TURNED OVER TO CIVIC ASSO-'
The edition of The Herald and
News of December 1 will be in tho
hands of the Civic association of
Newberry. The advertisements and
the business end is theirs. We arc
only going to print it for them. They
furnish the advertisements r.na make
the contracts and collect the money j
for that paper and give the publisher'
a commission on all .business carried
in the paper. Ar.d we have contracted
to print a minimum number of,
copies of u,000 which is some TOO;
more than our regular edition and
we may print more than that number.
It depends somewhat upon'^c
amount of business ;which may .|| sfe
cured from tile advertising p^bli&i
We have one or two contracts b^ti^
year and it is understood that ifitije
copy from these ccntracts calls tor ^n
insertion on that date we will have to
carry out the contract. All, or most
all, of the advertising in The^if&raPS
and News is on the flat rate basis, and
each issue stands alone and for itself.
i. We feel that we should make this
statement in -advance so that ;aU .advertisers
might be apprised of'-the
fact that the issue of December 1 is
in the hands-of the Civic assoc^tr.on.
We are trying to get oixLisaJvedule

The nicest piece of road we have
seen in Newberry is the road out by
Helena and just beyond % m oh
the road to Tranwood school. The top
s ; soil used was the right kind, and it
was properly mixed and tfre road is
as smooth as a plank that is dressed.

iv The read to Whitiaire is riglit
also. In fact it is cne among the best
v- of the highways in the county. It is
a pleasure to drive* to Wh'.tmir-e now.'
EE \ ;
T. J. W. is after the highway commission
about the road that is going
to be built out by Union school. They
do need a road down that side. We
understand that the work of laying
out the road is now in progress and
we must wait in patience ,,a.nd the
road will come. So the road from Po-;
maria to Little Mountain is badly j
Tteprfod. and then the crosc road out
;by St. Pauls church, and down to Pomaria
should be built. Personally
we would like to see the road across
here go by Jolly Street school and
tiJce that route to Pomarla, but erithi
er one will help. ,
. If you want to see some pretty disi
play windows take a look at the four
to the store of the American Sales
company. They give the place the
metropolitan look and would do credit
to Atlanta. And Mr. Pintchuck says
he has not yet done what he is goinQ:
to do, when his fixtures come, in the
matter of having pretty display win-.
dows. It is evidence of several
things, it means that the town is
arrowing and making an effort to go
forward, and :<i stresses the fact that
the merchant who has the nice windows
takes a pride in his store and
his business and w:?ts to make the
very best appearance that Jte can aad
aiso make his place attractive, and
that means a whole lot for the merchant
and for the town also. Let us
r II t- - to have attractive windows. '
These streets such as Glenn on
which the traveler enters the* .-town,'
that is those leading inio the highways,
should be kept at least as good
as the highway. We do r.ot like to
hear people say, well, we must be in
town from the condition of the ro:d,'
+ Virt .-trviof Kn: *">cr nUirh chilli
ths highway. And if you will ride
out Glenn and most of the ethers
leading into the highways you will
find they are rough and bad and keep
you jolting along. College stree""
docs well and so does Main street ou .
to the highway, but -Glenn and Boundary
are especially bad. Fix 'em up
a I title, town folk, please.
Mr. Rhyne has done grer.t thin?
for Christian education in that gift
he has recently made to Lenoir college
in Hickory, N. C., and the beaU
ty s.bout it, he gave the money while
he is still living. That is the way to
do, if you have the money and expect
to give any of it to the use of
those things which will help, give it
!while you live so that you may see
and enjoy the blessing the gift has
been. Now if some of the wealthy
friends of Newberry college, and
some who wanted to do something
really worth while, would just give
old Newberry a couple hundred
thousand, even, it would be a great'
blessing to the Chrsitian education of,
the youth of the land, and that is the!
only sort of education that is going
to furnish the leaven and the bailast
to keep the old ship of sate from go-:
ing asea on the breakers and. well,'
the great educational need today is |
to teach more of the precepts of the j
golden rule. I,
AMONG THE SCHOOLS <$'
I want to impress upon the teach-1
crs that the next meeting of the!
county teachers association will bej
held at the auditorium of the New-j
berry high school on Saturday, 25th,;
of this week at 11 o'clock, and I want!
to urge every teacher in the county?
to be present. I am also inviting and!
urging the trustees to attend this!
meeting, and I have inviled the sen-!
ator and representatives in the legis- \
lature from this county to meet with j
us, and I have urged all of them to j
make an effori to be present. Mr. D.;

we can, and ho will remain over forj
the meeting on Saturday, and he j
wants to discuss school finances, and;
that makes it very important that the j
teachers and trustees and members of j
the legislature attend. This is a very;
vital subject at present, and the prob-j
lem must be solved, and the legislature
is the one to solve it, and we
want to give the members all the information
that we can so that they
;r.ay know just how the matter
stands. We must have more money!

