Description: 

Chick and Aleck are the same age, but in the segregated world of Yoknapatawpha they attend different schools. Chick presumably goes to the "High School" that is mentioned as the site of the "[base]ball game" he is returning from when he first hears about Lucas and Vinson Gowrie (26-27); Gavin mentions the "Negro school" that Aleck attends (126). Due to concern about the possible lynching, both schools are closed on the novel's Monday. There is no indication how far apart the schools are or where either is located, so our decision to combine them into this one Location is doubly speculative.
