No Religious Services in School Houses

The question of using the school houses of Clay township for religious meetings during the next year was settled last Monday at the district township meeting held at No. 5. A motion to allow the school houses to be used for Sunday school and other religious purposes was defeated by a vote of nine against to six in favor of the proposition. Much bitter feeling has been aroused over the matter, but it is hoped that the will of the majority as expressed at the meeting will restore harmony.

Ben Knisley, the director of No. 7, over the use of whose school the trouble started, has been re-elected for the ensuring year.--Conrad Record

Part of Clay No. 1 Joined To Grundy School District

At a recent meeting of the Grundy County Board of Education, that portion of Rural School No. 1 in Clay township that was not assigned to the Beaman-Conrad Community School District earlier this year was assigned to the Grundy Community school district.

2 3/4 sections in Clay No. 1 has been assigned to the Grundy District. 1 1/4 sections of the District was made a part of the Beaman-Conrad District through an assignment made by the County Board of Education a few months ago.

The pupils from the new area in Clay No. 1 which is now a part of the Grundy District had in late years been coming to the Grundy county, and the assignment meets with the united approval of the school patrons in the area.
