School Trustees Meeting
The trustees meeting held here last
Friday was a complete success in all
respects. The attendance was not as
large as expected, yet was representa
tine, as nearly all the school districts
had representatives present. The
county superintendent called the meet
Ing to order and introduced the Rev.
W. B. Duncan, who opened the meet
Ing with devotional exercises.
MI. S. O. O'Bryan was elected per.
manent chairman for this year and in
organizing the association it was de
cided to hold another convention in
the spring before' the schools close.
Mr. Ellison Capers, a newly appoint
ed member of the county board of ed
ucation,' was present and took a part
in the disciissions. Mr. WV. T. P.
Sprott, president of the County Fair
association, and Mr. P. H. Senn, coun
ty demonstration agent, were present
and explained various matters of in
tom-est of the comning fair. - There wvill
be ten school or community fairs held
in the county and it is expected that
these will be the means of aidling the
larger county fair to be held Novem
ber 7-g, inclusive.
The trustees favored a continuationI
of the annual field (lay events, andl ex
pressed the desire that It be held a
little earlier if possible as some
schools have already closed by the
T1'he usual practice of paying the
teachers the limit that the district is
abhic to pay, regardless of the expe
rience and qlualiflcations of the teach
er, wdts next discussedh. Trustees
shouild have a margin to encourage
capable and cfficient teachers by pay
