North Carolina's Tx.V.ic' school
property, listed in , tc.-.s of school'

in value from 91,6850 in 1CC3J1900
to $282,668,116 in 18C0-E1.- During
this period of 61 years the number of
schoolhouses decreased from 7,168 to
3,466. . j r :- ' ;.;ff. v
Present (1960-61) average value
per schoolhouse is or based
upon the number oi pupils enrolled,
$310.58. Average classroom value is
$9,186. All of these "value" figures
greatly . exceed similar figures for
preceding years. ':; y-,;-
From the beginning of tne year
1899-1900 to -1914-15 (to 1919-20 for
Negroes) the number of schoolhouses
followed in increasing trend. ; Since
these years there has. been an almost
constant decreasing , trend, with the
number for white ' children almost
static in recent years while the num
ber for Negroes decreased more rap-
adly. This period shows the greatest
consolidation of white schools to have
been between 1920 and 1940, whereas
for Negroes there was some consoli
dation during that period, yet since
1945 there has been a further gradual
consolidation trend among schools for
Negroes. Within the past three years

due in a large measure to the stimu

A decrease in the number of school-
houses together with the increase in
total value of property provides an
increase of nearly $17,000 in the aver

now approximately $82,000. The fact
that the differential between average
value of schoolhouses for whites and
Negroes is greater indicates the need
for better school buildings for Neg;-
roes. L?: ' J- . ;
A similar differential is indicated
by the average value- based on the
number of pupils enrolled. Although
there was a noticeable increase in
this respect from 1949-60 to J950-61,
these averages have not yet reached a
point indicating adequacy of school
plant facilities for Negroes. How
ever, on the positive side it can be said
that the situation in this respect is
about that obtained for white children
ten years ago. ' ; , . ''
On . a classroom basis the ratio of
value as between those for white and
Negro is . less than 2 to 1.
Average per pupil" values of proper
ty in county units were: white, $309-
71: Negro, $127.81, ' In city units
similar averages were: white, $489.32;
Negro, $261.23. ! :! K :' -y 'X. .
On this item county units ranged
from $109.96 in Macon to $676.71 in
Chowan in the ease of white pupils,
and from $5.71 in Mitchell to $684.48
in Forsyth for Negroes. City units
ranged from $107.49 in Andrews to
$1,071.54 In Asheville for whites and
from $$14.86 in Laurinburg (in a pri
vately owned building) to $622.91 in

According to a report, made up dur
ing the past year by the local Snper
intendent of 'Schools, the Pemutmans
system is made up of three .units for
white pupils and two for Negroes.
The three white unite contain 38 class
rooms! and has a total valuation of
$330,000, while the two units for
Negroes contain 45 classrooms and
has a total valuation of $373,620.

Small XEsss To Eeia
Appearing On r,arl:et
: A small egg doesn't necessarily
mean an. undesirable egg, yet many
consumers have shown resistance to
buying: the small pullet , eggs, which
will eoon be coming to market
(However, K. S. Dearstyne, head of
the State College Poultry Depart
ment, points out, freshly laid, care
fully handled pullet eggs possess
high nutritive quality, comparing f av-
orably to large eggs from older birds.
Dearstyne says that' pullet eggs
should be nriced down on a compara
ble basis to large eggs, if the small
eggs areto move. ' The producer and
the merchant must handle the prob
lem of pricing the eggs in such a
way that consumer resistance is over
come. " '
For the welfare of the industry, the
many pullet eggs that will appear on
the market during late summer and
early autumn must be sold.
Market eggs now available can be
grouped in three classes: ' ''.-
1. Freshly, laid large eggs coming
from hens about to go out of produc
tion.' Good eggs are secured from
such birds, but because of duration
of lay, the shell texture is declining
in strength and some of these eggs
: 2. Eggs coming out of storage.
These' are usually ' of high . quality
when stored, but the quality falls off
relative to the length of storage and
method of treatment. . ,
S. Pullet eggs. When pullets come
into production, eggs sise is usually
quite small. It takes about three
months for a chicken to build its eggs
to, maximum sise. Heredity, diet and
.management are factors affecting the
sise. ' - -
