One hundred twenty members having answered the roll call, the 
Secretary of State declares a quorum is present. 

The Secretary of State announces that the first order of business is the 
election of a Speaker, and declares that nominations are in order: 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 13 

ELECTION OF OFFICERS 

Representative McMillan of Robeson places in nomination the name of 
Representative David M. Britt for Speaker of the 1967 House of 
Representatives. 

"Mr. Chairman, honored guests, fellow members of the House of Repre- 
sentatives: It is my particular pleasure and privilege to nominate for 
your consideration as Speaker of the 1967 House of Representatives my 
good friend and colleague, the Honorable David Maxwell Britt of Robeson. 

Because of the absence of the veto power on the part of the Governor of 
North Carolina, and for other reasons, the General Assembly of this State 
has often been referred to as the most powerful in the nation. 

The exercise of this tremendous power in the best interest of all of the 
people of North Carolina is a responsibility of awesome proportions and 
requires leadership of the finest caliber. 

The Speaker of this House of Representatives, then, must be a man of 
the highest integrity and ability, thoroughly versed in the history of our 
great State, with a profound knowledge of the needs of our people and of 
their willingness to provide for those needs. He must have the complete 
confidence of every member of the House, a thorough knowledge of the 
character and ability of each of us, and a fine sense of humor, in order that 
he might keep us from each other's throats in the heat of legislative battle. 
He must have at his fingertips, for instant use, all of the rules of this 
House, all of the rules of parliamentary procedure, and all of the rules of 
human nature, together with the judgment, the ability and the courage to 
use them to enact good legislation and to thwart that which is not in the 
best interest of our people. 

Mr. Chairman, the lady from Wayne, gentlemen of the House, I submit 
to you that the Honorable David Maxwell Britt of Robeson has all of these 
qualifications and many more. 

Mr. Britt was born in the fine little Robeson County Town of McDonald, 
a little over 21 years ago, the oldest of the seven children of Dudley H. and 
Martha Mae Hall Britt, whose forebears go far back in the history of that 
section of the State, having first settled in Robeson County in the early 
seventeen hundreds. 

Helping his father run a country store and farm during the depression 
years was good training for this energetic youngster, who, in the not too 
distant future, was destined to play a large part in shaping the State's more 
than two billion dollar budget, as Chairman of the House Appropriation 
Committee and as a member of the Advisory Budget Committee. 

Upon his graduation from Lumberton High School, he attended Wake 
Forest College and Wake Forest Law School as a self-help student. He 
passed the bar examinations in August of 1937, before he was 21 years old. 
Being too young to meet the State's requirement for a law license, he 
had to wait several months to begin his practice. 



14 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

He is still a serious student of the law — from the legislative process, to 
the courts of justice — having- served as a practicing: attorney, as a 
solicitor, as a member of the General Statutes Commission, as a member 
of the Courts Commission, and as Chairman of the Committee on Courts and 
Judicial Districts of this House, with much of the responsibility for the 
current major changes in our State's judicial structure. 

The people of his hometown of Fairmont, his home county of Robeson, 
and throughout the State of North Carolina have called on the many 
talents of David Britt, and he has responded most generously and ably, 
serving his local church, the First Baptist, for many years as an officer 
and Sunday School teacher, his community as chairman at one time or 
another of almost every worthwhile activity, including four years as 
Chairman of the school board. 

His successful direction of local and county affairs earned for him the 
Adrian B. McRae Award as 'Man of the Year' for Robeson County in 1957 
and attracted the attention of leaders throughout the area, who entrusted 
him with ever broader and heavier responsibilities, including that of 
Governor of his district of Rotary International, Chairman of the Demo- 
cratic Party of Robeson County, member for two terms of the State 
Democratic Executive Committee, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of 
Southeastern General Hospital and Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees 
of North Carolina Cancer Institute, Chairman of the Robeson Baptist 
Association, member of the General Board of the Baptist State Convention, 
member of the Board of Trustees of Wake Forest College, and President 
of it's alumni association. 

Mr. Britt served his country during World War II as a private in the 
United States Army and is a member of the American Legion. 

The finest thing he ever did was to marry the former Louise Teague of 
Fairmont and raise three fine daughters and one fine son. 

There are always many aspirants for this high office and usually there 
are several actual candidates. 

Why, then, did David Britt receive the nomination of the Democratic 
Caucus unanimously and without even the mention of any other candidate? 

There are many members of this House who have outstanding records 
of public service and are highly capable leaders in their own right. 

Why, then, have these same men, without exception, tacitly agreed even 
as long as four years ago that David Britt would be their Speaker in 1967? 

I think the answer lies in a compelling desire on the part of this unusual 
man to render outstanding service in whatever he may undertake — a desire 
that drives him to work harder than anyone I have known to gain a 
thorough knowledge of the subject at hand, and then to make his decisions 
and carry out his plans with the confidence and the ability that can come 
only to one who has such a thorough knowledge and a strong reservoir of 
faith in the Supreme Being. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 15 

Mr. Chairman, fellow members of the House, it is my considered opinion 
that the Honorable David Maxwell Britt of Robeson is the best qualified 
man available for Speaker of the 1967 House of Representatives and, if 
elected, he will make one of the ablest Speakers the State has ever known. 

I, therefore, am proud to place his name in nomination for your 
consideration for this high office." 

S/ R. D. McMillan, Jr. 

The nomination is seconded by Representatives Hamrick and Jernigan. 
"Mr. Secretary of State, and Members of the House: 

I would like to take just a moment to relate to you some of my 
impressions of the abilities and character of the gentleman who has just 
been nominated for Speaker of the 1967 House of Representatives. 

It was during the 1961 General Assembly that I became acquainted with 
David Britt. He was then serving his second term as a member of the 
House. I had the privilege of serving with him on a Judiciary Committee 
which handled a great number of bills considered at that General Assembly. 
We had numerous meetings of the committee which then held its sessions in 
the Supreme Court Clerk's Office in the Justice Building. After very few 
of the meetings of the committee, I was tremendously impressed with Mr. 
Britt's knowledge of the law and the enthusiasm with which he discharged 
his duties. 

When the 1963 General Assembly came along it was not surprising that 
the Speaker appointed David Britt Chairman of the important House 
Committee on Appropriations. Again, it was my privilege to serve on his 
committee and subcommittee. It was during his leadership of that committee 
that I became so impressed with his wide knowledge of the fiscal affairs 
of the State of North Carolina and its many agencies. More importantly, I 
found that he did not show partiality to any particular area of the State or 
to any particular agency. 

Then, in the 1965 Session of the General Assembly, David Britt was again 
given an assignment of great importance — that of heading the Committee 
on Courts and Judicial Districts. It thus became his responsibility to manage 
the legislation which gave North Carolina a Uniform System of Courts. 
Those of you who served in that session will recall the outstanding job 
which he did in that regard. 

I have mentioned only a few of the services he has rendered our State 
and there have been many more. In all of them, however, he has demon- 
strated his dedication to the tasks assigned to him. I have also mentioned 
only a few of the personal qualifications which our next Speaker possesses. 
In addition to these, he possesses a friendly manner, a willingness to help, 
and a great love for North Carolina. 

I once heard David Britt describe himself as a 'one-gallus small-town 
lawyer'. If this is a correct description, then we need more one-gallus small- 
town lawyers like him. I know of no person who is better qualified, by 
experience and otherwise, to provide the type of leadership which I think 
will be required in this Session of the General Assembly. 



16 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

It is my happy privilege to second the nomination of The Honorable 
David M. Britt, Representative from Robeson County, as Speaker of the 
1967 House of Representatives." 

S/ Claude M. Hamrick 



"Mr. Secretary of State, Ladies and Gentlemen of the House, distinguished 
guests and citizens of North Carolina : 

It is with a great deal of pleasure and much pride that I second the 
nomination for the next Speaker of the House of Representatives. This man 
is certainly no stranger to many of us, as some thirty years ago he and I, 
as well as others of you present, walked the campus together at Wake 
Forest College. Little did we know then that in the year 1967 this distin- 
guished public servant would be our nominee for Speaker, the third highest 
office in our State. In those years we did realize, however, that he possessed 
exceptional ability as a leader of men. This quality of leadership he has 
continued to exhibit in his own quiet, unassuming way. Those formative 
years were important ones for him — his straight-forwardness — his 
integrity — his character were all moulded by such great teachers as Dr. 
Billy Poteat, Dr. Gully, Dr. Kitchin and others. 

During the years men with less determination have fallen by the way. 
Our next Speaker, on the other hand, has increased in stature by participat- 
ing actively and unselfishly in church and civic affairs — never failing to 
provide the right leadership at the right time. Always thorough, always 
honest in his work, he knows no code except the Golden Rule, which all of 
us were commanded by our Lord to follow. 

Representatives Andrews, Auman, Bailey, Barbee, Barr, Baugh, Beatty, 
Bowles, Britt of Johnston, Bryan, Bumgardner, Bunn, Burden, Burrus, 

I have had the distinct honor of serving in the General Assembly under 
two speakers — two whom I had considered unsurpassed: The Honorable 
Clifton Blue and the Honorable Pat Taylor. North Carolina, being the great 
State that she is, has always been able to produce able leaders at the right 
time. Our State has again risen to the occasion — it has produced that 
leader — a man who can handle the weighty problems which we face. 
Fairmont, Robeson County, Wake Forest College — all three have had a 
hand in moulding this leader. I speak of no other than the Honorable David 
Britt." 

S/ R. H. Jernigan, Jr.

the name of Representative Don H. Garren of Henderson County for

Mr. Speaker Britt approaches the dais and makes the following remarks; 

"Many have said this General Assembly will face more difficult problems 
than any General Assembly in the history of our State. I agree that our 
work is cut out for us but I sincerely believe that we are equal to the task. 



18 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

Let us be reminded again that as the most powerful legislative body in 
America, we have no one to correct most of the errors we might make. The 
Governor of our State has no veto power and the Courts can set aside only 
those laws that violate the Federal or State Constitution. Therefore, it is 
important that we do not err. 

The problems that we face have answers. It behooves us to seek and to 
find the right answers. In many instances the right answer will not be easy 
or popular, but let us have the diligence to seek the right and the courage 
to enact it into law. 

It is not all-important that you or I be re-elected to this House or that we 
be elected to any other office, but it is all-important that we be faithful in 
discharging the responsibility that is now ours. In the discharge of our 
duties let us keep our eyes fixed on 1967." 

Mr. Speaker Britt assumes the duties of the Chair and announces that 
nominations are in order for Principal Clerk of the House of 
Representatives.

LEGISLATIVE MESSAGE 

of 

THE HONORABLE DAN K. MOORE 

GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The State Legislative Building 

Raleigh, North Carolina 

12:30 p. m., Thursday, February 9, 1967 

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

The people of North Carolina have selected you as their representatives to 
help formulate the programs that will give impetus to this State in the 
coming biennium and on into the future. Knowing of your genuine concern 
and interest in North Carolina, I welcome each of you to Raleigh. I look 
forward to close association with you, to your counsel, and to your 
assistance in building a better State. 

Today, perhaps more than on any other day in our history, North 
Carolina is a land of opportunity for all. Two years ago, I stood here 
and advocated programs designed to move North Carolina toward the 
total development of our abundant resources. My programs, then as now, 
were ambitious. They were generally accepted and improved upon by the 
1965 General Assembly. I have sought to implement my programs to the 
fullest expectations of those who gave them life. 

As a result of the careful administration of programs approved by the 
1965 General Assembly: 

— more of our young people are in the public schools and they are 
receiving a better education. They are staying in school longer and they 
are doing better in the college or technical institute of their choice. 

— the problems of disease and infirmity are of less burden to individuals 
and to communities. Treatment and care are improved at our institutions. 
Rehabilitation now has greater personal meaning to many. 

— we have more highways. They are becoming safer and more beautiful. 
Recreational and cultural advantages are closer to all and are being 
utilized more fully. 



30 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

— sound economic growth opportunities are increasing. More and better 
jobs are available. The standard of living is improving. Our young people 
can now stay in North Carolina and prosper. 

Yes, tremendous forward strides are being made. But, this is not the 
time to relax our efforts. North Carolina's greatness in many areas is still 
to be reached. Indeed, if anything, we must accelerate our pace to take 
full advantage of the prosperity and the opportunities which are ours today. 
My recommendations to you this afternoon are designed with that purpose 
in mind. 

In my Budget Message, on Monday evening, I will transmit the budget 
documents, appropriate bills, revenue estimates and other vital fiscal 
information including my recommendations for capital improvements, tax 
relief, economic development, long-range planning, improved management, 
and other matters. 

In the coming weeks and months, thei-e are major problems to be 
solved. There are now more than five million North Carolinians. Our people 
are congregating more in urban areas. Our communities are becoming more 
industrialized. Our farms are becoming more mechanized. Education, 
transportation, and society, itself, are changing. These things and others 
offer challenges to stimulate our imaginations and our abilities. 



OUR FIRST RESPONSIBILITY 

Education is the first concern and responsibility of this administration. 
Since my youth, I have been aware of the importance of education to our 
people. It is the foundation of progress and the cornerstone of hope for a 
better tomorrow. These are not merely cliches. They are statements of 
facts which have long been realized by governors, legislators, and other 
North Carolinians. 

I personally want to pay tribute, not only to members of the General 
Assembly, but to everyone who has contributed to the cause of education. 
From the University at the top of our public education structure to the 
first grades in schools throughout the State, a wonderful job is being 
done in educating the youth of North Carolina. Throughout the system, 
teachers and administrators are to be praised for their wise utilization of 
the resources given them to mould young North Carolinians into thinking 
men and women. 

