workmen, pointing out that when
there (was a job to do, that North
Carolinians could be counted on
to do the work. Among the ac
complishments on the home front,
Ire said, was that every man and

something at all limes made in

John I.. Lewis."
"All America must get back
to the pioneer spirit, because there
are too many content to live on
government bounty. Down here
in North Carolina we still believe
in Stale's rights, and do not need

Mr. Broughton cited the agri
cultural records of the state, but
reminded that much yet should be
done to improve conditions. He
gave one instance on dairying, by
pointing out, "The average con
sumption of milk in North Caro
lina is only 50 per cent of the na
tional average, yet we import mil
lions of gallons each year. North
Carolina needs more dairying
we need more purebred bulls and
"If we are to continue to go
forward, we must continue the edu
cational program unabated. North
Carolina knows education pays, and
I feel the state will add medical
care and hospital treatment," he
In reviewing the financial stand
ing of the state, Mr. Broughton
pointed out with pride, "This state
is in the soundest financial condi
tion of any of the 48."
"This record has been accom
plished while we moved steadily
forward. In 1933 went forward by
adopting the 8-month school and
in 1943 went to a 9 month system,
12 grades and Increased teacher's
salaries 20 per cent, and had a
$75,000,000 cash surplus when I
went out of office," he said proudly.
'North Carolina s part in the day
of tomorrow, Is to provide ideals,
traditions and purposes which the
whole nation needs," he concluded.
