Elizabeth City, Feb. 8 — The
seventh and last in a series of
conferences for high school prin
cipals of Eastern IMbrth Carolina
was held Saturday, February 2,
1935 at State Normal School.
Among prominent North Carolina
educators present were: Superin
tendent M. P. Jennings, Superin
tendent E. E. Bundy, Superinten
dent R. S. Procter, Dr. Harry W.
Crane, Miss D. S. Hunt, Mr.George
Coggin, Mr. S. B. Simmons, Rev.
W. A. Cooper, Mr. A. Elder, Mr.
N. C. Newbold, Mr. G. H. Fergu
son, Dr. J. Henry Highsmith and
Mr. A. B. Combs. This was the
only one of the seven that a stu
dent body has been fortunate
enough to attend.
After President J. H. Bias wel
comed the visitors he turned the
meeting over to Mr. H. L. Trigg,
State Supervisor of the high
schools of North Carolina, who
Mr. E. E. Bundy, superintcnr'^^^
of the schools of Elizabeth City
spoke very interestingly on the
‘‘Three Hundredth /.nnivcrsary cf
the American High School.”
County Superintendent, M. P.
Jennings stressed the “How to
Live” program for our high school
boys and girls.
Mr. R. S. Procter, superinten
dent of Craven County Schools
gave some very helpful sugges
tions on vocational guidance. He
stated that if the teachers of the
elementary school would give the
children the proper guidance the
teachers themselves should secure
information as to the pupils’ in
terests, aptitudes and abilities.
Again, he emphasized the fact
that teachers have a great task of
adjusting the school work to the
needs of the children. They should
determine by individual study what
should be the rate of the progress
of each child. On the basis of
such careful study of each pupil,
the teacher should classify pupils
to the best advantage and provide
a program of study and activities
to m?et the needs of each child.
