WHERE MEDFORD SCHOOL TEACHERS WILL SPEND SUMMER VACATION

The teachers in the Medford school for the past year will be scattered far and wide this summer, but most will be back to resume teaching next fall. Quite a number of the present staff will either teach elsewhere this year or will give up teaching.

Superintendent of Schools Aubrey Smith will remain here for two weeks or more clearing up school matters, and will be absent for the summer, going first to California, Mo., his former home, to visit his parents, and from there to Des Moines, Ia., to attend the annual convention of the National Education Association. From there he will go to Chicago to take some work at the University of Chicago.

Herewith is related just how the teachers will spend the summer.
