the legislative and appraisal body of the
Delphi Public Schools. They formulate all
policies, rules and regulations which gov-
ern the operation of the school, they ap-
prove the election of all teachers and em-
ployees and determine their salaries, de-
termine the school tax rate, approve the
appropriations and expenditures of all
funds, and appraise the administration
and educational progress of the schools.

by the advisory board of the township. He
was a member of the board from August
l, 1989, to December 3, 1946.
Wade Farr, Secretary, was trustee of
the Township and by law was made Sec-
retary of the school December 23, 1942,
to December 3, 1946.
Joseph Ives, Treasurer, was elected by
the city council to represent the city on
February 3, 1944, to December 3, 1946.
Mr. Ives was re-elected for another term
on the school board, and is again assuming
the position of Treasurer.

Minnie J. Roach took office on January
1, 1947, as Secretary of the new board.
Mrs. Minnie Roach Mr. Olaf Brown
"Man does not live by bread alone."
Similarly true is the fact that the material
things we possess are not the fullest meas-
ure of our progress toward a fuller, rich-
er life. Education is the basis, the founda-
tion, for a secure and happy future. Re-
move this foundation and what is left
would be nothing but a human shell de-
prived of the ability to accumulate grow-
ing usefulness and a place among men.
Through the centuries education has de-
veloped from an insignificant acorn to a
giant oak. It is to the faculty of our high
school then that we dedicate the follow-
ing three pages.
