SENATE JOURNAL 

SESSION 1967 

FIRST DAY 

Senate Chamber, 
Wednesday, February 8, 1967. 

In accordance with law, at the hour of 12m, the Senate of the General 
Assembly of North Carolina assembles this day in the Senate Chamber in 
the City of Raleigh. 

The Honorable Robert W. Scott, Lieutenant Governor, calls the Senate 
to order. 

The following prayer is offered by the Reverend Russell B. Fleming, 
Pastor of Western Boulevard Presbyterian Church, Raleigh, North Caro- 
lina: 

O Lord our God, we stand this day on the threshold of exciting and 
challenging days. Gathered in this Chamber are Public Servants called by 
You through the ballot boxes of this State to accept the sacred trust of 
Senator and Lieutenant Governor. 

We pause in this moment to acknowledge our need as tasks yet unknown 
loom on the horizon. There will be vested interest seeking self-satisfaction. 
There will be self-righteous guides attempting to manipulate men. And, 
there will be sincere honest concerns clothed in individuals yearning only 
that right triumph. Clamoring amidst the voices of men will be Your Voice 
asking to be heard. May these men know the indwelling of Your Spirit 
making them wise beyond the dreams of men, — making them courageous 
even to their own astonishment, — and, couching their every action in 
compassionate concern for each other and for all people. 

We offer a special prayer, O God, for the President of the Senate as he 
wields the gavel. May it always be with dispatch that he moves, but 
never at the expense of sound legislation. May he preside with courage but 
never blindly. Sit with him we ask, for there may be times when You will 
be his only Friend. 

As these fifty men and women today are organized into the corporate 
Body of the Senate may they serve well together, but never lose their per- 
sonal identity. May the courage of their personal convictions be their only 
guide for action. And, may your Presence be their constant companion. 

Wipe clean the slate of our lives that we may begin afresh in Your 
Service this day. 

In Christ's Name. Amen. 

The roll of the Senate is called and the following Senators-elect appear 
with the proper certificates of election and take and subscribe to the fol- 
lowing oath of office, which is administered by Associate Justice William 
H. Bobbitt of the North Carolina Supreme Court: 

"I solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution and laws of the 
United States, and I do solemnly and sincerely swear that I will be 
faithful and bear true allegiance to the State of North Carolina, and to 
the constitutional powers and authorities which are or may be established 
for the government thereof; and that I will endeavor to support, maintain, 



6 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

and defend the Constitution of said State, not inconsistent with the Con- 
stitution of the United States, to the best of my knowledge and ability; 
and I do solemnly and sincerely swear that I will faithfully discharge my

JOINT SESSION 

The Senate is received by the members of the House of Representatives 
standing, and the Joint Session is called to order by Lieutenant Governor 
Robert W. Scott. 

The President recognizes Senator Wood who presents His Excellency, 
Governor Dan K. Moore, who delivers the following address: 
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, and members of the General Assembly of 
North Carolina: 

The people of North Carolina have selected you as their representa- 
tives 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 Caro- 
lina is a land of opportunity for all. Two years ago, I stood here and ad- 
vocated programs designed to move North Carolina toward the total de- 
velopment 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 re- 
ceiving 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. 
Recreations, and cultural advantages are closer to all and are being utilized 
more fully. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 15 

— 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 to- 
day. 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 in- 
formation including my recommendations for capital improvements, tax 
relief, economic development, long range planning, improved management, 
and other matters. 

In the coming weeks and months, there 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, trans- 
portation, 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 fact 
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 re- 
sources 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 learn- 
ing. More than 70 percent of every general fund tax dollar will go into 
public education. 

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 percent of State tax dollars provided 



16 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

the public schools. Unlike most other States, the State of North Carolina — 
not local government — has undertaken the tremendous responsibility of ba- 
sic 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 gen- 
eral fund tax dollars ever presented to a General Assembly of North Caro- 
lina. 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 great- 
est 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 educational 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 in- 
crease 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 per- 
sonnel. These include 50 per cent, from $10 to $15 per day, for substitute 
teachers; five percent in 1967-68 and an additional five per cent the follow- 
ing year for principals; five per cent for superintendents, supervisors, cleri- 
cal 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 addi- 
tional 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). 

— 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 kinder- 
gartens. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 17 

In continuing our efforts to provide free textbooks, I recommend the 
elimination of the present $5 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 conducted for some time within the Department of Public Instruction. 

The Learning Institute of North Carolina has gained favorable recogni- 
tion for its pioneering efforts in educational innovation. Many of its ob- 
jectives, however, have been given to the new Regional Education Labora- 
tory for the Carolinas and Virginia. LINC was instrumental in setting up 
this new Federal funded, non-profit 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 Educa- 
tion. 

If the State Board of Education recommends continuation of the Ad- 
vancement 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 direc- 
tion and creative leadership I recommend that you authorize the appoint- 
ment of a "blue ribbon" commission to study all aspects of the public school 
system in North Carolina. This commission should review our school pol- 
icies, 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 indus- 
trial 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. 
Considerable progress has been made within the system during the present 
biennium. Its educational role will increase. In fact, during the next bi- 
ennium, it is estimated that present enrollment of 22,892 full-time-equiva- 
lent 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 rec- 
ommend that the existing institutions be strengthened and well established 
before any further expansion of the system is authorized. 

For Community College teaching personnel, I recommend salary increases 
of 8 per cent in 1967-68, and an additional four per cent in 1968-69. I also 



18 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

recommend a five per cent increase beginning fiscal 1967-68, for non-in- 
structional personnel. 

HIGHER EDUCATION 

Higher education in North Carolina is today at a crossroads. In one di- 
rection is the continued orderly development of our institutions, full utiliza- 
tion of our higher education resources, and attainment of defined goals by 
set standards. The other direction goes off into the unknown, leading per- 
haps 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 reorganiza- 
tion was made to enable the Board to provide affirmative and creative 
leadership for public higher education. Specific responsibility for formu- 
lating 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 Uni- 
versity, 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 
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 consolidation. 
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 Com- 
mission was chaired by former Governor Luther Hodges and was made 
up of outstanding North Carolina citizens. I will have additional comments 
on this report in a later message. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 19 

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 Educa- 
tion, including the School of the Arts. The distributions 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 disad- 
vantaged 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 As- 
sembly, 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 appropria- 
tion 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 appropri- 
ate funds for a theater building. Our North Carolina School of Arts is 
unique and has attracted international attention. 

