We understand that Lake Toxa-
Vv’ay School recently challenged the
Brevard High School (the only ac
credited High School in the County)
for a spelling- contest. We can’t
under.stand why the challenge was
not accepted. Surely it was not be
cause they feared defeat, since Bre
vard High School has its teens of in-
r.tructors and hunrlreds of pupils to
rclect from, while Toxaway has only
t’lrec instructors and less than seven
ty - five pupils to select from. Surely
it was not because Brevard “Hi”
would frov.n at such a contest or con
sider it detrimental to school v/ork or
even literary attainments.

A. E. Hampton, prominent mer

in an interview with a representa
