It was understood that Rocky mount had issued a invitation to the association to hold its convention there next year. A. J. Maxwell pays tribute to earnestness. Intelligence patriotism of legislature a poetic appreciation of North Carolina the land and its people was delivered to the rotary club Here today by a hard headed statesman economist Revenue commissioner a. J. Maxwell. He spoke to an assigned subject and held under closest control the attention of an audience made up of members of the club and others invited to attend. Or. Maxwell was presented by Cape m. Waynock and immediately told his audience something of the prospects for completing the legislative session now in Progress at Raleigh. He said a week would suffice to bring the lawmakers to adjournment. He based the estimate on the fact that the great controversial issues of appropriations and Revenue Bills Are out of the Way. He paid a tribute to the earnestness intelligence and patriotism of the present legislature. In i hit a r v m k Asi r is for a few minutes he discussed a development of the week which enabled the budgetary measures to slip through easily the unexpected Richness of the returns from the 1938 income tax levies. Conservatively estimating the Revenue As Likely to show a 20 per cent drop Over the previous year the commissioner watched the Federal figure for the state drop 30 per cent and the states flow in diminished not More than ten per cent. He stated that the Only explanation which seems to fit is that the conditions in North Carolina business have been better than the National average. While on Public fiscal matters. Or. Maxwell said he recently looked into the records to compare 70 years ago in tar Heel government with the present. He found that the total state spending in 1879 was $24,000 a year or about the amount the state spends daily now sundays excepted. The largest item in that Public budget of three score and ten years ago was $34,164 spent for wooden legs. Now. The commissioner stated our $164,000,000 budget for two years is tremendous but about half of it g Oes to roads and 68 per cent of the other half goes to support of the schools. Less than five per cent goes to actual operating expenses of state government in ill its branches. He thinks that is a record of frugal management among the 46 states. Beginnings getting More directly to his subject or. Maxwell spoke of the beginning of White colonization Here As based upon a careful study of climatic and other advantages. When sir Walter Raleigh a scouts came Over to pick the strategic Point for beginning colonization the Knightly promoter had the Queens warrant to Lodge his colonists anywhere in the Western world not already occupied by christians. That was virtually carte Blanche except for Spanish Florida. Naturally the scouts looked for Ideal conditions and or. Maxwell referred to the report made to Raleigh respecting North Carolina which was described As a the Good Liest land under the canopy of a chamber of Commerce or a state advertiser would he put to it to find stronger language the speaker suggested t he thinks the description Apt and accurate but he pointed to some failures of the people to make the most of the natural chances. For instance with a climate and other conditions ideally suited to animal husbandry the state raises Only 66 per cent of its pork and lard 25 per cent of its beef 4 2 per cent of its Mut i ton. 59 per cent of its chickens land eggs and 33 per cent of its milk. Progress in that Field is j indicated and or. Maxwell referred to a new packing House i established by one of the big companies in Eastern North Caro a Lina and a milk depot by one of the great processes in the pied-1 Mont As moves in the right direct i Tiona the direction of an easier i Market for surpluses. Rich in Kohol in is Rich in agricultural possibilities land in Timber standing and growling North Carolina be. Is to or. Maxwell far from the class Flea i Tion which would make it part of the nation number one economic problem. Into a pet subject of his. Went the speaker As he deplored the i Lark of emphasis on the state s j history and its True constituency in the Public schools. He held up j a copy of d. H. Hills condensed history of the state and said it. With All its Patent Inadequacy is the one state history Book among i the text books of North Carolina. I he pointed eloquently to some of its Short coming. After the meeting principal Lambeth of the i Junior High school privately As j j sure or. Maxwell that the schools j Here have other historical mater Tai about North Carolina which they Are using freely or. Maxwell referred Ortance of Tran Portal ties and he ascribed the Gross of the state for g j to the shortage of such hampered by a danger line on the East and High mountains on the West the transportation of goods and people was slow and punishing.
