WEST END SCHOOL.
The Closing Exercises Held Friday
Night-Interesting and Pleasant
The teachers of the West End
school, Misses Laura Blease, Bernice
Martin, and Sallie Mae Burton, de
cided just a few days ago that they
would give an entertainment at the
close of the school. The entertainment
was given Friday night and it was a
decided success. The children did
well and greatly enjoyed the occasion.
The school building is a very hand
some one and was built by the stock
holders of the mill. It is well appoint
ed but there is need for a hall in which
to hold the exercises. Only the par
ents were invited Friday night 1--nd
the hall was crowded.
There are many pretty and bright
children over here and the pity is
they are not given more time to go
to school. Too many of them are
taken away from the school at an
age when they should be kept there.
The total enrolment of the school
the past year was only 164. while
the average attendance was but no.
In a population as large as that of
West End the school population is
much larger than the above enrol
ment would indicate.
. Still it should be said to the credit
of President McCrary that he takes
a lively interest in doing everything
that will promote the best interests
and advance the comfort and happi
ness of the employes of his mill. The
teachers are doing good and faithful
work in this school and the children
are advancing as rapidly as their op
portunity will permit.
Mr. McCrary added another teacher
the past year andiat the recent meet
ing of the board three teachers were
elected. This has enabled the teach
ers to do more thorough and more
It was a pleasure to the representa
tive of this paper to see what a
deep interest the little children, and
some of them were small enough to
be in the kindergarten, took in the
exercises Friday night and how eager
they were to say their parts and es
