NUMBER 1, ACR 1

Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 1–Committee on Legislative Functions.

NUMBER 1

ASSEMBLY CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Memorializes the late Senator Patrick Anthony McCarran.

 

      Whereas, On the 28th day of September 1954, a tremendous loss was brought upon the people of our state and Nation and upon the people of the entire free world; for on that appointed day the beloved and esteemed Patrick Anthony McCarran was taken from our midst by the hand of the infinitely wise and just Creator; and

      Whereas, Our state this day bows its head in a spirit of irretrievable loss to this truly great man, who has distinguished his length of days by an unprecedented service to the State of Nevada and her people, and who, more than any other man, has used his influence to uplift and develop this great state; and

      Whereas, The career of “Pat” McCarran belongs to history, and the legislature of the State of Nevada would not, in this memorial, presume to chronicle all of its incidents; nevertheless, we are moved to note that “Pat’ McCarran was formerly a member of the legislature which now does this honor to his memory. It should also be brought to mind, in this memorial, that in his long and distinguished career, “Pat” McCarran was recognized as one of the state’s ablest lawyers and its finest statesman. The diligent application of these abilities culminated in his reaching the station of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of Nevada and United States Senator from the State of Nevada. In both of these positions he served with the greatest of distinction; however, it was in his seat in the United States Senate that “Pat” McCarran became a man of majestic authority and worldwide influence. It was this “Pat” McCarran whom Senator Styles Bridges of New Hampshire called “The Greatest American I Have Ever Known”; and

      Whereas, Recollection of the innumerable achievements of “Pat” McCarran still leaves untold the sublime nature of his spirit of which it may certainly be said:

“His life was gentle, and the elements

So mix’d in him that Nature might stand up

And say to all the world, ‘This was a man!’ ”;

now therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly of the State of Nevada, the Senate concurring, That we express, this day, our profound sorrow at the untimely passing of “Pat” McCarran and our gratitude for the dedication of his life and labors to our state and Nation-the significance of which will endure so long as the record of a consecrated spirit has the power to move the lives of men; and be it further

      Resolved, That a duly certified copy be prepared by the secretary of state of the State of Nevada and be transmitted forthwith to the bereaved family of the deceased.

NUMBER 9

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Nevada highway department to cooperate with the Storey County board of county commissioners for the improving and paving of six mile canyon road.

 

      Whereas, Virginia City, Nevada, is one of the last showplaces of the old west and is preserving the landmarks which made our state famous during the Comstock days and has added so much to the heritage of our state; and

      Whereas, Virginia City is becoming an ever-increasing tourist attraction and it is mandatory that the State of Nevada cooperate in aiding Storey County to provide proper access to this attraction for tourists as well as the residents of this state who frequently travel to that community on business and pleasure; and

      Whereas, Six mile canyon road proceeds from the main street of Virginia City easterly to U. S. highway 50 and thus affords the most feasible, economical and convenient route for east-west traffic to gain access to Virginia City; and

      Whereas, Six mile canyon road is still unimproved and unpaved and hampers the flow of the tourist trade and also causes great hardship and discomfort to the residents of that area who need access to the flowery mining district, several mines and important springs, grazing areas, fire control and prevention districts as well as many historic and scenic sites; and

      Whereas, The improving and paving of this road would only entail six miles in Storey County and the board of county commissioners of Storey County, in July 1954, resolved that Storey County wished to participate in the United States Government rural road program in cooperation with the Nevada highway department and notified said department of their decision at the same time; and

      Whereas, Due to the present uncertain state of affairs in the world at large and realizing that under the present emergency the Territory of Alaska by reason of its natural resources, its strategic position in the northern hemisphere, and the wish and desire of the citizens of the Territory to join the several states upon an equal footing, and realizing the importance to the union for the admission of the Territory, and the legislature of Nevada believing that full representation of the Territory of Alaska should be granted; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the Congress of the United States be, and it is hereby memorialized to extend to the Territory of Alaska full status of a state of the United States with full representation in Congress; and be it further

