VOL. XIX tio. 16.
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

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. Assistance wm" be
given the women's organization
by the 11,000 posts of the Amer
ican Legion.
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.

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

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.

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.

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

Sunday morning.
Mrs. Geo. Lucas, of theLib
erty Sunday School, gave a react

vealed dasp thinking on the

. 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

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
