Title North Carolina: Red-Headed Stepchild
Date August 19, 1934
Description Editorial that expresses concern over a perception that North Carolina is demanding an unfair degree of federal intervention by strongly advocating for the Blue Ridge Parkway to be routed mostly in the state. Points out the massive funding that has been poured into neighboring states, and the relatively high per-capita federal taxes payed by North Carolinians. Argues that the Blue Ridge Parkway would have a positive impact on many people in the region that are suffering from the depression.
