HOW TO INCREASE PAY OF TEACHERS The Daily Dispatch has been fur nished by Attorney General Dennis G. Rrummitt with the following state ment bearing on possible increases in the pay of school teachers in North Carolina.: “I note in the press of today that State Treasurer, Charles M. Johnson, in an .address before th« Kiwanis Club at Wilmington yesterday, says that “'we must find away" to increase teachers’ salaries. “There is no difficulty in ‘finding’ such away. That way lies in remov ing the tremendous advantages pros perous foreign corporations nave n, taxation over the great mass of our domestic corporations; in the propei taxation of excess profits which some times reach 100 per cent or more on capital stock or the assessed value of corporate property; in building a tax system free and clean of favor anc privilege to the special interests. “The way is easy to be found. Anc* the great mass of our people most of our manufacturers business and professional men merchants, farmers, laborers and domestic corporations generally, as well as teachers, are di rectly interested in ending these abuses. The difficulty li‘ >w in break ing the strangle-hold ol those who do benefit from them. To Cousin’s Funeral—J. C.
