Athe High Point Enterprise Piedmont Center of wintry High Point North Carolina thursday december 28, capital Short shots Enterprise Bureau sir Walter hotel i in he nov vvkk1ll Raleigh dec. 28.�?secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgen thu a Day or so ago called at Tenton to the fact that of ail Federal taxes something like 68 per cent Are upon the consumer. In his list he named a Good Many tax i items which Are not paid directly by the consumer to the government hut which May properly be classed As a consumer taxes just the same. Looking Over North Carolina s j tax collections for the last fiscal year which ended june 30, it Sticks out very plainly that in j this state More than half the entire Revenue is derived from two single tax items Laid squarely and without Remote camouflage upon the consumer twit sales tax s and gasoline tax gallon age and inspection the entire state Revenue from All quires amounted to $68,-1 946 2.57. Of which $36,596. J 443.8b came from sales tax collections $10,997,883.87gallon age tax on gasoline $24,4 40.-996.29 and gasoline inspection fees $1,157,563.70 making the percentage on these direct Consumers taxes 53 plus. That a not taking into consideration other tax items which Are eventually passed along to or. And mrs. T. Heel user. A Ira test prominent figures in Young democratic circles to Grad-1 uate into a state Job seems to lie j miss jewel Browning who serv Jed As Secretary for the Ydes under the regime of president Gordon Gray. Her name is noted among the appointees to the labor department staff when additions were made possible by i agreement to cooperate with the i Fede tul folks in wage hour in i for Cement. A some time ago there were general predictions that Guilford county would have no a major candidate for Congress except John Caffey of Greensboro but from word reaching this Bureau it now appears that another entry from the Quaker Bailiwick is quite Likely a candidate who probably would be classed As a major Quot in two respects. The reported aspirant is no newcomer to politics not even to sixth District Congress races. He is none other than Edney Ridge. Big radio plan of wbk who ran two years ago on a straight out a new deals platform and who got a rather respectable vote total. Head be a a major a a both As to his military title and the character of his candidacy. This bureaus operatives have it that he has been visited with delegations and deluged with requests to run and. Dither that he has practically decided to do so. A democratic state chairman Gregg Cherry must have his Gaston precincts in Good working or Der at least the county is one of three reported by Jackson Day Campaign Headquarters to have gone tar beyond their quotas. The other two in the category Are Gates and Polk. Director John d. Larkins also has gathered the Coin in his Home county of Jones which is one of four listed As having met quotas. Others Are Rutherford first in Tho stale to do so Yancey and Yadkin. It is Worth nothing perhaps that All these except Gates and Jones Are More or Les plagued with republicans from time to Lime. Maybe that a Why they Are a bit More Likely to kick in with funds upon proper urging. Tru v t special to the Enterprise an , dec. 28.
