I'm thinking that If you aro rank ing any trips to tho country schools now you might be ahlo to ilnd out tho opinion of a great many peoplo nnd meet up with arguments for and against. I'm nlmost sum that literature concerning tho bill has been sent to tho otflcu and you bavo been made acquainted with somo of the condi tions horo, I might add in strident 'confidence, that condltlona are wori-e than thoy aro printed. Orogon must hnvo now build Ings and sho must hnvo monoy to re pair her old buildings.
