ficially that the law will be contested If
any loopholes are found In It
Since this law wan passed serial pe

English Is good, enough for Americans.
E. D. Gepson, principal of the special
school for delinquent boys, Is earnestly
opposod to the measure. Gepson comes
of a Scandinavian family, but believes the
teaching of foreign languages is "un
necessary In American schools, unless It
be Jn the high schools.' Young children
he believes should be taught the language
of the country In which they live. Holo

circular drain of the t)me of Nero. A
staircase Was found leading to a series
of five chambers, separated by arched
doorways, In which salt-water fish were
preserved and segregated according to
their size and quality. He took this to be
a Nerolan construction. A cylindrical

through an underground house, was also
found. The vault of this house had a
