Teachers Who Jump Contracts
Lose Certificstea
Because of a number of teachers re.
signing after making contracts, a
shortage of teachers has developed in
Kansas. Some have resigned simply
to better themselves in a financial
way.. The state superintendent an
nounced recently that any teacher re
signing without good and sufficient
reason and without the consent of at
least two members of the school board
would be liable to lose their certifi
cates to teach.

Baxter Clothing Merchant Says Be
Has Bought on Contracts Before
High Prices and Will Ue Mer
chandise for Trade Daya.
"I do not believe much in special
sales as the usual thing but I an
strong for any movement like this
Dollar Days idea." said Mr. Dick Low
ry of the Quality Store yesterday.
"I am sure there are other mer
chants that will do as I am doing on
my sale covering this period of the
town's co-operative movement I
have bought large stocks of merchan
dise on contracts that ante date the
present high wholesale cost and I
want to use some of this merchandise
as a medium of acquaintance between
my store and the people of the mining
district who have not been making
Baxter Springs their trading point
und to all the trade, which our store
has not been getting.
"I like the co-operative- idea. I
don't think we can do too much to
cultivate the outside trade and make
Baxter Springs the best trading point
in this district I myself will do any
thing at any time to help strengthen
the business relationship between tne
trade and the town."
The above are just a few extracts
from Mr. Lowrys conversation. Mr.
Lowry has been of very material help
in nutting over everything of a co
operative nature the town has done
since his residence here. Mr. Lowry
backs up his theories of business by
wholehearted practice and as a mer
chant is a very great asset to the
town of Baxter Springs. Since coiu
Imr to Baxter Snrings Mr. Lowry has
been a consistent advertiser and as
such has done more to maintain a
daily paper in the town than perhaps
any other individual. Mr. Lowrybe
lieves that advertising backed up with
the right kind of merchandise at the
right prices will build up any line of
business. Lowry is a mighty valuable
man to Boxtcr Springs.
