Shall the state of North Carolina dictate ^o the people
of this grand old commonwealth the manner in which they
shall spend their money? Shall North Carolina set a mxi-
mum for educational'opportunity and deny the individual
school district the right to provide the best it can afford for

sembly moves toward adoption of the eight months school
measure. The Jounial-Patriot heartily indorses the bill to
give to all boys and girls of the state an eight months term
