PART I 
HISTORICAL 



THE STATE 

North Carolina, often called the "Tar Heel" state, was the scene 
of the first attempt to colonize America by English-speaking peo- 
ple. Under a charter granted to Sir Walter Raleigh by Queen 
Elizabeth, a colony was begun in the 1580's on Roanoke Island. 
This settlement, however, was unsuccessful and later became known 
as "The Lost Colony." 

The first permanent settlement was made about 1650 by immi- 
grants from Virginia. In 1663 Charles II granted to eight Lords 
Proprietors a charter for the territory lying "within six and 
thirty degrees of the northern latitude, and to the west as far as 
the south seas, and so southerly as far as the River St. Mattias. 
which bordereth upon the coast of Florida, and within one and 
thirty degrees of northern latitude, and so west in a direct line as 
far as the south seas aforesaid; ..." and the colony was called 
Carolina. In 1665 another charter was granted to these noblemen. 
This charter extended the limits of Carolina so that the northern 
line was 36 degrees and 30 minutes north latitude, and the southern 
line was 29 degrees north latitude, and both of these lines extended 
westward to the South Seas. 

In 1669 John Locke wrote the Fundamental Constitutions as a 
model for the government of Carolina. The Lords Proprietors 
adopted these constitutions and directed the governor to put into 
operation as much of them as was feasible. In 1670 there were 
four precincts (changed to counties in 1739); Pasquotank, Per- 
quimans, Chowan, and Currituck. North Carolina now has one 
hundred counties. 

Carolina on December 7, 1710, was divided into North Carolina 
and South Carolina, and Edward Hyde, on May 12, 1712. became 
the first governor of North Carolina. 

In 1729 seven of the eight Lords Proprietors sold their interest 
in Carolina to the Crown and North Carolina became a royal 
colony. George Burrington was the first royal governor. Richard 
Everard, the last proprietary governor, served until Burrington 
was appointed. 

North Carolina, on April 12, 1776, authorized her delegates in 
the Continental Congress to vote for independence, and on Decem- 
ber 18, 1776, adopted a constitution. Richard Caswell became the 
first governor under this constitution. On November 21, 1789. the 



4 Noitrii Cai!(iii.\a Manitai. 

s^tale aduplt'd the United States Constitution, being tlie twelfth 
state to enter the Federal Union. North Carolina, in 1788, had 
rejected the Constitution on the grounds that certain amendments 
were vital and necessary to a free people. 

A Constitutional convention was held in 1835 and among several 
changes made in the Constitution was the method of electing the 
governor. After this change the governor was elected by the peo- 
ple for a term of two years instead of being elected by the Legis- 
lature for a term of one year. Edward Bishop Dudley was the first 
governor elected by the people. 

North Carolina seceded from the Union May 20, 1861, and was 
readmitted to the Union in July, 1868. 

A new State Constitution was adopted in 1868 and since that 
date the governor has been elected by the people for four-year 
terms and he cannot succeed himself. There has not been a new 
constitution since 1868, but numerous amendments have been added 
to it. 

North Carolina has had a democratic administration since 1900, 
during which period it has made its greatest progress. 

North Carolina has had two permanent capitals — New Bern and 
Raleigh — and there have been three capitol buildings. Tryon's 
Palace in New Bern was constructed in the period, 1767-1770, and 
the main building was destroyed by fire February 27, 1798. The 
first capitol in Raleigh was completed in 1794 and was destroyed 
by fire on June 21, 1831. The present capitol was completed in 1840. 

The state in 1790 ceded her western lands, which was composed 
of Washington, Davidson, Hawkins, Greene. Sullivan. Sumner, and 
Tennessee counties, to the Federal government, and between 1790 
and 1796 the territory was known as Tennessee Territory, but in 
1796 it became the fifteenth state in the Union. 

In 1738, the General Assembly of North Carolina passed an act 
authorizing the establishment of district courts which served as 
appelant courts. These courts were authorized to be held in Bath, 
New Bern, and New Town — now Wilmington. In 1746, the General 
Assembly repealed the act of 1738 and established district courts 
to be held at Edenton, Wilmington, and Edgecombe. From 1754 
until 1790, other districts were formed as the state expanded in 
territory and developed needs for these districts. By 1790, there 
were eight judicial districts divided into two ridings of four dis- 
tricts each. In 1806, the General Assembly passed an act estab- 
lishing a superior court in each county. The act also set up judi- 



The Statk 5 

cial districts composed of certain continguous counties, and tliis 
practice of expanding tlie districts lias continued from five districts 
in 1806 until now there are thirty districts. 

When North Carolina adbpted the Federal Constitution on Novem- 
ber 21, 1789, she was authorized to send two senators and five rep- 
resentatives to the -Congress of the United States according to the 
constitutional apportionment. In 1792, when the first federal census 
had been completed and tabulated, it was found that North Carolina 
was entitled to ten representatives. It was then that the General 
Assembly divided the state into ten congressional districts. In 
1812, the state had grown and increased in population until it was 
entitled to thirteen representatives in Congress. Between 1812 and 
1865, however, the population decreased so much in proportion to 
the population of other states of the Union that North Carolina was 
by that time entitled only to seven representatives. After 1865 
the population of the state showed a steady increase so that begin- 
ning in 1943 North Carolina was entitled to twelve representatives 
in Congress. The 1960 census showed that the state had nearly 
a half million more people than in 1950, but this increase was not 
nearly as much in proportion to that of some of the other states. 
North Carolina is now entitled to only eleven representatives in 
Congress. 

Agriculture 

With its multiplicity of soil types, a wide range of temperatures, 
and an abundant rainfall. North Carolina produces a wide variety 
of agricultural commodities. Almost half of the Stale's total 
land area of 31.4 million acres is devoted to farming. According 
to the 19 59 U. S. Census, farm land and buildings in North Caro- 
lina were valued at 2.8 billion dollars. 

According to the 1960 U. S. Census of population. North Caro- 
lina ranked first in the Nation in farm population and 11th in 
total population. North Carolina ranks second to Texas in the 
number of farms. 

The progress made by Tar Heel farmers during recent years 
has enhanced North Carolina's position as one of the leading 
agricultural states of the Nation. Although acreages planted to 
many of the crops have been trending downward due primarily 
to smaller acreage allotments, farmers in the State are generally 
producing more efficiently than in earlier years, with the result 
that total agricultural income has continued to increase. Income 



6 NoKi H (\\i<()i.i.\A Manual 

statistics are not yet available for 1962; however, it is expected 
that s''0'>'> agricultural income will exceed that in 1961 by ono 
or two percent. 

In 1961, the most recent year tor which complete agricultural 
income statistics are available, cash receipts from farm market- 
ings and government payments to North Carolina farmers totaled 
$1,154,600,000. This total of almost 1.2 billion dollars is higher 
than any previous year and was exceeded by only ten other 
states — Texas in the South, California in the West and eight 
north central states. Of the total cash receipts, $322,300,00 
came from farm marketings of livestock and livestock products, 
$800,300,000 came from marketings of all crops and $3 2,012,000 
came from government payments. North Carolina ranked 19th 
in total cash receipts from livestock and livestock products and 
ranked fourth in total cash receipts from crops — exceeded only by 
California, Texas and Illinois. 

All tobacco accounted for $556.3 million, or 49.6 percent, of 
the total cash receipts from farm marketings of all commodities. 
Marketings of poultry and eggs totaled $166.5 million, meat ani- 
mals $85.0 million, dairy products $69.0 million, peanuts and soy- 
beans $65.5 million, cotton and cottonseed $52.2 million and 
feed crops $42.3 million. 

The highest cash receipts from 1961 marketings of major 
field crops, in the order named, came from tobacco, cotton, corn, 
peanuts, soybeans, wheat, and potatoes. The highest cash re- 
ceipts from marketings of livestock and livestock products, in the 
order named, came from commercial broilers, milk, eggs, hogs, 
cattle and calves, and turkeys. 

The downward trend in the total harvested acreage of major 
crops continued into 1961. The harvested acreage of major crops in 
1961 totaled 4.8 million acres — 4.6 percent below 1960 and 15.1 
percent below the 1951-60 average. Corn for grain acreage de- 
clined from 1.750,000 acres in 1960 to 1,383,000 acres in 1961. 
The acreage in sorghum grain declined from 8 4,000 acres in 19 60 
to 55,000 acres in 1961. The reduction in the acreage of both corn 
and sorghum grain was due to participation in the Feed Grain 
Program. The 1961 harvested acreage of potatoes, sweet-potatoes 
and commercial vegetables was also below 19 60. Other major 
crops such as wheat, oats, cotton, tobacco, lespedeza for seed, 
soybeans and all hay showed a combined increase in 1961 over 



The State 7 

196 u of 144,400 acres — less than half of the decline in the acreage 
of corn for grain. 

Record high per acre yields were realized in 1961 for small 
grains — wheat, oats, barley and rye. The average yield of flue- 
cured tobacco was slightly below 1960; however, an increase of 
5,5 00 acres harvested along with higher prices pushed the value 
of the 1961 Tar Heel flue-cured crop to $541.5 million — about 
$29 million above 1960. An increase in the per acre yield of cotton 
from 284 pounds in 1960 to 337 pounds in 19 61 combined with a 
higher average price raised the value of the 19 61 cotton crop to 
about $12.5 million above 1960. The value of the 1961 Tar Heel 
soybean crop totaled $29.5 million as compared with $24.6 
million in 1960. 

The contribution of Tar Heel farmers to the total economy of 
the State is not limited to the production of food and fiber alone. 
Tar Heel farmers spent more than a half billion dollars for items 
such as feed, seed, fertilizer, petroleum fuel and oil and other 
miscellaneous items in the operation of their farms during 1961. 
In addition, many thousands of people are employed by industries 
processing the raw products and by industries manufacturing 
goods primarily for use on farms. Regardless of the measurement 
used, we reach the inevitable conclusion that agriculture in North 
Carolina is "big business." 

Conservation and Development 

North Carolina's national leadership in the textile, tobacco 
and furniture industries was enhanced during the biennium by 
the addition of more than 1,000 new and expanded plants in 
these and other industries. Capital investments by North Carolina 
firms adding to their facilities and by new enterprise entering our 
state from outside was $498 million. New payrolls totaled $212 
million for 64,000 workers. 

The trend toward industrial diversification was accentuated 
under the leadership of the Department of Consei'vation and De- 
velopment which worked in close cooperation with more than 
200 local and area development organizations and state and fede- 
ral agencies.

Emphasis on food processing that was a feature of the 1960-62 
biennium is continuing with increased force into the future. This 
industry, benefitting from research programs at N. C. State College 
and private laboratories, is adding greater value to our agri- 
cultural product through processing, and also providing em- 
ployment for workers freed by ever-increasing mechanization of 
farming. 

In this biennium, records of the Department of Conservation 
and Development show that more than 3 4,0 00 persons were em- 
ployed in 938 food processing plants whose output was valued 
at approximately a billion dollars. Meat, sweet potatoes, beans, 
peaches, white potatoes and seafood are principal products. Re- 
search is going forward with tomatoes and seafood.

biennium to the extent that the value of its catch exceeded $15 
millions and that more than 6,000 commercial fishing boats were

The State 9 

engaged in it, has barely scratched the surface. Research aimed 
both at increasing production of fin and shellfish and in processing 
and marketing the catch is laying the foundation for greatly ex- 
panded production in years ahead. 

North Carolina's employable work force of nearly 525,000 in 
19 61 is being augmented constantly by graduates of our colleges 
and high schools and, increasingly, from our state-wide system 
of industrial education centers. 

Research in all fields was stepped up. Development of the Re- 
search Triangle continued with addition of the U. S. Forest Service 
laboratory and other enterprises. 

Attention was focused on international trade by the first North 
Carolina Trade Fair in 1961 and industrial and travel missions 
to Europe. This emphasis is being extended in the biennium 
ahead with the second international Trade Fair in Charlotte in 
1963 which was heralded by our industrial mission to Europe in 
1962. This mission, arranged by the Department of Conserva- 
tion and Development, was participated in by public-spirited 
citizens at no expense to the State. Opportunities for develop- 
ment of our industry both by opening up export markets for 
products made here and by attracting plants of foreign manu- 
facturers to locate in North Carolina, are being pursued con- 
tinuously. 

