PKESEDENT-EIECT DR: J. A.
JONES MAKES STATEMENT
Turner College being a public In
stitution, In which the general public
is more or less concerned, It Is fitting
and proper that, on account of what
appears to be a confused s'ate of ef
fairs anent the presidency, that a
statement should bo made, setting
forth true conditions. The trustee
bd-ird, at the annual session ln May,
more than a month ago, elected a
gentleman to the presidency, to fill
the placo made vacant by the death
of Dr. L. J. Johnson. This gentleman
made application for the position,
ana ioilowea nis appiicinuu uj, -n
number of strong .endorsements,
recommendations, letters of intro
duction, etc., all of which stamped
him as a very superior man for the
position. I had previously declared
that my name wouiu uinier no vn
cumstauces, be allowed to go before
tho board for r-eiectlon. Three
names were brought before the elec
tion committee. 1 being a nicmoer oi
that committee, 1 succeeded in hav
ing a certain minister of tho state
presented for election, b;it the nomi
nation met witn ueieat, -mi i"-
tleman a layman irom Missouri,
was elected. He was informed by
wiro, of his election.
When the Board met live wcews
later, no one had received a reply
stating whether or not the new
president had accepted tne position
which he had asked for. The Board,
Bishou B. F. Lee, presiding, felt that
sufficient time had been given in
which to receive such information.
After- deliberating for halt a day,
transacting business for the incom
in scholastic year, the board pro
ceeded to hold another election, after
declaring the office vacant.
A committee on election was ap
pointed, clothed with plenary power.
I had no idea that my name was to be
considered, since 1 had repeatedly
protested against such a thing being
done. When I was informed that I
was elected, it was a distinct snocK
t0 me a shock, because I was so
Certainly, 1 must coniess i-ai
feel highly complimented and great
ly honored, under these conditions. I
voluntarily resigned twelve months
ago,- even then against the protest of
many. I again reiusea tne pusuiuu
at the regular session of the board
in May. I still protested against the
use of my name at tne nieeuus m
June. But my bretnren, Dy men
vote, said I must serve. There is no
alternative. If a man is drafted,
there is nothing else to do but sur
render. I wish to say, that as soon as I
can get matters adjusted on my dis
trict work, to the satisfaction of all
norHo. mnceMied. I shall proceed to
Turner and it will not be long before
something will be "going on. iu
the meantime, I shall be pleased to
hear from any one wishing to com

DON'T LEAVE SCHOOL OR COL
LEGE NEST YEAR. FOR THE
NATION NEEDS EDUCATED
KEN AND VO-IEIT
"Boys and girls, young men and
women should make their plans now
i ;o on with their education next
year they should not consider re
maining out of school to enter Into
other definite war service," declared
Dr. P. P. Claxton, Commissioner of
"The experience of European coun
tries since the beginning of the world
war has led not only their educators
but their statesmen as well to empha
size the great importance of main
taining their schools as nearly as pos
sible at the full measure of efficiency
and of keeping the children in school.
"When the war began four years
ago, some or all of these countries
permitted children to leave school to
enter the Industries connected direct
ly or indirectly with the war service.
But they soon discovered their mis
take and have since done all that
they can to correct it. Through per
sonal representatives from these
countries and through correspond
ence the Bureau of Education and
other educational offices in the United
States have been urged to do all they
can to prevent the people of this
country from making the mistake
made by European countries.
"This has been the policy of our
office and of the whole administration
ln Washington from the day war was
declared. The President has urged
that no child should have fewer or
poorer opportunities for education be
cause of the war. The Secretaries of
War, Navy, Interior, Agriculture, La
bor, and Commerce have urged that
children should remain in school,
and have approved the constant ap
peals of the Commissioner of Educa
tion for full attendance ln schools of
all grades, Including high schools,
normal schools, colleges and universi
ties. It Is generally admitted that
this will make for strength in war
and for the preparation needed by
our people for the great tasks of
peace when the war is over.
"The war task is great and will
require for its completion the united
efforts of all our people, but we need
not and must not grind our seed corn,
Patriotism demands a full acceptance
of this policy and close and constant
adherance to it."

HOW GIRLS OP THE SIGNAL
CORPS UNIT WERE BILLETED
IN NEW YORK
Women who have been accepted by
the Government for specific duty in
Europe are well cared for in transit.
The recently appointed unit of Signal
Corps operators was billeted in New
York on the Young women s Chris
tian Association. The girls were
lodged on the twelfth floor of the na
tional headquarters building where
barracks are reserved for girls going
into war service. One of the largest
private schools in New York City
has offered accommodations for 50 of
the government women workers
during the absence of its pupils.
The young women who compose
this fourth unit of Signal Corps op
erators to answer Gen. Pershing's call
for women workers ln France are
largely of French origin or birth; all
can speak French fluently. In this
group Is a Belgian girl, a recent
student at the University of Califor
nia. Her entire family have been
killed since the beginning of the war,
and she is returning to her native
land to aid its cause by serving in
the American Army.
"Through the glass doors of the
Young Women's Christian Associa
tion Building," said Mrs. William
Hamilton Bayly, recently returned
from the annual meeting of the Na
tional War. Work Council, "1 saw
them receiving their final instruc
tions from a captain of the Signal
Corps. Then as we left they were
waiting in- the long corridor lined up
by fours. Mrs. Cushman, Just re
turned from France, was talking to
them informally as she walked about
among them telling them of the con
ditions they would encounter on the

THE PRESIDENT ON REVENUE
Onlv fair, equitably distributed
taxation of the widest incidence and
drawing chiefly from , the sources
which would be likely to demoralize
credit by their "very abundance can
prevent inflation and keep our in
dustrial Bystem free ot speculation
and waste. We shall naturally turn,
therefore, I suppose, to war profits
and incomes and luxuries for the ad- j
dltlonal taxes. 1
But the war profits and incomes
upon which the increased taxes will
be levied will be the profits and In
comes ot the calendar year 1918. It
would be manifestly unfair to wait
until the early months of 1919 to say
what they are to be. It might be dif
ficult, I should Imagine, to run the
mill with water that' had already
gone over th"5 wheel.
Moreover, taxes of that sort will
not be paid until the June of next
year and the Treasury must antici
pate them. From the President's
Address to Congress.
