LOGICAL HOME OF NEW NORMAL SCHOOL
State Board of Education on Trip of Inspection Stops
First at Alliance, the Only Centrally Located
Town Applying for the School.
Lust Monday, the duy selected
by the State Board of Education
to begin their trip of inspection
of proposed sites for the new
state normal school, chanced to
be one of the worst of the season
in this part of Nebraska. Forty
three, the train on which they
came, was somewhat late but ar
rived in time for thera to viow
before dark the four eighty-acre
tracts, the choice of which is
offered to the state as a site for
the normal school. Dinner was
served at Hotel Alliance at 0:30
p.m. All members of the board
were here, as follows: Hon. II.
M. Childs, York, president of
the board; Dr. BartL. Shellhorn,
Peru, vice pros.; Rev. Luther P.
Ludden, Lincoln, sec; Hon. L.
G. Brian, Lincoln, treas.; Prof.
E. C. Bishop, Lincoln, state
supt.; Hon. N. P. McDonald,
Kearney, and Hon. J. J. Tooley,
Anselmo, members. They were
accompanied by Prof. A. O.
Thomas, president of the Kear
ney State Normal school. Others
from abroad were in attendance,
as follows: Senator L. L. Ray
mond, Scottsbluff; G. E. Mark,
editor of Mitchell Index; Prof.
W. R. Tate, supt. of city schools,
Sidney; Mr. Cross, Mitchell, a
Scotts Bluff county teacher; J.
L. Johnson and Mark Spanogle,
Bridgeport; Keith L
Hemingford; Miss Edith Morri
son, county supt. of Cheyenne
The comfort of the visitors
was properly looked after by the
entertainment committee, com
posed of the following members:
P. W. Harris, mayor; Ira E.
Tash, pres. of Commercial Club;
D. W. Hayes, supt. of city
schools; S. K. Warrick, F. E.
Reddish, W. W. Norton, Geo. L.
Griggs and C. A. Newberry.
The banquet committee, con
sisting of E. C. McCluer, Dr. F.
M. Knight and R. J. Lawrence,
had ordered the following menu,
which was served in epicurean
style, after invocation by Rev.
John L. Vallow, pastor of Alii-'

furnished by the Alliance High
School orchestra, under direction
of Prof. G. H. Williams, added
much to the enjoyment of the
dinner hour, and that it was
highly appreciated was shown
by repeated applause from the
assembled guests. And yet the
orchestra was not at its best,
their work being made difficult
by the absence of several mem
bers. After dinner came the most
important part of the day's pro
ceedings, the presentation of Al
liance's claims for the location
of the now state normal school;
nd if ever a clear enso of merit
jvas made out before a locating
committee, it certainly was on
this occasion. Right hero wo
lavish to remark that, while com
peting towns may rely upon
j 'playing a trump card at the
psychological moment," Alliance
depends wholly upon the fact
that it is the only logical location
for this school, and relying on
this fact we are as confident of
securing it as it is possible to be
hf anything that is not absolutely
ettled.N 0111013 may, if they
will, try wire pulling to secure
the location of the school on the
edge of the territory to be serv
ed, but we have too good an

a moment that they will be in
fluenced in their decision by any
thing of the kind. In regard to
wire-pulling and political schem
ing it is a notorious fact that
Alliance is sadly deficient; but in
this instance it is not needed.
We are relying upon the fact
that a state normal school at
Alliance can serve the people of
the patronizing territory to bet
ter advantage than it could at
any other place in the district;
and pending upon this fact,
without any expression of pref-
Pierceyerence yet from any member of
the board, we are sure that an
unbiased decision from them will
unanimously give Alliance the
We cannot give the speeches
in full, or even a synopsis of
them in this issue of The Herald,
but will say that they were all
excellent. First on the after
dinner program was a timely and
well-received introductory ad
dress by President Tash of the
Commercial c 1 u)j ; following
which R. M. Hampton spoke on
the subject, "Western Nebraska,
Its Future Development." Mr.
Hampton knows Nebraska west
one hundredth meridian
"from A to Z," and his address
showed that he knew just what
he was talking about.
While this city bases its claims
to the new school upon its be
ing by far the best location, a
very important matter was pre
sented by Father W. L. McNa
mara in an able address on "Al
liance, Its "Moral and Religious
A general impression prevails,
properly, we think, that an opin
ion from a disinterested party
has more weight than one from
interested persons. In his ad
dress on "Tributary Territory,"
Senator L. L. Raymond of Scotts
bluff spoke as one who is not in
terested in Alliance, except in a
general way as he is interested
in the prosperity, of all Nebraska
cities, but made a strong plea
for the location of the school
where it will be accessible to the
most densely populated portion
of the territory to be served by
it, namely Scotts Bluff and Mor
rill counties. Following the
Senator's address, no little en
thusiasm was created by Chair
man Tash reading a telegram,
just received from the North
Platto Valley Water Users' as
sociation in session at Scottsbluff
that day, and representing, if
wo remember correctly, 1,200
families, requesting that the
normal school bo located at Al
liance. Supt. D. W. Hayes presented
in "Educational Data" an array
of facts that added strength, if
such a thing were possible, to
the arguments already prosontcd.
Owing to some throat troublo,
which is unusual for him, Mr.
Hayes did not speak with his ac
customed clearance and volume
of voice, but ho spoko with de
liberation, his data were pre
sented in logical order, and wo
think most, if not all, in the largo
room hoard him.
Prof. W. R. Pate, superintend
dent of the Sidney city schools,
was present as a guest. His
name was not on the program,
but he was requested to say
something, which ho did to tho
delight of his listeners. Every
speech of the evening was re
plete with unanswerable argu
ments for the location of the
state normal school at Alliance,
and Mr. Pate's impromptu ad
dross was the clincher.
After sufficient arguments had
been presented, and more than
sufficient, it seems to us, the
members of the state board wore
requested to make some remarks,
each responding in a happy vein,
but refraining, of course, from
giving any expression of pref
erence as yet. President Thomas
of tho Kearney State Normal
was also requested to favor' the
assemblage with a speech, which
he did, much to tho gratification
of all present. His kindly spirit
and his deep interest in the cause
of education in this part of tho
state were especially appreciated
by Alliance citizens and other
western Nebraska people who
Installation of Officers

Public installation of the newly

Knight Dr. Copsey, on retiring to be
succeeded by Dr. Weber, was present,

official that he hardly felt able to ex

Knights. Dr. Weber, in a few well
chosen words, thanked the council for
the honor conferred on him and hoped
to merit it in his official acts. W. J.
Poole was succeeded as deputy grand
knight by W. J. Hamilton, who by the
way is a fourth degreo member of
order- Other officers were also

elected to their old positions.
