They will however, close as the law directs on the 20th day of December, T. M. Battle, T. C. accused of “idling and trifling when she was ill and under the care of a physician. But that is what the letter her father receiyed said. The following letter has been received by The News from a parent of one of the girls in the High school. THANKS THE NEWS. Editor Macon News: “I just want to thank you for giving the people an opportunity to express their opinion in regard to those letters parents received from the principal of the High main at home afternoons' School. I received one concern- venings themselves in as-1 mg my daughter. I can speak ig their children to get their tor her. She certainly does ns and then when they do J study. There are many days them the children come \ when she does not have time to from school and inform | get out of the house on account that they were all wrong. | of the lessons that she is re heir interpretation of the j quired to get. The students at ns. u'LDN’T work problem. e parent reports that in one e arithmetic classes there a certain example his son I not work. The parent it himseli and Jwas unable nd a solution. He called veral of his neighbors who experts in figures and they not solve the problem, dd his son to get the teach- work it. The teacher has lone so yet and the parent *** the opinion that he '°t believe that the teacher how. A number of in- es of this sort have been re- d. originally stated by The i there are some children are naturally backward in studies and who never are to keep up with their class. Vnen it is necessary for W50 8 to be sent out calling tion of parents to the fact Ban y children are not mak- ^•sfactory grades, it is ap- "• *hat some thing is radi- wrong with the system of lln £or the curriculum. s now claimed by the school >ntles that only 73 children toade marks that were not lent to Promote them. But |Ue stion *s being asked if 18 true why- were the * ^nt out to parents call- ontion to the fact that children were “idling and and “clogging the ' v ‘On they were making sufficient to promote. Parent received a letter n> 5 daughter who had been ^ 1 ' n bed for more than ee ks and was still cou- her room at the time e er was received. Sure- 6 io ung gi r i j|o u id not be latttbnftgg Mortal Doings Among Those That See and Know. (4^ BY SELENE MR. CRAY RETIRES the school have too many lessons in my opinion. Either that or the lessons they are required to learn are entirely too long. My daughter came home the other day with 33 examples to get in arithemetic. This in addition to fhe other studies kept her busy the entire afternoon and far into the night. “Just to go to school and re cite lessons to the teachers is not in judgement the proper policy for any school to pursue. If the children do not know their lessons they are given bad marks. If they are required to get everything perfect at home. Ido not see any reason for having teachers. I have nothing against any of the teach ers, but I do think they should have a little mercy on a child. I know of one pupil who asked one of the teachers to explain a certain proposition, stating that she just could not work it and the teacher told her that he would explain nothing. You will have to get your lessons at home or miss them, he said and he Refused to help her at all. It strikes me that it is the duty of the teachers to render all the assistance they can to the- child ren, so that they would be able to understand the various matt ers. In my opinion the fault at the high school in mainly with the ^teachers. They give the children lessons that are too long and.then refuse to help them at school.’’ “I want to thank The News for calling attention to the letters and for giving the parents an opportunity to express them selves in regard to conditions at the school.

Dollar, Carl Brock, Wesley Martin and other gentlemen, farmers from the northeastern section of the county came down Monday night and met with the city council, asking for some protection from the sale of stolen hogs along the line mentioned in this paper several weeks ago. The city Fathers were ready to assist the farmers in any manner they could and Mayor Callahan hav ing invited the visit from the farmers to discuss the matter had already prepared an o^liance affording them the needed pro tection which appeals in the council proceedings published on another page in this paper. This situation has been very grave in some parts of the county as men have been missing their hogs and considerable amounts of thieving was believed going- on. The selling of hogs with their heads cut off, removing all marks was going on to such an extent that the farmers asked the council to give them an ordinance preventing the markets from I buying such hogs and prohibiting I the buying of hogs between ! Sundown and Sunrise. They are also going to ask the councils of ! the adjacent towns to aid them in their effort to break up this ! hog stealing. It the adjoining j towns will also pass an ordinance of this nature they will help the I farmers in this crusade. The ! city council seemed very desirous of co-operating with the farmers in this matter and immediately passed the ordinance requested. DEATH OF ASA FAEEMAI ; On November 30th, the death 'angel visited the home of Mr. I and Mrs. Mitchell Freeman, of 'Chattahoochee, and bore away j the spirit of their son, Asa, to a home above. He was about : seventeen years old. Asa was a ' very quiet manly boy, I only j knew him a short while, but al ways found him pleasant, he had a smile for everyone, and he gladly took part in anything he ! was asked to do which pertained to good. He was sick only nine Idays and everything was done for his comfort and relief by his friends and physicians, but God . claimed him. He was laid to rest on the first day of December in {thefamily burial grounds near Dell, by the side of his mother and grandparends. A large crowd of friends and relatives were present and the school children whom he daily associated with marched with casket, each with an armful of flowers with which they covered the grave. It was sad to give up one so young and useful, but it made me rejoice to see he had so many friends. May his life, though so short be the means of others trying to live better lives. May God bless the family and help them to follow in the footsteps of their loved one. “For death is only a dream.” A Friend.
