Why Worry? 

Talk about economy — you spend hundreds and perhaps 
thousands of dollars for a home, and in a great many cases it 
represents the savings of a lifetime, and yet, rather than 
spend a few dollars in protecting yourself with a fire insurance 
policy, you take the risk of having the total investment wiped 
out in a few hours by a fire. Why not protect yourself and 
ease ycur mind with a policy in on of the strongest and 
best companies doing business in the United States? We 
represent them. 

We also write life insurance and would be glad to protect 
youT wife or loved ones with a policy in a good sound life in- 
surance company. If you think you cannot afford to insure 
your life, have you thought how your family can afford to do 
without you. If you haven't thought of these things, can you 
call yourself a business man and neglect these important 
duties longer. 

The management of our office has sp^nt years in the in- 
surance business and we are confident we can give you the 
best service at the lowest cost. 

We insure anything insurable.

PERFECT SPELLERS. 
_ that the subject of spelling was being neglected in 
gome of our schools, and realizing its importance and hoping to 
arouse a greater degree of interest in this matter our Board of 
Education has decided to give an award of honor to each pupil 
in the public schools of the county who was perfect in spelling 
for the entire term. This experiment has already demonstrated 
its worth and is to become a permanent feature of the educa- 
tional work of the county. The following is a list of those who 
received these awards of honor at the recent county eommenee- 
at Wilkesboro.

TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. 



The meetings of the Teachers' Association have been well 
attended during the past year. Practically all of the teachers 
of the county are members of this body and take an active part 
in the work. These meetings have played no little part in the 
progress which our county has made along educational lines 

33 



TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. 
in the past decade. They have enabled the teachers to meet and 
know each other. They have given them higher ideals, greater 
ii ration, and more love for the work in which they are en- 
1. The colored teachers have an association which meets 
regularly and which has done great good for the schools of that 
race. 

RUEAL LIBRARIES. 



libraries 
me in evei th white and colored, and 

been placed in 
h gratification t< I ow exten- 

l by both pai cl pupils. 

I desire to take this tunity to extend my sincere and 

heartfelt thanks to the friend-- of education who have so great- 
ly aided us in this library work. Without this aid many of our 
libraries which hi ■ into the schools of the county would 

have been established. Wilkes county, by the way, has 
iginal and more supplementary libraries than any other 
nty in the Sta 

have taken all the libraries Loth original and supple- 
tary to which our county is entitled under the law and have 
on hand a nu : ai plications waiting for the State aid to 

»me available in December 1916. This, 1 take it, is one of 
meet unmisl : ig the lines of edu- 

cational'd the strongest indications that 

our people are becoming viti (rested in the success and 

welfare of their child] . . I are 1 rapidly alive to 

the vast importance of placing the world's best literature in 
their hands. The child who has access to a "well ■elected lib- 
rary has a decided advantage over one Less favorably situated. 
This thing of libraries for the public schools is vastly more im- 
portant than many of us with more books than we can read 
realize. Probably we do not stop to think that there are hun- 
dreds of pupils in our schools who hunger and thirst after good 
reading, who idle away the long winter evenings longing for 
something to read but without the opporunity to. satisfy that 
longing. It is for these children that books are necessary, 
books to feed their starving minds, books to incite them to in- 
tellectual gro oks to make them thinking men and wo- 
men.

CERTIFICATES OF MERIT. 



The award of a certificate of merit to all who were perfect 
u attendai ce during the . ar played no little \ art in the 

n, n ■ ttendanee here. 1 • were eight 

dred and fifty-eight children to receive these certificates of 
t, and they came to get them at the Gounty Commencement 
. . one end of 11 county to the other. Some parents travel- 
ed fifty miles to and from the County Commencement and lost 
three days on the trip. This is but one instance of many that 
foight.be cited to show the ever increasing interest on the part 
Btf our people in all thing that pertain to the education of their 
hildren. It shoy nmistakably that they are determined to 
give ; ' ildren a belli ance in tl race of life than was 

allotted to them- This feature of the work will be continued in 
the schools during the coming year. 

THE COUNTY COMMENCEMENT. 



On Aprij 2 • 1916 at Wilkesbcro was held~the sixth County 
Commencement in Wilkes. On that day teachers, school com- 
mitteemen and thi <■ interested in public education gathered 
fr ... ail p. 'its of t he i ounly and witnessed the graduating exer- 
cises of the class of 1916, one hundred and sixty-one strong 
from the common schools. Each graduate was presented with 
a diploma certifying that . ilder had completed the com- 

mon school course. This was indeed a gala day for the people 
of Wilkes and was in keeping with the educational develop- 
ment of the past few years. To my mind this is the most for- 
ward movement of our people along educational lines yet 
undertaken. The County Commencement will be a permanent 
feature in the educational work of our county and no doubt 
•will be instrumental in inspiring many of our boys and girls to 
remain in school who would otherwise drop out in the lower 
gr ides. No doubt a number of these will go through the Coun- 
ty High School thus securing the diploma given on the com- 
pletion of the eleventh grade whfe some of these will go on to 
• liege and complete their education. Who can tell what pos- 
sibilities are wrapped up in the County Commencement. 
THE READING CIRCLE. 



This circle embraces practically every active teacher in the 
county. We have one hundred and twenty-three teachers in 
the county who have completed the four years' course and who 
have been given diplomas from the State Department of Educa- 

85 



tion. Many others have completed one, two or three years in 
this course and have received their certificates of merit. 

