Assist the Enumerator i
The school board has employed Mr.
Casey W. Gordon to take the school
census and they will appreciate the
co-operation of the patrons of the
district- The district is entitled to
its prorata share from the state
treasury for every person in the dis-
trict between the ages of 6 and 21
years, and it is essential that all such
be enumerated, for it means some-
thing like $2.00 for each from the
state treasury. Mr. Gordon will com-
mence his work about Jan. 15, and
you will know his business when he
asks you how many children you have
of ages between 6 and 21 years.
