LEGISLATIVE MESSAGE 

OF 

THE HONORABLE DAN K. MOORE 

GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Raleigh, North Carolina 

February 4, 1965 

INTRODUCTION 

"Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the General Assembly of North 
Carolina: 

We are convened here today at a moment in the history of our state when 
the burden of our responsibilities as elected officials is surpassed only by 
our opportunities for achievement in the public interest. At this moment, 
North Carolina stands on the threshold of greatness. The impetus to move 
into this period of promise must come from you and me working together 
with all the people of North Carolina. 

Each of you is in a position of high public trust. I know and respect 
the qualities of character and performance that have led to your election 
and reelection to these positions of service. Having served in this great 
legislative body, I appreciate the complexity of the many important tasks 
that will confront you. 

Yesterday each of you swore to serve our state faithfully and to the 
best of your ability. I know each of you is dedicated to carrying out that 
oath of office. You can make this one of the greatest General Assemblies, 
and together we can do much good for North Carolina and our fellow 
citizens. As a lifelong Democrat, I am proud of the heritage of good gov- 
ernment which the Democratic Party has made possible through Legislatures 
of the past sixty years. 

I look forward to working closely with each of you in a constructive, co- 
operative effort to meet our mutual responsibilities. Together we must 
grasp the opportunities which are here for North Carolina. With the 
public interest ever foremost, you can count on my complete and untiring 
cooperation. 

During the last year, I have traveled the length and breadth of our 
state — visited in each of your counties, each of your districts. I have 
talked at length with our people and have listened to what they have said. 
My inaugural address reflected the spirit of our people. 

My program is designed to reflect, perpetuate and strengthen that 
spirit. It is my firm belief that this program will move North Carolina 
closer to the goal of a more abundant life for every citizen. This program 
will help us to realize the opportunities for achievement that are ours 
today as never before in history. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 23 

PUBLIC EDUCATION 

If North Carolina stands on the threshold of an era of unprecedented 
prosperity, as we have every reason to believe it does, then the path we 
must follow to achieve that goal is education. It is the first responsibility 
of state government and it must be given attention commensurate with that 
responsibility by this General Assembly. 

Much progress has been made in education in recent years. Even now 
plans are being made across the state to utilize fully the $100 million 
school bond issue for capital improvements which the General Assembly 
authorized, which I advocated and the people approved. But, North Caro- 
lina is still behind in great many areas of education, and now we must 
take specific steps to catch up. 

I recommend that this General Assembly: 

First, reduce class size by three in grades one through three, and by 
one in grades four through twelve. 

Second, provide a salary increase of 5 per cent for public school in- 
structional personnel for the first year of the biennium and 5 per cent 
for the second. 

Third, provide additional guidance counsel and remedial teachers. 

Fourth, restore the continuing contract for our teachers. 

Fifth, extend the term of employment for public school principals. 

Sixth, relieve students and parents of the burden of paying necessary 
school and book fees and initiate a study to find ways of eliminating un- 
necessary fees, and 

Seventh, strengthen our school lunch program to insure that hunger is 
banished forever from the classrooms of North Carolina. 

North Carolina should spare no effort to reduce the drop-out problem. 
We must expand the vocational training program for both young people 
and adults. Special classes must be provided for the emotionally ill and 
the retarded and for the gifted. The first responsibility, however, is to 
the average student; and the second is to the teacher on whom the success 
of any educational program rests. 

We must appraise and reappraise the various experimental programs 
now being conducted in education. If in the judgment of our state educa- 
tion officials, these experiments show promise, they will be continued. If 
not, they should be discontinued and new avenues sought to meet the 
growing challenge of education. 

I strongly oppose any federal control in the North Carolina public 
school system. In these changing times, however, we recognize that the 
federal government has involved itself in public education. There are now 
new laws and regulations which will change the way many of our schools 
are operated. As much as we dislike these changes, I remind you of 
our state's proud heritage as a peaceful and law-abiding people. The law 
must be obeyed. 



24 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

HIGHER EDUCATION 

North Carolina must act now to insure that its every son and daughter 
with a capacity for college work is given the incentive and the opportunity 
to attend a college of exceptional quality. This is a goal of my administra- 
tion. 

Our state-supported institutions of higher learning must be expanded 
physically and academically. I am deeply concerned about the capital im- 
provement needs of our state colleges and The University. This is a matter 
which deserves your careful consideration, and I expect to speak directly 
to this problem in my budget message to follow at a later date. 

Our facilities for vocational training, our Industrial Education Centers 
and our Technical Institutes must continue to expand. Full support must be 
given to the Community College. We must be concerned with and we must 
give every possible encouragement to the private and church-related institu- 
tions that have contributed so much to the well-being of North Carolina. 

The University of North Carolina is today and will remain the single 
most important factor in higher education in our state. I am convinced 
of the value of the One University concept, and I will vigorously oppose 
any effort to deprive this state of the positive benefits of consolidation. We 
must strengthen rather than weaken the total University at Greensboro, 
at Raleigh, and at Chapel Hill. • In addition, I strongly recommend that 
the fourth campus of the University be located at Charlotte as proposed by 
the University Trustees and approved by the State Board of Higher Educa- 
tion. 

I do not believe that the Trustees of the University are properly appor- 
tioned at this time. I recommend that the General Assembly appoint a 
commission to study the role of the Trustees in our University System, the 
method of their selection and the representation of the various campuses 
on the Board of Trustees. In view of the campus which I recommend be 
added at Charlotte, this is the logical time to re-examine and improve 
our system of trustees. Meanwhile, when you consider the selection of 
trustees at this session, every effort should be made to equalize representa- 
tion more fully. 

My position on the Speaker Ban Law is well known. As important as 
this law is and as important as the proposed name change for North Caro- 
lina State is, neither issue should not be allowed to weaken our Consolidated 
University. Both should be settled promptly. The welfare of the University 
should be your overriding concern in approaching these and related matters 
touching our University System. 

According to the State Board of Higher Education, there will be more 
qualified students applying for admission to institutions of higher learning 
this year than can be admitted. Some applicants must be turned away be- 
cause of inadequate facilities. A deepening of this crisis in higher education 
appears certain to develop in the years immediately ahead. This is a matter 
of great importance to the General Assembly and I ask that you give this 
problem your full consideration. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 25 

I am asking the State Board of Higher Education to give the General 
Assembly and me for our joint consideration its recommendations on the 
request from our institutions of higher learning for new facilities. In view 
of the overwhelming requests for capital improvements, there must be 
clear-cut priorities established which are based on goals denned by our 
State Board of Higher Education. 

HIGHWAY COMMISSION 

In the interest of economy, efficiency and integrity in the building of 
highways, I recommend to you a reorganization of the State Highway Com- 
mission. It is not necessary that I go into all of the changes involved. A 
bill incorporating the details of my proposal will be introduced into this 
General Assembly. 

Let me say, however, it will provide for a Chairman who also will have 
the title of Director of Highways, and who will give his full time to his 
duties. Under regulations previously adopted by the Commission, he will 
have the authority of the Commission when it is not in session. 

In my proposed reorganization, the Commission will be reduced to four- 
teen members. They will serve on a per diem basis and will fairly represent 
every section of the state, but will subscribe to the statewide concept of 
our highway system. 

There will be a State Highway Administrator responsible to the Com- 
mission who shall be a career official and have charge of the administrative 
operations of the Commission. 

There also will be a Director of Secondary Roads, who representing the 
Commission, will act in close cooperation with boards of county commis- 
sioners throughout the state. 

The bill will provide penalties and forfeiture of public office if any 
commissioner or employee of the Commission shall use his official position 
for his own private interest. There will be an additional provision to 
make it unlawful for anyone dealing with the Highway Commission to 
promise or offer anything of value to any member of the Highway Com- 
mission or its employees for the purpose of influencing the action of such 
commissioner or employee. 

The purpose of this reorganization will be to pinpoint clearly responsi- 
bility for the handling of highway funds, as well as every phase of highway 
activity, and as far as possible, to remove the construction of highways 
from the blight of self-interest or political favoritism. In view of the large 
sums that will be spent during the next four years for highways, it is 
essential, in my opinion, that this reorganization be adopted. It combines 
some of the best phases of all the reorganizations of the past and will 
help to guarantee that the people will get a dollar's worth for roads for 
every dollar spent. 

If this General Assembly agrees with me and adopts this plan for re- 
organization, I pledge to you and to the people that I will appoint to this 
Commission men of outstanding experience, ability and integrity, who, I 
believe, will be true to their trust. North Carolina deserves and must have 
such leadership on its Highway Commission. 



26 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

ROAD BONDS 

To meet North Carolina's ever expanding road construction needs, I 
recommend that you authorize a $300 million road bond issue, subject to a 
vote of the people, to be spent over a five-year period. Of this $300 million, 
I recommend that $150 million be spent on the primary system, that $75 
million be used for highways within our municipalities, and that $75 million 
be used for secondary roads. Where it would appear to be more economical, 
I urge that these roads be constructed by free enterprise upon the basis of 
competitive bids. 

I recommend that this bond issue be financed within the present tax 
structure utilizing the one cent per gallon tax which has financed the 
secondary road bond issue of 1949. This tax can adequately provide for 
the $300 million bond issue after the 1949 bond issue is provided for in 
1966. Until this is accomplished, I recommend that the debt service for 
the new bonds be derived from current revenues of the Highway Fund. 

The legislation to be introduced will spell out as nearly as possible how 
these funds will be spent in each county and each municipality of the 
state. If the General Assembly authorizes this bond issue, the referendum 
should be held promptly. We need to get under way on this program which 
will go far toward providing North Carolina with the modern highway 
system which we must have to serve our people and our expanding economy. 

FISCAL POLICY 

We must keep our state fiscally sound. I subscribe to the doctrine of 
the balanced budget. I endorse the record of our state extending over many 
decades for economy, efficiency and integrity in fiscal affairs. Our manage- 
ment of the public debt of the state has earned for us an AAA rating — 
the highest rating for state bonds. It will be a major objective of this 
administration to preserve our high credit standing by continuing the 
sound fiscal policies that have generally been characteristic of our state 
since the adoption of the Executive Budget Act in 1925. 

Adequate tax revenues are necessary if the state is to maintain present 
levels of service and meet the requiremnts of normally expanding services 
in the future. However, there is every indication that our growing economy 
will provide the necessary revenue to meet our state's needs. Therefore, in 
keeping with a promise made by me frequently during the past year, I 
oppose any increase in taxes. 

