WHY NOT WORK TOGETHER?
The school board has elected a new
superintendent for the ensuing yeni
and we are reliably informed that Un
vote was not unanimous, but stood at
2 to 1. We dislike to recall past in
cidents but the demands o i
public policy atthis time demand a
more unanimous action on the part of
the board, and it is to bo regrcUeii
that one member of the board speni!
to have turned a deaf ear to publir
demands, and requirements.
The election of the auperinU-ndent
is a lcBser task. The election of thr
remainder of the corps of tonchere
of the corps of taachera for the en
sing year is a much greater one, yet
to bo performed, nnd it is nbsolutelj
nscnntinl that p personalities b?
eliminated, having regard only for th--public
good. There aro a few ver
good teachers here now and a num
ber who have varying and iPsser de
grees of qualilicutiou, and the delica
cy of the situation is that some of
them are related to or are member.
of local families. This circumstance
is not expected by the public tc
swerve the board from the straight
path of duty.
No reference is here intended lo ap
ply to any individual teacher, but 'it.
is intnded to awaken the public con
science in this school district to the
point of making demands upon the
school board to stand together and in
the future, to act more in unanimit
than in the past, or elsetftfy the pub
lic and openly declare that they have
no regard for public demands and ve
Man has not always eaten the fine
wheaten bread which is served today
Yet it would bo necessary to go' far
back into prehistoric times to find
theperiod in which some kind of
bread was not baked. Sarah, who
cooked for Abraham, the "father of
nations" made bread just ua her an
cestors had made it for hundreds of
years before her Ume.
According to tradition it was Pan
the god with fact! and legs of a goat
who first taught mortals how to
make bread. So successful were her
pupils, however, that at one time no
less than seventy three kinds of bread
were evolved out of various combina
tions of milk, oil, honey, cheese and
wine with the flour of that period.
But the necessities of war have of
ten driven men to the temporary use
of substitutes for wheat. German
bakers now make bread composed of
85 per cent rye and 15 per cent pota
to which is piouooiiced by chemists to
be us nourishing as wheat bread.

from France, Germany Austria and

practically withdrawn; Germany and
Austria by a state of bolligorancy,
Rou'niania by the closure of the Black

and the operations of war. Russia is

Europe has purchased 250,000,000
Hushels of wheat in this country at
steadily advancing prices and still its
need is so urgent that it pays thirty
c-onts per bushel to ship wheat from
New York to England and 85 cts. to
Speculation and the daily clamor of
the world will still further increase

A rational system of national de

A naval reserve is as much needed
as a military force. But the number

Our different state universities
either charge no tuition -fee or the
charge for tuition is nominal. These
institutions have all been endowed by
the national government with grants
of land. Nearly all give some milita
ry training. Tins training should be
made more thorough and be compul
sory on all. Thus could the govern-'
mont provide material for officers
The training a youth receives in mil
itary service is as valuable as any he
can get at the university. In addition
to this tho youth should be compelled
to take a minor military training in
tho common and high schools.
Tho Indian boys who are educated
by Undo Sam in the government
schools are all given n certain amount
of military training. It is refreshing
lo look on these Indian hoys and con
trast them with the average Ameri

are modost in their deport mont and
respectful to their elders and have
courtesy ami manors far in advance
of the white boy student.
