Woman's Club Members Vs.Girls in Senior Class in Spelling Bee, March 29, 1919

From The Daily Times, Wilson, N.C., March 29, 1919

Woman’s Club Won

In the very interesting spelling Bee at the Graded school last night between members of the Woman’s Club and members of the High school, the woman’s Club won, though the High school were not easy marks by any means.

Miss Hampton, one of the teachers, gave out the words and both sides demonstrated an excellent knowledge of their construction.

At the conclusion of 49 minutes of spelling, it was found that some 10 of the woman’s club had not been spelled down to about nine of the members of the Senior Class, who were left standing. The full number to start with was about 23 in the Senior class and 18 in the Woman’s club.

The number of words misspelled was the criterion to merit, the class missing 14 and the Club 4.
