PREFACE 



This volume is issued by the North Carolina Legislative Ref- 
erence Library in order to furnish in succinct form information 
about the State, its government and institutions, which other- 
wise would require much investigation in many different 
sources. Unless otherwise 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 
Commission in 1909, 1911, 1913, 1915, 1917, 1919, 1921, 1923, 
1925, 1927, 1929, and by the Legislative Reference Library in 
1931, 1933, 1935, and 1937. The demand for these volumes has 
been so great that all previous editions have been exhausted.

55. Whenever a public bill is introduced, a carbon copy- 
thereof shall accompany the bill. The Reading Clerk shall 
stamp the copy with the number stamped upon the original 
bill. Such copy shall be daily delivered to the joint committee 
hereinafter provided for. The Principal Clerk shall deliver 
the carbon copy of the bills designated to be printed as here- 
inafter provided for to the public printer and cause 400 copies 
thereof to be printed. On the morning following the delivery 
of the printed copies the Chief Clerk shall cause the Chief 
Page to have one copy thereof put upon the desk of each mem- 
ber, and shall retain the other printed copies in his office. A 
sufficient number of the printed copies for the use of the com- 
mittee to which the bill is referred shall be by the Chief Page 
delivered to the Chairman or Clerk of that committee. If the 
bill is passed, the remaining copies shall be by the Chief Page 
delivered to the Principal Clerk of the House for the use of 
the House. The cost of printing shall be paid from the con- 
tingent fund of the Senate. The Chairman of the Rules Com- 
mittee of the Senate and the Chairman of the Rules Committee 
of the House shall appoint a sub-committee consisting of three 
members of the Senate and two members of the House from 
the body of the Senate and the House, and such Chairman 
shall notify the Principal Clerk of the House and of the Senate 
who has been appointed. Such sub-committee shall meet daily 
and examine the carbon copies of the public bills introduced 
and determine which of such public bills shall be printed and 
which shall not, and stamp the copies accordingly. If the 
member, introducing a public bill, which the committee shall 
determine should not be printed, so desires, he may appear 
before the committee at the next meeting thereof with refer- 
ence thereto. 

56. When a bill has been introduced and referred to a 
committee, if after ten days the committee has failed to report 
thereon, then the author of the bill may, after three days' 
public notice given in the Senate, on motion supported by a 
vote of two-thirds of the Senators present and voting, recall 
the same from the committee to the floor of the Senate for 
consideration and such action thereon as a majority of the 
Senators present may direct.

50 Legislative Department 

House, the bill shall be first read throughout by the Clerk, and

52. All bills and resolutions shall upon their introduction

Rules of House of Representatives 51 

precedence in which bills may be considered. No bill shall be

pose. 

Previous Question 

57. The previous question shall be as follows: "Shall the 
main question be now put?" and, until it is decided, shall 
preclude all amendments and debate. If this question shall be 
decided in the affirmative, the "main question" shall be on the 
passage of the bill, resolution, or other matter under con- 
sideration; but when amendments are pending, the question 
shall be taken upon such amendments, in inverse order, with- 
out further debate or amendment. If such question be decided 
in the negative, the main question shall be considered as 
remaining under debate: Provided, that no one shall move the 
previous question except the member submitting the report on 
the bill or other matter under consideration, and the member 
introducing the bill or other matter under consideration, or 
the member in charge of the measure, who shall be designated 
by the chairman of the committee reporting the same to the 
House at the time the bill or other matter under consideration 
is reported to the House or taken up for consideration. 

When a motion for the previous question is made, and pend- 
ing the second thereto by a majority, debate shall cease; but if 
any member obtains the floor, he may move to lay the matter 



52 Legislative Department 

under consideration on the table, or move an adjournment, 
and when both or either of these motions are pending the 
question shall stand: 

( 1 ) Previous question. 

(2) To adjourn. 

(3) To lay on the table. 

