SUMMER NORMAL OPENS,
Enrollment of 47
The third minnal institute for
Cimarron county opened promptly
on time Monday morning with
very flattering prospeets ft r it high-
ly successful term. Supt. Ken-
nedy hud worked long and earnest-
]y to make this term the best in
the history of the Strip and it prom-
ises to surpass his most sanguine
expectations. He has the very
best corps of instructors the 1 an-
handle affords, and we doubt if
they cou'd be beaten in the state,
and Prof. Kinsey, the Conductor'
a past master in his Hue and lias
s soul in the work.
Supt. Kennedy stated to us that
ho was endtv foring to have one of
the members of the State Board < f
Education come out and lecture to
the Normal students, lhis is a
worthy idea and the students and
citizens of the town should send
the State Board a written invita
The students are displaying a
wonderful amount of energy as
they get out to the school house in
time to answer roll call >'.t 7 a. m.
They adjourn at noon and do
their studying in the afternoon and
We notice several new faces a-
mong the normal students, most
of our former county teachers while
a majority of the new ones will,
teach for the first time this fall.
Several eighth and ninth grade pu- j
pils are taking'the work that will
very likely not try to teach this |
vear We have said many times
and iiere repeat it that Cimarron
county has a bunch of i teachers
that any county in the State may
well feel proud of. They are an
excellent lot and we axe glad to
have them in our town for a mohth.

To Teach Dry Farming
The State Board of Agriculture
of Oklahoma is making a new and
almost revolutionary departure
from their regular line ot' work.
The board has employed Prof J,
E. Payne, formerly of the Dry
Farming Station of Colorado to
have charge of the chair of dry
farming iu the Panhandle Agricul-
tural school located at Goodwell.

Largest Number Ever Enrolled Ar-
rives Early Good Omon For Cim-
arron s Futute Prosperity.
The greatest interest ever
displayed in Cimarron county,
along the lines of learning, is be-
ing manifested by the teacher
body at present. People of the
effete east may stand back for
some time and hesitate to move
into our country for fear that the
schools may not be up to the
standard. They need hesitate no
longer. It takes but a trip to
Boise City and one attendance at
the school house during these
busy days of August to show the
fot.il parent that his boy and his
girl will receive the best the world
has to give to the hoginer,
().,r people are proud of their
teachers. Our teachers are proud
of their pupils. To begin with
the majority of our teachers are in
the work because they love it.
Their close attendance at normal
and the long hours of earnest,
honest work show that.
The institute opened on Monday
with 47 enrolled and each day
adds a few new ones, One fact of
paramount interest to the home
folks this year is fliat the conduc-
tor and both instructors are home
products. Heretofore it has
seemed necessary to import mate-
rial to take this important work,
but it has recently developed that
tio better material can be found
than Cimarron county affords.
Perhaps it needed a man like the
present county superintendent to
develop that fact. Professor Ken-
nedy has shown himself from the
start to be a stickler for home
Beside the regular work this
year new work has been intro-
duced that is proving a great
drawing card. Knowing how lib-
eral our state is along free educa-
tional lines Superintendent Ken-
nedy conceived the idea of using
all the persuasion necessary to in
duce this aid. Consequently we
have with 11s for two weeks, S. W.
Black, president of the Panhandle
Agricultural Institute and Charles
T. Laughton, professor of music
and mathematics in the same in-
stution. These gentlemen are do-
ing excellent work and making
the usual routine unusually pleas-
ant. Prof. Black is delivering a
st-ries of lectures each afternoon
on agriculture, to which everybody
is welcome and our populace is
not aware of the fine opportunity
they are missing or they would be
present at 1:80 everv day.
Professor J. L Kinsey, who has
been superintendent of the Tex-
homa schools durum the past two
years, and is a resident of Hurley,
Is too well known in our commu-
nity to need further introduction.
He is the conductor. Miss Mary
McMahan and Frank L Casteel,
both of Boise City, are the in-
st luctors. There can be no doubt,
after the fine start our institute
has made, that the teachers will
declare at the finish that it is the
most successful summer school
they ever attended.
