High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - May 12, 1974, High Point, North Carolina J it cd a \ i Al Al banquet tuesday pc celebrates Golden decade by Forrest Cates i just found out that in be been going about the business of choosing candidates All wrong. The Way i have been doing it is to read All i can about the people even the ladies who Are running and maybe listen to a Little junk about them on television and look at some of the ads. Then say to hell with it and pick at random. By following this method. I am proud to say i have not in my voting lifetime backed More than a dozen winners in the various and sundry elections which Means that nobody can blame me for the mess we Are in now. But i am old enough to realize that no matter How Good i am at picking candidates somebody May be better. Like the lady who read and wanted to vote in the primary election last tuesday. She went to the voting Poilu and confessed that she could t rend the name on the ballot not claiming poor eyesight or anything like that hut just admitting that nobody had Ever taught her to rend writing much in read rending. One of the people who run the polling place had to go in the voting Booth with her and read the names to her off the ballot. Only thing was she did no to know anymore after he read them than she did before because she had never heard of any of those people. But finally the polling place person came to a Guy on the ballot running for school Board named Carr and that rang a Bell with the voter. A cars Are Nice. We need them a spake she and directed him to pull the lever. The voter ran across one other name that she liked. A Chap named Salmon. A i like Salmon. Pull it a she directed. She left the Booth beaming Over her accomplishments. Well now. I la have to admit that As smart As i am i never have thought of a candidate in terms of being edible or rid Able or anything other than somebody to cuss after he is elected. I have. Therefore gone tack belatedly to the tuesday ballot and viewed it from Thi new Angle. I now think it in to Nible maybe even and fixable to Choate candidates not on their self professed Merit hut on the Impact of their name. Nhy in the democratic contest for . Senate alone there were a Hare a Riddle and a Galifianakis. A Guy named after a Rabbit. I figure just might have some possibilities if stewed Long enough to get rid of the wild taste. On the other hand it seems to me that a candidate named Riddle might Start with a Handicap and i Don t think i would vote for a Galifianakis on the Chance that he might get elected and somebody would expect me to be Able to spell his name. A fellow by the name of free ran successfully for the state House nomination and it in t surprising. His name implies that he is going to make things hot for certain people Down in Raleigh when he gets there. A Short and a Webb also won despite the obvious conclusion that one might come up Short of expectations and the other weave a devious web. I he Way i figure it there were enough Short people to elect the Guy named Short. Hut i can t figure the la ebb making it Inlet they Are letting spiders Vole which would t really Surprise me All that much. There was a fellow named Sweatt running for Republican nomination to the Senate race. Even with a the extra a a to at the end. He did t come anywhere close to winning. But Back to the race with Carr and Salmon. Delicious or not Salmon didst make it. He was beat out by a Chap named fall things Deal. Which blows the hell out of my theory about names in politics. Which come to think of it is what usually happens to the theories i think up.

Inc., the largest manufacturer in the world whose showroom is located on interstate 1-85 near Here is celebrating its 72nd birthday this year. Bassett salesmen cover the Continental United states and puerto Rico. Bassett manufacturing plants employ thousands of workers. And a year and a half ago Bassett hired its first woman furniture designer in the history of the company. But wait a that in t the full Story a Charles Bassett head of the nine member design staff at Bassett said he could recall a woman Ever applying to the design staff before but that the company used a free Lance designer some years ago and a i think he did have a woman designer on his so a woman did indirectly influence some of the designs that eventually became Bassett furniture. If you re wondering if this May be the track record from women designers in the furniture Field you May just be right. Conservations with designers in this area which is the furniture production Center of the world produced Little knowledge of women in furniture designing. There Are growing numbers of a Interior designers a women who design room settings and entire Homes. But almost none apparently have gotten into the area of designing the furniture. A Young designer in High Point recalled there were three women in his design class at a state University a few years ago. But a i believe two to them dropped another older designer racked his brain to come up with the names of some women in the Field. But the Best he could do was think of some woman a up North a i done to know her personally but i be read her columns in some design another designer could recall some woman from Sweden who was very Good designer. I think she worked on the West coast