m CKADES pR SCHOOLS
Board of Education Adopts New Sys
tem for Omaha Schools.
TWO GRADUATIONS EACH YEAR
Different Arrangement as to the Time
, IV ben Kindergarten Taplls May
Untrr Vpon Their School v
A new system of grading will go Into
effect In the Omaha public schools when
the new year opens, September . Here
tofore It has always been the custom to
graduate but one class a year from the
high school and those students who finished
the required work at the end ot the first
semester were forced to wait until spring
before they could share In any graduating
exercises. A regular graduating class will
be put out. in February, this year, and
henceforth, with all the ceremony and eclat
that is allowed at the June commencement.
The schools In a great many other cities
have beon working in this way and as a re
sult a class about half the size of the
spring class Is graduated every winter.
The February class will be called the mid
year and will be given the same numerals
as the later graduates. Next yeas-there will
be a :'Mld-year class of 1911," and a "June
class of 1911."
More L'nlform System.
The principal reason tor this change Is to
provide a uniform system for all the twelve
grades that make up the school system and
to move forward all along the line twice
a year. There are always a number of
graduates from the eighth grade who moved
Into the high school at the mid-year divi
sion and to graduate must stay four and
a halt year or finish one half year
fchort. - By the change hv-the high school
a.nd another change In -the kindergarten
system, the progression h a regular one
f!rom the beginning to the end.
Some of the kindergarten teachers have
been moving their pupils twice a year, but
In many schools pupils who reached the
entrance age of 6, and have entered In
February, have been forced to remain for
a year and a half or finish up the work in
half a year. Under the new rules some
will enter and some will be graduated Into
the first grade at the end ot each term,
so that every child will serve only the
two semesters of kindergarten work.
Some misunderstanding has been caused
among the parents by the ruling that a
child can enter the Wndorgarten as soon as
it reaches the age of 5. This has led some
mothers to send their children at any tlmo
during the year as soon as the fifth birth
day Is passed. This resulted naturally In
confusion and In Inconvenience to ootn tne

Big receipts of wheat and corn, partlcu

Inasmuch as Omaha Is nearly always the

that Immense quantities should be shipped

For the week ending Saturday receipts of
corn were far ahead of those during the

THURSTON COUNTY COMPLETE
Complete official Hetaraa from the
State Pot DMhlman's Majority
at SM Otrr Governor
On the official count Mayor Dihlman'a
majority In Douglas eounty Is I.4.W. and
Cady's I.S47. The totals ave been verified
by the county canvassing board, which has
finished its work. A request has been filed
for a recount, however, on Shallenberger'e
behalf by C. J. Smyth, and the second
count will begin Wednesday.
Mayor Dahlman's majority for the whole
state Is at the final figuring 201.
In the state, exclusive of recount changes
and Douglas county. Mayor Dahlman got
30.236 votes and Shallenbcrger 26,39, which
shows how necessary to the mayor's nomi
nation was his majority In Douglas.
On the recounts, which have already been
made, the mayor has gained a few votes,
but It is poealble that these Second figures
will be refused by the secretary of state,
and Dahlman will probably get his certifi
cate of nomination In a short time. Secre
tary of State Junkln has Issued a state
ment to the effect that the requests for
recounts should have been filed after the
state board had come to 4 final conclu
sion as to who was nominated by the first
count. As It stands now, Shallenberger
has no legal knowledge that he was not
named, and until the certificate is Issued
a recount is not possible, according to the
Tharaton Coaatr Complete.
The official returns from Thurston
county, the last county to report, give Dahl
man 113 and Shallenberger 403.
The vote on BerVecker and Hewitt, for
the democratic nomination of state auditor,
is now completed. Without Douglas county
official returns show Hewitt to have 17,008
and Bernecker 16.639. Adding to these the
vote of Douglas county the total for Hewitt
is 10.206 and that ot Bernecker 19.928, mak
ing Hewitt's plurality 678.
The secretary ot state Is today comparing
the table with the abstracts sent In, but
so far has found few changes, none of
which will effect the result as published.
Victor Wilson has approximately 200 ma
jority over Ben Hayden for the populist
nomination for railway commissioner.
