Tho Stato University has an army of
professors who aro anxious to fill com
meucomout dates. However, few col
logo professors can deliver a real ora
tion. In fact, they usually use a man
uscript. Some of tho soniors who aro intend
ing to teach aro expecting to attend
tho Holdrogo Junior Normal School a
part of tho summer in order to meet
tho requirements of tho now law. If
our high school had ono moro teacher,
this normal instruction could bo given
to tho pupils in the junior and senior
yoars along with their regular work.
Tho stato school department had ruled
that only schools of twelve grades,
having not loss than four teauhors in
tho high school, will bo given credit
for this work.

Mr. Haskius is tho regular nominoo, it
is doubtful if ho will rocolvo tho sup

Populism being of too receut date,
and, although a successful farmer, his
ideas of tho needs of tho city will
hardly moot with tho approval of tho
majority or voters. Tho citizens' can
