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 
state adopted the United States Constitution, being the twelfth 
state to enter the Federal Union. North Carolina, in 1788, had 



4 North Carolina Manual 

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- 
cial districts composed of certain contiguous counties, and this 
practice of expanding the districts has continued from five districts 
in 1806 until now there are thirty districts. 



The State 5 

When North Carolina adopted 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. 

AGRICrLTTJRE 

North Carolina continues to keep pace with other states of the 
nation through its achievements in the field of agricultural pro- 
duction. During each of the past several years, new records in 
per-acre yields of field crops have been established. The year 1964 
was no exception. The North Carolina tobacco crop in 19 64 pro- 
duced a yield per acre of 2,281 pounds to surpass by 27 5 pounds 
the previous record of 2,006 pounds per acre harvested in 1963. 
Despite a reduction of 10 percent in the acreage allotted to pro- 
duction of tobacco for 1964, the total leaf harvest of 971 million 
pounds exceeded the 19 63 production by almost three percent. 

A record yield of 59 bushels of corn per acre in 1964 exceeded 
the previous record by three bushels per acre, and production of 
almost 83 million bushels of grain was 4 million bushels above, 
the 19 63 production although there was a 2 percent acreage de- 
cline. 

Acreage utlized for production of soybeans continues to in- 
crease, and the 1964 yield of 25 bushels per acre was a bushel 
above the previous record established in 19 62. Total production 
of almost 16 million bushels of soybeans in 1964 exceeded 1963 
production by 1.7 million bushels. 



6 North Carolina Manual 

New record high yields were also established in 19 64 for pea- 
nuts, sorghum grains, sweet potatoes, oats, and hay. Near record 
yields per acre were realized for wheat, barley, and rye. 

Although smaller unit prices were received for most field crops, 
the value of $914 million placed on crop production in 19 64 was 
the highest of record for thte State. It exceeded the 1963 total 
by more than $28 million. 

Cash receipts from marketings of agricultural commodities in 
19 64 are not yet available, but it is evident that receipts from 
sales of crops in 1964 exceeded the previous record established 
in 19 63 by several million dollars. 

Production of livestock and livestock products in 1964 con- 
tinued at comparatively high levels, and receipts from market- 
ings of these items should equal or exceed the 196 3 total of $345 
million. 

Cash receipts from marketings of all agricultural commodities 
in 19 63 amounted to $1,163 million, surpassing the previous rec- 
ord by almost $19 million. Receipts from sales of crops account- 
ed for 70 percent of the total, while livestock and livestock prod- 
ucts accounted for 30 percent. 

Tobacco is by far the most valuable crop produced in North 
Carolina. Receipts from sales of tobacco in 19 63 amounted to 
$546.6 million, or 4 7 percent of the total cash receipts from farm 
marketings. Other major cash crops listed in order are: cotton, 
corn, peanuts, soybeans, and wheat. North Carolina continues 
as one of the major states in receipts from sales of crops and is 
surpassed only by Texas, California, and Illinois. Principal items 
in livestock and livestock products are commercial broilers, eggs, 
dairy products, pork, and beef animals. 

In addition to the contribution made by North Carolina farmers 
in the production of agricultural commodities, consideration must 
be given to employment provided through purchase by farmers 
of items used in agricultural production. Farmers in North Caro- 
lina spend annually more than one-half billion dollars for items 
such as feed, seed, fertilizer, petroleum fuel and oil, and other 
items essential to their agricultural operations. In addition, many 
thousands of people are employed by industries processing the 
raw products and by industries manufacturing goods primarily 
for use on farms. It is obvious, therefore, that agriculture in 
North Carolina is one of the State's major enterprises. 



The State 7 

Conservation and Devexopment 

North Carolina continued to go forward at a record-breaking 
pace in 1963 and 1964 in the multi-types of work done in the field 
of conservation and development of its natural resources. 

New records were set in capital investments announced for 
new and expanded manufacturing plants. Income from the State's 
fast-growing travel industry set a new record in 1963, and the 
final report for 19 64 is expected to show North Carolina's varied 
attractions for tourists were even more alluring and income pro- 
ducing than they were in 1963. New attendance records for pub- 
lic use of State Parks were set. Products manufactured from the 
State's vast forests continued to have an output value of more 
than $1 billion annually. 

After long years of effort, leases on State-owned submerged 
lands in Beaufort County were given Texas Gulf Sulphur Co., one 
of the world's largest mineral companies, to mine known vast 
deposits of phosphate ore and that company shortly thereafter 
announced it planned to construct a $45 million facility near 
Aurora to make commercial use of this valuable mineral. Other 
companies are also carrying on extensive explorations in the area. 

An expanded program of research, education, advertising, in- 
dustrialization, and marketing was initiated for the commercial 
fishing industry by the Governor and the Board of Conservation 
and Development. 

Aid was given an increasing number of municipalities and 
counties in planning for their future growth. An increasing num- 
ber of municipalities got assistance in setting up permanent sur- 
vey markets — which are of great value to engineers, project de- 
velopers, and land surveyors. 

Capital investments in new and expanded manufacturing plants 
in the State in 1963 totaled $386,929,000 — a new, all-time record 
up to that time for a single year and exceeded the previous high 
of $279,447,000 in 1962 — an increase of about 38 per cent. The 
record for 1963 represents a jump of about $157,000,000 over the 
figure of $229,562,000 set in 1962. Total investments for the 
announced 546 new and expanded industries in 1964 were $398,- 
983,000. They will provide 29,573 new jobs and added annual 
payroll of $105,223,000. Of the 546 new and expanded indus- 
tries, 163 were new plants having a total investment of $162,- 
987,000. The 192 new plants and the expansion of 478 existing 



8 North Carolina Manual 

plants iu 1963 provided an estimated 31,000 new jobs, and po- 
tential earnings of more than |10 6 million annually as compared 
with 24,697 new jobs and added annual payroll estimated at mort- 
than $79 million in 1962. 

These new and expanded manufacturing plants were the result 
of efforts of many people working together at local, Federal, and 
State levels. The Department of Conservation and Development 
worked closely with the State's more than 200 industrial develop- 
ment organizations, chambers of commerce, banks, railroads, 
utility companies, the truck industry, and other groups in the 
broadening and strengthening of the State's industrial base. 

Of special significance was the continued growth of the State's 
food processing industry during the two-year period. In 1963 a 
total of 13 new food processing plants were announced; in 1964 
there were eight new ones. A total of 64 existing food processing 
facilities expanded in 1963 and 45 in 1964. These new and ex- 
panded food processing plants had announced capital investments 
totaling $24,747,000, provided new jobs for 1,797 persons, and 
added payroll of $6,002,000. Officials of the Department of Con- 
servation and Development attribute the growth of the food pro- 
cessing industry in North Carolina to the efforts being made at 
local and State levels, the growing importance of the Department 
of Food Science at North Carolina State of the University of North 
Carolina at Raleigh in the development of improved methods of 
food processing and packaging, and better quality foods now being 
grown in the State. 

While textiles continue to provide about 4 per cent of the ap- 
proximate 550,000 industrial jobs in the State, the growth of the 
food ])rocessing, metalworking, chemicals and allied products, 
tobacco, furniture, paper and allied products, and other types of 
manufacturing indicate North Carolina's industries are becoming 
more diversified in the products they produce. 

Latest reports show the output value of products produced an- 
nually in North Carolina's estimated 7,500 manufacturing plants 
have exceeded the $9 billion mark annually for the past several 
years. 

The tourist industry continued its steady growth during the 
past two years. In 19 63. for example, income from the travel- 
serving industry in the State reached an all-time high for a single 
year of $9 68 million. Taxes collected from tourists amounted to 
3.4 per cent of the State's total revenue in 1963. The aggressive 



The State 9 

campaign being carried on by the Travel Information Division of 
the Department of Conservation and Development to expand the 
travel industry and attract an increasing number of tourists to 
North Carolina to view its varied attractions from its coast to its 
mountains will be intensified during the coming years. 

Steady progress is being made in the carrying out of the ex- 
panded program announced in October, 1963, for development of 
the commercial fisheries industry. Supplementing an enlarged 
program of law enforcement for this industry was the expanded 
program of research, education, advertising, industrialization, 
and market development for promoting general development of 
commercial fishing. For the first time in its history, a trained 
biologist was named to direct the activities of the Division of 
Commercial Fisheries of the Department of Conservation and 
Development. A seafood processing section was also created with- 
in the Department of Conservation and Development to assist 
commercial fishermen to find better markets for their catches of 
finfish and shellfish, which had a value to fishermen of $13,117,786 
during the 1962-64 biennium. 

Increasing interest in community planning for future growth 
was indicated by the Division of Community Planning of the De- 
partment of Conservation and Development which reported that 
at the end of the 1962-64 biennium it had 114 contracts with 96 
municipalities and counties and 31 other contracts were awaiting 
Federal approval. At the end of the 1960-62 biennium, 78 con- 
tracts had been signed for this technical planning assistance with 
69 municipalities and counties. 

The spring fire season of 1963 was the worst in a number of 
years. Destruction of timberland and property was estimated by 
forestry officials at $7,250,000 during 1963, or about six times 
more than the damage caused by fire in 19 60 and 1961. And yet 
the record for the past eight years shows that material progress 
has been made in reducing the forest fire losses, including the so- 
called ground burning area which embraces approximately two 
million acres in the Coastal Plain. The State Forest Service said 
support it receives from industry, landowners, the Highway and 
Prison Departments, the Marine Corps at Camp Lejeune, and from 
town and rural fire departments is of inestimable aid in detect- 
ing and suppressing forest fires in the State's more than 20 mil- 
lion acres of forest lands. 

Better forestry practices are promoted and strongly advocated.

The wood and wood iibre growing in tlie State's woodlands are 
the basic raw materials for 45 per cent of the manufacturing es- 
tablishments in North Carolina. Records show the State's forests |m 
have been increasing in area and productivity for the past 25 
years. An enlarged program of disease control is being carried 
on continuously to combat insects and diseases which are deadly 
enemies of trees. Around 50 million seedlings are srown an- 
nually at the State's four nurseries. 

