THfc DAILY MTOMORtTTB
S0H00L BOARD MEETING
THAT USE OF
BOOKS IS BEST.
Therefore the Changes Along That
Line Will be Very Slight School
Premises and Wells are to
be Thoroughly Cleaned.
The kcIio'jI board met yesterday af
ternoon and the meeting was given
over to a discussion of school affairs.
One of the main things that came up
for consideration was the adoption ot
the text books in the schools ami It
was rho consensus of opinion that
there should he the least possible
change In the text. In other words
there will bo only n slight departure
from the boolis used last year. How
ever, the changes adopted will not be
material and the action of the board
was In line with the advice of the new
superintendent. Prof. Kvons who be
lieves In a stable course 01 study.
In doing this, the board adopts the
theory that u change of text Is burden
Mime to tht; people, and that It Is far
better to adopt the boolis heretofore
used than to make changes, which
would create some confusion.
Among other matters discussed was
the boundaries of the schools, but this
proposition was p.nsed over till Fri
day afternoon when tint board will
The school premises were ordered
cleaned anil the wells also put In con
dition. IJv.ylhliig will be In first-
class condition when school opens on!
Indications are that the coming
school year vlll be omi oj the greatest
over known. Thu '? of teachers

ullths are amide. With Prof. Kvans,