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 Coun- 
cil. It is conducting a thorough and complete survey of all cultural re- 
sources in the State. North Carolina has need for such a clearing house of 
information and service for all the arts. I recommend that the North Caro- 
lina 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 



20 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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 rec- 
ommend the creation of a permanent Executive Mansion Fine Arts Com- 
mittee. 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS 

Tremendous progress is being made in physical and mental health ser- 
vices 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 var- 
ious 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 appropria- 
tions will assist greater numbers of North Carolinians through programs 
of the State Board of Health, the Medical Care Commission, the Depart- 
ment 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 men- 
tally 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- 
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 
appropriation of $800,000 for additional payments to the counties. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 21 

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 pre- 
cisely what will be required in new programs, new costs and new cover- 
ages. Therefore, I recommend that no action be taken on the implementa- 
tion of Title XIX at this time. 

However, I do plan to name a Statewide committee to begin Compre- 
hensive 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 appropria- 
tions to provide for the continuation of trends projected in case loads and 
in average grants to recipients of old age assistance, aid to dependent chil- 
dren and aid to permanently and totally disabled. I also recommend funds 
to provide more medical assistance to welfare recipients and to reduce ad- 
ministrative workloads. My recommendations represent a 26 per cent in- 
crease in State funds for the Department. 

THE BLIND AND THE DEAF 

State services to the blind must be continued and strengthened. I recom- 
mend funds for additional administrative and rehabilitation personnel, for 
reduction in caseloads and increases in the average grants to blind recipi- 
ents, 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 stu- 
dents 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 correc- 
tional services. 



22 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

This administration has encouraged the State's correctional agencies, to 
work together in developing a common philosophy and consistent prac- 
tices. 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 De- 
partment of Insurance, the Department of Labor, the State Board of Al- 
coholic Control, the National Guard and the Civil Defense Agency. I rec- 
ommend appropriations for continuation and strengthening of the services 
of these agencies. 

The reorganization of the State ABC Board approved by the 1965 Gen- 
eral 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 be retained and if the so-called "brown bag" custom, which has de- 
veloped 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. Opportunities of equal employment are im- 
proving 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 en- 
forcement organizations. This committee has been a clearing house for 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 23 

information and has helped provide greater coordination of effort. In order 
to carry on this increasingly 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 In- 
stitute 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 
punishment. 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. 

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 to 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 
committed a felony, but also for information leading to the arrest and con- 
viction of such person. 

THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE 

North Carolina can be very proud- of the progress being made in im- 
proving 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 begin- 
ning to replace all courts 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 neces- 
sary courtroom and offices in the State Library Building, the former home 
of the Supreme Court. 



24 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

NATURAL RESOURCES 

We must continue to protect and wisely utilize our abundant natural re- 
sources — land, water, air, forests, and wildlife. As our population continues 
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 pre- 
pared to provide for special needs in the State's different regions. I recom- 
mend 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 
Board. This new Board would have general supervision of all matters 
pertaining 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 road 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 an- 
ticipated that total lettings for highway construction may reach $200 
million in 1968. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 25 

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 as 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 continue 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 Carolina an actual reduction in the number of fatalities per one 
hundred million miles traveled. 

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 
potentially dangerous drivers from the highways. Our roads are being made 
safer. The Traffic Safety Research Center is in operation. Refiectorized 
licensed 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. How- 
ever, 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 alarm- 
ing 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 recommenda- 
tions 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 any of our sister states. 

Our sons and daughters have 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 who 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' Com- 
mission 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 re- 
quirements for voting. 

GOVERNMENTAL COOPERATION 

I am personally encouraged at the initial results of our efforts to estab- 
lish 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 Delega- 
tion, 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 in- 
creases resulting from adjustments, position reclassifications and salary in- 
crements. 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 
positions 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, 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 recom- 
mendations here and those which will be included in my Budget Message 
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.

JOINT SESSION 

The Senate is received by the members of the House of Representatives 
standing, and the Joint Session is called to order by Lieutenant Governor 
Robert W. Scott. 

The President recognizes Senator Morgan who presents his Excellency, 
Governor Dan K. Moore, who delivers the following address: 
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. 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 level of service now maintained. Volume II is the "B" 
Budget and contains requests and recommendations for appropriations 



32 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

to finance improvements or expansion in established programs or to estab- 
lish new programs. Volume III is the Capital Improvements Budget and 
contains requests and recommendations for specific building projects. 
Volume IV is the Digest of the State Budget, along with informative sta- 
tistical 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. Leather- 
man 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, hos- 
pitals, 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 Com- 
mission. 

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 As- 
sembly, 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 in- 
debtedness. 

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 
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 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 33 

college presidents, and heads of our State-supported institutions of higher 
education. At these three meetings, we discussed ways and means of im- 
proving 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 com- 
munications. 

It was pointed out that dollars alone cannot define objectives and realis- 
tic 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 
Administration 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 As- 
sembly, 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. 

6. Funds for educational research, development and experimentation, in- 
cluding 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 — $395,179. 



34 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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

11. If the Board of Education approved the continuation of the Ad- 
vancement 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-instruc- 
tional 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 appropri- 
ation 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 im- 
provements 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 
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 $66,117,900, or 59.6 per cent, of the General 
Fund appropriations for capital improvements be allocated to higher edu- 
cation. 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 1963 General Assem- 
bly authorized $130.7 million for capital improvements, of which $9.6 mil- 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 35 

lion, 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 mil- 
lion, 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 im- 
provements. We have urged State institutions and agencies to plan capital 
improvement projects well in advance so that plans and specifications 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 pro- 
grams. Many states utilize a State Building Authority, composed of per- 
sons 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 As- 
sembly 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 improve- 
ment construction for the State of North Carolina. 

It would be well to note that the State of North Carolina still has re- 
maining $44,872,436 unalloted 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 biennium for others. These recommendations also include salary 
increases for Supreme Court Justices and Superior Court Judges, con- 
tingent 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 



36 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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 in- 
crease 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 mil- 
lion, for grants to community mental health centers. In view of the con- 
tinued 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 bien- 
nium, an increase of $3.7 million, or 38.2 per cent, over comparable ex- 
penditures for the current biennium. In addition to the State General Fund 
appropriation, the Board of Health is expected to receive Federal funds 
during the biennium in the amount of $11.3 million, and other miscel- 
laneous receipts which will provide a total biennial budget of $25,342,396. 
Major 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 N. C. 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 
recommended State appropriation provides for an increase of $8,149,675, 
or 26.2 per cent over comparable expenditures in 1965-67. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 37 

These increases will provide for continuation of recent trends in both 
caseloads and grants 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 expendi- 
tures 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 Capi- 
tal 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. 

