PREFACE 

This volume is issued by the North Carolina Historical Com- 
mission in order to furnish in succinct form information about the 
State, its government and institutions, which otherwise would re- 
quire much investigation in many different sources. Unless other- 
wise stated, the data in each case is the latest available. 

Similar manuals were issued by the Secretary of State in 
1903, 1905, and 1907, and by the North Carolina Historical Com- 
mission in 1909, 1911, 1913, 1915, 1917, 1919, 1921, 1923, 1925, 1927, 
1929 and 1931. The demand for these volumes has been so great 
that all editions except those of 1925 and 1927 have been exhausted. 

The cut in the 1930-1931 and 1931-1933 appropriations of the His- 
torical Commission as a result of the general condition of State 
finances has compelled a sharp reduction in the size and scope of 
the 1931 and 1933 editions of the Manual. The sections, "Executive 
Departments," "Judicial Department," "State Departments, Boards 
and Commissions," "State Charitable and Correctional Institu- 
tions," "Miscellaneous," and "Constitutions," which are found in 
previous editions, have been omitted.

A. L. Fletcher, Commissioner 

Title — Commissioner. 

Appointment — Elected. 

Term — Four- years. 

Salary— $4,500. 

Ex Officio Member — Board of Advisers Veterans Loan Fund. 

Function 

The General Assembly of 1931 passed "An Act to Provide for the 
Establishment of a Department of Labor and to Prescribe the Powers 
and Duties of the Department of Labor and the Commissioner of 
Labor." 

Under Section 4 of the Act it is provided that the Department 
of Labor shall consist of the following officers, divisions and 
sections: 

A Commissioner of Labor: a Division of Workmen's Compensa- 
tion, as a separate and distinct unit: a Division of Standards and 
Inspections; a Division of Statistics. 

The Division of Standards and Inspections took over the duties, 
powers and jurisdiction of the old Child Welfare Commission and 
upon the Commissioner of Labor devolved all of the duties and 
powers bestowed by Ch. 120, Consolidated Statutes of North Caro- 
lina, upon the Commissioner of Labor and Printing and the As- 
sistant Commissioner, with the exception that the handling of the 
state printing was transferred to the newly created Department of 
Purchase and Contract. The Commissioner was designated as the 
"executive and administrative head of the Department of Labor." 

While the law provides for the operation of the North Carolina 
Industrial Commission, created under the provisions of the Work- 
men's Compensation Act, Ch. 120, P. L. 1929, "as a separate and dis- 
tinct unit," there is authorization for cooperation between the Com- 
missioner of Labor and the Industrial Commission in statistical 
and inspection work. (Sec. 11, Ch. 231, P. L. 1931.) Under this 
provision of the law it will be possible to carry out Section 8 of 
the act relative to the collection of statistics necessary for the 
proper functioning of the department. 



■ !'i New Boards and Commissions 

The Department of Labor is also charged with the administra- 
tion of free employment offices, in cooperation with cities and 
counties or with the Federal Government. 

The Commissioner of Labor is ex officio member of the Board of 
Advisers of the Veterans' Loan Fund created by Ch. 155, P. L. 
1925. He is also charged with the responsibility of providing 
assistance to veterans of the World War in the matter of claims 
against the government, as set out in Ch. 288, P. L. 1925.

Commissioners 
Appointment — By Governor. 
Term — Chairman and three commissioners appointed for four years; 

three commissioners for two years. 
Compensation — Chairman, $6,000; commissioners, $10.00 per diem. 

The State Highway work in North Carolina began in 1915 and 
progressed during the intervening years until it reached its climax 
in 1931, when, under the provisions of Chapter 145, Public Laws, 
1931, all county roads in the State were taken over for maintenance 
and all county prisoners serving sixty days or more were placed 
under the management of the Highway Commission. This placed 
the control and responsibility for all roads in the State upon the 
State Highway Commission. 

All costs of maintenance, retirement of bonds, and provision for 
prisoners is taken care of by revenue from taxes on gasoline and 
motor vehicle licenses. 

Following the passage of the 1931 Act, the Highway Commission 
was reorganized to consist of six commissioners frm the State at 
large, and a chairman. A state highway engineer was appointed 
and the State was redivided into five divisions for administrative 
purposes instead of the previous nine districts for construction pur- 
poses. Each of the divisions was divided into five districts with 
an engineer in charge of each. 

At the present time there are 10,317 miles on the State Highway 
System and 46,524 miles on the County System, which is maintained 
by the State as outlined above.

40 New Boards and Commissions 

DIVISION OF PURCHASE AND CONTRACT 

Chapter 261, P. L. 1931 

Organization — Division in the Executive Office. 

Personnel — A. S. Brower, Director. 

Appointment— By Governor. 

Term — During pleasure of Governor. 

Compensation — Fixed by Governor with approval of Advisory Bud- 
get Commission. 

Board of Award — The members of the Advisory Budget Commission 
serve ex officio as a Board of Award. 

Function 

The Division of Purchase and Contract was created by the General 
Assembly of 1931, and began operation on July 1, 1931. 

The purposes of the law are to provide for centralized purchasing 
or contracting of supplies for the State's Departments, Institutions 
and the Public Schools. 

The scope of the law as set out in the opening sections is as 
follows: 

(a) To canvass all sources of supply, and to contract for the 
purchase of all supplies, materials and equipment required by the 
State Government, or any of its departments, institutions or agencies 
under competitive bidding in the manner hereinafter provided for. 

(b) To establish and enforce standard specifications which shall 
apply to all supplies, materials and equipment, purchased or to be 
purchased for the use of the State Government for any of its de- 
partments, institutions or agencies. 

(c) To purchase or contract for all telephone, telegraph, electric 
light power, postal and any and all other contractual services and 
needs of the State Government, or any of its departments, institu- 
tions or agencies; or in lieu of such purchase or contract to author- 
ize any department, institution or agency to purchase or contract 
for any or all such services. 

(d) To rent or lease all grounds, buildings, offices, or other 
space required by any department, institution or agency of the 
State Government, provided, this shall not include temporary 
quarters for State Highway field forces or convict camps, or tem- 
porary places of storage for road materials. 



Division of Purchase and Contbact 11 

(e) To have general supervision of all storerooms and stores 
operated by the State Government, or any of its departments, in- 
stitutions or agencies; to provide transfer and /or exchange to or 
between all State departments, institutions and agencies, or to sell 
all supplies, materials and equipment which are surplus, obsolete 
or unused; and to maintain inventories of all fixed property and 
of all movable equipment, supplies and materials belonging to the 
State Government, or any of its departments, institutions or 
agencies. 

(f) To make provision for and to contract for all State printing, 
including all printing, binding, paper stock and supplies or materials 
in connection with the same. 

In the first place the law provides for a contracting agency rather 
than what is usually understood as a purchasing agency. It 
provides for canvassing requirements, making contracts with 
sources of supply, advertising, giving full details of materials 
required, time of delivery, etc., receiving sealed bids and entering 
into contracts to meet the needs of the State and the Public Schools; 
it makes only incidental provision for miscellaneous purchasing. 
Furthermore, the proceedings of the Division of Purchase and Con- 
tract and the Budget Commission, acting as a Board of Award, must 
be entirely public so that anyone interested may secure complete 
information about any particular transaction. 

