PREFACE 



The North Carolina Manual is issued by the Secretary of State 
to furnish information about the State, its government, governmental 
agencies, institutions and poitical subdivisions of the State of North 
Carolina. Many additional features have been included in the 1943 
edition which it is hoped will make the manual of greater reference 
service and of increased interest to those who consult it. 

Since 1903, manuals of a similar character have been issued 
biennially either by the Secretary of State, the North Carolina His- 
torical Commission or the Legislative Reference Librarian. This is 
the second one issued by the Secretary of State since the return of 
this activity to the Department of State by an act of the 1939 General 
Assembly. I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the persons 
who so promptly supplied information for this edition and special 
acknowledgment is made to Richard S. Jones, Director of Publica- 
tions in this Department, and his assistants who compiled the data 
for the volume under my supervision. 

The North Carolina Manual of 1943 is presented with the hope that 
it will prove useful, interesting and informative.

amendments, and resolutions before they go out of the possession of 
the Senate, and make a report when they find them correctly en- 
grossed: Provided, that when a bill is typewritten and has no inter- 
lineations therein, and has passed the Senate without amendment, it 
shall be sent to the House without engrossment, unless otherwise 
ordered. 

18. The Committee on Appropriations shall carefully examine all 
bills and resolutions appropriating or paying any moneys out of the 
State Treasury, except bills creating or increasing salaries, which 
shall be referred to the proper committee: Provided, said committee 
shall report to the Appropriations Committee the amount allowed, and 
keep an accurate record of the same and report to the Senate from 
time to time. All bills introduced in the Senate providing for bond 
issues, levying taxes, or in any manner affecting the taxing power 
of the State or any subdivision thereof, shall, before being considered 
by the Senate, be referred to the Committee on Finance, and bills 
referred to other committees carrying any of the provisions 
herein mentioned shall be re-referred to the Senate as being bills to 
be considered by the Finance Committee before proper action may 
be taken by the Senate. 

19. Every report of the committee upon a bill or resolution which 
shall not be considered at the time of making the same, or laid on 
the table by a vote of the Senate, shall stand upon the general orders 
with the bill or resolution; and the report of the committee shall 
show that a majority of the committee were present and voted. 

On General Orders and Special Orders 

20. Any bill or other matter may be made a special order for a 
particular day or hour by a vote of the majority of the Senators 
voting, and if it shall not be completed on that day, it shall be re- 
turned to its place on the Calendar, unless it shall be made a special 
order for another day; and when a special order is under considera- 
tion it shall take precedence of any special order or subsequent order 
for the day, but such subsequent order may be taken up immediately 
after the previous special order has been disposed of. 

21. Every bill shall receive three readings previous to its being 
passed, and the President shall give notice at each whether it be the 
first, second, or third. After the first reading, unless a motion 



88 Senate 

shall be made by some Senator, it shall be the duty of the President 
to refer the subject-matter to an appropriate committee. No bill shall 
be amended until it shall have been twice read. 

Proceedings When There Is Not a Quorum Voting 

22. If, on taking the question on a bill, it shall appear that a 
constitutional quorum is not present, or if the bill require a vote 
of a certain proportion of all the Senators to pass it, and it appears 
that such number is not present, the bill shall be again read and the 
question taken thereon; if the bill fail a second time for the want 
of the necessary number being present and voting, the bill shall not 
be finally lost, but shall be returned to the Calendar in its proper 
order.

23. When a question is before the Senate no motion shall be 
received except those herein specified, which motions shall have

(5) To postpone to a certain day. 

(6) To commit to a standing committee. 

(7) To commit to a select committee. 

(8) To amend.

24. The previous question shall be as follows: "Shall the main

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 consideration; but when amend- 
ments are pending, the question shall be taken up on such amend- 
ments, in their inverse order, without further debate or amend- 
ment: 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 Senate at the time the bill or other matter under con- 
sideration is reported to the Senate or taken up for consideration. 



Senate 89

ing, debate shall cease, and only a motion to adjourn or lay on the

question is made, pending a second thereto, any member may give 
notice that he desires to offer an amendment to the bill or other mat- 
ter under consideration; and after the previous question is seconded 
such member shall be entitled to offer his amendment in pursuance 
of such notice. 

Other Questions To Be Taken Without Debate 

26. The motions to adjourn and lay on the table shall be decided 
without debate, and the motion to adjourn shall always be in order 
when made by a Senator entitled to the floor. 

27. The respective motions to postpone to a certain day, or to 
commit, shall preclude debate on the main question. 

28. All question relating to priority of business shall be decided

29. When the reading of a paper is called for, except petitions, and 
the same is objected to by any Senator, it shall be determined by 
the Senate without debate. 

30. Any Senator requesting to be excused from voting may make, 
either immediately before or after the vote shall have been called for 
and before the result shall have been announced, a brief statement 
of the reasons for making such request, and the question shall then 
be taken without debate. Any Senator may explain his vote on any 
bill pending by obtaining permission of the President before the vote 
is put: Provided, that not more than three minutes shall be con- 
sumed in such explanation. 

Questions That Require a Two-thirds Vote 

31. No bill or resolution on its third reading shall be acted on out 
of the regular order in which it stands on the Calendar, and no bill 
or resolution shall be acted upon on its third reading the same day 
on which it passed its second reading unless so ordered by two-thirds 
of the Senators present.

or not; if decided to be out of order, he shall not proceed without 
the permission of the Senate; and every question of order shall be 
decided by the President, subject to an appeal to the Senate by any 
Senator; and if a Senator is called to order for words spoken, the 
words excepted to shall be immediately taken down in writing, that 
the President or Senate may be better able to judge of the matter. 

Miscellaneous Rules 

36. When a question has been once put and decided, it shall be in 
order for any Senator who shall have voted in the majority to move 
a reconsideration thereof, but no motion for the reconsideration of 
any vote shall be in order after the bill, resolution, message, report, 
amendment, or motion upon which the vote was taken shall have 
gone out of the possession of the Senate; nor shall any motion for 
reconsideration be in order unless made on the same day or the next

be daily delivered to the joint committee hereinafter provided for. 
The Principal Clerk shall deliver the carbon copy of the bills desig- 
nated to be printed as hereinafter provided for to the public printer 
and cause 400 copies thereof to be printed. On the morning following

shall notify the Principal Clerk of the House and of the Senate who 
has been appointed. Such subcommittee 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 de- 
sires, he may appear before the committee at the next meeting thereof 
with reference thereto.

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

closed and there shall be a call of the House, and upon a call of the 
House the names of the members shall be called over by the Clerk 
and the absentees noted, after which the names of the absentees

excuses are made may, by order of those present, if fifteen in num- 
ber, be taken into custody as they appear, or may be sent for and 
taken into custody wherever to be found by special messenger ap-

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 consideration; but when amend- 
ments are pending, the question shall be taken upon such amend- 
ments, in inverse order, without 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 mem- 
ber in charge of the measure, who shall be designated by the chair- 
man of the committee reporting the same to the House at the time

second thereto by a majority, debate shall cease; but if any member 
obtains the floor, he may move to lay the matter under consideration 
on the table, or move an adjournment, and when both or either of 
these motions are pending the question shall stand:

to postpone indefinitely, postpone to a day certain, to commit, or 



Rules and Standing Committees 117 

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 amendment, 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 definitely. 

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.

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 Appropriations, 
when favorably reporting any bill which carries an appropriation 



1 1 s House of Representatives 

from the State, shall indicate same in the report, and said bill shall 
be re-referred to the Committee on Appropriations 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 and the Sergeant-at-Arms may appoint, 
with the approval of the Speaker, such assistants as may be neces- 
sary 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 
Principal Clerk's office to the office of the Attorney General for the 
purpose of drafting bills. 

The office of Engrossing Clerk is hereby abolished as an elective 
office, and the duties and responsibilities of that office are hereby 
devolved upon the Principal Clerk. 

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: Agricul- 
ture, Appropriations, Banks and Banking, Congressional Districts,

Welfare, Recodification, Roads, Rules, Salaries and Fees, Senatorial

to the said committee. All committee Clerks heretofore provided for 
are to be appointed by and with the approval of the Speaker. With 
the exception of the Clerks appointed to Appropriations and Finance, 
the Clerks to all the other above-named committees, when not on 
duty with their specific committee, shall report to and be under the 
supervision of the Principal Clerk of the House for assignment to 
special duty with other committees and to serve the convenience of 
the members of the House.

under Rules 59, 60, and 61 hereof shall receive during such employ- 
ment, appointment, or service any compensation from any depart- 
ment 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 Principal Clerk. 

63. The chairman and five other members of any committee shall

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 Ivy a committee with a recom- 
mendation 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 two-thirds vote, 
the bill shall be placed upon the unfavorable 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: Pro- 
vided, 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 calen- 
dar. To take a bill from the unfavorable calendar, a two-thirds vote 
shall be necessary. 

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



120 House of Representatives 

66. Whenever a public bill is introduced a carbon copy thereof

daily delivered to the joint committee hereinafter provided for. The 
Principal Clerk shall deliver the carbon copy of the bill designated

PLATFORM ADOPTED AT STATE DEMOCRATIC 

CONVENTION HELD IN RALEIGH, NORTH 

CAROLINA, FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1942 

We meet today in the shadow of a supreme national peril. Our 
country is at war — a war forced on us by the calculated treachery and 
the long gathering ambitions of nations that would conquer, loot 
and enslave the world. The forces leagued against us are barbarous 
and powerful. They make war with a medieval immorality that knows 
neither honor nor pity and that spurns decency as a sign of decadence. 
They have the formidable strength of long preparations and desperate 
ambitions. 

This is the crucial test of our long history. All that we have and 
are is at stake. Our independence, our democratic institutions, our 
free way of life, our legacies out of the past, our bequests to posterity 
— all are in mortal danger. Already the tides of war are washing 
our shores. Already American sailors and soldiers are fighting and 
dying on the seven seas and on virtually all of the continents of the 
embattled globe. In saving herself, America will save the world from 
unspeakable degradation. Her defeat would extinguish the light of 
hope for bondmen and freemen everywhere. 

At this solemn moment in the life of the republic we meet as 
North Carolina Democrats. We owe to the people an accounting for 
the conduct of the offices which have been entrusted to the Demo- 
cratic party. We owe to the people a restatement of the faith that is 
in us and of the policies that we will pursue. The open and orderly 
processes of self-government must continue even in war. We offer 
that accounting and make that restatement in a soberness of thought 
and word befitting the grave times. 

This convention unreservedly and enthusiastically endorses the 
administration which President Roosevelt has given to the nation's 
affairs, domestic and foreign. We particularly approve and applaud 
his wise and effective handling of the foreign and defense policies 
since the last convention of the Democratic party of North Carolina. 

President Roosevelt never had any illusions about the threat which 
the Axis powers offered to the safety and to the independence of the 
United States. He appraised at true value the enormous preparations 
which they had made for aggressive warfare. From the moment of 
France's fall, he foresaw that they would extend their operations 
to this hemisphere and seek through open attack or economic pressure 

[144] 



Democratic Platform 145 

to conquer or to impoverish this country. With extraordinary wisdom 
and unusual fixity of purpose, he set himself to the task of strengthen- 
ing the republic's defenses as rapidly as possible and of aiding those 
nations upon whom we had to depend for allies if and when war broke 
on our land. 

The amendment of the Neutrality Act, the Lease-Lend policy, the 
Selective Service Act, the huge outlays of our army and navy, the 
acquisition and development of outlying air and naval bases — all were 
essential parts of the same large program for the defense of this 
country. 

These measures had to be taken in the face of a determined and 
even desperate opposition that professed to find no menace to the 
United States in the conquering march of Hitlerism and that preached 
mischievous doctrines of appeasement and isolationism. Some of 
these obstructive elements went to indefensible lengths in their 
attempts to thwart the President. A less resolute man might have 
faltered. A leader less certain of his diagnosis of the situation might 
have equivocated. Franklin D. Roosevelt neither faltered nor equivo- 
cated. He aroused the people with speeches of incomparable eloquence. 
He drove unwaveringly and effectively ahead with his program. 

Pearl Harbor was a serious disaster accomplished through the most 
shameless treachery ever perpetrated by one nation against another. 
But it would have been for this nation a fatal disaster if we had not 
had in the White House during the past ten years a President saga- 
cious enough to see the mounting peril and courageous enough to 
pursue a bold course in preparing for it. 

The wisdom of the President's defense program has been fully 
vindicated by events. Britain still survives as a formidable belligerent 
and a stout-hearted ally and Russia continues to occupy the attention 
of Hitler's mighty armies largely because our Lease-Lend policy has 
enabled this country to provide them with vital supplies. The most 
powerful American navy that ever flew the Stars and Stripes now 
ranges the seas and it is being steadily strengthened by the addition 
of new warships. The Selective Service Act enabled us to enter this 
war with the largest peace-time army in the nation's history. Our 
airplane production has already given to the United Nations 
equality in the air and the day is not far distant when parity will 
grow into increasingly overwhelming supremacy. 

The peril is still great. Although much has been done, much 

10 



146 Democratic Platform 

remains to be done. President Roosevelt has set for this country the 
largest production task which any nation has ever undertaken in all 
recorded history. Upon the output of our factories no less than upon 
the courage of our soldiers and sailors depend the safety of the 
republic and the salvation of civilization. This war can be won only 
through the unstinted sacrifices and the maximum exertions of the 
American people. The billions which we must expend and the priva- 
tions which we must endure are small prices to pay for our 
independence. 