The 19 62-64 biennium is considered to be one of the most im- 
portant two-year periods in the State's mineral history. A num- 
ber of significant developments occurred during this period, with 
the most outstanding being the start of phosphate mining in Beau- 
fort County after many years of efforts to get this project acti- 
vated. In decreasing order of value, stone, sand and gravel, feld- 
spar, clays, lithium minerals, and scrap mica were the principal 
minerals mined during the past biennium. It is conservatively 
estimated by mineral officials that the average annual value of 
the mineral industry to the economy of North Carolina is in ex- 
cess of $150 million. Development of the tledgling phosphate 
industry is expected to have a profound effect on the State's in- 
dustrial development for many years to come. 

Recognizing that an increasing number of people now have 
more leisure time than ever before, the Division of State Parks 
of the Department of Conservation and Development made ex- 
tensive improvements in the 13 State Parks during the past two 
years. As a result of making these State-owned and operated 
recreational areas more attractive and accessible, the number of 
people using them reached a new high mark during the 1962-64 | 
biennium when 3,608,559 visitations were recorded. Xew at- 
tendance and public use records were set in both 1963 and 1964. 

Accomplishments in the field of conservation and development 
of the State's natural resources were numerous during 19 63 and 
19 64. New programs have been planned for the future, and they 
will be carried on with vigor and an awareness that they will be 
essential to North Carolina's continued growth and well-being 

Public Health in North Carolina 

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

Hi 

The State Board of Health and the 65 local health departments

The State 11 

serving the 100 counties assure an alert concern for the health 
3onditions in all facilities serving the public. Basic State laws 
jmpower the health departments to inspect and regulate conditions 
affecting health. 

While there were various laws and statutes relating to public 
tiealth measures passed prior to that time, the State Board of Health 
svas created by the General Assembly of 1877, and has been func- 
tioning, with changes from time to time, ever since. The General 
A.ssembly of 1957 recodified, and to a considerable extent modern- 
ized, all public health and related laws of North Carolina. This was 
ione for purposes of coordination and clarification. Guilford has 
;he 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 rural county in the United 
States to take this step, but it was not until July 1, 1949 that the 
ast four counties provided this service. 

There has been continued progress in public health in these 
nore than five decades. Illustrations of this can be found in every 
ispect of the legal responsibilities placed upon the State Board of 
Health. Among these may be noted: compulsory immunization of 
;hildren beginning at two months of age for poliomyelitis; licensure 
)f nursing and combination nursing and homes for the aged and 
nfirm; surveys in the areas of air pollution and environmental 
lealth; and the establishment of a coordinated State Radiological 
Program. North Carolina published the nation's first Occupational 
lealth Manual in 1961. 

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

State Highway Systems 

On January 1, 1964, the State had under its direct jurisdiction 
'2,243 miles of highways, roads and streets, a distance equivalent 
o almost three times around the world at the equator. This vast 
nileage is almost 10 per cent of the gross length of all mileage 
mder State control in the entire Nation. The three basic sys- 
ems in this North Carolina network are as follows: 



12 North Carolina Manual 

The Primary State Highway System in rural areas ia made up 
of the U. S., N. C. and Interstate numbered routes, and has a length 
of 11,559 miles, substantially all hard surfaced. The largest of the 
three systems is the Rural Secondary System of 57,539 miles, of 
which 28,190 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, New York and "Wisconsin. 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 3,145 miles of streets which form a part of the State Highway 
and Roads systems in municipalities. Of this Municipal System, 
2,922 miles are paved. 

Combining the three systems, the State operates a network of 
42,588 miles of paved and 29,655 miles of unpaved highways, roads 
and streets. The State has direct jurisdiction 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 345 miles of the latter have already 
been built to final standards and opened to traffic. 

Since 1921, the entire Road and Highway Program oi 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, 1964, the State Highway Fund, including Federal 
Aid, expended $207,897,032 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. 

Rural Electric and Telephone Service 

Rural areas of North Carolina received little benefits 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 Electri- 



The State 13 

fication Authority, which was created in that year to secure 
electric service for the rural areas. Today the Authority reports 
in operation 92,385 miles of rural lines serving 773,064 consum- 
ers. In addition to this, there were 270 miles under construction 
or authorized for construction to serve 3,069 consumers. Electri- 
fication has contributed considerably to the great progress in 
agricultural development over the past few years. The electrified 
farm provided 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 light- 
ing; 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 equip- 
ment. Electricity 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 produc- 
tion; 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 Electrification Authority with the responsibility of assist- 
ing rural residences 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 organ- 
ization of a number of member-owned Telephone Membership 
Corporations, over seven times as many farms now have telephone 
service as in 1945. In addition, a greater number of rural non- 
farm residences also have service. 

Public Schools 

North Carolina provides a basic State-supported nine months 

public school term, which is supplemented by the 170 local school 

administrative units. Public school enrollment in 1963-64 was 

1,186,655, the tenth largest enrollment of the 50 states. Attend- 



14 NdiMii C.M!(>LiNA Manual 

ance is cuuipulsory lor chikiren between the ages of 7 and ItJ. 
There were 45,700 teachers, principals and supervisors in 1963-64. 
Nearly 60 per cent of all general fund taxes collected by the State 
are used for elementary and secondary schools. The State finances 
operation of a Heet of 8.861 buses, transporting 585,871 pupils to 
the public schools. In 1963-64, there were 3,177 public school 
buildings, and the total value of public school property was $888,- 
256.162. The State Board of Education, with three ex-ofTicio mem- 
bers and ten members appointed by the Governor and confirmed 
by the General Assembly, has responsibility for the general super- 
vision and administration of the public school system and of the 
educational funds provided by the State and Federal governments; 
for the formulation of rules, regulations and policies concerning 
instructional programs and for fiscal matters. The State Super- 
intendent of Public Instruction is the administrative head of the 
public school system and secretary of the State Board of Educa- 
tion. Elected every four years by popular vote, he is responsible 
for administering the instructional policies established by the 
Board, for organizing and establishing the State Department of 
Public Instruction, and for other matters relating to administra- 
tion and supervision, excluding fiscal matters. The Controller of 
the State Board of Education is the executive administrator of 
the Board in the supervision and management of fiscal affairs, 
including the budgeting, allocation, accounting, certification, 
auditing and disbursing of public school funds administered by 
the Board. 

Com -M u mty Collkges 
The 19 63 General Assembly, following recommendations of the 
Governor's Commission on Education Beyond the High School, 
enacted legislation authorizing the establishment of a system of 
community colleges, technical institutes and industrial education 
centers. The Department of Community Colleges, under the 
direction of the State Board of Education, is responsible for State- 
level administration of this system. These three types of institu- 
tions are commuting, nonresident, multipurpose and community 
centered, offering to high school graduates and others beyond the 
normal high school age opportunities for two-year college par- 
allel programs, technical programs, vocational programs and 
general adult and community service courses. Institutions in op- 
eration in the fall of 1964 were two community colleges, eleven 



The Statk 15 

technical institutes and eight industrial educational centers, with 
eight extension units. Approved for establishment are nine com- 
munity colleges, three of which are presently industrial education 
centers, two technical institutes and one extension unit. During 
the 1963-64 fiscal year, 72,677 students were enrolled in courses 
at the twenty-one institutions. This enrollment is the equivalent 
of 8,751 full-time students. There were 383 full-time faculty 
members and administrators, plus a full-time equivalent of 121 
part-time faculty members. 

Colleges and Universities 

The University of North Carolina, chartered in 17 89, was the 
first State university in the United States to open its doors. 

Today, the University of North Carolina is composed of three 
units: the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Caro- 
lina State of the University of North Carolina at Raleigh and the 
University of North Carolina at Greensboro. 

There are twelve tax-supported senior colleges located through- 
out the State: Agricultural and Technical College (Greensboro), 
Appalachian State Teachers College (Boone), Asheville-Biltmore 
College (Asheville), Charlotte College (Charlotte), East Carolina 
College (Greenville), Elizabeth City State College (Elizabeth 
City), Fayetteville State College (Payetteville), North Carolina 
College at Durham (Durham), Pembroke State College (Pem- 
broke), Western Carolina College (Cullowhee), Wilmington Col- 
lege (Wilmington) and Winston-Salem College (Winston-Salem). 
Three State community colleges, requiring local financial support 
in addition to State funds, are in operation: Central Piedmont 
Community College (Charlotte), College of the Albemarle (Eliza- 
beth City) and Gaston College (Gastonia). 

In all there are sixty-four institutions of higher learning in the 
State. Among the forty-six private or church-related institutions, 
there are: one university (Duke University in Durham, one of the 
most heavily endowed institutions of higher learning in the 
world), twenty-five senior colleges, sixteen junior colleges, one 
theological seminary, and three Bible colleges. 

Total college enrollment in North Carolina institutions of high- 
er learning, both public and private, was 86,085 in Fall 1963. 
and 92.993 in Fall 1964.

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 State. 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 than

$100,000, yet the people were satisfied. Tlie building had beeu 
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 tlie Capitol, Written by David Paton. 

the Architect 

"The State Capitol is 160 feet in length from north lo south 
by 140 feet from east to west. The whole height is dlVz 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/2 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 
was erected in Athens about 500 years before Christ. An octagon 
tower surrounds the rotunda, which is ornamented with Grecian 
cornices, etc., and its dome is decorated at top with a similar 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: P'irst, 
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 the 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 Capitol 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 Ch. 8, SL 1963) 
By Ralph B. Reeves, Jr. 

The Building Commission 

The 1959 General Assembly appropriated funds and authorized 
the establishment of a Building Commission for the construction of 
a new building for the Legislative Branch of the State Government. 
The statute provided that two members bei appointed by each Pre- 
siding Officer of the two Houses and that three be appointed by 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. Pinley, 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 
i)f 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 5%- 
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 lo citizens 
of North Carolina was $1.24 each. 



