TflE NUKTII AUAMS EVENING TRANSCRIPT, FRIDAY, JUNE S3, 1933 PACK ELKVEn ADAMS NEWS SECTION MRS. A. S. HOLMES TO LEAVE SCHOOLS 'Alter Teaching Career of 40 Years PIANO RECITAL PLEASES AUDIENCE IN THIS TOWN Recognized as Math ematics Tdacher of Ability — Departure Regretted by Associates With the closing of schools In Ad- kms today, Mrs. Angle 8. Holmes, a member ol the Adams high school faculty who 1* retiring, will have completed a period of more than 40 yean In the local school, although her teaching career has not been consecutive, being Interrupted for a number of years because of her marriage to the late Dr. Harry B. Holmes, one of the town's meet prominent physicians. Mil. Holme* was Miss Angle Sayles, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Charles P. Sayles, who were members of prominent Adams families. After graduating from Adams high school, Mrs. Holmes studied for four years at what 1* now Brldgewater State Teachers' college, then known as Bridge water Normal School. She returned to Adams upon completing her course and became a member of the high school faculty and continued to teach until her marriage to Dr. Holmes. Fifteen years ago, In answer to an urgent call for substitute teachers, Mrs. Holmes consented to return to her former duties and has since then continued to teach, serving In both the senior and Junior high schools, since the latter Institution was erect- td in 1924. Mrs. Holmes U widely recognized throughout Western Massachusetts as a mathematics teacher of unusual ability. Although mathematics has been the subject to which she has devoted most of her time, she has also taught other subjects and In each has displayed n depth of knowledge and familiarity with the subject which has proved of great value to the students In her classes. One of the cardinal rules In Mrs. Holmes' class was accuracy and efficiency, but above ell nealness. Students found her ever ready to assist them with their problems and she has often spent hours of her own time In an endeavor to help some of the students to remain on an even basis with others In their class. Besides her activities as a teacher, Mrs. Holmes In recent years has assumed charge of the Junior Red Cross work In the local schools and has made an excellent record In this work. It was not an uncommon sight on evenings to finrl a group of students assembled at her home which for years was almost adjoining the high school on Liberty street, engaged In some useful work as knitting or sewing with Mrs. Holmes going from one to the other of the groups to help them with their work. Her Influence in the school life of Adams was far greater than one would realize unless he or she were in contact with Mrs. Holmes or the students under Wer Immediate supervision and her retiring Is a matter of keen regret to those who have been familiar with her work as a teacher, Presented by Pupil* Leo R. SanSoucie of Piano pupils of Leo R. SanSoucie presented an especially pleasing program at an annual recital held in Notre Dame auditorium last night. The recital was largely attended and the manner in which the various, selections were rendered elicited well deserved applause and merited praise for the pupils as well as reflecting considerable credit upon the ability of their instructor, Mr. SanSoucie.

An attractive program has been arranged by the committee In charge and refreshments will be served. That the cost of maintaining the Wtlliamstown public schools in ac tive session under the prevailing bud get averages approximately $7,000 month. Is revealed In a statement Is sued today by the chairman of the school committee. Dr. E. Herber Botsford, in which he reviews th< committee's work from the time 1 took office last February down to the present. The statement was prepared by Dr. Botsford for the purpose of giving the townspeople some Idea 01 what the committee has accomplished and Is accomplishing. In behal of the 'committee as u whole, Dr Botsford pays tribute to Superintendent of Schools Francis V. Grant and the entire teaching corps "for their hearty co-operation and consideration during a period of great difficulty." Dr. Bolsford's statement Is as follows: In February the citizens of Wll- liainstown elected an enlarged school committee of five members and at the same time cut down the appro- j priatlon for schools from about J90 | 000 to $73.000. The taslf that con- I fronted the new committee was complex and difficult. At the close I of the academic year, It Is fitting that a brief summary of the work of the school committee be submitted to the citizens and voters. The first task that confronted the comm|:ee was a study of the bud- f!Ct for the year, Item by Item. With the valuable assistance of Superintendent Grant, the committee arrived at a budget which would make It possible to continue the efficient organization of the schools without the dismissal of a single teacher. Every Item was pared doVn to the limit. The teachers were asked to waive 10 per cent, of their salaries, leaving the established salary schedule unchanged. This they did with excellent spirit. As the year progressed, the expense account was checked regularly. At the last meeting, in June, slightly over. $40,000 had been spent, covering six months of school operation. This leaves $33,000 for the balance^of the year, with two months of V!