To the winning of this war everything must be subordinated. But 
winning the war will not be enough. Our nation must take the lead 
in fashioning an enduring peace based on economic and political jus- 
tice and preserved by the concerted efforts of peace-loving countries. 

A quarter of a century ago a distinguished Democratic President 
had the vision of a world organized for peace and freed from the 
constant threat of war. He strove mightily to translate his vision 
into an effective instrument of international peace. His heroic efforts 
failed because the American people heeded the Republican counsels of 
isolationism. If he had prevailed, the world would have been spared 
its present agonies and perils. 

We salute the memory of Woodrow Wilson. We renew our faith 
in his vision. We rejoice that another Democratic President will have 
the opportunity to make that vision real in the life of the world. 

Today we dedicate the Democratic party of North Carolina anew to 
the service of the nation. To the President of the United States, we 
send our affectionate greetings and our assurances of deep respect and 
of unflagging loyalty. In no state has the support of his foreign and 
defense policies been more enthusiastic or more unwavering. North 
Carolina has never failed the republic in a time of danger. North 
Carolina will not fail today. There will be no stinting of our sacrifices, 
no grudging of our resources. 

North Carolina sons have already fallen in the nation's service. 
We grieve for them. Other North Carolinians are serving in all of 
the armed services of the nation and on all of the battlefronts of 
this world-girdling conflict. They will add new luster to North 
Carolina's glory. We pledge to them our solemn determination to 
play well the parts which are ours in this conflict. 

Honorable J. Melville Broughton came into the Governorship of 
North Carolina in succession to a long and unbroken line of uncom- 
monly able leaders whom the Democratic party had given to the 



Democratic Platform 147 

state. They had set a high and exacting standard of public service. 
They had led North Carolina out of the poverty and restricted oppor- 
tunities at the turn of the century into the larger life of the present. 

Governor Broughton has lived up to the exalted standard set 
by those who went before him. Building on the progress which they 
brought to the state, he has added new progress. He has proven that 
government can be both humane in its sympathies and business-like 
in its methods. His peculiarly intimate and accurate understanding 
of the state and its needs has enabled him to escape all sectionalism 
in thought and act and to promote the well-rounded advancement of 
the entire state. He has established his place among the great Gov- 
ernors of North Carolina. 

During the Broughton Administration the services of the state 
government to the people have been intensified and enlarged. Today 
the State of North Carolina is doing more to promote the happiness 
and prosperity of its citizens than it has ever done at any time in its 
history. 

These expansions in the state's activities and usefulness have 
been achieved without laying new tax or debt burdens on the people 
or without resort to imprudent fiscal practices. In the fiscal year 
ended June 30, 1941, the State of North Carolina retired, or provided 
funds to retire, eight million dollars of its debt. The 1941 General 
Assembly lifted the last remnant of the sales tax from the dinner 
table of the citizen. The budget has been kept annually balanced with 
a sizable surplus added for good measure. The state will end the 
current fiscal year with the largest cash surplus in its history. 

In the field of public education the achievements of the Broughton 
Administration have been particularly noteworthy. The 1941 General 
Assembly made provision for the gradual introduction of a twelve- 
year program for the public schools, increased the appropriation for 
vocational education, authorized significant adjustments in the 
teacher salary schedule and enacted legislation designed to insure 
the tenure of the competent teacher. During the next fiscal year the 
State of North Carolina will expend more than $30,000,000 on its 
public school system. 

The glory of our party, beginning with the administration of 
Governor Aycock in the new era following Fusion government and 
continuing through the leadership of all his successors, is its devotion 
to public education. We make the sacred pledge to continue this 



148 Democratic Platform 

advance by making provision for a nine months school for every 
child in the state. 

The 1941 General Assembly established a retirement system for 
all state employees, including the public school teachers. This system 
has been set up on the most generous basis, consistent with sound- 
ness. It is now in full and efficient operation. In providing a retire- 
ment plan for its faithful employees, North Carolina has taken her 
place among the most enlightened and progressive states of the 
Union. 

The last General Assembly submitted an amendment to the 
Constitution which would consolidate the various agencies which 
administer the public school system by the establishment of one 
central Board of Education. We heartily recommend and endorse 
this amendment. 

The North Carolina highway system is a huge enterprise, knitting 
the state together into one vast social and economic whole and 
serving the convenience and the profit of all. We commend the 
competent direction which it has received during the present 
administration and particularly the resorcefulness which the State 
Highway and Public Works Commission has shown in meeting the 
extraordinary problems created by the national emergency. Its 
prompt and whole-hearted cooperation with the federal government 
in providing road facilities for camps and other defense projects is 
deserving of the warmest praise. 

The health of the people is a proper and intimate concern of the 
state. We record with pride the fact that today North Carolina has 
a health program which is attracting nation-wide attention and 
approbation and a health administration which is alert, progressive 
and efficient. 

Agriculture is the very backbone of the economic life of North 
Carolina. It fixes the standard of living for a majority of our 
citizens. The 1941 General Assembly enacted legislation designed to 
better agriculture through more rigid inspections, improved market- 
ing arrangements, expanded agricultural research and the further 
development of the livestock industry. We endorse this legislation 
and the solicitous interest and the fruitful leadership which the 
Broughton Administration has brought to bear on the farm problems 
and opportunities of the state. 

Especially deserving of praise is the rural electrification program 
which is adding so much to the comfort and convenience of farm 



Democratic Platform 149 

life in North Carolina. Despite the obstacles presented by the 
national emergency, this program has gone steadily ahead during 
the last eighteen months, establishing a record of expansion unsur- 
passed in any other state of this republic. We commend these achieve- 
ments of the Broughton Administration and we pledge the continued 
support of the Democratic party to this beneficent program until 
electricity has been made accessible to every farm in this state. 

We recount with unusual pride the significant fact that defense 
production in North Carolina has not been interrupted or even 
adversely affected by any labor controversy. The strikes in the non- 
defense enterprises have been relatively few in number and brief in 
duration. This record in harmonious relationships between manage- 
ment and labor is without a parallel in any state of the Union. It is all 
more noteworthy because it was established at a time of unprece- 
dented industrial expansion and employment when sharp changes in 
living costs were creating wage problems. We congratulate the 
employers and employees on the patriotism and fair-mindedness 
which they have exhibited in composing their differences. We com- 
mend the Broughton Administration for the leadership which it has 
shown in establishing such a record for North Carolina. It has 
proven that through a statesmanlike state policy it is possible to 
reconcile the legitimate rights of labor and the legitimate interests 
of industry with the good order of the state and the production 
needs of the nation. 

We commend unconditionally the firm and direct measures taken 
by the Broughton Administration in dealing with state employees 
who committed breaches of trust. The guilty parties were brought to 
swift and stern but fully merited justice. When employees of a 
Democratic administration misapply public funds or connive at mis- 
appropriations, they betray the Democratic party no less than the 
state. The Democratic party will continue to insist upon the highest 
standards of official fidelity and upon the speedy and appropriate 
punishment of those who are guilty of official dishonesties or derelic- 
tions. 

At its last convention the Democratic party pledged its support to 
generous state aid for public libraries. The 1941 General Assembly 
fulfilled that promise by appropriating $100,000 for use in enlarging 
and extending the public library facilities in the state. As a conse- 
quence of this wise action, North Carolina is now assuming a position 



150 Democratic Platform 

of leadership among the states of the country in the provisions which 
it makes for a larger library service to all of the people. 

The first duty of an enlightened state is to preserve the public 
peace and to insure equal and exact justice to all persons. We com- 
mend the General Assembly for authorizing the establishment of the 
State Guard and the Broughton Administration for effecting the 
organization. The State Guard has already proven its value. It should 
be provided with more adequate facilities and equipment. Mob law is 
the very negation of justice. We applaud our law enforcement 
agencies for their timely and courageous actions in averting mob 
violence. We rejoice that the long no-lynching record of North Caro- 
lina has not been sullied. 

Some of the most useful activities of the state government are 
not spectacular. They concern themselves with the honest and 
capable performance of the multiplicity of day-to-day services, great 
and small, which the state must render to its people. A judiciary 
system must carry even-handed justice between citizen and citi- 
zen and between state and citizen into all the communities 
of the commonwealth. The industrial growth of the state must be 
promoted. The tourist industry which means so much to so many 
must be cultivated. A far-reaching program of public relief, touching 
with kindness and helpfulness the lives of thousands, must be con- 
tinued. Age-old problems of human frailty and waywardness must 
be ameliorated. When local disasters such as forest fires prove too 
much for local resources, the state must make haste with its 
assistance. 

These manifold duties, ramifying deep into the life of the people, 
have been discharged with an efficiency which merits the most unre- 
strained approval. Today North Carolina is enjoying not only pro- 
gressive government, but is enjoying competent government as well. 
Money taken from the people in taxes is being returned in helpful 
services. North Carolina is commanding a nation-wide reputation as 
one of the best governed states in the country. 

We wish especially to take public note of the unusual capacity with 
which the Broughton Administration has met the extraordinary 
problems created by the national crisis. We endorse whole-heartedly 
the Governor's stand for more adequate protection of our eastern 
shores against submarine depredations, and we commend his action 
in protesting any discrimination against the State of North Carolina 
in the gasoline rationing. Every request by the federal government 



Democratic Platform 151 

for state cooperation has been promptly and fully granted. A very 
comprehensive and efficient civilian defense organization has been 
established and the state has been placed on a war footing. 
Encouraged by the deep and eloquent interest exhibited by Governor 
Broughton, the people of North Carolina have responded generously 
to every appeal for every war cause. We commend the state govern- 
ment for whole-hearted and effective cooperation which it has 
extended local communities seeking the location of defense projects 
in their regions. 

This aggregate record in good government has been made possible 
by the excellent cooperation between all of the branches of the state 
government. All have worked together in a common desire and a 
common effort to translate Democratic promise into governmental 
performance and to give the people an efficient and responsive admin- 
istration of their affairs. We commend the General Assembly for the 
faithfulness with which it fulfilled all party pledges and for the 
wisdom it revealed in meeting and solving the state's legislative 
problems. We commend all of the other state officials for their compe- 
tent performance of their duties. 

These are unpredictable and sacrificial times. No person is wise 
enough to know what new problems will face the state in the 
uncertain months that lie ahead. At this critical juncture in the 
life of the republic, the nation's necessities must take precedence 
over every other consideration. 

There are certain assurances, however, which the people are 
entitled to receive and which we solemnly give: 

1. Their state government will be operated in accord with the 
soundest fiscal practices. The budget will be balanced and kept bal- 
anced. The state's credit which is unexcelled will be preserved. 

2. Present state taxes will not be increased. No new taxes will be 
levied. We will not add to the inescapably heavy federal tax burdens 
by imposing new state tax burdens. 

3. All of the essential services of the state government will be 
maintained at a high level of efficiency and honesty. 

4. There will be no extraordinary expansion in the state's normal 
activities and no substantial increase in the state's appropriations 
until every probable emergency has been taken into account and 
provided for. 



152 Democratic Platform 

5. The State of North Carolina will continue to promote agricul- 
ture with wise legislation and intelligent and beneficial administra- 
tion. 

6. There will be no retrenchment at the expense of the quality of 
the education which the state provides for its children. Whatever the 
sacrifices of this emergency may be for state or for individual, they 
must not express themselves in any curtailment of the educational 
opportunities which we offer to our children. We must safeguard 
North Carolina's future by the proper training of North Carolina's 
children of today. 

7. The state government will continue to cooperate whole- 
heartedly and effectively with the federal government in every 
activity that will contribute to the successful conduct of the war. 

8. We accept the duties of the state administration in no spirit 
of narrow partisanship. The responsibility of leadership is ours by 
the mandate of the people and we cannot shift or shirk that responsi- 
bility. But we invite the patriotic cooperation of the members of all 
parties in meeting and mastering the problems that spring out of the 
nation's dangers. 

Above all, we promise the people of North Carolina that their state 
government will meet the changing circumstances of these changing 
times with a high sense of duty and with courage and patriotism.

vention in each County in the State for the purpose of electing dele- 
gates to the State Convention. 

Sec. 12. Immediately upon the adjournment of the said State 
Democratic Executive Committee it shall be the duty of the chairman 
of said committee to publish the proceedings of the same and of the 
secretary thereof to notify, in writing, the several chairmen of the 
County Democratic Executive Committees in the State of the respec- 
tive dates so fixed for the holding of precinct meetings and County 
Conventions. Upon the receipt of such notice it shall be the duty of 



Plan of Organization 155 

the chairman of the County Democratic Executive Committees in the 
State to call meetings of their respective County Democratic Execu- 
tive Committees on a day to be named by him, not exceeding fifteen 
days after the receipt by him of said notice. 

County and Precinct Organization 

Sec. 13. The Unit of County organization shall be the voting pre- 
cinct. In each precinct there shall be an Executive Committee, to 
consist of five active Democrats, who shall be elected by the Demo- 
cratic voters at the several precinct meetings or primary elections or 
county conventions in mass, called by the County Executive Commit- 
tee, as hereinafter provided for the nomination of candidates for 
legislative, county and township offices. And said committee so 
elected shall elect one of its members as Chairman, who shall pre- 
side at all committee meetings. At least one woman shall be elected to 
membership on each precinct executive committee. Each such com- 
mittee shall have a vice chairman, and either the chairman or the 
vice chairman shall be a woman. 

