EXTRA SESSION TO
MEET IN DECEMBER
Will Correct Error in Municipal Fi
nance Law And Probobly Attend
To School Deficit
Raleigh, N. C. July 18. There is
to be an extra session of the General
Assembly early next winter. The
Governor and Council of State in.
session on Friday of last week settled
the issue definitely. The General
Assembly will convene in extraor-
Cth, to correct the error in the muni-
c5Pal f inarce law an " to bond ' the
State if lhc necesslty appears, for
an amount aggregating $700,000
to cover an apparent deficit in the
school fund for the present biennial
It has been predicted in this corre
spondence all along since talk of an
extra session wag started that there
would be no call for this summer, if
at all. The suggestion of an extra
session has met the approval of a
very few people anywhere outside th
limits of the cities interested in au
thority to levy more taxes and sell
more bonds. The conclusion to issue
th? call was reached reluctantly and
only after most persistent insistence
On the part of a number of leading
ci.ties in the f?tate which submitted
statements showing that they Acould
not possibly get along without au
thority to borro.v money and levy
taxe- without eel ay.
Efforts have been made to dissuade
the Governor from postponing the
ses .ion until December Cth, but with
out avail. There are , more reasons
than have probably been "advanced for
putting the matter off until Decem
ber Gth. Probably one of them is
hope that the members would perform
the service fcr which they are to be
, called together and stop there. This
1 would enable them to spend Christ-
mas at home. Another reason might
! be that the Governor needs rest an i
prefers the balmy air of mountain-;
to the turning rays of the Raleigh sun
during the summer months,.. Anyway,
, "vhere'? a reason.''
Governor Morrison and his little
e-aunter. n-rena, w;tn otner mem
bers of the family have shaken the
dust olf their feet against the capital
city and taken up their r.bode in the
mountain metropolis. They -left for
Asheville on Saturday and will spend
