The School Library Law
Mis9 Reed, county superintendent,
calls our attention to a very important
matter, namely, the school library law.
The following, republished from the
February number of the Nebraska
School Review, should be read by
every teacher and school district officer
in the county:
"A short time ago a questional wa9
mailed to the county superintendents
of the state asking for definite informa
tion relative to the operation of the
school library law. Answers have been
received from nearly all the counties
and, as a whole, the information given
show very gratifying results. In a few
counties a large number of the school
districts failed to set aside ten cents
per pupil for the purchase of library
books, but in nearly every case the
failure was a matter of neglect, and
compliance with the law is being in
sisted upon by the county superintend
ents of these counties.
Section 9, subdivision 11, school
laws, provides that before a school
district treasurer shall be allowed to
draw the state apportionment from the
county treasurer, he must present a
certificate from the county superin
tendent setting forth that such district
has had the legal number of months'
school, has made the census report
properly, and has made the proper fi
nancial report. Attorney General
Thompson holds that the county super
intendent has a right to require the
director to show in his report the
amount of money set apart each year
for the district library fund, and in case
the school district fails or refuses to
make this report, the school district
treasurer cannot draw the amount of
state apportionment from the county
treasurer. Acting upon this decision;
the December apportionment has been
withheld in a number of school dis
tricts until such time as the district
officers have met the requirements of
the library law. The county superin
tendents are to be commended for the
firm stand they have taken in dealing
with this question. The best results
will be secured only when they are in
hearty sympathy with the spirit and
purpose of the library law.
The data received indicate that iti
many of the school districts there is a
lack of proper records kept of the books
in the school library; also that there
should bo a better system for the charg
ing of books loaned to pupils. One of
the objections urged by school district
officers against the law is that the
books purchased for the library will
not be properly cared for, and every
county superintendent or teacher should
see that such an objection as applied
to his county or his school is entirely
North Platte Valley
Box Butte county has heretofore
been in the territory of the Northwest
ern Nebraska Teachers' association,
but this year is changed to the North
Platte Valley Teachers' association.
The following fr6m the state superin
tendent, under date of Feb. 7, relative
to the association meeting at Bridge
port, March 25 and G, will be of inter
est to teachers and school district offi
cers: To School Boards in the North Platto
Tlie teachers of the North Platto
Valley have banded themselves to
gether into the North Platto Vallov
Teachers' Association for the purpose
of inspiration and increase of profes
sional skill in their work. It is a
profit-shaiiug organization teachers
going back to their respective school
districts and sharing with their pupils
and patrons the good things they have
gained from their contact with others
interested, like themselves, in the ad
vancement of the educational interests
of the community in which they live,
and the state in general.
To attend a two days' session of
such an association means considerable
expense- Since the good is shared
with the school district the teacher
serves, it is a matter of justice to the
teacher that the school board give the
teacher leave of absence for at least
one day without loss of pay.
The dates for the association this
year are Friday and Saturday, March
25 and 26. If the teacher is willing to
attend the association at his or her ex
pense, it is an application of a good
business principle for tho school board
to give such permission without lo&s nf
salary. It will be a c.i60 of value le
ceived. The teachers will retu-n with
greater enthusiasm for tho work, with
a fund of new ideas, and with the abil
ity to render greater service to the
I, therefore, recommend that school
boards in the territory of the North
Platte Valley TeacherB' Association
give their teachers leave of absence on
full pay to attend the association, Fri
day, March 25, 1910.
Yours very truly.

THOUGHTS ON BUSINESS
WALDO PONDRAY WARREN
ANYTHING that will reduce the number of mistakes made
by employes is always gladly received by business men
who appreciate the extent to which "human frailty" (a
charitable synonym for carelessness) causes trouble, dissat
isfaction, and a curtailing of net profit.
In a large Jobbing house the other day I saw a clever
device that Is said to be effective. On the Inside cover of
the order binders, which accompany every order, there was a
sentence, printed In letters half an Inch high, as follows:
"Please see that there are no 'blunders' made while this
bf.ok Is In YOUR possession."
The obvious practical value of this caution appeals to
one Immediately. Certainly, if each person through whose
hands the book passed made no blunders there would be none
In the whole order, and If each order was filled without
blunders there would be none In the whole order-filling de
partment. "How does It work?" I asked.
"Oh, that's a fine thing," said the man. "When we first
put that on our order books there was an Immediate and note
worthy decrease In the number of blunders made. And the
percentage has remained lower than before. Of course, after
the men get uesd to that sign It doesn't make as much Inv
presslon as It did at first, but the effect Is still good."