Sec. 14. The Chairman of the several precinct committees shall 
compose the County Executive Committee, which shall meet at the 
same time and place as the County Convention first held in each 
election year, and elect a Chairman who shall hold his office until his 
successor shall be elected. Said County Executive Committee shall 
immediately after the election of a Chairman, elect one or more Vice 
Chairmen, the first of which shall be a woman, and if more than one 
Vice Chairman, the order of their succession shall be designated, 
and a Secretary. Said Chairman, Vice Chairman or Vice Chairmen, 
or Secretary, need not be members of the County Executive Commit- 
tee. If, for any reason there should occur any vacancy in the Chair- 
manship of a County Executive Committee, by death, resignation, or 
removal, or if such Chairman should be incapacitated or should fail 
or refuse to act, then the Vice Chairman or Vice Chairmen, in their 
order of succession, and thereafter the Secretary, shall, in such order 
of succession, be vested with the full authority and power of the 
Chairman until such time as said County Executive Committee has 
met and duly elected a successor to such Chairman. A majority of 
said Precinct Chairmen, in person or by proxy in the person of 
some active Democrat of the Precinct in which an absent Chairman 
resides, shall constitute a quorum. The County Executive Commit- 



156 Plan of Organization 

tee may appoint a central committee of five who shall act in its stead 
when the County Executive Committee is not in session. 

Sec. 14-A. Any County Chairman of a County Executive Committee, 
who announces his candidacy for any elective office in the Primary, 
shall immediately resign his office as Chairman and the same shall be 
filled as hereinbefore provided. 

Sec. 15. In case there shall be a failure on the part of any pre- 
cinct to elect its Executive Committee for a period of thirty days, the 
County Executive Committee shall appoint said committee from the 
Democratic voters of said precinct. 

Sec. 16. The State Democratic Executive Committee shall have 
the power to fill all vacancies occurring in said committee; vacancies 
occurring in Congressional, Judicial and Senatorial Committees shall 
be filled by the Executive Committee of the county in which said 
vacancy occurs; precinct committees shall fill all vacancies occurring 
in their respective committee. 

Delegates to Conventions — County and State 

Sec. 17. The State Convention shall be composed of delegates 
appointed by the several County Conventions. Each county in the 
State shall be entitled to elect to the State Convention one delegate 
and one alternate for every 150 Democratic votes and one delegate 
and one alternate for fractions over 75 Democratic votes cast therein 
for Governor at the last preceding gubernatorial election. 

Sec. 18. All County Conventions shall be called to order by the 
chairman of the Executive Committee of such county, and in his 
absence, by any member of the Executive Committee who may be 
present at the convention, and in case neither the chairman nor a 
member of the Executive Committee is present, then by any delegate 
to said convention, and he shall preside until a permanent chairman 
is elected by the convention. 

State Convention Rules 

Sec. 19. A preliminary meeting of the delegates shall be held by 
each Congressional District on the morning of the State Convention, 
at rooms to be designated by the State Executive Committee, for the 
purpose of selecting the following committees and officers of the 
convention: 



Plan of Organization 157 

1. One member of the Committee on Credentials and Appeals. 

2. One member of the Committee on Permanent Organization, Rules,

5. One member of the Committee on Resolutions and Platform. 

6. Twelve members of the State Democratic Executive Committee. 

7. One member for each county of the Congressional, Judicial, and 
Senatorial Executive Committees. 

Sec. 20. Such delegates (or alternates of absent delegates) as may 
be present at any Democratic Convention shall be allowed to cast the 
whole vote to which their precinct or county may be entitled. 

Sec. 21. In all conventions provided for by this plan, after a vote 
is cast, there shall be no change in such vote until the final result of 
the ballot shall be announced by the chairman of said convention. 

Sec. 22. The chairman of the different county conventions shall 
certify the list of delegates and alternates to the State Convention, 
and a certified list of said delegates and alternates to the secretary of 
the State Executive Committee. 

Sec. 23. The secretary of the State Democratic Executive Commit- 
tee shall make up a roll of all delegates and alternates from the sev- 
eral counties and transmit the same to the chairman of the State 
Convention. 

Sec. 24. In all conventions a nomination may be made by any 
majority, even though it be a fraction of a vote. 

Sec. 25. In all State Conventions it shall be the duty of the dele- 
gates from the several counties to choose one of their number chair- 
man, whose name shall be reported to the president of such conven- 
tion, and whose duty it shall be to cast the vote of his county as 
directed, and the vote as announced by him shall be recorded unless 
some delegate from that county shall challenge its accuracy, in which 
event it shall be the duty of the president of the convention to cause 
the roll of delegates from that county to be called, when the vote of 
such county shall be tabulated and recorded according to the re- 
sponse of its delegates; but in no event shall the vote of one county be 
challenged by a delegate from another county. 



158 Plan of Organization 

nomination of candidates for house of representatives, county 
and Township Officers in Counties Not Under Primary Law 

Sec. 26. In all counties in which the selection of candidates for 
members of the House of Representatives and county and township 
offices is not provided for by law, nominations shall be made in the 
following manner: The County Democratic Executive Committee, on 
the day of the county convention hereinbefore provided for, shall 
meet and set a date on which a county convention for the nomination 
of candidates for such offices shall be held, and at such meeting said 
Executive Committee shall determine upon a plan for nominating 
such candidates and may select either of the following methods: 

1. By precinct meetings. 

2. By primary elections. 

. 3. By county conventions (in mass). 
Provided, that unless the said committee shall adopt one of the 
three plans the first or precinct meeting plan shall be followed. 

Rotation of State Senators in Districts Composed of More 

Than One County 

Sec. 26-A. That in all State Senatorial Districts composed of 
more than one County, in which it has been the custom to concede 
the right to nominate a Senator to one County of the district, by a 
plan of rotation or otherwise, and in which such plan was followed in 
the Primary Election of 1936, the same shall remain in full force and 
effect until terminated as herein provided. 

The Executive Committees of the several counties composing such 
Senatorial District may hereafter adopt a plan for the nomination of 
candidates for the State Senate by one or more counties composing 
such district, but such plan shall not be effective until the Executive 
Committee of each of the counties composing the district shall, by a 
majority vote, approve such plan and file with the Chairman of the 
State Executive Committee a copy of the resolution approving the 
same. The agreement in any Senatorial district composed of only two 
counties may be terminated by a majority vote of the County Execu- 
tive Committee of any one of the counties and in districts of more 
than two counties by a majority vote of each of the Executive Com- 
mittees of at least two counties, provided that notice of the termina- 
tion of such agreement must be filed with the Chairman of the State 
Executive Committee at least 120 days in advance of the date of the 



Plan of Organization 159 

primary election at which the candidates for the General Assembly 
are to be nominated. The Chairman of the State Executive Commit- 
tee shall promptly notify the State Board of Elections of all such 
agreements and of the termination thereof. 

First Method — Precinct Meetings 

Sec. 27. If at the meeting of the County Democratic Executive 
Committee, as herein required, it shall be determined by a majority 
of the full committee, proxies not counted, to nominate candidates 
by delegates chosen at the precinct meeting, then the precinct meeting 
shall be held under the following rules and regulations. 

Sec. 28. At the meeting held in each precinct in pursuance to said 
notice, delegates and alternates to represent it in the County Conven- 
tion shall be elected from the body of the Democratic voters of the 
precinct; and said delegates or alternates, or such of them as shall 
attend the County Convention shall be entitled to vote the full Demo- 
cratic strength of their precinct in the nomination of candidates and 
upon all questions which may come before said County Convention. 

If there is a failure to hold a precinct meeting in pursuance of 
said notice, or if said meeting shall fail to elect delegates to represent 
it in said convention, the precinct executive committee shall appoint 
delegates and alternates from the Democratic voters of the precinct. 

At every precinct meeting there shall, if requested, be a vote taken 
for the different candidates for office whose names may be presented, 
and the delegates shall vote in the County Convention of their 
respective counties in accordance with this vote; that is to say, each 
candidate shall receive in the County Convention that proportion of 
the vote to which the precinct may be entitled which he received in 
the precinct meeting, and the vote received by any candidate in the 
precinct meeting shall not be changed unless by a two-thirds vote of 
the delegates representing said candidates from said precinct. The 
chairman or presiding officer and secretary of the precinct meeting 
shall certify to the County Convention the vote received by each 
candidate at the precinct meeting, together with the names of dele- 
gates and alternates selected by said meeting. 

Sec. 29. Each precinct shall be entitled to cast in the County 
Convention one vote for every 25 Democratic votes, and one vote for 
fractions over 12 Democratic votes cast by the precinct for Gov- 
ernor at the last preceding gubernatorial election: Provided that 



160 Plan of Organization 

every precinct shall be entitled to cast at least one vote in the County 
Convention, and each precinct may appoint as many delegates to 
said convention as it may see fit, not exceeding three delegates and 
three alternates for each vote to which said precinct may be entitled 
in the County Convention. 

Sec. 30. The Chairman of the Precinct Executive Committee shall 
preside at all precinct meetings; but in the absence of the chairman 
of said committee, any other member thereof may preside. 

Sec. 31. The County Executive Committee shall have power to 
make any rules with regard to holding precinct meetings which it 
may deem proper, not inconsistent with the rules prescribed in this 
plan; it shall be the duty of said committee to prepare and furnish 
all forms and blanks needed in making the returns from said pre- 
cinct meeting, and any reported challenges and appeals therefrom; 
and it shall have the power to raise the funds necessary to pay the 
expenses thereof. 

Second Method — Primary Elections 

Sec. 32. If at the meeting of the County Democratic Executive 
Committee, provided for in this plan of organization, it shall be 
determined by a majority of the full committee, proxies not counted, 
to nominate candidates by direct primary election and select dele- 
gates to the County Convention then the same shall be held under the 
following rules and regulations: 

Sec. 33. At all primary elections held under this plan the county 
shall be the unit and the total vote cast throughout the county shall 
control the nomination. 

Sec. 34. At least five days preceding such primary election every 
person desiring to become a candidate for any county, township, or 
legislative office shall signify his intention, in writing, to the Chair- 
man of the County Democratic Executive Committee, and at the same 
time shall deposit such fee as the said chairman may determine to 
be his pro rata part of the expense of printing and distributing proper 
tickets; and every such person shall also subscribe to a pledge that he 
will abide by the result of the primary election and support the suc- 
cessful candidate or candidates chosen in said primary election. 

Sec. 35. When a primary election under this plan shall be ordered, 
notice thereof, giving the date and the various balloting places, and 
the names of the persons appointed to hold the same, shall be pub- 



Plan of Organization 161 

lished in the Democratic press of said county and copies posted at 
three places in each precinct or township, and such other notice given 
as the County Executive Committee may think proper, which notice 
shall not in any case be less than twenty days. In such primary elec- 
tion the County Executive Committee shall designate the places where 
voting shall be had, and they shall select, as far as practicable, the 
places provided by law for holding the general State elections. They 
may, however, select other places if the convenience of Democratic 
voters justifies such change, but there shall be at least one voting 
place in each precinct. 

Sec. 36. For the purpose of holding such primary election, the 
said committee shall appoint three well-known Democratic electors 
of intelligence and reputation for honesty and fair dealing for each 
precinct or other voting district in the county, one of whom shall be 
the secretary and record the names of all the persons voting, who 
shall conduct such election, receive the ballots, count them, declare 
the result and make a written statement thereof. If any person 
appointed to hold a primary election shall decline to serve, become 
incapacitated, or become a candidate before said primary, the chair- 
man of the Executive Committee of that township or precinct shall 
have power to designate some qualified Democrat to fill such place; 
and if the chairman of the committee shall not be present, then the 
remaining poll-holders may designate some person to assist them in 
holding the same, and such substituted person shall have the same 
right and authority therein as if he had been originally appointed by 
the County Executive Committee. 

Sec. 37. The said poll-holders shall provide such boxes for the 
reception of ballots as may be necessary, but there shall be separate 
boxes for the following classes of candidates, to wit: Candidates for 
General Assembly and all county offices in one box; all township 
officers in one box; the Township Executive Committee in one box 
and the delegates to the County Convention in one box. The hours 
for holding such primary election shall be as follows: From 10 o'clock 
a.m. to 5 o'clock p.m.; Provided, that the County Executive Commit- 
tee may designate other hours within which said primary election 
may held; but in no case shall the time for holding such election 
be less than four hours. 

Sec. 38. Any Democratic candidate who is voted for in said pri- 
mary election may attend the same, in person or by representatives, 
ii 



162 Plan of Organization 

and be present during the conduct of said election and counting the 
vote. Every Democratic elector shall have the right to vote at his 
proper polling place, and in case the vote of a man claiming to be a 
Democratic elector is challenged on the ground that he is not qualified 
as an elector, and will not be on election day, or is not a Democrat, 
he shall not be denied the privilege of voting except by the judg- 
ment of a majority of the poll-holders. Every challenge shall be 
recorded, and any candidate or his representative dissatisfied with 
the result shall have the right to appeal to the County Convention, 
and the County Convention shall hear the same and allow or disallow 
the vote, and shall amend the returns from that precinct in accord- 
ance with its judgment. 