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 Re- 
sources, 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 Carolina. Our Capital Improvements Budget recommends $255,000 
for the construction of these new facilities. They will benefit tremendously 



38 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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 proj- 
ects 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 commodi- 
ties. 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, how- 
ever, we must become more competitive in the production, processing and 
marketing 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 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- 
tural Experiment Stations. 

This agriculture budget is designed to accelerate the rate of total agri- 
cultural 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 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 39 

and highways, with the balance remaining to State construction. High- 
way 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 con- 
struction. 

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 elec- 
tronic data processing. 

The increased budget will provide for an additional 125 patrolmen and 
their related expenses. We considered carefully the request by the De- 
partment 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 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 examina- 
tions are beneficial to the Patrol and the troopers. We have requested suffi- 
cient 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 reflectorized 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 Gen- 
eral Assembly will give early and favorable consideration to this recom- 
mendation. 

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 



40 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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 excellent cooperation that does exist between labor and man- 
agement. Both are to be commended for their contributions to the total de- 
velopment 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 re- 
vealed 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 
employment created approximately 181,500 new jobs in this five-year pe- 
riod, 61,000 more than if the State had experienced the same employment 
growth rate as did the entire United States. 

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, in- 
cluding 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 mea- 
sure with the hope that such bonds will be sparingly used. I recommend 
that if such a bill is passed, that the General Assembly create a State Au- 
thority which will have final approval as to the issuance of any bonds un- 
der 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. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 41 

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 com- 
petitive 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. 

However, in view of the serious economic effects of tight money, it is 
my recommendation that this General Assembly study the entire credit situ- 
ation, 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 amend- 
ments 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. 

Representatives of local government brought this problem to the at- 
tention of the Tax Study Commission which was authorized by the 1965 
General Assembly. I agree with the conclusions of the Commission that 
some additional sources of revenue should be made available to counties 
and municipalities. I recommend that this General Assembly give serious 
consideration to the Tax Study Commission recommendation that local gov- 
ernments be empowered to help themselves by the addition of a one per 
cent tax to be collected by the North Carolina Department of Revenue 
along with, and on the same sales as, the present three per cent tax. There 
would be no extra cost of collections since the State Department of Reve- 
nue would simply rebate the one per cent to the county. 

The local option sales tax, which is working successfully in a number of 
States, would provide substantial additional revenues for those localities 
in which property taxes are believed to be too high or where substantial 



42 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

additional revenue is needed. These major urban areas need a permanent 
financing plan rather than being forced to come to the Legislature every 
two years for temporary assistance. Actually, the property tax burden in 
many of our counties and municipalities has not yet reached levels which 
demand relief. 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. 

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 bur- 
dens 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, com- 
munity 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, en- 
courage 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 statewide 
planning and development which becomes more essential each day. 

North Carolina is now divided into three major regions for total de- 
velopment. In Western North Carolina, the Appalachian Regional Develop- 
ment Program has advanced rapidly. More than $2.5 million have been al- 
located for new highways, schools, hospitals, airports, waste treatment fa- 
cilities and permanent assets. To make most effective use of their resources, 
- the counties have formed Local Development Districts as a means of com- 
ing 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 Ap- 
palachian Regional Commission programs. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 43 

The Governor's Advisory Committee of the Piedmont Crescent was estab- 
lished last year to coordinate governmental efforts to promote orderly 
growth in this industrial heartland of our State. More than 100 outstand- 
ing 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 forward 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 
the State. These regional offices have completed data on sixty-five com- 
munities on which no usable data was previously available. Personal con- 
tact has been made with 426 separate North Carolina manufacturing firms 
as a means of providing specific services to our existing industries. Re- 
gional 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, sci- 
ence and technology. The North Carolina Board of Science and Technology, 
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 col- 
leges, universities and research institutions totalling over $1 million, which 
in turn attracted $5.9 million in grants from other sources. This repre- 
sented 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 Ra- 
leigh 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 under- 
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 de- 
pendent 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. 



44 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

I intend to appoint a "blue ribbon" commission from top management in 
private business and industry to advise me on the adequacy of present sal- 
aries 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 admin- 
istration 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 im- 
proving, with my approval, a positive and constructive program of per- 
sonnel administration based on merit and performance. 

I recommend to this General Assembly that sufficient funds be made 
available to the State Personnel Board to provide a management develop- 
ment and training program. This will enable the State to employ outstand- 
ing college graduates who have an interest in public administration, ca- 
pacity 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 re- 
tirement 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 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 45 

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 respon- 
sibility 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 
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 re- 
lated 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 ex- 
cellent 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 Gen- 
eral 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 I feel 
that 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 Govern- 
ment is considering a new tax increase at this time. Social Security pay- 
ments also continue to rise. 

In view of our bright revenue outlook, I recommend to this General As- 
sembly 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 chil- 
dren 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 



46 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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- 
payer. In many cases, the small taxpayer would be totally exempt from 
paying any State tax. 

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 edu- 
cation 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. The exemptions will cost 
$350,000 during the next biennium. 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 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 continu- 
ing 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 ne- 
cessities of their school children. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 47 

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 encour- 
agement, 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 
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 else- 
where, 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 ap- 
propriating 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 con- 
structive 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 budg- 
et, 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 appropriations 
are spent in accordance with legislative intent. We shall continue our efforts 
to give the people of North Carolina honest, efficient and economical gov- 
ernment. 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 re- 
sources. 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 re- 
sources, 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.

1967] SENATE JOURNAL 65 

The President welcomes to the Senate Chamber Mr. Merrill Evans, for- 
mer member of the Senate and former Chairman of the Highway Com- 
mission, and Mr. Robert Collier, former member of the House of Repre- 
sentatives. 

Senator Austin speaks on a point of personal privilege, and upon his 
motion, his remarks are spread upon the Journal, as follows : 

Mr. President, I arise to a point of personal privilege. 

News stories in yesterday's Raleigh Times, and in today's News and 
Observer, undertake to make it appear that I have intentionally been im- 
polite or discourteous to our Governor. In addition, an editorial writer for 
the News and Observer has undertaken to amplify this and, of course, most 
people are defenseless to irresponsible newspaper reporting and the opin- 
ions of editorial writers. 

In simple fairness to myself, I wish to say that I have meant no 
discourtesy to the Governor, or to his office; nor have I uttered the state- 
ments appearing in the newspapers as they were reported. Certainly, I 
would not expect the Governor to know everyone who he sees on the street 
and I am sure that his invitation to me arose out of courtesy to me and 
to other members of the General Assembly and was not intended to be 
placed on a personal basis and I did not so consider it. 

