TELLS WHY AGAINST
Member Woodland of Omaha Board
Asserts Training Department
OPPOSITION TO ABOLISHMENT
Interest in the contemplated decapi
tation of the teachers' training
choot, decreed In secret session by
the teacbera' committee, contlnaea to
crow. Judged by the protests coming
In, although the majority of the
committee express their determina
tion to loalst on adoption of their
recommendation at the next board
meeting. Asked for the reasons for
tie proposed change, Member frank
U. Woodland, who roted with the
majority In the aUr chamber com
mittee meeting, has given The Bee
the following statement:
"My reasons for favoring the dlscon
ttnuaace of the training school, briefly
"The training school la entirely unneces
sary and consequently a useless expense.
There are mora experienced teachera with
college or . normal school education
anxious to eecure positions In the Omaha
choola each year, than there are vacan
cies. . The auperlorlty of such teachers
over graduatea of our training achool baa
always been recognised by the board,
judging from tha fact that they are paid
a higher salary when elected than wa
, pay graduatea of tha training achool.
The policy of tha board, aa Indicated by
its rules, which have been In force for
years, has been to aelect as teachera only
thoee who have graduated from a col
lege or state normal school, and those
with only a high aohool education are
. distinctly recognised exceptions to tha
general rile, and graduates of the train
ing' schools are expressly Included In
swti exceptions. .4
Wars Tralalag- taa Efficient.
"In the next plane, the theoretical
raining received by members . of the
training school ran . not be compared
with that of graduates of tha state nor
mals. In the nature of thlnga thla Is
obviously Impossible, for but ona day a
week Is devoted to Instruction. Tha ether
fear days of tha school week the students
are In the various schools, observing or
assisting teachers In their classroom work,
consequently the training achool la giv
ing not more than per cent of the
Instruction and study secured by college
and normal school students, whatever
aueeeae, therefore, has attended the work
of graduates of our training achool rmist
be ascribed largely to their natural abil
ities and In spite of their Insufficient
, "The discontinuance of the training'
school would be for the best Interests of
those who would otherwise become mam.
trs of It. There can be no question but
hat the guarantee ef employment held
out to those who enter the training
arhool has deterred most If not all el
U.em from securing a higher education
anl operated as an Inducement to many
fherwlae able to continue their educ.
l on to stop with the high school. The
i vgestton that graduates of the train
." school are those who can not aford
t get their training elsewhere is net
iranted by the facte. Quite ae little

Retailers to Ask
City to Stop Fake
How to check the practice of fakirs of
advertising bankrupt sales on the prin
cipal streets of Omaha when no bank
ruptcy has artually occurred, la still a
problem that retailers are working on.
Information la being gathered from cities
that have eliminated this decoptlon. , The
Associated Retailers have letters from the
associations of Denver and Minneapolis
telling how the matter Is handled there.
In Minneapolis there is a city ordinance
that prohibits such fake sales and flar
ing advertisements on several of the prin
In Denver It Is different. There la no
ordinance covering the point there, but
the city council arbitrarily prohibits such
practices on certain of the principal
streets. The retailers there circulated a
petition, got an overwhelming number
of signatures, and presented It to the
city council requesting such action.
The Associated Retailers of Omaha will
take thla matter up with the dty coun
cil here. An erfort will be made to have
the council oonalder an ordinance on thla
point aa soon as poaathlo. but at anv rat
after tha flrat fall meeting of the Aa-
sociated Retailers, which is to be held

CORN IMPROVES IN
Burlinrton'i Crop Report Showi
Corn at McCook and Wymore
in Exceptional Condition.
WHEAT CBOP AVERAGES GOOD
While rains, according to the Burl
ington's weekly crop report, were
general over Nebraska last week,
they were not unusually heavy ex
cept In the eastern part of the state
Elsewhere It is asserted that they
were Just about sufficient to keep
crops growing rapidly. In the east
ern portion of the state they were
torrential In some localities. For In
stance, at Fremont the precipitation
reached 8.17 Inches; Plattsmoutb
had 3.65; Nebraska City, 2.86; Table
Rock, 4; Bjrrarase, 2.06, and many
other places one and -one-half to two
As a result of the heavy rains, accord
ing to the report, in the eastern portion
of the state, corn conditions went back,
while elsewhere there wna an Improva
n ent. The condition of corn over all

Fallr t'p ta the A vera are.
The opinion Is expressed that unless
there should he an unusually early frost,
the com crop as a whole will be fully up
to the average and that If there should
not be a. killing frost 'before the middle
to tha last of September, It wilt be un
precedented In the history of the atate.
Dealing with wheat the report shows
that thla year farmers are stacking more
than ever before and that threshing out
of tha shock Is not tha rule. As a re
sult leas threshing has been done than
during former years, but whatever farm
era have threshed, the wheat has turned
out well. Twelve of the Bui-llngton
agents, reporting from that number of
Automobile owners all over the world write us that
they are obtaining from "Nobby Tread" Tires twice
the mileage they could get from other tires.
We absolutely know this to be true of the great
majority of "Nobbv Tread" users, because although1
the "Nobby Tread 'mileage adjustment is based upon
5,000 miles to the tire, "Nobby Tread" users all over
the world are securing averages of
8,000 Mies ,
Thi, supreme real anti-skid tire properly inflated
is constantly giving tremendous excess mileages over
and above its extraordinary adjustment basis of
We want to find and consult with any "Nobby
Tread " users who are not securing excess mileage
are today the largest selling high-grade anti-skid
tires in the world.

that In the localities where they reside,

buehela to the acre.
What maintains with wheat holds true
In the matter of onta. Where threshing
has been done, agents s inert that the
aver litre yield Is around forty bushels per
While potatoes are plentiful, the quality
Is reported below the average on account
of too much wet weather.
Alexander Hampton, traveling paa
enger agent for the Northwestern, work
ing the territory north of the Platte, Is In
the city and speaking of cropa through
the north half of Nebraska, asserts:
'There has never been anything like It
during my twenty fears' residence In Ne
braska. Wheat la turning out twenty
five to thirty bushela per acre, and tha
quality Is good, there having been leas
rain than farther south. Corn gives
promise of the best crop the farmers have
ever raised. The acreage is large and by
the middle of September the entire crop
will be beyond the possibility of any frost
damage. Much of It will be out of the
way by September 10. Right now much of
the corn has passed beyond the roasting
