Big Consolidated School In
No. 8 Opens With 500 Pupils
' Special to The Star )
No 8 Township high school open
ed on Wednesday, J"ly 24 with 481
present the first day. The enroll
ment has Increased now to about
500, and many others are expected to
enter at an early date The school
Is now operating six trucks, trans
porting about 400 pupils.
Last year was a very successful
one with the school, there being 12
high school graduates and several
hundred promotions in the lower
grades. This year promises to be
the most successful school year in
the history of this township since
the high school department has
been made standard, having met
the state requirements and having
hern placed in group two, class A
by state high school inspector, J
L. Memory
The people of this communully
are very proud of this distinction
which very few schools win during
one year's operation. To date there
are enrolled in the high school
About 17 of this number belong to
the senior class and are expected
to graduate next spring. This year
two new departments, agriculture
and bookkeeping, have been added
Both add greatly to the efficiency
or I he school and w ill prove to be
valuable to the community, es
pecially in the field of agriculture
Also a successful year is antici
pated in athletics Last year, many
remember, the entire county was
surprised at the success ol of the
basketball team of No 8 school,
which came very near winning
county honors. Football has not yet
been organized, but we hope that
within another year plans will be
m operation for a grid team, Equip
ment and training are the only
needs in this sport
nans air now being made to level
up the school grounds and later in
the fall shrubbery will be planted
bv the teachers and pupils This
work is badly needed to be done
and will add much to the beauty of
the fine brick building which is the
pride of this community It is hop
ed that all the patrons of the school
will heartily cooperate with the
teachers and pupils in carrying out
the plans which are being made in
this respect
It’s true we are proud of this
fine school, but wc are not content
with our present achievements. We
realize the need of n vocational
building for shop work and home
economics, an indoor basketball
court, and a teachcry. We hope to
to see all these a reality in the near
future, and the writer believes that
the people who have made it pos
sible for such a beautiful school will
not "slow down ’ until these oilier
needs are also added.
During this school year the fol-1
lowing organizations are expected,
to be effected: Parent-Teachers' As
sociation, Dramatic dub. Glee club,
Literary societies and a Young
Tar Heel Farmers' club Plans to en
large the library are also In oper
ation. with one hundred books to
be added during the summer
months. A good book or the priee
of one would be a nice and helpful
gift to the school.
We. wish to congratulate Mr. Jam
es L. Dennis and his co-teachers for
their splendid achievements last
year. Riid we, as patrons of the
school, pledge them our hearty sup
port in the future Following is a
list of this year’s teachers and their

Farm Board Passes

Washington.—Buried deep in work
at the end of its first week, the
federal farm board passed up the
half holiday enjoyed by other gov

its task of organization.
The Florida lrnit emergency

first and only specific proposition
to gain the attention of the board.
The Floridians were told to get
all state agencies together 01

ing and to reappear on Monday
Pending further consideration of
the Florida situation, the board
tackled again its problem of deter
minating a general policy for the
uplift of agriculture and for liandl
mg tlie $150,000,000 as its disposal
for loans.
