It was agreed to keep the links open
all summer and a very active summer
season is anticipated. Several tourna

raged for that time.
There will be two' match games of

Our neighboring little village, Lynn
is certainly to be congratulated on
her action last Tuesday in the matter
of voting an additional school tax.
There were 42 votes cast on the prop
osition, and every single one of them
voted FOR the tax. This indicates
the fact that the people of Polk coun
ty are awakening to the trmendous
importance to be derived from better
schools and longer terms. It is the
duty of the present generation to see
that the oncoming-one has every edu
cational advantage that is within our
gift. Education is the corner stone,
of safety in a republic.
Why the delay in the construction
of the Tryon and Saluda highway ?
The money is in the banks to be usefd
for that purpose. Good weather is
apparently here to remain for awhile,
and the people who cast their votes in
favor of this road are certainly en
titled to at least know why something
is not being done with it. The condi
tion that this road has been m during
the past few months clearly shows us
the necessity of early action. The
road should be completed and allowed
to become in a settled condition dur
ing the coming summer months.
