Btruck a blow for road rights Saturday
afternoon when he fined Mart Ames
S5 and costs upon a plea of guilty of
obstructing the highway. The fine
was suspended upon good behavior
and the young farm hand paid up the
costs, which amounted to $17.40.
Ames works on a farm about four
miles south of Perrysburg. Tho case
arose through an affidavit sworn to by
Arthur Prieur, of Bowling Green.
The latter was returning from Toledo
in his automobile some days ago
when he came up behind Ames. The
latter refused to pull his team over to
permit Prieur to pass and Prieur as
serted, frustrated all attempts on his
part to do so, the result being that he
turned back and went arouna anoth

township and some things have made
more than a passing impression upon
Chief among these things is the
general lack of purpose to make the
surroundings cheerful and comforta
ble for pupils. Tho school grounds
show that few efforts have been madd
to make them attractive 'with trees,
schrubbery, or llower beds; the tno3t
of the yards need grading bo that the
surplus water would run away from
the building, while the necesBacy out
buildings have little to inspire pupils
to keep them in a sanitary condition.
Within the buildings there is a
great chance for bright and cheerful
surrounding. The paint on the walls
was selected rather with the idea of
not showing the accumulations of
soot from the soft-coal burners, than
with the idea of making an attractive
and restlul room for students, who
must have good light. Window
shades in general add to the gloomy
inside appearance. The .efforts of
teachers, by means of pictures, clean
curtains, well-kept desks and floors,
to drive away the -gloom has served,
by contrast, to make more noticeable
the forbidding walls and grounds.
Why should not the school build
ings and yards be the very center of
a district's best efforts to bring sun
shine and beamy iuto the lives of the
children who must spend so many of
their best and impressionable days
within their influence? From a pure
ly educational standpoint every child
would be the gainer and would carry
into his home a more genial, uplifting
and helpful spirit.
In the cities, in the vjllages, and in
some of the country districts the
school buildings by request of par
ents are being made the social centers
of community life; they are being
used as 'places where children with
their parents gather week by week
for wholesome amusement, for athlet
ic contests, for musicals, for debates,
for exhibitions of educational work,
for inspirational talks and lectures.
The result of these gatherings has
been so beneficial that the movement
is rapidly growing. Wl at a" field for
work in Perrysburg's district schools!

The number of licenses for 1912

If tho estimate of the registrar
nroves correct, it will mean that the
auto department will prove a revenue
getter for the state to .the extent of
over 300,000, less the cost of admin

T BUILD STATION.
Public utilities commission ordered
the Ohio Electric Railway to erect a
Btation at Maumee. Investigation
showed that there was enough passen-
Lgersancf freightMaken on and dis
charged there to watrant the order.
Much credit for this order should
be given by the people of Maumee to
Editor Pomeroy of the Advance-Era
for his continued efforts to secure the
station which was greatly needed, by
tho people of our neighboring town.
Tho wot and cold weather of the
past fall and winter has greatly fav
ored the abatement of the chinch bug
plague in Ohio, and if farmers gener
ally will now proceed to destroy the
remnant of bugs which hayo survived
the winter, wo can reasonably hope to
get through the coming summer with
less damage than occurred last year.
Owing to the lateness of tho spring,
the bugs will not commence to fly
freely before the last ten days of April
and if farmers generally will practice
concerted burning over the hibernat
ing retreats of tho insects during the
coming two weeks, many of the sur
viving insects will be destroyed. Burn
over roadside border, along old fence
rows, over bramble thickets, along the
borders of woods and over grassy
borders around fields and gardens
in short burn every thing in the shape
of grassy ground-cover, that will burn.
Persuade your neighbors to do like
wise or your worn, no matter how
thoroughly performed, will afford
only partial relief and that only for
the early part of the season.
If you haye not read circular 115
of the Experiment Station on the
Chinch Bug, send for it at once.

this wide field of opportunity?
Let it be understood that the chief
thing in the attainment of a model
district school is a definite and fixed
plan. This would require but little
more expenditure than is regularly
used for school maintenance. The
first movement should be the adop
tion of a plan ior each district, by
the township officials and by the par
ents of tho district. All improve
ments made thereafter should com
ply with the adopted plan. Who
will offer the first plan, or model for
the general and permanent improve
ment and beautifying of one of our
district schools? The writer suggests
that a pupil might do this, a teacher,
a director, a member of the township
board, or a dweller (man or woman)
of the district.

To the young men here tonight I
would say. When you get a job pitch
into your work and pay no attention
to the clock or time. Think of noth
ing, talk of nothing but shop, and
when the boss comes around pay no
attention to him, but to your work,
and, my word for it, when you want
to leave for some other job the old
man won't let you go, but will likely
take you in as a partner.
Not a word about how ho discovered
the telephone, the electric bulb, the
phonograph, the multiplex wire sys
tem of telegraphy, motion pictures
'with or without talking parts, but
his advice to young men. Surely, in all
this thero ought to be some soundness

The first Boxwell examination of
the year will be held at the Bowling
Green Central school building, Satur
day, April 20. Diplomas will bo
granted to only eighth grade pupils
who pass a satisfactory examination.
Such diploma will admit the holder
to any high school in the state free of
tuition provided there is no first
grade high school in the township
where the holder, resides. However
it is anticipated that many pupils un
der the eighth grade will attend this
and the subsequent examination.
