'i'lic records of the State Textbook
i urchiiso and Rental Commission show
that, while the textbooks arrived too
late for the opening of school, a laree
number of school children in Hay
wood county availed themselves of
opportunity to acquire .heap books.
A lOta) Of :l,(i()2 books were ,listi il.

i mile per cent of the totai number' of

These records .further .show that
a larger percentage of high school
students bought books, while a larger
percentage of the elementary Stu
dents rented books. Of the 2.17")
books noki, 1.1K4 were sold to ele
mentary pupils and flit I to high
school pupils; of the 1,4-7 books uiat
were rented, 1,081 wi-re rented to ele-1
mentary pupils and 34i to high school
There has been much obicetion to.
and criticism of, the rental system
of the large amount of book-keeping
that is necessary, and the undue
amount of responsibility that is placed
upon the officials and teachers for the
safe return of the booJis. But objec
tion or not objections, the appeal of
cheap textbooks is great enough to
insure the permanence of the system.
