Tubb said here Monday that children becoming six years of age on or before Jan. 1, 1958 will be eligible to en ter school for the coming term. He said that there has been some apprehension expressed by parents and a misunder standing of terms of the law. The word “on” he said, is very important in that a child who becomes six years old on Jan. 1, and before midnight of that date, is eligible. He quotes Chapter 24, Sec tion 3 of the laws of the Extra ordinary session of the legisla ture of 1953 in support of his decree: “No child shall be enrolled or admitted to any school which is a part oJ "’•ee pub lic school 'system uring any schol year unless such child will reach his sixth birthday on or before Jan. 1, of said school year.” Thousands Enjoy 19th Annual City Wide, Free Kiddie Picnic Sponsored By Paper and Cooperating Merchants, Friends JACKSON, Miss. — This pic- j ture shows just a few of the estimated 3,000 children of all ages who attended the 19th Annual Mississippi Enterprise Free City-Wide Kiddie Picnic, given at College Park, Mon day, August 26.

Harvey JACKSON, Miss. — Through its representative, Mrs. Ro land Evans Powell, PET MILK donated 2,000 caps, to be dis tributed among the estimated 3,000 children of all ages who attended the 19th Annual Mis sissippi Enterprise Free City Wide Kiddie Picnic, held at College Park, Monday, August 26. Mrs. Powell, who has spent several months in Jackson, making a house-to-house sur vey, distributing PET MILK and building good-will for her company, was present at the picnic and was very enthuas tically received by the young people who literally ‘fought’ for one of the colorful and at tractive, over-sea type caps that bore the name of PET MILK. The donation of the Pel Milk Caps to the Free City Wide Picnic is just one of the many services that has beer rendered the public for tht company by Mrs. Powell sinc€ she came to Jackson.

Sims of the African Methodist Episcopal Church has been restored to active duty. He has been as signed to the 16th Episcopal I District which includes the ‘ East Indies and South Amer ica. The assignment was made at a special meeting of the Bishop’s Council in Washing ton, D. C., over which Bishop ; Wright, presided. The restoration of Bishop S Sims, w'ho was suspended from 1 office 10 years ago, was an other chapter in a long and dramatic struggle, none the less dramatic because it has been under cover for the most part. When Bishop Sims was banned from the Council, it is said the chief protagonist was Bishop D. Ward Nichols ( who assumed charge over his j ! district. Bishop Sims had been ; known as the “strong man” ; of the church. The title was ; | transferred to Bishop Nichols ; | who became the strong leader | who had to be consulted be- j fore any major move. Behind the facade where the Bishops dwell however is the new body which has assumed an important place in the denomination, the Brotherhood which set up a strict budget under which the church and the Bishops are operating. This has been hailed as an effective in novation in the church, one which has controlled the power which had gradually accrued to the Bishops. The espousal of Bishop Sims, cause and the dethronement of Bishop Nichols are said to be due in large part to the influence of the Brotherhood.
