DISTRICT HO. 30.
District No. 80 is unique in several respects.
It is a valley district on the south side , five
miles long , reaching to Hitchcock county on
the west and to the bluffs , south. It has no
school house but a little school in contrast to
the si/e of the district. The studies range
from the little ones just beginning to spcl !
out the mysteries of book lore , to one fitting
for the university and this is as it should be.
It is the country boys and girls trained to la
bor and to wait , that are to be in the future ,
as in the past , the leaders of thought , and
these broad plains with their wide stretches
of earth and sky should foster broad minded
and variously cultured men and women. Yet
here as elsewhere in country district , country
town or city , is a battle to be fought with bar
barism a barbarism not always repulsive but
often wearing a specious and cojncly exterior.
Whenever material success is sought as an
end of living rather than as a help to better
things , there is a degrading element of sav
agery at work.And what are the better
things ? RUSTICUS.
