April 9.—(AP)— One person was slain and more than a score were injured in a week-end of violent political clashes, which threatened to break out anew in and near Brussels today. A communist was killed in rioting which broke out in connection r with the inaugural of Brussels headquar ters of the nationalist blue shirty. Clathes spread throughout scattered sections after clashes between the uniformed nationalists and bands of communists. . In Brussels ten communists and 13 nationalists were wounded and injur ed in hand-to-hand fighting. The riot ing then was carried into other lo calites. Fears that the fighting would be re newed led political officials to order extraordinary precautions throughout the capital today. Official apprehensions were height ened by a communist statement which warned the nationalists that plans were being made to avenge the death of their comrade. Nationalist headquarters were raid ed and sacked at Eckeren during a clash between blue shirts and social ists in which one socialist was wound ed seriously.

C RABKERVIU. Raleigh, April S|—The $300,000 to S4OO 000 by which -the actual payrol, for the public school teachers in the State will probably exceed the ori ginal estimates hats not come about through carelessness on the part of the State School Commission in esti mating salaries, but almost entirely as the result of its liberality, Leßoy Martin, executive secretary of the commission pointed out today in a statement prepared exclusively for the afternoon newspapers, e also again, asserted that every teacher will be paid in full, even if, the salary re quirements are $400,000 in excess of the original estimates, and regardless of whether Federal aid is obtained from the Emergency Relief Adminis tration or. not. As a result, the amount of the salary cut for school teachers will in many cases be less than the 30 per cent decreed by the 1933 Gen eral Assembly. The reason the salary pftyroll wil probably be between $300,000 and S4OO 000 more than was originally estimat ed is principally due to the fact tha> the School Commission decided to give all teachers credit for the entire number of years they had taught, re gardless of any intervening change in classification. Until- this year a teach er obtained her experience incremerjE only on the basis of the length of time he or she had been teaching under the certificate then in effect. Under this former system a teacher might have taught ten years under a B/grade certificate then have obtained an A-igrade certificate in which case she would not have re ceived any credit for the ten years teaching experience she had under the B-grade certificate. But this year the school commis sion decided that if experience was worth anything to a teacher it should be computed jn a continuous basis without any regard to the type of certificate held. As a result this year if a teacher has taught four years under a B-grade certificate and four years under an A-grade certificate, she is getting a salary based on eight years of teaching experience instead of only four, as would have been the case under the former system. As a result this A-grade teacher is this year getting a salary of S9O a month as compared with a salary of SIOO a month a year ago w.hich is a reduc tion of only 10 per cent instead ol 30 per cent. More A-Grade Teachers. Another factor that was not fore seen by the school commission, has been that more teachers with A-grade certificates were employed this year than ever before which with the ad ditional allowance for teaching expei (Continued on Page Four.)
