of the prettiest buildings in the city.
Anderson's county board of educa

was called- for the purpose of con

Springs and Mount Airy schools. All
these schools aro located in the same
section and some believe that it would
be a splendid thing for the community
If they should be consolidated. How
ever, on the other hand some of th?
school patrons are opposed to the
plan and it was therefore decided at
yesterday's meeting that an election
would be ordered for the purpose of
giving all the patrons of the three
schools an opportunity to express

Sometime ago orders were issued
to the effect that hereafter the cafes
of the city munt be closed at midnight
each night. A storm of protest was
evoked at the time and Qjts Antonikos,

before members of the council and
convinced them that to issue such an
order was a mistake, and it was then
revoked. The cafes will now remain
