irepairs that should be made IF we only had the money.
JJJfJ There is confidence that the legislature in January will make
Jsbme financial provision for rebuilding school plants throughout
'ftje state, but the provision will have to be potent enough to have
real effect, for most of our schools have reached the point where
''nuttine monev in mealier repairs is like trying to fill a bottcm-
No major repairs ire being made at Atlantic, for the plans
for an entirely new building there make it rather useless to sink
much-needed funds in a building which in several years may be
unoccupied. It is, however, being kept in a usable condition,
r?ir grpat deal of improvement is needed at both colored
schools, actually a new one should be built in Morehead City.
, Minor repairs are necessary at Beaufort and more extensive
Wies at Morehead City's school. But with the amount of money
at hand, the policy Is, by necessity, "Repair the worst places
' "Ilrst, the not-so-bad spots will have to wait."
& . One impressive improvement is the addition of lunchrooms
at Camp Glenn and Smyrna which have just been approved for
aid under the child feeding program. Lunchrooms are already
to operation at Newport, Beaufort, and Morehead City.
Part of the auditorium at Smyrna has been converted into
a lunchroom, the other part into a science room. A new steam
heating system has been installed, supplying heat to both the
main building and the adjacent building which houses the audi
torium and several classrooms. A large bouquet is due the Parent-Teacher
association which has supplied money for lunchroom
The new indoor restrooms Iiave made Smyrna as up-to-date
and modern as anyone could wish.
A science room will be Installed at Newport in the near fu
ture, two additional classrooms in the basement have been com
pleted, window sash has been replaced and a new water pump in
stalled. A more modern toilet system is requirod, but this pro
ject, too, has had to take its place on the waiting list.
,,M Camp Glenn school was literally near a state of collapse
f, dicn the school ropair crew under J. L. Eaton, one of the best
ell around repairmen in the county, went there this summer. Rot
ten joists which crumpled to dust almost at a touch have been
replaced. Mr. Eaton says he's surprised that the roof didn't simp
ly fall in long ago.
Magic in the form of a metal building has placed two new
classrooms at Markers Island. Spacious windows admit lots of
light and the pine-paneled walls leave nothing to be desired In
the modern finishing line. '
Grades 9 to 12 will be housed there. By putting up this
fjr Dullding, which can be taken apart in sections and Jioyed ) nec
v essary, two classrooms have been obtained for the amount of
money it would have required to construct only one as part of
the building already standing.
Thousands of dollars have been spent, and spent wisely, on
ur schools during the past year and what has been done can-
t be seen merely by driving by the buildings on a sunny after

are that the thin-film evaporator
designed by Dr. Stanley L. Baker
and his associates will do the trick.
Through the cooperation of W. H.
Potter, and the Beaufort Fisheries
personnel, enough stickwater was
obtained to produce sufficient con
centrate for laboratory and factory
testing. The resulting product will
be used for fortifying cattle,
chicken, and hog feed, thus provi
ding additional vitamins, proteins,
and amino acids and ensurine
farm products of better quality and
The machinery used is of pilot
plant size. Evaporators of four
times the capacity will be sent
down here shortly and used to con
centrate stickwater from the fall
catches. Manufactured by Shock
Gusmer, of Hoboken. N. J., the
equipment has been developed in
accordance wilh the AMSE code
and is National-board approved.
Designed originally for the con
tration of yeast, it has also been
used in the preparation of tomn-
to paste and is adaptable for agar
"The basic objective," says Dr.
Baker, "was high speed evapora
tion or concentration at a rate
fast enough to prevent biochemical
changes in the concentrate. The
utilization of stickwater could be,
and should be, an economical ope
ration for both the fish factory and
the firm doing the concentrating."
Success of the venture, which
would bring additional revenue
from material now being discard
ed, depends on the amount of
stickwater available. Baker hopes
eventually to get raw material
from all of the plants in Beaufort
and Morehead City. It will lee
piped from nearbv plants, hauled
by barge and tank car from more
distant points. Some questions
stHl remain to be answered whe
ther, for instance, the vitamin con
tent of summer and winter fish
is different, not to mention pro
blems of shipping, storage and
arranging for transportation of
raw materials to the Lennoxville,
plsnt. When these kinks arc iron
ed out, this area will have a new
industry and Sperti will have the
secondary product it needs.
Incidentally, Manager Harold'
Leahy reports he is in the market
for dry weed and will pay ten
cents a pound to anyone who can
deliver "moss" unadulterated with
mud, refuse, and other types of
seaweed. Like the egg-money of
farm wives, the proceeds from the
sale of weed often go to the wom
en, who collect along the shore
plants. It is to be hoped more
nnd more people who are other
wise unemployed will avail them
selves of this opportunity. There
is no reason why agar shouldn't
be made from Carolina seaweed,
(especially as it gives a better gel),
instead of the Florida weed which
is now being shipped in to help
the plant going.
A carload of dried weed was
brought in from Florida several
days ago. The previous manage
ment was too dependent on local
weed and couldn't get the volume
it needed to keep going. Other
sources have been found to supple
ment the flow of raw material.
Local weed is here for the taking,
