R. Calls Budget Director To White House For Conference WASHINGTON, Jan. 27. — <#> — The Agriculture department’s huge regular supply bill, pared drastically by the budget bureau, has been trimmed still further by a house ap propriations subcommittee, mem bers reported today. The bill, scheduled for house con sideration Tuesday, is expected to furnish the session’s crucial test of congressional economy sentiment because it involves a variety of projects popular with many mem bers. Meanwhile, President Roosevelt called Budget Director Harold D. Smith—his only visitor of the day— to the White House for a confer ence. There were no details as to what was discussed but Stephen T. Early, presidential secretary, told newsmen the topic was “budge tary difficulties.” Early’s statement stirred conjec ture over whether Mr. Roosevelt talked to Smith about the possi bility of restoring funds for twc White House agencies — the Na tional Resources Planning board and the office of government re ports—eliminated by the house last week—or whether he was concerned primarily with congressional slashes already made in part of his “bed rock” budget estimate. .

Local Schools Slowly Regaining Ranking In Teachers9 Training Star-News Bureau, Sir Walter Hotel. By HENRY AVERILL RALEIGH. Jan. 27. — North Carolina’s average school teachei has had three and two-thirds years college training — in other words practically all the state’s teachers are college graduates with but £ few of lesser training. Five years ago, the average teacher training was just short o; three years college work, ter years ago it was barely above t.w’< years, and as recently as fifteer years ago the average Tar Hee teacher had only one year in col lege to his credit. These figures, released in th< most recent number of State Schoo Facts, published by the Depart ment of Public Instruction, are fo; all teachers, white and colored Teachers of both races have showi remarkable advances in trainins during the past decade and a half but the progress of the negr< teachers has been even more re markable than that of the whites For the school year 1923-24 the av erage training of all negro teach ers was less than high school grad uation. For 1938-39 this average had risen to three and one-third years of college work. In the same period training of white teachers advanced, on the average, from something like one and one-third years of college training to three and four-fifths years college work. School Facts assigned numerical values to the training as follows: 100 for one year’s high school, 200 for two years high school, 300 for three years and 400 for high school graduates. 500, 600, 700 and 800 represent one, two, three and four years college training. Expressed in that way the pres ent experience index of all North ’ Carolina teachers stands at 766.6, with white teachers getting 779.6 and negro teachers 733.5. Based on these ratings, the teach ers of Alexander county stand at the head of all county systems in training, their combined ratings falling less than three points short of a perfect score, with 797.3 (its white teachers have the perfect . score, its negro teachers rate 776.9) Standing out in this record is the fact that ten years ago Alexan der’s combined training rating was 86th among the hundred counties, showing 535.5 for white teachers (93rd place) and 345.5 for its ne groes (86th place). Guilford’s county system (one of two to maintain its relative rank during the decade, the other being tenth place Stanly) comes second with 793.4 (white 794.3, negro 788.1). rn rnira place uaoarrus cuumy shows one of the big jumps in the i list. Its white teachers now rate the perfect 800, against 619.7 and 56th place in 1928-9, while its negro rating of 746.9 puts it currently in 27th place as compared with 392.4 and 71st place ten years ago. New Hanover, which led all county systems of the state ten years ago has fallen to twelfth place in the complete standings of today, despite an advance from 713.1 to 7S1.8. * T t i t r a i, » e PAY PER HOUR (IN MOTION PICTURE INDUSTRY] U.
