quoted figures to show the result of
the two ideas—transportation nnd
consolidation—with'n the past few
One result of the development of
these two systems has been to reduce
the 3,000 one-teacher schools in the
state five years ago to 1500 at the
present time, he said. It has also
helped greatly in the increase in the
number of high schools.
In 1907. when under the supervis
ion of Dr. Joyner. Mr. Allen said, the
$50,000 high school aid fund was es
tablished, there was not a high school
in the State, outside the special char
ter districts. A year after that fund
was established, there were 138 such
schools, with an attendance of 4.000.
These high schools had to be estab
lished, however, lie said, in thickly
populated districts, and it was neces
sary for dormitories to be erected in
order to take care of the country chil
dren. This gave the “country people
a taste of high school,” said Mr. Al
len. and when consolidation and
transportation began, the high schools
began a more rnpid increase until
there were 40,(KK) rural boys and girls
in high schools in the state during the
school year 1924-1925.
The transportation of school chil
dren was first begun in 1912 by Ohio,
ludiuna and lowa, with horse-drawn
vehicles, operating on a basis of a
radius of three or four miles. Devel-I
opmehts of good roads and of motor
vehicles has increased that radius to
15 miles in this Htate. Last year, in
fact, Mr. Allen stated, one route in
Caswell county was 18 miles. This
was over a sand clay road, and the |
record made was cited by Mr. Allen .
as unusual—the truck never’ missed |
a day, tmd the children never arrived |
at school late during the entire school i
This radius is destined to lengthen,
Mr. Allen believes. For, after all. he
pointed out, the eost of transportation
of children is based primarily on the
cost of tiie trucks and pay of driv
ers, and the addition of a few miles
to the route has littie effect on the
cost per pupil.
"It is true that school consolida
tion and the transportation of school
children is having a tendency to de
stroy the communities, by destroying
one of tiie community centers —the
schools?” Mr. Allen asked.
His answer was emphatically in the
negative. “What it does,” he replied,
“is to broaden the communities, and
tints broaden the ideas of those in
the communities. Iu the same way,
the development of transportation fa
cilities is broadening communities
and increasing contasts all over the
“Not consolidation,” he said, in an
swer to another question, "hut the
general increase in educational facil
ities and the increased number of chil
dren receiving education is responsible
for the movement of young people to
“As the children learn about the
world, they have ail increasing desire
to get out and see something of that
world, hence they leave the country.”
But that is a phenomenon that Mr.
Alien is not worried about worried
about. The number of farmers who
remain in the country will largely be
governed, in the end. by supply and
•flflmaitlJ-4-fcre-food stuffs, he believes.
Iu the past, in fact, lie suggested, too
many people have been on the farms
for the good of the farmer himself.
-«* Lasting Love.
A score of years li«s not wiped |
away the love of one man for his
bride of a few days. young Swede
who twenty years ago was a ship
yard carpenter on the Pacific coast,:
wobed and won a beautiful Argentine'
girl. As he courted her the man
built a honeymoon ship which he
called the “Hdppiness.” It was a
fine ship and everything was in readi
ness for the trip which would take
the newly married couple to the bride's
home in South America.
On the day of the wedding the
lovers sailed. All went well until
the ship neared the equator; then
“doldrums” gripped the ship. Day
after day the heat of the sun sapped
the strength from all hands aboard.
The Swede’s bride fell under a stroke
and the unhappy groom was unable
to save her. He buried her at sea.
Today, observers at the San Fran

dressed man drive up in his limousine,
get out and pick his way carefully
