I palatka Bally Stema Thursday MorninSf FALL TERM OF THE CRESCENT CITY SCHOOL OPENS NEXT MONDAY Special to Ike Kevrn Crescent City, Sept. 21. The fall terms of the Crescent City school will begin next Monday, the 26th. It is hoped that all pupils will begin work on the opening day and that no time will be lost on account of delays or for any other cause that can be prevented. The public schools are growing much faster than Crescent City. One of the reasons is that the school dis trict has been enlarged twice dur ing the past two years. Another rea son is found in the good name of the schools. And still another is the fact that surrounding towns not in the school district desire to send their children here. The coming year there will be more pupils, more teachers, and more rooms than ever before. During the summer an addition has been made affording two more rooms on the old level and also two rooms in the base ment. The trustees want to make manual training and domestic science more effective than ever. New fur niture has been provided for the ad ded rooms, with chairs, desks, black boards and other necessary articles, yith folding doors on two sides, the auditorium will be found very much larger than when the schools closed. The teaching staff will number ten with Principal Wheatly at the head. Miss Ethel L. Crawford will be assistant principal as for the past two years. Mrs. Jay Hobbs, Miss Mattie D. Wilie, Miss Opal Futch and Miss Myrtle Herlong will all be found in their former places. There will be four new teachers: Miss Car delle Williams, who graduated in June from the Woman's College of Delaware; Miss Nina Smoak, a gradu ate of the Crescent City schools who has attended the Woman's Callege of Delaware and the summer school at Tallahassee, in the latter of which she passed a creditable examination, and Miss Myrtle A. Moore who has been a successful teacher in North Carolina The school will be so for tunate as to have for its instructor in music, Miss Katherine A. Craw ford, a young woman who has made a most excellent record at some of the larger institutions. The school car will make two trips each morning and afternoon as last year. It wlil be in charge of WillardWarner. The first trip in the morning will be made north of Crescent City, the car leaving the garage at 7 o'clock. The time for the car to make the several stopping places will be the same as formerly Parents are ' expected to have the children ready when the car arrives fls it cannot wait, owing the the great distance that must be covered. The second trip will take in the run south of Crescent City, and barring breakdows the car will be on time at all calling places. The car with pupils from George town Kinl Fruitland will ive tha same service as last year but more pupils are expected.