schools on the basis we have ceenj
running, and all we ask is for the legislature
to furnish the money to carry
out its own acts or repeal them so
that thl trustees may know what they
are doing when they elect teachers. I j

any backward step in the matter of;
educaion at this time,-and so we wantj
to tell the legislature just where we i
are at and then we want the members j
to provide the means. Let us ail j
come out with a receptive mind and
determined to solve the problem so
that Ihe children may not suffer ^t
our hands. At this meeting I would
bo glad to see any citizen of the county,
man or woman, as they ^re the j
people who are interested in the rural
school problem as well as the
teachers and trustees. Come out andj
take part in the deliberations. We
have a fine auditorium in the high
school building and can seat comfortably
several hundred people, and
we will be pleased to see the auditofin
We are arranging to observe National
Education week in this county,
December 3-9 inclusive. The pastors
of the various churches in the county
are requested to preach a sermon on
education on Sunday, December 3,
and a program has been arranged
for each day during the school week,
and on Saturday we hope to arrange
one or two rallies in the county
where education will be the topic for
discussion. The purpose is to arouse
an interest in education and especially
to improve conditions in our rural
schools. To make the people of the
rural districts see the importance and
*vhe neefs^t- of these children
an e-qr.:;i with the other
children of the county. I hope we
may be able to get the schedule arranged
in time for publication in the
next p:2p=r, and also that The Observed
may publish it. On Tuesday,

day, the local pest of the American
legion has agreed to take charge Oxj
the program and furnish some one or
more to go to each school und present
a flag and make short talks on
the flag. The personnel and schedule
for this day will be arranged at
once. I have promised the legion
that the trustees would furnish th(*
flag pole 2nd that the teachers would
arrange for seme one to accept the
flag in a short talk. I hope the trustees
will see to it that the pole is
ready, and that the teachers will
provide some one. from the siudent
body preferably, to accept the fla;?.
We want all of us to cooperate and
make this week memorable in the j
educational historv in t.h:R MimM- i
We are hoping to have a committee j
visit every school every day. during i
the week, and we want to see some j
of the pitrons of the school, all of j
them in fact, at the school when the
visitors arrive so thit the visitors'
may know that the patrons knowj
where the school house is. You will #
recall that last year we made a visit
to every school in the county in one
day, and the visit did a lot of good in
arousing an interest in tho community
in the school. The visit will not
last more than thirty minutes, and
the schedule will be printed so that
you may not have to lose much time
in meeting the visitors, and I am
sure if these men and women who
will visit your school during the week
can have sufficient interest to take
of their rtime to pay you a visit in
the interest of your boys and girls,
that you will be willing to take the
time to meet them and let them
know that you too are interested in

I con* J I have asked every
teacher or principal of every school,
so far as I have been able, to write
me a short history of the school,
showing mainly the progress and j
growth of the school in their commu-j
nity for the last dozen years at least, i
and I hope they will comply with this'
request. As education week is mainly
to arouse an interest in the rural
ihjs PfTt.'nn of the oaner will
have in mind mainly the rural schools!
also, and I am very anxious to have a I
word from each school. The time is
f^hort and it will take some hurtling
to get up these articles, and also get
out the paper with our limited force,
but we will do the best we can. If
you are going to write the story
please send it in at once, because wehave
to begin printing this week in
order to publish on time. We would
like to (have an article from each
school and would like to have the
copy now. Give 'is your support and
encouragement in this effort to help
Last Wednesday I made a visit to
the school^ at Independence or Reederville.
This school is getting along
fine and Miss Richey ar.d Miss Mann
the doing splendid work here. In going
over I made a brief stop at Jala-|
pa. I drove by the Bush River negro j
school where the district the past!
summer put up a new building. The
negroes asked me to come out. The j
teacher at this school, Minnie Grigs-j
by, is a good teacher and she is also j
a good worker and deos no? pack any
foolishness into the heads of the
children. They are raising money to
furnish the class room and have been
getting along fine fcr these times, j
Coming back I spent some time with;
Misses Monts and Livingston at the]
Bush River school. These young la-J
dies taught this school last year and;
y 1 1 1 ?^/l I
they are capaDie Lsacnei'i miu
workers and everything seems to be j
getting along nicely out here. I also
stopped to see the ' Tranwo~a
school with Miss Nancy Werts as
teacher. They have only one teacher
again this year ,ar.d Miss Nancy is
doing some good and efficient work
for the children here and the school
is getting along nicely. On Friday I
went over to Whitmire with a committee
of ladies who are working up
the education edition of The Herald
and News, and Mrs. J. E. Summer
drove her car and I must say she is
the kind of driver 1 like to have at
the wheel when I am riding in the
rear seat. She is careful and handles
her car beautifully. Mrs. R. H.
Wright and Mrs. Thad McCrackin
and Mrs. Claude Sanders were in the
party. They saw the merchants and
all of them responded beautifully to
the request for ads in the education
edition, and it was just as I expected,
Whitmire always does things jnd
does them right now. I made a brief
stop at Mollohon "school, taught this
year by Mrs. T. J. Abrams. A great
manv of the children of the commu
nity are not yet in - school evidently,
because the enrolment this year is
only about 13 up to this time and
last yc-ir there were more than twenty.
While at Whitmire I visited some
of the rooms in the school. There is
a fine school here now. They have
twelve teachers and something over
400 hundred children. Ten years ago
there were two teachers and not
more than forty or fifty children.
Great growth and progress in this
school in the decade.
