NEW CONDITIONS FOR OUR COUNTY HI6H SCHOOL Careful Discipline, Watchful Care and General and Cloe Supervision to Be Maintained. The County Board of Education will i make a very determined effort th year to place Cumberland County High School on a higher and more efrVrtive hatic nf urrrr anH rnnrlnr than In the past, to the end that the attendance may be increased, that the parents over the county may be en couraged to send their boys and girls to the school they are helping to main tain instead of spending more money in helping to maintain another and more distant school. lhat the bchool Board will have the hearty and persistant cooperation of the high school faculty in this effort there is no reason for a shadow of a doubt. Ihe high school taculty have felt this lack of discipline and cn couragmeijt in the past just as fully as'does he Board of Education now. This is the strongest assurance that itheir cooperation will be both earnest and persistant. Sinre the Pnmmprrial lintel nroner ty has been purchased for a dormi tory it is very plain that a closer watch can be kept on, the conduct and movements of the students than in the past, for he teachers will live in the dormitory also and thus be not only better situated for observing the daily conduct of the students but can lend a more hedpful hand to the proper direction of the daily routine of both conduct and study on the part f the pupils. It is , the purpose of the School Board to install something of a mild military discipline in that all students Will be required to have regular Study hours, be in their rooms by a certain time at night, lights out at a certain time and all must' arise at a cerain time and strict punctuality to rnjeals and classes- will be required.

A last, minute rush of students will be sure to render the task of the SchooT Board much more difficult while mak ing it impossible to provide so well for the students as will be possible when the situation is fully understood in advance. ' Every young person who plans to enter school this fall is urged to in vestigate the plans and purposes of the County Board and the available, re sources of the county for serving them before deciding to ge elsewhere. Every citizen of the county owes it to our high school that it shall have his most earnest and hearty support in every way possible. It is hoped our people will fully appreciate this and act acordingly. The School Board fully realizes that without the cooperation and whole-hearted support of the peopie generally, both in sympathy and stn- BIG LAND SUIT DECISION -TOUCHING 2,300 ACRES Land Lays Five Miles South of Cross ville and Represents a very . Large Sum. Within a few days the State Su preme Court has handed down a de cision touching a large body of land that we feel will be of interest to many Chronicle readers. The suit has Kfif-n in the rnnrte fnr several vpars. The outcome and conditions surround ing the land suit are, briefly stated, as follows : The cause of Walling et al. vs. I.antana Pnal Comnanv ft al. which was brought into the Chancery Court at ('rrimville some time aco was de cided in the Supreme Court at Nash ville last Saturday, opinion by Judge McKinney. giving most of the land to the defendants.

There were manv lesral nuestions in volved causing much interest among lawyers and the parties interestea. In the fhanrerv Court the Bill of Wal ing was dismissed as to all the lands he claimed except a strip containing and what is called Entry 445 of 125 acres. The Supreme court affirmed the Chancery Court 2,1 mnHifiprt its decree so as to dis miss the bill also as to said strip leav ing as the recovery 01 waning me so called 125 acres, which is really less than 120 acres. The defendants had been in posses dn.i r.( the land and had oaid taxes on the parts claimed by them for many years, and the said Ziegler et al. claimed also . under an. .independent flrant and had been in possesion and paying taates for many years. v The title 01 waning came-uuw Orayne". who had Ykid 'ho taxes on-said, land aildchad let her claim ' mauy'years'..

To the Business Men for tne FOREST FIRES IN THIS COUNTY THIS YEAR Motion Picture Show to Be Given by State Fire Authorities in Near Future. Dtiring the spring fire season of 1922 there were 36,330 acres of Forest Land and I 1 17 acres of nnen UnA burned over in the nrnt.-rteit Tennessee. The proctected area com prises: 1 the F.ast Tennessee Moun tains along the North Carolina Boun dary; 2The Cumberland Plateau and; 3 The Highland Rim in Lewis. Hick man and Wavne counties : an area r,( over 5,000,000 acres. On this area 100 fires were reported with an estimated destruction of timber, vouuir erowth. cord wood, loirs and improvements amounting to $36,643.00. Messrs. J. T. Ashburn, R. R. Dunbar John C. Jones and A. B. Wyatt, Dis- . J . I . 1 r , . 1 , inn jrairuiiuen, 01 vumneriana county reported 30 fires which burned over 845 acres of virgin timber, 4,252 acres of cut-over land and 240 acres of open land before they were extinguished. 27 of these fires were of unknown origin and three incendiary. They destroyed and injured timber, young growth and urazinK: to the extent of $3,076.00. The annual loss in Tennessee due to forest fires has been estiated to be at least $500,000 in past years. Forest fires destroy timber, game, birds, fish and streams; they injure grazing and the hog range so that at present they do not comnare with the ranee nf years .ago. By keeping fires out o,f ine wouus everyone in a community benefits either directly or indirectly. So, lets all be careful' with file in Cumberland county, so that we have better and more timber, better and ' longer grazing, a better hog range' better soil and more game, birds ana fish.
