In checking through the records we find that this is pot the first time in the history qf the- Rolfe schools that our school has been. without a homemaking instructor. In the fall .of 1947 the school opened without a. vocational homemaking instructor. The position was filled at the start of the second semester; in January of 1948. The loss of this .department f or,  r the. opening. of the school year is regretable, however,  every student in ourschool "has had homemaking classwork. .sufficient to carry them through for the coirir ing two years. No student-will he graduating without . the _ regular amount of homemaking' work" dur-ingjthe coming school year.

For two and a half years he attended Unjted ' Qhurch Colleg^,at Minneapolis, the ipent four years at St. Olaf 'College at Northfleld," .Minn:, and three .years at United Church Seminary at. St. Paul. Sum mers were spent teaching Bible school.  In the .'fittfntner. of 1006 he* was ordained as a pastor and married Hilda Oi Norby. His first pastorate was at Mohall, N.' D.  Rev. Wangberg spent two years at Mohall; seven years at Bowman, N. D., 27 years at Rolfe,. and four years at Ottosen.  Thtee„yeara ago,,with his daughter,'.Martha, he visited his old home in Norway, Which he had- not seen foe 69 years;  Besidei-his daughter, Martha, he has two sons, Orlando, who' is > a pastor at Frost, Minn.;-Reuben, a pastor at Webster, S.
