to start is with the young pejople.
The time has come when we should have public school
music in the schools of Macon County ? not two or three
years hence, but NOW, while the present generation of child
ren is in school.
And Sunday night's event proved what also has been
proved before: There is no auditorium In this community
that is even approximately adequate. We need a community
auditorium, built as an auditorium, and large enough to
accommodate 1,000 persons, and we need that now.
"Where there's a will, there's a way" ? this community
has repeatedly proved the truth of that adage in reoenjt
months It can prove it again. For, if the public pfflcilals
of Macon County need private help in filling these two
urgent needs, all they have to dp is to ask for it. That, too,
has repeatedly been proved.
All we need is a little official leadeiship.
