05 November 1922 Times for Jellicoe

Jellicoe School in 1925. Located south of the CNR station and east of the Railway Hotel, which later became the Red Cross Hospital. Nipigon Museum.

The recent inspection trip over the division found the Jellicoe yard and plant in better condition than it has been for a number of years. Much credit is due the Locomotive Foreman and Yard Foreman for the clean, orderly appearance of things in general.

The Jellicoe school is at last in operation, with Mr. J.J. McKenna in charge and an attendance of twelve, which will shortly be augmented. Mr. Hamilton, Public School Inspector, paid a recent visit to town and was very optimistic over the outlook. The Trustees will now introduce a progressive immigration policy for young married couples.

Employees requiring medical attention are seriously handicapped by the sudden departure of our learned physician, Dr. Day. We can only hope that in his new field his sterling qualities will be promptly recognized.
