Raleigh, Aug. 31. —School men who
have renui'ked the t of |
Superintendent R. H. Latham. of
Winston-Salem, declare this is just
the prelude to an exodus from the
ranks which will startle the State.
For several years your bureau has
been hearing that school men are go
ing to retire from their profession
and that quite a few of them will go
into politics professionally. Numer
ous counties in the State have prorn-
Vjiemt •superinllrnd'enMs who talk of •
resignations and candidate sfor the
General Assembly. Thera have been
some gestures toward resignation, but
the declaration of candidacy is not
yet made.
At the recent bar examination Su
perintendent R. E. Sentelle, of Bruns
wick county, and Principal C. E.
Vlenaingcr’, 'of Hugh iTjgh
Raleigh, were licensed. Whether they
will go into the law now or even
tually has not been announced. The
same law examination attracted Dr.
James S. Mitchiner Ser/fcciarisit *md
his studious habits achieved for ljim
as it did for the school men, a license.
Not all law licentiates use their
right to practice. The newspaper of
fice and the schoolrooms are full of
individuals who never did engage in
(regular practice. But for the first
time in many years the empirical law
practice appears to furnish as much
prospect of pay and excitement as the
teaching profession does.
But chiefly these retirements are
believed to be the introduction to new
field)! basfdtes old t i cis. School man
have fared famously in industry. In
Durham there is a legend that some
37 or 33 years /ago Clinton White
Toms, superintendent of the city sys

WITH FARM ICES
Tobacco and Cotton Farm
ers Selling Now, and
They Cannot Wait
Dally Dispatch Rareau,
In the Sir Walter Hotel
Raleigh, August, 31 —Dr. Clarence
Poe commends cotton arj/1 tobacco
faimers, some of whom are here today
agitating for better prices, and the
editor of the Proggressi'vc Farmer
Ihopes that what he regards the “too
gradual plan of the administration”
will be hurried by these protests.
“Unless somethingr is done to boost
cotton and tobacco prices right away,”
Dr. Poe says, “cotton and tobacco
farmers are out of luck for 12 months
to come. They Will have no more
“pay days” until the autumn of 1934.
“General Johnson seems especially
anxious to hold down prices until the
NRA can get under way. But. mean
time. the cotton and tobacco farmers’
whole 1933 production is be'ng sold.
The danger is that they will sell on
the basis of relatively low price lev
els and then have to buy everything
in 1934 on the basis of very much
higher price levels.”
Dr. Poe said the administration ap
pears to be trying to restore the 1924-
25 price levels, but says the process
is too gradual. “It is all right for fac
tory workers, whose wages can bo

week, or for factory owners,” Dr.
