ARGENTINE, ARMOURDALE DISTRICTS WISH SEPARATE ROOMS FOR FOREIGNERS

An effort to get a separate school for the Mexican children of the Argentine and Armourdale districts is being made by the members of the Parent-Teacher and civic associations of the two districts.

A committee composed of one member each of the Emerson school Parent-Teacher association, the Argentine Activities association and the school board will go before the local Mexican counselor Saturday to solicit his help in putting the proposition before the Mexican residents of the district.

Members of the Parent-Teacher associations object to their children mixing with the Mexicans on the playground.
