Repair work, in progress during the past month at several of the school buildings, is coming along nicely, according to the superinten dent, who stated that the roof 'at the' Perquimans High School ' is almost complete, but lack of materials and competent labor has slowed the pro gress of the repair work as a whole. Mr. Johnson stated that rooms at the high school, in need of paint, -would not receive this attention until next Spring, and that repairs to the heating system at the building would be started as soon as materials " ar rive. He added it will be impossible to obtain a new furnace for the high school before next January.

When we, as adults, anticipate a journey, we undergo a period of preparation, in keeping with the importance of that journey. We provide ourselves with certain necessities, if we are bent on busi ness, and with certain luxuries, if we are going for pleasure and recrea tion. But these journeys are of little importance, compared with that which lies ahead for the child who is entering school for the first time. It is highly essential, then, that those responsible for our children's physical, psychological and mental welfare see that they are prepared. This responsibility falls directly upon the shoulders of parents, to whom these little ones must look for pro tection. They have no means of car ing for themselves, but must look to those who brought them into the world, or have assumed the respon sibility for their well being. It has been estimated that about one-third of the children who enter school for the first time have correc tive nhvsical defects, which, if neg lected, may mean their educational, hence intellectual, undoing. these defects are both hidden and patent. Some are not even known, to exjgt being impairments of which neither the child nor its pareit3 may be aware without a physical examina tion by a competent medical doctor, or, in some instances, specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of cer tain types of physical impairment. Hence, it is hisrhlv important that, before sending your child to school, yes L 18 18 21 24 25 34 Officials of the Norfolk Southern Railroad have made known plans to continue passenger and express ser vice in this section in event the two passenger trains, now in service, are discontinued.

A oost-season series will be played by the Albemarle League baseball teams, starting next Sunday, it was announced by the league directors following a meeting held in Edenton Sunday night. Regular season play will end Saturday when the teams complete a schedule of rained-out irames. The Hertford Indians, bat tling hard to finish in second place, with a mathematical chance 01 finish ing first, played Elizabeth City on Wednesday and will close the season on Friday when they play Colerain at Colerain. The Indians snapped out of a slump last week-end by handing Elizabeth City and Camden defeats on Thursday and Saturday. Webb pitched a three-hit game against Elizabeth City, while the Indians earnered eieht hits off Borden. The local nine scored three runs in the eighth after the visitors had tallied once in the seventh. Hines started on the mound for Hertford at Camden on Saturday and pitched six innings. He was relieved hv Schadel in the seventh. The In dians won by a 2-0 count.
