At a special meeting of the
Board of Education here Mon

J. T. Smith made the following
recommendations to the Board :
"Owing to the late season and
the need of the children to work
on the farm, it is recommended
that the Board of Education
allow any school in the county
to be put off for two weeks, or
until Oct. 16th, provided the
people of the district desire to
have the school postponed and
can make satisfactory arrange
ments with the teachers so as
not to cause damage or unneces
sary expense to them.".
It was further recommended
that "every school be opened on
Oct 16th, and where a teacher
cannot begin then, unless
providentially hindered, that
a teacher be secured who can
begin at that time."
The Board approved the above
recommendations and ordered the
Supt to notify teachers at once.
