Th contaat Is held each year at a dif
ferent college, rotating In order pre
scribed by the constitution. Usually tha
college at which th contest I held ar
range to use Its own conservatory or
chapel for th occasion. This winter,
however, th contest will not be held at
th Cotner chapel, but at th Oliver thea
ter In Lincoln.
It Is required that the contest ba held
on or before the last Friday In February
eash year. Th committee ha fixed the
date aa Friday, February it.
Immediately preceding the contest a
business meeting will be held at the thea
ter, when each college must be repre
sented, for the purpose of electing offi
cers for the year and approving the work
of the present committee. At this meet
ing the present executive committee will
attempt to Incorporate some changes In
the present system, most Important of
which are larger money prlxes for the
winning orators and more of these prise,
probably a first, second and third.
Some desire that the contests be held
permanently in Lincoln, that city being
a somewhat central point. Thl change,
however, will not suit Crelghton or Belle
vue. The Judges, as now . selected, are: For

POPULATION OF THE SCHOOLS.
One-Fifth of the Inhabitant la the
School In 1808.
In Volume I of the report of the federal
bureau of education the commissioner says:
"Broadly speaking the educational sys
tems and Institutions of the United States,
public and private, enrolled In 1D06-7 In the
neighborhood of 19,000,000 pupil of all grades
and classes. About 20 per cent of th total
population attended the common schools for
a longer or a shorter period. This percent
age had been protty nearly stationary for
thirty years. In the meantime, however, the
average length of th common school year
had advanced from 130 days to a little over
160 days, and the percentage of those en
rolled who were on the average In actual
attendance each day of this longer school
year had advanced from 62 per, cent to 70
"While the proportion of the population
who went to school at all had not Increased
the remarkable Inorease In those attending
high schools and other schools of middle
grade still continued, reaching In that year,
190-7, about 1.13 per cent of tho whole popu
lation. In round numbers one out of every
ninety of our people was enrolled in a sec
ondary school and one out of ever 300 In a
college or other Institution of higher edu
cation. Inasmuch as an approach to these
high proportions has been going on for
many years and the length of time any one
pupil is in a school of any grade is only
a fraction of the average length of a human
life. It Is clear that the proportion of our
population who at any time had received
education of one of the grades indicated
was much higher than would appear from
the number enrolled for the year under con
sideration. "Of the total number of teachers In the
common schools of the country, about 475,
ooo In all In that year, 1906-7, less than 22H
per cent were men, and not only this per
centage, but the actual number of man
teachers had been steadily declining for
ten years or more. The average monthly
salary of both man and woman teachers In
the meantime hsd been slowly rising, yet
so slowly that it had failed to keep pace
with other expenditures for educational pur
poses. While the proportion of school mon
eys devoted to building and other 'perma
nent Improvements' had been advancing for
nearly twenty years the proportion devoted
to the personal services of teachers had
been slowly receding. In the year 1906-7
the distribution of our common school fund
was about as follows: For buildings, sites,
etc., one-fifth; for teachers' salaries, threel
fifths; for other purposes, one-fifth. The
total expenditure so distributed amounted
In the year 1906-7 to something over 1330,.
000,000. For the same year the expenditure
for education of all grades, both public and
private, in thia oountry rose to approxi

PRACTICAL TRADE SCHOOL.
Fe-tnrlee Beheet Os-eserslt la
A co-operative trade school experiment
combining the resources of seven rsctories
nnd the local schools. Is under way in
Fltchburg. Mass. It Is sold to ba th first
of Its kind in the public school of this
country. Th course Is on of four years,
th first year consisting exclusively of
school room work and th three following
years of theoretical and practical training
equally apportioned. The factory owners
say that ttir high school boys are making
betUr progress than the full-time appren
tices, and Supeilnlendent Joseph O Kl-eriy
of th Fltchburg publlo schools report
that th school room work of these boys
Is fully up to th standard.
The Fltchburg boys who toko the high
school shop work course will be able to
earn enough to clothe themselves, snd even
pay board, without Interference with their
school work, since they receive regular ap
prentice wage for the actual time they
work In the factor!. Th first year they
reoelve 10 cents an hour, and they work
approximately l.KO hours. Working th
same number of hours tha two following
years, they receive 11 and 2 cents an
hour, respectively, and they are aa well
fitted for their trade as If they had put
In all of their time In the faotory better
fitted, because of a livelier Intelligence and
ability to .Ms their heads as well as their
hand. Superintendent Edgerly says.
The shopwork consists of instruction
under practical overseer In the operation
of lathe, planers, drilling machines, bench
and floor work and such other machine
work, according to the ability of the ap
prentice, as pertains to the particular
bibt.ch of manufacture of the shop where
the boy Is employed. Of the twenty boys
v.ho entered th Fltchburg shops last Au
gust sixteen are learning the machinist's
ttade, two are receiving practical Instruc
tion In pattern making and two In drafting.
The co-operative course Includes English,
mathematics, with tables and simple shop
problems; mechanlce. Including simple ma
chines; freehand and mechanical drawing
each five periods a week, and two periods
for current events.
When the shopwork is reached In the
second year the schoolroom periods are
arranged as follows: Four each for Eng
lish, physics s.nd mechanism of machines,
five for- shop mathematics and eight for
freehand and mechanical drawing. In th
third year four periods a week are still de
voted to English and mechanism of ma
chines and five periods to shop mathemat
ics. Physics and chemistry have three
periods, commercial geography and busi
ness methods have ono period, and free
hand and mechanical drawing continue lo
have eight periods. English still has four
periods In the senior year; shop mathe
matics, mechanism of machines and free
hand and mechanical drawing ' have five
periods each; electricity and heat have four
periods, and civics and American history
are allotted two periods a week, making
what those who arranged the course con
sider a well rounded mechanical education.
The manufacturer take the boys In
pairs, so that by alternating they have
at all times one of the pairs at work. Each
Saturday at 11 o'clock the boy who hav
been In the schoolroom that week go to
the shop and ascertain what particular
iob their alternates have been employed on
and how tt has been handled, so that the
work may be taken up the following Mon
day morning without delay. In addition
to the regular school work, an "industrial
society" ho been organized for' mental
and social advancement. The society meets
each month and Is conducted by the boys
themselves. The plan is to have manu
facturer and others give talks of an In
structive nature and follow up the talks
with discussions by the members. Social
gatherings also will be held from time to
time, to which others than members will
