Feb. 11 The following is a synopsis of minutes of the educational portion of a business meeting held in the school house.
	Trustee Barker reported having visited the school; and having found a lack of system there, and a consequent lack of progress.
	Trustees had now given Bro. Welchman an assistant expecting that he would now introduce the system introduced into the county by the "Outlines of Study" etc., published by Miss I. I Cook, Co. Supt. of Dist. Schools.  
	Trustee Barker wanted all playing within the school house prohibited by the teacher.
	Bp. Rigby stated that he should sustain Miss Cooks system.
	M. P. Petersen, and others complained of a lack of progress in their respective children who were pupils.  It was thought the monitorial system was too freely used; and that a change of teacher, as well as a change of system were needed.
	Bp. Rigby stated that if the teacher, Bro. Welchman had not done justice to the school, it was the fault of the Trustees.
	The teacher, Bro. Welchman said he had never laid claim to be a thoroughly educated man, nor that he could systematically conduct a school according to the late and most approved methods.  That he  had been invited to come to Newton, he came only to do as best he could, and he had done so.  He emphatically denied that

Page 31 Alma P. Benson had been unjustly turned out of school during the previous term-and that he had been as good as turned out this present quarter, as charged by his father.
	He announced, however, that he would no longer be a block to the progress of the children, but would leave the school room for some abler teacher to take in charge.
	But he maintained that only one side of the matter had been presented to night. 
	The Trustees, with the approval of Bp. Rigby also, are willing  to release Bro. Welchman at the close of  the present quarter.
	It was motioned by John Jenkins and seconded by Wm. Bell sen., that Miss I. I. Cook's system, and "Outline of Study" for District schools of Cache Co., be sustained by the people.  Carried.
	Meeting adjourned, or rather went into a committee of the whole on Land matters.  For full minutes of the meeting see Town Record, page 164.
						A. P. W.  clk & recorder.

Tue. March 4th      An Election meeting was held at the school-house for the election of a Board of School trustees District for the 6th School of Cache Co..   Said election being called by notices properly given.
	J. H. Barker nominated W. F. Rigby Sen. For the chair, seconded by A. P. Welchman, carried.
	Chair asked who shall be our clerk.  On motion of Barker, seconded by J. Jenkins

Page 32         A. P. Welchman was elected clerk of meeting.
	By request Trustee Barker spoke on the objects of the meeting.  Said the Board 
	presented no financial report to night, as one was presented and accepted not long ago since.   Stated that a lack of uniformity in the times of elections, the school year, and the rendering of accounts to the Co. Superindendant rendered it inconvenient for the attending to some of these matters.
	The meeting decided to elect trustees viva-voice.  On the question of the Chair    P. Yensen moved that a nominating committee he appointed by the chariman: seconded by A. P. Welchman.  Remarks called for-Carried.
	Chair appointed Foster Curtis, John Griffin and Wm. H. Griffin as that Committee.   Committee retired.
	On call, the Chairman addressed the meeting.  Said:  Our present leading educational man, John Taylor, is laboring to perfect the school laws and practices.  Thought we should all respond with zeal worthy the cause.  Considered it necessary to educate our crude mountain youth, so that being thereby under controll, they might be trained in that way which will preserve our peace and liberties.  Their natural abilities only need proper education to develop them into useful, honorable men and shining lights in society.
	Committee now returned and reported as nominees Wm. F. Rigby, Jno. H. Barker and A. P. Welchman.
	Chair asked the electors what they would do with the report.
	After a speech by M. P. Petersen, John Jenkins

Page 33 moved that the report of the committee be accepted, and they discharged, with thanks, from their committee-ship.   Seconded by M. P. Petersen; and, no remarks being offered, carried unanimously.
	It was then moved by Stephen Durrant, seconded by John Jenkins, and without remarks, carried unanimously, that the nominees Wm. F. Rigby, Jno. H. Barker and A. P. Welchman are elected a Board of Trustees of school for the Sixth School District of Cache Co., U. T.
	J. H. Barker, answering certain objections made by M. P. P. [?M. P. Petersen] to some school proceedings, said:  The Trustees have always objected to interruptions of the day school; but many important meeting are demanded in the interests of the ward, and yet we have but this one house in which to convene schools and all other meetings.  These facts suggest the great necessity for the building of a vestry-room, attached to this house.
	A. P. Welchman agreed with Bro. Barker in the necessity for such a room; as also did 
	Bp. Rigby, who further said that he would be pleased to see the trustees take action in this matter.
	On motion the meeting adjourned, sine die.

dates for page 229 would be late 1880 and 1881 by deduction of the mention 
of  Clarise Curtis the widow of Foster Curtis who died in 1880 and the 
sequence of teachers being paid-from J. P. Low to James Langton and Mary 
Crocket.]
