To be a member of a board of education in a local community is one of the greatest responsibilities any citizen can receive. It offers an op- portunity for outstanding and constructive public service. It requires unselfish and intelligent devotion for the common good of all, A local school board is almost the last bulwark marking community control over its own affairs. These days are of unusual significance to schools and therefore to their policy makers---school boards. The increasing number of young people who want and need formal education, and the constantly expanding program of the school, make it more difficult to find money for plants, personnel, and equipment. These considerations make the work of the school board more difficult and of the utmost importance. Some one has aptly said of the qualities school board members need: 'Knowledge alone is not enough. In addition the public expects of him the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job, the meekness of Moses, the hu- mility of a burned out electric bulb, the sagacity of Henry Ford, the initiative of a jet propelled plane, and the common sense of Lincoln!n To participate effectively in school policy-making also requires understanding judicial competence, vision, courage, sincerity, unselfish- ness, common sense and teamwork. The business of education is one of the largest in many communities, More actual funds are involved, much of the tax money is expended, and more of the public's interest is, or should be, concentrated upon this important nindustryn. In order that the best educational conditions mioht be attained board members have laid aside personal feelings and opinions and have worked with a vision of what their positions really mean in the success of the school and the future of the children. And the results have been com- mendable and without doubt worthy of public recognition. They generally sacrifice valuable time and personal comforts without compensation in order to be of service. Indeed often the are obli ed to see their best Y S most conscientious efforts criticized adversely, harshly and unjustly by the unthinking public whom they so faithfully serve! But they have become sworn servants of that same public and often expect such remuneration! In short, school board members have evolved a wholesome, intelligent manner of administration, commensurate with the inherent responsibilities of their positions. Our debt to them is great: let us be thankful that it is. They also serve, worthy of recognition! S
