Due to an inexcusable oversight, the announcement of Miss Elizabeth Kennedy was left out of last week’s issue of the Times. Miss Kennedy has withdrawn from the race for county superintendent of schools, which position she has most acceptably filled for the past few years. She has made a capable and conscientious superintendent and it is greatly to her credit that she leaves the schools of the county in a most efficient condition and on a high standard of excellence.
