just as cotton is the foundation ot the econ-
omy ot Clarksdale and the Mississippi Delta,
our public school system is the foundation of
the future of our community.
Both the cultivation of cotton and the cultiva-
tion ot good citizens require patience, care, and
unwavering attention to the job-plus the fer-
vent prayers of cultivator.
The progress of Cllarksdale in the next dec-
ade will depend largely upon what kind of
citizens come out of our schools. lt will depend
upon the mental, physical, moral, and cultural
training our boys and girls receive there. And
it will depend upon the facilities provided by
a community which stakes its future on its
young men and women.
Behind every bumper crop are good seed,
rich soil, favorable weather, expert knowledge,
and the money to supply proper cultivation.
And behind every bumper crop of good citi-
zens graduated from our schools are wise and
intelligent instructors, a well-rounded course of
studies, adequate facilities, and a balanced ex-
tracurricular program--all backed bv the fi-
nancial support so necessary to make all this
In the succeeding pages we shall attempt to
show that making a good cotton crop and rais-
ing a crop of good citizens are two enterprises
which have many things in common.
