DEDEAUX SCHOOL SHORT OF FUNDS. Session May Have To Be Postponed Until After September, When Money Will Be Available. Gulfport Herald. A rather peculiar situation has arisen in the Dcdeaux Consolidated School District. This school is a joint district, being operated by the coun ties of Hancock and Harrison. Recently this school was started by the Hancock county authorities, but it developed that there was no money in the fund in Harrison coun ty to pay the teachers. According to the school law of Mississippi, it is not legal to borrow money to pay school expenses for one school year from the funds which will be paid in for the next school year. Owing to this fact, County Super intendent Temming, of Harrison county, not having any money to pay teachers, could not have Harrison county’s part of the work go on. Mr. Temming has construed the law as meaning that if a county su perintendent pays out money illega’. ly, he and his bondsmen arc liable for the amount, and he does not feel that he can issue pay warrants under the circumstances. It looks as if the school session will have to be withheld .intil after September Ist, which is the begin ning of the new school year. At that time the Harrison county Board of Supervisors can borrow money to I ■— l I X " X x * X *s* X t WEATHER-TIGHTNESS. Carey Asfaltslate Shingles are T VV water-tight, sun-proof, wind-tight.

If he hadn’t they would never have reached the promised land. But apparently they did not hand down to their descend ants the very important lesson of how to clean up a camp when you are fixing to leave it. More than one land owner can tetify to this, when he visits the scene of a recent camp and finds waste paper, pieces of meat that have drawn an army of flies, dis carded boxes and more or less filth scattered about. Too frequently shrubbery and trees have not re ceived as careful attention as they should have had. The average camp er doesn’t mean to be destructive, and he doesn’t mean to ruin another man’s property. He is just thought less? that’s all. And yet, it would seem that if he wanted to do the right thing and make it more pleasant for the next camper who comes along he would treat property around him just as he would want his own treated— and he would clean up his camp be fore he moved on down the road.

