assisted the motor by applying a pipe

Parents have a right to know what
is transpiring in our schools. We
endeavor to get the news of school
activities each week and publish
them for the edification of those
parents who have children in school.
It is up to the teachers to supply the
news. Prof. Nagel has religiously
attended to that end of the matter,
but he must have the cooperation of
the other teachers. When a week is
missed the parents are not informed
what is going on at school. We ask
that all teachers, if they care to have
the activities of their departments
published, supply such to Mr. Nagel
to the end that due publicity may be
given in The Time

their persuasive powers as auction

not buy a box will indeed be beyond
the blandishments of those well
known "criers." The social will oe
