What is the University doing to
train more and better teachers for
the public school system in the face
o( the swelling enrollments?
One answer was provided this
week by Dean Arnold Perry of the
University's School of Education.
The School of Education is being
strengthened. More students are go
ing into teaching. Dean Perry an
nounced today three new additions
to the faculty, aside from the ap
pointment of Dr. Ben Fountain of
Itocky Mount some weeks ago.
Dean Perry revealed that under
graduate enrollment in the School of
Education here has increased 40 per
cent since 1955. An additional ten
per cent increase is expected with
the enrollment here this week.
Also on the rise is the number of
part-time students doing graduate
work or taking post-baccalaureate
work to complete requirements for
teaching certificates in North Caro
lina and other states.
Part-time enrollment has jumped
27 per cent in four years, and an
other five per cent increase is pre
dicted for 1953-59.
Continued growth for several years
is expectel because of the strong
demands for teachers, Perry said.
"For the past decade the demand
for elementary ' school teachers has
been exceedingly high and the State
of North Carolina has reached each
new school year with a shortage of
more than a 1,000 fully qualified

More School Teachers
"During the next six years the
most acute shortage will apparently
be in the junior and senior high
schools as the children bom im
mediately following the close of
Worll War II are now of junior high
school age," he continued.. "Each
year for the next six years there
will be an increase in the demand
for teachers prepared for junior high
school work and the variols subject
departments in the North Carolina
Joining the UNC staff to help
meet .the teacher demand are four
new staff members: JUiss Annie Lee

"We need many more individu

number of different psychological
traits and characteristics.
The new program constitutes
part of a series of recent research
projects undertaken by the Psy

Among others are (1) the revision
of group tests in reading compre
hension from the fourth grade to
the superior adult level; (2) the
recording of test scores in prim
ary mental abilities, reading, arith
metics, and spelling of children
age six and later at age nine in or

(3) The study of the pattern of
growth and subsequent decline of
mental abilities with advancing
age; and (4) the analysis of 150
pairs of identical and fraternal
twins with a number ofpsy chologi-;
cal tests and physical measure
ments to make a "twin diagnosis.'"
Four other major studies are
currently underway at the lab. Two
are financed by governmental
agencies, one dealing with pre
ference for food combinations and
the other with acceptance of cer

by Army enlisted men.
The other two are concerned
with aphasia, the partial or total

RALEIGH i? The Advisory
Budget Commission was asked
Thursday to approve a new textile
research program and a two-year,
non-degree technical course in ag
riculture at North Carolina State
The proposed textile research pro
gram calls for $159,780 each year
of the 1959-61 biennium. The request
for the two-year agriculture course
is for $24,550 the first year of the
biennium and $49,833 the second.
Dr. Carey H. Bostian, State Ccl -
lege chancellor, told tlie commis
sion the new program is basic and
pioneering textile research "would
leap enormous benefits from the
About $500,00 a year is being
spent at State College on applied
textile research. Bostian pointed out
that approximately $2,800,00,000
worth of textile goods are manufac
tured in North Carolina each year.
The proposed new program would
be closely allied with the teaching
end graduate education programs
cf the State College School of Tex
tiles and with the present industry-supported
applied research pro
Bostian said the new two-year ag
ricultural course would be taught
in separate classes from the 4-year
students and by teachers especially
qualified for this type of instruction.
In addition to farming, graduates
could qualify for work in hatcheries,
food service, processing plants,
dairy plants, greenhouses, fertilizer
plants, farm retail stores, and other
farm related busisess.
RALEIGH W Chancellor Gor
don W. Blackwell of Woman's Col
lege said today $193,578 is needed
by the school during the next bien
nium to restore budget reductions
due to receipts deficiencies.
He told the Advisory Budget Com
mission $90356 is needed the first
year and the $103,222 the second
year "to correct for errors in re
ceipts estimates in the past."
Blackwell said that over the past
years "they have been projecting
receipts of about $30,000 more than
they could realize." The receipts,
he explained, are from student fees.
The college is affecting a saving
this year by not filling staff va
cancies, he said.
Burglar Takes Food

Chapel Hill Police today were

The Commission was asked to
approve salary increases of $4,749,

Consolidated University Presi
dent William C. Friday told the
commission, "We have made good
progress in our salary program but
more must be done if we are to
meet the problems before us."
Salary increases are "our first
priority throughout the university
in the "B" budget," Friday said.
The State Board of Higher Edu
cation has recommended salary
increases of $2,700,000 for the bien
nium. This figure, however, did not
include academic staff personnel
1 such as librarians, administrators
The president pointed out that
the university was among the ton
40 in the nation. He added that in
order for the university to stay on
a high level, the faculty salaries
must be increased.
Although President Friday
stressed the needed hike in facul
ty, salaries, he briefly discussed
research piograms, library servic
es and service functions (extension
department and adult education).
Friday strongly endorsed "the
principle of flexibility in the hand
ling" of instituiional budgets. We
can make a much more efficient
and wiser use of our time and of
the resources entrusted to us if
we have the flexibility to place
them where the need appears
Each of the three universities,
Carolina, Woman's College and N.
C. State College, spoke on the
needs of their individual college.
Shepard said the Advisory Bud
