of another car and there was not
sufficient room for the cars to pass.

June IS is the date for the annual
school election. C. S. Calkins has
been prevailed upon to run and
will probably not have any opposi
tion or at least shnuld not He has
been on the board the past three
years and has handled the position
as capably as anyone could have.
The only criticism heard was re
garding the gymnasium, the appear
ance of which is displeasing to
many, but Mr. Calkins was only one
member of a committee of five, each
of whom is equally culpable for the
error, which apparently consists of
having expended too great a sum
on the roof which does have the
appearance of a dairy barn and is
lacking in floor space for showers
and such facilities but, so be it.
Tis done and the keen interest Mr.
Calkins has taken in the school,
having attended every board meet
ing, should overbalance by far the
error of which Mr. Calkins was only

Rhea Creek Nutrition
Meeting Well Received
Miss Lucy Case, Extension Nutri
tion Specialist has just completed
the third of a series of meetings
held at the Rhea Creek Grange un
der the supervision of the County
Agent and the Home Economics
club of the Rhea Creek Grange.
These meeting were well attended
and much interest was shown by the
women of the community. At each
meeting a demonstration of some
kind was put on in which the ladies
helped prepare the dishes and each
aftrenoon Miss Case gave a talk on
subject that would help the house
wives in more systematic and scien
tific planning of meals and dishes.
Probably the most Important
thing to come out of these meet
ings was the appointment of three
ladies in each of the communities
to try and have hot lunches served
to all children not being able to go
home for a warm lunch each day.
The committees have been notified
and are planning the work at the
present time. Any other commun
ities desirous of this work on nu
trition or clothing especially, should
get in touch with the County Agent
immediately so that arrangements
may be made for scheduling such
meetings for next fall and winter.