The North Carolina State Parks offer one of the most reward- 
ing uses of our natural resources. During 1961 and 19 62 more 
than three and one quarter million people visited and used the 
parks — more than in any previous two year period. During this 
period visitors came from 47 states, the District of Columbia and 
25 foreign countries. This period also saw growth in the system. 
Two new areas were added bringing the total number of state parks 
to 13. 

The travel-serving industry, promoted throughout the world 
by the State Advertising Division, continued giant strides for- 
ward. In 1961 over 25 million travelers from out of the State 
visited "Variety Vacationland" and brought $254 million in new- 
money, of which $17 million went directly to the State treasury 
in taxes. 

Including North Carolinians traveling in their own State, ex- 
penditures by travelers in 1961 totaled $42:; million, an increasf 
of 3.7 percent over 1960 and 176 percent over 194S. Tr;ivt'iprs 



10 North Carolina Manual 

constitute about one-half the entire volume of the travel-serving 
industry, which grossed $888 million in 1961 and gave em- 
ploymont to 75.450 persons working for 18,600 business enter- 
prises. Including gasoline taxes, the travel-serving industry pro- 
duced $160 million in State revenues, or 33 percent of the total 
for 1961. 

New highways and bridges and new and expanded privately 
operated tourist attractions like Ghost Mountain in the Great 
Smokies, Tweetsie Railroad, and Grandfather Mountain in the 
Blue Ridge, and the Battleship North Carolina Memorial on th2 
Coast, greatly enhanced the lure of "Variety Vacationland" for 
future business for this major industry. 

During the biennium the aggressive selling job of the Adver- 
tising Division included the pioneer state-sponsored mission to 
Europe in cooperation with the "Visit U.S.A." program of the 
U. S. Department of Commerce, the first state-sponsored visit of 
European travel executives to the U.S.A., increased newspaper, 
magazine, television and radio advertising, and participation in 
major travel shows in New York, Washington and Cincinnati. 
This program, augmented by striking new motion pictures, is 
continuing with vigor into the new biennium when there is every 
indication that the State's travel-serving industry's dollar volume 
will approach the billion-dollar-a-year mark. 

Products from North Carolina's 20 million acres of carefully 
conserved and managed forests are adding more than a billion 
dollars to the State's economy annually. Each of the State's 100 
counties has forest land. 

Stone and gravel, copper, mica, tungsten, feldspar, and clays, 
in that order, established a new dollar value during the bien- 
nium for the State's mineral industry. The Bureau of Mines. 
U. S. Department of Interior, estimated annual output value of 
$50 million. Tar Heel brick manufacture now leads the nation. 
The State was also first in the nation in production of lithium 
minerals, feldspar, crushed granite, sheet and scrap mica. It was 
second in olivine and tungsten, and third in talc and pyrophylite. 
Seventy-five of the known 300 minerals and rocks in North 
Carolina have commercial value. 

Impact of two newer divisions of the Department of Conserva- 
tion and Development was felt during the biennium, and will be 
increasingly important in the future. 



The State 11 

The Community Planning Division assisted 7 5 municipalities 
and 14 counties witli services including base maps, land use 
surveys, population and economy trend studies, and planning for 
thoroughfares, central business districts, parks and other com- 
munity projects. This division offers continuing technical as- 
sistance to municipal and county officials, and may act in their 
behalf in obtaining federal planning grants up to 60 «^ of cost 
of eligible projects. 

The Geodetic Survey Division added approximately 60 new 
permanent survey markers to the existing 2,300 already in the 
State. These are of great value to engineers, project developers, 
and land surveyors. Use of this basic system by development 
groups increased immensely during the biennium. Index maps 
have been published for each of the 100 counties showing the 
location of each marker with its descriptive data. 

New services were added during the biennium by the Com- 
munity and Industrial Services section, which works closely with 
local and regional development groups in bringing suppliers and 
manufacturers together, searching out markets and developing 
new facilities and products. 

Described as the "Dixie Dynamo", North Carolina is setting 
the pace in the South in conservation and development of its 
natural resources. 

Name it, and most likely you can find it in North Carolina. 
Our industry ranges from A (aircraft) to Z (zippers). Our 
Variety Vacationland stretches from the highest mountains in 
Eastern America to Atlantic Ocean beaches. We are a sample 
case of minerals — over 300 varieties. Our forests, farmlands 
and fishing waters yield bounteous crops of food and fibre. 

These and other qualities that make North Carolina a good 
state in which to live, work and play are being conserved and 
developed in the broad perspective that recognizes the future as 
belonging to those who prepare for it. 

Public Health in North Carolina 

North Carolina has a vigorous and effective program of public 
health. 

The State Board of Health and the 68 local health departments 
serving the 100 counties assure an alert concern for the health 
conditions in all facilities serving the public. Basic State laws 



12 North Carolina Manual 

empower the health departments to inspect and regulate conditions 
affecting health. 

While there were various laws and statutes relating to public 
health measures passed prior to that time, the State Board of Health 
was created by the General Assembly of 1877, and has been func- 
tioning, with changes from time to time, ever since. The General 
Assembly of 1957 recodified, and to a considerable extent modern- 
ized, all public health and related laws of North Carolina. This was 
done for purposes of coordination and clarification. Guilford has 
the distinction of being the first county in the United States to 
inaugurate full-time county health work, June 20, 1911. The follow- 
ing year, Robeson became the first purely ru"^l county in the United 
States to take this step, but it was not until July 1, 1949 that the 
last four counties provided this service. 

There has been continued progress in public health in these 
more than five decades. Illustrations of this can be found in every 
aspect of the legal responsibilities placed upon the State Board of 
Health. Among these may be noted: compulsory immunization of 
children under six for poliomyelitis; surveys in the areas of air 
pollution and environmental health; and the establishment of a 
coordinated State Radiological Program. North Carolina published 
the nation's first Occupational Health Manual in 1961. 

Nearly a million dollars a year is being spent on surgical, medical 
and hospital service to handicapped children. We have a progres- 
sive school-health coordinating unit and programs of service are 
being carried on for the aged and for the chronically ill. Many 
preventive services are rendered by the modern Laboratory Division 
and by both the consultant staff of the State Board and by the staffs 
of the local health departments. 

State Highway Systems 

On January 1, 1962, the State had under its direct jurisdiction 
71,442 miles of highways, roads and streets, a distance equivalent 
to two and one half times around the world at the equator. This 
vast mileage is almost 11 per cent of the gross length of all mileage 
under State control in the entire Nation. The three basic systems 
in this North Carolina network are as follows: 

The Primary State Highway System in rural areas is made up 
of the U. S., N. C. and Interstate numbered routes, and has a length 
of 11,3.53 miles, substantially all hard surfaced. The largest of the 
three systems is the Rural Secondary System of 57.064 miles, of 



The State 13 

which 25,820 miles are paved — the remainder being surfaced with 
stone, soil or other all weather material. There is more rural pav- 
ing in North Carolina than in any other state except Texas, Cali- 
fornia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. Some 96% of the State's 
rural people live on, or within one mile of a paved highway or road. 

In addition to these two rural systems, the State has jurisdiction 
over 3,025 miles of streets which form a part of the State Highway 
and Roads systems in municipalities. Of this Municipal System, 
2,791 miles are paved. 

Combining the three systems, the State operates a network of 
37,089 miles of paved and 31,328 miles of unpaved highways, roads 
and streets. The State has direct jurisdction over more mileage 
than has any other road governing body in the nation. In terms of 
size and population, no other state exceeds North Carolina in the 
extent of road services provided for its people. There are no toll 
roads or bridges in North Carolina. 

Major emphasis is now being placed on modernizing many obso- 
lete sections of the Primary System, and building the Interstate 
Expressway System. Some 342 miles of the latter have already 
been built and opened to traffic. 

Since 1921, the entire Road and Highway Program of the State 
has been financed exclusively from the gasoline tax, motor vehicle 
license fees and Federal Aid, without recourse to property taxation 
or aid from the General State Fund. During the past fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1962, the State Highway Fund, including Federal 
Aid, expended $205,572,736 for highway, road, and street construc- 
tion, maintenance, betterments and improvements, including the 
operation of the Motor Vehicle Department, Highway Patrol, High- 
way Safety Division, other state agencies, and the retirement of 
Secondary Road Bonds. 

RuKAL Electuic a.m) Tei.kpiioxe Servicf. 
Rural areas of North Carolina received little benehis from rural 
electrification prior to 1935, which is often spoken of as the start- 
ing point. At that time, only 1,884 miles of rural lines serving 
11,558 farms were recorded by the North Carolina Rural Electrifica- 
tion Authority, which was created in that year to secure electric 
service for the rural areas. Today the Authority reports in opera- 
tion 87,730 miles of rural lines serving 669,229 consumers. In addi- 
tion to this, there were 356 miles under construction or authorized 
for construction to serve 3,078 consumers. Electrification li;i'^ con- 



14 NoKTH Carolina Manual 

tributed considerably to the great progress in agricultural develop- 
ment over the past few years. The electrified farm provides for 
comfort and health in farm living through lighting, refrigeration, 
communication, ranges, washing machines, freezers, plumbing and 
all other many useful household electric appliances. 

Electric service is essential to modern farm production. Elec- 
tricity is used by farmers in many ways — yard and building lighting; 
running water; poultry incubators, brooders, and feeders; livestock 
feeding; milking; grain and hay driers; irrigation; and many other 
electric-motor driven pieces of farm producing equipment. Elec- 
tricity affords fire protection and the operation of many labor- 
saving devices for the rural home and farm activities. Electric 
service is practically essential in types of farm production; for 
example, the production of Grade A Milk. 

The 1945 United States Census indicated that only 14,539 North 
Carolina farms had telephone service. The desire and need in the 
rural areas for communication, so essential to the well-being of the 
people was so widespread that the 1945 General Assembly enacted 
the Rural Telephone Act, charging the North Carolina Rural Elec- 
trification Authority with the responsibility of assisting rural resi- 
dences in securing telephone service. Funds and personnel were 
first assigned to the program in 1949, which might well be termed 
the active beginning. Through the activities of the State Authority 
and other State agencies and as a result of cooperation on the part 
of the telephone industry and the organization of a number of 
member-owned Telephone Membership Corporations, over six times 
as many farms now have telephone service as in 1945. In addition, 
a greater number of rural nonfarm residences also have service. 

Public Schools 

North Carolina provides a basic State-supported nine months pub- 
lic school term, which is supplemented by the 173 local units. Public 
school enrollment in 1961-62 was 1,141,574. There were 41,867 
teachers and 2,207 principals and supervisors and 173 superintend- 
ents. Nearly 60 per cent of all general fund taxes collected by 
the State are used for elementary and secondary schools. The State 
operates a bus fleet of 8,242 vehicles, transporting 537,358 children 
to the public schools. Attendance is compulsory for children between 
ages 7 and 16. There are 3,131 public school buildings and the total 
value of public school property is $829,685,500.

COLLEGKS AXD UNIVEKSITIKS 

The University of North Carolina, chartered in 1789. was the 
first State university to open its doors. The Greater University of 
North Carolina is comprised of the University at Chapel Hill, State 
College at Raleigh, and Woman's College at Greensboro. In all 
there are 62 institutions of higher learning in the State. Twelve 
are State-supported. Forty-one are private or church-related. Five 
are public institutions with some State support. There are 38 
senior, 20 junior, 1 theological seminary, and 3 unclassified institu- 
tions. Duke University in Durham is one of the most heavily en- 
dowed institutions of higher learning in the world. Total university 
and college enrollment in 1962-63 was 80,804. 



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 pur- 
pose. Commissioners 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 Com- 
missioners contracted 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, 
and 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 1934-35 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 Slate. Had the State been compelled to purchase this ma- 
terial the cost of the Capitol would have been considerably in- 
creased. 

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 thin 

17 



18 NoRTU Cakolina Manual 

$100,000, yet the 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 9TY2 feet in the 
center. The apex of pediment is 64 feet in height. The stylobate 
to 18 feet in height. The columns of the east and west porticoes 
are 5 feet 2i/^ inches in diameter. An entablature, including block- 
ing 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 
Avas 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 orna- 
ment 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 appro- 
priated as offices to the Governor, Secretary, Treasurer, and Comp- 
troller, each having two rooms of tlie same size — the one contain- 
ing 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 



The Capitoi. 19 

of 231 square feet; of four 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 LEGISLATIVE BUILDING 

(Named by Cli. 8, SL 1963) 
By Ralph B. Reevks, Jk. 

