Some Suggestions From Superintendent
State Superintendent Stryker makes
several admirable recommendations for
the betterment of the public schools that
should receive attention. It is notorious
that the school tax of the State Is very
unequally and unjustly laid, but no feas
ible plan has been proposed for correct
ing the wrong. A less general lut none
the less positive evil Is the cost of main
taining an excessive number of schools
In sparsely peopled parts of the State.
Mr. Stryker makes four important and
In the main businesslike and practical
suggestions for improving these condi
tions, as follows:
"First The number of districts and
the number of schools should be reduced
and provision made for the transporta
tion of those too far from school. This
will prevent a great waste of money now
paid for buildings and teachers and Inci
dental expenses for keeping up so many
"Second A State levy for school pur
poses which will distribute tho burden
of taxation more equitably, and which
should be sufficient to pay at least ono
third the expenses of an eight months'
school in every district with an average
attendance of twenty or more. Each
school should have that many pupils,
and uo term should be less than eight
"Third A higher standard pf quali
fications for teachers. The age limit
should be raised, as should the educa
tional and professional requirements.
One reason why so little progress has
been made toward Improving the condi
tions of our rural schools is that friends
of education have not united in demand
ing certain few things.
"Fourth Yearly employment, with
house and garden furnished, and pay suf
ficient to warrant undertaking the re
sponsibilities of home and family and
the making of teaching a life business."
These four recommendations are not
urged in a dogmatic way by the State
Superintendent, but are thrown out as a
plan to bo considered by teachers, super
intendents and persons Interested In the
school system and as subject to amend
ment and debate. Topeka Capital, No
vember 12, 1837.
More About Republican Bosses.
Speaking generally, the elections In
Kansas suit us mighty well.
The returns so far received Indicate
that we have flailed the opposition from
Dan to Becrsheba, and from Colorado to
Unles3 we make fool3 of ourselves we
will repeat the dose and then eome more.
We will clean out the State House
even as Joshua cleaned out the Amala
kltes, and the balance of the Philistine
The only thing we need fear is the
bossism of political leaders who are look
ing out more for selfish gain than for the
good o? the party or the State.
However, we won't monkey long next
year with political bosses.
If political bosses holding government
positions undertake to run the machine
we will walk on them for a spell and
then cast their mangled remains over
the outer wall. Topeka Mall and Breeze.
Give the Bosses a Vacation.
There are a whole lot of "wheel
horses" In the Republican party in Kan
sas that need a vacation, and need it
badly, for the party's sake. A large
number of them have been more or less
responsible for the overthrow of the
party twice, and it should not be per
mitted again. The Tribune doesn't be
lieve In any young crowd or old crowd
business, nor does it believe that a bat
tered old hulk of a man who has made a
failure of everything else is entitled to
bo for the whole of his natural life a
charity charge on the party Just because
he made a few good campaign speeches
at some time or other. Energy, busi
ness capacity and good practical horse
sense are requisites to faithful public
service, and these tests must be ap
plied, even if it Is necessary to take the
hair off a few standing candidates of the
ncver-sweat, never-let-go kind, and the
Tribune is prepared to do its part. Kan
