County Sup- erintendent of schools of Washa- baugh County, returned last Sat- urday from Rapid City, where they were in attendance of the state conference of county superintend- ents. They report a very good at- tendance and a program of con- structive ideas. The conference heartily endorsed the present or- ganization of the department of education in the state and have asked to bring the fojlowing reso- lution before the public. RESOLUTION OF CONFI- DENCE AND SUPPORT Whereas, in our official relations with the State Department of Pub- lic Instruction at Pierre, we have always found helpfulness and effi- ciency and, . , Whereas, under the present ad- ministration many steps hive been taken for the furtherance of education, , .. Be it resolved, that we, the western division of County Super- intendents informally assembled at at Rapid City, January 29 and 30, 1924, hereby express, to Superin- tendent Shaw and his associates our appreciation of the splendid state-wine service the Department has rendered. . .

HIWAY Helena, Mont.,— Follovving a hearing at which various interest appeared, including officials of the Park to Park Hiway, Roosevelt Hiway, Yellowstone Trail and Cus- ter Battlefield Hiway, before the Montana Hiway Commission and Forest Officials of the state, SIOO,- JOO out of the $325,000 available vvas allotted for additional road .vork through Glacier National j Park, in view of the fact that there , vvere forty-eight delegates present ml seventeen projects wens asked for totaling one million seven hun- dred thousand dollars and the ’ommission only had three hun- dred and twenty-five thousand to ppropriate, the Custer Battlefield Hiway officials reel very jubilant when considered they received marly one third of the entire amount available. Secretary W. D. Fisher of the Custer Battlefield Hiway and orig- inator of thd Hiway made a strong appeal before the commission air- ing the cohioletion of t.he road hrough Glfaeier National Park, showing figures where it would bring from Pacific coast points in- ;o Montana, Wyoming, South Dak- ota, lowa and Nebraska an addi- tional .million tourists. As it is now there are no thru automobile roads through Glacier National Park and you are com- oelled to ship your automobile "hrough. The traffic from Canada and Pacific donst points pass up sracticallv the entire section now’ traversed by ahe C. B. H. and Sec- retary Fisher showed in a convin- cing manner the importance of' finishing this road at once in order to help the great northwest. He d owed 'others »"•> prominent i Eastern Automobile Clubs where hey aie willing to favor the Cus- ter Battlefield Hiway over any; other route because of the scenic | attractions, fine road bed and well ; marked hiway. if the road is finish-j *d through the Park at an early j date. The contest for the nionev J available was warmly debated, *ach Hiway Association bringing j out some Vjprv interesting points, but the C. B. H. brought home the bifrcrpst slice of bacon. The decision of the commission is a comnl :”*ont to t'*e Custer Battlefield Hiway Association and to every town and citv on this his- 1 toricp* route. Now for Si. Long from Simix City or Omaha and from the Park to the Pacific coast. o COUNTY SCHOOL NOTE& (By County Superintendent) The returns from the sale ot seals and health bonds are still coining in. Several school boards have sent in checks and warrants for the bonds. The Cottonwood Ind. School List, is the first and at present the only one to return the bond which was sent to all school boards at the beginning of the drive. .Several teachers have reported large sales of seals. The, entire list of returns will bo avail-i able by March Ist it is hoped. At the conference of the County j Superintendents of the Black Hills j division of the 9tate, held in Ra- pid City last week, there were a good many discussions of educa- tional problems. Mr. Guhin, Director of Rural School YVork, gave an interesting discussion of the examination cur- j ve which he thinks should be prac-! tieally uniform