Dayton, By W. J.JPnyne. Lflkota Opens School. The new Lakota school was mentioned on the front page of last week's Advance. There was not space then to mention some other advantages of the new building. The fine large combination gymnasium and auditorium will permit organization of a high school basketball team, and will also allow full range to home talent plays, debating, declamatory work, etc. The floor of the gymnasium can be filled with folding chairs and with bleachers along tbe south wall furnish a seating capacity of .100 to enjoy programs given by' tbe young folks. Space is provided under the 40-ft. stage for storing folding chairs when not in use. The engine room Is spick and span with a Kewnneo hot water system to furnish heat, and a separate hot w.ater system to supply hot water for the shower baths. Janitor Win.- Aaldlrks Is very proud uf the new engine room. He pointed out the two hot water boilers with . their valves and gadgets all neat as a pin, and the separate coal room, and a room where ashes can be hoisted to the ground level. The shower rooms are convenient to the gymnasium, and have dross- Ing rooms, toilets, and lavatories combined in one big room for boys, and a similar well appointed room for girls.' There are also other toilets on the upper floors for young children so they will not have to bo allowed far from their class rooms. With the promise of the new modern building It bus been possible to get and hold the best teachers. Prof. E. L. Grabau, superintendent of the school, who has now served four years, won a master's degree at university of Iowa ttyls summer. As a part of his work to win the degree of master of arts in education he prepared a 135-page typewritten bound book on spelling. This was called a thesis on multiple choice tests in spelling. Professor Grabau had previously taken a B. A. degree at Upper Iowa university, and .served as superintendent of Morley Iowa, school four years before he came to Lakota. All grade.teachers at Lakota have at least two years preparation and a first grade county certificate. Three of the four high school teachers have bachelor's degrees. The faculty Includes Professor Grabau; superintendent, Prof. R. E. Hamqulst, principal, who has served eight years, Audrey Hastings, Eleanor 'A. Lockwood, Cheryll Showalter, Helen Awe, Lucy Carson, and Miss Prlggie. The school, built at a cost of $44,000 now, would have cost much more in the high price time of a few years ago.

We all will have to do more work than we did in the high • time, and do it with better planning. At the Register & Tribune convention, which we attended last week, we found all the folks at the office in Des Moines had set. themselves to do a "little more" than th£ job had previously required.' The writer has 'been obliged to increase duties till now we, as Register and Tribune subscription salesman, maintain one of the largest territories in the state, looking after new and renewal subscription business, and in addition "employ and train men for 11 other territories and supervise their work. Along with this work we look after the Advance circulation field work: write a few farm advertisements, and keep this column filled with more or less readable accounts of what we see around about. This matter of doing more and more each year Is just a question of making use of our increased experience. As Ralph Olsen, of Ledyard, said in one of our stories of power farming a couple of weeks ago, "We can grow 175 acres of corn with a tractor this year, and then with increased experience in use of the tractor anc power machinery, we can grow 200 acres next year." Mr. Olsen is young man following out that theory for himself. FARM NEWS AND COMMENT.