The Division began operation on .July 1, 1931. It has two forms of 
contracts : 

1. A term contract which covers an estimated or indefinite 
amount of material to be delivered when, as, and if needed over a 
fixed period of time. There have been executed and certified to 
all the using agencies for their use and guidance 249 such con- 
tracts. Many of these contracts cover a long list or a large group 
of items. For instance, contract No. 180 covers a list of 53 items 
of school supplies, each of which in turn is divided up in such a 
manner as to make them available in various sizes, weights, etc., and 
contract No. 175 covers 29 items of school furniture, each sub- 
divided into units to represent different sizes, finishes, materials, 
etc. The number of items covered under this style of contract is 
very large. An index recently issued contains a list of approximate- 
ly 600 items covered by contracts now in force. The items range 
from absorbent gauze for hospital use to automobile trucks and 



1- New Boards and Commissions 

school bus bodies for hauling 75 school children. When and wnere 
suitable this type of contract is used. 

2. The second type of contract deals with a specified quantity 
to be delivered to a certain place and at a certain time. At each 
of the forty odd public lettings there have been long lists of such 
items purchased on the basis of sealed competitive bids. This type 
of contract is used for those items which do not lend themselves 
well to term contracts, and embraces a host of such items as fuel, 
most food-stuffs, textiles and such other items on which the prices 
fluctuate widely and often. The number of these items is very large 
also — the grocery list, issued quarterly, for instance, usually com- 
prises about 40 mimeographed pages and Highway items, textile 
items and other items falling in or near the commodity group 
swell the number to a tremendous figure and run the gamut from 
crawler type tractors and steam shovels to fine tooth combs and 
safety pins. 

Forty formal lettings have been held, with three or more mem- 
bers of the Budget Commission present at each letting. 

The one question most often asked concerning the Division is 
the extent of its savings. To answer this definitely and accurately, 
of course, is impossible, because no one could know what would 
have taken place under another system, particularly in view of 
the fact that prices have been undergoing an almost constant de- 
cline. A comparison of prices with those previously paid, even 
though much lower, may only represent normal declines in prices, 
but fortunately there are certain contracts and items based on 
differentials where no element of market decline enters, where a 
very fair comparison may be made, and a saving estimated which 
cannot be disputed. 

In this group of items are included a saving of $200,000 on Gas- 
oline, $100,000 on Tires, $50,000 on Fuel, $10,000 on School Bus 
Chasses, $2,000 on Chalk and $3,000 on one shipment of Paint alone. 

This list might be continued to cover a long list of items, but 
suffice it to say with very few and minor exceptions, an examination 
would show that prices paid have been lowered by the operation 
of open competitive bidding on quantities large enough to be attrac- 
tive, where every person, if he so chose, and if he were in a posi- 
tion to do so, had an equal chance with his every competitor to 
secure the business. 



Local Government Commission ±o 

Purchasing in North Carolina: Early in its operation the Divis- 
ion adopted a policy of doing no warehousing itself, but instead re- 
quiring local distribution. This policy of the Division in almost all 
lines gives North Carolina distributors a decided advantage, since 
it is necessary for the outsiders to come into the State and estab- 
lish distribution or distribute his products through some existing 
agency or merchant within the State. As a result of this policy 
practically all of our major contracts are with local people, arid 
though the profits that are being made on State contracts are 
doubtless extremely low, nevertheless, it is better that whatever 
profit is made should remain within the State than be exported. 
The Division is always anxious and glad to place a contract with 
a North Carolina firm, whether manufacturer or distributor, and 
exerts every effort to make it possible for the North Carolina resi- 
dents to be placed on a fair and equal footing in meeting com- 
petition. The law does not permit more than that. 



THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMISSION 

Chapter 60, P. L. 1931 

Composition: Nine members. The State Auditor, the State 
Treasurer and Commissioner of Revenue are members ex officio. 
The other six members are appointed by the Governor, one of

State Auditor, the State Treasurer, the Commissioner of Revenue 
and the Director of Local Government constitute the Executive

the Commission except when the Commission is in session, 
but the Committee cannot over-ride any action of the Com- 
mission as a whole, and appeals may be made from action of the 
Executive Committee to the whole Commission. The Commission 
approves the issuance of all bonds and notes of local units of 
government, and sells all such bonds and notes. The Director 
requires semi-annual reports of sinking fund investments of local 
units and orders liquidation of all such investments which by law 
are ineligible. If it appears to the Director that funds of local units 
deposited in banks are not under the proper security for the pro- 
tection of such deposits as prescribed by law, he shall require such 
security The Commission may extend the time of liquidation of 
ineligible sinking fund investments and may, upon approval of the 
State Commissioner of Banks, extend the time for banks to suffi- 
ciently secure deposits with proper security. The Director deter- 
mines whether the provisions of law for the raising and main- 
tenance and preservation of sinking funds of local units have been 
observed, and requires compliance with these provisions. He also 
notifies, thirty days in advance, all local units of their maturing 
obligations and furnishes annually a statement of debt service re- 
quirements for the ensuing fiscal year. The Director approves all 
auditing contracts between officials of local units and certified 
public accountants for auditing the affairs of such units, and also 
approves all bills for the payment of such services rendered. The 
County Government Advisory Commission was abolished at the 
creation of the Local Government Commission and its duties are 
imposed upon the Director. The Director shall visit the local units 
of government in the State, and advise and assist the governing 
bodies and other officers of said units in providing a competent, 
economical and efficient administration; suggest approved methods 
for levying and collecting taxes and other revenues; suggest such 
changes in the organization of local units of government as will 



University Consolidation Commission 45 

best promote the public interest, and render assistance in carrying 
the same into effect. The Director has the power to devise and 
prepare for use in the local units uniform accounting and recording 
system and to require their use. The Director approves the bonds 
of County Treasurers for county and local district school funds.

PART III 



PLATFORMS AND POLITICAL PARTIES 1932 



1. Democratic National Platform. 

2. Republican National Platform. 

3. State Democratic Platform. 

4. State Republican Platform. 



DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL PLATFORM 

Adopted at Chicago, June 29, 1932 



In this time of unprecedented and social distress, the Democratic 
party declares its convictions that the chief causes of this condition 
were the disastrous policies pursued by our government, since the 
World War, of economic isolation; fostering the merger of com- 
petitive businesses into monopolies; and encouraging the indefensi- 
ble expansion and contraction of credit for private profit at the ex- 
pense of the public. 

Those who were responsible for these policies have abandoned 
the ideals on which the war was won, and thrown away the fruits 
of victory, thus rejecting the greatest opportunity in history to bring 
peace, prosperity and happiness to our people and to the world. 

They have ruined our foreign trade, destroyed the values of our 
commodities and products, crippled our banking system, robbed 
millions of our people of their life savings and thrown millions 
more out of work, produced widespread poverty and brought the 
government to a state of financial distress unprecedented in times 
of peace. 

The only hope for improving present conditions, restoring em- 
ployment, affording permanent relief to the people, and bringing 
the nation back to its former proud position of domestic happiness 
and of financial, industrial, agricultural and commercial leadership 
in the world, lies in a drastic change in economic and govern- 
mental policies. 

Believing that a party platform is a covenant with the people 
to be faithfully kept by the party when entrusted with power, and 
that the people are entitled to know in plain words the terms of 
the contract to which they are asked to subscribe, we hereby 
declare this to be the platform of the Democratic Party. 

The Democratic Party solemnly promises by appropriate action 
to put into effect the principles, policies and reforms herein advo- 
cated, and to eradicate the policies, methods and practices herein 
condemned: 



52 Political Platforms 

Steps Advocated 

We advocate: 

1. An immediate and drastic reduction of governmental expendi- 
tures by abolishing useless commissions and offices, consolidating 
departments and bureaus, and eliminating extravagance, to accom- 
plish a saving of not less than 25 per cent in the cost of federal 
government; and we call upon the Democratic Party in the states 
to make a zealous effort to achieve a proportionate result. 

2. Maintenance of the national credit by a federal budget an- 
nually balanced on the basis of accurate estimates within revenues, 
raised by a system of taxation levied on the principle of ability 
to pay. 

