THE SCHOOL LAW. r
Request for Copies Will be Complied

County Superintendent of Education ^
E. H. Aull makes the following state- ?
I have had several requests fron
school trustees for copies of the ^
school law. I am gratified to have the
trustees inquire about the law, be- J
cause it is evidence of their interest in
the work and duties of the trustees. I (
would be very glad to .furnish, ^opies
of the law, and would be glad also to
have all trustees familarize themselves ,
with their duties, but just at present ^
I have no copies of the school law on (
hanH anart frr>m thp statutes. Tn an
endeavor to comply with these re- ^
quests, I wrote the State superintend. .
ent of education, requesting that he'
send me some copies, to be furnished |
trustees, and have received the follow- ,
irjg letter, which explains itself: I
"As you already know, the 1912 ses- 1
sion of the general assembly adopted ]
a new compilation of the code. The x
publication of this work was entrusted
to the code commissioner and the i
code committee, of which Hon. G. S. ^
Mower, of Newberry, is a member.
"The State superintendent can not t
publish the school law until the code
becomes accessible. A premature, ha,s- t
ty, or incorrect edition sent out from
this office woultMo injustice to every ]
one connected with its publication. I i
am doing my utmost to furnish the ,
pamphlet at the earliest possible mo- }
ment, but up to this time I,have not
been able to secure an advance sheet i
of that section of the Code dealing j
with frpp nnhlir education. ,
"Your experience as a law-maker,
and your intimate knowledge of pub!ic
affairs, will enable you to understand
this situation fully. ]
"I am writing Mr. Long a full state- .
ment of these conditions, and shall
take pleasure in sending him a copy
of the law as soon as the pamphlet is (
ready for distribution. . ,

As soon as I can secure copies o? 2

them to any trustee who would like
to familiarize himself with the duties