The Building Commission 

The 1959 General Assembly appropriated funds and autlioiized 
the establishment of a Building Commission for the construction of 
a new building for the Legislative Branch of the State Governmeni. 
The statute provided that two members be appointed by each Pre- 
siding Officer of the two Houses and that three be appointed l)y the 
Governor. 

Archie K. Davis and Robert F. Morgan were appointed by Lieu- 
tenant Governor Luther E. Barnhardt; B. I. Satterfield and Thomas 
J. White were appointed by Speaker of the House Addison Hewlett; 
and Governor Hodges appointed A. E. Finley, Edwin Gill, and 
Oliver R. Rowe. 

The Commission elected Thomas J. White as Chairman and 
Robert F. Morgan as Vice Chairman. Paul A. Johnston, Director 
of the Department of Administration, was elected Executive Secre- 
tary; and upon his resignation, the Commission elected Frank B. 
Turner, State Property Officer, to succeed him. 

To perform architectural services, the Commission selected Ed- 
ward Durell Stone of New York with John S. Holloway and Ralph 
B. Reeves, Jr., Associated. 

After prolonged study, the Commission selected a site one block 
North of the Capitol and encompassing a two-block area. The SVa- 
acre site is bounded by Jones, Salisbury, Lane, and Wilmington 
streets. Halifax Street between Jones and Lane streets was closed 
and included within the new site. 

Bids were received in December, 1960; construction commenced in 
early 1961. The 1961 General Assembly appropriated an additional 
$1 million for furnishings and equipment bringing the total appro- 
priation to $5% million. 

Based upon the latest census, the cost of the building to citizens 
of North Carolina was $1.24 each.

22 NoKTn Carolina Manual 

Description of the Building 

The State Legislative Building, though not an imitation of his- 
toric classical styles, is classical in character. Rising from a 34tV 
foot wide podium of North Carolina granite, the building proper is 
242 feet square. The walls and the columns are of Vermont marble, 
the latter forming a colonnade encompassing the building and 
reaching 24 feet from the podium to the roof of the second floor. 

Inset in the south podium floor, at the main entrance, is a 28-foot 
diameter terrazzo mosaic of the Great Seal of the State. From the 
first floor main entrance (at Jones Street) the carpeted 22-foot wide 
main stair extends directly to the third floor and the public galleries 
of the Senate and House, the auditorium, the display area, and the 
roof gardens. 

The four garden courts are located at the corners of the building. 
These courts contain tropical plants, and three have pools, foun- 
tains, and hanging planters. The main floor areas of the courts are 
located in the first floor, and mezzanines overlook the courts from 
the second floor. The skylights which provide natural lighting are 
located within the roof gardens overhead. The courts provide access 
to committee rooms in the first floor, the legislative chambers in the 
second floor, and to membei's' offices in both floors. 

The Senate and House chambers, each 5,180 square feet in area, 
occupy the east and west wings of the second floor. Following the 
traditional relationship of the two chambers in the Capitol, the two 
spaces are divided by the rotunda; and when the main brass doors 
are open, the two presiding officers face one another. Each pair 
of brass doors weigh 1,500 pounds. 

The five pyramidal roofs covering the Senate and House chambers, 
the auditorium, the main stair, and the rotunda are sheathed with 
copper, as is the Capitol. The pyramidal shape of the roofs is 
visible in the pointed ceilings inside. The structural ribs form a 
coffered ceiling; and inside the coffered patterns, concentric pat- 
terns are outlined in gold. In each chamber, the distance from the 
floor to the peak of the ceiling is 45 feet. 

Chandeliers in the chambers and main stair are 8 feet in diameter 
and weigh 625 pounds each. The 12-foot diameter chandelier of 
the rotunda, like the others, is of brass; but its weight is 750 
pounds. 



The Capitol 23 

Because of the interior environment, the garden courts and 
rotunda have tropical plants and trees. Outside, however, the 
shrubs and trees are of an indigenous type. Among the trees in 
the grounds, on the podium, and in the roof areas are sugar maples, 
dogwoods, crabapples, magnolias, crepe myrtles, and pines. 

Throughout the building, the same color scheme is maintained: 
Walnut, white, gold, and red, with green foliage. In general, all 
wood is American walnut, metal is brass or other gold color material, 
carpets are red, and upholstery is gold or black. 

The enclosed area consists of 206,000 square feet of floor area with 
a volume of 3,210,000 cubic feet. Heating equipment provides over 
7,000,000 B.T.U. per hour; and the cooling equipment has a capacity 
of 620 tons. For lighting, motors, and other electrical equipment, 
the building has a connected service load of over 2,000,000 watts.

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 oh 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 let- 
ters this inscription: "May 20th, 1775," and that below the star 
there shall be a similar scroll containing in black letters the in- 
scription: "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 in- 
stitutions and public buildings shall provide a North Carolina flag, 
of such dimensions and materials 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 coun- 
ties in this State shall likewise authorize the procuring of a North 
Carolina 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 o. 291; 
1907, c. 838.)

viz: 

1. Resolved, That whosoever directly or indirectly abetted or in 
any way form or manner countenanced the unchartered and dan- 
gerous invasion of our rights as claimed by Great Britain is an 
enemy to this country, to America, and to the inherent and in- 
alienable rights of man. 

2. Resolved. That we the citizens of Mecklenburg County, do 
hereby dissolve the political bands which have connected us to the 
mother country and hereby absolve ourselves from all allegiance 
to the British Crown and abjure all political connection contract 
or association with that nation who have wantonly trampled on 
our rights and liberties and inhumanly shed the blood of American 
patriots at Lexington.

than that of our God and the General Government of the Congress 
to the maintenance of which independence we solemnly pledge to 
each other our mutual cooperation, our lives, our fortunes, and our 
most sacred honor. 

4. Resolved, That as we now acknowledge the existence and con- 
trol of no law or legal officer, civil or military within this County,

immunities, or authority therein. 

5. Resolved. That it is further decreed that all, each and every 
Military Officer in this County is hereby reinstated in his former 
command and authority, he acting conformably to these regula- 
tions. And that every member present of this delegation shall 
henceforth be a civil officer, viz., a justice of the peace, in the 
character of a "committee man" to issue process, hear and deter- 
mine all matters of controversy according to said adopted laws 
and to preserve peace, union and harmony in said county, and 
to use every exertion to spread the love of Country and fire of 
freedom throughout America, until a more general and organized 
government be established in this Province.

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 docu- 
ments 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 de- 
scribed 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.)

THE STATE BIRD 

By popular choice the Cardinal was selected for adoption as 
our State Bird as of March 4, 1943. (S. L. 1943 c. 595; G. S. 
145-2.) 

This bird is sometimes called the Winter Redbird because it is 
most conspicuous in winter and is the only "redbird" present at 
that season. It is an all year round resident and one of the com- 
monest birds in our gardens and thickets. It is about the size of a 
Catbird with a longer tail, red all over, except that the throat and 
region around the bill is black; the head is conspicuously crested 
and the large stout bill is red; the female is much duller — the red 
being mostly confined to the crest, wings and tail. There are no 
seasonal changes in the plumage. 

The Cardinal is a fine singer, and what is unusual among birds 
the female is said to sing as well as the male, which latter sex 
usually has a monopoly of that art in the feathered throngs. 

The nest is rather an untidy affair built of weed stems, grass 
and similar materials in a low shrub, small tree or bunch of briars, 
usually not over four feet above the ground. The usual number 
of eggs to a set is three in this State, usually four further North. 
Possibly the Cardinal raises an extra brood down here to make 
up the difference, or possibly he can keep up his normal population 
more easily here through not having to face inclement winters 
of the colder North. A conspicuous bird faces more hazards. 

The cardinal is by nature a seed eater, but he does not dislike 
small fruits and insects.

THE HALIFAX RESOLUTION 

A<iopled by tho Provincial Congress of North Carolina in Session 
ai Halifax, April 12, 1776. 

It appears to your committee that pursuant to the plan con- 
certed by the British Ministry for subjugating America, the King 
and Parliament of Great Britian have usurped a power over the 
persons and properties of the people unlimited and uncontrolled; 
and disregarding 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 em- 
ployed in destroying 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 masters. That ships belonging to America are 
declared prizes of war and many of them have been violently 
seized and confiscated. In consequence of all of which multitudes 
of the people have been destroyed, or from easy circumstances re- 
duced 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 obtaining redress by those means alone which have been 
hitherto tried, 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 dele- 
gates from time to time (under the direction of a general repre- 
sentation thereof), to meet the delegates of the other Colonies for 
such purposes as shall be hereafter pointed out.

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 regi- 
ment 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-uns heels to 
make you stick better in the next fight." Creecy relates that Gen- 
eral Lee, hearing of the incident, said: "God bless the Tar Heel 
boys," and from that they took the name. — Adapted from Grand- 
father 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 for more condensed and terse than the English. The 
three words, "Esse Quam Videri," require at least six English 
words to express the same idea. 

Curiosity has been aroused to learn the origin of our State 
motto. It is found in Cicero in his essay on Friendship (Cicero de 

Amicitia, Chap. 2*6) 

39 



40 Noinii Caiiom.na Ma.mai. 

It is a little singular that until the act of 1893 the sovereign 
State of North Carolina had no motto since its declaration of in- 
dependence. 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 14.5; G. S. 144-2.) 

The State Colors 

Tlie General Assembly of 1945 declared Red and Blue of shades 
appearing in the North Carolina State Flag and the American 
Flag as the official State Colors. (Session Laws, 1945, c. 878; 

The State Flower 

The General Assembly of 19 41 designated the dogwood as the 
State flower. (Public Laws, 19 41, c. 28 9; G. S. 14 5-1.) 

The State Song 

The song known as "The Old North State" was adopted as the 
official song of the State of North Carolina by the General Assem- 
bly of 1927. (Public Laws, 1927, c. 26; G.S. 149-1). 

The State Tree 

The pine was officially designated as the State tree by the General 
Assembly of 1963. (Session Laws, 1963, c. 41). 

The State's Toast 

Officially adopted as the toast of North Carolina by the General 
Assembly of 1957. (Session Laws, 1957. c. 777.) 

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! 

Here's to the land of the cotton bloom white, 
Where the scuppernong perfumes the breeze at night. 
Where the soft southern moss and jessamine mate, 
'Neath the murmuring pines of the Old North State! 



Public Holidays 41 

Here's to the laud where the galax grows, 
Where the rhodedendron's rosette glows, 
Where soars Mount Mitchell's summit great, 
In the "Land of the Sky," in the Old North State! 

Here's to the land where maidens are fair, 
Where friends are true and cold hearts rare. 
The near land, the dear land whatever fate, 
The blest land, the best land, the Old North State!

CONSTITUTION 

OF THE 

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 



PREAMBLE 



We, the people of the State of North Carolina, grateful to 
Almighty God, the Sovereign Ruler of Nations, for the preservation 
of the American Union and the existence of our civil, political and 
religious liberties, and acknowledging our dependence upon Him 
for the continuance of those blessings to us and our posterity, do, 
for the more certain security thereof, and for the better govern- 
ment of this State, ordain and establish this Constitution: 

ARTICLE I 

DECLARATION 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 defined and affirmed, we do declare: 

Section 1. The equality anci rights of persons. That we hold it 
to be self-evident that all persons are created equal; that they are 
endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable 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 regulat- 
ing the internal government and police thereof, and of altering and 
abolishing their Constitution and form of government whenever 
it may be necessary to their safety and happiness; but every such 

4S 



46 North Caeolina Manual 

right should be exercised in pursuance of law, and consistently 
with the Constitution of the United States. 

Sec. 4. TJiat 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 Con- 
stitution 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 Conven- 
tion of 1868, '68-'69, '69-10, declared invalid; exception. The State 
shall never assume or pay, or authorize the collection of any debt 
or obligation, 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 authority of the Convention of the year one thousand 
eight hundred and sixty-eight, nor any debt or bond incurred or 
issued by the Legislature of the year one thousand eight hundred 
and sixty-eight, either at its special session of the year one thou- 
sand 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 thousand 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 person or set of persons 
are entitled to exclusive or separate emoluments or privileges from 
the community but in consideration of public services. 



Constitution 47 

Sec. 8. The legislative, executive and judicial poioers 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 suspend- 
ing laws, or the execution of laws, by any authority, without the 
consent of the representatives of the people, is injurious to their 
rights, and ought not to be exercised. 

