EVENTS AT PEARL HIGH
The entire corps of colored teach
ers assembled in the auditorium of
tliis school last Wednesday to extend
greetings and welcome to Prof. H.
Carl Weber, the new superintendent
elect of the city schools of Nashville.
The occasion was a jo.vous one. A
few weeks ago, a similar meeting
was held by the white teachers.
These gatherings are unique and un
precedented. The different Boards
of Education in the past have elected
several superintendents during thei
history of the public schools' of the
city, but never before has any sup
erintendent received such felicita
tions in advance of his taking office.
These meetings bespeak the popu
larity of Prof. Weber with the
teachers and the high esteem in
which he is held by them as an edu
cator. After the preliminary exer
cises, the new superintendent-elect
was introduced. His remarks were
characteristic of the man and show
ed that he had lost none of his old
time ."punch." There is still that
same force and dynamic power In
him which brought the Nashville
public schools to such a high state
of efficiency ten years ago. He is
original; he thinks for himself; ha
does not follow the beaten track;
he makes a path of his own. There
is no doubt that the Board of Edu
cation has acted most wisely in its
selection. 'There was a sentiment of
regret expressed by all the speakers
at the retirement .of Prof. J. J.
Keyes. The schools have made prog
ress under his administration and
several new buildings have been
erected during his term of office. He
leaves the office of superintendent
voluntarily, but will still be connect