*The Building is eommonly referred to as THK STATE HOUSE.

Description of the Building 

The State Legislative Building, though not an imitation of his- 
toric classical styles, is classical in character. Rising from a 340- 
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 members' 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 on the left and the letter C in gilt on the right of 
said star, the circle containing the same to be one-third the width of 
the union. 

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

Sec. 3. That above the star in the center of the union there 
shall be a gilt scroll in semicircular form, containing in black 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 c. 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. 

3. Resolved, That we do hereby declare ourselves a free and in- 
dependent people, are, and of right ought to be a sovereign and

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, 
we do hereby ordain and adopt as a rule of life all, each and 
every of our former laws — wherein nevertheless the Crown of 
Great Britain never can be considered as holding rights, privileges, 
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. 



THE GREAT SEAL 

The Constitution of North Carolina, Article III, section 16, re- 
quires that 

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

The use of a Great Seal for the attestation of important 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 

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

"The Select Committee taking into Consideration the usurpa- 
tions and violences attempted and committed by the King and 
Parliament of Britian against America, and the further Measures 
to be taken for frustrating the same, and for the better defence of 
this province reported as follows, to wit, 

"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 Britain have usurped a Power over the 
Persons and Properties of the People unlimited and uncontrouled; 
and disregarding their humble Petitions for Peace. Liberty and 
safety, have made divers Legislative Acts, denouncing War Fam- 
ine and every Species of Calamity against the Continent in Gen- 
eral. That British Fleets and Armies have been and still are 
daily employed in destroying the People and commiting the most 
horrid devastations on the Country. That Governors in different 
Colonies have declared Protection to Slaves who should imbrue 
their Hands in the Blood of their Masters. That the Ships belong- 
ing to America are declared prizes of War and many of them have 
been violently seized and confiscated in consequence of which 
multitudes of the people have been destroyed or from easy Cir- 
cumstances reduced to the most Lamentable distress 

"And whereas the moderation hitherto manifested by the United 
Colonies and their sincere desire to be reconciled to the mother 
County 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 impowered to concur with the delegates of the other 
Colonies in declaring Independency, and forming foreign Alli- 
ances, reserving to this Colony the Sole, and Exclusive right of 
forming a Constitution and Laws for this Colony, and of appoint- 
ing delegates from time to time (under the direction of a general 
Representation thereof) to meet the delegates of the other Col- 
onies 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 far more condensed and terse than the English. The 
three words, "Esse Quam Videri," require at least six English 
words to express the same idea. 

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 North Carolina Manual 

It is a little singular that until the act of 18 93 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 145; G. S. 144-2.) 

The State Colors 

The General Assembly of 19 45 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, 1941, c. 289; G. S. 145-1.) 

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 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 land 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 RIGHTS 

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 and 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 

45 



46 North Carolina Manual 

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

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

Sec. 5. Of allegiance to the United States Government. That 
every citizen of this State owes paramount allegiance to the 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. Puilic debt; bonds issued under Ordinance of Conven- 
tion of J868, '68-'69, '69-'70, declared invalid; exception. The State 
shall never assume or pay, or authorize the collection of any debt 
or obligation, express or implied, intiurred 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 ttte 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 legislatifve, executive and judicial powers distinct. 
The legislative, executive, and supreme judicial powers of the 
government ought to he forever separate and distinct from each 
other. 

Sec. 9. 0/ 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 bail. Excessive bail should not b© 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 XoRTii Carolina Manual 

Sec. 17. No persons 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. Pe)-so7is 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 laiu 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 laws. Retrospective laws, punishing acts 
committed before the existence of such laws, and by them only 
declared criminal, are oppressive, unjust and incompatible with 
liberty; wherefore no ex post facto law ought to be made. No 
law taxing 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. Two 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. Time 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 51 

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

amendments constituting this Article; and the laws and rules gov- 
erning these courts and appeals from the inferior courts to the 
Superior Court shall continue in force and shall be deemed to comply

THE AMERICAN'S CREED 

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

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

87 



88 N'niMii Cakoijna Manuai. 

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

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

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

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

"That on the admission of every new state into the Union, one 
star be added to the union of the flag; and that such addition 
shall take effect on the Fourth of July next 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 thi^ 
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 233 Arch Street, Philadel- 
phia, and not at 23 9. 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 70, 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 1893 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 flag is 
not displayed, all present should stand and face toward the music. 
Those in uniform should salute at the first note of the anthem, 
retaining this position until the last note. All others should stand 
at attention, men removing the headdress. When the flag is dis- 
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 
from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in 
the open. However, the flag may be displayed at night upon 
special occasions when it is desired to produce a patriotic effect. 

(b) The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremon- 
iously. 

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

(d) The flag should be displayed on all days when the 
weather permits, especially on New Year's Day, January 1 ; 
Inauguration Day, Jan. 20; Lincoln's Birthday, February 12; 
Washington's Birthday, February 22; Army Day, April 6; Easter 
Sunday (variable) ; Mother's Day, second Sunday in May; Me- 



90 North Carolina Manual 

morial Day (half staff until noon), May 30; Flag Day, June 14 
Independence Day, July 4; Labor Day, first Monday in September 
Constitution Day, September 17; Columbus Day, October 12 
Navy Day, October 27; Veteran's Day, November 11; Thanks- 
giving Day, fourth Thursday in November; Christmas Day, Decem- 
ber 25; such other days as may be proclaimed by the President 
of the United States; the birthdays of States (dates of admission) ; 
and on State holidays. 

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

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

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

Sec. 175. The flag, when carried in a procession with another 
flag or flags, should be either on the marching right; that is, 
the flag's own right, or, if there is a line of other flags, in front 
of the center of that line. 

(a) The flag should not be displayed on a float in a parade 
except from a staff, or as provided in subsection n> of this 
section. 

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

(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if 
on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States 
of America, except during church services conducted by naval 1 
chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above 
the flag during the church services for the personnel of the Navy. 

No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any 
other national or international flag equal, above or in a position 
of superior prominence or honor to or in place of, the flag of the 
United States at any place within the United States or any Terri- 
tory or possession thereof: Provided. That nothing in this section 
shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore 
followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a posi- 



The American Flag 91 

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- 
played with another flag against a wall from crossed staffs, 
should be on the right, the flag's own right, and its staff should 
be in front of the staff of the other flag. 

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

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

(g) TVTien flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are 
to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags 

! should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids 
i the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation 
, in time of peace. 

(h) When the flag of the United States is displayed from a 
j staff projecting horizontally or at an angle from the window 
' sill, balcony, or front of a building, the union of the flag should 
' be placed at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half staff. 
I When the flag is suspended over a sidewalk from a rope extending 

from a house to a pole at the edge of the sidewalk, the flag should 

be hoisted out, union first, from the building. 

(i) When the flag is displayed otherwise than by being flown 
from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out. 
or so suspended that its folds fall as free as though the flag were 
staffed. 

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



92 XoKTii Cakom.na Ma.m al 

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

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

(m) The flag, when flown at half-staff, should be first hoisted 
to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff 
position. The flag should be again raised to the peak before 
it is lowered for the day. By "half-staff" is meant 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. 

(n) When the flag is used to cover a casket, it should be so 
placed that the union is at the head and over the left shoulder. 
The flag should not be lowered into the grave nor allowed to 
touch the ground. 

Sec. 176. No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the 
United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any per- 
son or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization 
or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor. 

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

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



The American Flag 93 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sec. 177. During the ceremony of hoisting or lowering the 
flag or when the flag is passing in a parade or in a review, all 
persons present should face the flag, stand at attention, and 
salute. Those present in uniform should render the military 
salute. When not in uniform, men should remove the headdress 
with the right hand holding it at the left shoulder, the hand 
being over the heart. Men without hats should salute in the same 
manner. Aliens should stand at attention. Women should salute 
by placing the right hand over the heart. The salute to the flag 
in the moving column should be rendered at the moment the 
flag passes.

Sec. 17 8. Any rule or custom pertaining to the display of the 
flag of the United States of America, set forth in sections 171-17 8 
of this title, may be altered, modified, or repealed, or additional 
rules with respect thereto may be prescribed, by the Commander 
in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, whenever 
he deems it to be appropriate or desirable; and any such altera- 
tion or additional rule shall be set forth in a proclamation. 

The Pledge to the Flag 

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

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, 
And to the Republic for which it stands, 
One Nation 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, 1939). 
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 2'1, 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

THE CAPITOL AT WASHINGTON 

The Capitol building in Washington, D. C, is situated on a 
plateau 88 feet above the level of the Potomac River and covers 
an area of 153,112 square feet, or approximately three and one- 
half acres. Its length, from north to south, is 751 feet, four inches; 
its width, including approaches, is 350 feet; and its location is 
described as being in latitude 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 287 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 of Clark Mills, on the Bladensburg Road, near Wash- 
ington. The cost of the casting and the expenses in connectioTi 
were $20,796.82, and the sculptor was paid $3,000 for the plaster 
model. It was erected and placed in its present position December 
2. 1863. 

The grounds have had an area of 58.8 acres, at one time a part 
of Cern Abby Manor, and at an early date were occupied by a 
subtribe of the Algonquin Indians known as the Powhatans, whose 
council house was then located at the foot of the hill. By sub- 
sequent purchase of ground at the North of the Capitol and at 
the west of the new House Office building the area of the grounds 
has been increased to 139 1/^ acres. 

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

The Senate Chamber is 113 feet, 3 inches, in length by 80 feet, 
3 inches, in width and 3 6 feet in height. The galleries will ac- 
commodate 682 persons. 

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

The room, until 1935 the meeting place of the Supreme Court, 
was, until 1859, occupied as the Senate Chamber. Previous to that

as a law library. 