      Whereas, The United States has adopted a program to assist foreign nations to regain their industrial strength weakened by a long and bloody war; and

      Whereas, Even now there is a growing condition of strife among nations and the United States has mobilized the greatest peacetime army in our history standing guard throughout the world; and

      Whereas, There has been evidence that foodstuffs, machinery, raw materials and other commodities, supplied by the United States to foreign nations to assist in their postwar reconstruction, have been diverted to Russia and the communist-bloc nations which could be used against the forces of the United Nations and of the United States in the event a war would break out; now therefore, be it

      Whereas, Lehman Caves, in the eastern part of the State of Nevada, are widely recognized in speleological and other scientific circles as one of the most interesting and exceptional limestone caverns in the entire world, having unequaled flowstone decorations of exceeding profusion and variety, and limestone formations of unique and exquisite design; and

      Whereas, This magnificent natural wonder was purchased with public funds of the county of White Pine, State of Nevada, and presented to the Federal Government in the trust and understanding that under its patronage the caves would be protected, developed and administered as a national monument, accessible to the people of our nation for their education and enjoyment; and

NUMBER 15, AJR 11

Assembly Joint Resolution No. 11–Committee on State Publicity and Economic Development

NUMBER 15

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Congress and federal officers to encourage by legislation and otherwise the production and economic resources of mining production and industry.

 

      Whereas, The lead, zinc, gold, silver and other mineral industries of Nevada and other parts of the United States have been and are being critically injured and curtailed by competing production from abroad, processed by cheap foreign labor; and

      Whereas, The copper industries and other mineral industries of Nevada and other parts of the United States might also be severely damaged in the future by similar competition; and

      Whereas, A healthy domestic mining industry is a key to prosperity and national security, because without such an industry the United States cannot be certain of having the necessary minerals in our economy and for national defense; and

      Whereas, It requires years to develop a productive mine and constant effort is needed in prospecting and development, since mines and mineral processing plants cannot be placed in “mothballs,” and because mines become flooded, timbers rotted, and skilled and able personnel scattered beyond recall, resulting in a crisis when production is attempted to be resumed promptly; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the basic industries hereinbefore mentioned in this preamble should by the Congress of the United States, by effective legislation, either by tariff or other reasonable effective methods, be encouraged, protected and developed so that the economy of the mining areas within the State of Nevada and elsewhere within these United States be kept prosperous, and the United States itself be kept strong and in a position to weather either short or prolonged periods of world and national crises; and be it further

      Resolved, That a certified copy of this resolution be by the secretary of state of Nevada transmitted to our representatives in the Congress of the United States and to the Secretary of the Interior.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

      Whereas, Reciprocity on commercial motor vehicle registration has existed for many years between the two states; and

      Whereas, The bulk of the commercial motor vehicles engaged in interstate commerce between Nevada and California are domiciled in California; and

      Whereas, A similar requirement in Nevada would result in great hardship on the California carrier industry; and

      Whereas, Other comparable cities and cities having a smaller population and lesser economic position in the State of Nevada have regular air transportation service; and

      Whereas, In view of the mission and purpose of the Civil Aeronautics Board, the board is urged by the people of Ely, Nevada, and the legislature of the State of Nevada to take administrative action necessary to the providing of an adequate air service to Ely, Nevada; now, therefore, be it

      Whereas, Under the Federal Property and Administrative Service Act of 1949, certain surplus properties are made available to the states and their political subdivisions for educational purposes; and

      Whereas, In Nevada, fire trucks and equipment are needed in almost every community, and other heavy equipment is needed by cities, counties and districts in the state; and

every community, and other heavy equipment is needed by cities, counties and districts in the state; and

      Whereas, The municipally owned water systems of the state could use surplus pipe and fittings to advantage; and

      Whereas, Under the provisions of existing law, the donation or sale of such surplus property cannot be made to the various political subdivisions of the State of Nevada; and

