The Citizen hat riven much publicity to the two educational amendment that are to be Toted upon In November, thru its editorials and special ar. tk-lea written by Prof. C. D. Lewis and others. However, we have been informed that Indifference character ise the altitude of a great number of our citiieni toward these amendments. A certain brand of politician that Is to be found in the raaks of both the Republican and Democratic Tarty la pro testing aifainut the amendments. The first amendment has its purpose, the. removal of the Office of State Superintendent of Public Instruction, from the list of political offices, and making it an appointive office, based on the merits and qualification of the appointee. Titer might be reason for objecting to making the Superin tendent an appointive official. If hia selection were left to a "party bis,'' or to the Governor, who could use the position for the benefit of a favorite, such opposition would be justified; but it ha been made clear that the new Superintendent will be re. moved entirely from the constitutional list of elective offices, and there will be no constitutional record of the existence of such an trffice. Then the State Legislature will create a new office known as the Superintenilency of Public Instruction, whose head shall be appointed by a non-partiun Board of Ktlucation. To be sure sacl a position will fall heir to the frailties of mankind, but no matter what the condition may Le, it will never be as bad as our present status. Am elective officer as head of our Public Schools, going in on the wave of a particular political victory without any particular staadard of qualification, a man foisted upon the children for four year In spite of incompetence, and unable to succeed himself, should he prove to be a brilliant and able educator ia unthinkable. If man i apoor superintendent, four year la too long for him. If fte ia a good one, four year is far too short. We Must pas this amendment. The second amendment makes an educational budget for the Stat of Kentucky with ten per cent of the total school taxes set aside as a subsidy fund to help the poor an I needy counties whose ritisens, tho unfortunate in finances, are as truly Kentucky's chil dren aa the richest sons of the State. Our richer communities owe an obligation to our poorvr communities so fas as giving them the advantages of public education is concerned. We must be liberal minded, patriotic citizens, looking to tho welfare of Kentucky as a whole and not provincial and isolated in spirit and in act Let us pass this second amendment.

HEALTH FAIRY BROUGHT TREAT TO BEREA The performance given on Monday by Miss Raymond was quite a treat. She impersonated the health fairy to perfection with a bubbling, overflow of good spirits. The children were delighted with Miss Raymond, as were also the parent and teacher who attended the meeting. The following schools came In a body: Mrs. Moody's school at Bob town, Mr. Freeman's school at Todd schoolhouse, Mattie Blythe with . the Midillebiwn school, Mr. Mat Gentry with the Berea colored school, Mr. Gutherie with Big Hill pupils, the Berea Public School, and the Train ing School from Knapp Hall. There were in addition about one hundred parents and townspeople. Had the weather been fair the community would have attended better, but for the day the audience was very good. Dr. McCormack, Secretary of the State Board of H.'alth, Miss Wil lianuion, head of the Public Health Nurse in Kentucky, and Dr. South erlan came with Mia Raymond. After the Health Fairy' torie and plays, Mis Raymond and Dr. McCormack held a conference for teacher and parent. Miss Raymond plead for work on the part of teacher and parent to replace tht evil with good, not to try to eradi cate evil by mere commands. The only way to improve the health of the children Is to make health habits much more attractive than unhealth ful practice. Dr. McCormack gave some very startling information. Statistic show that Kentucky stands forty, fifth from the top in education, whicn means she is very near the bottom; her death-rate from communicable diaeases is about the highest; and her tuberculosis and typhoid situation is probably the worst of any state. Typhoid spells ignorance ' and care lessness. The people who attended the per formance and conference are profuse In their praise. It was very unfortu nate that more of the people in the community did not take advantage of this opportunity, and that several of the rural school were kept from coming to the meeting thru the lack of cooperation on the part of educa tional officers. Mis Raymond gave 'many suggestions for the teachers and took the name of those who wihh to receive helpful literature. The successful health crusade un der the guidance of Miss English and the Junior Red Cross was th cause of Berea's obtaining Miss Raymond from the State Board of Health.

It was our best trip fairly calm sea, cool breeze so that 'we were heartily glad to exchange the extraordinary heat of this past summer for the purple seas of the tropics; a pleasant crowd aboard, which included three Y. W. C. A. sec retaries, eight Methodists and seven of our own organization. On tho eleventh day we saw our first land and ships since losing sight of the Jersey coast the low palm-fringed coast of North Brazil, with its vast undeveloped hinterland whose outlet is largely Pernambuco. While pass ing this port I wrote to a number of dear Brazilian friends' who, however, have been in touch with us both in the States and here in Rio. Our first day were occupied in getting case thru the Custom and then in hunting a house, which we found no more difficult than at home it couldn't be, very well. In my next letter I wish to speak of our home and then of our work among the several thousand students of the capital of Brazil. Just now we send our love and good wishes to all in Berea. The Citizen is a welcome and valued link of friendship to ua all. As time goes on it may very well be that students both here in some of the eight schools of college rank and students in Berea' will find thru us a means of communication which will be valuable both to those con cerned and alo to both of the coun tries. This may be extended to the professors as well, who, here, are very anxious to be in direct touch with those of the same interest in the United State. Cordially, Waldo B.

ELIZA BETH SPENCER j Is it possible for a singer to sing a duet with herself? Can a living voice and the same voice RK-CREATED on an instru.l ment be so identical in tonal quality, that they cannot be distinguished, one from the other? ! Has science achieved a triumph that marks the davn of a new day in ths art of music? These are rome of the questions questions in which every person of culture must tuke a deep interest thot will be answered at the recital to be given at the College Chapel, Friday, Sept. 30. Invitations to this nffair, at which Elizabeth Spencer, the celebrated American Concert So prano, will sing, have been received by many prominent musicians of this city, and interest in the coming af fair seems to be keen in musical cir cles. The appearance of Miss Spen cer, of course, would be sufficient to arouse the enthusiasm of music lovers here, the fact that she will lend her superb voice to the laudable work of revealing conclusively that the marvelous achievement of the RE-CREATION of musical sound has been attained auds immeasurable in terest to the occasion. In the coming Recital, Miss Spen cer will sing in comparison with her voice as RE-CREATED by the New Fdtson, to enable those in the audi ence to judge whether or not the liv ing voice can be made to live forever. A superb program has been arranged a program that will reveal alb of the fascinating qualities of the glori ous voice of Miss Spencer. At times her living voice will be heard alone; at times she will sing in unison with her RE-CREATED voice; at other times she will sing duets with her self. The audience will try to pick the two golden threads of tone apart to say which one live for a mo. ment and which one has been made immortal. Can it be done? Cards of admittance may be secured from MUNCY BROS, Main street, Berea, Ky, if you wish to hear this question answered. i NO TRUE BILLS IN KLAN CASE Loa of Clark-Tylr Rtcord Doe Not Bring Indlctmtnt at Atlanta.
