Back of the announcement that Pres
ident McFarland of the KentucKy Ed
ucational Association will appoint a
special conmmittee to draft and sub
mit to the'association at its meeting
in Louisville, beginning April 30, an
"educational policy" is a' story that
the school men of the State are aD
prehensive that the agitation for re-
itrenchment in State affairs will be
diverted by politicians to the hurt of
the educational campaign.
The decision to draft a systematic
policy was made at a meeting of prom
inent school men, the head of one of
the big educational institutions and
one or two Louisville men. who have
been active in furthering the campaign
against illiteracy. They met in Louis
ville at a hotel, and, it is said, all of
them agreed that not only is there
danger of the schools being made to
bear the brunt of. the retrenchment
nut there are signs that some politi
cians in their desperation will en
deavor to save the privilege hereto
fore enjoyed by their favored friends
bymakinga big showing of economy
The danger, as they see it. is the
more acutebecause there is always to
be expected a reactionary tendency
after popular enthusiasm has reached
the highjpoint attained, as it has in
the campaign for educational advance
ment that has been going on in Ken
tucky for several yeara. Under "cover
of this, they believe, politicians can
undo much that has been accomplish
ed and hamperfurtber progress unless
the school teachers and trustees stand
together to hold what has been gained
and keen public sentiment in their
communities in support of the schools.
This feeling emphasized the import
ance of brjngingjthe trustees into the
Kentucky Educational Association,
and vigorous efforts are being put
forth to urge them to attend and or
ganize as a department ot it. Thev
will have a "round table" of their own.

session Wilbe devoted to it. All de
partments will adjourn their confer

By thattime, it is expected, infor

Superintendent of Education Barks
dale Hamlet issued a call for every
educator in ' Kentucky to meet in
Frankfort April 2, 3 and 4lor the pur
pose ot forming an organization to

Phone Merger May Jail Through
The services of Attorney General
Garnett were requested Friday by a
committee of citizens of Woodford,
Jessamine, Scott, Bourbon and Fay
ette counties, who visited Frankfort
to aid them in a suit to test the consti
tutionality of the recent act of the
Legislature providing for the merger
of competing and parallel telephone
and tplfieranh lines, with the consent
of theFihcal courts and the City Coun

three times as much at the same cost