EDGAR M. LANE, Raleigh, Smith County, Miss. There are times when it is not necessary to read the market page to know that eggs are not strong. Too many people go on the the ory that a liberal church contribu tion covers a multitude of sins. The way they have of reading is not the only thing that is upside down in China. Two Texas men had a fight over a can of sardines. One of them must have been trying to force the other to eat them. If the modern girl must reveal some charm to win a husband, let her reveal some ability to cook. Back in the old days, when there were no laws forbidding anything, how did people manage to have a good time? It is said that the former kaiser spends much time reading the Bible, How unfortunate he didn’t have more leisure ten years ago. No doubt every Bay St. Louis boy wonders at times how Adam and Eve got along without somebody to run errands for them. After all it isn’t difficult to earn a living. The hard part is to get it. The man who once wrote ads con cerning booze that never caused a headache is probably now writing those about soap that never makes shaving painless. Our advice to auto drivers is to never dispute with a railroad loco motive. You may reach the crossing first, but the locomotive is liable to stay longer. The only thing worse than a poor man with a big family is a man so rich he hasn’t any family. The preacher doesn’t say much about it, but it is believed he would prefer to have members of his con gregation do their sleeping at home. Our idea of the world’s champion grouch is the ice man who kicks about hot weather. Isn’t it strange how virtuous the average man can appear when he’s carrying a quart bottle of vinegar along the street? You have also possibly observed that some people will &ang a,license plate on anything that twill run. $200,000.00 ALLOTTED HANCOCK COUNTY FOR GOOD ROADS. Approximately $780,000.00 has been allotted from Federal Aid Funds by the State Highway Com mission for the construction of the Mississippi link of the Old Spanish Trail, transcontinental highw’ay con necting St. Augustine, Florida, witn San Diego, California, it has been announced by State Highway Com missioner Fred W. Smith. This high way enters Mississippi at Gainesville, north of Logtown, and follows the Gulf Coast line, passing through Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, Gulfport, Biloxi, Moss Point and Pascagoula, The allotment was made to the three counties through which the highway 7 runs, Hancock being alloted $200,000, Harrison $200,000 and Jackson $380,000. The Hancock and Harrison county allotments were made at the recent session of the State Highway Commission, the Jack son county allotment having been made from last year’s funds. Ac i cording to Federal requirements, the counties must match the amount al loted by the government, this making a total of $1,560,000, which is to be expended in the construction of this important highway in Mississippi. Up to the present time, only one project has been constructed on the road, this being Project 77, located be tween Moss Point and Pascagoula, in Jackson county, which consists of an eighteen foot concrete surfaced road. It is probable that the entire highway will be constructed of concrete, or some other type of permanent sur facing. The Old Spanish Trail has recently been recognized by Congress as being of the utmost importance, and es sential to plans being formulated by the War Department for national de fense. These plans, submitted by General Pershing, call for a system of highway's, built under Federal standards, leading to all important border and coast defense lines. The Old Spanish Trail has been projected along the route deemed necessary by the government, and it is reported that officials of the War Department will urge its immediate completion. Construction of this highway is go ing forward rapidly in all the States through which it passes, and it is hoped that in the near future the Pacific and Atlantic Coasts will have a connection, open the year around, which passes through oue of the most picturesque sections of the United States. We understand it is the intention of the Board of Supervisors of Han cock county, in due time, to issue bonds to the extent and in the amount equal to the allotment al lowed by the State, in order to meet the requirements of the government —to match its appropriation. This would give Hancock county $400,- 000.00 for good roads. READ THESE REASONS. Here are a few reasons why home folks should lend their support to a home paper—read them and see if we’re right: 1. Because when you were born it was the home paper that intro duced you to the world. 2. When you grew up and gradu ated, the home paper again gave you a nice writeup. 3. When later on you found your life companion and were happily mar ried the home paper gave you and your bride a nice notice. 4. When sickness and misfortune invaded your home, the sad news was carried to your friends and neighbors by the home paper. 5. When you had been successful in a business venture or had been promoted, it was the home paper that heralded your ability. 6. If you sold out and moved to another location the home paper fol lowed you with the news of friends and neighbors. 7. When some unscrupulous per son tried to injure your character, it. was the home paper that came to your aid. 8. Because the home paper boosts your town and its institutions, its people, its schools and churches, and helps to promote good fellowship throughout the community. 9. Because the live merchants of fer money-saving bargains and pro tect you from catch-penny mail or der fakes. 10. And last, when you're finally laid away, it is the home paper that prints consoling news of your de mise, and that extolls your virtues os the hearts of those who mourn are made to feel thankful that the home paper stuck by you from the cradle to the grave. LET MISSISSIPPI CONTROL THE HIGHWAYS. With the November elections only three months distant the proposed amendment to Section 170 of the Mississippi Constitution, giving the State Highway Department control over a seven per cent State Highway System, looms as one of the most important issues under consideration. This amendment would take seven per cent of the roads, the main trunk highways, from under the control of the Boards of Supervisors, and com bine them into one connected State Highway System, which would be un der the control of the State Jnighway Department for construction and maintenance. Opponents of this amendment hold that this is one of a series of steps that are rapidly changing the democ. racy of the United States into an im perialistic nation,, and that unless this movement is checked, another vuar ter of a century will see a United States, in which States rights are a thing of the past, and the rule of the few is supreme. Advocates of this measure, who seem to be in the decided majority, hold these views to be ridiculous and entirely unfounded, and back up their statements with facts. The amendment will in no way place a single mile of Mississippi roads under Federal authority, but will simply transfer the control of seven per cent of the roads from the counties to the State Highway Commission, which is elected by the people, and is respon sible to the people. They hold, that the fact that unles this amendment is passed, Mississippi will cease to par ticipate in Federal aid allotments, alone is sufficient reason for its i doption, since this would mean the loss of millions of dollars to this State annuallj. Fully fifty per cent of the road work going on in Mississippi at present, is being done with the aid of Federal f inds > but according to Federal law, unless the State is given control over a State Highway System, upon which these funds may be e\ pended, tn sc allotments will ,<• .-<*. Tnis clause was inserted by .he g)'- eminent in *J;e 1921 appif priatl to insure maintenance of newly con structed roads, and avoid repetition of the tremendous losses which re sulted from improper maintenance of roads built with funds appropriated in 1916. Another very convincing argu ment advanced by the advocates of the proposed change, is that a con nected State Highway System will be under the control of one entral au thority, and will be managed as a system, and not in small sections of a few miles, as is done under the present constitution. In this way, the most important roads will receive the attention of trained engineers who w r ill have the authority and equipment to watch the roads close ly, and act immediately in case of need of repairs. This, it is argued, will relieve the counties of the bur den of maintaining these roads, and allow them to devote the county tax to roads of lesser importance, which are at present neglected. WHY NOT? We have read of many recent con ferences at the White House. Presi dent Harding has had railroad mag nates in conference with a view to getting better freight rates. He has had mine operators together to talk over coal prices and conditions, and there have also been conferences of leading manufacturers. Now, since he hasn't a real, honest-to-goodness dirt farmer in his cabinet, why not call into conference a number of REAL farmers —not men who own farms and live in the city’, but men who actually live on and cultivate farms? Such a conference would be worth something to every citizen of this nation, because in a large way every citizen is dependent upon our farmers. There are enough im portant matters needing adjustment to make such a conference worth while, and no one has any means of knowing just how much benefit might come out of it. We are not trying to tell the President his business. But we can’t believe he would make a mistake if he called a conference of farmers and got their views on pres ent conditions and their opinions as to how those conditions could be bet tered.

GRANT EXEMPTIONS TO ALL NEW HOTELS. Board of Supervisors Seeks to En courage More Accommodations on Coast by Waiving Taxes. Gulfport Herald. The Harrison county Board of Su pervisors met yesterday morning to transact business for the month of August. All of the members were present. The major portion of the day was spent in transferring or changing the names of purchasers of land on the land rolls. In many cases the right name of lands is not on the assessment roll and it is necessary to have the proper name on the roll so that the proper person can be taxed for the land. The board also passed an order to exempt all new hotels and all new additions to hotels in Harrison coun ty which are begun before 1924, from taxes for a period of five years. This order was passed to promote hotel building on the Gulf Coast.
