This Day in History: 1931-12-03
Membership if the Board of Education involved more of a active role in the life of school in the old days than today. Police Chief Smith was asked by Board member Lane to accompany him to the school to help deal with some “obnoxious” boys. The boys were rounded up and given “severe reprimand”, not by Smith, but by Lane. There is no report as to how effective the admonition was.
