INVESTIGATES WRECK, FINDS ONECAR IS HIS Sheriff Wright Meets With Surprise Upon Reaching Scene. C al 1 e d to investigate a wreck on the highway just north of Broad river bridge Sunday night, Sheriff J. G. Wright was considerably surprised when he found one of two cars involved in a collision was his own. The car, driven by one of Hit; sheriff's sons, had run into the rear of a parked automobile reported to have belonged to Dr. V. H. Roberts, of Blacksburg. No one received personal injuries but both automobiles were damaged. .- FURMAN LIPSCOMB IS BADLY HURT IN WRECK High School Hoy Thrown from Car to l'avoment in Collision. Furman Lipscomb, son of Claude V. Lipscomb, Sr., local market and groceryman, was severely injured Sunday morning when a Ford strip-down automobile collided with a Ford truck at the intersection of Mill and North Granard streets, at the Palmetto Service Station corner. He was thrown from the strip-down, and struck the pavement with his forehead. He was taken to the City Hospital, where yesterday he was reported to have partly regained consciousness. No operation had been performed, physicians waiting for improvement in his condition. C. V. Lipscomb, Jr., and John Campfield, colored, who were on the strip-down, escaped serious injury as did Earl Humphries, reported to have been driver of the truck. The Lipscomb boys were traveling west on Mill street while the truck was going south on Granard when tho collision occurred. i The injured boy, who is in the ninth grade at the high school, was rushed to the hospital by Ralph Sarratt, of Charlotte, former Gaffney man, who happened to drive up in his automobile , shortly after the accident.

As a farewell party, the sixth grade surprised the seventh grade with a weiner roast and marsh-mallow roast. Picnic and socials were the form of entertainment throughout the other grades. Dionnes Ask Permit To Adopt Own Babies Callander, Ont, May 10. Mr. ad Mrs. Oliva Dionne, parents of the famous quintuplets, are so completely in accord with Welfare Minister David Croll's "adopt a baby" proclamation that yesterday they asked Croll for permission to adopt their own babies. The infants are wards of the crown. Croll, in proclaiming adopt-a-baby week, said there were "1,000 orphan babies in the province who should have benefit of parental love and training." . The Dionnes have bitterly opposed the provincial decree which made their babies wards of the crown SUPPLY BILL FOR COUNTY UNCERTAIN MEASUKE STILL HELD IN SENATE. Saint-Amand Denounces Par-ris for Tactics Designed to Force Acceptance of His Rill Doubt still clouds the nrobable passage of the Cherokee county supply bill for 1935, it was stated here yesterday by Representative C. E. Saint-Amand. Mr. Saint-Amand said the bill, passed by the house to the senate March 7, was given its second reading with amendments by Senator J. D. I'arris in the senate May H exactly two months and one day after being sent to the senate. It has yet to pass third reading in the senate, after which it would go back to the house fiv consideration of the senate amendments. Apparently, Mr. Saint-Amand said, it is Senator I'arris' intention to keep the bill until the last, or about the last, day of the session, when it will be too bite for the house members, Mr. Saint-Amand and Representative George McKown, to make any changes. If such a course is followed, the house members would be forced to "swallow" the senator's bill, regardless of their own inclinations, or else let the measure die and leave the county without a supply bill. Under rules of the General Assembly, when the house and senate can not agree it is customary to send the disputed measure to a free conference. In the case of a local measure, such as a supply bill, Mr. Saint-Amand said, the free conferees would b, three members of the senate ant) three members of the house, including the senator and members of the house delegation. Senator Parris, Mr. Saint-Amand said, must be afraid to trust his county supply bill to a free conference. The representative said no other inference can be drawn, as the senator seems to be determined to prevent the Cherokee county bill from being sent to conference. The chief disagreement between Senator Parris and the two house members is said to hi over providing a tax levy to take care of an increase of $11,000 in the expenditures i f the county road department last year. Mr. Saint-Amand said tha senator has added an amendment to levy an extra tax of one anil one-half mills, or so much oc thi amount as necessary, to take care of the overexpenditure. Mr. Saint-Amand and Mr. McKown both oppose this levy on the ground that no one had ,i right to authorize the excess expenditure, and without proper authorization county officials had no right to pay out the money. Tha representatives point out that the supply bill last year provided the legislate delegation might make changes 'n the appropriations within the limits of the bill but specifically prohibited any increase in the total. Any expectation that last year's supply bill will hold good this year in case a new bill is not enacted is erroneous, Mr. Sair.t Amand asserted. Such a provision written into the slate appropriation bill was removed by the free conference, he said. Asked what he and Mr. McKown will do if Senator Parris holds the county supply bill in the senate until the last day of the session and then returns it to the house, Mr. Saint-Amand said : "I don't know." The representatives did not mince words in denouncing Senator Parris for his apparent attempt to force the house delegation to accept his bill without, any chance to make amendments or have the measure sent to free conference. "If a senator can do this way, there is absolutely no use in sending members of the house to Columbia at all," Mr. Saint-Amand said.

