The number of school teachers to
day is almost three times as great
as in 1900. There were less than a
dozen colleges in North Carolina 50
years ago; today there are 59. There
were 20 public high schools in the
State in 1900 - today there are 959.
: In 1903, cotton farmers in North
Carolina received $28 million for
their crops, Last year, cotton grow
ers received $102 million. Tobacco
crops In 1903. brought the farmers
lust over $9 million. Last year the
total was almost 459 million.
(Manufacturing in North Carolina
since 1900 has Increased 40 times -compared
to the national average
of 14 times. Over 5,000 new busin

average of 14 times. Over 5,000 new

North Carolina ranks second in
the nation in number of farms with
