SHS HAS ADEQUATE SHOP FACILITY

In this day of specialization aimed at fitting a student for higher education, one department of Sandpoint Senior High has grown in popularity the past year. It isn’t a college prep course at all.

The present shop building, now in its second year, has enough equipment to enable offering vocational agriculture, regular mechanical shop, welding and automotive mechanics. From 25 students last year, classes have grown to 100 boys this year. Teachers state that the long range effect of the modern department will be felt as more boys take up shop studies.

EXCEEDED HIS AUTHORITY

Attorney General Walters wrote across the face of a communication from the governor in regard to his authority to suspend the fish and game laws for the purpose of allowing seining of the rivers for fish: “There is no authority by which you can suspend the law.”

If seining is done, the attorney general holds, it must be done under the direction of the fish and game department, as the law permits such action.

HOME ECONOMICS EXECUTIVES

Miss Jessie Hoover, state home economics director, appointed an executive committee for Bonner county: Mrs. George York, chairman; Charles Henry, county food administrator; Miss Davis of Moscow, home demonstration agent; Mrs. E.H. Aaron, high school domestic science teacher; Andrew Christenson, county agent.

They will help to develop the food conservation work in the county by keeping every one informed of program changes and orders of the Idaho food administrator, by practical demonstrations of war time recipes and by informal discussions of problems confronting women at this time.
