Everywhere NEWS AND VIEWS From The—— STATE CAPITAL By F. R. Birdsall State Superintendent Bond an nounces that the attendance upon the summer normals is proving most grat-1 Hying. Nearly 5,000 Mississippi teach ers are attending these normals, and | educators state that never before In the history of Mississippi has there , been such a commendable effort on the part of teachers to Improve them selves professionally. At the recent meeting of the stats democratic executive committee in Jackson, for the first time in the his tory of Mississippi a woman sat with that body. Mrs. Howard Williams, of Hattiesburg, having been chosen to succeed M. U. Mounger, resigned. A resolution was adopted that none but white democrats who had voted the presidential ticket in 1920 should be allowed to participate In the primaries. No location for the city auditorium, for which 190,000 in bonds were voted recently by the electors of Jackson, has been agreed upon. The board of supervisors of Hinds county has been asked to appropriate $50,000 to go into this auditorium, and provide an armory which is authorized under the law, and until this matter is settled, the loca tion of the auditorium site will be de ferred. Visitors state that there is more ac tivity being taken in the senatorial pri maries than heretofore, and the apathy as the primary date approaches grows less and less. The senatorial primary will take place on August 14, at the same time primaries for congressman, judges and chancellors will be held, as well as that for a supreme court Judge in the southern district of the state. Flag staffs for the old and new capl tol grounds will soon be erected, and "‘Old Glory” will kiss the breezes of Mississippi from the seat of govern ment again. It was found that the lo cation of flag staffs on the dome of the old and new capitols were dangerously inaccessible, and that the swaying of such flag staffs with large flags dur ing heavy winds loosened the roofs of the buildings and caused them to leak. When the flag poles are erected the flags will be hoisted'and lowered both morning and afternoon. It Is reported that the agricultural high schools, which were given au thority by the legislature to become junior colleges, are organizing for the coming session. The agricultural high school at Raymond, which is the geo graphical center of the capital county of Mississippi, and said to be one of the foremost in tile country, is laying plans for successful work. These Ju nior schools become public colleges for boys and girls which they may attend without cost of tuition for two years, and the work done by these junior high schools will be accepted by all of the state colleges and the' state university in Mississippi. The reports at the state highway commission department are to the ef fect that the constitutional amend ment giving the state highway com mission control over trunk highways so that Mississippi may participate In federal appropriations for road build ing, continue to grow in popularity. It is important, however, for the men and women, when they come to vote on constitutional amendments at the No vember elections, not to ignore such amendments, but if they favor them to put a cross opposite them. Any voter at that election who fails to vote on a constitutional amendment effectively votes against it as if she or he voted in the negative. -- The supreme court will recess for fts summer vacation on July 10. Un less it hands down an opinion in the fire insurance cases brought by State Revenue Agent Stokes V. Robertson, wherein Chancellor Strieker penalized 62 companies some $8,000,000, which was argued sometime ago, being on ap peal, no decision can be expected be fore October, when the court recon venes. Lawyers state that the chan cellor followed the law and the testi mony and Imposed nominal penalties. It is conceded, however, that the only penalty collectable are those impound ed by the revenue agent, and are now in the hands of the receiver. This amounts to something less than sl, 000,000.

MISSISSIPPI MISSISSIPPI HAPPENINGS The poll tax figures for the year show that the city of Jackson Is richer by $5,778 from this source than in 1921, the increase being due, of course, to the fact that enfranchised women have taken the first step to ward voting.
