To Be Here in April for a Meeting
of Western Drawing Asso-1-
PLANS rOS THEIR . EJTEKTAIBMENT
Committees are Appointed and
; Made. "
The burning of the high school
building has deprived the teachers of
the city of the place wherein the
meeting of the Western Drawing
Teachers1 - association was to have
been held in April; and renders the
choice of other quarters necessary.
The fire also destroyed all the best
work of the drawing classes of the
various schools which the drawing
teacher. Miss Abbie Dean, .had . col
lected and was engaged in mounting
at the high school, fn spite of all
discouragements those in charge of
the arrangements for the accommoda
tlon and entertainment of the associa
tion are going ahead as though noth
ing had happened, and the visitors
will be amply cared for. Miss Dean
will make another collection of the
sWork of the drawing classes, and she
is confident Rock Island will hold its
own in the exhibition.
