an inTeMWklbjant.
Raports I rum the State on our
work are most encouraging. The
appeal-of the State Salaries Com
mittee, seemingly, is meeting
with hearty response. From towai
after town come.reports of raises
in salaries and of steps looking
toward larger revenues for schools
The people neened but to realize
the danger to their schools, invol
ved in the reduced value of mon
ey, and it is reassuring to observe
that they understand and appre
ciate the importance of their
schools and have no notion of sac
rificing them to any chance ef
fect of economic change or to the
demands of any other call what
soever. There is no doubt that,
in the many and urgent demands
for money and more money in
these emergent times, the schools
easily come first in the purposes
of the people. But a danger lies
in the likelihood that too small
an increase will be deemed suffi
cient. The shift in economic val
ues has been great an I only a
large increase in the figure of
school revenues will be able to
meet it. The whole of the higher
cost of living—for teachers and
for schools —most be provided
fur; an( also the schools must be
invigorated for meeting the prob
lems and the opportunity of the
reconstruction period. •
The opportunity is before Miss
issippi as it has never been since
1861 to take its place again in
the vanguard of progress and pros
perity ; but this opportunity can
be fulfilled only in properly e
quipping the youth of the State

A large number of friends of

met at Lexington Wednesday for
the purpose of completing the
organization of Mr. Beall’s home

of the meeting that Mr. Beall was
entitled to an introduction to the
people of the state by his home
people. The following meiaorial
was adopted:
“To the People of the State of
Mississippi:
“Feeling that the people of onr
state are searching fur those men
who can render, them the best
service as public officials and feel*
ing that it is our duty to ourselves
and to the State of Mississippi to
give them our estimate of George

for State Revenue Agent, we can