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

Sec. 11. In criminal prosecutions. In all criminal prosecutions, 
every person charged with crime has the right to be informed of 
the accusation and to confront the accusers and witnesses with 
other testimony, and to have counsel for defense, and not be com- 
pelled to give self-incriminating evidence, 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. But any person, 
when represented by counsel, may, under such regulations as the 
Legislature shall prescribe, waive indictment in all except capital 
cases. 

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 
persons 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 punishments 
inflicted. 

Sec. 15. General warrants. 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 imprison- 
ment for debt in this State, except in cases of fraud. 



48 North Carolina Manual 

Sec. 17. No jiersons taken, etc., but by law of land. No person 
ought to be taken, imprisoned or disseized of his freehold, liber- 
ties, 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 law 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. No person shall be 
excluded from jury service on account of sex. 

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 privilege of the writ of habeas 
corpus shall not be suspended. 

Sec. 22. Property qualification. As political rights and privi- 
leges 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 repre- 
sentatives 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 standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they 
ought not to be kept up, and the military should be kept under 
strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power. Nothing 
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. 



Constitution 49 

good, to instruct their representatives, and to apply to the Legis- 
lature for redress of grievances. But secret political societies are 
dangerous to the liberties of a free people, and should not be 
tolerated. 

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

Sec. 27. Education. The people have a 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. 

Sec. 29. Recurrence to fundamental principles. A frequent re- 
currence to fundamental principles is absolutely necessary to pre- 
serve 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 laics. 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 restrospectively sales, purchases, or other acts previous- 
ly 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. 

Sec. 34. State boundaries. The limits and boundaries of the 
State shall be and remain as they now are. 

Sec. 35. Courts shall be open. All courts shall be open; and 
every person for an injury done him in his lands, goods, person, 
or reputation, shall have remedy by due course of law. and right 
and justice administered without sale, denial, or delay. 



50 North Carolina Manual 

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. 

Sec. 37. Treason against the State. Treason against the State 
shall consist only in levying war against it or adhering to its enemies, 
giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of trea- 
son unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, 
or on confession in open court. No conviction of treason or attainder 
shall work corruption of blood or forfeiture. 

Sec. 38. Other rights of the people. This enumeration of rights 
shall not be construed to impair or deny others retained by the 
people; and all powers not herein delegated remain with the 
people. 

ARTICLE II 

LEGISLATIVE DEPARTMENT 

Section 1. Tivo branches. The legislative authority shall be vested 
in two distinct branches, both dependent on the people, to-wit: a 
Senate and House of Representatives. 

Sec. 2. Ti7ne of assembly. The Senate and House of Representa- 
tives shall meet biennially on the first Wednesday after the first 
Monday in February next after their election, unless a different day 
shall be provided by law; and when assembled, shall be denomi- 
nated the General Assembly. Neither house shall proceed upon 
public business unless a majority of all the members are actually 
present. 

Sec. 3. Number of Senators. The Senate shall be composed of 
fifty Senators, biennially chosen by ballot. 

Sec. 4. Regulations in relation to districting the State for Sena- 
tors. The Senate Districts shall be so altered by the General 
Assembly, at the first Session after the return of every enumera- 
tion by order of Congress, that each Senate District shall contain, 
as near as may be, an equal number of inhabitants, excluding 
aliens and Indians not taxed, and shall remain unaltered until the 
return of another enumeration, and shall at all times consist of 
contiguous territory; and no county shall be divided in the forma- 
tion of a Senate District, unless such county shall be equitably 
entitled to two or more Senators. 



Constitution 61 

Sec. 5. Regulations in relation to apportionment of Representa- 
tives. The House of Representatives shall be composed of 120 Rep- 
resentatives, biennially chosen by ballot, to be elected by the counties 
respectively, according to their population, and each county shall 
have at least one Representative in the House of Representatives, 
although it may not contain the requisite ratio of representation. 
This apportionment shall be made by the Speaker of the House of 
Representatives at the first regular Session of the General Assembly 
convening after the return of every enumeration by order of Con- 
gress. The formula set out in Section 6 of this Article shall be 
applied by the Speaker and the new apportionment entered on the 
Journal of the House of Representatives on or before the 60th 
calendar day of the Session. When so entered, the new apportion- 
ment shall have the same force and effect as an Act of the General 
Assembly, and shall become effective at the next election for members 
of the General Assembly. 

Sec. 6. Ratio of representation. In making the apportionment 
in the House of Representatives, the ratio of representation shall 
be ascertained by dividing the amount of the population of the 
State, exclusive of that comprehended within those counties which 
do not severally contain the one hundred and twentieth part of the 
population of the State, by the number of Representatives, less 
the number assigned to such counties; and in ascertaining the 
number of the population of the State, aliens and Indians not 
taxed shall not be included. To each county containing the said 
ratio and not twice the said ratio there shall be assigned one 
Representative; to each county containing twice but not three 
times the said ratio there shall be assigned two Representatives, 
and so on progressively, and then the remaining Representatives 
shall be assigned severally to the counties having the largest 
fractions. 

Sec. 7. Qualifications for Senators. Each member of the Senate 
shall not be less than twenty-five years of age, shall have resided 
in the State as a citizen two years, and shall have usually resided 
in the district for which he was chosen one year immediately pre-

THE AMERICAN'S CREED 

I believe in the United States of America, as a government ot 
tlie people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are 
derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a re- 
public; a sovereign 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 American's Creed by William Tyler Page was adopted by 
an act of Congress, April 6. 1918.) 

THE AMERICAN FLAG, IT'S ORIGIN 

In 1775, the Philadelphia Troop of Light Horse carried a stand- 
ard with thirteen alternate blue and silver stripes in the upper 
left-hand corner. At Cambridge on January 2, 1776, Washington 
without authorization 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 "Continental Flag," and was employed until dis- 
placed by the Stars and Stripes adopted by the Continental Con- 
gress. 

The beautiful tradition that Betsy Ross, as early as June 17 7(i. 
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." 

87 



88 North Carolina Manual 

This action was necessitated by the admission of the States of 
Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. 

The tiag of 1795 had the stars arranged in three rows of five 
each instead of in a circle, and served for 2 3 years. 

With the admission of more new states, however, it became 
apparent that the 179 5 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 Hag 
of the United States be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red 
and white; that the union have twenty stars, white in a blue field. 

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

Since 1818 additional stars have been added until today there 
are 50 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 they form five rows of six stars each and four 
rows of five stars each. 

Betsy Ross, it is now said, lived at 23 3 Arch Street, Philadel- 
phia, and not at 239. She made flags, but says Theodore D. Gott- 
lieb, she never made the first Stars and Stripes. He adds: "The 
Department of State, the War and Navy departments, the Histori- 
cal Sites Commission 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, 18 7U, 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 American Flag 89 

"The legend grew to strength from 1888 to 189:', when pro- 
motors 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 

(The United States Code, 1958) 
(Chapter 10, Sections 171-172, 174-178) 

Sec. 171. When the national anthem is played and the Hag is

played, all present should face the flag and salute. 

Sec. 172. The following is designated as 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, 
under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Such 
pledge should be rendered by standing with the right hand over 
the heart. However, civilians will always show full respect to the 
flag when the pledge is given by merely standing at attention. 
men removing the headdress. Persons in uniform shall render 
the military salute. 

Sec. 174. (a) It is the universal custom to display the flag only

(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

No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any 
other national or international flag equal, above or in a position

tion of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags 
in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag 
of the United States at the Headquarters of the United Nations. 

(d) The flag of the United States of America, when it is dis-

or to the right of the flag of the United States. 

(g) When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are

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 platform should be placed at the clergy- 
man'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 con- 
gregation or audience as they face the chancel or platform. Any

it is lowered for the day. By "half-staff" is meant lowering 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.

The Pledge to the Flag 

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

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

The Pledge to the Flag, according to a report of the Historical 
Committee of the United States Flag Association (May 18, 19.39). 
was written by Francis Bellamy (August 1892), a member of the 
editorial staff of The Youth's Companion, in Boston, Massachu- 
setts. 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 
Philadelphia, 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 Penn- 
sylvania Historical Society, Philadelphia. He played the organ and 
harpsichord. 



THE CAPITOL AT WASHINGTON 

The Capitol building in Washington, D. C, is situated on a 
plateau 8 8 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 38°53'20.4" N. and longitude 
70'^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 28 7 feet, 
five and one-half inches. The dome is built of iron, and the aggre- 
gate weight of material used in its construction is 8,909,200 
pounds. 

The Statue 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 ot Clark Mills, on the Bladensburg Road, near Wash- 
ington. The cost of the casting and the expenses in connection 
were $20,796.82, and the sculptor was paid $3,000 for the plaste,- 
model. It was erected and placed in its present position Decembei 
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 sub-

as a law library. 

The Capitol has a floor area of 14 acres, and 4 30 rooms are de- 
voted to office, committee, and storage purposes. There are 14.5 IS 
square feet of skylights, 679 windows, and 550 doorways. 

The dome receives light through 108 windows, and from the 
architect's office to the dome there are 3 65 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 cere- 
monies. 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 ISOU 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 co 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 18 27. Its cost, including 
the grading of the grounds, alterations, and repairs, up to 18 27, 
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 architectual direc- 
tion of Thomas U. Walter until 18 65, 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 of Lee. Massa- 
chusetts, and that in the columns from the quarries from Cokeys- 
ville, Maryland. The House extension was first occupied for legis- 
lative purposes December 16, 1857, and the Senate January 4, 
1859. 

The House office building was begun in 190 5 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 struc- 
ture, $5,019,251.

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 separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident : That all men are creat- 
ed equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain in- 
alienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty and the pur- 
suit of Happiness. That, to secure these rights, Governments are 
instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent 
of the governed; That, whenever any Form of Government be- 
comes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to 
alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its 
foundations on such principles, and organizing its powers in such 
forms, 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 experience 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 invari- 
ably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under abso- 
lute 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 usurpations, all hav- 
ing 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 
necessary for the public good. 

98 



Declakatiox oi- Independence 99 

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 Rec- 
ords, 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 
Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exer- 
cise; the State remaining, in the meantime, exposed to all the 
dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States for 
that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreign- 
ers; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, 
and raising 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 sub- 
stance. 

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, aiid unacknowledged by our laws; 
giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 



100 North Carolina Manual 

For protecting them, by a inock Trial, from punishment for any 
Murders which they shoukl 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 neighbor- 
ing Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and 
enlarging its Boundaries, so as to render it at once an example 
and flit 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 mer- 
cenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, 
already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely 
paralleled in the 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 exe- 
cutioners 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 merci- 
less Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undis- 
tinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Re- 
dress 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. 



Declaration of Independence 101 

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. 
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their 
legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We 
have reminded 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 com- 
mon kindred to disavow these usurpations, whicli inevitably inter- 
rupt our connections with correspondence. They, too, have been 
deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, there- 
fore, acquiesce in tlie necessity, which denounces our Separation, 
and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind — Enemies in War, 
in Peace Friends. 

We. Theeefore, the Representatives of the United Stales of 
America, in General Congress Assembled; appealing to the Su- 
preme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, 
in the Name and by authority of the good People of these Colonies, 
solemnly publish and declare. That these United Colonies are, and 
of Right ought to be free and independent States; that they are 
Absolved from All Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all 
political connections between them and the State of Great Britain 
is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; and that as Free and Inde- 
pendent States, they have full power to levy War, conclude Peace, 
contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts 
and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for 
the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the pro- 
tection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other 
our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Constitution of the United States 105 

the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to 
indictment, trial, judgment, and punishment, according to law. 

Sec. 4 — 1. The times, places, and manner of holding elections

such meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless

in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections 
at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after 
such reconsideration two-thirds of that House shall agree to pass 
the bill, it shall be sent together with the objections, to the 
other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if 
approved by two-thirds of that House, it shall become a law. But 
in all such cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined by 
yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and 
against the bill shall be entered on the journal of each House re- 
spectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the President within 
ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented

it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, 
in which case it shall not be a law. 

3. Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of 
the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (ex- 
cept on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the Presi- 
dent of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, 
shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be

according to the eighteenth decennial census, issued by Robert W. 
Burgess, Director of the Bureau of the Census, Department of 
Commerce. 

