Excerpt from A Study of the Winston-Salem Schools The work of the Home-County Study Clubs at the University of North Carolina has attracted the attention of thoughtful people all over the country. It would be difficult to estimate the good that has been done by these intimate studies of home-county conditions by students who counted it a privilege to do their part in helping their county find itself. Forsyth County and Winston-Salem desired a survey even more intimate. We wanted the University to send us men to go over the field and tell us "where we lead, where we lag and the way out." The request was presented to President Graham. He gladly fell in with our plan and made it possible for Winston-Salem and Forsyth County to have the most complete survey yet made in the State. The survey was made by Prof. E. C. Branson, Dr. Charles Lee-Raper and Dr. L. A. Williams. It will be published in two parts. The first part will contain two sections. The first section is The Social and Economic Survey of the County by Prof. Branson, and the second section is the Industrial Survey of the City by Dr. Raper. The second part is presented in this volume and contains the Educational Study of the Schools of Winston-Salem by Dr. Williams. Dr. Williams came to Winston-Salem in February, 1917, and made a personal inspection of the school system. Every opportunity was afforded him that the facts might be known. No attempt was made to dictate in any way what should be put in or what should be left out. All available records were placed at his disposal. The study was made with the hearty approval of the School Board and the co-operation of the Superintendent, principals and teachers. The delay in printing the results of the study has been brought about by a combination of circumstances which we could not control. While the public has not seen the findings, they have been known to the school officials and we have already acted on many of them. Many more are under consideration. The city has already greatly benefitted by the work of Dr. Williams and Dr. J. Henry Johnston, who ably assisted Dr. Williams in many ways. It is the intention of the school officers to continue this study and have Dr. Williams make an examination of the teaching results of the schools. We desire to express our hearty thanks to the State University and to Dr. Williams in particular for what has already been done for our schools.

CHAPTER I. BALLYCLORAN HOUSE AS FIRST SEEN BY THE AUTHOR. In the autumn, 184—, business took me into the West of Ireland, and, amongst other places, to the quiet little village of Drumsna, which is in the province of Connaught, County Leitrim, about 72 miles w.n.w. of Dublin, on the mail-coach road to Sligo. I reached the little inn there in the morning by the said mail, my purpose being to leave it late in the evening by the day coach; and as my business was but of short duration, I was left, after an early dinner, to amuse myself. Now, in such a situation, to take a walk is all the brightest man can do, and the dullest always does the same. There is a kind of gratification in seeing what one has never seen before, be it ever so little worth seeing; and the gratification is the greater if the chances be that one will never see it again. Now Drumsna stands on a bend in the Shannon; the street leads down to a bridge, passing over which one finds oneself in the County Roscommon; and the road runs by the well-wooded demesne of Sir G—— K——; moreover there is a beautiful little hill, from which the demesne, river, bridge, and village can all be seen; and what farther agremens than these could be wanted to make a pretty walk? But, alas! I knew not of their existence then. One cannot ask the maid at an inn to show one where to find the beauties of nature. So, trusting to myself, I went directly away from river, woods, and all,—along as dusty, ugly, and disagreeable a road as is to be found in any county in Ireland.
