SOUTHAMPTON TOWNSHIP SCHOOL SETS RECORD
Harrisburg, December 1
The interest in perfect attendance in the public schools throughout the state is increasing, according to a statement today by Dr. James N. Rule, superintendent of public instruction. A number of schools are trying to establish perfect records.
During the past school year the twelve pupils enrolled in the Browning School, Southampton township, Bedford county, were neither absent nor tardy. This school is located in a sparcely settled community. Two children were required to walk one mile each way each day to attend school. All the others were required to walk one and seven eights miles or more each way each day. Six of them were required to travel two miles or more. The teacher of this school was Miss I. Grace Bennett.
