■tf «s ■■•«. ^"^ Hi •■- *s Established 1S78 GLARE, MIOHI&AN, FRIDAY MOENINe, JUNJS 19, 1908, New Series: Vol, 16, No. $1 Special meeting of Clare, School District Largely Attended. De- the % Proposal For Added School Room ferred to Some Future Time. The special school meeting of district at the high school Friday evening was unanimous in favor of a new steam heating plant at the city sohool building, and without imposing any financial limitations in any waj practically urged the board of education to install the very 'best syBtem of heating and ventillation possible. "Desire for excellence rather than for economy "was the evident tone of tbe meeting." A steam boiler large enough beyond the needs of the present building will be installed. The estimated cost is close to 83000. A resolution was passed advisory to the school board asking for sewer .connections for the school and installation of a modern system of closets. This, however, has no binding force and is not recorded in the minuses as it was,not mentioned in the call of the meeting. Definite action on this will bo taken at the annual meeting next month. In the meantime it is expected that the city authorities, residents in the northwest part of town and the school board will cooperate to form a special sewer district for construction of a sewer, probably down Seventh street, to serve the needs of all. The question of added scfiool room was laid away to some future time withouta dissenting vote. One or two of those opposed to such a movement wanted to show fight, but finding that everybody else was conciliatori- ly inclined quickly subsided and the meeting was devoid of any striking features. It was argued by John A. Jackson, supervisor of the third ward, that there is no need of increased school room as the school population is falling -away, P. A, Bennett urged that while there are less pupils in the lower grades, there would never come * time when it would not require one teacher and one room for each grade. The increase of high school students, he said, forces the district to fade the question sooner *or later of providing more recitation room for the high school as there is now only one small recitation room for a high school of 80 pupils which promises to be 100 in a year or two and which next year * will require six classes, 70 pupils in all, to climb up and down stairs reciting in the laboratory in the basement. He also read a letter from the- state board of health advising the "abandonment of the basement rooms for class purposes and the erection of additional rooms above the grade." Alderman Mason of the First op- * posing the movement against the present basement rooms as school rooms called attention to the fact that both the state board of health letter and the letter giving estimates as read by Secretary Tatman for heating plant, described the rooms in question as exceptional to the ordinary basement. He likewise urged that the district cannot expect such a. large amount of primary money as we have been receiving. T. C. Holbrook urged the need of building a ward school in the first ward so that small pupils in the south part of the district maY not have so far to go. A number of people, are heard favoring some such idea as the solution of the basement prablem if a suitable site can Qa agreed on. Comr. Welch and Rev. G. W. Max- Well advanced the idea that simply providing seats and good quarters for pupils in school is not all we ought to do for our boys^ and girls. The former urged ideas of manual and commercial training such as will give those who go out of Our public schools definite knowledge and power to do things referring to Reed City as an. example of a nearby town where something is being* done in this line. The latter argued that having done all that has been done by the district, it is a mistake to stop short of adding sucji, things as, at a comparatively email expense, give direct aid to our ' boy and girl life. Their plea was for continued effort for our boys and • girls. ■ ; ' There was no division wben the V0te» on. deferring action on building was taken 'aud the meeting ended With the utmost good feeling.

Immediately upon receipt of these reports from the various institutions they are complied in the governor's office and a printe'd comparative statement is issued, copies being sent to the board of trustees, the managing official and tbe steward of eacb. institution. By'thls table is reveal ed at a glance the cost of tlae various materials covered in the compilation at each institution, Naturally the management of every institution is anxious-to make the "best possible showing and there is a constant ef- , fort on all sides to reduce costs for , supplies, The result to the state la a saving of many, many dollars. This is a sample of the business methods which Governor Warner has introduced in the conduct of ex'ecut- tive business in every department. . CLARE BOYS MAKE GOOD, Rudolph.Schaeffer Gets $1,100 at Columbus, O., and Burt^San-' ford .$1,000 at Mayville- Teachers. Rudolph Schaeffer is) teacher of manual training at Columbus, O., next year at a salary of 81,100 anti Burt Sanford superintendent of May- ville schools at a salary of **1,000. The former is a member of the class '04 and the. latter '05 of the Clare high school. Mr. Schaeffer taught* school in Clare county and took a course in an art school in Detroit. Then he made good teaching manual traing. This summer he will travel in Europe and attend an art conven- in London. Mr. Sanford took a life certificate course at the Central Normal, taught in Mayville school during the past year and now on the initiative of the board is tendered the position of superintendent. The early recognition of these vtwo boys along with that* of Joseph; Bowler as noted elsewhere is a splendid lesson to all our boys and to our high school graduates. Neither of these three young men were what is called brilliant in their early sch,ool days. Nor Were they among? tbe hero class that pose for attractions at the silly girl age. Btit they were, plodders. They kept free from, bad habits. They kept eternally at it. Now $rst success comes. Their fu ture waits on their future efforts. Many more Olare boys' more brilliant than,these are failures.thus far. Thet; reason is evident. Introduction of New* System By ' • Governor Warner. Lansing, June 18,—One of the business reforms of the present administration, which is saving the state hundreds of dollars, has beeu the introduction ot a system of comparative reports of the cost.of supplies at the various institutions maintained by the state. The use of this report marks the introduction into the management of thO state institutions of a practice successfully used ay many large, private „ corporations, Each month the stewards of the var* ^otis state institutions are required to make an itemized report to the governor's office of the amount purchased and the cpst of meats, fish, poultry, flour, coffee, tea, sugar* hatter^ milk, eggs, vegetables aud coal. These to* porta are received fr^m the five in* 8anet,'asylums at Kalamauoo, Poiitiae, Roles Soirnin Political' Advertisin The following rules adopted by tho Michigan Republican Editorial Asso^ ciation governing' political advertis-" ing are the rules by which the Sen-- tinel will be governed throughout the*' nomination campaign to the Septem- * ber primary: Candidates for local offices will be * given a free announcement of their candidacy and the subsequent pnbli-,* cation of matter relating to their candidacy which has a real news value.'- All other matter prior to the- pri-; mary election will be charged for at regular commercial rates as advertising, pure reading matter at the pure reader rate and display matter aa the display rate. This association unequivocally con- dems the practice of publishing paid matter in the editorial or news col umns in the interest of any candidate before the primary without some distinguishing mark to denote that it is paid matter and as such does not in the slightest degree represent the attitude of the paper publishing the same. We condemn without equivocation the acceptance of money in any way Whatever for editorial support and newspaper influence as being dishonest, reprehensible and tending to the utter destruction of a newspaper's most valuable possession, itsinfluenee in the community in which it in pub- • lished.
