also refer to the state engineering

The resignation of Miss ltoso B.

Count high school was accepted by
the high 'school board this week to
take effect Immediately. Miss John
sou plans to return to her homo In
Portland by way of Wray'a stugo
(living "unsatisfactory conditions"
as her reason, Miss Kose K. Johnson
filed her resignation from the start
of the high school with ttlti board,
and at a called meeting, it was de
cided to accept. Tills will leave tho
high school temporarily without an
Instructor lu music und art, and un
less word Is received soon, part of tho
cour.-o nt least will be dropped from
County Hchool Superintendent
Clark wired Immediately upon tho ac
ceptance of Miss Johnson's resigna
tion for an Instructor to fill tho
vacancy, Most recent advices from
her office were to the effect that no
answer had as yet been received.
It Is quite probable that a further
change may be made In the courseti
offered at the high school, as an
effort Is being made to add manual
training mid athletics. A local young
man, who Is considered well qualified
for the position, has agreed to accept
the position. The matter will bo
brought before a board meellnr; at
the court house this afternoon, at
which time changes in the curriculum
will he discussed,
"There Is no qurstlou that tho
addition of manual training ami ath
letics will be of great benefit to tho
pupils In the high school," said Supt.
Clark In an Interview yesterday. "Wo
have learned of a young man of thLi
city who Is well qualified to t&ka
charge of these courses, and aro
pretty sure we can get his services.
He Is employed at present, and tho
board will have to make It worth hln
while to come to the school.
"Mr. Hughes Is ready to continue
vocal Instruction," Mrs. Clark con
tinued, "and may also add instruc
tion in agriculture."
