That the boards Is keenly sllve ' to It
as Inl'sted by President C. J. Ernst.
-ho, after remarklnir In hU "Inaugural"
address that tha board faced at the
cutset with such a deficit, aald:
, "Ws mmt endeavor to do our full duty
to the, children of otir cliv and their
parents; Ukrwlae to the employe! of the
board and to the taxpayer. And It will
be no easy task to reconcile and adjust
without fear, favor or prejudice all the

Admittedly, the bond Issue would afford
esrly relief and, It la pointed out by
those favoring It, clear the deck! for fur

but they have only been bo for two or
three years Previous to that they were
below grade. It la regarded as extremely
doubtful If the patrona of the schools
would wish them again 'reduced.
The physical condition of the schools
la also good, although more room la
needeit'ln certain plaoea. It require regu
lar attention and expense,nowever to
maintain a good physical condition.
Someone has said that the upkeep eoat
might be out, that is. Instead of having
IjS.OOO worth of Improvements and re
pairs made each year, restrict them to
SiO.OW. At that rata for five years the
IJno.000 deficit would vanish.
In answer to this the statement la made
that sooner or later, not only the de
ferred Improvements, but others In con
sequence of the delay would be required,
so rhat at the end of five years the ao
rumulated repairs might cost mora than
to havo kept up with eurrent needs.
Members Mot ' Aaltatln.
Bosrd members are not as yet agitat
ing the bond proposition openly, and, so
far as known, have not signified their
attitude toward It, but do not hesitate to
say they would Ilka advice on the subject.
Here is a nawly-orf anlsed board of
admittedly high standing, eight of whose
members have recently ridden Into office
on the crest of a tidal wave of popu
larity, tliua bringing with then) the high
est expression of the penple'd confidence.
And they and the four holdover members
enter the new period on amicable terms,
which tends to deepen publlo confidence
ia the board as a whole. f
Now, the question la asked, suppose ths

the Icebox, where he had crawled from
the top of the bar. "Butch.," with a far

floor and ran iout the front door, where
he made .his getaway In short order,
t'pon the return of the bartender, Lem

cursed his luck that the man had escaped.
"Although there was no cash In the
register there are fifty-eight sliver dol

onyx railing which could easily be de
tached, ia worth over 4fl0," remarked
Lemming. Anyway, "Butch." Is some
