E. L. Sellc, for 39 years "a teacher i:
the German Lutheran schools of -this
city,:' has handed in his resignation
which is to lake effect aa soon as his
successor, can be secured. Mr. Sellc
feels that his long service entitles
him to release from his duties.
Mr. Selle received his education nt
Fort Wayne, Ind., and at Addison.
111., at which places there are schools
of the German Lutheran synod. He
entered, school with the intention of
rutins .himself for teaching and his
Ions career in that fieid proves that
he succeeded. "He graduated from
the school at Addison in lSt; and be
gan teaching ' at Kendall vilfe, I'a.,
where 'he remained a year and a half
before taking another position as a
teacher in a school at Defiance, Ohio.
A little over a year was spent, there
and then he was called in ISO!) to this
city and given charge of the German

were then known as Pleasant and
Denver streets, which aie now Thir

street was built in ISS.j. The school
then numbered about firi, taking in all

city. ' Since" his coming two more
schools lrave been added ne on
Eight'.i street and Eighth avenue and
the other on Thirty-sixth street and

teaching at Fieeport, 111. ' . '
Mr. -Selle when he retires from
active life will remain at home with
one of his daughters at 1815 Eigh

about a year agq has been the direct
cause of the instructor's desire to re