3. A sound currency to be preserved at all hazards; and an 
international monetary conference called on the invitation of our 
government to consider the rehabilitation of silver and related ques- 
tions. 

4. A competitive tariff for revenue, with a fact-finding tariff 
commission free from executive interference; reciprocal tariff 
agreements with other nations; and an international economic 
conference designed to restore international trade and facilitate 
exchange. 

Credit to States 

5. Extension of federal credit to the states to provide unemploy- 
ment relief wherever the diminishing resources of the states make 
it impossible for them to provide for the needy; expansion of the 
federal program of necessary and useful construction affected with 
a public interest; such as flood control and waterways, including 
the St. Lawrence-Great Lakes deep waterways; the spread of em- 
ployment by a substantial reduction in the hours of labor, the 
encouragement of the shorter week by applying that principle in 
government service; advance planning of public works. 

6. Unemployment and old-age insurance, under state laws. 

7. For the restoration of agriculture, the Nation's basic indus- 
try; better financing of farm mortgages through re-organized farm 
bank agencies at low rates of interest, on an amortization prSn. 
giving preference to credits for the redemption of farms and homes 
sold under foreclosure; extension and development of the farm 
cooperative movement, and effective control of crop surpluses so 
that our farmers may have the full benefit of the domestic market; 



Democratic National Platfok.m 53 

enactment of every constitutional measure that will aid the farmers 
to receive for basic farm commodities, prices in excess of cost. 

8. A navy and an army adequate for national defense, based on 
a survey of all facts affecting the existing establishments, that the 
people in time of peace may not be burdened by an expenditure 
fast approaching a billion dollars annually. 

Anti-Trust Laws 

9. Strict and impartial enforcement of the anti-trust laws to 
prevent monopoly and unfair trade practices, and revision thereof 
for the better protection of labor and the small producer and dis- 
tributor; the removal of government from all fields of private en- 
terprise, except where necessary to develop public works and 
natural resources in the common interest; conservation develop- 
ment and use of the Nation's water-power in the public interest. 

10. We favor the repeal of the 18th Amendment. 

To effect such repeal, we demand that the Congress immediately 
propose a constitutional amendment to purely representative con- 
ventions in the states called to act solely on that proposal. 

We urge the enactment of such measures by the several states 
as will actually promote temperance, effectively prevent the return 
of the saloon and bring the liquor traffic into the open under com- 
plete supervision and control by the states. 

We demand that the federal government exercise its power to 
enable the states to effectually protect themselves against importa- 
tion of intoxicating liquors in violation of their laws. 

Pending repeal, we favor immediate modification of the Vol- 
stead Act to legalize the manufacture and sale of beer and other 
beverages of such alcoholic content as is permissible under the 
Constitution and to provide therefrom a proper and needed revenue. 

Protect Investors 

11. Protection of the investing public by requiring to be filed 
with the government and carried in advertisements of all offerings 
of foreign and domestic stocks and bonds true information as to 
bonuses, commissions, principal invested and interests of sellers. 

Regulation to the full extent of the federal power of 
(A) Holding companies which sell securities in interstate com- 
merce. 



54- Political Platforms 

(B) Rates of utility companies operating across state lines. 

(C) Exchanges trading in securities and commodities. 

12. Quicker methods of realizing on assets for the relief of 
depositors of suspended banks and a more rigid supervision of 
national banks for the protection of depositors and the prevention 
of the use of their moneys in speculation to the detriment of local 
credits. 

The severance of affiliated securities companies and the divorce 
of the investment banking from commercial banks; and further 
restriction of federal reserve banks in permitting the use of federal 
reserve facilities for speculative purposes. 

13. The full measure of justice and generosity for all war veterans 
who have suffered disability or disease caused by or resulting from 
actual service in time of war, and for their dependents. 

Foreign Policy 

14. A firm foreign policy including: Peace with all the world 
and the settlement of international disputes by arbitration; no 
interference in the international affairs of other nations; the 
sanctity of treaties, and maintenance of good faith and of good- 
will in financial obligations; adherence to the World Court with 
the pending reservations; the Pact of Paris abolishing war as an 
instrument of national policy, to be made effective by provisions 
for consultation and conference in case of threatened violation of 
treaties; international agreement for reduction of armaments; 
and co-operation with nations of the Western Hemisphere to main- 
tain the spirit of the Monroe Doctrine. 

We oppose cancellation of the debts owing to the United States 
by foreign nations. 

15. Independence for the Philippines; ultimate statehood for 
Porto Rico; the employment of American citizens in the operation 
of the Panama Canal. 

16. Simplification of legal procedure and reorganization of the 
judicial system to make the attainment of justice speedy, certain 
and at less cost. 

17. Continuous publicity of political contributions and expendi- 
tures, strengthening of the corrupt practices act, and severe pen- 
alties for misappropriation of campaign funds. 



Democratic National Platform 55 

Things Condemned 

We condemn: 

1. The improper and excessive use of money in political activ- 
ities. 

2. Paid lobbies of special interests to influence members of Con- 
gress and other public servants by personal contact. 

3. Action and utterances of high public officials designed to 
influence stock exchange prices. 

4. The open and covert resistance of administrative officials to 
every effort made by Congressional committees to curtail the ex- 
travagant expenditures of the government, and to revoke improvi- 
dent subsidies granted to favored interests. 

5. The extravagance of the Farm Board, its disastrous action 
which made the government a speculator in farm products, and the 
unsound policy of restricting agricultural production to the demands 
of domestic markets. 

6. The usurpation of power by the State Department in assum- 
ing to pass upon foreign securities offered by international bankers, 
as a result of which billions of dollars in questionable bonds have 
been sold to the public upon the implied approval of the federal 
government. 

7. The Hawley-Smoot tariff law, the prohibitive rates of which 
have resulted in retaliatory action by more than 40 countries, 
created international economic hostilities, destroyed international 
trade, driven our factories into foreign countries, robbed the 
American farmer of his foreign markets and increased his cost of 
production. 

Conclusion : 

To accomplish these purposes and to recover economic liberty, 
we pledge the nominees of this convention and the best effort of a 
great party whose founder announced the doctrine which guides 
us now, in the hour of our country's need — "Equal rights to all. 
special privileges to none." 



REPUBLICAN NATIONAL PLATFORM (Condensed) 

Adopted at Chicago, June 15, 1932 



Introduction 

We meet in a period of widespread distress and of an economic 
depression that has swept the world. The emergency is second 
only to that of a great war. The human suffering occasioned may 
well exceed that of a period of actual conflict. 

The supremely important problem that challenges our citizens 
and government alike is to break the back of the depression, to 
restore the economic life of the nation and to bring encourage- 
ment and relief to the thousands of American families that are 
sorely afflicted. 

The people themselves, by their own courage, their own patient 
and resolute effort in the readjustment of their own affairs, can 
and will work out the cure. It is our task as a party, by leadership 
and a wise determination of policy, to assist that recovery. 

To that task, we pledge all that our party possesses in capacity, 
leadership, resourcefulness and ability. 

We have in the White House a leader — wise, courageous, patient, 
understanding, resourceful, ever-present at his post of duty, tireless 
in his efforts and unswervingly faithful to American principles 
and ideals. 

Throughout the depression unemployment has been limited by 
the systematic use of part time employment as a substitute for the 
general discharge of employes. Wage scales have not been reduced 
except under compelling necessity. As a result there have been 
fewer strikes and less social disturbance than during any similar 
period of hard times. 

