"This is not because women realize any more fully than men do the vital Importance to the future of the nation of aigood clean school system, but be en use, ns the history of civilization from Its beginning to the present shows the mother's Influence Is greater than that of the father .over the chil dren of their household. It therefore follows ns a matter of course that this f added power to aid In consumntlng '-', her Ideals will be exercised to the ' maximum by her. i "No one will seriously contend that f better education will affect the ponti ff, cal alignment of the people. It will only better equip them for deciding :. how to Intelligently cast their votes on any political question. They will con tinue In the future as they have done in the past to entertain divergent f yrews as to what character of legisla te ,,t!on and of administration Is best cal , mhited to advance the Interests of the I Trote and the nation. The point I wish to make is that the question of educa tion should be exalted above political questions and entirely divorced from them "We must secure a deeper Interest on the part of all of our people In this greatest of all movements, for after all has been said and done, we can not fully prepare the children of today for the duties and responsibilities of citizenship that they might later as sume unless we succeed In getting pub lic sentiment crystalized behind all strong school movements. "I believe tills Is now being accom plished by the recent legislation which has been put Into operation and that the good results of these laws will con tinue to grow as time passes on. "I sincerely believe that the good women of our state are going to put their whole hearts, their minds, and their strength Into this movement and use the ballot accordingly. If they do tills success is certain and we will have u happier, brighter and better Kentucky." When your correspondent asked Mrs. Samuel W. Wilson, committee man on the Democratic State Cam Dnlirn Committee, for her views on the 01 w 1 "slksssssssHkk. 4 jSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSV'1' a -. i " ' -'.SSSHlSSSSSSSSW ' I liSHSiif'if' '-'SSSSSsVV'1' i1tSSwHiP'u.SSSSSKv $ &KKKi&mt lSSSSB SSkV " ffl& 'if-'M. iPiPxISH SSBx fililiPf'SHSaSSBBBS SBy v .?9hsssssssssH Mrs. John W.

We have hoped and worked for so long to take ur schools out of politics and to raise the salary of our teachers, that these new laws creating a non-partisan :. County Board of Education and fixing 1,'a minimum salary for teachers give cause for pride and thanksgiving. tThero Is every reason to hope that ' they win prove a ueciuea step in tne T-'ght direction. There Is no recent step forward, taken by Kentucky, that can compare In far-reaching Impor tance with the laws passed to Improve our educational system. All honor to our Democratic and Republican legls- l,-, la tors who passed these laws. "The newly enfranchised women of Kentucky can be of untold service uir state by electing to our County Rmirrl.4 rtt Kilnratlon thft hlirlipst rvnn t men and women available.

It lias taken Kentucky a long time to ouie to a full realization of the dis creditable position atae baa occupied la PARTIES AGREE Campaign They Are United School Problems the educational scale, but there Is evi dence on every hand that she Is now L thoroughly aroused. If she will fully realize from this time forth that edu cation can not be promoted without adequate revenue and that the neces sary funds must be raised no matter what the cost. I am sure that with the exercise of eternal vigilance on the pnrt of the men and women of the state, with an Insistent demand for Mr. Samuel M. Wilton. the best and nothing but the best for the children of Kentucky, and with a conscientious determination to reward our teachers in n way commensurnte, at least In some degree (they could not be adequately compensated), with the great work they are doing for our fu ture men and women there Is every reason to believe that Kentucky will assume and maintain n position worthy of her In matters educational." Mrs. Christine Bradley South, the assistant secretary of the Republican National Committee, gave the follow ing statement for publication concern Ing the New County School Adminis tration Law: ' "The seriousness of the crisis through which the world Is passing emphasizes the importance of educa tion as the hope of democracy. In so fur as Is humanly possible, there must be equality of opportunity for educa tion for all the children rich and poor, native born and foreign born, city and country, white and black, until Ignorance everywhere Is sup planted by disciplined information. Our children are worthy of better teachers; our teachers are worthy of better pay; democratic education is entitled to the loyal support of all. "Our schools must be forever di vorced from politics. The new County School Administration Law, when properly appreciated and properly ap plied, will accomplish this end. The best men and women In each county, regardless of political affiliation, should be selected for membership on AXvtfpty ftJVAW ' -." .W.

To secure the right of suffrage for women, we have nsteted always and everywhere that woman was Inclined to feel a more Jealous regard for the rights of childhood than man. I know of no more certain way for woman to Justify the new privilege and the new respon sibility that have come to her than by using her voice and her vote In secur ing better educational opportunities for the children of Kentucky, and by aiding in the election of county boards that will think In terms of the rights of children rather than In the Interest of any party." HIS HEART WAS RIGHT An uneducated but honest county superintendent, who lives fur back In the hills of Kentucky, recently made the following very unusual and thor oughly pointed speech to a group of people who wero Interested In the schools : "Men, when you come to vote for tho members of this here new County Board of Education, put more Chris tianity and less politics iato your vote.