Taxes in North Carolina are already high enough, and if it should appear 
that revenues are coming in at levels in excess of budget needs, I would 
urge that the General Assembly give serious consideration: (1) to amending 
the state income tax law to increase the exemption allowed each dependent 
from the present $300 to $600; and (2) to providing exemptions for North 
Carolinians who are 65 and older that are comparable with the provisions 
of the federal income tax law. 

These measures will provide tax relief where it is most needed — among 
young couples with children and among our older people. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 27 

Since the relief here recommended is desirable, we will watch with 
interest the monthly reports of revenue collections made by the Revenue 
Department, which by April should forecast with reasonable certainty the 
size of the surplus as of June 30th of this year and the levels of revenue 
that may be expected in the next biennium. 

INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT 

Industrial development is an important key to providing more jobs, more 
job opportunities and a better way of life for all our people. Creation of 
new local industries, expansion of existing industries and the location in 
North Carolina of new out-of-state industries will be major goals of my 
administration. The direct result will be a higher per capita income for 
our people. 

Through positive active leadership the State Department of Conservation 
and Development must keep North Carolina in the forefront of modern 
industrial growth and development. As Governor, I shall give my full 
support and personal attention to every aspect of the state's program. I 
shall call on leaders of business, industry, commerce and the professions 
to lend their talents and know-how to increase our rate of development and 
improve the scope and quality of our search for productive industrial 
prospects. 

We must maintain the sound policy of offering new industry the same 
benefits and services now available to our existing industries which have 
contributed so much to our economic growth and prosperity. 

There is a definite need for a closer, more effective relationship between 
the commerce and industry division and all communities and counties in 
the state. I am giving careful study to ways and means of locating trained 
staff members of commerce and industry across the state to assist more 
directly in the economic development of each county. 

While I doubt any additional funds will be needed, if it develops later 
that they are, I will ask for your support to accomplish this grass-roots 
program. 

NATURAL RESOURCES 

Our natural resources are a sacred trust passed from one generation to 
the next as a foundation upon which to build a better state. We are 
fortunate in the abundance of our resources. We have done well in be- 
ginning to conserve and develop these gifts of nature. The job is not com- 
pleted, however, and our programs must be maintained or accelerated. 

In forestry, we have set the pace in the southeast but the job is far 
from finished. Our mineral resources must be more fully developed. Our 
park system is one of the finest in the country, but it has room for im- 
provement. Recreational needs deserve your full consideration. There is 
still work to be done to protect our Outer Banks and other coastal areas. 
Our soils and our wildlife must be conserved. Our water resources are 
becoming more and more important. We must maintain our efforts to 
insure adequate supplies of clean, usable water for the future. 



28 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

HEALTH AND WELFARE 

The health and the welfare of our people are major concerns of this 
administration. State Agencies with responsibilities in these fields are to 
be commended for their past work. One of our most urgent needs is for 
more trained personnel in all health and welfare agencies. 

There are the underprivileged young, the infirm, the handicapped and 
the elderly among us who cannot provide for their own physical needs. 
These people must be assisted by our Department of Public Welfare, and 
wherever possible, they must be rehabilitated for their own good and for 
the good of North Carolina. 

All of us have heard there is misuse of public welfare programs. These 
incidents are few in comparison with the good being done. But, we do 
have a responsibility to correct any misuse. Much of this can be accom- 
plished though careful administration, and I will work closely with welfare 
officials to bring this about. 

Protection of the public health is an essential service of state government 
working in cooperation with local governments. I recommend general sup- 
port for the program of the State Board of Health and other health-related 
agencies and institutions. These and other programs supported by the 
State Medical Society, and private medical centers throughout the state 
will receive my personal attention. 

The mentally ill must have our special consideration. Much has been 
done for these people in recent years, but we still have much to do. We must 
carry mental health treatment to the community level. I recommend that 
we provide the necessary facilities to meet the needs of all our mentally ill. 

Mental retardation is a problem of deep concern to everyone. Some men- 
tally retarded children below the age of six have been denied treatment 
and custodial care in state facilities. This policy should be changed to 
provide help for the children of parents who desire such assistance. 

Alcoholism is a disease which demands our immediate attention. Over 
50,000 of our fellow citizens are classified as alcoholics. Considerable re- 
search is being done in this area. I urge you to study this problem and to 
utlilize all available knowledge on the cause and prevention of this disease. 
I recommend the immediate establishment of two additional alcoholic re- 
habilitation centers — one in the eastern part of the state and the other 
in the western part. 

I also ask you to give special attention to the varied and complex health 
problem that confront our older people. They have given and are giving 
much of themselves to the building of this state, and we have the re- 
sponsibility and the privilege of working to solve their problems in the 
health field and elsewhere. 

CORRECTION AND REHABILITATION 

The administration of justice demands that punishment be given where 
deserved; however, rehabilitation must be the guiding principle of our 
prison, parole and probation agencies. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 29 

Our rehabilitation program must be strengthened and special attention 
must be given to the young offender, the alcoholic, and the mentally or 
emotionally disturbed person. Each inmate must be provided with more 
effective guidance. He must be given the incentive to be a more responsible 
and productive citizen. 

Proper guidance and incentive also must be given our boys and girls who 
have violated the law. Outstanding progress has been made in our cor- 
rection and training institutions. But nothing should be left undone to 
give these youngsters the opportunity to learn, to develop, and to re-enter 
society as responsible young men and women. 

An important part of our penal program is the supervision of those on 
parole and probation. North Carolina has been a pioneer and leader in 
these fields. The state has reclaimed a great number of lives and gained 
considerable economic benefit because of these programs. They deserve our 
continued support. 

COURT IMPROVEMENT 

Implementation of the recent changes in the Judicial Article of the 
Constitution is important to the proper administration of justice. The 1963 
General Assembly, as you know, established the Courts Commission to 
draft the necesary implementing legislation. 

As a former judge and as a citizen, I have an abiding interest in the 
improvement of our system of courts. Therefore, I endorse in general the 
recommendations of the Courts Commission, especially those to create a 
uniform system of lower courts and uniform court costs. 

LAW AND ORDER 

As I stated in my inaugural message, no one is above or beyond the 
law. As Governor, I shall not tolerate violence or lawlessness anywhere in 
North Carolina. We shall insist that the law be impartially enforced without 
fear or favor. 

HUMAN RELATIONS 

Continued progress in human relations is essential. Substantial progress 
has been made in recent years. Some feel we have moved too fast; others, 
that we have moved too slowly. 

I believe and sincerely hope that we in North Carolina have come to a 
time of calm and sensible reappraisal in this area. North Carolinians gen- 
erally have become more rational and more tolerant of the views of others 
and they have a better understanding of the reasons for these views. 

However, at a time of reappraisal is not a time for complacency. The 
problems have not passed. They will require our constant and sincere 
attention in the days ahead. I am initiating a study of the role state govern- 
ment is playing in this area through such agencies as the Good Neighbor 
Council. If these programs are meeting the need, they should be continued. 
If not, we will find new programs. 



30 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

I do not foresee the necessity for specific legislation in the area of human 
relations, but I do welcome any advice and suggestions you may have. 
Your interest and mine are identical — protecting the rights of all North 
Carolinians and insuring that every citizen has an opportunity to develop 
his talents and use these talents to help us build a better North Carolina. 

AGRICULTURE 

Agriculture has time-honored place in the life and the economy of 
North Carolina. If our state is to move across this threshold of greatness 
where we now stand, our agriculture and related industry will have to 
provide much of the impetus. For this reason, my administration is going 
to give vigorous attention to all of the opportunities, as well as the problems, 
of agriculture. 

Tobacco, our major crop, is being threatened as never before, both by 
over production and by a health scare. We are going to spare no effort to 
resolve the difficulties that confront our 165,000 tobacco farm families, and 
in turn, that large segment of our economy geared to tobacco. And, I in- 
clude here the 40,000 North Carolinians who earn their livelihood from the 
manufacture of tobacco products. 

The over production of tobacco has forced drastic cuts in acreage allot- 
ments. The emphasis on ever-increasing production per acre has seriously 
affected the quality and usability of our tobacco. The existing federal 
acreage allotment program is apparently inadequate as a means of con- 
trolling production and Congress is now considering changes in it. 

I recommend this General Asembly take immediate action to consider 
this problem of over production and changes in the acreage allotment pro- 
gram being recommended by our tobacco leadership. After study, I urge 
you to make your views known. As Governor, I will work closely with our 
congressional delegation to secure necessary legislation. I need the advice 
and help of the General Assembly and the people in dealing with this 
problem. 

In view of the recent health scare, I recommend that you consider the 
advisability of further state research efforts in this area. 

I also urge you to support diversification of our agriculture with every 
means at your command. Animal agriculture has a great future in North 
Carolina and I hope you will promote it as diligently as we do our im- 
portant money crops. My administration will encourage the production, 
processing, packaging and marketing of a wider variety of farm products 
with special emphasis on food commodities. The present offers a golden 
opportunity for North Carolina to move more into the market for processed 
foods and we intend to make the most of this opportunity. 

In all our efforts to take advantage of agriculture opportunities, I intend 
to use the experience and programs of our State Department of Agriculture 
and North Carolina State and the various farm organizations. My co- 
operation with them will be coordinated through my Special Assistant for 
Farm Affairs, with the advice of my Agricultural Advisory Committee. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 31 

BANKING, TRADE AND COMMERCE 

Operating within the scope of present law, our banks are meeting their 
responsibility in the economic development of our state. They are able to 
earn reasonable profits within the framework of the existing laws. There- 
fore, I would oppose any effort to increase the legal interest rate in North 
Carolina. 

North Carolina must be alert to the fact that American business is highly 
mobile and has become more and more interstate in nature. At the present 
time there is no one body of law governing commercial transactions in this 
state. As a result, our businessmen, their customers and suppliers in this 
and other states are often handicapped by the lack of uniformity of com- 
merical law between North Carolina and other jurisdictions. In view of 
this need, I request that you give careful consideration to enactment of 
the Uniform Commerical Code. 

UTILITIES 

North Carolina is very fortunate in the quality of its utilities and in 
the dedication to public responsibility so frequently evidenced by the people 
who control those utilities. I do not think we could find a better example 
of this dedication than the unselfish manner in which the private power 
companies and electric cooperatives recently resolved their differences. 

