By Ceunty Superintendent an4 Teechere Mr. D. O. McCray, "Dean of tha Press of Topeka," expresses the un limited value of tbe newspaper as a factor in education in part as follows . "I would nave tbe newspaper read and studied in every school in Kan fas. I would do this, why? Because it means more education and more intelligence. I would make the study of current events as reflected and mirrored in the Kansas newspaper compulsory, and besides the books and newspapers 1 would install the tools of manual training. The news paper takes up the thread of life where the text book stops just short of coming in contact with things which continue to happen after it has gone to pi ess. This is distinctively a newspaper age. 2Jever before in the history of the world have they been so power ful as they are today. It is the editor who impresses his thoughts upon the public, who directs popular opinion, who pleads for higher ideals and hu man betterment, who is the potent factor in communities, states and in the nation. He speaks for his locality and peo ple, and upon matters of grave local interest, he is found on the side of justice and the common good. These current events; these activities of a community fer higher ideals and social betterment; are as necessary in a child's education as are the lessons in the books. The newspapers are the life and light of today. They should be used in the schools as supplemental to the reading texts, geography, history and other studies. The day is not far away, when the Kansas teacher who is unable to sift out the important news from a news paper and teach the children its significance and bearing upon gov ernmental, business and social life, will have to surrender the position and seek other fields of labor.-' Miss Merle llitt, vice-president of the Banner district, writes that the schools will hold the spelling contests February 6. The district includes the following schools and teachers: District 41, Victory school, Miss Hitt, teacher. District 7, Banner school, Miss Rogers, teacher. District 38, Hackberry school, Mr. O'Toole, teacher. District 5, Bosna scnool, Miss Shriner, teacher. The Kansas City papers tell us that 25000 of the boys and girls there signed the Peace Petition asking the warring nations of Europe to stop fighting. They followed much the same plan used in our county print ing blank forms of the petition aud circulating them in all their schools. -irego county in addition had sufficient number of printedtogether with Miss matchless "Peace letter" to this blanks Blake's to the children, to place a copy in each home where children signed the peti tion.