By no means, do I want to leave the impression that we have done 
enough for education. This certainly is not the case. North Carolina, in spite 
of a decade of intensified educational progress, still has a long way to go 
to attain the system we desire. Because of our needs for today and 
tomorrow, I am recommending record biennial budgets for the public 
school system, the system of community colleges and for the institutions of 
higher learning. More than 70 per cent of every general fund tax dollar 
will go into public education. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 31 

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM 

North Carolina has every right to be proud of its public school system. 
Although North Carolina ranks forty-second in per capita personal income, 
we rank third in the nation in the per cent of state tax dollars provided the 
public schools. Unlike most other states, the State of North Carolina — not 
local government — has undertaken the tremendous responsibility of basic 
support of the system. 

We are fortunate to have available sufficient revenues to meet the major 
needs of our growing public school system. In my Budget Message, I will 
proudly recommend for the public schools the largest appropriation of 
general fund tax dollars ever presented to a General Assembly of North 
Carolina. I will recommend total general fund appropriations of $784,335,354 
(including retirement and social security, and debt service), an increase 
of $130,494,390, or 19.96 per cent above comparable expenditures for 
1965-67. 

It is imperative that this money be spent wisely to improve to the greatest 
extent possible the educational opportunities of our young people. 

My first recommendation is for a major increase in salaries of public 
school teachers and other personnel employed under the nine months school 
fund, as well as vocational education teachers. My recommendation will 
provide public school teachers with an average increase of 8.73 per cent in 
1967-68, and an additional 8.85 per cent in 1968-69, for a biennial total 
increase of 17.58 per cent. This was the exact recommendation of the State 
Board of Education. 

These increases will raise the minimum annual salary for an 'A' cer- 
tificate holder from $4,227.25 in 1966-67 to $5,004.25 in 1968-69. North 
Carolina can now reach its long sought goal of a $5,000 minimum annual 
salary for beginning teachers. The minimum annual salary for a graduate 
certificate holder will be raised from $4,745.25 to $5,605.50, to which can 
and should be added local supplements. When added to the 10 per cent 
legislative raise given teachers during this biennium, it will mean more than 
a 27 per cent salary increase in four years, the largest given during any 
administration in the last twenty years. 

In addition, I recommend appropriate pay increases for other school 
personnel. These include 50 per cent, from $10 to $15 per day, for sub- 
stitute teachers; five per cent in 1967-68 and an additional five per cent 
the following year for principals; five per cent for superintendents, assist- 
ant superintendents, supervisors, clerical assistants, property and cost 
clerks, attendance counselors, clerks in schools, mechanics, janitors and 
maids; and $10 per month for school bus drivers. In some categories, it will 
be necessary to appropriate some additional funds to comply with the new 
federal minimum wage law which became effective February 1. 

I also recommend: 

— the hiring of an additional 65 special education teachers for each year 
of the biennium (130 total). 

2 



32 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

— additional teacher scholarship loan funds to assist needy and worthy 
students. 

— additional funds for vocational rehabilitation services. 

— more administrative assistance. 

— the continuation of the Shakespeare and Sandburg- projects. 

— $400,000 for a thorough study by the Board of Education and the 
Superintendent of Public Instruction on the feasibility of public 
kindergartens. 

In continuing our efforts to provide free textbooks, I recommend the 
elimination of the present $5.00 fee paid by high school students. The 1965 
General Assembly approved my request to eliminate fees for elementary 
books. Your enactment of a free high school textbook system would put 
North Carolina in the forefront of the nation in providing free textbooks 
throughout the public school system. This will be another long time dream 
come true for North Carolina. 

Our State must continue its efforts in educational research, development 
and experimentation. I recommend the continuation of the Governor's School 
and of the comprehensive school improvement project which has been con- 
ducted for some time within the Department of Public Instruction. 

The Learning Institute of North Carolina has gain favorable recognition 
for its pioneering efforts in educational innovation. Many of its objectives, 
however, have been given to the new Regional Education Laboratory for 
the Carolinas and Virginia. LINC was instrumental in setting up this 
new federal funded, nonprofit organization. The Learning Institute still 
has a major role to play, however, and I recommend it continue to press 
forward with educational research. I also recommend that state funds 
utilized by LINC be placed under the control of the State Board of 
Education. 

If the State Board of Education recommends continuation of the advance- 
ment school, I will endorse its position. 

We must ever seek to improve and better utilize our public school educa- 
tional resources. The future demands that North Carolina provide its young 
with the best educational opportunities possible. In order to give us 
direction and creative leadership, I recommend that you authorize the 
appointment of a 'Blue Ribbon' Commission to study all aspects of the 
public school system in North Carolina. This commission should review our 
school policies, programs and goals in light of present and future needs. A 
resume of its findings and any necessary recommendations should be made 
to the Governor and the 1969 General Assembly. 

COMMUNITY COLLEGES 

The community college system, with its technical institutes and industrial 
education centers, is among the most valuable educational resources of our 
State. Educational benefits — from learning to read and write to acquiring 
highly technical skills — are available to all at these institutions. Con- 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 33 

siderable progress has been made within the system during the present 
biennium. Its educational role will increase. In fact, during the next 
biennium, it is estimated that present enrollment of 22,892 full-time 
equivalent students will almost double. 

I recommend a substantial increase in appropriations to meet expected 
needs. I also recommend the conversion of Wayne Technical Institute to a 
community college, the establishment of four new branch units, and an 
increase for new industry training programs. Beyond this, I strongly 
recommend that the existing institutions be strengthened and well estab- 
lished before any further expansion of the system is authorized. 

For community college teaching personnel, I recommend salary increases 
of eight per cent in 1967-68, and an additional four per cent in 1968-69. I 
also recommend a five per cent increase, beginning fiscal 1967-68, for non- 
instructional personnel. 

HIGHER EDUCATION 

Higher education in North Carolina is today at a crossroads. In one 
direction is the continued orderly development of our institutions, full 
utilization of our higher education resources, and attainment of defined 
goals by set standards. The other direction goes off into the unknown, 
leading perhaps to unwise duplication, unnecessary rivalry for limited 
appropriations and a general weakening of our state supported higher 
education system. The direction North Carolina takes, ladies and gentlemen, 
is for you to decide in the months ahead. 

Two years ago, I recommended and the General Assembly approved a 
reorganization of the State Board of Higher Education. The reorganization 
was made to enable the Board to provide affirmative and creative leadership 
for public higher education. Specific responsibility for formulating statewide 
long-range higher educational plans was assigned to the Board. 

In the current biennium, the Board has undertaken, with my complete 
support and with the assistance of the University and each of our senior 
college presidents, a thorough study of state-supported higher education. 
The study encompasses state objectives and goals, enrollments, admissions, 
financing and the future of our predominantly negro colleges. This study 
will not be completed until 1968 but I will have an additional message on 
the findings and recommendations thus far later in this Session. 

The demands on our system of higher education are growing. Our 
University, with its four campuses, and our twelve four-year colleges now 
have enrolled approximately 59.7 per cent of the students attending college 
in North Carolina. Numerically, enrollment at these institutions is expected 
to reach 67,294 full time equivalent students by 1968-69, an increase of 
25 per cent over current budgeted enrollment. 

Each state-supported institution of higher learning has an increasingly 
important part to play in our efforts to insure every North Carolinian the 
opportunity to attend a college of exceptional quality. While all institutions 
must develop to the fullest, I remain convinced of the soundness and the 
many advantages of the one-university concept. It has served and continues 



34 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

to serve this state well and I remain determined to oppose any effort to 
deprive the people of North Carolina of the positive benefits of consoli- 
dation. No major change in our system of higher education should be made 
until the study now under way is completed, and the future of our system 
of higher education is clearly charted. 

The University, itself, is not above improvement. It must continue to 
improve all of its services to the people of this State. In this light, I com- 
mend for your consideration the report of the Commission on the Study of 
the Board of Trustees of the University of North Carolina. The Commission 
was chaired by former Governor Luther Hodges and was made up of out- 
standing North Carolina citizens. I will have additional comments on this 
report in a later message. 

At the University and throughout our system of higher education, there 
is a need to strengthen faculty and administration. We must keep at our 
institutions outstanding scholars who can contribute to the development 
of our young people and we must bring additional outstanding professors 
to our campuses. 

Therefore, I recommend a substantial appropriation for adjustments in 
the salaries of academic and administrative personnel in higher education, 
including the School of the Arts. The distribution of the funds is to be 
made at the discretion of institutional heads. My recommendations provide 
for salary increases ranging from seven to nine per cent in 1967-68, and 
an additional four per cent during the second year. The more disadvantaged 
institutions will benefit most from these increases. 

Increases are recommended to further strengthen the staff of the Board 
of Higher Education. 

I also recommend appropriations to improve institutional research and 
development offices, expand highway safety research, improve the student- 
teacher ratio in graduate programs, and implement new research and 
graduate programs. 

My recommendation for the biennium represents a 39.5 per cent increase 
in operating appropriations for state-supported higher education. When 
combined with the substantial increases granted by the 1965 General 
Assembly, it will mean that we have increased biennial appropriations for 
higher education by 92.5 per cent over the level of spending in 1963-65. In 
addition, in my Budget Message, I will recommend a large appropriation 
for capital improvements at our institutions of higher learning. 

CULTURE 

North Carolina has long been recognized for its cultural achievements. 
We lead the nation in the per cent of tax funds spent on the arts. North 
Carolina had the first State Symphony. It was the first state to finance art 
purchases for our people, to support outdoor dramas, and to appropriate 
funds for a theater building. Our North Carolina School of the Arts is 
unique and has attracted international attention. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 35 

Now is the time, I believe, to consider plans for construction of a new 
State Art Museum Building. This structure must be a building which is, 
itself, a work of art. It must be large enough to house the valuable art 
collection North Carolina has now and which, I am confident, will 
continue to grow. This building could be financed jointly by state and 
private funds. I may have more to say on this matter later in the Session. 

Carrying forward this general interest in the arts, I last year appointed 
a group of outstanding citizens to serve as a North Carolina Arts Council. 
It is conducting a thorough and complete survey of all cultural resources in 
the State. North Carolina has need for such a clearing house of informa- 
tion and service for all the arts. I recommend that the North Carolina Arts 
Council be made a statutory committee to serve this purpose. 

Since moving to Raleigh, Mrs. Moore and I have come to love the Execu- 
tive Mansion on Blount Street. It does, of course, belong to the people of 
North Carolina, and, as such, it should be preserved and maintained in 
the finest traditions of our State. With this in mind, my wife early called 
a group of interested citizens together, and, on the basis of the group's 
recommendation, I appointed an Executive Mansion Fine Arts Committee. 
This committee, assisted by the Department of Archives and History, has 
made an inventory of the furnishings there, completed a new history of the 
building, and has solicited more than $57,000 in private gifts for the 
enrichment of the Mansion. In order to carry forward this work, I recom- 
mend the creation of a permanent Executive Mansion Fine Arts Committee. 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS 

Tremendous progress is being made in physical and mental health 
services to the people of North Carolina. We must now take advantage of 
the many additional opportunities available to improve health care for our 
citizens. However, we must plan wisely the utilization of the funds we 
have and avoid unnecessary duplication. Greater coordination among 
various state agencies in this area is essential. 

With these facts in mind. I recommend an increase of 22.3 per cent in 
general fund appropriations for health and hospitals. These appropriations 
will assist greater numbers of North Carolinians through programs of the 
State Board of Health, the Medical Care Commission, the Department of 
Mental Health, the four tuberculosis sanatoriums, and the North Carolina 
Memorial Hospital and Psychiatric Center. 

Special attention must be given to the care and treatment of our mentally 
ill and retarded. Community mental health centers have proved their value 
and I recommend a substantial increase in grants for use in this area. At 
our institutions, needs are for personnel and service. I recommend funds 
for enough personnel to permit a 2.1 to 1 patient-employee ratio. I also 
recommend increases for medical care and treatment. 

Sites for the three alcoholic rehabilitation centers authorized by the 1965 
General Assembly have been selected at Greenville, Asheville, and Butner. 
Plans for the center at Butner are near completion. In view of needs in 
this area, I recommend that the five cents per bottle fee on alcoholic bev- 



36 HOUSE JOURNAL LSession 

erages authorized by the last Legislature be continued. I also recommend 
that sufficient funds, available because of this income, be used for 
research in the field of alcoholism and the treatment of alcoholics. 

The enactment of the Medicare Program has required complete review 
of health services provided or purchased by state agencies and institutions. 
Title XVIII, which provides hospitalization and certain other services for 
citizens sixty-five years or older, has been implemented smoothly by the 
State Board of Health. About 97 per cent of the state's general hospital 
beds have been certified for medicare participation. 

There is an obvious need for all state agencies concerned to establish a 
uniform schedule for medical fees and payments to hospitals. On the basis 
of a careful study, I recommend a uniform fee schedule be established and 
the necessary funds be appropriated. In addition, to assist the work of our 
local health departments in their many programs, I recommend an appro- 
priation of $800,000 for additional payments to the counties. 

Careful consideration has been given to Title XIX of Medicare. This 
program is not limited to those age 65 or over, but embraces practically all 
persons identified as 'medically indigent'. To participate in Title XIX, 
North Carolina must initiate its program by July 1, 1970. Based on my 
studies thus far, I feel that we need additional time to understand precisely 
what will be required in new programs, new costs and new coverages. 
Therefore, I recommend that no action be taken on the implementation of 
Title XIX at this time. 

However, I do plan to name a statewide committee to begin comprehensive 
health planning for the State of North Carolina. This committee will have 
representatives of all the major health disciplines and areas of service, as 
well as the users of health and medical care. 



PUBLIC WELFARE 

We are constantly seeking improvement of state services in meeting 
human need. For this reason I am pleased with the efforts of the Board and 
Department of Public Welfare under its new and vigorous leadership. It 
has increased operational efficiency of the Department and improved 
services to recipients of Welfare Funds. Improved administration now 
guarantees that the assistance checks are mailed regularly on the first day 
of every month. 