And then upon the main question, or amendments, or the 
motion to postpone indefinitely, postpone to a day certain, to 
commit, or amend, in the order of their precedence, until the 
main question is reached or disposed of; but after the previous 
question has been called by a majority, no motion, or amend- 
ment, or debate shall be in order. 

All motions below the motions to lay on the table must be 
made prior to a motion for the previous question; but, pending 
and not after the second therefor, by the majority of the House, 
a motion to adjourn or lay on the table, or both, are in order. 
This constitutes the precedence of the motions to adjourn and 
lay on the table over other motions, in Rule 25. 

Motions stand as follows in order of precedence in Rule 26: 

Previous question. 

Adjourn. 

Lay on the table. 

Postpone indefinitely. 

To commit or amend. 

When the previous question is called, all motions below it 
fall, unless made prior to the call, and all motions above it 
fall after its second by a majority required. Pending the second, 
the motions to adjourn and lay on the table are in order, but 
not after a second. When in order and every motion is before 
the House, the question stands as follows: 

Previous question. 

Adjourn. 

Lay on the table. 

Postpone indefinitely. 

Postpone definitely. 

To commit. 

Amendment to amendment. 

Amendment. 

Substitute. 

Bill. 



Rules of House of Representatives 53 

The previous question covers all other motions when sec- 
onded by a majority of the House, and proceeds by regular 
graduation to the main question, without debate, amendment, 
or motion, until such question is reached or disposed of. 

58. All committees, other than the Committee on Appro- 
priations, when favorably reporting any bill which carries an 
appropriation from the State, shall indicate same in the report, 
and said bill shall be re-referred to the Committee on Appro- 
priations for a further report before being acted upon by the 
House. All committees, other than the Committee on Finance, 
when favorably reporting any bill which in any way or manner 
raises revenue or levies a tax or authorizes the issue of bonds 
or notes, whether public, public-local, or private, shall indicate 
same in the report, and said bill shall be re-referred to the 
Committee on Finance for a further report before being acted 
upon by the House. 

59. The Principal Clerk, the Engrossing Clerk, and the 
Sergeant-at-Arms may appoint, with the approval of the 
Speaker, such assistants as may be necessary to the efficient 
discharge of the duties of their various offices, and one or 
more of whom may be assigned by the Speaker from the 
Engrossing Clerk's office to the office of the Legislative Ref- 
erence Librarian for the purpose of drafting bills. 

60. The Speaker may appoint a Clerk to the Speaker, and 
he may also appoint ten pages to wait upon the sessions of the 
House, and when the pressure of business may require, he 
may appoint five additional pages. 

61. The Chairman of each of the following committees, 
Appropriations, Counties, Cities and Towns, Education, 
Finance, and Roads, may each appoint a clerk to the said com- 
mittees; and the chairmen of Judiciary Committee, No. 1, and 
of Judiciary Committee, No. 2, may jointly appoint a clerk to 
serve both of said committees; and the chairmen of Agriculture 
and Banks and Banking may jointly appoint a clerk to serve 
both of said committees; and the chairmen of Propositions and 
Grievances and Insurance may jointly appoint a clerk to serve 
both of said committees; and the chairmen of Salaries and 
Fees and Courts and Judicial Districts may jointly appoint a 
clerk to serve both of said committees. All committee clerks 



54 Legislative Department 

heretofore provided for are to be appointed by and with the 
approval of the Speaker. All committee clerks after being 
named as provided by this rule shall be subject to assignments 
by the chairman of the Rules Committee when they are not 
engaged with the committee or committees to which they have 
been regularly assigned. 

62. That no clerk, laborer, or other person employed or 
appointed under Rules 59, 60, and 61 hereof shall receive dur- 
ing such employment, appointment, or service any compensa- 
tion from any other department of the State Government, or 
from any other source, and there shall not be voted, paid, or 
awarded any additional pay, bonus or gratuity to any of them, 
but said persons shall receive only the pay for such duties and 
services as now provided by law. When the House is not in 
session the pages shall be under the supervision of the Prin- 
cipal Clerk. 

