What the Plan is and What it Means to Haywood County. ' :. (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 prehensive and practical, and- can be expeditiously put on all feet as soon as the authority is given the Board of Education by the court ol last. resort, the people , Perhaps, after the lapse of three years since the adoption of the plan.

The number of students completing the elementary school is so small that a high school will hardly be needed in that town ship for a number of years.
