JAN. ATTENDANCE LOW
IN COUNTY SCHOOLS
Rankin School, North of White Oak
Has Highest Attendance—94
The average attendance of the county
schools was lower during January than
for any of the four fall months. The
.January average is 84 per cent as
against the 80 per cent for the first
four months. The Rankin school,
north of White Oak, had the highest
attendance, theirs being 94 per cent.
We certainly do pity the poor stu
dents who try to study in the library
during the fifth period.
Tuesday night, February 22, the Hj-Y
clubs had their regular supper. After
the supper the different clubs were di
vided into their chapter rooms for dis
cussions. The mothers serving for the
evening were Mrs. A. A. Atkisson, Mrs.
E. L. Davant, Mrs. C. W. Watson, and
Mrs. T. A. Glascock.
The Hi-Y Club No. 1, or the Robert
E. Lee Club, received a particularly
inspiring message from Mr. O. N. Pe-
tree. Mr. Petree used as his topic,
“Ideal Americanism.” He said that
everything an American boy did today
would come before him in his later
life and what the boy did today would
determine what he would do or be in
his later life.

ABSENCES EXCUSED BOTH DAYS
