Trustees Visit School
E. W. Lutz, N. E. Walker and
Harry G. Star.ton, members of the
Kendrick school board, visited the
school Tuesday morning and found
conditions verv satisafctory, al
though the primary grades and high
school are rather crowded with the
present teaching force. Miss Mc
Kinnon, primary teacher, has over
fifty pupils in her room and the
four year's high school course is be
ing handled bv three teachers count
ing the principal. This condition
is unavoidable, however, as it is
impossible to increase the teaching
force with the present available
funds. The members of the board
together with Prof. Morrison are
doing everything in their power to
keep down expenses with the least
amount ot injury to the efficiency
of'the school. Tne funds are limit
ed and the finances oi the school are
being handled accordingly.