63. The chairman and five other members of any committee 
shall constitute a quorum of said committee for the transaction 
of business. 

64. The Committee on the Journal shall examine daily the 
Journal of the House before the hour of convening, and report 
after the opening of the House whether or not the proceedings 
of the previous day have been correctly recorded. 

65. When a bill shall be reported by a committee with a 
recommendation that it be not passed, but accompanied by a 
minority report, the question before the House shall be "The 
adoption of the minority report," and if failing to be adopted 
by a majority vote, the bill shall be placed upon the unfavor- 
able calendar. Such minority report shall be signed by at 
least three members of the committee who were present when 
the bill was considered in committee: Provided, however, that 
where a minority report is filed the proponents and opponents 
of the question presented thereby shall be allowed not to 
exceed ten minutes on each side to explain the question: 
Provided further, that by a majority vote the time may be 
extended for a discussion of the minority report and on the 
merits of the bill. In the event there is an unfavorable report 
with no minority report accompanying it, the bill shall be 
placed upon the unfavorable calendar. To take a bill from 
the unfavorable calendar, a two-thirds vote shall be necessary. 



Rules of House of Representatives 55 

65a. A bill from the unfavorable calendar shall not be 
debatable, but the movant may make a brief and concise state- 
ment of the reasons for the motion before making the motion, 
taking not more than five minutes. 

66. Whenever a public bill is introduced a carbon copy 
thereof shall accompany the bill. The Reading Clerk shall 
stamp the copy with the number stamped upon the original 
bill. Such copy shall be daily delivered to the joint committee 
hereinafter provided for. The Principal Clerk shall deliver the 
carbon copy of the bills designated to be printed, as herein- 
after provided for, to the Public Printer and cause four hun- 
dred copies thereof to be printed. On the morning following 
the delivery of the printed copies the Chief Clerk shall cause 
the chief page to have one copy thereof put upon the desk of 
each member and shall retain the other printed copies in his 
office. A sufficient number of the printed copies for the use of 
the committee to which the bill is referred shall be by the 
chief page delivered to the chairman or clerk of that com- 
mittee. If the bill is passed, the remaining copies shall be by 
the chief page delivered to the Principal Clerk of the Senate 
for the use of the Senate. The cost of printing shall be paid

for one week unless for good cause the chairmen of the re- 
spective rules committees shall determine otherwise. If the 
member introducing a public bill, which the committee shall 
determine should not be printed, so desires, he may appear 
before the committee at the next meeting thereof with refer-

NORTH CAROLINA PROBATION DEPARTMENT 

Chapter 132, P. L. 1937 



Probation Commission 

Composition — Chairman and four members. 

Personnel — The Honorable Wilson Warlick, Judge Superior 
Court, Chairman; Superintendent of Public Instruction, Clyde 
A. Erwin; Attorney General, A. A. F. Seawell; Commissioner 
of Paroles, Edwin Gill; and John S. Bradway, Director Legal 
Aid Clinic, Duke University. 

Term — First appointments were from one to five years with 
one member's appointment expiring each year. 

Compensation — Actual expenses not to exceed 5 cents a mile 
for travel and $4.00 a day for subsistence while attending 
Commission meetings. 

The Legislature of 1937 provided for the establishment of a 
State-wide adult probation system and for the appointment by 
the Governor of a Commission of five men. The Commission 
exercises general supervision over the Department, formulates 
policies, adopts general rules, regulates methods of procedure, 
sets standards for personnel and appoints a full-time director. 
The Director has supervision of the staff and Probation Officers 
and directs the administrative procedure. Under the Statute 
the Probation Officers supervise all adult persons placed on 
probation by the criminal courts of record in North Carolina. 
This includes 27 Superior Courts and 97 Recorder and County 
courts. 