To meet needs in the area of Public Welfare, I recommend appropriations 
to provide for the continuation of trends projected in case loads and in 
average grants to recipients of old age assistance, and to dependent children 
and aid to permanently and totally disabled. I also recommend funds to 
provide more medical assistance to Welfare recipients and to reduce 
administratve workloads. My recommendations represent a 26 per- cent 
increase in state funds for the department. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 37 

THE BLIND AND THE DEAF 

State services to the blind must be continued and strengthened. I 
reccmmend funds for additional administrative and rehabilitation per- 
sonnel, for reduction in caseloads and increases in the average grants to 
blind recipients, and for meeting increased costs of medical services. 

Trustees of the State Blind and Deaf Schools have studied the future 
of the institutions. They offered a joint proposal to concentrate all deaf 
students at the schools for the deaf. The Governor Morehead School would 
be used only for the blind. The proposal was completed after the recom- 
mended budget had been prepared. I believe, however, that the suggestion 
has merit and I recommend you give it your careful consideration. 

CORRECTIONAL AGENCIES 

The State must preserve and advance the progress made by the Board 
of Juvenile Correction, the Probation Commission, the Prison Department, 
and the Board of Paroles. All of these agencies are engaged in activities 
which have as their common aim the punishment and correction of court 
identified offenders and their successful rehabilitation as law-abiding mem- 
bers of free society. This fact calls for close coordination of their 
correctional services. 

This administration has encouraged the state's correctional agencies to 
work together in developing a common philosophy and consistent practices. 
Probation, prisons, and paroles are now administered from one head- 
quarters building. They are sharing basic services. These developments 
promoted more effective use of statistics, research, and evaluation to guide 
the efforts being made to make correctional services more responsive to 
the needs of offenders and the safety of society. I recommend funds to 
provide for further improvements in these agencies. 



PUBLIC REGULATORY AGENCIES 

I commend to you the work being done by the Department of Agricul- 
ture, the State Utilities Commission, the Industrial Commission, the Depart- 
ment of Insurance, the Department of Labor, the State Board of Alcoholic 
Control, the National Guard, and the Civil Defense Agency. I recommend 
appropriations for continuation and strengthening of the services of these 
agencies. 

The reorganization of the State ABC Board approved by the 1965 
General Assembly has resulted in a more effective administration of our 
ABC system. The work of the agency, however, has become more difficult 
as a result of the North Carolina Supreme Court's decision in the so-called 
'brown-bagging' case. 

I urge the General Assembly to give prompt and careful consideration 
to this matter. I recommend that the principle of control, which is the 
basis of our ABC system, be retained in any decision affecting the sale 
of alcoholic beverages. Since the sale of alcohol by the drink would violate 
that principle, I am opposed to it. However, if the principle of control can 



38 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

be retained and if the so-called 'brown-bag' custom, which has developed 
over the years, can be legalized, I recommend this be done. 

HUMAN RELATIONS 

North Carolina is making continued progress in human relations. The 
calm and spirit of cooperation so necessary for continued development of 
our resources has prevailed. Oportunities of equal employment are 
improving in state government and in private business. The North Carolina 
Good Neighbor Council has continued its broad service to the State and 
has proven its ability to provide constructive leadership in this area. 

In spite of our progress, there remains much work to be done in the 
area of human relations. While all North Carolinians have responsibilities 
in this area, the Good Neighbor Council must continue and strengthen its 
activities and assistance programs. In order to facilitate this, I recommend 
that the Good Neighbor Council be made a statutory agency. 

LAW AND ORDER 

The enforcement of law and the preservation of order are essential to 
North Carolina's progress and peace of mind. Because of its importance, 
I have devoted a great deal of my time to responsibilities in this area. I have 
formed and worked with a law and order committee of state officials with 
responsibilities in this area and of representatives of local law enforcement 
organizations. This committee has been a clearing house for information 
and has helped provide greater coordination of effort. In order to carry on 
this inceasingly important work, I recommend that the law and order 
committee be made a statutory body. 

The work of the committee has stimulated interest in a statewide 
coordinated program of law enforcement education. I strongly support this. 
At my request, Professor of Law Albert Coates, founder of the Institute 
of Government, and Edward Scheidt, former Commissioner of Motor 
Vehicles, as a consultant, are working on a coordinated program for the 
training of law enforcement officers at all levels which should be ready for 
consideration within the next several months. 

While I am proud of law enforcement throughout the State, I am con- 
cerned over incidents of bombings of residences and intimidation of citizens. 
Such activities cannot be tolerated if the law is to have meaning for all. 
We cannot allow any individual or group of individuals to terrorize and 
intimidate a citizen of our State. I recommend that the act of burning a 
cross or other symbol, without the permission of the owner of the property, 
be made a felony under state law. 

Certainly, there is no more dastardly crime than the bombing of an 
individual's home, be it a house or trailer, where he and his family may be 
sleeping. This is a despicable and cruel act which deserves the sternest pun- 
ishment. In some respects, it is worse than first degree burglary, which 
now is punishable by death. I recommend to this General Assembly that the 
act of bombing occupied property be made a felony punishable by not less 
than imprisonment for 10 years or more than imprisonment for life. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 39 

In order to aid in the arrest and conviction of those guilty of these 
and other felonies, I recommend changes in our present reward statute, 
which is completely out-of-date and of little value. State law now provides 
for the Governor to offer a reward of not over $400 for information leading 
to the arrest of an individual known to have committed a felony. I recom- 
mend this law be amended to authorize the Governor to offer a reward not 
to exceed $10,000, not only for the arrest of a person known to have com- 
mitted a felony, but also for information leading to the arrest and 
conviction of such person. 

THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE 

North Carolina can be very proud of the progress being made in 
improving and expediting the administration of justice. The State is 
indebted to the members of the Courts' Commission for their effective 
services. After twelve years of planning and development, new district 
courts are beginning to replace all coui'ts in the State below the Superior 
Court. This new system of uniform courts will provide better administration 
of justice while relieving counties and cities of the cost of operating local 
courts. 

I recommend that this General Assembly implement the establishment 
of the new appellate court authorized by vote of our people. If you take this 
action, we are prepared to proceed immediately to provide the necessary 
courtroom and offices in the state library building, the former home of the 
Supreme Court. 

NATURAL RESOURCES 

We must continue to protect and wisely utilize our abundant natural 
resources — land, water, air, forests, and wildlife. As our population con- 
tinues to grow, these resources will become even more precious. The 1965 
General Assembly authorized the Department of Water Resources to study 
needed legislation for improving water resources development and on 
ground-water conditions. The study is being completed and legislation will 
be prepared to provide for special needs in the State's different regions. I 
recommend your careful consideration of this study and of the legislation. 

Open pit mining of phosphate in the coastal plain region has great 
economic promise for the development of this area but unfortunately it has 
raised questions concerning its effect on ground-water supply. At the request 
of the Board of Water Resources, the Governor and Council of State made 
funds available to hire internationally recognized consultants to make an 
evaluation. The consultants, after lengthy study, concluded that, unless 
proper controls are initiated, open pit mining could adversely affect the 
quality and quantity of water available. The consultants are available to 
discuss their report at your convenience. I recommend that necessary steps 
be taken in this Session to prevent misuse of the ground-water supply. 
Proper legislation will be introduced later. 

For added efficiency, I recommend that the Board of Water Resources 
and the State Stream Sanitation Committee be consolidated as one new 



40 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

board. This new board would have general supervision of all matters per- 
taining to our water resources and pollution abatement. In addition, I 
recommend that this new board be assigned the responsibility for abating 
air pollution under a new air pollution control law. 

HIGHWAYS 

I am pleased to report that North Carolina is presently in the midst of 
the largest road building program in its history. More than 400 projects 
were let last year. This represented nearly 4,000 miles of resurfacing, 
paving, widening, and major reconstruction. The total contract value was 
$112.5 million, the largest for any single year in North Carolina history. 
This was accomplished in spite of a reduction in federal highway funds for 
the second half of the year. 

Excellent progress is being made in the implementation of the $300 
million road bond issue which was authorized by the 1965 General Assembly 
and approved by the people that fall. By the end of last year, over 169 
primary read projects, 1500 secondary road projects and 500 urban street 
improvement projects had been approved by the Highway Commission. 
Over $30 million of bond work was let to contract in 1966. All totaled, 
nearly $50 million of bond monies have been spent or obligated. 

I assure you that the wise utilization of bond monies will continue. 
Probable expenditures this year will exceed $60 million and 1968 will be 
the big year for the bond program as the major primary road projects will 
go under construction. If federal funds are made available, it is anticipated 
that total lettings for highway construction may reach $200 million in 1968. 

There remain many needed road improvements in all sections of North 
Carolina. The State Highway Commission, on the basis of an established 
system of priorities, is meeting these needs as rapidly a possible. North 
Carolina is fortunate to have bond funds and Appalachian Highway Funds 
to utilize in the face of the delay in apportionment of federal highway 
funds. We will continue to meet road needs as rapidly as wise planning and 
sound construction will allow. 

HIGHWAY SAFETY 

The 1965 General Assembly enacted one of the most comprehensive state 
highway safety programs in the nation. This program has been implemented 
and North Carolina has advanced the cause of traffic safety. Our efforts 
have been recognized throughout the country. Although the number of 
deaths on our highways continued to climb, the rate of increase slowed 
considerably. 

Measured by North Carolina's experience over the last seven years, we 
would have recorded 1,733 deaths in 1966. Had North Carolina matched the 
national percentage increase over the previous year, we would have reached 
a total of 1,782. Instead, because of our efforts which helped to bring about 
the lower rate of increase actually registered, North Carolina's total was 
1,709. In addition, for the first time in five years, there was in North Caro- 
lina an actual reduction in the number of fatalities per one hundred million 
miles traveled. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 41 

Because of our coordinated effort, North Carolina is making- progress 
in the war against death and destruction on the highways. The inspection 
program is a success. More troopers patrol our highways. Our young 
drivers are better trained. Diligence in licensing has removed many potent- 
ially dangerous drivers from the highways. Our roads are being made safer. 
The Traffic Safety Research Center is in operation. Reflectorized license tags 
are in use. A new court system has been launched. The Traffic Safety 
Authority has coordinated the new and improved safety programs designed 
by the departments and agencies involved with traffic safety. 

We are generally pleased with the initial success of our program. 
However, too many of our people are still dying on the highways and many 
others are maimed. Our task is becoming increasingly more difficult. The 
number of vehicles on our highways is now over 2.5 million. The number of 
drivers, particularly young drivers, is increasing. People are driving more. 
The Traffic Safety Authority and I have inventoried our safety programs 
and have assigned priorities to needed additions. 

I recommend 

— A strengthening of our inspection program. 

— Additional highway patrolmen. 

— A revision of licensing procedures to allow those mentally or physically 
incapable of safe operation of a vehicle to be more easily recognized. 

— Laws arranging for special testing and licensing of motorcycle opera- 
tors, safety equipment for the machine, and restrictions on number of 
passengers. 

— The means for identification and removal of the cause for the 
alarming increase in one-car fatal accidents and pedestrian fatalities. 

— Better preparation and equipment for driver education instructors. 

ELECTION LAWS 

There is a need for improvement in the Election Laws of North Carolina. 
This is evident from the report of the Election Laws Revision Commission. 
The Commission was authorized by the 1965 General Assembly. Three 
members were appointed by me, two were named by the Speaker of the 
House, and two were named by the Lieutenant Governor. Senator Oral 
Yates was chairman. I recommend your careful consideration of the 
report. 

In addition, the State Board of Elections has made several recom- 
mendations pertaining to the election laws. The Board urges the adoption 
of the loose-leaf registration system by all counties, the requiring of each 
voter to sign the poll book and the certification of all civilian return 
absentee ballot envelopes. I also recommend your approval of the 
suggestions of the Board of Elections. 

North Carolina is feeling the terrible impact of the war in Viet Nam, 
perhaps more than many of our sister states. Our sons and daughters have 



42 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

answered again our nation's call in its time of need. We pay tribute to the 
fallen and express our continuing appreciation and support for those whc 
defend the rights of free men everywhere. To help show our support, many 
North Carolina flags have been sent, upon request, to units in Viet Nam, 
and our Veterans' Commission is rendering every assistance possible to 
veterans and dependents. 

The war in Viet Nam is demonstrating again that young North Caro- 
linians are aware of their responsibilities as citizens and that they can 
meet those responsibilities in war as well as in peace. We are proud of all 
of them and have confidence in their abilities. I recommend that the people 
of North Carolina be given the opportunity of voting on a constitutional 
amendment which would permit the General Assembly to fix the age 
requirements for voting. 

GOVERNMENTAL COOPERATION 

I am personally encouraged at the intial results of our efforts to 
establish an equal partner relationship with the federal government. We 
have made state government more responsive to those federal programs 
that will benefit North Carolina and allow us a part in decision making. 
State agencies, particularly the State Planning Task Force, have 
cooperated with local governments in utilizing certain federal programs. 

With the help of members of the North Carolina Congressional Dele- 
gation, we have sought to make our positions on various matters known to 
officials of the administration in Washington. I look forward to a continued 
close working relationship with members of the delegation on matters of 
importance to North Carolina. 

This General Assembly, of course, is under court order to realign our 
congressional districts. I am sure you will act on this most important 
matter, as on all others, in the best interest of the people of North Carolina. 

STATE EMPLOYEES 

Much credit for the progress being made in North Carolina is due state 
employees. They are the ones who get the job done and done well. They 
deserve the appreciation of all the people of this State. Because of their 
service, I recommend General Fund and Highway Fund Appropriations to 
provide a five per cent salary increase for all full-time state employees 
subject to the Personnel Act. When added to the 10 per cent raises given 
state employees during this biennium, it will mean salary increases of 
15 per cent across the board in four years. This does not include salary 
increases resulting from adjustments, position reclassifications and salary 
increments. My recommended increases will also cover certain employees 
in other specialized categories. 

