THEIOOP GIVES f l , J GIVE PEOPLE GREATER POWER Tht poplt of Kentucky pre Interested, deeply interested, in education, as is shown by the advance made in the last ten years. The people want this development and advancement to be of a strong and lasting type, but fiila can not be accomplished either rapidly or consistently so long as the school system . remains in politics. Every good citizen and parent in the state wants the management of their a new and untried man, no matter what progress he was making. This is exactly what the state is now doing with its important business, the business of manufacturing strong citizens out of the raw material of child-life- . It is proposed to amend the Constitution of the state by striking from Sections 81, 93 and 95 of the Constitution the words "Superintendent of the Public Instruction." The objects to be accomplished bj this amendment are to enable, the peo pie of this state to take the office o: Superintendent of Public Instruction out of politics and to continue in office for a longer period than four years any Superintendent whose conduct of the office is highly efficient. Under the operation of the Constitu- Ition, which compels the election of Superintendent of Public Instruction for a term of four years, and which makes this officer ineligible to succeed himself, the people are prevented from eliminating the office from politics and prohibited from retaining in office an efficient officer. The public, in urging this change, should bear in mind the fact that even with the quickest action possible under the law this amendment would not be effective until the candidate elected next August will have served his full term, so that no complications or ill feeling need be developed.

The Superintendent of Public is a constitutional officer and must be elected at a regular election of state officers, and he can not succeed himself. To make this a little plainer, it might be well to state that the name Superintendent of Public Instruction is one of the many names on the ballot, and interest in the election is centered, not on him, but upon the head of the ticket Frequently a state ticket is elected on a big public issue, absolutely foreign to school Supermatters, and the result e intendent of Public Instruction goes Into office, not as a school man, but as part of a successful party ticket.

Farm Day goes to show that now things in tho ljfp of (he rural schoqls are springing ijp everywhere, and the only difficulty in using them rationally is, that the change of administration at Frankfort is putting into office a new man as Superintendent every four years, No matter how strong a school man he might be, he has no tima In which to develop school matters over a long period, and so the school and the children suffer.