Tho Capitol has a Hoor area of 14 acres, and 4 3u rooms are de- 
voted to office, committee, and storage purposes. There are 14,51s 
square feet of skylights, 6 79 windows, and 550 doorways. 

The dome receives light through 108 windows, and from thi 
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 IS, 1793, by President Washington, with Masonic cere- 
monies. It is constructed of sandstone from quarries on Aqui;i 
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 R. H. Latrobe. 
architects. 

The north wing was finished in 18 00 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 1827, 
was .$2,433,844.13. 

The cornerstone of the extensions was laid on the Fourth of 
.July, 1851, by President Fillmore, Daniel Webster officiating as 
orator. This work was prosecuted under the architectual direc- 
tion of Thomas U. Walter until 1865, when he resigned, and it was 
completed under the supervision of Edward Clark. The material 
used in the walls is white marble from the quarries 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. 

Tlie 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 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 



Declabation of Independe>ce 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, and unacknowledged by our laws; 
giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 



lOU Xniiiii CakolIiN'a Maniai. 

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

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

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign 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 
he the ruler of a free people. 



DECLAUATIOX of l.MJKPK.MtK.M K 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, which 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 the necessity, which denounces our Separation, 
and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind — Enemies in War, 
in Peace Friends. 

We. Therefore, the Representatives of the United States of 
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.

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,

PART 11 
CENSUS 



POPULATION OF THE STATE OF 
NORTH CAROLINA 

Eighteenth Census of the United States: 1960 

The population of North Carolina's urban places continued to 
grow faster than that of the rural areas between 1950 and 1960, 
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 fi'om 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 39.5 per cent of the State's popula- 
tion in 1960 as compared with 33.7 per cent in 1950. Rural areas 
in 1960 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 35 incorporated places of 10,000 or more in 19 60. 
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 
with 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 17 90, 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 between 1940 and 1950, 
and 4,500,000 between 1950 and 1960. The present population 
represents a density of 8 6.4 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. 

Table 1 presents the figures for counties and for incorporated 
places of 10,000 or more, and Table 2 for incorporated places of 
less than 10,000. 127

NORTH CAROLINA DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM 

FOR 1964 

Tile Democrats of North Carolina, representing 2154 precincts, 
in convention assembled, respectfully submit the following Plat- 
form of the Democratic Party of North Carolina for 1964-65: 

INTRODUC TIOX 

The 19 64 Platform Committee, as instructed by the State Demo- 
cratic Executive Committee in January of this year, after careful, 
deliberate and sincere study presents this document Avith this brief 
introduction. 

It is the feeling of the committee that this Platform 1964 should 
be more than words on paper; should represent the majority 
feeling of individual Democrats in all 100 counties; should con- 
tain a philosophy of wanting to do; should show a desire to con- 
stantly improve and should reflect an attitude of looking ahead 
and advancement. 

The committee looked backward in order to determine the rate 
of progress and to evaluate the many items on North Carolina's 
agenda to decide if they appear in the proper perspective with as 
near a balance as may be. In judging the past performance of 
the state of North Carolina, we can be in a better position to see 
farther and, as conditions change, it is realized that methods, 
procedures and habits must also change. 

We ask that the Platform Committee for 19 66 also take a hard 
fast look at this document and determine future goals. We ask 
that individual members of our vast party organization study 
this outline for progress, not only to be proud of achievement, 
but also to assist in making these goals become history. 

Our goals are listed here. To meet these will be the task of 
others, namely the executive, legislative and judicial branches. 
Specifics, details and procedures will be exercised by those to be 
elected as encouraged by those who do the electing. The pro- 
grams listed here are the net result of many individuals working 
together. These are principles which our party can proudly and 
confidentlv submit to the citizens of North Carolina.

The basic premise of a democracy is the ability of people to 
govern themselves. The success ot' this principle will continue 
only so long as individuals believe in themselves, their native land 
and their own future. This success breeds privileges as well as 
guarantees rights. The connecting factor is individual responsi- 
bility. 

.Millions of individuals are bound together by a complex or- 
ganization known as the Democratic Party. In a test of more 
than 150 years, the Democratic Party has proven itself capable 
of facing and mastering new problems, new challenges and new 
opportunities. 

Since 1900, individuals of North Carolina have entrusted their 
present and future to the Democratic Party: in turn, the Demo- 
cratic Party has been faithful to that trust. Democratic leader- 
ship, with a desire to meet the challenges of ever changing con- 
ditions, and ever mindful of individual needs, gives ample proof 
of the capacity of the Democratic Party to govern well. The re- 
sults have l)een social, economic and educational progress. 

With a backward glance and a U)ng. hard studied look at <iur 
future, we state with confidence — 

"Good Government is a habit in Xorth Carolina — And the 
Democratic TaiMy made it so." 

i)E>i<)< u\ii( 1 .\itrv .\i I \ins 

Feeling that a successriil democracy <lepeii(ls on tiie intelligeii' 
evaluation of issues an;! roiidit'.ons, we pledge our I'arty to in- 



Dkm()('i;at]( Pi.atiokm 147 

creasing emphasis on political education. Tlie Youns Democrats 
of North Carolina, worlving with all Democrats, have made great 
progress and have been responsible for political advancement and 
education. Since 1960, under the leadership of many Demo- 
crats, vast improvement in communications has resulted in in- 
creased interest and productive activities, as well as membership. 

The women of our Party have been given additional trust and 
responsibility and they are meeting the test. We commend this 
wing of our Party for their efforts in stimulating increased inter- 
est in political affairs. Thousands of women are constantly striv- 
ing for better government through Democratic Party organiza- 
tions. 

We pledge continued support and activity for the Teen-Dem 
Clubs of North Carolina, the Young Democratic Clubs of North 
Carolina and the 88 individual organizations of Democratic Wo- 
men. 

We charge the State Democratic Executive Committee with the 
responsibility of disseminating political education, assisting in 
organization and activities of all branches of the Democratic Party, 
and continuing their splendid leadership in this field. 

STATE GOVERNMENT 
Executive 

The Democratic Party is constantly aware of the excellent ser- 
vice which thousands of people render to their state. Under the 
progressive leadership of Governor Terry Sanford, the continuity 
of good government has been maintained. State employees 
through the years have rendered loyal and devoted service. To 
them we pledge fair treatment and just compensation. 

We Democrats realize that almost 2000 citizens of our state 
contribute to its growth and advancement by giving of their time, 
energies and talents while serving on advisory bodies for state 
agencies, institutions and councils. Their contribution aids im- 
measurably in developing state policies. All of these citizens are 
living testimony that "Good Government is a habit in North Caro- 
lina — And the Democratic Party made it so." 

We call upon all members of the executive and administrative 
branch to continue their records of economy in government and 
by constant study and exploration to add even greater efficiency 
to daily routine. Continued growth will dictate adopting new 



iiifthods ;iii(l d('V('l'ii)iii,u biMlci- ways to iiiiin'ove sound biisinesss 
jiHl luxis. 

Legislalivo 

J3eino(;ratic ineiiibris ul' the General Assembly, elected by major- 
ity vote of their respective counties and districts, represent the 
basic thinking of the people. They are ever mindful of the im- 
portance of the individual as well as continued progress for the 
state. Recent general assemblies, in accordance with the Consti- 
tution, have apportioned and redistricted themselves. We ask 
that the General Asseml)ly continue its efforts to keep pace with 
the shifts in population and to rntlect these needs in fair and just 
representation. 

Judiciary 

The citizens of our slate have let it be known in a convincing 
manner that improvements are desired in the administration of 
justice. Even now. dedicated North Carolinians are working on 
a practical implementation of the constitutional amendments. 
We resi)ectfully re(iuest the General Assembly to proceed with 
the work on this as expeditiously as practical. It is only right 
and i)roi)er that political parties support and encourage all rea- 
sonable efforts in this direction. 

Cndei- Democratic leadership, the members of the state judiciary 
are administering justice impartially, faithfully and wisely. 

AGRUTLTURE 

The Democratic Pai'ty has traditionally been the leader and 
responsi])le, in a large measure, for the greatest farming pro- 
ductivity ever exp'^rienced. Vet. technical advancements and 
fruits ot research have resulted in many families having to leave 
the farm. To maintain a well-balanced economy and yet keep 
ujt witli re(iuirements of a throwing population, we must develop 
new and ])t'iter methods to prevent depopulation and to increase 
the annual income of our farm families. 

Ihe Dentocratic Party pledges its firm support in f-ncouraging 
tliH various segments of government to advance innv methods and 
tei'hniques. North Carolina farm i)r()ducts must bi- i)rocessed and 
distributed so that the farmers of this state will receive their 
fair share of agricultual income. Research pi'ograms should nt)t 
only be continued but also be expanded so that the g<-nHral puhlie 



DK.MOCKATK Pl.AlKOKM 14!) 

will have renewed confidence in commodities we produce. Ex- 
tension programs and agencies designed to improve tlie lot of the 
tarming population should be continued. 

We pledge that our State will continue its cooperation with the 
National Administration in working" together to solve our prob- 
lems. 

CORRECTIONAL, PROGRAMS 

Under able leadership, modernization of prison facilities lias 
continued. It is a source of pride that our systems have been 
studied and copied by other states. We endorse the continuation 
of the present policy that all prisoners be humanly treated and 
usefully employed while in prison so they may return to society 
with better prospects for leading useful and law-abiding lives. 
The work release program should be continued and improved. 

Under this administration, the use of probation and parole has 
been upgraded to the extent that it now serves as a model for 
other states. Parolees and probationers are daily proving that 
this system is helping our society and at the same time lessening 
the cost of the correctional program. We pledge our support. 

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT 

Realizing that a growing, progressing state is faced with a mul- 
titude of problems, our Democratic leadership has been recog- 
nized by the nation for its current efforts to improve the stand- 
ard of living of every man, woman and child in North Carolina. 
Additional sources of work must be found for our shifting and 
growing population. We will continue the efforts to provide the 
best in education and to encourge all people regardless of their 
station. This will require a constant study in finding new ways 
to assist every individual who is willing to work to achieve the 
best standard of living obtainable to him. Our educational pro- 
gram must include encouragement of attendance in public schools 
and take advantage of adult education, community colleges and 
trade schools. We will continue our commitment to private en- 
terprise and cooperation in assisting the economic development 
of all areas of the state. 