Composition of Department Other Than Commission — Direc- 
tor of Probation, 2 Case Supervisors, 11 Probation Officers, 
3 Women Supervisors, Secretary, Supply and Budget Officer 
and Record Clerk. 

Personnel — J. H. Sample, Director; C. B. Vaughan and L. H. 
Ranson, Case Supervisors; Mae Oliver, Fleda Summers Whita- 
ker, and Elizabeth James Barrett, Office Staff. Probation Offi- 
cers: J. D. Beaty, H. Vincent Leary, L C. Crawford. S. E. W. 
Kenney. Kirkwood L. Hanrahan, R. Bruce White, Jr., Tlios. D. 
Stokes, E. S. Whitaker, J. Wayland Sledge, P. T. McNeill and 

[67] 



68 Probation Department 

A. Y. Howell. Women Supervisors: Pauline Cobb Griffin, Mrs. 
Charles Hutchins and Maude R. Jimison. 

Compensation — Director, $3,750; Case Supervisors, $3,000 
and $2,700: Probation Officers and Women Supervisors, $1,860. 

The State is divided into 11 probation districts, each con- 
sisting of two judicial districts. One probation officer has head- 
quarters in each district and supervises probationers from the 
courts in his territory. The districts average 9 counties and 
11 courts each. The women supervisors handle the women on 
probation from 33 counties each. 

The Probation Officers complete case histories on each 
person placed under their supervision and contact them at 
least once every thirty days during their period of probation. 
Every probationer is required to report in writing each month 
as to their activities, including name and place of employment, 
amount of money earned and how expended and other perti- 
nent data as to their conduct. In addition to supervision duties 
the Probation Officers make pre-sentence investigations for the 
courts when the Judges are not familiar with the defendants 
and want to have before them the social history as well as the 
past records before passing sentence. 

During the first year of operation of the probation system, 
from November 1, 1937, to November 1, 1938, there were 
1,238 persons placed on probation by the courts. This is about 
an average of 100 to each probation officer and woman super- 
visor. Of these, 86, or approximately 6^2 per cent, violated 
the conditions of probation and were brought back into court 
by the probation officers at which time their suspended sen- 
tences were placed into effect and they are now in the Peni- 
tentiary or in road camps. All of the 27 Superior Court judges 
have placed defendants on probation and 76 of the Recorder 
and County court judges. The average length of the proba- 
tionary sentence imposed by the courts is 2.4 years and it is 
anticipated that when the Department has been in operation 
for two and a half years there will be between 2,000 and 3,000 
men and women under the supervision of the probation officers 
and supervisors.

function is to give assistance to Sheriffs, Chiefs of Police,

PLATFORMS OF POLITICAL PARTIES, 1938 



PART III 



1. State Democratic Platform. 

2. State Republican Platform. 



[73] 



STATE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM 



Adopted at Raleigh, May 19, 1938 

The platform follows: 

The delegates to this convention, representing the Democrats 
in the one hundred counties of the State, adopt the following 
declarations as the platform of the party for 1938: 

National Administration 

We endorse the record of the national administration under 
the leadership of our great President, Franklin D. Roosevelt. 

We endorse the heroic measures that have been recom- 
mended by the President and adopted by the Congress to 
restore normal conditions to prosperity for all classes of our 
people. We believe the groundwork has been laid for an era 
of unprecedented prosperity for agriculture, labor, business 
and industry. 

In the spread of the national territory from the original 13 
States to the present 48 States, every new geographical frontier 
was achieved under Democratic leadership and Democratic 
statesmanship. With fixed geographical boundaries. Democratic 
leadership, in State and nation, is establishing within these 
boundaries new frontiers of human rights and of social service 
and security. Never before has the popular mind been so fixed 
upon individual rights and the obligations of government to 
the forgotten man. Never before has there been even an effort 
made by our national government to provide security for old 
age, the unemployed and other groups in need of public assist- 
ance. The achievement of these great objectives necessarily 
involves troublesome adjustments, but no one antagonizes those 
new objectives, and the same statesmanship that has projected 
them can be depended upon to find the means to make them 
work, and without injustice to establish them as a part of the 
fixed policy of our government. 