This settlement was, of course, in the best interest of the parties con- 
cerned, but much more significantly, it was in the interest of this state 
and its future. All who had a part in these deliberations are to be com- 
mended. It is my sincere hope that their recommendations will meet the 
approval of the General Assembly as well as the muncipalities and others 
who have an interest. 

All of our utilities should be encouraged to expand their facilities wher- 
ever it is necessary to provide more electric power, more gas, more tele- 
phones, and better transportation services for our dynamic, growing state. 
Our Utilities Commission should be constituted and staffed so as to protect 
fully the public interest and all consumers. 

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY 

The fields of science, research and technology are increasingly important 
to North Carolina. We have an advantage in these fields. However, we 
must act now to utilize this advantage to the fullest. My administration 
accepts the responsibility of providing the leadership that will coordinate 
established industrial research with related programs in the Research 
Triangle and in our universities. 

STATE PORTS 

The State Ports at Wilmington and Morehead City are of increasing 
importance to all of North Carolina. This is particularly true in view of 
prospects for the developing phosphate industry in North Carolina. They 
provide an outlet to world markets for our farmers, manufacturers, pro- 
cessors and producers of raw materials. They put us very much in the 
2 



32 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

import and export business. I urge the General Assembly to take the 
necessary action to develop further these facilities so they may be utilized 
more fully and effectively. 

EMPLOYMENT AND JOB OPPORTUNITY 

The primary purpose of our efforts in industrial development and agri- 
culture, in business development and research and other economic activity 
is to raise our per capita income. We want everyone to have a chance to 
make his own way in a competitive, changing society. We want all North 
Carolinians to enjoy a full, abundant life. 

Our state has been blessed with stable and productive labor — manage- 
ment relations. During my administration, I will work to maintain this 
record. I believe every man and woman should be free to join or not join 
a union. Unions have contributed substantially through the years to im- 
proving the lot of the working man. I do feel, however, that unions have 
an obligation to develop programs that will attract members voluntarily. 
Our right-to-work laws should be retained. 

MINIMUM WAGE 

I favor fair and adequate wages for all North Carolinians. I would 
favor raising the minimum wage to one dollar per hour provided present 
exemptions are maintained and provided that marginal jobs and businesses 
would not be eliminated. 

I recommend you make a thorough study of the situation before any 
change is proposed in our minimum wage law. 

FEDERAL-STATE PROGRAMS 

It is encouraging that the new federal-state programs such as the Ap- 
palachia Bill and the Economic Opportunity Act place strong emphasis on 
the role and responsibility of state government. 

We must be prepared to use these federal programs wisely for the benefit 
of our people. This will require careful planning, competent staff and the 
full cooperation of local government and others concerned. As the state 
needs are clarified in the coming months, I shall ask your consideration 
and support for additional state funds or state programs if they are re- 
quired to implement new federal legislation. 

STATE EMPLOYEES 

An important factor in the operation of economical and efficient state 
government is qualified, experienced, dedicated personnel. North Carolina 
has been and is today fortunate in having such employees. To insure this 
quality of personnel, it is necessary to provide more adequate compensation 
for our employees. 

In the interest of holding and attracting well qualified personnel and 
in recognition of the rise in the cost of living and the quality of past serv- 
ices, I recommend a ten per cent pay increase for all state employees sub- 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 33 

ject to the Personnel Act. I further recommend that a study be made of 
per diem allowances, travel compensation, and longevity pay provisions 
to ascertain if they are adequate. 

I am confident that state employees will cooperate in seeking to improve 
efficiency in state government. Each employee must set a personal goal 
of giving a day's work for a day's pay. Every department and agency 
can seek ways of improving its own performance. 

As one example, I recommend the General Assembly closely review the 
new state positions created in recent years and those being requested this 
year. I am told there are now two thousand job vacancies in state govern- 
ment and that some of these have been unfilled for some time. I urge 
your careful consideration of this matter and the elimination of any of 
these positions that are unnecessary. 

HIGHWAY SAFETY 

North Carolina has made tremendous progress in many areas. This has 
not been true in the area of highway safety, however. We have failed to 
curb the deaths, injuries and property damage on our highways. 

In 1964, highway accidents killed 1,575 people in North Carolina. This 
was an increase of 194 persons over the year 1963. There were injured 
on our highways 50,000 people. There were 80,164 motor vehicle accidents. 
On our highways there was economic loss reported in the amount of 
$283,500,000. This amounts to one person being killed on our highways 
every five hours; one person being injured every eleven minutes; one acci- 
dent occurring every six minutes; and an economic loss to our state of 
$776,000 a day. 

These problems have outgrown any state agency. I propose to make 
highway safety a direct responsibility of the Governor's Office. The 1963 
General Assembly created the Governor's Coordinating Committee on High- 
way Safety." The purpose of this committee was to bring together all 
existing governmental agencies and others to discuss and find ways to 
make our highways safer. 

This committee has already met in my office and as a result of this 
conference I have asked the State Highway Commission to have its Traffic 
Engineering Department immediately make a thorough re-analysis of all 
our accident locations. This analysis will cover our entire 72,000 mile high- 
way system. There is already under way a study to determine the location 
and type of sub-standard and non-uniform traffic signal installations. 

I have directed the State Highway Patrol to redouble its efforts to enforce 
motor vehicle laws vigorously, fairly and impartially. The Highway Patrol 
also has been directed to concentrate its manpower and equipment on our 
public highways and roads. There will be a re-examination of administra- 
tive procedure which might be eliminated or revised to permit more active 
patrolling of the highways. 

I urge all of our courts to cooperate in the program to halt death, 
injury and destruction of property on our public highways and roads. I 
now ask the judges and prosecuting attorneys of the various courts to try 



34 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

to plan their dockets to allow troopers to spend as much time as possible 
on the highways. 

In the near future I want to come back before this General Assembly 
to make specific recommendations on legislative changes or new laws which 
we feel necessary to curb highway bloodshed. Today, however, I have one 
recommendation: I recommend that you enact a periodic automobile inspec- 
tion law. Studies indicate that a reasonable motor vehicle inspection statute 
can bring an immediate reduction in the number of motor vehicle accidents. 

If I were to call upon any person to lend me his total time and energy 
to prevent the death of another human being, I believe that he would 
immediately volunteer his time and ability. If I were to ask any member 
of this General Assembly to join with me to save one life, I believe you 
would do so gladly. What I am really asking this General Assembly to 
do is join with me in saving thousands of lives. 

I now call upon the members of this General Assembly, every state em- 
ployee, every person connected with the courts of this state and most of 
all, every person in North Carolina, to lend me their aid and their assistance 
to stop this needless and awful toll. When the people of this state demand 
that we form a climate for highway safety, we will succeed in stopping 
death and destruction on our highways. 

If you will go into the halls of any hospital in this state, you will find 
beds filled with human beings who are maimed and broken for life because 
of traffic accidents. And, when we consider the toll of the dead which 
continues even as I speak to you, I think you will agree that insofar as 
this problem is concerned, the hour is indeed late. 

The State of North Carolina has more activities, more programs, and 
more services than I can possibly mention or discuss in this message. 
Any omission or failure to mention one of these services does not mean 
that I think any less of its importance or its assigned responsibility in 
state government. In this message I have attempted to outline those major 
areas in which my administration will attempt to make primary contribu- 
tions during the next four years. I also shall have additional messages 
which I may submit for your consideration during this session. 

It is our joint responsibility to carry forward programs and services 
which are of lasting value to the people of North Carolina, to nurture them 
and see that they obtain the financial support which they must have. There 
are always hard appraisals to be made in many basic areas of state service. 
It is our inescapable responsibility to ask questions, to re-examine existing 
programs and to determine what value they may have for the next two 
years, and in the years beyond. To carry out my job as Governor, I shall 
seek the best advice I can find, always placing the public interest foremost 
among all considerations. 

Again I say, North Carolina stands at this moment on the threshold of 
greatness, looking toward an era of unprecedented prosperity and growth. 
To meet the challenge of 1965 and the years ahead, each of us must con- 
tribute the best we have to offer. With your understanding, your guidance 
and your support, we can realize this dream for a greater North Carolina. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 35 

It is also my hope that every man and woman in our state will share in 
this endeavor. We want them to feel that they can make a contribution, no 
matter how small, to the building of a better North Carolina. 

With the help of Divine Guidance, we shall build a great and good com- 
munity, representing the hopes, the dreams and the aspirations of all our 
people. Let us begin that task with confidence and faith in the great state 
we are privileged to serve." 

After the Governor's address, on motion of Senator Seay, the Joint 
Assembly dissolves, the Senate repairs to its Chambers, and the House 
resumes consideration of its business.

cided was taken by a call of the ayes and noes, any member may move to 
reconsider. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 65 

(b) A motion to reconsider shall be determined by a majority vote, ex- 
cept a motion to reconsider a motion tabling a motion to reconsider, which 
shall require a two-thirds vote. 

Rule 18. Motion to Postpone Indefinitely. A motion to postpone in- 
definitely is always in order except when a motion to adjourn or to lay 
on the table is before the House; however, after one motion to postpone 
indefinitely has been decided, another motion to postpone indefinitely shall 
not be allowed at the same stage of the bill or proposition. When a question 
has been postponed indefinitely, the same shall not be acted on again during 
the session, except upon a two-thirds vote. 

THE PREVIOUS QUESTION 

Rule 19. Previous Questions. The previous question may be called only 
by the member submitting the report on the bill or other matter under con- 
sideration, by the member introducing the bill or other matter under con- 
sideration, or by the member in charge of the measure, who shall be 
designated by the chairman of the committee reporting the same to the 
House at the time the bill or other matter under consideration is reported 
to the House or taken up for consideration. 

Rule 20. Form and Effect of Previous Question, (a) The previous 
question shall be as follows: "Shall the main question now be put?" When 
the call for the previous question has been decided in the affirmative by a 
majority vote of the House, the "main question" is on the passage of the 
bill, resolution or other matter under consideration, including all pending 
amendments. If amendments are pending, the question shall be taken 
upon such amendments in inverse order. 

