National Corn Imposition School
A great deal has been said and
written regarding the National Corn
Exposition School for boys to be held
in connection with the National Corn
Exposition. Columbia, S. C. January
28..February sth, 1912, but there are
probably many people who are not
familiar with the details.
The first Question to consider is
what is this school to be? It is to
be a source of Information and inspir?
ation and at the same time an OUttlfg
for the prise winning boys of the
Boya' Corn Club of the entire South.
An effort is b. ing made to have every
county in each Southern State send
the two boys making the best rec
ords. These will be properly cared
for and well supervised in Columbia.
Bach day they will be divided Into
|sK|uadi ami given Instruction by the
experts in charge of the exhibits from
the different States. A pleasure trip
lu Charleston and a cruise around the
p< Int? of interest at the city "has been
planned, thus giving the boya an op?
portunity to see the historic place. At
the elOSe of the weeks SChOOl, the
boys will be given diplomas or cer?
tificate s shov '.ng that each boy has
taken the work prescribed. I ?n the
last night of the school, the city of
Columbia will uive a banquet to all
the boys attending, where the toast
master w ill be the boy holding the la st
let ord in the entire South. Here
they will have at. opportunity to meet
boys from ail the Southern states and
many of the Sorthern as well. They
will study the exhibits of all the
states represented, thus getting direct
Information as to the products of
these states. The problems being
worked out by different Experir.u it
Stations will lie studied ami the Im?
portance of each problem stressed.
These are only a ver> few of the
things tlie boys will gel from this
school 'I'he inspiration given the
hoys lure will be worth fully is much
as a year's work in the ordinary
