THE ENTERPRISE
COUNTY BOARD OF
EDUCATION MEETS
AT COURTHOUSE
Consider Petition Call
ing For Special Tax
Election
The County Board of Education met
at Call of Chairman K. B. Crawford
on the 15th of May for the purpose
of considering a petition calling for
Special Tax Election. The petitions**
weie qualified voters of Spring Green
District. This petition had been before
the Hoard on last first Monday, but
action was delayed until Thursday,
the 15th for the purpose of hearing
all parties concerned and canvassing
the strength of the signers,, The pe
titioners were asking that their chil
dren be admitted to Gold Point Spec
ial School Tax District on the same
terms as the present |uirticiuators in
the privilege of Gold Point School.
It, however, appeareo that out of fear
that the voters of one of the larger
school units might, by out voting
tltem, compel the (Nitrons of Spring
Green to be annexed to their district,
this petition was born. As soon as it
was explained that each district has
the determination of its destiny until
the financing of the district becomes
impossible, a second petition was pre
sented asking for the withdrawal of
the first.
Then the representatives of the
surrounding special tax districts re
assured the patrons of Sprint? Green
that no efforts at compulsion were in
tended; rather that any or all of the
children in Spring Green District were
extended an invitation to enjoy the
privileges of the larger schools at no
cost to them. The patrons of Spring
Green District thought this a splendid
attitude, and expressed a desire to as
sist in paying the way of any high
school pupils sent u> adjoining dis
tricts for the seventh and eighth
month, and foresaw that the time
would come when there woul-l lie a
>ufScient number of high school , pu
pil.-. going to adjoining special tax
districts to warrant the holding of an
election for special tax in Spring
Green District. All parties seemed
satisfied, arid after other routine busi
ness was transacted, the meeting ad
journed.
A NOTE OF THANKS
On behalf of the cyclone sufferers
of Martin Coui.ty ami of the American
Red Cross we extend to the people
of William .ton and the adjacent com
munity our hearty thanks for their
generous contribution to our local re
habilitation fund. rC-"
The Willianiston g.ft is merged with
gifts from other towns, individual
contributions from citizens of the
country, contributions front churches
and clubs, and from the National Red
Cross. This fund is taking on larger
proportion- and we tru.-l will toon
be adequate to meet the great needs
in the wake of the storm.
I'p to this date careful investiga
tion shows that one hundred families
have been affected by the disaster.
Many of these have suffered a loss of
all their belongings. With the assist
ance of your gift the immediate need*
such as food clothing, shelter and
medical aid have been supplied and
the Real Cross committee is now busy
in its attempts to establish the farm
ers on a more permanent ha si;;, in rr
der that there may be as little check
in the farm work as possible.
We are glad to announce that by the
noble generosity of our neighboring
towns the suffering and inconvenience,
caused by the storm disaster have been
reduced.
Again thanking you for your contri
bution, we remain
Very sincerely,l

IMR. PEEL REPLIES
TO STATEMENT
I IN PREV IOUS ISSUE
Asks Committee That
Names Be Pub
lished
Mr. Editor:
Judging from the statement in your
• last issu eof The Enterprise signed
• by. The Committee uf The Chamber
i of Commerce. It looks as if I have
rubbed their fur the wrong way and
i started them to howling.
1 want it understood now, that 1 am
, willing and ready to stand with The
Chamber of Commerce in any pro
gressive movemnet they wish to make,
and would gladly move my business!
if they would get Pie a desirable place
to move into.
1 have the highest regard and
respect for the Chamber of Commerce
as a whole. It is> composed of some
of the very best character and most
honorable citizens of our town. I be
lieve they have mine and th« town's
best interest at heart, but as all other
organizations, there are a few. low
down Contemptible Curs, who slip in
and tr;> to corrupt the m rals and run
the affairs under fictitious names for
their own gain and glory.
Now because « 1 am man enough to
stand up for my rights and not !«*
run over by a few of just such charac
ters ns these and rail roaded out of
my place without my consent, 1 am
maliciously blackguarded 1 have the
utmost contempt for them and will
just consider the source, I don't think
I have ever been accused of stealing,
as doubtless some of them have,
i Neither do I or. The Chandler of
Commerce know the names of this
Committee of The Chamber of Com
merce, and if they are gentlemen or
any better than they think me, they
will publish their names in full in
your paper, so we all may know who
they are ami let the public • be the
Judge. People who live in glass houses
cannot throw stones.

INTER-CLASS
TRACK MEET HELD
Seniors Nose Out Fresh
ies By Lone
Point
When Frederick Hoyt, the last run
ner in the relfcy race brushed by Ira
Harrison and John Booker ami secur
ed first place for his team in, this
event, the Seniors grabbed the title
of school champions from the Frosh
who up to that time hail l>een lead
ing in the inter-class track meet hoi,l
at the local school grounds on Wed
nesday afternoon. Intense interest had
been manifest by the various classes
of the school throughout the entire
! contest. The flnal score by classes was.
Seniors 34, Freshmen 33, Sophomores
18, Juniors 16,
The palm fop stellar individual work
goes to Frederick Hoyt who was in
strumental in «ecuring twenty-five of
his class' thirty-four points. This
versatile track artist took first place
in the 100 yard dash, the 220 yard
"Ttfish, the standing broad jump, the
running broad jump and wound up the
afternoon's entertainment by bring
ing home the bacon in the relay race.
The only othef entries in the meet
from the senior class were, Pat tie
Harris, Myrtle,, Wynne, and William
Hodges. Before spraining her knee
badly in the broad jump, Pattie Harris
had added to her team's total by tak
ing first place in the 50-yard dash.
This injury, early in the meet, left the
graduating class with only three en
tries, making their victory all the
more remarkable.
What the Froshies lacked in speed
and experience, they made up in sheer
weight of numbers. They were en
tered ill each event several times and
were especially successful in the
humorous contest. However thty had
one strong man, Ira Harrison, who
was second in individual scoring with
a total of 15 1-2 points,
'1 lie girls of the ninth grade W ere
the leaders in bloomer events, taking
IK out of a possible total of 33 points.
The v#fy smalt attendance on the
part of townspeople was decidedly
diappoinfing to the entire school.
However there were almut twenty win*

their children were doing.