Final figures show that the urban population increased from 
1,368.101 in 1950 to 1,801,921 in 1960, or 31.6 per cent, while the 
rural population increased from 2,693,828 in 1950 to 2,754.234 in 
1960 or an increase of only 2.2 per cent. The final count of the 
Eighteenth Census for the State on April 1, 1960. was 4,556,155 
compared to 4,061,929 in 1950, or an increase of 12.2 per cent. 
Urban residents accounted for 3 9.5 per cent of the State's popula- 
tion in 1960 as compared with 33.7 per cent in 1950. Rural areas 
in 19 60 accounted for 60.5 per cent of the total population. The 
Census Bureau considers as urban areas the incorporated places of 
2,500 or more, or unincorporated places of 2',500 or more located 
outside urbanized areas. The remaining territory is classified as 
rural. 

There were 3 5 incorporated places of 10,0 or more in 19 GO. 
Five of these (Chapel Hill, Jacksonville, Lenoir, Lumberton and 
Roanoke Rapids) reached that size since 1950. Charlotte remains 
the State's largest city with a population of 201,564, followed in 
order by Greensboro with 119,574 and Winston-Salem with 111,135. 

According to final figures of the 1960 census 63 of the counties 
gained in population. Onslow County showed the greatest gain 
witli an increase of 96.7 per cent. Cumberland County placed 
second with an increase of 54.6 per cent while Mecklenburg was 
third with a 38.1 per cent gain. 

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. The population passed 1,000,000 
between 1860 and 1870, 2,000,000 between 1900 and 1910, 3,000,- 
000 between 1920 and 1930, 4,000,000 betwen 1940 and 1950. 
and 4,500,000 between 1950 and 1960. The present population 
represents a density of 86.4 inhabitants per square mile. North 
Carolina's total area in square miles is 52,712. Land area is 49.- 
412 square miles; water area is 3,570 square miles.

NORTH CAROLINA DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM 

FOR 1962 

The Democrats of North Carolina, in convention assembled, 
offer the following Platform of the Democratic Party of North 
Carolina for 1962-63 : 

PREAMBLE 

We commend the Democratic Party to the voters of North 
Carolina on the strength of its principles, its performance, and 
its promise for the future. 

Through more than a century and a half of service, the Demo- 
cratic Party has proven itself capable of mastering new condi- 
tions, new challenges, new opportunities. Confident of the future, 
the Democratic Party has been the creative leader of those pro- 
found changes which have brought our Nation to its present 
greatness and have given America's citizens the highest degree of 
personal freedom, self-government, and economic prosperity that 
the world has ever known. 

For over sixty years, the people of North Carolina have en- 
trusted the government of this State to the Democratic Party, 
and the Democratic Party has been faithful to that trust. The 
immeasurable social and economic progress which this State has 
experienced under Democratic leadership is ample proof of the 
capacity of the Democratic Party to govern well and is the best 
argument for continued public confidence in our Party. 

The Democratic Party recognizes that as great and fortunate 
as our Nation and our State are, there is still much to be done 
if we are to assure to all of our people the full measure of oppor- 
tunity which is their birthright as American citizens. To its 
doing we pledge the best efforts of the Democratic Party of North 
Carolina. 

We also pledge the Democratic Party to strict adherence to con- 
stitutional government, and reaffirm that a frequent recurrence 
to fundamental principles is absolutely necessary to preserve the 
blessings of liberty. 

NATIONAL AFFAIRS 

We heartily approve the vigorous and intelligent leadership 
which President John F. Kennedy is giving our Nation.

AI. 



Eight years of Republican-led confusion, indifference, and un- 
certainty of national purpose tragically weakened the power and 
respect which the United States had gained as the defender of 
freedom under Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. 
Truman. Yet in his brief time, President Kennedy has moved 
confidently to re-establish world-wide respect for the United States 
as a nation determined to seek peace through wise and firm policies 
backed up by unchallengeable strength, a nation ready to share 
its knowledge and resources with other free nations striving to 
better the lot of all their people. 

In domestic affairs, President Kennedy has reasserted the his- 
toric concern of the Democratic Party for the political, social, and 
economic well-being of our whole citizenry. 

North Carolina is justly proud of the high standing which many 
of her citizens enjoy in the cabinet and councils of the National 
Democratic Administration. They are serving their Nation and 
their Party with distinction. 

Our Democratic Senators and Representatives in Congress have 
continued to exert large influence in national legislative affairs. 
We applaud the vigor and determination with which they have 
served their Nation and their State. 



STATE GOVERNMENT 

Executive 

Governor Terry Sanford has already earned his place in the 
proud tradition of Democratic Governors from Charles B. Aycock 
to Luther H. Hodges. His courageous and enlightened efforts to 
better the educational opportunities of our youth, to raise the 
income level of all of our people, to continue the sound adminis- 
tration of our public affairs, and to promote the welfare of all of 
the people of North Carolina have earned the admiration and 
the gratitude of the State. 

Democratic administrative officials, both elective and appointive, 
are strengthening the Democratic habit of sound and progressive 
state and local government. 

Our state employees are rendering loyal and devoted service. 
They are due much of the credit for the efficient and economical 
way in which the duties of state government are performed. To 



Democratic Platform 147 

them we pledge fair treatment and just compensation. The Demo- 
cratic Party share the jealous regard in which state employees 
hold their high reputation for integrity and faithful service, and 
joins them in their determination to maintain that reputation 
unimpaired. 

A notable feature of North Carolina state government is the 
extensive use of part-time boards, commissions, and committees as 
governing and advisory bodies for state agencies and institutions 
and as councils for developing state policy. In this way, more 
than 1,600 public-spirited citizens take a direct, active part in 
the governing of North Carolina. 

Legislative 

Throughout this century, the people have given control of the 
General Assembly to Democratic majorities, and the General 
Assembly in turn has given the people forward-looking laws and 
public policies. 

The 1961 General Assembly, in keeping with that sound legis- 
lative tradition, voted record appropriations for education and 
other public services while balancing the budget, reapportioned 
the state House of Representatives, and enacted other important 
legislation furthering the welfare of the people of our State. It 
also submitted to the voters constitutional amendments to 
strengthen our state court system, to provide for executive suc- 
cession, and to insure periodic reapportionment of the state House 
of Representatives. 

We pledge a continuation of responsible legislative leadership 
and we favor fair representation in the General Assembly. 

Judiciary 

The members of the state judiciary have administered their 
high duties impartially, faithfully, and wisely. 

We commend the 1961 General Assembly for proposing a con- 
stitutional amendment which, if approved by the voters this fall, 
will do much to insure greater uniformity and efficiency in the 
organization and operation of our courts. 

FISCAL AFFAIRS 

The financial policies of the State and the prudent management 
of our financies are among the most noteworthy achievements of 



148 Xninii C.Mtor.iXA Man [ai. 

the Dt'iiioeratic trusteeship of North Carolina government. Through 
successive administrations and legislatures, continuity of policy 
and fiscal integrity have been maintained. 

These accomplishments, together with intelligent debt manage- 
ment practices, have given our state bonds the highest rating 
obtainable and have made possible a reduction of the state debt. 
The state budget has not only been balanced, but all expenditures 
have been fully justified. 

The Democratic Party pledges a continuation of the sound 
management of our public finances which has made North Carolina 
an example envied among the states. 

TAXATION 

The Democratic Party supports a tax structure that equitably 
distributes the costs of those services which it is the duty of 
government to render, while giving proper encouragement to 
economic growth. Just, fair, and firm administration of the tax 
laws is essential to public confidence. 

Through these policies, coupled with efficient governmental 
administration at all levels. North Carolina has retained one of 
the Nation's lowest levels of combined state and local taxation per 
capita, while offering programs of public service which are in 
many areas nationally outstanding. 

We favor continued emphasis on the economical administration 
of government and we oppose any increase in state taxes. 

PUBLIC SCHOOLS 

Devotion to public education has been the chief strength of North 
Carolina throughout this century, for we recognize that education 
is the key to responsible citizenship and to individual and collective 
enlightenment and economic progress. All evidence attests the fact 
that today North Carolina is educating more young people for 
more pursuits and is doing it more eff'ectively than ever before. 

Responding to the bold leadership of Governor Sanford, the 
General Assembly of 1961 provided for a major advance in public 
education. 

To raise our public schools to the level of the best in the United 
States will, however, require steady eff"ort over many years. More- 
over, our low per capita income both proves the necessity of 



Demockatic Platform 149 

providing wider educational opportunities and requires that North 
Carolina devote a larger proportion of her means to education than 
do most states. 

Realizing that the expenditure of more money is not the only 
route to educational improvement, Governor Sanford and the 
Democratic Party, together with educators and interested citizens 
across the State, are working diligently to insure that the curricu- 
lum in every school meets the students' varied needs, to achieve 
excellence in teaching and learning, to keep students in school, 
to reduce the distractions from the fundamental business of edu- 
cation, and to encourage greater local support of schools. 

Through the recently-established industrial education centers, 
training and retraining are being provided to increase the skills 
and earning power of many thousands of our citizens in trades 
and industries. 

The Democratic Party rejoices in the growing popular en- 
thusiasm for education and pledges untiring effort towards its 
advancement. 



HIGHER EDUCATION 

The sixty-two public and private institutions of higher educa- 
tion in North Carolina, now enrolling 75,000 students, have con- 
tributed immeasurably to the progress of our State. Public support 
of our State institutions has grown steadily in recent years in 
recognition of the large return the State receives on that invest- 
ment. 

Yet only one-half of our young people complete high school, 
only one-fifth of them enter college, and less than one-tenth of 
them graduate from college — this in an age when the level of edu- 
cation required for personal advancement and indeed for national 
security is constantly rising. 

The need to encourage and aid more able young people to go to 
college is obvious. But even without unusual efforts of that kind, 
the numbers of people seeking admission to our public and pri- 
vate colleges will probably exceed present enrollments by fifty 
per cent in 1967 and by one hundred per cent in 1975. An in- 
creasing proportion will be attending public colleges. Merely to 
house and to teach so many students will require a major effort on 



150 North Carolina Manual 

the part of the State. And provision for greater numbers of stu- 
dents must be accompanied by constant insistence on excellence in 
all of our public institutions. 

The Democratic Party reaffirms its conviction that it is the duty 
of the State to provide for all of our qualified youth post-high 
school educational opportunities suited to their needs and abilities, 
and pledges its continued support of the University and the public 
colleges to that end. 

PUBLIC WELFARE 

The Democratic Party has a long record of major achievement in 
public welfare at the state and national levels, reflecting its deep 
concern for the well-being of all of the people. We acknowledge 
the obligation of government to provide essential welfare services 
for those needy citizens who are too old, too young, or too dis- 
abled to work; and to provide preventive and rehabilitative serv- 
ices to help people to help themselves become self-supporting. We 
pledge our continued interest in propei'ly administered public wel- 
fare programs essential to the fulfillment of those humanitarian 
obligations. 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS 

The support of successive Democratic Governors and legislatures 
and the guidance of able professional leaders have provided North 
Carolina with nationally distinguished programs of care and re- 
habilitation for our mentally ill and retarded. The Democratic 
Party pledges its continued aid in providing the facilities, the 
trained personnel, and the sound administrative organization 
necessary to maintain progressive mental health programs. 

We advocate the steady improvement of public health services 
throughout the State and the close cooperation of local, state, and 
federal agencies in providing more adequate hospital facilities for 
all of our people. 

CORRECTIONAL PROGRAMS 

North Carolina has made long strides forward in its correctional 
programs under Democratic Governors. 



Democratic Platform 151 

Our prison facilities are being modernized. The administrative 
organization and staffing of our prison system have been strength- 
ened. Programs of custody, treatment, training, and rehabilitation 
have been steadily improved in order that society may be pro- 
tected, and in order that prisoners may be humanely treated and 
usefully employed while in prison and may return to society with 
better prospects for leading useful and law-abiding lives. We en- 
dorse the continuation of these enlightened policies. 

We reaffii'm the value of probation and parole as parts of a 
progressive correctional system, and we favor their fullest 
practicable use. 

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT 

North Carolina's firm commitment to the private enterprise 
system, her plentiful labor supply, her record of good government, 
her transportation system, and her natural advantages combine 
to make this State attractive to industrial development and expan- 
sion. Population growth, declining employment in agriculture, and 
the necessity of raising our personal income level require that we 
exert every effort to create new and profitable jobs for our people. 

