The family consisted of his father and mother and eight children. They lived in a log house and Underbill said there was a cellar in front, under the floor and a wood burning fireplace. 'You could not hold, out your hand and say give me. If you didn't have it, you did without until you could work and get it," he wrote in his memoirs several years ago. He attended school only three months during the year and it was not unusual for him to have to stay at home and help with the work. Part of the work was getting ready for the winter months. "We put up our living for the winter. We made a barrel o kraut, a barrel of lye soap, a barrel of sorghum, a-10-ga!lon keg of pickles and a big po' of hominy. We buried Iris! potatoes, apples, turnips ant cabbage in the garden, swee potatoes in t h e cellar, and canned and dried all kinds o fruits and vegetables. We butchered hogs and renderec lard and had milk, butter and eggs and with all this we were ready for winter," he wrote.

She has been in Fayetleville since 1956 and she and her husband are the parents of four children. The oldest, Stephanie is 17, Mark 16, Thad 13 and the youngest is Burton D years old. Her husband operates Hanna Marine in Fayetteville. Mrs. Hanna has been active in scouting and was president of the Parent Teacher Association when it was organized at Asbell School. Mrs. Hanna seeks the school board position because ^she is concerned about the "moral atmosphere" in the schools. "I don't know that 1 can help, but I don't like the situation that exists in the schools. The moral atmosphere is not good and the things being taught are revolutionary in some areas. For example, some of the teachers think nothing is wrong and teach pragmatism and a l s o r e b e l l i o n against parental authority." she said. "Whether I win or not. I want us to be more selective in choosing teachers. I am sure, many parents feel the same way I do. I want to know what is being taught, who is teaching and who selects textbooks," she said.

Hanna strongly endorses vocational-education programs, but, said "Federally funded programs frighten me, but I think vocational education is intensely important and should continue but I would hale to see it controlled by the state," she said. Mrs. Hanna also strongly favors public kindergartens "I think kindergarten is essential for a child's beginning in school and they should be established as soon as funds are available," she said. The role of the School Board, as Mrs. Hanna sees It, is to lave an integral say-so in what happens in the school system, to our children, with our children and for our children, she said. "I think the School Board Is Doth an administrative and policy making body," she said. Mrs. Hanna thinks directors should be well informed in all areas of the school system and funding.
