l1T TFTT? SPA if VOL. XIX tio. 16. THE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL PROPOSITION The voters of Harding county will have before them in the near future the question of set tling the location for the Hard ing County High School, and while the matter was permanent ly settled by the legislature, the supreme court thru a decision a few weeks ago decided the Coun ty High School Debentures were illegal and this leaves the matter as to a permanant location doubt ful. hence a petition was circulat ed last Monday a week ago and over 500 names were secured on that date asking the, County Commissioners to call an elec tion and settle the matter so far as Roy was concerned. A pe titon was circulated by the peo ple of Mills and community ask ing for an election to vote on Mills also as to location for a 0unty High School. The petition from Roy was filed a number of days before the pe tition from Mills was filed and will have to be acted upon by the commissioners first and the law says plainly that one place f n be voted upon at one time. In as much as the County High School was given to Roy by the legislature in the county bill and Roy being the largest town in the county and having by far the largest school enroll ment and the district paying one fourth of the taxes of the whole county it appears to us that the school should rightful ly be located at Roy and we be lieve the people of the county will by their vote locate it where it rightfully belongs in the coun ty metropolis. While the S. A. has felt II the time that the legislature had no right to name the location of the permanant county seat and high school, yet we feel if one part of the bill fe null ans void and illegal then the actions of the same bill are illegal. However if it Is illegal to have the Legislature name the location of the County High School, then Roy is perfectly will ing to go before the people and let them decide where they want it located for we do not want any thing that does not rightfully belong to the town. The Roy school being more centrally located than any other school in the county has a num ber of advantages over the other schools as for the location of the County High School. First of all is the large enrollment of nearly 400 students which nat urally requires a high school and it will be absolutely neces sary for a high school at this place whether it be a county high school or not. With pro bably 50 or 60 pupils ready for school work next year dis tributed between the four years of high school work one can readily see that a high school will be an absolute necessity and as we are under the County Unit System the whole county tayinf for tlr schools naturally the county will have to pay pro portionately for this high school. However, even at this, Roy's as sessment of nearly $2.000,000 will probably more than pay for ( the school but the taxes goes into one fund and is likewise drs-1 WE SELL Wire, Nails and Stock Salt Garden and Field Seeds Furnituré and Caskets A Full Line of General Merchan dise and Meats ROY TRADING COMPANY A Profitable Place to Trade. , "With Malice LEGION AUXILIARY TO HOLD SERVICES ON MO THERS' DAY Mothers' day, which falls this year on Sunday, May 14, will be observed nationally as well as locally by every one of the 3.500 units of the .American Legion auxiliary.

The national effort at obser vance will be symbolized by an impressive ceremony over the body of the Unknown Soldier, in the national cemetery at Arl ington, Va. Tribute will be paid to the unknown mothers of this soldier, who was buried with distinctive honors last Armis tic day. Ceremonies will be held over the graves of war dead in other parts of the country. It is planned to 1 have legion and auxiliary members unite in community church services, to be held in towns on the after noon of Mother's day. Auxiliary units will arrange concerts in hospitals in which there are vet erans of the late war and pro grams of entertainment also will bs given in oiphan asylums in which there are children of men of the World war. - The Auxiliary also will pro mote the observance of establish ed features of the day, such as phurch attendance, in the morn ing, preaching of approprate ser mons and the urging of every one to write or wire his mother on that day or send her flowers. Mother's day was organized by Miss Anna j Jarvis, of Phila delphia. The American Legion auxiliary is composed of the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of Legion men. Jimmie Turner, brother-in-law ,of Neis Benson was in town a few davs the first of the week fshowing the fine work done by the; Dawson Vulcanizing firm. iWe have to admit that it is fine work and the new firm will no doubt receive a good business from this town. tributed, it naturally goes back to the county school fund. There is no doubt in our mind? but Mills, Solano and Mosquero should have high school work and they will probably have two years work this year and a? soon as their enrollment war rents it their high school work should be increased, but with their present enrollment it would be almost impossible to give these places a complete four year course. The law requires at least one high school teacher for each year taught and it is easy to see that it would be a waste of money to have three or four high shool teachers for 6 to 10 pupils. . The County Commissioners will probably act on the petition? at their June meeting and ther the matter will be left up to the people of the county to decide. Roy is only asking for what she feels rightfully belongs to her and we believe the voters' of the county will settle the matter permananty for the county high school and locate same at Roy.

HARDING COUNTY FIFTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CON VENTION HELD AT MILLS LAST SUNDAY The morning was fine and warm and it brought people from Solano, Roy and also people from our various Sunday Schools scat tered over the country together at an early hour some in time for Sunday School which was held at 10 o'clock. The convention was opened by the president, b. D. Wade, of Roy, reading the Shepherd's Psalm in á very impressive man ner which was followed by pray er by Rev. Wellingham of Roy. Rev. Fletcher of Mills gave welcome address in a few well chosen words. Rev. Welling ham delivered the convention sermon, taking for his text "Bring up a Child in the way it should go and when it is old it will not depart therefrom." It was one of the best sermons which we have heard for years. Then came dinner one of those basket dinners and it was sumptuous indeed. If you think we are prevaricating on the subject just ask Mr. Wade. He was a long time betting to the table but at last he overcome his bashfulness and "waded" in. We encouraged him by giving him a fair sizeDlate and saw that it was kept full, but at the same time warning him on the dangers of too much rich food. We readily saw that our breath was wasted when he said, "The more I eat the better I feel." Everyone present seemed to en joy themselves and added to the mirth of the moment. After a song and prayer came the business session during whi ch it was decided to hold the next convention at Solano on thj fifth Sunday in July. P. L. Gunn.-of Roy, was elected to fi 1 the unexpired term Jas that of vice president T. S. H o 1 1 a n d, formerly of Mosquero- but who has moved away-and left that office vacant. We feel assured that Mr. Gunn will be a valua able member to the convention because he boosts for Sunday Schools every day in the week anion Sunday too. A committee was appointed to prepare the program and have same published in the paper three weeks before time for thj next convention . . So watch for it and make your arrangement;: to be there. : The. Sunshine Class of tin Mills Sunday Schoel, which h composed of little girls in the third and fourth grades at school, sang a song, "We are the Rainy Day Brigade," and with their umbrellas they showed us how we could depend on them being at Sunday School every Sunday morning. Mrs. Geo. Lucas, of theLib erty Sunday School, gave a react ing on "Conscience'' which war. enjoyed by all present and which vealed dasp thinking on the part of tha writer. ; . After a solo by Pearl Newman of Solano, Rev. Fletcher talked on. "A childs life from 6 to years of age." W. Fred Ogder read a paper on the "History anc Progress of the Sunday Cchooi Work . ' He took us back many years and produced facts that people had met together for the purpose of studying God's word many years before Robert Rake? began to teach his little bond of poor street boys. in England. A tenor and soprano duet was given by Miss Mable Smith and Mr. Wade which was well ren dered and the audience showed their appreciation by much ap plause. o - A quartett from the Roy Methodist Sunday School sang beautif uly and farther impressed upon our minds that they have some good singers -at Roy as well as elsewhere. When we say that Prof. Hen dricks, of Roy, gave a splendid talk on "What kind of soil are we furnishing for our young people," : we are expressing it mildly, and we sincerely wish we had time to go into details ond tell all about it, but as we have not, and our report is growing long we must content ourselves with these few remarks. The convention was dismissed about four o'clock and all depart ed for their numerous homes de METHODIST LADIES HOME MISSIONERY ENTERTAIN The Methodist Ladies Home Missionary Society met at the home of Mrs. C.
