School Districts Refuse to Consolidate
ALICE QUICK 1? CLERK
Mooting at St Helena Largely At
tended and Important Matters
The voters of School District No.
2, St. Helens and West St. Helens,
met at the John Gumm School house
last Monday night and took a vote
on the consolidation of this district
with District No. 39, being that
portion of the old Houlton district
which Is outside the city limits. The '
vote here resulted almost unanimous
ly In favor of consolidation. At the
same time the voters of District No.
39 also voted on the question and
the vote there. was almost unanimous
the other way, so that there will be
no consolidation of the two districts
for the present. At the meeting
In St. Helens Mr. Charles Graham,
of the firm of Perry & Graham, was
elected Director to serve three years
and Miss Alice Quick was elected
district clerk for one year. The re
port of the clerk for the past Tear
was read and some other matter)
dlsoussed but no action taken.
DlBrlct No. 2 now employs 13
teachers and It Is thought by the
directors that at least one and per
haps two more will necessary when
school opens In September.