Believe Distress 

During the trying winters of 1930-31 and 1932 a nation-wide or- 
ganization to relieve distress Avas brought into being under the 
leadership of the President. By the spring of 1931 the possibility 
of a business upturn in the United States was clearly discernible 
when, suddenly, a train of events was set in motion in Central 
Europe which moved forward with extraordinary rapidity and 



Kepublican National Platform 57 

violence, threatening the credit structure of the world, and even- 
tually dealing a serious hlow to this country. 

The President foresaw the danger. He sought to avert it by 
proposing a suspension of intergovernmental debt payments for one 
year. But the credit machinery of the nations of Central Europe 
could not withstand the strain, and the forces of disintegration 
continued to gain momentum until in September Great Britain 
was forced to depart from the gold standard. This momentous 
event, followed by a tremendous raid on the dollar, resulted in a 
series of bank suspensions in this country, and the hoarding of 
currency on a large scale. 

Again the President acted. Under his leadership, the National 
Credit Association came into being. It mobilized banking resources, 
saved scores of banks from failure, helped restore confidence, and 
proved of inestimable value in strengthening the credit structure. 

In his message to Congress, the President outlined a constructive 
and definite program which in the main has been carried out; other 
portions may yet be carried out. 

The Railroad Credit Corporation was created. The capital of the 
federal land banks was increased. The Reconstruction Finance 
Corporation came into being, and brought protection to millions of 
depositors, policy-holders and others. 

Raids on Dollar 

Legislation was enacted enlarging the discount facilities of the 
Federal Reserve System, and without reducing the legal reserves 
of the Federal Reserve banks, releasing a billion dollars of gold, 
a formidable protection against raids on the dollar and a greatly 
enlarged basis for an expansion of credit. An earlier distribution 
to depositors in closed banks has been brought about through the 
action of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Above all the 
national credit has been placed in an impregnable position by pro- 
vision for adequate revenue and a program of drastic curtailment 
of expenditures. All of these measures were designed to lay a 
foundation for the resumption of business and increased employ- 
ment. But delay and the constant introduction and consideration 
of new and unsound measures has kept the country in a state of 
uncertainty and fear, and offset much of the good otherwise accom- 
plished. 



58 Political Platforms 

The President has recently supplemented his original program. 
To provide for distress, to stimulate the revival of business and em- 
ployment, and to improve the agricultural situation, he recom- 
mended extending the authority of the Reconstruction Finance 
Corporation to enable it: 

Hoover Program 

(A) To make loans to political sub-divisions of public bodies or 
private corporations for the purpose of starting construction of 
income-producing or self-liquidating projects which will at once 
increase employment; 

(B) To make loans upon security of agricultural commodities so 
as to insure the carrying of normal stocks of those commodities, 
and thus stabilize their loan value and price levels; 

(C) To make loans to the Federal Farm Board to enable exten- 
sion of loans to farm cooperatives and loans for export of agri- 
cultural commodities to quarters unable otherwise to purchase them; 

(D) To loan up to $300,000,000 to such states as are unable to 
meet the calls made on them by their citizens for distress relief. 

The President's program contemplates an attack on a broad 
front, with far-reaching objectives, but entailing no danger to the 
budget. The Democratic program, on the other hand, contemplates 
a heavy expenditure of public funds, a budget unbalanced on ;i 
large scale, with a doubtful attainment of at best a strictly limited 
objective. 

We strongly endorse the President's program. 

Unemployment and Relief 

The relief problem is one of State and local responsibility. The 
work of local agencies, public and private, have been coordinated 
and enlarged on a nation-wide scale under the leadership of the 
President. Sudden and unforeseen emergencies such as the drought 
have been met by the Red Cross and the government. 

The President has urged Congress to create an emergency relief 
fund to be loaned temporarily to any State. 

The Republican party endorses this record and policy and is op- 
posed to the Federal government entering directly into the field of 
private charity. 



Republican National Platform .".:> 

Public Economy 

Constructive plans for financial stabilization cannot be com- 
pletely organized until our national, State and municipal govern- 
ments not only balance their budgets, but curtail their current ex- 
penses to a level which can be steadily and economically maintained 
for some years to come. 

We urge prompt and drastic reduction of public expenditure and 
resistance to every appropriation not demonstrably necessary to the 
performance of the essential functions of government. 

The Dollar 

The Republican party established and will continue to uphold 
the gold standard and will oppose any measure which will under- 
mine the government's credit or impair the integrity of our na- 
tional currency. Relief by currency inflation is unsound in prin- 
ciple and dishonest in results. 

Banks and Banking System 

There is need of revising the banking laws so as to place our 
banking structure on a sounder basis. For the better protection 
of the depositing public there should be more stringent supervision 
and broader powers vested in the supervising authorities. 

One of the serious problems affecting our banking system has 
arisen from the practice of organizing separate corporations under 
and controlled by the same interests as banks, but participating in 
operations which the banks themselves are not permitted legally 
to undertake. We favor requiring reports of and subjecting to 
thorough and periodic examination all such affiliates until adequate 
information has been acquired so the problem may definitely be 
solved. 

International Conference 

We favor the participation by the United States in an interna- 
tional conference to consider matters relating (o monetary ques- 
tions, including the position of silver, exchange problems, and 
commodity prices, and possible cooperative action concerning them. 

Home Loan Discount Bank System for the Benefit of Home Owners 

of the United States 

The plank favors the creation of a system of federally-supervised 
home loan discount banks, designed to serve the home owners of all 



60 Political Platforms 

parts of the country and to encourage home ownership hy making 
possible long term credits for homes on more stable and more 
favorable terms. 

There has arisen in the last few years a disturbing trend away 
from home ownership. We believe that everything possible should 
be done by governmental agencies, national, state and local, to 
reverse this tendency. 

Agriculture 

Farm distress blamed on expansion of agricultural production 
during the war, deflation of 1919-20 and dislocation of markets 
after the war. 

Republican administrations have passed legislation promoting co- 
operatives and farm credit. Party has redeemed pledges of 192S 
for farm tariffs and creation of federal farm board. 

The farm board has increased cooperative marketing and made 
credit available. American farmer has received higher prices for 
his products than the farmer of any competing nation. 

Republican party also made possible loans to drought areas, pro- 
vided employment by road building, developed inland water sys- 
tem and recapitalized federal land banks. 

The party pledges itself to revise tariffs to maintain parity of 
protection to agriculture with other industry. 

The time has come for reconsideration of tax systems, federal, 
state, and local, relieving unjust burdens. 

The fundamental problem of American agriculture is the control 
of production to such volume as will balance supply with demand. 

The Tariff 

Because marny foreign countries have recently abandoned the gold 
standard, lowering costs of many commodities in terms of American 
currency, adequate tariff protection is today particularly essential. 
The tariff commission should promptly investigate individual com- 
modities so affected by currency depreciation, and report to the 
President any increase in duties found necessary to equalize domestic 
with foreign costs of production. 

Policy of a flexible tariff, giving power to the President to modify 
rates is supported. 

We favor the extension of the general Republican principle of 
tariff protection to natural resource industries, including products 



Republican National Platform R1 

of farms, forests, mines and oil wells with compensatory duties on 
the manufactured and refined products thereof. 

Yeterans 

Increased hospital facilities have been provided, payments in 
compensation have more than doubled, and generous provisions made 
in rehabilitations, pensions and insurance. 

We believe that every veteran incapacitated in any degree by 
reason of illness or injuries attributable to service in defense of 
his country should be cared for and compensated, so far as com- 
pensation is possible, and that the dependents of those who lost 
their lives in war or whose death since the war in which service 
was rendered is traceable to service causes, should be provided for 
adequately. 

A careful study should be made of existing veterans legislation 
with a view to eliminating inequalities and injustices and effecting 
all possible economies. 

