Get PENETRD BRtfpI New Hanover High School Gets 1 Annex In Issac Bear Building '.this view, taken about 1920, shows the original Isaac Bear school building with the complete enrollment standing before the door. The building has been remodeled and expanded to house many units of the high school across the street. A student employment bureau supply store, and distributive edu cation class are only a few of the new departments now found in the Isaac Bear school which was con verted into a high school anne? last summer after serving faith fully as a grammar school for 3: years. With the enormous enrollment ir the Wilmington schools recently ne cessitating more space and sup plies for Superintendent Roland’s office as well as more classrooms for the high school, this new setup in the Isaac Bear building was suggested and immediately p u i into operation. About 250-300 high school stu dents are in this building each pe riod of the day for various classes in addition to the variety of othei [offices and departments. Mrs. Elizabeth .Williams, busi ness manager of the county nur i scry schools, has an office which serves as one extension to the of fice of Mr. Roland, w h o is in charge of all nursery schools. These four white and three Negro nurseries, which have their head quarters here, are issued supplies, ecipment, toys and instructions from this office. The setting up nt new units or closing out of un necessary units of the nursery pro gram are cared for. All finances are handled through the office, and complete records are kept of all nursery activities and children. The other extension to Mr. Ro land’s downtown office is a suite of rooms under the direction of Mrs. Martha Bennett w'bo handles all textbooks and supplies. In the main office there is found a bin for each New Hanover school into which Mrs. Bennett puts their al loted supplies and equipment when they call in, and from there it is picked up by ihe bus driver lor distribution to 1he proper school. All elementary textbooks are or dered and issued from this office, and an ample supply is kept on hand. This office also issues and orders all office and instructional supplies for all schools as well as a)] elementary library books. Vis ual aid headquarters are here, and a teacher may obtain am of the films when she wants them by ap plying to Mrs. Bonnet! "i-o 1 eeos a complete file of the films and demand-for each. This department owns -18 films in visual education and rents 200 units during the year. Sample library books are rn display for approval and order ing of teachers. The Family Life Education de partment under the direction of Miss Virginia Ward is another di vision nf this old building. This department, which is a community organization, represents a cooper ative effort on the part of these individuals and groups which be lieve that satisf-urm famiW life is the sacred and abiding unit of civ ilization. Some of the specific ways this department works in New Hanover county are study groups, nursery schools, cooperatve play schools, nutrition classes, demon strations and exhibits. Among the needs recognized by neonle in the community are domestic counsel ing, special institutes, preparation for marriage, family recreation, and family devotions. Miss Ward works with all social agencies and tries to help in the home wherever needed. Students make appoint ments with Miss Ward for consul tation about family problems. The former principal’s office now serves as an office for Mrs. ! J. W. Grise, who acts as general supervisor of the offices in this building as well as coordinator be tween these departments and the offices of Mr. Hamilton :n the high school and Mr. Roland downtown. Considering her variety of activi ties Mrs. Grise is generally known as “super-snooper,” she said. She does the business work for the government schools as well as the Family Life Education department and the distributive education class. Mrs. Grise also is m charge of I the placement bureau for high school students desiring to do part time work, and has placed a large per cent of the students in suitable and worthwhile positions in the city. She also places adults in full time work. j There is a room set up for a diversified occupation class, but Uhis class has been discontinued. The distributive education class | which was added to the high school ! schedule only this year has a class ! room in the building with Miss | Edna Fussell as instructor. These • students learn various forms of re : tail merchandising.

At present 300 high school students, many from this class, are being trained by Miss Fussell to work during the coming Christmas holidays.

The Isaac Bear school was a gift to the city of Wilmington in 1912 by Samuel Bear who gave it in memory of his brother, Isaac. The gift consisted of the building and all equipment. The original building, which contained six class rooms and the auditorium, had six teachers. The capacity of students was 250. Miss Julia Hill, who is now re tired and lives at 208 N. Third street, was the first principal and served in that capacity for 26 years. She retired in the spring of 1936. Before assuming the po sition of principal, she had taught in the Old Union School for 14 years. "Starting with 165 pupils the school grew rapidly,” Miss Hill said. "About 1920 four classrooms were added. From then on the school grew more rapidly until in 1930 another addition was made which doubled the original capa city.” At first there were only six grammar grades, but in 1930 the seventh grade was added, and in 1936 the eighth grade was added. There are now 11 classrooms on the second floor with approximate ly the same on the third floor. ?ix hundred is the capacity of the auditorium. "At one time.” Miss Hill said, “they had to rent a place on Ninth street between Princess and Mar ket to house three grades because .he Isaac Bear school was not ade quate for the current enrollment.” When Miss Hill retired in 1936, there was an enrollment of 732 with 19 teachers. -V ATTACK ARSENAL BERN.

War Workers’ Pay •Rate' Shows Little j Increase In Area 1 -- i The basic hourly wage of Wil mington war workers has not in- \ creased, except in rare instances, • since 1941, it was learned Wed-i nesday from Felix A. Scroggs, i manager of the U. S. Employment1 service here, and the trend now appears td be returning to a six day work week. This opinion was expressed by Scroggs after a survey just com pleted of employer’s orders for workers on file in the employment office. There was, Scroggs pointed out, a definite increase in 1942 wages over 1941 wages, due to the longer work-week schedules at local war plants. The schedule ranged from a 48-hour to a 70-hour work week. Overtime paid amounted to one and one-half and double in some cases. In one instance, an employer who had a seven-day work week schedule, 10 hours a day, found af ter several weeks that the effici ency of his workers was so cut that he returned to a six-day week, which resulted in his production per man increasing to nearly the seven-day week production. © King Features Syndicate All Rights JRcssrvsd.
