Price for Next Five Years Fifty Per Cent Below Last Contract The Tennessee Text Book Commis sioners who have been in session in Nashville for the past two weeks have completed the work of selecting the books to be used in the elementary schools for the next five years. As soon as the books were selected the publishers got busy on awarding the contracts to the bidders for the do positories.- J. E.
