Reports Increase In Net Earnings Guardian Corporation to (O.I.C.) today reported net earnings of 32 cents per share for the six months ended March 31, up from 29 cents a year ago. Net earnings were $152,660 on revenues of $5,798,220 compared to $139,180 and $4,867,857 last year. Pre-tax earnings were $298,660 for the period, versus $272,180 in 1975. Guardian's earnings for the second quarter were $97,902, or 20 cents per share, compared to $56,025, 12 cents per share, a year ago. Revenues rose to $3,027,552 from $2,531,185 in 1975, and pre-tax earnings from $56,025 to $97,902. The revenues and earnings reported for the six months and second quarter were operating records for the company. Leon A. Dunn, Jr., Guardian's president, said. the increase in earnings came mostly as a result of the company's health care operations, which have grown significantly in the past year, "we now have more beds open and facilities in operation than a year ago, and the occupancy of our facilities is .higher," he said. According to Dunn the company's land development division operated profitably, but he noted continued campground losses. "The sale of our campground interests is a high priority item. If we are successful in this endeavor, the impact on future earnings should be significant," said Dunn. During the six months period, 95 percent of the company's revenues were derived from its Guardian Care Division. Of the remaining five percent, 2.1 percent came from campground operations. Rocky Mount N.C. Telegram Wed., May 19, 19763 O'herron States Opposition To Additional Tobacco Tax RALEIGH - Ed O'Herron, Democratic candidate for Governor of North Carolina, says he strongly opposes any additional tax on tobacco. Speaking at a news conference, the Charlotte businessman said "It is time the governor's office spoke out for the tobacco industry, the state's most important crop product." O'Herron was also critical of "the attacks being made on tobacco from just about every side except the consumer." He said, "Secretary Butz and about half the federal agencies want to put the tobacco farmer out of business and, even in North Carolina, there are those who want to add to the burdens by raising the tobacco tax," he said. "I am not one of them." - O'Herron said that, if elected governor, he will see that the farmer's voice is heard clearly wherever decisions are made that affect his livelihood. "I am tired, too, of my liberal opponents talking about tax reform," O'Herron said. "The tax burden on North Carolinians is great enough and should not be increased by adding to the tobacco tax, the sales tax. income tax or any other b am opposed to any tax O'Herron said ( that agriculture today is a business and cited ways that he, as a businessman with more than 30 years experience, can help the farmers solve some of their problems.

"The most fundamental industry in any state or nation is agriculture. "I'm not sure this fact has been recognized by the administration in Raleigh or the one in Washington. Farm incomes are generally lower than those in other occupations. Farm prices have been increasing, but not nearly so rapidly as the cost of production. I know that a Governor with interests besides his next office can do something to help agriculture." O'Herron said that his many years of business experience will enable himm to help farmers in the areas of distribution and marketing. "The ma jor key to agriculture is production and I can't tell farmers anything about that," he said. "But I distribution facilities and this will mean more money for our farmers." He said the state must have adequate roads to move products east-west across the state and he said that he will encourage the further development and full utilization of the State Port Facilities at Morehead City and Wilmington. . O'Herron said he is concerned over land use planning. "We already have too many regulations coming out of Washington and Raleigh," he said. "I believe that" the individual land owner should.have some say in determining the use of his land and the farmer should not be penalized just because he is a farmer."