Sec. 39. At the close of the voting it shall be the duty of the poll- 
holders, in the presence of such candidates or their representatives 
and any Democrat who wishes to attend, to proceed at once to count 
the ballots and make a list of all persons voted for and the offices for 
which they were voted, and the number of votes received by each, and 
they shall sign such list and send the same immediately to the chair- 
man of the County Executive Committee, who shall transmit the 
same to the chairman of the County Convention. They shall give any 
candidate or his representative, upon his request, a copy of the said 
list, and they shall also give to the chairman of the County Executive 
Committee a statement of the number of challenges allowed or 
disallowed, and how said challenged voter voted or how he offered to 
vote when challenged. They shall also preserve the list of voters or 
poll-books, the tally-sheets, and the tickets until after the County 
Convention. 

Sec. 40. At the meeting of the County Convention following the 
holding of such primary election, the said convention shall ascertain 
and declare the result of the said primary election. All candidates 
for county and legislative offices and all delegates and committeemen 
receiving a majority of the votes case in such primary election shall 
be declared the nominees of the party for said offices: Provided, that 
at the time the primary election is called the County Executive Com- 
mittee shall prescribe the rules and regulations for a second primary 
election, if one shall be deemed necessary. 

Sec. 41. It shall be the duty of the chairman of the County Demo- 
cratic Executive Committee to prepare all tickets for county and 
legislative offices, and distribute them. All names voted for in the 



Plan of Organization HI:'. 

same box shall be printed on one ticket, and the ballot shall be 
checked with a cross mark opposite the name or names the elector 
wishes to vote for, or the names which he does not wish to vote for 
shall be stricken out. If more names are voted for than is proper 
for any office, the said ticket for such office shall not be counted. 

Sec. 42. The County Democratic Executive Committee may, at its 
discretion, order a registration of all Democratic electors for each 
precinct in any town or city in said county having a population of 
3,000 or over, by giving the same notice and complying with the regu- 
lations prescribed by law for the registration of voters at general elec- 
tions, as nearly as may be practicable. 

Sec. 43. The County Executive Committee shall have the right to 
make any rules with regard to holding primary elections which it 
may deem proper, not inconsistent with the rules prescribed in this 
plan. It shall be the duty of the Executive Committee to prepare and 
furnish all blanks and forms needed in making the returns from said 
primary elections, and any reported challenges and appeals there- 
from. It shall have power to provide for raising the funds necessary 
to pay the expenses thereof. 

Third Method — County Convention (In Mass) 

Sec. 44. If at the meeting of the County Democratic Executive 
Committee it shall be determined, by a majority of the full committee, 
to nominate candidates for county and legislative offices, or either of 
them, by a convention of all Democratic electors in said county, 
then the said convention, in mass, shall be held under the following 
rules and regulations: 

Sec. 45. The chairman of the County Executive Committee shall 
give at least twenty days' notice of such convention in the Democratic 
press and by posters at the courthouse door and three public places 
in each precinct or township. 

Sec. 46. In such convention the voting strength of each precinct 
or township shall be preserved as a unit, and all Democratic electors 
present from any precinct or township shall segregate themselves 
from the rest of the convention and express their choice for the sev- 
eral candidates and delegates by count or ballot, as may be deemed 
most practicable, and the vote of such precinct or township shall 
be cast accordingly. 



164 Plan of Organization 

Sec. 47. The chairman shall provide the convention with a suffi- 
cient number of secretaries or ready accountants, who shall reduce 
the votes to decimals and tabulate the same, disregarding all frac- 
tions after the second or hundredth column. 

Sec. 48. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the convention 
from making nomination by viva voce or acclamation where a vote 
by township or precinct is not demanded by any Democratic elector 
present. 

Sec. 49. The County Democratic Executive Committee shall have 
the power to make such other rules and regulations for the holding of 
county conventions in mass, not inconsistent herewith, as may be 
deemed necessary or expedient. 

Appointment of Democratic Members of County 
Board of Elections 

Sec. 49-A. The Chairman of the Democratic Executive Committee 
in each county shall, before submitting to the State Chairman, recom- 
mendations as to Democratic members of the County Board of Elec- 
tions in such County, call a meeting of the Democratic Executive 
Committee of the County and submit such recommendations for 
the approval of the Executive Committee, and only when such rec- 
ommendations are approved by a majority of the Committee present, 
shall same be submitted to the State Chairman by the County Chair- 
men. The time of such meeting of the respective County Executive 
Committees for the purpose of passing on such recommendations shall 
be fixed by the State Chairman. 

Miscellaneous Provisions 

Sec. 50. In the several counties of the State where primaries are 
provided for by law, whether optional or mandatory, this plan of 
organization shall nevertheless be followed in all matters not incon- 
sistent with such laws. 

Sec. 51. In the nomination of candidates for municipal offices to 
be voted for in the town and city elections, where the same is not 
controlled by charter, or legislative enactment, the Democratic Execu- 
tive Committee of such town or city shall by a majority vote of the 
full committee, determine whether to hold precinct meetings, a pri- 
mary election, or mass conventions under the appropriate rules and 
regulations prescribed in this plan of organization for the same. 



Plan of Organization 165 

•

the manner in which such vacancy shall be filled. 

Sec. 53. The right of appeal shall lie from any subordinate com- 
mittee or convention to the committee or convention next superior

reports of such committee had before action thereon by the con- 
vention. 

Sec. 54. It shall be the duty of the County Executive Committees

REPUBLICAN STATE PLATFORM 1942 

The Republican Party has always hated tyranny and any system of 
government that creates political and economic slavery. It has always 
loved freedom and liberty. Its first great mission was to free an 
enslaved people. Its greatest and most immediate duty now is to help 
free the world from the Hitlerism of Europe and the treacherous mili- 
tarism of the Japanese Empire. Its greatest objective now is to win 
the war and to preserve America as the greatest, freest nation on 
earth. To that sacred but difficult task the Republican Party this day 
dedicates its heart and mind and strength. 

The Republican Party of North Carolina has certain definite ideas 
with regard to the proper prosecution of the war in which we are now 
engaged. In the interest of national unity it does not desire at this 
time to criticize the present administration in Washington for mis- 
takes and errors already completed. It considers itself free, however, 
and we consider it our patriotic duty to criticize those errors and 
unwise policies of the Administration which are now continuing and 
which are now a severe handicap to the vigorous and intelligent 
prosecution of the war. We consider it unpatriotic and cowardly for a 
minority party to hold its tongue while the party in charge of the 
administration of the government pursues policies which can only 
lead to confusion and defeats and the loss of needless numbers of 
lives. The Republican Party in the nation has never been in power 
at the beginning or the completion of any devastating world war. 
It has managed at all times, with the exception of the short war with 
Spain, to steer the Ship of State safely through troubled waters. Yet 
it has demonstrated in both world wars its patriotism and loyalty to 
the government. It has furnished its Hoovers and Pershings, its 
MacArthurs and Willkies and Martins. It has given its millions of 
soldiers, its greatest business executives, its farmers and laborers and 
its billions of dollars in taxes. 

Winning the War 

In order that the war may be won as quickly as possible with the 
loss of no more of our courageous sons than is absolutely necessary — 
in order that the vaunted conquering power and might of the German 
Reich and the Empire of Japan may be forever crushed so that the 
world may see the sunshine of peace again, we favor: 

[181] 



,s - Republican Platform 

(1) The immediate passage by Congress of a law outlawing strikes 
in all industrial plants engaged in the manufacture of ships, air- 
planes, tanks, guns and essential war materials. 

(2) An immediate and drastic cut in all non-defense spending, 
including the elimination of the WPA, the CCC, and all other unnec- 
cessary alphabetical agencies, provided that all persons who because 
of their age or physical infirmities are unable to secure jobs in 
private employment shall not be allowed to suffer. We maintain that 
the further existence of these spending projects is unwise and entirely 
unnecessary at a time when there is a scarcity of labor on the farm 
where our food must be produced and in our industrial plants 
where our defense needs must be rapidly supplied. 

(3) The immediate cessation by the President and his Administra- 
tion of the petting and pampering of one particular class of our people 
over another and of their unfriendly attitude toward business. We say 
that when America is fighting for its life, no President has the right 
to create and maintain a favored class, whether it be composed 
of laborers or farmers or businessmen. The Republicans of North 
Carolina say that there should be only one favored class in this 
perilous hour — the soldiers, the sailors and the marines. 

(4) We favor the maintenance of an eight-hour day in all non- 
defense industries, but we urge a sufficient number of working 
hours in defense plants that will insure an adequate supply of ships, 
airplanes, guns, tanks and other war materials with which to stop 
immediately the further aggression of our enemies in the Pacific 
and elsewhere. 

(5) We demand the prompt discard of the doctrine of scarcity. 
The New Deal theory that we can become rich by producing less has 
proved itself simple-minded and tragic. We condemn the New Deal 
policy of paying the western farmers not to raise sugar beets which 
has resulted in the present sugar shortage. At this very hour this 
administration is limiting the acreage of cotton planted by our 
farmers in the very face of the fact that some of our best informed 
cotton authorities have announced that we will have a serious short- 
age of that essential commodity in 1943. We demand that our 
President and his Administration give the farmer back his freedom. 
He never wanted to be a slave anyway. The New Deal that tried to 
bribe the farmer with one hand handcuffed him with the other. 
Let the farmer be free again to raise for a hungry, starving world 



Republican Platform 1 S.°> 

all the food that his honest toil and sweat and God's sunshine 
and rain will produce. 

(6) We urge the creation of a real spirit of unity in this dark hour 
by the appointment by our President of the best brains of our 
country to the important positions in government involving the 
proper prosecution of the war. We call upon our President to name 
to his Cabinet and to the other important positions of power men of 
the type of Herbert Hoover, Wendell Willkie, Thomas Dewey, Henry 
Ford, Jim Farley and others — men who have the confidence of the 
people of America — men whose business and professional experience 
qualify them to manage the great tasks of production, distribution 
and government. We believe our people would find new hope and 
courage if men like these would replace the Hopkinses, the Hender- 
sons, the Perkinses, the Biddies and the Hillmans. 

(7) We call upon the Administration to adopt a courageous and 
impartial labor policy that will provide the same restraints and privi- 
leges for the laborer, the businessman and farmer. 

(8) We plead for restoration of our government from the hands of 
professional labor leaders back to the people of all classes. 

(9) We favor the right of labor to bargain collectively and the 
further right of the laborer to join, to refrain from joining, or to 
withdraw from, the membership of any union without fear of losing 
his job. 

(10) The Republican Party approves of such expenditures of money, 
however vast, that are necessary to manufacture and transport the 
implements of war. Mere spending of money, however, will not win 
the war. There must be an efficient elimination of all waste, and the 
Administration must keep in mind that every dollar spent during 
the war boom will have to be paid, unless repudiated, in the uncertain 
days following the war. We therefore call upon our national and state 
government to eliminate all waste and extravagance in all depart- 
ments, to cut off all unnecessary and useless government employees 
and to assist otherwise in the lightening of the tremendous burden 
of taxation that has fallen upon the backs of all our people and that is 
becoming daily heavier and harder to carry. We also warn the 
present National Administration and all of the people of America that 
no free nation has ever been able to conduct and win a war, even for 
its own freedom, when its treasury was bankrupt, or its resources 
squandered or dissipated. 



1 s 4 Republican Platform 

(11) We condemn the letting of improvident war contracts by the 
Administration whereby unconscionable profits and commissions 
accrue to political and personal favorites of key men connected with 
the Administration. 

(12) The Republican Party points out to the people of North Caro- 
lina that there are forces at work that if not checked will result in 
the destruction here at home of that freedom that we are fighting 
abroad to preserve. We call attention to careless and sweeping restric- 
tions on production and distribution entirely unconnected with the 
war effort, that if continued must inevitably lead to disaster to our 
social order beyond prediction. We recognize the necessity of put- 
ting the war effort over but we condemn in the strongest terms possi- 
ble the apparent use of the war as a cloak for socialistic experimenta- 
tion and sweeping regimentation for regimentation's sake. In this 
connection we say to the farmers of North Carolina: "The New Deal 
poses as your friend. Yet it holds down the prices of your products 
below the level of a fair return and undertakes to make up the differ- 
ence by government handouts, thus seeking to destroy the traditional 
liberty of the American farmer and make him dependent upon the 
whims and charity of the Federal government for his existence." 
Only that regulation should be tolerated which is indispensable to the 
war effort. 

After the War 

The Republican Party of North Carolina realizes that the war will 
some day be over. Our great country will be the victor, but this victory 
will have been won at a great cost in lives and property. Hundreds of 
thousands of our finest men will never set foot again upon the shores 
of their native land. This tremendous cost in blood and money will 
have been too great unless the government that is turned over to those 
who do come back is a free government where free men and free 
enterprise still prevail. Nothing could be more tragic, more deceptive 
than for those who return to find a land that has lost its freedom by 
surrendering it in an emergency to those who loved power so much 
that they were unwilling to relinquish it when the war was over. 
Men should not be allowed to die in World War II if those who 
survive are to be made servants of the State thereafter. America will 
not be free unless its citizens have equal rights, enforceable in 
unpacked and unprejudiced courts. It will not be free if the oppor- 
tunity to acquire and accumulate property is not afforded to its people 



Republican Platform 185 

It will not be free if any one class of its citizenship is deliberately 
destroyed by taxation for the benefit of another class or if the Ameri- 
can people are left in a political and economic strait-jacket, with their 
welfares dependent upon the whims and theories of an all-powerful 
state. 

