BIRTHDAY GREETINGS Tuesday marked the passing of an other mile-stone in the life of Miss Annie Perkins, whose Christian character and outstanding work in the educational system have influen ced two generations in Farmville and will be felt for yean to come. It was typical of the fine lady that she should make her birthday a day of service, as her life has been. In the morning, die taught Bible school; in the afternoon she attended a church meeting and that evening she was one of the hostesses at a circle meeting. The author of the following lines is unknown but the motto seems to be the one by which Miss Annie Perkins has patterned her life: "Count that day lost whose low de scending sun, Views from thy hand no worthy action done." LETTER Raleigh, N. C. May 23, 1947 To the Editor: The influence of the press on pub lic opinion was again clearly demon strated during the past year. Our public schools were opened last Sep tember by employing hundreds of teachers who were not certified. Many vacancies were not filled then and are not filled today. The public, how ever, at that time was not aware of this crisis in education. You and your colleagues set to work. You gave abundant* space t<j true stories concerning the true situ ation. With editorial pen in hand and coats removed, you joined, the cru sade and sougft to awaken an apathetic public. That you met with some success is evidenced by the legislative action of our recent General Assembly. Without your ag gressive support the teachers would have received no more than a 20 per cent increase, if, indeed that much. This letter, therefore, is to thank you for every story you carried and every word you wrote. We are especially graceful for your assistance while the 1947 Legis lature was in session as well as for your continued support now that Federal Aid hearings are being held in Washington. Teachers are deep ly indebted to you and to your news paper. You know, of coarse, that the crisis has not ended. We shall be made aware of its continuance when our schools opsn in September.