The state should continue to promote and advertise our natural 
resources which are attractive to tourists. 

Created by Democratic vision, several agencies and commissions

(■hart;i'(l with the responsibility are coiislaiil ly scckii)^ ways to 
improve the standard of living and hai)piiiess ol our citizens. The 
iJoard of Conservation and Developineiit . the X. (". State Torts 
Authority, and others, have maintained a record that is the (■iiv\ 
of other states. New ideas, new methods and a constant com- 
munication with all other agencies will l)c cont inncd at a faster 
pi.ce. 

EDUCATION 

I'nder courageous leadership of the Democratic Administration. 
a new concept of education is being devel()I)^■d. Realizing that 
learning is the key to responsible citizenship to individual and 
collective enlightenment, this program will continn(\ We heartily 
endorse the continued jirogress in order to im|>i'"ve the e.xcellence 
of this program. 

Tlie per capita income of Nortli Carolinians will increase in i)ro- 
portion to the increase in public school advancement. Encour- 
agement programs, parental interest and awakened public aware- 
ness of all educational programs will be accelerated. An informed 
people is an understanding i)opulace. Constant improvement and 
an awareness of individual and community responsibility will re- 
sult in more responsible citizens dedicated to the cause of im- 
proving their own lot. 

Tiiblic Schools — We i)ledge supi)ort to a re-evaluation of cur- 
riculum to lit the needs of the individual students as neaiiy as 
possible: to reduce tlie teacher workload; to encourage outstand- 
ing students to enter the teaching profession; to continue public 
understanding in teachin.g i)roblems; to help advance popular 
education and to provide adeciuate financial support to this vast 
endeavor. 

Adult Education — An expanding pro.gram should be accelerated 
to meet tlie educational needs of our adults. This can be done 
through public awareness, encouragement and expansion of i)ro- 
grams on educational television, and in classes on the local level. 
Appropriate courses of instruction should be provided througli 
existing extension metliods and industrial schools to adequately 
nieet the needs of those adults desiring to increase their pro- 
ficiency level and to provide them with training which will re- 
sult in increased income. 

Hijjlier Education — A renewed emjihasis has been placefl on 



Di:M<K CATIC Pl.ATlOltM 151 

higher education during tlie current administration. The Gen- 
eral Assembly, in one of the master strokes of our generation, has 
created the foundation of a masterpiece which will insure that 
every high school graduate who desires to do so will have an op- 
portunity to further his training. Those desiring advancement 
in education in order to become more productive may find no fa- 
cilities unless we increase our emphasis in this direction. 

A new concept known as the community college is just begin- 
ning in our state. Many communities have already made plans 
to meet their own area requirements. Others are in the study 
stage. North Carolina should continue its roll of leadership in 
assisting, as much as possible, those communities desiring to im- 
prove higher education in their area. 

The Democratic Party urges all people to continue to support 
the increasing demands of education with renewed vigor. If this 
means sacrifice, then sacrifice we must. Whatever investment is 
necessary must be made. We, the Democrats of this state, are 
seeking wholeheartedly to find ways and means of meeting the 
educational needs of all of our people, with full knowledge that 
there is no better investment that can be made. 

ELECTION LAWS 

The State Board of Elections and those dedicated men and wo- 
men who administer fair and honest elections in our more than 
2100 precincts are contributing much to the cause of democracy. 
Improvements in election techniques, especially in the field of reg- 
istration, will be studied and encouraged. The Democratic Party 
holds to the premise that voting by all citizens is a right, duty and 
responsibility that should be made as accessible as possible. 

We continue our pledge to provide an effective State election 
machinery which will facilitate registration and voter partici- 
pation. 

FISCAL AP FAIRS 

One of the most outstanding achievements of Democratic lead- 
ership is the prudent management of finances and sound financial 
policies. The General Assembly and administrations have con- 
tinued this policy in maintaining fiscal integrity. As a result, 
our debt management practices have given our state bonds the 
highest rating obtainable and have made possible continuing re-

We will continue to devciop to the lullest extent the resources 
of North Carolina's rich historical heritage and to make these 
available to ;ill citizens of the state and nation. 

Our inci'easi'd leisure time and an increased thirst for improve- 
ment of the cultural life require that North Carolina continue 
to lead in this field. Under Democratic leadership a perform- 
ing arts program has recently been established. For a number 
of years citizens have supported the North Carolina Art Museum 
and the North Carolina Symphony, which have l)rought an appre- 
ciation of fine music throughout the state. The Democratic 
Party, r'-alizing the value of these institutions to the enlighten- 
ment of all citizens, pledges continued support. 

HIGHWAYS 

Our state, large in geography and population, can best be con- 
nected by a road system which should be second to none. North 
Carolina has long been the leader with the largest state system 
of roads in the nation. A highway commission whose main con- 
cern is the needs of the people and the constant flow of commerce 
between all areas of the state is hampered by the lack of funds 
to carry out sound long-range transportation goals. To this end. 
we pledge our support to the approval of an adequate road l>ond 
issue to be financed under the existing tax structure. 

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

Hij^lnvay Safety — The N. C. Department of Motor Vehicles, dedi- 
cated to the proposition of administering laws designed to pro- 
tect life, limb and property on our highways, has long been a 
leader in this field. Their approved methods have been adopted 
by other states. For seven consecutive years, our highway pa- 
trol has been officially recognized as the most outstanding in the 
I'nited States. 

Realizing the great strides that have been made in North Caro- 
lina in the fields of education, enforcement and engineering, and 
itointing with pardonable pride to Th»in, we nevertheless reros- 



Democratic Platform 153 

nize that much remains to be done to make our streets and high- 
ways safer. Therefore, we pledge that every effort will be made 
to continue to put into effect the sound recommendations of the 
Action Program of the President's Committee for Traffic Safety 
so that North Carolina can continue its position as a leader among 
the states in efforts to reduce deaths, injuries and accidents on 
our highways. 

LABOR 

We pledge our continued support for humane labor laws, safe 
and healthful working conditions, increased Workmen's Compen- 
sation and an Unemployment Insurance program that is fair and 
equitable to all concerned. 

We support laws guaranteeing employees the right to work and 
employers the right to conduct their businesses under the laws. 
In order to assure increased employment, industrial schools and 
proper training for skilled labor will create better jobs resulting 
in a broadened and higher standard of living. 

We subscribe to the premise "a laborer is worthy of his hire" 
and recommend that the minimum wage which has been increased 
by the Democratic administration, be raised to $1.00 per hour. 

We propose that women in our governmental agencies be given 
equal compensation for equal work; equal promotion for equal 
preparation and equal responsibility for all employees. 

NATURAL RESOURCES 

The Democratic Party pledges its support to the continuation 
and improvement of programs which recognize the interrelation 
of all our natural resources and to use and manage them wisely 
for the public benefit. 

Realizing that more people have more leisure time, the facili- 
ties for constant studies and ways to improve recreation at all 
levels should be continued. Counties and towns should be en- 
couraged to have a sound program of recreation for all ages. 

PUBLIC HEALTH 

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 public health facil- 
ties for all of our people. 

The Party pledges its continued aid in providing the facilities. 



154 Xoiiiii Cauoiiva AIwiAi. 

iht iraiiied personnel, and the sound administrative organization 
necessary to maintain progressive mental health programs. 

Recognizing the growth in our population, tlie outstanding pub- 
lic health program must be continued to decrease infant mortal- 
ity rate, maternal deaths, and to continue education on all levels 
in approved health practices. 

SENIOIi CITIZENS 

Tlie Democratic Party lias long recognized the existence and 
increasing number of our citizens in retirement. Many agencies 
contribute to the general welfare and happiness of these citizens. 
We pledge our continued support to improving the services of 
tliese agencies and extend our assistance to organizations design- 
ed for utilizing individual productivity and contributions to so- 
ciety. 

Veterans — Our program for Veterans should be continued es- 
pecially in the field of widows and orphans. Agencies designe<i 
to assist veterans and their families should be continued as long 
as the need exists. 

TAXATIOX 

North Carolina remains at one of the nation's lowest levels of 
combined state and local taxation per capita and at the same time 
offers public service programs which in many areas are nationally 
outstanding. We favor continued emphasis on the businesslike, 
economical administration of government; a tax structure that 
equitably distributes the cost of services which it is the duty of 
the government to render; increased personal exemption to cor- 
respond to the Federal income tax exemption and just, fair and 
firm administration of the tax laws to retain public confidence. 

We oppose any increase in state taxes. 

UTILITIES 

The 1963 General Assembly made a forward step in the public 
interest by revising the utility laws. Regulated utilities are in- 
vesting some $150 million annually in new and expanded facilities 
serving more than a million customers. Telephone and gas com- 
]>anies are meeting the requests for increased services. The service 
and rates of public utilities are of great importance to the growth 
and welfare of our state. 



I 



Democratic Platform 155 

The Party pledges its firm support for the Rural Electrification 
Authority and the Rural Telephone program, which have added 
immeasurably to rural living and productivity. 

AVELFARE 

One ol' the prime objectives of a democracy is to help those in- 
dividuals who cannot help themselves. It is now realized that 
those in the lower income bracket are not necessarily the problem 
of welfare alone. We urge community leaders all over the state 
to think and act in terms of community problems as well as state- 
wide problems. We pledge a continuation of this study and co- 
operation wherever possible to increase the standard of living 
for all. 

NATIONAL AFFAIRS 

The citizens of North Carolina have been blessed with able 
leadership and counsel through Democratic administrations. We 
encourage continued participation and splendid relations with the 
Democratic National Committee and the current National Admin- 
istration. The leadership of the Democratic Party will continue 
its efforts so that the voice of North Carolina people will continue 
to be heard in a dignified, sincere and cooperative manner. 

