ADAIR AIR Cleve Bullette The first month of-1938 is almost over and although the busif nesjs bigshots of the country have been bellyaching to high" heaven about the so-called "busi-ness rcession" ttiis '^puny little business has found the first >month of the, new year very en' couraging. January and February, in the newspaper busi ness, are just "naturally'' supposed to-be dulir But "January of 1938, just to be contrary perhaps, has been pretty good to your Adair County Democrat. Therefore, for another month aj; least, - we will ignore business' cry of wolf and look to the future with optimism.

Two complete sets of readers sufficient to supply every pupil enrolled in each grade from fourth to eighth, with two new readers, and three "sets of readers with sufficient copies to provide each of the primary grades one to three with from three to six new readers were included in the shipment of more "than 65.0 books. Any'book in this shipment values from 60c to $1.80. The school'administration and Teachers desire the cooperation of all. patrons, in - introducing a new reading program this year, which will provide for from three to six different readers for the pupils of each grade in the elementary school at a cost which is less than one new reader. The plan is very simple.; For the small sum of 50c. per pupil-= is than tihe cost price.of one reader-the school -will provide'! not less than three . separates readers for, the intermediate grades, and as many as six different' readers for each of. the primary grades this year. . . The.adopted readers will be included among these books with no additional cobt. The 50c vou sendto the teacher* byvyour child pays the entire cost of,all readers furnished by the r school each year�and is. uniform for all grades. The money thus obtaiir-ed- is pbbled and is'used Jto buy readers in sets of 20 to 45 copiejfe gh^w^h^^^^t^l the amazingly low cost; of 5# pfer pupil, books can riot be^givv %ii to the pupil as..his iridjividUAl property; however, the* books ptfrchased by .this reading |^ l^rittbjekept inuribrokewsets by the school; hehce^ each pupil will' not' only have the-use of from three to six readers this. year, but will have alike number e^ch year as he progresses through the grade school. This plan will eliminate the need of any pupil buying a new reader at the beginning of a new term of school. For this 50c Teading f&e,'^h1cTi is -less than the cost of one reader, will, enable the'school'to build a:suipply of readers second to none in the state. This plan is more economical and provides for more readers than to haje each pupil buy his own adopted reader at the beginniri�''f the term j.and anotMr; supplementary reade at/W#*i�n^K �f ^e .se^.0T,, semBw TKc o\6^plan required each pjjiipii to- bijy^two readers each yea* arid lj%#ea him M the i^ae of.only the>,^6;b6ok8 he bought for his 6wji use. � FRUIT EXPERT TO ^CONDUCT PRufBNft DEMONSTRATION HERE � W� D.
