* With Honors thus far about evenly
divided, candidates in the Tribune-
Times prize campaign are preparing
‘ ysith feverish haste and intensity tr
make their final stand for victory in
the five days before 12 o'clock this
coming Saturday/ night—the close of
the second period schedule of votes.
Surging forward at the rate of sev
eral thousand votes a clip, all of the
leading candidates are passing through

Action Grows Faster.
More general and concerted action I
should take place during the next few!
days than at any other time since the;
contest began and with the race liar- i
rowing down each cf the favorites I
•are more determined than ever to be |
declared winners of first honors. I
Interest in the competition is run- ;
ning high and strong. And it lias not 1
been confined alone to this locality,
but has reached out until there are
hundreds, yes thousands of eager
watching friends who are waiting the
final outcome with intense interest.
False St cries.
It is no doubt natural, with such
intense interest being shown in the
great race that some would attempt
to discourage others by circulating
rumors more ingenious than accurate.
One hears tales thnt are so highly
embellished with frills, so utterly in
conceivable that their untrutiifulqess
is readily apparent. These exagger
ated stories hurt no one but those who
/ attempt to circulate them. The REAL
I eontfstams are those who aretoo
busy either to listen or to be bluffed
by these would-be bluffers.
So on the basis of pcrhonal honor'
the comi>etition is being waged xest
fully. shedding lustre on this inspiring
sight in the'civil pride manifesting it
self. This mighty factor is the bul
wark behind the various candidates;

In a Few Years Only Graduates Will I
Be Teachers in Our Public Schools, j
Raleigh, Oet. 2(l.—GP)—ln three j
more years there will be no teachers
in North Carolina's public schools who j
have educational qualifications of less
than grttdnation from a standard high
school, if the present rate of decrease I
in the number of these so-called non-1
standard teachers employed in the j
public schools continues during the
next three yea tv. at the same rate j

This is shown by figures compiled

The figures show a ylienominally
rapid decrease in the number of

in the city schools. ' it : is shown, is
more rapid 11tan in the rural com
munities, but there i« a big decrease
in both types of schools.
In 1919-20 there wefe 5.348 non
standard rural white teachers and
320 non-standard city white teachers.
In comparison, during the past school
year the number had decreased to 1.-
653 rural and 67 city non-standard
white teaeherms. The percentage of
decrease in figures by State School
