Cardwell To Be Secretary To Governor RICHMOND, Va., J-n. 10 H. ,Cardwell, assistant to Carlton Jackson, examiner of records for 'Richmond, and formerly ensign in fhe United States naval reserve force, attached to the fifth naval district, with headquarters at Norfolk, will Jbe named secretary to Governor-elect :E. Lee Trinkle. when the executive takes office. i As was predicted some time ag'o in The News Leader, Colonel LeRoy Hodges .present budget head under Davis, will be retained In present capacity by the incoming executive. Both announcements, it is understood, are likely to "be made. Mr. Cardwelh like father, D. Cardwell, is a lawyer, although he has not practiced his profession since the close of the world war. He pass- ed the state bar examination in 1016. is an A. B. graduate of Randolph- Macon College .and holds the degret of P. L. from the "University of Rich- mond. He is a member of the Phi Kappa Signal fraternity. It is understood the appointment of Cardwell to the office of secre- tary to Governor Trinkle will be ot a more or les's temporary nature, and that Mr. Cardwell will not terminate his connection with the office of the examiner of records here. During the cession of the general assembly Mr. Cardwell probably will remain in the office Of the next governor. It is isnders'ood the budget depart- ment may be moved from the "of the governor into some other part capitol or library buikl- lif the inauguration of the All Is Ready For Annual Banquet Arrangements have been completed for the annual banquet of Cham- ber of Commerce, which will be held at Hjlton Hall on Friday night at 8 o'clock. Secretary H. B. "VVatkins said today that 307 invitations had been issued, the entire membership being included and a number of spe- cially invited guests. Jt is not ex- pected that there will be a 100 pel- cent response as in so large a mem- bership there are of necessity men unable for some reason to be present. -There is seating capacity for 300 persons in the hall where the ban- quet will be served. Mr. VVatkins vs- pressed regret today that there was not room for more .stating that the organization would like to invite a number of people as its guests, this being impossible under prevailing conditions. Next year it is hoped the banquet will be held in the din- ing hall, which is being included in the Masonic Temple and which will seat five diners comfortably. Thomas B. McAdams, of Rich- mond, president of the American Bankers 'Association, will arrive in Danville on Friday morning and will be entertained privately at luncheon at the country club. William Breach, music director of the schools, is corning to lead in the sine- ing. The programme printed for the occasion includes the annual report of the secretary and a number of re- for activity during the current year. After the serving of the banquet, teller? will announce the names of the suc- cessful director- voted on by the membership at large by mail. Col. A. B. Carrington. president of the. or- ganization, will make his annual re- port, after which Frank Talbott will introduce the speaker of the evening. is to talk on "The Day After To- morrow Music will be provided during the banquet by the '.Vestbrock Orchestra.

Bruce Bowe, president, and K. Kay Kichard.son, .secretary tuid treasurer of the Virginia fieal Estate Association, recently made a tour of the larger cities of Virginia .includ- ing Danville, and reports that tne real estate men everywhere are en- dorMng the associations' program. Officers of the association declare that the present tax on mortgage notes is manifestly unfair. It is claimed tHat the present high tax rate is causing money, formerly in- vested in loans to be withdrawn from that field and placed in which are either tax exempt or sub- ject to a much smaller tax. In this way a scarcity of money available for loans has resulted and the build- ing of dwellings and other structures has been seriously hampered. The proposed bill would decrease the tax from to 50 cents a hun- dred, all of it to go to the state Un- der the present law cents goes to the state and 30 cents to the munici- pality. Association officials declare that the loss of revenue which would result, would be made up in two ways. It is estimated that more than 50 per cent, of the mortgage notes have escaped taxation by technical moves, and it is said that in other states where pimilai reductions have been made the increased amount tif notes declared because of the more reasonable taxation has more than rhade up for the loss. It also is ex- pected that the increased building a- a result of the making of more loans would bring additional revenue. The real estate men again will make a fight on the lawyers fee measure which has been recommend- ed by the State Bar Association and whicn will be introduced at the opening session pf the legislature The object of this bill is to prevent all persons not an attorney 'i license from performing such acts as, have considered to belong to the peculiar province of the legal profession It is charged by the law yers that real estate agents have been drawing deeds .leases and other docu- ments of a legal nature and, in some instances, been charging clients for the performance of these legal services. Real estate agents declare they can draw these instruments with as much efficiency as the but that they deny that the practice of charging for services exists to any great extent PREPARING TO LEAVE FOR BELGIUM ins executive. f. who Is recov- ering from a 1-mg of lypfioM fever, was able yesterday to be out for the first time since he was strick- en in September.
