Elizabeth Cardwell Gets High
est Average in Eighth
Grade Exams

Children attending schools in the country districts of Garfield county average higher in their choice of literature than do those of the Pomeroy schools, according to results shown by the recent eighth grade examinations. The state has a list of eight reading circle books, four of which must be read before pupils can receive eighth grade diplomas. Reports from the recent examinations show, according to Miss Frances Gimlin, superintendent of schools, that few of the rural school children have failed to read the required amount and a great many have read more, while only one-third of attendants of the city schools have done the necessary reading.

Elizabeth Cardwell of district No. 11, with a per centage of 94, secured the highest averages in the recent examination and Frances Meyers of the sisters school took second with 93 per cent. Lois Wisenor of district 11 was third with 93 per cent; Claire Cluster, district 11, fourth, 91 per cent; Isabelle Freeburn, district 33, fifth, 90 per cent.