      Whereas, There are presently pending in the Congress of the United States two bills designated as S. 1004 and H. R. 3322, the purposes of which are to amend the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 so as to improve the administration of the program for the utilization of surplus property for educational and public health purposes; and

      Whereas, The enactment of the proposed amendments by the Congress would not authorize disposition of surplus property to the political subdivisions of the State of Nevada; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That our Senators and Representatives in the Congress of the United States take immediate action attempting to amend the bills pending in the Congress to include the political subdivisions of a state as possible recipients of federal surplus property; and be it further

      Resolved, That a certified copy of this resolution be transmitted by the secretary of state of the State of Nevada to each of our Senators and to our Representative in the Congress of the United States.

Senate Joint Resolution No. 6–Senator Whitacre

NUMBER 20

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Congress of the United States to enact legislation to encourage local and state development of small irrigation and reclamation projects.

 

      Whereas, During the sessions of the 83d Congress of the United States, proposed legislation was introduced to authorize the Secretary of the Interior to participate with water users’ organizations or other public bodies organized under state law, in the construction of water resource development projects for irrigation and reclamation; and

      Whereas, Such proposed legislation contained provisions that project plans should be submitted to the Secretary of the Interior by such organizations, showing allocated costs of various units of the project, and if approved by the Secretary of the Interior and the governor of the state, or his agent, the Secretary of the Interior, subject to certain provisions specified in the bills, could contribute funds equal to the allocation for nonreimbursable functions under reclamation law; and

      Whereas, By such proposed legislation, the Secretary of the Interior was to be authorized to make loans with a maximum repayment term of 40 years to such local groups for work on reclamation projects; and

      Whereas, The 83d Congress of the United States failed to enact into law any bill of this type giving relief and assistance to small irrigation and reclamation projects to accomplish the reclamaton of arid and semiarid lands; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the Congress of the United States, now assembled in Washington, D. C., enact into law provisions to supplement the federal reclamation laws, as recommended by the National Reclamation Association, and incorporated in the Small Projects bills, which apply in the 17 western states, and particularly in the State of Nevada, to accomplish the reclamation of arid and semi-arid lands, permitting states and their agencies, including interstate bodies, to undertake the construction, operation and maintenance of projects to supply water for irrigation and municipal purposes, to drain lands in connection with irrigation, and to generate or furnish pumping power, all in cooperation with the Secretary of Interior in connection with the financing of such project works when national benefits from functions considered nonreimbursable under reclamation law will result therefrom; and be it further

      Resolved, That duly certified copies of this resolution be transmitted by the secretary of state of the State of Nevada to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President pro tempore of the Senate, the Secretary of the Interior, and to our United States Senators and the Congressman from the State of Nevada.

      Whereas, The economy of the State of Nevada is dependent upon the mining industry; and

      Whereas, Present indications are that Nevada will be a producer of uranium ore; now, therefore, be it

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Congress of the United States to take whatever steps may be necessary to assure adequate care and maintenance and needed expansion of national forest recreational areas in the State of Nevada.

 

      Whereas, The public camp and picnic grounds and other recreational areas on national forest lands within the State of Nevada are of ever-increasing importance because the rate of population growth of the state is the fastest in the nation, and because vacation travel in the state is also increasing rapidly; and

      Whereas, Outdoor recreation, to which these forest areas are of much importance, is a valuable part of the economy of the State of Nevada; and

      Whereas, The United States Forest Service does not have funds sufficient to maintain existing facilities, much less expand them as the need requires; and

      Whereas, Funds are also lacking to preserve proper conditions of sanitation in the areas, thus in some cases threatening the usefulness of scarce and invaluable watersheds; now, therefore, be it

NUMBER 23, AJR 31

Assembly Joint Resolution No. 31–Mr. Wood

NUMBER 23

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Congress of the United States to allow the 1934 Trade Agreements Act to expire on June 12, 1955, so that the regulation of foreign trade and the laying of tariffs and import fees will immediately vest in Congress as the constitution requires and thereby stop the lowering of the American standard of living by the importation of foreign-made goods.