In view of the continued shortage of qualified physicians in our state 
mental hospitals, I recommend a 10 per cent salary increase for these posi- 
tions to be distributed at the discretion of the Department of Mental Health. 

There has been some confusion concerning what a state employee should, 
or should not, do in terms of participating in political activities. Of course, 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 43 

state employees have all the rights and obligations of citizenship provided 
in the Constitution and the Laws of North Carolina and in the Constitution 
and the Laws of the United States. There is, however, a need for 
clarification. 

For the protection and reassurance of all state employees, I recommend 
that you consider incorporating into the Personnel Act a clear statement 
of the individual right of the employee to participate in the political life 
of our state on his own time, while prohibiting any improper use of the 
time or influence of any employee or official to persuade or coerce political 
support or action. 

CONCLUSION 

State government in North Carolina is a complex operation. It requires 
coordination of numerous agencies and departments and cooperation with 
other governmental units. The State has under way many programs of 
service to the people and it is always seeking to improve and make itself 
more efficient. I have not attempted to summarize or even touch upon all of 
the important work of state government. But, ladies and gentlemen, I assure 
you all are necessary and important to the people of this State. 

As I have attempted to emphasize by pointing to particular areas 
today, tremendous progress has been made in the last two years. North 
Carolina has taken a giant step forward toward greatness in all areas. We 
must accelerate our pace in the coming biennium. By working together, I am 
convinced that this Legislature and this administration can carry forward 
programs and services of lasting value to the people of North Carolina. 

After all, what we seek is that which is good for the people. Our 
recommendations here and those which will be included in my Budget Mes- 
sage are based on thoughtful programs, all designed with this single 
purpose in mind: to provide the means for a better and more useful life 
for every man, woman and child in North Carolina. This is the goal of 
total development. With your help and continued Divine Guidance this 
better and more useful life can be put within the reach of all North 
Carolinians." 

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

THE BUDGET MESSAGE OF 

THE HONORABLE DAN MOORE 

GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA 

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

Tonight I transmit to you, the Members of the General Assembly, the 
State budget recommendations for the 1967-69 biennium. I assure you 
that I have not and will not make any recommendations unless I know 
funds are available to carry them out. 

You have on your desks the four budget documents. Volume I is the 
"A" Budget and contains requests and recommendations for operating 
funds to carry on established programs and activities at approximately the 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 51 

level of service now maintained. Volume II is the "B" Budget and con- 
tains requests and recommendations for appropriations to finance improve- 
ments or expansion in established programs or to establish new programs. 
Volume III is the Capital Improvement Budget and contains requests and 
recommendations for specific building projects. Volume IV is the Digest 
of the State Budget, along with informative statistical data, graphs and 
charts. 

These budget documents, along with the bills necessary to implement 
the budget, are the result of months of hard, unselfish and dedicated work 
by the Advisory Budget Commission. I have never known a more dedicated 
and industrious commission, and I commend them for a public service of 
the first magnitude. 

I would like for the members of the Advisory Budget Commission to 
stand and be recognized by this joint session. The Chairman was the 
Honorable Thomas J. White of Lenoir County, Chairman of the 1965 
Senate Appropriations Committee. The members were the Honorable W. 
Frank Forsyth of Cherokee County, Chairman of the 1965 Senate Finance 
Committee; the Honorable A. A. Zollicoffer, Jr., of Henderson, Chairman of 
the 1965 House Appropriations Committee; the Honorable C. E. Leatherman 
of Lincoln County, Chairman of the 1965 House Finance Committee; and 
my two appointees, the Honorable Joe C. Eagles, Jr., of Wilson, and the 
Honorable Edward M. O'Herron, Jr., of Charlotte. 

I have enjoyed working closely with this commission in its deliberations, 
including some of its travels across North Carolina to State colleges, 
hospitals, prisons and other institutions. I am happy to announce tonight 
that, because of their splendid service, I am reappointing Mr. Eagles and 
Mr. O'Herron to serve again as my appointees to the Advisory Budget 
Commission. 

I am pleased to recommend, with the unanimous approval of the Advisory 
Budget Commission, total appropriations of $2,706,462,341 for 1967-69 out 
of total available funds of $2,778,907,759 from all sources. Of this amount, 
$1,493,838,044 will be from the General Fund and $572,936,243 will be from 
the Highway Fund (including Federal Highway funds of $132,370,000). 
The total recommended budget is $418,861,736, or 18.3 per cent, greater 
than comparable expenditures for the current biennium. 

The recommended budget for 1967-69 is in keeping with North Carolina's 
tradition of progress with fiscal integrity. It is a balanced budget. It is 
constructive, realistic and forward-looking. If adopted by this General 
Assembly, the budget will provide the largest biennial appropriations ever 
made in this State. I am pleased to report that these record expenditures 
can be accomplished without any new taxes or any additional bonded 
indebtedness. 

All of this can be achieved because the State of North Carolina is in 
excellent fiscal condition. Revenues continue to exceed legislative estimates 
and there will be substantial reversions resulting from our efficient admin- 
istration which kept expenditures below appropriations. The General Fund 



52 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

will begin the next biennium with an estimated credit balance of 
$163,158,791. It is a great asset to our State and must be spent wisely. 

Following the adjournment of the 1965 General Assembly, one of my 
first actions was to call meetings of State department heads, community 
college presidents, and heads of our State-supported institutions of 
higher education. At these three meetings, we discussed ways and means of 
improving the administration of State Government. We stressed that the 
size, the scope and the diversity of State Government require that we 
utilize the best management and administrative skills available today. All 
agencies and institutions were urged to maintain careful budgeting, good 
planning, skilled employee relations, wise use of time and improved 
communications. 

It was pointed out that dollars alone cannot define objectives and realistic 
goals. Dollars are primarily tools to be used wisely and productively. They 
may be described as input. Results are output — and this is what really 
counts. The follow-up by State agencies and the Department of Adminis- 
tration has paid off. In my opinion, these efforts have contributed to the 
substantial General Fund credit balance which now exists. In turn, this has 
helped make possible my recommended tax relief proposal to be outlined 
in this message. 



THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM 

We recommend a total of $784,335,354 (including retirement, social 
security and debt service) in General Fund appropriations for the public 
school system during the next biennium. This is an increase of $130,494,390, 
or 19.96 per cent over comparable expenditures for 1965-67. This is the 
largest appropriation of General Fund tax dollars for the public schools 
ever presented to a General Assembly of North Carolina. It will meet the 
major needs of our public schools. 

In my Legislative Message, I outlined my major program recommenda- 
tions for the public school system. Here are the appropriations required to 
effect these recommendations: 

1. Salary increases for public school teachers and teachers of vocational 
education — $63,754,565. 

2. Salary increases for principals, superintendents, assistant superin- 
tendents, supervisors, and other public school personnel — $6,291,826. 

3. Elimination of present $5 text book fee required for high school 
students — $3,283,495. Combined with the action of the 1965 General 
Assembly, this will provide North Carolina with completely free text books 
for all public school students. 

4. More and better text books for elementary students — $2,800,000. 

5. Research funds for the Board of Education so that a thorough study 
can be made on the feasibility of public kindergartens — $400,000. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 53 

6. Funds for educational research, development and experimentation, 
including the continuation of the Governor's School and the Comprehensive 
School Improvement Project — $2,081,891. 

7. Additional teacher scholarship loans for needy and worthy students 
desiring to become public school teachers — $157,500. 

8. Increase in rate of pay for substitute teachers from $10 to $15 per 
day — $796,201. 

9. Additional funds for vocational rehabilitation services — $305,179. 

10. The addition by 1968-69 of 130 special education teachers — 
$1,048,402. 

11. If the Board of Education approves the continuation of the Advance- 
ment School, the School and such funds provided should be under the 
direct control of the Board. 

COMMUNITY COLLEGES 

To provide continued support for our community colleges, we recommend 
a total of $45,733,618 for the next biennium. This will provide an increase of 
$16,752,563, or 57.8 per cent, over comparable expenditures for 1965-67. Of 
this total, $4.9 million is recommended to provide for the conversion of 
Wayne Technical Institute to a community college, the establishment of 
four new branch units, and salary increases for teaching and non- 
instructional personnel. It will also provide $200,000 for increased activity 
in new industry training programs. 

HIGHER EDUCATION 

For our institutions of higher education, we recommend a total appro- 
priation of $150,822,450 for the 1967-69 biennium. This represents an 
increase of $42,701,366, or 39.5 per cent, above comparable expenditures 
for the current biennium. Of this amount, $10.7 million is recommended for 
salary increases to academic and other personnel exempt from the Personnel 
Act. 

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS 

The State is fortunate to have such a large credit balance, representing 
tax collections over and above estimates, and the savings resulting from 
keeping expenditures below appropriations. It is our considered opinion 
that the General Assembly should follow the sound business practice of 
putting most of the credit balance into permanent assets. For this reason, 
we recommend to this General Assembly that $110,904,653, or 68 per cent, 
of the estimated General Fund credit balance be used for capital improve- 
ments during the 1967-69 biennium. This represents a General Fund 
increase of $51,283,075, or 86 per cent, over the total General Fund and 
legislative bond appropriations of the 1965 General Assembly. 

This appropriation, plus available Federal funds and self-liquidating 
projects, would make available a total of $179,719,877, the largest capital 



54 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

improvement authorization ever made by the General Assembly of North 
Carolina. This is all the more remarkable in that this can be done without 
a bond issue. 

As another indication of our continued interest and emphasis on higher 
education, we recommend that $6G, 117,900, or 59.6 per cent of the General 
Fund appropriations for capital improvements be allocated to higher educa- 
tion. The remainder of the appropriations would be distributed to other 
education activities, health and hospitals, natural resources and recreation, 
etc. 

This recommended program is of such proportions that it will tax the 
majority of these institutions and agencies to carry them out within the 
next two years. This is evidenced by the fact that the General Assembly 
authorized $130.7 million for capital improvements, of which $9.6 million, 
or 7.4 per cent, is not now under contract. The 1965 General Assembly 
appropriated and authorized expenditures for a grand total of $154.6 
million, of which $113.5 million, or 74 per cent, is not now under contract. 

During the past two years, we have worked hard to find ways and means 
of accelerating the planning and construction of authorized capital 
improvements. We have urged state institutions and agencies to plan 
capital improvement projects well in advance so that plans and specifica- 
tions for the most urgent projects could be actually prepared prior to 
consideration by the General Assembly. 

Under our present system for construction, capital building programs 
at our institutions frequently become the responsibility of administrators 
who are specialists in education, medicine, agriculture, and other fields who 
are unfamiliar with the complex administration of major construction 
programs. Many states utilize a State Building Authority, composed of 
persons knowledgeable in all phases of construction, to administer capital 
improvement programs authorized by the General Assembly. I believe this 
approach has merit and can save the state considerable time and money 
in the future. 

As a means of testing" this approach, I recommend to this General 
Assembly that it provide a State Building Authority, to be appointed by 
the Governor, which will oversee all capital improvement construction for 
central state government here in Raleigh. The performance of this authority 
could then be thoroughly tested, and if found valuable, could be broadened 
by a future General Assembly to handle all capital improvement construc- 
tion for the State of North Carolina. 

It would be well to note that the State of North Carolina still has 
remaining $44,872,436 unallotted as of this date from the $100 million 
bond issue approved in 1963 for State aid to public school construction. 

SALARY INCREASES AND ADJUSTMENTS 

Our recommended budget provides for salary increases to almost every 
class of permanent full-time employees in state government, from 5 per cent 
beginning 1967-68 for some, to over 17.5 per cent by the second year of the 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 55 

biennium for others. These recommendations also include salary increases 
for Supreme Court Justices and Superior Court Judges, contingent upon 
the necessary statutory changes. I also recommend that an appropriate 
salary increase be provided for all members of the Council of State and 
the Attorney General. 

The total amount recommended for salary increases from the General 
Fund is $97,430,775, and from the Highway Fund, $6,948,605. 

In addition to appropriations for salary increases, we also recommend 
General Fund appropriations of $1 million for the biennium to serve as a 
salary adjustment fund. If approved, these funds will be administered by 
me as Director of the Budget. Experience has shown that state government 
definitely needs such a fund. It is needed when salary reserve funds in 
operating budgets are insufficient to support approved salary adjustments 
resulting from range revisions, reclassifications, or unexpected changes in 
the labor market. As North Carolina's largest employer, state government 
must have sufficient flexibility to meet the many difficulties now arising in 
the recruiting - and holding of qualified employees. 

I am informed that the Trustees of our Teachers' and State Employees' 
Retirement System will recommend to the General Assembly some liberali- 
zation of benefits. I commend these recommendations to you. They, I under- 
stand, can be put into effect without any additional tax money due to an 
increase in a return on investments. 



HEALTH AND HOSPITALS 

For the 1967-69 biennium, we recommend General Fund appropriations 
for health and hospitals totalling $121,195,612. This represents an increase 
of $21,772,892, or 22 per cent, over comparable expenditures for the current 
biennium. 

We recommend for our mental hospitals and training schools General 
Fund appropriations of $84,856,902, an increase of $15,779,878, or 22.8 per 
cent, over the comparable expenditures for 1965-67. Of this amount, we 
recommend an appropriation of $4.5 million, an increase of $2.3 million, 
for grants to community mental health centers. In view of the continued 
need for improved medical care and treatment, we recommend a 10 per 
cent salary increase for physicians in our State mental hospitals (to be 
distributed at the discretion of the Department of Mental Health), and also 
have included other mental hospital employees exempt from the Personnel 
Act in our salary increase recommendations. Without an adequate number 
of well-trained personnel, hospitalization is unduly prolonged, recovery rates 
are lower and costs rise. 

