To the fillers in the newspaper and Learned something that somehow had escaped me there practically Ain t no More fillers in the newspaper. Anymore alter Hunting through nearly too pages of newsprint i finally found one it said Quot Ollie Virgil a dominican Republic native coaches third base for the Montreal expos a and that is what the Happ Little filler has come to by Lee Mortimer Enterprise sch writer High Point has had to expand its Community development housing assistance plan three told to win Federal approval of its cd application originally City officials hoped to pull out All the stops to build and rehabilitate housing in the Southside area of High Point but the i s dept of housing and Urban development which must approve the cd application thinks High Point should extend housing assistance efforts to wider areas of the City t he Southside h is been the scene of slum clearance for the past five years those efforts have Boon stepped up considerably the last two years old and dilapidated housing has been removed but Little replacement housing has been added now City officials would like to use cd funds to Complete the Job Jim Pennington assistant City manager explained that i d would like to enable lower income people to live in All areas of the City scattered site Quot housing is the concept which is coming into Vogue to accomplish thai goal the City seems caught Between two sets of i d guidelines designed to get the most desirable housing for people Pennington said one is equal Opportunity for people to live in any area of the City they wish the other is the requirement that the City seek citizen participation in deciding How cd Money should be spent the residents have been telling us Over and Over emphatically we want housing put Back into the Southside a Pennington said he thinks there will be a lot of disappointed people if that objective is impeded but Hud has not said the Southside should be reemphasized the Agency thinks More efforts should go into scattered site housing to do both. Hud said the total Widdi Gjonai housing goal should be tripled Pennington said the original plan called for 140 units of new housing mostly for Southside i d said the figure should be increased to 435 the problem will come in attracting financing under Section eight of the Federal Tunis my Law private firms will be sought to develop housing units the statute sets up a subsidy for tenants but leaves the responsibility for initial financing to the Developer but to attract developers to such a plan the finished product would have to be relatively Low Cost. Pennington said in Ower Cost housing could be More easily developed on less expensive land in the Southside than in Northern and Northwestern sections where land is much More expensive he said housing Assisto e would not have to by restricted to constructing new units Low income people could move into existing in Ler Tel. Priv cd Kou ing using rent nub sidles provided tinder Section eight Hud claims High Point is capable of scattered site housing because the Agency computed the average rent Here to be about $149 per month for an existing two bedroom unit. But Pennington said that figure is misleading because it represents the average Between High and Low priced housing he said High Point has mostly either Quot luxury Quot apartments or Low priced marginal units there is very Little in Between which is moderately priced he said Ile said the City is going to go along with the plan As Hud requires but Hopes to accomplish its goals in Southside but if the goals Are endangered Quot we May have to Challenge Hud he said.

The statement which says the prescription is being issued at the patient s request is accompanied by a pamphlet outlining All possible complications of the pills or Lawrence said she was a astounded Quot at the number of her patients taking the Pill who when questioned about their medical history said they did not take any drugs when i got them in my office and asked them what form of birth control they used they d say the she said the women did not say they were Quot taking a Medicine Quot or Lawrence said Asheboro a major Quot reorganization a of the North Carolina zoological society has been made and three salaried employees will lose jobs As a result society officials announced Friday prior to the meeting of the state zoo Council that the three positions including that of Veteran zoo employee mrs Ann Cagle will be terminated As of aug i. Mrs Cagle has been act be in the zoo Effort since it began in Randolph county and for the past several years had served As the society a executive Secretary mrs Cagle has already left the society s employment As has mrs Molly Farlow who worked in the memberships division the third position to be Cut is held by mrs Marie Brown who will leave on aug i. Purpose of the changes a society representative said was to Cut Down on expenses so More of the funds raised will go towards the zoo and the Purchase of additional animals. No changes is expected at this time in the position of president of the society a position now held by former Charlotte banker. Doug Aitkens the zoo society president told reporters the reorganization is not due to the society being in financial difficulty in fact he said the organization which raises for the state zoo is in the Best shape financially the group has Ever been in the society was originally created to raise funds for the slate zoo. Since the zoo itself cannot be involved in solicitation of private funds or donations under state statutes some criticism has been levelled at the body because it has failed to raise the needed funds to begin construction of the slate zoo facility the major portion of the funds which Are being used to Eon struck the first phase of the zoo has come from $1 million donations from the state legislature Over a two year period and a similar one from the Smith Reynolds foundation of Winston Kalem the legislative body has also provided most of the funds used to administer the zoo the Reynolds foundation promised to give the zoo $1 million if the zoo could raise $4 million the society later had to go to foundation officials and ask that the $4 million Matching funds despite friends provision be dropped making an outright gift of a million dollars to the zoo foundation officials agreed and the construction of the first phase of the zoo was Able to get underway earlier this year society officials blamed the recent recession and Gas shortage As the reason they failed to raise their share of the funds the most successful fund raising Effort of the society to Date has been the statewide Lele a Thon held earlier this year which raised something Over $400,000 the first phase of the zoo.

