219,699 negroes. This was an increase
of '12,925 over the enrollment of the
preceding year, 15,751 being whites

Of the 1903 school districts in the
state 1616 now pay a local school tax
levy, and during the yeal 393 voted
original levies or increased existing
levies. Only four districts, two in Ab

levies. One of the significant move

districts in which cotton tnills are lo