This is the largest Reading Circle in the State we are told. 
This is indeed encouraging and shows conclusively that our 
teachers are determined to keep abreast with the times and 
have realized that in order to keep pace with the progress 
along educational lines they must identify themselves with 
every effort for professional improvement. 

THE WORK OF THE YEAR. 



The year just closing has been the most successful one in 
the history of the work here. 

The enrollment and attendance have really been 
phenomenal when we consider the percentage enrolled and in 
attendance in the counts as a whole. In the increase in the 
valuation of school property, in the number of painted school 
houses and in many activities the progress has been truly grati- 
fying. 

During the year we have increased our number of Sup- 
plementary Libraries. We increased the number of houses with 
bells, a number of buildings have been erected; while others 
have been repaired. 

Our County High Schools at Wilkesboro and Ron da have 
done good work this year. These schools give free tuition to all 
public school teachers and to those pupils above the seventh 
grade. The school at Ronda has a course of study covering 
two years while the school at Wilkesboro covers a period of 
four preparing the student to enter college. 

A well equipped dormitory is in operation at Wilkesboro 
where good board is furnished at ten dollars a month. At 
Ronda good board may be obtained in priv^? families at rea- 
sonable rates while cottages are rented to those who wish to 
board themselves. 

By means of circular letters, correspondence, the local 
press, the telephone, through visits and personal interviews I 
have endeavored to keep in close touch with the work this year. 

Awards of Honor .were again presented to those who had 
been perfect in spelling and 165 children were present at the 
County Commencement to receive these. This was a fifteen 
per cent, increase over the number of a year ago. 

An interesting feature of the commencement exercises was 
the award of a gold medal to Mr. Vida Caudill who had attend- 
ed school every day for seven years. 

A colored commencement was held at the fair grounds on 

36 



April 22nd, and was largely attended by the colored people 
from all sections of the comity. Fourteen diplomas of gradua- 
tion were issued, sixty-eight certificates of merit were given for 
perfect attendance and thirty awards of honor were presented 
for perfect spelling during the term. An excellent exhibit by the 
schools was shown in the exhibit hall, this consisting of various 
specimens of needle work, papers on different school subjects, 
etc. 

One new feature introduced during the year was the Moon- 
light School for adult illiterates. Practically all of the teach- 
ers of the county pledged themselves at the November meet- 
ing of the Teachers' Association to do all in their power to 
organize one of these schools in their respctive districts. Hun- 
dreds of these adult illiterates were taught in these schools here 
last year, and a great many of them learned to read and write. 
The ages of these ranged from twenty-two to seventy-three. 
When the final report of these schools was submitted to the 
State Department of Education we were greatly pleased to 
know that Wilkes County led the entire State in the number 
of schools and in the enrollment therein. This work will be a 
permanent feature hereafter in the educational development of 
our county. 

Another feature of the educational work of the year was 
the inauguration of the certificate plan in the school libraries. 
To every pupil in the public schools of the county who had 
read not less than fifty books from the library during the year 
was awarded a library certificate. At the County Commence- 
ment there were several to receive these, one pupil who had 
read seventy-three books within the year. This will also be- 
come a permanent feature of the educational work in the county. 
Hundreds of debates, spelling matches, entertainments and 
parents' meetings have been held during the year. School fairs 
were held in some districts. The State Board of Agriculture at 
its semi-annual meeting in June of last year, and also its meet- 
ing in December made an appropriation for the purpose of en- 
couraging the holding of these fairs. 

Another new feature of the work this year was the pub- 
lication of an educational department in both the local papers 
of the county. The teachers contributed largely to the success 
of thiis feature and it will in all probability be made perman- 
ent feature of the educational of our county. 

In conclusion I wish, to express my grateful appreciation 
of the assistance and cordial co-operation of the members of 
the Board of Education, the clergy, the bar, the press, the 

37 



school committee, the teachers and friends of education all 
over the county who have given to me and to the cause of 
education their most loyal support. 

With thankfulness to God for His blessings upon the edu- 
cational work of the year now closing and relying upon Him 
for Divine guidance may we rededicate ourselves to the great 
task which lies out yonder in the future before uis. May the 
friends of popular education be aroused to a sense of their 
duties, their responsibilities and their opportunities and let no 
one be content until proper educational facilities are provided 
for all, a comfortable building properly equipped and above all 
a teacher trained for the work, one whose personality can 
touch, inspire and direct the boys and girls of the State ; teach- 
ers who can open the eyes of the pupils to the opportunities ly- 
ing before them, teachers whose lives are in every way an 
inspiration to their pupil:: and which will point them to higher, 
purer and nobler things.

Teaching the second of these must be done as universally 
by the regular teacher as the first and third. A specialist to 
teach handwriting should be no more necessary than one to 
teach reading or arithmetic. All well equipped teachers pos- 
sess a degree of mastery in these three subjects. It follows 
that material for teaching handwriting should be created for 
the regular teacher as are texts in reading and arithmetic. 

Berry's Writing Books in material and method enable the 
regular grade teacher to secure the same good results in hand- 
writing that she gets in reading and arithmetic.

For all kir.ds cf luildirgs with pitched 
roofs, as show i by illustrations, ranging 
from an ordinary dwelling to a mansion or 
imposing school or church, 

CORTRIGHT METAL SHINGLES 

are found to be more adaptable than other 
forms of roofing. Their fire-proof feature 
and protection afforded against lightning 
make them particularly desirable for cover- 
ing country buildings. They are storm- 
proof, attractive in appearance and durable. 
Before re-roofing that house or barn, or 
buying material for the new building consult
