In Tiiii nno ,! nuii,
The sister state north of the Ohio
! voted upon a question that Is Jto be
J submitted to the voters ojt Kentucky
'in November. v The proposition was
I whetlier or not the office of superin-
tendent of schools, now elecUve.
shall be made appointive,
In Indi
ana It was defeated.
It was a shock to those public
officials and educational leaders, who
claim to have a panacea for educa
tional ills in the two amendments
which go before the voters this year,
when the result from Indiana be
came k'nown. To those who have
been watching the press of the coun
tryside and converse with the In
habitants of the rural neighbor
hood, the vote was 'what was ex
pected. Until the battle for and against
the amendments came out into the
open, it was amusing to watch the
efforts to place political blame for
the opposition. The lending Repub
lican daily in the state uccused the
Democratic press of standing In the
way of all progress because the ma
jority of the rural publications
which are Democratic in this state,
opposed the amendments.
Whatever guilt there may lie in
fighting the proposed changes, how
ever, soon was shared by a promin
ent Republican, Lliburn G. Phelps,
secretary of the Republican state
central committee, announced that
he bad accepted the leadership of
the "antis."
Chesley H. Searcy, chairman of
the committee, said he was willing
to leave the matter to those experts
in it, and Is taking no part. It ap
pears, however, that certain G. O. P.
leaders are piqued that a member
of the committee should have be
come involved in the squabble.
Open fire from within his own
party was directed at Mr. Phelps by
George Colvin, superintendent of
public instruction. lie contended
that all of the Republican officehold
ers were pledged by their 1919 pint
form to the changes proposed, but
Mr. Phelps showed thnt Mr. Colvin
quoted only a portion of the plat
form plauk In his attack, and that
far from being pledged to making
the office appointive, the plank com
mits the party to election or re
election - under non-partisan em
blems. Governor Edwin P. Morrow pro
jected himself into the debute In ad
dressing a school meeting In Louis
ville. He supports the two amend
ments. To demonstrate his lack of
partisanship in the matter Governor
Morrow advanced the names of five
Democrats and four Republicans h"
would place upon the board to select
the superintendent of - instruction
and direct the welfare of the schools.
The five Democrats he has select
ed are Lewis C. Humphrey, editor of
a Louisville newspaper; Morgan
iluK'itr, of Bowling Green; Charles
H. Ellis, of Sturgls; Mrs. Samuel M.
Wilson, of Lexington, Democratic
vice'ehiarman of the 1920 campaign,
and Henry Berry, Owensboro. The
four Republicans selected are R. C.
Ballard Thurston, Louisville, his
torian; Lem Putnam, Ashland; Miss
Belle Bennett', of Richmond, and
Luke Dudley, of Flemingsburg.
The dispute rages over the merits
ot whether or not the amendments
will take the schools out of politics.
Those who favor them cay they will:
their opponents say not. Gov. Mor
row insists that their passage is
vital to the welfare of the schools.
The rural opposition centers about
the fa,ct that it Is another move to
take from the public the control of
its own affairs and to centralize
power In an executive. ' It la clear
that side tn the matter are not

Ilustil on Killing of Sin-riff
The blanket indictment charging
those named with being principals
and accessories to the killing of
John Gore, Deputy Sheriff of Logan
County, was based on an alleged
violation of the Redman Act. That
act classifies such deaths as murder
In the first degree.
Gore was killed August 29 in an
exchange of shots between armed
men and dppn'ty sheriffs in the enst
ern part of Logan County during the
attempted march across that county
of a number of men who had an
nounced their intention to proceed
into Mingo County, and there pro
test state martial law invoked sever

The special grand Jury further
held In the indictment that a "con
spiracy to inflict bodily harm and
punishment" had existed nal that
as "the result of such conspiracy
Gore had come to his death."
The remainder of the indictments
charged "conspiracy to foment revo
lution and insurrection," and 'the
carrying of weapons In violation of
the Johnson Law."