It just happens that I commute from out in the country and I have 
many chores to attend to each day which I cannot perform and be in 
Raleigh for a breakfast at 8:00 o'clock without inconvenience to me and 
to others. What I earnestly intended to convey to those who extended me 
the invitation was simply that I like the Governor's program and that I 
can support it, and will support it, regardless of whether I can participate 
in the extension of the Governor's courtesies at Legislative breakfasts. 

I regret very much that this incident has occurred. I do not intend to 
project myself into a controversy with the newspapers. I do wish to make 
the record speak the truth and that is why I have made this statement. 
As far as I am concerned, the incident can be closed. I am sure that Gov- 
ernor Moore is quite familiar with the methods of the press and that he 
would not feel that, on the basis of these publications, he is due an apology 
from me. However, I do apologize to the Governor for what the press had 
made out of what I said and I can assure him, and I assure the members 
of the General Assembly, that nothing I have said has stemmed from any 
desire to be impolite, discourteous or inconsiderate to our Governor for 
whom I have the greatest admiration and respect. 

The President grants a leave of absence to Senator Griffin for tomorrow, 
February 24, 1967.

NINETEENTH DAY 

Senate Chamber, 
Wednesday, March 1, 1967. 

The Senate meets pursuant to adjournment, and is called to order by 
Lieutenant Governor Robert W. Scott. 

Prayer is offered by the Reverend Donald A. Campbell, pastor of Haw- 
fields Presbyterian Church, Mebane, North Carolina. 

Senator Matheson for the Committee on Journal announces that he 
has examined the Journal of yesterday and finds the same correct, and 
upon his motion the reading of the Journal is dispensed with and it stands 
approved as written. 

Upon motion of Senator White of Lenoir, the following remarks of Sen- 
ator Scott are ordered spread upon the Journal: 
Mr. President and Members of the Senate: 

I invite you, and all others among us, to join me in recognition of a na- 
tive North Carolinian — the late Private First Class Hiram (Butch) Strick- 
land of Route 2, Graham, Alamance County, who last week was given post- 
humously a signal honor. 

This tribute came to him when the Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge, 
Pennsylvania, presented him its highest award, the George Washington 
Medallion Medal, for a letter he wrote in Vietnam shortly before he was 
killed heroically in action. 

The letter is in the language of a 20-year-old young man writing to his 
family. But this letter, in its simplicity, gives us in unforgettable form, 
three of the basic guidelines which have made our nation great — "Love of 
God, love of country, love of family." 

Pfc. Strickland enlisted into the Army on June 2, 1964, just two days 
after graduating from Alamance County's Southern High School. He saw 
a year of service in Korea and then assumed his assignment in Vietnam on 
Nov. 28, 1965. He was killed Feb. 1, 1966, while on patrol and as he was 
in the process of rescuing one of his comrades. Those on the scene told 
how he died not only in combat with the enemy but in attempting to save 
the life of a fellow soldier. 

Sometime later, as his personal belongings were being assembled for 
his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Donald A. Strickland, a letter was found in his 
notebook. It had fallen behind his bunk. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 81 

His commanding officer, in sending the letter to his parents, commended 
its content and the allegiance it held for the cause and the love he ex- 
pressed so strongly for his country. 

Since that time, the letter has become a new symbol of expression of 
love of God, love of country, love of family — an expression which should 
be shared at every opportunity. 

The panel of judges of Freedoms Foundation chose Pfc. Strickland's 
letter from among thousands of writings, sermons, essays, and documenta- 
tions as being the most outstanding expression, recorded during 1966, of the 
American concept of life's highest values. This tribute, carrying with it 
the George Washington Medallion Medal, has been awarded only a few 
times in the 18 years it has been available, with Astronaut John Glenn, 
the late Walt Disney, and United States Senator John McClellan among 
those so honored. 

I feel deeply that this letter and the memory of this North Carolinian, 
who has brought such honor and inspiration to our state, should become 
a part of our state's history and be held among our most treasured archives. 

Therefore, I submit to you for adoption a resolution honoring the life 
and memory of Private First Class Hiram (Butch) Strickland as an entry 
into our state's official record. May we honor him here today. May we ex- 
press in this way our sympathy to the family and our respect for their 
heroic son. 

The President grants leave of absence to Senator Gilmore for today. 

Upon motion of Senator Byrd, the President extends the courtesies of 
the floor to former Senator H. J. Hatcher. 

Upon motion of Senator White of Cleveland, the President extends the 
courtesies of the floor to former Senator Clyde Nolan of Cleveland County. 

Upon motion of Senators Kemp and McLendon, the President extends 
the courtesies of the galleries to a delegation of ladies from the Archdale- 
Trinity Woman's Club in Randolph County.

Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen of this Senate : 

Today many members of this Body made a sad pilgrimage to Lillington, 
North Carolina. We saw a precious little girl go to her final rest. This little 
girl was born two years ago during the Session of the General Assembly. 
She might never have been able to run and play and laugh like most 
children, but what she lacked in the physical things of life was more 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 93 

than made up for in the abundant love given to her by a fine mother and 
father. 

The Bible says "God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in 
trouble." Bob and Katie Morgan showed that tremendous strength in the 
two years of her life. They also showed great courage, great faith, and a 
greater love. 

Tonight we stand in solemn awe at our Master's Will. When one of us is 
hurt, all of us are hurt, and in our own way we seek to share that hurt one 
with another. But we really cannot because we truly do not know how. 

Little Alice Jean Morgan lived two years — a life in which she truly 
blessed a wonderful home. The tears and heartaches of this hour are ex- 
ceeded only in the human beauty of that precious life. God's Will has pre- 
vailed. He needed her more than they or we. 

Mr. President, and Ladies and Gentlemen of the Senate, I now move 
that we adjourn to meet again tomorrow at eleven o'clock and that in ad- 
journing we do so in loving memory of this precious little girl, Alice Jean 
Morgan, and as a token of the esteem, affection, and closeness in which 
we hold her fine parents, Bob and Katie Morgan. 

The motion of Senator Futrell is unanimously carried by rising vote 
of the members of the Senate and the Senate stands adjourned to meet 
tomorrow at 11 o'clock.

March 10, 1967. 
The Honorable Robert W. Scott, 
State Legislative Building, 
Raleigh, North Carolina. 
The Honorable David M. Britt, 
Speaker, House of Representatives, 
Raleigh, North Carolina. 
Dear Bob and Dave: 

Katie and I are so grateful to both of you, the members and staff of 
the House and Senate, and the press for the comfort and strength you 
gave during the most difficult days of our lives. The presence of so many 
of you, the beautiful flowers, and the words of comfort, both spoken and 
written, helped to ease the burden of our grief and the loss of our precious 
little girl. 

