Editor West Side: The aotlou of
certain citizens of Independence In at
tacking our public school lu demand
ing such a reduction in wages as to
seriously lower Its present high
standard of excellence, Is certainly
very short-sighted. When you lower
the efllclcuoy of our sohools you rob
our children who are helpless to pre
vent It. Why not praotlce eoonomy
n some other direction? We bojie the
present coiidltloa of affairs is but
temporary and It mem to me we
might strike at other extravagance
which would reduce our Use and aave
u niouey now, and later on, If we
must, let us lower the standard of our
public school. It ha often been said
that education I the bulwark of Amer
ican liberty aud we And our people
more Intelligent than other nation,

economy In public expenditure Is the
order of the day, why make the first
reduction (and such a sweeping one) la

penditure go unoensured. Tube con
slstcnt those same persons should start
a crusade against municipal expense.
It might deprive us of some of our
luxuries but It would be only a tem
porary Inconvenience,, while crippling
our public school reaches far Into the
future. Your Truly,
