NEGRO STATE NORMAL
ASKS STATE FOR $37,500
Wants a Boys Dormitory, Water and
Sewerage, Laundry, Barn and
The Negro State Normal & Industrial
School at Elizabeth City Is asking the
state for an appropriation of $37,700
this year. Of this amount $12,000 would
be required for maintenance and the
remainder would be expended in ad
, ditions and improvements to the plant.
These -include a boys' dormitory to cost
$20,000; a barn and farming: imple
ments .to cost $2,500; water and sewer
age to cost $2,500, and a laundry to cost
President P. W. Moore laid his re
quest before the appropriations com
mittees of the House and Senate of the
General Assembly Tuesday. He was
supported by a strong delegation of
white people from Elizabeth City.
Strange tho it may sound to the ears
of Elizabeth City folk, the state seems
to look with disfavor upon the idea
of carrying on industrial work at the
State Normal. Representative W. O.
Saunders, who argued the need of in
dustrial and vocation training at the
school before the committees Tuesday,
received little comfort. Mr. Saunders
takes the position that modern educa
tion, for both white and colored, should
be three-fold. It should train the head
heart and hand and that the latter es
pecially should not be neglected in these
times. Religion has been looking after
the heart for severer thousands years;
academic education has been stuffing
heads for several centuries; allto the
neglect of the hand. The modern
teacher should not only be drilled in
academic training but should have a
first hand knowledge of the fundamen
tals of agriculture and mechanics arts
in order to instill a respect for and a
pride in these things among those tc
whom; he will.be sent forth to -teach.
Mr. Saunders thought a little knowledge
of how to make a living ought to go
along with other knowledge provided
by the state.

Lried out the law which prevents sore
eyes In the newly born., -
In 1917 the General Assembly created
a law for .the prevention of sore eyes
in the newly born which provides for
the absolutely free distribution by the

Board of Health of silver nitrate in 2,
6 and 12 drop ampoules to physicians
or midwives for use in the eyes of the
newly born. A violation of this law
constitutes a misdemeanor In North