(b) The call for the previous question shall preclude all motions, amend- 
ments and debate, except the motion to adjourn made prior to the deter- 
mination of the previous question. Should the motion to adjourn be made 
prior to the determination of the previous question the House will vote first 
on the motion to adjourn and then, if the motion to adjourn fails, the mem- 
bers will vote on the call for the previous question.

comments on the 1965-67 State Budget as proposed by Governor Terry 
Sanford and the Advisory Budget Commission. As you know, the General 
Statutes require the outgoing Governor to prepare and submit budget recom- 
mendations to the General Assembly, and, thus, you understand that this 
budget is not the work of my Administration. It is my duty to advise you 
on how I think the budget can and should meet the needs of our people for 
the next two years. 

Since I delivered my Legislative Message on February 4, I have made an 
intensive study of the entire budget. I have spent many hours with budget 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 207 

and fiscal officials. The time so spent, in my opinion, will considerably lessen 
your labors in arriving at a proper budget. 

In addition, I have considered many budget requests and proposals which 
are not included in this present budget. A great deal of my time has been 
devoted to listening and talking with legislators, and a wide range of the 
people representing public schools, higher education, health, welfare, eco- 
nomic development, highways, utilities, transportation, communication, and 
many other areas of state governmental service. I was impressed with the 
genuine concern and the sincere interest of these people who seek to promote 
many and varied programs and projects. I share most of their concerns 
and recognize the many unmet needs which were presented. 

We as elected officials are confronted with the task of constructing a 
balanced state budget which, in our judgment, will make the greatest con- 
tribution to our state for the next two years within available revenues. As 
you know, I campaigned vigorously for this office with the full understand- 
ing that I would not recommend any tax increases. Many of you did likewise 
in your campaigns for the General Assembly. Therefore, my recommenda- 
tions are made with the belief that there will be no new taxes enacted by 
this General Assembly. 

At the same time, in view of the very heavy demands upon all available 
tax resources, I must reluctantly conclude and recommend that you not 
make any tax reductions at this session. We will need every tax dollar 
available to meet the genuine needs for state governmental services during 
the next two years. 

I have been impressed with the vigorous and vocal support which the 
advocates of education, welfare, etc., give to their causes. We must 
remember that economic wealth must be created, through the efforts of 
our people, before it produces the tax revenues we need to pay for in- 
creased state spending and services. I hope that all advocates of more 
services will support with equal vigor all local, county and state efforts to 
develop new and expanded industries, more productive businesses, diversified 
agriculture and other enterprises. 

If you agree with me that taxes should not be increased, then it is 
clear that firm priorities must be followed in the construction of our 1965-67 
budget. We may not wish to choose between many good and worthy pro- 
grams. It is not easy to say that one program deserves more attention 
than another, and yet, that is exactly what we must do. The results of 
your deliberations in adopting the budget will not fully satisfy the require- 
ments of all state agencies and institutions, but it is your responsibility 
to determine how available funds can be most wisely spent at this time. I 
have every confidence in your ability to do the job. I shall help you in any 
way that I can. 

My message is an attempt to assist in your deliberations by giving you, 
upon the best advise available, my major program recommendations. I 
also shall give you the best available estimate of the amount of budgetary 
resources which I think will be available for you to appropriate in 1965-67. 



208 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

It is my hope that you will be able, through the maintenance of sound 
fiscal policies, to move forward towards the realization of our goals- All 
constructive legislation is a product of compromise, but the reaching of a 
consensus through give and take does not mean that we surrender our goals. 

Before I outline my specific recommendations, I would like to express 
appreciation to the General Assembly for its prompt and thorough con- 
sideration of legislation which will authorize a $300 million road bond issue, 
subject to the vote of the people, and which will enable my Administration 
to reorganize the State Highway Commission. May I also commend you 
for selecting Charlotte College as the next campus of the Consolidated 
University of North Carolina. I think this expansion will mean much for 
North Carolina in the years ahead. 

After careful consideration of the recommended budget and the estimated 
revenues which will be available for the next biennium, I recommend that 
you take these specific steps to meet the most pressing needs of the public- 
schools. 

As the first step, I recommend that class size be reduced by three students 
in grades one, two and three. Motivation for learning must be instilled 
in a child during his first school years, and this motivation and early train- 
ing can best be provided in smaller classes. Therefore, I recommend that 
an additional 1,472 new teachers be placed in our first three grades, at a 
cost of $16,101,065, which includes retirement, social security and sick 
leave. The "B" Budget recommendation would have reduced class size 
by one student in all eight elementary grades at a cost of $11,503,868. Thus, 
my recommendation would require only an additional $4,597,197 over the 
budget recommendations proposed. 

This reduction in classroom load by three in the first three grades will 
be a great benefit to our school children in their most formative years, en- 
abling our teachers to give more individual attention to the needs of each 
child. 

If revenues should increase beyond present estimates, I would recom- 
mend that the General Assembly seriously consider reducing the number of 
students per teacher by one for grades four through eight, as recommended 
in the present "B" Budget. This would provide 637 additional new teachers 
at a cost of $6,972,552, which includes retirement, social security and sick 
leave. 

As the second step, I recommend salary increases for public school instruc- 
tional personnel who are paid from the nine months' school fund, at the 
rate of 5 per cent, to be effective July 1, 1965, at a cost for the biennium 
of $24,823,455. I recommend an additional 5 per cent increase, to be effec- 
tive for the second year of the biennium, at an additional cost to the 
nine months' school fund of $12,499,930. The total cost of both these in- 
creases for the biennium, to be paid from the nine months' school fund, 
would require $37,323,385, including retirement and social security. The 
recommendations of the "B" Budget provide for salary increases of $15 
per month beginning the second year of the biennium at a cost of $6,738,380. 
Thus, the increases which I recommend would actually require an additional 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 209 

$30,585,005 over the budget recommendations for instructional salaries in 
the public schools. 

I also recommend comparable salary increases for teachers of vocational 
education. Funds to support these salary increases can be provided by 
redirecting non-state funds for vocational education, which are now included 
in the recommended "B" Budget. 

The third step which I recommend would provide for 85 additional reme- 
dial teachers. They would teach children suffering speech and hearing 
difficulties, those who suffer from crippling physical impairment, those who 
are visually handicapped, and those children who are hospitalized, or who 
are not physically able to attend public school. While their number is 
small, these children must not be neglected by our public schools and their 
needs are just as important as those of other children. I, therefore, recom- 
ment an appropriation of $930,394, which includes retirement, social security 
and sick leave, for the biennium to meet this need. 

There are presently 604 full-time and part-time guidance counselors em- 
ployed in our schools. They are paid from federal funds provided by the 
National Defense Education Act, from state funds, and from local supple- 
ments to these funds. Their work is of great value to all our children, 
and I urge that local school units be encouraged to use more of these skilled 
services. 

As you recall from my Legislative Message, my fourth recommendation 
involved the restoration of the continuing contract for our public school 
teachers. No additional funds are required to carry out this recommenda- 
tion, but I strongly recommend that these contracts be made available to 
our teachers. 

Our public school principals need to have an extended term of employ- 
ment so that they will serve and receive salary for a period of ten and a 
quarter to eleven months each school year, depending upon the size and 
type of the school. As my fifth step, I recommend the extension of the term 
of our public school principals. This would require an additional $633,910. 

To achieve my sixth step, I recommend that the state appropriate 
$3,381,416 for purchase of supplemental elementary school books, based 
upon $2 per elementary student, which will eliminate these book fees. The 
elimination of all school and book fees would require a total appropriation of 
at least $13,121,348, but I believe that the General Assembly should take this 
positive action on elementary school book fees at this time. This would be 
a clear indication of your intent to prohibit elementary supplementary school 
book fees, and to relieve students and parents of the burden of paying all 
school and book fees at the earliest possible time. 

My seventh, and final, recommended step in assistance to public education 
would be to remove hunger from the classroom. You cannot teach a hungry 
child; nourishment for the body is an absolute prerequisite for nourishment 
of the mind. We have tried a new experiment in the school lunch program 
which has already shown astonishing results. By adjusting the allocation 
of Federal funds for school lunches, 87 schools in economically depressed 
areas were given increased funds to provide lunch for needy children. With- 



210 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

in two months, marked improvement in attendance and participation at 
these schools was apparent. The number of lunches served increased 47 
per cent. School attendance improved 10 per cent. 

There are now 141 schools in North Carolina where economic conditions 
prevent sufficient local support and do not allow full participation in the 
present program. Less than 40 per cent of the children in these schools 
participate. Under Title I of the new aid to Elementary and Secondary 
Education bill now before Congress, sufficient federal funds may become 
available to meet the needs of these schools — plus additional assistance to 
all North Carolina children whose families earn less than $2,000 per year. 
As you know, the state has never given financial support to the school 
lunch program. However, if additional federal assistance does not mate- 
rialize in this session of Congress, I recommend that the General Assembly 
appropriate $808,732 to provide state support for school lunch programs 
in these schools having the greatest need. 

We should encourage those counties that are not currently taking ad- 
vantage of the surplus food program for needy families to participate so 
that the children and other members of the family can get three nutritious 
meals seven days a week. 

One major goal of my legislative program is a 10 per cent salary increase 
for all state employees under the Personnel Act. It takes qualified, expe- 
rienced and dedicated people to operate our state government. In my 
opinion, the best way to maintain the quality of personnel and to attract 
well qualified people in today's highly competitive manpower market is to 
use the "across the board" method. It gives a substantial increase to all 
employees, including the lowest paid and those career employees, many of 
them technically trained, that are the heart and core of our state govern- 
ment. The total cost of this raise, including social security and retirement, 
is estimated to be $36,124,046 with $12,131,764 coming from the highway 
fund; $4,511,634 coming from special funds, and $19,480,648 coming from 
the general fund. 

