This article is written in commendation of Cass county's Superintendent of Education, who has held this position creditably for a period of years.

Bertha A. Johnson

Originally appointed to fill the term made vacant by the death of her husband, the showing made by her was sufficient to cause the electors to return her for four consecutive terms. Under Mrs. Johnson's supervision there are 139 rural schools which are in session practically the entire year.

She is an aspirant for the republican nomination to succeed herself at the June primaries and points with reasonable pride to the position the schools have attained in this county under her supervision.

"Bertha and the baby" was a slogan that has redounded to the well being of a host of boys and girls in Cass county.

The best evidence Mrs. Johnson can give if entrusted in the future with this responsibility is the success she has achieved in the past.
