' Parents, I want you to meet the
teachers of your children. Get ac-

Help them by your presence and en-
courage them with words of good
cheer and fellowship. No one aside
from the parent is so closely associat-
ed with the lives of our children as
are teachers. They are with them
«!x hours of each school day. They
itimulate them to endeavor, they
teach lessons of wisdom they urge
I them on to better things.
I Let everyone come and help to
ipa^e this meeting a grand succss.
I yours for educational progress,
S. W. Black.

great anticipation by the faculty and
pupils and the congested condition
experienced at the first few days of
school in some of the rooms would
indicate that it is needed. There are
more families moving to town for the
advantage of the school this year
than ever before.
