Instead, it is believed they are go ing to get down to business as soon as possible, concentrate on the most important legislation, get through and go home. Severn! reasons aio being advanced for the belief that this forthcoming legislative session is going to be a short one. or at least that it will not exceed the HO days for which mem bers are paid. One of the principal reasons being hdvaneed and being agreed by many members of the leg islature is that most of the members will be financially unable to stay here after thein pay stops. The result is a determination on the part of a ma jority of the members to see to it that no deadlock develops and to finish up all legislation within the 60 days allotted. Still another reason for the belief that the sessions will be short is the desire on the part of many members to save as much of the $lO a day they will receive to take back home -with them. "There are a good many members of this legislature who will receive more cash for the 80 days they will be here in Raieigh than they will re ceive for the rest of the year, and they are not going to let this vanish before the get back home," a former member of the legislature said here today. “My prediction is that fewer members are going to stay in the hotels and more of them at rooming and boarding houses than ever before. For most of the members are going to save something out of their S6OO salary this time." There are other than financial rea sons. however, for the belief that the forthcoming session is not going to run beyond the 60 days limit. One of these reasons is that most of the members realiz ethe need for concert ed thought and action in solving the State's problems, with the result that most of them are coming here with ooen minds, v/tth a desire to do the best possible and without being com mitted to any particular plan or pledged to any particular bloc. Those who have talked with many mem bers of the forthcoming legislature report that these members have said that they are coming to the legisla ture free to act as their judgment dic tates.

Perkins, of New York, for many years intimate of the late James B. Duke, will be one of five principal speakers at, the meeting in the First Methodist church in Char lotte Sunday, December 11, commemo rating the signing of the indenture through which Duke created the Duke Endowment, whose assistance to hospitals, orphanages, educational institutions and other beneficiaries in some weeks ago to organize a luxury sales lax and anti-administration bloc | is regarded as proof of this. For while) there is no doubt that an effort Wss j made to organize a bloc in both houses similar to the Maclean bloc j inrihe House in 1931. and which caus- i e J the deadlock that held the legis-1 laturc in session for five months, it is now agreed that this effort has fail-j < d dismally. As a result, it is expected that much j better progress will be made in the i legislature this time along all lines ;.nd that the members of both houses will be more inclined to compromise 1 on whatever seems to be the best course of action. No deadlock is ex-j p< c .ed to develop. Still another factor that is expected to help hold the legislative session) within the 60 days allotted, is the fact ! that quite a number of the members of both houses are hopeful of being' iccipients of political jobs or appoint-j meats under the new Democratic ad ministration that will go into office- March 4. And March 4 is just exactly 60 days from January 4. when the leg islature begins its-session. These hope ful aspirants to Democratic pie— though ftw are likely to evtr taste it know that thty must be ready and I free to accept any pie proffered them; on March 4. So they are expected to, do everything possible to bring about , the adjournment of the General As-j seinbly before March 4. The Genera] Assembly Is bound to hit a few snags here and there, it is 1 conceded. But it is agreed that all signs point to a harmonious session that will not exceed 60 days and that may adjourn even before the 60 days has expired. - j Hoover Offers Plan For Reorganization of U. S.
