Raleigh, July 24.—^The salary
committee of the state school
commission has voted a full 20
per cent salary raise to every
jubllc school teacher in North
Carolina for the first seven
mcl|tths of the 1936-36 school
year. The raise will he In addi
tion to earned Increments tor in-
cietlhed training anjl experiences.
According to the plan outlined
by the committee the pay for the
eight months of the school year
will depend on the condition of
the emergency funds and any
other possible source of' Income
for the state school commission
uext spring. Teachers’ contracts
will be drawn so that the salary
under the contracts will run for
only seven months.
Although the action was by
the committee and not the full
school commission, the action a-
mounted to virtual adoption of
the plan which Representative
Ralph McDonald, of Forsyth,
presented to Governor Ehrlng-
haus last week.
The fun commission will vote
on the plan when It meets to
morrow, but It is expected thai
there will be a tight over the
proposal In the session.
State Treasurer Charles M.
Johnson, a member of the com
mission, said tonight. “I am
gainst the plan. I think we
should pay the teachers all we
can and tell them what it will
be. It wouM be better to give
each teacher a 20 per cent raise
and let the Incremants jB,or re
duce the size of tBe IficrenieSl
to fit the appropriation. There
is only $500,000 in the fund to
begin with. Half of that is pledg
ed for the 'Western North Caro
lina Tuberculosis Hospital, leav
ing only $250,000 in all.” !
•rhe school commission estl-'
mates that it would take at least j
$280,000 more than the school'
appropriation to pay the higher
salaries plus Increments for the J
rull school year.
