An early morning meeting of the

day for the purpose of taking up
business relating to the track meet
to be held here Friday and which
time the local students will go against
the Pearson academy team. The
meeting was presided over by Arthur

The track meet Is to be held at
the Frazler race track on Tutullla

other hand have defrayed all student
expenses by money received from
student enterprises. This being the

the stage to come from the Inside to
help him. A man climber out, and
