? THE APPOINTMENT OF TRUSTEES *
By W. C. Wharton.
? >'...? . ?......^...i..!.fff??
To the Bdttor of The Advertiser:
At the fust meeting of the Trustee
association of the schools oi* I.aureus
county the question of whether to al
low (-noh school to elect its own trust
tees or have the county hoard of edu
cation appoint them, came up. About
OS of the 100 trustees present favored
the appointment by the county board
of education, As wo hove said on sov
eral occasions, too little Interest is
taken In securing trustees for our i
schools. This is a self-evident fact
and is very forcibly Impressed upon
one's mind when he sees some of the
men who are serving as trustees In
some of our schools in l.aurens Coun
ty today. Now. Brother Trustee, don't
you think we have you spotted and arc
doing all this talk about you. We cer
tainly do not intend a word of it for
you; unless you are not doing your
duty as a trustee to your school. II
this bo the case, we intend every word
of it for you and wo w isii svu knew
how to put it stronger. Now don't you
fly off the bandle and "cuss tis out" in
next week's paper, for folks will know
you are one of the sorry trustees we
are getting alter, remember "the hit
dop bowls.'" Just mend your ways by
doing your duty and say nothing about
it and no one will know that we talk
ed about you and that you were once
upon a time a sorry trustee. We want
to tell you right now. If you expect
one teacher to teach 50 scholars, il
you arc not Irving to get a special
levy on your district 1 > improve your
school, it' you are liol trying to in
crcKKO that short term school of youru
by applying for some of the Garrl?
fund, you are not doing your duty.
1 f you want to pay your leaehor tho
salary of 20 yours ago. If you are op
posed to levying extra tax in increase
the usefulness of your school and to
give the children a decent building in
which to go to school, you uro out
of date and need to be remodeled with
correc t and Just ideas In keeping with
and worthy of modern limes.
Not every good man nor well-to-do
j man Will make yon a first class trus
tee. Unless a man is willing to give
Ol Iiis time, money and visit his school
occasionally. Inquiring Into the work
ings of bis school, he ought not to be
a trustee. Yes. we believe trustees
should be appointed and not olectcd
and we will undertake to give some oi
our reasons for thinking so. An elec
tion is called to secure I rush es for
school A. The lime rolls around, it Is
a busy season, cotton and corn need
working and only a few, seine times
five or six, are present. After waiting
n while old brother Drown gets us and
says: "Well to get things started I
nominate my neighbor I'.i'.l Jones over
there for one of our trustees, i'.ill
Join a' son-in-law seconds the nomina
tion and Jones Is elected. To return
the compliment, .lone:-, nominates
Brown and ho Is elected. There sits
old neighbor Smith, it Just won't do
to leave him out and consequently be
is elected ami that is the way your
trustees are (irst. elected. At the next
election, to keep from having any hard
feelings, in the community, some good
old brother moves that the present
board be reelCCted. and they are.
j So Messrs Brown, Jones and Smith
get a life sentence as trustees ol
school a. Whether you believe it or
not a lot of (dections are after this
stylo. You say you have no voice In
who your trustees are going to be it
they are appointed and this is not
right. If you nre at all interested you
can very easily have a voice. Let
some one get up a petition to the coun
ty board of education asking them to
elect Certain men for your trustees.
Have a majority of your patrons sign
this petition, and before you finish ?,el
ling the petition signed you will have
a fair idea what men the majority want
Take this petition to Superintendent
Pitts and you will get the men you
want, You may say ibis Is loo much
work. Well it takes work to accomplish
finvt!i!r*c. If you don't want (o bother
with a petition lot every man in your
district speak to Superintendent Pills
when you see him and toll him whom
you think would make good trustee!
for your school. Superintendent Pills
will soon find out the will of the ma
jority and will make the appointments
accordingly. Pitts will not toll tho
other follow you asked to have him
left out and someone put in his stead
So don't he afraid to speak to him
about this. Do It at once for they will
be appointed about July ist.
Patrons. If you do not speak to Sup
erintendent i'itis about ibis mattet
nor get up tho petition and are not
suited with the appointments made,
just blame yourself. The above re
marks (ome under the work the I'rus
tee association of tho schools of l.au
rens county. We will not enter into any
discussion with anyone in the papers
on this subject. Those are our views
and if you differ arid want to air your
Ideas, on Ibis subject, you have that
