, dominated by Catholic leaders, came out openly for Heflin this week. High Birmingham Catholics were quick to follow the lead and it was generally predicted that Cotton Tom will receive a substantial ma- jority among the more than Catholic voters in the state. This strange alliance, which proves once again what kind of bedfellows politics can make, is a result of the strong opposition to Rep. Lister Hill's stand on the court packing and Wages-and-Hours Bills. The Catholic Church has dog- gedly opposed all efforts of the Federal Government to extend its control over industry and agricul- ture. It's most amazing display of power against the New Deal came when it turned the heat on the New York State Legislature and forced it lo reject the Child Labor Amend- ment by a tremendous majority in the face of direct appeals from Roosevelt, Farley and Governor Lehman. The Mobile machine showed its power last week when it turned on former Mayor Harry Hartwell in the mayoralty race and defeated him in the run-off when he had lacked only 12 votes having a ma- jority in the first primary against three opponents. This development and other mounting opposition, to Hill have caused political wiseacres to re- appraise Heflm's chances in the Senatorial race and to concede him better than an outside chance to win. Hill is sitting squarely on the Roosevelt coattails in the race and vowing to "support the President and ask no while Cotton Incendiarism Suspected in Burn- ing of Bridge Chairman J. R. Allredge of the Cullman County ttoard of Finance and Control, declared today that evidence in the burning of the Kii- patrick bridge Monday night gave every indication of incendiarism and that he believed the culprit wouid be apprehended soon.

Mr. Allredge indicated that the. Board of Finance and Control. would take immediate steps to re- place the bridge and make ar- rangements to handle the traffic by detour until another bridge was erected.

The enlistment in the United States Marine Corps of Guy C. Han-' vey, son of Mr. and Mrs. William F. Hanvey of Cullman, was BOB L. POOL The Rev Bob L. Pool, B.

Rotary Hears Siory of The European Convention Farmers were back at work In is week after a two-day rest Monday and Tuesday due to slight rams and murky skies Businesses in Cull- man were gratified with the nice shjwn in sales over the veek end and tnrough Monday ano Tuesday. Meanwhile, estimates as to the to- tal number of bales of cotlon which would be ginned in Cullman Coun- ty during ...is season ranged from 44.003 to bales far surpassing the total of bales which were produced in uiis county last year. County Agent C. T. Bailey saic! that after the early rainy season, his estimate had been reduced consid- erably, but at present, with cotton opening as fast as it is, it wouid not surprise him if the total passed even his original estimate. Other authorities on the subject were quick to point out that esti- mates should not be governed too much by comparative figures with amounts ginned last year at this time, since the county is producing more now due to the early rains Meeting Held at Court House On Thursday afternoon at thej Court House, a mass meeting if Cullman farmers was being held for lhe purpose of discussing van- ous phases of new farm legislation and to get the farmers' opinion as to the kind of an Agricultural Pro- gram that would be best for 1938 Leaders in the state have asked that several questions be presented in regard to the 1938 program so that various opinions could be heard. Price StiU Unsettled The mean price of cotton over this week was centering around eight cents, and some disappoint- ment was felt in many circles over the unsteady price. Many farmers were slow to sell, and shopped at every place before selling, if they sold at all. Draft beer ft r Cullman County, seemed a certainty today, as au- thorities viewed the Beverage Con- trol Act's provision that commu- nities with "dominant foreign ele- ment" could be allowed bulk beer Only one other community in Ala- bama has been made that conces- sion so far Meanwhile legr.l 'suds' received quite a iceeplicn in Cullman, HERE THHV THE WINNERS The v. inners in The Banner contest conducted during the referendum campaigns are Rev.

In three other counties where referendums been held, the Drys have not only held their own but have actually rolled up larger majorities than they polled in the March 10 election. In Dale County, of which OzarK is the county seat, the bone-dry forces swamped the Repealists by more than three to one. and this week Autauga. which adjoins drip- ping wet Montgomery County, re- mained in the Dry column by a safe majority of 250 votes.
