The Study Center for the teachers
of Fairfield county met at the Com
munity House in Winnsboro on Sat
u1iay morning November the 4th.
About forty teachers were present.
_?'iz Dessie Poag, of Winthrop Col
lege, who will conduct the course in
methods was present. After Miss
Poag's recitation, the teachers ad
iourned to go to the mass meeting
of citizens called for, discussion of
roads foi Fairfield county.
There are sixty seven teachers in
SFairfield county. What a force these
educated men and women could ex

they (1o, they should take note of cur

communities. The Study center could
be made a clearing house for ideas.
each teacher carrying back to his
community what he gets by contact
with his fellows.
The attendance last Saturday was!
by far the largest yet had. Forty out
of sixty seven was a pretty good per
centage. Nothing would increase the
confidence of the people in those who
teach their children than earnest,
faithful attendance on these teacher's
meetings. Mr. Average American
sees a great deal more than he is giv
en credit for. He knows pretty well
who is giving value received and is a
tolerable judge of evidence.
The Fourth Grade is a bit vain over
getting all the visitors-but their van
ity is the kind worth while, the brand
marked "self respect". The teachers
of the county use the fourth grade
room for their Akeetings every two
weeks. The flower boxes, pot plants,
autumn leaves, and "hallowe'en dec
orations last Saturday were much not
iced and admired.
Mt. Zion's foot-ball team sufferel
overwhelming defeat at Fort Mill last
Friday. The team offered no alibi.
They were simply beaten. But a de
feat is a small thing provided a good
hard clean fight was put up. In fact
a good beating is sometimes desirable.
Every man who tries to do anything
in this world must learn to meet dis
appointment and keep his fighting
I spirit. It is not defeat that matters.
It is how a man takes it. Nothing
tests "gameness" so much as a defeat.
The fellow who car lose, and smile,
and try again is the man who wmli
finally win. "Are we down-hearted"?
; The girls are practicing hard for
basket ball. The interest is high.
We will put out a good team and we
expect Winnsboro to back it up.
i We hear occasionally from the
;boys and girls of last year's class.
All of them seem to be making good.
Mt. Zion expects-and has a right to.
expect good reports of them.
Why is it that Alumni of Colleges
seem so willing to help their Alma
maters and never seem to think of
~their graded schools and high schools ?
Which does most for a man or woman,
2the college that keepsl..im four years.
-or the public school that keeps him
eleven ? The institution that teaches
him his "A B C's " or the one that
gives him his A. B. degree. Which
as a rule, needs his support most
keenly ? We may be heretic, but we
incline to the side of the pubik
schools. We think decidedly that th:
Alumni and Alumn-ae of the Colleges
of South Carolina should think, if
not less of their Alma maters least a
little more of the institutions that
made it possible for them to go tc
After all is not education the art
ofbeing sincere ? Be the man God
made you. Don't put on airs! Don't
show off! Don't be a "smart Alec!
Learn once for all that you can't fool
the old world. You may get away
with a blnff for a while, but it will
fail in the end.
