Most Americans, rightly believe that a puo- lic proojcm Is well on its v»y to beljig %'lved when the majority of the citizens becowc thoi- qug.hly Intgrmed cpncernlng It. The ipo^l, ilis- courneing obstacle's .sclwoLs lia.vo tiau to face In recent years Is lock of understating by the public. No^ matter npw whose fault, it, is. Perhaps boUl teacher^ and laymen have be«n to blame. The fact remaUis: Nearly everyone feels competent to criticise the schools, but few take the trouble to try to understand their alms nna methods. , The Slogan of American Education Week— "Visit Your School"—Is, therefore, worth heeding. The schools are keeping open house, it Is a chance to spe what your local schools sirs dolnnp-nnd trying to do, It Is a ehanee also to let teachers and children feel that you cars nbout the work they are doing. If every citizen, whether or not a parent, will find time to visit, observe, and ask questions, and. wll| follo\y this up with sonic further effort to inform himself concerning schools elsewhere, heartening progiess in American education can lie expected. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MpNITOU. Bids On Mgnicipal Purchases Most .states have laws prescribing thnt a municipality advertise In newspapers for bids on purchases cxceedinu; jspo or $1,000.

These laws arc designed to..'assure wide competitive bidding niid to ;'aiiisL collusion In th c sctttn •> of prices' a lid the awai'ding of business. In uicm- • selves, they are not effective, however. Many potential siippliers-partlcularly out-of-tow,, firms —will not see the advertisement. H is also possible to evade the law by dividing bulk re«|invo- menls. Into numerous small orders of lesser amount than reqiilre advertised bids.

' XIII AIDING beside Basil, listening to him, Miss Amy thought of ner manifold beatifying miracles •nd wondered it there isn't such a thing as pushing your luck too Uf. Basil had begun by asking whether this meeting of the Daughters ot thc Old Dominion wasn't chiefly for the purpose of electing BlakesvilUs's:. delegate to the annual national -convocation to be held next "month in Washington. ^A rhetorical -query; Miss Amy felt safe enough in saying yes.'^Wasn't it the custom, Basil then asked, that in the choosing ol delegates, the Daughters everywhere tried to put their best foot forward, to make a favorable impression on- the national body? Miss Amy murmured yes. And to that end, wasn't it traditional for a younger Daughter to be elected? "C*, yes," Miss Amy said. And didn't alt the other chapters in the United Stales send oft from It*"' . mWrt some exceptionally charming young member? "They • f fm **•" ^'^ M ISS Amy tenta- «iv*!y. "I've seen the newspaper Yes." Basi1 th « pear? - Wlth wa&i > t inevijable answer. Besides thc suck teeth and the BarUott pear :oniours. Bessie had an ancestor. "Bosh!" Basil exclaimed. "Bosh d tripe, Mrs. Cameron. Just be- :nuse Bessie's grandfather was a general, the rest of you people lere must be judged at the con- 'ocalions as a lot o( old scare- Tows and fuddiduddics? Blakes'- 'ille isn't thinking straight." "But, Basil—" "This year the Blakesville Jaughters must rebel against the Pomeroy tyranny and elec,t another delegate, a pretty,'girl, the prettiest in the chapter," Basil paused dramatically, and added: Rose Cameron!" " Rose _ Cameron? . . . "Oh, my darling!" Miss Amy thought, and had to clutch at the support rod of the surrey's tasseled lop. "Well, Mrs. Cameron?" Miss Amy realized that they were drawing up., to the Earlc house-and-Basil was looking quizzically at her. She gently shook her head. A very nice idea she appreciated it. But— ! ''But you think nothing can be i done?" j "Nothing, Basil. And I'm noli even a voting member, you know I wouldn't be allowed to put a nsmc in nomination, even it I wanted to." "No, but that could be fix«-d Tt is fixed." " ' "Basil," said Sidney f rom the back seat, "arc you insane?" "Y 0 "'' 1 see '" Laughing, he got out ol the surrey and helped Miss Amy do^wn. "Here we are." . » • • jISS. AMY could never atter- ward remember cxactlywhat did happen, though certain high- liihU remame< clear. ". The- open ing ceremonies—she remernbelS 'them, and ITme- ^ s ^H sme " sol ° which was applauded, though not by Miss Amy. To the transaction rf old then the chairman of the nominating committee had risen lo report. One name only, Bessie Pome- roys; and a definite tension in Hie room, lhe president lining her gavel, if. there were no further nominations— "Madam President!" The chair recognized Mrs Rutherford Earle. "I move the nomination of Miss Itose Cameron ns our delegate to the national convocation in May." Well! . . . Gasps, a sort of lull, and two. quick seconds, tiimosi sim.ultaneous, so that the president had to choose between them. Miss Rose Cameron's nomination had been moved and seconded. Are we ready for the vole?" Slips of paper and pencils were circulaied, the tension heightened heads bent. "I shall vole for Bessie," Rose murmured. "Oh, my dear!" Miss Amy whispered, through stiff lips. "Oh, no!" Sidney glowered al Rose. "Don't be a sap," she croaked. The pencils scratched, the slips were collected, tho clerks retired lo tabulate the votes. Anxiety congealed Miss Amy's blood; she would surely have perished, had she not caught Mrs. Earle's eye across the room. Mrs. Earle was smiling, mouthing something. Miss Amy thought she was Faying in pantomime: "It's all over but lh" shouting." All over? Yes, (he clerks had finished their, labulating. "Miss Rose Cameron has been elected—" Miss Amy heard that, but her eyes were so blurred with tears she could ste nothing at all. The meeling adjourned lo Iho dining room for refreshments ot salad and sandwiches, sherbet and sponge cake and coflcc. "Mamma!" "Yes, Rose?" Miss Amy stood up, trembling. 'T don^t Want to go to Washington, Mamma, l wan t to stay here." The protest went unregistered People were surging forward, shaking Miss Amy's hand; her face was blissful. So Rose wild nothing more. , . Gome Now, Boys—Be Sensible .*; Kostnii Has.
