This list includes the rural schools only. We do not have a complete list of the graduates of the eighth grade in all the town and Christian schools.
If we have omitted your name by mistake, write us and we’ll publish it next week.

We did not have diplomas for all the graduates. If you did not receive yours, it will be sent to you just as soon as we receive another supply.

Each and every graduate should plan to attend high school next year. Finishing the 8th grade is only a beginning. An 8th grade education is not enough for the future. It may have done pretty well for the past, but the future is calling for men and women of careful training.

Maurice Times, June 27, 1918

Milo Mieras will soon be prepared to take the Kaiser himself. He is
becoming a veteran, hardened and brave. First, he is well acquainted with
firearms having tried one out on his hand to note its effect. It was a
success. This did not worry Milo very much. Second, last week he tried to
test his strength against a gasoline car and came through in fair shape and
is back to work. Moral: You don't have to go to war to lead a strenuous
life. Milo Mieras and Teddy Roosevelt can get it at home.

John M. Mieras has been busy for the last few days laying sidewalks
for Dr. Oggel and Mrs. Martha Beyers. He also put in a crossing on Second
St. near the Mensink and Oggel properties.

Ramona Mieras is visiting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Mieras of
Sioux City.
