Carter Lake Club
Has Fine Outlook
For Coming Season
Activities at Carter Lake club are In
creasing and praptlcall'y all of the old
membershlp-sU tad: In the fold. More
applications are being acted Jupon at
every meeting 6t the officer' arid the
outlook is now that, before' the opening
day., May, 30, the total -will bo over 1.X.
The worlot adding 4o. the, comforts at
the club house are gothfefjsteadlly forward
and the most5 recent-'Improvement is In
tho form of ;d number of heayy leather
chairs, a Bettee and a large table- from tho
United ' States 'National bank. It was
formerly parf of the concern's equipment,
and wis purchased at a very reasonable
price. Thjs furniture is being fixed up
and will adorn the lobby of the main
building when repaired.
A new set of lockers, where valuables
can be kept, have been put in the men's
and women's check rooms In the main
building. An, attendant will so look after
Jewelry and valuables, affording club
member, an of,ten-wlehed-for convenience.
On of the most serious obstacles to the
betterment of rural schools would be re
moved If the office of county superinten
dent was removed from the turmoil of
election campaigns, Tolltlca rarely helps
schools. Institution and teacher alike are
damaged by the squabbles of present day
electioneering. "No other person In
school work," says the Nebraska Teacher,
' Is compelled to campaign for his election
spending days and dollars of his own, and
then for his re-election, spending more
dollars of his own and weeks and months
of tlmo that belongs to tho schools and
their Interests. If the' position were ap-
polnttvo, as all other school positions aro,
from tho rural teachers to the presidencies
of the highest Institutions, would not tho
interests of tho schools be better con.
served? And would It not tend to estab
lish the county supcrlntendency as a prtxo
to be sought on Us merits, as an exalted
"If tho position offered greater perma
nency, there would bo greater preparation
for Its duties on the part of thoso seeking
it, and more valuable experience could be
brought to the service of the peopte and
the schools In a fow brief years. Nor
should the selection be limited by state
or county boundary lines, although un
doubtedly tho appointing power would
and should prefer home talent, other
qualifications being equal or nearly so.
Thero Is but little difference between
schools on oppoclto sides of a county
boundary line, and the littte knowledge
possessed of local conditions by a county
teacher should not weigh heavily against
tho superior information and qualifica
tions of another, whose education and
training and experience in other fields
might place him far in the lead of the
home, talent In a very few weeks. But
the "fact once established that a county
superintendent could make a record In
ono county and bo called up higher to a
larger arid more important county, as cltv
superintendents how are, would undoubt
edly place tho county auperlntendency on
a mgner processional plane."
