CATALOG AND ANNOUNCEMENTS 



ALCORN COUNTY AGRICULTURAL 
HIGH SCHOOL 



Kossuth, Mississippi 
1913-14 



TO THE PUBLIC AND PATRONS. 



We call particular attention to the matter contained in 
this catalogue. The success of the schools will depend 
largely upon the good will, harmony and support that 
exist between patrons and teachers, and it. is confidently 
believed that this condition will only broaden and deepen 
Its both parents and teachers learn more clearly how much 
each needs the intelligent aid and sympathy of the other in 
shaping the destiny of the child. For a parent to criticise 
the teacher in the presence of a child is to do the child 
an irreparable injury. You cannot afford to do this, if 
you are working for the best interest of your child. If you 
have grievance or complaints to make, the projier thing to 
do would be to go to see the teacher about them. Many 
a disturbance could be amicably settled if the patron would 
only take the time to investigate and see the teacher. 

The teachers employed in this school are God-fearing, 
honest, conscientious men and women, and will spare no 
effort to advance your children as rapidly as possible, both 
mentally and morally. But their success must be based on 
your confidence, your sympathy and your co-operation. 
They do not ask this for their own sakes, but for that of 
the children. 

Parents and friends are invited to visit the schools as 
frequently as possible. Let all join hands in building up 
the best school at Kossuth to be found in the State. 



Yours truly, 
HAL ANT)EKSON, Principal. 



HISTORY. 
The public-niiiidcil citizeiLs df Aleoi-ii C'uinty, realizinp 
tlie necessity <if practical work in scliooU and iiinre espe- 
ciiilly the importance of proper traiiiiti;,' al<jn;_' a^'i'iciilt ural 
and industi'iai lines, a\'ailed tlieiiiscK cs of the op|)ortiinitie.s 
offered by the hiw.s of the Slate and established the Alcorn 
County Agricultural Iligh School. 

The first scsssion of the .school o[)cne(] in Oetolier, l'J(,)9. 
A few days aftci- the opening of the school the old law 
■■vas declannl unconstitutional. However, we eontinued to 
work, runnin;r a free school ojien to all u'rades. .\fter 
the Legi.slalure cori'ectcil the mistakes inadc\ work wa.s 
icsunied on our new buildiiu:, tliis bi.'iiiM eompleted m time 
far the school to itio\'e into ne\v <piai-teri before the elosi' 
cf the first session. The second session N\as a urreat success 
in every way. 

On February lOtli, 19T2, the school budding' was con- 
sumed by fire. The pood peoph; of Kossulh threw open 
their homes to the hoarding pupils unid tlie Hoard of 
Trustees leasetl the hotel for a dormitoiy On the 'J'Jd of 
the same month school \\-as resumed in the old Kossutli 
free school buildinjr, with the hotel as (h)rmitory. The 
remainder of the session the scliool was '.'ood and the 
iittcndancc lield up better tlian was I'xpocted. 

In May the Board of Sujjervisors is.sued $0,000.00 in 
bonds an(] the Board of Trustees, undi^r an a(.'t of the last 
Legislature, borrowed $5,000.00 ami it is hoped that by 
September two new buildings, by far suprassini: the old 
one, will have been constructed. 

Because of delay on the part of the contractors, we did 
not move to our new buildings until the middle of Decem- 
ber, 1912. The school oiiened after Cliristmas with renewed 
vim and <h'fermination, and things moved on well \intil 
tlie close, May 27tb, the nttendance holding (.)nt better than 
in the past, and o\ir splendid graduating class .setting a 
precedent high in grade attainments and moral behavior. 
The climax came in the speech of lion. J. W. Powers and 
all ended well.

LOCATION. 

Ko83uth is very near the geographical center of Alcorn 
County, nine miles from Corinth, the intersecting point of 
the Illinois Central, Southern and M. & 0. Railroads.. 

Kossuth is a healthful little town and has a citizenship 
that is enthiLsiastic over the prospects of our school. They 
are careful to see that the town is free from those contami- 
nating and demoralizing influences so often found in our 
towns. 

The school grounds are located on the highest point in 
Kossuth. "We are supplied with an abundance of pure well 
water, pumped from a well 200 feet deep, this well having 
been bored through about 100 feet of impervious strata 
assures us of good pure water for all time to come. 

The general lay of the land slopes in all directions from 
the building, thus giving us absolute drainage. In fact, had 
the School Commissioners searched the whole country over 
it would have been hard to have found a more suitable 
location. 

