port During Week.
Raleigh, Jan, 20 (By the Associated
Press). —A crowded slate, a full program
will face the General Assembly when it
reconvenes tonight at 8 o’clock and indi
cations are it will be the most interest
ing program the Assembly has had* any
week since H began on January 7th.
The high spots on the program are re
ports of the budget commission and the
board of assessments and Governor Mc-
Lean's second message. ,
The time for the budget and assessment 1
bodies to submit their reports on which
the principal financial matters .will be
based is limited to the last session Satur
day, and .it is understood they will file
their .findings and recommendations be
fore that time, probably by Wednesday
or Thursday. .
Governor McLeean has announced that
he will deliver his second message as soon
thereafter as possible, and that in it he
will outline more definitely than in his
first message his financial views, recom
mending the amount he favors for ngw
rond bonds at this time. This sum, it
has been reliably learned, will be consid
erably lower than the $35,000,000 pro
posed in the Bowie-Heath bill introduced
in both houses last week.
Besides these three major events, the
legislative program includes a number of
others of no small importance, and it is
likely there wll be a number of develop
ments not slated.
Considerable interest will center in
two committee meetings. The House
roads committee is to meet and consider
the Bowie-Heath bill Thursday, agd the

BLUE SKY LAW WITH TEETH
BUI In Senate Will Provide Legislation
(«» the Associated Press.)
Raleigh, Jan. 26. —If a bill recently
Introduced by Senator Dunlap, of An
son, on behalf of the State Insurance
I Department, is adopted by the General
Assembly, North Carolina jvill have a
blue sky or securities law with teeth in
’ if. according to Insurance Commissioner
i Stacey W. Wade.
j Mr. Wade said he and his assistants
' wrote the bill on the basis of the best
1 features of blue sky laws of other states.
It is very like the Georgia securities
'law. he added.
One of the outstanding features of the
proposed law for North Carolina is a
requirement that all securities tpt be
sold ih this state, except for a few of
the “guilt edge” variety, be qualified and
listed on a register tb be kept by the
insurance oommissioner and to be open
to public inspection. In most states,
said Mr. Wade, it is necessary only to
file a notice of intention to sell stocks
Qualifications of securities nnd their
worthiness for enrollment is the insur
ance commission’s register will be large
ly a matter of discretion with the head /
of (he department, under the proposer
law, but there are certain requriments
outlined in the law that must be mea
sured up to. These requirements are
more stringent than they have ever been
in this state heretofore, declared Mr
The issuer of the stock for which sale
application has been made would be re
quired to post a bond of not less than
( SI,OOO and not more than SIOO,OOO, in :
'the discretion of the insurance commis-,
sioner. Stock and bond salesmen would
have to give bonds of not less than $5,000 i
nor more than $50,000 before being au
thorized to carry on their business. Here
tofore the minimum bond has been
SI,OOO. Saleraen and dealers would al- ]
so have to pay the usual license fee. ,
Under the present blue sky law, said ,
Mr. Wade, some security agencies are (
exempted from the license fee. Under ,
this new bill even banks and trust coin- ,
panics would have to secure licenses to
carry on business in stocks and bonds
and other securities coming- under juris
diction of the insurance commissioner. ,
Another new phase of Mr. Wade's pro- '
posed law is a. clause making it unlaw- j
ful for a newspaper to carry advertise- ,
ments of securities not listed on the in
surance department’s qualified register or
not exempted from this requirement. ,
Among the exempted securities are ,
bonds issued by the federal government
or any state and securities handled by ■
any exchange of a city of 500.000 popu- j
lation*or over. Mortgage ‘securities
would have to be qualified. *
The insurance commission is author
ised, under the new bill, ft issuel'warn

qiilred to advertise the names- of stocks
nnd bonds denied entry on the qualified
Punishment by a fine or not more than •
S2OO, a sentence of two years imprison- I
ment or both, is provided in the "bill for
violation of any of Its provisions should
it be enacted. 1
The measure is now in the hands of
the Senate insurance committee and is
expected to come up for consideration !