Our relations with foreign nations have been carried on by Presi- 
dent Hoover with consistency and firmness but with mutual under- 
standing and peace with all nations. The party will continue to 
maintain its attitude of protecting our national interests and poli- 
cies wherever threatened but at the same time promoting common 
understanding of the varying needs and aspirations of other nations 
and going forward in harmony with other peoples without alliances 
or foreign partnerships. The facilitation of world intercourse, the 
freeing of commerce from unnecessary impediments, the settlement 
of international difficulties by conciliation and the methods of law, 
and the elimination of war as a resort of national policy have been 
and will be our party program. 

Friendship and Commerce 

We believe in and look forward to the steady enlargement of the 
principles of equality of treatment between nations. 

The American policy known as the "most favored nation prin- 
ciple" has been our guiding program and we believe that policy to 
be the only one consistent with a full development of international 
trade. 

Throughout the controversy in the Far East, the President and his 
.secretary of state have maintained a just balance between Japan 



ft-2 Political Platforms 

and China. Throughout the controversy our government has acted 
in harmony with the governments represented in the League of Na- 
tions, always making it clear that American policy would be de- 
termined at home but always lending a hand in the common in- 
terest of peace and order. 

In the application of the Kellogg pact the American government 
has taken the lead, following the principle that a breach of the pact 
or a threat of infringement thereof was a matter of international 
concern. 

We favor enactment by Congress of a measure that will authorize 
our government to call or participate in an international conference 
in case of any threat of non-fulfillment of Article 2 of the treaty 
of Paris (Kellogg-Briand) pact. 

Latin America 

The policy of the administration has proved to our neighbors of 
Latin-America that we have no imperialistic ambitions but that we 
wish only to promote the welfare and common interest of the in- 
dependent nations in the western hemisphere. 

World Court 

We commend the World Court for the settlement of international 
disputes by the rule of law. America should join its influence. 

Reduction of Armament 

In the Geneva disarmament conference America is an active par- 
ticipant. This policy will be pursued. 

Maintenance of our navy on the basis of parity with any nation 
is a fundamental policy to which the Republican party is committed. 

National Defense 

We support the essential principles of the national defense act 
as amended in 1920 and by the Air Corps act of 1926, and believe 
that the army of the United States has through successive reduc- 
tions, accomplished in the last 12 years, reached the irreducible 
minimum consistent with the self-reliance, self-respect and security 
of the country. 

Wages and Work 

For the principle of high wages, the shorter working week and 
work day for government and private employment.

home building. 

Immigration

Republican National Platform 65 

Reorganization of Government Bureaus 

Reorganization of government bureaus through legislation which 
will give the President the required authority. 

Democratic Failure 

The vagaries of the present Democratic House of Representatives 
offer characteristic and appalling proof of the existing incapacity 
of that party for leadership in a national crisis. Individualism run- 
ning amuck has displaced party discipline and has trampled under- 
foot party leadership. A bewildered electorate has viewed the 
spectacle with profound dismay and deep misgivings. 

Goaded to desperation by their confessed failure, the party leaders 
have resorted to "pork barrel" legislation to obtain a unity of 
action which could not otherwise be achieved. 

Party Government 

Only by united party action can consistent, well-planned and 
wholesome legislative programs be enacted. Without it, election 
under a party aegis becomes a false pretense. We earnestly re- 
quest that Republicans throughout the Union demand that their 
representatives in Congress pledge themselves to the end that the 
insidious influence of party disintegration may not undermine the 
very foundations of the republic. 

The Eighteenth Amendment 

The Republican party has always stood and stands today for 
obedience to and enforcement of the law as the very foundation of 
orderly government and civilization. There can be no national 
security otherwise. The duty of the President of the United States 
and of the officers of the law is clear. The law must be enforced 
as they find it enacted by the people. To these courses of action 
we pledge our nominees. 

The Republican party is and always has been the party of the 
Constitution. Nullification by non-observance by individuals or 
State action threatens the stability of government. 

While the constitution makers sought a high degree of perma- 
nence, they foresaw the need of changes and provided for them. 
Article V limits the proposals of amendments to two methods: (1) 
two-thirds of both houses of Congress may propose amendments; or 

5 



06 Political Platforms 

(2) on application of the Legislatures of two-thirds of the States a 
national convention shall be called by Congress to propose amend- 
ments. Thereafter ratification must be had in one of two ways: 

(1) by the Legislatures of three-fourths of the several states or 

(2) by conventions held in three-fourths of the several states. Con- 
gress is given power to determine the mode of ratification. 

Referendums without constitutional sanction cannot furnish a 
decisive answer. Those who propose them innocently are deluded 
by false hopes; those who propose them knowingly are deceiving 
t lie people. 

A nationwide controversy over the Eighteenth Amendment now 
distracts attention from the constructive solution of many pressing 
national problems. The principle of national prohibition as em- 
bodied in the amendment was supported and opposed by members 
of both great political parties. It was submitted to the states by 
members of Congress of different political faiths and ratified by 
state legislatures of different political majorities. It was not then 
and is now not a partisan political question. 

Members of the Republican party hold different opinions with 
respect to it and no public official or member of the party should 
be pledged or forced to choose between his party affiliations and 
his honest convictions upon this question. 

We do not favor a submission limited to the issue of retention or 
repeal. For the American nation never in its history has gone 
backward, and in this case the progress which has been thus far 
made must be preserved, while the evils must be eliminated. 

We, therefore, believe that the people should have an opportunity 
to pass upon a proposed amendment the provisions of which, while 
retaining in the Federal Government power to preserve the gains 
already made in dealing with the evils inherent in the liquor traffic, 
shall allow states to deal with the problem as their citizens may 
determine, but subject always to the power of the Federal Govern- 
ment to protect those states where prohibition may exist and safe- 
guard our citizens everywhere from the return of the saloon and 
attendant abuses. 

Such an amendment should be promptly submitted to the states 
by Congress, to be acted upon by state conventions called for that 
sole purpose in accordance with the provisions of Article V of 



Democratic State Platform t!7 

the Constitution, and adequately safeguarded so as to be truly 
representative. 

Conclusion 

"The Republican party faces the future unafraid. 

"With courage and confidence in ultimate success, we will strive 
against the forces that strike at our social and economic ideals, our 
political institutions." 



DEMOCRATIC STATE PLATFORM 

Adopted at Raleigh, June 16, 1932 



The platform adopted by the Democratic State Convention fol- 
lows in full: 

The Democratic Party in North Carolina refers to its record of 
one hundred years of fidelity to the principle that the government 
is derived from the people and must ever be administered for their 
welfare. It was the Democratic Party that first raised the standard 
of manhood suffrage in this commonwealth; that when occasion 
demanded, established the rule of white supremacy; that set up 
the legalized primary and the Australian Secret Ballot system; 
that gave to women the full right and power of the suffrage. 

The Democracy of North Carolina faces the challenge of the 
difficult present in prideful consciousness of its record of service 
in the past. Suffering sorely, as the nation does under economic 
afflictions largely contributed to by the mistakes and misguided 
policies of a Republican national administration, the nation seeks 
and cries aloud for a way out of its distress. In such circumstances 
we point with pride to the hope which lies in the eternal principles 
to which our party has dedicated its life and effort. For the people 
remember the golden era of Democracy's last years of ascendancy 
in the nation; the people remember the political false pretenses 
put forward by the Republicans' high command in the years gone 
by; the people remember the broken promises of relief to distressed 
agriculture, harassed industry and jobless laborers in the nation. 
and so remembering, the people will punish those who have misled 
them in the past. 

