Colleges New Era

Herald of Oct. 3, 1919

September 29 marked a new era in the educational history of Morrisons Cove for on this day was initiated the Morrisons Cove Vocational school–a school which fits the boys and girls for farm and home. Why not? When we think of the beautiful farms with untold possibilities. Parents, your boys and girls will be taught to see the gold mine in your farm. The first day’s session showed an enrollment of 93 pupils with numbers yet to report. We are safe in saying that our student body will number 100 before the week end.

The public is cordially invited to a festival to be held this Saturday evening by the Martinsburg High school. The festival will be held on the grounds of the borough school building, and a parcels post sale and cake walks will be features of the evenings entertainment.

Prof. John Likens, ex-county Superintendent of the Blair county schools, now head of the School of Letters at the Huntingdon Reformatory, a brother of our townsman, H. H. Likens Sr., has 29 years service to the institution.
