Title Ruth Scow Friend and Teacher
Description RUTH SCOW FRIEND AND TEACHER Rose Ludvigson Mclff Senior Division Second Place Short Story School teachers make great friends. Their unique interest in others is one of encouragement to help them achieve. A difference can be made and fell by the uplifting words of a caring teacher. Miss Davenport (Ruth Scow] was that kind of a teacher, as well as a life long friend-especially to the people of Sterling. The story began when we heard the 8:30 school bell ring. The children from the west side of Sterling had a mile to walk, and we were still playing in the autumn leaves along the levy ditch. Clint Ludvigson said, "We better go." Burton and Les Anderson agreed. We arrived just in time to line up and mark time before marching into our room to find a seal, which was always a bit of a shuffle. A nice stately young lady stood before us announcing, "I1 am Ruth Davenport of Manti." Ruth and Ernest Scow. Manti - friend and Teacher Courtesy Rose McIff This was the late 20's. Miss Davenport found boarding places in Sterling and really became one of us. She had come to teach the 3rd. 4th. and 5th grades. These were called the Depression Years. We never felt depressed or deprived. These were great years building on our resources relying on ourselves for what we had. especially for entertainment, How could it be boring? This is when the first radios came Sterling's young men, Merrit Bradley and Clifford Hansen, put them together with earphones. Sterling and Mayfield conquered the depression when they started having shooting matches. All the men got together and had a great time. 39
