.The Randolph county summer school,
which has been in session since July 28 ,
is now closing the last week.
' Much1 good has been, accomplished :
during the school, and the dawn of a .
brighter day is just ahead of the school
system in Randolph county. . .
The last -week of the school has .been
devoted to examinations. - ; 5 ,
Dr. G. M. Cooper, director of public
health, lectured on Wednesday of last
week, August 13th, on the subject of
examining school children. Dr. Coop-
er will bring the North Carolina Emer
gency Hospital into the county as sooa.
as possible for the benefit of the school'':
children. . The" entire cost of this hos
pital will be $12 to those who are able
to pay, and entirely free to those who
cannot pay. There will also be a den
tal examination and children from 6
to 12 years old will have their work
done free of charge. -This hospital will -
have three nurses, the third being tha
county nurse. It will contain fifteen
cots and other modern equipment Chil
dren are" kept in the emergency hos- .
pital at night.- Some of the best pny
sicians tf the state will do the work ia
this hospital. . ' 4
Mrs. Hargrave, county educational i
nurse, will go to Raleigh on the last of -August
to be with the public board of
health for three days to consult .the ;
board as to the welfare of Randolph ,

One of the most interesting lectures
given by the summer school directors,
was a lecture by Prof. Sentelle Tuesday
on civics. .
Mr. Sentelle mentioned wavs ; and
plans, whereby the great aim of civic
efficiency is to be realized, what con- (
stitutes a good citizen. He emphasized
the great failure of teaching civics had v. , ,
been due, first, to a lack of knowledge ' , '
or, citizenship on the part of teachers, - .
and lack of text books fol; school use. fl ,
Few books written on methods cf t '

lore" we can hope to realize the great
aim or civic efficiency the teaching
force must be educated in their parti- ' ,
cipation and responsibilities along civ
ic lines. ' )
The public has not demanded and
paid for women and men of maturity
and professional training who are able
to lead the children and community
forward in civic efficiency as an impor- '
tant goal of education. . s5
Realizing as teachers that we have
failed in teaching citizenship as we
should, in the schools, we hope to rem
edy this by giving this subject an equal
standing with others in the course of
study, using text books v;ritten for 1
school use that children will under
