It is the easiest kind of a thing to be abusive, we have known that kind of thins;. This form of defense is used when its author has nothing better to say or wishes to avoid the issue at stake. Probably both reasons operate in the case be fore us. Professor Sidney G. says much where he is directly interested (our references to the State Normal) and nothing about the greater interest the depriving of from 20 to 30 ter cent of the children of the State of their schools. This is unbelievable: we have it from the mouth of one of the faculty of the State Normal, of Johnson City, and that ought to make it go with Sidney. It was also said that there would go up a great howl about it, and we suppose this is the first ululation. He makes no mention of the worth- lessness of the high school diplomas. Why not take up the main issues and let his vulgar attacks on this writer go? "Ignorant," oh, yes, we can prove that by twenty men and four women on any corner we may chance to meet, and this is why we are so concerned about the schools for our children we are all ignorant enufT. 'A teacher who knows little can teach a child who knows nothing at all" we note your plavon words and also note that you make no just reply, or one (we being so ignorant) we do not comprehend. . There is something coming to these teachers of "low standing," and something is due these little children who know little except to climb wearily up the hill of science led by the teacher who 'nows enuff to -go ahead of them. Sidney has an exalted idea of the knowledge of little children, and we are willing to admit that Greene coun- ;y children are unevcelled if not un equalled by those of any other coun ty in the State, but that they know "nearly" as much as the "low stand ing" teachers aspiring to teach them is as incorrect as to say that the child ren know "nothing at all." We are not, nor have not, advo cated teachers of "low standing," but Ve, in the name of the people and their "smart" children, demand schools where they may inform them ielves, and we are and shall ever op pose a plan that robs 20 to 30 per cent of them of a chance to go to school. eW are opposed to that "lob by" of High brows called a State Teachers' Association diekerimr with - r the legislature and mixing up mat- ;ers in this fashion. We are glad to announce that since writing our former article our wor thy county superintendent, Prof. J. N. Pierce. -(and thtre i rm ;n the State an officer who is ever on the alert to see after the interest of the children) has been in conference with the state officials at Nashville and tells us that teachers will be li- j censed and all the schools will start j on time.

While enlistment)! tnr --w J V (tlltll of the army are accepted, men are wanted particularly for the Seennd Feld Artillery and Fifth Infantry which recently returned from the Panama Canal Zone while the 2nd Aixinery just returned from six months with the A. E. F. On account of certain unofficial re ports that the pay of enlisted men of the arm will revert after the present emergency to the pre-war scale, which are incorrect, Lieut. N. P. Hunt of the local recruiting party wishes to announce that the Army appropria tion act approved May 18, 1917 (Bui. 32, W. D., 1917) in so far as it con tinued in force and effect from and after the date of approval of the ap propriation act approved July 11, 1919. Therefore the pay will be on a basis of thirty dollars a month and not re duced as has been unofficially report ed in some places. Ml New Felt Hats Just arrived in all the latest shapes and shades.