Congressional Delegation 

We observe with pride the growing prestige of North Caro- 
lina's delegation in the National Congress, and record our 
appreciation of the services rendered by tiic State's Senators 
and Representatives. > ^5 1 



76 Political Platforms 

State Government 

We endorse the progressive record of the State Government, 
through its General Assembly, its departments and institutions, 
under the leadership of our popular Governor, Clyde R. Hoey. 
His administration is establishing new frontiers of service to 
all the people. 

Public Education 

Public education has for years been the pride of Democratic 
government in this State. It has been fostered until, with an 
eight months high school in reach of every child, we are achiev- 
ing the Aycock objective of an equal educational opportunity 
for all the children of the State. During this administration 
we have: 

Restored substantially the pre-depression level of salaries 
for teachers; 

Provided free textbooks for all the children in the elemen- 
tary schools; 

Improved all secondary school roads and provided more safe 
and improved equipment for transportation of school children; 

We are rapidly extending and enlarging facilities for voca- 
tional training of children in high schools. 

This record of service is a pledge of future interest in and 
liberal support of public education by the Democratic party. 

Public Health 

Our liberally supported and progressive and aggressive 
public health service has gone a long way in its efforts to 
promote the health of our people, and particularly to eradicate 
infectious and contagious diseases. Our efforts in this direction 
have been supplemented in an important way by the action of 
the trustees of the seven million dollar endowment fund of the 
Smith Reynolds estate in dedicating the income of this endow- 
ment to the eradication of venereal diseases, and to be ex- 
pended in complete co-operation with the State Board of 
Health. This liberal action should stimulate our own co- 
operative action to achieve this great purpose. 

Public Roads 

We approve \he major interest of the present administration 
in improving secondary public roads that serve the intimate 



State Democratic Platform 77 

needs of those not on the main State highways. While this 
program is being carried out in liberal measure large expendi- 
tures are continually being made to improve and extend 
standard highways. As rapidly as funds permit new links are 
being laid, congested links widened, dangerous curves are 
being removed and shoulders improved in the interest of safety 
and convenience. Every possible means of co-operation is and 
should be given to the completion as rapidly as possible of the 
crest-of-the-ridge scenic highway to the Great Smoky Moun- 
tains National Park — the most beautiful area on the American 
continent. 

Highway Safety 

We pledge our support to the program, sponsored by the 
present administration, to use every reasonable means of 
engineering, education and enforcement, to make the use of 
our highways safe, and to this end we call upon all public 
officials to enforce traffic laws without fear or favor, and we 
invite the co-operation of all the people of the State in support 
of this effort to reduce fatalities, injuries and property damage 
on highways. 

Social Security 

Through the co-operation of Federal, State and local govern- 
ments, regular monthly benefit payments are now being made 
to approximately fifty thousand people in the State who never 
knew before that government was interested in their difficult 
problems of age, unemployment and other causes of disability. 

Agriculture 

The fact that North Carolina outranks every State in the 
Southeast in the value of its farm products is a significant 
indication of the intelligent interest that State government has 
maintained in the State's chief business of agriculture, through 
its State Department of Agriculture, its College of Agriculture 
and extension service, its agricultural courses in rural high 
schools, and through the numerous activities of these agencies. 
It is co-operating fully with every helpful service of the 
Federal government to improve the economic condition of the 
most numerous class of our citizenship. It pledges a continu- 
ance of every helpful service to achieve this end.

Industry and Labor 

Under just laws, providing fair and equal treatment for 
capital and labor, North Carolina has become a great indus- 
trial State. 

