IOWA COUNTY DEMOCRAT. THE HIGH SCHOOL Another Teacher to be Added to the Faculty Next Semester. CHRISTMAS EXERCISES In the tirades and the High School on Friday Afternoon, Dec. 18. School closes Friday evening for the Christmas vacation of two weeks. Mr. Adolph Appel has donated to the school several volumes of the U. S. Geological Survey. The grades are preparing Christmas exercises for Friday afternoon. Par ents and others interested in the schools will be welcome. The Board of Education recently decided to place an extra teacher in the High school at the middle of the year. This action has been under contemplation for some time. The classes are so large that in many cases teachers cannot do their best work and the pupils are at a great disadvantage. The University inspectors have for the past two years urged the addition of another teacher, saying that it had been agreed by the Northwestern asso ciation of colleges and universities not to continue to accredit high schools whose enrollment was more than 30 for every teacher in the high school. If the university had dropped us from their accredited list our gradu ates would have been obliged to take the enterance examinations if they wished to go away to school; but more than this, such action on the part of the university might have caused the State Superintendent to drop us from the “Free High School” list, which would have deprived us of our state aid and would have made it impossible for us to collect the tuition of the high school pupils from the towns. With this additional help we shall be able to do as well for the pupils as any of the schools can do, and we shall expect a much larger number from the surrounding towns. In order to determine how we stood in comparison with other schools in A BANK FOR ALL THE PEOPLE. There are some people in every community who think that banks were made for the rich. If you are one of the misinformed who have thought, let us again emphasize the fact that ours is a bank FOR THE'PEOPLE. Why not make a Xmas present by starting a saving account with one dollar or more. Begin to save and stick to it, or start someone else. Mineral Point, Wis. lowa County Bank.
