"deadlines in Thursday’s issue of The Jour

tbat on many occasions we may have the

There is no doubt a strong possibility
that the old covered bridge across Reddies
Biver will be eliminated and a modern

highway system, one of the first improve-

gerous and antiquated bridges.
Whether the Watauga and Yadkin River
railway may again be operated is partly
dependent, we feel sure, upon business
conditions. If there is any possibility that
the lumber business will rise to its old
heights—and we feel sure there is—we

Twenty-three days befort, C. C.
Wright, known to^thousands fs just plain
“Charley,” had retired to the quiet and
peace of his country home with the ’ex*
pressed purpose of writing a series of
memoirs covering the history of education
in Wilkes coon1y> especially during the,
thirty-four years he served as county
superintendent of schools. Death inter
rupted this work and posterity lost a valu
able contribution to the written history of
But the contribution Chariey Wright
made to the cause of education and pos
terity is not lost, can never be, lost. He
wrote history in a bigger and better way
than he could ever have done in his re
Any summary of his ac'hievements must
necessarily deal with the past thirty-four
years during which he served Wilkes
county with a zeal and devotion which will
inspire the boys and girls trained under
his leadership throughout the years ahead.
But those early years of his life were not
wasted. He was training himself and ac
quiring knowledge that would enable him
to serve his fellowman with all the powers
with Which he was endowed.
Following in the footsteps of the great
educational governor, Charles Brantley
Aycock, whose political and educational
faith he held, C. C. Wright preached the
doctrine of equal opportunity through
education for every boy and girl in the
“State of Wilkes.” He preached it at a
time when the three and four months
school was in vogue, when education was
not the popular doctrine it is today. And
he lived until the state of North Carolina
declared that the child bom in the moun
tains of his beloved Wilkes should have
that to which he is entitled—an eight-
months school just the same as the urban
born child. i i ^ ^
The vanishing of the log schoolhousq
with its one teacher and twenty pupils
brought no touch of sadness to this vet
eran educator who was big enough and
broad enough to more than keep pace
with the advances and progress of educa
tion. While cherishing the old, he was
first to greet the new and embrace those
things which had possibilities of making
better men and women.
First of all we think of him as an edu
cator. He was. But that was not all. He
gave to the church the strongest leader
ship he had to offer. What those associ
ated with him thought of that leadership
was revealed by his service of 31years as
superintendent of his home church Sum
In the different fields where he was
called upon to play a part, C. C. Wright

QUESTION AND ANSWER

Answer: It Is a good practice
to feed an abundance of scratch
feed especially during the de
veloping period. This will build a
good frame and develop vitality
for the egg laying period. An
excess of animal protein fed dur
ing the developing period will
bring the birds into lay before
they are fully matured and an
abundant feeding of scratch will
retard this early production and
aid in building a large, healthy
body for maximum egg produc
