Ten years ago a large number
of our public schools were taught
by poorly educated ineflicinet
teachers, but today we have u
splendcd lot of we.l educated and
efficient teachers.
Why this great change in so
short a spree of time? The an
swer is, our County High school.
Our boys and girls are graduat
ing from this tchool in large
numbers, and most of them are
choosing the profession of teach

of these graduates and ethers
attend the E. T. State Normal,
L. M. University, Carson New

lieve our teachers compare la.- j
vorably with the teachers of
other counties.
