Old School Board
Issues New Call
For An Election
DRUMRIGHT, OKLAHOMA, PR ID A'. MAY 18. 1917.
FIVE CENTS PER COPY
The old school board, as we will
designate them, are today issuing a
new call for an excess tax levy elec-
tion. They are now getting down to
"hard tacks," as this call upon the
face of it appears to be legal in every
way, they say.
Their estimate includes the monies
receivable from other sources

The teachers of the city of Drum-
right have worked faithfully during
the past year. They have worked just
as faithful the past month as they
have during the rest of the year. The I
school term is up, and the teachers j
want to go to their various homes, j
And before they go they want their
•money—they arc entitled to it. May- ■
be they need it—no doubt they do. j
But whether they need it or not they 1
should be paid.
They have honestly earned their
money. They are not responsible for |
ihis legal tangle, if you wish to call |
it such. They should not be made the
. ictims of a wrangle of two boards
that are fighting for position on the
board of education of the city of
Mr. Logan, clerk of the old board,
stated to a Derrick reporter last even-
ing that the salary warrants for the
last month's salary for the teachers
would be drawn up in proper form,
and in the office of the newly elected
treasurer, Mrs. Bridges, Saturday
Legally there is no doubt of these
warrants going through. But it is
doubted if there is one on either
board that would want to see them
held up. It would result in no ulti-
mate good for the school system of
the city of Drumright. If the city of
Drumright was to use their teachers
this way they would, no doubt, have
no little trouble in the future beforo
securing another staff of teachers
such as we have now.
No doubt it will be claimed that it
is a legal question whether the old
board lias the ri.;ht to issue these war-
rants. The same would apply to the
ne wboard. In a way the treasurer is
up against it as she does not know
which is the legal board, or what
warrants to acknowledge.
However, one thing is certain. One
of these bodies will eventually be
declared tho legaal school board.
Why can't theso men get together
and act jointly in this matter and see
that the teachers obtain their money?
Mcclure a truce in this instance and
see that these teachers get that which
they have honestly earned.

Madonna and one other, title un-
known. These pictures were paid for
I by voluntary contributions and by
funds received for operetta given at
| the Strand.
| Of their picture fund the children
have $46 remaining in the bank which
will be used next fall for improve-
ments at the building. They also have
taken in $15 from basket ball games,
of which $8.50 was used for a ball
J and the remainder to be used for pur-
chasing uniforms next fall.
The children of this ward won the
clean-up prize, which is a handsome
picture entitled "Sir Galahad." In
ail the children now own thirteen pic-
tures and have a balance in the bank
to their credit of about $50.
There being a contest as to who
constitutes the Board of Education of
School District No. 39, I, being treas-
urer, and not a part of said board,
jnd not taking part in the contro-
versy either way, am keeping in mind
that I am liable, together with my
bondsmen, for any money I might
pay as treasurer unless same were
paid on a legal warrant issued by u
I have no disposition to delay the
paying of any legal claims, and, the
di-trict court now being in session, I
am willing to sign an agreed stipula-
tion of facts, submit it to the court,
and abide by the court's decision as
to which board I shall recognize.