President Goes on Fishing Trip While Forces Rally for Attempt to Defeat Veto. Washington, "day 11. A cry from Senator Borah (Republican) of Idaho, for "cheap and abundant money" today set off a weekend barrage of oratory and argument by which friends of the Patman currency-bonus bill hope to force it through the Senate over a presidential veto. l'orii4i stepped into the controversy as Huey Long and Father Charles E. Coughlin of DetroiJ took the microphone to rally public support for the bill which would pay the veterans with newly-issued currency. Both Sides Gain. Each side gained a vote today, but the net result was to make the chance for the bill to pass over a veto even slimmer it takes two votes for to every one against, to set aside a presidential veto. With the battle growing more spirited, President Roosevelt got away from it all by taking a week-end fishing trip. He was accompanied, however, by House and Senate leaders who were expected to consult with him on the drafting of a veto message. More Telegrams. Even with the President away, telegrams continued to deluge the White House urging the chief executive to sign the bill. Telegraph companies estimated they were arriving at the rate of about 250 an hour. A quick denouement was promised by leaders of the fight for the bill. They announced they would probably release the measure from the Senate Tuesday and let it go to the White House for the President's expected veto. Encouraged. Tatman leaders were encouraged by the statements of Jesse Jones, RFC head, and Marriner Eccles, governor of the Federal reserve board, discounting objections to the inflationary bonus bill. They predicted the statements might swing Senate votes needed to override the veto. Administration leaders were confident that the campaign waged by the Patmanites during the last three days had not changed the line-up in the Senate which they counted upon to sustain tne President's veto. Straw Vote. In fact they claimed a gain of one vote from Senator O'Mahoney (Democrat) of Wyoming, who was not recorded when the bill passed the Senate Tuesday, 55 to j points in the Mississippi Valley 33. With Senator Tydings (Demo-j were plying up and down tne crat) of Maryland, who was river; steamboats and river puck-paired against the bill, that ! ets, sidewheelers and back-made a total of 35 to sustain a j wheelers, were preparing for their veto, with only 33 needed. . perennial trips up the Mississippi To balance this, the cash bonus . and tributaries near to New Or-forces claimed a gain of a vote; by the appointment of Dennis Chavez, a Democrat, to the vacancy in the Senate caused by the death of Senator Cutting of New Mexico. They said Chavez would be on hand in time to vote. Borah's statement was his first on the Patman bill. He emphasized that his interest was chiefly in the currency provisions of that measure. Citing England's experience in paying off indebtedness with new currency, Borah said: "I think we can stand with great advantage a limited policy of 'cheap and abundant money' in view of the fact that we al ready have an over abundant amount of interest bearing bonds." Borah said the only issue before the Senate in consideration of the three bonus bills was "whether we would issue treasury notes of the government, backed, as Governor Eccles says, in the same way as the bonds would be." In his speech, Long contended the bonus was not a "bonus at all but the adjusted service wages and very poor wages, at that which the government al lowed to the soldiers for the days that they served in the world war."

NEA Members Find New Orleans Is Unusually Interesting City New Orleans, La., May 11. Drop a chip of wood in the Mississippi River or in any of its tiibutaries in any of 32 states of the Union, and, it eventually will reach New Orleans where the Father of Waters just before he reaches the Gulf of Mexico is 3-4 of a mile wide and 180 feet deep, discharging about 5,000,-000 cubic feet of water every second. Some of the characteristics that make New Orleans "America's Most Interesting City" and different from all other cities are to be found in the city's great port. These characteristics were noted by the nation's editors, in convention here, on a harbor trip given to them by Streckfus Steamers, Inc., on the palatial river boat "President." This boat cost a million and is the finest on the river. Pulling away from the wharves at the foot of Canal Street, the editors saw ferries transferring passengers and vehicles between New Orleans and the west bank of the river. They saw the coffee wharf where about 3,000,000 bags of the green bean are han j t1(,(1 t,ach yQlH. from Brazil an,i South Alne,.jca countries. Saw ;thc banana wharves with large automatic conveyers unloading the iruit at the rate of 5,000 bunches an hour. Meanwhile, large ocean-going ships were loading or unloading their cargoes, or leaving or entering the port; towboats with barges of tonnage destined to FABRIC AT GAST0N1A Salmon Says Loray Mills Will Consume Hundred Dales a Day. In connection with the purchasing of the huge Loray Mill at Gas-tonia, by the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, M. B. Salmon, manager of the Cherokee Service Station, local Firestone dealer in this city, has issued the following statement. "The Firestone Tire and Rubber Company has purchased the Loray Mills of Gastonia, N. C, the second largest cotton mill in the world. The mill now has 110,000 spindles and Firestone will add more which will make it the largest cord fabric mill in the world, with a payroll of more than seven million dollars annually. There are over. six hun dred houses in the village and two hundred acres of land. The houses will be reconditioned and the grounds