the robbers had evidently used dur-

It is the belief of the police that
all three places worn robbed by the

strengthened by the fact that a cap

was no reason whatever for tho fail-
tin of the police to detect the
thieves while in the places they rob-j
lied for . two of the robberies were
oaactod within six feet of the front
windows of the stores. At the Cox

THE DAILY ARDMOREITE
EDUCATION THE BEST
ENT SAYS DR
IP AT ROTARY
CLUB NOON L
"Tho good education of a boy or
girl is tho biggest Investment that a
taxpayer can make" declared Dr. A.
E. Wlnshlp eminent lecturer today
in an address to the members of the
Rotary Club at the Tegular noon-day
luncheon session at the Chamber of
Dr. Wlnshlp's address dealt with
the responsibility of the business man
for better schools. He Is a speaker of
strong personality and held the clos-
est attention of his hearers who
upon the conclusion of his talk and
upon motion of Kotarlan Frank Gates
gave him a rising vote of thanks.
Although dealing with tho serious-
ness of the matter In hand a vein
of humor run throughout the talk
which made tho speaker all the more
The importance of education of the
new things was particuarly stressed.
"The schools" he said "will never
bo any bettet' than the taxpayers want
them to be.
"Dr. John II. Finley state com-
missioner of education in New York
has resigned to become associate ed-
itor of the New York Times because
he says It is more Important to edu-
cate the public to understand iippre-
rlute and support the schools than It
Is to look after the teachers and
superintendents" he continued.
In comparing the school tuxes wl'.h
that of automobile taxes Dr. Winship
said "there were never good roads
except In a few favored places until
thee were automobiles. Now then!
nro $70000000 a year paid for auto-
mobile licenses and most of that is
put into first class highways ami
boulevards. There are 8000.000 au-
tomobiles In tho United States. Every
machine pays tuxes from the time the
raw material goes Into the factory
until It Is worn out and goes to the
junk heap. More than 20 taxes are-
paid from first to last on every good
automobile. For every dollar put
Into good roads several dollars nro
put back In city county state and
national taxes. Put in the case of
schools every dollar put into good
schools Is paid back many times more
than in the case of good roads. The
upkeep of good roads is an enormous
expense to city county state nnd na-
tion but there Is not only no upkeep
in the case of a good education but
It Is a perpetual Income for the life
time of the one educated.
"Radium is the only known sub-
stance that emits heat for a thousand
vears without fuel of any kind soi
education is the tax producing radium.
Every dollar the public puts Into the
good education of a child comes back
literally a hundred fold.
"Oklahoma spends $42.15 a year In
the education of a child In eight
years that is $?.2".2S. A well educated
boy or girl living 40 years would have
to pay but $8.25 a year In taxes to
pay that back. It would be a poor
specimen of nn educated man or wo-
man who did not pay much more
than that." If he did not pay one
penny in direct taxes he would pay'
several times what his education cost
in the taxes paid by him through !
his landlord his butcher grocer j
clothier dentist druggist bexit and
shoo dealer street railway and a
multitude of other people whom he I
patronizes in various ways. I
"The goeid education of a boy or j
girl then I say Is tho biggest in-1
vestment that taxpayers can make.
And the reason I am hero toduy Is
because of the vast possibilities your
school offers for growth and devel-
opment tif the new In edui'atlon."
