A Maximus a lyrics. Nil mom in 10im pm part of a speech y invitation Hon. A. J. Maxwell re told at Charlotte yes it Cray his theory of How North Carolina can rebuild and extend her Road system in four years without borrowing Money. Increasing revenues and a recapitulation of his own statistics have convinced or Maxwell that he was unduly conservative in estimating that 50 millions would be available during the Quad Ennius of or new construction the amount will attain nearer to 75 millions he advised an enthusiastic c harlots audience. We have not taken Issue with i or. Maxwell As to the probable availability of his 50 millions. What we have done is to insist that he exaggerates what can be done with 50 millions. He submits the estimate without pointing to the fact that the use of 50 millions for construction during four years time would be no very notable in Rease Over w hat is timing is knit lining the current four years. The defect in the vision of reconstructed main highways extend d arteries and revolutionized Arnoto Market roads is apparent Only to those who know the Limi actions in 50 millions of Road Noney. The important Point in or. A la weirs address of yesterday Las not the estimate of availability that he made but the Forth ight declaration that he favored Inte dment of the state Law to moved from it a provisional i or Sion of Highway funds. Not Only does that a provisional diver Ion tie up millions of the Road Noney and hold it out of the serv be for which it was collected but encourages the budget makers o Trust to the Road funds for genial fund needs. No Man running or governor is More explicit in advising those budget makers to it their faces firmly against it i version As a policy than is or. Tax Vivell. That we repeat is the a portent statement in his Highway speech. Alls Girt loss blow to Progress the reaction of the news and observer to the disabilities of High Point established by the supreme court decision in our hydroelectric project litigation is expressed briefly As a a blow to the Raleigh newspapers comment follows in full All the members of the North Carolina supreme court concurred in the two opinions of chief Justice Stacy sustaining two injunctions issued against the City of High Point to restrain it from completing a $6,500. Oil Hydro electric development which it had started on the Yadkin River with the Aid of Federal funds and by authority of acts of Congress and the legislature and previous court decisions. But the fact that the Law can be assumed to have been stated correctly does not prevent the decision from being an unfortunate one. The court has now held that the Power of condemnation does not extend to Public property. If that doctrine is to be followed in other cases it might mean an entire reversal of the interprets Tion of its rights under which the state Highway commission has proceeded for the last 20 years. Moreover the very private Power company which has now successfully blocked the High Point development might easily find itself embarrassed if not frustrated by the doctrine. It is virtually impossible to contract a water Power project of the magnitude of that proposed by High Point without flooding some publicly owned property. It is True that no such obstacles have been placed in the Way of developments in the past of the Duke Power company and other private interests. But the lawyers for the Duke Corr it any have shown How it might be done in the future. It is True that the decision of Hie court leaves the Way open for remedial legislation. Such legislation May he passed in time to prevent wide expansion of the doctrine that property of lied for one Public use is sacred from use for another Public purpose even when the property is not essential to the first use but is Vita to the second. If. As in the past the Way is smoothed for such developments by private interests in the future the effect of the decision will still be a blow to Progress. The High Point project might have been of tremendous Benefit to that City and All its residents. It is difficult to see How it Conli have injured anybody except the Duke Power company and even the injury to that organization would have been slight As it would have been deprived of Only a Small fraction of its present business. The Victory was won nominally by Yadkin county but the Victory belongs to the Duke Power company. Significantly enough Yadkin county did not enter the Case until after the kit wer company had failed in earlier court actions of its own. The second Point on which the decision of the supreme court rests also pre in a Strong contrast to what has happened in the past when private companies were seeking to construct similar developments. The state of North Carolina objected to the action of the Federal Power commission in requiring a License of the aluminium company for a similar project on the same River on the ground that the development would be helpful to the state. Apparently if the development is to be done by the City of High Point with the Aid of Federal funds in some Way it becomes harmful tor the state entered the High Point Case to object to the action of the Power commission although no development was being prevented. It is to be hoped that High Point May yet find some Way to proceed with a project first authorized in 1937. There can be no justification for a theory that development of water Power on the Yadkin River is highly desirable when done by the Duke Power company or the aluminium company. But is harmful when done by a Public Agency for the Benefit of All the Loop to. When necessity Lori is a it Ilse the insincerity of the contentions of our principal debtors of the world War period that they could not meet their obligations to the United states is brought the War debt pledge marked the beginning of the failure of Britain As a dominant political and economic Force in the world. Much of British Power rested in world Confidence in the integrity of a British undertaking. With Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people in a Small tobacco town in North Carolina there was a family of six children. They were All singers except one and he even carry a tune. Phis one was a boy. All the others shone at anything to do with music except