Of Trustees of School District No. 1
To the Citizens of Newberry,
July 25th, 1913.
It is safe to say that in no period
of American history has the education
of the young received as much attention
as it is today. Xot everything
that is being crowded into our schools
is for the best and neither is all the
criticism of the older school just.
It is a fact, however, that in the
educational world there is unrest and
a nervous eagerness for more light.
If tie termendous energy that is now

and directed toward sane and safe
methods of education, ignorance, the
great enemy of all republican forras
of government, will soon be banished
?rom our country.
It is impossible that our State
should exist in the sisterhood of
American States, and be dead to this
great educational movement. On the
contrary, however, it is safe to assume
that while we cannot claim ?o be
leaders along this new movement, we
are contributing our share toward
these new and progressive plans for
the betterment of our children and
for the general uplifting of the
masses. If this influence is at work
in the State, and it would be difficult
to successfully deny it, then what
snail we say oi our own community
as a part of the State? Certainly we
have not been dead to the progress
round about us.
Our schools have made marvelous
advancement during the past three
years. The enrollment has increased
from a thousand to over twelve
hundred. Three years ago our gra- j
duating class numbered four. This i
year over twenty were graduated j

same number last year. The high
school course of study has been raised
from eight standard units to about
fifteen. The schools are divided into
Primary, Grammar and High school
departments. All departments are
kept distinctly apart and yel a part
of tie whole school system. Gaps
and difficulties in the way of children
bemg successfully transferred
from the Grammar schools to the
High school have been reduced to a
minimum. Newer and better books
b*ve been gradually substituted for
the order books that were not giving
the best results. Xo frictijn and
very little criticism have been manifested.
The schools are growing and new
plans and new bases of operations
have to be constantly found to keep
up with our growing needs. Wha\
was good for the schools in tne years
that have gone are Dot necessarily
best for them now. If we are to keep
abreast of this splendid progress
along educational lines we must be
willing to give earnest thought to the
great questions of education, and
when our study leads us to the conclusion
that funds as well as study
are needed we must be willing to sup
ply the financial needs of the schools.
One mil} additional levy was asked for
by the board for the purpose of making
needed repairs and improvements
in the school property and we are
deeply grateful to the citizens of our
city for making it possible for us to
secure this money. We appreciate
very much the gift of the splendid
piano and beautiful pictures to our
We are enthusiastic over the preeent
outlook of the schools, and we
do not believe the good educational
loving people of Newberry will ever
desert the schools when their help
is asked for, or that they will do
other than try to make still brighter
the alreadv snlendid Drosnects we
confidently believe faces our graded
There have been several changes
made in the teaching forces of the
schools. Prof. Henry Lee Dean, who
has given splendid services the past
three years as superintendent of the
schools, leaves us. Prof. Ernest Anderson,
of North Augusta, assumes the

board has acted conscientiously in
all its work, and we appeal to the
