stated today all was in readiness for
the opening session of the 1946 term
Repair work, in progress during
the past month at several of the
school buildings, is coming along
nicely, according to the superinten
dent, who stated that the roof 'at the'
Perquimans High School ' is almost
complete, but lack of materials and
competent labor has slowed the pro
gress of the repair work as a whole.
Mr. Johnson stated that rooms at
the high school, in need of paint,
-would not receive this attention until
next Spring, and that repairs to the
heating system at the building would
be started as soon as materials " ar
rive. He added it will be impossible
to obtain a new furnace for the high
school before next January.
School bus routes for the coming

moat imDortant in the entire career
of any human being, in that it marks
the beginning of a journey that may
be subject to many interruptions, lor
various causes. When we, as adults,
anticipate a journey, we undergo a
period of preparation, in keeping
with the importance of that journey.
We provide ourselves with certain
necessities, if we are bent on busi
ness, and with certain luxuries, if we
are going for pleasure and recrea
tion. But these journeys are of
little importance, compared with that
which lies ahead for the child who is
entering school for the first time.
It is highly essential, then, that
those responsible for our children's
physical, psychological and mental
welfare see that they are prepared.
This responsibility falls directly upon
the shoulders of parents, to whom
these little ones must look for pro
tection. They have no means of car
ing for themselves, but must look to
those who brought them into the
world, or have assumed the respon
sibility for their well being.
It has been estimated that about
one-third of the children who enter
school for the first time have correc
tive nhvsical defects, which, if neg
lected, may mean their educational,
hence intellectual, undoing. these
defects are both hidden and patent.
Some are not even known, to exjgt
being impairments of which neither
the child nor its pareit3 may be
aware without a physical examina
tion by a competent medical doctor,
or, in some instances, specialists in
the diagnosis and treatment of cer
tain types of physical impairment.
Hence, it is hisrhlv important that,
before sending your child to school,
