" The perennial controversy over
i ctatewlde llauor referendum will
,'inally be considered by the propo
sitions and grievances committees
of the House and Senate on Tues-
Jay at 2r30 p.m. in the House Cham
ber. Of the two proposals before
the committees, the first (SB 4)
would, have the people determine
the single question of whether ABC
stores shall be established In all
counties for the sale of liquor or
whether all such, stores shall be
closed; the second HB 186) would
have the voters determine whether
liquor, beer, and wine shall be sold
only by ABC stores In all counties
or whether absolute prohibition
shall prevail. ' '
Since January 30 when the joint
appropriations ',: committee ' began
hearing appeals from the state ag
encies for additional funds, over
$70 million has been requested In
excess of the Advisory Budget Com
mission's recommendations. 'About
V4 of this amount represents Tues
day's request by the State Board ot
Education for between $30 and $35
million to establish the teachers'
salary scale at $200-93,100 and to
provide for expanded service in
the next biennium. Other increases
sought this week included . $1214
mission requested by the Hospital
Board' of Control for mental in
stitutions and completion of its
building program and almost $3
million ' for agricultural " services.
Next week will complete scheduled
committee hearings with the ap
pearances on Tuesday by the State
Board of Public Welfare, on Wed

This week the House manufac

sidered HB 108 designed to give a
75c minimum hourly wage and a
40-hour work week to persons not
covered by the' federal statute and
salaried worker making under $50
a week.' Just when, it looked as
though the bill would be killed, it
was referred to a subcommittee for '
study, but prospects for its future
look dim; At the same meeting this

Senator Allabrook's SB 183 Is al
most certain to start a new round
in the truck weight battle started
in the 1949 session. With the possi
bility of support from tests now
tuins conducted , in Maryland, this
bill seeks to reduce the weight
limits for trucks on North Carolina
highways to the pre-1949 level, and
In the case of 2-axle trucks even
below that figure. If passed this
bill would also eliminate the pres
ent law's tolerance of 5 more than
statutory limits and Increase pen
alties for violating the new limita- .-
tions. The Senate roads committee
has not yet discussed the bill.
Last week the finance commit
