Rock Island high school for the last
year, has performed his duties to
the satisfaction of the members of
the board of education, was proven
last night when that body reelected
salary of $2,000 for the
year. This is an advance of $200,
Mr. Burton having received $1,800
for the last year. The increase is
a deserved recognition on the part
of the board of the efficiency of Mr.

board in the May meeting, the pres
ent corps of teachers was reelected.

For the last five years Miss Jack
son has ably instructed the upper
classes of the high school in the
study of English. Her resignation
from the local faculty will occasion
great regret among the students and
members of the alumni, as well as
the faculty. Miss Jackson has ac
cepted a position of like nature in
the Clinton high school. Miss Bear
has been on the high school faculty
but a year. Her plans for next year
have not been made known. Miss
Grace Hudson and Miss Bessie Olson
were elected to fill vacancies in the
grades. Without exception the heads

reelected. The supervisors and
