TH? UIOII SCHOOL IX SESSION.
Uceo ttl Attendance n All Grades
Now Ittillding Probable.
The Walhalla High School opened
this year with record attendance
from the flrst grade on up through
the eleventh. There were 418 pres
ent on the opening morning, and
since then ten moro have come, and
still are coming. Every grade is Ull
ed to capacity allowed by law, and
the prospect now ls that additional
teachers will have to b? employed
for all grades through tho fifth.
The situation seems to demand tho
starting of the new building that has
s.been contemplated for several years,
lt*X there, ; ts/not room for, anything
tees aro trying to get In shape to
start an eight-room building right
All concerned are very much grat
ified over the attendance In the 11th
grade. The most sanguino expecta
tions have been exceeded. In that
grado Miss Earle's business course
is very popular, one student from the
lower part of tho county coming
here In preference to going to some
city for a business course.
Miss Strihling's normal class was j
authorised again this year by the
State authorities, and she has al
ready enrolled the largest nrfmber
In the history of tho class. 'For tho
present they will occupy the Ameri
can Legion Hall, corner Main and
Catherine streets. This will be suf
ficient notice to any desiring to at
tend to come on and got her name
on tho roll.
The conclusion seems to be that
the students are plentiful and will
ing to work; that the teachers are
hero and ready to discbarge their
part, faithfully. So lt ls d'or tho I
friends and patrons io keep behind
