Remember county Institute
May 115th. The law makes it
the duty of teachers to attend
these institutes as far as practi
cable. o
Next month the census must
be taken. We want to see every
scholastic in Randall county
enumerated. We should not
fall under 400 pupils this year,
and we expect a few more than
that. The enrollment last year
was 373.
Randall county will have no
excuse for employing incompe
tent teachers. Quite a number of
letters come to the superintend
ents office each month from
competent teachers larther east,
inquiring about schools. Let
us employ home teachers if we
can get competent ones but if
not let us get them elsewhere.

pupils were quiet and orderly.
