The only real objection which has been made to the proposition to vote S25.000 in bonds to erect a high school building' has been on the score of the increase it would make in the taxation. This objec tion has been raised, as a rule, cither by properly owners who have no, children and arc not public spirited enough to desire the im provement of the town and its edu cational advantages, or by those who are ignorant of the real in crease it will make in their taxes. . The bonds arc to be in denomina tions of $1,000 each, and will bear four per cent interest. Bonds numbered one and two will be pay able ten years after date and the remaining bonds will be payable in their numerical order, two each year, until the entire issue is paid.

In favoring the high school bonds vc have been actuated by a desire to have every boy and girl in North Platte receive the best educational advantages possible, and this can only be attained by increased school accommodations. Niuc tenths of the pupils who graduate from our high school will receive no higher education, and in this day, when a liberal education is helpful and cuts so much figure in every vocation in life, it is necessary that each boy and girl of today receive every educational advantage possi ble to the end that they may suc cessfully cope with the future prob lems of life. The best educational results can not be a ttaiucd where school rooms are overcrowded, where lack of ac commodations compel half d...
