The Asheville Citizen had emite a
vrite-up on the possibilities of Polk
county as a sheep raising county.
Some State experts have just made
a survey of the county and say that
as soon as the people wake up to the
advantages possessed by our county
.n that line .we, may expect to see our
mountain sides covered with large
.locks of sheep. We hope to see
.he hastening of that time.
An Intruder on the railroad track
ast week was run over by a train and

away and perhaps buried. 'The" victim

"Vitalizing the Stud of Agricul
ture" is the title of a variable little
pamphlet which has just been issued
.rom the State College. The author
s Prof. C. B. Williams' Dean of Agr
culture' and his purpose is to give
lelpful suggsestions to teachers in
ur elementary scchools who are con
ducting classes in agriculture.
Teachers and any others who desire
copies can get them by writing to the
Registrar's Office at West Raleigh.
More than one Tryonite is, and for
;ome time has been,; ready to buy his

njuhction, but there seems no coal to

ime to time get no answer. Mr.
lindsey was recently notified that a

"Teachers' Plattsbures." at which
800,000 public school teachers will be J
siren practical training iu patriotic-
education, will be held during the com
ing summer in practically every state
in th6 Union by the National Security
League. The scheme of this elaborate
new division of the League's Patriot
ism Through Education campaign ' is
conceived on the same basic idea along
which the League has been working
for some time, concentrating on the
teachers of the youth of the land and
thereby reaching the children througtt
the teachers and the people through
The objects of the League's cam
paign are two-fold active combating
of German propaganda and awaken
ing a more responsible American citi
zenship. At Summer Schools.
The Security League will conduct
these "Teachers' Plattsburgs" through
the medium of the summer schools for
teachers that are held throughout the
country every year. It has not yet
been determined how many center's
will be used. The matter is . being
taken up with all of the 700 summer
schools of the country and probably
between 50 and 75 of the training
camps will be established, the schools
selected being chosen after careful in
vestigation as to attendance, breadth
of influence and convenience of loca
tion. The training camps will be conduct
ed by leading educators whose co-operation
will be enlisted by the League.
The actual Instruction will be under
the direction of Dr. Robert M. McEl
roy, educational director of the
League, and the members of the "Na
tional Patriotic Education Faculty"
which he has organized. The League
already has over 1,000 experienced pa
triotic speakers on Its Speakers' Bu
reau list. A great many of these men
and women will be detailed to the
"Teachers' Plattsburgs" and their
number will be augmented by volun
teers from the principal colleges and
universities of the country, whose aca
demic duties have prevented them
from taking active part In the patri
otic education work outside their im
mediate field, but who will be free
during the summer months.
The teachers will be given a series
of vital interpretations of the war by
men and women who have given care
ful study to the situation. In addition
to this instilling of the war spirit in
the teachers, the training camps will
also afford them practical instruction
in the best methods of imparting to
the youth of the land the two war
principles on which the Security
League's Patriotism Through Educa
tion campaign Is based the menace of
Germany to America, and the neces
sity of individual service on the part
of every man, woman and child in the
country in order to prevent defeat.
A preliminary letter has been sent
by Doctor McElroy to the directors pf
all the summer schools of the couotry.
