All person's indebted to the estate will make immediate payment to the undersigned. This 26th day of September, 1973. Lillie T. Hunter, 519 Uzzle Street, Durham, N. C. 27707 Carolina Times: Sept 29, October 6, 13, 10, 1973 The circles of the church life of this eastern town began to realize Wednesday, when the funeral of Rev. Joseph Clinton Sawyer, 48, was held at St. Augustus AME Zion Church1, at 11:00 a.m., that his sudden death on Saturday night, Sept. 12, had cast a gloom over the community that would not soon move away. The news of his death spread quickly, but it was not recognized as such a blow until Bishops W. A. Stewart and A. G. Dunston, followed by other clergymen, led the procession into the church, to pay last respects to the fallen pastor, former farm agent, NAACP leader, civic personality and champion of human rights. Once the solemn procession began its slow movement into the church, he had pastored for 11 years, and the strains of the funeral dirge echoed back, the crowd slowly took it seat to hear the last sad rites. Even though the two prelates, with whom he had worked, since resigning from the position of farm agent in Chowan County, were. to say the last words, the mute evidence of how he had wrought, spoke in glowing terms. ' ' : The farmers he had aided in bringing forth better yield, and towns people, he had worked so hard for, to bring to a fuller life of human rights and dignity, the city planners and officials, with whom he had worked to make Kinston a better place to live, with bowed heads, all realized that a great servant had gone. Rev. Sawyer was born in Edenton and after finishing the prescribed courses of Edenton High School, he attended A & T College, where he received a degree in agricultural science. He went back to his native county and married the former Etta Turner in 1943. He had shown a unique interest in church work and decided to enter the ministry. He had built a background for same, as a child, at Caanan Temple AME Zion Church. He moved quickly up and on. He pastored in JamesvOle and Williamston, taking over the pastorate of St. Augustus, in 1961. He soon found that the congregation needed a hew edifice and started plans to build one. The building stands as a credit to his administeria! ability and the leadership he gave his parishneers. He served on the Board of Education, the Recreation Committee and as a chaplain at Lenoir County Hospital. He worked diligently on voter registration and by so doing gave the Black community much stature in the affairs in Kinston. When it was apparent that the local branch of the NAACP was losing its viability, he led the reorganization to a more viable Chamberlin Studio Announces August Honor Rolls The Chamberlain Studio under the direction of Mrs. Margaret Shearin has announced the following honor 'roll students for the month of August. 1 " ft ; First Honor Roll Tonya Holeman, Karen King, Rita Page, and Sandra Smith.

Come, now, do you really believe Uncle Sam is putting up 30 cents of every dollar to operate the public school systems in your community and across the nation? ' And do you think it should chip in even more? If so, you are probably with the majority of the public on both counts, Dr. Helen D. Wise, president of the National Education Association, reports. However, you are about four times too high in your estimate of present federal) contributions to education.' NEA, long an advocate of greatly increased educational' aid from the federal: government with its broad tax base and other advantages, believes you are right on target, though, in wanting the government to increase its share even more. Dr. Wise noted that a recent survey conducted from NEA indicates gross public misunderstanding Of the federal role in support of public education. The median (or middle) estimate of contributions to the school dollar from the national level was 30 percent, the nationwide sampling showed. Dr. Wise charged the Nixon Administration with dishonesty In its use of federal statistics to support its contribution to elementary and secondary education. For example, she said the. President in his second state of union message to Congress (Sept. 10) deceives the public when he implies that total federal outlays for elementary and secondary education would be $13.8 billion in the 1973-74 school year. - "In reality, the President's request for elementary and' secondary schools the current school year is $3.8 billion, some $10 billion less than the figure the President would have the public believe," declared Dr. Wise. Higher education funds requested total $1.8 billion. "Perhaps the flow of polished rhetoric from the Nixon Administration concerning its deep interest in education has misled the public into thinking the federal government really is putting its money where its mouth is," Dr. Wise said. Further, she added, the cruelty of this deception is highlighted by the Administration's threat to veto a bill providing funds for i elementary, secondary and higher education. The President's request for education is some $900 million ess than is provided in the House passed Labor HEW appropriations bill before Congress. . Mrs. Wise pointed out that a -veto by the President would further reduce the federal .'effort for elementary and secondary schools. Actually, the federal share r 1972-73 is estimated bv A Research Services at only 8 percent, she pointed out, d the percentage has never risen above 8.8 (in 1967-68). About 41 percent of school funds now come from state sources and more than 51 percent, from local sources, both of which are financially hard-pressed. Almost one in-five men and women (19 percent) in the lurvey, conducted for NEA by Opinion Research Corp., thought the federal contribution is currently 50 percent or more, compared to the actual 7.8 percent NEA staunchly believes, the association president emphasized, that the federal share of the costs of public elementary and secondary education must be at least one-third with no decline in local and state support. This goal, she added, is one of the top priorities of the 1.4 million member organization today. "I am cheered that the. public, as indicated by the survey, is with us or even ahead of us," the Pennsylvania classroom teacher said. She jointed out that, while 30 percent was the middle ground of estimates concerning present federal contribution to education, those surveyed thought that 50 percent- more than eight times the present actual figure-- should be the government's fair share. Returning to the NEA survey, conducted in May, Dr. Wise noted that the following were among important points revealed: ln the South, the federal government, is believed to contribute a high 39 percent of the school funds; the lowest estimate, in the Northeast, is 25 percent- more than three times the actual percentage contributed nationwide.

Maya, and last year's recipient, singer Aretha Franklin. B. Johnson administration "from benign concern to malignant neglect." He said that the Martin Luther King dream has come alive, because blacks have become aware of their ability for economic power to become a reality. Back people are more agressive now. He told the capacity audience that a "coalition of the comfortable, callous and smug," reelected Richard Nixon in 1972, ami his administration has since displayed "arrogapt contempt for people and their problems." He suggested that gathering to work for creation of a "national political coalition of need," as a remedy for problems, including the Watergate affair. Bond is a founder and former national chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordination Committee (SNCC), which was organized in Raleigh. He challenged the students to put their "heritage back into action," in resurrecting the visions of Reconstruction Era black legislators. ' He concluded his one half hour address by quoting Frederick Douglass, Black Civil War era anti-slavery advocate: "Men who would be free must strike the first blow. . .The man, who is outraged must make the first outcry." At the dose of Bond's speech. Clarence Ughtner, mayor pro tem and mayoral candidate of Raleigh, presented the legislator with a key to the city, referring to Bond aa one of the brightest young man in this country. Currently the 33 year old Bond is chairman of Southern Elections Fund Inc., a group that financially assists Southern Blacks seeking public office. He also serves on the national Democratic Party's committee, studying the party's method of selecting the vice presidential candidate. At the 1968 Democratic National Convention, Bond was nominated for the vice presidency, but withdrew his name, because he was under Sterilization Occurs Despite Existing Ban WASHINGTON - (NBNS) Despite new and already existing bans against forced sterilization of minors and mental incompetents, persons receiving medical care under Federally-sponsored programs will still be subject to such actions unless better policing methods are found, according to Health, Education and Welfare officials.
