An amendment which would ha
ve made us of the. stamp method
discretionary with revenue comm
issioner was defeated by the Jo
int Finance Committee after an ap
pearance by Win Lobbyist John
Caffey of ; California supporting
the change In all fairness, it must
be pointed out that Revenue Com
missioner Eugene Shaw also favor
ed the amendment stating that it
might be ' hard to. get the stamp
program launched and that some
other method of collecting the tax
.night nave to be used.
But one legislator put It this
way; "The wine people don't want
the stamp put on, and when their
represenative- favors this ' amend
ment you can be sure they must
have figured some way to get ar
ound it. They're smart enough to
have pulled the ' wool over even
fGene Shaw's eyes. .;
Well, despite the fact that his
own Finance Committee had kil
led the wine-lobby sponsored am
endment and the fact that a
committee chairman practically
always supports the stand of his
committee -Bost presented almost
an identical one on the floor when
the stamp bill came up for action.
(The only similar situation that
comes to mind is in the 1949 ses
sion when Frank Taylor, then Ap
propriations Committee chairman,
reserved the right to fight the ap
propriations bill on the floor.
Asked if : this wasn't the same
amendment, Bost at first flatly
denied that it was. He later said
that he did not know, that he was
not in the committee when the
bill and amendment was considered
Still later he said the wording of
this amendment was slightly dif
ferent from the One killed in com
mittee it was, making it even more
doubtful that the stamp on wine
bottles would ever be seen in
North Carolina And still later
Bost said he had been in commit
tee when the bill was considered
but not while they voted on the
It is pretty unusual, however,
for a committee chairman not to
acquaint himself with action tak
en by his committee, even if he
is absent when the deed is done.
Despite all this song-and-dance
the House let this amendemnt - ap
proved by the wine lobbyist pass
without noticeable opposition to
the ramrodding Mr. Bost.
After . that exhibition, how can
he call the teacher lobby powerful?
Add to all this box score: .
Liquor Lohbyst Frank Sims
didn't want any more taxes on ho
och. The finance committee (House
obligingly killed the bill proposing
added taxes, then- almost in a
body - turned their smiling faces
to Mr. Sims to get his gracious nod
of approval. .
Three beer lobbyists, Shelby Cav-
eness, Willie Le .Lumpkin, and
Bill Johnson - had House Proposi
tions and Grievance Chairman
John Regan ask them if it was 'all
right to report" a beer-vote bill,
got an afirmative report from the
lobbyists, and It was so ordered.
And the big bad banker of Ca
pitol Hill had his persoally-instruc-
ted delegate pr, In this case. Sena
tor toss In a bill for the perso
nal benefit of his own bank . ;
So nobody pays any attention
to the lobbyist, huh?
The Senate followed the lead of
the conservative-led House and pas
wd the slant appropriations bill
without living gie teachers a false
or adding the $15-a-month state
employee pay boost 1 ' .
There were six attempts by
six , different amendments to
force through more money for the
teachers and employees. But
the "h'old-the-line" senators . out
voted those wanting to give raises.
Even contingency raises died for
lack of votes.
But what had the senators talk
ing to. themselves as they walked
away after thf .session - was the
fact that their votes on all six am
endments had been put on the re
cord for the folks back home to
see. . - - '. j
However, not one backed down'
or changed his vote because to I
the public record, as far as it
could be determined. , - j
The six amandmante were:
1. State employees pay raise
retroactive to January 1, 1951 - lost
35-13. . f , -
2. Include school janitors, me
chanics and clerical help In a $15
per - month cost-of-living raise
i 3. Contingent pay raise for all
?tate employees and school teachers
4. Contingent pay raise for
state employees only lost 33-14.
5. Ten-percent increase up ' to
$360 a year for teachers and sche-
pl employees lost 35-13.
6. Contingent $135-a-year raise
for school teachers - lost 35-13.
Senators Rivers D. Johnson of
Duplin and Lennon of New Hano

There was the distinct imp
alon that all of the senators w-
voting their convictions. Not c e
budged an inch because of ,te
roll call, Many of them reseated
the record vote, however, because
they know that it will be used' to
flsht them and to Attempt 10 wi

and against raises for state emp
loyees. .fs;.,,v,V-V ::.!'?:.'
This was not the way they felt
vita a budget 843,000,900 more
than originally estimated, the sen
ators' attitude was that this Gene
ral Assembly has done all It can-
that tot raise the budget, higher
would be disastrous. They may well
be wrong, but that was the way they
saw.lt '.sH'S v. ifWv '.'i i'?
- The senators on , that voting,
Knowing it could hurt two years
hence, showed themselves to be
men - rather than politicians, in
the acepted tense of the word.
Their action may hurt at the polls
but they voted their convictions.
Things like that separate the men
from the boys.

The legislature : has slapped
down every attempt to get across
. motor vehicle inspection prog
ram. So, yeu would think the law
makers gleefully would pas a
bill to do away with the old 19 .
inspection ". equipment
Such was not the case, but not
because anyone on the committee
killing the bill thought another
motor vehicle lnspecton law would.
It was Just a matter of plain com
mon sense. They investigated and
discovered that the equipment co
uld e used for routine inspection
work on state vehciles. It Just did
not make sense to get rid of it
when it could be used.
A bill seeking to refund sales tax
paid from the Presbyterian encamp
ment at M on treat fell by the way
side. The bill Introduced by Senat
ors J. Hawley Poole of Moore, Ral
ph Scott of Alamance, and Zeb
Weaver, Jr., of Buncome author
ized the revenue commissioner, to
repay sales taxes illegally collected
from charitable or educational ins
titutions between July 1,1936 and
December 31,1946. Seems the Mon
treat encampment had been coll
ecting the sales tax when it was
hot supposed te and turning it ov
er to the state. The bill would have
refunded this tax money to the Pr
esbyterians. -' '
The bill was sailing along fine
Then someone came up with the
sound argument that, In order for
the repayment to be legal, the Pre
sbyterians would have to repay
everyone from whom they bad col
lected the tax originally.
' Naturally, with tale 1 tax; tint
would be impossible. There died
the bill. ' ' ' -

happenstance the bill should get a

der average farm conditions these
mixtures can be expected to yield
at least 2.500 pounds of dlgestUrie
nutrients or about half the amount
needed to feed one animal unit for
a year. -Using corn as comparison,
th experiment shows that an acre
of good pasture - of Ladino clover

fescue will yield an equivalent
of from 60 to 80 bushels of corn.
Pasture yields equal to 100 bushels
of corn per acre are not uncommon.
In addition the lover-grass mixture
provides a more balanced diet than
corn or other feed grains alone.