The Republican Party pledges to those who risk their lives for their 
country a free America after the war. To that one great proposition it 
dedicates itself and the last ounce of its energy in the greatest of 
all battles that is to come. We challenge that substantial portion of 
Democratic voters in the State of North Carolina who believe with us 
in the great system of free enterprise and free men to join with us to 
preserve those cherished and essential heritages of the American 
way. 

The Republican Party further pledges that it will use its finest 
brains after the war to work out a just and permanent peace and to 
prevent the recurrence of the awful tragedy of war in the years 
ahead. 

STATE AFFAIRS 

Intoxicating Liquors 

We restate with renewed emphasis our belief that no intoxicating 
liquors should be manufactured or sold within the State of North 
Carolina unless and until the same shall be approved by a State 
referendum. We believe further that the State Legislature should 
pass adequate laws to prohibit the sale of intoxicants within a radius 
of fifty miles of any army camp located within the State. Liquor is a 
serious handicap to the winning of the war, and we especially oppose 
the use of millions of pounds of sugar in its manufacture when sugar 
is being rationed in our homes. 

Absentee Ballot 

We demand the repeal of the absentee ballot in general elections. 
We say that no law can be drawn that will prevent fraud and profes- 
sional absentee racketeering in elections by unscrupulous political 
henchmen whose illegal acts and forgeries are protected and condoned 
by over-zealous party leaders in charge of election machinery in 
many of the counties of our State. We recommend, however, that 
provision be made for absentee voting by our armed forces, with 
proper safeguards to see that their votes are cast in the ballot boxes as 
they were originally marked by them. 



186 Republican Platform 



Election Laws 

We challenge the Legislature of North Carolina to revise the 
election laws of the state to the end that the members of the 
minority party therein may be accorded the same opportunity to 
register and vote as are the members of the majority party. No elec- 
tion is either free or fair when a different standard is set for voters 
of different political faiths. "We say to the Democratic Governor and 
the Democratic members of the Legislature in 1942: "Now that 
Republican soldiers are dying in Australia and other parts of the 
world to preserve freedom, give us that freedom here in North Caro- 
lina in a free, fair ballot." 

Education and Highways 

We favor a nine months' term for our public school system, but 
we condemn the practice of attempting to force school-teachers, em- 
ployees of the State Highway Commission, or other state employees 
to affiliate with any political party. We favor a bi-partisan State 
Highway Commission and State Board of Education. 

Judiciary 

We favor a non-partisan judiciary in the Superior and Supreme 
Courts of North Carolina. 

Exemption op Soldiers' Salaries 

In appreciation of the services and sacrifices being made and to be 
made by our soldiers in defense of our union, we favor that the sal- 
aries paid to our soldiers be exempted from state and national 
income taxation. 

Embezzlement in Revenue Department 

It is apparent that the best possible government cannot be obtained 
when there is continual and uninterrupted domination by a single 
political party. If this truism needed any further reinforcement, 
shocking proof has come to light in the recent sorry state of affairs 
uncovered in our Revenue Department where employees old in the 
service have confessed to long continued fraud and embezzlement. We 
denounce the wholesale stealing and misappropriation of the tax- 
payers' money in the North Carolina State Departments that has 



Republican Platform 187 

existed under the Democratic Party for the past several years, as 
recently shown by convictions in the criminal court of Wake County. 
We demand that Governor Broughton immediately appoint a non- 
partisan, impartial and capable committee to investigate all of the 
state departments and report its findings to the Governor of North 
Carolina and the Wake County Grand Jury for proper action. It is 
therefore the duty and privilege of all citizens of independent minds 
and free consciences to encourage the further growth of the Republi- 
can Party in North Carolina until it has become so strong that the 
dominant party will know that when it fails to perform the proper 
functions of a party in giving the state clean and economical gov- 
ernment, it will be ingloriously overthrown and driven from power. 

Local Self-Govern ment 

We condemn the unsportsmanlike practice of the Democratic Party 
in taking away from the people in Republican counties the right of 
local self-government. We say that such conduct on the part of any 
party is reprehensible and unworthy of any free people. We call upon 
the Democratic Governor and Legislature to repeal these brutal, 
indefensible laws, which, in the heat of partnership, were blows 
struck at the very heart of Liberty. 

We pledge to the people of our state an honest, courageous, patriotic 
and intelligent Republican Party, which, if entrusted with power, will 
devote its energies and heart and soul to the true interests of the 
people of the State of North Carolina and of the United States. 



PLAN OF ORGANIZATION OF THE REPUBLICAN 
PARTY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Adopted in Convention, 1940, at Charlotte 

ARTICLE I 

The Precinct as a Unit 

The unit of party action shall be the election precinct. In each 
precinct there shall be elected an Executive Committee of five voters, 
one of whom shall be designated as Chairman, and another as Vice 
Chairman, who shall be a woman. There shall also be elected a Secre- 
tary. The member of the Precinct Committee, the Chairman, Vice 
Chairman, and Secretary, shall hold their places for two years from 
date of their election, and until their successors are chosen. There 
shall be a precinct meeting in each precinct in each election year, to 
be called by the Chairman of the County Executive Committee, who 
shall designate the time and place of holding the precinct meetings, 
after giving ten days' notice thereof, and the voters of each precinct 
in such meeting assembled shall organize the precinct, by the election 
of a precinct executive committee, precinct chairman, vice chairman, 
and secretary, and such precinct meetings shall also elect one delegate 
and one alternate to the County Convention (to be called as herein- 
after provided), for each fifty votes or fraction thereof cast for the 
Republican candidate for Governor at the latest election. In addition 
to the regular precinct meetings in each election year, others are to 
be called and held as often as necessary at such times and places as 
will be designated by the Chairman of the Precinct Committee, or in 
the absence of the Chairman, by any other members of the Committee, 
after first giving ten days' notice of such meeting. 

That in the event any Chairman of any Precinct fails to act, then 
the Chairman of the County Executive Committee shall have the 
power to appoint some one in his or her place. 

ARTICLE II 

County Conventions and County Committees 

(1) A County Convention shall be called in each election year by 
the Chairman of the County Executive Committee, who shall desig- 

[188] 



Plan of Organization 189 

nate the time and place for holding same, after giving ten days' 
notice thereof, and the delegates and alternates elected at the precinct 
meetings, called and held as heretofore directed, shall sit as dele- 
gates and alternates in the County Convention. The County Conven- 
tion shall choose a Chairman, and a Vice Chairman, who shall be a 
woman, and other officers, all of whom shall be qualified voters in the 
County. A County Executive Committee of five or more voters shall 
be chosen in such County Convention, who shall hold their places 
for a term of two years, and until their successors are elected. Such 
biennial County Convention shall elect one delegate and one alternate 
to the State, Congressional, Judicial, and Senatorial Conventions, for 
every two hundred votes, or fraction thereof, cast for the Republican 
nominee for Governor at the latest election. The notice of ten days 
required for the holding of precinct meetings to be given by the 
County Chairman, and the ten days' notice required for the call 
of the County Convention by the County Chairman in election years 
may run concurrently, and the notice of the precinct meetings 
designating the time and place for the holding of the same may be 
included in the call for the regular biennial County Convention in 
election years, to be issued by the County Chairman. 

(2) That if one-third of the members of the County Executive 
Committee shall desire a meeting of the County Executive Com- 
mittee, it shall be the duty of Chairman of the County Executive Com- 
mittee to call said meeting; and if said Chairman shall fail or 
refuse to call said meeting upon petition of one-third of the mem- 
bers, then one-third of the members may call a meeting of the 
County Executive Committee by giving to the Chairman and Secre- 
tary and the members of the County Executive Committee at least 
five days' notice. 

(3) For good cause shown, any Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secre- 
tary, or member of the County Executive Committee may be removed 
from his or her position upon a vote of two-thirds of the members 
of the County Executive Committee at a regular or called meeting 
as herein provided, but said cause for removal shall be confined to 
inefficiency and party disloyalty. Upon the removal of any Chairman, 
Vice Chairman, Secretary or any member of the County Executive 
Committee as herein provided, said County Executive Committee 
shall have the authority to appoint his or her successor to fill the 
unexpired term.

shall be called by the respective Chairmen thereof, upon fifteen days' 
notice of the time and place for holding same, directed to the 
County Chairman residing within the respective Districts, and upon 
the failure for any reason of the aforesaid District Chairman in any 
case, to fail to call such Convention, the said call may be issued as

Education shall have power to divide the State into a convenient 
number of school districts; to regulate the grade, salary and qualifica- 
tions of teachers; to provide for the selection and adoption of the 
textbooks to be used in the public schools; to apportion and equalize 
the public school funds over the State; and generally to supervise 
and administer the free public school system of the State and make 
all needful rules and regulations in relation thereto. All the powers 
enumerated in this section shall be exercised in conformity with this 
Constitution and subject to such laws as may be enacted from time 
to time by the General Assembly."

behalf of the State in all criminal actions in the Superior Courts, and 
advise the officers of justice in his district. But the General Assembly 
may reduce or increase the number of solicitorial districts, which 
need not correspond to, or be the same as, the judicial districts of 
the State."

CENSUS 
1940 



1. Population of Counties in North Carolina. 

2. Population of Incorporated Cities and Towns in North Carolina. 



[245] 



POPULATION OF THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Sixteenth Census of the United States: 1940 

Between 1930 and 1940 North Carolina's urban places continued 
to grow faster than the rural areas, according to the final figures 
from the Sixteenth Decennial Census, issued by Director William 
Lane Austin, of the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. 

The final count of the Sixteenth Census showed that on April 1, 
1940, North Carolina had a population of 3,571,623, an increase of 
401,347 over the 3,170,276 residents reported in the 1930 Census. This 
change represents an increase of 12.7 per cent as compared with 23.9 
per cent between 1920 and 1930. The population increase in urban 
areas from 1930 to 1940 was 20.3 per cent as compared with 10.0 
per cent in the rural sections. Urban residents accounted for 27.3 
per cent of the State's population in 1940, as compared with 25.5 
per cent in 1930. In 1940, residents of urban areas numbered 974,175, 
while the rural population amounted to 2,597,448. The Census Bureau 
considers as urban areas the incorporated places of 2,500 or more. 
The remaining territory is classified as rural. 

There were 26 incorporated places of 10,000 or more in North 
Carolina, 5 (Burlington, Greenville, Hickory, Lexington, and Reids- 
ville) having reached this size since 1930. All but one (New Bern) 
of these cities increased between 1930 and 1940, Hickory having had 
the most rapid growth (83.2 per cent). 

Ninety-one of the 100 counties gained population between 1930 and 
1940. Alamance County, with an increase of 36.3 per cent, had the 
most extensive growth. 

The first census of North Carolina was taken in 1790, returning a 
population of 393,751. The population has shown an increase at 
every census since that time, but the rate of increase during the past 
decade was the lowest since that of 1860 to 1870. The population 
passed 1,000,000 between 1860 and 1870, 2,000,000 between 1900 and 
1910, and 3,000,000 between 1920 and 1930. The present population 
represents a density of 72.7 inhabitants per square mile. North 
Carolina's total land area is 49,142 square miles. 

Table 1 presents the figures for counties and for incorporated 
places of 10,000 or more, and Table 2 for incorporated places of 
less than 10,000.

THE CAPITOL AT WASHINGTON 

The Capitol building in Washington, D. C, is situated on a plateau 
88 feet above the level of the Potomac River and covers an area of 
153,112 square feet, or approximately three and one-half acres. Its 
length, from north to south, is 751 feet, four inches; its width, 
including approaches, is 350 feet; and its location is described as 
being in latitude 380°53'20.4" N. and longitude 770°00'35.7" W. from 
Greenwich. Its height above the base line on the east front to the top 
of the Statue of Freedom is 287 feet, five and one-half inches. The 
dome is built of iron, and the aggregate weight of material used in its 
construction is 8,909,200 pounds. 

The Statute of Freedom surmounting the dome is of bronze and 
weighs 14,985 pounds. It was modeled by Thomas Crawford, father of 
Francis Marion Crawford, the novelist, in Rome, and the plaster 
model shipped to this country. It was cast in bronze at the shops 
of Clark Mills, on the Bladensburg Road, near Washington. The 
cost of the casting and the expenses in connection were $20,796.82, 
and the sculptor was paid $3,000 for the plaster model. It was erected 
and placed in its present position December 2, 1863. 

The grounds have had an area of 58.8 acres, at one time a part of 
Cern Abby Manor, and at an early date were occupied by a subtribe 
of the Algonquin Indians known as the Powhatans, whose council 
house was then located at the foot of the hill. By subsequent purchase 
of ground at the north of the Capitol and at the west of the new 
House Office building the area of the grounds has been increased to 
139% acres. 

The Rotunda is 97 feet 6 inches in diameter, and its height from 
the floor to the top of the canopy is 180 feet, 3 inches. 

The Senate Chamber is 113 feet, 3 inches, in length by 80 feet, 
3 inches, in width and 36 feet in height. The galleries will accommo- 
date 682 persons. 

The Representatives' Hall is 139 feet in length by 93 feet in 
width and 36 feet in height. 

