D. 1 Hartman, 2426 Eighteenth ave
nue, on account of his borne being in
territory that has been annexed to the
city of Rock Island, has resigned as
school director in District No. 43. Mr.
Hartman says In his letter to Ernest
Hussey, clerk of the school board:
"Owing to the fact that the territory
in which I reside has, without ques
tion, become a part of the city of Rock
Island, and not desiring to act con
trary to the school laws by serving
aa a member of the school board, by
reason of this condition of affairs, I
hereby tender my resignation as a
member of such school board, to take
"My work with the school board has
been most pleasant, harmonious and
profitable, and it is with pride that 1
step out knowing that the past year
has been one of the most profitable
and prosperous school years In the
history of the district. It was always
my aim, in all my deliberations and
acts at our meetings, to place no ob
stacle in the way to prevent the school
from being one of the best In the coun
ty. I trust that your new director will
be inclined to have liberal ideas and
work In harmony with you."
Only one school will be maintained
this year In South Rock Island, be
cause, the children of the annexed ter
ritory will go to the city-schools. Miss
Bertha Edwards has been engaged to
teach the primary grades, while Miss

Commissioner Jonas Bear this morn

Witii the weather of today, thought
to be indicative of a mild tempera
ture within the next few days, how
ever, it is thought that Friday will be
O. K. for the opening.
But bathers of a superstitious belief
will wait until Saturday for their first
plunge at the new beach, evad'ng the
"Friday hoodoo." There will be no
fet program of events.
