I winto the Sun
ders Publishing Co., of Chicago, n week
or ro ago, to send you tho holiday
number of the Gazette u farm paper,
that has au atliclu in by Uovuinir
Khurluirtof Minnesota, in rng,ird to
the Country .Schools.
J liopo the School Law Revision Com
mission will lead what the (lovernor
has to say In regard to tho Ilural or
Central High School. Vou will notice
that they have over Mxty consolidated
schools that arc doing good work for
I hu community Hurt they ate located
Yon will notice that tho Governor
recommends State Aid for the rural
community school. The question
arises bow shall we get or raise -file
state aid for rural communities.
As I wrote you some tltnu ago I bo
llevo that the State Superintendent
should have all school funds that Is
paid in the different couutios from tho
railroads, interstate telegraph and tolo
phono linesv because all tho ponplo of
thu state support interstate or railroad
trttjllo. Tbo rural communities should
at least have their prorato sharo of the
school fund paid iu by interstate cor
porations. The rural communities havoHomuch
further to take their tralilc to support
Interstate or railroad trafllc.
1 will send you a clipping from ono
of our county papers, stating bow we
voted lion lis '2 years ago and have
paid Interest to tho amount of $33,375.
Tho amount of lfonils wo voted was
SiT.GOO.OO, making a total of 8l.'n7."i.00.
All tho taxable property iu the county
paid Its sharo of tittT bonds and inter
est." 1 notice that 'district No. 12 lias a
t-cliool levy of :i mills, it Is a rural dis
trict but tins a railroad through it. A
poison would suppose that the railroad
paid a good shaie of their school taxes.
Our district No. G.' has a levy 'for
school purposes of SIX per 8100. The
whole community" tfippdrts tho rail
road. I think It iftfrinjusticu f'"1 ti.e
other rural eotnmiihlty, etc.,- to flup
port) district No. P.!. with railroad tlixos
to I'uiifh'eir school with
i 1'iVe'fy child of school ago should
have au equal chauco foraii education.
Now if lMstrlot i'o. 0.1 help1 pay any
psrl. of M-liool district, No lti's School
Uixes.'it in an injustice U the child of
clNtiietNo ii." and every other rural
cDiiuuiiuity that suppcut'S tliti railroad.
Tho whulo community supports tho
railroad. Aud the district that has a
railroad thiough it should only get Its
prorato sharo for every child of school
age in the state. I think that If a
school district lias a levy of $;i,50 per
S100.00 and gets all of the railroad
school taxes from the railroad that
runs through it. It is just so much
greater of au injustice than the district
that lias III) cents per 100.00 because
tho wholo community outside and in
side of said district has to support tho
railroad in order for them to get tho
f.'J.CO per 8100. 00 School Levy for said
I think Governor Eberhart's article
on Rural School Communities is good
and should be read by all of tho
School Law Revision Commission.
