The Blackfoot School.
School began Tuesday with an attend
ance of 416 pupils. Some of the primary
grades were not filled as was expected,
owing perhaps to the fact that people
living on the west side did not under
stand that pupils from there were to be
admitted in the afternoons at the east
side school. Those living on the east
side have their sessions in the forenoon
and those from the west side use the
rooms in the afternoon. There has been
a conspicuous absence of little folks
from the Irving side, and they should
not wait for the completion of the new
building.
The seniors put up a new appearance
this year, there being four boys and two
girls, as follows: Mabel Pettibone, Min
nie Kinney, Richard Stevens, Harry
Kinney, Wendall Gagon and Ernest
Kirkpatrick. The juniors also have a
majority of boys; Violet Gray, Lucy
Bond, Albert Whitten, Percy Stewart
and Orr Chapman.
All departments are under the direc
tion of Prof. Chas. Johnson, with Prof.
Melton and Miss Gillespie in charge of