beautified. The entire mill will be completely overhauled and $250,000 will be spent on the improvement of the grounds and village. This will put hundreds of people back to work and after the mr thai1 100 bales of cotton per day. "As long as Firestone tires are sold this mill will run to supply the cotton cord fabric that goes into the tires. The purchase of this plant by Firestone will be a big help to the mill man, the farmer and the business man in this section. Germany Reports Fewer Unemployed Berlin, May 10. Unemployment in Germany during April declined 108,000 to 2,234,000. The figure was 30,000 below the previous low of October, 1931, despite 53,000 unemployed in the Saar. included for the lirsi I time. t leans; all forms of watercraft, including the humble skiff of the trot-line fisherman were in evidence. Passing seemingly endless miles of covered steel transit sheds, the "President" took the editors past the Public Cotton Warehouse, the country's largest with shipside delivery; the Public Grain Elevator which has a storage capacity of 2,622,000 bushels; the Public Coal and Bulk Commodity Handling Plant where all transferring is done by belt conveyers, and the Vegetable Oil Plants where oils are handled direct from ship's tanks to tann cars. Up the river the editors went to the huge bridge now under construction over it at a cost of $13,000,000. This bridge, to serve both railroad and vehicular traffic, will be higher from the base of its pilings to the top of its tower than the tallest of New Orleans buildings. Farther up, the editors saw the Bonnet Carre Spillway which the Federal Government has built to insure New Orleans against floods. This spillway can take more water out of the Mississippi River at flood stage than passes over Niagara Falls. Down the river the wharves and levees are dotted with steel transit sheds, warehouses and industries. Noteworthy among the lower facilities is the Inner Harbor Canal which connects the river with Lake Pontchartrain, an arm of the Gulf of Mexico. This five and one-half mile long, thirty-foot deep canal cost $19,-500,000 to build. ' River and harbor improvements at the Port of New Orleans, a state agency, are de clared to be worth $200,000,000. HIGH SCHOOL NETMEN DEFEAT CONCORD, N. C.

Sending of Two Measures to Conference Forces Solons to Heturn to Capital this Week. Columbia, May 11. Prospects of the longest legislative session in state history practically materialized today when the legislature, with major school and workmen's compensation bills' hanging fire, rccesned over the week-end. Failing in a ptrenuous effort to end the term by midnight, the House voted to resume its deliberations Monday night and the Senate Tuesday night. Two Free Conferences. Joint action on their part sent the general education bill, rated as the most important pending measure of the session, into free conference along with a bill to provide a rental textbook system. The Senate set a much-revised workmen's compensation bill as a special order for consideration early next week after its arlhpr- ents charged that debate on it, running into mid-afternoon, had become a "filibuster" to prevent it from reaching a preferred position. Three Bills Enacted. Bills to require the inoculation against rabies of all dogs allowed to run free after July 1 and to authorize the University of South Carolina and The Citadel to borrow from the PWA for self-liquidating building programs were enacted during the day. An Oconee county road bill was amended in the Senate by Senator Hughs of Oconee to provide that any county in the state might enter reimbursement agreements for the state highway department to build its roads or bridges immediately. The measure was approved over protests that it would "ruin the state's credit." .May Break Record. The duration of the session apparently depended upon the speed with which the two free conference committees redraft the education and textbook bills and whether Gov. Olin D. Johnston approves a licensing liquor act. Already within four days of the 1933 record of 128 calendar days, the session would exceed that of two years ago in length by midnight Wednesday. It was freely predicted that it would last "through Saturday." Liquor Bill. The governor has until midnight Tuesday to sign or veto the proposed new liquor law. If he does not act by that time, it would become law without his signature. Senate refusal to concur in House amendments to the education and textbook bills started them into free conference. The House held out for its liquor revenue allocation, giving the state 75 instead of 60 per cent, as a feature of the education bill to extend the school term one month and raise teachers' pay from $66 to $75. Loan Plan Modified. It also modified a Senate plan incorporated in the bill to authorize the borrowing of $600,000 to supplement liquor and beer revenue so as to approve $450,000 "if necessary." Several members assailed the entire scheme as threatening to "create a deficit." The House rejected a bill to increase the board of trustees of the State School for the Deaf and Blind in Spartanburg county to include a member from each congressional district and the Senate continued until 1936 a York delegation bill to have the road into the Kings Mountain National Memorial Battleground hard-surfaced. Both branches kept at work until well after midday when a special steering committee headed by Senator Brown of Barnwell announced that adjournment sine die by midnight was "physically impossible." Brown told the Senate that the governor had more than 100 measures, including the liquor act, on his desk and that the legislative machinery was unable to function fast enough to dispose of the volume of bill being crowded through.
