erage alary paid teachers in our one
rm.m rural ohool shows an increase
of $4.56 per teacher. All teacher?
en ployed were certified before the
opening of school bo that temporary
certificates were not prantd. School
boards were more careful in the se
lection of their teachers and witn
but few exceptions pupils passed
their examinations successfully.
A new school district was formed
last fall comprising 63 H sections,
valuation $397,030, census IS. This
district has not built a schoolhouse
yet, Pcpils are attending the Hepp
nr achool. In place of furnishing
transportation the pupils' board will
be paid by the district.
At Alpine, District No. 27, a hiph
school was orpanixed. The require
ments for a standard four year school
have been met and they are waiting
for the State Department to declaie
it a standard school. This will make
seven standard high schools and one
union high school which is also a
four year standard school.
Wa feel proud of the fact that
lleppner High was recognid by the
Northwest Association last spring,
making the 28th high school in the
state to meet its standard.
The Alpine school district was
bonded for $10,000. A two-room
building with basement has been
erected, one room will be used for
high school and one for the grade.
Part of the funds were used for
equipment, part for water and part
for converting the old building into

If it were possible to have a club
leader in each district after school
closes in the spring, or if we could
have a county club leader during the
vacation period results would be sat
isfactory. Boys and girls are enthu
siastic at the beginning of the school
term, but with no county fair and no
competent leaders throughout the
county, there is little incentive. Cred
it must be given our County Agent,
Mr. R. W. Morse, and Mr. R. B. Wil
cox for the effort made in this work
and for ita successful completion.
We lament the losa of our county
nurse. Neither the Red Cross nor
the county were in position to finance
the work longer hence we have been
without since November, 1923.
For several years we have been
UH' in O. S. T. A. membership and
we feel that we can contiue to be so.
We have a County Division of the O.
S. T. A. All the teachers in the coun
ty have been members of this divis
ion and we think this coming year will
be no exception.
For three years we have had a
Reading Circle Library in the county.
These books are loaned to the teach
ers free of charge.
Three local institutes were substi
tuted for the annual institute, the
first ore being in session at Heppner.
Schaol boards gave their teachers one
Fiuiay in October to attend. The
Otis Intelligence Test was given to
every teacher and later to every pu
pil attending school. The Hedrick
Hopper Test in Oregon History was
given to all eighth grade pupils, and
before school all pupils were given
the Woody-McCall Arithmetic Test
and the Monroe Reading Test.
The two other institutes were held
one at lone and the other at Board
man. The County Cnit Plan was the
mam topic at lone Our State Super-!
intendent, J. A. Churchill, was with
us at Board man which was most grat
ifying to the teachers present.
The County Unit Plan was placed
on the ballot at the time of the Pri
mary election, but failed to pass. We
feel, however, that the people will
try to leant more about the system
and perhaps in time will reahxe its
The outlook for this year is very
encouraging. With a splendid corps
of teachers, with an awakened inter
est in the members of school boards,
the tax payers and patrons, we feel
that the schools are fitting into the
needs of the communities and we are
sure the year will be a successful as
well s a prosperous one.
