Outside view of the Mill School at the Merrimack Mills, tucked away upstairs over the store. Equipped with antique, dilapidated benches and chairs. The lessons begin at 6 [?] A.M. and last for six hours, and these children who attend in the morning go into the mill in the afternoon and vice versa for the required eight weeks, which the law specifies. Taking everything into consideration it shows what a travesty vocational guidance may become, and is in itself the best example of Dotheboys Hall I have ever seen, except that it is not half so practical as was Squeer's school.

Smith & Weeks

Bailey -- Smith -- Weeks

Sanford Cotton Mill. Accident case. Carl Thornburg a 12 year old boy who went to work at 11. A few weeks ago he caught his arm in the "lapper" machine, and broke it in 2 places. He said: "I sure didn't mean to. Was jus goin through the lapper room an fust thing I knew everything went black." The family is hard-up. Father is a paralytic. Here is a real chance for a mill to do a benevolent deed by making some recompense to this crippled boy and his paralytic father. They think it's charity to give a boy work under legal age, but when he is injured they forget that side of it. No suggestion of any kind of recompense has been heard. Jim Browning said he was 12 years old, but that is doubtful. Has worked 6 months here; gets 50 cents a day. Is in the 2nd grade at school. Location: Sanford, North Carolina.

Rural Accident. Four weeks after the accident Clinton was using his remaining hand to help in the farm work as best he could. His mother said: "Now we will have to educate him." See Hine Report, August 1915.

[Three adults and six children from seven years to twelve years hard at work on a sugar beet farm near Greeley Colorado. The father said: "The children can thin the beets better than grown ups. We all work fourteen hours a day at times because when the beets is ready they has to be done. About twelve weeks is about all the children can work on thinning and topping.

Williams School - Brush, Colo. 7 children present out of 30 or 40 that are expected when beet work is over. It is Oct. 27, seven weeks after school opened. The school is well equipped, the teacher has a degree (A.B.) and one other teacher in this district (out of five rural teachers) also has the same degree. Salaries run from $65 to $75 a month, 9 mos. school. The tremendous loss of schooling in these Colorado schools seems all the more wasteful when we see the good facilities read for the children's use. Location: Brush, Colorado / Photo by Hine.