Nearly two years ago in the midst of the 1965 Session, you shared with 
us our joy when God's power brought little Alice Jean to us, and you 
shared, too, our concern for her physical infirmities. During the months 
that followed, the prayers and faith of our friends helped her to overcome 
most of her handicaps and develop, with a warm and enduring smile, the 
disposition that we will cherish forever, and that many of you saw in 
the Legislative Building on Monday night just prior to her death. 

While we have complete confidence in the future life, the separation is 
still hard to bear and our hearts are broken. And yet, we know that God's 
love and power is much greater than ours and that our child is in far 
better hands with Him. 

Sincerely, 

Bob and Katie Morgan.

Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Senate: 

There was today presented to all of you a report from the higher board 
of education concerning the East Carolina question. In this report, there 
is contained a copy of the report issued by the consultants who were brought 
into North Carolina to study East Carolina College and its bid for univer- 
sity status. I commend especially this consultant's report to you because 
during the last few months, there have been constant so-called authoritative 
reports from the press and various newspapers of the state regarding what 
it is purported to contain and what it is not supposed to contain. We ask, 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 119 

ladies and gentlemen, that you consider the facts concerning East Carolina 
College and that you arrive at your decision upon the merits of the case. 

Mr. President and ladies and gentlemen of the Senate, as I picked up 
this morning's paper, I was distressed to read in that paper, a press release 
by Mr. Watts Hill, Jr., who is chairman of the higher board of education, 
concerning the manner in which the report was released to me some week 
or two ago. I had not received a copy of Mr. Hill's letter, but as I read that 
letter, I felt that it reflected upon my integrity and while I do not believe 
that I need any defense in this body nor do I believe my integrity needs 
any defense with the voters of this state who have elected me to public 
office for sixteen and a half years, I do feel compelled to set the record 
straight. I believe that this letter was calculated by Mr. Hill to raise in- 
nuendoes concerning events that have happened in the past. I base my 
opinion upon the fact that it was handed out yesterday afternoon to the 
members of the press and news media attending a press conference long 
before I received the letter. I did not receive the letter until I arrived at 
my office this morning at 10:30. 

Before I comment further on this particular matter, I want to ask you 
again, and say to you, I am sure I speak for all the friends of East Caro- 
lina College, not only in this body but throughout all of North Carolina 
when I ask you to consider the matters before this body concerning that 
college solely on its merits, and not upon accusations, innuendoes or infer- 
ences drawn by Mr. Hill or me or anyone else. 

I do want to say to you that since over a year ago, when the Board of 
Trustees instructed our President to discuss this matter in the state, it has 
been the most frustrating experience of my entire legislative career. I 
will not recount or rehash all of the accusations that have been made, but 
I would like to recite just two or three incidents to point out to you the 
difficulties that I personally have encountered. 

Let me say one other point — we make no apology, to anyone, for taking 
the case of East Carolina College to the people of this state. Nor do we 
make any apology for asking this legislative body to decide the issue. 
Throughout the years, the Legislature of North Carolina has been able 
to decide for itself the course of education as well as higher education 
and many other issues in North Carolina and I say, Mr. President, that we 
are not plowing any new ground in taking this matter to the. public. I ask 
you to consult the Charlotte Observer for May 13, 1964, just before the 
Democratic primary, and also for April of that year, where you will find 
that the question of university status for Charlotte was put squarely to 
the Democratic nominees for Governor of this state. 

Now, Mr. President, the Board of Trustees of East Carolina College, 
after this matter had been discussed considerably, passed a resolution 
asking the board of higher education to study this matter. Sometime later, 
we received a list of several names and a letter pointing out to us that 
the consulting group would be chosen from these persons. But that the 
chairman of the Committee would be a Dr. Allan Cartter. Somehow, some- 
where, that name rang a bell. And when I began to do a little research, 
or had others to do it for me, I found that Dr. Allan Cartter, while a very 
outstanding educator, possessed some very dogmatic views on the very 



120 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

question which we were asking this Committee to study. If I may, I would 
like to say to you that this article was published no earlier than July of 
1965 in the Southern Economic Journal published by the University of 
North Carolina and the Southern Economic Association of which Mr. Hill 
is a member, so he stated at the North Carolina press conference. In that 
article, Dr. Cartter discussed southern education. He reached the conclusion 
that "universities such as Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and West 
Virginia can hardly claim to have reached university statute in either size 
or breadth of graduate offerings." In nearly 50 pages he discussed the 
question further. Then, he said this, "on the question of establishing priori- 
ties, I do not feel optimistic. I doubt if the State of North Carolina by itself 
would be able to withstand the political pressure to convert the former 
teacher colleges into universities and to begin community colleges in every 
metropolis, and instead continue to invest adequately in its already dis- 
tinguished university." I can find no fault with Dr. Cartter for possessing 
these views, but I hardly thought he was the man to make an impartial 
study. 

After this question was resolved, many other matters have arisen. One 
afternoon, I picked up the local newspaper and I found in large banner 
headlines the statement that the East Carolina question resolved itself 
down to "Moore versus Morgan." Mr. Hill was quoted as having said that 
the question would be who had the most votes in the General Assembly — 
Governor Moore or Robert Morgan. The Governor quickly assured me that 
he had made no such statement. Later in the North Carolina press con- 
ference, Senator Futrell asked Mr. Hill about that very statement. Mr. 
Hill said this, "I was quoting Dr. Jenkins when I made that statement." I 
searched the archives that are available to me, and talked with Dr. Jenkins. 
I have talked with people throughout the state, and I find no one who 
has ever heard Dr. Jenkins make that statement. We do not believe it to be 
the question of who has the most votes. We simply ask that you consider 
the question on its merits. 

Now down to the point in issue. Around the first of February, the press 
reported that this consultant's report was available and had been made 
available to the board of higher education. There continued to be a series 
of news stories purporting to contain the contents of that report. I went to 
a very distinguished member of the higher board of education, and I dis- 
cussed with him the fact that I felt that the report should be made avail- 
able to President Jenkins and to myself inasmuch as it was being discussed 
in the press and would be discussed further. This member agreed, and I 
suggested to him that I might ask the assistance of the Attorney General. 
This member of the higher board of education very wisely said to me, "I 
wish you would not do that; we have had enough of this in the newspapers." 
I readily agreed. He said, "Will you wait a few days, and I will make the 
request that this report be made available to you." I waited a few days, 
and to use his words, he used to me this morning, "at least a week," after 
he made his request. Nothing was heard — only continued reports that the 
press report would be made available today. 

