AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF J. S. REED.
In the year 1S9.3 I was bom near the
boundary line of Georgia and Alabama.
At the age of five years my father moved
to Columbus, Georgia. After n“maining
there two yea;is my parents started me to
school. The school not being what they
wished for me. and my older brother to
seek an education, became dissatisfied. My
father was a minister and always wanted
to labor where he thought he could ac
complish the most good, so when I was
seven years old my father decided to move
to a small town where there was a good
school, by name. S .
In this town there was a fine set of peo
ple as well as a tine field for Christian
On February the second I staa-ted to
school with a desire to have an education,
and to keep up with my class.
After being in school four years I en
tered the fourth grade.
By this time my father had built a
Christian Church in our town and had al
so been elected as a member of the Board
of Education. By my father writing to
one of the gi”adnates of Elon College and
putting his name brfore the Boiuid he was
elected to take the work of teaching the
third and fourth grades. He boarded at
our home and took a gi’eat interest in me.
He was the first j>erson who causi d me
to want to ep to college. He told me of
the college in North Camlina where he se
cured his education. I became attached
to him as Wi.dl as to his wf^s of leaching.
The next year 1 began saving my money
for the ])ur)iose of gwng to school at Elon
Colleg’e. Being very indei)endcnt I
thought I would beair my own expenses
through school. My j)arents did as much
as they could to help me in my plans. My
greatest trouble was I didn’t know what
I wanted to prepare myself for.
In the eighth year of my school life I
met with a serious accident wliich caused
me to be in liad health and lose nearly p
V' ar in school. During this time I got
careless and neglected my books.
Of course this threw me behind my old
class-mates, and caused me to feel des]X)n-
deut. As most of boys do. I now lost con
trol of my temper and made my school
days harder faji- mf.
By the help and good w'ill of my old
classmates, however, I succeeded in get
ting through the high school in 1008, I
then secured a position in the mercantile
business, but a few months of confine
ment taught me that this was not a suit
able occu])ation so I turned to farming^
Every day the need of more education
was looking me in the face. At last I
accejted the invitation of the authorities
of Elon to become a member of thie Col
lege and now I am in school enjoying the
fruits of S(‘ed sown long ago.
