North Carolina's Venture In Cover men t Change Mailed I1Y EM1IKT. ATKINS, Jr. Unltcil I'rrss Stall Cnm-S|ioiuli>nt RALEIGH, N. c. tui'i — Three, experiments In transfer of local government government powers to Ihe slate have brought North Carolina cilles and coimties from the depths of n $302.000.000 debt lo comparative financial .liability within tlic past 10 years. According to Charles M. Johnson, stale treasurer and one of Hie key figures In the rmniidal reorganization of the local nulls, Dm .surrender of functions by counties und municipalities has strengthened rather than weakened the ilcmociadc proce.ssc.s »f (,'overntncnt. In 1931. the local mills of North Carolina were $302.000,000 In debt and going deeper every year. The demand for funds for schools anil roads was coiisliuilly Increasing, and with the depression and ils consequent reduction of tux revenues, the demands could not be met. l.o;ai and county bond Issues clogficd II low prices. LCjiMalin'i! Took Action To alleviate the situation. Mule ROVernment by legislative action during the nest two years Inaugurated three experiment's in taking over responsibilities previously shouldered by the cities nnd coimll™. They were: 1. The stale look ovrr construction ami maintenance of all roads, primary nnd secondary. '•!• The stale assumed full financial responsibility for maintaining nn eight-months school term, with counties and lot-nlltles nddhiK funds to the state appropriation if they wished. This had never been done In any slat? except. Delaware, which has only three comities. 3. A local government commission was established lo sell the bonds and noies of all counties, c-ltlea nnd towns and to advise and assist, in ix-niiiinc'lng (he debts of local units. Johnson pointed out Dim none ot these three experiments had brcn tried in any other stale, in least to (he extent to which they were put in opmitton in North Carolina, still the only stale lo lake full responsibility lor nil Us schools and roads. The Norlh Carolina locnl government commission wa.s Ihe first such body to lie established. Eillliauijh since 1M! several other stales have created similar commissions. Komi liulliliii. (.Vntialivcil Prior tn ihe slnle's assuming Hie burden of constructing nil highways and roails, Johnson said, Hie highway commission constructed and maintained only those roads known us main highway*,' as is the case in nil other slalcs. Mec- ondiuy and county roads were constructed by counties and in some cases even by districts or by one or more dlslricls within h county.