On Monday, February 20, I wrote to the board of higher education re- 
questing a copy of the report, and at the same time, I wrote the Attorney 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 121 

General of North Carolina and asked him if I was entitled to it under the 
law. On Wednesday morning, February 22, Mr. Ralph Moody, Assistant 
Attorney General, called me and said that he had received my request 
and he thought it ought not to be necessary to render a written opinion; 
that the law worked both ways and that he would call Dr. Howard Boozer, 
Director of the higher board of education, and ask him to make the report 
available to me. I thanked him for his report. He did call Dr. Boozer. 
Later Mr. Hill called him. As the press reports and as Mr. Hill has stated 
earlier, there apparently was a heated exchange. I had made what I 
thought was the proper effort to obtain this report without the necessity 
of making such a request and when I felt my effort was futile, I requested 
an opinon from the Attorney General. 

Since Mr. Hill has questioned my account of this story in his letter 
which was handed out at his news conference, I asked Mr. Moody this 
morning if he would write me and relate the sequence of events. I read 
his letter to you and ask that it be made a part of the record. 

"Honorable Robert B. Morgan 
Seat No. 2 
Senate Chamber 
Legislative Building 
Raleigh, North Carolina 

Dear Senator Morgan: 

At your request I give below the sequence of events in connection with 
your letter to this office asking for a ruling on your right to inspect a 
report prepared by the consultants with reference to East Carolina College. 

You sent this office a letter, dated February 20, 1967, in which you re- 
quested a ruling on your right to inspect the above referred to report, 
and this letter was referred to me for answer. I called you over the tele- 
phone and told you that there was a probability that we might clear this 
matter up by conversation with Dr. Howard Boozer, Director of the Board 
of Higher Education. On February 22, 1967, I talked with Dr. Boozer over 
the telephone about this matter and told him in substance that when the 
Board of Higher Education wanted to see a certain report made by con- 
sultants in regard to matters concerning East Carolina that this office had 
ruled that the Board of Higher Education had a right to inspect a report 
as well as the supporting papers and data. This ruling was made at the 
request of Mr. Watts Hill, Chairman of the Board of Higher Education. I 
further told Dr. Boozer in substance that I thought this rule worked both 
ways and that the matter seemed so clear to me that this office should not 
be required to rule on your letter of February 20, 1967. Dr. Boozer stated 
to me in substance that they had just received a report and that they had 
to make certain evaluations or review of the report and that the Board 
of Higher Education had to make its own report and then the report on 
East Carolina College would be open for inspection. Dr. Boozer did not 
commit himself as to when the report would be available for your inspection 
but it was an inference of my own from the conversation that it would 
be some time before the report would be made available to you. 



122 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

On the same day (February 22, 1967) I was out of the office for a few 
minutes and when I returned my secretary (Mrs. Cleo A. Purcell) told me 
that Mr. Watts Hill had called me while I was out of the office and re- 
quested that I return the call. I told Mrs. Purcell to get Mr. Hill over the 
telephone. I talked to him for some little time, and I told him in substance 
the same thing I told Dr. Boozer, and that was that the ruling that we 
had made when the Board of Higher Education wanted to inspect the 
papers and data of East Carolina College worked both ways and was 
equally applicable to the right of Senator Morgan to inspect a report of 
the consultants made to the Board of Higher Education, and that we 
thought that this report and its papers were public documents. Mr. Hill 
then went into some conversation as to what had to be done before the 
report would be available for inspection, and at the end of the conversation 
Mr. Hill stated that he was getting his Board of Higher Education together 
as soon as possible and then the report would be available for your inspec- 
tion. 

That evening before I left the office your secretary called me as to 
whether we had written a ruling on your letter, and I told her that we had 
not; she then asked me if I had talked to anyone about the matter, and I 
told her I had talked to Mr. Watts Hill. You were not in your legislative 
office so I called you at Lillington and told you what had transpired and 
further that I wanted you to understand that I had not called Mr. Hill, but 
as a matter of fact Mr. Hill had called me. I feel sure the records of the tel- 
ephone company will bear this out. My recollection is that I told you that 
Mr. Hill assured me that you would very soon see the report, and I asked 
you if you still wanted a ruling on this letter; you stated in substance that 
you did not tnink it would be necessary. I am giving you this bare outline 
of events as best I can, and I am sure you realize that I made no notes 
about the matter and never thought that I would be called upon to give 
a narrative of the events. Sincerely yours 

/s/ Ralph Moody 
Ralph Moody 
Deputy Attorney General" 

Some several hours after that, I was called and told that the report 
would be available. I appreciate the report. I am sorry to impose upon your 
time to discuss this matter with you; I am sorry for the necessity of taking 
these steps in order to get the report, but I did make another effort through 
one of the most respected members of the board of higher education. 

And I say to you again in public, and I would say to Mr. Hill in response 
to his letter, that it is interesting to me, that after much time had elapsed, 
I got the report only a very short time after the Attorney General had 
discussed the matter with him. I say to you, ladies and gentlemen of the 
Senate, that I do not intend again to comment on any remark of Mr. Hill's 
concerning any matter on East Carolina College, unless they deal directly 
with the merits of the issue or issues that are before you. I think that is 
what you are concerned with, and I believe that is the concern of the 
people of North Carolina. 

Upon motion of Senator Moore, the Senate adjourns to meet tomorrow 
at 12 M.

The Senate is received by the members of the House of Representatives

Robert W. Scott. 

Lieutenant Governor Scott presents His Excellency, Governor Dan K. 
Moore, who delivers the following message: 

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 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 179 

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 appropriations 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 na- 
tional standards. I have proposed for your consideration a record $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. 

The years immediately ahead will bring increasing responsibility to 
public and private institutions of higher learning. North Carolina is in- 
debted 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 responsibility 
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 institu- 
tions in the future. 

The problem is not one of space alone. Education is of great impor- 
tance to the young men and women of each new generation. They choose 
vocations carefully, and they want and rightly expect the best possible 
training. To provide for them, North Carolina must have sound pro- 
grams 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 
statement. I want to emphasize to you the importance of the planning being 



180 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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 cannot 
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 in- 
terim 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 
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 oui 
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 intitu- 
tions; a representative of the State Board of Education; and eight mem- 
bers-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 Durham, a Trustee of the Agricultural and Technical 
College, 

John A. Pritchett, of Windsor, Vice-Chairman of the State Board oi 
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, 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 181 

W. C. Harris, Jr. of Raleigh, Trustee of the University of North Caro- 
lina, 

S. E. Duncan of Salisbury, Member-at-Large, 

Dr. Martin L. Brooks of Pembroke, a Trustee of Pembroke State Col- 
lege, 

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 fifty studies relating to all State-supported col- 
leges and the Consolidated University. These studies are in the major 
categories of administrative structure, organization and control, education- 
al 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 re- 
quire. 

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. 

