j ments have raised an eyebrow or
two, the announced salaries which
went with them have resulted in
long, sharp whistles throughout
the State. Very few people even

THE JUDGES North Carolina's
seven Supreme Court judges ten
years ago received only $9,050 per
annum, but now they draw $14,400.
Superior Court judges 27 of them
in all receive $12,.r00 now as
against only $8,050 a decade ago.
The 21 solicitors get $8,000 as com
pared with $5,000 in 1939-40.
$12,000 BRACKET The assist
ant director of the budget D. S.
Coltrane is going to that job ten
years ago drew only $6,600. Now
it is set up for $12,000. The State
health officer, Dr. J. W. R. Nor
ton, now receives $12,000. Teo
years ago this position paid $7,200.
These are also in the $12,000
bracket; superintendent of the
State Hospital Board, the secretary
to the Medical Care Commission,
and the Ports Authority Director.
NO TROUBLE It is easy to see
why Governor Scott has had no
trouble finding men to fill the vari
ous jobs as they were vacated. The
chairman of the ABC board, for
instance, draws $7,920. This also
goes for the parole commissioner,
members of the Utilities Commis
sion, burial commissioner. Indus
trial members, Commissioner of
Public Welfare, secretary of the
State Retirement System, Director
of Prpbation, attorney for the
State Highway Commission, the
Adjutant General, director of Con
servation and Development, audit
or to the State Highway Commis
sion, Fifty-six professors and col
lege, executive receive $7,920 or
Frank Jeter at State College
makes $9,600, and is no doubt
worth every penny of it. The pri
vate secretary to the Governor ten
years ago drew $4,500. He now re
ceives $8,640. '
All of these big salaries went
into effect on April 1.
"THE FEAR" WhilP it L Imo
that quite a few of these employees
are sheltered from the political
winds which blow every four years,
the others become afflicted with
"the fear" each year in four. As of
right now all is peaches and cream

Wildlife Management Areas in
Western North Carolina have been
heavily stocked with trout, accord

Director of the North Carolina
Patton said that initial stocking
in these areas has been completed
and more trout will be added to
the streams later in the season.

THAT AMENDMENT The Con
stitutional amendrnerit on bond is
sues approved last November by
the Voters may be of more import
ance to the State than tHe elec
tion of Kerr Scott as Governor.
Prior to this year people who regis
tered for a bohd Issue could vot
against it merely by staying away
from the polls on election day.
Now, they must register and take
the trouble to go vote against it if
they are opposed to it.
This may result in the adoption
of the $200,000,000 bond issue for
roads and the $25,000,000 for
schoolhouses. The feeling here is,
that, generally speaking. Only those
favoring these projects will take
the time to go register and vote.
