Abstract:
There are several bills and referendums being shown through North Carolina General Assembly during this legislative session. As part of the Revenue Bill review, a decision on a tax on wine has been postponed, while a new emergency war bonus may be provided monthly if available. The Post-War Reserve Fund is being built up to a mandatory $20,000,000, while the referendum on the sale of alcoholic beverages has been declared dead for the session. In addition to the question of how much funds are to be given for schools, educational districts and a business manager are expected to be installed. Little has been done to move forward with the Medical Care, Medical School and Hospitalization Program since a report was delivered on the State's needs last session.

Abstract:
There is a problem with the cotton industry in the southern states: it must make up its mind whether to have a high price for cotton with a smaller market, or a lower price with a larger market. It is argued that there are four approaches to the solution of the problem. The first would be to hold all cotton produced for parity prices, or a specific level. The second argues for a level price for domestic consumption but world prices for export. The third utilizes world prices based on unrestricted competition or international agreements, while the fourth solution looks at a complete reconversion of the south's cotton program.

Research into other state approaches has shown that with this system, equity is not served to the taxpayer, there are problems with administration and budgeting, and most of all, there is a loss of total revenue from the state's General Fund.

Abstract:
Given the events of World War I and II, there is reasonable argument for compulsory military training for all men between the ages of 18 to 23. The training allows the country and state to be prepared in case of war, provides physical health and vocational training, and promotes democracy. At the same time, it is argued that without the threat of world war, the country and states would be reasonably prepared for conflict, there is little agreement on the disciplinary and health benefits of such training, and the economic benefits of a government payroll does not contribute to the overall standard of living.
