One of the bright, ambitious and growing young men of Van Zandt county is Prof. Hale. For a better account of the family record we refer to sketch of his father in this issue of The Southland. Prof. Hale was born October 17, 1878, in Village Springs, Ala., but his father moved to Van Zandt county in 1879, when he was one year of age. He was educated in the Canton High School, being reared in the country home near to that excellent little city. His father is a farmer and an expert in raising ribbon sugar cane, and lives in comfort on his cane farm. Prof. Hale also attended school in the Denton Normal, he took a business course in Gainesville Business College under our friend of long ago, Prof. Penn Selvidge. Prof. Hale is a teacher, beginning this profession in 1898. Is a member of the Baptist Church, is exemplary in his walk, and is honored and loved by a wide circle of the best people of the county. He is in love with his county and full believes that a young man may have a good future here as anywhere.
