Not me because he said it i did t. Anyway he reports that none of the men who interviewed him would give him a Job. They even say Why they give him a Job. Of course i can to believe that or Kirk really does no to know Why those Guys hire him a that is of he had just stopped and thought about a few of the things lady stenographers have that men stenographers done to. I mean that was kind of had about old Kirb. But really nothing to what was happening in the bully old armed forces. There is this Magazine called a a soldiers which is published by the army. The editors started putting in a monthly color pinup of a lady in As near nothing As the general would allow. They figured it would increase circulation both of the soldiers and the Magazine but it was quickly evident that something bad has happened to our fighting men. Letters started coming in protesting the display of female nudity in the Magazine. A a in a amazed a the general in charge of the Magazine was quoted As saving probably translated by his . Man from a what the swinging hell is wrong with those sissies a anyway the army said that Reader response was 48 cent to 87 rent against cheesecake the remaining of cent who wrote in asked for an occasional male pinup.

By Robert Marks Enterprise staff writer the candidates Are wondering where the school bus went. Democrats and republicans alike report that school busing has dropped Down the list of issues on the minds r4 voters in North Carolina this fall. Taxes education roads and crime Are subjects the voters Are talking the most about to gubernatorial and legislative candidates. The candidates Are puzzled hut relieved. The situation now contrasts sharply with the campaigning in the primaries last Spring. Then school busing loomed As a major Issue in the elections this year. The change is especially apparent in the Campaign of Republican Jim a Holshouser for governor. During his primary Battle with Jim Gardner for toe Republican gubernatorial nomination a Holshouser made a trip to Washington to talk with atty. Gen. John Mitchell rep. Gerald Ford the minority Leader in the House and the four Republican congressmen from North Carolina. A Holshouser returned t o Winston Salem and on feb. 25, in a statement about a a major Issue a expressed his opposition to a the forced busing of school in High Point last week however a Holshouser admitted that busing was no longer a major Issue. He said he did not know Why and did not offer even to credit president Nixon with bringing about the change a Holshouser did Point out that schools had opened across North Carolina this fall with a minimum of problems. This could be a Factor in the drop of busing As an Issue he commented. A education roads taxes Are what the people Are talking about the most a a Holshouser said. A similar assessment came from democratic candidates who gathered near High Point on wednesday night for a Campaign strategy session with their gubernatorial candidate Hargrove skipper Bowles. Bowles touched gingerly on school busing during his primary campaigns against la gov. Pat. Taylor. The Issue has not surfaced in his Campaign against Holshouser. A abusing is Way Down As an Issue for the voters a Walter Devries the pollster with the Bowles organization said. A your polls show that taxes education and crime Are the major concerns of the voters the democratic candidates for the general Assembly agreed. Comments by several from both the Eastern and the Western sections of the state indicated a Lack of voter concern Over busing. A voters up my Way want to talk about roads and taxes a said Glenn Morris of Marion who is a candidate for the House from the District that includes Mcdowell and Yancey counties. A they Are talking a lot about roads in particular a Morris continued. A we feel what we Are not getting our share of Road Money in the showing agreement with the assessment expressed b y Holshouser the democrats said they Felt the Normal opening of school this fall had done much to quiet voter concern Over busing. The different Campaign strategies of the democrats and republicans were apparent however in other activities in High Point. During his visit to High Point Republican party Headquarters at 112 s. Main St., Holshouser acknowledged that the polls show him trailing Bowles. He stressed that the margin was Only nine cent however when the undecided vote was consider the High Point Enterprise sunday morning september 17, 1072.

And expressed Confidence that the coat tails of president Nixon would help overcome this before the election on nov. 7. Holshouser indicated that financing his Campaign is a problem. At one Point during an interview he commented a it takes about $38,000 to mount a state wide billboard in a Brief talk to party workers Holshouser said a we need to get a lot of support from the Little people let them know we have no vested interests backing our High Point republicans Are particularly pleased at the announcement that de Mendenhall and Sloan Gibson Are heading a finance committee in the area for the Holshouser Campaign. Most of the Money raised by the committee will go to the Holshouser Campaign state wide a portion will go toward the Holshouser Campaign Effort locally. A this Means that for the first time we May have As much Money As the democrats locally a one Republican worker said. As Holshouser is reaching out for president Nixon a coat tails the democrats Are still keeping their distance from sen. George Mcgovern their presidential candidate. In his Campaign Bowles continues to keep Mcgovern at arms length on one Side and the established party organization on the other. The democratic legislative candidates Are following suit in regards to Mcgovern. A we just done to talk about him up my Way a said Morris in a comment typical of the reaction from other candidates. The state wide democratic concern is confirmed by Devries. His last poll shows Bowles ahead of Holshouser 58 cent to 42 cent Devries said. A but ticket splitting is going to occur a Devries said. A about half the democratic vote in North Carolina will probably go to president Nixon. That makes for a volatile situation for the rest of the that is the situation Holshouser finds so encouraging in his Campaign to become North Carolinas first Republican governor in 72 years.