throughout thei state. He believes that the mini- j mum amount of failure in the final j eight grade examination should be ; about 10 per cent while _ the maxi- mum should be about 35 per cent. He based this outline on the fact i that in no school in the state is there less than eight months term of school and similarily in every rural school there is a maximum average of nine months. All things considered he feels that we should be fable to establish a re- cord which shall indicate the class of work done in the rural schools of the various counties. Last year he showed that the failures were all the way from ti |>er cent to 55 per cent in the various counties. Mr. Shaw discussed the Sterling- Hughes Towner Education Bill ami wMle no formal action was taken by the superintendents the bell met. with the approval of the group. - It may be of interest to teachers land parents Xs> know that the eighth grade examinations will be given on Mav 22-23 this year. At an informal meeting of the assembled superintendents the fol- lowing resolution was drawn up: o County Superintendent, J. M.j Woods and family went to Wan- blee to attend a district teachers institute last Saturday. He re- ports a very enthusiastic meeting with the following teachers pres- ent: Miss Mendenhall and Mrs. Enders of the Wanblee school; Mrs. Burke of Hisle school; Miss Thomson, Garner school* Anna| Thomsen, Herr her school: Mrs. ‘Trask, Rock school; Prof. Roberge, 1 Sperrv school; Mrs. Richardson, President Harding school. An Oratorical and Atheletie Association was perfected with Mrs. Trask as president. Miss Mendenhall. Secretary, and Miss Thomsen Treasurer. A contest and school exhibit will be held somewhere in the county in April or Mar. LOCAL CREDIT CORPORATION Last week The Jackson Countv¦ Agricultural Credit Corporation : was organized at Kadoka for the purpose of taking advantage of the provisions of the Federal In- ; termediatc Credit Bank law. The Intermediate Credit Bank was created under an amendment to the Federal Farm Land Bank Law and is oper&t d in connection with the Federal Land Banks, (Act March -Ith, 11*23, and is a very new thing. t It appears that in other localities where the people have taken ad- vantage of this law a great moa.v I ure of relief has been afforded toihe financial conditions in such communities. Under the provi- sions of this law Chattel loans are made to the new organiza- tion which in turn re-discounts the| loans with the Federal Intermedi- ' ate Credit Bank at Omaha. The i rnto of interest to the borrowers !is seven percent. Each borrower ! takes out stock in the Credit Cor-j noration to the amount of five norjcent of the loan made him. This ; is similar to thto arrangement in| the Land Bank loans. The loans are all instK*cted In(inspectors sept out by the Intor- ; mediate Credit Bank at Omaha. ; The securitv must consist of ! cattle, sheen, hop's, grain, feed and ! hay. It is hoped that by means of ’this new organization it will be possible to take up and refinance| enotyrh loans to great Iv relieve the nrcssure on the community and the local banks and business This organization is not dorien- ed to absorb *r lot of worthless : naner accumulated hv O*o banks injthe past ho* to he’n the farmerj who is working end saving andj needs to be enrried o'one in n go- : me* enterprise until he is able in ! an orderly \yav to work out. CHURCH NOTES FEB. 10TH. A church advertisement reads: “YVhy wait for a hearse in which to go to church; why not go when you can go on foot”. While the church is here to receive babes by baptism, give, proper burial to the dead, the cost ofbuilding and maintainance does not warrant the use merely for tho above mentioned purposes. The preacher hates to urge church attendance lest people think he wants them out to hear his ser- mons. But the sermons are but a nortion of worship. Anti worship is man’s perogative anti for this he was made by his Creator. Without the privileges of worship, man performs hut a small portion of ms normal, God-given functions.

