FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 1922.
The large number of graduates
from the local high school the pres
ent year taken in connection with
the fact that ne<arly all, if not
quite all, of those who graduate, in
spite of the hard times, intend to
go away in the fall to the different
colleges, 6hould indicate to the
man of affairs, to the father and
to the mother, in Abbeville that
good schools are an asset.
All of us who have a right con
ception of the rights of the child
as well as of the duty we owe to
the state should know that good
schools are worth more than tall
buildings, paved streets, city halls,
nr nn vthinc else<. Without the
training which conies with them
the boy or the girl who lives in
the next two or three decades will
have a rough road to travel.
And what an asset an education
is to a man. When the hard timos
come, when buildings are emptj
and the farms unprofitable, when
'banks fail and other emterprises of
fer nothing to the investor, the
trained mind becomes an assel
which men valuer It continues tc
pay dividends with its earning
power, as well as with the abilitj
or leadership which it develops. H
enables men to think aright, t<
know the rights of others, to re
spect these rights, and thus make!
of a man an instrument for useful
ness in his community.
Aro we going to deny such ai
asset to the child of the future? I
it enough to educate our own? Is i
right to say that I am able to edu
cate my own children, let others di
the same? Is it not far better t<
join the forces of right-thinkinj
and of right.doing and undertake
+a mate it. -r>ossiblft for every chili
in the community to lay up i
store-house in the days of his o
her youth which will help in thi
days which are to come? Can wi
not do that much for the stab
which in these latter days has beei
so much a loser through ignorance
and so much belittled because o:
the percentage of its illiteracy?
All of us would liko to do some
thing in life which will be i
monument to ourselves, and may
ibe help others. We think there cai
bo no better monument to a man';
efforts than that ho has helpei
someone else to get the necessar:
it*aining to live a life of usefulnes:
to others and t9 the state. It fan,
not be done except through th<
'schools. None of us left alone cai
do much that way, but all togethei
we can support and operate school:
will Ko o wnnnyionf tn f* Vit >
generation, a monument eiri'bodiec
dn the lives of those who follow us
and a blessing to mankind foreveT
These arc. things to think about
We trust that the boys and girl:
who are graduating in Abbevilli
tonight will think of them and de.
tprminr. that, hannen what tyiat
they will not be deterred fron
seeking after knowledge. W<
trust that the parents of thes<
'boys and girls are determined tha
they shall have the best that th<
educational facilities of the stat<
and country afford. We mighi
even hope that the people of this
city, throwing aside for a time the
selfishness and prejudices witt
which we are so greatly cursed,
woum aexenmme to Duna m tne
city of Abbeville schools worthy of
our best traditions, ihese to oper_
ate for the benefit of the. children
whom we would have less slothful
