Lester D. Henderson, Commissioner of Education for Alaska, arrived on the City of Seattle Saturday. He had expected to reach Wrangell Friday morning and spend the day visiting the local school, but bad weather caused the boat to be a day late. However, it was possible for Mr. Henderson to visit the school Monday morning before leaving on the Jefferson. On Saturday night Mr. Henderson attended a meeting of the school board. He expressed himself to the Sentinel reporter as pleased over the organization of a Parent-Teachers’ association in Wrangell.
