County Plan of

:. (Wm. C. Allen, Superintendent.)
In 1923, the Haywood County
Board of Education, after. county
wide canvass and in Una with a res
olution passed at a meeting of com
mitteemen of the various' districts in
the county, adopted what is known
as the "County-Wide Plan" of build
ing operation,' and maintenance of
the school system. That plan la com

Perhaps, after the lapse of three
years since the adoption of the plan.
'oui minds need to be refreshed as to
its meaning, purport, and compaas
in the light' of the present situation
in the county, and the further esti-
mate of its practicability as a work-.

As is readily seen, the plan is '
