SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1016. LOCAL POLITIC8 AND THE SCHOOLS. The lulluence of local politics In the election of city superintendents and principals of Bchools will bo an argu ment advanced for the election of theso olllclnls for a longer term than one year when the legislative commit tee of the Illinois Teachers' Associa tion frames n legislative program for the association. Tho state law pro vides that the terms of superintend ents and principals shall bo one year. Advocates of reform declare this yearly change results In n continuous fight on the part of theso olllcors to retain their positions and often means tho loss of good men through attacks on them by politicians desiring to control bonrds of education. It is snld that many of the principals and superintendents nttondlug tho con vention of the association at Spring field nro prepared to urge strongly n chango which will mako their terms from one to threo years. Tho legislative coinmltteo Is headed by Hugh S. Mnglll, Jr., city superin tendent of Sprlngllold. Tho loglslatlvo platform the coinmltteo will build Is to Include measures to tuko tho place of tho high school tuition and tho town ship high school laws declared uncon stitutional by tho Supremo Court. THE BUTTERINE TAX. Tho Chicago Dally Nows In n re cently published editorial took a strong stand against tho imposition of u government tnx on buttorlno. It enld In tho course of tho artlclo: "Members of congress talk much of their deslro to do something to rollovo the burdens upon tho poor resulting from tho high cost of living. At tho same tlmo it Is doubtful whether con gress will npprovo a specific mensuro, offered In tho natlonnl houso of rep resentatives last week by Represen tative Aswoll of Louisiana, which ought to command general support. Tho Aswell bill seoks to remove tho heavy tnx nnd tho license fees Im posed upon tho manufacture and snlo of oleomargarine Their chief effect Is greatly to Increase tho cost of that product to tho consumer. "nutter Is so high In prlco that many persons of small means find it neces sary very greatly to curtail their con sumption of that nrtlclo of food or oen to forego Its uho altogether. There aro substitutes for butter which not only nro clean and health ful food products but can bo sold much cheaper than butter. Restric tions of tho soverest kind nro placed by law upon tho snlo of theso butter substitutes, not prlmnrly In tho Inter est of consumers but In tho Interest of butter makers." MILITARY TRAINING IN HIGH SCHOOLS. Tho dispatch from Washington which says that military training llko that now In effect in Wyoming will bo installed in Chicago high schools un der the direction of Capt Stcoor of the regular army Is very good news. The "Wjomlng system," as Capt. Steever has managed It, has proved a splendid thing for boys. It combines tho advantages of tho boy scout move ment with tho3o of athletic associa tions, and adds a fow benefits of Its own. It sets a promlum on clean liv ing, discourages figaiettos, gives to lads of modest physique tho stimulus hitherto reserved for natural nthlotos. It has taught respect for authority to thousands of young westerners How much this line work inheres in mill tary training nnd how much Is duo to tho personal genius of Capt Stcevor Is an unsettled question, hut the gain to tho boH and tho country Is sure. Slowly, uncertainly, sometimes blind ly, this nation Is working out a system of defense that will square with Its In tense individualism nnd Its democratic Institutions When that system Is fin ished, wc shall bo secure Meantime, let us hurrj up our Imttlo cruisers and see If there Is not some way to mako iiltllflVPM sbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbw LLLLLH bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbV) xH LbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbK' bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbhsK ., sbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI ayaBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBKBBV' aFBFBFBFBFBFBFH ilt,- bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBKBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBkh. bubVbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI W 71 bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbM bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI sbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbby 'mLPLLLLLLLLH HBaBBHaMSsHBBPHBBBwaBSjVJPBVeieBBSBllBBV JSbBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBH WILLIAM D.