The State Board of Health would receive $13,341,643 during the biennium, 
an increase of $3.7 million, or 38.2 per cent, over comparable expenditures 
for the current biennium. In addition to the State General Fund appro- 
priation, the Board of Health is expected to receive Federal funds during 
the biennium in the amount of $11.3 million, and other miscellaneous 
receipts which will provide a total biennial budget of $25,342,396. Major 



56 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

increases include an amount of $1.8 million to implement a uniform fee 
schedule for medical fees and payments to hospitals, as well as $800,000 
beyond present support to be paid to the counties for strengthening local 
health programs. 

Other recommended appropriations are: State sanatorium system, $11.3 
million; North Carolina Memorial Hospital, $7.3 million; North Carolina 
Psychiatric Center, $1.8 million; Orthopedic Hospital, $1.4 million; Cerebral 
Palsy Hospital, $571,065; Medical Care Commission, $359,528; Asheville 
Orthopedic Hospital, $180,000; Council on Mental Retardation, $100,950; 
and North Carolina Cancer Institute, $52,000. 



PUBLIC WELFARE 

To fund the necessary protective, preventive and rehabilitative services 
provided by the Department of Public Welfare, we recommend a total 
budget of $260,322,046, made up of state appropriations of $39,273,919, 
Federal matching of $179,452,917 and local funds of $41,595,210. The recom- 
mended state appropriation provides for an increase of $8,149,675, or 26.2 
per cent over comparable expenditures in 1965-67. 

These increases will provide for continuation of recent trends in both 
caseloads and giants of the various public assistance programs, expansion 
in state personnel and related costs made necessary by increased workloads, 
and payments to physicians for services rendered public welfare recipients. 
These funds will increase maximum payments to recipients residing in 
nursing homes and homes for the aged, and increase payments to hospitals 
to 90 per cent of reimbursable costs. 

We have not forgotten our blind and other handicapped children and 
adults in this recommended budget. The State Commission for the Blind 
would receive $15,696,927 (including Federal and other funds), an increase 
in appropriations of $904,191, or 30.3 per cent over comparable expenditures 
in 1965-67. We are recommending substantial budget increases for the 
Governor Morehead School, which provides instruction for our blind and 
visually handicapped youngsters, as well as for our two schools for the 
deaf in Morganton and Wilson. In addition, we recommend continuation 
of present levels of activity for the Veterans Commission, Confederate 
Women's Home and state grants-in-aid to child-caring institutions. 



CORRECTIONAL AGENCIES 

We recommend appropriations of $44,015,502 for the Board of Juvenile 
Correction, the State Prison Department, the Probation Commission and 
the Board of Paroles. This represents an increase of $6,075,868, or 16 
per cent, over the comparable expenditures for 1965-67. In addition, our 
Capital Improvements Budget includes a recommendation for a $4.2 million 
medium security prison and $2,801,800 for new construction for the Board 
of Juvenile Correction. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 57 

REGULATORY STATE AGENCIES 

We recommend total General Fund expenditures of $9,736,955 for these 
agencies, which include the Utilities Commission, Industrial Commission, 
Insurance Department, Department of Labor, State Board of Alcoholic 
Control and several others. This is an increase of $1,067,850, or 12.3 per 
cent, over the current biennium. 

NATURAL RESOURCES AND RECREATION 

We recommend appropriations of $13,364,501 for these agencies — the 
Department of Conservation and Development, Department of Water 
Resources, Recreation Commission and similar agencies and programs sup- 
ported by the General Fund. This is an increase of $1,970,829, or 17.3 per 
cent, over comparable expenditures for the current biennium. 

The recommended appropriation of $10,847,551 for the Department of 
Conservation and Development will provide an urgently needed increase 
of $1,573,936 over comparable current expenditures. This Department bears 
a heavy responsibility in carrying out many vital state programs in natural 
resources, industrial development, and other important activities. These 
funds will provide for the personnel and operating costs for four new travel 
welcome centers to be located at major gateways leading into North Caro- 
lina. Our Capital Improvements Budget recommends $255,000 for the 
construction of these new facilities. They will benefit tremendously our 
entire travel industry which accounts for a major share of our State's 
annual income. 

The recommended funds will also provide additional personnel and 
operating costs in forest fire control, continuation of special research 
projects in Commercial and Sports Fisheries, expand our State's advertising 
program, and provide additional funds for the printing of new industrial 
brochures in the Division of Commerce and Industry. 

AGRICULTURE 

We must never forget the tremendous importance of agriculture in the 
State's economy. Over 50 per cent of the total labor force in North Carolina 
is employed in businesses directly associated with agricultural commodities. 
The value of gross sales of farm products increased from $770 million in 
1954 to around $1.5 billion in 1965. This shows clearly that agriculture is, 
in fact, a growth industry. 

Within the past few years, agriculture has shaken off the burden of 
surplus stocks in government storage and the future demand situation is 
extremely bright. This strong demand picture is associated with the rapid 
growth in population at the world, national and state levels. We expect to 
supply our share of this expanding demand. To achieve this goal, however, 
we must become more competitive in the production, processing and market- 
ing of some of our basic commodities. 

Probably the biggest challenge facing North Carolina agriculture is the 
lag in mechanization relative to many other states. We must overcome this 



58 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

barrier in order to increase the efficiency of agricultural production and 
the productivity of our agricultural resources. 

We recommend General Fund appropriations of $24,034,712 for the State 
Department of Agriculture, the Agricultural Experiment Station, the 
Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service, and the State Soil and Water 
Conservation Committee. This represents an increase of $1,815,353, or 8.2 
per cent, over the current biennium. In addition, I recommend that the 
Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service personnel be given the same 
salary increases provided for academic and other personnel of the Agricul- 
tual Experiment Stations. 

This agriculture budget is designed to accelerate the rate of total agricul- 
tural development. We will give continued and increased support to our 
basic agricultural program involving research, education, regulation and 
service. I will continue to use the office of Governor to its maximum 
potential in moving our agriculture forward. 

HIGHWAYS 

The recommended 1967-69 appropriations of State, Federal aid and other 
funds to the State Highway Commission for current operations are 
$518,690,897 which is $32,163,531, or 6.6 per cent more than the estimated 
1965-67 expenditures. 

Highway construction and maintenance funds arising from state sources 
are applied first to matching Federal aid funds for Federal aid highway 
construction. Then they are used to provide maintenance of existing roads 
and highways, with the balance remaining to state construction. Highway 
maintenance costs are steadily increasing as roads age, new miles are 
paved, additional four-lane facilities are added, and labor and material costs 
rise. This leaves proportionately less money available for state construction. 

While we are concerned with the $12.8 million reduction in Federal funds 
available in 1967-69 for highway construction in North Carolina, we are 
accelerating construction expenditures in an effort to utilize fully available 
Federal aid. 



MOTOR VEHICLES AND HIGHWAY SAFETY 

The total recommended budget for the Department of Motor Vehicles is 
$46,063,397, an increase of $9,183,628, or 24.9 per cent, over the current 
biennium. The majority of this increase is from the Highway Fund, and 
will be used primarily for new personnel and related costs to provide for a 
substantial increase in Highway Patrol activities. It will also provide for 
the continued conversion of all motor vehicle registration records to 
electronic data processing. 

The increased budget will provide for an additional 125 patrolmen and 
their related expenses. We considered carefully the request by the Depart- 
ment of Motor Vehicles that the State provide a new class of state employees 
to serve civil processes and thereby relieve the Patrol of these growing 
duties. However, it was our considered judgment that it would be better for 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 59 

a uniformed patrolman to carry out these civil process duties, so we have 
increased the request for patrolmen by 25 so they may serve in lieu of 
civil process servers. 

There is an urgent need to provide periodic physical examinations to 
members of the Patrol. Our preliminary tests show that these examinations 
are beneficial to the Patrol and the troopers. We have requested sufficient 
funds to begin this new policy on a regular basis. 

I strongly recommend all of the budget requirements which will imple- 
ment and strengthen our comprehensive State highway safety program. 
Also, I recommend that the new refiectorized license tags be continued for 
the next biennium. They will help prevent rear-end collisions at night. As 
you recall, the 1965 General Assembly approved these new safety devices 
on a one-year trial basis. Because of the advance planning and production 
required to manufacture these plates, I hope that this session of the 
General Assembly will give early and favorable consideration to this 
recommendation. 



ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT 

As Americans, we occupy only 7 per cent of the world's land area and 
represent only 6 per cent of the world's population. However, we produce 33 
per cent of the world's goods and services. We utilize 35 per cent of 
the world's electrical energy. We drive 56 per cent of the world's passenger 
cars and 40 per cent of its commercial vehicles. We use 49 per cent of the 
world's telephones, 47 per cent of its radios and 41 per cent of its television 
sets. 

These facts dramatically emphasize the fantastic productivity of a free 
society and a free economy. We in North Carolina are doing our utmost to 
encourage economic development in every county and community in North 
Carolina. For example, in 1966 our State's industrial development reached 
new highs. Total investment was $613.5 million, up more than 27 per cent 
over 1965. These projects will add more than 37,000 jobs and $141 million 
to our payrolls. This progress would have been impossible without the excel- 
lent cooperation that does exist between labor and management. Both are to 
be commended for their contributions to the total development of North 
Carolina. 

The State Department of Tax Research estimates that State and local 
taxes expected to result from new and expanded industrial plants in 1965-66 
will amount to $35 million each year. Of this amount, corporations will pay 
$23.9 million in franchise, income and local property taxes. Individual 
employees will pay $11.1 million in income, sales and local property taxes. 

A recent study of employment changes during the 1960-65 period revealed 
that North Carolina's 10.2 per cent growth in civilian employment exceeded 
the national growth rate of 7.5 per cent. This rapid expansion of employ- 
ment created approximately 181,500 new jobs in this five-year period, 
61,000 more than if the State had experienced the same employment growth 
rate as did the entire United States. 



60 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

However, in spite of our remarkable growth and progress, many serious 
problems do remain. Competition in industrial development, for example, 
has brought up the problem of what North Carolina should do about tax- 
exempt industrial aid bonds. I have always been against granting exemp- 
tions to bonds of this character because I did not believe that the building 
of an industrial plant was for a public purpose. I still feel the same way, 
and yet realize that we are faced with the fact that as of today such an 
exemption is recognized as valid by the Internal Revenue Service, which 
holds that the interest on such bonds is exempt from Federal income tax. 

The Board of Conservation and Development, as well as others within 
and without government, contend that it is essential that North Carolina 
have some legislation sanctioning bonds of this type. They contend that 
our failure to be able to finance industry through industrial aid bonds has 
lost us many millions of dollars in new plants. 

Tax-exempt industrial aid bonds are now legal in thirty of our states, 
including Virginia. The Governor of South Carolina has recently announced 
that he will recommend to the South Carolina Legislature, which is now 
sitting, the enactment of legislation legalizing such bonds. 

Therefore, I am recommending that you consider legislation sanctioning 
the issuance of industrial aid bonds. I consider this purely a defensive 
measure with the hope that such bonds will be sparingly used. I recom- 
mend that if such a bill is passed, that the General Assembly create a State 
Authority which will have final approval as to the issuance of any bonds 
under this act. There should be safeguards to guarantee that only fiscally 
sound and well-established industries be approved, that there be provision 
for all property of the industrial facility to be subject to ad valorem taxes, 
and that the privilege of using such bonds be extended to our own estab- 
lished industries in connection with their expansions. Every bond issued 
under the terms of such legislation should declare on its face that it is 
not the obligation of the State of North Carolina or any of its subdivisions. 

I sincerely hope that a gradual easing of credit will make such bonds 
less attractive. Meanwhile, let us hope that the Internal Revenue Service 
will ultimately reverse its stand and declare all such bonds taxable, or 
that the Congress will take such action, thus removing this device as a 
competitive advantage for any state. 

Because of the tight money situation, the question has been raised by 
some of our responsible citizens that the interest rate ceiling of six per 
cent should be increased. The argument is that a great many sources of 
funds elect to lend their money in other states where they can secure a 
much higher return. It is also argued that many of our citizens are unable 
to get credit, particularly in the field of home buying and home building. 

Let me say that I continue to be opposed to increasing the six per cent 
interest rate. It is my hope that the tight money situation will ease and that 
this crisis in credit will pass. There are some indications that the 
severity of the problem is lessening. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 61 

However, in view of the serious economic effects of tight money, it is 
my recommendation that this General Assembly study the entire credit 
situation, and especially the extent to which our laws governing interest 
charges may tend to hamper the orderly growth of our State. If it 
should be found that an adjustment should be made in certain instances, 
such as home financing, the General Assembly should adopt appropriate 
amendments to alleviate the areas in which our people are being adversely 
affected. 

I would like to point out that in 1961 the General Assembly amended the 
law so as to allow corporate borrowers to pay up to 8 per cent for loans of 
$30,000 or more and extending for a period of at least five years. I point 
this out to show that cases of hardship can be handled by amendment, 
leaving the general rate at 6 per cent. 



URBAN AFFAIRS 

The national trend toward urban growth is certainly reflected in North 
Carolina. Many of our municipal governments are faced with unprecedented 
demands for expanding services and increasing costs of present services. 
Financial assistance to local governments was one of the major topics of 
discussion in the 1965 General Assembly. 

The Tax Study Commission, authorized by the 1965 General Assembly, 
together with the League of Municipalities and the Association of County 
Commissioners, sought a solution to this problem. They recommend that 
this General Assembly grant local governments the power to help them- 
selves by the addition of a local option one per cent sales tax. This tax 
would be collected by the Department of Revenue along with, and on the 
same sales, as the present statewide three per cent sales tax. There would 
be no extra cost of collections since the State Department of Revenue 
would simply rebate the one per cent to the county. 

