Mar. 30, 1921 – LOCAL BRIEFS

The high school’s domestic science girls entertained the school board at a six-course dinner Thursday.

The first car of the season making the way over the roads from Coeur d’Alene came in last Friday.



R. Stanley Johnson of Buhl has been employed by the Christian church as minister, to begin his ministry May 1. He will come through by auto with his family and leave his household goods to be shipped later. In the recent revivals held by Evangelist McSparran, the church was reorganized and it is believed a regular minister will further strengthen the church.



This year the senior class of 21 is putting before the students of the high school and the people of Sandpoint what promises to be a great success in the form of an annual, a 64-page book, for which the name “Monticola” was selected. It will contain an abundance of good reading matter, together with the picture of each member of the graduating class and also pictures of the other classes, the basket ball team, dramatic and debating clubs, etc. Many of the business men have already shown their generous attitude by contributing advertising material. The annual will be out by May 1, 1921, and the low price (75c) makes it possible for everyone to obtain a copy.
