The circles of the church
life of this eastern town began
to realize Wednesday, when the
funeral of Rev. Joseph Clinton
Sawyer, 48, was held at St.
Augustus AME Zion Church1, at
11:00 a.m., that his sudden
death on Saturday night, Sept.
12, had cast a gloom over the
community that would not
soon move away.
The news of his death
spread quickly, but it was not
recognized as such a blow until
Bishops W. A. Stewart and A.
G. Dunston, followed by other
clergymen, led the procession
into the church, to pay last
respects to the fallen pastor,
former farm agent, NAACP
leader, civic personality and
champion of human rights.
Once the solemn procession
began its slow movement into
the church, he had pastored for
11 years, and the strains of the
funeral dirge echoed back, the
crowd slowly took it seat to
hear the last sad rites. Even
though the two prelates, with
whom he had worked, since
resigning from the position of
farm agent in Chowan County,
were. to say the last words, the
mute evidence of how he had
wrought, spoke in glowing
terms. ' ' :
The farmers he had aided in
bringing forth better yield, and
towns people, he had worked
so hard for, to bring to a fuller
life of human rights and
dignity, the city planners and
officials, with whom he had
worked to make Kinston a
better place to live, with
bowed heads, all realized that a
great servant had gone.
Rev. Sawyer was born in
Edenton and after finishing the
prescribed courses of Edenton
High School, he attended A &
T College, where he received a
degree in agricultural science.
He went back to his native
county and married the former
Etta Turner in 1943. He had
shown a unique interest in
church work and decided to
enter the ministry. He had
built a background for same, as
a child, at Caanan Temple
AME Zion Church. He moved
quickly up and on. He pastored
in JamesvOle and Williamston,
taking over the pastorate of St.
Augustus, in 1961.
He soon found that the
congregation needed a hew
edifice and started plans to
build one. The building stands
as a credit to his administeria!
ability and the leadership he
gave his parishneers. He served
on the Board of Education, the
Recreation Committee and as a
chaplain at Lenoir County
Hospital. He worked diligently
on voter registration and by so
doing gave the Black
community much stature in
the affairs in Kinston. When it
was apparent that the local
branch of the NAACP was
losing its viability, he led the
reorganization to a more viable

Federal Aid to Educ. is Pittance
Compared fto Public Impression
Come, now, do you really
believe Uncle Sam is putting up
30 cents of every dollar to
operate the public school
systems in your community
and across the nation? '
And do you think it should
chip in even more?
If so, you are probably with
the majority of the public on
both counts, Dr. Helen D.
Wise, president of the National
Education Association, reports.
However, you are about
four times too high in your
estimate of present federal)
contributions to education.'
NEA, long an advocate of
greatly increased educational'
aid from the federal:
government with its broad tax
base and other advantages,
believes you are right on target,
though, in wanting the
government to increase its
share even more.
Dr. Wise noted that a recent
survey conducted from NEA
indicates gross public
misunderstanding Of the
federal role in support of
public education. The median
(or middle) estimate of
contributions to the school
dollar from the national level
was 30 percent, the nationwide
sampling showed.
Dr. Wise charged the Nixon
Administration with
dishonesty In its use of federal
statistics to support its
contribution to elementary and
secondary education.
For example, she said the.
President in his second state of
union message to Congress
(Sept. 10) deceives the public
when he implies that total
federal outlays for elementary
and secondary education
would be $13.8 billion in the
1973-74 school year. -
"In reality, the President's
request for elementary and'
secondary schools the current
school year is $3.8 billion,
some $10 billion less than the
figure the President would have
the public believe," declared
Dr. Wise. Higher education
funds requested total $1.8
"Perhaps the flow of
polished rhetoric from the
Nixon Administration
concerning its deep interest in
education has misled the public
into thinking the federal
government really is putting its
money where its mouth is,"
Dr. Wise said.
Further, she added, the
cruelty of this deception is
highlighted by the
Administration's threat to veto
a bill providing funds for
i elementary, secondary and
higher education. The
President's request for
education is some $900 million
ess than is provided in the
House passed Labor HEW
appropriations bill before
. Mrs. Wise pointed out that a
-veto by the President would
further reduce the federal
.'effort for elementary and
secondary schools.
Actually, the federal share
r 1972-73 is estimated bv
A Research Services at only
8 percent, she pointed out,
d the percentage has never
risen above 8.8 (in 1967-68).
About 41 percent of school
funds now come from state
sources and more than 51
percent, from local sources,
both of which are financially
Almost one in-five men and
women (19 percent) in the
lurvey, conducted for NEA by
Opinion Research Corp.,
thought the federal
contribution is currently 50
percent or more, compared to
the actual 7.8 percent
NEA staunchly believes, the
association president
emphasized, that the federal
share of the costs of public
elementary and secondary
education must be at least
one-third with no decline in
local and state support. This
goal, she added, is one of the
top priorities of the 1.4
million member organization
"I am cheered that the.
public, as indicated by the
survey, is with us or even
ahead of us," the Pennsylvania
classroom teacher said. She
jointed out that, while 30
percent was the middle ground
of estimates concerning present
federal contribution to
education, those surveyed
thought that 50 percent- more
than eight times the present
actual figure-- should be the
government's fair share.
Returning to the NEA
survey, conducted in May, Dr.
Wise noted that the following
were among important points
ln the South, the federal
government, is believed to
contribute a high 39 percent of
the school funds; the lowest
estimate, in the Northeast, is
25 percent- more than three
times the actual percentage
contributed nationwide.