The interim report gives considerable attention to the tuition charged 
in-State and out-of-State students at the various State-supported institu- 
tions. 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 in-State undergraduate students at $150 beginning with 



182 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

the 1968-69 academic year. I concur in general with these recommenda- 
tions. 

The increase in the tuition for undergraduate out-of-State students 
would add about $1.23 million to the income of the institutions. The equaliz- 
ing 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 approximately $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 
questions 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 
questions 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 par- 
ticipate in the study. I have today requested the Director of the Depart- 
ment 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 admis- 
sions standards prevail in some institutions, particularly some of those 
traditionally attended by Negro students. The Board says that such low 
admissions 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 com- 
plete. 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 ap- 
prove or to reject minimum admissions standards set by the State-sup- 
ported institutions. I concur in this recommendation and agree with the 
Board that this authority is essential if higher education in North Caro- 
lina is to be effectively coordinated 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 col- 
leges. 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 academ- 
ic standards, these institutions are faced with providing for the im- 
mediate 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 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 183 

gradual raising of admissions standards. Second, students obviously un- 
qualified to complete college level work must be directed to the college 
preparatory programs as well as the vocational and technical programs 
in the community college system. And, third, the predominantly Negro col- 
leges 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 General 
Assemblies for necessary strengthening of faculty, curricula and facilities 
at the predominantly Negro colleges. I concur in these general recom- 
mendations. 

The Board of Higher Education will submit soon a detailed report con- 
cerning 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 rev- 
enue. 

NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGE LAW SCHOOL 

The budget I presented in my last visit with you provided for the dis- 
continuance 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 de- 
cision. In light of its long-range planning program now under way, however, 
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 
presently 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 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 recom- 
mendations are far-reaching, and, if adopted, they would constitute a 
major change in the State's system of higher education. Therefore, I re- 
luctantly request that no action be taken in this area until the Board of 
Higher Education has completed its long-range planning program. I recom- 



184 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

mend 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 twenty-five 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 relative- 
ly 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, how- 
ever, decided to move ahead with a project to make that institution an 
independent university. The trustees requested the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion "to study the desirability of elevating East Carolina College to in- 
dependent university status." 

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 
consultants 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 committee of 
consultants took note of the fact that the Board of Higher Education 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 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 185 

fundamental change be made in the structure of the system of higher 
education at this time. The report of the Board was delivered to mem- 
bers 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 legisla- 
tion introduced in this General Assembly proposing independent university 
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 judgment, if an independent university is created by this General 
Assembly, the structure of our system of higher education would be destroy- 
ed. 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 As- 
sembly. That Legislature changed the name of one campus but it reaffirmed 
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 duplica- 
tion 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 overemphasize 
the importance of the planning and coordinating work it is now doing. The 
1955 General Assembly displayed remarkable insight in recognizing the 
growing demands in the area of higher education and in providing an 
agency such as the Board to plan on a State-wide basis. Later General 
Assemblies, particularly the 1965 Legislature, have improved its effective- 
ness. 

North Carolina has a fine system of higher education now, but it 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 



186 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

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 consolida- 
tion have been encouraged rather than hampered in their development. 
There is economy in their operation and there is no unnecessary duplica- 
tion. 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 great 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 creating 
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." 

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 
recommendations 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 
Education. I commend this report to you for study. 

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

It included these eight members of the North Carolina General As- 
sembly: 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 Bun- 
combe, 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. Mc- 
Lendon of Greensboro; and Thomas J. Pearsall of Rocky Mount. Mr. Mc- 
Lendon 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. 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 187 

Six college presidents were also included in the Commission's mem- 
bership. They were President Bonnie E. Cone of Charlotte College, Presi- 
dent 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. 

I 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 demonstrat- 
ing 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 develop- 
ment 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 
educational 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 catch- 
ing up. 



188 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

As I said to you in my Legislative Message, "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 duplica- 
tion, unnecessary rivalry for limited appropriations and a general weaken- 
ing 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" commis- 
sion 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 educa- 
tion 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 haphazard and uncoordinated manner. 

We must know how adequate State-supported higher educational op- 
portunities are. Then and only then, can our resources be used where 
they will do the most good for our young people. North Carolina cannot af- 
ford 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. 

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 re- 
sources 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. 
I am confident that by your wisdom and your unselfish dedication to 
our State, you will see that North Carolina follows the proper course. 
The future of higher education in North Carolina is in your capable hands. 

Upon motion of Senator Moore, the Joint Session is dissolved and the 
Senate returns to its Chamber.

The bill, as amended, passes its third reading and is ordered engrossed 
and sent to the House of Representatives. 

Upon motion of Senator Whitehurst, the following remarks submitted 
by Senator Ellis are ordered spread upon the Journal: 

Some of the newspapers in reporting the action taken by the Senate 
on Senate Bill No. 104, dealing with abortions, seem to imply that my 
opposition to the bill was stimulated and motivated solely by my religion. 
In order to set the record straight, if Senate Bill No. 104 in its present 
form, had the support of every Catholic clergyman and layman in the 
entire world, I would still oppose it. I oppose this bill for the following 
reasons : 

1. As stated to you yesterday when I spoke in support of Senator Bailey's 
amendment to delete lines 17 and 18 from the bill, this provision leaves 
too much to speculation. There is no definition of what constitutes a grave 
physical or mental defect. What may be grave to one person may be minor 
to another. Many physically deformed children are mentally normal and 
even bright. They have brought joy and happiness to their parents and 
friends, and many of them have grown up to be valuable citizens who 
made substantial contributions to the growth and progress of their com- 
munity, state and nation. 

2. The apparent safeguard of having three doctors of medicine certify 
in writing the circumstances which they believe to justify the abortion 
looks good on paper. But will it work in practice? How difficult do you think 
it would be for one doctor to find two doctors who will agree with him 
on any matter? By way of comparison, Rule 44 of the Supreme Court 
Rules sets out the procedure for a petition to rehear a case decided by 
the Supreme Court. One of the things to be done is to have at least 
2 members of the bar of the Supreme Court, who have no interest in the 
subject matter and have not been of counsel to either party in the suit, 
and each of whom shall have been at least 5 years a member of the bar 
of the Supreme Court, certify that they have carefully examined the case 
and the law bearing thereon and the authorities cited in the opinion, and 
they shall summarize succinctly in such certificate the points in which 
they deem the opinion erroneous. Under such circumstances, a person 
would think that it would be difficult to have a petition to rehear filed 
in the Supreme Court. But the contrary is true. It is a very easy matter 



210 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

to find two competent and qualified lawyers who will sign such a certificate. 
Now, if it is simple to find two lawyers who will agree with the attorney 
filing the petition that the Supreme Court has committed error, don't 
you honestly believe that it would be easier for one doctor to find two 
other competent and reputable doctors to support his judgment on an 
abortion case? The sincerity or the integrity of any doctor is not at issue. 
Some of my best friends are doctors who believe the abortion laws should 
be liberalized. Other doctors disagree. That is not the point. The point is 
simply this : If a doctor honestly and sincerely believes that abortion 
should be one of the methods to be used in planning parenthood, controlling 
the population explosion or creating a master race, he would have no 
problem in getting two other competent, qualified, reputable, capable and 
honest doctors to agree with him. Therefore, in such a case, the political 
and social philosophy of the doctor would determine his decision in an 
abortion case. Hardly a week passes that articles written by prominent 
doctors supporting such a philosophy do not appear in some of our leading 
magazines and periodicals. 

