"Honesty Is the Beit Polioy."
Not away years ago a young man

the advertisings manager a great
Chicago -paper. After .fifteen years of
service in that, capacity, he was ten-
dered a banquet last week and at
that banquet one of the basic causes
of his success .iras laid bare. He
told the truth.
Believing that "honesty was tne
best* policy/' he went to Chicago
when" it was the prevailing custom
to solicit advertising by boosting
circulation statements and making
all manner of false claims. This
man told the truth from the start so

The Pioneer policy is the truth tell
ing policy. Its statements of cir
culation are based on. genuine circu
lation. Genuine circulation is not a
constant amount 4u something that
varies -from time to time according
to the season and other limiting
forces. The Pioneer, mailing .lists

The movement for consolidating
schools is one which does not appear
to be thoroughly-understood by the
average- citizen. It is the plan of
the state to have certain adjacent
school districts combine, put up a
building -inr a convenient place and
then by means of busses bring ia the
children^ who have to coma long dis
consolidated district must con
tain at least eighteen sections and
must .maintain at. least a two room
school which meets certain require
ments as to heat, ventilation, sanita
tion, etc. In a few wordsit must
be a modern building. To a district
which will build and equip a two
room building,- the state will give
760 per year as aid to a district
which will build and maintain a four
room or larger building, the statef
will give 11.600 as aid.
In return for this aid, the state
requires that the district furnish
the school children free transporta
tion to and from the school. This
is usually done by busses which are
canvas covered and heated in the
winter. In some districts the chil
dren, are brought in from distancea
Of from one to ten miles, each day.
The driye la usually made by a man
at tWfar end of the route and the
average pay is $400 per year. One
bus will usually accommodate a tour
The difference between the cost of
the transportation and the state aid
goes lo the school funds to be need la
the establishment of induetrial
courses such as agriculture, domes
tic science and manual training. By
combining, the districts are also en
abled to save on teacher hire and so
Obtain a more efficient class of teach
ers by being able to pay them higher
salaries. The big advantage is that
it gives a system of graded schools
and the benefits of such a system,
Beltrami county now has six con
solidated school districts-more than
any other county in the stateand
Blackduck needs but two more sec
tions in the district before it
will be a consolidated school. That
the new system is best is attested to
by the fact that once a school dis
trict consolidates, it never goes back
to the old iiaay. Fortunately for
this county, W. B. Stewart has been
re-elected superintendent of schools
and the next two years will probably
see a marked increase in the number
of consolidated districts.
