THE SCHOOL FAIR
Nearly Three Thousand In
CROSS HILL WON
No Untoward Events Marred the
Pleasures of the Day. Exhibits
more Varied than.Last Year though
the Crowd was Probably Smailler.
An early morning haziness Friday
that at one time threatened to grow
Into a drizzling rain gave way in the
early forenoon to- a delightfully clear
and sunny atmosphere, providing for
the annual county school fair an ideal
spring day. The threatening clouds
of the early morning, however, were
not driven away before they had
caused many, from a fear of a drench
Ing, to give up the idea of attending.
Yet, with these few staying at home,
the general opinion was that nearly
as many school children were present
as were here last year, though it waIs
generally conceded that there were
not as many older people present ats
there were last year. This L; ic
counted for largely by the f-iet that
many farmers desired to make the
best use of the very few recent ideal
days for land preparation and plant
Ing. One who counted the children,
teachers and trustees in the great
parade said there were nearly 2,700
in line, which was a few hundred less
than last year. I-ven with the slight
decrease in numbers, many were
heard to express surprise that so
many were here and that so much in
terest and enthusiasm were taken at
a time when nearly everyone seemed
to think that the country had gone to
the bow-wows. Conceding that the
numbers were leks than last year, the
universal opinion seemed to have
been that the exhibits were better and
that more interest was taken in the
different contests than in previous
fairs, indicating a healthy growth and
spirit in the schools. While it is
hardly a matter of news, it being tak
en for granted, the crowd was an or
derly, well-behaved, well-dressed,
healthy and happy one. No untoward
events marred the pleasures of the
day and everything passed off pleas
antly. 9ne exception to the prevail
ing good order of the day, however,
was the noise made by a small group
in the rear of the school auditorium
during the high school oratorical con
test, in the evening. Considerable crit
icism was heard as to this andl hopo
expressed that it would not be re
Fro:n the spectacular point of view,
the school parade was the crowning
feature of the day. The line was
formed at the graded school building
an( the march Iiade to the publie
square, the clildren marehig four
abreast. Whilie all of the schools in
the parade dleserve credit for their
a ppearance, as all of' thlemi had some
(distinctive feature to praise, the two
schools representing extr'emes in age
comm uanded miost attention. These
were the k indergarten pupiluls of the
Lanureniis mil1, taught buy .\iss Frances
Th'lames, and the night school "boys"
of Youngs township, taught by Miss
WiI Lou Gray andl the various teach
ers of the township. Not content with
nierely marching in the liaradhe, these
enthusiastic night scholars gave full
vent to 'their spirit of youth and viedl
withi the leather-throated youngsters
in cheering anid "rooting" for their
rchiools. Th'le school children were
preceded in line by a brass band andl
the local band of boy scouts under the
command of Mr. JTames Fi. liarney,
assistant Scout Master. I'he l'Intb
stretched from the school building to
