October offer is a good one and one
wvhich every citizen of Pickens coun
ty should' take advantage of.

ment for two years subscription.

LOCAL'SCHOOL IMPROVEMENTb
Pickens School Building Doubled In
Size This Year.
Last year the patrons of the Pick
ens High Schodl came face to face
with their schcol problem, met ii
fairly, and as was expected did them
selves proud. As a result of a $12,
000.00 bond issue being floated the
congested conditions that existed in
th school have been wiped away and
become past history. Today all faces
are turned to the future and the pros
peet is bright.
An addition has -been built to the
old builiding that makes the high
school a credit not only to the town
and county of Pickens, but to the
State as well. This addition consists
of six class rooms and a spacious
auditorium with a seating capacity
of about 500. Water and sewerage
have been installed, which makes the
sanitary conditions 100 per cent bet
ter. About one acre of land has
been purchased for additional play
ground, which grct vly helps this
phase of the schoel work. With the
playground space now owned by the
scho-cl district a splendid athleti
field can be had sufficiently large
for a track meet or a football fiell,
and with the material that is at
present in the high shocl there is
no reason why the peo'Plc of P:ck
ens ;hculd not see someu very inter
esting athletic sports.
One of the main factors requiring
'tne enlarging of the Pickens school
is the' influx of outside school chil
dren. Last year there wei e approx
imatcly 40 country children taking
advantage of the Pickens school.
while this number has about doubled
for this year. This is very encour
aging, for with the influx of these
children comes their parents with
the'r produce and trade. So the mu
toal bentfit that is derived from this
condition, is most satisfactory.
The standard of the school has
been raistd. A scientific and clarsi
cil coulse of stu(dy is cIfer-el that i.
55 g(e(l as en Le found in th,
State. Next year domestic scienctI
and agriculture will probably be ad
ded, thereby strengthening the
course of study still more. At pres
ent when a child fin'slhes the Pich
ens high school he is emls itled to a
State certificate to teach. provided he
attends a sutmm(.r school of six
weeks.
The school this year is- under the
management of Supt. F. W. Simpson.
He is a man thor oughly familiar
with schocl work, and with his com
ptent corps of teachers this promi
ses to be the best year in the history
of the Pickens High School.
The town is indeed awake on the
school question and is requiring one
of the best schools possible. A
parent-teachet asseciation has been
organized. and the ladies of the town
are backing the teachers in every
way possible. They arc to be con
gratulated on this progi 'tss:ve step.
The credit for the building of the
addition and other substantial im
provements, at so reasonable a price,
is largely due to the splendid man
agement of the Chairman of the
Board of Trustees, Mr. W. L. Ma
theny, who was ably ass'sted by Mr.
R. E. Yongue, another member of
the board. Mr. Yongue being a con
tractor saved for the school the usual
contractor's profit. Mr. Matheney
and Mr. Yongue are to be congratu
lated.
What wve have just accomplished
means a solid fo'undation for further
dlcyclop~ment. In spite of hard times,
the work of the school cannort be
curtailed with wisdom and sa,fety.
Public education in all Its forms is
one of the greatest needls of Pick
ens. Out' boys andl girls ar'e our
greatest joy and our greatest asset.
They are worthy of the best and we
cannot afford to give them less.
