One of the speakers said that Lnrdsburg was able to have a high school withou county support and that the coffers o the local board were full and running over with gold. According to that argument the Lordsburg district must spend Its own funds in supporting a high school In the southern end or 3rant county, In a district 50 by 90 miles In extent, thai outsidedlstrlcts, If they send their students here will be forced to pay tuition.
