THE SCHOOL TROUBLE
ON GREENVILLE LINE
Article** Appearing in Greenville
News Concerning Effort to Incorpor?
ate Fart of Danklin Township Into
Sullivan School District.
The following two articles appeared
in the Greenville News last week. The
first one appeared Tuesday and the
second one Saturday. As they are of
considerable interest to a number of
people In this county, the Advertiser
reproduces them in full.
In Tuesday's Issue:
Certain residents of the lower sec
tion of Greenville county, in Colum
bia school district, einbrachte tbe
lower point of Dunklin Township to
bo more exact, are comddorably
wrought up just now because of the
efforts of certain Laurcns county par-;
ties to Induce the Greenbille County >
Hoard of Education to warrant the in-!
corporation of a strip of Danklin
Township into a Laurens county
The Hoard of Trustees of Sullivan
school district, Laurens county, are
desirous of establishing a high school I
Jit Princeton. Some live residents of
Columbia school district wish to throw
a section of the district into Laurens I
district, and thus secure the benefits
of the high school it is proposed to!
establish at Princeton. The Sullivan |
school district has not unite enough i
square mileage to secure the high
school at Princeton, so the trustees Of
the Lalrens county district are quite
anxious for the annexation of the strip
of Danklin Township.
With the end in view of making the
Change, the Hoard of Trustees of Sul
livan school (listriit. with the consent
of County Superintendent of Educa
tion James It. Davis, have had a sur
vey, of Columbia school district made.
The plat of the district shows that it
contains twelve and one-eighth square
The law requires a school district
to have an area of at least nine square
miles. Since the area of Columbia
school district is 12 2-8 square miles,
the Board of Trustees of the Laurens
county district wish to annex :! I-S
square miles of the Danklin Township
district, leaving the required amount
for Columbia district.
The plal made by the surveyor was
placed in the hands of County Super
intendent Davis yesterday morning.
On Wednesday the Greenville County
Hoard of Education will meet in this
city and consider the reouest of the
I.aureus county school officials.
Several residents of Dunklin town
ship, patrons of the schools in the
Columbia district, came to Greenville
yosterduj to consult Superintendent
Davis in regard to the petition of the
Laurens county school district otli
cials. Thoso who came to see Sup
erintendent Davis yesterday are bit
terly opposed to the annexation of
any portion of Dunklin Township by
tin' Laurens county school district,
and their objections are not without
There .ire i ,vo si hools in Columbia
school district, Columbia school and:
Flui Koch school. The former is sit
uated nonr the county line, while the
biter js at the upper houndry of '.he;
district. In case the trip of Danklin
township were Incorporated in the
Laurens county district, Columbia
school house would sit within a few'
yhrds of the line. This would, it is
.? Ii. put this school out of commis
sion end would necossltato the pur-;
chasing of a lot and the removal of
the school to some poinl near Hie;
center of the re-formed district.
While the residents or Columbia
school dlstrici are heartily in favor
of high schools, and would delight in
< :,:.? a high school established lit j
Princeton, just across the Greonvllle-'
Lnurens county line, tiny do not feel
that Columbia district should be les
sened in area and the expeuso of re
moving Columbia school house thrust
upon the residents of thai district.
From all indications, the petition of
the Hoard of Trustees of the LUUI'OIJS I
county school district will be turned
down, it is understood that County
Superintendent of Education James P.
Davis is opposed to the strip being cut
off Columbia school district.
As is generally known, certain por
tions of Grotnvillo COUIll.V are now In
corporated in school districts of oth
er counties. Sucll is tin case at
Greer, Piedmont and Fountain Inn.
When- portions of two counties, arc
incorporated in one BChool district
the Hoards of Education of the two
counties have joint control of the1
The question confronting the
Greenville County Hoard of Education
is rather a porpleXlng one. There are
really two sides to the question and
good sides at that. Residents of Sul
livan school disl ret. Laurens county. ?
desire a high school at Princeton, hut
haven't sufficient area in tin- Laurens
county district to warrant it Hy an
nexing :! I-S square miles of Danklin
Township they can get the necessary
area. Certain residents of lower
Dunklin Township desire tbe advan
tages of a high school, and h;:;.- ;"> op
portunity of getting one at Princeton,'
by incorporating a portion o? Dunklin
township into the Laurens county dis
Residents of the upper section of the
Dunklin township school district do
not wish the change to be made he
cause It will necessitate the removal
of one of the two schools in the Co
lumbia district, and will call for the
expenditure of a considerable sum of
money in purchasing a new slto and
erecting a new school house.
The outcome of the situation Will
b<' watched with a great deal of In
terest in thai section of the county
and In the section of Laurens coun
In Saturday's Issue:
At a meeting of the Hoard of Edu
cation of Greenville county held yes
terday morning In the office of Conn
tv Superintendent of Education .las
B. Davis the petition or the Hoard
of Trusteos of Sullivan school dis
trict, Laurens county, for a section
of Columbia school district. Creon
villa county, to be annered to the for
mer district, In onler that sulllclcnt
area might be obtained for the es
tablishnieiit of a high school at Prince
ton, was turned down.
Several days ago it was stated In
, The News that Citizens of this par
ticular school district, which is in
the lower sectio.i of Lhuiklin Town
Bhip, were considerably wrought-up
because of iiie efforts oi tu?' Laurens
county Superintendent of Education
j and the trustees of Sullivan school
district to induce .he Greenville coun
' ty Hoard of Education to annex three
j and one-eighth Miliare miles of terri
' lory in Columbia district to the form
er district. At that time it was
thought that the matter under discus
sion was of incrt-st to only those res
idents of Dunklln Township affected,
as well as those in Sullivan school lis
trift in LaurenS county. It has since
come to light, however that even resi
dents of the city were interested In
this matter. On the morning of the
publication of the news story about
the school districts matter a resident
of the city who owns considerable
property in Dunklin Township read
the story in The Newa and at once
hied himself to the office of the Coun
ty Superintendent ol Education, where
tlie entered the nuts; strenuous objec
tion to the Columbia school district
being altered. The public in general
lias manifested much interest in the
situation, and will read with interest
the outcome of the affair.
The three members of the County
Hoard of Education. Messrs. H. B.
Dom I nick of Fountain Inn, L. E. (Mul
ders of Mnuldin and superintendent of
Education .1 tunes B. Davis of Green
ville, did not take long to decide the
question of allowing the Laurens
county school district to appropriate
a portion of the Dunklin Township
school district. After it short discus
sion of the matter the board voted
to decline the petition, and Superin
tendent of Education Davisvls immed
iately wrote to the Superintendent of
Education of Luurens county. Mr.
Qeorge L. Pitts, and notified him of
the action taken by the Greenville
Columbia school district. In Dunk
lin Township, measures 12 1-S miles
in area. Tin1 law requires a school
district to measure pt least square
miles in area. The Board of Trus
tees of Sullivan s< liool district, just
across the county line, wished to es
tablish a high school at Princeton,
und not having Blllllclent area in that
particular district to warrant the es
tablishment of a'hlgh school, con
ceived the idea of i>< titloning the
Greenville county Hoard ol Education
to annex :i i-s sqnun miles <>t Colum
bia school district to the Laurens dis
trict, this leaving tin required U miles
in the Dunklin Township residents of
Columba district lolned the petl
The petition was turned down yes
Lerdny by the County Dni.nl of Edu
cation for several reasons, one of the
most plausible being HS was stated by
a member of (he board, the simple
reason that Greenvlllt county could
not afford to sacrHirt hei own sshool
interests in that section of the county