\p;ition and four months of operation to come. It costs approximately $7.000 per month to run the schools during active session. It will readily be seen that only about $5.000 is available for summer repairs, summer salaries (two Janitors and a few officials are paid monthly throughout the year), and uncharted expense. It will require the closest scrutiny of every Item to keep the total of the year within the limit of the appropriation and with a decided saving of expense to the town. At the same time It was decided to abandon the so-called "special opportunity class" and establish an un- graded division for the purpose of adjusting grade difficulties for a 1 large group of pupils—a tutorial section lor the benefit of all grades. This will be tried out In the fall as a practical experiment. With the new year. Mr. Grant will concentrate his efforts upon the work of the superintendent, with more time, consequently, to devote to the problems of the grades. John B. Clark will become principal of the high school. The committee believes that this separation of the two offices will tend to greater efficiency in each department. The committee wishes to commend Superintendent Grant and the en- lire corps of teachers for their hearty co-operation and consideration during a period of great difficulty. The splended class graduated In June Is the best test of the efficiency of the schools. Problems of discipline and order which have come to the attention of the committee have been few. The reputation of the schools depends upon the maintenance of kindly but strict discipline and the inculcation of "good citizen" habits and morals. The committee members propose to give more time to visiting the different rooms during the next school year. In order to observe at first hand the actual working conditions. E. Herbert Botsford. chairman. Willlamstown School Committee. HEARING DATE IS LISTED BY BOARD County C o m m i s sioners Will Take Formal Action on Abandonment of Moody Bridge Next Month. INVITES CHILDREN TO ATTEND CHURCH Part of Regular Worship Will be Devoted to Young Folk • On the petition of the board of selectmen, the county commissioner* will hold a public hearing In the town offices on July 7th at 11 o'clock In the morning for the purpose of taking formal action on the proposed abandonment of Moody bridge In North street. Because the county Is to participate In the construction of the, viaduct that Is to supplant the bridge, such a hearing Is necessary. At the hearing which will be little more than a formality, the conditions that make the bridge and the neighboring Boston & Maine underpass one of the most dangerous traffic points In Western Massachusetts will be outlined before the commissioners. The board will then take a formal vote on the proposal that the span t}e abandoned. The hearing will be but another step In the many preliminaries that will have to be attended to before actual construction work gets underway. On Monday of next week the voters of the town will meet In special session to provide the money that has been designated as the town's contribution toward the cost of the viaduct, the bulk of which will be provided by the state with the railroad and county also contributing.

An examination of the large chimneys on the high school building revealed the need of rebuilding them and capping with metal. The Item Is large enough for competitive bidding and has been so advertised. A careful study of the station school situation showed two only of the four rooms, In use, with the possibility of closing the school for the next school year by the transfer of *c teachecs and pupils'to the cen- -ral plant. Such a transfer would be to the advantage of the pupils Local and Personal Mr. and Mrs. Alpheus Steele of South Williamstown are having charge of the gasoline filling station and store owned by Leonard Godfrey. The activities of the board of public welfare for the first half of the fiscal year were subject to a thoroughgoing discussion by Ihe town finance committee which met In special session last evening. Herbert H. Pattison, agent of the welfare board, was present to give an enlightening description of the situation. The meeting was entirely devoted to the forum; no action of any nature was lakcn. Welfare expense, It was brought out during the session, has been high since the flrst of the year and at present there Is no indication of an immediate decrease. The finance committee was most concerned with ways and means of relieving the situation. The committee devoted some time to a discussion of how more men could be put to work but no definite plan was adopted. The members expressed a hope that some of the men whose names now appear on the welfare list would find work on the viaduct consiructlon in North street, a project that will call for a considerable number of laborers. Rev. Gardiner M. Day, rector of St. John's church, has Invited the members of the church school, which closed for the summer last week, to attend the regular services with their parents. During the vacation period Rev. Mr. Day will tell a brief story during the services for their bcucfH. The children will be allowed lo leave the church during the livnin that precedes the sermon for adultf. At the school's commencement last week Rev. Mr. Day extended the invitation to the children with a reminder that Christian living and worship never ends. For the service the adult congregation and the school united for a shortened form of morn- tag prayer. Each of the school classes gave a recitation and in the older classes, individual recitations were given by Kathleen Bellows, May Wiles, Dorothy Wilson and Oscar Green. Prizes for faithfulness In attendance and work were awarded to: Ruth Richmond and Ralph Mason of the kindergarten, Myrtle Wiles and Jane Jauncey of the primary department and Barbara Holt, Prank Wiles, Arthur Holt, May Wiles nnd Oscar Green of the upper school. Sinclair Hart received honorable mention In the intermediate department. Rev. Mr. Day spoke with grent emphasis on the splendid and faithful service which the teachers had given to the church in so conscientiously devoting their time and effort to the task of instructing the children In the Christian way of life. He pointed out that In their hands lies the future of the church and to them the congregation could never adequately express Its appreciation. He then thanked the teachers on behalf of the parish and read their | names as a church honor roll. The teachers are Mrs. Laurence F. Lind ley, Mrs. Qulntard Leake, Miss Barbara Thomson, Miss Rosalie Blatchford, Alfred H. Holt, Mrs. Gardiner M. Day, Miss Gertrude Grant and William C. Cartwright, secretary and treasurer of the school. The rector preached a sermon on "The Way," which was particularly adapted for the occasion.
