Vnder the above head, George Bish-
op. assistant editor of the Oklahoma
Fanner-<?tcK-knian, of whioh Koy Staf-

fit of states aid for building rurk
school houses and the evil of divert-
ing tie school land money intended to
be used for tiat purpose Into builling
ihe state capittol building:
Oklahoma at one time had an equi-
valent of J&.WO.O0* known as the pub-
Ik- building fund. This public build-
ing fund was very properly construed
to me.vn public buildings for educa

which already three-fifths of this pub-

Then It followed that lt would be
fair to the farmers of the state and
belter for the state as a whole if some
way could be devised whereby this
fund, or the unexpended balance of
value in it. could be set aside to aid
in giving to farmers, as far as it
would go. better buildings and schawls
for country children.
After a plan was worked out a cam-
paign was put on by the farm press
of the state, aided by a few county
