On Saturday, June 12, 1915, the voters of Ceredo District will be given an opportunity to vote on the question of establishing a High School at the Cen tral Graded School Building, near Dunleith. If es tablished our boys and girls would be enabled to se cure at home the same two*year course they now re ceive at Marshall College and Ceredo in a like period of time. And instead of the patron having to pay for books and board for the child sent away to school he would make a clear saving on these two items. The Board of Education would furnish the books and the child would board at home. Now we have the building and $4,000 in the building fund, which amount would not have to be touched; and we have $2,300 in the teachers* fund. In addition thereto we would receive annually from the state the sum of $400. This you will readily see would enable us to conduct the High School without j increasing the present levy one cent, and at the same time would permit the pupil to receive at home the same education that costs on an average of $1 a day by attending school elsewhere. Another thing. If the High School proposition is voted down, our Board of Education, under a late law, would be compelled to pay each pupil who at tends school out of the county the sum of $2.50 per month for nine months, or a total of $22.50 per year. With thirty students attending at the above rate, together with the $400 to be derived from the state, would more than support the proposed High School. So, Mr. Citizen, bear these facts in mind when you go to cast your vote next Saturday and help place old Ceredo District on a higher school plane. TAX-PAYER.
