I ttend. This school was loc.ted oqui- a distant from two other little one ident. room schools. I saw a good op portunity to bring abunt a con solidation of the three sn:hools. iiotice and proceeded to bring on ti Se bblish- campaign. P'' The first thing I did was to get 2 i1t15n the sentiment of the pupils for a lb 1 '1l better school; then through th . etober pupils and other means I succeed bi' ed in getting the sentiment of the to of n patrons. I found very little op eevral position in the beginning. We eveisldecided to celebrate Thanksgiv It is that ing Day in order to have some educator come and give a lecture r, the on the consolidation of schools. South- Hon. D. R. Johns mn came and galusa, delivered a good lectir3. Then of t the trustees f thm two room of tmae school ran a petition un-oughhout ib the various communities in favor ibitors of the cnsoldation. Practically e calidi all of the patrons signed tke peti >elieved tion, after which trustees pre seearn- sented the petition to the parish meerous school board. The school board to the took up matters at once and set the time for a special school tax in lists election. ntribu- The good people of the district r went to the polls on Good Friday, l saudri April 2, 1915, and said by their i grea- ballots, ''We are going to have a legreat- new four room school building." Sg iresth I think that the above date should 3plished be considered the most memora ble day ever held in that commu nnection nity, because it was upon this t C Curse date that the good citizens of the hheld in district made it possible to give toto c '!' their childireni a public school edu ii to go cation at home. ii.. Thus my dm..xme have been lr next realized, amid time ideals of the Ltd. and community have been affected.
