Anoka High school record
It might be of interest to the patrons of the Anoka High school (Central building) to know that in an enrollment of 224 students there has been an average daily attendance of 214 with three times the perfect attendance of two years ago, and in the last two years the number of tardinesses has been cut down from 598 to 27, and yet no one has been even hurt, much less killed; but rather, very much helped in being taught punctuality and regularity–a very essential lesson to good work and success.

Philolectians guests of Miss Crocker
A group of Philolectian members and a few of their friends motored to Minneapolis on Thursday afternoon at the invitation of Betty Crocker and visited the Gold Medal test kitchen.

Anoka Co-Op marks 10 years
Anoka Food Co-Op began 10 years ago with one employee, very little cash and limited space, but lots of volunteers, dedication and a purpose.
The purpose now as it was a decade ago: to sell the most nourishing, minimally processed, low preservative, natural and organic foods at the lowest prices.
There was an obvious need for the business as many people like and support the idea of natural food and others are allergic to foods containing preservatives.