The record of service in North Carolina is the surest guarantee 
of Democratic good faith and constructive leadership. The con- 



68 Political Platforms 

tribution which our party has made to the development of our so- 
cial, economic and political welfare has been unparalleled. Througli 
Democratic sponsorship and support has come practically every 
advance which the last quarter of a century has witnessed — an 
advance which has challenged the admiration of our sister states. 

In the last four years, also, governmental agencies have been 
maintained in efficiency and honesty; the cause of education and 
health has been greatly promoted and conserved ; our highways 
have been developed and maintained to the point of an unparal- 
leled efficiency; the tax burden on property and people has been 
greatly lightened and, with all, the total public debt, including the 
accumulated current deficit, has been reduced by approximately 
$12,000,000 in spite of the Republican panic which has been upon us. 

The Democracy of the State in convention assembled endorses 
the administration of Governor O. Max Gardner and points with 
pride to the record of the party's achievement during the present 
administration and endorses that record, legislative and executive, 
as a fine, constructive and patriotic contribution to the welfare 
and upbuilding of the commonwealth. 

State Policies 

The present State administration has met a most difficult situa- 
tion with wisdom and resource worthy of the best traditions of the 
Democratic Party. 

Constructive Measures 

We especially commend: 

The taking over of the maintenance by the State of the public 
schools for the constitutional term of six months, and the taking 
over of all the public roads by the State Highway Commission. 
These two constructive measures have resulted in the greatest tax 
reduction to land and home owners ever accomplished at one time 
in the history of North Carolina — amounting to an average annual 
reduction in the property tax rate of 40c in the counties of the 
State, and in the gross sum of approximately $12,000,000 per annum. 

The centralizing of the purchasing department of the State, and 
the economies produced in government by the Department of Per- 
sonnel. 

The consolidation and coordination of the State's higher insti- 
tutions of learning resulting in greater efficiency and economy. 



Democratic State Platform 69 

The reorganization of the banking system of the State. 

These and other major achievements mark the greatest advance 
in the State's history in economy administration, and in reducing 
the total volume of taxation. They also reflect the larger unity of 
the commonwealth in constructive progress. They shine by con- 
trast with the vacillating, inadequate and dismal course pursued 
in the same period by the national Republican administration. 
It is significant that these policies have drawn national attention 
to North Carolina and many states are following her example. 

The Party's Program 

With an abiding faith in the courage of the people of our com- 
monwealth, the Democratic Party pledges itself to a continuance 
of a program of constructive and helpful service, and to this end 
we pledge: 

1. An immediate revaluation of property throughout the State 
at its true value in money, to the end that inequality and injustice 
may be avoided. 

2. The removal of the 15 cent property tax now levied for the 
support of the six-months public school term. 

3. We recognize the prime importance of preserving the credit 
of the State, and to that end the budget must be balanced. 

4. The maintenance of the public school system and our higher 
institutions of learning in a state of efficiency, thus guaranteeing 
to every boy and girl in North Carolina the opportunity "to bur- 
geon out all that there is within them." 

5. The promotion of public health and welfare. 

6. The care of the unfortunate and helpless in our humanitarian 
institutions. 

7. A program of strict economy in every department and agency 
of the State government, including the discontinuance of any gov- 
ernmental agency which is not rendering a necessary and indis- 
pensable public service, or saving money for the taxpayers of 
the State. 

8. It has always been the policy of our party to levy no taxes 
except for the necessary expenses of efficient government, and in 
this time of universal distress, we pledge every reasonable effort 
for the reduction of governmental expenses and the avoidance of 
the additional taxes.

ft. The Democratic Party always has been responsive to the will 
of the people, and, in obedience thereto, has sponsored and enacted 
all the prohibition laws of North Carolina. Recognizing, however, 
the right of the people, in a legal way to amend the Constitution 
of the United States at their pleasure, and to vote on all ques- 
tions at issue, we declare our party stands firmly for the enforce- 
ment of these laws and every provision of the Federal Constitu- 
tion, so long as it remains the law of the land. 

10. We pledge a continuance of our policy of frank recognition 
of the rights of both capital and labor, and a broader distribution 
of employment as a means to a satisfactory and sustaining progress 
of industrial development, and a more wholesome industrial life in 
this State. We endorse the legislation along this line enacted by 
the last Legislature, and commend the Democratic leadership re- 
sponsible for it. We pledge ourselves to the enforcement of these 
and other laws. 

11. We face, without dismay, the difficult task of maintaining 
under existing circumstances, the high standard of the State's in- 
stitutions. These institutions are the pride and hope of our people. 
They are conducted by noble and patriotic men and women. If 
for the present we appear to have arrested our progress, the 
pause is not by way of abandoning our noble ideals, but of fortifying 
ourselves with them. 

The State's Representatives in Congress 

We commend the record of our servants in the National Con- 
gress. They have been faithful to their duties, true to their party, 
and have proved themselves worthy representatives of Democracy. 

Invitation 

The hour calls for the return of the Democratic Party to power 
throughout the republic. In the coming election the Republican 
Party will be condemned at the polls by the victims of its false 
pretense and its disastrous policies. It has forgotten the masses 
of the people, and they will welcome the opportunity to repudiate it. 
Every aspect of the present situation demands the appreciation of 
Democratic principles, that is, 

(a) Simplicity of government. 

(b) Economical administration. 



Republican State Platform 71 

(c) Equal rights to all, and special privileges to none. 

(d) Special regard for the welfare of the farmer and worker. 

(e) The encouragement of commerce and industry, and the pres- 
ervation of industry and initiative. 

(f) Free foreign relations on a basis of mutual interest in the 
commerce of the world. 

(g) The restoration of the Democratic principles of Woodrow 
Wilson in the management of the Federal Reserve Banking system, 
and the prevention of the use of its great resources for the promo- 
tion of stock gambling and wild speculation. 

This government needs now a great Democrat to deliver it and 
lead it, one cast in the mold of a Jackson or a Wilson. Our na- 
tional convention will present such an one to the nation, and in 
less than 12 months the Republican Party will be driven from the 
power of Presidency and of the Congress, and Democracy will apply 
her great principles to the deliverance and relief of the people. 

To this end we invite all who would deliver our country from 
the evil and destructive forces which have come upon it under 
Republican rule to join us in the coming election. 



STATE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM 

Adopted at Charlotte, April 14, 1932 



When a political party invites support from the people, that 
party should in good conscience and by plain words make known 
to the people the policies, principles and ideals for which it stands. 
The people have the right to know in what manner and by what 
means a. party proposes to carry on the public business, if placed in 
power. 

It has always been the policy of the Republican party to take a 
definite stand upon public questions, and to state frankly its posi- 
tion. We believe that it is evident to all thinking people that there 
are now certain financial, political and economic problems facing 
the people of North Carolina which must be solved quickly and 
solved rightly, if the honor and integrity of our State is to be 
preserved and the interests of our people protected. 



72 Political Platforms 

Therefore, the Republican party of North Carolina in convention 
assembled, reposing its trust in the honor, intelligence and sense 
of justice of the people of our State, publicly declares, by the fol- 
lowing platform, the position of the party upon the questions of 
vital import confronting the people of our State at this time. 

We take this occasion to record our estimate and approval of the 
administration of that wise leader and profound statesman, Presi- 
dent Herbert Hoover. In the midst of a period of world-wide eco- 
nomic depression, social disorder and political upheaval which has 
witnessed national riots, violent revolutions and the fall of gov- 
ernments in other parts of the world, President Hoover, in spite 
of partisan and personal attacks more scandalous than any Presi- 
dent has had to endure for more than half a century, by his su- 
perior skill, courageous statesmanship and persevering devotion to 
duty, has directed for our Republic a course of safety and security. 
With a spirit of tolerance toward the little-minded partisans and 
the vicious-minded mongers of manufactured scandal, barking and 
snapping at his every effort, the President has succeeded in fighting 
back from our shores the forces and conditions that have destroyed 
governments abroad. It has been the spirit and genius of Herbert 
Hoover, supported by the faith and confidence of patriotic, sane 
thinking and sound-hearted Americans, that has saved our Re- 
public in this world crisis. The good people of North Carolina 
contributed in the gift of this great man to the nation. We take 
pride in the record he has made and we pledge to him our con- 
tinued confidence, cooperation and support. 

