The House assembled at 6:30 P.M.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, the Rev. Dr. Alton C. Clark as follows:
As we prepare to hear our Governor this evening in his "State of the State" message, keep us aware, O Lord, that he and the Legislature will not be in perfect agreement at all times. So may we always be knowledgeable of the fact that differences of opinion reflect the democratic processes at work. But when a program comes up from the first floor and a Bill goes down from the second floor, every citizen in South Carolina has a right to expect that both Governor and Legislature are committed to a government which serves the best interest of all the people.
Help us to remember to do our part. Amen.

The President of the Senate introduced Governor Campbell who then addressed the Joint Assembly as follows:
"Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the Joint Assembly, my fellow South Carolinians... Tonight was to have been the time to give a State of the State address to the people of South Carolina and to the General Assembly. There, however, is much greater business at hand for America. America is at war. And it is not the time for the smaller problems of South Carolina to be discussed. It is a time for all of us to stand behind our men and women in uniform. Three of our colleagues have been called to service. Senator Phil Leventis, Representative Jim Harrison and Senator Mike Mullinax has been called up, though he is not in the Middle East. Let us remember them. Let us stand united behind America. I expect the President of the United States to address the nation sometime tonight. God bless America."
Upon the conclusion of his address, Governor Campbell and his escort party retired from the Chamber.
The purposes of the Joint Assembly having been accomplished, the President announced that under the terms of the Concurrent Resolution the Joint Assembly would recede from business.
