RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT On Sunday, January 22, 1933, at his home in Sparta, R. H. Hackler passed to his reward. He had been a semi-invalid for about two years and at times suf fered Intensely, but the end came peacefully. Brother Hackler was'a good busi ness man and had Bpent nearly all his business life in Sparta. About fifteen years ago he became Super intendent of the Sparta Methodist Sunday School which position he held at his death. To his Sunday school he gave the same careful at tention he gave to his business and even after he was unable to attend It was constantly on his mind. Now, therefore, be it resolved by the teachers and students of Sparta Methodist Sunday School: ^ That we bow in bumblewubmissiorf Funeral Services Held Monday Afternoon For Robert H.

T. Allen show. White teachers, principals and su pervisors last year received a total of 314,720,585 from public school funds of the State, an average an nual salary of 3859.50, or, on the 12 months basis, 371.68 a month, the records show. i Records of Personnel Director F. L. Dunlap show that 992 persons were on the State payroll on boards, commissions, in departments and otherwise employed, including every service from negro janitors, messen gers and elevator operators to the highest paid State officials, and that these 992 persons drew an average of 31,625 a year. If these are re duced 32 per cent, as has been sug gested, they will still receive an av erage of 31.205 a year. A cook last year received a monthly salary of $69.33 after the cut and probably his board, Mr. Dunlap’s records further show. He was drawing $91.00 a month before the cut was made. In the 97 dif ferent classifications of service with the State Highway Commission the average annual salaries ranged from $1,787.65 to $2,270, Mr. Dunlap’s records further show. School people do not think these rates of pay too high, but they do submit that If a cook is worth $69.33 a month and highway em ployes worth from $148.79 to $190 a month, the teachers should cer tainly be worth the $70.63 paid them. General State employees and offi cials numbering 992 received $1. 062,310, or an average of $1,626 last year, while white schooi teach ers and principals, 23,290, received $14,720,685, an average of $85f.60. While the State employees received nearly twice as much as the teach ers, school folks believe that the value of service rendered the State by the teachers certainly approached that rendered by these employees.
