County Superintendent L. H.
Currier went down to Austin
Saturday night and addressed the
patrons of school districts Nos. 2,
19. and 28, on the subject of con
solidation. The meeting was well
attended, there being a good repre
sentation from each district.
The proposition is to consolidate
the above three districts and ex
tend the course of study to include
the 10th grade.
“Three points," said Professor
Currier, "were to be considered.
Transportation, efficiency ami ex
l>ense. The first of these, the
transportation, is practically elimi
nated, as no child in the district
would be over two miles from the
proposed school. Of the second
item, efficiency, there can be no
question but that better and more
uniform results can be accom
plished by the consolidation."
In regard to the exjtense, Pro
fessor Currier asked those in at
tendance to freely express their
sentiments in regard to the ex
pense of the consolidation, and
many responded, the sentiment
being unanimously in favor of the
One speaker said that although
he had no children, he was much
interested in the project and
thought that the exj«ense should
be most cheerfully borne by the
taxpayers of the district as the
question of efficiency should come
before exjiense.
About the only expense in con
nection with the consolidation will
be the purchase of a site and the
erection of a building, after which
the maintenance expense will un
doubtedly be considerably de
; creased.'
I hereby retract th« statement.
I made by me, on the streets oi
Rockville, Nebraska, that during
the night of dune 20th. 1915. Mr.
dohn F. Kosch and Mr. R. E.
Koseh, purloined three sacks of
flour, from the premises of Mr.
dohn Sobejewski.
I know that said statement was
false and unfounded and take this
means of righting the wrong I
have done the above parties.

M rs. E. W. Thompson's Sunday
school class gave Mrs. dulius

served, and an enjoyable time was

The first of the week the Loup
City Tennis club sent seven players
to play against Broken Bow, de
feating the latter city by a total
of twenty-four games. Broken
Bow has a club of twenty-one
members and has a good reputa
tion as a tennis, town so the work
done by the players from this
city was very creditable, especial
ly considering the fact that our
players went into the contest on the
enemy’s courts, and after a fifty
mile auto trip.

J at which the Loop City team
j excelled, the “singles'* games be

J. W.Thompson's billiard parlor
was broke into some time Tuesday
night. Two strangers were loiter
ing around about closing time and
saw Willard make change for a
bill and the inference is that they
supposed he left the money in the
'cash register over night. Such
was not the case, however, as Mr.
Thompson nightly banks the re
ceipts in his hip pocket and the
would-be thieves found nothing
to repay them for the chances
they took.