DISCIPLINE. 

We believe in training a child in the way we would 
like to see him go, and that we cannot start too soon. It is 
ruinous to a child in the undeveloped state to leave him 
without a guiding and restraining hand in his daily conduct. 
In order that the teachers may be responsible to parents for 
the discharge of duty, they must have absolute control of 
the pupils from the time they enter the school until they 
stop. Parents are requested to aid the teachers in the dis- 
cipline of their children, and if they 'are not willing for 
their children to be controlled, they are kindly requested to 
send them to another school. Our discipline shall be firm, 
but not harsh. All rules must be obeyed. In order to 
learn to govern and control, one must first learn to be 
governed and controlled ; to command respect, one must 
also respect others. The generals who have made the best 
officers were once boys who willingly submitted to being

arranged that each girl will have only the reipiired amniuit 
fo do each day. It i.s not our intention to force any work 
on any girl that she is not capable of standing, hut merely 
to make tlie total expense as small as possible. 

The boys will be required to do the work about the 
place that is ordinarily expected of boys at home on the 
farm. They will be required to get the water, wood, etc., 
to look after the stock, lot, garden, field, hel[i in building 
up the place in general. They will also be required to keep 
their own rooms clean and in perfect order. 

In addition to the regular work each (iay in the school 
Aveek, the boys will be given an opportunity to work every 
Saturday morning on the place, for which they will receive 
compensation, this compensation to go first to paying for 
their laundry, which will be done by hired help, and in

partment the amount called f;r on the board bill. This

] pupils. 

! Any pupil havinp contaErious disease will be required

patrons to assist us in carrying out this provision. 

Pupils will be held strictly acountable to the faculty for 
any misconduct while going to or from school.

^ 



Ail piijiils shiill be expected to be present at the chapel 
exercises each morninr;. 

We iiia!<<' this an earnest aiipcal tn the parents to stop 
all Friday Tii^'ht frolics and le^t. the children spend the 
Kession i;; careful study, ^^m cannot expect us to accom- 
plish Huyiliin^' if you allow your boys and piids to go out 
to frolics, parties, etc., during the session. In case you 
expect your girl to succeed, then stop her from receiving 
conipan}' during the session. 

Again, we ask for the co-operation and help of the 
jintrons in making this school a success. 



During the past session we have added more than 100 
volumes of standard literature, an Encyclo[)cdia, a Dic- 
tionar\' and two nice book cases to oui- [library. We hope, 
with the aid of concerts, suppers and the regular fee of 
50 cents required of each pupil, to do even more the com- 
ing session. 

We realize the absolute necessity of an abundance of 
reference books, and our-aim is to give our pupils the very 
best of everything. 



At the end of each month the teachers shall make out 
reg\ilar reports, showing the attendance, deportment, and 
general progress of each pi;pil in each recitation. These 
reports shall be signed by the parent or guardian and 
returned to the teacher. Ea':'h teacher shall be expected to 
make a copy of the report on the general report register 
prepared for this purpose. This register shall become a 
part of the history of the school. 

ATTEND.\NCE. 

Realizing the importance of punctual attendance', we 
request the patrons of the school to assist us in this. It 
is impossible for your children to do the work we expect 
of them if you allow them to remain at home two or three 

13 



da\-s each week. It not only throws the pupil behind, but 
puts him as a stuniblinor block in the path of progress of 
others. We therefore urge that you make any sacriii ■/^ 
within reason to keep the pupils in regularly.

ATHLETICS. 

We believe that well-directed physical e.xercise preserves 
the health of the student, stimulates hia mental activity 
and elevates the moral tone of the student body. Mischief 
is only misdirected energy, and the teacher is often the 
cause of a student's misconduct. The school that develops 
the mental side of the pupils to the neglect of the physical,

is fcilinu in its mi.ssicn to mankind. Therefore, our school 
lins made ample provisions in this respect for both sexes. 

'.'he harm lies not in the athletics, but in the abuse of 
it and in the athletes. "We will encourage the boys to play

ball, yet the Boards have placed the following restrictions 
on the athletes: All teams must be under the supervision 
of the Superintendent. No games will be played with other 
teams without the Superintendent or some other teacher 
present. Tilatch games will be limited to school teams. No 
pupii will be permitted to play in a match game who does 
not make a general average of SO per cent, on his or her 
daily recitations and a monthly average of S5 per cent, on 
deportment.
