Educational "Department
Conducted by County Sapf , Crocftcr
Compulsory Scliool Law.
The compulsory school law
changed by the legislature in
some of its requirements. Pu
pils between the ages of seven
and tiftcen years are not now
required to attend from the be
ginning ot the school but must )
two-thirds of the time which
any school district is compelled
loho'd ' school to draw state
money. The law has also
changed in the matter of truant
ofli-er , outside of the city dis
tricts. Tt is now the duty of
" my suoerintendenl , principal1
teacher or member of board of
education , who shall know of
any violation of this act on the
part of children of school age ,
their parents , or persons in act-
iiial or legal control of such chil
dren , shall as early as possible
report such violation to the
county superintendent who shall
immediately investigate the
case and give written notice to
parties reported as violating
i his act , and , if in one week
from the time of notice said
parties are still living in viola-
.ion of this act , then the county
superintendent shall appear in
the court of the county judge
ind lile his complaint against
such parties violating this law. "
This is published particularly
that teachers and ofticers may
{ now the changes and respon
sibilities in the matter.
The exceptions from the pro
visions of the law are as follows :
a "Where the child or youth is ,
lor a time equal to that requir
ed by this act , instructed in
some private or parochial
school. "
b "Where the child is instruct
ed at home or elsewhere by a
person quallied to give insiruc.
tion in the studies required to
be taught in the public schools. "
c "Where the child or youth
has completed the studies re
quired for a certificate of grad
uation from the eighth grade of
such schools. "
d"Where the child or youth
being fourteen (14 ( years , is of
necessity regularly employed
for his own support or for the
support of those depedent upon
him. "
e "Where the child or youth
is physically or mentally incap
acitated for the wonc done in
the school. "
f "Where the child or youth
lives more than two (2) ( ) miles
from the school by the nearest
practicable traveled road unless
free transortation is furnished
to each child.

Dippers Have Been Abolished.
i , In Lincoln's schools there is
no longer to be the trusty
dipper that used to serve as a
solace and comfort to the pupils
who were alhirst. U is the de
cree of the doctors that dippers
are disease breeders , that they
are spawning grounds of all
forms of indignant germ life ,
that they fairly teem with
diphtheria and lesser ills , and
that they are primarily and con
stantly dirty and barbarous ,
even when there is no whooping
cough or mumps in the neigh
Some weeks ago , there was
an article published in The
Star calling attention to the
system that prevailed in many
of the schools whereby pupils
were allowed to drink at tlie re
cess period , a single dipper be
ing used by all. In the haste
of thirst slaking , the youugests
seldom took the trouble to
throw away what water was left
in the dipper , dropping the
utensil with its contents back
into the bucket , to be picked up
by the next one and used. In
this way , before half the child
ren had had their turns at the
pail , the dipper and the water
was fairly alive with germs.
Examining physician * employed
by the school board have since
then taken the matter up , in
vestigated , found the condition
as bad as described , and per
emptorily ordered the dippers
The result is that drinking
during school hours is impos
sible , in many of the school
buildings. However , principals
and janitors think there is little
hardship on the pupils , consid
ering the present hours of school
and the recess periods allowed
both morning and afternoon.
The little folks are acquiring
the habit of taking a big drink
from the old oaken bucket before
they leave home in the morning ,
and allowing that to "do" until
they get home at noon.
Physicians were for a time
somewhat concerned over the
possibility of a serious siege
with diphtheria. Every pre
caution was taken to guard the
health of the school children ,
and this was one ol the evils
which appealed most strongly
to them as a possible means of
contagion.Lincoln Star.
And what is good for the Lin

A course in which lectures on
important topics of the day arc

A number of high schools in

Last week Superintendent Me-
Hrien visited the hi h schools
at Marquette , Central City , St.

Before returning to Lincoln he
called upon the county superin

conferred with several of the
high school principals of How
ard in regard to the installation
of a normal training departmenl
in the high schools. By the in