The room, until 1935 the meeting place of the Supreme Court, was, 
until 1859, occupied as the Senate Chamber. Previous to that time 
the court occupied the room immediately beneath, now used as a law 
library. 

[ 285 ] 



286 The National Capital 

The Capitol has a floor area of 14 acres, and 430 rooms are devoted 
to office, committee, and storage purposes. There are 14,518 square 
feet of skylights, 679 windows, and 550 doorways. 

The dome receives light through 108 windows, and from the archi- 
tect's office to the dome there are 365 steps, one for each day of the 
year. 

The southeast cornerstone of the original building was laid Sep- 
tember 18, 1793, by President Washington, with Masonic ceremonies. 
It is constructed of sandstone from quarries on Aquia Creek, Va. 
The original designs were prepared by Dr. William Thornton, and 
the work was done under the direction of Stephen H. Hallet, James 
Hoban, George Hadfield, and B. H. Latrobe, architects. 

The north wing was finished in 1800 and the south wing in 1811. A 
wooden passageway connected them. On August 24, 1814, the interior 
of both wings was destroyed by fire, set by the British. The damage to 
the building was immediately repaired. 

In 1818 the central portion of the building was commenced, under 
the architectural superintendence of Charles Bullfinch. The original 
building was finally completed in 1827. Its cost, including the grad- 
ing of the grounds, alterations, and repairs, up to 1827, was 
$2,433,844.13. 

The cornerstone of the extensions was laid on the Fourth of July, 
1851, by President Fillmore, Daniel Webster officiating as orator. 
This work was prosecuted under the architectural direction of 
Thomas U. Walter till 1865, when he resigned, and it was completed 
under the supervision of Edward Clark. The material used in the 
walls is white marble from the quarries at Lee, Massachusetts, and 
that in the columns from the quarries at Cockeysville, Maryland. 
The House extension was first occupied for legislative purpose Decem- 
ber 16, 1857, and the Senate January 4, 1859. 

The House office building was begun in 1905 and occupied on 
January 10, 1908; later, a story on top was added. The Senate office 
building was started in 1906 and occupied on March 5, 1909. The 
House building cost, with site, $4,860,155; the Senate structure,

THE AMERICAN FLAG, ITS ORIGIN 

In 1775 the Philadelphia Troop of Light Horse carried a standard 
with thirteen alternate blue and silver stripes in the upper left-hand 
corner. At Cambridge on January 2, 1776, Washington without au- 
thorization of the Continental Congress, raised a flag consisting of 
thirteen alternate white and red stripes with the crosses of St. 
George and St. Andrew in a blue field in the upper left-hand corner. 
It was called the "Union Flag," "Grand Union Flag" and the "Con- 
tinental Flag," and was employed until displaced by the Stars and 
Stripes adopted by the Continental Congress. 

The beautiful tradition that Betsy Ross, as early as June 1776, made 
a Stars and Stripes flag from a pencil sketch supplied by Washington 
but changed the points of the stars from six to five, has become a 
classic. Historians doubt its accuracy. Half a dozen localities claim 
to have been the place where the Stars and Stripes was first used. 
Within New York State such contention has been for Fort Ann on 
July 8. Fort Stanwix on August 3. Bennington on August 13, and 
Saratoga on September 19, 1777. The flag with thirteen stripes and 
thirteen stars, authorized on June 14, 1777, continued to be used as 
the national emblem until Congress passed the following act, which 
President Washington signed: 

"That from and after May 1, 1795, the flag of the United 
States be fifteen stripes, alternate red and white; and that the 
union be fifteen stars, white in a blue field." 

This action was necessitated by the admission of the States of Ver- 
mont and Kentucky to the Union. 

The flag of 1795 had the stars arranged in three rows of five each 
instead of in a circle, and served for 23 years. 

With the admission of more new states, however, it became 
apparent that the 1795 flag would have to be further modified; hence 
in 1818 a law was passed by Congress providing: 

"That from and after the fourth day of July next, the flag of 
the United States be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red 
and white; that the union have twenty stars, white In a blue 
field. 

[288 ] 



The American Flag 289 

"That on the admission of every new state into the Union, 
one star be added to the union of the flag; and that such 
addition shall take effect on the Fourth of July next suc- 
ceeding such admission." 

Since 1818 additional stars have been added until today there are 
48 on the flag. No law has been passed to designate how the stars 
shall be arranged. At one time they formed a design of a larger star. 
Now by common practice they form six rows of eight stars each. 

Betsy Ross, it is now said, lived at 233 Arch Street, Philadelphia, 
and not at 239. She made flags, but says Theodore D. Gottlieb, she 
never made the first Stars and Stripes. He adds: "The Department 
of State, the War and Navy departments, the Historical Sites Com- 
mission of Philadelphia and other official bodies repudiate the legend. 
The book and pamphlet material available is overwhelmingly against 
the legend. 

"The story arose for the first time on March 14, 1870, when William 
J. Canby read a paper before the Pennsylvania Historical Society in 
which he states that in 1836, when his grandmother, Betsy Ross, 
was 84 years old and he was 11, she told him the story. He apparently 
thought little of it because nothing was done until 1857, when at the 
suggestion of his Aunt Clarissa, oldest daughter of Betsy, he wrote 
out the notes as he remembered the conversation. 

"Nothing further was done until 1870 when he wrote his paper. 
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania thought so little of the paper 
it neither catalogued nor kept a copy of it. Even George Canby, 
younger brother of William, disputed several points in the paper. 

"The legend grew to strength from 1888 to 1893 when promoters 
secured an option on the so-called Flag House. 

"Modern historical researchers are giving much thought to Francis 
Hopkinson of New Jersey as the possible designer and the Fillmore or 
Bennington flag as the first flag." 

The Proper Display of the American Flag 

Sec. 2. (a) It is the universal custom to display the flag only from 
sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the 
open. However, the flag may be displayed at night upon special occa- 
sions when it is desired to produce a patriotic effect. 

19 



290 The American Flag 

(b) The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously. 

(c) The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is 
inclement. 

(d) The flag should be displayed on all days when the weather 
permits, especially on New Year's Day, January 1; Inauguration Day, 
January 20; Lincoln's Birthday, February 12; Washington's Birth- 
day, February 22; Army Day, April 6; Easter Sunday (variable); 
Mother's Day, second Sunday in May; Memorial Day (half staff until 
noon), May 30; Flag Day, June 14; Independence Day, July 4; Labor 
Day, first Monday in September; Constitution Day, September 17; 
Columbus Day, October 12; Navy Day, October 27; Armistice Day, 
November 11; Thanksgiving Day, last Thursday in November; Christ- 
mas Day, December 25; such other days as may be proclaimed by the 
President of the United States; the birthdays of States (dates of 
admission); and on State holidays. 

(e) The flag should be displayed daily, weather permitting, on or 
near the main administration building of every public institution. 

(f) The flag should be displayed in or near every polling place on 
election days. 

(g) The flag should be displayed during school days in or near 
every schoolhouse. 

Sec. 3. That the flag, when carried in a procession with another 
flag or flags, should be either on the marching right; that is, the flag's 
own right, or, if there is a line of other flags, in front of the center 
of that line. 

(a) The flag should not be displayed on a float in a parade except 
from a staff, or as provided in subsection (i). 

(b) The flag should not be draped over the hood, top, sides, or 
back of a vehicle or of a railroad train or a boat. When the flag 
is displayed on a motorcar, the staff shall be fixed firmly to the 
chassis or clamped to the radiator cap. 

(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the 
same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, 
except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, 
when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church 
services for the personnel of the Navy. 

(d) The flag of the United States of America, when it is displayed 
with another flag against a wall from crossed staffs, should be on the 
right, the flag's own right, and its staff should be in front of the 
staff of the other flag. 



The American Flag 291 

(e) The flag of the United States of America should he at the 
center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags 
of States or localities or pennants of societies are grouped and dis- 
played from staffs. 

(f) When flags of States, cities, or localities, or pennants of soci- 
eties are flown on the same halyard with the flag of the United 
States, the latter should always be at the peak. When the flags 
are flown from adjacent staffs, the flag of the United States should 
be hoisted first and lowered last. No such flag or pennant may 
be placed above the flag of the United States or to the right of the 
flag of the United States. 

(g) When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to 
be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should 
be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the 
display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in 
time of peace. 

(h) When the flag of the United States is displayed from a staff 
projecting horizontally or at an agle from the window sill, balcony, 
or front of a building, the union of the flag should be placed at the 
peak of the staff unless the flag is at half staff. When the flag is 
suspended over a sidewalk from a rope extending from a house to 
a pole at the edge of the sidewalk, the flag should be hoisted out, 
union first, from the building. 

(i) When the flag is displayed otherwise than by being flown 
from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out. 
When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, 
the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right; that is, 
to the observer's left. When displayed in a window, the flag should 
be displayed in the same way; that is, with the union or blue field 
to the left of the observer in the street. 

(j) When the flag is displayed over the middle of the street, it 
should be suspended vertically with the union to the north in an 
east and west street or to the east in the north and south street. 

(k) When used on a speaker's platform, the flag, if displayed 
flat, should he displayed above and behind the speaker. When dis- 
played from a staff in a church or public auditorium, if it is displayed 
in the chancel of a church, or on the speaker's platform in a public 
auditorium, the flag should occupy the position of honor and be placed 
at the clergyman's or speaker's right as he faces the congregation or 
audience. Any other flag so displayed in the chancel or on the plat- 



292 The American Flag 

form should be placed at the clergyman's or speaker's left as he 
faces the congregation or audience. But when the flag is displayed 
from a staff in a church or public auditorium elsewhere than in the 
chancel or on the platform it shall be placed in the position of honor 
at the right of the congregation or audience as they face the chancel 
or platform. Any other flag so displayed should be placed on the left 
of the congregation or audience as they face the chancel or platform. 

(1) The flag should form a distinctive feature of the ceremony of 
unveiling a statue or monument, but it should never be used as the 
covering for the statue or monument. 

(m) The flag, when flown at half staff, should be first hoisted to 
the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position. 
The flag should be again raised to the peak before it is lowered for 
the day. By "half staff" is meant hauling the flag to one-half the 
distance between the top and bottom of the staff. Crepe streamers 
may be affixed to spear heads or flagstaffs in a parade only by order 
of the President of the United States. 

(n) When the flag is used to cover a casket, it should be so placed 
that the union is at the head and over the left shoulder. The flag 
should not be lowered into the grave or allowed to touch the ground. 

Sec. 4. That no disrespect should be shown to the flag of the 
United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person 
or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institu- 
tional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor. 

(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down save 
as a signal of dire distress. 

(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the 
ground, the floor, water, or merchandise. 

(c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always 
aloft and free. 

(d) The flag should never be used as drapery of any sort whatso- 
ever, never festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed 
to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with 
the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should 
be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of a platform, 
and for decoration in general. 

(e) The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored 
in such a manner as will permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged 
in any way. 

(f) The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling. 



The American Flag 293 

(g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on part of it, 
nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, 
picture, or drawing of any nature. 

(h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, 
holding, carrying, or delivering anything. 

(i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any 
manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as 
cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise im- 
pressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for 
temporary use and discard; or used as any portion of a costume or 
athletic uniform. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff 
or halyard from which the flag is flown. 

(j) The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a 
fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, 
preferably by burning. 

Sec. 5. That during the ceremony of hoisting or lowering the flag 
or when the flag is passing in a parade or in a review, all persons 
present should face the flag, stand at attention, and salute. Those 
present in uniform should render the right-hand salute. "When not 
in uniform, men should remove the headdress with the right hand 
holding it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Men 
without hats merely stand at attention. Women should salute by 
placing the right hand over the heart. The salute to the flag in the 
moving column should be rendered at the moment the flag passes. 

Sec. 6. That when the national anthem is played and the flag is 
not displayed, all present should stand and face toward the music. 
Those in uniform should salute at the first note of the anthem, re- 
taining this position until the last note. All others stand at attention, 
men removing the headdress. When the flag is displayed, the salute 
to the flag should be given. 

Sec. 7. That the pledge of allegiance to the flag, "I pledge allegiance 
to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic 
for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice 
for all," be rendered by standing with the right hand over the heart; 
extending the right hand, palm upward, toward the flag at the words 
"to the flag" and holding this position until the end, when the hand 
drops to the side. However, civilians will always show full respect 
to the flag when the pledge is given by merely standing at attention, 



294 The American Flag 

men removing the headdress. Persons in uniform shall render the 
military salute. 

Sec. 8. Any rule or custom pertaining to the display of the flag of 
the United States of America, set forth herein, may be altered, modi- 
fied, or repealed, or additional rules with respect thereto may be 
prescribed, by the Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of 
the United States, whenever he deems it to be appropriate or desir- 
able; and any such alteration or additional rule shall be set forth in 
a proclamation. 

The Pledge to the Flag 

(Taught in many of the schools and repeated by pupils daily) 

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, 
And to the Republic for which it stands, 
One Nation, indivisible, 
With liberty and justice for all." 

The Pledge to the Flag, according to a report of the Historical Com- 
mittee of the United States Flag Association (May 18, 1939), was 
written by Francis Bellamy (August 1892), a member of the editorial 
staff of The Youth's Companion, in Boston, Massachusetts. It was 
first repeated at the exercises in connection with the celebration of 
Columbus Day (October 12, 1892, Old Style). The idea of this 
national celebration on Columbus Day was largely that of James B. 
Upham, one of the junior proprietors of The Youth's Companion. 