 

      Whereas, The legislature of the State of Nevada is aware of the fact that the selective so-called “free trade” policy, adopted by the State Department of the United States under the provisions of the trade agreements act of 1934, is lowering the American living standard through the lowering of wages and is causing unemployment and a subsequent decline of the demand for minerals, agricultural products and other commodities produced in the State of Nevada; and

      Whereas, The indiscriminate lowering of import fees and tariffs, without regard to the differential between the costs of production due largely to the difference in living standards of this nation and foreign competitive nations, has a demoralizing effect on the mining and agricultural markets of this country and thereby causes unemployment and loss of labor; and

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1955 Statutes of Nevada, Page 941 (File Number 23, AJR 31)ê

 

without regard to the differential between the costs of production due largely to the difference in living standards of this nation and foreign competitive nations, has a demoralizing effect on the mining and agricultural markets of this country and thereby causes unemployment and loss of labor; and

      Whereas, The State of Nevada is in a particularly vulnerable position in attempting to compete with foreign sweatshop labor because the products produced in Nevada, such as livestock, wool, tungsten, lead, zinc, copper, magnesite, chemicals, manganese, mercury, silicon and many others, are readily importable at a lower cost from sources outside of this country under the so-called reciprocal trade act, all to the great detriment and economic hardship of this state; and

      Whereas, Many mining companies in the State of Nevada are practically shut down and almost all of the zinc miners are out of work and the cattle industry is being endangered because our ranchers cannot compete with the importation of hides, beef or live cattle from Argentina or Mexico; and

      Whereas, The haphazard lowering of the floor under wages and investments represented by the tariffs and import fees destroys American workingmen and shifts their jobs to foreign soil; and, as a result, many of our mines, mills and factories have been closed and our farm production saved only by subsidies; and

      Whereas, Those industries which depend upon the power of Hoover Dam and Davis Dam are in danger because similar products are being imported at a price less than production costs in this state; and

      Whereas, The Nevada wool industry has found it impossible to compete with the importation of wool from Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere; and, for the first time, the wool industry of Nevada is only being saved from destruction by the use of subsidies; and

      Whereas, It is essential to the protection of the American standard of living that world trade should only be on the basis of fair and reasonable competition and based on the principle that foreign products produced by underpaid labor should not be admitted to this country on terms which endanger the living standard of our workers, farmers and miners; and

      Whereas, Article I, section 8 of the constitution of the United States requires that Congress should lay duties, imposts and excises and regulate foreign commerce, but the Congress of the United States has abrogated its constitutional duties by virtue of the trade agreements act of 1934 by transferring the duty of fixing tariffs to the executive department of the government which has, in turn, carried out policies inconsistent with the welfare of American agriculture, industry, and commerce; and

      Whereas, The free trade policies fostered by the State Department under the 1934 trade agreements act have resulted in our dependence upon foreign nations across one or both major oceans for many of the materials and minerals which we would need to fight a war and to prepare our own defense and thus stifled the initiative to explore, develop and produce such needed materials in our own country; and after having become dependent on foreign sources for critical materials the foreign countries have been able to cause us great embarrassment by manipulation of export permits and fees so that we must bow to their demands and submit to international blackmail; and

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1955 Statutes of Nevada, Page 942 (File Number 23, AJR 31)ê

 

the foreign countries have been able to cause us great embarrassment by manipulation of export permits and fees so that we must bow to their demands and submit to international blackmail; and

      Whereas, The United States has in the last several decades only been able to prosper because of war or the threat of war and under this cover of war the industrially inexperienced State Department has been wrecking the national economy by the simple expedient of tampering with tariff or import fees so as to open the door to foreign commodities, which in turn prevents the flow of venture capital into the business stream of the nation even in time of emergency since investors know that when the emergency is over their investment will be destroyed through foreign sweatshop labor competition; and

