: If the disloyal foreigners in the cit
ies of Missouri have succeeded in renominating-
Jim Reed for the United
States Senate, as now appears, it is
another victory for the foes of Amer

the most trying: time in our history
was discreditable In the extreme. He

The railroad officials refused to
agree to President Harding's plan for
settlement of the strike, on one point
only. They refuse to break their prom
ise to the men who are filling the
places of the strikers and those old
employees who did not answer the call
to strike. These men were promised
permanent positions and seniority .The
railroad officials say their honor is at
take la this matter and that if their
promise should be broken to these
men who braved the wrath of the
strikers there would be no end to the
condemnation that would follow.

All teachers will report at the end
of each week all persons who neglect
or refuse to send their, children to
school. X .. ,; . : ;
The law says "each parent who re
fuses or neglects to send five days out
of each week shall be fined not less
than five dollars for each offense" and
they may be fined more. Each week is
an offense and the number of children
have nothing to do with It. You may
say that it is no use to report for the
attendance officer will not do anything
in the .n-g.
I wisu u aay to a!i teachers that the
attendance officers must work twenty
days each month and these twenty
days must be In investigating reports
made by the teachers. If the teachers
will report all persons who neglect or
refuse to send to school, the attend
ance officers will be able to make all
investigations of these cases.
Teachers will please make out their
monthly reports at the close of the
month and return to me at once.
You will notice a little farther down
the number of each district and the
name of the attendance officer under
these numbers. This will guide you
in reporting. I have some supply seats
yet and It might be well for you to re
port to me your neu. If I cannot
give you all you ask for 1 may be able
to supply in part,
If there is no trustee in your dis
trict have some one to apply for the
position at once.
I have no crayon yet and.it might
be well to find out what the merchants
have in the crayon line and buy It and
make out a bill and present It later.
Trustees: I am expecting each
trustee to look after the coaL I want
at least 100 bushels of clean coal for
each school In the county and this
coal will be paid for as soon as it Is
legally presented ajid the bill is reas
onable. I have bud some nie price
on coal this year, but I have had some
unreasonably high. I want each trus
tee to report to me at once the very
best he can do on coal and then I will
notify yon what to do,
I would like to have the coal put In
at the earliest time possible.
I have heard It said that a trustee
had no right to furnish fuel. J wish
to say that he haa as much right as
anyone else aa all bills must be sworn
to before they can be paid.
Attendance Officers: When you re
ceive a report that some one is ne
glecting or refusing to send to school
go at once to the person accused and
make an Investigation and when you
find it to be neglect or refusal on the
parents part you follow the law and
then you cannot be publicly criticised
for not doing your duty.. The teach

TO THE DEMOCRATS OF THE NINTH
CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY: ..
v The primary election for the nomination of Congres
sional candidates is drawing near.
Reports that I have received from all sections of the
district convince me that my success in the primary is as
sured if those who favor my nomination support me with
their vote. i :v .:
My only danger lies in the general belief among my
friends that I really have no race, which might result in
a large number of them remaining at home on election
day. ; : VV'
. - Many strong candidates have been defeated through
the failure of their friends to vote by reason of their over
confidence. ; I therefore beg to-express the hope that all
who advocate my nomination will support me with both
their influence and their vote in the primary election on
Saturday, August 5, 1922. , W. J. FIELDS.
