.4DDITIONAL STATE AID FOR
Additional ytat. I has been se
cured from the .te Department
of Education in the sum of $2961.00
to be applied to the school districEs
who claim State Aid under the law
guaranteeing seven 'months school.

Legislature failed to appropriate the
amount guaranteed to the. schools
last year, causing most all schools
to 'have a deficit at the end of tlt
last scholastic year. This aid has
been made possible by the Budget
Commission through a transfer of
$3500 from the unexpended rural
graded school balance and $51,636
unexpended term extension balance.
A list of the schools receiving
this aid are as follows:

TO FORM HUNTERjS CLUB
Will Stock Mcurtains on Brevard
HidIhways With Turkeys
Mir. L. B. O'Dell, ejdjgiapt':Nr
den of Piekens county, is promoting
a hunter's club that should prove a
fine thing for lover's of this sport
throughout this section. Mr. O'Dell':
idea is to stock the mountains above
Pickens w'th turkeys. and then allow
members of the club to hunt these
turkeys dinin the season. So far
he is meetin with hearty co-opera -
Mir. Wade Chastain, who controls
some 64.000 acres of land in the
northern part of the county, and
Mr. WV. R. Pi ice, wvho owvns some 2.
t;00 acr'es, and ethei s have agreed
to give the use of their land and
protect the game that is turned out
until the time is rp for hunting.
Mr. O'Dell has already received
the promise cf about~ forty turkeys.
The membership fee of this club
will be ene turkey, or. the price of
a turkey. There wo'uld 1e no limit
to the number of me'mbers, the more
mcmbers the more turkeys, although
a limit would be plaed~ on the nunm
ber of turkeys each member could
kill during the season.
The bus'iess men of Anderson
andl other cities, who are innterested
in making the ncew Brevard highway
the playground of South Carolina,
will be asked to co-opeiate and Mr.
O'D'ell believes that the mountains
of this sectioni can be stocked with
hundreds and hundreds of turkeys in
a short timie.
If you are interested i nthe hunt
ing club notify Mr. O'Dell.
