Their warning is good, and comes
from a bunch that knows just what

out of date garment is treasured by

Mi st Manchester take—and re
tain—a back seat in matters edu-
cational? It begins to look like
such is the case. Medford last year
built a magnificent 340,000 schoo
building, and is now ranking with
the best towns in the state in such
matters. Wakita boosters got busy
and pushed through a bond issue
which resulted in a §16,000 schoo
building. (We believe that is the
correct figure. A n y w a y it
worth §16.000.) And now Gibbon
has voted §6,000 bonds to put up
a fine big building for school pur-
poses. Why must the schoolchild-
ren of Manchester attend school in
a building which is inadequate, un-
safe. and disgraceful in appearance
We believe the people in this town
can afford better school facilities,
and we further believe that they
will not be averse to furnishing bet-

not get right in this matter? Why

because some people are sore on
Charley Haskell, you try to make
them believe he is governor of Ok-

the people or to Mr. Cruee, who ,s
actually governor, and has been for
some time. If you doubt that he
is governor, ask some of the fellows