      Whereas, It is mandatory to the future economical growth and development of this country, and Nevada in particular, that the 1934 trade agreements act be allowed to expire on June 12, 1955, so that Congress can immediately recover its constitutional responsibility to regulate foreign trade through the adjustment of tariffs and import fees, and with such an expiration of the act the so-called trade agreements already made and in effect will in no way be affected but will continue in effect for their full terms; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the legislature of the State of Nevada most respectfully memorializes the Congress of the United States to stop the dreadful deterrent to American economic well-being and the lowering of our standard of living and that it return to its traditional and constitutional method of fixing tariffs based on the principle of protecting American industry, agriculture and commerce by allowing the 1934 trade agreements act to expire by its own force and limitation on June 12, 1955; and be it further

      Resolved, That until the expiration of the agreement, the Department of state should exercise its powers in fixing tariffs only in accordance with the traditional principles of American policy as set forth in this resolution until such time as the responsibility for regulating foreign commerce be vested where it belongs, in the Congress of the United States; and be it further

      Resolved, That the Congress of the United States after June 12, 1955, should set up a flexible import fee which would be based upon fair and reasonable competition administered by a reorganized and experienced tariff commission functioning much in the same manner as the long-established interstate commerce commission so that the market for foreign goods in this country would be based on a fair and reasonable competition with our own agricultural, industrial and mining production; and be it further

      Resolved, That copies of this resolution, duly certified by the secretary of state of the State of Nevada, be promptly transmitted by him to the President and Vice President of the United States, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President pro tempore of the Senate, and the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Commerce, and to the United States Senators and Congressman from Nevada.

NUMBER 24

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Congress of the United States to expedite development of economic use of atomic energies with particular applicability to the State of Nevada.

 

      Whereas, Peacetime, commercial use of atomic power appears imminent through recent scientific and industrial advances; and

      Whereas, In vast areas of the State of Nevada power is available only in limited quantities at extraordinarily high cost, which areas have valuable resources such as arable land, underground water, mineral resources, and other public resources that could be developed for the good of the State of Nevada and the United States if power were available at reasonable cost; and

      Whereas, Much of the land of the State of Nevada has been set aside by the federal government and is used for the testing of atomic weapons, to the detriment of certain economic interests in this state, thus creating in a sense a moral obligation to give to the State of Nevada the benefits as well as the disadvantages of atomic energy; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the United States Senators and Congressmen representing the State of Nevada in the United States Congress are hereby memorialized by this legislature to expedite in all possible ways the developments necessary for economical use of atomic energy for peacetime and commercial uses, and the application of such energy in the development and utilization of natural resources such as exist in great quantities in the State of Nevada; and be it further

NUMBER 25

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the President of the United States, the Postmaster General and Congress to recognize officially the discovery of the Comstock Lode in 1859, and to issue a centennial stamp in commemoration thereof.

 

      Whereas, On January 28, 1859, four men began some chance new diggings in the vicinity of Gold Hill, Nevada, and shortly thereafter Henry T. P. Comstock claimed the Ophir Discovery, which was originally thought merely to be heavy black dirt, but subsequently proved to be the astoundingly rich gold and silver ore which made Virginia City, Nevada, the richest and most famous mining community of all time; and

      Whereas, Nevada was virgin western country at this time and was not organized as a territory until 1861, and was admitted to the Union as a state on October 31, 1864, at the height of the Civil War; and

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1955 Statutes of Nevada, Page 944 (File Number 25, SJR 11)ê

 

not organized as a territory until 1861, and was admitted to the Union as a state on October 31, 1864, at the height of the Civil War; and

      Whereas, It was at the special instance and request of President Abraham Lincoln that statehood for Nevada was sought and pressed, so that throughout the great conflict between the states the producing treasure of Virginia City aided mightily the cause of the North in winning ultimate victory; and

      Whereas, The revenue and riches attributable to the first discovery in 1859 not only enhanced greatly the victory in the Civil War, but also contributed immensely to the construction of San Francisco and the enrichment of California in general; and

      Whereas, The Comstock was the first silver mining camp in the United States and its discovery brought a new era not only to California and Nevada, but to the entire West; and

