Raleigh, Jan. 2.‘i (By the Associated

a standstill this morning while members
es the general assembly and a number of
state officials attended the dedication ex
ercises at Manning Hall, the University :

Numbers of them were accompanied by ,
A few remained in Raleigh.
The weels were to be set in motion i
again tonight when the Senate was to ,
meet at 7:30 o’clock and the House at 8
Two important measures are likely to
be introduced tonight. One by Senator '
A. F. Sams would amend the constitu
tion with reference to canvassing the
vote of the state following each general
election. The other, forecast by mem
bers of the state game league, would in- ,
elude a code of statewide game laws ,
and place their enforcement with the j
State Fisheries Commission, the name of (
which would be changed to the State ,
Came and Jfish Commission.
It js not understood who will intro- ,
duoe this latter proposed measure, but j
Seantcr Sams has publicly anounced that (
he will probably tonight introduce ,his .
proposed amendment to the constitution. |
“When the constitution was drawn,”
he said, “there was no election board,
and it naturally became the duty of the ]
general assembly to canvass the vote and (
declare ’state officers elected.
“Now that we have an election bonrd
it is unnecessary for its work to' be du
plicated. by the general assembly. If -J
the measure which I propose to intro
duce is acted favorably upon and the .
constitution amended as a result, the
next governor of North Carolina and his .
successors can be inaugurated on the op
ening day of each legislative session or
earlier if so desired. Then he can ap- !
pear at once before the law-making body
with his recommendations and there will
be no delay in getting down to business.’' 1

eclipse will be very large, nearly total,
in some of the largest cities including
Boston. Providence, Albany. Philadelphia.
Baltimore. Washington and Chicago. As
far south a«, New Orleans, and as far
west as St. Louis and Omaha, the par

In most of the central states the sun
wiil rise more or less eclipsed; but from
Lake Erie eastward; all of the eclipse
will take place after the sun has risen. -
In New York City the total eclipse i
will take place about 9:10 a. m. and the

States and Will Be Last
For Next 100 Years.
(By the Antootatei Preu)
New York. .Tan. 23.—Such eastern
states as are so fortunate as to be in the
path of totality were ready and waiting
today for the phenomenon which will
sweep out of the west tomorow morning
to plunge the section into permanent
darkness during the first total eclopse of
the sun it has witnessed for 450 years.
-Pair weather has been predicted for
the hour of the eclipse but scientists
pointed out today this was no assurance
the phenomenon would be visible from
the ground, as one cloud rightly placed
would blot out 'the entire spectacle.
To prevent such an occurrence spoiling
the many preparations that the scientific
organizations have made to study the
eclipse in the hope of wresting secrets
from the skies, which are hopeless of at
tainment at other times, plans have been
made to take observations from numerous
widely separate points and from both
land and air.
The giant dirigible Los Angeles will
sail aloft during the eclipse with a band
of scientists manning intricate mechan
ism for photographing while similar ob
servations will be made from the army.
The progress of the eclipse as it rush
es through the past will be broadcasted
by radio under the auspices of the Sci
entific American which will receive tele
phone messages from strategic- positions
along the line of the rushing shadow's
Practically all Eastern colleges have
announced plans to study the eclipse in
the hopes of making astronomical discov
eries and scientific groups will be sta

observation conditions will be good.
