2( anvil HERALD, Hondo (Modi** County) Ttsu, Jun«15. INI farther apart in term of travel
time than Yancey and Hondo, or
even Yancey and Uvalde. He Baid
that Yancey does not now have
enough students to justify the ex-
pense of highly paid teachers, and
that taxes now in the Yancey area
are $1.50 per $100, more than
anywh re else in the county.
Play Football Shorthanded
He pointed out that they have
been paying the $1.50 rate for
vea.s, and asked people to figure
what they get for the money, and
see how costly it is to operate the
high school. Me A nelly also said
that when a school gets down to
where kids have to play football
shorthanded, it is a serious handi-
cap and it is not fair to the boys.
A. J. Hardt said that he regret-
ted not having transferred his boy
to Hondo, especially for the last
year or two o£ his high school
T. A. Duderstadt spoke and said
that the change would benefit the
grammar school, because the
teachers could have more help in
teaching the eight gr ades.
Mrs. Roy Worley objected to
sending the students to Hondo,
because she felt that some of the
Hondo students had a “superior-
Supt. Barry asked permission to
argue that point, and said that
Hondo, Yancey, New Fountain,
tjuihi, and all other nearby points
have so much in common that he
did not feel there was any discrim-
ination concerning such things as
where a child came from.
Some “Spoiled Rotten
He agreed that some students

best to resume high school at Yan-
cey, it could be done. There would
be no extra expense for the par-
ents, and the students would
have the privileges of engaging in
glee club, hand, and other extra
activities which were being plan-
ned for Hondo in 1951-AJ52. He
said that for years the Yancey
students have been frequently us: .
ing the Hondo gymnasiums and
football fields, and the transfer
would just let them attend classes
in the same place.
Barry said that if Yancey sent
their 21 high school students to
Hondo next year it would entitle
the school to one more teacher,
while Yancey would then be able
to put six teachers in charge of
their first 8 grades instead of the
three that now teach the first six.
Short Bed Cover
Mrs. Louis Faseler spoke to the
group, and said that Yancey has
been for several years like the
man who had short bed cover.
When he pulled it up to cover his
shoulders, his feet got cold, and
when he covered his feet, his arms
snffered. She pointed out that
some students had been required
to take agriculture or homemak-
ing against their own wishes in
order that the school could get
the state aid.
Robert Faseler took agriculture
for feror years, and 444 tire same
work each year, although he want-
ed to take Spanish and was not
able to work it in. Two girls were
also required to take agriculture
several years ago in order that
the course could be held open dur-
ing a time when enrollment was
Churche* Might Suffer
Elroy Mofield said that he felt
Yancey would lose too much if
the high school students transfer
red. He felt that their churches
would suffer, and that the com-
munity life would he disrupted.
Mofield also read a copy of a let-
ter from Dr. .1. W. Edgar, state
.commissioner of education, who
-id that about a year ago that
the state board cl id not plan any
arbitrary withdrawal of accredi-
tation from schools which main-
tained their standards, even if en-
rollment did diop below the mini
mum figures. Mofield said that he
would stack up Yancey's graduates
against any others.
Dan MeCrea spoke and said that
apparently boys from Yancey had
a better “moral tone” than those
from other areas, according to
what his son had reported after
attending Southwest Texas Junior
Urdlege in Uvalde. He felt that, it
would he best to continue the high
(1. ('. McAnelly said that he
agreed with Mofield and MeCrea
concerning the quality of the
Yancey students, and said they
might do Hondo a good turn to
send some of their fine students
up there. He also said that when
the old Stiles and Tehaucana
schools were operating, they were
might be “spoiled rotten” but said
that was true in any school, and
that fine records had been made
by many Hondo students who liv-
ed in the country’.
E. A. Bendele, who was attend-
ing the meeting as a representa-
tive- of the county school hoard,
said that he hoped all those con-
cerned could agree on which way
to go, and said that disagreements
made it difficult for the county
had five children, and wanted
them to have the best possible
education. She favored sending
them to Hondo when they reach-
ed high school age. Mrs. Robert
Easeler, who teaches homemaking
in Hondo, said that she had not
seen any “country kids” from New
Fountain, Quihi or the Fly school
districts. She said that when those
girls joined the; Hondo high school
classes in homemaking, she had
to ask them where they wrere from
if she wanted to know.
W. S. Garnett said, about 10:30,
that he was sure everybody had
already made up his mind before
coming to the meeting, and sug-
gested that the group vote and go
"Be*t Possible Education"
Buford Wilson, speaking as
president of the Yancey board of
trustees, said that “if we could
keep school in Yancey, I am for
it.’’ He said that they were all in-
terested in the best possible educa-
tion for their children, and proved
that by their attendance at the
meeting. He said that he could not
see any better way to provide the
education than to tranafer the
high school students to Hondo,
and said “I think we are fortunate
that Hondo has asked us. Let’s
give it a trial this year.”
Elroy Mofield said that he felt
the matter should be put to a for-
mal election, and Wilson added
that if and when the high school
population increased, they would
re-open. The voting was conducted
by secret ballot, and turned out
55-i;4 in favor of operating the
high school in Yancey for 1951-52
In announcing the decision, Wil-
son said, “We will attempt to op.
crate the high school next year ’’
The board has employed some of
the teachers for next year, but
