He Wants to Be a Fighter While there are 198 boys attending the Globe high school eligible for military training, it has not been in troduced in the school, according to Major Linton, inspector of high school cadets, who returned yester day from an inspection trip which included the mining center. Major Linton refused to discuss the matter other than to say that the school of ficials claimed that they did not have an instructor who had time to devote to the work. He made no comment relative to the failure of the school to qualify. "The matter will be covered in my report to Adjutant General Ingalls, said the inspector. The only other high school In the state, it Is understood, that has not taken up military training Is the Mesa High school, claiming that this was due to a shortage of teachers. In a report to the adjutant general relative to the attitude of the south side Institution Major Linton stated that he took up he mater wih O. S. Stapley, one of the school trustees. "Mr. Stapley told me,"' said Major Linton, "that the matter had come up at a meeting of the board. In the earlv art of the term and that the faculty of the high school had ad vised against having the training this vea.- on account of the shortage of teachers, and not at the time having anyone available who was capable of giving this instruction, 'xne teacners had also questioned the advantage to be trained in taking military training. and pointed "out that other schools did not take it, and were not penal ized for so doing.'' "While Globe and Mesa have fallen down on carrying out military train ing in the schools, his inspection up to date has, been most satisfactory elsewhere, reports the major. Miami has a splendid cadet unit of SO. while in Safford, Clifton and Duncan, the training won the approval of the in spector. Major Linton will leave this morn ing for an inspection trip which will take him to Douglas, Wilcox, Bowie and BIsbee. uMliliEfiS' An unusual feature of the two-day examination which began at 8 o'clock yesterday morning at the school ad ministration building, under the su pervision of A.

W. Cog gins, a taxpayer, brought mandamus proceedings against the county school superintendent, county treasurer and school trustees of district 1, to pre vent the issuance of warrants to teachers bearing interest at 8 per cent when there is no money In the treasury. Under paragraph 270? of the civil code, 1913, no warrant oouid be drawn on the fund unless the money was in the school fund. It "was con tended that the act of the last, legis lature repealed the former act, the laier act providing that the warrants issue and bear interest at not less than eicht per cent. On the other hand, it is held that the old law is still in effect and the new law invalid on three grounds; first, that the act did not fix a cer tain rate of interest; second, that the title of the act did not cover the subject of interest, and third that it is class legislation In that it allows the rate of interest to school teach ers to be 8 per cent while other war rants are drawn at the rate of per cent. o ARRIVES TO ASSIST Vi EF SG AGENT F nn u nu U II IU1I i MIV SHI BIDS TO BE SOLD THUDS.
