THE ANNUAL SCHOOL MEETING.
Hen and Women Urged to Take an Interest
in the Hatter.
Cards. Or., Feb. 8. To the Emtob:
The time is near at hand when voters of the
several school districts will be permitted to
meet in annual meeting and elect a director
and clerk to assist in conducting the affairs
of our common schools. This event is one
of the greatest importance to our common
wealth, and yet sometimes owing to very
small numbers being present at the annual
meeting it would appear to be of the least
importance. Now to both men and women
I would say, attend this meeting In your
district, and see to it that proper persons
are placed on the school board, persons
who have a personal interest in the schools
persons capable and willing to make the
necessary sacrifice to promote the very best
I said " men and women," for both sexes
are on an equality; both have a right to vote
and hold office in school districts.
I would like to appeal to the many mem
bers of the strange in this county. We say
to the world that " we will endeavor to de-
veloD a better and higher manhood and
womanhood among ourselves, to enhance
the comforts and attractions of our Homes,
and strengthen the attachments of our pur
suits; that we will advance the cause of ed
ucation among ourselves and for our cb.il-
iln-n by all Just means in our power," ami
on (he first Monday of March of each year
let us attend, Hie school ine tings and do our
whole ilutyin the same.
1 world likit to call the attention of tha
district boards in some of the rural dis
tricts to th practice of calling this import
ant meeting in the afternoon, say 1 o'clock
p. m, instead of 7 o'clock p. tn. At this
season of the Year the road are it) a had
condition, iinl in dark nights it is almost
impossible lor rotors to jret to the meetings.
1 have heard it stated in defence of night
meetings that to hold them in the afternoon
would interfere with school hours, and the
teacher would not like to lose half a day.
It appears to toe that the teacher should not
lie required to lose the time, but that he
aml Uie pji, sho(M kimlly invit.il to
remain, and the teacher he requested to
make any suggestions he or she might
deem best for the interest of the school in
presence of the patrons of the school. And
the pupils would be attentive listeners and
would early learn something of the routine
of business connected witn the running of
the common schools,
ltesectfully submitted. J. Ctato.
