The Public Drinking
Regardless of tho construction
drinkplaced on tho
ing cup law by tho Attorney General of Kentucky, Superintenanti-publ-
dent of Public Instruction Barks-dal- e
Hamlett Monday announced
that ho would have the law enforced in all schools.
The public fails to see any
gcod reason for withholding the
sanitary benefit of the drinking
cup law from tho public schools.
It should ho strictly enforced
there, above all other places.
Most people havo seen how
drinking water is done in tho
public schools, and they know
tho way the common drinking
vessel is passed from mouth to
mouth, regardless of dirt and
disease, is far from being a sanU
tary or wholesome procedure.
Tho News would go further in
this matter and say that tho water receptacle should be a closed
vessel with a spigot or faucet.
If pupils arc permitted to dip
their individual cups into tho water then the intention of tho law
is almost wholly lost.
The matter is to bo taken to
tho court of appeals, and pending
its action the teacher of every
public school in tho commonwealth should strictly enforce
the law as it now stands, and
the teacher who fails in this regard is derelict in his duty to his
pupils and a violator of tho law.
