HOUSE PARTY HELD AT MARION COUNTY SCHOOLS
UP TO STANDARD
THE L A. DARBY HOME
Friday, March 10. being a n ideal
day, there was a crowd o f more than
four hundred people in attendance » t
the citizen’s community meeting held
at the Cole school building. Six dis
tricts w e r e represented; v i z : ML
Pleasant, teacher, Miss Miles; Kings
ton, teacher, Miss Ruth Fuaon; Queen-
er, teacher, Mrs. Smith; shclburn,
teacher, Mrs. Wm. Hirons; DiaL 66,
teacher, Wm. Miller; and Cole School,
W. H. Fuson, teacher.
The various schools furnished decla
mations, songs and class drills; and tha
able manner in which they were ren
dered showed careful preparation on
the part o f teachers and pupils.
The speakers present were: Co.Judge
D. B. McKnight, Co. School Supt. W.
L. Jackson, Ass’ L SupL Jos. Benner,
C. C. Wade, who represented Dr. A.
G. Prill m interest o f the Linn Co.
Fair, and Mr. C. M. Kendall who ap
peared upon the stage several times
and gave some excellent and comic
The speeches were interesting a id
instructive and we feel that much goed
may be derived therefrom.
Several High School pupils o f Stay-
ton were excused from their work that
they might attend this rally.
T h e following committee to take
charge o f the dinner, was appointed:
Mrs. H. Shank, Mrs. C. E. Chrisman,
Mrs. Chas. Bates, Mrs. M. M. Meiser,
Mrs. Howard Montgomery and Mr*.
Two tables, each about thirty-two
feet long, were arranged on the school
ground and both wtre filled with such
delicious edibles that would tempt the
most delicate appetite.
A fter all had
eaten and were filled, there remained
enough to feed another four hundred.
The noon houi was spent in a very
pleasant and sociable manner.
The following schools, Queener, Cole
and Sbelburn, having completed ill re
quirements, were standardized.
A fter completing the program the
crowd dispersed, all seeming to feel
that the meeting had been a compiete
success, and that they were well com
pensated for their efforts.
We hope that there may be more
such gatherings in the future.