Francis Hopkinson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, 
was the designer of the Stars and Stripes — not Betsy Ross of Phila- 
delphia, who made flags. He also designed the first Great Seal of the 
United States, and a number of coins and several items of paper 
currency in the early days of the Republic. 

Hopkinson, born in Philadelphia (September 21, 1737), and a 
graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, was the first native 
American composer of a secular song, "My Days Have Been So 
Wondrous Free." He was a lawyer and later a judge in New Jersey, 
and then in Pennsylvania. He died in Philadelphia (May 9, 1791). 
His portrait, painted by himself, hangs in the rooms of the Pennsyl- 
vania Historical Society, Philadelphia. He played the organ and the 
harpsichord. 



THE AMERICAN'S CREED 

I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the 
people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived 
from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sov- 
ereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and 
inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, 
justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their 
lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country 
to love it, to support its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its 
flag, and to defend it against all enemies. 

(The America's Creed by William Tyler Page was adopted by 
an act of Congress, April 6, 191S.) 

THE HALIFAX RESOLUTION 

Adopted by the Provincial Congress of North Carolina in Session 
at Halifax, April 12, 1776 

It appears to your committee that pursuant to the plan concerted 
by the British Ministry for subjugating America, the King and 
Parliament of Great Britain have usurped a power over the persons 
and properties of the people unlimited and uncontrolled; and disre- 
garding their humble petitions for peace, liberty and safety, have 
made divers legislative acts, denouncing war, famine, and every 
species of calamity, against the Continent in general. The British 
fleets and armies have been, and still are, daily employed in destroy- 
ing the people, and committing the most horrid devastations on the 
country. The Governors in different Colonies have declared protection 
to slaves who should imbrue their hands in the blood of their mas- 
ters. That ships belonging to America are declared prizes of war, 
and many of them have been violently seized and confiscated. In con- 
sequence of all of which multitudes of the people have been destroyed, 
or from easy circumstances reduced to the most lamentable distress. 

And Whereas, The moderation hitherto manifested by the United 
Colonies and their sincere desire to be reconciled to the mother 
country on constitutional principles, have procured no mitigation of 
the aforesaid wrongs and usurpations, and no hopes remain of obtain- 
ing redress by those means alone which have been hitherto tried, 

[295 ] 



296 Halifax Resolution 

your committee are of opinion that the House should enter into the 
following resolve, to wit: 

Resolved, That the delegates for this Colony in the Continental 
Congress be empowered to concur with the delegates of the other 
Colonies in declaring Independency, and forming foreign alliances, 
reserving to this Colony the sole and exclusive right of forming a 
Constitution and laws for this Colony, and of appointing delegates 
from time to time (under the direction of a general representation 
thereof), to meet the delegates of the other Colonies for such pur- 
poses as shall be hereafter pointed out.

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 

(Unanimously Adopted in Congress, July 4, 1776, at Philadelphia) 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one 
people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with 
another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate 
and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God 
entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires 
that they should declare the causes which impel them to the sep- 
aration. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created 
equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable 
Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Hap- 
piness. That, to secure these rights, Governments are instituted 
among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the gov- 
erned; That, whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive 
of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, 



Declaration of Independence 299 

and to institute new Government, laying its foundations on such prin- 
ciples, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem 
most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, 
will dictate that Governments long established should not be 
changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all expe- 
rience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while 
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms 
to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and 
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design 
to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their 
duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for 
their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these 
Colonies, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to 
alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present 
King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpa- 
tions, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute 
Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to 
a candid world. 

He has refused his assent to Laws, the most wholesome and neces- 
sary for the public good. 

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and 
pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his 
Assent should be obtained ; and, when so suspended, he has utterly 
neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of 
large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the 
right of Representation in the Legislature — a right inestimable to 
them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, un- 
comfortable and distant from the depository of their public Records, 
for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his 
measures. 

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing 
with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause 
others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of An- 
nihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; 
the State remaining, in the meantime, exposed to all the dangers of 
invasion from without, and convulsions within. 



300 Declaration of Independence 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States for 
that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; 
refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and rais- 
ing the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. 

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his 
Assent to laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. 

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure 
of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms 
of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without 
the Consent of our Legislature. 

He has affected to render the Military independent of, and superior 
to, the Civil power. 

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign 
to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his 
Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any 
Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: 

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: 

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by jury: 

For transporting us beyond Seas, to be tried for pretended offenses: 

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring 
Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarg- 
ing its Boundaries, so as to render it at once an example and fit 
instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: 

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, 
and altering, fundamentally, the Forms of our Governments: 

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves 
invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his 
Protection and waging War against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, 
and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries 
to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun 
with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the 



Declaration of Independence 301 

most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized 
nation. 

He has constrained our fellow-Citizens, taken captive on the high 
Seas, to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners 
of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has en- 
deavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless 
Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished 
destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress 
in the most humble terms; Our repeated Petitions have been answered 
only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked 
by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a 
free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attentions to our Britain brethren. 
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legisla- 
ture to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have re- 
minded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement 
here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and 
we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow 
these usurpations, which inevitably interrupt our connections and 
correspondence. They, too, have been deaf to the voice of justice 
and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, 
which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest 
of mankind — Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. 

We, Therefore, the Representatives of the United States of Amer- 
ica, in General Congress Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge 
of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name and

diction of the crime.

may be due.

Amendments to the Constitution of the United States 

The following amendments to the Constitution, Article I to X, 
inclusive, were proposed at the First Session of the First Congress, 
begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday, March 4, 
1789, and were adopted by the necessary number of States. The 
original proposal of the ten amendments was preceded by this 
preamble and resolution: 

"The conventions of a number of the States having, at the time of 
their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to pre- 
vent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory 
and restrictive clauses should be added, and as extending the ground 
of public confidence in the Government will best insure the beneficent 
ends of its institution: 

"RESOLVED, By the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America, in Congress assembled, two-thirds of both 
Houses concurring, that the following articles be proposed to the 
Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution 
of the United States; all or any of which articles, when ratified by 
three-fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and 
purposes, as part of the said Constitution, namely:"

THE STATE CAPITOL 

The original State Capitol of North Carolina was destroyed by fire 
on June 21, 1831. 

At the session of November, 1832, the Assembly resolved to rebuild 
on the old site, and $50,000 was appropriated for the purpose. Com- 
missioners were appointed to have the work done. The rubbish was 
cleared away, the excavations made and the foundations were laid. 
On July 4, 1833, the cornerstone was set in place. 

After the foundations were laid the work progressed more slowly, 
and it was so expensive that the appropriation was exhausted. The 
Legislature at its next session appropriated $75,000 more. To do the 
stone and finer work many skilled artisans had been brought from 
Scotland and other countries. The Building Commissioners con- 
tracted with David Paton to come to Raleigh and superintend the 
work. Mr. Paton was an architect who had come from Scotland the 
year before. He was the builder, the architect, the designer. 

The Legislature was compelled to make appropriations for the 
work from time to time. The following is a table of the several 
appropriations made: 

Session of 1832-33 $ 50,000.00 

Session of 1833-34 * 75,000.00 

Session of 1834-35 75,000.00 

Session of 1835 - 75,000.00 

Session of 1836-37 120,000.00 

Session of 1838-39 105,300.00 

Session of 1840-41 31,374.46 

Total $531,674.46 

The stone with which the building was erected was the property 
of the State. Had the State been compelled to purchase this material 
the cost of the Capitol would have been considerably increased. 

In the summer of 1840 the work was finished. At last, after more 
than seven years, the sum of $531,674.46 was expended. As large as 
that sum was for the time, when the State was so poor and when the 
entire taxes for all State purposes reached less than $100,000, yet the 

[ 324 ] 



The State Capitol 325 

people were satisfied. The building had been erected with rigorous 
economy, and it was an object of great pride to the people. Indeed, 
never was money better expended than in the erection of this noble 
Capitol. 

Description of the Capitol, Written by David Paton, 

the Architect 

"The State Capitol is 160 feet in length from north to south by 
140 feet from east to west. The whole height is 97 y 2 feet in the center. 
The apex of pediment is 64 feet in height. The stylobate is IS feet 
in height. The columns of the east and west porticoes are 5 feet 2y 2 
inches in diameter. An entablature, including blocking course, is 
continued around the building, 12 feet high. 

"The columns and entablature are Grecian Doric, and copied from 
the Temple of Minerva, commonly called the Parthenon, which was 
erected in Athens about 500 years before Christ. An octagon tower 
surrounds the rotunda, which is ornamented with Grecian cornices, 
etc., and its dome is decorated at top with a similar ornament to that 
of the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates, commonly called the 
Lanthorn of Demosthenes. 

"The interior of the Capitol is divided into three stories: First, the 
lower story, consisting of ten rooms, eight of which are appropriated 
as offices to the Governor, Secretary, Treasurer, and Comptroller, 
each having two rooms of the same size — the one containing an area 
of 649 square feet, the other 528 square feet — the two committee 
rooms, each containing 200 square feet, and four closets; also the 
rotunda, corridors, vestibules, and piazzas, contain an area of 4,370 
square feet. The vestibules are decorated with columns and antae, 
similar to those of the Ionic Temple on the Ilissus, near the Acropolis 
of Athens. The remainder is groined with stone and brick, springing 
from columns and pilasters of the Roman Doric. 

"The second story consists of Senatorial and Representatives' 
chambers, the former containing an area of 2,545 and the latter 2,849 
square feet. Four apartments enter from Senate Chamber, two of 
which contain each an area of 169 square feet, and the other two 
contain each an area of 154 square feet; also, two rooms enter from 
Representatives' chamber, each containing an area of 170 square feet; 
of two committee rooms, each containing an area of 231 feet; of four 



326 The State Capitol 

presses and the passages, stairs, lobbies, and colonnades, containing 
an area of 3,204 square feet. 

"The lobbies and Hall of Representatives have their columns and 
antae of the Octagon Tower of Andronicus Cyrrhestes and the plan 
of the hall is of the formation of the Greek theatre and the columns 
and antae in the Senatorial chamber and rotunda are of the Temple 
of Erectheus, Minerva Polias, and Pandrosus, in the Acropolis of 
Athens, near the above named Parthenon. 

"Third, or attic story, consists of rooms appropriated to the 
Supreme Court and Library, each containing an area of 693 square 
feet. Galleries of both houses have an area of 1,300 square feet; also 
two apartments entering from Senate gallery, each 169 square feet, 
of four presses and the lobbies' stairs, 988 square feet. These lobbies 
as well as rotunda, are lit with cupolas, and it is proposed to finish 
the court and library in the florid Gothic style." 



THE STATE FLAG 
An Act to Establish a State Flag 

The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact: 

Section 1. That the flag of North Carolina shall consist of a blue 
union, containing in the center thereof a white star with the letter 
N in gilt on the left and the letter C in gilt on the right of said star, 
the circle containing the same to be one-third the width of the union. 

Sec. 2. That the fly of the flag shall consist of two equally pro- 
portioned bars; the upper bar to be red, the lower bar to be white; 
that the length of the bars horizontally shall be equal to the per- 
pendicular length of the union, and the total length of the flag shall 
be one-third more than its width. 

Sec. 3. That above the star in the center of the union there shall 
be a gilt scroll in semicircular form, containing in black letters this 
inscription: "May 20th, 1775," and that below the star there shall be 
a similar scroll containing in black letters the inscription: "April 
12th, 1776." 

In the General Assembly read three times and ratified this 9th day 
of March, A.D. 1885. 

No change has been made in the flag since the passage of this act. 
By an act of 1907 it is provided: 

"That the board of trustees or managers of the several State insti- 
tutions and public buildings shall provide a North Carolina flag, of 
such dimensions and material as they may deem best, and the same 
shall be displayed from a staff upon the top of each and every such 
building at all times except during inclement weather, and upon the 
death of any State officer or any prominent citizen the flag shall be 
put at half-mast until the burial of such person shall have taken 
place. 

"That the Board of County Commissioners of the several counties 
in this State shall likewise authorize the procuring of a North Caro- 
lina flag, to be displayed either on a staff upon the top, or draped 
behind the Judge's stand, in each and every courthouse in the State, 
and that the State flag shall be displayed at each and every term of 
court held, and on such other public occasions as the Commissioners 
may deem proper." (Rev., s. 5321; 1885, c. 291; 1907, c. 838.) 

[327] 



THE GREAT SEAL 

The Constitution of North Carolina, Article III, section 16, requires 
that 

"There shall be a seal of the State which shall be kept by the 
Governor, and used by him as occasion may require, and shall be 
called 'The Great Seal of the State of North Carolina.' All grants 
and commissions shall be issued in the name and by the authority 
of the State of North Carolina, sealed with 'The Great Seal of the 
State,' signed by the Governor and countersigned by the Secretary 
of State." 

The use of a Great Seal for the attestation of important documents 
began with the institution of government in North Carolina. There 
have been at various times nine different seals in use in the colony 
and State. 

