School Going Well In Farmville for Gradeless Classes By BILL JOHNSON FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) - Ernest Pratt studied the sign by his feet, then softly read out "floor." He looked toward the front of the room at another sign and read wall." Around the room in the small brick building were other signs, "door," "window" and "chair. 1 Ernest could read most of the words, admittedly not much of an accomplishment for an 8-year-old. For Ernest, though, it was the beginning of the new world of learning he entered only one week ago. Free Schools Ernest and 1,501 other children are enrolled in the privately financed and gradeless schools operated by the Prince Edward Free School Association. When the doors opened last Monday, it was the first time in four years that free education was available to all children in this southside Virginia County. "The week was as smooth as could be expected when you bring a faculty together from all over the United States and there are no textbooks; "said Dr. Neil V. Sulivan of East Williston, Long Island, N.Y., the free schools' uperintendent. "The fact that we survived at all is a tremendous ribute to the teachers." With children who had not been subjected to classroom discipline for four years, or perhaps never n their 11 years, the transition :rom an unregimented environment could have been difficult. Jut Sullivan said that except for 'one minor iricident on a school )us, there have been no disciplinary problems. Decorum has been excellent."

They are Letitia Tew, 7; Richard Moss, 17, and a brother and sister, Brenda Abernathy, 15, and George Abernathy, 7. "There are still children, both white 'and colored, who are not in any school," Sullivan said. "Our bus drivers have reported to us the homes where they have seen children. We will visit these homes and try dren enrolled." to get the chil- Letitia could print her name before she entered the old Worsham school, but many of the other children there, like Ernest Pfatt, had never been exposed to reading or writing. Both Sullivan and James Wiggins, Worsham principal, agreed that the major problem has been one of adjustment. "Many of the children had not been away from home in four years," Sullivan said. "Just being away from mother for the mornings only was a major adjustment they had to make." Problems "Crying, and getting the children on the right buses are our major concerns right now," said Mrs. Sullivan. "Some of them hardly know their own names, and they can't remember their bus number. Each teacher is assigned one bus and she has a list of children who rode on that bus." "We hope to. field basketball, baseball and other regular varsity sports both for boys and girls," said W. E. Johnson of Chicago, the high schol athletic director.