And he was offered a full time Job on a Dairy farm the immigration official. Sam May. Was sympathetic with Marie s desire to slay in Lexington and Davidson county sheriff Jaybird Mccrary and county manager Jim Phillips talked with May for about an hour but Mccrary said the chances w Ere Quot slim to none Quot that the deportation proceedings could be stopped Quot he May has a Job to do like you and me Quot Mccrary said concern for education reaches politicians everybody thinks of education As Quot taking a break Quot in the summer it s not taking a break this summer however and that s because political candidates gearing up Tor the aug 17 primary Art getting the Gist of the Quot feeling that s in the people Are getting mad about this Broad thing called education most of All they Are mad because some children can t read by the end of third Grade because some can t read by the end of Junior High school because some can to read when they receive their High school diplomas people Are getting mad enough to in Sist. Quot get Back to basics get Back to basics Quot Ben purr in. Candidate for state superintendent of Public instruction has sensed this desire in people and is Basing his platform on getting Back to basics a in the primary he will be facing supt Craig Phillips for the democratic nomination gubernatorial candidates have sensed this feeling and Are not just paying lip service to the needs in education they Are delving deep into the causes of Why so Many students Are not learning tile skills they need to read write and do mathematical computations effectively. They Are nol dwelling excessively on the needs it higher education As so Many candidates have done in the past but they Are ferreting out problems that begin Way Down there in kindergarten and first Grade and never end for some children candidates Are not just saying Quot i will try to support a raise in teacher salaries and do the Best i can to see that education gets its fair share of Hie budget. Quot they Are saying a this is exactly How i propose to do these things Quot i think that All dedicated teachers will agree with me that while a raise in salary is important teachers Are not just listening for the can diddle who flatly promises a raise in teacher salaries and nothing More some segments of the Public picture teachers As eternally holding out their Grubby Little hands for More and More Money not caring if they figuratively step on childrens bodies along tile Way to get it. This is simply not True. Teachers realize the problems in our schools and teachers know that when a it gets right Down to it Quot the. Classroom teacher is the most motivating influence in the teaching of Reading in the teaching of anything All of the legislative backing in the world All of the cooperation of the governor All of the Best planning in the superintendent s office cannot make a Good teacher out of a poor one yet a candidate for governor brought this up in a conversation with me last weekend in Raleigh. Someone he said Quot asked me it i did t realize that a bigger salary increase for teachers would mean that the state would just keep rewarding poor teachers with higher and higher salaries along with those who deserve a salary increase Quot his answer to the person intrigued me yes. He said that was an inescapable tact a that some who did t deserve a higher salary would automatically get it. Quot but Quot he continued Quot higher salaries would in time attract the very Best to the teaching profession around by Fay Marks teaching would be a highly reputable occupation and the very top College students would want to go into the profession a think of the logic of that. It is already happening really not the top salaries but the realization that teaching is becoming a highly competitive occupation it s not so lucrative that a great Many More people Are choosing it As a profession but there Are just fewer jobs available for applicants. Therefore colleges and universities Are tailoring their programs with this Stark reality in mind they Are trying to set up programs that will Weed out undesirable candidates in the teacher education program before they get in too deep to choose another Field the requirements for acceptance into teacher education programs Are becoming stricter applicants who can t meet these requirements Are Bewig discouraged against pursuing a career in education you can put the blame Here and there for the failures in our educational system a you can paraphrase the Victory cry of political parties and place the blame from Tho White House to the statehouse to Hie court House to the you can blame the parents and the Home you can blame discipline problems and Low teacher salaries open classrooms and closed Money supplies and you May be right on every count never before though have the people of North Carolina seemed to in tent so organized so Quot together Quot in trying to find out Why every child in the state is not learning to read. Write and do simple arithmetic effectively. Its not just in Lins state but in others that people Are beginning to demand the answer log Why Quot colleges and universities Are shocked to find that Large percentages of their freshman classes Are very inadequately prepared in sentence construction and grammar. This is an election year and while the governor cannot change education by himself and neither can any other elected official a each Wie who is elected can do his part in studying the educational Kaleidoscope to see which parts fit and which ones done to. We have enough Money in North Carolina to see that teachers Are properly paid we also have enough to devise and maintain ways of seeing that Only the very Best enter the teaching profession More important1though. We live enough Money to Sec that every child learns to read and that the course titles Quot corrective Reading and Quot corrective English Quot can be stricken from College catalogues
