' R AI in A< KERI v Yorktown Heights , Dec 8, 1908. ' Tap above eonimunn ation relates ,to.a subject vital to every well or­ dered community, and one each dis­ trict or village* will have to settle VVe do not see now J'resident Hoofe- velt or the commission referred to can remedy mutters very materially. The department of education of tlie state of New York has practicully made it possible for every boy or girl, so desiring; to receive a bigh school education free of cost or at WT Kttle expense. The state can and does pay the tuition of non-resi­ dent ftigh school students, as is evi- d«*wd m our own district. Free tui­ tion it afforded all high school pupils who have received their preliminary Regents certificate, the state reim­ bursing tbe district. We do not see why the school in question should not do the Bame, as the district loses nothing' financially and tbe school would gain in scholars and repu­ tation. There should be—and we believe it is the aim of our state department— a high school in each township, free to all scholars in tbe town. No one in­ stitution helps a village more than the standard .if its school, and we would recommeni! the village of Yorktown Heights to investigate this mat ter, assuming Ralph Ackerly's complaint to be justified, and tp see what might be done for the boys and girls of that town in the way of providing for their higher education. It is surely much cheaper to educate them at home than to send them away We do not presume to instruct the au­ thorities of Yorktown Heights, which w, .a-u ^atotsrigina .village, r<?pr>g- mz&d to be an up-to-date and pro­ gressive community, but why not puy a little larger tax and keep the boys mid girls Ht home just at the time when home influences are mo8t needed? There m no more efficient way to promote the welfare and stimulate the growth of a community than by providing the very best educational advantages possible. The higher the grade of the school, the more rjnickl.y will the village grow For instance, take our own village and school as a proof Hardly more than five years ngo, we hudasilujol employing three teachers., with less than a hundred pupils und doing barply two years' high school work With the building of the Muscoot and Cross KiveJ damscame nn influx of new pupils sufficient to crowd the capacity of the school, and so finally our new school building was erected nt a cost, inclnding the hint], of about $:!4, OOO This, wit h its nine < lassroorns uud large Hfwmbly hull, seeme d like a l .ir »e provision for mativ wars t.i c 111111 1 pat 11< ulnrly. as. at the nun j. let inn nf the two dams mentioned, a large number of familieM moved a n'llV . hill t <u J< 1 V n e hav e Faculty oT etjriit r 'Ni -ell<-nf N-HI- I I- rr*. a si lino) of over tun hundred pupil\ doing a lull loin MM is\ Inch schoo l emirsp—aM wit h .n <uupiiru tive 1\ small raiM-111 1M\ 1.-111 • There nlv ali'Mjt rifl v.
