Superintendent- Elect Chilcott Young man chosen to oversee the work of county' s schools who is emi- nently fitted and qualified for this im- portant task, still another of our bril- liant young educators who gives prom- ise of a bright future. The man whom the people of Jew- ell County have called to the important office of county superintendent is by no means a stranger to those interested in the advancement of our schools. His vote last fall was a splendid endorse- ment of his career as a Jewell County teacher for the past ten years. They knew him as a boy, as a student, and finally as a teacher and hence their confidence in him was unlimited. It is safe to say that he will give a tone, a character, and a zeal to that office never known before in the history of the county. Born in Pennsylvania, yet he is es- sentially a product of the environment of Jewell County, having moved here in 1879 with his parents. As a boy, he attended Unity School on the comer of his father' s farm. Later he attended the Mankato High School and began his most successful career as a teacher at Rose Hill, Sinclair Township, where he remained three years and could have remained till now had not opportuni- ties offered him positions where his skill and Christian influence would command greater monetary returns. In 1891 he entered the Salina Nor- mal University to fit himself the better for his chosen profession. In 1895 he began the regular four year Latin course at the State Normal where after two years' interruption, he graduated last June. During these two years he had charge of the Webber schools, a posi- tion which he filled to the universal satisfaction of the patrons. That his work of an educator has been of the highest order is attested by the una- nimity of his support from those sec- tions both in the convention and at the polls. His endorsement, too, at Ran- dall, where he was chosen principle last fall with no less pronounced than in other sections where his work was Continued to page 7 fourth plane crashed in a field in Penn- sylvania.

More than 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., includingmore than 300 police officers and firefighters. The 2,977 confirmed victims of September 11,2001 included innocent victims from more than 90 countries. The youngest victim was two-year-old Christie Hanson.

All of the innocent victims were just...going todswork at work..., trav- elling to see friends and family...going on vacation....or trying to protect lives and property. We will never forget the men, women and children who lost their lives; those brave people who gave their lives and the heroes who re- sponded to the emergency.