They point out that the 'local option tax' is working well in other states. 
It provides substantial additional revenues for those localities where the 
need is severe. Their recommendation is that it be on a county-wide basis, 
with the proper division between the county and its municipalities. It 
would be in effect only in those counties which vote to come under it. Many 
major urban areas need additional permanent revenue rather than being 
forced to come to the Legislature every two years for temporary assistance. 
I support this recommendation of the Tax Study Commission, the League of 
Municipalities, and the Association of County Commissioners. 

Actually, the property tax burden in many of our counties and municipali- 
ties has not yet reached levels which demand relief. So no statewide increase 
is necessary. For example, the average per capita property tax in North 
Carolina is $50, as compared with the national average of $118. Our per 
capita property tax is less than one-half for the average of the United 
States. The State of North Carolina relies very heavily for revenue on the 
individual and corporate income taxes; in fact, North Carolina rates among 
the highest in the nation on reliance on the corporate income tax structure 
itself for revenues. 



62 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

While we recognize the needs of our urban areas, we must not forget 
that the State of North Carolina has for many years assumed the major 
burdens of taxation normally required by local governments in many other 
states. A partial listing of state aids, grants, services and expenditures to 
or for local governments by state government shows a grand total of over 
$1 billion a year. These state obligations include public schools, community 
colleges, highways, public welfare, programs for the handicapped, health 
hospital construction, mental health, water resources, agriculture, courts, 
public safety and regulation and many others. Since 1949, the State of 
North Carolina has financed $200 million in bonds for construction of public 
schools — a local responsibility. 

PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT 

Planning for the future of North Carolina is a major responsibility of 
state government in which we all share major roles. Planning is a con- 
tinuous process involving every region, every county and every community 
in our State. This administration has made every effort to stimulate, 
encourage and coordinate the sound planning required for orderly growth 
and development of our State. As a result of these efforts, there is tremen- 
dous activity at the regional, county and community levels across our State. 

The State Planning Task Force, a new division of the Department of 
Administration, is primarily responsible for the coordination of state, local, 
federal and private programs for developing our human, natural and 
financial resources. The Task Force has pioneered in the field of state- 
wide planning and development which becomes more essential each day. 

North Carolina is now divided into three major regions for total 
development. In Western North Carolina, the Appalachian Regional 
Development Program has advanced rapidly. More than $2.5 million have 
been allocated for new highways, schools, hospitals, airports, waste treat- 
ment facilities and permanent assets. To make most effective use of their 
resources, the counties have formed Local Development Districts as a means 
of coming directly to grips with their grass-roots problems. 

In Eastern North Carolina, approval has been received to establish the 
Coastal Plains Regional Commission for North Carolina, South Carolina 
and Georgia. This will be patterned somewhat after the successful 
Appalachian Regional Commission programs. 

The Governor's Advisory Committee of the Piedmont Crescent was 
established last year to coordinate governmental efforts to promote orderly 
growth in this industrial heartland of our State. More than 100 outstanding 
citizens agreed to serve on this Committee. Private funds were raised to 
supplement public funds to provide professional direction for the Piedmont 
Crescent's work. There is a professional planner working for the Committee. 
We look foward to the establishment of a Piedmont Crescent Regional 
Development Commission soon. 

As you know, the 1965 General Assembly authorized the Department of 
Conservation and Development to open five regional offices to bring the 
services of the Commerce and Industry Division closer to all the people of 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 63 

the state. These regional offices have completed data on sixty-five commun- 
ities on which no usable data was previously available. Personal contact has 
been made with 426 separate North Carolina manufacturing firms as a 
means of providing specific services to our existing industries. Regional 
representatives have been involved in the announcement of twelve new 
plants resulting from expansions of our existing industries. Working at 
the grass-roots level, developmental workshops have been conducted in 
each of the five regions. 

We must continue to press forward in the development of research, 
science and technology. The North Carolina Board of Science and Tech- 
nology, a state agency, completed its new building in the Research Triangle 
Park this year. To date, it has made grants to support research programs 
in colleges, universities and research institutions totalling over $1 million, 
which in turn attracted $5.9 million in grants from other sources. This 
represented a return of $5.95 for each dollar invested by the state. 

The Triangle Universities Computation Center, in which the University 
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University at 
Raleigh and Duke University participate as major partners, is located in 
the Board of Science and Technology Building. This giant computer also 
serves other public and private colleges across North Carolina. Computer 
science provides powerful management tools which must be better undei*- 
stood and better utilized by all levels of government. 



STATE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT 

The annual payroll for state government, including the public schools and 
the faculty of the Colleges and University, is well over half a billion 
dollars. State government is the largest employer in North Carolina. Ladies 
and Gentlemen, we are operating a big business, comparable to the largest 
corporate organizations operating in our State. 

Our State employees are as capable and as industrious as any group of 
employees in North Carolina. However, the value which the state will 
receive for the expenditure of this enormous annual payroll is largely 
dependent upon the leadership of those top administrators who direct their 
work. Definite steps must be taken to insure that the state can attract and 
keep top administrators and managers of sufficient ability to direct the 
expenditure of such vast amounts of manpower and money. 

I intend to appoint a 'blue ribbon' commission from top management 
in private business and industry to advise me on the adequacy of present 
salaries for major administrative positions in state government. 

Improved manpower development is imperative if state government is 
to compete successfully in the personnel marketplace. The State Personnel 
Act of 1965 provides for the development of a system of personnel adminis- 
tration for employees of the state based on accepted management prin- 
ciples and applying the best methods available in government and industry. 
The Personnel Board has made much progress in strengthening and improv- 
ing, with my approval, a positive and constructive program of personnel 
administration based on merit and performance. 



64 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

I recommend to this General Assembly that sufficient funds be made avail- 
able to the State Personnel Board to provide a management development 
and training program. This will enable the state to employ outstanding 
college graduates who have an interest in public administration, capacity 
for leadership, a willingness to accept responsibility, and an aptitude for 
administrative and organizational work. The program would involve on-the- 
job training, formal group training and additional studies. Such a program 
would permit the state to compete for the better college graduates on a 
more equal basis with the Federal Government and private industry. 

At my request, the State Personnel Board has made an extensive study 
of fringe benefits which are provided as a part of the compensation to state 
employees. It found that the cost of total benefits offered state employees is 
substantially equal to that offered by private industry. However, there is 
a marked difference in the kinds of benefits offered. For example, the state 
traditionally has given its benefits in terms of non-work time off, rather 
than benefits in the form of health and life insurance, improved retirement 
or other factors. It costs the state $1 million per day for each of the nine 
state holidays given to state employees each year. I have asked the 
State Personnel Board to continue its study to determine whether or not 
changes can be made which will make our non-work expenditures more 
beneficial to the employees and the state. 






FEDERAL-STATE RELATIONS 



We all recognize that Federal-State relationships have changed dras- 
tically in recent years, as the Federal Government has moved more and 
more into areas we formerly considered reserved to the states. Many people 
today feel that our Federal Government is becoming too powerful, and that 
it is usurping proper state authority. I understand this concern because we 
all realize the dangers involved in putting too much power in one central 
government. However, I do not believe that the important role of the states 
is diminishing, or that the effectiveness of state government is at a 
minimum. 

There are encouraging signs of change. In the Appalachia program, for 
example, the Federal Government has accepted state governments as full 
partners in the planning, as well as the operation, of this complex, multi- 
state program. To serve the needs of all our people, the states must be 
equal partners with the Federal Government. Too frequently in the past, 
the states have been the junior — or silent — partner. Too often the Federal 
Government has been the overbearing and dominant partner, using control 
of money to dictate all policy. Too often state government was placed in 
the role of attempting to react to Federal decisions made without our 
knowledge or participation. 

Full Federal-State partnership means equal participation and responsi- 
bility in the planning and development of each program. This means that 
our state governments and our local governments must also do their fair 
share in proving their competence in making equal partnership actually 
work. I am convinced that this can be done. I have every confidence in the 
ability of our great Federal system to survive and operate successfully in 



1967J HOUSE JOURNAL 65 

the months and years ahead. North Carolina during the past two years has 
pioneered in seeking more productive Federal-State relationships. Let us 
continue. 

TAX RELIEF 

North Carolina's tax structure is basically sound and fair. It maintains 
excellent balance between the cost of the programs and services which our 
citizens require, and the ability of our taxpayers to finance such programs 
and services. 

We collect approximately 75 per cent of all our revenues from three 
sources — income, sales and gasoline taxes. These three levies are each 
related directly to population growth and the actual taxpaying ability of our 
citizens. This gives us a stable tax structure with a broad and inherently 
sound base. 

Because of the stable tax structure, the economic growth of our state, and 
the efficient, economical operation of state government, we are in excellent 
financial condition. By contrast, during 1965 thirty-two states had to raise 
taxes to meet their basic needs. 

During my campaign for Governor, I said many times that if the General 
Fund continued to show a large surplus after the needs of the people had 
been met, then I would recommend some tax relief measures. I repeated 
this to the 1965 General Assembly. Later in the session, I pointed out that 
in view of the needs tax relief was not justified at that time. Now it is ! 

Our average taxpayer is heavily burdened and does deserve more con- 
sideration than he has received. We are all aware that the Federal Gov- 
ernment is considering a new tax increase at this time. Social Security 
payments also continue to rise. 

In view of our bright revenue outlook, I recommend to this General 
Assembly that our taxpayers be permitted to share in the state's increased 
economic growth by means of four tax relief measures. 

First. I recommend that the tax burden for parents with dependent 
children be eased by raising the dependency exemption from $300 to $600 
per year. 

Under the present law an average family composed of four persons, with 
an annual income of $4,000, is required to pay approximately $30 in North 
Carolina income tax. Under my recommendation, this taxpayer will save 
$18, a reduction of 60 per cent in his income tax bill. The average family of 
four with an income of $5,000 per year will pay $57 in income tax, whereas 
under the recommended plan it will pay $39, or a reduction of 32 per cent. 

A taxpayer earning $10,000 a year, after itemizing at least 10 per cent 
deductions, would pay $264 under the present plan and $230 under the 
recommended plan, a reduction of $34 or 13 per cent. The taxpayer in the 
$15,000 income bracket would receive only an 8 per cent reduction. Thus, 
you can see that the largest percentage benefit would go to the small tax- 
payers. In many cases, the small taxpayer would be totally exempt from 
paying any state tax. 



66 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

This increase in the dependency exemption would amount to a revenue 
loss of $16,500,000 during the next biennium. 

Second, I recommend tax relief to the parent who is financing the educa- 
tion of his children beyond the high school level. I propose that the state 
allow an additional $600 exemption for each dependent enrolled for full- 
time study in any institution of higher education. This additional depend- 
ency allowance would cover students attending colleges and universities 
within and without the State of North Carolina, as well as those students 
attending community colleges, technical institutes, business colleges, barber 
and beauty schools. This additional dependency allowance would amount to 
a revenue loss of $3,310,000 for the next biennium. 

Third, I recommend we ease the tax burden of each person who has 
reached the age of 65 years by allowing an additional exemption of $1,000. 
The life expectancy of our population continues to increase. This increase 
in the life span of the individual is accompanied by an increase in the cost 
of living. Since the generally accepted age for retirement is 65, and since 
the average retired person has income considerably below the levels during 
the years when he was employed, he needs some help. This tax relief will 
cost $3,140,000 for the next biennium. 

Fourth, I recommend that all service pay of enlisted men and $500 per 
month service pay of commissioned officers be exempted from state income 
tax while they are serving in a combat zone. This is the same exemption 
now allowed by the Federal Government. In my opinion, this should be 
done to give appropriate recognition to the service being rendered by our 
men and women in Viet Nam and other combat zones. The exemption will 
cost $350,000 during the next biennium. 

The total revenue loss resulting from my four recommendations would 
amount to $23,300,000 during the next biennium. This represents only 1.71 
per cent of total estimated General Fund revenues, or 0.86 per cent of total 
estimated income from all funds and sources. 

I recommend an effective date of January 1, 1968, on these income tax 
relief measures. This would permit the first tax relief to be reflected in 
pay checks received in January, 1968. 

Two of the four tax relief measures are definitely related to my con- 
tinuing interest in supporting education. The recommended increase in the 
dependency exemption, together with the proposed elimination of the $5 
high school book fee, will give parents more money to provide for the 
necessities of their school children. 

We all realize that it is becoming more difficult for parents to finance the 
education of their children beyond the high school level. In view of the 
rising costs, we should offer some measure of relief, as well as encourage- 
ment, to the parents who would like to provide further education for their 
children. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, let us remember that it is the taxpayer who pays 
all the bills for services in state, local and the federal governments. It 
has been the taxpayers' hard work, productivity and sacrifice that have 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 67 

made it possible for us to recommend this record biennial budget to you. 
Let us provide this well-deserved tax relief to the parents of school chil- 
dren, the parents with children in college or post-high school education, our 
young men and women defending our nation in Viet Nam and elsewhere, 
and our older citizens who are facing retirement. 

We can afford the revenue loss. We can give tax relief without reducing 
any vital services. As a matter of fact, we can give tax relief while appro- 
priating major increases for public schools, community colleges, higher 
education, health and welfare and other services. I urge you to adopt these 
recommendations. 



CONCLUSION 

This has been only a brief review of a massive, forward-looking and 
constructive biennial budget. I have attempted to give you the highlights, as 
I understand them, and to point out major opportunities for progress and 
growth. 

Along with all the citizens of North Carolina, I recognize that this 
budget, and my recommended program, are now in your good hands. I have 
every confidence in your ability and your judgment to carry out your 
responsibility during the coming months of this session. You will have my 
complete cooperation and assistance in your labors. 