Since the State Personnel Act was adopted in 1949, the State of North 
Carolina has established, at considerable cost in money and time, a system 
of classified state positions with a standard salary scale commensurate to 
the duties and responsibilities of each job involved. To provide a fair and 
equitable salary increase for all state employees under this Personnel Act, 
an "across-the-board" percentage increase is the only fair and equitable 
method to raise and adjust salaries at the same time by legislative enact- 
ment. The need for an increase is just as urgent for the long-time career 
employee making $5,000 as it is for the new state employee who is beginning 
employment at $2,800. From the standpoint of the state as an employer, it 
is much harder to fill the middle and upper salary bracket job with a 
qualified person than it is the lower salary position where applicants are 
many and the turnover is more rapid. Often the state must attempt to 
recruit these "middle management" people from the ranks of private in- 
dustry where salaries and benefits are higher than those offered by state 
government. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 211 

Since 1957, state employees have received legislative salary increases of 
approximately 10.8 per cent as compared with an approximate 26 per cent 
legislative salary increase for public school teachers. I believe all of these 
increases were necessary, but, in fairness to the state employees, it is ob- 
vious that they have not received the same consideration as our school 
teachers. In the last General Assembly, state employees received a legisla- 
tive increase of $10 per month as compared with $15 per month for teachers 
for the first year. In addition, the teachers received another $10 per month 
for the second year while the state employees received nothing additional. 
You have already heard my recommendation for substantial increases for 
school instructional personnel for each year of the next biennium. 

In view of the continuing rise in the cost of living, and the vital need to 
retain competent, efficient state employees, I believe that a 10 per cent 
pay increase for all state employes under the State Personnel Act is clearly 
justified. 

The State Department of Conservation and Development must keep North 
Carolina in the forefront of modern industrial growth and development. 
As I mentioned earlier, we must create economic growth which provides 
more jobs, more tax revenues and a higher per capita income for our people. 
To provide a closer, more effective relationship between the Commerce and 
Industry Division and all our communities and counties, I suggested during 
my campaign that an industrial development representative from the De- 
partment of Conservation and Development be placed in each Congressional 
District. After considerable study, I now believe that these services can 
best be provided by five regional offices established by Conservation and 
Development across the state from which trained staff members in industrial 
development and community planning can be available to assist the economic 
growth of each community and county. I believe this extension of present 
services can be accomplished primarily with existing personnel. To establish 
these new offices on a regional basis would require an appropriation of 
$75,000 for the next biennium. 

In my Legislative Message, I recommended the immediate establishment 
of two additional alcoholic rehabilitation centers — one in the eastern part 
of the state and the other in the western part. I feel strongly the need for 
these centers, and I am hopeful that from the Capital Improvement Budget 
the General Assembly can find sufficient funds to provide them. 

The recommended budget calls for total expenditures of $2,071,524,286 
with $1,099,512,488 being appropriated from the general fund. In keeping 
with the trend of recent bienniums, this is the largest budget ever recom- 
mended for the consideration of the General Assembly. It reflects the normal 
growth of such vital governmental services as public schools, community 
colleges, higher education, public welfare, health, public safety and regula- 
tion, correction, highways, natural resources and recreation, agriculture, 
employment security, retirement and pensions, and debt service. This budget 
report also reflects the tremendous amount of hard work and careful con- 
sideration which obviously was given by the members of the Advisory 
Budget Commission, who represent the General Assembly, the State of 
North Carolina and the people of our state. 



212 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

Now that we are farther along in the fiscal year, with long-term trends 
becoming more and more apparent, we are able to project the amount of 
the state's budgetary resources with a much greater degree of accuracy 
then heretofore. From information coming in to us from the Commissioner 
of Revenue, the State Treasurer, the State Budget Officer, and the Director 
of Tax Research, we are now able to predict that these resources will exceed 
previous estimates used by the Advisory Budget Commission. 

The economy of the state continues on the rise and tax collections con- 
tinue to improve. In view of these healthy conditions, the Commissioner of 
Revenue's new estimates of general fund tax revenues are $480,381,366 for 
the present fiscal year; $516,505,218 for 1965-66; and $537,070,000 for 
1966-67. These projections amount to $43,005,780 more than the estimates 
used by the Advisory Budget Commission. 

Reversions represent appropriations which are not spent, and, therefore, 
are another source of funds to be considered for the next biennium. It is 
difficult to determine the amount of 1964-65 reversions until the accounts 
are closed at the end of the fiscal year. The State Budget Officer now esti- 
mates that General Fund revisions for fiscal 1964-65 will amount to 
$14,800,000, all of which will remain with the State Treasurer as a part of 
the beginning 1965-67 credit balance, and thus be available for reappropria- 
tion by the General Assembly. This revised estimate is $2,800,000 more 
than the estimate used by the Advisory Budget Commission. 

In addition to these General Fund Resources just described, I am advised 
by the State Treasurer that by adjusting the dates of the principal repay- 
ments on the $100,000,000 school bond issue and on the recommended 
$17,985,000 Legislative Bond issue, the debt service requirements for 1965-67 
may be reduced by $5,261,925. This additional amount also is available for 
appropriations by the General Assembly. 

In my Legislative Message I expressed my concern about the capital 
improvement needs of our state agencies, state colleges and the University. 
It is apparent that the $34,878,785 recommended for capital improvements 
during the next biennium is not adequate. During the past month, I 
have sought to find other resources which might be applied to this great 
need. I am pleased to report the availability of a non-recurring fund which 
can and should be used to supplement the capital improvement program for 
1965-67. 

It has been called to my attention that a substantial General Fund "wind- 
fall" has now resulted from the installation of the "pay as you go" with- 
holding individual state income taxes adopted by the General Assembly of 
1959. When this plan was adopted, the state had no experience upon which 
to base its rates for withholding. It has to guarantee that the amount of 
taxes withheld would be substantially the same as the amount of taxes due. 
To insure that money would always be available for tax refunds due in- 
dividuals who overpaid their taxes, the Revenue Department very properly 
set up a reserve fund for payment of these refunds. This withholding re- 
serve was not included, of course, in revenue estimates furnished by the 
Commissioner of Revenue. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 213 

I am now advised by all the officials directly concerned with the fiscal 
affairs of the State — the Treasurer, the Commissioner of Revenue, the State 
Budget Officer, and the Director of Tax Research — that our experience 
with the individual withholding tax has proved the accuracy of our with- 
holding rates and that the maintenance of this reserve fund is no longer 
required. The state can safely pay its tax refunds from current collections. 

We are in the fortunate position to realize a "windfall' of approximately 
$12,000,000 from this reserve fund at the end of this fiscal year. I have 
requested the Commissioner of Revenue to place these funds with the 
Treasurer to supplement the June 30, 1965, General Fund credit balance as 
a budgetary resource for 1965-67. I repeat, this is a nonrecurring item 
which should be used for capital improvement only. This will give us a 
total of $46,878,785 in the General Fund Capital Improvement Budget and 
this amount, with proper allocation, will meet the most pressing needs of 
our state. 

This appropriation for capital improvements would exceed by more that 
$11,400,000 the average biennial capital improvements appropriations for 
the last 10 years. The average during this period was $35,403,657. It 
should be remembered that during this ten-year period there were no capital 
appropriations in 1955-57 and only $8 million in 1961-63. 

As you know, the state now has a $100 million bond issue approved for 
public school construction, and our local administrative units are in the 
process of issuing approximately $200 million in bonds. In addition, this 
General Assembly has approved a $300 million road bond issue, subject to 
the vote of the people. In view of all these facts, and the $12 million in 
new funds now available, I do not recommend a capital improvements 
bond issue at this time. 

The recommended capital improvements do not include any college dor- 
mitories. They must be constructed on a self-liquidating basis. I share the 
reluctance of the State Board of Higher Education in approving this 
approach to dormitory construction, but do agree that this policy is neces- 
sary for the next two years as a stop-gap measure. 

If you appropriate the funds for my program, as recommended, plus 
everything recommended in the "A", "B" and "C" budgets, this would cost 
approximately $4,275,000 more than the total resources now available. 
Obviously, you and I know that we must adopt a balanced budget, and I 
will work with you toward that end. I believe the difference can be found 
in economies which should be effected in the recommended budgets, or in 
additional resources which may become available later in this session. I 
will work closely with you and your committees in finding a solution to 
this problem. 

As I stated earlier, all the budget requests are worthy of careful con- 
sideration and represent actual needs. In view of the limited tax resources 
which are available, the General Assembly must give objective appraisal to 
all these requests and determine the priorities which must be made at this 
time. 



214 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

As only one example, I would cite the Community College program as 
a major area of activity which deserves your careful appraisal. Satisfactory 
progress appears to have been made in this new Department of Community 
Colleges. However, the General Assembly must determine the rate of ac- 
celeration and development of this new field of state-financed education 
beyond the high school. It would be well to re-examine the original concept 
of the community college program with reference to geographical locations, 
needs to be met, and the arrangements for state support. We must not over- 
look that North Carolina has 44 private and church-related colleges which 
offer many educational resources that should not be duplicated by state- 
financed community colleges. 

I would like to emphasize that I believe in the value of a sound, care- 
fully planned, well-financed community college program. These institutions, 
along with existing private and church-related schools, can expand the 
reach of our educational system to many additional students and help take 
the pressure off our state-financed, four-year colleges and the University. 

I am certain that there are other major governmental areas in the pro- 
posed budget where economies can be effected. You, as representatives of 
the people, are free, of course, to make your own appraisal, and evaluation 
and assign your own priorities. 

As you begin your final study and consideration on the 1965-67 budget, 
let me pledge to you that my administration will make every effort to see 
that your final appropriations are spent in accordance with legislative in- 
tent. We shall strive mightily to achieve new economies at every level of 
government. We shall study the functions of agencies to eliminate duplica- 
tions and unnecessary programs. Good government is a habit in North 
Carolina — and we expect to continue and strengthen that habit. 

In my inaugural address, I visualized a great future for our state within 
the structure of what I call the great and good community. I renew here 
and now my faith in the vision that I saw at the hour of my inauguration. 
We will not reach all of our goals during this session of the General 
Assembly, not during the next, but we will move closer and closer toward 
the great goals that we have set. The broad outlines of the great and good 
community are beginning to come into sight. As the years pass we shall 
all contribute to making this a reality. But in the very nature of our society, 
our program will never be finished, for the greatest and the goodness 
of our people come in the struggle to achieve rather than in satisfaction 
with a fancied perfection. 

Thank you.

Assembly dissolve. The Senate repairs to its Chambers and the House

Whereas, forestry has become a one-and-a half billion dollar industry in

yielding over $95,000,000 each year in cash income to farmers; and 

Whereas, North Carolina is now first in the nation in the manufacture 
of wooden furniture, first in the nation in the production of hardwood ply- 
wood, and first in the South in lumber production; and 

Whereas, North Carolina forestry now employs approximately twenty 
percent of the State's entire labor force — upwards of 141,000 jobs — and is 
led only by tobacco and poultry in the State's farm product sales; and 

Whereas, these achievements are noted in the new book entitled North

STATEMENTS BY MEMBERS 

I wish to have my vote on the second reading of H. B. 94 recorded as 
"Noe" in the Journal. 

