Refuse Role Of
by SCOTT SUMMERS -Raleigh,
N. C, August 31. The
state's school teachers have ; re
fused -- up to now -- to be used
as a political football In the bonus
pay row. . . , ,
When the State ended the last
fiscal year with $13,000,000 in the
cash -box, the teachers asked for
a pay raise auohtrlzed by the last
General Assembly "if there was a
surplus". Teachers claimed tha 13
million was" surplus, the governor
end Advisory Budget Commission
said K wasn't - that the money was
needed for this year's operations.
The teachers asked the Gover
nor to reconsider, and asked him
to submit the question to Attorney
General Harry McMullan for an
, Meantime, the question had
evolved into an administration vs
anti-administration fight The "an
tls" usually conservative as a
Scotsman with a mortgage hol
lered to pay the $6,000,000 now
and some urged to teachers to
tinct 'are dwindling steadily.
Almost 60 per cent of the exist
ing one-teacher schools have been
replaced since 1020 through sub
stantial school construction and
modernization programs reports-R.
H. Jacobs, director of the school
division of Minneapolis-Honeywell
Regulator Company. His report was
based on an analysis of a study by
the U. S. Office of Education.
Although educators regard this
as a significant index of state
wide advancement there are some
595 one-teacher schools remaining
in the state that continue to be an
important means of providing the
rudiments of education.
North Carolina educators, how
ever, apparently are keenly aware
of the physical advantages of lar
ger schools. In a recent survey, a
majority stated the "ideal element
ary school" should contain 14 class
rooms, and 69 per cent of those
replying said they would specify
individual room thermostats for
control of heating and ventilating
Southern schools have a singular
problem In providing correct class
room atmosphere, since cooling,
rather than heating, is necessary
most of the year.

."But" one teachers' spokesman
said, "we know they are not usu
ally on the teachers' side. They
wanted to get the money paid out
In the hope that this, would cause
a deficit A deficit would have a
two-fold aim discrediting the ad'
ministration and making the tea
chers the goat so that it would be
almost impossible for us to get
anything done for the teachers In
the future. A deficit would cause
a state-wide salary cut for all
state employees, and the teachers
-- naturally -- would be blamed.
"So, although we still feel that
we are entitled to payment of the
pay , raise now, we are not going
to push Sot it"
The question submitted by the
teachers for an opinion by the at
torhew general was the tlpoff. It
wa sexpected that the question
would be "is there a surplus now",
and a report had circulated in
Raleigh that McMullan was ready
to answer yes.
But the teachers asked, instead,
"can the pay raise be retroactive
to July 1, 1949" and McMullan
answered yes. i
McMullan's ' opinion merely
carbon-cepied the action of the
governor t and Advisory Budgen!
Commission. The last two para
graphs of the statement issued
when they refused a teacher pay .brook Murphy of Asheville, Bea
ralse now pledged that the pay- mon Murphy of Durham and Char
ments would be retroactive at the -les Murphy of Washington, D. C.

'Correct lifting should be prac

Each year thousands are victims
of sprains, strains, hernias and
other injuries caused by improper
The most common causes of
lifting injuries are lifting and low

stead of the leg muscles; Insecure
grip or footing and unsafe placing
of hands or feet; using quick, jerk
