May 21, 1920 — HIGH SCHOOL ACCREDITED
The City Superintendent of Schools received a letter from the Northwest Assn. of Secondary and High Schools to the effect that the Sandpoint high school has again been placed on the accredited list of high schools for school year 1920-21. The school was removed from the accredited list last year for failure to conform to standard regulations of equipment. Reinstatement means that next year’s graduates will be able to enter any college in the northwest without an entrance examination.
WATER DAMAGES STORE STOCKS
Nearly every local business securing steam heat from the Farmin plant suffered damage caused by water escaping from radiators on Monday night when a workman at the plant turned the water into the low pressure boiler and forgot to shut it off. The water flooded the pipes and overflowed, immersing floors throughout the business section and causing cascades of water to ripple over mercantile stocks. All losses from the water have been assumed by Mr. Farmin.
WILL FURNISH BAND
The city council agreed to furnish the band for the health parade to be put on under the direction of Miss Hedwig Djupe, city and school nurse, tomorrow afternoon. The engaging of the band was assigned to City Clerk Myrvin Davis.
