Principals A. "W. Plummer and J. B.

time. Prof. Plummer has the Four

weeks and the sessions will be held in
the afternoon at the Ninth- Street
school, of which Prof. Millard is prin

for each school.
"My boys and girls got away from
me today," j said Prof. Plummer last
night. "The enrollment was only half
as great as the enrollment in the old

to come In the afternoon and I suppose
the circus was too much for them."
Every principal who reported yester
