The Board of Supervisors placed additional roads of the county on what was known as the Green map. Included were some highways only nine feet wide. By placing them on the Green map, the idea was to have the State take them over and reconstruct them full width. It was probable that the Findley Lake Road would undergo such improvement within a year or two. Construction of an improved road from Clymer to Cutting was to be launched in the summer.

The Literary Club of Sherman entertained the faculty and parents of the members and the Board of Education Tuesday evening, in a delightful manner. The program of the evening was arranged to show how the twentieth century literature and music differed from that of previous centuries. Some 90 persons were present to enjoy the hospitality of the club.