      Whereas, The bonanza days lifted California out of a disheartening depression and rejuvenated San Francisco, which in 1860 was but a ragged little town of 52,000 persons, and enabled the city in 1861 to build more fine, substantial brick buildings than in all of its previous years and thus start it on a growth that has never since ceased; and

      Whereas, During the Civil War the production of the Comstock mines, of over 50 million dollars, was of such aid to the National Government that in 1865 President Lincoln stated to United States Senator Stewart from Nevada the following:

      “We need as many loyal states as we can get, and the region you represent made it possible for the government to maintain sufficient credit to continue this terrible war for the Union.”; and

      Whereas, The continued production from the Comstock Lode throughout the 1870’s aided in the nation’s recovery and its great industrial expansion; and

      Whereas, The epic story of the Comstock will never die and it is a symbol of the robust and optimistic people throughout our great country; and

      Whereas, The golden memories and unforgettable history of the Comstock are deemed by the legislature of the State of Nevada to be of sufficient importance to warrant commemoration by every possible means and consequently should be recognized in the year 1959 by the issuance of a Silver Centennial Commemorative Stamp by the Government of the United States; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the governor of the State of Nevada be, and hereby is, requested to proclaim a time during the year 1959 for the celebration of the centennial of the discovery of silver, and the founding of the Comstock Lode in 1859, in what is now the State of Nevada; and be it further

      Resolved, That the President, Vice President, Postmaster General and the Congress of the United States be, and hereby are, memorialized and urged to use their good offices to the end that a commemorative postage stamp recording this great and historical event shall be issued during the year 1959; and be it further

      Resolved, That the secretary of state of the State of Nevada be, and hereby is, directed to transmit certified copies of this resolution to the President, Vice President, Speaker of the House and Postmaster General of the United States, the governor of this state, the Nevada and California congressional delegations and Mr.

      Whereas, Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 1 recessed the 47th session of the legislature of the State of Nevada from 3 p. m. Wednesday, February 9, 1955, until Monday, February 14, 1955, for the purpose of allowing the members of the legislature to confer with their constituents concerning the myriad of confusing, complicated and controversial issues facing this session of the legislature; and

      Whereas, The legislators did adhere to this policy by traveling to their respective elective districts to discuss pending legislation and problems with the electorate therein; and

      Whereas, The sojourn was deemed to be a matter of necessity and was within the purview of being a definite and substantial “aid to legislation”; now, therefore, be it

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the United States Post Office Department and the General Services Administration to allow the placement of the historical V. & T. railroad engine and mailcar on the premises of the post office building in Carson City.

 

      Whereas, The legend of the Comstock Lode and Virginia City which rose to incalculable wealth is centered around the railroad that was built to serve the Comstock, namely, the Virginia & Truckee Railroad Co.;


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1955 Statutes of Nevada, Page 947 (File Number 30, AJR 35)ê

 

built to serve the Comstock, namely, the Virginia & Truckee Railroad Co.; and

      Whereas, Over the noble trestles and pastoral tangents of this historical railroad rolled much of the wealth that built San Francisco and financed the careers of ambassadors, princesses and notables of two generations; and

      Whereas, The Virginia & Truckee Railroad Co. was an integral portion of the greatest of all pioneering sagas and was once the richest railroad in the world when measured in terms of return upon its investment and the tangible assets it transported; and

      Whereas, The heroic importance of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad Co. in the history of Nevada is attested to by the fact that the great seal of this state shows the locomotive crossing the Crown Point trestle; and

      Whereas, This famous short line was analogous to the traditions of the Pony Express in that it carried the United States mail through all types of weather and adverse conditions; and

      Whereas, Economic conditions necessitated the abandonment of this great and historical railroad in 1949 without any visible trace of sentiment, much to the regret of the citizenry of this state and much to the detriment of the proud heritage which it achieved; and