Februarv 2. for President Coolidge $ Tribute To Abraham Lincoln A proclamation issued January 30th, 1910, by Calvin Coolidge, then Governor of Massachusetts Fivescore and ten years ago that Divine Providence, which infinite repetition has made only the more a miracle, sent into the world a new life, destined to save a nation. No star, no sign, foretold his coming. About his cradle all was poor and mean save only the source of all great men, the love of a wonderful woman. When she faded away in his tender years, from her deathbed in humble f poverty she dowered her son with greatness. There can be no proper observance of a birthday which forgets the mother. Into his origin, as into’ his life, men long have looked and wondered. In wisdom great, but in humility greater, in justice strong, bat incompassion stronger, he became a leader of men by being a follower of the truth. He overcame evil with good. His presence filled the nation. He broke the might cf oppression. He restored a race to its birthright. His mortal frame has vanished,but his spirit increases with the increasing years, the richest legacy of the greatest century. Men show by what they worship what they are. It is no accident that before the great example of American manhood our people stand with respect ami reverence. And in accordance with this sentiment our laws have provided lor a formal recognition of the birthday of Abraham Lincoln; for in him is revealed our ideal, the hope of our country fulfilled. Now, therefore, by the authority of Massachusetts, the 12th day of February is set apart as LINCOLN DAY and its observance recommended as befits the beneficiaries of his life and admirers of his character, in places of education and worship wherever our people meet one with another. GIVEN at the Executive Chamber, in Boston, this 30th day of January, in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and nineteen, and of the independence of the United States of America the one hundred and forty-third. CALVIN COOLIDGE IS NOW A GOING CONCERN To any one who is familiar with the great improvement w'hieh the ! local people have made in their financial affairs in the last two i years it is cv dent that this oppor- tunity to gft their loans taken up lor nine mouths at seven percent (with a chan: -¦ to renew for a year iis a real boon. ft is the hope of the organize*! ; that a goodly turn- | her of the l(*nl people will take advantage of this law. Those elesi : uu loans will call at their local bank and acquaint themselves \ th the provisions ol the law and make their applica- tions for loans. It is honed that i within the iv \t. few days it will 1m| possible to >r *uro a good tv number of applications for loans as it is desired 1.0 ••ave the first, lot of ’oans ready 1o be submitted to the Intermediate Credit Bank at Om- aha the first of next week.

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Couture, Frances Couture PHILIP AND KADOKA H. S. MET MONDAY ! KADOKA GIRLS WIN AGAIN 30- I'., BOYS LOSE 23-16 IN FAST CLEAN COUBLFHE ‘.DIU: Philip and Kadoka High Schools spat a double header basket ban i game here Monday night, the kad- oka. girls winning dU-10, and the Philip boys winning 23-lb. Both ! names were last and cleanly play-I ed. The Philip Kiris were out ! classed by Kadoka. and nltho thevj managed to hold Kadoka to a 13- 12 score the first half, were unable to stop Kadoka’s offense the sec- ond period. Hutton starred for Kadoka with 12 field goals and 2 foul goals, while Bowerman starr- ed for Philip by scoring all of their points. The boys game was a very fast clean game, and while there was never any doubt of the outcome the game was a thriller from start to finish. Philip was easily super- ior in floor work and passing, but seemed to be unable to find the basket. Donahue was the only one of the Philip team that seemed to lx* able to locate the ring with any degree of success, getting 6 field goals. The work of Severin and Daniel was very good, their work| on defense being especially strong. Brogman starred for Kadoka with 1 4 field goals.The game was c.fl’ieinted by Har- jmon, of Belle Fourehe, who was| undoubtedly the best official ever I seen on the local floor. He ran I the game in a speedy manner, andI held the boys down, so that no rough i'ess dr veloped at • any time, ;as is the tendency on a small floor. Coach Green of Philip and his I gentlemanly high school quint stayed for a while at the hall afterjthe game and o njoyed a short dance. The best feeling prevail- ed throughout the contest. This game certainly helped cement thebonds of freindship lietweon Phil- i >n and Kadoka and the Press hopes that these friendly contests may continue unbroken iff the future land that tie- best team mav always| w in. I The Philip girl*returned homethat evenin'- but the boys and ; their mentor stayed here in Ka- idoka l‘or tip' night to continue their march down the line as far !as Puck wan.a.

Kadoka will beI find to son them come again. The fifteenth of this month the ; local teams will travel Philipward to contest more for the hon- ors of the floor. The Press hopes ; that many of our people will make , plans to go with our athletes I anti cheer them on in the friendly 1 fight. • WINTER IS HERE AGAINj The laughing skies of last week| accompanied by the California¦ climate, whi h we have been enjoy-| ing the bust few weeks, gave •wav before d king Boreas return[Saturday night.
