FAYETTEVILLE, Nov. 13 —
This week we ran across three
enthusiastic and effective boost

the people to the point of con
stant bragging. Wednesday in
Clinton we met again Norman
McCullough, associate editor of
{he Bladen Journal and the
Sampson Independent. Norman
cgn turn out a tremendous
amount of work but however
busv he is he finds the time to
say something and to do some
thing he thinks will develop
further this section of the State.

,,f the Prince Charles Hotel in
Fayetteville we met Victor W.
Lewis, general live stock agent
for the Atlantic Coast Line Rail

one of the most valuable men

Thursday night we attended
the dinner honoring the N.C.E.A.
unit presidents in the Southeast
district. This includes the coun
ty school systems and the city
school systems in Bladen, Bruns
wick, Columbus, Cumberland,
Duplin. Hoke, Jones, New Han
over, Onslow, Pender, Robeson,
Sampson and Scotland counties.
We were seated between John
Vickers, advertising manager for
the N.C.E.A. Journal and Mrs.
Ray president of the Onslow
County unit and found them in
teresting and informative din
ner companions. This was the
143rd. consecutive teachers meet
ing for Vickers, and that means
meeting and being with a lot of
teachers. V. I . White, principal
of the Fayetteville High School. I
presided. The annual reports of
the unit heads showed a keen
interest in professional ethics, an
effort to get all the teachers to
add qualification by summer
L,tudv. having delegates to distric'
and state meetings, and a grow
ing interest in public relations
There was a rather full dis
cussion of the need to take to
the public, to the parents, to
civic clubs and all those not en
gaged in education, the story of

this happening to you. Just sprinkle a

comfortable. Does not sour. Checks

he schools and the need for pop
ular education, and the outline
i of what the schools are seeking
to accomplish., Mrs. E. P. Brock
represented the New Hanover
county unit and brought forth
a lot of questions with her re
port on the surveys and studies
of how to solve the teacher load
problem, of tax schedules and
other professional matters. Miss
Perkins, the State secretary, re
quested copies of the findings in
j New Hanover county for the per
manent files of the State office
and for the information of all
other units in the State. Miss
Elizabeth Maultsby, head of the
Whiteville unit elicited unani
mous commendation for the fine
work being done by the teach
ers in that city school system.
Mr. Beeker, head of the Robe
son county unit, made an ex
cellent report on plans for the
immediate future. By the way
the subject of his master’s thesis
was “Wilmington in the War Be
tween The States,” which thesis
he is enlarging into a book. He
extended us an invitation to at
tend the Rowland Lions club.
The main event of the district
meeting was the address Friday
morning by Dr. Ralph McDon
ald, executive secretary for the
Department of Higher Educa
tion of the I nal Education
association. He stressed a be
ginning salary of $2,400 for quali
fied teachers, with periodic in
creases for acceptable service up
to $6,000 at least. His main em
phasis was that the fight for \
higher qualification of teachers
must be waged by the teachers,
just as the fight for higher quali
fications of doctors was waged
by doctors. To this end he urged
transforming the goals of teach
ers associations into legislative
requirements; better support for
teachers’ schools; a larger per
centage of tax receipts allocated
to education; a more enthusiastic
and a more determined profes
sional organization of teachers,
and an unceasing campaign to
acquaint the public with the aims
of teachers.
In conclusion Dr. McDonald
deplored the evident and sub
stantial loss in educational stand
ards in North Carolina in the
past seven years; the oss of quali
fied men in the teaching profes
sion: and used as his climax and
peroration to guide North Caro
I lina back into educational advan
ces must come from teachers in
spired by educational needs and
the importance of the responsibi
lities resting upone *eachers.
V. R. White, principal of the
Fayetteville High School, won
praise from every person in at
tendance for the fine considera
tion he showed as host. Indeed,
the entire city of Fayetteville,
went out of its way to make the
teachers welcome and to give
them an eniovable stay.
