TO HOLD A
Tazewell Teachers Discuss Methods of Hold?
ing a School Fair Next Fall In Connec?
tion With CounlY Fair.
The Tazewell Teachers' Association
met at Richlands for a two-days session
on last Friday mornirjjr. Devotional
services were led by Rev. F. M. Buhr
man, pastor of tbe Kichlands Methodist
church. After roll call the remainder
of the morning session was taken ud in
listening to the reports of Misses Lou
Coulling, Brenda Wright and Lottie M.
Evans, the delegates from this county
to the meeting of the Stnte Teachers'
Association held in Richmond last
I In tbe afternoon on Fri-iay, after dis?
posing of the miscellaneous business,
the questions of attendance, securing
and maintaining school libraries were
discussed by the entire association. Aft
? er this the association resolved itself
I into three sections, to corn?ider from the
i standpoint of tbe high, grammar and
i primary schools, the questions of man
' ual training, language work, pupils that
' fail, and the inadequate preparation of
grammar grade pupils for the high
At the Saturday morning session the
; entire association considered the ques
| tion of a school fair in connection with
'i the county schools. The value, method
and what it should be to the county,
were fully discussed; and gome of the
teachers who have had experience with
the holding of school fair.-? gave the as?
sociation some valuable pointers as to
how a fair should be conducted and i's
value to the community. It was de?
cidid to arrange for the CO operation of
the County Fair Association in the
work, and if the dates could be so ar?
ranged, to hold the two events at the
same time this fall, as this would be
the best means of letting the people
throughout the county know and under?
stand the work which the schools are
doing, more especially toward improv?
ing the agricultural conditions of our
county. The following committees were
appointed to arrange for the fair:
To meet with the executive commit?
tee of the County Fair Association?W.
Archie Thompson, J. B. Crabtree and
Henry S. Bowen.
To arrange the program?Misses !..
M. Evans, Alleyn Conn, Lottie MePher
son and Prof. W. W. Carson.
The attendance at this meeting of the
association was large, considering the
nearness of the holidays; :ind diecussion
of the various topic? w. re conducted
with a vim and vigor that presages well
for the future of Tazewell's schools.
The movement to hold a fair in con?
nection with the county fair is a good
one, and should meet the approval and
encouragement of this en ire communi?
ty; and, it will, without question, have
the hearty co operation of those con?
nected with the County Fair Associa?
tion. In fact, some effort to interest
the children has already been made by
the Fair Association, and they also have
had in view the extending of their ef?
forts so as to attract the attention and
enlist tbe aid of the sen .ol children at
the coming fair; so, now, with the
school board and Fair Ass.?iation work?
ing together in harmony for the same
end, a creditable exhibition of the work
of the children should be seen at the
fair next fall.
Miss Knappenberger Married.
