An excellent program was

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC
The Safford Fire Department
wishes to call attention to the
fact that citizens not members
of the department have been
riding the truck and also trying
to assist the firemen at fires
This practice must be discon
tinued as it not only hinders the
firemen in their work but makes
it more dangerous for both
City Ordinance No 64 makes
it unlawful for anyone to inter
fer with firemen or fire apparatus
and it is hoped that this law will
be observed in the future
Should the department need
more men to efficiently handle a
fire the fire department chief
will call upon those who are will
ing and best able to render as
sistance Let us all help the
department to become more ef
ficient

County School Superintendent
S C Heywood returned home
Monday from Phoenix where he
went to meet with the commit
tee which was anpointed bv trie
State Board of Education o
work out a uniform accounting
system for schools
AH reports such as teachers
annual reports and trustees an
nual reports etc will be Jn
keeping with the general uni
form accounting svatmri Plane
for such records will he knr in
stock instead of the old system
mat nas existed in the state
which has been extravagant and
wasteful Records will coat In
the aggregate over the state very
much less
The account no- sMfom ifoJiif
will focus school superintendents
in a way mat means something
to the taxpayers of the state
The expenses of any school dist
rict can be based on the overage
daily attendance as to cost ad
ministration operation or mafn
tarice or school plants It can
be easily determined by compar
ison as to spending exessive pro
portions accounting fnr oHhm
administration or instruction etc
It is PYnprtnrl thof nn
card system will be used for keep
ing records of text books Some
disposition of excessive number
Of text books or riisrarridt nrW
option will be provided for this
only to mmemize the text book
expense
The Office of the nrmnfv eohnnl
superintendent of Graham county
is naving listed all text booka of
currant tnfn o
can be made from districts instead
of using books directly from the
scaie ana increasing text books
tOSt It is hODed that rhi rah
ers trustees and patrons of the
schools will help also to reduce
cose or text books by cooperating
fntrainincr children m nnprlv in
the care of text books in sur
veys made by the county school
superintendentof several districts
of Graham county on the life
of text books it has been found
that wastefulness of textbooks is
largely by families Some fami
lies where there are seven 1
children in school in different
grades the average life of text
books was not to xeed two
years while children of other
lamilies could use books four or
five vears thev wnnlri ntin ho
good condition
Habits of wastefulness on iiho
part of the children should be
eliminated as much as possiable
and this Will require cooperation
on the part of all concerned
