If elected, I vow be fore God to work for no speci al interest for any selective gioup. "I believe there is no suet thing as 'something for noth ing' and for me tu promise < special benefit to a limit» few would be an out-and-ou violation of the entire concep of American liberty." Stocks then stated: "My only pledge is to wort to uphold the constitutions ο the State of North Carolin; ι and of the United States; to • preserve an environment, eoo l nomically and socially, where l in every individual man may I attempt to fulfill his desires : and dreams. Aspirations which ere destroyed by collectivism have no opportunity for ful . ftllment . » "I pledge to work for Indiv i idual liberty for the individu al citizen; to do this, I cannot and will not promise special benefits to special groups." In announcing for the posi tion, Stocks continued: "I believe the following to be sound principles of personal conduot, and even more sound when applied to government. I shall employ them as basics lit my code of conduct in reaching legislative decisions if the voters see fit to break with tradition and elect me in No vember to the House of Repre sentatives. 1) You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. 2) You cannot bring about prosperity b y discouraging thrift. 3) You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the man who pays the wages. 4) You cannot further the brotherhood of man by en couraging class hatred. 5) You cannot establish Found security on borrowed imoney. > ·*· ·: ·ν · * • 6) You cannot help.the poor by discouraging tbe 'wealthy. · 7) You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. , 8) Ypu cannot build charact er and courage by taking away it man's initiative and inde pendence. 9) Above all, you cannot help man permanently by do ing for him what he could and should do for himselt." Stocks then pledged to work for repeal of the sales tax on jood items as he said: "In my opinion, it is an un fair tax which is forced upon the people against their will by a power-mad governor and legislature . "I believe in states' rights and I also believe in the re sponsibilities of the state to ward its citizens. If in our legislature we fail to act re sponsibly, Washington will act in our stead, but not necessar ily in our interests. "I pledge support in behalf of the Kerr-Mills medical care bill, and to the establishment of a permanent state commit tee to maintain a check on communist activities in our fchools and colleges, a step taken by other states."