Under the dynamic leadership of our Democratic Governors, the 
Department of Conservation and Development and countless busi- 
ness and civic leaders throughout the State have prosecuted an 
effective campaign to encourage the industrial development of 
the State. The results have been highly gratifying. 

A record for industrial growth was set in 1961, with over $279 
million in capital improvements being announced for 503 new and 
expanded manufacturing facilities. And under Democratic leader- 
ship, 1962 should be even better. The State's export trade will 
be promoted. Increased use of the products of our 7,500 manu- 
facturing establishments will be encouraged. More food processing 
plants will be sought in order to make fuller use of the products 
of our land and waters. Mineral and forest production will be 
increased. Further improvements in the commercial fishing indus- 
try are planned. Even greater use of our outstanding public and 
commercial recreational facilities is in prospect. 

Our state ports, the creation of Democratic vision, are showing 
healthy growth in facilities and in business. Not only do the ports 



152 North Carolina Manual 

materially aid North Carolina's extensive industrial and agricul- 
tural production for export, but the seaport operations themselves 
contribute substantially to the State's economy. 

We favor the expansion of public utilities and public service 
companies to serve the growing- needs of our people, and we sup- 
port the regulation of those enterprises in the interest of reason- 
able rates and sound expansion. 

The Democratic Party pledges redoubled emphasis on the broad 
economic development of our State. 

AGRICULTURE 

We recognize North Carolina's historic commitment to agricul- 
ture, the industry most basic to human survival. All efforts to 
develop the economy of our State must keep in view the central 
character of our agricultural economy and the need to preserve 
and strengthen it to the utmost. 

Today North Carolina farms are more productive than ever 
before. But modern farming methods make this possible with 
fewer workers: one-eighth of the State's labor force is in agri- 
culture today, contrasted with one-quarter only a decade ago. 
And for those who stay on the farm, the return is too often too 
meager. 

We must maintain a well-balanced economy and we must halt 
the depopulation of our farms. To do these things we must make 
farming more profitable to large numbers of people and use the 
products of the farm as the basis of a major segment of our 
expanding industry. 

The Democratic Party pledges its firm support for: 

1. Agricultural research to advance production and marketing 
efficiency, particularly in areas such as food production where we 
have vast but scarcely realized advantages in soil, climate and 
geography. 

2. Intensified efforts in the development of production and 
marketing organizations and facilities which will help the farmer, 
especially the small farmer, to grow produce of high quality in 
large quantity and move it promptly and profitably into the chan- 
nels of commerce. 

3. The development of food processing and packaging industries 
which will increase the demand for farm output, provide employ- 



Democeatic Platform 153 

ment for many people, and keep in North Carolina a larger share 
of the profits which others now reap from our resources and our 
labor. 

4. The Rural Electrification Administration and the Rural 
Telephone Program, which have added immeasurably to rural 
living and productivity. 

The return of the national administration to the control of 
the Democratic Party, ever the faithful friend of agriculture, has 
already given the farmer fresh hope. 

NATURAL RESOURCES 

Acknowledging that this generation is but the temporary trustee 
of the bounty of land and water with which North Carolina is 
blessed, we pledge our Party's continued support of programs for 
the conservation and wise use of our soil, our water resources, 
and our natural recreational advantages, in order that succeeding 
generations may derive pleasure and profit from them. 

LABOR 

The Democratic Party of North Carolina is deeply conscious 
of the important role of the half-million North Carolinians em- 
ployed in manufacturing and of the hundreds of thousands engaged 
in other industrial and commercial pursuits. The adoption of a 
state minimum wage law in 1959 and its broadening in 1961 by 
Democratic General Assemblies are ample evidence of our concern 
for the well-being of the wage earner. Fifteen industrial educa- 
tion centers throughout the state are providing training which 
enables many thousands of citizens to acquire or improve occupa- 
tional skills and so to increase their earnings. 

We pledge our support for humane labor laws, safe and healthful 
working conditions, fair compensation for the workers in industry. 
and laws guaranteeing employees the right to work and employers 
the right to conduct their business as free citizens. 

HIGHWAYS 

North Carolina has long had the largest state system of roads 
in the Nation. Under Democratic guidance, 71,000 miles of roads 
and streets have been built, maintained and improved. Included 



154 Noinii Cai!oi,i.\a Mantai, 

are 11,000 miles of Primary Highways, 3,000 miles of municipal 
roads and highways, and 57,000 miles of Secondary Rural Roads. 

This vast network of highways and roads contributes greatly 
to the progress of the State in industry, agriculture, education and 
recreation. Under Democratic Administrations, the State has con- 
structed direct routes connecting county seats and a system of 
through highways for the expeditious and safe flow of tourist 
traffic and commerce, and has hard-surfaced a system of farm- 
to-market roads throughout the State. Additional paving is being 
programmed and completed annually. 

The Democratic Party pledges continued improvement and ex- 
pansion of the existing system of good roads and highways in 
North Carolina through the fair distribution of construction and 
maintenance funds. 

HIGHWAY SAFETY 

Under Democratic Administrations, North Carolina has forged a 
national reputation for the high quality of its highway safety pro- 
gram, producing a nationally-acclaimed Highway Patrol, a driver 
licensing program which has been a model for other states, and an 
award-winning high school driver education program. 

The Democratic Party pledges its continued interest in pro- 
tecting citizens from death and injury on the highways. 

CULTURAL AFFAIRS 

Conscious of the needs of man's spirit, our State has established 
a museum of art, assisted a symphony orchestra, aided historical 
dramas, sponsored the restoration of historic sites and the celebra- 
tion of great events past, and in other ways has sought to foster 
an appreciation of North Carolina's cultural inheritance and her 
creative promise. We favor the continuation of these worthy 
undertakings. 

CONCLUSION 

Committed by history and by conviction to the preservation 
of the liberties and the broadening of the opportunities of the 
individual, the Democratic Party reaffirms these as the worthiest 



DEMOrUATIC Pr.ATFORAr 155 

purposes of any party and of any government. Drawn from the 
great body of North Carolinians and nurtured in love of this State, 
the Democratic Party reasserts its faith in the greatness of North 
Carolina in heritage and in destiny. Grateful to the voters of North 
Carolina for having given into our keeping the powers of state 
government for these six decades, and conscious of the duty of 
continuously justifying the people's faith by the responsible exe- 
cution of their trust, we pledge the Democratic Party to the 
furtherance of those principles and policies which will enable all 
of the people of North Carolina to realize in increasing measure 
their own highest aspirations.

ARTICLE II 
COUNTY ORGANIZATION 

Section 1. County Executive Committee: 

The Chairman and the Vice Chairman of the several precinct 
committees, the immediate past chairman of the County Executive 
Committee and the President of the duly organized County Young 



T***^ NoKTTi Carolina Manual 

Democratic Club within the County shall compose the County 
Executive Committee, which shall meet on the same day as the 
county convention first held in each election year, the meeting to be 
held either before oi- after the convention at an hour and place to 
be designated in the call therefor. At said meeting a chairman of 
said county executive committee shall be elected. Immediately 
after the election of the chairman, the committee shall elect one 
or more, but not exceeding three, vice chairmen, a secretary and a 
treasurer. If more than one vice chairman shall be elected the 
order of their succession shall be designated by title, e.g., first vice 
chairman, second vice chairman, third vice chairman. Either the 
chairman or the first vice chairman shall be a woman, and the 
other shall be a man. The chairman, vice chairman or vice chair- 
men, secretary and treasurer need not be members of the County 
Executive Committee, but all of said officers shall be ex-officio 
members of the committee, with the power to vote; however, at 
any organizational meeting of said County Executive Committee 
said ex-officio members shall not have the power to vote. Should 
any precinct official be elected to any county organizational office 
he automatically vacates his precinct office. 

If for any reason there should occur any vacancy in the chair- 
manship of the County Executive Committee, by death, resignation, 
or removal, or if such chairman should be incapacitated, then 
upon a written notice to such chairman signed by the remaining 
officers of the County Executive Committee, the vice chairman 
or vice chairmen, in their order of succession, and thereafter the 
secretary, shall, in such order of succession, be vested with 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. 

When the County Executive Committee is not in session, the 
officers of the County Executive Committee, presided over by the 
Chairman, shall act in the place of the County Executive Com- 
mittee on all matters; unless this plan of organization states that

NORTH CAROLINA REPUBLICAN STATE 
PLATFORM 1962 

The strength of North Carolina is the preservation of the great- 
est natural i-esource we possess — the God given ability of human 
and individual resourcefulness. The catalyst for preservation and 
growth of individual resourcefulness is free enterprise, and it is 
the duty of the State Government of North Carolina to preserve, 
protect, and encourage orderly individualism in our society . 

There are two methods by which our State Government can 
create a climate conducive to free enterprise and eternal liberty — 
First, by an adherence to the mandate of our Constitution for a 
frequent recurrence to fundamental principles; and, secondly, by 
a constant and critical re-evaluation of programs and policies 
enacted by the General Assembly of North Carolina. 

To the end of equal protection of life and liberty for all citizens 
of North Carolina with opportunity for individual enterprise, we, 
the Republican Party of North Carolina, do dedicate ourselves 
and consecrate our energies to implementing these, our beliefs and 
objectives. 

National Affairs 

We, the Republican Party, believe that government exists for 
the purpose of creating a climate conducive to private enterprise. 
The Kennedy Administration has made the people aware of the 
philosophy of the Democratic Party which is to create and parcel 
out the economy. In less than a year and one-half the Democrat 
Administration has created more than sixteen new give-away pro- 
grams for the people of our Country. Already, the President has 
requested power to raise the national debt limit which is already at 
a staggering $296,000,000,000.00. We condemn deficit spending as 
an abuse and disregard of the public trust we hold for future 
generations of Americans. 

We commend the courageous battle so ably led by Republican 
Congi-essional leaders to halt the Democrat Party march toward 
a socialized state. Significantly enough, the Republican leadership 
has been joined on many occasions by southern Democrats who 
are finding the Kennedy Administration proposals gastronomically 
indigestible. 

200 



Republican Platform 201 

We commend the courageous ability, integrity, and sincerity 
of that consistent advocate of sound principles of good govern- 
ment, Congressman Charles Raper Jonas — unqualifiedly and with- 
out reservation — we enthusiastically endorse and command his 
outstanding record. 

We urge the re-election of Congressman Jonas and the election 
of other Republicans to Congress to promulgate the principles of 
sound government envisioned by President Abraham Lincoln and 
nurtured by the integrity of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. 

State Affairs 

North Carolina possesses potential unexcelled by any of the other 
49 States. That potential is the ability of our citizens. This State 
has been unable to utilize its potential because of the one-party 
system of government exhibited by the Democrat Party in the last 
60 years. When any political party is too long in power, it be- 
comes primarily interested in its own perpetuation without pri- 
mary regard to the best interest of the people. 

We defy the Democrat Party to deny the proposition that an 
active two-party system of government is in the best interest of 
the State of North Carolina. As illustration and evidence of the 
need for a two-party system of government, we present our stand- 
ards for good government. 

Public Education 

With a firm conviction that an excellent educational system is 
the first prerequisite for representative government, and with the 
belief that only educated citizens can preserve the liberties won 
for them at great cost by their forefathers, the Republican Party 
in North Carolina dedicates itself to the position that education 
is the most important function of State and Local Government 
in a free society. 

We praise the dedication our teachers have shown under adverse 
circumstances. For too long our educational program has been 
shackled by the chains of a one-party system of government con- 
trolled by the Democrat Party. North Carolina's public education 
program ranks 45th in the Nation — Only 20% of North Carolina's 
citizens over 25 years of age have a high school education. 



202 XiiiMi! Cauoi.i.na Manual 

A comparison of the educational history of Republican States 
with that of Democrat States dui'injr the last 60 years points to the 
undeniable fact that Republican States lead the Nation in the 
field of education, while Democrat States rank near the bottom 
in every evaluation of school standards. We pledge ourselves to 
the task of elevating North Carolina from the low educational 
position she has occupied during 60 years of Democrat rule. 

The Republican Party favors a program of incentives and 
teacher selection to attract and hold superior teachers. Instruc- 
tors should be highly trained for the areas in which they teach. 
Teachers must be given time to teach and pupils time in which 
to learn. We support special programs for the exceptionally 
talented and for the handicapped. We favor more emphasis on 
physical fitness in athletic programs, and less attention to 
spectator sports. 