Remembering eight years of confusion, indifference, uncertain- 
ty and lack of national purpose under Republican-led administra- 
tions, we therefore pledge our continued, unqualified support to 
the nominees of the Democratic Party, national as well as state. 

We pledge continuation of our interest, support and devotion 
to our country as so aptly expressed by our late President — "Ask 
not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for 
your country." 

CONCLUSION 

The Democratic Party reasserts its faith in the future of North 
Carolina. As the result of the faith aiad confidence of the major- 
ity of the people of this State, our Party again will respond to 
the challenge. By working together as good neighbors, all North 
Carolinians regardless of race, color or creed, with Divine guid- 
ance and faith in ourselves, our heritage and our destiny can 
present our children with an even greater North Carolina. To 
this end, we commit ourselves.

NORTH CAROLINA REPUBLICAN STATE 
PLATFORM 1964 

NATIOXAI^ AFFAIltS 

The present national Democratic Administration. an<i indeed 
the Democratic Party itself, is marked, among other things, by 
two extremely dangerous trends: One, an ever-increasing cen- 
tralization of power in the Federal Government; and two, an utter 
disregard for financial responsibility in our national fiscal affairs. 

Responsible citizenship requires that we ask not what Uncle 
Sam can do for us, but only for the free opportunity to do things 
for ourselves and our country. The current trend toward depend- 
ence ui)on the Xntional Government and the consequent socializa- 
tion of our economy must be reversed. This is a nation which has 
prospered in a climate of freedom which has permitted each in- 
dividual to develop his maximum potential. We must move away 
from the deadening influence of paternalism and return to poli- 
cies which stimulate and encourage individual incentive. Then, 
and only then, can our nation march forward to its greater destiny 
— strong enough to discourage outside influences, sensitive to the 
welfare of all of its citizens at home. 

Serious effort must be made to return financial stability to our 
nation. Our young people in whose hands the future rests must 
be able to make plans without fear that a galloping inflation will 
destroy them. Governmental expenditure must be curbed, and 
that tax burden must be lightened. Tlic record of the present 
Democratic Administration is nothing short of shocking. In the 
first year there was a budget increase of 6.3 billion dollars over ' 
the previous year; in tlie next budget, an increase of an additional 
4.8 billion; in the third budget to end June 30th, an expected in- i 
crease of 5.2 billion; and the outlook for next year an increase of 
at least 3.2. billion — an anticipated total increase in the annual 
budget of the Federal Government of l!t.5 billion dollars since | 
Eisenhower. We are now in an era of more than lOn billion dol- ' 
lar budgets. 

We commend the heroic efforts of Congressman Charles R. -Jon- 
as, of the Appropriations Committee and Congressman James T. 
Broyhill to stem this tide of public spending: and we pledge our i, 
best to return them to Congress with otluM-s of like mind. This j' 



Republican Platfokm 203 

state needs more Republican Congressmen to help organize the 
Congress and direct its policies into channels more in line with 
the thinking of tlie people of North Carolina. 

Strength at home is essential if we would be influential abroad. 
Our prestige in other lands is at a low ebb. Communists are 
parked on our back door-step in Cuba. For the first time in his- 
tory, our country has submitted to the indignity of paying tribute. 
We cannot forget the fiasco at the Bay of Pigs. Bearded Castro 
has given the Soviet Union a base in the Americas and Com- 
munism is being spread throughout Latin and South America. We 
call upon our national leadership to let the interest and national 
safety of this country, not popularity polls, be the polar star for 
the guidance of our foreign policy — and pursue that policy with 
firmness and with strength. 

STATE AFFAIRS 

North Carolina possesses potential unexcelled by any of the 
other 4 9 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 becomes primarily interested in its own perpetuation without 
primary regard to the best interest of the people. Our present 
low position among the states in education, health, welfare, in- 
come, etc. is proof of the results of the one-party system. 

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 
from 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 ad- 
verse circumstances. For too long our Educational program has 
been shackled by the chains of a one-party system of government. 
North Carolina public education program ranks near the bottom 
in the nation — only 32% of North Carolina Citizens over 25 years 



204 XoKMi Cakoi.i.na Mam ai. 

of iiizc have a liigh school education. There is a staggering total 
of nearly ToO.oOU functionally illiterates in North Carolina. 
Among the states of the nation we rank 4 7th in the number ot 
pupils per teacher, 44th in the per cent of Selective Service regis- 
trants failing the mental tests given on induction into the Army. 
4Sth in the precentage of population (25 years and older) with 
at least 4 years of high school. In spite of the low ratings in 
education, the records tend to show we are paying for more edu- 
cation then we receive. For instance, we rank No. 18 among the 
states in per capita expenditures for education. We rank No. :'. 
in the nation in the public school revenue furnished by the State 
as compared to percentage of personal incomes. It seems evident 
that we are paying for more education than our schools are pro- 
viding. 

A comparison of the educational history of Republican States 
with that of Democrat States during 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 Democratic rule. 

The Republican Party favors a program of incentives and teach- 
er selection to attract and hold superior teachers. Instructors 
should be highly trained for the areas in which they teach. Teach- 
ers 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 fit- 
ness in athletic programs, and less attention to spectator sports. 

We believe that students must attend classes regularly. Be- 
cause the Democrat Party has been unwilling to accept the re- 
sponsibility for adequate truancy laws, there are approximateh 
70,000 boys and girls absent from the class rooms each day our 
public schools are open. 

North Carolina Republicans, realizing the urgent need for more 
and better public school buildings and plants, propose that the 
State return to the counties 15% of sales and use tax collections 
to be used for this purpose. This program would elminate ex- 
pensive interest payments on bonds and would return some 20 
million annually to the counties. Within 10 years North Caro- 
lina would have one of the finest if not the finest school plant 
system in the nation. 



I 



Replki.icax Platiohai 205 

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 responsibili- 
ties. 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 Consti- 
tution, tradition, and conviction is a responsibility of parents, 
communities, and the 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 student and parent live. 

We are opposed to the present methods of selecting school 
boards in North Carolina. We favor the selection of all educa- 
tional boards simultaneously in Biennial, non-partisan elections 
by popular 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 allow 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. By refusing to use Republicans 
on local school boards the public school system is being deprived 
of approximately 30 to 40 per cent of the brain power within our 
State. 

HIGHER EDUCATION 

The Republican Party favors continued expansion of our system 
of Higher education in keeping with the steady increase of pop- 
ulation 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.

Believing the Community College is a sound solution for those 
who want such an education as it affords, but are financially un- 
able to bear the high cost in colleges or university, we favor the 
careful location of Community Colleges so that all sections of the 
State will be provided with this facility. We favor better finan- 
cial assistance from the State in capital outlay, especially in those 
sections where the indebtedness and tax rate will prohibit the 
establishment of a community college without greater state sup- 
port. 

We advocate allowing state supported colleges in diverse sec- 
tions of the state to offer masters degrees and doctorates in edu- 
cation in order that teachers may continue their work toward 
these degrees while they teach. 

We feel that, in any expansion of our system of higher educa- 
tion, the interests of the State's excellent private colleges should 
be given consideration. 

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

ELECTION LAWS 

If the people of our State are to have improvements in their 
election laws, it will be a result of the Republican Party and the 
Republican Party alone. After 60 years of Democratic rule the 
State's election laws are still the delight of the unscrupolous 
politician, being filled with unjust provisions and handy loop- 
holes. As each session of the Democratically controlled legis- 
lature passes with only minimal changes in the election laws, it 
becomes more and more apparent to the people of the State that 
the hope for free and more honest elections lies with the Repub- 
lican Party alone. 

The Republican Party reproves the party in power for its bi- 
ennial failure to correct the many faults of its election laws. It 
refuses to require periodical reregistration. It circumvents any 
actions to prevent ballot box abuses. It steadfastly upholds its 
complete domination of the election boards at every level. In 
some counties it refuses to allow the minority party to name its 
own judges. And in every respect it shows a continual lack of 
concern for truly representative government. 



Ri;iMi:i.i( A.N Pi.ahoijm 20& 

The Republican Party continues to advocate: 

1. The transfer of the control of elections from tlie Democratic 
Party to a system of non-partisan boards exercising a generally 
judicial function. The election officials should, therefore, be ap- 
pointed with the understanding that they represent the State of 
Xorth Carolina and not any political party. 

2. A statewide periodic reregistration. There is no better way 
of purging the registration books. At least 58 counties in Xorth 
Carolina have not had a new registration in the last 12 years. 
The Republican Party advocates a complete reregistration every 
ten years. 

3. A modern loose-leaf system of registration requiring caoh 
registrant to sign his name when registering to vote. 

4. The repeal of the absentee ballot law. The recent altera- 
tions in the absentee ballot laws grudgingly adopted by the Demo- 
cratic legislature has done little to dispell the abuses of these 
provisions. The only means for completely eliminating the flag- 
rant abuses of this law is to completely repeal the entire section. 

5. The removal of the so-called markers at each polling place. 
These markers no longer serve the function of assisting the voter 
in marking his ballot but instead they help the unscrupulous 
politician to mark the voters' ballots. 

6. The more widespread use of voting machines with the State 
sharing the cost. Voting machines would obviously result in more 
honest elections, eliminating the stuffed ballot boxes, false bot- 
tomed ballot boxes, marked ballots and similar frauds. 

7. Requiring the voter to sign a poll book before voting. Such 
action would deter many from voting illegally. 

We think it reprehensible that the citizens of this State were 
required to resort to the courts for the elimination of the loyalty 
oath because the Democratic controlled legislature continually 
defeated Republican attempts to repeal this oath in the legislature. 

The Republican Party endorses these and any improvements to 
the election laws which would provide more honest and free elec- 
tions. All just and truly representative governments are based 
on honest and free elections. It is upon these foundations that 
the Republican Party bases its goals.

