Prof. Hvatis compliments the edito rial In the Ardmorelto for tho stand that this paper has taken on Uio edu cational question. Tho article It ns follows: "The editor of the Atdmorelto sein ed iiikjii a call made to all teachers within tho coiitlnc of tho county of Carter by Mr. W. II. Clifton of Her wyn and made It a clarion note for one or tho best declarations of princi ples for public schools that has been sounded. It Is a safe harbinger for progress In any state when a sincere and caiwhle press devotes Its energies and editorial columns to a direct ap peal for schools. "It is well to glvo close perusal n all reports coming ftom the work In tho constitutional convention nt Guth rie. Never did n people liaio moro nt stake, neier did a pqlo havo such opportunity to build well for nil time. Such assertions are not platitudes, they are axioms taken from otT the pages of history. Hut I question very much tho wortli of work nt Guthrie Hint will glvo tho Judiciary or county ctitindnrlcs In their report more time or consideration than that of tho tho committee on education. It Is a work second to nothing to form laws so that every child born nnd reared In tho stnto of Oklahoma shall have tho best chanco In life iioBslble. Thnt tho business of being born to n llfo of hnpclesH toll be reduced to a min imum. And I am Justly proud that 1 live In a city wIitp tho papers cry out very often to the "men nt r.uthrle" 'llewnre, gentlemen, how jon treat Oklahoma's Kchods and children.' "As to Mr. Clifton's call for n coun ty meeting of teachers, It Is timely and best. Tho best canity In tho new stnto can not get busy too booh over such a thliiK as ItH public school Interest. There may bo some matters calling for care and caution nrlslng from n passing from territorial to stnto gov ernment.
