The high school enrollment on Mon day totalled 00, with prospects of more pupils to come. This is by far the largest- initial enrollment known in the high school. The grammar school enrollment was 271, and while this is not a record, Fred L.

Lewis, after which the work of enrolling the pupils and arranging the schedule was begun and continued throughout the day. v The faculty of the high school con sists of Prcf. J. L.

Alarming Spirit of Unrest Is Seen Among Teachers of the County An alarming spirit of unrest among the teachers in the elementary schools and a desire to change from one school to another was shqjvn in a statement given out yesterday by Miss thel Walker, county superintendent. This is especially true, Miss Walker said, in the one-teacher schools. That this is the cause of much in- fficiency in the schools is undoubted ly true, Miss Walker said, adding that i there seemed to be an erroneous im pression prevalent among teachers ov the reports were correct, a remark able improvement in view of the fact that these reports are an innovation in the schools of the county and the teachers were unacquainted with them.

COMMUNITY BETTERMENT CLUB IS ORGANIZED AT OZONE some other school where sh eis un known and must begin anew to learn the individual characteristics of her pupils. The alarming state of this - unrest is shown in the fact that, out of a total of 49 teachers in one-teacher schools 00 per cent of the teachers are new in their positions. Of the td teachers in two-teacher schools &2IA oer cent are new, while in the company has also applied for a char-, schools employing three or more two vears in a chool a teacher begins between the three churches besides to dread returning there and seeks a small amount which goes to help finish paying for the ball outfit.

Mrs. Lula Cummings and Miss Er mine Miller visited with friends and relatives at Bilbrey and Monterey last week. erage for all the schools in the county is about 01 per ceni. 11 is reauiij seen that such a large per cent of new teachers detracts greatly from the ef ficiency of the teachers. The only remedy for this condition of unrest, Miss Walker stated, lies in the consolidation of the one- and two teacher schools into schools having three or four or more teachers. Miss Walker stated that she re quired all the teachers to send in week ly reports of the average daily at fnHance.
