DRYAD TO CLOSE ITS HIGH SCHOOL
Dryad will not maintain a high school next year. Instead its 35 or more pupils will attend Pe Ell high. This will make this one of the largest accredited schools in Lewis county outside the larger cities. Doty abandoned its high school three years ago and has since sent its students to Pe Ell.
Wendell Iverson, who has been at the head of the Dryad schools the past year, after having previously taught at Boistfort high, has been elected superintendent of the Pe Ell schools. He will succeed Alfred Perks, who has headed the Pe Ell schools many years and is one of the best known educators in Southwest Washington.
Another school change of interest to Centralians is the election of E. E. Rairdon, former Chehalis teacher, as principal of the high school at Chimacum next year. Rairdon has been principal of the Morton high school since leaving here.
