The Rural school Randolph Herald and news there is an insistent demand for More and better schools in the farm communities. Any politician or propaganda is who for any purpose to achieve any ulterior object cries for the ii tie red schoolhouse and generally gets a condition is not pc guar to ver Mont acne it exists the country Over. A feeling prevails that in the pro Gress of education generally the Rural communities have not shared As they should. Colleges and universities can hardly Peix their doors wide enough to Adi Uii the throng of Young men and women who would enter. Business and technical schools Are crowded he High schools that almost every sizeable Village maintains have Large and growing enrolments. The graded and elementary schools when we turn to the Rural school what. A. Difference ? a few pupils of All Ages from first primary eighth Grade gathered in from a wide area a teacher generally a be ginner in the work often discouraged and homesick a none too comfortable school building measured b modern standards of Comfort a meager school equipment compared to that the Village school a general air Folone soreness and depression. As tothe Quality of the work done it sur passes what might be mind involuntarily goes Bac the old Days. It sees a hive Well ailed with youngsters some As Large not so old. As the master that worthy a Bright Alert Young Man on Way to the achievement of some of recession a Plant and equipment very modest but on a Par with academies of the period wherein the Best scholars hoped to round out their Edu cation with a term or two As the master did. There was in addition this distinct difference from the pres ent the District school 3tood As the Hub and Center of the Community and about it circled a Large part of the Community s current and ultimate in Terest. Those were the Halcyon Days of the " Little red schoolhouse. It did the work of Public education and for the period did it Well. Why the Chang present conditions Are we bet Ter or worse off can the Little red schoolhouse Ever come Back what is the ultimate Hope ahead for Rural school let us allow something for the Mel lowing influence of time which in variably enhances values. Most of there was no insatiable demand As now by business for Young men and j in n c Corni no thou porn the typewriter keyboard j in fact teaching of necessity be j came the Avenue up through which j j journeyed a Host of Young men who i these the schools especially Rural f Are now bereft. The same Type of i Young men doubtless exists but Rural school teaching has no attractions for them. They Don t have to can foot the Bills for their life preparation or if not they can choose from a wide selection of opportunities More to their taste and fitting. The Rural schoolmaster is almost a species extinct. Or perhaps just As Well qualified scholastically even better trained. A a a n a . And the whole situation has changed from former times. This girl either a Village resident or a Farmer s daughter with four years of tillage High school life freshen mind and often out of touch and out of sympathy with the lot that Falls to her she lacks that sense of keen inter est in her work needed to up build a institution none too flourishing attest. It is for her too often merely a Job at so much per week endured until she can better herself. The quietude the loneliness the de pressing dullness of it revolt to one suddenly and almost completely re moved from the modern life in town. There Are actual hardships to be Many Rural communities a comfortable boarding place for the teacher is not available. What some of these girls encounter in occasional cases does not tend to stimulate their courage or interest. Generally however the perseverance of the sex helps them through. But they Are Apt to seek a change either in location or in work and Are soon lost to Rural schools. The problem of the Rural school teacher is perhaps the greatest one the confronts those engaged in educational work. How to get teachers Well qualified for the task imbued with sufficient enthusiasm to produce results and adequate in number to Man the schools already open is tax ing the authorities in every state in the Union. The most feasible solution is first to offer a scale of wages quite beyond that of the present even with its Recert material Advance Sec Ond to stimulate a desire for service where service is most needed third to encourage a kindly attitude toward the teacher and this applies to All communities Rural and Urban fourth to establish some professional goal ahead toward Wincn the teacher May work. These agencies singly or May not achieve a that is j do. . Sext to the teacher the second re t Buhite for a successful school is up i Nils who Are students. pupils i a e merely school attendants others Are students. A teacher May Stiina late inspire some children the Kcf forts of the Best teacher Are lost on others. Some simply cannot respond others might readily if they received the right direction at Home. The school Ana the teacher c3nnat Arall. The Home in these modern . Neglects the Day it formerly per formed and which so Wen supplemented the work of the Little red other thing3 being equal a d school will outstrip one few in numbers. Psychological of course the of mind upon mind. Here is the Rural Segool of our lore fathers had an immense advantage Over the typical present one. V the Larrer families the greater Rural population the older age of pupils All combined to make the Large and Active school. The tide of Immi Gration has change this. The town school As profited but the Rural school has suffered. We hear a Preat Deal about Restor ing the Rural school. If we could Only restore the Rural population there would be no difficulty on that score. The Rural school has such a hold that it will almost always continue until a Community disintegrates. Audit will revive with half a Chance of usefulness. Whenever economic conditions change the people flock Back to the farms As they have fled from them the Rural school will move on ahead of the procession. Like the Rural Church it is now weakened. By every natural and sen sible Means it should be aided to carry on for the Sake of the Young yet remaining who must depend upon i for their needed elementary Educa Tion. So Long As the number and location of the Public schools Are left with the local authorities we May be sur that the most responsible agencies will look out for the welfare of their several communities. The fact that there Are at present1557 Rural schools in operation i Vermont an average of about seven to each town not including the cities or Large towns without Rural schools. Shows that the state is Well served in respect to their number and distribution. The closing of Rural schools and transporting of pupils to Central schools is not general but exception Josl a. A. m.

Or out the official count shows that Harry w. Witters of st. Johnsbury who ran against Porter ii. Dale for con Gress in this District fared rather the worst of any of the democrats of the entire state. Porter h. Dale was a dry from Start to finish and was not afraid to say so. Witters was a wet from Start to finish and was not afraid to make his stand known. Therefore it must be recognized that the Issue was rather closely drawn. Witters received Only just Over 9000 votes while Dale received Well Over 33,000. Durick a congressional candidate in the first District against to congressman Green received Oyer 2000 votes More than Witters. The result would indicate that the Issue was a dead one in Eastern Vermont at least. Of More emphasis say the animal husbandry men of the state College of agriculture should be placed by tothe average Dairyman on the importance of the use of a Well bred f Bull he will pay $25 for a single service. From a Good stallion and Ais think nothing of it. He considers it an investment and feels Well repaid when he has raised a Nice Colt. Yet the same Man seems to feel that he can afford to use anything that comes Bandy when he wants a sire to head his Herd of Dairy cattle. The Short sightedness of the use of a scrub Bull is too evident when one stops to con Sider us Over 70 per cent of the state s agricultural income comes from her dairies. Dependent upon the Dairy cow for a living Ashe is tothe Vermont Farmer must give More serious consideration to the improve ment of his Herd. The Coil dealers state that they can get All the Coal they want on the open Market but the Price will be from $5 to 58 per ton More than they Are charging for Coal bought under con tract n t providing they can get the contract Coal. Coal operators and paper makers Are apparently playing the same game. Squeezing their customers on Advance orders that they May have More spot Market mater Ial. For example when contract paper is sold for $7.40 per Hundred spot Market paper is perhaps $10, or even $15 per Hundred.
