MEXICAN SCHOOL PLANNED

EMERSON P.T.A. COMMITTEE NAMED TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR INSTALLATION IN ARGENTINE

Mexican children in the Argentine district will have a school of their own as soon as the necessary arrangements can be made.

A committee of two, Mrs. Nancy Bishop - representing the Parent Teacher association of the Emerson school, and Dr. K. C. Haas, representing the Argentine Activities association, waited upon Miguel Angelltiro, Mexican consulate in Kansas City, Mo. today and obtained his sanction to the plan of putting all Mexican children in school by themselves.

According to Mrs. Bishop, the school board has promised a school to be located near the Mexican region in the Argentine district.

Crowded conditions due to the 100 Mexican children in attendance at the Emerson school led the Parent Teacher association to take steps to to bring about relief.
