Concerning- Amusements.
Whether we do certain things and our friends do them largely
determines whether we think they are right or wrong, also whether
we enjoy doing them has a great deal of influence with us.
This is true of almost everything concerning which people differ
as to being right or wrong.
Almost without exception the people who are opposed to danc
ing, card playing and theater going never have done these things
or have done them so seldom that they have not learned to enjoy
them. If we think it is wrong to take motor trips on Sunday, we
have not had the opportunity to take them and our friends do not
take them. Attending ball games and other forms of amusements
on Sunday playing billiards and pool and bowling are all things to
which the same rule may be applied.
We have heard people severely condemn others for attending a
ball game or going to an amusement park on Sunday and have
known these same people to go on Sunday for pleasure motor trips
We have heard people criticise and condemn other people for attend
ing dances, who think it is all right for boys and girls to join in
many other forms of amusement. We know people who are bitterly
opposed to the theater, but are regular attendants at the moving
picture shows. And so the comparison could be carried on indefi
nitely. We cannot see that there is anything wrong in doing the
things we enjoy doing, but the things others do, which we do not
know how to do or do not enjoy, we think are very wrong.
In regard to these things concerning which people differ must
not each of us determine for himself whether it is right or wrong
to do it ? Always taking into consideration how these things are
looked lupon by other people, as it may be that it is not just
prejudice that makes them think them wrong. Also may it not be
that the way we do things may determine whether they are right
or wrong, remembering that by abuse almost anything may be
made wrong.
Bond Issue For Schools.
On next Thursday the people of Hillsboro must pass upon the
question of whether they will issue $20,000 in bonds for making
improvements of the school buildings.
The improvements that will be made if the bond issue carries
are the installation of a steam heating plant and providing sanitary
toilets at the Webster building ; repair of boy's toilets and putting
in of skylight in auditorium of Washington building ; also the re
painting of class rooms in both buildings. All of these improve
ments except the painting have been ordered by the state inspector
of buildings.
In talking with prominent citizens in regard to these matters
we have found them without exception heartily in favor of making
the improvements. Most of them, however, have seemed to think
that the improvements could be made for less money than asked
for by the board. At least this was the feeling before the clear and
frank statements made by Supt. Patterson through the press last
Supt. Patterson has convinced us that too large a bond issue
has not been asked for in order to do the work as it should be done.
A makeshift policy is almost without exception false economy.
It is'foolish to think of making changes here that will answer the
purposes at the present and take no heed of the future. The sav
ing of a few thousand dollars now will probably mean the expendi
ture of several times as much in a few years.
Certainly there is no need to advance arguments in favor of
any of the improvements contemplated. Without the new heating
plant and the toilets the state will not allow school to be held in
the Webster building. The skylight and the repair of the toilets
are badly needed at the Washington building.
The children of Hillsboro should have comfortable and sanitary
school buildings. If you will visit the buildings you will find that
now they do not have them.
From our acquaintance with and knowledge of the members of
the school board and Supt. Patterson we are confident that they
will not waste the public money ; that if the bond issue carries they
will see to it that the money is wisely and economically expended.
We urge everyone to vote for the bond issue so that the schools
may be put in condition to meet the needs of the times and the
children have the opportunity to secure an education as good as
that afforded in ather towns the size of Hillsbpro. We can not
afford to be niggardly with our schools.
Is it that people get pleasure out of the discomforts and em
barrassment of others that most remarks that are considered bright
and clever are mean ?
The paragraph in our last issue that "when a girl marries she
not only takes the man's names but everything else he has" our
bookkeeper, who is of the weaker but not meeker sex, says is wrong.
Her version is that when a girl marries she not only gives up her
own name but everything else she has. And we did not attempt
to argue the matter with her.