HE ALKJNMENT OF SENATORIAL DISTRICTS 

The constitution of North Carolina is explicit in its mandate 
that each of the 50 State Senators should represent as nearly as 
may be an equal number of people. After ignoring the constitu- 
tion completely for 23 years the Democrats finally gave the people 
a semblance of constitutional conformity and this came only after 
an expensive special session of the legislature and on even more 
expensive general election in which the people defeated the Re- 
publican opposed "Little Federal Amendment". The Republican 
Party is proud of the fact the Republican legislators consistently 
introduced and supported the most equitable redistricting legis- 
lation. 

Even under the belated redistricting that we now have there 
are glaring inequities that should be remedied. We now have 
variation in Senatorial Districts of almost S3 thousand persons. 
In each instance the over represented far eastern and far western 
districts are the districts which are presently losing population. 
For this reason there will in the year 19 70 be variations between 
some districts of almost 117 thousand persons. The Piedmont 
still suffers from underrepresentation. 

( OXGHESSIOXAL REDISTRICTING 

The General Assenably of 1961 with the approval of the Gover- 
nor and over the protest of Republican Legislators redistricted 
the U. S. Congressional Districts without consideration for the 
people. Their sole purpose, seemed to be that of defeating the 
lone Republican Congressman, Charles Raper Jonas. Rather 
than defeat Rep. Jonas the Democrats succeeded in electing James 
Broyhill, another Republican. No political party can perpetuate 
itself by anxious and arbitrary methods of redistricting 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 their be- 
lief by redistricting the legislature that people are the servants of 
their political party. 

SPENDING AND TAXATION 

The spending and taxing policies of any government are a mat- 
ter of concern to citizens. The present fiscal policies and trends 



Ri:i'LI!l.l(AX PLAT1()I!\I 211 

of North Carolina are a matter of alarm! As the chart at the 
end of this section shows, spending per person has more than dou- 
bled since 1955 in the General Fund, it is up 50% since Governor 
Hodges' last budget! 

When Governor Sanford addressed the 19 6;'. Legislature, he 
urged them to "heed not the whispers of the timid", but in effect, 
to appropriate and spend bravely. In spite of Republican efforts 
to stem the tide, spend they did. 

Republicans belieA^e that North Carolinians want tax relief and 
spending cuts more than they want brave big spenders in Raleigh. 
The evidence is clear: 

A. The resentment against the Food Tax. 

B. The defeat of the 19 61 bond issues. 

C. The Republican victories in 1962. 

All these show that the people want less spending and less tax. 
Therefore, we stand on a program of tax relief, budgetary reform, 
and revised spending practices. 

Republicans Recommend: 

A. Tax Relief 

1. Replace Food Tax with a normal tax on alcohol and tobac- 
co, saving taxpayers $13,000,000 per year. 

2. Refund 15% of the sales tax collected, back to the coun- 
ties, giving the counties $20,000,000 per year for school 
building purposes. This will prevent another raise of 
property taxes, and provide a "pay-as-you-go" substitute 
for a statewide bond issue. 

3. $300 Income tax exemption for parents of college students. 

B. lliidgetary Keforiii 

1. Make the Advisory Budget Commission bi-partisan. 

2. Eliminate secret and closed door meetings of the Joint Ap- 
propriations Sub-Committee. People have a right to know 
how their money is being spent by tlieir legislators. 

3. Establish a Comptroller General as budgetary overseer — 
a people's watchdog — responsible to the legislature. 

C lietter Spending Practices 

1. Specific spending voted down by the people should not be

2. Surpluses (if there any more after this last spending 

spree) should be first considered for tax cuts and returned

."!. The rapid rise in spending as shown on the following chart 

cannot continue. Republicans want spending more in line 

with population growth and actual needs, not fads and 

frills, and it can be done. 

KFFICIENClf IN STATE ADMINISTRATION 

The state Government is now North Carolina's biggest business 
with an expenditure of over .$1,800,0U0,000.00 bi-annually for op- 
erations. 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 and the 
amount of $1.50. 000, 000. 00 over and above the taxation now im- 
I)osed. The State v)f North Carolina now employs over 70,000 
jjersons: it is al)solutely necessary and imperative that North Caro- 
lina have personnel policies coinniensurate with its responsibili- 
ties as an employer. 

The Rei)ublican Party advocates effective goveiiinient 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 responsi- 
biiity pin-pointed. 

:;. Governmental controls which reach into every facet of i)ur 
l)trsoiial and busintss life could be held to a minimum allowing 
private enterprise to have a free operation under clearly defined 
rules and regulations. 

4. The Governor of our State would become an executive in the 
iruest sense — thus eliminating the use of personal influence or 
appointments, indirect controls, and the use of the Executive Bud- 
get .Act as a means of accomplishing some semblance of admin- 
istration. 

\Vh believe that the tools necessary to accomplish the Republi- 
can objective of efficient a<lmlnistration of government are as 
follows: 



Ri-:publica>- Platfoum 213 

1. Authorization by tlie Legislature to study each individual 
agency of tlie State with tlie 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 Governor 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 Munici- 
palities 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 E3IPLOYEES 

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 of the Republican Party to enhance the position 
and security of State Employees. Republicans in the 1961 and 
1963 sessions of the General Assembly sponsored and supported 
legislation to that end; the Democrats in the 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. 

Republicans believe that State Employees should have pay 
scales and work loads commensurate with comparable employees 
working in private industry. This would necessarily mean a 4 0-

The recent convictions of public officials for corruption in the 
administration of our State Government is of great concern to the 
Republican Party. The expose points unerringly to the conclusion 
that after 60 years of power, and political organization tends to 
become lethargic and thus susceptible to this very situation. 



21 I Xdi: I II (' \i;ni.i \ A M \ \ i ai 

The fact that tlie present administration refuses to make piiljlif 
Sill reports on investigations into alleged corruption at Appa- 
laciiian State Teachers College, Western Carolina College and the 
North Carolina School for the Deaf at Morganton arouses the sus- 
picion of the Republican Party. Why do the Democrats fail to 
make their reports available even though in one instance prose- 
cution was based on them? We do not believe in this type of 
political cover up to protect party hacks and demand a full airing 
of all such investigations. 

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

SE( KKC V I\ {iOVKIl\MF;\T 

Tlie ilepublican Party believes that the citizens of Xorth Caro- 
lina have an absolute and unqualified right to know all of the 
answers concerning the affairs of state government, and that no 
l)erson or group of persons has the right to deny the people's ac- 
cess to meetings and deliberations of any l)ranch of their govern- 
ment. For this reason, Republicans oppose the practice of the 
Legislature in barring the news media from legislative committee 
meetings, particularly the Appropriations Sub-Committee meet- 
ings. In the past the Republcan members of the Legislature have 
voted against and fought against this secrecy. For the same rea- 
sons we are opposed to secret meetings now being held by the 
North Carolina State Banking Commission. Why does the Demo- 
crat majority insist on keeping the facts from the people? 
Thoughtful citizens should demand government ()])eii and above- 
board. 

KOADS AND HKiHW AVS 

Originally, the State Highway Commission was set upon a non- 
partisan basis and North Carolina's road system became one of 
the best. Recently, however, the opposition has made this Com- 
mission an integral part of its own political organization. We 
condemn the Democrat practice of replacing virtually every mem- 
ber of the Highway Commission each four years as a reward for 
party loyalty. We maintain that this constant reshuffling of aj)- 
pointed personnel effectively prevents a long range, co-ordinated 
program of highway construction and maintenance. The Repub- 



Ri:jm r.i.K A.\ Pi.ai ioiim 215 

licau Party advocates and insists upon non-partisan Road Com- 
missioners and the hiring of personnel for our road construction 
and maintenance based upon qualification instead of political 
loyalty. 

We believe that roads should be built on a pay-as-you-go meth- 
od This can be done without tax increases by using the present 
gasoline tax that is now being used to pay off Scott Road Bonds 
when this money becomes available in the near future. Further 
funds for road building could be obtained by effecting economics 
in the Highway Department and ending the diversion of highway 
funds. 

Republicans believe that a Commission should be established 
to study the advisability of using private contractors to maintain 
public roads on a contract basis. 

HIGHWAY SAFETY 

The Republican Party has long advocated a sensible program 
of strict law enforcement in North Carolina, especially as it per- 
tains to our roads and highways. The inadequacy of the Highway 
Safety Program is sadly and clearly shown by the fact that each 
year more than 1200 persons die on the roads of the State. We 
have one of the largest fatality rates in the entire country. Hab- 
itual speeders, drunk drivers, and racers have no right to use 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. 

JUDICIARV 

The administration of justice in North Carolina has needed 
sensible modernization for many years. In the 1961 session of 
the General Assembly the unanimous support of Republican mem- 
bers resulted in the submission to the people of constitutional 
amendments to pave the way for court improvement. The people 
indicated by their overwhelming approval of these amendments 
that they wanted reform. The 1963 Session saw almost no activ- 
ity towards implementing of these approved amendments. There 
were even brags by some of the Democrat members of the Legis- 
lature that there would be no implementation. The Republican 



210 North Cakoi.ixa Manual 

Party pledges an all out effort to bring about uniformity of the 
lower court systems of North Carolina and the general updating 
of our court procedures in order to ini])rove and expedite the ad- 
ministration of justice. The Democrats have demonstrated bad 
taith bv opposing Republican sponsored legislation designed to 
allow oi)en election of Judges in 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. 

USE OF STATE FACILITIES IJV THOSE Al)\ < X XT! \(. 
OVERTHROW OF OUK GOVERNMENT 

The Republican Party of North Carolina is unalterably opptjsed 
to the use of State Buildings and facilities, as a forum, by per- 
sons known to advocate the overthrow of the Constitution or 
Government of the United States or the State of North Carolina 
by force or violence. 

BANKING 

:\lodern 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. 

