Since we "began our work here In 1924, we have been asked many times by persons In various parts of the state end out of the state Just how we have done what we have in a community lite this, which is almost wholly rural, where the colored people own such little and apparently are illiterate and so indifferent to educational progress. Supervisors from the Department of Education in Texas and from Prairie View State College have visited us from time to time and have inquired "How did you do it?" Field agents from the General Education Board and the Plater Board have come to us several times and they always expressed themselves as agreeably surprised at our accomplishments and asked us to explain how we did it* Even our lovable local people who have been in the thickest of the fight, so to speak, and members of too teaching staff and members of the local Board of Education have asked how we did it. It Is the purpose of this study to make an effort, though a feeble one, to explain briefly how we did it The method used in this study has been to Interview old residents, both white and colored, and to make personal observations.
