This little piece ran in the November, 1945 Eatonville Dispatch. The article is interesting because is talks about the Ashford public school. It must have been a rather small school though because the Home Economics class consisted of four girls: Evelyn Akers, Patricia Balch, Nadine Reese and Audrey Straws.

Interesting fact: In the 1940s the WPA (Works Projects Administration) created sewing projects where women produced clothing which was distributed to the poor.