The present Great Seal of the State of North Carolina is described 
as follows: 

"The Great Seal of the State of North Carolina is two and one- 
quarter inches in diameter, and its design is a representation of the 
figures of Liberty and Plenty, looking toward each other, but not 
more than half fronting each other, and otherwise disposed as 
follows: Liberty, the first figure, standing, her pole with cap on it in 
her left hand and a scroll with the word 'Constitution' inscribed 
thereon in her right hand. Plenty, the second figure, sitting down, 
her right arm half extended toward Liberty, three heads of wheat in 
her right hand, and in her left the small end of her horn, the mouth 
of which is resting at her feet, and the contents of horn rolling out. 
In the exergon is inserted the words May 20, 1775, above the coat of 
arms. Around the circumference is the legend 'The Great Seal of the 
State of North Carolina' and the motto 'Esse Quam Videri'," (Rev., 
s. 5339; Code, ss. 3328, 3329; 1868-9, c. 270, s. 35; 1883, c. 392; 1893, 
c. 145.)

tinuance of those blessings to us and our posterity, do, for the more 
certain security thereof and for the better government of this State, 
ordain and establish this Constitution. 

ARTICLE I 

DECLABATION OF EIGHTS 

That the great, general, and essential principles of liberty and free 
government may be recognized and established, and that the relations 
of this State to the Union and Government of the United States, and 
those of the people of this State to the rest of the American people, 
may be denned and affirmed, we do declare: 

Section 1. The equality and rights of men. That we hold it to be 
self-evident that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by 
their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are 
life, liberty, the enjoyment of the fruits of their own labor, and the 
pursuit of happiness. 

Sec. 2. Political power and government. That all political power is 
vested in, and derived from, the people; all government of right 
originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is 
instituted solely for the good of the whole. 

Sec. 3. Internal government of the State. That the people of this 
State have the inherent, sole and exclusive right of regulating the 
internal government and policies thereof, and of altering and abolish- 
ing their Constitution and form of government whenever it may be 
necessary for their safety and happiness; but every such right should 
be exercised in pursuance of the law, and consistently with the Con- 
stitution of the United States. 

[ 329 ] 



330 Constitution of North Carolina 

Sec. 4. That there is no right to secede. That this State shall ever 
remain a member of the American Union; that the people thereof are 
a part of the American Nation; that there is no right on the part of 
the State to secede, and that all attempts, from whatever source or 
upon whatever pretext, to dissolve said Union or to sever said Nation, 
ought to be resisted with the whole power of the State. 

Sec. 5. Of allegiance to the United States Government. That every 
citizen of this State owes paramount allegiance to the Constitution 
and Government of the United States, and that no law or ordinance 
of the State in contravention or subversion thereof can have any- 
binding force. 

Sec. 6. Public debt; bonds issued under ordinance of Convention of 
1S68, '6S-'69, '69-'70, declared invalid; exception. The State shall 
never assume or pay, or authorize the collection of any debt or obliga- 
tion, express or implied, incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion 
against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation 
of any slave; nor shall the General Assembly assume or pay, or 
authorize the collection of any tax to pay, either directly or indirectly, 
expressed or implied, any debt or bond incurred, or issued, by author- 
ity of the Convention of the year one thousand eight hundred and 
sixty-eight, nor any debt or bond incurred or issued by the Legisla- 
ture of the year one thousand eight hundred and sixty-eight, either 
at its special session of the year one thousand eight hundred and 
sixty-eight, or at its regular sessions of the years one thousand eight 
hundred and sixty-eight and one thousand eight hundred and sixty- 
nine, and one thousand eight hundred and sixty-nine and one thou- 
sand eight hundred and seventy, except the bonds issued to fund the 
interest on the old debt of the State, unless the proposing to pay the 
same shall have first been submitted to the people, and by them 
ratified by the vote of a majority of all the qualified voters of the 
State at a regular election held for that purpose. 

Sec. 7. Exclusive emoluments, etc. No man or set of men are 
entitled to exclusive or separate emoluments or privileges from the 
community but in consideration of public services. 

Sec. 8. The legislative, executive, and judicial powers distinct. The 
legislative, executive, and supreme judicial powers of the government 
ought to be forever separate and distinct from each other. 

Sec. 9. Of the power of suspending laws. All power of suspending 
laws, or the execution of laws, by any authority, without the consent 



Constitution of North Carolina 331 

of the representatives of the people, is injurious to their rights, and 
ought not to be exercised. 

Sec. 10. Election free. All elections ought to be free. 

Sec. 11. In criminal prosecutions. In all criminal prosecutions 
every man has the right to be informed of the accusation against 
him, and to confront the accusers and witnesses with other testimony, 
and to have counsel for his defense, and not be compelled to give 
evidence against himself, or to pay costs, jail fees, or necessary 
witness fees of the defense, unless found guilty. 

Sec. 12. Answers to criminal charges. No person shall be put to 
answer any criminal charge except as hereinafter allowed, but by 
indictment, presentment, or impeachment. 

Sec. 13. Right of jury. No person shall be convicted of any crime 
but by the unanimous verdict of a jury of good and lawful men in 
open court. The Legislature may, however, provide other means of 
trial for petty misdemeanors, with the right of appeal. 

Sec. 14. Excessive hail. Excessive bail should not be required, 
nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel or unusual punishment 
inflicted. 

Sec. 15. General ivarrants. General warrants, whereby any officer 
or messenger may be commanded to search suspected places, without 
evidence of the act committed, or to seize any person or persons not 
named, whose offense is not particularly described and supported by 
evidence, are dangerous to liberty, and ought not to be granted. 

Sec. 16. Imprisonment for debt. There shall be no imprisonment 
for debt in this State, except in cases of fraud. 

Sec. 17. No person taken, etc., but by law of the land. No person

or privileges, or outlawed or exiled, or in any manner deprived of his 
life, liberty, or property but by the law of the land. 

Sec. 18. Persons restrained of liberty. Every person restrained of 
his liberty is entitled to a remedy to inquire into the lawfulness 
thereof, and to remove the same, if unlawful; and such remedy ought 
not to be denied or delayed. 

Sec. 19. Controversies at laic respecting property. In all con- 
troversies at law respecting property, the ancient mode of trial by 
jury is one of the best securities of the rights of the people, and ought 
to remain sacred and inviolable. 



332 Constitution of North Carolina 

Sec. 20. Freedom of the press. The freedom of the press is one of 
the great bulwarks of liberty, and therefore ought never to be 
restrained, but every individual shall be held responsible for the 
abuse of the same. 

Sec. 21. Habeas corpus. The privileges of the writ of habeas 
corpus shall not be suspended. 

Sec. 22. Property qualification. As political rights and privileges 
are not dependent upon, or modified by, property, therefore no 
property qualification ought to affect the right to vote or hold office. 

Sec. 23. Representation and taxation. The people of the State 
ought not to be taxed, or made subject to the payment of any impost 
or duty without the consent of themselves, or their representatives in 
General Assembly, freely given. 

Sec. 24. Militia and the right to bear arms. A well regulated 
militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of 
the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; and, as stand- 
ing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not 
to be kept up, and the military should be kept under strict subordina- 
tion to, and governed by, the civil power. Northing herein contained 
shall justify the practice of carrying concealed weapons, or prevent 
the Legislature from enacting penal statutes against said practice. 

Sec. 25. Right of the people to assemble together. The people have 
a right to assemble together to consult for their common good, to 
instruct their respresentatives, and to apply to the Legislature for 
redress of grievances. But secret political socities are dangerous to 
the liberty of a free people, and should not be tolerated. 

Sec. 26. Religious liberty. All men have a natural and inalienable 
right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their 
own consciences, and no human authority should, in any case what- 
ever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience. 

Sec. 27. Education. The people have the right to the privilege of 
education, and it is the duty of the State to guard and maintain that 
right. 

Sec. 28. Elections should be frequent. For redress of grievances, 
and for amending and strengthening the laws, elections should be 
often held. 



Constitution of Xorth Carolina 333

rence to fundamental principles is absolutely necessary to preserve 
the blessings of liberty. 

Sec. 30. Hereditary emoluments, etc. No hereditary emoluments, 
privileges, or honors ought to be granted or conferred in this State. 

Sec. 31. Perpetuities, etc. Perpetuities and monopolies are con- 
trary to the genius of a free State, and ought not to be allowed. 

Sec. 32. Ex post facto laws. Retrospective laws, punishing acts 
committed before the existence of such laws, and by them only 
declared criminal, are oppressive, unjust, and incompatible with 
liberty; wherefore no ex post facto law ought to be made. No law 
taxing retrospectively sales, purchases, or other acts previously done, 
ought to be passed. 

Sec. 33. Slavery prohibited. Slavery and involuntary servitude, 
otherwise than for crime, whereof the parties shall have been duly 
convicted, shall be, and are hereby, forever prohibited within the 
State.

justice administered without sale, denial, or delay. 

Sec. 36. Soldiers in time of peace. No soldier shall, in time of 
peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner; 
nor in time of war but in a manner prescribed by law.

NAME OF STATE AND NICKNAMES 

In 1629 King Charles the First of England "erected into a 
province," all the land from Albemarle Sound on the north to the 
St. John's River on the south, which he directed should be called 
Carolina. The word Carolina is from the word Carolus, the Latin 
form of Charles. 

When Carolina was divided in 1710, the southern part was called 
South Carolina and the northern or older settlement was called 
North Carolina, or the "Old North State." Historians had recorded the 
fact that the principal products of this State were "tar, pitch and 
turpentine." It was during one of the fiercest battles of the War 
Between the States, so the story goes, that the column supporting the 
North Carolina troops was driven from the field. After the battle 
the North Carolinians, who had successfully fought it out alone, 
were greeted from the passing derelict regiment with the question: 
'Any more tar down in the Old North State, boys?" Quick as a flash 
came the answer: "No; not a bit; old Jeff's bought it all up." "Is that 
so; what is he going to do with it?" was asked. "He is going to put 
it on you'ns heels to make you stick better in the next fight." Creecy 
relates that General Lee, hearing of the incident, said: "God bless the 
Tar Heel boys," and from that they took the name.— Adapted from 
Grandfather Tales of North Carolina by R. B. Creecy and Histories 
of North Carolina Regiments, Vol. Ill, by Walter Clark. 

The State Motto 

The General Assembly of 1893 (chapter 145) adopted the words 
"Esse Quam Videri" as the State's motto and directed that these 
words with the date "20 May, 1775," should be placed with our Coat 
of Arms upon the Great Seal of the State. 

The words "Esse Quam Videri" mean "to be rather than to seem." 
Nearly every State has adopted a motto, generally in Latin. The 
reason for their mottoes being in Latin is that the Latin tongue is 
far more condensed and terse than the English. The three words, 
"Esse Quam Videri," require at least six English words to express 
the same idea. 

[365] 



366 The State Song 

Curiosity has been aroused to learu the origin of our State motto. 
It is found in Cicero in his essay on Friendship (Cicero de Amicitia, 
chap. 26). 

It is a little singular that until the act of 1893 the sovereign State 
of North Carolina had no motto since its declaration of independence. 
It was one of the very few States which did not have a motto and the 
only one of the original thirteen without one. (Rev., s. 5320; 1893, 
c. 145.) 

The State Song 

The song known as "The Old North State," as hereinafter written, 
adopted and declared to be the official song of the State of North 
Carolina, said song being in words as follows: 

"Carolina! Carolina! Heaven's blessings attend her! 

While we live we will cherish, protect and defend her; 
Though the scorner may sneer at and witlings defame her, 

Our hearts swell with gladness whenever we name her. 

CHORUS 

Hurrah! Hurrah! The Old North State forever! 
Hurrah! Hurrah! The good Old North State! 

Though she envies not others their merited glory, 

Say, whose name stands the foremost in Liberty's story 

Though too true to herself e'er to crouch to oppression, 
Who can yield to just rule more loyal submission? 

Plain and artless her sons, but whose doors open faster 
At the knock of a stranger, or the tale of disaster? 

How like to the rudeness of their dear native mountains, 
With rich ore in their bosoms and life in their fountains. 

And her daughters, the Queen of the Forest resembling — 
So graceful, so constant, yet to gentlest breath trembling; 

And true lightwood at heart, let the match be applied them, 

How they kindle and flame! Oh! none know but who've tried them. 

Then let all who love us, love the land that we live in 

(As happy a region as on this side of Heaven), 
Where Plenty and Freedom, Love and Peace smile before us, 

Raise aloud, raise together, the heart-thrilling chorus!" 

(1927, c. 26, s. 1.) 



State Flower 367 

The State Flower 

The General Assembly of 1941 designated the dogwood as the State 
flower. (Public Laws, 1941, c. 289) 

The State Bird 

The Carolina Chickadee was designated by popular vote in 1931 
under sponsorship of State Women's Clubs. The General Assembly 
on May 8, 1933, officially designated it as the State bird, but repealed 
its action seven days later. 

At the time this publication went to press a bill was pending in 
the 1943 General Assembly to designate the Cardinal as the State 
bird. 

The State Colors 

There are no officially designated colors. Many generally accept 
the colors of the University of North Carolina— BLUE AND WHITE. 

The State's Most Famous Toast 

(Not Officially Designated) 

"Here's to the land of the long leaf pine 
The summer land where the sun doth shine; 
Where the weak grow strong 
And the strong grow great, 
Here's to 'down home' 
The Old North State." 

(Composed in 1904 by Mrs. Harry C. Martin, former resident of 

Raleigh, N. C, out tww living in Tennessee.)