We rededicate and reconsecrate ourselves to the principles of the 
Republican party heretofore so often written into its platforms 
and woven into the history of our country. The Republican party 
is now and has always been the party of the people and has ever 
striven to give to every man, regardless of his station in life, the 
full protection of his rights as an American citizen. 

Democratic Extrayagance and Misrule 

We do not deem it necessary to record here our condemnation 
of the many failures and false policies of the Democratic party 
in the administration of the affairs of our State; nor do we feel 
it necessary to state here our protests against the gross extrava- 



Republican State Platfok.m 73 

gance and waste of the people's money by the Democratic policies 
and office-holders of our State. 

The people know about these things. They have borne their ever 
increasing burden of Democratic misrule until it has become in- 
tolerable. The people have awakened to the sad and lamentable 
fact that the Democratic party in this State can not be trusted to 
give the people a conservative, just and safe administration of 
their affairs. 

The people know that the Democratic policies of preaching and 
promising economy, and at the same time practicing the most 
inexcusable extravagance, has brought the State of North Carolina 
face to face with the prospect of financial disaster. 

The people do not have to be told that the credit of the State 
is destroyed and that its bonds are now selling at the disgraceful 
figure of eighty-six (86) cents on the dollar. 

The people know that in 1919 the Democratic administration 
promised the people that its plans for revaluation of real property 
would greatly reduce the tax rate and relieve the burden of high 
taxes. The people have learned that this promise was false, and 
they know now that their property — their farms and homes — are 
valued for taxation at two or three times their real worth and 
that the tax rate has been more than doubled instead of being 
decreased, as promised. 

The people know that under Democratic rule the State and local 
debt amounts to more than five hundred million dollars, or a 
total of one hundred and eighty-three dollars ($183.00) per capita 
for every man, woman and child, white and colored in the State 
of North Carolina, and that on a comparative basis of State wealth, 
this debt exceeds many times the debt of any other State in the 
Union. 

The people know that the cost of government in North Caro- 
lina has multiplied four times within the past ten years and that 
this unheard of increase is due, in a large measure, to the unwise 
policies and extravagance on the part of our public officials. 

The people know that our Democratic state officials have for a 
long time been borrowing money and paying as high as six per cent 
therefor to pay the running expenses of the State, and the people 
know that the present administration ceased borrowing money 
and increasing the public debt only when it had so impaired the 



74 Political Platforms 

credit of the State that it could no longer borrow in the money 
market. 

The people know that the orgy of waste and reckless spending 
of their money by the Democratic administration in North Caro- 
lina has spread into practically every county, city and town in 
the State, and that today many of these units are bankrupt and 
are having to suffer the disgrace of defaulting on their debts. 

The people know that innumerable offices have been created with 
fat salaries to pay political debts to "worthy Democrats," and they 
know that departments, bureaus, boards and commissions have 
been increased and multiplied in number until it has become dif- 
ficult for a citizen to know where and how or by whom, the busi- 
ness of the State is being transacted; and they know that the ex- 
penses of government have been increased beyond all reason while 
the people themselves have been forced to toil and struggle under 
an oppressive burden of taxation to pay the salaries of this great 
army of office holders, whose principal official function is to raid 
the State treasury with their pay checks. 

The people do not have to be told that within the past three or 
four years their homes, which represented their life savings, have 
been sold from over their heads by the tens and hundreds of thou- 
sand because they could not meet the excessive and burdensome 
taxes exacted from them to supply the means of Democratic ex- 
travagance and mismanagement. 

The people know that land values in North Carolina have been 
destroyed; that industry has been retarded; and property owners 
discouraged, by the mounting expense of government, and alarm- 
ing increase from year to year in the taxes they have to pay. 

The people know that the burden of taxation has become for 
them a yoke of economic slavery under which they must toil and 
suffer as long as the Democratic party rules in this State. 

The people know that what North Carolina needs at this time 
more than anything else is not new sources of taxation, so much 
as it is new ideas of economy, and a new brand of conscience in Its 
political leaders, its Governors, office holders and law makers. 

The people do not have to be told that they have lost millions 
upon millions of dollars, the savings of their toil and sacrifice 
through the failure of banks from one end of the State to the other, 
and that a great majority of these failures was the direct result 



Republican State Platfohm 75 

of the gross incompetence, criminal negligence, and loose methods 
of supervision by the state banking authorities. The people know 
that as recently as two years ago the Platform of the Republican 
party in this State protested against these methods and warned 
the State authorities, as well as the people, of what would neces- 
sarily happen unless these shameful conditions were remedied. 
This warning was not heeded, and today we witness the melan- 
choly result which has brought financial collapse and indescribable 
agony and distress to practically every community in our Com- 
monwealth. 

The people know that our public school system of North Caro- 
lina and the State highway organization have been shamefully con- 
verted into partisan, political machines, notwithstanding the fact 
that it has been repeatedly promised that they should always be 
kept non-partisan; and the people know that this misuse and 
abuse of these organizations has seriously affected their efficiency. 

The people know that there has been no serious effort at law en- 
forcement in this State under the present administration; that 
crimes in high places have been kept concealed and have otherwise 
gone unpunished, and that political considerations have become a 
significant factor in dealing with state and legislative problems 
of vital interest and deep concern to the people of our state. 

The people know that the Democratic politicians and office holders 
are now and have been for some months engaged in carrying on. 
through newspapers and public speakers, a persistent campaign of 
propaganda in an effort to make the people think measures of 
economy have been adopted. The people know that this propa- 
ganda is false and that it is nothing more than campaign thunder 
for the approaching election. 

The people know that the Democratic party in North Caro- 
lina keeps itself in power only by means of unfair, partisan and 
unjust election laws and the oppressive use of the election ma- 
chinery and corrupt practices under cover of the absentee voters 
law. 

The people know that they must have relief from these intoler 
able conditions, and they know that no relief is to be had until 
the Democratic group of office holders, whos.e long reign of extrav- 
agance, tyranny and oppression is responsible for the miserable con- 



76 Political Platforms 

dition which exists throughout our State, is repudiated at tlip 
polls and swept from power. 

Remedies Proposed 

We solemnly promise the people of North Carolina that, if put 
into power, the Republican party will in good faith carry out the 
following proposals which we believe will, in a large measure, 
repair the wrecked financial structures of our State, save it from 
financial ruin, and inspire our people with new faith in our State 
government and new hope for the future. 

We promise immediate and drastic reduction in the number of 
office holders not only the State but in the several counties. 

We promise immediate and drastic reduction in the salaries and 
fees of all office holders, State and county. 

We promise immediate elimination of all waste and extrava- 
gance in the operation of our State institutions and prison farms. 

We promise immediate reduction in the number of departments, 
bureaus, boards and commissions, by eliminations and consoli- 
dations. 

We promise elimination of extravagance and waste in highway 
and road maintenance. 

We promise to reduce to reasonable requirements the large army 
of election officials, clerks and poll holders, whose compensation 
costs the taxpayers a vast amount of money every two years for 
primaries and elections. 

We promise measures for strict economy in every branch of 
State and county government, and for the highest degree of ef- 
ficiency in public officials. 