      Whereas, Two of the world’s most respected and notable authorities and authors on railroading, Lucius Beebe and Charles Clegg, wrote, in closing their book on the Virginia & Truckee Railroad Company, the following: “When the Virginia & Truckee banks the fires of its engines at last for the long night, as have so many little railroads before it, it will not come back again, for the dead return not. But, like the sparkling Concords that went before it down the dusty highroads of yesterday, its memory will live forever in the minds of men, trailing an unforgotten banner of woodsmoke across the Nevada sagebrush where once the railroad ran.”; and

      Whereas, There is still an opportunity to save some historical remnant of this greatest of all little railroads by virtue of the fact that the chamber of commerce of Carson City, Nevada, has a locomotive and a small mailcar which it is desirous of placing on display as an outstanding tourist attraction and monument; and

      Whereas, The United States Post Office Building in Carson City is also known as a historical classic and tourist attraction and it is centrally located with adequate surrounding area for the placement of this exhibit in an appropriate manner; and

      Whereas, Such a project would be without expense to the Federal Government and the only condition which would be imposed would be the right to remove the train should a new post office building subsequently be constructed; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the legislature of the State of Nevada respectfully memorializes the United States Post Office Department, by and through the Postmaster General, and the General Services Administration to investigate and examine the feasibility of placing the locomotive and cars of the historical Virginia & Truckee Railroad Co. on the grounds of the post office building in Carson City, Nevada, at no expense to the Federal Government with the only condition being imposed that the chamber of commerce of Carson City reserves the right to remove the equipment whenever the post office building is abandoned and removed or a new building constructed; and be it further

NUMBER 33

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the President and Congress of the United States to take appropriate action to facilitate national centennial celebrations in commemoration of the 1857 act of Congress allowing the creation of the Pacific Overland Mail route; urging local agencies and groups to cooperate therein; commending the American Association for State and Local History; and other matters properly relating thereto.

 

      Whereas, By act of Congress of the United States, dated March 3, 1857, the Postmaster General of the United States was, for the first time, authorized to contract for the conveyance overland from the Mississippi River to San Francisco, California, of all letter mails; and

      Whereas, Prior to the passage of this act, letter mail was carried to the Pacific coast by the long, slow and arduous ocean route fraught with danger from storm and sea and totally dependent upon the vagaries of the wind and weather; and

      Whereas, The opening of this Overland Mail Service route was the culminating event of a series of events of prime importance, not only to the development of the west and the State of Nevada, but also to the development of the entire United States, and it enabled the word to be spread of the richness of this region and hailed the outstanding discovery of the Comstock Lode in Nevada during the year 1859; and

      Whereas, Centennial celebrations of these events should be fittingly observed throughout the length and breadth of this nation in order to memorialize this historical event and to show the developments from the “four horse coaches, or spring wagons suitable for the conveyance of passengers, as well as the safety and security of the mails,” as specified in the original 1857 act, to 1957; and

NUMBER 34

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Congress of the United States and the congressional delegation from the State of Nevada to forbear any action leading to the termination of the federal trusteeship over American Indian wards and properties held in trust for American Indians.

 

      Whereas, The American Indians have not, as an ethnic group, attained even minimum standards of self-sufficiency in the United States; and

      Whereas, Any congressional action leading to the termination of federal trusteeships over American Indian wards, or of properties held in trust for American Indians, would result in a severe deprivation of the small number of rights and privileges now enjoyed by American Indians in the State of Nevada and would lead to an intolerable, added burden to local and state government in Nevada in attempting to provide the necessities of life to American Indians in Nevada; and

      Whereas, It would be extremely beneficial to the American Indians in the State of Nevada and to other citizens of the State of Nevada that the Bureau of Indian Affairs continue its commendable work in providing aid to American Indians in the State of Nevada; now, therefore, be it

      Whereas, Federal funds are appropriated annually to the United States Geological Survey for a program of cooperative investigation of water resources, wherein the federal allotment matches the state allotment in amount; and

      Whereas, Cooperative agreements for water resource studies are in effect between the United States Geological Survey and the Nevada state engineer; and

