Feb. 6.�?friday�?Ts session of the election Law committee of the House produced some of the Hest debate of the current legislative session with member opening up in Earnest and talking straight from the shoulder. For example there a the statement of Wayne Frank Taylor Quot there has been no clamor for repeal of the principle of Absentee voting Quot an Angle which has been generally overlooked in ail discussions. Odu mulls differentiation Between primaries and general elections was a thing of oratorical and argumentative Beauty however unconvincing it May have been to Many. He based his conclusions on the Quot duality of control Over general elections and the Lack of such control in primaries. Quot dual supervision is the mud Sill on which our whole election system is he said. Quot we have it in the Genera election but we cannot possibly have it in the wherefore he argued we ought to keep the Absentee ballot for general elections and abolish it in primaries. To the Raleigh Academy of Medicine at it meeting a Day or so ago. He suggested adding 50 cents to the Price of every automobile tag to create a fund to insure payment of Hospital Bills of people injured in motor accidents. When or. Long Isnit doctoring. He represents Halifa county in the state Senate. With so much clamor for reduced Cost of License tags the Public will not take kindly to the idea of a 50-cent additional for hospitals nor for any extra charge to insure payment for property damage. Some form of compulsory insurance May come in time but this legislature Isnit looking for any new ways to offend people. The mull argument sounded Fine hut Wilson s Larry Moore went a Long Way toward demolishing it with the Brief comment Quot we May kid ourselves Here but we can to kid the people of North Carolina. If we abolish the Absentee in the primary and not in the general elections they Are going to conclude we think its All right to steal from republicans but not from each and Rupert Pickens of Guil Foid pointed out that Quot dual control Quot is More a theory than a fact sine the democratic registrar controls every step of Absentee voting except actual counting of the ballots. $ or. Tom Long of Roanoke rapids May not take his idea to the Senate Bill Hopper but he started folks talking by a suggestion made committee lits will stand. They Point out that every legislature Bias such an Quot Economy Quot flurry about this stage of the session and that later most of the budget recommendation Are restored. The Money raisers did not have As interesting week As the Money spenders. Some wag might remark that they Seldom do. The finance committee passed Over for the most part controversial matters and spent the time approving Section Over which there was Little disagreement. The week ended with a rather general feeling that Little change would he made in the total Revenue by actions of the finance committee to Date and with the Hope rather than the definite belief that some increases might lie found next week. Break in plan taken together action of the finance and appropriations committees indicate a reasonably close balance of the budget if intangibles and anti diversion done to break up the plan. The administration wage hour Bill and the so called Quot estates Bill Quot have been reviewed in this correspondence. Another Bill hitting the Hopper last week which might be far reaching in effect was senator Separk s Repealer of common Law rights to royalties on phonograph records and other Quot canned it is designed to Stop collection of fees for the Public use of such record but May result in taking the records off the Market in this state.

The distinguished statesman and the daughter of the Confederate chieftain Are buried near each other in Warren county. The Capitol Rotunda looked like a rogues gallery Friday.

Of the window. Petroleum interests Are charged with financing the lobby against diversion. Or. Bryant asked the finance committee at its last meeting to defer action on the item levying 6 per cent As a franchise tax on utilities until he could consider an amendment including dealers in Petroleum products. These Are simple statements of fact. What they mean depends upon the interpreter. Most interesting House session last week was devoted to consideration of the Senate Quot indecent exposure the 1935 Assembly passed an act intended to make it illegal for a person to indecently expose his private parts in Public. A slip of language left the Law without any such Force. Under it any Man or woman might St 14 i Stark naked and Parade up and Down Street so Long As there was not another person similarly exposed in sight. Senators Prince and Cogburn passed an amendment which they thought cured this but when it came to the House or. Page decided it might fix it so the men in dressing rooms at his Lake would be violating the Law. Attempts to remedy that almost made it so a Man and his wife would violate the Law Iii undressed in the same room. So the whole thing went to a judiciary committee to see just what it does Means and if possible Why. The Bill to prohibit the Federal government from Selling Deer out of Pisgah National Forest almost got an unfavourable report from the conservation committee because representative Clegg feared it would give the state title to ail tile rabbits and Quail in Moore county.
