SCHOOL DfSIBICTS IB HOLD ELEfllOHS This to the year for the election of school trustees in Nevada and all school districts are to hold elections. The Nevada Educational Bulltein says: "The public schools are among our greatest institutions, and the office of school trustees a very important one. The management of all local school matters rests entirely in the hands of the trustees, and the most competent, patriotic, and progressive cltltens in the district should be selected for places on the school boards in order to insure efficient management of the schools. "Even though there should be only two or three families in a school district, the trustees should be elect ed. The exercise of the franchise is one of our greatest privileges, and by voting the people of a community show commendable Interest in their local affairs. "Saturday, April 1, is the date of the election, and so district should fall to hold this election. Printed notices of the election to be posted by the school trustees will be sent out by the several deputy superintend ents. Again let it be urged that all school districts hold this election. "The first of the two sets of ele mentary examinations to determine promotion from the eighth grade to high school will be given from April 18 to 2J inclusive. The second and final examination will be given from May 23 to 26 inclusive. "As explained elsewhere in this bulletin in an article concerning pre liminary and final examinations, all pupils who are planning to complete the eighth grade this year or to com plete seventh-grade geography are to take this April examination. Only those who fail in certain of these ex aminations need take the second ex aminations in May. Teachers should study out carefully the proposed plan and explain the details to their child ren. Most of the pupils should satis fy the State examination require ments by reaching the required stand ard in the April examination, there after merely conducting their daily work in a satisfactory manner. Those who may fall in the first examination should center their energies particu larly on these weak subjects in prep aration for the May examinations."

God bless you. You have all been very nice to me. I’ve never been happier in my life. Boys. I have shot craps for $35,000 a roll and I was never in any greater suspense than when the jury returned to the courtroom. Did you see the poker faces they had on?” Asked by a cub reporter what he meant by "poker face,” Rickard said: "Why, you couldn’t read them. You couldn't tell what they had in mind.” Rickard then begged to be excused from further comment, stating that he was too overcome to talk more be night and asked one of his friends for a cigar, which he began smoking immediately. When he left the sher rilf’s office, police reserves and court attendants were summoned to kaep the crowd in check. He was given three cheers by the crowd as he stepped into his car to be taken home.
