Fortunate Oklahoma to begin life
knowing that her district r-liools aie
bound in the hearts of the people ana
rest on a strong financial basis.
Hut It Is conceded today that our dts-
trict schools do not and cannot provide
tho moans for an education that shall
equip our children to make the best of
tholr opportunities and to meet thu
competition of the new century Wt
need something between the district
school and tho university.
To meet this isqulretnent our Inst
legislature provided for the establish-
ment of county high schools that should
wfford butter educational facilities for
pupils more advanced thitti those at-
tending district schools. Tho necessary
preliminaries under this statute ltavs
been complied with and an election or-
ucrca y me board of county commis-
sioners t take place on Tuesday No-
vember 8th to see If such a school shall
bo established In Kay county.
Tho object Is a good one. It appeals
to the highest the most noble sentiment
of our prosperous county. First aro
our district schools: they are in every
community they are a homo institu-
tion: they nil first place and only In
this fall land of ours doe such an in-
stitution exist. These district schools
aro for ill the childr. Ti. but after the
dlsttli t xchool what it. there .for the
masses what Is then- for the farmers-
children " Our unlv.-riilit-B are more
toehni-nl than priic ti.nl and their
courses more suited to professional man
than to men of buslnen. and practical
nfTnlis To congugatc a Latin verb may
help a laujer or phl. Ian but would
be of little assistance to a lad "he ln
Ills way in the wot Id."
The universities are good In their
place but what we want is n school
Just above the district school a school
especially adapted to the masses and
within reach of the farmers children.
Tho boys and girls of todny used some-
thing tn advance or the district school
some school close at home a school
that shall be thorough and offer the
advantages of a good education. In
Xnot we want a school that Is our
own. n high school that the parents of
the county can visit one whose every

personal observation ami control.

The statitto enacted by Our 1as legis-

county high schools provides as fol-
lows: Bach county in the territory with a
population of C.0OO or over may estab-
lish a county high school. When one

more than three of the trustees Hhnll be
of the same poMluil party. The county
superintendent is president of the board
and each of said trustees must give
bond for the fnlthfupl1 dlsohargo of l-.ln
duties. The board of trustees must
mnke Itomizud estimate of amount of
funds needed for building teacher and

to county commissioners.

as new buildings can be erected. The
trustees shall employ teachers make

supervision of the school.
Tuition shall be fre to all puplU ic-
sldlng tn the county. Outside pupils
pay tuition but cannot attend when

County high schools havo been estab

Btatos and in every onso they are most
satisfaptory. They hnvo not been bur-
densome the tax levy for maintenance
has been one mill to not over 1 3-lOths

experience of county high schools. Take
for Instance. Dickinson county Knnsns
There thoy have a proapercjps county

tirely inadequate to accommodate the
county patronage built an addition
costing 115.000. During the four years
that the buildings were being construc-
