A ISSSf we orth nnd ono Beulh of
l!1 Bp,o but this Plan met with some
t001 Slo" m those opposed to it
m& USS hl the Proposed districts
Ton.e woad be too largo for economic and
1 2 'BiweiifoJ handling.
nSi lu "as suggested that tho proposed
k, at. comoI Walton had In mind the cstab
i n lUbment of two Junior and one junior
iw hith school, the former at Lchl and
liuf Hurt C rove and the latter at Ara--n
IcfiaFork. This suggestion, how
pota r. was strenuously opposed by
mln superintendent Crccr, who raalntnliiH
n th." , fbat It Is his pqllcy to add to rather
"own ban take from tho present high
Lav," cbwls. 'Mn fact, Superintendent
d BtrwM l eurty accord with Pro
ami (fjsor Dcnnlon's plan whereby two
feet I rears should bo added to tho present
r for I high schools, making each of the three
and schools now within the district bIx-
Utah I icar Instead of four-year high schools,
ued cuaranteelng thereby high Bchools
the I ith an attendauco of over 300 pupils
ree! It seemed to be the feeling of those
from prut that consolidation would be a
I 17 I sood thing, tho problem to be solved
Salt I being whether northern Utah county
'Hon 'H tlioulil be cons61ldated Into otic, two
er'i or three districts.
A committee was appointed to make
S of Ii survey of northern Utah county.
icon H When the resources arc 'determined
t in I and the unit of consolidation decided
ihln 'I upon we may look for a campaign in
'Ion H favor of the proposed plan, for after
all lias been said and done tho matter
r, will ultimately rest with tho people,
6, for unless they are In favor of It
ca H there will be no consolidation.
H There was, however, a decided sen
' tlment In favor of doing away with
' the present two-headed system of
management a principal of the high
C(t H Khool and a supervisor of tho gradcB,
ltu These two positions will undoubtedly
3r. H be united in Lehl next year, as they
ih I IlaTC bcen '" Pleasant Grove and other
,' H places this year.
' '' Consolidation in somo form 1b a
, coming certainty. The present double-
CJ ' headed system Is neither economical
,' oor efllclent. Not a single public
school official in this city, county or
state advocates continuing under the
psesent syBt.cm. On tho contrary, they
agree that a continuation of tho prcs-
cnt conditions will bankrupt the
schools or tho taxpayers. Consolida
te Hon apparently Is the best solution of
our educational troubles. Dut an yet
this paper refuses to commit Itself to
II any dclltilto plan. However, wo do'
favor a campaign of enlightenment,
I f,D? whcn thc factB nro aH brought to
light the wisest step should be taken.
, Th.? 8lcPs mUBt De taken with great
m deliberation, so that the local high
m school will not bo Injured in nny man-
ner or tho rights of Pleasant Qrovo
be Impaired in any manner. There Is
no necessity for haste In tho matter.
Wo will be pleased to receive com-
rnunlcntloiiB from both sides, us we
recognize there are probnbly two sides
to thc question,

Committee- of Lending Citizens Work.
In Willi Apparent .Sum's.
l-'or a long tlmo there has been talk
of building a cannery here. Monday
evening a meeting wbb held and tho
proposition assumed n definite form.
Talks wero made, all going to show
tho desirability of establishing such
an Industry here, und J. D. Wndley,
It. D. Wadley, Alex. Thornton, Charles
Johnson, Wlltord Warnick and lllsliop
Olpln were appointed n committee to
Tho committee hnu bo far met with
good success, und from present Indi
cations tho local'ltlzciiB will buck up
the proposition with sufficient funds
to Induce outsiders to supply thc bal
ance ncccBsary. Assurances have
been given by outside capitalists who
are experienced in the canning busi
ness that If the local people will show
sufficient Intel est they will Join with
a good subscription. Subscriptions
nro being made In amounts all the
way from J2G to 500, When all in
this clas3 lias been reached, then tho
$10 glass Bhould be given an oppor
tunity. Every man in tho community should
be a subscriber for some amount, and
then become a booster when Mm Insti
tution Ib built. No other Institution
could be established here that will he
so beneficial to bo many people. The
man who owns farm lund will reap
u benefit growing tomatocB, beets, peas
or benns. Tho fruit grower will he
enabled to sell his surplus peaches,
pears, apricots, cherries and berries.
Tho man who does not own a foot of
land, but has a family, will find em
ployment for his children, and every
business man in tho community will
find that an extra $50,000 left in thc
city will glvo the necessary added
impetus to his business. Not a Bluglc
man can afford ) fall to take somo
stock in a cannery.
