COURIER NEWS arr • T T* T" if, Few Pnzes, Including Education, Had without Effort, Sanders Feels • "Few, indeed, are the prizes of life that are to be had without effort," ih speaking Ihese words, fMool Superintendent Frank 3an- wis will look you straight in the eye and._,te)l you "we learn as we live and we live to the extent that we" learn—Ihe more learning, ihe more capacity we have to live and in trying to broaden our views we must work toward that goal." "Brains have to be active to develop . . . learning Is the best food which your brain feeds, . . knowledge work.? somewhat like a .spiral, as you keep moving up. the spiral gets broader nnd broader. . ," Tlie.=.e parables spoken by Mr. Sanders were his way of getting his point over. He added: "It education Isn't worth Ihe effort to fork for, civilization would go backward instead of forward.^ There was nothing wrong with* Ihe 'Little lira School House' where so many great men and women got their first taste of learning, but H takes more than that little red school house to keep abreast with this changing v.orld. ."In order to compete ivith ot'uer nations In all fields. It Hikes constant study and thought. If w« weren't progressive, our nation t uld fall and to make our nation >gressive and to keep it that way it takes work on part of the students as well as the teacher." Going back now to Jan, 18, 1935, when Mr. Sanders came lo Osceola, not as the head of the school but to (ill the vacancy or Jim Pic^ren, who at- .that time was coach at the Osceola High School. ; "I was a senior at Memphis Stats College.

After the game, Mr. Deer went over to the dean's office and got my record as a student and my alhlellc ability. The next morning the Dean called me in his office and told me of the opportunily and added I would enjoy living in Osceola among its wonderful people and that he had known of the enthusiasm in athletics in Ihe sur- fmding territory. So he talked into it. Took Osceola Job "I had finished my four year course .in .33 months as I took the maximum load required to graduate at mid-term, l was graduated and came right on up to Osceola where mid-term exams were lak- ing place. I was assigned to six subjects right off the bat. had to coach both the girls' and boys' basketball teams. I was never so .surprised in all my life to find as many champions.

Those were days before we had i scnool buses to take the team.s to the surrounding towns but we never wanted for transportalltin to get our boys and the town boosters to ell the games. Oscer.ia has always supported its school nctiviiit.*, but It's a lol more convenient to be able to carry tlie players and their . equipment in buses. •Tn the Spring of 1937. I entered medical school at the University of Tennessee In Knoxville and stayed there until Jan, 1939. T knew after that time I was not cut out for a doctor. Teaching and coaching had ec-tlcn in my blood and I knew I would never be happy doing anything else, but 1 can assure you I would have made a lot more money but in those days that was secondary to me. "I came bark to Osceola to finish out the year and had a wonderful ofTer from the school at Hughes, which I'm mighty glad I took, for there is where I met my wife, who was teaching commercial work and also was secretary to the superintendent.

I got a letter In two or three days from Mr. Butler asking me why I didn't apply for the Job. which really hadn't occurred lo me. I was never any happier, to think I hadn't been forgotten In those 10 years. So I came to Osceola and met with the board and was hired as superintendent. At last my dreams had materialized.

A teacher Is only a human being acles with their children they shouldn't expect the teacher to do it. for after all teachers are Just men and women who chose the work for the love of it and are fn the school to help the child with all .situations and to teach them. But it is a 50-60 proposition—the teacher can't do II all." Mr. Sanders concluded by saying he didn't know whether It was the yoke or the glory of leaching that make,s a good teacher. Mr. Sanders, who loves Osceola as he said, better than any place on eartli, recently built his home here where Mr... Sanders and Ihelr four small pastor, who over garnished his sermons. "And.
