CORRECTION
Two weeks aco the Times car
ried an article concerning Clifton
J. Quy, R. M. lie, who is serving
aboard the USS COWPENS.
Through misinformation, the story
stated that Guy was a Warsaw
Negro. This was an error and we
are pleased to make the correction.
Seaman Guy is the son of Mrs.
Daniel Guy of Warsaw. He has a
brother, Cpl. Henry Guy who ar
rived home two weeks aco with an
honorable discharge from Robbing
Field in Macon, Ga. He was in
the Signal Corps, entering service
on Jan. 16, 1942. He served for 28
months in the Carribean.

today that regular school pIrskpr
will resume at the Beulavilie
school at the regular hour Mon
day morning, November 26th. All
teachers and buses are expected
to be there at the usual time.
Through engenuity, quick plan
ning,'" and loyalty on the part of j
workers in the Beulavilie section
the auditorium and gymnasium
have been converted into class
rooms sufficient to take care of
the thousand students attending
the school. Chimneys have been
constructed at the gym and heat
ers placed in every room. The
auditorium has a heating plant.
Desks and other necessary equip
ment have arrived and sanitarvi
facilities sufficient for the emer-'
gency have been installed.
In spite of the huge loss of the
main school building by fire, little
time has been 'lost and students
will feel little if any effect from
the break in their routine work.
Plans are being rushed to be
gin construction .of a new plant
as soon as practical.
