TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE APRIL 17 1934 HAZEL V, THOMAS VISITOR IN CITY Is Republican Candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Hazel V. Thomas of Belmond, Wright county superintendent and ' republican candidate for state su- ; perintendent of public instruction, in a visit to Mason City called on a number of local residents in the interests of her campaign. Her " foremost claim upon the office is that the present superintendent has served two terms and should, according to precedent, withdraw. She emphasized the point that schools r e q u i r e "educational -leadership" rather than "political leadership." "I am not a politician," she said, "but 1 am \-itally interested in the welfare of the schools of the state I believe that the people should be informed concerning the needs of the schools and that new policies and programs should be interpreted to them. "We all know that the oncoming generations must have more intelligent training if they arc able to understand the problems of the new society. New thechnics and new ideals must be developed in the schools in order that education can keep pace with changing economic and social conditions. "The only hope for the future is an educated citizenry, yet some people are willing that our educational systems should slip back to lower standards of efficiency. The educational leadership of the state should work for advancement in the schools. 'If I should be successful in the elections, it shall be my single aim Lo promote the welfare of the schools. I shall not ally myself with other interests in an effort at political wire pulling." Prepare it, taste it, and cheer!