      Whereas, Still further reductions are in prospect, with a probable ratio of $85 federal to $100 state for the fiscal year 1955-56 unless the Congress appropriates an adequate amount, and these deficiencies will result in discontinuance of some streamflow measuring stations and inadequate rehabilitation and maintenance of existing stations; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the Congress of the United States hereby is requested to appropriate adequate funds to the United States Geological Survey to carry out the traditional practice of 100 percent matching of all state offerings for the purpose of continuing the program of cooperative investigation of water resources; and be it further

NUMBER 40

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Nevada congressional delegation to join in petitioning the Congress to amend present laws so as to enable a highway to be constructed as part of the interstate highway system between Utah and Colorado without regard to present mileage limitations.

 

      Whereas, At the present time no proper link exists between Utah and Colorado in the interstate highway system; and

      Whereas, In case of an enemy attack the present highway system is not adequate to evacuate urban areas and to transport the military forces to defend this vital area rich with natural resources; and

      Whereas, One of the main impediments to the desired route is the statutory limitation on mileage in the interstate highway system; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the legislature of the State of Nevada memorializes and requests the Nevada congressional delegation to join in petitioning Congress to amend the present law by extension of the mileage limitation in an amount sufficient to permit a highway to be constructed between Utah and Colorado as part of the interstate highway system; or, as an alternative, to recommend that the law be amended to permit the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Commerce, by joint agreement, to decide where inequality and need exists and thus enable them to add any route that they consider as being necessary without regard to the present mileage limitations; and be it further

      Whereas, The severe winter of 1952 has revealed to the nation, what many have long suspected, that the Sierra Nevada mountain passes on the main traffic and truck lines of the central transcontinental routes across this country are woefully inadequate and can be blocked for long periods of time by forces of nature as effectually as they could be blocked by an atomic bomb, enemy military action or sabotage; and


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1955 Statutes of Nevada, Page 955 (File Number 41, SJR 14)ê

 

      Whereas, The military commitments of this nation in the past two decades have expended greatly in the Pacific Ocean areas and the lands adjacent thereto, and much of the military personnel and material is shipped from the San Francisco bay area as the principal Pacific Coast port; and

      Whereas, This great and strategic port cannot function unless the materials are brought thereto over the Sierra Nevada ranges and, as a primary target for enemy attack or sabotage, in case of an emergency it would require supplies and reinforcements over the central transcontinental route; and

      Whereas, Weather conditions or unforeseen difficulties on the narrow and obsolete central routes, functioning with the same limited capacity of 20 years ago, could jeopardize and impair the safety and fighting ability of the entire United States; and

      Whereas, More than 20 major department of defense supply depots, tactical establishments and experimental installations are located in the intermountain areas and served only by the transcontinental routes; and

      Whereas, The people of the State of Nevada and all other western states have continually clamored for the improvement of these routes and have beseeched governmental officials to rectify the intolerable condition of these Sierra Nevada highways in order to facilitate normal travel for business and pleasure as well as the mandatory need for civil and military defense measures; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the legislature of the State of Nevada hereby memorializes and requests that the Nevada congressional delegation in Congress take every action available to them, collectively and individually, to bring about and effectuate the immediate modernization of a major Sierra Nevada highway by promoting, proposing, instigating and insisting that it be widened to four lanes; and be it further

      Resolved, That the President of the United States be respectfully requested to include this project as one of the main objectives of his highly commendable and necessary highway program; and be it further

      Resolved, That if the necessary funds are not made available immediately for this essential project of making a transcontinental highway over the Sierra Nevada mountains four lanes, that the Nevada congressional delegation and those from other western states be memorialized to request the utilization of defense funds in order that the security of the vital San Francisco bay area can be assured at the earliest possible moment to insure the availability of supplies and reinforcements in the event of enemy action or sabotage; and be it further

      Resolved, That the secretary of state of the State of Nevada be, and he hereby is, directed to promptly transmit certified copies of this highly important resolution to the President and Vice President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, the governors of Nevada, California, Utah and Idaho, and the esteemed Senators and Representative in the House of Representatives from Nevada.
