Not Reported Among Vestris Survivors
Mrs. John M. Mills, 65, of Los Angeles, Cal., formerly Miss Mabel Smith of Millburn, is listed among those missing and unaccounted for in the sinking of the steamship Vestris which foundered 275 miles off the Virginia Shoals on Monday.
Mrs. Mills, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George S. Smith of Millburn, was born and raised in Millburn and left here about 35 years ago when she became the bride of John M. Mills and moved to Evanston. After the death of Mr. Mills, Mrs. Mills moved to Washington, D.

Mr. Mills was pastor of the Second Presbyterian church at Evanston.

They have received no official report from the steamship company that she is missing, but so far her name has failed to appear in the lists of the rescued and according to the press dispatches, is listed among those missing in the sea tragedy. Mrs. Vose, who lives at l13l Ridge avenue, Evanston said that as soon as word of the sea tragedy was received, relatives started a check to determine whether or not Mrs. Mills have been rescued.
The family of the woman fear that Mrs. Mills may have been one of the women on the make-shift life raft that steamers have been unable to find following the sinking of the ship. One man, rescued from the sea where he had floated in a life belt, said that there were two life boats and a make-shift raft with several women passengers on board within a radius of two miles from where he was picked up. All efforts to find the boats and the raft were fruitless at last reports.

Voting Will Probably Take Place During The Next Month
Efforts are being made to form a community high school district in the neighborhood of Grant, Lake Villa, and Antioch townships. A petition bearing 55 names calling for voting on the matter has been filed in the office of T. A. Simpson, coun ________________ of the signers live in Fox Lake. Mr. Simpson has said that the election will probably be held next month, but no definite date has been set.
The proposed district includes about 27 square miles. It takes care of territory that is without high school facilities. Most of the students in it attend the Libertyville, Gurnee and Antioch High schools.
An attempt was made some time ago to organize a high school district in the territory included in Saturday's petition, but it went on the rocks because of opposition. The boundaries of the present plan are smaller than those of the original, and, for that reason may bring a more favorable vote.
If the plan is approved, the next step will be to organize the district, issue bonds, and build a school. The fact that approval of the measure will bring the levying of taxes for the support of the school is the reef on which the project may be wrecked. Many feel that the expense would be too great, inasmuch as nearby schools are available.
