Fifteen hundred delegates and 800 resolutions, that's the task which faced Chairman Greenfield tiis after- noon after officers' reports had been dls'posed of and the resolution stage reached.

Cudoba and daughter Miss Dorothy, were the guests of Lethbridge friends over Sunday. Mr. C. W. Harris, C. P. R. brake- man, got a badly mashed hand whilo working in the Frank yards one day last week, but is reported doing very nicely. The Moccasin Dunce was not so very well attended but the few who did go had a jolly good time as the ice was in good condition. Mr. V. Hogan, of Taber, was visit- ing friends in Prank Sunday. The fact that the senior pupils here are without a teacher is resented very much by the parents, but we are in- formed that every effort is being made to secure a teacher quite soon. Why not the citizenB of Frank Met together and make some arrange- ments to repair what fe.w sidewalks we have as they are in a very danger- ous condition and quite a number of persons have already been hurt by tailing and some one is very apt to tie paying for broken limba or other jodily injuries.

It is little wonder that Greenfield pleaded that something be done to make the district convenUoiu undertake a trimming down of the resolution list before another year. On World Peace Another Important resolution mov- ed by the executive was paued unanimously by a standing vote. It read: "Whereas, the League of Na- tions was brought into being with the idea of minimizing the chances of war; "And whereas we view with Increas- ing alarm the efforts of some nations to vie with each other in again pre- paring for war, employing every knowledge ot science for that porpooe "Therefore, be it resolved, that we, the V.

The crowd wai small at only about thirty turned out. The meeting v.-as presided over by Mr. Max Donnldaon. the chairman ot the board. The principal's report was read by Mr. A. J. Law. The attendance report showed tbat 197 dlferent pupils hud been enrolled during the year. Tot- average enrollment for the fall term was 131, the average for the month of December 152. The average attend- once was 123. The school was kept open 200 days. Ths scr.srsl nrosrcGS of the pupils was good, but especially no in the low- or grades. Mr. La.-.v that all complaints about tho discipline and conduct in the vans be reported to him so that they could be investigat- ed. The attention of the meeting was called to the poor condition of the school library. Not more than 210 books were read last year because very few books suitable for the lower ani intermediate grades. About f 75.00 is now in the liands of the principal, and the meeting later oa authorized the school board to add another 175.00 to this amount to better the condition of Oie library. The report of the trustees was sub- mitted by the chairman. It was point- ed out that the experiment in provid- ing free supplies which was tried during the year had proved satisfact- ory. The coat was JMO, or about 13.00 per pupil, which was cheaper than it could be done Individually. The chair- man especially acknowledged the ac- tion of Armstrong Raworth. of Leth- bridge, in presenting a clock to tbe nlc school, and selline anotker at half price to the primary school. Another marked feature of the report was the large number of community meetings held during the jear. Apart from church and Suwiay School wnich mecti twice on Sunday, no less than 120 meetings had bean held. This did not take into account the fact that tha Conwrratory of Nunic taught weekly classes in voice aad instrumental works In the school. The financial report was the de- pressing feature of the meeting. It showed a debt owed by the district and overdue of of this is owing to the bank, and the line of credit is already past. The reason for this situation is that taxes of are in arrears, most of these taxes are Hie taxes, and the arrears are no doubt due to the slump in farm produce prices. Tho assets ot the school in land, bvlldings and equipment are rained at and the total Itakilittea an The total expense for the year was The two big items of ex- pense were tf.OM.M for operation of Tans and IStl.H for new vans and repairs.

Salaries ot teachers totalled The average coat per pupil was filJ.OA or just over per school day. It -was decided not to provide school hot lunc'oes this winter, owing to the expense, trouble and lack of appre- ciation on the part of pupili. The rate of taxation last year was 8 mills. Tbe assessed value of the land ot the district was delegates' expenses by locals aa whole, asking for a new method o! handling resolutions, for a bureau of information in the central office .pro- viding machinery whereas locals may buy and sell to and from each other, and restricting members to member- ship In one local only, were ordered tabled in quick succession.
