WkEREAS, it becomes the duty of -the Governors of the several

form all acts and services necessary to accomplish the effective and
; complete registration of all those required to register on his second
registration day: i t
NOW, THEREFORE, I, J. Melville Broughton, Governor of the
State of North Carolina, in pursuance of the authority conferred upon
me in the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940 and in the proc
lamation of the President of the United States, and by virtue of the
power vested in me as Governor of the State of North Carolina,' do
proclaim the following: ' :
1. That .Tuesday. lulv 1. 1941. is hereby designated a,s 5ECONI3
REGISTRATION DAY. V
2. That everv male citizen of the United States who resides-in the
State of NoVth Carolina and every male alien residing "in North Caro
lina (other than persons excepted by Section 5 (a) of the Selective
Training and Service Act of 1940 or by Section 208 of the Coast Guard
Auxiliary and Reserve Act of 194rwho are already in some branch of
military service) who, on or before July 1, 1941, and subsequent to
October 1,6, 1940, .shall have attained the twenty-first anniversary of
his birth, is required to present hirhself for and submit to registration
at his duly designated registration place between the hours of -7:00
A. M. and 9:00 P. M. on July 1, 1941..
3. Persons subject to this registration shall register at the office of
the local board having jurisdiction over the area of their permanent
residence, or at such place as may be designated by said local board.
If a person required to. register is on registration day so far removed
from the . place of his residence that he cannot, ' except at great ex
pense and inconvenience, return to his home to register, he may pre
sent himself for and submit to registration at the office of the near
est local board. Special provisions' will be made for the registration of
those who, on account of sickness or other causes beyond their control,
are unable to present themselves for registration at the duty designated
place on registration day.
4. This registration shall be in accordance' with Selective' Service
Regulations. Every person subject to registration, under the Presi
dent's proclamation, is required by the law itself to familiarize himself
with the rules and regulations governing registration and to comply
therewith. Severe penalties are provided for those who neglect or re
fuse to register. . v ' ,
5. I call upon all employers of labor in the State to arrange for their
employees who are required to register to be released from work on
registration day for a sufficient length of time to enable them to dis
charge' their duty of registering. And I call upon all State, County
a,nd Municipal agencies to cooperate in this regard.
The people of North Carolina have responded nobly to every call for
service heretofore made upon them. We take pride in the fact that
. this State has been singularly free of recalcitrance, malingering and
subversive activities. More than 450,000 of our young men marched tip
to the places set apart for registration and registered o,n. October 16,
1940, with hardly a murmur of dissatisfaction or complaint. I feel that
those who arc required to register on this second registration day will
do so in the same spirit and good will. North Carolina has never
failed to do her full, duty in any crisis and will not fail now.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, J. MELVJLLE BROUGHTON,
Governor of North Carolina, have signed and caused the
Great Seal to be affixed hereto, in our City of Raleigh,
this eighteenth day of June, in the year of our Lord one
thousand nine hundred and forty-one atftd in the one hun
dred sixty-fifth vear ?f ,ur American Independence.

ligion along with the machanics
of .his factories which employ over
2.000 people, Mr. LeTourneau has
said : - ' .- ".
TThere are two things I like to
do. One is to design machinery,
turn on the power and see it work;
the other is to tell people about
the power of the Gospel and see
it work in their lives.
"Whenever I see a , mechanism,
be it great or small, crude or. re
fined, the thought comes to me
that somewhere some mechanic has
put time and thought into that
machine. So when I look at cre
ation, I know that somewhere there
must be a Creator.: I have dis
covered that the man who designs
and 'builds a machine generally
knows more about how to fix it
than anyone else. So God, the
Creator Master Mechanic who de
signed and built these bodies and
minds of ours knows how to fix

Will July 4th Bring
Death On The Highways?
With North Carolina already
well on its way toward the worst
traffic accident record in its his
tory, the Fourth of July weekend
this year looms as a potentially
murderous three-day period on the
streets and highways of this state.
the Highway Safety Division warn
ed this week.
Ranald Hocutt, director of the
division, pointed out that the cele
brat ion of Independence Day al
ways brings about abnormal traf
fic conditions which result in many
fatal accidents. Six persons were
killed in this state last July 4.
"This year, however, we may
expect a heavier traffic toll than
usual because of the fact that the
Fourth fails on a Friday, and
thousands of people will take ad
vantage of the long weekend holi
day to make motor trips," he said.
'Then, too, the general traffic
situation is much more acute this
year. Already traffic deaths in
North Carolina are running around
50 per cent above last year. This,
together with the Fourth of July
celebration and vacation travel,
threatens to bring the greatest July
traffic death toll in the history
of motor vehicle."
The safety director pessimistic
ally stated that he fears a toll of
15 to 20 deaths from traffic acci
dents in this state during Friday,
Saturday and Sunday, July 4-5-6.
"Think of it," he continued, "15
to 10 of the worst tragdies that
can befall us threaten to mar
joyous nonaay unless every per
son who drives, makes it a per
sonal and constant responsibility
not to have an accident and not
to cause others to have one."
This shameful situation need
not be!" he declared. "Human ac
tionsactions that we can control
are basic cause of nearly all our
fatal accidents. I appeal to the
motorists of this state 'to exercise
a- rigid control over these actions
thoughtlessness, carelessness, and
recklessness not only during the
weekend of the Fourth but through
out the remainder of the' year."
