Employes Come Thick and
Fast Following Offers of
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, April 14. (Special.) The
office of the state superintendent of
public instruction appears to be in
"a'r way to depopulation, so many of
the assistants having resigned to go
The latest to accept other places is
Deputy State Superintendent John H.
Woodard, who will resign in August
to accept the principalship of the
county high school at Miles, Mont.,
at a salary of $2,750 the first year and
?3,000 thereafter. Thus again 'does
the state lose an educator because of
its lack of appreciation of ability by
paying salar.es which will keep good
lien in its service.
Dixon Also Goes.
Another man who leaves the state i
superintendent's department is As
sistant Supetintendent A. H. Dixon,
wh? goes to the superintendency of
the city schools of University Place
at a much higher salary' than he was
receiving from the state.
A short time ago Miss Nell Bag
nell, one of the most efficient stenog
raphers at the state house, resigned
her position in "the office to accept a
civil service appointment and is now
It is rumored that Miss Alice
Florer, anothtr assistant in the office
may become a candidate for nomina
tion for state superintendent. In
case State Superintendent Clfmmons
will also be candidate for re-nomina-tion,
of course, out of courtesy. Miss
Florer may resign, but nothing defi
nite is known. It is pretty well under
stood that Miss Florer's friends are
quietly pushing her for the place, but
just how far the pushing lias gone
is not known, although it is said an
effort is being made to encorage Mr.
Clemmons not to again become a
candidate, because of his health.
Woman and Office.
This brings i . the controversary
again whether a woman can hold a
state office. Some are of the opinion
that just as long as women cannot
vote for a constitutional office they
are prohibited from holding a Consti
tutional office. The constitution does
not make itself clear in the matter,
specifying though that in the case
of governor and lieutenant governor,
the occupant must have been an
elector of the stale for the past two
years.. Others claim that as long as
the constitution does not especially
prohibit a woman from holding, they
are eligible to. all offices below the
two named above.
