SCHOOL BOARD
ELECTS TEACHERS
Several New Pedatroirueo
Chosen to Replace
Vacancies
The school board met last evening
at the high school snd discussed sev
eral important matters and elected
five new teachers, to replace those
resigning.
The new teachers are as follows:
O. D. Byers, to take the place of Prof.
G. E. Finnerty, principal of junior
high; Oscar Williamson to take the
place of Mr. Byers, who was principal
at Madison; Miss Dove McGee to take
the place of Miss Margaret Riley in
the ith grade at Central; Miss Bertha
Golden, to replace Miss Romey Snea
ker st junior high; and Miss Marion
Stanford to take the place of Miss
Edna Converse. Miss Alta Armstrong
of Portland was also elected to take
the place of Miss Metcalf, who resign
ed some time ago.
The janitor at Madison school also
resigned last evening and a commit
tee was appointed to select a new one.
It was decided to open school the
3d of September, and Pmf. Boettich-
er would like for all studt nts to be on
hand the opening day. He gave as
his reason that the students coming
the opening day were given their
places; then later students coming in
might live nearer the school and
some several blocks away, and thev
often had to transfer students to the
different schools in order to accom
modate all, and this causes confusion.
The matter of military training
was brought tip and left to Professor
Boetticher to arrange a program for
drill.

Red Cross Extends Vote of
Appreciation
Appreciation was the keynote at the
Red Cross executive board meeting
last evening. The resignation or
Mrs. J. D. Summers as secretary of
the Linn county chapter was heard
with keen regret. As Mrs. Summers
is moving to Spokane to live, there
was no alternative but to accept. The
members of the board voted unani
mously to give Mrs. Summers in ap
preciation of her faithful service and
as a very partial remuneration, the
small sum of $50, hoping it will serve
as a tangible evidence of thanks for
her willing service.
Mrs. Ella Dunn was elected to fill
the office for the remainder of this
year.
A vote of thanks and appreciation
was extended to Mrs. Viola P. Frank
lin for her thoughtfulness in always
providing flowers or patriotic decora
tions for the desk at board meetings.
