the postoffloa controversy which was
carried on for so long before the matter
was settled by the appointment of Mr.

Bryan, as against A. V. Johnson, who
was backed by Congressman Magutra.
Already the work Is being started
quietly snd a few aspiring candidates are
getting ready in an effort to get both the
endorsement of Mr. Bryan and Senator
Hitchcock, which has heen shown to be
a very difficult propoaitlon to far.
It is expected that Sam Whiting, can

these girls wash at the high school?"
What Other Member Think.
On the subject of laundering at the
high school members of the board made
these statements for public consumption:
D. E. Jenklnsi I might explain that
the purpose is to teach the girls how to
wash and also how to iron. This Is a
belated feature of th household econ
omics department of th high school. Tha
girls will wash the high school towels,
and other articles."
W. A. Foster: "To teach girls how
to wash Is to teach them how to handle
an important department of their pros
Superintendent Graff: "This la greatly
to be desired. Laundering, cooking and
sewing should be extended to the grade
schools. There Is an educational validity
in this work."
Miss Mary Mcintosh of the high school
faculty Is now taking a special course
In laundering at Columbia university and
will have charge of this new feature at
the high school, beginning In September.
Would Revise Rales.
Mr. Jenkins secured the adoption of a
revolution directing the Judiciary and
teachers' committee to revise th rules
of the board. On this subject, Mr. Jen
kins said: "I believ th rule that tha
high school teachers should teach five
hour a day should be changed to require
these teachers to spend at least seven
hours a dsy at this school. Many chll-
ren spend considerable time In the after
noons at picture shows and soda foun
tains when they should be engaged in
supervised study. They need thes hours,
particularly during the two first years
of high school life. I also contend that
the rules relating to eligibility of teach
ers should b amended. It is a question
whether th product of our teachers'
training department is depriving us of
th services of other teaohers who com
her well equipped to teach. Our teaoh
ers training school certificate do not
meet th - state requirements. Bom
teachers who have splendid experience
and ability ar subjected to examinations
for our high school, while others, less
qualified, get in without such examina
tions, I understand."
