A,PICICENS (COUNTY MAN COMES
HOME TO WORK.
Oolenoy, July 11.--Of peculiar in
terest to the people of this county
and of general interest will be the
announcement that A. B. Fortner, a
Pickenscounty man, has returned
home and will work here for the
next year. For something like bsn
years, during which time he has been
in college or engaged in school work,
he has been absent from his native
county. He has accepted the prin
cipalship of the Oolenoy High school.
The ability of this school to secure
the service of this man is regarded
by those who are in position to know
his true worth as a worker, as a
builder and as an educator, as a lit
tle less than a wonder. It was due
only to a rare coincidenc2 and to the
prompt and determined action of the
board of trustees.
"Truth is stranger than fiction."
Professor Fortner is a definite, con
cret3 example of the so-called self
made, the self-educated and the self
reliant man. Having been born and
reared in the PleasantGrove section
of the county, his means and early
educational advantages were natur
ally meager. But he possessed that
dauntless courage and enthusiasm
for a better training, a higher sphere
of usefulness. Thus his obstacles
only served as stepping stones. He
was among the first students of Fur
man Fitting School. On finishing
that course he entered the Univer
sity. His extraordinary ability as a
student enabled him to graduate here
three years later, obtaining an A. B.
degree. Later, by the aid of teach
ing and valuable scholarships h^ was
awarded an A. M. degree by the Uni
versity of Chicago.
During 1918-19 he served as prin
cipal of Mlonongah High School,
Molnongah, W. Va. For the past
two years he has served on the staff
of mathematics of the Charleston
High School for boys. lie was se
elected for another year. Charles
ton boasts of one of the largest high
schools in the entire South. The
fact that his work has stood the te st
at that place is suflicient recommen
Oolenoy and her adjoining com
munities are to be most heartily con
gratulated upon her prospects for a
"Greater Oolnoy" under the lead
ership of Professor Fortner.
SUCCESSFUL PLAY AT OOLE
The play, "Always in Trouble," at
the school building here on Saturday
night, July 2, made a decided hit.
From start to finish the audien.ce was
held spellbound in interest. "The
best comedy ever given here" wvas
the sentiment. "Your entertainment
could do credit to a much larger
place," was a remark made by sev
eral visitors. It is not definitely
announced yet, but it is very likely
that the play will lbe rep~eatedl either
here or to some niearby laics from
w'hich aln invitation has been extend
