DENNY SAYS HE'S OLDEST CHILDRESS HIGH SCHOOL GRAD PRESIDENT -oOo- E. H. Denny claims to be the oldest graduate of Childrpss High School because although he grad- uated with the third class from that school in 1896. he was 24 years of age at the time. Denny says that most of the graduates then were older than they are now because many of them could not attend school reg- ularly due to the lack of trans- portation to schools for the stu- dents who did not live close to them. Most of them got their ed- ucation mainly at home, and the degree of that was dependent on what the parents wanted to teach the children from their own know- ledge rather than what they wan- ted to learn. The education Denny had when he entered high school was gain- ed at home and during about two eight-month sessions at a regular school. Walter Steward, also of class, was ei...

An article in The Index of May 5, 1899, made note of this condition, and allow- ed Editor L. E. Haskett to offer some advice). " The Omaha grocery peddlers dis- tributed a carload of groceries and patent medicines in Childress this week, and we are sorry to say that some of our most substanti- al and enterprising farmers patro- nized the concern.
