Many want Glebe fund used for school purposes

The Board of Supervisors has no power, as we have understood, to touch the principal of this fund; they can only dispose of the interest. This, if obtained and divided between the three districts, would help but little for building purposes. Should the Board of Supervisors feel that they could give this fund to school purposes we would, of course, be glad, and it would help us greatly, but lest they be criticized for refusing to render aid which they have no power to give we are trying to explain the matter.
