April 23, 1934: A chance to observe

Public Schools’ Week starts today and everyone in The Greater Lodi District should make an effort to participate in this annual observance of our educational system. The idea was started by the Masonic fraternity during the World War and has been sponsored and developed by that organization ever since.
