As the 1958 Easter Seal cam

in«lv preater numbers with the
funds that will be raised during

The county-by-county alloca

document sent to each member of
the State’s 100 County Boards of
Commissioners. This document
included explanations of the al
locations, methods of preparing
county secondary road plans and
procedures for the adoption of
such plans each fiscal year.
The manual also contains a
synopsis of the Legislative Act of
the 1957 General Assembly which
adopted secondary road proced

and excerpts from the;; Statutes
governing such highway work.

the relative need of each county

prehensive State-wide survey of
such facilities revealed that a to
tal sum of $123,956,000 \»auld be
required to pave the 9,330 miles
of such secondary roads rated for
paving. $8,000,000 represents 6.45
per cent of the total amount
needed over the State for such
paving. Allocation of this $8,000,-
000 for each county represents
6.54 per cent of the total sum
which would be required to pave
the rated rural secondary roads
of that county. t
The remaining $8,000,000 was
allocated to each county on the
basis of the number of miles of
unpaved rural secondary roads in
1 the State which did not carry 50
vehicles per day and were not
rated for paving. 24,137 miles of
1 these unpaved roads were listed
in the secondary road survey.

was opened with a devotional by
Chaplain Matthew A. Curry. The
salute to the flag was under the
direction of three Edenton Girl j
Scouts, after which Mrs. John
• Ross presented a brief history of,
the national PTA association as
j well as the Edenton organization.
Next on the program was the
Rev. George B. Holmes who sub
mitted a very interesting church
school report. Mr. Holmes pre- |
sc nted statistics showing that one
out of nine school . children in j
Edenton are not attending any |
church school, which is above j
the national average. He said that;
of 999 questionnaires sent out. it
v/as shown that 322 ale affiliated |
with some church schqpl, 104 are
affiliated.- but. do not attend reg-I
ularly and eight were not affiliat- j
ed with anv church. Sixtv-fivej
of the questionnaires were not re-,
turnc d.
Mr. Conggr then turned the!
meeting over to Mrs. Whitten,;
who was in charge of the panel
Among the questions presented,
were: i
What amount of fire insurance |
is carried on the Elementary.
School building and is it above
the ’minimum? The answer to J
thir question was $345,000.
Will you permit school trustee j
| meetings to be open to the pub- J
lie? This answer was in the af- '
firmative and that anyone is wel- j
come to attend.
What js the latest information;
about the fire condition at the!
Elementary School? It was stat-1
j ed that the state fire marshal and
■ a member of the State School i
j Planning Board had recently
I made an • inspection and stated
j that the school does not meet
present standards, but did when
the school was built. The report
also stated that the building is
j not jn such condition as to war
j rant condemnation proceedings.
A number of improvements were
-| recommended such as removing
the first row of seats in the au
ditorium allowing more room to
the doors leading to the outside,
covering the ceiling with fire re
sistant material, replacing wood
en steps with steel or concrete
when repairing is necessary and
that inaccessible areas be protect
ed with a fire detector system,
•stir. Holmes pointed-ti-ut that most
of these recommendations have
been made or are being planned.
He did point out that no oil has
been used on floors since 1936.
How much money is budgeted
for schools in Edenton? It was
stated that the state appropria
tion is and locally
Are fire drills being held in the
school, to meet State require
ments? The answet was yes, and
that inspections are required and
made twice monthly.
Why do you not have a quali
fied lunch room supervisor? The
answer was that lunch rooms are
now under capable supervision.
* Hot(- dre -School -trustees elect
ed? The answer: Elected at a
joint meeting of the school trus
■ tees and Town Council.
; How does it happen that most
' members do not have children in
I school? It was stated that all
I members of the board have had
| children in school at one time or
I another. The trite remark was
1 also made that most of the teach
ers have no children in school and
further that the trustees are too
What is the bonded indebted
ness of Chowan County? The an
swer was $425,000.
| Why is so little equipment fur
nished at the Elementary School?
i The reason was because of limit
| ed space and that children pre
j fei room for other sorts of
; games. The school was placed at
the wrong place to begin with.
| Why was Miss Mayo not given
j permission to teach French to
j fifth grade pupils? Piincipal Er
| nest Swain stated he would have
j an answer to this question at the
I next meeting.
How much money does Eden
, ton receive due to enrollment of
! children of military personnel? j
In five years the following j
amounts: $2,550.30, $2,805.02,
, $5,005.00, $13,162.00, $13,005.00, or i
j a total of $36,527.32. This money j
j was used to employ two teachers j

chase two driver education cars 1

j general budget.
What sort of program is plan
! ned for gifted children? The
j State School Board has not yet
I worked out a program,
j A number of other questions
; were asked and all in all the pro
! gram was very enlightening and
lno doubt answered some ques
-1 tions which lately have been
I more or less criticism of the
school trustees.

that, as usual, the kindergarten
won the attendance prize, hut
that Mrs. Lloyd Bunch’s fifth
grade was second.
