Junior Normal Bill Becomes a Law
Now that tho bill establishing Junior
Normal school has become a law and
one being located at McCook will wo
have the ambition to make it a success
Tho law establishing these schools in
tho western part of tho stato is under
stood to bo somewhat experimental A
good many of tho educators in tho west
ern part of tho state have felt that if
normal schools held during the summer
could be established a great many of
tho teachers would avail themsolvos of
tho opportunity to secure normal school
In tho opinion of the writer it is going
to depend greatly on the citizens resid
ing where these schools aro locatod
whether they will be permanent and
grow in benefits or whether thoy will
die at birth as has been tho caso with a
number of enterprises in our territory
It does seem as though wo should keep
this new offspring alive long enough to
seo how it looks May bo if wo nurse it
through the colic croup whooping
cough and other diseases of iufancy
after a while we may like it and bo glad
that wo gavo it the necessary parental
For this Junior Normal to bo success
ful it will be necessary to advertiso it
thoroughly lotting all tho teachers- and
everyone else interested in this branch
of education know that the law is
passed and that this school will bo hold
hero this summer This advertisement
should be so persistontly placed before
the public that everyone will hear of it
talk of it and3a largo number attend
This will make it a success
On tho part of tho people in McCook
it will be necessary to make some pro
vision for taking care of and making it
comfortable and to some extent enter
tain those in attendance Our hotol and
boarding house accommodations aro not
sufficient to take care of nearly so many
people as should attend this school
We are told by members of the library
board that a good many books of refer
ence and books on educational lines are
not in our library and the pride that the
McCook citizens take in the library will
make it almost necessary that these
books be procured and the library kept
open all day and evening during tho
time the school is in sevjO
The management of the school will be
under the state educational department
and doubtless there will be a number of
good lectures during the session and our
citizens will have the privilege of hear
ing them and the advantage will be
partially on our side
Some money has been subscribed for
assisting a summer school and this
added to what should be raised by some
means tho committee on normal
schools may devise should bo placed in
the hands of some person to bo used in
advertising this school and in making
the first session a success If a large
attendance can be secured and interest
is taKen in tno scnool by our citizens
and the first term can be made success
ful we shall have taken the first step
toward securing a state normal school