S/ Elton Edwards 

I wish to have my vote recorded as 'Noe" on H. B. 94. 

S/ C. W. Phillips 

I vote "Noe' on H. B. 94 since career state employees who are not mem- 
bers of state boards and commissions will not receive any increase in 
travel and expense allowance under the provisions of any bills introduced 
to this date. Furthermore, I think the increase to twenty dollars is too 
large. 

S/ W. R. Britt 

I wish to be recorded as voting "Noe" on H. B. 94. First of all, the bill 
has never been considered by the Appropriations Committee as I think it 
should have, and secondly, this bill is retroactive to include members of 
the 1965 General Assembly. I do not consider it proper that we should raise 
our own per diem and allowances. 

S/ Roberts Jernigan, Jr. 

This bill would increase subsistence allowances of state boards and com- 
missions to $20 per day in the event the actual cost to the person amounted 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 243 

to $20.00. This should also be made applicable to all state employees re- 
quired to travel on business of the State in my opinion. 

By the previous enactment of H. B. 150 in the earlier part of this session, 
the effect of H. B. 94 is also to increase subsistence paid members of the 
General Assembly from $12 per day to $20 per day. Members would draw 
this whether subsistence actually cost this much or not. I think this is 
wrong. I do not believe actual subsistence cost per day exceeds $15 to $16 
per day. 

I opposed this bill and desire to be recorded as voting against it. I realize 
there are other costs to members, such as stamps and long distance calls. 
If members should be compensated for these expenses, then do it directly 
by a bill, not indirectly. 

If member's salaries are not sufficient as set in the Constitution, then an 
amendment to the Constitution should be proposed increasing the amount of 
salaries, not indirectly doing so by increasing the subsistence allowance. 

S/ A. A. Zollicoffer, Jr. 

I would like for the Journal to show that I voted against H. B. 94 to 
increase per diem and allowances of state boards, etc.

INTRODUCTION OF BILLS AND RESOLUTIONS 

Bills and resolutions are introduced, read the first time, and disposed 
of as follows: 

By Representative Leatherman : 

H. R. 438, a joint resolution honoring the life and memory of Kemp Battle 
Nixon, former member of the General Assembly. 

Whereas, the General Assembly of North Carolina acknowledges with 
deep regret that the Honorable Kemp Battle Nixon of Lincolnton died on 
August 27, 1964; and 

Whereas, the Honorable Kemp Battle Nixon was born in East Lincoln 
County on August 12, 1883, and was engaged in the practice of law in 
Lincolnton from 1908 until the time of his death; and 

Whereas, the Honorable Kemp Battle Nixon was a devoted and valuable 
member of the Board of Trustees of the University of North Carolina from 
his election in 1935 until his death and served on numerous committees of 
the Board, his devotion to this public service being manifested by the fact 
that he failed to attend only three meetings in nearly thirty years on the 
Board; and 

Whereas, the Honorable Kemp Battle Nixon was an active participant 
in the affairs of his community, having been a faithful member of the 
Methodist Church, a Mason, a Shriner, a member of the Board of Directors 
of the First National Bank of Lincolnton and was the acknowledged un- 
official historian of Lincoln County, his knowledge and recollections of 
North Carolina family histories being legendary; and 

Whereas, the Honorable Kemp Battle Nixon was a dedicated public serv- 
ant, having served as Judge of Lincoln County Recorder's Court, Lincoln 
County Attorney, and as a distinguished member of the North Carolina 
General Assembly for two terms, having served in the Senate in 1931 and 
1935; Now, Therefore, 

Be it Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring: 

Section 1. The General Assembly of North Carolina does hereby join in 
the sorrow of the family of the Honorable Kemp Battle Nixon at his pass- 
ing, and does hereby express profound and sincere appreciation for the life 
and character of this distinguished man. 

Sec. 2. This Resolution shall become a part of the public records of the 
1965 Session of the General Assembly and a copy shall be duly certified by

By Representative Bunn : 

H. R. 439, a joint resolution of courtesy and appreciation honoring the 
forty-four mothers selected to represent the State of North Carolina this 
year of 1965. 

Whereas, we are aware of the great contribution Mothers always have, 
and still are making to the building of a better state, nation, and world. 
The responsibility of training the children, feeding the growing bodies and 
directing the spiritual development of all entrusted to their care, has ever 
been an important service to mankind; and 

Whereas, you have attained recognition in this high calling of mother- 
hood, we welcome you Mothers to these legislative halls today where the 
laws of our state are enacted. But, we realize that those laws that are most 
binding and influential on our lives are those that have directed us through 
the years and are based, not only on justice, but on that strongest of all 
enforcement agencies — a Mother's love; and 

Whereas, we welcome you here as the greatest power for good in our 
land, as the greatest advocates of good government, and the greatest sup- 
porters of the laws that are enacted here; and 

Whereas, we welcome you as recognized builders of homes, homes that 
are law abiding and God-fearing; homes that nurture ideals for youth and 
stand as a challenge to those who through training and experience have 
found the road to true happiness; and 

Whereas, we welcome you because of your consideration, kindness and 
supporting advice to us, the men, who would be worth little anywhere with- 
out them; and 

Whereas, it is the pleasure of the members of this legislative House to 
have you with us today, and we would join with your organization in recog- 
nizing the honor that has come to each of you and, through you, to our 
state. We believe the words of the writer who said: "So long as there are 
homes to which men turn at close of day, so long as there are homes where 
children are where mothers stay, if love and loyalty and faith be found 
across these sills, a stricken nation can recover from its gravest ills"; Now, 
Therefore, 

Be it Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

STATEMENT BY MEMBER 

North Carolina workers deserve an honest hour's wage for an honest 
hour's work. We have workers in our state today whose only guarantee of 
this wage is the State Minimum Wage Law — a law that by any reasonable 
standard of measure is inadequate in its provisions, a law that does not 
meet the basic needs and demands of those whose needs are greatest. By 
raising the minimum to a reasonable and more realistic level, we have the 
opportunity of providing a guarantee more equal to that enjoyed by the 
vast majority of our citizens under federal law. 

Minimum wage is not a new issue. It has long been an important subject 
in the minds of Representatives to the North Carolina General Assembly. 
Bills were introduced, but defeated in 7 of the 10 sessions before the citizens 
of this state finally got a state minimum wage law in 1959, a law that has 
benefitted thousands of our workers in the five years it has been in effect. 

In 1959 the Department of Labor estimated that some 55,000 workers were 
directly benefitted by the 75^ minimum wage legislation enacted in that 
year, even with the many exemptions that were written in. Exemptions in- 
cluded establishments employing less than six workers (later amended to 
less than four), a group of about 6000 waitresses and 2000 bellhops and 
porters whose earnings are derived mostly from tips; 1000 part time sea- 
food and fishing industry workers; 1000 theatre ushers, doormen, cashiers, 
and concession attendants, and 800 nursing home employees. An undeter- 
mined number of public and private hospital employees earning less than 
75c 1 an hour were also exempt. Exemptions went on to include farm work- 
ers, persons under 21 employed by their parents, minors under 16 regardless 
of who employs them; baby-sitters, golf caddies, newsboys, shoe shine boys, 
pin boys in bowling alleys, part-time student workers, summer camp em- 



322 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

ployees, salesman, employes on a commission basis and employees on non- 
profit educational, charitable, and religious organizations where the relation- 
ship of employer and employee does not really exist. And still, with all 
these exemptions 55,000 people directly benefitted from this first law. 

In 1959 the earnings of all workers in North Carolina's laundry and dry 
cleaning industry averaged only 74c' per hour. Yet some businessmen testi- 
fied that this law would hurt them. I remember one, a laundry owner, who 
testified in committee that if the 75<f wage bill were passed it would wreck 
his business. Since that time his laundry has expanded several times over 
and he continues to open new branches. That's the kind of "wrecking" all 
businesses could stand mere of. 

In that same year the Small Business Committee of North Carolina was 
strong in its fight against minimum wage, as it had been in previous years. 
Still, less than 3V2% of the state's business firms responded to its call for 
assistance in the fight, and these firms employed only 1.64% of all the 
state's covered workers. Thus, not only employees, but most employers see 
the value of minimum wage legislation. Indeed, a large asset for business- 
men is that it protects employers who pay a fair wage from unfair competi- 
tion with other employers who would not voluntarily pay reasonable wages. 

In 1961, two years later, the General Assembly expanded coverage of the 
law to make it apply to establishments employing four or more workers 
rather than six or more as it was enacted in 1959. As amended, the law 
applied to all non-exempt workers in an establishments, even if some of the 
"four or more" employees in the business were exempt. This meant that 
20,000 more North Carolinians directly benefitted from minimum wage. 
Again in 1963 the law was expanded, and the General Assembly increased 
the minimum to 85^ per hour in a compromise move. A bill which would 
have increased the minimum to $1.00 an hour passed the Senate, but was 
narrowly defeated in the House. The 85^ minimum, having the same ex- 
emptions as the 75<* law, further increased the earnings and purchasing 
power of the state's lowest paid employees. 

Thirty-two other states had minimum wage laws before North Carolina 
enacted one, becoming the only southern state to protect workers not covered 
under federal law. At present, thirty-four states have minimum wage laws, 
twenty-one of which call for rates of $1.00 per hour or more. 

Furthermore, there is a federal statute applying to all states which sets 
the minimum wage rate at $1.25 and provides for overtime pay of not less 
than IV2 times the employer's regular rates. This applies to all employees 
engaged in or producing goods for interstate commerce, some 800,000 in 
North Carolina. 

At present there is a gap of 40< 4 an hour between the $1.25 federal wage 
standard enjoyed by these 800,000 and the 85<? standard which is the sole 
protection of the 250,000 North Carolinians not covered by federal law. 
Even if North Carolina had a $1.00 an hour minimum, a difference of 25<? 
would still exist between state and federal wage requirements. But that 
dollar would mean a lot. The Labor Department estimates that a $1.00 
minimum wage would bring direct wage increases to some 50,000 of the 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 323 

lowest paid workers in retail and service businesses, increasing their earn- 
ings by around IV^; an hour per worker on the average, giving them addi- 
tional purchasing power of about $150.00 per year per worker, and increas- 
ing the total annual purchasing power of this group by some 7V2 million 
dollars. 

