and agriculture into the course,
but the reconstruction of the
method and material of such
branches as geography, history,
arithmatic and language, with a
view to their practical application
to the life of the present. In
other words, the schools must
prepare their pupils for practical
efficiency in the ordinary voca

forefront of states making . pro
vision for the "new .education."
Educators have recognized for
years that the course of study in
the elementary and high schools
has been constructed and ad
ministered with the idea that all
children would enter institutions
of higher aducation after com
pletion of the common school
course. As a matter of fact,
less than ten per cent of the
children who finish the element
ary school enter the high school,
and less than five per cent go to
the higher institutions. 1

The city council held another
special session last night and
this ordered plans and specifica
tions for paving Jefferson street
from Third to the city limits,
the street at the rear of the
O. A. C. Armory. This action
was taken in response to a peti
tion from a majority of property
holders owning or having in
charge a majority of the foot
frontage, as follows;
J. W, Foster, E. D. Jackson,
J. M. Nolan, H. S. Pernot, A. J.

Thus is the paving idea bound
ing along at a merry rate. A
few days ago steps preliminary
to the paving of Second street
were taken and on Mondav
night a petition for the paving
of Washington street to the
Union Station was acted on fav
orably. Paving arranged for to
date reaches a total of about 30
blocks. Enthusiasts on Monroe
are circulating a petition for the
paving of that street to the city
limits, and it is confidently ex
pected that a majority of the
property owners on Madison
will send in a request. This
would make a grand total of
from 50 to 55 blocks of street
paving to be contracted this fall.
It is not expected that a great
proportion of this paving could
be done this year, but Second
street can probably be finished
and matters so arranged that
work may .begin again in the
spring. The greater, the con
tract let the cheaper the paving
can be secured. The council has
no disposition to force paving
where a majority do not want
it, but is inclined to grant all peti
tions for paving.
Hassam Man Here
A Mr. Lewis, representative
of the firm laying the Hassam
paving, was before the council
last night" On Monday night
a bitulithic "man extalled the
virtues of that sort of paving
and last night the details of

Lewis showed the method of
construction and presented

next Saturday evening.
