100 YEARS AGO Sept. 20, 1912 The principals of the several white schools in Little Rock met with Superintendent R. C. Hall yesterday and arranged the details for the beginning of the manual training work of the grammar schools, Monday being the time set for the purpose. The pupils who will be taught are boys in the seventh and eighth grades and about one-half of the boys in the ninth grades. The pupils are required to attend the Manual Training Department one-fourth of a day each week. While the boys are being instructed at the Fort Steele school, the girls in the same grades will be taught sewing at their respective schools.
