PAGE TWO BLYTMKVMJ.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, APRIL 25,1949 Arkansas Journal of Education Devotes Article to Blytheville School Needs, Plans for Future Blythf ville't school problems, subject to a forum sponsored last week by ft committee of the Chnmber of Commerce, also Is the subject of nn 6rtide appearing in the current issue of the Journnl of Arknnsns Education. It was written by Miss Emma Scott, editor, following a survey or conditions here. The article, which deals with accomplishments in spile of limited facilities, follows: * • The Blytheville School District has a problem. It Is outgrowing itself. It is bursting at the scams. It needs new buildings, additional equipment, and more teachers. Located in the heart of the rich farm 'lanes of Mississtl>l>l County with the c'rty ot Blythevillu located well in the southwest corner, it stretches over nn area o! 79 square miles and counts an enumeration of 4.335 scnool aged children. Two high schools, one Junior hlsl 1 .. nnd H elementary schools take care, of children in the area. Even before the recent re-oreant- zalion brought into the Blytheville district the neighboring one of Oar Lake, Number Nine, Promised Land Lone Oak. Flat Like ami Reece, the Blytheville schools were taking care of most of the tn^ti .school children in those districts on a tuition basis, so thai when the re-orgf.nizatlon came, the increase in high school enrollment which resulle'd was not considerable, only. 13 to be exact. And since no elementary schools Included in the rc-ornniilzntlon have been abandoned, the wholfl change Is rather one of ( ralive and financial structure than in anything else. Reorganization hns. however, in r Blytheville as In other school districts, sharpened and brought into rooms. Mi.-^s Winnie Virgil Tinner, elementary .school supervisor, and Mi.v. n<isa Hardy, supervisor of junior and senior high schools, working witli (h>, -superintendent, principals, and teachers, arc engaged In the tn;:k o! curriculum revision, '.lie scri'O'.^np of new educational aids and procedures, the planning nnd . conmie'lnp "f fnculty meetings, and I lie ulvlnc of cla.woom aid when it is caller' for or needed by individual te;uher.:.

On the needs side of the ledger there are first of n11 Uvo ncw llisn school buildings. Tlie crowded conditions and lack ol space in the bull- dings now being used by Blytheville's higli school population arc definite blocks toward the attainment of the goals which any high school .sets for Itself. Auditorium study halls, poorly equipped labor- [ ( .. atorie5, crowded library space, in' adequate locker facilities, auditorium seating capacity too small to accommodate the student body, and : corridors that fairly bulge at Ihe • sldea eich time the bell rings for ' classes to pass: all of these arc eloquent testimonials to even the mosl casual observer that Blytheville must have new high schools. Blythevilc can point to a well- planned, cooperatively administered. , instructional program which con^ cerns itself not only with what lake,! - placo In the classrooms but also 1 with the In-service training and consistent upgrading, of the tcach- «rs who preside over those class- which carries over into Ihe summer !)!<• lonn of regiihuly mcetlns book c'libr and readillR reconls. At Ihe Yarbro School, wlicru Miss Minnie Foster is principal, the children have become almost specialists on the subject of one children's writer, Lois Lcnskt. It all grew out of their enjoyment and appreciation ot her Newbcrry Prize-Winning book. "Strawberry Girl." They wrote her a letter In praise of the story and suggested that she come to Mississippi county lo write a book about a "cotton land child." She evidently considered the suggestion a good one, for she came and lived in the area scvcial months, visiting in (He homes and schools, and gathering material for her Ixjok which Is soon to be published. In the book comer at Yaibro School there is a special Lenskl McMath to Hold Conferences on Highway Repairs offers such coi.rses as distributive education, diversiiied iH-uipalinns. I,idle Rock.
