FIRST ASSIGNMENT HERE
County superintendent E. E. Bragg's
office in the court house looks like a lib
rary hit by a cyclone. While the super
intendent i - figuratively covered up with
'books, he is still able to oversee the proper
distribution of the two thousand books
that lie arranged on tables, chair and the
floor. The bo.ks. which wih be apport
ioned to the sixty districts of the county
are the first consignment of the Oregon
Lhrary Commission which was constit
uted last year. At that time a ten cent
tax was imposed on each child, and in
Bragg' office can be seen the first bene
fit derived from this excellent law.
Bacutifully and substantially bound,
written by the best writers, and deal
ing with subjects that every sohool child
should knewthey are of immense value.
They deal witHhistory, geography myths
and a few heavier subjects, suitable for
The Commission rules that the dis
tribution shaU be in accordance to the
school population and therefor La Grande
gets about one quarter of the entire lot.
The remainder will be distributed on the
same basis to other districts.
The choice of books for this county was
made by Mr. Bragg from a list prepared
by the secretary of the commission, Mis
Cornelia Marvin, a lady who has estab
lished a reputation in the east for ability
to choose books suitable for school child
ren. While the choice of books for La
Grande was left to Prof.. Hockenberry,
the books that will be sent to the rural
and outlying town schools were selected
by Mr. Bragg and Miss Kuhn.
With the annual consignment which the
commission is to produce, the schools of
Union county will ere many years have
libraries of actual worth, not the kind
that decorate the walls, but ones that
contain rnir.es of information and know
ledge. The msvement certainly is com
mendable. Tne fund which Union county secured
for library purpose was $438.54 with an
additional $10.84 which the Grange
school district subscribed. For this rea
son the Grange school gets a trifle
larger apportionment than Others.