Let me pledge to you — as I did to the 1965 General Assembly — that 
my administration will make every effort to see that your final appropria- 
tions are spent in accordance with legislative intent. We shall continue our 
efforts to give the people of North Carolina honest, efficient and economical 
government. Good government is a habit in North Carolina — and we expect 
to continue that habit. 

In my legislative message, I spoke of greatness. I have often said that, 
as a state, we were on the threshold of greatness. In a sense, that will 
always be true. The attainment of greatness has to do with striving for 
perfection. This of course, we will continue to do. In fact, we have already 
achieved a degree of greatness in many areas of the life of our people. 

While we have recommended for your consideration a record expenditure 
of tax funds, we should not be judged purely by reference to dollars and 
cents. It is equally important that we be measured by our concern for the 
welfare, health and happiness of our people in relation to our available 
resources. We must contribute not only our material substance but a full 
portion of our mind, heart and spirit. 

Our fiscal stability, our balanced budget, our efforts to conserve our 
resources, are not an end in themselves. They are, instead, a means to an 
end, and that end is a better life for our five million North Carolinians." 

On motion of Senator Moore the Joint Assembly dissolves. The Senate 
repairs to its Chambers and the House resumes consideration of its

SPECIAL MESSAGE ON HIGHER EDUCATION 

TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

BY THE HONORABLE DAN MOORE 

GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA 

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

'. . . Education shall forever be encouraged.' This principle stated in 
the Constitution of North Carolina has been the major guide for governors 
and legislators of this State for many years. There have been many 
changes in the economic structure of the State and in the outlook of our 
people since the Constitution was adopted in 1868. However, the provision 
to encourage education has remained foremost in the minds of those chosen 
to lead North Carolina. 

This principle has been the hallmark of my administration and of the 
Legislatures with which I have been privileged to serve. The 1965 General 
Assembly provided record programs for all levels of education. In my 
earlier messages this year, I recommended to you substantial additional 
increases in appropriation for the public schools, the community college 
system, and for higher education. I am hopeful that you will give favorable 
consideration to my recommendations. 

North Carolina is a developing State. We are enjoying greater pros- 
perity than ever before. Yet our per capita income is still low by national 
standards. I have proposed for your consideration a record of $2.7 billion 
budget to advance state services to the people. About 70 cents of every 
General Fund tax dollar will go for education. It must all be wisely spent 
where it will benefit the people of the entire state. 

Our needs in the area of higher education are many. Today there are 
112,000 young men and women in public and private colleges and universi- 
ties in North Carolina. By 1975 — just eight years away — we estimate 
that there will be 160,000 students enrolled in these institutions. At the 
present time, nearly 60 per cent of the students are in state-supported 
institutions. That figure is expected to increase to 66 per cent by 1975. The 
State, in order to fulfill its trust for the future, must provide adequately 
for these students. 



276 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

The years immediately ahead will bring' increasing responsibility to 
public and private institutions of higher learning. North Carolina is 
indebted for the excellent educational opportunities being offered our 
young people in private and church-related institutions. They are due much 
credit for the progress this state is enjoying. Their role and their responsi- 
bility will increase in the years ahead. 

Our dual system of higher education has worked well and the state 
must see that this relationship remains sound and mutually beneficial. I 
have asked the Board of Higher Education to include in its studies the 
role of the private colleges in North Carolina and to recommend ways in 
which the state might help to assure the continuance of strong private 
institutions in the future. 

The problem is not one of space alone. Education is of great importance 
to the young men and women of each new generation. They choose voca- 
tions carefully and they want and rightly expect the best possible training. 
To provide for them, North Carolina must have sound programs in the 
colleges and a strong university system. All institutions must have pride 
in the purpose they are serving and in what they are doing for our state. 

THE BOARD OF HIGHER EDUCATION 

In my Legislative Message last month, I said that higher education in 
North Carolina is at a crossroads. Today, I want to elaborate on that state- 
ment. I want to emphasize to you the importance of the planning being done 
by the North Carolina Board of Higher Education. While we follow our 
constitutional mandate to forever encourage education, we must do so by 
setting legitimate goals toward which the State of North Carolina can 
proceed in an orderly manner. 

The North Carolina Board of Higher Education is the agency which the 
General Assembly created and to which you assigned the responsibility to 
plan for the orderly development of state-supported higher education 
(General Statutes 116-154). The board, in cooperation with all state- 
supported colleges and the University, is presently conducting a major 
study of higher education in this state. This is a massive task which can- 
not be completed until August of 1968. The study will provide North 
Carolina with its first long-range plan for higher education. The work of 
the board in this area is not only worthwhile, it is crucial for the future 
of higher education in North Carolina. 

No major changes in our system of higher education should be made 
before this report is completed. The board has prepared, however, an 
interim report and recommendations concerning higher education in North 
Carolina for the information and consideration of this General Assembly. 
This report will be delivered to you today. My recommendations to you 
will be based, for the most part, on this interim report. I commend the 
report to you. 

Before commenting on the interim recommendations on higher education, 
I want to recognize and compliment the members of the Board of Higher 
Education for their dedicated and objective service to the people of this 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 277 

state. Their task is not an easy one. Each of the board members has 
worked long- hours to plan for the strengthening and improvement of our 
system of state-supported higher education. They all deserve our apprecia- 
tion. 

The membership of the board includes six representatives of public- 
institutions, selected on a rotation basis by the trustees of these institutions, 
a representative of the State Board of Education, and eight members-at- 
large. 

The members of the board are: Mrs. George D. Wilson of Fayetteville, a 
Trustee of the University of North Carolina; E. J. Whitmire of Franklin, a 
Trustee of Western Carolina College; James L. Whitfield of Raleigh, Vice 
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of East Carolina College; Senator 
Lindsay C. Warren of Goldsboro, member-at-large; John S. Stewart of Dur- 
ham, a Trustee of the Agricultural and Technical College; John A. Pritchett 
of Windsor, Vice-Chairman of the State Board of Education; Dr. Hubert 
M. Poteat, Jr. of Smithfield, member-at-large; J. Paul Lucas of Charlotte, 
member-at-large; J. P. Huskins of Statesville, member-at-large; W. C. 
Harris, Jr. of Raleigh, Trustee of the University of North Carolina; S. E. 
Duncan of Salisbury, member-at-large; Dr. Martin L. Brooks of Pembroke, 
a Trustee of Pembroke State College; Mrs. Harry P. Horton of Pittsboro, 
member-at-large and Secretary of the Board; Representative Gordon H. 
Greenwood of Black Mountain, member-at-large and Vice-Chairman of 
the Board; and Watts Hill, Jr. of Durham, member-at-large and Chairman 
of the Board. 

A major portion of the work of the board members and the staff in the 
last year has related to a long needed plan for higher education. All state- 
supported colleges and the University are now working on their own long- 
range plans for development. The Board of Higher Education has under 
way approximately 50 studies relating to all state-supported colleges and 
the Consolidated University. These studies are in the major categories of 
administrative structure, organization and control, educational opportunity 
and needs, financing higher education, faculty, students and enrollment, 
and facilities. 

These studies and the work being done at the institutions of higher 
learning will provide the necessary data to allow the State of North 
Carolina to plan an adequate system of higher education for the next 
decade. The plan, when it is completed next year, will be such that it can 
be readily updated every two years, as changing circumstances might 
require. 

INTERIM REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

The board's interim report is an indication of the scope and the value of 
its work. The interim recommendations, made by the board for your con- 
sideration, fall into four major categories: (1) tuition; (2) budget prep- 
aration and administration; (3) admissions and enrollment; and (4) the 
traditionally Negro colleges. The interim recommendations are designed to 
strengthen and better utilize existing programs. None would constitute a 
major change in our present system of higher education. 



278 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

The interim report gives considerable attention to the tuition charged in- 
state and out-of-state students at the various state-supported institutions. 
It points out that it is neither desirable nor necessary for North Carolina 
to subsidize out-of-state students to the present extent. It further concludes 
that in-state tuition at all institutions should be kept to the lowest possible 
minimum. 

The board makes these recommendations in this area: (1) that trustee 
boards of state-supported institutions raise annual tuition for out-of-state 
undergraduate students to $500 at the four-year colleges; $600 at the five- 
year colleges; and $700 at the University beginning with the 1968-69 
academic year; and (2) that trustee boards equalize annual tuition at all 
institutions for instate undergraduate students at $150 beginning with the 
1968-69 academic year. I concur in general with these recommendations. 

The increase in the tuition for undergraduate out-of-state students 
would add about $1.23 million to the income of the institutions. The 
equalizing of the tuition charges for in-state students would cost an 
estimated $720,000 annually. The result would be a net decrease in costs to 
the state of appi'oximately $510,000. Such action would reduce the tuition 
for 56 per cent of in-state students in public institutions while raising it 
for only four per cent. 

The preparation and administration of the budget as it relates to higher 
education is reviewed in the board's interim report. It points to the ques- 
tions raised in this area by the Commission on the Study of the Board 
of Trustees of the University of North Carolina and adds that similar 
qviestions have been raised about the budget by officials of senior colleges. 

The board recommends that the Governor, as director of the budget, 
order a re-examination of the process of budget preparation and adminis- 
tration as it relates to the institutions of higher education. It asks that 
representatives of the board and of the institutions be invited to participate 
in the study. I have today requested the Director of the Department of 
Administration to conduct such a re-examination. 

The board has given attention to the admissions standards at state- 
supported institutions. It notes in the report that unusually low admissions 
standards prevail in some institutions, particularly some of those tradi- 
tionally attended by Negro students. The board says that such low admis- 
sions standards may have been justified prior to the establishment of the 
community college system with its 'open admissions' policy. 

The report points out that the advent of the community college system 
'makes it possible' for any student to receive as little or as much post-high 
school education as his ability and motivation qualify him to complete. Any 
student in North Carolina today can continue his education beyond the 
high school, if he so desires. Therefore, the board concludes that there is 
no longer justification for unrealistically low admissions standards at any 
of the senior institutions of higher learning. 

The board recommends that this General Assembly authorize it to 
approve or to reject minimum admissions standards set by the state- 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 279 

supported institutions. I concur in this recommendation and agree with 
the board that this authority is essential if higher education in North 
Carolina is to be effectively co-ordinated and if standards are to be 
raised. 

In its interim report, the Board of Higher Education recognizes the 
special problems and needs of North Carolina's predominantly Negro 
colleges. The report points out that state-supported institutions in this 
category, as others throughout the South, are facing 'an extraordinarily 
difficult period of transition.' While striving to raise their general academic 
standards, these institutions are faced with providing for the immediate 
needs of students who are often inadequately prepared. 

The report states that admissions standards must be raised if these 
institutions are to improve the quality of their educational offerings. Three 
conditions, according to the study, are necessary. First, there must be a 
gradual raising of admissions standards. Second, students obviously unqua- 
lified to complete college level work must be directed to the college pre- 
paratory programs as well as the vocational and technical programs in the 
community college system. And, third, the predominantly Negro colleges 
need special financial assistance to make an orderly transition. 

The board recommends in this area: (1) that admissions standards at 
state-supported predominantly Negro institutions be raised to the equal of 
their white counterparts by 1972; (2) that this transition be carefully 
coordinated with the expansion of the community college system: and (3) 
that special financial assistance be provided by this and succeeding Gen- 
eral Assemblies for necessary strengthening of faculty, curricula and 
facilities at the predominantly Negro colleges. I concur in these general 
recommendations. 

The Board of Higher Education will submit soon a detailed report 
concerning the implementation of such a program. At that time, the board 
will request an appropriation of $2.9 million to provide immediate special 
financial assistance for our predominantly Negro colleges. These funds, if 
available, would be wisely spent and would benefit the educational pro- 
grams of these institutions and the entire state. This request, however, as 
other supplemental requests, must be considered in light of available 
revenue. 

NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGE LAW SCHOOL 

The budget I presented in my last visit with you provided for the 
discontinuance of the Law School at North Carolina College at the end of 
the first year of the coming biennium. I, of course, concurred in that 
decision. In light of its long-range planning program now under way, how- 
ever, I asked the Board of Higher Education to review that decision and 
to report to me its conclusions. 

The board replied that such action would constitute a major change in 
the state's system of higher education. It further informed me that it pres- 
ently has under way a study of legal education in North Carolina which 
will be completed next year. In view of these facts, I ask you now to 



280 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

restore the necessary funds ($85,000) to allow the Law School at North 
Carolina College to continue operation during the second year of the 
coming biennium. 



UNC TRUSTEE STUDY COMMISSION 

The 1965 General Assembly authorized a Commission to study the Board 
of Trustees of the University of North Carolina with respect to its num- 
ber, selection, terms of office and its interrelationship with the General 
Assembly and other agencies of the state. A commission of distinguished 
North Carolinians, chaired by former Governor Luther Hodges, was 
formed. The Commission held hearings and did considerable research. 

The result was a most comprehensive and meritorious report. Its 
recommendations are far-reaching, and, if adopted, they would constitute 
a major change in the state's system of higher education. Therefore, I 
reluctantly request that no action be taken in this area until the Board 
of Higher Education has completed its long-range planning program. I 
recommend that the report be referred without prejudice to the 1969 
General Assembly. 

As you know, this Session of the General Assembly has the responsibility 
to elect 25 members of the University of North Carolina Board of Trustees. 
I know that you will select the highest caliber of citizens to serve on 
this board. 



EAST CAROLINA COLLEGE 

In view of the importance and of the need for a long-range plan for 
higher education, I called the presidents and the chairmen of the boards 
of trustees of our institutions of higher learning, members of the Board of 
Higher Education, other state officials and members of the Advisory Budget 
Commission to the Mansion on May 12, 1966. At that meeting, we discussed 
ways of improving state-supported higher education, and I asked specifically 
for the active participation and cooperation of each institution in the long- 
range planning of the board. This was forthcoming. 

