A major portion of the school direc

address by State Superintendent N. C.
SL'haeffer at the opera house Thursday

might receive the benefit of a better

rural districts, and, of course, the cen

embodying this idea, and also favoring
seven months instead of six as the mini
mum school term, together with other
things, were finally presented and
passed In a modilled form.
