The Caddo Herald
March 24, 1911
School district No. 5 should have another school building and The Herald suggests that not less than $25,000 be voted for the building of the same. Every citizen of the district is benefitted more or less by good schools whether or not they have children attending the schools. There is no agency that adds more to the general uplift of the community educationally, socially, morally, and otherwise than good schools; they are second only to good churches. In maintaining the good schools now, we are paving the way for a broader and more progressive citizenship in the next generation. You might have attended school in a log cabin, but don’t you want your children to have better advantages than you had, don’t you want to give them a better education than you have? If you don’t there is evidently something the matter with you and a commission should be appointed to investigate your case.