We promise to enact laws that will give back to the people the 
right to decide by their vote when and for what purposes new 
bonded indebtedness shall be created by the State, counties and 
municipalities. 

We promise to enact laws providing for strict budgetary control 
of State expenditures under a system that will keep the State 
budget always in balance by proper adjustment of State expenses 
to State revenues and incomes. 

We promise to repea^ the Act of the Legislature of 1923 which 
relieved stock in foreign corporations from taxation. This Act 
has worked a discrimination against the domestic corporations 



Republican State Platfokm 77 

and caused many of them to surrender their state charters and to 
become foreign corporations, to the detriment of our State and 
great loss to our State treasury. 

We believe that if the tax reforms and policies of economy pro- 
posed in this platform are made effective, a sales tax in any form 
will be rendered unnecessary. 

We favor a constitutional amendment to authorize increase in 
the rate of taxation of individual and corporate incomes in the higher 
brackets. 

We believe there is too much wealth exempted from taxation 
by law in North Carolina, and that if this wealth, with the vast 
amount of other valuable property that has been kept concealed, is 
made to bear a just proportion of the tax burden, our tax and rev- 
enue problem will be in a large measure solved. We favor laws 
that will place all wealth, tangible as well as intangible, upon the 
tax books, to the end that the property of the rich shall be taxed 
alike with the property of the less favored. 

We believe that the present tax value of land, farms and homes, 
constitutes a rank injustice and positive fraud upon land owners of 
the State. We believe that tax books should be made to speak the 
truth with respect to every item placed upon them, and we promise 
the immediate enactment of laws that will reduce land values and 
that will fix the values of all classes of property for taxation pur- 
poses at not more than their actual market value. 

We favor reform in the present system of taxation so that land 
shall bear only its just proportion of the tax burden, and we de- 
mand that land shall be relieved of all taxes necessary for the 
maintenance and operation of our public schools for the six months 
term provided by the Constitution of our State, and we promise 
to enact the necessary laws to bring about this relief. 

We condemn as grossly unjust the present law providing for tax 
foreclosures by actions in court which entail enormous fees and ex- 
penses to be charged against the property. This law legalizes un- 
conscionable graft; is a disgrace to the State and a cruel burden 
upon distressed tax payers. We promise immediate repeal of this 
law. 



78 Political Platforms 

Banks 

We promise to enact laws that will renew the confidence of our 
people in the banks of our State and that will prevent wholesale 
failures of banks, such as has been witnessed in this State within 
the past two years. Banks should be confined strictly to banking 
operations. We promise a system of State supervision of banks 
that will be intelligent, thorough, painstaking and positive. Bank- 
ing institutions obtain their franchises and charters to do business 
from the people, through proper public officials, and should always 
be subject to whatever reasonable regulations are made for the 
protection of the people. The time to close a bank is the moment 
it becomes insolvent, and no consideration whatsoever, political 
or otherwise, can justify public officials in permitting insolvent 
banks to remain open until all of the assets and deposits therein 
have been dissipated and wasted. We promise legislation that will 
eliminate politics from the regulation and supervision of banks 
and financial institutions in this State. We believe that loss of 
faith in banks and the unnecessary loss of millions of the people's 
money thereby have done more to demoralize economic conditions 
and to prolong the period of depression in this State than any other 
one thing, and if placed in power, we promise the people that the 
banking laws of this State shall be strengthened to the extent 
necessary to insure stability and honesty in the banking business, 
and to guarantee the greatest degree of security and safety to the 
people. 

Public Schools and Education 

We promise that our public schools shall be taken out of politics 
and that they shall be operated under a uniform system throughout 
the State. 

We further promise that our public schools which are near and 
dear to the hearts of the people shall be properly supported and 
their efficiency increased. We believe that a great saving can be 
effected in the operation and maintenance of our public schools 
and other State educational institutions by the elimination of non- 
essentials and unnecessary waste, and by enforcing a policy of 
strict economy. 

We believe that all text books used in the public schools of our 
State should be standardized and made uniform, and that they 



Republican State Platform 79 

should be furnished and where practicable, printed by the State, and 
that the expenses of unnecessary changes in text books and the 
burdens upon the people incident to these changes should be elimi- 
nated. Books for use in our public schools should be furnished by 
the State, either free of charge absolutely, or by loan and return, 
with charge only for depreciation at the end of the school year, 
with option to purchase at actual cost. 

We demand that the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary 
of State, Treasurer, Auditor, Superintendent of Public Instruction 
and the Attorney General, who are Constitutional officers, selected 
for other duties, should not be ex-officio members of and constitute 
the State Board of Education, but to the contrary, this Board 
should be non-partisan and composed of experienced business men 
and educators, whose official duties should be to manage, direct 
and control the public school system of the State, and further em- 
powered and directed to equalize and apportion the funds pro- 
vided by law for school support and maintenance. 

That the State Superintendent of Public Instruction should not 
be an elective Constitutional officer, but to the contrary, he should 
be appointed by the State Board of Education, and thereby remove 
this position from partisan politics. 

We demand that all of our State educational institutions shall 
be amply provided for and supported by the State, and that our pub- 
lic school teachers who have rendered heroic service to the State 
shall be paid salaries commensurate with the grade and character 
of work they are required to perform, without any discrimination 
as to time between the payment of their salaries and the salaries 
of other public officials and employees of the State. 

Chain Stores 

We favor laws that will restrict, by constitutional taxation, the 
menace of chain stores, and give back to the merchants and business 
men of our State the opportunity to do business and earn a 
living free from the crushing competition of alien non-taxpayers. 
We believe that if this condition is not soon remedied, our local 
independent merchants will be driven out of business and that 
our people will be helplessly and hopelessly in the hands of a 
foreign monopoly. 



80 Political Platforms 

Prohibition 

We hope for a capable, courageous, sober and virile nation, and 
therefore pledge ourselves to the retention and strict enforcement 
of the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United 
States and all laws enacted for its enforcement; and we pledge 
ourselves to the impeachment and discharge of every public official 
and peace officer who becomes drunk in public, or while in the 
discharge of any of his official duties and his prompt prosecution 
in the criminal courts. 

Election Laws 

The most sacred possession of a citizen in a free government 
is the right to cast a free and untrammeled ballot and to have 
that ballot honestly counted. This right is seriously abridged in 
North Carolina by the partisan election laws on our statute books, 
and by the corruption and fraudulent practices which these laws 
make possible. These laws and the abuses practiced under them 
are violations of every principle of free government, and we shall 
never cease to protest against them as un-American and unpatriotic. 

We advocate, and if placed in power will enact, fair and impar- 
tial election laws that will restore to the people of this State the 
right to a free vote and voice in their government, and that will 
guarantee to every citizen all the sacred rights and privileges of 
citizenship. 

We favor the immediate repeal of the absentee voters law, and 
we favor a system of registration under the supervision of two 
registrars, who shall be of different political parties, and one elec- 
tion judge. 

Highway Transportation 

We demand that all automotive transportation companies, cor- 
porations and individuals, using the highways of our State for 
transportation for hire shall pay a tax commensurate with the bene- 
fit derived from such use, and that will eliminate the present 
system of unjust discrimination against railroads and other trans- 
portation companies. 

Labor 

The Republican party has always undertaken to protect the 
laboring man and will continue to do so and to advocate always 



Republican State Platform M 

for him just returns for his labor, wholesome conditions under which 
to work, and fair compensation for all injuries sustained in the 
course of his employment. 

Agriculture 
We recognize as a well established fact that the welfare of all 
of our people rests in its finality on the uninterrupted prosperity 
of our farmers, and we therefore pledge our party to exert every 
reasonable effort to improve the general condition of the agricultural 
interests of our State.
