The problem forming the basis of this study has to do with an analysis of the degree of utilization of the community resources in the educational programs of the independent school districts of Wise County, Texas, for the purpose of determining how adequately these resources are being utilized by the schools for the enrichment of their curricula to the end that pupils may be released into their respective communities well-prepared to assume the duties and responsibilities of efficient, functioning citizens.
The major purpose of the study is to reveal, by means of comparison, the extent to which the Town Group of pupils and the School Bus Group of pupils of the elementary grades (fourth to seventh inclusive) of the Decatur, Texas, Public School are adjusting to the problems and conditions which confront them in the Decatur school and community, and the extent to which they are developing a normal, happy, and socially effective personality.
The nature of this problem divides itself into two parts, that is, a study of the old sewage plants in operation through the summer of 1947 and a study of the new plant put in operation during the fall of the same year.

More than five million American farms lacked electric service. "--leaf 50.
