The Heartbeat of the Progrewive Territory of Nation's Most Versatile Industrial Climate Located at Dam of Texas' Largest Lake Year Malakoff, Henderson County, Texas, Friday, February 26, 1965 Number Eight The Student Council of Malakoff Elementary School BAKE SA I.E The Malakoff Senior- ,~ill morning, February 27 in the PUBLIC SCHOOL WEEK The need for the public school never changes, but times and conditions may change or require to be changed meth- ods and practices of public education.

It is a healthy thing in our democratic way of life to have intelligent understanding of the import'+.nt fu,ctiona of ,*ur ?asi institutions. This is especially true of the schools. The initative and resourcefulness and the wisdom and leadership that our schoo!s are inculcating in the youth of today are the answer of the problems of citizenship in the years ahead. ,{ 99 Yes, "bring me men to match my mounts ns. That is the need of our tirne+s and must come from the public school: schools that are strong in virtues required for building strong men and women. We can be assured of this and do our part in under- standing and helping the public schools to fulfill their oMi. gation to our times by being a participant in the annual Public School Week, March 1 through March 5.1965. Schools will ho!d open house; accept their hospitality, and you v:ill enjoy the experience of going back to school -- if but for a day.
