AT STATE MEET
Late Meeting Dates Make
It Impossible for Many
Teachers To Attend
Comparatively few of the Martin
County teacfters are attending the
meeting of the State association in
Raleigh this it is understood.
Postponed to await the outcome of
proposed legislation, the meeting is
being held so late that many of the
teachers selected as delegates from
this county to the meeting were un
able to attend, it was stated.
Superintendent R- A. Pope left

Fisherman Catches 6 Shad
In One Dip With Dip Net
A fishing record is believed to have
been established on Roanoke River,
near Hamilton, last Wednesday night
when John Lynch of Hamilton, caught
six siiable shad in one dip with a her

whole, has been very unfavorable, but
not for the man who dipped up si*
stud at one time.
Fire Company Called Out
For First Time in Month
The local fire company was called
out for the first time in over a month
when an outbuilding, located just back
of Hie S. R. Biggs Drug company,
caught fire last Wednesday morning.
Sparks from a burning trash pile were

new fire under the floor. Sin lie poured

NOT SO GOOD
Fishermen Catch Over 100,-
000 with Dip Nets In
Dead Water Creek
Up until yesterday fair catches were
reported by the Fleming Fishery at
Jamesville during the week, hut low
water and a strong wind yesterday
limited the catches. Wednesday, the
catches varied from 1,500 to .1,000, Mr.
O. W. Hamilton stated late yesterday.
Fishing with dip nets proved very
profitable during the early part of the
week, when a goodly number of fish
ermen, 60 or mure, went to Low Dead

SALES ON CURB
Home Agent Predicts A
Continued Growth For
Curb Market Here
By Miss LORA E SLEEPER
(County Home Agent)
It may be of interest to the, people
of the immediate community tliat the
curb market has b >uglu back to the
farm families in the county in the
short time it has been running $127.13.
The market should continue to grow
and will, if earli patron will help ad
vertise it, each seller will bring the
very best to the market, and it is sold
at a reasonable price. A few sugges
tions have been given to the sellers
and also to Miss Sleeper. The market
closed top early, some ladies thought.
We shall be glad to huld the market
open until 11 a. m. if there are enough
patrons to guarantee this.
Many of the sellers leave homes
with no one to help in the preparation
of dinner, many have large families,
some with small children, and it is al
most necessary that we help these
folks to get back home in time to pre
pare dinner. We are very glad to ac
commodate patrons in any way. The
question was asked by one buyer at
the market if they were allowed to or
der produce from the sellers a week
in advance, and I am sure the sellers
and the home agent will be glad for
any one caring to, to order a week in
advance. We are cutting our prices
| to the desires of our patrons this week.
I Many of tl»e town people as yet
have not visited the market. We are
hoping to see you this week. If at
any time produce is unsatisfactory,
, please return it and your money will
:be gladly returned to you. If cakes
I are unsatisfactory, please report this
•to Miss Sleeper, giving the seller's
'• name, so that help may be given the
. sellers on the market.

GIVES FACTS ON
Better Standards Should Be
Constant Aim, Says
By R. I*LEAKE
At this time I should like to express
through your paper the ideas of Mr.
Cubberiey in "Public School Admin
istration" to the folks who are now
thinking al>out teachers and taxes.
The corps of teachers with which
a school system starts each year ought
taken as a whole, to be an improve
ment over the crops of the preceding
year, but this desirable condition can
not be unless the new teachers enter
ing the force rank higher in training,
teaching skill, and personal culture
than the average of the teachers prev
iously in service. Whatever plan is
devised for selecting teachers, it is im
portant that the incoming teachers
should contribute something to the
leavening of the whole corps—that is,
the constant introduction of such a
stream of new teachers brings new
ideas, new 'enthusiasm, anil new stan
dards of educational preparation to
For present-day city and town school
work, graduation from a. good high
school, with a good two-year normal
school -course in addition, is not too
high a standard to insist upon front
elementary-school teachers, and at
least one year of teaching experience
elsewhere would add still further to
the teacher's equipment for satisfac
tory service. Also graduation from 'a
good college or university, with spec
ial preparation in sortie line or lines
of secondary-school instruction and
some professional study in addition,
is not too much to demand of teach
ers for the high school.
The welfare of the schools demands
periodical meetings wtih teachers, and
such are everywhere recognized as an
essential element in preserving, the
unity of a system of schools. These
meetings are needed for considering
together the educational policy of the
school system, for the discussion of
certain phases of school work and the
progress of instruction, somewhat for
| administrative and supervisory pur
poses, and for inspirational purposes.
These different purposes call for school
building meetings, meetings of prin
cipals and supervisors, grade meet
ing, meetings of the teachers of spec
ial types of-schools, and general meet
ings 6f all the teachers. A superin
tendent fcould well afford to devote
\ two afternoons a week and one Satur
day morning a month to such pur
| The present low compensation for
the work of teaching, not only in
'cities but in town and rural schools
'as well, is largely a result of the low
standards for entering the work and
| the job-conception of teaching which
have so long prevailed-' Ihe great
mass of the public has no real concep
tion as to what proper training for
and adaptability to the work of teach
ing mean, and does not take particu
larly kindly to proposals to raise the
requirements for admission to the
work. The public generally that
higher standards may mean
taxes for schools, and desires to keep
teaching on as nearly a competitive
basis as is possible. Teachers also
often feel so Sympathetic for some poor
ifriend who wants to teach and who

Growers Patronizing Huck

Less for Their Poultry
A marked decrease in poultry load

here Wednesday, the car receiving a
few pounds under two and one-half
tons at the two stops. Approximately
j SI,OOO were paid to the sellers. Fair
!loadings were reported at Roberson
It is not known at this time whether
or not a fifth car will be operated in
the county next month, County Agent
Brandon sating that a definite an
nouncement would be made in the
course of a week or two.
Taking advantage of the coopera
tive car advertising, hucksters again
located near the car here Wednesday,
and the poultcy-raiscrs apparently re
ceived the Worst end of the bargain.
Advertising the price for colored hens
at 17 cents a pound, the cooperative
car paid 18 cents, while the hucksters
operated on the 17-cent lia*is. Com
menting on the practice during the day
a prominent farmer of Griffins town
ship stated that the farmers were cut
ting their own throats in patroniiing
the hucksters, that if it wasn't for the
cooperative shipments chickens would
not sell for anything hardly.
As far as it could be-4€arned, local
poultry prices have been under those

approximately 100 prominent property

that they, wou'd not Ist any of their

reports reaching here 1 , the a lion was
advanced not for contrary purposes,
but rather to advance the cause of
land owners and to urge a revaluation
(if all properties.
Learning that the 'county tmmniis
■-toners have been empowered to luakii
a horizontal reduction, or increase,
and then hear any appeals from the
new rate, those attending the meet
ing agreed to go ahead ,with the list

rounding the certain piece of property,
