Greeting: nnd Regrets.
ST. PAUL, Minn.. July 6.-"Olven a
cultivated, trained teacher of sound
mind and body, who goes to work at
peace with God and man, the school will
be the best place In the world for the
growth of the child In practical right
eousness and American citizenship.
This was the declaration of Joseph
Swain, president of Swarthmore coUege
and president of the National Education
association at the first general session of
the association's annual convention here
today. The session was devoted princi
pally to a discussion of the teacher"r re
lation to American citizenship.
Interest in the election of a president
to succeed Joseph Swain of Swarthmore,
Pa., was at a high pitch, and the cam
paigns of Dr. D. B. Johnson of Rock Hill,
S. C, and Dr. David Jordan of Leland
Stanford university were being pushed
by the candidate's respective friends.
President Swain's address followed
speeches of welcome by state and city
officials and a response by Z. X. Snyder
of Greely, Colo.
President Swain pointed out the need
of religious schools, and tho speaker de
clared that anyone taking teaching as a
life work must abandon all Idea of ac
cumulating wealth. He made a plea for
a "living wage" for the teacher; said
the best person for a position should be
chosen regardless of sex, and advocated
an old age pension system to be provided
by the states.
Teleirram from Wilson,
A telegram from President Wilson to
President Swain expressing regret that ho
could not attend the meeting was read at
the general session. President Wilson
said In part:
"Thoughtful peoplo all over the country
follow the deliberations of the National
Education association with genuine in
terest. Tho problems of education are
really problems affecting tho national
development and national ideas. I think
no one long associated with the profes
sion of teaching can have failed to catch
the Inspiration of it or to see how great
a power may be exercised through the
class room in directing the thinking and
the ambition of the generations coming
on, or can have failed to realize that
nothing less than a comprehension of the
national life is necessary to fit a teacher
for the great task of preparation and
adaptation to the future that education

The convention got well under.' "way to
day,, several .departmental -meetings, being;
held .In addition to a general session
which was 'given, over principally to a
discussion of tho teachers' relation to
Bla Rift from Carnegie.
Andrew Carnegie may contribute $100,-
000,000 to build libraries in country dis
tricts, according to an intimation thrown
out by Philander P. Claxton, United
Btatca commissioner of education, today.
Mr. Claxton said he had talked the mat
ter over with Mr. Carnegie, and although
ho had not the authority to say Mr. Car
negie will donate the sum desired the
matter was well received by the steel
Discussion of tha library question came
up at a meeting of state superintendents
at which Mr. Claxton presided. The com
missioner advocates the system of cen
tral county libraries with several branches
from each. He is confident the Carnegie
millions would result in successfully car
rying out the plan.

BIRMINGHAM, England, July 6. The
body of Joseph Chamberlain, the unionist
leader, who for many years occupied a
prominent position in British politics, was

constituency he long represented in the
House of Commons.
A memorial service was attended by
the lord mayor of Birmingham, tho mem
bers of the city councU and other digni
taries. Apart from the civic element the mourn
ers at both the church and tho cemetery
consisted solely of members of the Cham
berlain family, aa the late statesman had
expressed the desire that his funeral
should be free from everything of public
Nothing, however, could prevent a great
crowd of the citizens of Birmingham,
among whom Joseph Chamberlain was a
popular hero, from lining the rout along
which the funeral passed from the dead
statesman's residence at Highbury to the
church and from there to the cemetery.

was fond of and that his mind Is a

financial position, with property. He had
long been a suitor for the hand of Nellie
Brewer, and when he found she had ac
cepted Ralph Ford he determined she
should not marry him.
