MUSIC TEACHER ENGAGED BY SCHOOL BOARD

The School Board has approved the election of Miss Ina Ogdahl to teach music and take charge of the fifth grade to succeed Miss Frazier. Miss Ogdahl comes from Blackduck where she has held the position of music supervisor and assistant in grade work for the past two years. She comes well recommended and will undoubtedly prove a valuable addition to the local faculty. It is planned that she will devote one-half of her time to the fifth grade and the other to teaching music in the other grades. The teacher in whose grade she happens to teach will assume part of the fifth grade work. As a result of this the fifth grade will be run somewhat on the department plan. It is to be regretted that Miss Frazier cannot remain and fill out the year but as long as a change is made it is quite fortunate that the subject of music could be added at least in the grades.