And the Labor Department has given its assurance that in view of the 
prosperous condition of the state's economy, of high employment levels, of 
booming construction, and of high retail sales, the increase could bring 
nothing but good effects to both business and employment. In the seven 
years between 1958 (a year before the first North Carolina minimum wage 
law was enacted) and 1963, the state benefitted from an increase in total 
retail sales of 1 billion, 138 million dollars. Per capita income in North 
Carolina has risen more than $300.00 in that period — from $1,492.00 in 1959 
to $1,807.00 in 1963. A per capita income of $1,900.00 was predicted for 
1964 in the state. North Carolina is in good shape; business in North Caro- 
lina is in good shape; there is no good reason why we can't help those in 
the lower income brackets who have no financial security other than the 
state minimum wage law. Indeed, we can't afford not to help them. 

We can be proud of our minimum wage law. It helped North Carolina's 
most needy families to help themselves; it brought a minimum basic stand- 
ard of living to many thousands of tarheels who had never before had any 
guarantee of a living wage. But it is not enough. In 1963 it was estimated 
that had the minimum wage law been set at $1.00 then, more than 50,000 
workers would have benefitted a total amount of 24 million dollars per 
year, 24 million dollars more purchasing power, 24 million dollars to the 
overall economy of the state. 

The time is already late; North Carolina, while ranking 10th in the na- 
tion in number of workers employed in manufacturing, still ranks only 43rd 
in per capita income. We now have an opportunity to raise those figures. 
We cannot afford, North Carolina cannot afford, to let that opportunity go 
by again. I sincerely hope that this great body will vote for and pass 
H. B. 100.

STATEMENT BY MEMBER 

I vote "Noe" on H. B. 255 because the amendment to exclude the 73 elec- 
tric municipalities from the provisions of the bill failed. If this amendment 
had carried, I would have voted for H. B. 255 because most of the remain- 
ing portions of the bill are in the public interest. The electric municipalities 
were not parties to the agreement between the power companies and the 
rural electric cooperatives. Therefore, I do not think the electric munici- 
palities should be affected by the bill. 
April 13, 1965. 

(Signed) W. R. Britt 

J. E. Paschall 

H. B. 196, a bill to be entitled an act to amend General Statutes 143-36 
of the State Personnel Act relating to the procedure and method of award- 
ing efficiency or merit salary increments to state employees.

SPECIAL MESSAGE 

TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

BY THE HONORABLE DAN K. MOORE 

GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the General Assembly, and my 
fellow North Carolinians. 

You know why I am here today. You know that I will present to you a 
Highway Safety Program and that I will urge that it be made into law. 

First, I must convince you and the people of North Carolina that there 
is an urgent and a desperate need for immediate action. 

I must drive home to you that this is a matter of life and death. A 
matter that just cannot wait any longer. A crisis that must have official and 
complete action. Now. Not later. Not half-way. Not piece-meal . . . but a 
total program which must not be delayed any longer. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 347 

Shall I start by showing you photographs of dead bodies? I think not. 
You've seen the smashed cars and the bloody bodies before . . . many times. 
But each time, the sight made only a momentary impression — to be for- 
gotten only five minutes or five miles later. 

How about these ? At my hand is all that remains of one thousand, five 
hundred, seventy-six human beings. They're dead. All killed in a single 
year, last year on North Carolina highways. These are accident reports that 
describe tragic events that affected thousands besides the victims. 

There are thirty times this many who suffered painful, agonizing injury. 
The actual number is forty-nine thousand. 

Did those figures mean anything to you? Or were they just more of the 
same old numbers we've heard before — and dismissed from our minds? 

Well, then try these numbers. Listen to them carefully because they spell 
out an epidemic more deadly than disease. 

In the last four years alone, highway deaths in our state have increased 
twenty-five percent. 

Injuries are up forty-two percent. 

Total accidents have jumped thirty-eight percent. 

At the same time, the number of vehicles in our state increased only 
eighteen prcent. 

These are not just the same old figures. This is a runaway that must be 
stopped before it is a stampede. 

With only eighteen percent more vehicles, we are killing twenty-five 
percent faster. 

Injuring forty-two percent faster. 

And smashing into one another thirty-eight percent more often. 

Of course, that's only the human loss. The economic loss involves about 
two hundred ninety-three million dollars. That's about eight hundred thou- 
sand dollars a day. 

Accept this as fact! Traffic accidents are an epidemic . . . and they are 
out of control. On top of this, imagine what will happen as we add nearly 
a hundred thousand more cars and drivers each year. 

We must realize the urgent and desperate need for action. 

We must have the courage to make laws and spend the money — without 
compromise — to meet this matter of life and death, and control it now! 
Now! . . . that our people may not die. 

What shall we allow to stand in our way? 

Can we wait for some magic solution to come along? 

Can we afford to pat ourselves on the back and say, "We are doing all 



348 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

Can we justify further delay with empty words like "inconvenience?" 

The answer to all of these questions is no! 

There is no single solution. 

We have not done all we can to protect lives and property on the 
highways. 

We must not; we cannot let individual inconvenience block our determi- 
nation. Neither you nor I can afford to let our political ambition or popu- 
larity stand in the way. Our obligation to the men, women, and children of 
North Carolina demands that we take firm action. Now, 

If the traffic accident toll stops rising in North Carolina, it will come from 
action in this session of the General Assembly. 

The program will be built on a foundation of laws. It will involve the 
cooperative action of highway engineering, driver licensing and exami- 
nation, law enforcement, driver education, driver improvement, motor ve- 
hicle inspection, research and the administration of justice. 

All of these efforts must be grounded in the latest knowledge available 
in physics, in civil engineering, medicine plus psychology, sociology and mass 
communications. A total program of coordinated action. 

We can stop the increase in accidents in North Carolina if you give us 
the laws. We cannot wait for individual drivers to be shocked into saving 
themselves. Only the people as citizens, acting through their elected repre- 
sentatives, can provide the tools to save lives on our highways. 

Here are our primary goals to improve highway safety: 

1. We must obtain, through administrative action and direction, greater 
use of existing manpower and resources. 

2. We must make greater use of modern knowledge and existing research 
in helping solve these many complex problems. 

3. With legislative support, we must strengthen existing programs and 
use new methods which have proven effective in our state or elsewhere. 

4. We must obtain greater public understanding and support. 

North Carolina Traffic Safety Authority 

In order to make greater use of existing resources, we must have greater 
coordination of traffic safety efforts among the various agencies. The results 
will total more than the simple sum of their individual efforts. 

I recommend the General Assembly create by formal statute a coordinat- 
ing board to be known as the North Carolina Traffic Safety Authority. 

Its principal efforts would be: 

1. To develop the state's action program for traffic safety. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 349 

2. To provide continuing guidance of the state's overall attack on acci- 
dents. 

3. To guide the state's efforts to inform the people about traffic accident 
prevention programs and to make clear the individual responsibilities of 
motorists and citizens. I know that we can count on the full support of all 
news media to make the most effective use of safety information. 

Traffic safety in North Carolina should no longer be thought of as the 
providence of any one agency. It should command all of the state's resources 
and cooperation. This new relationship must be fully understood by every- 
one. 

Membership of the Traffic Safety Authority would include : the Governor, 
as Chairman; the Commissioners of Motor Vehicles, Insurance, Labor and 
Agriculture; the Chairmen of the State Highway Commission, the Industrial 
Commission, the State Board of Education, and the Utilities Commission; 
the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, the State Health Director, 
the Attorney General; the President of the North Carolina Traffic Safety 
Council; and a member of the House of Representatives appointed by the 
Speaker, and a member of the Senate appointed by the President of the 
Senate. 

University Highway Safety Research Center 

We must close the gap which exists between knowledge created by re- 
search findings and its use in saving lives on our streets and highways. 

We must harness the knowledge which is already available on the campus- 
es of our colleges, universities, and research centers. We can and should 
utilize immediately the knowledge which is already existing in the scientific 
disciplines. 

We need a central location with a small staff to provide for the orderly 
use of university personnel who will consult with the North Carolina 
Traffic Safety Authority and separate agencies of state and local govern- 
ment. 

Therefore, I recommend the creation of a Highway Safety Research Cen- 
ter within the University of North Carolina. 

The Center first would encourage university-wide involvement in the 
state's total accident prevention effort and would provide objective analysis 
of our current safety programs all across the board — from driver improve- 
ment to public education. 

Second, the Center would coordinate and participate in professional train- 
ing of the hundreds of people already on the job in the traffic safety field 
in North Carolina. The improvement of the skills and knowledge of those 
already in the field would yield great benefits without great expense. 

Third, the Center would coordinate all research in traffic accident pre- 
vention in our colleges and research centers. 



350 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

A biennial budget of one hundred thousand dollars would be sufficient to 
establish the Center. 

Utilize Proven Programs 

Now let us look at our third primary goal : to strengthen existing pro- 
grams and use new methods which have proven effective in our state or 
elsewhere. To achieve this goal, we must direct our efforts at the environ- 
ment in which the driver operates, and at the driver, himself. 

I am convinced that the quickest way to improve the environment for our 
motorists is to remove unsafe vehicles from the highways. The only effective 
way to reduce this major hazard is to require the periodic inspection of 
every vehicle registered in the state. 

I know some of you feel that mechanical failure is not a significant cause 
of accidents. 

Defects in Accidents 

Mechanical defects do cause accidents. About ten percent of the accidents 
in North Carolina are caused by mechanical defects, according to our own 
accident records. 

Other states and research show much higher proportions. 

Twenty-one states have reduced accidents as soon as inspection programs 
were put to work. North Carolina's one-year experience in 1948 saw a 
reduction of more than one hundred fatalities (or twelve percent; from the 
previous year. 

The year after the inspection law was repealed, the toll jumped by more 
than one hundred lives and has been climbing ever since. 

North Carolina is suffering the loss of more than one hundred lives every 
year that it delays adoption of motor vehicle inspection. 

Unnecessary Repairs 

Some people fear that an inspection system using private garages will 
result in unnecessary repairs. 

The bill I am recommending provides for safety inspection of only those 
items absolutely essential to safe operation — brakes, lights, steering mec- 
hanism, horn, and windshield wipers, tires and directional signals where 
required. The bill provides no higher standards for these items than what 
is already l-equired in our present statutes. 