the one whose first name was Jimmy. The family was always being called on to entertain. Church socials. Lawn parties. Jimmy Felt it keenly because the rest of the family could sing and he . He longed to Shine. Wanted to be somebody. But How everybody told him that even if he did t Shine he had personality. He made a pleasing impression on people. So Jimmy did a bit of thinking. He decided to develop his personality. That idea is now making a millionaire of him. His full name is James Kern Kyser the town where he was born and still lives Calls his Home is Rocky mount. North Carolina. Bul the world knows him As Kay Kyser. You have listened to his music you May have seen that popular movie a you re right. That a wrong it was during his High school Days that Jimmy decided to try out his idea. He threw himself into the students activities and at once began to make an impression on his fellow students. Soon he was elected cheer loader. Now he was being brought up before the whole student Boily anti could exert his personality. He did. He worked out new cheers and new ways of presenting his new cheers. He put showmanship into his cheer leading. Everybody liked him. Ile became popular. Entering the University of North Carolina he decided to carry out the idea which had worked so Well in High school. So he became a cheer Leader there too and achieved his ambition to be recognized As the Best organizer of cheering that had Ever graced the Campus of that University. The students needed a dance orchestra. Jimmy Kyser wanted to organize one. Rut he knew very Little about music. He loved to listen to music. But he was t a musician. However the University did need a Campus orchestra so he organized that. He was chosen Leader. He decided to put his personality into his orchestra and it became so popular that he took it to other colleges to play. Business boomed. Radio grabbed him. He added touches of his own. You be heard them a a evening folks How Vail a a so Long and his song titles. A key Kyser a College of musical knowledge Quot became famous almost Over night. Business boomed Hollywood snatched him. And he still does t consider himself a musician. Thousands know More about music than he does but they Haven to developed the personality which has made him Rich and famous. And he a Only 34 years old Why Don t you consider developing your personality of you go Al Init it the right Way. It May be your biggest asset. Or.

Winched smells. A a in none of the 1.1 letters selected As typical of the Reader reaction was there the slightest hint of a cheer from Blind isolationists from the anti in Nail bloc or from the nazi sympathizers. American readers apparently regard Winchell As a Champion of the democracies and so bitterly anti totalitarian As to endanger american neutrality.

Bruce Cotton in Washington Taft outsmarted by Tom Dewey in Maryland a a race Washington april 23. A real truth about the race that did no to come off in Maryland s g. O. P. Primary is that astute senator Taft was just a wee mite outsmarted by supposedly unsophisticated Tom Dewey. Tafts explanation that he stayed out of the race because the Bosses were lined up for Dewey was True enough. What he did t add was that the Bosses could have been lined up for Taft the Dewey people just naturally got to them first. K Maryland s g. O. Oil b has a factional a a fight Between sex gov. Bruce Catton Harry Nice and w. F. Browning. Sex mayor of Baltimore who Are running for the Senate with control of the state g. O. P. The real stake at Issue. They did t want a presidential primary contest muddying the Waters and after the Dewey people got them lined up they begged Taft to stay out. He complied figuring the machines would swing the primary anyhow and that there was no sense getting in a family Row. But if staying out of a party Row lost Taft a delegation in Maryland it apparently won him one in West Virginia. Neither Taft nor Dewey has entered the primary there but some smart preliminary Spade work seems to have Given Taft the delegates. Taft a a samplers in West Virginia several weeks ago the Taft crowd decided to find out exactly what their prospects were in West Virginia. They sent a big Crew of canvassers on a weeks Auto tour of the state to make extensive a sampling Quot Straw vote tests. The canvassers incidentally decided they had to have some sort of name to operate under so they called themselves Quot the Institute of political research Quot. They had some funny exper inces. In a number of cases citizens they flagged for a vote would say Quot of. Yes eve heard of you people. You do a pretty scientific Job of analysing opinion done to you a two or three times a canvasser would Stop a by passer with Quot May i have a moment of your time a a and the by passer would simply give him a dime and hurry on. Anyway these polls convinced the Taft people that they would win if there was a contest but they did t want a contest if they could help it because there was an inside the party scrap on for state control so in the end they made out filing lepers and entrusted them to a West Virginia g. O. P. Bigwig with instructions not to file them unless Dewey filed. Meanwhile the Dewey group was eying the situation and likewise decided the scrap was a Good one to stay out of if possible. So they too made out filing papers and left them to be entered Only if Taft filed. Doubling in Taft Vii Dewey Odd part about it All was that the Man the Dewey crowd left their papers with was the same Man the Taft people Lett theirs with. F or a week or More he walked about town with two sets of filing tapers in his jeans. In the end of course he did no to file either and theres no contest. But Taft is due to get the delegates. Meanwhile in Washington the g. O. P. Race is beginning to take on a Quot Slop Dewey aspect the new yorker timing far out in front. There Are signs that his rivals Are beginning to gang up against him anyhow in All the other Camps you Are beginning to hear Quot you know Dewey would really make a swell candidate a for remember when Mother used to Tell us that if we were Good boys and studied hard wed grow up to become president looking Over the candidates list it seems a surprisingly Large number Are taking Mother seriously.
