The Martin County Teacher's
Association held ijs regular meet
ing Saturday January 19 in the
I Town Hall at Robersonvil'e. As
it most all the
memberybf the Aaaociatioti also a
good number of the people of Rob-
were present to
participate in and to enjoy the dif
ferent phases of the meeting.
The chairman called the meeting
to order, Prof. Peel offered praver
A varied and interesting program
1. A beautiful solo by Miss
2. Model class on number work

teresting and instructive. Prof.
Peel commented on it and advocat
ed the method.
3. A very enthusiastic recitation
by Herman Rawls.
This was followed by a speech
from Prof. Everett, subject,
"Morning Exercises." He em
phasized how important it was to
begin the day's work correctly,
and he plainly showed us our ef
forts were in vain withont heeding
such noble advice. Prof. Ray also
made some helpful remarks on
Next a beautiful duet by Miss
Pearlie Roberson and Miss Kvn
Holiday. Then an exquisite rec
itation by Miss Emma Roberson.
Miss Meta Liles read a very ins
tructive papei on Friday afternoon

proper training of voting children
to speak publicly would help them
to face the battle of life.
Next a beautiful solo by Miss
Prof. S. T. Liles was the next
speaker. His subject, "Compul
sory Education." He discussed
this from the standpoint that tin
masses of the children of North
Carolina would never-lie educated
unless this law became enforced.
As the people as a whole did not
do what they were able to do, but
that which they enjoyed best.
Next a lovely trio, Miss Marie,
Miss Pearlie and Master Lester
The last topic, "The Association
and it's Purpose," by Prof. Peel.
Hte (jpeech was so important thai
\ the members of the Association
asked for it to be printed in The
Enterprise. Prof. Kay offered
prayer and the meeting adjourned.
The Association and its Purposes.
Are the educational conditions
in the state and countv such that
there is a necessity for organiza
tion of the teachers. Can our
teachers do the best work possible
for them to do without l>eing or
ganized? Can we ever hoj>e to rea :li
the great mass of ]x>ople acting in
dependently of each other? Docs
not organization and unison of
actiou tend to remove opposing
factions? lastly: Do we teacher.'
need the training and inspiration
to be obtained in the Teacher's
Every child has a right to the
blessings of au education and every
state, community, and individual is
duty bound to help furnish him a
chance to obtain that right. Are
all the children getting those bles
sings? Then, if they are not,
upon the shoulders of us
teachers hangs the burden ot see
ing that they do get them in the
future. Have we exerted all of our
power an influence in behalf of the
children? Can we not, by concert
of action and better organization
reduce illiteracy to a very small
per cent, and vouchsafe to the up
rising generation those unalienable
rights and blessings? Rights and
blessings that are as inherent to the
child, as his right to live and to
breathe God's free air.
The burning question of duty
does or should come to us at this
point. Are we responsible for the
educational conditions that con
front us to day. If we are, and we
are to a large degree, we should
endeavor, through the Association
to devise wavsand means by which
these unfavorable conditions may
he removed. Are we not by the
acceptance of our vocation the
guardian of every interest of the
child? And should not the parents
of the children justly expect us to
do all In our power for their mor
j*l, intellectual, aud material prog
raw? If we shall unite our efforts
OB this great question of universal
education and shall keep the fires
burning brightly in our hearts
and lives, it will not belong before
all opposition will down, and we
shall see our fondest hop* b realized
in the lives of the coming genera
tion By the lack of concert of
action petty differences and factions
have ari'en that are sapping tin
very life blood out of this great
and common cauA. A cause we
espoused of our own free will and
accord, and are therefore responsi
ble for its maintenance at anv cost
Have we done our full dutv in thit
respect? I,et the conditions tha'
stare us in the face to-day answer
the question for us. Let us not
despair localise of opposition, but
let us gather strength for the con
flicts that are before us, and show
to the world that we are sincere in
otir work of (lettering the condi
tions for the uprising generation.
How shall we do it?;not by irreso
lution and inaction? but we must
do it by being aggressive, never
letting an opportunity slip us
When there is a great work to be
done, like moulding sentiment for
general education, and placing the
children upon the high plane'that
God destined them to be placed
upon. So that each one may have
it chance to improve his God-given
faculties to that extent, that Tie
may make of himself the best and
most useful man possible for liitn
to be. There is likewise great
necessity for preparation on the
part of those who are to be leaders
in this forward movement, for
without thorough preparation, we
can uever hope to gain the respect
I and confidence of those around us,
who are to be woli for the cause.
The teachers of North Carolina
surely have tile noblest and grand
est work to perforin of anv class
of its citizens, and therefore, of
necessity they must 1* the best
prepared of all the |>eople to do
that work. Have we taken ad
vantage of every opportunity for
preparation aud development, as
men of other callings do that they
may become masters in their lines,
and thereby be able to rope with
'all other factious and draw public
sentiment to them.
What physician banker, or law
yer is it, that does not attend the
meetings of his association that he
may come in touch with new ideas
and new'ways of doing things, and
thereby better prepare himself for
ihe duties that are before him?
Now. if it is necesssry for men of
other vocations to meet and take
counsel of each other for the pro
motion of their business and the
betterment of the people, how
much more necessary is it for us
teachers to meet and advise with
each other, that we may better prt
pare ourselves to do the work that
is before us. What teacher is it
who can afford to to absent himself
from these meetings, when his
charge is actually hungering and
thirsting for the knowledge and
inspiration to be obtained in tliem.
Now, if we are not getting help
and inspiration out of these meet
ings, the cause should be re mod
eled. Surely the l>est equipped
and most proficient ones, can not
say that it is not their duty to help
make these meetings a success and
a blessing to the people, for the
strong must always help to l>ear
the burdens of the weak. And
what teacher is it that is not
willing aud anxious to help his
less fortunate brother? On the other
hand can it be possible that some
of us are not getting what we
should out of these meetings be
cause of lack of interest in them?
If so the way to make a thing in
teresting and profitable is to take
right hold of it, and help to put
life and progress into it. No teacher
humble he may lie, should
refrain from taking a part in the
question and discussions, for it
may l»e that the very thing that is
of interest to liiiu might also help
others to better perform their duties j
Again. Wt must make these meet- !
ing interesting and profitable, for 1
to sfftfte Of us, they are almost our
only means of growth and develop
The purpose of the associatiou
must be to better prepare the in
dividual members for the great and
important work that they are to do
in their schools and communities.
Again every teacher is morally
and legally lioud to attend these
meetings, and so we can not afford
to absent ourselves from them. If
