Many Attending Night School For First "Introduction" To School Background Benefits
-------------------------------------
Barratt, Reynolds, Sulzberger Evening Schools carry Full Schedule of Alert Pupils
-------------------------------------
     WHEN the school bell rang for the opening of the fall term in September, hundreds of adults turned their steps toward the school doors and back into the classrooms for another school year.
     In Barratt, Reynolds, and Sulzberger Evening Schools, classes took on new life and vigor. Old students brought new ones with them, some of whome had never attended school a day in their lives but who at thirty, forty, and in many cases fifty or sixty years of age or over had decided to grasp this chance to help themselves learn the things they did not know, and to ddo the things they previously had been unable to do.