but i Don t know if she is still in the Field or so Young Sally Rebovitch who is the woman designer now working for Bassett is enough of an innovation to warrant a closer look. As is often the Case in Landing jobs miss by Bovitch a being hired actually turned on somebody knowing somebody else. In her Case her father who is a boat designer in West Palm Beach. Fla., knew someone of influence at Bassett. Miss Rebovitch was Given an introduction to Charles Bassett but there the influence ended she emphasized a the Job was to be mine Only if i could produce a she said. At the recent Spring Southern furniture show. Miss Rebovitch had two baby cribs and two juvenile bedroom groupings in Bassett s line so apparently she now is an accepted member of the design staff. A at first the men were a Little leery of me a she admitted. A but they also were very at the Spring Market miss Rebovitch found out the hard Way that designing is extremely competitive. She had worked very hard on one project featuring a juvenile bedroom with a Formica finish in the popular Denim colors. The staff and salesmen had been enthusiastic about it and the Young designer was looking Forward to its Success. Just prior to the opening of the Market. Miss Rebovitch Learned that another see women on a finding Creasy greens big problem every so often i go to Raleigh in the morning for a meeting and As i am nearing Raleigh the radio picks up this program called a ask your neighbors. It is a hilarious program to me but i done to think that it s meant to be the people calling in Are dead serious. It works this Way housewives a or House husbands As the Case May be a Call in with various kinds of problems they think someone might be Able to help them with help them with often the announcer can help them or give them advice but if he can to the caller hangs up and Waits for someone to Call later in the program and give him a solution sometimes he gets two or three helpful hints. I listened to the program about a week ago and the Lead off caller wanted to know a where can i get some Creasy greens a then someone wanted to ask where she could get jewelry made from parts of the old Capitol building. A caller male wanted to know How he could get polyester knit off of a steam Iron. It seems that it stuck right on while he was ironing Over his pants. While listeners were mulling Over these problems someone called with an answer about the Creasy greens. She said that the other lady cannot get Creasy greens at All this time of year that Shell have to go out in the Fields in january and february and Hunt for them a real problem came next. A lady said that she had been wearing passionate Pink lipstick for some time and it inevitably leaves a film Between her lips. Not a Small film but a film thai really gets in the Way. About this time someone called in to say that Irons could usually be cleaned with Plain old formula 409, also there were detailed instructions for ironing polyester knits. A male caller phoned in to ask a or Tell rather a that the squirrels were bothering his Maple and Pecan Trees around by Faye Marks and he was going to shoot them. Any other suggestions Well this was followed by an irate caller who wanted to shoot cats that get after the squirrels. This was the beginning of world War Iii one caller suggested icily that anyone shooting cats would be reported to the humane society or police department. Then there were several who gave soliloquies on squirrels. An old Man called with a lengthy tale about a Guy who tried to get rid of squirrels. He built a Pond the squirrels swam across and climbed his Trees. He put funnels on the Trees and the squirrels got a running Start jumped Over the funnels a my climbed the Trees. Next he put All kinds of equipment on the limbs of the Trees. The squirrels scampered right on. Finally the Guy decided to shoot them bought a gun shells and a scope. Just As listeners were built up to a big Climax the caller a the old Man a softened his voice. He said that when the Guy looked through his scope and saw All those Little squirrels happily climbing the Trees and when he looked at them eyeball to eyeball he had a sudden change of heart. The Climax or anticlimax was that he decided to let the squirrels have the Trees. They do that much damage he said. The old Man was telling All this in such an awesome voice that it made you feel like vowing then and there to will All your Trees to the squirrels. There were other problems a How to Wash a hand printed Colo fast Bedspread How to get the Yolk out deftly when making devised eggs How to get rid of ticks in a a vacant lot. A lady called in asking How to get rid of mice and rats in the Walls of a rented House and she received several replies. By the end of the program i was in Raleigh. And i Felt Good about the state of the world. The lady knew where to get her Creasy greens even if she had to wait the woman knew How to Wash her hand printed Bedspread the Man knew How to clean his Iron the lady could get help about the rats and everybody knew that by gosh you d better not shoot squirrels or cats even if you have to build an extra room on the House for them. Its comforting i Tell you to turn on the radio and realize that watergate politics streaking and inflation suddenly become minute problems when you can to find any Creasy greens
