Henry A. Wallace asking that
he do what he can toward raising the
prices of flue-cured tobacco sold on
the N. C. markets, stating that present
prices are not in keeping with
prices of other commodities and will
not give the growers the buying power
desired and needed to improve business.
Prices on the markets that

plan for two or three weeks and children
of the State will all be supplied
within the next few weeks. All, or

to be running before the end of the

tun that much longer in the spring,
most of them ending the school year

Bethel High School
Has a Good Opening
Bethel High School opened August!
29th with an enrollment of 68 high |
school students and 130 in the grades. 1
So far, the average is sufficiently
large to secure another teacher. The
people are looking forward toward
the erection of a new school building
which is so badly needed.
The school spirit among both the
students and patrons, so far seems to)
be splendid. So far as is possible, thel
honor system is being adopted among ..
tile high school students. While it is |
assumed that the students will do
good work in their text books, the
main thing that is stressed under this
system is purely and simply "good
behavior." Those who shall be eligible
to get on the honor roll at the
end of each month and whose names
shall be published will be divided into
two cIhsscs. First, those who measure
up to the standard, both in their
studies and in their conduct. Second,
those who make an honest effort in
their studies and may not be able to
make the grades, but who do make
good in deportment.
Critics will be appointed from
among the high school students to
report at chapel each Friday such
tilings as are thought to be helpful
to the school.
Efforts are going to be made to
secure playground equipment so that
every child in school will have an
opportunity to play at the recesses
and at the neon hour.
At a later date the Newspaper Club
and Literary Society will be organized.
