on liie Ibth of April, ly09, there were
, present representatives of -eight South
ern States. At the meeting there were
six presidents and four heads of
schools of education.
jiecsl High Schools.
"It was the unanimous belief q>f
i those present that there is no greater
want in the field of Southern educal
tion than the need for high school
t'flp.hf>rs. Wp could Droduce statistics
and other evidence to establish this
proposition, but we belike the facts
are already known to you. It is quite
true, and we believe that it is quite
evident, that this n ed will continue,
though we trust that adequate provisions
will be made to supply this demand
after some years.
"In every one of the universities
represented a b'ginning has been
made to supply this need. Those be
ginning, in spite of the very meagre
suppoi. v:hich the universities have
been able to supply, are ful cf promise.
It was apparent from the interchange
of opinions that the specific
conditions and needs of the several
universities varied, and on this account
we do not present in detail a
nlan for expenditure.
"It is our opinion that the widest
and most permanent good will be accomplished
by encouraging the school
of education in the several States. |
To Supply Teachers.
"We believe that the school of education
in the State university is the
natural medium through which this
n-eed of high school teachers should
be supplied, and we feel assured that
it is the most economical method of
meeting the demand. Separate teachers'
colleges we consider entire^ beyond
the ability of the States. The
excellent normal schools supply a
training inefficient in extent, and in
some cases do not even admit male
stud-ents to registration.
"We believe^ that the young man
trained in the State university and
having taken a course in its school of
*?*lucation is best prepared to serve
3 State as a high school teacher.
"If, as we confidently believe, the
need of high school teachers is urgent
and a school of education in the
State university is the best and most
suitable method of supplying this
need, we most earnestly request that
your honorable body donate $100,000
to each State university in those
States heretofore participating in this
fund, for the training of white teachers,
and the remainder for the training
of negro teachers in the same

of the fund, alter giving $100,000 to

in the Southern States, was in view of
the terms of the Peabody trust," which
co t mpiated that in the use and distribution
of this fund the negroes of
the South should be kept in mind and
eiven a nart thereof. In all of the
communications from the Peabody
' board to Southern educators, with
reference to the use and final distribution
of this fund, it was always
made clear that the negroes of the
South would receive a share of this
fund in accordance with the terms of

1906, the difference between the policy
of the trustees as finally adopted
and the papers, as submited by the
Southern educators, being that the
. latter named $100,000 as the amount

universities, while the trustees only
gave $40,000 to some of them, and
$fj.000 to the others. Und r the recommendation
as contained in this paper,
the negroes cf the South would
have recived less than they did actually
receive in their final distribution
of the Peabody fund.
Wintlirop (jot $90,000.
We find that in the ultimate distri-,
bution of the Peabody fund, which oc- :
j curred in November, 1911, Winthrop ,
college received $90,0o0 and the Uni
versity of South Carolina $6,000, while j
in the other Southern States the universities
received $40,000, except the :
Ui:iveisities of Texas, Missouri and :
Johns Hopkins, which received $6,000 '
each. The negroes of the South re- ;
ceived the sum of $350,000 and the
balance of the fund was given to the !
Peabody Normal college at Nashville, j
Tenn., this latter school receiving in |
all $1,500,000, of which $1,000,000 had ?'
been received before the final distrl- j
bution was made. The other colleges!
of the South similar to Winthrop re- !
ceived nothing in the final distribu-;
tion of this fund.
The testimony before us did not;
show that Winthrop college received j
less by reason of the i-aper submitter j
to the Peabody trustees by f.ne South-:

that while it is to be regretted that
Winthrop college was not r-emember-;
ed in the final distribution of the Pea-!
body fund as Dr. Johnson had had
reasonable ground to expect, still we
think that the Peabody trustees were
alone responsible for this fact.
We recommend that this report, together
with the testimony hereto at-;
tached be printed.