Today, as in the past, the Democratic party recognizes its 
responsibility for the welfare of the workers of the State and 
we pledge ourselves to continue the policies initiated by our 
party that have won national recognition for North Carolina 
in the field of labor legislation and labor law administration. 
We are proud of the fact that at the Fourth National Confer- 
ence on Labor Legislation held in the Nation's Capital in 
October, 1937, North Carolina was one of the 12 States, and 
the only Southern State, to be cited for outstanding progress 
in labor legislation, in that our State had enacted an Unem- 
ployment Compensation Law: had established a State Employ- 
ment Service; had provided for assistance for our disabled 
aged workers; had provided for occupational disease coverage 
in our Workmen's Compensation Law; had provided for scien- 
tific surveys of working places for occupational disease haz- 
ards; had passed a maximum hours law for men and women; 
had passed a model boiler inspection law, and other safety 
measures; had adopted an industrial code second to none in 
the nation, and had enacted the best child labor law in the 
United States. 

We will continue to protect the worker in the exercise of 
his just rights, recognizing among these the right of collective 
bargaining and self-organization free from interference. We 
pledge ourselves to maintain and further perfect the State's 
child labor law and its maximum hours law and to urge enact- 
ment of other laws to promote the welfare of our workers and 
the improvement of working conditions in North Carolina. 

The Democratic party has opposed, and will continue to 
oppose, all forms of intimidation and coercion, whether against 
worker or employer, and holds the worker's rights to work 
as sacred as his right not to work. We hold that the true 
interests of workers and employers do not conflict; that differ- 
ences between employers and workers should be settled not by 
industrial war, but by peaceful conference. We commend both 
employers and employees upon the peaceful relationships ex- 
isting throughout industrial North Carolina. 



State Democratic Platform 79 

Advertising 

We approve the program of presenting intelligently and 
without boast to the outside world the many advantages which 
our State has to offer to prospective tourists, to prospective 
residents, and to prospective business and industry. They may 
be assured of ideal conditions, and the friendly welcome of a 
friendly people. 

Prison Reform 

We are making rapid progress in a humane and enlightened 
treatment of our criminal class. 

Our central State prison has been completely modernized 
and made fire-proof and sanitary, and now ranks with the 
very best institutions of its kind in the country. 

With WPA assistance we are rapidly approaching the point 
where every prison camp will be fire-proof and sanitary. 

Through a regularly employed religious instructor, religious 
services are held every Sunday in every prison and prison 
camp in the State. This service is provided through regularly 
arranged volunteer teacher service. 

Recreational facilities are provided and wholesome sports 
encouraged. 

A genuine effort is made to improve the religious, moral 
and educational standards of prisoners. It is believed that this 
program will prevent the return of many offenders to criminal 
ways. 

The parole system has been broadened, and under act of the 
last General Assembly a new probation system, under the 
supervision of a State Board and probation field officers, has 
been inaugurated. It is believed that an intelligent use of this 
system will result in reformation to good citizenship in many 
cases. 

The State Budget 

The progressive program that is being carried out in this 
biennium is being achieved without any increase in tax bur- 
dens, and every dollar of expense, and of bond interest and 
maturing bonds, is being met from current revenue. An im- 
portant reduction in the State debt is being made every year. 
Notwithstanding this broad program of public service tlie 
average tax on property in North Carohna is lower than in 



80 Political Platforms 

any other American State, because no tax is levied by the 
State on farms, homes or any kind of tangible property. The 
State has been striving for a fair and just tax system to carry 
its heavy load of public sei'vice that reaches every home in 
the State, without a tax on property, and without unreasonable 
burdens on any class. An essential feature of this program 
has been a consistent policy of strict economy in every branch 
of the State service. Carefully scrutinized appropriations are 
again carefully scrutinized before spendable allotments are 
made by the Budget Bureau. All purchases are made on 
advertised bids to the Division of Purchase and Contract. State 
general fund revenues are collected at an average cost of one 
and thirteen one-hundredths (1.13) per cent. The total admin- 
istrative cost for all departments of the State government is 
only four and eight-tenths (4.8) per cent of general fund 
revenue. 

