New School Building Needed.
North Platte taxpayers might as
well make up their minds now as later
to vote bonds for another school build
ing. With thirteen hundred children
of school age in the city, and tho
number increasing at such a rate as to
preclude any suggestion of race suicide,
tho present accommodations are inade
quate to accomodate all. Yesterday it
was necessary to transfer the First
ward eighth grade from the central
building to the west end building,
where theywill be accommodated by a
division of the large room. This will
somewhat relieve the congested con
dition at the central building, but be
fore the beginning of another school
year a new building must bo provided.
This building will be erected on tho
block in the cast end rqecntly pur
chased by the board, and will neces
sarily need be as large, if not larger,
than the Washington and Lincoln
buildings erected in 1911.
Star Route to be Abandoned.
Effective yesterday the star route
from this city that has for so many

tween Myrtle nnd Gandy, and the

ried over the railroad that now runs
within long firing distance of that
Effective one month from yesterday,
or on October 16th, the mail between
North Platte and Myrtle will be dis
continued and the Myrtlo people will Bo
served by a route that will reach them
from Arnold, a town on the new road
east of Gandy.
Little by little North Platte loses

Move for Permanent Chautauqua Site.
The committee of ten citizens ap
pointed to consider the proposition snb
mitted by Isaac Selby in which he
offered to sell about twelve acres of
land south of the city as a permanent
site for a Chautauqua ground and
athletic field for tho sum of four thou
sand dollars, held a meeting at the
public library Friday evening and dis
cussed the proposition fully but
took no definite action. The
plan proposed at this meeting was to
incorporate an association, sell one
hundred shares of stock at $100 per
share, of 200 shares at $50, and with
the proceeds purchase tho land, erect a
permanent building suitable for Chau
tauqua sessions and similar gatherings,
exca'vate a lake, plant trees ond make
other improvements that would in the
end meet the demands for a park as
well as Chautauqua grounds and athlet
It strikes The Tribune that the prop
osition as thus outlined is a good one,
and the publisher can be counted on as
one of ono hundred to furnish the nec
essary funds. The Chautauqua has
come to stay, and the sooner permanent
grounds be secured and "the proper
building erected tho better. A well
equipped athletic field is also something
needed; the school boy of today is a
strenuous fellow, ho needs a proper
place at which to expend that pent-up
physical Jforce he can't do it by chop
ping wood, because we do not live in
wooded country. And then, too, wo
need a recreation park; we made a
great mistake twonty-five years ago by
not then providing one; let us now
correct that mistake by making the
There are 100 men in North Platte
who can offord to donate $100 each for
tho good tho Chautauqua brings, tho
benofit the boy3 would derive from a
woll equipped athletic field and the
pleasure a park would bring to tho
people ten ortwenty years hence.
Boost the proposition along.
