ANOTHER "SCHOOL BOtf" SETTLED

s!i(Hiting have' liecl;V tw teachers have been
ilropped; the public, has hearcl, a great dealo

would be ridiculous did they not so-vitally con

venture to say that no board of education in' the

in this territory. Educational affairs have come
to an unfortunate pass f hen a day arid a half is
devotwl to discussing the dismissal of two siib
V.nlinates in a public school. If the active heads
of the gchool ork cannot handle their business
without, forcing upon the commission the settle

an entire review there is obvious weakness in
the system or the nien'whq hinjf. .-"H"

The territorv looks to the superintendent, of
nublie instruction to check; the kind of "f-chool
politics" that ai-se in the Normal School. The
head of the Normal School is ailmittedly a man
of ability, but, rightly or wrongly, he is thenl
. jeet of much mplaiut-ou the part of the teach
ers under him. Perhaps some of jthese teachers
feel that individuality's minimized and system
is over-emphasizrtl. The ,Hlicj- of the commis

y;omplaint is to give fair, thomuglrnnd syinpa