AGRK ULTURE 

A healthy agricultural economy is necessary to the realizaiiuu 
of a healthy economy throughout this entire state. The Republi- 
can Party admonishes the opposition to consider the plight of the 
fai'mer after 60 years under the Democrat Party. Today, taiin 
income is only 43% of the average of non-farm incomes — .$9t;r).(tO 
campared to .$2,216.00; and in North Carolina, the average farm- 
er 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 n 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 pro- 



Republican Platforji 217 

ductioii au<l more encoui'agement of co-operative type in lieu of 
state owned, marketing centers. 

We believe that the State Government should actively seek to 
obtain more food processing industries for North Carolina and 
encourage the expansion of present processing plants by the use 
of tax incentives such as faster depreciation of plants and equip- 
ment. 

CONSEKVATIOX AND DEVELOPMENT 

The natural course of events — basic resources of intelligent 
labor, excellent climate and location — is bringing limited new in- 
dustry to this state, but our percentage rate of growth continues 
to be one of the lowest in the South. We believe new industry 
goes where it is invited, and remains where it is made welcome. 
To accomplish this, we advocate a dynamic aggressive Conserva- 
tion and Development Department harnessing the energies not 
only of the entire State Government, but enlisting the assistance 
of private business groups and executives. To attract this indus- 
try we advocate development of port facilities by private enter- 
prise, reorganization of the corporate tax structure, and remodel- 
ing of the antiquated laws under which the Utilities Commission 
operates, so that equitable rates for utilities are imposed. We 
believe the Department should be under the leadership of success- 
ful business-oriented executives qualified to meet interested in- 
dustrialists to discuss mutual problems on an equal footing. We 
believe the Conservation and Development Department should 
pay special attention to developing industry in those sections of 
the State where unemployment prevails to bring about a l)etter 
balance betw^een agriculture and industry. Nevertheless, while 
vigorously urging new businesses to move to our State, we must 
not neglect, but rather should grant every reasonable support 
and encouragement to the established home industries which have 
been furnishing employment, paying taxes, and in general con- 
tributing to the welfare of the State. We deplore discriminatory 
concessions to new industries at the expense of the old ones. 

TvAROR 

The record of the North Carolina Republican Party on the iim s- 
tion of minimum wage legislation is unmistakenly clear. We take 



21S X<ii;iii ('a};oi.i.\a .Mantai. 

pride in knowing tliat Republicans in the lf»61 Genera! Assembly 
were largely responsible for the extension of the inininiuni wage 
to ai)proxiniately 20,000 more laboring men and women in this 
State. Without the support of the Republicans this legislation 
was doomed. The Republicans in the 1968 Session worked active- 
ly for a $1.00 per hour minimum wage law. When it became ap- 
parent that even with Republican support that the ?l.(Ml minimum 
could not be enacted Republican members actively supjxirted and 
voted for the $.85 bill that was finally enacted. The Republican 
Party is not yet satisfied I Even now. the average per capita in- 
come for laborers in North Carolina is 4 4th among the 5 states. 
Our average unemployment compensation is among the lowest in 
the Nation. The Republican Party is connnitted to the belief that 
laboring men and women are entitled to the fruits of their ability 
and effort, and we earnestly request that the Democrat Party con- 
sider a change in its attitude which has placed our laboring )ieo- 
ple in bondage to low incomes during their 60-year reign. 

The housing and sanitary conditions of "migrant labor'" in 
North Carolina during liarvest seasons is deplorable. We recom- 
mend protective legislation for these unfortunate jiersons. 

IXTEHXAL WATER UKSOl HCKS 

The Republican Party of North Carolina believes the need for 
conserving water is of such importance that water resources de- 
velopment should be put on a par with agricultural and industrial 
development. While water in-oblems 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 
Republican Party of North Carolina advocates that increased eni- 
pliasis be placed on fully developing the water resources of the 
State to meet forseeable State demands for decades to come. W'r 
must immediately get down to the task of systematic planning for 
the best use of the State's water resources in an orderly and ra- 
tional way. 

HOME RULE 

The Republican Party is alarmed by the tendency of centraliza- 
tion of government powers in Raleigh and Washington. We be- 



Repiblicax PLAT^Ol:.^[ 219 

lieve 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 19 63 General Assembly was of purely 
local concern without statewide ramifications. We advocate home 
rule and the return to counties and municipalities those responsi- 
bilities for government which are purely of local significance and 
of no concern to the State as a whole. 

( ONSTITUTIOXAIi REFORM 

An integral part of responsible government is a constant vigil 
and effort lo remove archaic road blocks, in the form of anti- 
quated laws, which impede the social, economic and moral prog- 
ress of 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 Con- 
stitution is bent and tattered not only by time alone, but because 
of the undue and oppressive weight and multifarious amendments. 
The Republican 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 men- 
tal 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 
minimum 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 efforts to making North Carblina health 
environment the safest in which to live, work and ])lay. 



lil'll XoKIll Cakoi.i.na .Ma.mai, 

.More sixcilically. we pledge ourselves to give immediate atten- 
tion Id solviiii; th<> following important problems: 

1. I'ollution of water, soil and air. Growing population and in- 
<lnsirial 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 dan- 
ger to tlie health of the people. Immediate correction of these 
conditions, with intelligence and imagination, is imperative. A 
far-seeing, co-ordinated, state-wide plan, in co-operation with 
analogous projects in neighboring states, needs to be developed 
and carrie<l out without delay to insure purity of surface and 
ground water, and the water in our water recreation areas. 

2. Programs for makin.g more and better use of the skills of 
senior citizens. 

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

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

5. We advocate the establishment of a cancer research division 
within the Department of Public Health. One of the purposes 
of this division would be to isolate and eliminate the harmful 
elements, if any there be, in cigarette smoke. 

PUBLJC 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 abuses 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. 



RKI'riU.ICA-N Pr.ATlOKM 221 

Uuder the Democrat Administration, welfare payments to in- 
viduals in tliis State are the lowest of any of the 50 states. The 
result has been too little for too many recipients. The Republican 
Party believes that stricter enforcement of requirements for parti- 
cipation in public welfare with more adequate assistance to those 
entitled to receive is essential. 

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

That there is poverty in North Carolina is undeniable. Gover- 
nor Sanford was quoted recently as saying "we measured poverty 
in dollars and found that 37% of North Carolina families are 
caught by this definition." The Democrat Party has thus indicted 
itself. Thi6 is their record and they must defend it. If past his- 
tory is an indication they will be out to "pick these pockets of 
poverty of votes by grandiose promises of better things to come". 
We Republicans believe that the record should speak for itself. 

COMMERCIAL. FISHERIES — SALT WATER RESOURCES 

As this division of the North Carolina Department of Conser- 
vation and Development has functioned in the past, little con- 
structive emphasis has been placed upon either of the funda- 
mental functions of conservation or development of North Caro- 
lina fishery resources. This lack of emphasis and resulting fail- 
ure in its primary purposes is partly attributable to unnecessary 
emphasis 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 
become a matter of collecting taxes (from the fishing industry) 
with which to pay for law enforcement (the tax collectors, gen- 
erally, are also the law enforcement officers). Many of the laws 
enforced are merely laws levying taxes (or licenses). Thus, this 
agency is, in effect, a "policital perpetual motion machine," ac- 
complishing only its continuation. 

The Republican Party advocates the assumption by the Depart- 
ment of Revenue of tax collecting functions of the Commercial 



Ill Xouiii ('ai;oi.i.\a NlAMAi. 

Kishcrits IJivisioii which is i)resently handled h\ tlie Department 
1)1' Conservation and the North Carolina Dppartnient 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 ta.xed. 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 
<luly 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 
conservation practices can be established and that valuable contri- 
butions lo the economies of tlie coastal areas of North Carolina 
can be made. We, furthermore, believe that these accomplishments 
will inure to the general benefit of all North Carolinians. 

Once relieved of these two 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 develo])nient of the fishing and 
related industries. 

W^e believe that the Division of Commercial Fisheries should 
be a separate department of government wliich will place added 
emphasis upon research, seafood processing and marketing in an 
attempt to raise the economy of coastal North Carolina and that 
this new division should also place added emphasis on the develop- 
ment of the sports fishing industry in North Carolina. 

STATE POHTS 

The North Carolina Republican Party believes that the North 
Carolina port facilities at Alorehead City and Wilmington repre- 
sent the gateway to ocean commerce in this State and afford a 
vital transportation artery for industry in the State and we ad- 
vocate that major emphasis be placed upon our State ports in 
the areas of advertisement, promotion and capital improvements. 

Wv' believe that these facilities should continue to operate on 
a self-supporting basis in the tradition of free and competitive 
enterprise. -

WATER AVAYS 



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 be- 
lieves this development should be encouraged. Therefore, the 
following policies are advocated: 

1. That the State inaugurate a politically free Waterways Pa- 
■trol 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 traffic and water borne traffic, it adopt a policy of in- 
creasing the clearances under all fixed and draw-span bridges over 
coastal waterways. 

INI.AAJ) LAKES AND RIVEKS 

The Republican Party recognizes the rights of all persons to en- 
joy inland lakes and rivers. We also recognize the dangers and 
problems involved when the same streams and lakes are used by 
different persons for different forms of recreation. We propose 
statewide regulation for the protection and control of boaters, 
swimmers, skiers, fishermen and divers while using our inland 
public waters. 

RIGHTS OF CITIZENSHIP 

Under the proper interpretation of the philosophy of govern- 
ment that our forefathers dreamed of and we seek to bring into 
realization, we, the Republican Party, believe it to be fundament- 
ally true that the will of the majority ought to prevail within the 
framework of the Constitution. 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 unwillingness to recog- 
nize rights of any one or any groups except themselves. 

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

CONC'IASION 

Tlie future of our State is bright, for tlie jjeople are realizing 
tlie advantages and necessity of a healthy two-party system of 
government. The shackles and heavy yoke of oppressive and leth- 
argic one-party system are rapidly being disregarded in North 
Carolina. Control of the government is being returned to the peo- 
ple, 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.