I said at that meeting: 'Major changes in our state system should be 
considered only in the broader context of a state-wide plan for higher 
education. Lacking such a plan in the past, we now should take the rela- 
tively short time required to permit the completion of this ten-year plan. I 
believe that the best interests of the state and higher education would be 
served by foregoing any request for a major change in the system of higher 
education during the coming biennium.' 

All of the state-supported institutions honored my request to participate 
in the long-range planning. The officials of East Carolina College, however, 
decided to move ahead with a project to make that institution an independ- 
ent university. The trustees requested the Board of Higher Education 'to 
study the desirability of elevating East Carolina College to independent 
university status.' 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 281 

This study was undertaken by the board. A committee of consultants 
was secured by the board to survey current programs and resources of 
East Carolina College. They visited East Carolina in December. The con- 
sultants concluded that the institution is 'not now prepared' to become 
a university. They recommended a strengthening- of its programs at the 
master's degree level and were most complimentary of the effective manner 
in which it is discharging its undergraduate teaching mission. 

Indeed, we are all proud of East Carolina College and the way in which 
it has carried out its statutory role in our system of higher education. 

The consultants further concluded that 'what is needed in the present 
situation is a good deal more planning for the development not only of 
East Carolina College, but of the entire system of higher education in the 
State of North Carolina than has been possible in the past.' The com- 
mittee of consultants took note of the fact that the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion has undertaken 'the studies necessary for such planning of the entire 
higher educational enterprise in the state.' 

The members of the Board of Higher Education, in view of the long- 
range study under way, its appraisal of the need for another university 
and financial implications, the consultants' report, and the existing laws 
relative to the one-university concept, unanimously recommended that no 
fundamental change be made in the structure of the system of higher 
education at this time. The report of the Board was delivered to members 
of the General Assembly two weeks ago. I concur in the report and 
commend it in its entirety to you for your careful consideration. 

The board's study was made in response to the direct request of the 
East Carolina College Board of Trustees. I am informed that the Board 
of Trustees of that institution has never, as a board, endorsed the legis- 
lation introduced in this General Assembly proposing independent uni- 
versity status. 

THE HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM 

Ladies and gentlemen of the General Assembly, the question here involves 
much more than a single institution. It concerns the entire state-supported 
system of higher education. Please make no mistake about the issues. In 
my judgement, if an independent university is created by this General 
Assembly, the structure of our system of higher education would be 
destroyed. The valuable one-university concept would be wrecked. The 
Board of Higher Education would be rendered ineffective and useless. 
Educational chaos and institutional politics would replace planned progress 
and a concerted effort to meet the needs of our people. 

What are North Carolina's needs for additional educational programs in 
medicine, engineering, law, dentistry, and other major professions? The 
Board of Higher Education is now seeking reliable answers to such ques- 
tions. In my opinion, it is simply sound business to have these answers 
before any basic changes are made in our system of higher education. 

The creation of an independent university is a far different matter from 
changing the name of an institution as was done by the 1965 General 



282 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

Assembly. That Legislature changed the name of one campus but it reaf- 
firmed the function and role of the Consolidated University of North 
Carolina. The establishment of an independent university would be a 
change in principle, a change in course, and a change which can lead only 
to duplication and confusion. It would affect not just one institution, but 
all state-supported institutions. It would affect not just a region, but the 
entire state. 

I urge you to give careful consideration to the work which has been 
and is being done by the Board of Higher Education. I cannot overempha- 
size the importance of the planning and coordinating work it is now 
doing. The 1955 General Assembly displayed remarkable insight in recog- 
nizing the growing demands in the area of higher education and in provid- 
ing an agency such as the board to plan on a state-wide basis. Later 
General Assemblies, particularly the 1965 Legislature, have improved its 
effectiveness. 

North Carolina has a fine system of higher education now, but is far from 
being adequate to meet the needs of our people in the years ahead. The 
Board of Higher Education is today working with our institutions to plan 
for the needs of our young people in the future. This board is helping to 
provide the state with a 'sound, vigorous, progressive, and coordinated 
system of higher education.' To alter the basic structure of the system 
would destroy what the board is accomplishing and would encourage every 
institution to bypass the board's present coordinating responsibility. 

THE ONE-UNIVERSITY CONCEPT 

I also urge you to continue to support the one-university concept which 
has served and which is today serving North Carolina so well. O. Max 
Gardner was a Governor of many accomplishments. His greatest, perhaps, 
was his wisdom and foresight in urging the 1931 General Assembly to 
consolidate three great institutions into one. It provided the means to 
economize and to strengthen academic programs by reducing unnecessary 
duplication. 

The wisdom of this action is evident. The institutions in the consolidation 
have been encouraged rather than hampered in their development. There 
is economy in their operation and there is no unnecessary duplication. The 
entire state is served by and has benefited from the consolidation. The 
people of North Carolina recognize these facts, as the academic world 
recognizes the gi-eat institutions that form the University. 

In looking back over his life years later, Governor Gardner remarked, 'I 
am convinced that if I had rendered any public service worthy to be 
remembered, it was in connection with the enactment of the statute creat- 
ing the greater University of North Carolina. Enough time has elapsed 
since the enactment of that legislation to convince me that the Consolidated 
University of North Carolina, through wise administration and sound 
leadership, has met the approval of our people and has resulted in great 
benefit to the institutions involved and to the cause of higher learning, and 
also to the service of humanity through future generations.' 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 283 

The most recent objective study of the benefits of consolidation was made 
by the Governor's Commission on Education Beyond the High School. The 
Commission, in its report filed in 1962, made many outstanding recom- 
mendations concerning the future of higher education. For instance, its 
recommendations resulted in the strengthening of college programs, the 
community college system, the University and the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion. I commend this report to you for study. 

The Commission on Education Beyond the High School was composed of 
26 dedicated and distinguished North Carolinians. 

It included these eight members of the North Carolina General Assembly; 
Representative Clifton Blue of Moore, Senator Lunsford Crew of Halifax, 
Representative Addison Hewlett, Jr. of New Hanover, Senator John R. 
Jordan, Jr. of Wake, Senator James G. Stikeleather, Jr. of Buncombe, 
Senator Thomas J. White of Lenoir, Representative Shelton Wicker of 
Lee, and Representative Thomas H. Woodard of Wilson. 

Three former members of the General Assembly served. They were 
Irving E. Carlyle of Winston-Salem who served as chairman; L. P. McLen- 
don of Greensboro; and Thomas J. Pearsall of Rocky Mount. Mr. McLendon 
served on the commission as Chairman of the Board of Higher Education. 
The Chairman of the State Board of Education, W. D. Herring of Rose 
Hill, was a member of the commission. 

Six college presidents were also included in the commission's membership: 
They were President Bonnie E. Cone of Charlotte College, President Lewis 
C. Dowdy of A & T College, President Alfonso Elder of North Carolina 
College, President William C. Friday of the University of North Carolina, 
President Deryl Hart of Duke University, and President Leo W. Jenkins of 
East Carolina College. 

This commission, ladies and gentlemen, in its study of higher education 
in North Carolina, very carefully reviewed the University and the merits of 
consolidation. It made these two observations less than five years ago 
about the Consolidated University and the future: 

'First, as a simple matter of economics, the state now and for the 
foreseeable future can afford only one university, and that one should be 
the best that intelligent leadership can build with the means available. 
Second, new campuses of the Consolidated University should be established 
only where there is a clear need for the types of programs (particularly 
in graduate and professional fields) that only a university should offer.' 

The laws of the State of North Carolina today provide, in General 
Statutes 116-2, that the University of North Carolina shall be the only 
university primarily dependent for its support on the state. The law further 
provides, in General Statutes 116-2.1, the procedures and standards for 
the establishment of an additional campus or campuses of the University 
of North Carolina. Charlotte College became a campus of the University 
by following the provisions of the law. Any of our senior colleges that elect 
to follow this procedure will receive careful consideration. This route is 
open to all. 



284 HOUSE JOURNAL [Session 

1 want to emphasize to each of you that from the standpoint of quality 
and distinguished education, and because of the many needs to be met in 
the field of higher education, North Carolina cannot afford more than one 
public university. The one-university concept has and is today demon- 
strating- its worth. It is continuing to benefit the people of the entire state. 
Any departure from this sound principle of successful higher education at 
this time would be disastrous and tragic for North Carolina. 

CONCLUSION 

. . 'Education shall forever be encouraged.' This constitutional instruc- 
tion has never been of greater significance. It is a mandate to us who today 
set the course for North Carolina's future. We seek the total development 
of our abundant resources as a means of providing a full and useful life 
for all our citizens. These things cannot be attained unless the best educa- 
tional opportunities are available and are utilized by our young people. 

North Carolina can reach its full potential in the years ahead only if we 
achieve a standard of excellence in our schools and colleges. We are 
moving today in that direction. Indeed, this General Assembly has available 
the resources to greatly improve public education at all levels. But, in 
many respects, North Carolina has a long way to go. We are still catching 
up. 

As I said to you in my Legislative Message, 'Higher education in North 
Carolina is today at a cross-roads. In one direction is the continued orderly 
development of our institutions, full utilization of our higher education 
resources, and attainment of defined goals by set standards. The other 
direction goes off into the unknown, leading perhaps to unwise duplication, 
unnecessary rivalry for limited appropriations, and a general weakening 
of our state-supported higher education system.' 

Yes, the months ahead are crucial for education, particularly higher 
education. We have many needs, and our present resources must continue to 
be utilized on the basis of well thought out plans. This is the reason the 
Board of Higher Education is at work now on long-range planning. This, 
too, is why I have asked you to authorize a 'blue ribbon' commission to 
study all aspects of the public school system. 

If we are to continue to encourage educational development, then we must 
join together in building upon the solid foundations of higher education 
already established. We must move toward realistic goals for the system. 
However, we should be cautious and know well where we are going. North 
Carolina can afford neither the money nor the time to proceed in a hap- 
hazard and uncoordinated manner. 

We must know how adequate state-supported higher educational oppor- 
tunities are. Then and only then, can our resources be used where they 
will do the most good for our young people. North Carolina cannot afford 
now — or at any time — to follow whims or to seek unnecessary goals 
where education is concerned. We must first know our destination. Then we 
must move steadfastly in one direction — the right direction. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 285 

Now, my friends, the final decisions rest with you. You know of our 
need for a long-range plan for higher education. You know of our 
resources and of the issues confronting us. I sincerely believe that the 
course I have suggested to you is the best for our institutions and for our 
state. 1 am confident that by your wisdom and your unselfish dedication to 
our state, you will see that North Carolina follows the proper course. Ths 
future of higher education in North Carolina is in your capable hands." 

After the Governor's address, on motion of Senator Moore, the Joint 
Assembly dissolves, the Senate repairs to its Chambers, and the House

"A HOUSE RESOLUTION WITH RESPECT TO THE PROTECTION 
AND PRESERVATION OF THE EDIBLE AND DELECTABLE WILD 
MOUNTAIN FOOD COMMODITY CALLED RAMP, AND THE AN- 
NUAL RAMP CONVENTION TO BE HELD IN HAYWOOD COUNTY 
SUNDAY. APRIL 23, 1967. 

WHEREAS, Western North Carolina and particularly Haywood County 
has for many years claimed to be the Ramp Capital of the world; and 

WHEREAS, opinions are being expressed that this delectable wild 
mountain vegetable is becoming extinct, contrary to views that in every 
spring there appears to be an over abundance of them; and 

WHEREAS, for many years there has existed a domestic corporation 
with its registered office in Haywood County, styled 'The North Caro- 
lina Society of the Friends of the Ramp, Inc.', the chief officer being- 
Secretary of State Thad Eure, which is interested in the protection and 
preservation of this humble food commodity; and 

WHEREAS, the Commissioner of Agriculture, Jim Graham, is alleged 
to have stated that there was an over production of Ramps last year and, 
upon being challenged, he has made a thorough investigation and now 
corrects, clarifies and alleges that his statement proclaimed that 'There 
was an ample supply of Ramps last year,' and now asserts that there is 
an ample supply this year. He has further asserted that even though a 
tremendous throng will devour untold bushels of Ramps in Haywood 
County at the Annual Ramp Convention on Sunday, April 23, 1967, such 
consumption will not contribute too greatly in bringing about the extinction 
that is feared: NOW THEREFORE, Be it resolved by the House of 
Representatives: 

Section 1. That the 1967 House of Representatives take no action with 
respect to the Ramp either in glorifying or condemning it, or with respect 
to any convention or celebration seeking to honor it, until after Sunday, 
April 23, 1967. 

Sec. 2. This Resolution shall be in full force and effect from, after and if 
it is adopted."

STATEMENT BY MEMBER 

"Mr. Speaker and Members of the House: 



I rise to oppose this S. B. 2 and ask this House not to concur in the 
Senate amendments to this so-called 'Brown Bagging' measure. Mr. 
Speaker, they say you cannot tell a book by its cover and that is certainly 
true in this case. 

Some time ago when the Senate sent us the same S. B. 2 it was the 
'wettest' bill I have ever seen. This House took the bill and made a 'dry' 
bill out of it. I voted for the House version because I was convinced that, 
instead of liberalizing our present liquor laws, it actually provided more 
controls and restrictions than has prevailed under the existing law. Now 
the Senate has changed that. In my opinion the Senate amendments now 
make this a 'wet' bill; they weaken the so-called control features of the 
bill and they will compound the confusion that now exists in trying to 
interpret and enforce our ABC laws. 



1967] HOUSE JOURNAL 389 

For these reasons, Mr. Speaker, I wish to be recorded in opposing this 
bill and urge my colleagues to do likewise. 

I si Earl W. Vaughn"
