THURSDAY, MARCH 28, •THE HAWAttPBN tKPEPENDENT 5TON AND t Items Gathered Expressly For The Independent team, her encouragement early years with meager New School Board, Organized fonday evening the old board of ition held their final meeting to Ssh up all the old business. All nbers with the exception of H. H. fcks were present, he being out of i. Outside a few routine items and allowance of some bills the old bard was well cleared. After the transactions the two newly lected members of the board, Mrs. label Richardson and B. T. Bay, took be oath of office administered by president Bendixen. The final adjourn- nent was made. With this final act memories. ro members, C. C. Cooper, who has Urved three years, and H, H. Braaks, ?ho has served nine years, severed ^ their connection with the board. The work they did or helped to do stands as a credit to the district as well as to the men as they gave much of their > valuable time and thought with no remuneration except to know that they did their duty as they saw it. Both men have been intensely interested in • the school and Ireton has been their * home practically all their lives. The new board convened soon after t the adjournment of the old. Dr. Ben- other relatives, dixen was named temporary chairman.-After the temporary organization was made ballots were cast for the permanent presidency and Dr. man Degen. Bendixen was again honored. B. T. Bay was elected vice chairman. Discussions were held onjurgent school matters. The election of a superintendent was taken up next and H. P. Main was re-elected by a unanimous vote with an increase of salary. Cornelius Landhuis also received all the votes for re-election as principal with a small salary increase. Other teachers elected and receiving every vote of the board were Ellen Anderson, home economics; Clarice Anderson, commercial; Barbara Melson, English; Harriet Miller, 7th and 8th grades; Carol Knipe, 5th and 6th grades; Laura Peterson, 3rd and 4th grades', Helen Cole, 1st and 2nd grades. Miss Cole made it known to the board that she would not accept as she does not intend to remain in Ireton another year. There are several adjustments to be made in the salaries of the grade as well as some high school teachers, which will be done at the regular meeting of the board the first Monday in April. Accoring to the above actions there remains to be elected a music instructor,1st and 2nd grade teacher end the position of coach is left open until Mr. Hammans make his position clear. It was a meeting of complete harmony. It was a new experience to have a woman member present as this was the first time in the history of the board. Death of Mrs. Van BasWrk In the passing of Mrs. Frank V&n Bnskirk Sr. in Sioux City last Friday evening the writer lost a friend of years' standing. In the year 1901, when rural delivery service was started from Ireton and the writer was one of the starting carriers, the Van Bns- kirk family was one of the prominent families on his route. Mrs. Van Buskirk's outstanding friendliness and good will, her standing invitation to the carrier for meals and, feed for in those pay, her genial and well meant attitudes are some of the things that can't be forgotten after serving her as carrier for 32 years and even the years in retirement have only added to the cherished Attended Funeral at Mankato II. H. Braaks, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Gronemeyer, Mr. and Mrs. Gene Gabel, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Popken, Mr. and Mrs. A.

Although not as severe as in some years, yet it seems to sap the strength and vitality and leaves the convalescents in a very weakened condition. So far there have been no fatalties to be noted. A continued change in weather will undoubtedly bring an end to this unwelcome visitor. ST. JOHN LUTHERAN CHURCH H. W. Berner, Pastor Divine services at 10:30 a. m. Sunday school at 9:30 a. m.

Spring Officially Arrives Getting Ready for Spring Work Farmers are making the best of the fine weather and machinery is getting a going-over and a few of the daring ones are already in the field. Temperatures Tuesday were at summer heat, 81, with only one place on the weather map higher. Omaha had 82. Buds are swelling and vegetation is showing above ground. Mrs. E. R.

Tuesday spring arrived officially but real spring days came even earlier. Sunday and Monday were ideal spring days and everyone seemed to breathe in the wonderful clear air and enjoy the sunshine as well as the song of the birls.

Mr. and Mrs. Orville Vlotho, Miss Bernice Dittmer and Harold Twillman went to Sioux City Saturday and vis- Quite a delegation of fans from Sioux county attended the state basketball tournament in DCS Moines last week to see Newkirk play in the state tournament. Although Newkirk was defeated by Mason City by one basket, the Newkirk team was one of the most popular teams that took part in the tournament. We believe that Newkirk was a better team than Mason City and had it not been that they were recovering from the flu, it is our opinion that, they would have easily won their first game. After Newkirk lost out in the tournament they went to the state house where Senator Hocven and Representative Van Oostcrhout introduced them to Governor George Wilson, presented them to the House of Representatives and the Senate, and showed them about the state capitol. We are sure this trip was of great value to the Newkirk community and will be long remembered by not only the boys from Newkirk but by the rest of the* state. Supt. Ver Huel and the Newkirk community deserve praise for the splendid showing they made in Des Moines, both on the court and in the city. Eason presiding. The meeting was opened with community singing. After the business meeting a playlet was given by the young people of the district. Donald Wilde sang several selections. Miss Myrene Detloff spoke on "Good Literature for Boys and Girls," which was followed by informal discussion of the topic. A light lunch was served by the women of the district. The committee in charge of the meeting consisted of Mrs. Frank Schlesser, Miss Elizabeth Schlesser and Mr. Joe Plendl. The old school house in Dist. No. 2, East Orange township, will be sold at public auction on Monday, April 3. It is located two miles west of Granville. This office acknowledges receipt of the first copy of the Orange City Oracle, a very attractive and newsy school paper put out by the Orange City high school. Interesting items of the many and varied activities convince us of the busy life led by teachers and pupils. The 16-page paper is proof of this. We noticed with interest that Mr. Lawrence Van Wyk of Orange City, a former pupil in the high school and now a student at St. Olaf's, is doing his practice teaching in school music in the Orange City school. The glee club broadcast, carnival, athletic activities and many others inform parents very specifically what the school offers to their children. Thanks for tho paper.
