COSTLY LITTLE SCHOOLS. Records In the offfce -of the county superintendent of pubUc instruction disclose solne interesting facts with regard to the one-teacher schools in Allen county. From the?e records we find that there Is one school with a total enrollment of four pupils, one with iseven,, three with eight, four with nine, one with ten,—ten schools |with an average enrollment of eight students each. There are 49 schools with fewer than 20 pupils enrolled. Altogether there are. 67 one-teacher schools In Allen county with an average per teacher of 16 pupils. When Allen county was organized and divided into school districts it was necessary that these .districts should be small because roads were so bad, generally speaking, that pupils had to be near enough to the schoolhouse to walk. But that time has passed, or just about pa.'iied. ThC: time has come now. when school, districts can be extended over larger territory because roads are good all the year around and practically evei-y family has an automobile by which, the children of the household might be taken any reasonable distance every day to school. Or all the children of a neighborhood could be gather^ ed up by a bus, dropped at school in the morning and taken back home in the evening at a fraction of the cost which would be involved It is interesting, and Igratifying -to learn that.-^nsas Is well represented in tpurists offices and books of trayeitbat will be;hknded out to motorists in various Mrts ^ the country. ^Rre Conoco Travel bureau has completed a new contract with the; Kansas Ciuu^lier of Commerce by which-it wIU continue Xfi use the booklet "Through Kansas.Over Itoyal Roads" until its own book on Kankas travel is .published. This agency routed 32,000 touring partiei tbropgh Kansas in 1032 as compared with only 18,000 in 1931. Its director. L. H. McAllster, is ^preparing text and [pictures for a new KansaCs touring book. The Missouri-Kansas-Oklahoma Hotells Men's association announces tliat it is preparing to distribute 40,000 copies of ''Through Kansas Over Royal Roads" to stimulate travel to and I through this state. All of which is as it should be. Recently the council of a large city passed a resolution calling upon the power company which supplied the city jwlth electric current to restore pre-war rates. The resolution was quickly rescinded, however,- when.the council ^discovered that if its demand was complied with the average xate at present paid by the residence customers of the community would advance 90 per cent and that the city's total bill [ THR t QUEER BEER BILL. The more the details of the beer bijl noi pending before • Congress would be increased $1,500;000. The in maintaining'a separate school, it | incident illustrates the tendency of would be interesting to know, for governing bodies to leap before they [example, just how much it costs the i'*^"^- " ^ brings out the ir. bei;ome : ent Its —exampli hfgh known the more inconsist- [jrovisions appear to be. For the bill imposes fines a.s $1,000 on the purchaser of aibottle of beer in dry territory. If - tlie beer they propose to make is that bad how can it be legal anywhere? , '.. Another iprovision of the bill imposes tremendous taxes and penalties upon any man- who ventures to manufacture beer In his own home and for his own use, wljich seems jjueer in the light of the clamor the iramers of! this bill have been making for years past about "personal liberty." ; All the way through the bill it is 'manifest that the man who inter- iferes with the brewers', business, or 'enters into competition with it in vany way, is to be punished much ."more severely In comparison than {any violator of the Volstead act. It -is obvious that in framing the bill - the advice of the men who expect ; to engage in the brewing business ;in a big way was dominant. That 'Was nigde clear when the section as it appeared in the original Collier ; bill providing for a 2.75 , per cent i ^ijeer was changed to 3.2 per cent •rating. It was shown again when a -Democratic representative, mindful ' of. the provision In the national plat- j form, offered the amendment to prevent beer froni being sold In saloons. "Tliat amendment was promptly voted down; notwithstanding the Dem ""ocratic pledge to "promote ternper- . ance" and I. "effectively prevent the return of the saloon." The present beer, bill would become effective a month after it^ signature by the ; president, a provision obviously In;' tended to give.the states no time to set up legal machinery to tiontrol the sale of beer which ineantlme : could be sold without restraint any* where and to anyone in many states. •"Fortunately, even If the bill passes : the Senatei the President will have ^: something to say about when it goes .. into effect. patrons of the district where only four pupils are enrolled to maintain their .school. The chances are those four children could be sent to the most expensive boarding school in some city for a good deal less than it costs to provide a school house and a teacher for them near their homes.. The thing to prepare' for at any rate is a system of consolidated schools.—larger school districts, better schools, lower cost. NOT REALLY SO BAD. The R. G. Dun agency reports that commercial failures In 1932 reached the high record of all time both in'number and amoimt. In the presence of that report what .percentage of failures would you say there had been in 1932? Ten, 15. perhaps even 20 per cent? Well, the Dun agency says that this highest of all records actually represented less than 2 per cent of mercantile concerns In the United States. As the Tooeka Canitii snvs tjhi<; poim ^saa -C and daughter Vesta and a the Topeka Capital says, this coun- 1^^^^^, ^ saitnhart. of El Dorado. try has got so bloomln' big that actual figures of the business It does reach astronomical. figures., too big really to be comprehended. We are appalled when told that commercial failures last .year Involved some hundreds of millions, perhaps even a billion or more dollars. But when we get back to figures we can understand and discover that there were only two mercantile failures out of every hundred, that ninety-eight business concerns out of every hundred weathered the storm, It doesn't look so bad. A SORRY RECORD. If the work of the present Democratic House of Representatives is to be taken as a fair forecast o^ |What is going to happen to us during the next two years of complete tjemo- cratic ajscendancy. it will be plenty. When the present session opened last December Democratic leaders announced that their first job would ibe to balance the budget. First;they "seemed to be in agreement that a manufacturers' sales tax wojuld be one of the foremost budget-balancing measujres. Then some pf them discovered that President-elect Roosevelt was ''liorrified" at that idea .and they promptly dropped it. The Spcakpr and other leaders then went to see Mr. Rposevelt and came away announcing that a new program, had been agreed upog. including further economies and increased Income taxes in the lower brackets. A feeble effort was made to work out this program but soon It was abandoned. Various other things were i talk? cl of imtil yesterday when the annoi ncement .was made by • Democrat c leaders that no further effort wo lid be made towaijd balancing tte budget. There may be some spasmodic attempts: to {|ut ap- propriatiO[}s, but all tax prjjposals have beer | definitely dropped. It is a'pprry record. The -Register has frequently remarked that astire way to wealth was to invent something the people did not hive to have but which was Cheap and convenient and served a useful pui pose. Another illustration ' of that great truth was supplied the other day by dispatches announcing the^'deatii of William A. Spinks, who' developed the idea of a small cube of ci^lk for billiard cues and teresting statement that on the basis of pre-war costs i the doniestlc customers of the countrj' saved 343 million dollars last year In electric bills. Full time operation of the Standard refinery at Neodesha has been resumed, calling 140 men; bac^ to work.
