The Board of Education Met Last Night
Night and Selected Teachers for
the Coming Year.
The board of education met in reg

might come before it. Two of the
most faithful members of the board
retired Messrs. I G. Fricke and

Roberts and II. M. Soennichsen, who
were recently elected to take their
places. Mr. Fricke has served nine
consecutive years on the board, and
Mr. Dodge seven, and their services
have been very valuable and it was
with a feeling of deep regret that
members who have served with the
retiring gentlemen were compelled to
part with them. But with their many
years of service they felt that they
had done their share in looking after
the interests of the public schools of
tbe city. While these gentlemen have
proved most faithful to the trust re
posed in them, the Journal believes
that their places will be as equally
well filled by Messrs. Soennichsen and
