Governor and Mrs. l^wrence W.
Cramer, members of the Gover
nor's staff, Chairman Lionel Ro
berts of the Municipal Commit-
, tee and other prominent citizens.
,''This is Mr. Justice Hascie* de-
, lared (|ovemor Cramer in his
introduction. “I’m glild to be
here. Governor,” replied Judge
I The~appointeinent by President
i'Roesevelt of Judge Hastie to
head the Virgin Islands Judiciary
is a precedent of great social
significance to ttei inhabitant*! of
the -Virgin Islands. A Negro has
nevef before occupied the offico.
It was stated here that as ninety-
two per cent of the population
Negroes-, or of Negro descent,
the appointment holds up to the
youth a great prouiise of reward
Judge Hkstie has already favo
rably mipressed many of the lead
ing citizWs. As he quietly as
sumed onice a few persons who
were opposed to his confirmation
by the Senate were ready to ad
mit that they had never been ap-.

Knoxville, Tenn., will hav» the
privilege of attending one of the
largest and finest junior high
schools^in - the city whien the
doors of the Mechanicsville
Junior Hig^ School are j^open%d
for- its first classes next Sept.
The new school is situiited on
College street, one block nortn
of the main campus of Knoxville
College, on ground which was
formerly a part of tRe^ college
campus. The board of Trustees
of the^ coUe^ donated two aeres.
of land to the city for this btrild-
ing. Added acreage for athletic
fieU and playground is available
and in All probability the city
will purchjase more ^ound by
way of enlarging th« school site.
^ As one of several new build
ings in the city’s school program
this new junior highi was built to
relieve congestion at Austin, the
local high sdhool. Built at a «ost
of $141,0OO7^the new school is
