TEXAS FATHERS T.Am ONLY
Colonel T. H. Ball Favors Educa-
tional Amendment in Address Be-
fore City Teaoheri Institute.
While the fathers of Texas did much in
providing for public education the work
they begun haa not yet been completed
waa the declaration of Thomas H. Ball
addressing the city teachera in their in-
stitute at the High school yesterday. Ha
gave earnest Indorsement to the educa-
tional amendment to be voted on at the
approaching general election
"I yield to no man In my admiration for
the fathers who laid the foundation of
the magnificent public school systsm
which we enjoy In Texas." said Mr. Ball.
"However they were human and they
made some mistakes. It remains for us
their descendants to perfect the vast
system which they begun. One means of
ferfectlng this is being offered to us now J
n the constitutional amendment which '
Is to be voted on at the next general tlec- '
tion. By some strange misfit our fatiiera
through the constitution permitted the
country p-ople to levy only -u cents of
tax on tho J100 to support their schools
and that only by two-thirds majority;
while tho people In the cities are permitted
to tax themselves 60 cents on the $100 for
maintenance of schools and 25 cents for
buildings if they so desire. This is un-
just discrimnution against the country
children of the Hlate. The result haa been
that hundreds of people have had to move
away from the farms to the cities in trudr
determination that thetr children should
have the best school advantages attain-
able This condition will never be helped
until we make it iosslblH for the country
districts to spend as much money on their
schools. If thry so desire as the city peo-
ple can I am for the proposed amend-
ment and expect not only to vote for It
hut to work for It. It does not raise any
tax. It leaves the power still In the
hands of the people; but it gives the
country people the right to spend as
much of their own money for thetr own
schools as It gives the city people."
Mr. Rail discussed the subject. "The
Pi oblem of Education as Seen from a
Lawyer s Htandiolnt-' and his treatment
of the subject was largely from the view-
point of historic development. He showed
that In a despotism there Is perhaps the
no need for education at all. as the only
duty of the subject Is to obey the rjler.
In a limited monarchy the need for educa-
tion is greater as more Is expected of
the citizen. In a democracy the cltlsen
Is the sovereign and here the need for
common education Is Imperative.
Superintendent Horn presided at the
meeting and the following teachers ap-
peared on the program: Miss Marjorle
Oay of the Rusk school. J. Boone of
the Lubbock school and W. F- Wilson of
the Austin school
A number of visitors were present In
addition to tho teachers and th affair
was interesting throughout and enjoyed.