Good Will 
We commend the fine public service of Governor Hoey in 
promoting understanding between the State government and 
the people, and his administration to a spirit of friendship and 
co-operation between all sections and between all classes of 
people in the State. In thirty-eight years of wholesome Demo- 
cratic control of our State government we have achieved an 
enviable position in the sisterhood of States for clean, pro- 
gressive government. In this spirit of co-operation we will go 
furthest in the development of a great State, and in its ability 
to serve the needs of all the people. 



STATE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM 



The Republican party of North Carolina, in convention 
assembled in Charlotte, on March 16, 1938, adopted the follow- 
ing platform and if entrusted with the power, will enact those 
principles and pledges into law. 

State Affairs 

North Carolina, geographically and from a standpoint of 
natural resources, is one of the most favored States in the 
Union. The Republicans of North Carolina are proud of their 
State, and glory in its record of achievements. With its natural 
treasures and the boundless energy of an intelligent and indus- 
trious population, our State should be able, under proper 
political management, to conduct its public affairs without 
increasing the per capita cost of State government, or increas- 
ing its bonded indebtedness; yet, during the past few years, 
under exclusive Democratic control, it has increased the cost 
of government more than 300 per cent, and has increased the 
bonded debt of the State over 1000 per cent. 

In order to provide lucrative jobs for Democratic politicians 
and their lieutenants, more than 100 departments, bureaus, 
and commissions have been created, at an enormous and 
unnecessary cost, and in order to provide funds for this extrav- 
agance and waste, our State Legislatures and taxing authori- 
ties, year after year, spend their time in searching out new 
things to be taxed, new methods of taxation, and new ways of 
exacting more and more money from the people under the 
guise of taxes. We favor the return by the State to the counties 
of the entire net intangible property tax. 

The General Sales Tax 

One of the most unjust and annoying of these tax devices is 
the general sales tax, which falls most heavily upon the poor 
and laboring classes and forces the merchants and tradesmen 
to become unwilling tax collectors for the State and witliout 
reward or compensation.

Wrongful Division of Road Funds 

The tax on gasoline and the motor vehicle tax is levied and 
collected ostensibly to build and maintain the public highways, 
yet in order to take care of their annual deficits in operating 
the State penitentiary, the Democratic machine, by a cunning 
legislative device, has placed that institution under the High- 
way Commission, and thereby shift the burden of its mainte- 
nance to the road fund, which naturally retards road construc- 
tion and maintenance. 

This is a wrongful diversion of public funds, and is immoral, 
if not illegal, and should be openly condemned and promptly 
discontinued. 

Reduction of Motor Vehicle License Tax 

Since the motor vehicle license tax is excessively high, and 
not being used exclusively for road purposes, we demand that 
the license tax on motor vehicles be substantially reduced. 

The Republican party pledges the people, if entrusted with 
that power, to repeal the onerous general sales tax, to reduce 
the annual license tax on motor vehicles, to stop the wrongful 
diversion of road funds to support the State penitentiary, and 
we further pledge to abolish every department, bureau, com- 
mission and office that is not essential to an economic adminis- 
tration of our State government, thereby reducing the operat- 
ing expense, and return many hundred useless political 
employees, now pensioners of the State, back to private 
employment and honest labor. 

Honest Elections and Repeal of Absentee Ballot 

The Republican party has always stood for fair elections and 
again pledges the people of this State to advocate the repeal 
of the Absentee Ballot, for all elections, the abolition of mark- 
ers, and demand election officials of our own choosing and 
equal representation of both parties in the registration of 
voters, and in the conduct of primary and general elections, 
to the end that every qualified voter, irrespective of party, race 
or creed, may be assured the right of a free ballot and an 
honest count, the only safeguard of free representative govern- 
ment. 



State Republican Platform 83 

Non-Partisan Judiciary 

We favor a non-partisan judiciary in this State in like man- 
ner as we have a non-partisan federal judiciary. 

