Oct. 15 – Night school, as a part of the city school system, without tuition fee to residents of Anderson, opened last evening at the high school building with 579 students ranging from youngsters to people at mature years.

The large auditorium was taxed to capacity and all were anxious to pick out their particular course. Mechanical practice, commercial and domestic courses were most sought after, with more than 400 people enrolling in the three courses.
