Distribution of School Fund.
Under the session laws of
1912 for the distribution of
school funds to each school
district. County Superin
tendent Gilbert E. Greer is
having some little trouble to
arrange so as to use the funds
provided, in the districts
where greatl' needed and not
allow any districts more than
realty needed for use to carry
on the schools in excellent
manner for the required
term. The law provides that
not less than $1000 per year
be apportioned to each dis
trict; this sum is not suffici
ent for the larger districts and
more than enough for the
smaller ones. But Mr. Greer
has succeeded in formulating
a plan of distribution which
he believes provides for all
i he necessities of each dis
trict and also comes witliin
the present law.
In other connties' much
more difficulty is being ex
perienced in th'e matter of the
distribution of funds for the
maintainance of the schools
which are so widely different
in their needs. It is believed
that the nex1- legislature will
greatly improve the present
laws relative to distribution
of funds and thus relieve the
schools in this particular.
Where, oh where are
the mathematicians and arith
meticians? Where oh where
are they? In December last
the Herald-News published
a "Square" with the words,
"Boots and Shoes," in small
er squares across the top and
down the right side., first, of
the big square. A. & B.
Schuster Co. offered a prize
of the "pick of a pair of shoes
by the person who first an
swered the problem correctly,
or for the person most nearly
correct in answer to the pro
blem." And not a single an
swer submitted. It was a
bona fide proposition; the
shoes were therefor the-person
with "gizzard enough to come
through on any answer,"
whether close to correct or
awa' off and not a one
tackled it. Gee! either no
body believed it to be a bona
fide proposition or nobody
needed a pair of shoes. The
answer to that question of
"Boots and Shoes" is. 272.