We believe that students must attend classes regularly. To 
guarantee maximum attendance by all children of school age, we 
favor laws to provide at least one attendance counselor for each 
of the administrative school units of North Carolina. Because the 
Democrat Party has been unwilling to accept the responsibility 
for amending the archaic and antiquated truancy laws, there are 
approximately 75,000 boys and girls absent from the class rooms 
each day our public schools are open. 

The Republican Party is committed to the principle that each 
generation should furnish adequate support for the training of 
its youth. It is opposed to programs of deficit finance, which bind 
future generations to relieve the present of its responsibilities. 
We pledge ourselves to efficient administration, maximum use of 
school facilities, and the elimination of frills or waste in our 
educational system. We promise constant scrutiny of the entire 
educational system to the end that essentials be held in focus and 
the goal of an educated citizenry be realized. 

Local Control of Education 

The Republican Party believes firmly that education by Con- 
stitution, tradition, and conviction is a responsibility of parents, 
communities, and separate States. We are inexorably opposed to 
Federal aid, or to any other program designed to centralize control 
of our schools in some bureaucracy far removed from the area 
where the student and parent live. 



Republican Pi.atkok.m 203 

We aie opposed to the present methods of selecting school boards 
in North Carolina. We favor the selection of all educational 
boards simultaneously in biennial, non-partisan elections by pop- 
ular vote of the people where the school board is to serve. 

We believe that these boards should serve on a rotational basis, 
so as to guarantee maximum continuity. We condemn the Demo- 
crat Party for refusing to allows the people to elect their own 
school boards. The people of North Carolina are required to pay 
the cost of public education — they are entitled to participate in 
the selection of the school boards. 

Higher Education 

The Republican Party favors continued expansion of our sys- 
tem of higher education in keeping with the steady increase of 
population and growing complexity of modern society. We favor 
careful screening of applicants and high standards of performance 
by those enrolled at such schools. 

We favor an expansion of the regional Industrial Training Cen- 
ter Program. We approve the idea of community colleges and 
believe that in the near future, a branch of the university should 
be established somewhere in Western North Carolina. We feel 
that, in any expansion of our system of higher education, the 
interests of the State's excellent private colleges should be given 
careful consideration. 

The Republican Party feels that justice demands that the govern- 
ing boards of all institutions of higher education be selected on a 
non-partisan basis. 

Election Laws 

The Constitution of the State of North Carolina, in Article I, 
Section 10, very properly declares, "all elections ought to be 
free." This is the shortest and most ignored provision in the 
North Carolina Constitution. The election laws are drawn to give 
maximum advantage to the Democrat Party. It is administered 
at every level by boards controlled by the Democrat Party, and 
such control is not considered to be a Judicial function; but rathei- 
a part of the partisan apparatus of the party. Even our Courts 
have been consistently unwilling to limit the abuses of power made 
possible under this setup. 



204 NoKTH Carolina Manual 

These evils have become a part of the system and only a radical 
revision of our election laws can guarantee to the people of our 
State really free elections. We the Republican Party, advocate: 

1. The transfer of the control of elections from the Democrat 
Party, where it now resides, to a system of non-partisan boards 
who will exercise a generally judicial function and which will be 
removed as far as possible from partisan control. This is ab- 
solutely necessary on both the State and County level, and the pre- 
cinct election officials should be appointed with the understanding 
that they represent the State of North Carolina and not any 
political party. 

2. The conduct of elections should be drastically changed by 
removing the so-called markers who now infest the polls at most 
polling places in our State and who perform no proper or useful 
function; but who, on the other hand, merely act as solicitors on 
behalf of particular political parties, and who often intimidate 
voters, and whose presence make fraud more possible and easier 
to perpetuate. Hundreds of polling places in North Carolina do 
not even now conform to the Statutory requirements. 

The absentee ballot should be abolished. It is now openly used 
as an instrument of fraud. Such use is not occasional, but is 
widespread and is cynically admitted on the floors of our Legisla- 
ture. It has been abolished in our Primaries, where the Demo- 
crat Party is fond of boasting the real decision is made, but is 
deliberately retained in the General Election for the avowed pur- 
pose of making certain that the Republicans are defeated by what- 
ever means may be required; or to put it another way. "By hook 
or by crook". 

3. The entire State should have a new registration and the 
registration books should be carefully purged to eliminate the 
thousands of voters who now cast their ballots from the grave- 
yard. A modernized system of registration should be adopted 
and the registration books should be kept current. 

4. The pretense that party registration can or should govern 
the free exercise of any voter's honest choice at election time, 
should be specifically disavowed by Statutory enactment and the 
requirements now written in the election laws, which require 
voters to take pledges of party loyalty undertaking to bind their 
future votes as a prerequisite for changing party affiliation or 



Republican Platfokii 205 

running' for office, should be repealed. Voting in Primaries should 
be governed by party registration, but party affiliation should be 
determined by a mere declaration of intent. 

If these things are done, we will have the genuinely free elec- 
tions in North Carolina that are supposed to be guaranteed by 
our Constitution. Then our election procedures may be expected to 
produce truly Democratic government rather than the continu- 
ation of a one-party system of government on the basis of in- 
timidation, coercion, and fraud. 

Realignment of Senatorial Districts 

The Constitution of North Carolina contains a clear and un- 
equivocal mandate that the State Senatorial Districts must be 
redivided after every Federal census. This census is taken each 
ten years. Yet, the Democrat Party has failed and refused to 
comply with this mandate to the end that citizens in this State 
are denied the right to full and equal voting privileges. Each of 
the 50 State Senators should represent as nearly as may be 
possible an equal number of people — yet in the 29th District, a 
Senator represents 45,000 people; while a Senator in the 20th 
District represents 272,000. 

We, the Republicans, condemn the opposition party for violation 
of this Constitutional requirement; and we believe the Republican 
Legislators who unanimously supported equal representation by 
introducing such legislation have followed the equitable and Con- 
stitutional course of action. 

Congressional Redistricting 

The General Assembly of 1961 with the approval of the Gov- 
ernor and over the protest of Republican Legislators redistrieted 
the U. S. Congressional Districts without consideration for the 
people, but with the one purpose of defeating the lone Republican 
Congressman, Charles Raper -Jonas. No political party can per- 
petuate itself by anxious and arbitrary methods of redistrictirig 
which are designed to desecrate and destroy the opposition. We 
believe that political parties are servants of the people; while 
on the other hand, the Democrats in office have demonstrated th;ir 
belief by redistricting the legislature that people are the servants 
of their political party.

Taxation 

After 60 years of rule, the Democrat Party must take credit foi' 
the fact, that per capita income in North Carolina is one of the 
lowest of all 50 States; and at the same time our taxation is one 
of the highest. 

Under Governor Sanford's leadership, the Democrat Party im- 
posed the "Food Tax" upon the people of our State over the voiced 
objection of the Republican Legislators. The Governor, in public, 
announced in February, 1961, that 500,000 North Carolinians 
were unable to provide food for themselves and he advocated 
participation in the Federal Food Surplus Act. In less than one 
week, the Governor began to press for passage of the "Food Tax". 
This is an illogical and unfair burden upon the people least able 
to pay. We doubt the wisdom of imposing a tax which can deprive 
certain groups of the basic necessities of life regardless of the 
use for which the taxation is imposed. The results of tax legis- 
lation passed by the Democrat controlled Legislature clearly in- 
dicates an oppressive burden upon the citizens of our State, while 
a few politically favored special interest groups have unfair 
advantages. 

North Carolina's tax rate is among the highest in the Union — 
a record not designed to be looked upon with pride. If private 
enterprise and individual ingenuity are to prosper and thrive in 
this State, it is imperative that we have and we do advocate a 
thorough revision of the tax structure without regard to special 
interest groups. 



Efficiency in State Administration 

The State Government is now North Carolina's biggest business 
with an expenditure of over $1,500,000,000.00 bi-annually for oper- 
ations. If the operational budget grows in the next bi-annum at the 
same average rate that it has since the Democrat Party came into 
power, it will be necessary to find new taxes in the amount of 
.$150,000,000.00 over and above the taxation now imposed. The 
State of North Carolina now employs over 70,000 persons; it is 
absolutely necessary and imperative that North Carolina have 
personnel policies commensurate with its responsibilities as an 
employer. 



Republican Platform 209 

The Republican Party advocates effective government manage- 
ment in North Carolina designed to bring about important results 
for our State. Among the benefits of this effective government 
management are: 

1. Better service and more results from each tax dollar. 

2. Government operations would be simplified and I'esponsibility 
pin-pointed. 

3. Governmental controls which reach into every facet of our 
personal and business life could be held to a minimum allowing 
private enterprise to have a freer operation under clearly defined 
rules and regulations. 

4. The Governor of our State would become an Executive in the 
truest sense — thus eliminating the use of personal influence or 
appointments, indirect controls, and the use of the Executive 
Budget Act as a means of accomplishing some semblance of 
administration. 

We believe that the tools necessary to accomplish the Republican 
objective of efficient administration of government are as follows: 

1. Authorization by the Legislature to study each individual 
agency of the State with the prime objective of consolidating many 
of the approximately 170 existing agencies. 

2. Establishment of a Civil Service System for State employees. 

3. Creation of veto power for the Governor of our State — 
North Carolina is the only State which does not allow the Gover- 
nor such power. 

4. Appoint a budgetary overseer responsible only to the General 
Assembly whose duties would be similar to the Comptroller Gen- 
eral of the United States. 

5. Encouragement of local autonomy of Counties and Munic- 
ipalities of this State in matters which are purely of local concern. 

6. Legislation setting up standing legislative committees to 
make a continued study of State Agencies with responsibility to 
make recommendations for more efficiency. 

State Employees 

The Republican Party commends the excellent service of State 
Employees who have done their jobs despite the undue burden 
of political pressure exerted by the Democrat Party. It has been and 
is the desire to the Republican Party to enhance the position and 



lilO XoKiii Cauoi.i.na iVIa.miai, 

security of State Employees. Republicans in the 19G1 General 
Assembly sponsored and supported legislation to that end ; the 
Democrats in Legislature blocked this legislation. A politically 
free Civil Service System would eliminate political servitude as it 
now exists and would allow State Employees to concentrate upon 
the productive work of their office. 

Graft and Corruption 

The recent public announcement of graft and corruption in the 
administration of our State government is of great concern to 
the Republican Party. The expose points unerringly to the con- 
clusion that after 60 years of power, any political organization 
tsnds to become lethargic and thus susceptible to this very 
situation. 

The recent dismissal of a prominent employee of the State 
Highway Department and resulting indictments involving a 
prominent politician show that all is not well in the administration 
of state government. North Carolina needs a new broom wielded 
by men and women who don't have to sweep any mud under 
the rug. 

After 60 years of control by the Democrat Party, it is time for 
an intensive audit of State practices and policies. 

Roads and Highways 

Originally, the State Highway Commission was set up on a 
non-partisan basis and North Carolina's road system became one 
of the best. Recently, however, the opposition has made this 
Commission an integral part of its own political organization. 
We condemn the Democrat practice of replacing virtually every 
member of the Highway Commission each four years as a reward 
for party loyalty. We maintain that this constant reshuffling of 
appointed personnel effectively prevents a long-range, coordinated 
program of highway construction and maintenance. The Re- 
publican Party advocates and insists upon non-partisan Road 
Commissioners and the hiring of personnel for our road construc- 
tion and maintenance based upon qualification instead of political 
loyalty.

Highway Safety 

The Republican Party has long advocated a sensible program of 
strict law enforcement in North Carolina, especially as it pertains 
to our roads and highways. The inadequacy of the highway safety 
program is sadly and clearly shown by the fact that each year 
moi'e than 1200 persons die on the roads of this State. We have 
one of the largest fatality rates in the entire Country. Habitual 
speeders, drunk drivers, and racers have no right to the use of 
our highways. We believe that we must teach traffic violators 
by strengthened enforcement laws and vigorous prosecution thereof 
that driving on our highways is a privilege and not an inherent 
right. 

