A a be i it fowls. Hereafter the largest number of candidates j the fowl which escapes the confines for lie office of county superintendent 01 schools in the history of the state Are applicants for the position iat quot e ninety two counties of Indiana according to N. Hines state superintendent of Public instruction. Election of the new superintendents for a four year term will be held in Ali the counties june 4, when the township trustees will assemble in the county seat cities. Women candidates have entered the race in a number of counties and a win provide formidable opposition to men aspirants in Many sections of the state. As a result of the election toni. Many new school officials probably will take charge of the county educational units. Or. Hines attributes the Large number of candidates to the political turn Over in the state which has resulted in the political complexion of the county Board of education being changed in Many counties and to the new Law passed by. The recent legislative session which provides new requirements for the office and increased salaries. Special Certis Cates under the Law the Only persons eligible to the office were those holding a state three year teachers License. Or License of higher Grade. The new Law makes it possible to qualify for the office under the old requirements but also provides for the issuance of a special county superintendent s certificate by the state Board of education. This certificate is granted without examination to graduates of a Standard four year College or Normal school. It is expected that a Large number of per on will qualify for the position tii rough the new special certificate provision. The new salary clause establishes a minimum salary of $1,500 for the office. However the county Board of education with the approval of the county commissioners May fix any amount in excess of the minimum salary which is agreed on.

Richard Park Veteran Sullivan county superintendent who has been the school head in his county for Twenty seven years was unable i farm Bureau fruit growers organizing sunday school convention of its masters lands and despoil a neighbouring Garden the Law provides that the killing of trespassing fowls is Legal. Heretofore the owner of fowls has been exempt from the necessity of keeping them penned up. The philosophy of the Law under the old theory Vas that the owner of lands Likely to be invaded by hungry and destructive chickens should protect himself against such raids by the erection of u Chicken tight Fence. It was his business to keep the chickens omit not the Chicken owner s business to keep the chickens up. The fault in this theory is at once obvious for the owner of a few chickens might be the cause of great expense to Many neighbors whereas by shouldering the Burden of any one of his neighbors he could protect All. Thus the Law advances toward Justice. The new Law. Makes an outlaw of the roving Chicken. With its status thus defined the cause of countless neighbourhood feuds is removed or at least the Burden of blame is cast upon the owner of the peripatetic fowls likewise the responsibility for their death if they stray from the Home pen upon the planted lands of another and suffer the extreme penalty. The Law declares a perpetual open season on stray chickens and Marks another Day when Domestic animals had the step in the departure from Pioneer Freedom of the land.
