Watch Newnan Crow Che JMewnan 3tlcckl\> )Scm Watch Newnan Crow VOL. VI. Oi'dinnry-s OfH ce — NEWNAN, GA., FRIDAY. JANUARY 19. 1906. NO. 41 Trade With the Hustling Merchants Who Advertise in the Newnan News. School Board will Take No Action. The Newnan School Hoard will take no action in the matter of differences with patrons about the payment of contingent fees. This information was given to the News by a member of the Board. The Hoard will take no action whatever, but will go right along as it has been doing heretofore. The children of those patrons who refuse to pay contingent fees, will not be expelled from school but will be allowed to continue in at tendance. The Hoard claims it is taking the only action possible under the circumstances. Some members have expressed a desire to have certain changes made in the school system; but, it seems tin* entire Board concurs in believing that nothing can be done at present. Briefly, this is the position of the Board. On the other hand, certain patrons of the school con tend that they are only asking the Hoard to act strictly in accordance with law in managing the schools. They contend that a free school, without any contingent fee attach ments, must be maintained at least five months in the year and be lieve that the city ought to main tain the school free for ten months of each year. They also object to the admission of non-resident pu- B pils to the schools on same terms f as resident pupils; claiming that it 1 is wrong to tax citizens of New- 3 nan to educate the children of citi- | zens of Coweta county, outside of f Newnan, or pupils from other if counties or states.
