The Henry County Weekly
As announced in the paper,
there will be a general trustee
and patrons’ meeting in con
junction with the Board of
Education on next Tuesday
morning, 10 o’clock, at the
court house. We shall have as
speakers Rev. Geo. D. Goddard,
Hon. Willis A. Sutton and
ay be one other state worker.
Mr. Goddard is one of the State
Supervisors and Mr. Sutton is
the wide-awake city supt. of
Atlanta Schools. We can hardly
find two greater educators in
Georgia.. Now, my friends, you
will not be true to j our schools,
nor your community, nor your
own children, if you do not lay
down everything, close your
doors, both at home and the
places*of business for one or
two hours, and come out to
hear these men. If you have
any Questions which you wish
to have answered, come out
and let these school men
answer them for you. Let them
tell you what the trend of
education is, and also, to show
you how you can materially
help in putting forward a plan
for better schools and better
results from them. Can you
conceive of anything so impor
tant as making men and nen
out of your children? Nothing
will compare with it. What
will become of your money?
In most cases, it is either
swept away or it estranges
your children, causing them to
become life time enemies. Lets
put our money, our efforts,
our best into the head and
hearts of our children, then it
will be safe. Nothing can take
it from them and then they
will have a fair chance out in
Mr. Goddard has asked that
the Parent-Teacher Associa
tions and Club be present. We
shall start the speaking
promptly at 10 o’clock and we
wish again to urge every school

Been in a fight,
Has no oil stock,
Made a bad bet —
