There is being spent in North Carolina this j'ear, accord' ing to Mr. Everett, twenty-five mil - i : jn schools; two years from jmw thiHwvr' Superintendent Pous state- State will be spending sixty-ve times ,ment shows that he has been as much on the school system than living no stones unturned in frying was baing spent unrfer ttie adminis-! l? caPture Peacock. He was located , tration of the rjreat Chas. B. Aycock. 1 in ti, moff ,t ,mj a , t fi,p tho revenue roads, he called attention to the fact that when the sixty-five million dollar bond issue is spent the state will have 4,006 miles of hard surface roads and roads of other substantial construction. In addition JJiere are in the state a thousand miles of good roads that have not cost the state a cent. Mr, Everett stressed the .point that the Democratic .party intended to carry out its pledges ior the construc tion of oed roads to the letter, -and in line with this intention must -build the road from Pittsboro o Asheboro. He pointed out that the state last year collected more than eight mil lions of .dollars from automobile and gasoline tax, every dollar of which is being used ior the .paying off road bonds and maintenance of the high ways. A million and a half f this amount was deposited as a sinking fund to setire the bonds as 'they fall due.' This year the .state department anticipates a .revenue, of 110,000,000 from autemebile and gasoline taxes. These roads are feeing constructed and paid ior without taking one cent of state tax Jkem the pockets of the people of Horth Carolina. The entire country is aliased at the progress the state eon been snaking in -road build ing and in the .manner in which they , are betRg jaaid for -without 'taxing the people. Turning ' 3is afttentioa to health matter, thespeaker stated that North Carolin last year spent 3600,000 ia the interest ".ef the hearth cof the peo ple of, the state, chiefly in the pre vention oi disease. As a consequence the death rate has been reduced to the lowest, and babies save a better chance te jjrow sip to manhood and womanhood than in aqy other state in the union. Mr. Everett. stressed the fact that in the matter of taxafam the Demo cratic party lias always dealt fairly with the people of the state. As the activities of the state government widens and enlarges, of course, more money is needed, but notwithstanding this two million people in the state pay no tax for state purposes. This two aiirlian pays no interest - on state bonda, except on road "bonds and this is paid by those who drive automo biles and ase (he sood aoads. The speaker defended the exempt ion of f oneign stacks fnom taxation, argsaag faat a tax on the 'physical value of the property and a tax on the stock wold se douVe taxation. He Sloatrated hit point Vy showing that m doable taxation wvuld be like taxing a tail's farm on tts value as appraised and then paying a tax also on the Tame aamed n the deed to the property, a his opinion this ex emption of foreign stocks from taxa tion win tnerease the number f man ufacturing plants in the state, and also the somber of retired wealthy business men who. wTTl malre their home In the state. . This wCl mean not only more manufacturing vlants, but also many thousands of dollars these wealthy men wfll spend la the state and will mean a source of reve nue to the state in the way of In heritance taxes. ,.n Mr. Everett, although not entirely recovered from s recent Illness, spoke distinctly and convincingly and held the attention of the eodlence from , the beginning of hie speech to the tad. -" On account of the incllment weather conditions bis aodiene was not large.

On thia point uie public ana the industry ate in agreement. The evolution is not yet complete, but to its progress the events of 1922 and 192$ have contributed notably. They amount to an admission of the fact that the industry cannot realize its greatest possibilities under the former spectacular inancial methods and that it jnus$ .inevitably conform to normal standards and requirements of business. A settling-down process aas been taking place during the past two years, resulting ui the establishment of three fundamental principles: first, that production costs cannot be en larged indefinitely without straining the financial' basis of production te the breaking; point; second, that sound financing methods are indispensable for the progress of the industry; and third, that public approval and good will are its most valuable assets.
