A statewide drive is now on foot to
banish illiteracy from ,South Caro
The State has appropriated twenty
five thousand dollars for this work to
be used this summer, and teachers are
appealed to undertake the work. Good
pay can be secured for this work by
any teacher who will lend themselves
to the work. Any class may be or
ganized consisting of ten or more stu
dents above fourteen years of age.
The school must run at least four
weeks, and may run not longer than
24 weeks. Teachers, trustees and
others interested ilt this problem
are called on to push the work. Full
information on this movement can be
had by addressing the Illiteracy Com

I make this appeal to the teachers
and trustees throughout the County
to study the problem in your own
community, and if a class can be or
ganized to do it. Writing, reading and
simple easy arithmetic will be the
studies. Illiterates if ;:roperly taught
can soon learn to write their names
and fret a start in easy reading. Is
there not something you can do?
