Raleigh, N. C. — July 5, 1921 —
The Governor and Council 'of State
are still debating th« question of an
extra session of the General Assem
bly this summer. The municipalities
* appear to be in no hurry about furn
ishing the information attked for and
there is little upon which to base the
tall other than general statements
made to His Excellency by tdie may-
oxto of various cities represented at
the special meeting of the North Car
olina Municipal Associatipn recently
held here. Governor Morrison spent
last week resting in WrightsvSle
Beach, but is back in the office ready
for action when the cities are able to
show that it is in^possible for them to
l^et along for the next two years with
out the proposed change in the Muni-
ci|>al Finance Act. Scarcely atrybody
here approves the snggestion of an
extra session, but the exigencies of
some of the largw cities may demand
it, in which event prompt action will
likely be taken.
The unemployment situation in the
State shows slight improvement, in
