Differences Between Citi
zens and School Board
Stir Up Interest.
Differences that have arisen be- 1
tween citizens of Newnan and the!
School Board are furnishing a
topic of interest .just now. Several j
citizens have raised the question '
of the legality of charging matri
culation fees for each month of the
school term; claiming that under
the law, if the city accepts school
money from the State for a live
months school term, it must main
tain for that length of time a
school absolutely free to all pupils
in all except the high school
The matter has been discussed
by citizens and by the Board, hut
not settled. Several patrons have
refused to pay matriculation fees.
Their children remain in school,
but an adjustment of the matter
nr. it be reached soon.
When seen by a representative
of the News, President T. E. At
kinson, of the School Board, said
he expected to call a meeting next
week to determine just what ac
tion the Board will take.
Developments in this matter
will be watched for with interest
by all citizens interested in the
public schools of the city.

Haralson is situated It miles south
west of Senoia, almost on the line be

of ground. The business interests of

cation of our children. It savors, yes
exceeds, socialism. In magnitude muni
cipal or governmental ownership of
ones own property is not so fauutic as
this modern plan of forcing people to
pay tax witiiout their consent.
