Saturday, December 5th, 1908.
The list ot subjects which
have been suggested by the dif
ferent school officers is given
below. These will be taken up
and discussed in an informal
manner, as there is no set pro
gram. The chairman of each board
or some member whom he may
appoint will receive $2 as com
pensation for attending the con
vention and we hope that every
district will be represented.
The chairmen of several
school boards have informed us
that their boards would attend
in a body and would use the $2
for expenses for lunch, etc.
State Superintendent J. H.
Ackerman will be present and
will aid in the discussions in
whatever way you may wish,
also several other prominent
educators will be present.
As you know this is the year
the legislature meets and since
there are several changes which
may be made in the school laws
and as the School Officers' Con
ventions of the county have in
the past passed resolutions
which have had some effct upon
legislation, it is desired that you
attend and take part in the dis
cussion of any subject in which
you may be interested and lend
your aid in bettering the school
condition of the county and
Since there is a big days work
before the convention come
early and invite your teacher or
teachers, your neighbors and
friends, to attend and assist in
the convention in any manner
they may see fit.
