A Plea to Hothors. -
How many mothers are satisfied to have
their daughters obliged to walk to the ex
treme corner of town and then mount three
flights of stairs to get to their school room,
and thus sacrifice their health for an educa
tion? Not many. Now the most of them
have the power to prevent it by coming out
and voting for a change. There are dozens
of girls in our town who wish and need to
get an education to earn a living, who have
had to give up school on account, of the
location of tlie high school rooms, to say
nothing of those who have given out entirely
In the senior class this year. I think If a
canvass was made, one would not find more
than two or three out of ten strong women
who have taken a four years' course In our
high school. It is not so In other towns,
where the rooms are below the tree tops.
We have got to have more school room.
Why not have a high school? The present
rooms can be so utilized by other grades
that one pupil need not go more than one
year at a time, while one in the high school
has four years in succession.
Those who do not think it hurts the girls,
visit the school occasionally and note how
long It takes you to get sufficient breath to
enter the room after mounting the stairs.
Every woman who owns any city property
In her own naaie, individually or in part
nership, is a tax payer and therefore a voter.
Coma out and vote conscientiously for the
girls even If you haven't any of your own.
