It is whether or not school affairs are to be made the plaything of class politics. On isues affecting the schools, Walter J. Santmyer, who has served as school director for the past year, has an unimpeachable record. He has been a tireless worker. He brought ot the school board a year ago the training of a capable engineer. He is a doer, not a mew spoter. Not a single act. in his term of office, has been,'or could lx\ assailed. He has been progressive, thoro, and American. Yet the Triple Alliance seeks his defeat. Why? For the only reason that his nomination has not been dic tated by it—for the only reason that he would continue to be independent in his voting of ANY class. The same is true of George H. Walter. As a resi dent of this state for more than a score of years, the people have had a mighty good opportunity to judge the man. And no one can say that his thoughts or his opinions are domniated by any clique, faction, party, or class. He, too, is thoroly independent. And that is why the Triple Alliance is opposing him. Santmyer and Walker have the ability and the good will to treat the affairs of the Rchool district squarely and progressively. There is no question about their qualifications. And the issue tomorrow is whether they should be elected to represent all of the people, or whether the Triple Alliance should succeed in a reign of turmoil, class bitterness, and upheaval even in the educational work of this city. You must answer with your votes.