One of the reporters who wrote about the action taken yesterday by 
the Senate on Senate Bill 104, made it very clear to identify me as a 
Catholic. It is significant to me that this careful, impartial and accurate 
reporter failed to identify the religious affiliations of those who opposed 
the bill or those who supported it. As my good friend Senator Tom White 
stated last week, I dislike to dignify irresponsible reporting by referring 
to it on the floor of the Senate. But when a reporter, by innuendo or 
implication tries to give the reason for my opposition or support of any 
legislation without consulting with me and by trying to minimize or dis- 
regard my real reasons by writing the story in such a manner as to suggest 
that my vote was motivated solely by my religion, then I feel impelled to 
speak on the subject. I have had communications from doctors, lawyers, 
Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Jews, Episcopalians, and members of 
other denominations supporting my opposition to this bill. I have no 
apologies to make for being a Catholic. Neither does my wife have any to 
make for being a Methodist. And I am sure that no one here or elsewhere 
has any apologies to make for his or her religious affiliation. 

I am sure that I speak not only for myself but for every member of 
the General Assembly in saying that our religious beliefs will always 
open our hearts, but as citizens of this great State and Nation, and par- 
ticularly as legislators, I hope and pray they will never close our ears, 
our eyes and our minds.

Passes its second and third readings and is ordered enrolled.

Senator Allsbrook in reference to S. R. 256, a joint resolution honoring 
the life and memory of W. Kerr Scott, former Governor and United 
States Senator from North Carolina, which was passed this day, are 
ordered spread upon the Journal: 

I am sure, Mr. President and Ladies and Gentlemen of the Senate, 
after having heard this resolution read, that nothing could be said by me 
that would add any lustre to this great character; but I would like to 
say this to you, that it was my privilege to serve with Governor Scott 
during the entire four years that he was Governor. Rather ironically, I 
was Chairman of a Judiciary Committee for the four years. I am now 
completing my second term of two years, which would make a four- 
year term, on a Judiciary Committee under his son, the Lieutenant 
Governor of this State. 

I think as we come to realize that yesterday was the anniversary of 
his death, and today is the anniversary of his birth, which was seventy- 
one years ago, that it would not be amiss for me to say that tonight, as 
we commemorate one of the greatest men whom North Carolina, in my 
opinion, has ever produced, it was his task to adapt the government to 
a new-found democracy, and to teach to that democracy the need of 
religion. His work is done. His voice has joined the invisible choir, not 
in mourning to come but blessed with the solemn privilege of considering 
what this man has meant to the people of North Carolina, and to posterity, 
and to the world, so that at the call of imminent duty we may go forth 
strengthened in heart, and fixed in our purpose to pass his message on. 

A rugged pioneer, a brave, sure-footed and tireless, the path he blazed 
leads to a land where men know each other, and therefore cease from 
mistrust and hatred, and ail-inclusively, and where every man having 
9 



256 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

broken bread and tasted salt with every other man is bound by the 
kindly laws of hospitality. Clearly to him came the vision of an ordered 
universe, where creature is related to Creator, and each to all. This 
was no mystic theory to be absorbed by him. It must be translated into 
terms of definite duty, into life and living. This man demanded the actual, 
the tangible, in terms of human welfare. Thinking for its sake, yes 
religion for self-salvation, seeming fruitless abstractions to him, he held 
with beauty, truth and faith in the world, that they may ameliorate 
government in the common lot. His respect for the human soul demanded 
for each freedom of thought and expression, independence in all things, 
whether such independence did not impinge upon the equal independence 
of others. He had an honest hatred of shams. In this relative world, no one 
had a keener sense of proportion. He led his life and said his say regard- 
less of conventions that had back of them social meaning. Stoic he was, 
and Christian. He could not respect himself as a stoic if heedless of his 
Master's message concerning his neighbor. 

Of him it might be said that as a friend I need not speak. He was 
loyal and tender. To a mind that sought justice and righteousness, there 
was added a heart full of pity. The keynote of his life was unselfishness. 
Such a soul reflects to us the pity, the friendliness of God who gave it. And 
let me say in closing, that I think this little poem might remind us of the 
passing of this great man, who might have said: 

Let me go as gracefully 
As stars reach to infinity; 
As brooks that pass the time of day 
With buttercups along the way; 
As giant elms whose boughs have seen 
Uncounted summers pass between. 
I shall not then lament the past, 
The flush of youth which cannot last; 
Nor will I mark with great despair 
The silver dawning in my hair. 
I shall not mourn the journey's close, 
The twilight darkening the road. 
But classic as a woodland stream, 
Content to linger and to dream, 
Glad will I treasure while I can 
Earth's beauty and my fellowman. 
Glad learn to live in calm repose 
Each golden hour life bestows. 

Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Senate, I say to you that 
this courageous, individualistic Governor gave to North Carolina great 
leadership which was needed at the time to bring the rural areas of our 
State together with the urban areas of our State and compose one great 
commonwealth from the mountains to the sea. It was he that as the black- 
smith might see fit to weld into common union those who come from the 
far reaches of the west as they gather and meet in kindly encounter 
with those of the outer banks of the east. So, Mr. President, Ladies and 



1967] SENATE JOURNAL 257 

Gentlemen of the Senate, I move on this date, the anniversary of his 
birth, and on yesterday, the anniversary of his passing, the immediate 
passage of this resolution to the end that it may then be sent to the 
House since it is a concurrent resolution being introduced jointly in both 
bodies. And I say furthermore that when we adjourn tonight, I move also 
that we adjourn in memory of this great Governor, this great citizen of 
ours who has left such an impression upon this State that time alone 
will be able to evaluate its full and lasting impact. 

Upon motion of Senator Moore, the Senate adjourns in honor of the 
memory of former Governor and United States Senator W. Kerr Scott, 
to meet tomorrow at 12 M.
