DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL
WORKER IN THE CITY
TODAY
TALKS OF FINANCES
With Reference to the State
Aided High Schools of South
Carolina
Mr. W. H. Hand, State superviser
od* high schools, arrived in thc city
last night to confer with the trustees
of Anderson College today.
In conversation with a reporter for
The Intelligencer last night, Mfr.
Hand stated that he ts very heartily
In favor of a bill now befo.o the leg
islature to 'poikui', cities of any size
to have a part of the State fund for
the promotion of high school work.
The present law limits the distribu
tion of this fund to cities of 2,600
persons. tM!r. Hand says that this de
feats the very purpose for which the
high school fund was created. It
means that few towns' or cities of
that size can get 15 pupils for the
high school department and without
this numtber the State will not recog
nize the high school as qualified to
receive financial support.
If the bill before'the legislature
passes, lt will rojean, for Instance,
that the city of Anderson would get
?760-or high achoo! purposes/ This
would be no hardship on any other
community, for the people of the Vu
ral districts may then -send to the
Anderson high school without having
to pay any tuition Charges. On tbc
other hand, under the restrictions
now hopos en hy tb? high ocfa?ols
might get no money ax air under the
population and enrollment proscrip
tions.
Mr. Hand called attention to an
other matter which will be a great
surprise to the readers of The Intel
ligencer, tte states that the city of
Anderson paye to the country sebe?la '
every year over $9,000. Thia is ap
proximately the total amount .provid
ed for the. city schools under the
mill tax, which is to be expended in
the counties in which collected. Mr
Hand says that there has been a mis
taken idea that the country has been
paying tho running expenses of city
schools, but be states that with the
exception of but one or two counties
this is a mistaken idea, for there are
numerous cases which he can cite to
Bhow that tne school taxes paid in
the city are 'used for tho country
schools.
Federal League
