State Superintendent Fowler Advocatei
Longer Terms for Superintendents.
THREE-YEAR CONTRACTS ADVISABLE
John n. Macfarland, for Tears a

Diva ait Lou Aacrln,
. (From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, April 10. (Special.) Super
intendent Fowler declare that be It in
favor of longer terms for district acboot
superintendents throughout the state. He
"The election of a superintendent for a
term of three year tends to make the pro
fession of teaching more desirable, because
less precarious, and therefore retains in
the profession the services of the most
competent perrons, and In my opinion the
legislature very wisely left the matter to
the sound discretion of the bosrd. It
may be urged that In some instances the
authority to employ's superintendent for
two or three yesrs may be used to forestall
the action of tbe newly elected members
or .to defeat the will of tbe people, but
since only one-tbird of tbe members go
out at a time, the danger Is not very great
when compared with the advantages.
Every power Vested In public officials Is
liable to. abuse. Official Integrity of pub
lic officers Is properly presumed. A desire
on their part for the prosperity of the
schools whose affairs they manage and a
proper regard fur the rights and opinions
of the Incoming members of the board can
In most cases be relied upon with confi
dence." Dentil of Old rtealdeats.

Yearn and Lands Work of
NEW YORK. April 10. Alberto Santos
Dumont, builder and navigator of airships,
arrived here today on the steamship
Deubschland. He has come to the United
States to discuss plans for an exhibition of
aerial navigation with tbe managers of tbe
St. Louis exposition and will be In the
country for three weeks.
Engagements In England during the coro
nation of King Edward require that he re
eross the Atlantic by that time, but It the
necessary arrangements can be made he
will return here In July or August for
either a race with a rival or an exhibition.
That he might be prepared for a visit
this summer, he has shipped his latest
built airship No. 7 to thle country, and
will have It made ready for use. He will
do no flying during the present visit to the
Tbe youag aerlallst was accompanied by
Manuel Alme, former secretary of tbe Aero
club ot Paris, and Albert Chapln, a ma
chinist expert la airship mechanism. Ban-tos-Dumont
will remain In New York tor
five days before going to St. Louis.
"I hope to see New York the principal
air port of the world before I pass away,"
said he, "I have no doubt but that In mv
time, perhaps ten years. It I get the proper
encouragement and help, aerial navigation
will bo an accomplished fact. I have no
doubt but that I will live to see passen
gers transported by airship across the At
lantic from New York to Paris.
"I have not patented my airship In this
country and I do not Intend to. I want
other men to take my ideas and Improve
on them If they can. If the St. Louis ex
position takes place next year. It Is pos
sible that nobody but myself would be
ready to enter a race ot alrsbjps, but If It
takes place two years from now, I am
sure there would be other entrlea. I have
great hope for the future ot the airship.

here in the United States and your pro
fessor, S. P. Langely, Is one of the great

too, In which It should be taksn up."
