With the opening of the present term of school, Monday morning is recorded in the pages of history of Delphos, a new era in education, a forward movement in the cause of learning.
As a result of approval of an overwhelming majority of the voters of Delphos at two bond issues, a monument to the present generation now stands at Jefferson and Third streets.
The new Jefferson school was, Monday morning, dedicated to learning, when the doors were opened and teachers and pupils assembled to begin their year of labor in this handsome new structure.
The new Jefferson School is one of the most complete buildings in this part of the state, large, substantially built and conveniently arranged.
Not many years ago, a vote was taken on the question of issuing bonds in the sum of $25,000 to erect a new ward building in Delphos, but this failed. Only a few years later a $100,000 bond issue for a new high school and a ward school in Second ward, carried by a large majority and a second issue of $20,000 to complete the Jefferson building also received a hearty approval, showing a change of heart.
