Dear Editor:
On Tuesday, March 23, the citizens of North
Carolina go to the polls to cast their ballots for their
presidential preference, and also to decide on the
quality of the state’s higher education system for
years to come. r; ~ .
The question on higher education concents the
issuance of $43,267,000 in capital improvements
bonds for state-sttpported institutions of higher
learning. ’ •
We in Western North Carolina have a definite
stake in this issue since three of the 13 campuses in
the University of North Carolina System scheduled
for vitally-needed projects are located in the
mountains. These include $3,328,000 for a library
addition at Appalachian State University, $1,900,
000 for a classroom-office building at-
UNC-Asheville and $3,423,000 for an administra
tion building-mountain heritage museum at
Western Carolina University.
Our General Assembly has endorsed this
proposition by voting 38-1 in the Senate and 80-0 in
l the House. State Treasurer Edwin Gill, long
recognized for his budgetary wisdom, supports the
referendum, noting that there will be no need for
any tax increase for the bonds.
Increased enrollment on campuses of the
university system is causing this need, and it is
being felt on every campus. Since 1964, the number
of students has doubled, climbing from 50,884 to
1975‘s fall enrollment of 104,786.
The western part of the state has a heritage of
support for this state's institutions of higher
education, realizing the challenges which face our
young people in the future.
As chancellors for two of these institutions, we
urge the people of Western North Carolina to
support the University of North Carolina Bond
Referendum when you vote on March 23.

EDITORIAL
BY T. AVERY NYE, JR. f
Commissioner of Labor |
When the voters of North Carolina go to the
polls on March 23rd they will have a decision to
make which will have a most profound effect on the
future growth and development of our state. That J 8
-i* decision is Amendment #Two, the Industrial ' ,v 5
■ Revenue Bond Issue. * 5 1 *
Not only will the decision of the voters have a 3 s *
tremendous impact on the state as a whole, it will' *
also affect every citizen of this state. As the news "
media have been reporting during the last several
weeks, state government is facing a very serious
shortfall in revenues. The legislature and the p ‘
Governor are working very diligently to overcome .W 2
* this situation. However, in the final analysis there •
are only two ways to improve the revenue u
picture.. .increase the rate of tax or broaden the tax
1 base. 1 "firt
A vote FOR Amendment #Two will broaden the
tax base and will thus increase state and local ’ ■
I revenues at NO increase in taxes for the already
overburdened taxpayers of North Carolina. Every J *
* dime of the bond debts would be repaid with 'f g^
private money. g^
For years North Carolina has labpred under the
distinct disadvantage of not having tax-free
, revenue bond financing for prospective new ‘ ? ?
industry. This has made our competitive position *
* very poor as compared to the surrounding states, "<-'g
New industry has taken its business to locations in '*
these other states which, in reality, were second
$ choice...but became first choice because North
Carolina did not have an industrial bond financing
■ program.
* New and expanding industry in North Carolina : 5 |V
has many positive effects upon our state...new
J plants mean more jobs for North Carolinians. New
industry means more people coming to our state to
work and visit which will help our overall economy. : "-’Ba
® New corporate growth means more property on the rjl i 3
tax rolls which means a broader tax base. More W z
interest in North Carolina means we can be more
B selective about which industries and businesses •
■ will be best for our state. !
All of these benefits, plus many others, can be g a
achieved at no cost or risk to the taxpayers. These '
bonds, as they should be, are the responsibility of ■ J
* the private enterprise which uses them. J
» Tax-exempt Industrial Revenue Bonds will never MJ
g become a burden to a single taxpayer in North 8.2
■ Carolina.
* 1 plan to vote FOR Amendment # Two on March Q
23rd, because I believe it is in the best longtefra A R-a
interest of the economic growth of our state. A vote
FOR Industrial Revenue Bonds is a vote AGAINST Is. !J
■ higher taxes.
