With economy as their, football, ten candidates for election to the school- hoard lined up on the platform of Galbraith school last'night to tell ratepayers just what the ;tt ord meant to them. And there was a variety of ions, almost as many as there' are' candidates. That there is urgent need for some kind of economy, is aRpar7 cut from the large number qf would- be trustees, but the course it should: is debatable among them H. R. Davidson came right out and said what he would do if elected, John Scott, the North L'ctbbridge: ratepayer's candidate, lined np Mr, Davidson, and said he wpuld ond his motions at the school, board meetings, and he was Mr. Davidson was not, he promised to institute the motions outlined by him.'Arthur Hayr said that he woulif support- the motions if elected and J. II. Oliver committed himself on' the 'question of school superintendent and -school carpenter. If elected said Mr. Davidson I j move at the first meeting oi the J neu jear that the school'carpenter's- services be dispensed with, is the use of paying a man a year when there is nothing for him to do Mr. Tuck well interposed-to wh> policy, .throughout civic aiUirs to dispense with the services .of the working man, and not consid er the hifih salaried officials. 'If he is not doing anything should we have him asked i Mr luckucll thought that a jani tor could not be expected to do the carpenter's work. According to your theory then replied Mr. Davidson, "we should have a school tinsmith, a plumber and every other kind'of an artisan 'Competency or personalities do not enter into the at all. If we are .paying for something we are not totting it's time we quit, and if >ou want these things vote for me. And that isn't enough. Vote for a man who will second my motions. And' that isn't enough. Vote for a man. who -will''support the motions with his vote. In'sneaking of the question of the sti{ r tint indent Mr. Davidson said one appreciate it means to say what I nm go ing to. .Mr. Hamilton was a fellow principal with me for two and a hail years, iiuti as I'sai.d before, personal equations cannot .enter into the que.s tion tte cannot afford to pa) a y.ear- .for a. superintendent to do nothing but supervise. If elected, 1 [Will move; that llrj.
