Twins Have Remarkable Record in Schools
Misses Corene and Lorene Baxter, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Baxter, who live 4 miles southeast of town, who receive their Bachelor of Arts degrees this week at Southeastern, have probably a record not equaled in school annals.
They have a perfect attendance from primary to college, not missing a day or being tardy.
The twin girls first went to Robinson school near home; then Caddo schools until graduation, at Murray College at Tishomingo two years, and at Southeastern two years.
Many elements were involved to accomplish this. First was a mother who took care of the home, provided proper and healthful food; then a father to provide necessities, conveyance in all sorts of weather, in rain, cold, heat, mud; then the girls willing to do their part. At any rate it was not mere chance that made this record.
