(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 2fl.-(Spcclal.)-Tho
Schoolmasters' Club of Nebraska Is
not in politics, if lamp post interviews
with "prominent members" of tho club
living In Lincoln as set forth In a Lin
coln paper Is to bo believed, but the
whole agitation over tho removal ot Dr.
Thomas from the Kearney normal Is due
to the "agitation of certain Omaha
papers, who aro prone to look upon the
Schoolmasters' club as a sort ot Lincoln
In an endeavor to show that the
Schoolmasters' olub Is not a Lincoln or
ganization and that It Is not In politics
Lincoln members ot the club aro quoted
as snylng that because so many of the
club live In Lincoln is becauso of the
geographical situation and the state
How They Are Located.
Tho records of tho Schoolmasters' club
show that ot the 100 members, thirty-five
live. In the capital city and its suburbs.
The1 other members aro scattered over
the state, and so scattered that were It
tho days of the railroads In politics and
the old convention system it would look
suspiciously suspicious.
Strangely, the Schoolmasters' club has
represnntatlves lii all ot the thickly set
tled counties and most ot tho larger
towns. They aro so situated that if the
club wanted to cut a figure In politics
It could do so very successfully because
of the geographical location of Its mem
bership. Is thcro any political organiza
tion of tho state or any politician who
would not be In his political glory If he
had a working representative In tho fol
lowing counties, which havo nil tho way
from one to four representatives of the
Schoolmasters' club:
Adams, Box Butte, BUtlcr. Buffalo.
Burt, Cass, Colfnx, Clay, Custer, Dodge,
Douglas. Dawes, plxonOage, Hall, Ham-
ills, Nemaha; Otoo, Platte, Phelps; Reo"
Willow, Richardson, Saunders, Seward,
Saline, Stanton, Washington, Wayne,
York and with headquarters in Lancas
ter county with a working force ot thirty-
five members.
Effects on Primary,
Jn 1908, the first year that state of
ficers were nominated at a primary, tho
Schoolmasters' club was represented by
four out of the five candidates for state
superintendent. Ode republican outsldo
of the club had the sand to buck up
agalhst .tho stone wall and has not been
heard from slnoe. B. C. Bishop, a mem
ber .of Uie club, 'landed the republican
nomination and wan elected. In his se
lection of a deputy he picked a member
of the club, or at least his name now
appears on the roster.
In '1910, of the four candidates, Frank
8. Perduo was the only man who bucked
against the line and he, too, went down
to defeat. This was the year that ths
club 'got behind J. W. Crabtreo after he
had been deposed by the normal sohool
board, and on a "sob" platform he was
elected and a member ot the School
masters' olub was kept as a deputy.
In 1012 it was a direct fight between
members of the Schoolmasters' club and
the outsiders on the republican side, J. EX
Dclxell represented the club with G. W.
Whltehorn opposing him. On the demo
pratlq tlckot E. E. Monroe tried conclu
sions with two members of the club, R. V.
Clark and John Speedle. In each case the
anti-club candidate was badly distanced,
but somehow the successful candidate
did not remember his .unsuccessful com
petitor In the primary when he was
elected, and appoint him to a good office
as had been done In former years. But
he was not a member ot the Schoolmas
ters' club, and that might be the reason.
Why ft la Limited.
A Lincoln member ot the club says that
one reason why the club is limited to 100
members. Is because If It was not so It
would be too much like the Stats Teach
ers' association. In other words, a club
of 100 members can be more easily
handled than one with an unlimited
number and the-little club of the select
could manipulate matters as they wanted
It anyhow. To show how successfully
the club has worked In the teachers' or
ganization, every president of that or
ganization elected In the past halt a
dozen yeaYs1 Is a memebr of the School
masters' club, and still the club Is not In

This is a profound question on

that no mind, masculine or

that is not thoroughly up with

It Implies being conversant

too numerous to mention.
To these must be added one
