PAGE 2 THE PRESS MARCH 26, 2014 II I Late- (very late-) breaking news By David Larson for The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The city high school did much better on state exams in 1913. The passing rate in 1912 was 55.4%; last year it rose to 77.9%. In the second grade, "Holland, the land of windmills" has been the language study of the month. Their memory poem was "The Night Wind" by Eugene Field. There were 14 sixth graders who were neither tardy nor late, among them Ted Eyolfson and Thora Hanson (Knutson). Despite the seniors' good performance on exams, Superintendent Magnus Aygarn is still on the way out. The public is taking a strong stand for the superintendent, circulating another petition for retaining him--it is getting even more signatures than the first. By mid-month 217 people had signed the petition. Rev. Bjerke of the Lutheran Church addressed the board on behalf of the 150 men and women in the au- dience. The newspaper made no mention of the tone of the meeting, but it must have been spirited if three ministers publically questioned the school board about its complaints concerning Supt. Aygarn, and the board simply and repeatedly reported that it just thought they could get a more qualified man for the position. At one point senior student Thur- man Thompson spoke "and hurled some rhetorical shafts at members of the board," for which he was rebuked by the board chairman. Board members would not even answer a direct question from Andrew Walk- er whether they had ever visited the school when it was in session. Af- ter all was said and done, the board declined, again, to review its decision ... March, 1914 to terminate the Supt's. contract. At the end of the month Supt. Aygarn advertised his house for sale-- A nine-room residence on Briggs Avenue, six lots, barn on premises, fine lawn and orchard. The city council met early in the month. Among other pieces of in- formation from the meeting: The city power plant purchased 100 tons of coal; The city spent $198.83 for support of the poor (roughly half of what the city spent on the public library.); power plant superintendent Mullineaux has installed a telephone at home so patrons can contact him. In addition City Engineer Lykken said that plans for the city sewer sys- tem were complete. As the plans now stand, there will be four feeder lines, running east and west along the avenues (Briggs, Code, Harris, Wadge). The main line will nan east and west along Vivian Street, hitting Briggs between AH Walker's and Lawyer Young's properties. It will then con- tinue east through Dr. Church's yard until it reaches the coulee bed. From that point it will follow the coulee bed until it reaches the river, where it will discharge. The assessment for the main line will amount to about $7.00 for each 25' lot in the city. The Commercial Club is determined to have a good baseball team this year. They already have applications from several good ball players. Gus Mastre announces that "having bought a gas tractor, I will sell" my horses. All 11 of them, plus a colt, will be auctioned off. Supt. Broyles of the agricultural school received an inquiry from Eden- ton, North Carolina. Edenton will also build a Farm Life County School. There is a real coincidence: the Edenton school, like WCAS, will be built in the middle of a half-mile racetrack.

The project is administered by the Noah Dakota Department of Health. Out of pocket costs for screening colonoscopies is one of the primary reasons North Dakotans do not receive this life saving procedure. The goal of this project is to assist in reducing colorectal cancer screening barri- ers among the uninsured and underinsured by providing a total of 250 screening colonoscopies at no cost. "Colorectal cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer incidence and cancer death in Noah Dakota - but it doesn't have to be," Louise Dry- burgh, CEO said. "Although research has shown that colorectal cancer screening for p, .ple 50 and older can significantly reduce cancer deaths, we see North Dakota's screening rates are below the national average. However, Noah Dakota is above the national average for colorectal can- cer incidence and deaths according to the National Institute of Cancer. We can help turn this trend around by making screening more accessible to those who may not otherwise have the test done." Colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable. Not only can cancer be detected early with a colonoscopy, it can be prevented by re- the 2014 season Full time or Seasonal Coordinator wage negotiable depending on experience Seasonal: Lifeguards and groundskeepers Applications available at the Park River Oty Office.
