SOME SC HOOL NOTES.
By Supt. L. T. Royall.
L; ,-t week, it wa.? our privilege to at
tend the State Meeting of County
Superintendents and Teachers' Assem
bly, at Charlotte. It seems that every
County Superintendent was present,
except a very few who were providen
tially hindered. The State Superin
tendent presided at the Department
of County Superintendents. The Coun
ties were not only represented by the
Superintendents, but also by a good
many of the County Boards of Educa
tion. In a joint meeting, some very
important subjects were discussed.
Some of these were: Medical Inspec
tion of School Children, Consolidation
and Transportation, Adult Illiteracy,
Certification of Teaehers and Teacher's
I)r. Faison, of Charlotte, made a
splendid talk, in which he emphasized
medical inspection of school children,
showing why this should be done as
early as possible. Johnston County's
time for this will come a little later,
since this is to be carried out through
the whole State.
Some of our Counties are making
rapid progress in the consolidation and
transportation of pupils, as shown by
the reports of the different Superinten
There was a cry for teachers.
Nearly every County is short in this
line. It was emphasized that some
thing must be done, in order to pay the
teachers better shlaries. Some of the
Superintendents seem to think, that
unless this is done, next year it will be
a great deal harder to secure teachers
than it has been this year.
An Organization of County School
Hoards waS perfected, with Col. A. II.
Hoyden, of Salisbury, as Chairman.
The Assembly was so large, that it
was necessary to have a number of de
partments, namely, the Association of
County Superintendents, of High
Schools, of City Superintendents, of
Primary Teachers, of Grammar Grade
Teachers, of Music Teachers and of
Agricultural and Home Economic
Charlotte received all the teachers
gladly and gave them a royal welcome,
and providing for them in the way
that Charlotte does things. This was
greatly appreciated by all those pres
Just a few words in regard to State
High Schools; a number of County
Superintendents, it seems, have been
representing some of these schools as
local schools. The fact was empha
sized that these must be considered in
no way, except as County wide schools.
We have three in this County, namely,
Benson, Kenly and Wilson's Mills.
Free tuition is given to all pupils in
these schools who have studies above
the seventh grade, and to all teachers
who are taking any course whatever in
these schools. These are not local
schools and we are anxious for the
people in the County to find this out.
We were fortunate enough while at
the Assembly to secure a few very
good teachers, though we have not
enough yet to supply all the vacancies
in the County. We are doing all we
can to fill these. The State Board of
Examiners has recently made arrange
ments to give permits for one year, to
some teachers who have taught before,
and to some who have not taught, who
have the proper qualifications.
The last night of the Assembly was
Patriotic Night. At this meeting Gov.
Bickett and Dr. Graham, President of
the State University, addressed the
