The public school of this place is draw ing nigh a close, only one week yet re mains of the long nine months session*, and it is to be spent in giving state ex aminations for promotion in the grades and to high school. The pupils are possessed with a feeling of gladness mingled with sorrow. Jay because of vacation, and sorrow because of separa tion. Not only will the school children mourn the absence of their teacher but the community. Miss Lunquist, the teacher, has proved an able instructress, and an efficient community worker. During the two terms it is said that she has not been absent at a single club meeting, and has been a willing worker for its success and preslerVation. Each year since organization there has been a steady growth of the school, and this year many are the indications of ad vancement. The equipment, buildings and staadard of training have been im proved remarkably within the last twelve months. We of the Reservation have many things to worry about, but perhaps the one that should agitate us most is a public place of worship. It is said that there is not a church within thirty miles of our place where the sermons are de livered in English language. We are at our wits end to devise a way to keep the Sabbath. Some may point to Sun- 9I/I71&P lack a minister to put it on~foot and to arouse interest, and the result is many spend the day of rest at work because they prefer that to doing nothing, while others while away the day at idle games. We send missionaries to China Africa and other foreign countries, and maintain mission schools there at a vast expense and sacrifice. Some of our towns are overcrowded with churches one on every corner and many running in opposition to each other, but still our own back-woods settlements are neg lected. Surely some plan can be devised to better our condition. OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS OF SCHOOL DIST. NO. I. Extra Meeting May lti, 1916. Members present—Carter, Larson, Nun stedt and Monker, Clerk.
