side: papers ot criticism directed
at the Salem school board
dining, at its last meeting, to
make a set rule in regard to pro

Mr. Hug Friday made the foll
owing statement, to correct any
wrong Impression which may have
been t gleaned : from the ' accounts
in. the outside press:
It " is - the idea of the school
board to leave the ? high i school
free from specific rules passed by
the board to regulate high school
matters. It Is the desire that the
principal make- and carry out
rules for the high school and the
board wui do all It can to back
up the priaeplars ruling. High
school ? government ; should 'come
through - the ' administrative head
and the faculty." Mr. Hag himself
takes a similar, stand. ,
The superintendent finds a con
sensus or opinion - among persons
who have called him on the smok
ing: question that smoking should
be eliminated among high school
students, and especially xon the
school premises. - - ' . -, .
