They are Requested to Put a Stop to Squandering of School Funds. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction has issued the following to the County Supervisors : "I wish to call the attention of you and your county board of education to section 2555 of the school law of 1897. I find that the printer omitted a very important part of this section, as fol lows: 'No order given by a school committee of any district (township) for maps, charts, globes, or other school apparatus, shall be valid unless the same oe indorsed by the chairman of the board of commissioners (which now means chairman county board of education) and approved by the coun ty board of education.' I call upon you in the name of the children of your county to put a stop to the squandering of the school fund, if it has been in your county. Beware of vouchers that are presented to you for school supplies. "These words 'school supplies' on some of these vouchers I have seen simply mean $37.50 for a school chart. Now, can you expect for people to be willing to pay taxes to support public schools when the money is squandered in this way? If I lived in a county where I bad to pay taxes to be wasted in this way, when an election came to vote on school taxes, 1 would take the stump and canvass the county against schools, until we could find men that had sense enough to kuow bow to spend the money."
