Anti-Sales Tax Plan
' Promise of the revenue plan of the
anti-sales tax group of the General
I Assembly, by which it is claimed
I that the sales tax can be avoided and
even more money raised tor schools
and other State needs, early this
week ,to be placed before the Finance
committee, gave hope of early action
on this proposal. Chairman R. Gregg
Cherry of that committee appealed
to the group to pl&ce its plan before
the committee, where it belonged, for
The group, headed by Dr. Ralph
McDonald, Forsyth and W. L. Lump
kin, Franklin previously claimed the
committee was "stacked” and plan
ned to present the substitute meas

Chairman Cherry said it would de
lay work if that were done, asking
the group to place it before the com

Milk may be excluded from the taxed
items. Opponents of the sales tax
claim this is one step toward victory
in seeking to remove the sales tax
entirely. Other items in the tax

Supt. Clyde A. Erwin asked foi $22,-
000,000 for schools and 25 per cent
increase in teacher salaries. Thi.s
would please Governor Ehringhaus,
he has said, if revenues can be found
to do it. Dr. Frank Giaham appealed
effectively for increase appropria
tions for the State University for liv

Other Matters Dehiyinl
Unless the sales tax fight holds up
matters too long, the Revenue, as well
as the Appropriations, bill, may be
expected to be approaching final
form the latter part of this week
and may soon get to House and Sen
ate floors. Then the other committees,
holding few meetings because many
of their members were in the more
important meetings, preventing quo
rums, can begin to work properly.
Several bills struck saags and went
over the week-end to this week. In
these are the drivers’ license bill,
the cosmetic art amendments, and
The sub-committee of the joint
roads committee recommended re
duction of license tag fees for cars
to 40 cents, instead of 55 cents per
100 pounds, and a minimum of $9, in
stead of the present $12.50.
Some Bills Passed
Only 86 measures of all kinds, res
olutions, local and public bills, had
been passed Saturday, out of more
than 450 bills introduced to that
Tolls from the Chowan, Cape Fear
and North East river bridges were
removed in acts passed, the highway
division taking over bond payments.