Judiciary 

The administration of Justice in North Carolina has needed 
sensible modernization for many years. Were it not for the fact 
that the court improvement legislation received the unanimous 
support and vote of all Republicans in the 1961 General Assembly, 
no legislation affecting improvement of the Judiciary would have 
been passed. These Republicans have kept faith with the people 
of North Carolina by supporting legislation creating the machinery 
for uniformity in the lower court system, up-dating the procedural 
laws and expediting the administration of Justice. The Democrats 
have shovv^ed bad faith by opposing Republican sponsored legisla- 
tion designed to allow open election of Judges by the District 
where they are to serve. The Republican Party will continue to 
advocate open and uninhibited election of Judges in this State by 
the people in the district where the Judge is to serve. 

Liquor Control 

The Republican Party sincerely believes that the will of the 
majority should control the economic, social, and moral standard 
of our State. It is with this basic belief in our philosophy that 
we re-affirm our stand and advocate a Statewide referendum with 
regard to the sale of alcoholic beverages. 

Banking 

Modern economy is facilitated by the transfer of money through 
the use of checks. One draw-back to the economy is the fact that 
some North Carolina banks do not cash checks at par. We advo- 
cate the elimination of non-par checks. 



212 North Cabomxa Manual 

Agriculture 

A healthy agricultural economy is necessary to the realization 
of a healthy economy throughout this entire State. The Republican 
Party admonishes the opposition to consider the plight of the 
farmer after 60 years under the Democrat Party. Today, farm 
income is only 43 % of the average of non-farm incomes — $965.00 
as compared to $2,216.00; and in North Carolina, the average 
farmer earns less than one-half as the average farmer in the 
rest of our Nation. Can the Democrats be proud of this record? 

From the very inception of this State, farming has been a noble 
part of the proud heritage and record of North Carolina. It is 
imperative that we render to the occupation of farming a token 
in the way of progressive legislation to assist the farmer in this, 
its greatest hour of need. We advocate more technical assistance 
to the farming industry in order to achieve a better balanced 
production and more encouragement of co-operative type in lieu 
of State owned marketing centers. 

Conservation and Development 

We commend the Democrat Party for its improvement in attitude 
toward bringing industry to North Carolina. We are bringing 
industry to this State, but our percentage rate of growth is the 
lowest in the South. In order to make our State more attractive 
to new industry, we advocate encouragement of extension of port 
facilities by private enterprise, reorganization of the corporate 
tax structure, and remodeling of the antiquated laws under which 
the Utilities Commission operates, so that equitable rates for 
utilities are imposed. We believe that, while encouragement of new 
industry is essential, we must constantly seek to encourage and 
foster the support and growth of established industry in this 
State. 

Labor 

The Republican Party commends the 1961 General Assembly of 
North Carolina for extending minimum wage coverage to approxi- 
mately 20,000 more laboring men and women in this State. We 
take pride in knowing that Republicans in the General Assembly 
were largely responsible for passage of this law. Without the 
support of the Republicans, the law was doomed to defeat at the 
hands of the Democrat Party. 



Republican Platform 213 

We are not satisfied! Even now, the average per capita income 
for laborers in North Carolina is one of the lowest in the Nation. 
Our average unemployment compensation is the lowest in the 
Nation. The Republican Party is committed to the belief that 
laboring men and women are entitled to fruits of the ability and 
effort they give to their work, and we earnestly request that the 
Democrat Party consider a change in its attitude which has placed 
our laboring people in bondage to low incomes during the 60-year 
Democrat reign. 



Internal Water Resources 

The Republican Party of North Carolina believes the need for 
conserving water is of such importance that water resources 
development should be put on a par with agricultural and indus- 
trial development. While water problems in the State have not yet 
reached serious proportions, there are some developing areas where 
total water demands soon may exceed available supplies; and 
adequate water quality shortly may pose serious problems for the 
entire State. Thus, while there is still time to do so, the Re- 
publican Party of North Carolina advocates that increased em- 
phasis be placed on fully developing the water resources of the 
State to meet foreseeable State demands for decades to come. We 
must immediately get down to the task of systematic planning for 
the best use of the State's water resources in an orderly and 
rational way. 



Home Rule 

Te Republican Party is alarmed by the tendency of centralization 
of government powers in Raleigh and Washington. We believe this 
tendency is diametrically opposed to the best interest of individual 
citizens. As an example, more than one-half of the legislation 
enacted by the 1961 General Assembly was of purely local con- 
cern without Statewide ramifications. We advocate home rule and 
the return to Counties and Municipalities those responsibilities 
for government which are purely of local significance and of no 
concern to the State as a whole.

Constitutional Reform 



An integral part of responsible government is a constant vigil 
and effort to remove archaic road blocks, in the form of antiquated 
laws, which impede the social, economic and moral progress of that 
government. 

A prime example of the lethargic attitude which has enveloped 
Democrat officials during 60 years in power is their neglect to 
revise the State Constitution. Our Constitution was adopted in 
1868. Thirty-two States have adopted new Constitutions since our 
own was ratified. 

A State Constitution is the framework and foundation upon 
which government determines its responsibility, authority and 
limitation. In its most desired form, a State Constitution stands 
tall, is concise, and inspires confidence. The North Carolina 
Constitution is bent and tattered not only by time alone, but because 
of the undue and oppressive weight of multifarious amendments. 
The Eepublican Party advocates the call of a Constitutional Con- 
vention in the best interest of all the people of North Carolina. 



Public Health 

The Republican Party, knowing that sound physical and mental 
health is of basic importance to the life and happiness of the 
people, and recognizing the responsibility and obligation of the 
State Government to safeguard the public health in areas beyond 
the power of the individual citizen, pledges itself to discharge this 
obligation and responsibility with maximum efficiency, and mini- 
mum interference with the liberties of the people, and to spend 
the people's money with as much care as if it were all our own. 

We pledge our best eff'orts to making North Carolina's health 
environment the safest in which to live, work, and play. 

More specifically, we pledge ourselves to give immediate atten- 
tion to solving the following important problems: 

1. Pollution of water, soil, and air. Growing population and 
industrial expansion has aggravated already existing widespread 
pollution of streams and water supplies by human and industrial 
wastes. Over-loaded and out-moded sewage disposal facilities, 
and inadequate water purification facilities, in many localities 
have created in many areas situations of great and increasing 



Republican Platform 215 

danger to the health of the people. Immediate correction of these 
conditions, with intelligence and imagination, is imperative. A 
far-seeing, co-ordinated, state-wide plan, in cooperation with an- 
alogous projects in neighboring States, needs to be developed and 
carried out without delay, to insure purity of surface and ground 
water, and the water in our water recreation areas. 

2. Radiation fallout protection. The State shall assume its 
proper responsibility for protecting the people from radioactive 
fallout, by developing standard, efficient, and practical shelters, 
teaching the people the basic essentials of radiation protection, 
and by encouraging them to do the things needed. 

3. Programs for making more and better use of the skills of 
senior citizens. 

4. More careful long-range planning to improve and maintain 
sanitary conditions in the fringe areas around cities and towns, 
particularly the faster growing ones. 

5. Health needs of our growing population demand more and 
better efforts to induce more young people to prepare themselves 
for health service careers. 

6. We advocate passage of enabling legislation to implement 
the Kerr-Mills Act for medical care to the needy aged people. 

Public Welfare 

We recognize that in every economy there is a group of citizens 
who are unable to provide for themselves. It is the responsibility 
of our State and Local Government to care for those so handi- 
capped by unfortunate circumstances. It cannot be denied, how- 
ever, that under present procedure there is too much opportunity 
for abuse in qualifying for welfare assistance. It is imperative 
that more clearly defined limits and restrictions be placed upon 
recipients of welfare assistance to the end that cases of necessity 
are adequately cared for and cases of abuse are immediately 
checked and discontinued. 

Under the Democrat Administration, welfare payments to in- 
dividuals in this State are the lowest of any of the 50 States. 
The result has been too little for too many recipients. The Re- 
publican Party believes that stricter enforcement of requirements 
for participation in public welfare with more adequate assistance 
to those entitled to receive is essential. 



216 North Caeolina Manual 

The Republican Party advocates more exacting legislation re- 
quiring irresponsible parents to support their minor childx-en and 
requiring- adult children of sufficient income to maintain and sup- 
port their needy parents. Enforcement of these laws would relieve 
taxpayers of this unwarranted burden. 

Commercial Fisheries — Salt Water Resources 

As this division of the North Carolina Department of Con- 
servation and Development has functioned in the past, little con- 
structive emphasis has been placed upon either of the fundamental 
functions of conservation or development of North Carolina 
fishery resources. This lack of emphasis and resulting failure in 
its primary purposes is partly attributable to unnecessary em- 
phasis on the activities of tax collection and law enforcement. 

Under the control of the Democrat Party, the operation of the 
Commercial Fisheries Division of the North Carolina Department 
of Conservation and Development, as presently conducted, has be- 
come a matter of collecting taxes (from the fishing industry) with 
which to pay for law enforcement (the tax collectors, generally, 
are also law enforcement officers). Many of the laws enforced are 
merely laws levying taxes (or licenses). Thus, this agency is, in 
effect, a "political perpetual motion machine," accomplishing only 
its own continuation. 

The Republican Party advocates the assumption by the Depart- 
ment of Revenue of tax collecting functions of the Commercial 
Fisheries Division which is presently handled by the Department 
of Conservation and the North Carolina Department of Conserva- 
tion and Development. 

Boats are the machinery used by fishermen to make their living. 
For the reason that the farmer's plow is not taxed, the fisherman's 
boat should not be taxed by special licenses. 

We further deem it necessary that the law enforcement func- 
tions of the Commercial Fisheries Division of the North Carolina 
Department of Conservation and Development be assumed by a 
duly constituted law enforcement agency of the State, the North 
Carolina Waterway Patrol. The North Carolina Republican Party 
believes that, in this way, more effective and constructive con- 
servation practices can be established and that valuable contri- 
butions to the economies of the coastal areas of North Carolina can 



Republicax Platform 217 

be made. We, furthermore, believe that these accomplishments 
will inure to the general benefit of all North Carolinians. 

Once relieved of these tv^^o functions mentioned above, the Com- 
mercial Fisheries Division of the North Carolina Department of 
Conservation and Development should direct its efforts toward 
the proper objectives of conservation of basic brood stocks of the 
State's fishery resources and the development of the fishing and 
related industries. 

State Ports 

The North Carolina Republican Party, believing as it does, in 
free and competitive enterprise advocates with respect to the 
operation of the North Carolina Port facilities at Morehead City 
and Wilmington: 

1. That these facilities be self-supporting and not a perpetual 
burden upon the citizens of the State. 

2. That capital improvements at these ports be made whenever 
and to the extent such investment can be justified by the reasonably 
expected increased net earnings to be developed thereby. 

Water Ways 

The North Carolina Republican Party is aware of the recent 
large increase in pleasure boating upon our coastal waters and 
the large numbers of small boats now using these facilities. It 
believes this development should be encouraged. Therefore, the 
following policies are advocated: 

1. That the State inaugurate a politically free Waterways 
Patrol to promote safe boating practices and to provide assistance 
and protection to the pleasure boating public. 

2. That the North Carolina Highway Department recognize 
this development of pleasure boating and, in the mutual interest 
of highway traflfic and water borne traflfic, it adopt a policy of 
increasing the clearances under all fixed and draw-span bridges 
over coastal waterways. 

Rights of Citizenship 

Under the proper interpretation of the philosophy of government 
that our forefathers dreamed of and we seek to bring into realiza- 
tion, we, the Republican Party, believe it to be fundamentally true 



218 NouTii Cakoi.ixa Manual 

that the will of the majority ought to prevail. In the proper 
exercise of that will, however, the proper regard must be used to 
safeguard the rights of minorities — whose members are entitled 
to equal and full citizenship of this State. The actions of the 
majority party officials give tangible evidence of their unwilling- 
ness to recognize rights of any one or any groups except them- 
selves. 

We, the Republican Party of North Carolina, pledge ourselves 
to encouragement of participation of all rights and responsibility 
of full citizenship by all the citizens of North Carolina, and we 
demand in the interest of Justice representation on all State 
Boards, Commissions, Agencies, and Institutions. 

Conclusion 

The future of our State is bright for the people are realizing 
the advantages and necessity of a healthy two-party system of 
government. The shackles and heavy yoke of oppressive and 
lethargic one-party system are rapidly being disregarded in North 
Carolina. Control of the government is being returned to the 
people where it rightly should and will be with the emergence of 
a healthy, competitive, and active two-party system of government. 
Your vote for Republican candidates, dedicated to these our prin- 
ciples of good government, will speed the advent of government by 
the people, of the people, and for the people.
