State Supt. Bishop was a mem-
ber of the swimming ; party last
Normal closes this week. Many
express regrets that the eight
weeks have gone so soon.
Jennings lined up the normalites
Monday for a photo. It should
be a good one for the subjects
were the pick of Noathwest Ne-
Miss Perley , teacher of manual
training in the grades of the Lin-
coln public school , gave an inter-
esting talk , on Hawaii and the na-
tives Tuesday at chapel.
Principal Jacquith of Gates
academy , Neligh , made a neat lit- ]
. ble speech for his school Monday.
He represents a splendid school
for college preparatory work.
A group of students and instruc-
tors in the normal have been read-
ing together the autobiography of
Booker T. Washington. It is
proving interesting and is sug-
guestive of what many teachers
may do for the people in the dis-
tricts where they teach.
Last week the normal enroll-
ment passed the mark of the past
two years. In 1907 it was 99 , in
1908 , 80. Miss Cora Thackrey ,
one of the best teachers in the
county and a loyal supporter of
the schools and normal , received
the ; No 100. Hurrah for Miss
Blanch Searby won the argu-
ment'in her contention that some
people who are born deaf learn to
speak. She wrote to the superin-
tendent ; . of.the Nebraska school for
the dea f ' and the repIywas'Teo- :
pIe who are born deaf can some-
times be taught to articulate but
not so clearly as those who have
! heir ; hearing. "
Supt. Bishop in his visit to . the
Valentine junior normal , said
many complimentary things about
her faculty and students. He
found all working together in
perfect : harmony , no clashing ot
interests , pupils eager to learn ,
and instructors ready to assist in
all ways possible. He compliment-
ed the . management of the school
under the joint charge of Supt.
Gregory and Mrs. ' Hudson , and
expressed his satifaction with the
enrollment of 100 , the largest
number for three years.
Near the close of chapel hour
recently the principal , on behalf
of the teachers of Cherry county
and those attending normal from
other counties , presented Mrs.
Hudson with a beautiful set of sol-
id silver bullion spoons , a set of
solid silver salad forks and bread
plate. The surprise was complete .
and when the inscription on the
card accompanying the gifts , "To
Mrs. Lulu Kortz Hudson , from
many teachers and friends who
know you , respect and love you , "
was read there was plenty of evi-
dence that the card told the thot
of every heart and that it was ful-
ly reciprocated by the true wom-
an who was the recipient of' . the
The gratitude of the members
of the normal to the people of Val-
entine for the kindness shown
them in furnishing the school
building and its good equipment ,
was , shown Monday at chapel time
by the presentation of a large and
beautiful picture of the Concord
Dridge to the high school. The
scene of the historical bridge and
the ; surrounding country includ-
ing Lexington where the ' first
blood was shed in the revolution.
was sketched on the board and ex-
plained by Esther Schulz and Lulu
Gregory gave the historical set-
tings of the battle at the bridge.
Supt. Bettenga , on behalf of the
high school and citizens of Valen-
tine ; , accepted the picture in a
3leasing speech , in which he re-
ferred to the effect of beautiful
environment on young impression-
able people. In this connection ,
it is not amiss to remark that Val-
entine is fortunate in securing a
Ii man of the ability and force of
character shown by their new sup-