The policy of selecting outstanding lawyers of both parties 
for positions on the Superior and Supreme Courts is not only 
just and fair, but would prove a wholesome policy and remove 
any suspicion of political influence in the administration of 
justice in the courts of this State. 

Intoxicating Liquors 

We believe the question of the regulation or prohibition of 
the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors for beverage 
purposes is strictly a social and moral problem, which cannot 
be solved by making it either a local or partisan issue. Never- 
theless, we oppose the legalized manufacture and sale of 
intoxicating liquors in any part of North Carolina unless first 
approved by the people in a State-wide referendum. 

Public Schools 

We favor a State-supported uniform system of public schools, 
as provided for in the Constitution, with free educational 
opportunities for every child in the State, whether it lives in 
a poor county or a rich county. We favor free text-books, and 
safe transportation of the pupils, where necessity requires it. 
We favor a high standard for teachers, who shall be paid a 
decent salary, and we favor a non-partisan School Commission 
and County Boards of Education, to the end that no political 
consideration will enter into the control of the schools, or in 
the selection of the teachers. 

Non-Partisan Control of State Institutions 

We favor now, as we have always favored, liberal support 
of all the charitable, penal, and educational institutions of the 
State, to be controlled by non-partisan boards. 

All relief funds, whether from the county. State or national 
government, are derived from all the people, and the adminis- 
tration of these funds, whether for the aged and poor, or for 
farm relief, is in no sense a political matter, and all individuals 



84 Political Platforms 

and local agencies that administer these funds should be 
selected without regard to party affiliations, and should appor- 
tion these funds without injustice or discrimination. 

National Affairs 

The New Deal came into power upon a Democratic platform 
denouncing extravagance and pledged to a program of economy 
in government. It has scorned its covenant with the people, 
undermined American traditions and institutions, imposed 
higher and more punitive taxes, incurred a greater public 
indebtedness, and practiced more waste, extravagance and 
graft in the expenditure of the people's money than any other 
administration in the Nation's history. 

It has used public money to build and maintain a p. rt san 
political machine. 

It has urged the passage of unconstitutional laws. 

It has endeavored to destroy the independence of the Judi- 
ciary and fostered disregard for law. 

It has arrayed labor against capital, employee against 
employer, poor against rich, class against class, faction against 
faction, and section against section, and has destroyed the 
morale, self-reliance and spirit of free initiative of millions of 
our people. 

It has fostered socialism, communism, and dictatorship, and 
has made free America into a land of tyranny and oppression. 

It has penalized thrift, individual initiative, and free enter- 
prise, at the same time placing a premium upon idleness and 
indolence. 

We believe in government by law enacted for the general 
welfare, rather than by men who are actuated by malice or 
sectional, factional, or class prejudice. We believe that ordered 
prosperity and the happiness of our people are being retarded 
by the conduct of high governmental agencies in arousing 
factional, class, and sectional prejudice and hate. Government 
belittles itself by encouraging a spirit of vindictiveness instead 
of cultivating the spirit of the "good neighbor" and brotherly 
love among the people, and also by admittedly pvmitive legis- 
lation and taxation. We do not believe the country can prosper 
under an administration which covets the "mastery" over any 
law-abiding element of our citizenship. 



State Republican Platform 85 

We solicit the support and co-operation of all citizens regard- 
less of party affiliation who believe in the policies of govern- 
ment herein declared; who adhere to the governmental 
principles of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln; who believe 
that the maintenance of the principles promulgated in the 
Declaration of Independence and embodied in the Federal and 
State Constitutions are essential to the preservation of our 
Republican form of government; and who believe that govern- 
ment within the limits of our written Constitution, interpreted 
in the light of Twentieth Century progressing civilization, and 
the rights of the States as therein declared, must be preserved. 

With all those of this faith we desire to join hearts and 
hands in earnest devotion to these sacred principles of free 
government. Without partisan spirit, placing country above 
party, with charity for all, and with malice toward none, let 
us join battle with those who would destroy the constitutional 
liberties of our people.
