High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 6, 1939, High Point, North Carolina Monday March 6. 1930i he High Point Enterprise Piedmont Center of Industry Fugh Point North Carolina Page the most critical week of session opens in general Assembly today Revenue Bill will arouse controversy 4 Early expected of measure g Al mixed without great changes Enterprise Bureau sir Walter Motel 111 til Vin xxx Mill Raleigh March 6. North Carolina s general Assembly today begins the most critical week of its 19 59 session. With the highly controversial Revenue Bill to be threshed out in committee of the whole House almost anything can happen Between now and saturday. The legislators can decide to enact a Money Bill about As it came from the finance committee and thereby put adjournment sine die on the Calendar for a comparatively near Date or they can kick Over the traces upset the precarious budget balance Ami turn the session into a go As you please and stay As Long As you like affair. Rebel there were faint but distinct Rumbler of impending showers of Wrath and indignation Over the Revenue Bill As last week ended and House refused to Trail Doc Lely along behind its leaders in racing through the 400-Page Hill without its members having had time to read and inwardly digest some of its provisions. Nevertheless there int now on the horizon any a such lowering Cloud As would presage a Tornado Cyclone or other disturbance of unusual intensity. There Are plenty of objections to plenty of Revenue Bill provisions but there does t seem to be any cohesive group of sufficient tenacity of purpose and strength enough to do More than snipe spitefully at individual sections. All of which indicates that before the week is Over the Revenue Bill will have been considered and reported by the committee of the whole. It would be somewhat though not stunningly Sui prising if there is time left thereafter to put the measure through the two necessary Roll Call votes needed to Send it to the Senate. My miss fight by a queer twist of circumstance the Assembly is Likely to escape what would in different Case be the toughest Battle of them ally the matter of levying a sales tax on Basic building materials. The committee leadership and the administration started out with firm steadfast purpose to enact this Section which ire estimated to be Worth $400,000 a year in Revenue but despite pressure of the severest sort of i chairmen were never Able to get the joint finance group to act Quiesce. As a result the administration leaders Are now not Only stopped from themselves proposing to put Back this provision in the Bill but they can t even to openly a a Nice to those who might pro pop it. It is now their duty to support the Bill they piloted out to the floor. It is. Of course conceivable that under outwardly tremendous pressure fro in Loc a i units the House might he prevailed upon to upset the go to division of intangibles now proposed by the committee in which Case the leaders might feel themselves free to urge again the building Materia Levy on the plea of Quot necessity brought about through upset of the Baline resulting from intangible changes a possibility this appears to he Little More than a possibility certainty not a probability. Elsewhere along the line the prospects for a pulse tingling Battle Are somewhat Remote Glamor is forgotten when a Deb crams for a Junior league exam terrible Nightmare slaying is revealed by suicide note Debutante candidates for the Junior league listening to one of the Many lectures they must attend before their final examination.

A there i has t been time since its introduction to make any positive predictions of its Fate but there Are indications that the teachers retirement measure dropped into the House Law making machinery Friday will Start a real Battle in the general Assembly. There Are several facts too. Which make its enactment not at All beyond the Bounds of possibility. To begin with. It has the right sponsors to give it a Chance. Such legislators As Victor Bryant Gregg Cherry and Hugh Horton do not just casually up and introduce Bills i they know Are doomed to defeat. Any Bill that bears their stamp of approval starts with something in its favor. Then it is recalled that some weeks before the Assembly convened Joie Warren Hie shot of the n. C. Education association said that of All the things for which the teachers Are contending. Retirement is the most important. The Cape fear Valley author i it proposed by representative Lacy Mcbryde for his projected Hydro electric giant i Eastern North Carolina would be rather unusual in its members terms. There would hell of them appointed to serve for one two three and so Forth up toll years thus the term of Only one member would expire each year.

Of by any Chance this sentiment should Ever crystallize under really competent leadership so far totally lacking then storm warnings could be hoisted and ail hands piped on deck to Man the pumps. Strongest efforts to insert new and better Money raising sections in i he Revenue Bill Are Likely to be made by those who would hike to a bigger appropriations for departments agencies or activities in which they Are interested. For instance those who want bigger salaries for school teachers will be practically forced to fight for bigger revenues than the current Bill provides and the same thing goes for those who oppose any Cut in the state advertising fund reduced from $125 too to $90,000 for each year of the coming biennium and for those who would like to to a a third hooting Madison practical politicians hold on to present system of a markers la Henry xxx Elk i la Enterprise Bureau sir Walter hotel Raleigh March most religious Fervour Ste Day afternoon.

If is trite that the House has passed and sent to the Senate a measure which abolishes the Absentee voting Law for primaries and which throws multiple Quot lifeguards around the Absentee for general elections but there seems no wild Rush on the part of Appet Chi my r leaders and members to carry through with the tither halt of the legislative action needed to make this Law. The House tinder the spell of very practical politicians who want to cling to every possible advantage Given by control of election machinery has so far refused to Pas a measure designed to Cornet abuses of the nor.

A number of these dealt with establishing the cleavage Between the Union headed by Martin and the Cio. In county men going sectional High school tournament Here and fort Knox.

The dead Are James Tranter 77 John King 45, town marshal and Carl Cou Lees or something if the Assembly be 32. A1 of Shoals Connell is still in session.

The Quot unfair sales act which a Sandy Graham put through the Senate without a murmur of opposition in t getting by the House so easily. In fact some House in tubers say that senators have asked them to vote against it. Axing that they passed if just to please a former president of their body. If it Wasny to for Quot playing politic with human misery Quot the mouse boys would pass it too. And Vave it up to the Senate to do the explaining. Present indications Are that the representatives Are going to take the responsibility seriously and apply the Well known axe. Just what can be done about it nobody knows right now. But the chances Are that a commission will he appointed to study the problem of Swain county the county had More than half of its taxable Val j ties taken off the books w Hen it was included in Ujj Monte National Park the tax list dropped from $13,000,000 Down to $5,500,000.