The bill provides for inspection stations to be selected and supervised by 
the state. The stations would be checked on a regular basis and complaints 
from car owners would be investigated and corrected promptly. 

Cars failing to meet the minimum standards could be repaired at any 
firm of the owner's choice and would be re-inspected free of charge. Cost 
of inspection would be $1.50 with 25c being turned over to the state to 
make the program self-supporting. 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 351 

Inconvenience 

By far the most common objection to inspection is the bad memory of the 
1948 experience and the fear that any system would cause undue incon- 
venience to the public. It is the easiest objection to overcome. 

This bill will require one inspection per year and inspection dates will 
be staggered throughout six months so that only one-sixth of the state's 
vehicles would be inspected in any one month. 

All of the objections we might mention would add up to a fear of improper 
administration of any inspection program. 

I pledge to you and the people of North Carolina that there will be a 
reasonable and proper administration of this program. 

Vehicle inspection will not solve the entire accident problem. But it 
promises more results faster than any other single bill you will consider in 
this session. Without its passage, I see little hope for an immediate impact 
on the rising accident toll. 

Reflectorized Plates 

A very promising safety device on the vehicle to improve the environment 
of drivers is the reflectorized license plate. At night, they are visible three 
times farther away than ordinary tailight reflectors. Seventeen states and 
the District of Columbia are reducing nightime collisions by using reflective 
safety plates. 

The approximate cost for North Carolina to institute reflectorization of 
plates would be 13c per plate. I recommend you adopt these new plates 
as a one-year experiment to test this device in our state. 

Since 1966 plates are already in production, a change-over could not be 
accomplished until the 1967 issue. This would provide ample time to obtain 
basic data on nighttime collisions to assure a thorough and meaningful com- 
parison. 

Outside Mirror and Seat Bealts 

As another means of providing safer vehicles for our motorists, I recom- 
mend a law to require outside mirrors on the driver's side of all new cars 
sold in North Carolina after January 1, 1966. I am pleased to learn that 
auto manufacturers plan to install seat belts in the front and back seats 
of all new cars beginning next year. This is a further step in the right 
direction and complements North Carolina's efforts to establish seat belts 
as standard equipment. 

The Highway 

The three hundred million bond issue you have approved will be helpful 
in providing safer highways. I shall also make a number of requests to 
the Highway Commission to increase the portion of highway funds now 
being used to mark and sign the highways and to reduce current engineer- 
ing hazards. No additional legislation is required at this time. 

12 



352 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

All of the above items deal with the environment of drivers. They seek 
to produce safer vehicles and safer highways. The following items are 
those which show the greatest promise in improving the habits of our 
drivers. 

Drivers 

Driver Education 

In combatting the problem of driver errors, the most effective long-range 
plan yet devised is driver education. We must raise a new generation which 
is fully armed for survival in the automotive age. Young people have the 
most to lose in traffic accidents and we must teach them that it is smart 
to be safe. 

To do this we need to provide the established thirty-six driver educa- 
tion course in the public schools for every new driver under the age of 
eighteen in or out of school. We must also have a renewed safety education 
effort throughout all grade levels in the public schools. 

It will cost approximately two million dollars per year to put this pro- 
gram into effect. The direct savings on insurance premiums paid by our 
citizens will exceed this investment. 

Courts 

The front line of our attack on problem drivers is the court system. A 
top priority need to correct their behavior is a system of uniform courts 
called for in the constitutional amendment for court reform. Swift enact- 
ment of the court legislation now before you is vital to all of our efforts 
aimed at making safe drivers out of dangerous drivers. 

Additional Patrolmen 

North Carolina needs three hundred thirty-three additional highway 
patrolmen in order to reach the upper one-third of states which are prop- 
erly matching their fatal accident experience with sufficient law enforcement 
coverage. 

Each additional patrolman will cost ten thousand dollars. I have care- 
fully considered the question of how many patrolmen to ask you to author- 
ize. Keeping all of our needs in mind, I recommend the additional of fifty 
patrolmen in each of the next four years. I hope that at least that number 
will be added every year afterwards until the manpower of the patrol 
reaches accepted standards. 

I pledge to you that this administration will make every possible effort 
to see that our highway patrol stays on the highway patrolling. And I 
shall work with court officials to reduce as far as possible the patrolmen's 
time spent in court. 

Drunk Driving 

Drunk driving is one of the most criminal acts modern man can commit. 
So often, innocent people are the ones who suffer from wrecks with drunken 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 353 

drivers. We have a good law in this connection and it should not be weak- 
ened. We will watch with interest further experience with the chemical 
test provisions. 

Driving After Revocation 

Persons whose licenses have been suspended or revoked have committed 
sufficient unlawful acts to force the state to remove them from the high- 
ways. That is, the state has used the last resort to improve their driving 
habits and there is no recourse left but to take away their privilege to use 
the highways. 

When persons are convicted of driving after suspension or revocation of 
their license they should by law receive a mandatory jail sentence of from 
two to ninety days. I recommend you pass such a law. 

Additional Licensing Steps 

The following additional steps in improved driver licensing should be 
enacted. 

Convictions for flagrant violations out of state should be considered in 
assessing points under the driver license point system. 

We should include eighteen and nineteen year old drivers under the pro- 
visional license laws which now covers drivers from sixteen to seventeen. 

We should approve the driver license compact to establish the concept 
throughout the United States of one state license for drivers. This will 
prevent the eventual federal licensing of drivers. 

Dangerous Loopholes 

Two loopholes in North Carolina's motor vehicle laws allow drivers who 
are found guilty of traffic violations to escape the recording of "points" on 
their violation records. 

Prayer for Judgment Continued 

The effect of "prayer for judgment continued' is that the judge finds the 
defendant guilty but no judgment is entered. Technically, the case is not 
closed and, therefore, no points can be assigned to the individual's driving 
record. 

"Nolo Contendere" 

The plea of "nolo contendere" amounts to an admission of guilt for the 
proceeding at hand and cannot be admitted into subsequent litigation. Tech- 
nically, the Department of Motor Vehicles cannot consider such a plea when 
it has the discretionary authority of assigning points. 

Both of the above conditions are defined as final convictions under North 
Carolina's Financial Responsibility Law, but are not so considered under 
the Uniform Driver's License Act. 



354 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

Thus, the purpose of the point system is defeated. The Driver's License 
Act should be brought into conformity with the Financial Responsibility 
Law. The assignment of points should depend on the factual realities of a 
driver's conduct, as decided by a court, and not on courtroom technicalities. 

Finances 

Obviously, there is a price tag on most of the items we have listed. Let 
me list them. 

Biennium 

Highway Safety Research Center $ 100,000 

Driver Education 4,245,273 

Reflectorized plates 285,000 

100 additional patrolmen 1,000,000 

TOTAL $5,630,273 

Funds for the Safety Research Center and for driver education will be 
made available through the General Fund. Dr. Charles F. Carroll, Super- 
intendent of Public Instruction, informs me that, in view of the enactment 
of the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the funds neces- 
sary to finance the driver education program can be found in the recom- 
mended budgets for the nine-months school term. We will work together 
with the appropriations committee to make the adjustments necessary to 
accomplish this program. This will not affect other recommendations which 
I have made concerning the public schools. 

Funds for the reflectorized plates and the one hundred additional patrol- 
men will be made available through the state highway fund. 

Certainly there are some costs involved in the total program, but we are 
dealing with a matter of life and death and untold property destruction. 
The success of this program will justify the expense involved. 

When we consider the cost of this safety program, please remember that 
highway accidents cost North Carolina eight hundred thousand dollars 
each day of the year. 

Everyone of us pays this unnecessary penalty. 

Accident prevention does not cost — it pays. 

Local Action 

I have described to you a comprehensive program for the State of North 
Carolina. Since almost half of our non-fatal accidents occur within city 
limits, municipal governments must also participate in this total state-wide 
campaign to reduce the highway toll. I urge local officials to support this 
state program with maximum local effort. 

Established guidelines for obtaining official coordination and organizing 
citizen support are available through the North Carolina Traffic Safety 
Council to cities of five thousand population or more. The Council is eager 



1965] HOUSE JOURNAL 355 

and ready to provide full field services to those municipalities who seek 
help in a coordinated attack on traffic accidents. New programs are being 
developed and will be announced when completed. 

The safety program which I have recommended to you is reasonable. It 
is realistic. It is the result of weeks of concentrated work by competent, 
experienced safety people. I am convinced that it can get results. 

First, it brings together the many different proven means which have 
saved lives in North Carolina and other states . . . means which are accept- 
able to the public. 

Second, it commits all of the state's resources in an organized effort to 
save lives and property. 

Third, it makes maximum use of the knowledge which modern science 
has made available. 

Fourth, it provides for improved public understanding and support. 

But remember that there is no single, magic solution. No quick cure. 
Many have thought they had found one. Only to be disappointed. 

If each of us understand now how many, many factors are involved, and 
realize the urgent and immediate need, we shall have a total program of 
coordinated action. And that program will work. 

This is a beginning that can pay off now and in the long-run. But a 
beginning that must start here. 

Now! 

With you! 

Your action can make it a reality. 

You actually have the power to save human life and to prevent the 
staggering economic losses resulting each day from highway accidents. 

Use that ability! Exercise that power without delay and without com- 
promise. Join with me in placing above political popularity or ambition 
our obligation to the men, women and children of North Carolina. 

Thank you. 

After the Governor's address, on motion of Senator Morgan, the Joint 
Assembly dissolves, the Senate repairs to its Chambers, and the House re- 
sumes consideration of its business.

"For the beauty of the earth 

For the glories of the skies 

For the love which from our birth 

Over and around us lies. 

Lord of all to Thee we raise 

This our voice in grateful praise. 

Unto all of us, O Father, so much has been 
given. Remind us that unto whom so much has been given, of him shall so 
much be required. 

Be, we pray, O God, with this body as they meet today. Give to them 
wisdom and understanding beyond their own powers. Grant to them con- 
viction in their deliberations; yet, let them be ever mindful of those whom 
they represent. 

Be above them to shelter them, beneath them to hold them up, before 
them to lead them on, behind them to gather them when they stumble and 
fall, without to surround them with Thy love, and within them to give 
them life. 



446 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session

O God, be Honor, Might, Majesty, Dominion, and Power, now and forever.
