District and Mission
Schools Hold Exam
inations Last Week.
Durwg the past week examina
tions of pupils of both the District
and Mission schools were held at
the school building. At tbe dis
trict school the examination^ were
held under the auspices of Mrs.
E. J. Warren, Principal of the
school. The examinations of the
pupils of the Mission school were
distributed throughtout the Mis
sion school here, and the Waubun
and Callaway schools. The ex
aminations were held in accord
ance with State's order to hold the
eight's grade examinations in all
public schools in the state.
We learn that the results were
The following pupils of the
district school successfully passed
the examination and are now
eligible to attend high school any
where in the state:
James Dakota, Lucy Metelak,
Elenor Metelak, Anita Martin,
Marguerite Warren, Christine Sa
Following are the names of
those pupils of the Mission school
who successfully passed the ex
aminations and are eligible for
high school anywhere in the state
Marjorie Fairbanks, Avanell
Fairbanks, LeonaFairbanks, Ethel
Bellefeuille, Mary Anderson,
Mabel Starkey, Mabel Smith.
This is decided manifest evidence
of the superiority of the public
school system over the lax and
clumsy Indian educational policy
advocated by the Indian Bureau.
The large majority of the en
lightened and progressive people
of the reservation have voiced HE
TOMAHAWK'S advocacy of the pub
lic school system for the past sey
erval years. Our contentions -in
the past have always been in favor
of the public school system for
Indian children, and we have not
faltered in our opinion concerning
the superior merits of ^he public
sehool system ever the obselete
government boarding school sys
tem the latter being at best only
an alms-house proposition where
the pupils were given scant sup
ply of clothing, board and a place
to sleep in, with a very limited
amount of mental training as a
desert or side-issue and not ex
ceeding two and one-half hours
each day, with most of the erb
ployees thereof possessing a medi
ocre quality of intellectual training
but resting secure under cover of
the civil service blanket.

impressed with the substantial

pressed his deep regret that such
"splendid buildings were permit

the proposed closing down of the
village water system, Dr. Chesley
expressed tbe opinion that the
people of White Earth were fac
ing a "very serious problem,"
from a hygienic and sanitary point
of view that if the water system
were permitted to be closed by
the government it was probable
that a large majority of the village
population would have to resort to
slough water for the family sup
ply and as such places were the
natural breeding grounds of myri
ads of bugs and insects the con
sequence would be anything. but
beneficial to the sanitary condition
of the community.
