The telephone at our public school has proven a great convenience. On rainy days our superintendent with high school boys, as able assistants, is busily employed delivering messages from parents to children. Yet, considering that we have four hundred pupils, it would be impossible to allow them to answer the telephone only at the recess. We would also kindly request the parents to time their messages as far as possible for the recess. For the convenience of the public the recess periods are as follows: 10:45 a. m. to 11 a. m., 12 a. m, to 1 p. m., 2:30 p. m. to 2:45 p. m.
