^,t^f$?S! 4-Algoha Upper Das Matnii Tuesday, April 6, 194ft Tribute To Rural Teacher By Mrs. Wfkriin Bucket When reading of teachers most remembered in a recent edition 1 didn't notice any rural teachers mentioned and I felt this was an opportunity to write about a former rural school teacher, the late Ruth Fraser. I have, always had a desire to write a tribute to her. ' Ruth was one of Kossuth's best rural teachers, for many years. She walked many miles over all kinds of roads, in rain, and in blizzards, as well as sunshine, during those years; Arriving at a cold shcool room in the winter months, she built her own fires and had the building warm, for the pupils, and greeted each with a pleasant "good-morning". Ruth-left the school in good, clean order with desks washed and everything in place every evening, usually working until six o'clock. She often took the curtains home and laundered them herself. Ruth did all this her very last term of school, when ill herself, but never complaining. She was as honest as "Old Abe" himself. She was patient, conscientious and a very best teacner to many in the county, I am sure you Would find, if rural people were contacted. She was not my teacher but taught a daughter in the first grade, a son in the eighth and a son in the sixth grade. Ruth did more for more children during those first eight years of their schooling than others realize or give her credit for. But she and her splendid way of teaching are still fresh, in her pupils' memories. Want Ads.
