Dr. W. F. Savage an experienced
dentist employed by the State Board
of Health will begin work In the coun
ty Feb. 25 for the White scnool child
ren. Ages from 6 to 12 inclusive.
Dr. Savage will be In the county for
six weeks. His Itinerary has been
made by Supt. E. L. Best.
This work Is done by the Bureau of
Medical Inspection of schools, under
the auspices of the N. C. State Board
of Health, and Is entirely free to all
children under the above prescribed
p.ges. No cash whatsoever attached
to any part of^the work as all expen
ses will be paid out of State funds.
This work is very important, not only
from a physical standpoint but from
an educational one as well. Thous
ands of children today are grade re
peaters absolutely making no pro
gress In school, out of which numbers
ore physical wrecks caused by defects.
And the Idea of the Bureau of Medical
Inspection of Schofcls is to remove as
many of the defects as possible and
educate the people to the Importance
of caring for chlldrens teeth.
The true condition of chlld
rens teeth Is alarming, and the differ
ent Health Board, local and state so
cieties medical and dental have en
dorsed the work, and are co-operating
in every way to relieve the I eglected
Seventy counties In the State Lave
received the treatment and 90 per cent
of the children examined are found to
he In need of some dental attention.
Every parent within the county Bhould
appreciate this opportunity, and take
advantage of the clinics. It Is the
?vim of the State Board of Health to
send out none but the best dentists
that can be procured and all that fall
t/> take advantage of It not only will
lose a great deal as It Is entirely free
to all, but will be neglecting the child.
I hope every parent In the county will
take' advantage of this opportunity.

A few days ago a certain county sup

made this statement: "I have been

LOUISBURG, NORt3 CAROUNA
THE SCHOOL IN GARDNER TOWN
In the first place, Wilson County se
cured a superintendent who possesses
marked ability. He is Mipperintcnd
ent of both the city and tne county
schools. Therefore, there is no fric
tion between the city and county au- i
tborities. After deVeiopipn? the city
schools to a high degree of efficiency, j
he turned his attention seriously to
the county. (I should have stated
that for a number of years he was su
perintendent only of the city schools.
But a few years ago the county board I
elected him also as superintendent of I
the (Jounty schools.)
' After turning his attention to the
county schools he made a county-wide
plan In 1917 toward which he has been
consistently working. However, he
began his reform first in the moat
backward township educationally In
the county. He tackled the hardest
Jcb first. This was in Oardners town
ship, far removed from the railroad
centers, and in which there were a
number of one-room schools Buch as I
described In the opening paragraph.
All of the one-room schools have been
abolished, and Instead one central bull
ding for the entire township has been
erected. It contains 18 rooms and has
now 18 teachers. Pour hundred and
fifty pupils are enrolled, and 13
trucks are used to transport the child
ren to this school. The building has
?team heat, electric lights, running
water, play-rooms In the basement,
domes tin science and equipment tor
the teaching of other sciences. It is
provided with both an organ for the
primary children and aplano for the
upper grade children. It has a gar
age near by, and when I drove up to
the building I saw a mechanic, em
ployed by the school, examining the
trucks and making whatever needed
repairs he discovered,
I saw the 460 children march out of
the school, and standing at attention,
they went through the physical exer
cises provided by the institution. I
was Informed that it has a Parent
Teaoher Association that meets regu
larly to advise with the teachers about
