Auditor Baxter Would Help Mat'era
L. W. Baxter territorial Bupcrln
tendent of school Is advocating tho
Idea of consolidating school districts
in Oklahoma for tho purpose of having (
bettor schools. Ho reels that in no
other manner can tho schools bo rals
ed to the proper standar&Jiuless by
centralization. rft li
In support of Uils matter Sunt. Bax
tor believes tbttlTby consolidation all
of tho schoolchildren of tho soVeral!
districts can be brought together in
one school building. This vnuld In
time glvo tub pupils every benefit of
a graded school and would In fact
make a graded school equal to tho
graded schools in the Oklahoma towns.
Teachers bolleve That Inspiration
comes from numbors. and rivalry and
this would bo tho effect of consolida-
tion. By having tho country schools cen
trallzed the teachers making appll
cation would need to havo a b tter
training than they now havo. It would
require a normal training tir som"
thing similar ana thus raise me stana
Jard of teaclhng P.i tho various schools
Supt. BaxTor advocated that In the
now country tho school districts should
be as largo as possible comprising a.
whole township if practicable and
that If It Is Impossible for some of the
pupils to reach the school building
for the directors to arrange a means
of transportation. It will be much
harder in tho opinion of Supt. Baxter
to arrange largo districts and central-
ize tho Bchool after the districts aro
onco 'ormed than it will bo at the
present 'tj. or as sooa aa tho amount
of money sufficient for tho sti tin? of
the schools can bo secured.
It Is very probable that Supt. Baxter
