Ohop Weekly April, 1928

The Ohop Weekly was a school newsletter from the Edgerton School, which was located in — you guessed it — Ohop Valley. (I think the 1920 date at the top is a typo, which I can relate too. God, knows how many typos I’ve added to publications over the years.)

Hats off to the student writers and editors:
Editor – Alice Peterson
Assistant Editor – Fred Johnson
Sports Editor – L. Anderson
Society Editor – J. Anderson
Reporters: Jewel Anderson, Rahma and Harley Henricksen
