School Bonds Badly Needed.
Norfolk. Neb. . March 28. To thi
Voters of the School District of Nor
folk : There seems to be some mlsun
derstandlng iu the minds of some o ;
the Norfolk voters as to our purposi
iu asking for nn Issue of school bonds
just now. The statement has beet
made that our motive lu asking foi
these bonds Is to defeat the bonds foi
ti municipal lighting plant , should tin
latter be voted upon this spring.
It is only fair to the public to staU
that the board of education has no
now , nor have they had any intentloi
of mingling In the controversy eve :
the lighting of the city. We wish t <
make it clear to the public that tin
school bonds now asked for have beci
contemplated by the board of educa
tlou for long over a year long befon
the municipal lighting plant hccnmi
an active issue in city politics. Wi
fully realized a year ago last Octobe
or November that If the same rate o
Increase in the population of the Gran
school district continued for auothe
year we would be compelled to bulh
this coming summer. The recent die
covery. too , that the East Lincoli
school building is In a dangerous con
dition has made it necessary to asl
for the amount named in the offlcia
notice , $25,000. It is. therefore , not i
matter of politics , but a matter o
sheer necessity in providing for Noi
folk's greatest business interest it
children that has compelled us ti
ask you , the voters , for these bonds.
It is entirely within your hands ti
determine what Norfolk's school pol
icy shall be. The board will be go\
orncd entirely by what you wish. I
you , the voters , desire that Norfoll
shall adopt in her school system :
policy that is non-progressive ; a po
icy that will keep our schools at :
standstill while our neighboring schoc
systems move forward ; a policy tha
will keep the rising generation of Noi
folk's young men and women fron
making the Norfolk of the future al
she should be , then these bonds shoul
be defeated. The defeat of thcs
bonds will do just these tilings.
The defeat of the bonds will meat
too. in the immediate future , the fo
lowing very bad conditions :
1. It will mean the continuance c
half-day sessions in the kindergarten
anil first grades.
2. H will mean that dozens of on
boys and girls will have to go witlion

the teachers ; for where so many c
our teachers have from forty-live t
fifty-five pupils in the rooms it is in
possible to give the thorough instrm

to the weaker pupils.

NEWS AND VIEWS
London , March 2r > . While much
has not been heard from the United
States on the subject , much discussion
has been going on in London during
the past week or so over the plan pro
posed by certain German patriotic so
cieties to keep a hold on the kaiser's
emigrants. Tlu Pan-German league
and the German Nationality associa
tion , Impressed by the fatherland's
enormous annual loss of citizens , will
ask for an amendment of the existing
law under which German citizenship
ends after ten years after emigration
unless the emigrants register at the
nearest consulate. So strictly do these
societies want the laws revised , that
not only will a native German not lose
Ills citizenship after ten years , but
even when he becomes naturalized in
another country , that naturalization
will hold only as long as he is in the
land of his adoption. When he re
turns to Germany , lie will be a citizen
in full. England would lose a large
number of good citizens under such a
law. as well as would the United
It Is probable that the more fre
quent appearance in public of the de
posed King Manual of Portugal has
had something to do with the reports
that a revolution is impending in Portugal
tugal with a view of replacing Manuel
on the throne. Political students re
cently returning from Lisbon state ,
however , that a revolution is not likely -
ly , pointing out the satisfaction of the
people with present conditions as the
reason for their assertions. A general
election has been arranged for next
mouth , and although serious problems
arc yet to bo considered , the people aw
a whole are contented and confident
that everything will \\ork out all right.
From Rome there comes a great
many expressions of dissatisfaction
over the decision of the kaiser of Ger
many not to go to Italy during the
national celebrations this spring , butte
to entrust thi ; representation of Germany -
many to the crown prince , on his re
turn from the orient. The press ol
Italy lias been eagerly discussing the
expected visit of the kaiser , and hnd
published many interviews with pub'
He men on its significance. It would
have been regarded as a useful recog
nition of the vitality of the triple al
liance , as well as a tribute to united
Italy. It is believed that the attitude
of the Vatican has largely entered intr
the kaiser's change of plans , since the
pope has announced that lie will nol
receive any sovereign who visits Rome
and the king of Italy durlnc the na
Merlin's suffragettes are trying an
other line of campaign on lines en
tirely opposite those of their Britisl
colleagues. They have resolved U
convert the male intellect , appealing
with soft blandishment to the mal <
heart. Instead of smashing windows
and insulting ministers , they don theii
smartest gowns , make themselves as
attractive as possible and invite tin
unconverted men to their political tej
in pleasantly decorated salons , when
soft music assists the subtle suffragis
arguments. Cynics call it conversioi
without scratches , but it seems to bi
working like a charm. Many of tin
most prominent members of the reicb
stag , as well as other politics , ar <
to be found at these political teas , am
many unsuspecting men are reportei
to have been converted without not
ing the painful process.
What to do with German youths 1 :
the critical period between the ages o
1-1 and 20 , when army training begins :

mainly in organizing committees i

education , recreation , sport and r (
