No. 4, Known as the Schenck School Made "Superior School." ONE OP FOUR IN ALL OF IOWA State Inspector of Rural Schools At' tends Celebration of Event last Friday Evening. (By Rev. A. Wood). Wasn't it Russell Conwell in Ills lecture "Acres of Diamonds." who made the statement to an audience one evening, "Who knows, your fortune mav be right under your chin?" And a woman went home turning that phrase over In her mind and a few days later conceived the idea of the lever collar button which she patented, the income from the Idea making her Independently wealthy. Which goes to prove that we often overlook the thlnes of Importance, value and honor which are nearest to us because We are looking for them in a region of greater distance. -So it has been with the people of TJnion township for right in their midst there- has been conducted a tvpe of rural school which is one of but four in the state to have attained the designation "Superior School" from the state board of education. It was to celebrate 1 the conferring of this honor that a group of patrons and guests met under the auspices of the Parents and Teachers^ Association at the district school No. 4, (Schenck school) on last Friday evening. Thti meeting was presided over by Harry Ward, president and Miss Gertrude Sage, teacher. A program was then presented as follows: invocation Rev. Wood; song by pupils of the school, "Little White School in the Wood." County Superintendent Wm Shirley gave a "Chronological Review bf the History of the School." He pointed out that for seventy years Schools had stood on approximately this same bit of ground. The first school was erected in 1860 and was later replaced by a larger building. In September, 1894, this building was Dlown away In -a tornado which swept through this section doing much general damage and distributing portions of the school building and equipment through the woods northeast of the school site. (Harry Ward commented ,hat he searched for a vear for his old desk before he was able to locate it.) The building erected following this disaster stood for twenty-seven years but was destroyed by fire on December 23, 921. The present modern and up-to- date building followed. The school of .860 was the first school in the coun- ;y to be erected by a public tax levy although there was an earlier school built into the side hill of the Relb- hoff pasture in 1856 financed by pri- r ate subscription and which came to IB known as "Gopher. College." Sup J rintendent Shirley stated that since he inauguration of the system "of the tandardization of rural school District School No. 4 had rated standard evi iry year with the exception of the rear they were without a building fol- owlng the fire. During the period of leven years two other schools, No. 6 n Lincoln township and No. 7 In Whlt- emore township have also rated stan- lard for ten years. Union School No. is the only school in the county vhich has a higher rating than these, t having rated standard every year or the entire eleven. These four chools have received state aid in am- mnts as follows: Union No. 5. $736.75: .incoln, No. 6, $752.25; Whittemore No. , $771.07; Union No. 4 $840.50. The amounts allotted to each school is det- rmined by character of work beine lone and number of pupils in the chool. Following this talk five girls of the chool presented a candle light drill endition of "America, the Beautiful." Mrs. Alfred Schenck. director, was hen introduced by Mr. Ward with vords of appreciation of her devoted nd constructive work in aidine the chool to attain the "Superior" rat- ng. She gave an interesting talk in hich facts presented by Superintend- nt Shirley were supplemented by fur- her interesting item? and in which he affirmed that the school had at- ainecl the high place in which it stood hrough the cooperative effort and the igh standards of patrons, pupils and eachers. A presentation of a group song by jupils of the school was followed by Miss Sage with a practical and inter- sting paper on "Why Parents Should /isit School." Points comprised were: o become acquainted with conditions mder which their children are taueht o advise and encouraee the teacher and to observe their children at play and work with other children of their own age. The conclusion of the procrram came vith the address of Miss Jessie Parker of Lake Mills and Des Moines. state nspector of rural schools. This address.,was highly inspirational and revealed the speaker to be thoroughly conversant with her work. She explained the basis on which ratine of 'Superior" school Is made as: eood >uiU]ing, properly lighted and heated; eacher of outstanding rating: instructional equipment of higher rating; community cooperation; good grades iy pupils. She commented that there nad been no eighth grade failures of the pupils in this school during the present teacher's administration. Miss Parker commented with approval on the work being done by rural schools despite the adverse criticism of some educators. She pointed out: that there is an opportunity for individual attention to and treatment of the nu- pil, lack of which is now beine pointed out as the weakness of high schoo! and college by many educational critics; deals with boys and girls who are trained in bearing responsibilities in their every day life. She told of a county commencement program for honor student representing about an usual number of pupils from town and country. Four out of five of the contestants on the program came from the country. At the close of her talk. Miss Parker presented the school with a bronze tablet to be placed on the building to signify their new rating. There followed a social period during which refreshments were served to the fortv guests present. Pee Wee Mountain Named Mt. She-Ha«ta. Mrs. Irving Urch won the flv^ dollar prize for the oest name f^r the miniature mountain at the Pee Wee golf course. Her name was 'Mt. She- Hasta" taken from Mt. Shasta and the fact that to play the hole on which the mountain Is the hazard, the ball has to go through the mountain. Mr. Kllllan, one of the proprietors of the course, constructed the mountain himself and it Is one o' the most clever hazards on any of the indoor courses. Swea City Doctor is Critically 111.

Manning, once lieutenant governor of Iowa, who advocated so strongly years ago a school house on every hill and no.saloon in the valley. Mr. Bennett thinks this well known prohibition saying might now be fittingly changed to a bootlegger on every hill and a large still in every valley. Times and conditions have changed. Attend Will H.
