come candidates for the three positions
to be filled on the school board at the
coming election in May, have consented
to make the race and in making this,
the announcement of our candidacy,' we
desire to state:
1. That we are unalterably opposed
to politics -entering into the affairs of
our public schools, oV to th use of our
school fund for the advancement of any
political party or machine, and we prom
ise, if elected, to prevent as far as in
our power lies anythingpolitical en
tering into the deliberations and actions
of the school board we shall let merit
alone be the measure by which reward.!
Is, to be gained.
Oppose Past Practices.
2. That we are unalterably opposed
to members of the school board,
who are custodians and guardians
of the fund for the education of
the children, making contracts with or
purchases from themselves as Individuals-
or from concerns with which they
are connected or in which they are in-J
terested, whereby they might profit:
and we promise, if elected, to discoun
tenance such practice.

ture x the public's money, and to the
practice and policy of running the
schools in debt and saddling on poster
ity burdens which they Fhould not have
to carry, and. if-elected, we promise to
the very best of our ability to adminis

like manner, at all times bearing in
mind the best interests of the schools

the amount of money at our disposal.
A Word for the Superintendent.
4. "We believe that vthe superintendent
of the schools should be the head of
the schools and responsible to the board
for their conduct, and, if said superin
tendent, whoever he is or may be,
should prove himself incompetent or
unworthy, ithen he should be discharged
and another who is competent and who
j; worthy should be found- If elected,
we promise to get the best man whom
we can obtain for superintendent of our
public schools, and we" shall hold him
responsible to the board for the con

efforts to destroy his usefulness by -robbing

elected, we promise to usevour best ef
forts to so conduct thp?" affairs of the
schools that -such harmony will at all
times exist. ' "
6. "While we believe in an. economical
and businesslike administration of -the
affairs of the schools, we at the same
time believe that the laborer is worthy i
of his hire, and we believe that the I
teachers should be paid good salaries, 1
talcing into consideration their services
and the high cost of living in El Paso,
and, if elected, we promise that the
teachers employed shall be paid good
salaries and in determining what are
good salaries we shall take into ton-
