rnittee roported in favor of making no
change, and in fact Mr. Stern was the
only one who- favored It.' He prepared
and submitted a minority report, recom
mending' the shortening of the hours of
the pupils in the first two years, but
consented to an amendment providing
for a change In the first year only. This
was adopted. The abolition of these use
less studies will so shorten the school
hour that two sets of half-day scholars
can be accommodated.
Commissioner Adams, who supported
the resolution, said the public school sys
tem In this city was not as good as it
was ten years ago.
"I was horrified a short time ago," he
said, "to learn the real condition of
affairs. Boys and girls who applied for
positions as clerks could neither read nor
spell. My investigations convince me that
the instruction of pupils in essential
studies is sadly neglected."
Mr. Maxwell loudly protested against
any change being made in his own pe
culiar course of studies, but was over
ruled. However, after the flrst year pu
pils will be compelled to sew and cook,
and wash extra hard to make up for
the time they have lost through the ef
forts of reformers like Mr. Stern, and
Mr. Maxwell will see that they do it.
For he is determined that the rising gen
eration of Greater New York shall be the
best cooks in America.

NEW CANDIDATE IN THE HELD
XBW YORK, April 5. (Special.) A
mighty watt of protest If arising from
rarents throughout Greater New York.
Thry do net -like the way the schools are
ondulcd, and an active crusade is under
way to dispose of City Superintendent
"William J. Maxwell, or at least to in
duce him to drop some of the astonishing
t! Jigs he has grafted upon the public

Mr. Maxwell is essentially a man of
'al3 and fancies and parents who were

system rub their eyes when the younger
generation tell how they have passed their

know how to make an oyster stew."
"I do not like to wash aprons, but

"Mother, have you got any animal I
can take to school. We've all got to do
These three sample remarks are not
rom a joke book, but were actually made

illustrate some of the fads which Mr.
Maxwell thinks are necessary for child

Taught to Make Oyster gtew.
Thp studies in plain and fancy cooking
would be funny were it not for the fact
that they are dangerous. This fad started
because somebody suggested to Mr. Max
well that conditions in the tenements
would be improved if the children were
taught to cook. Mr. Maxwell agreed, but
instead of limiting it to the schools in
the slums, adopted it for the entire city,
and the children of the well-to-do are
rompelled to take up this study to the
detriment of mathematics and the scl
Three times a week cooking classes are
held. The pupils are divided into two
equally-sized sections. The first half
vooks (for Rome unexplained reason it
generally makes 05'ster stew) and when

happy second half of the class ir com

With a desire to be perfectly fair and

tunity to acquire dyspepsia, at the next

remain to eat, while the former guests
perform as cooks.
Infants Learn Washing. '
New York public school children are
also expert in the matter of plain wash
ing, a valuable gift for the well-to-do.
Several times a weok the teacher picks
out the little girl with the dirtiest apron
In. the class and as a reward of merit
assigns the neatest girl to wash it. Being
selected as the laundress Is regarded as
a great honor, although many parents
ere so old-fashioned that they cannot
see it, and have even been known to
protest to the teachers.
But what Is the use? The teachers do
rot dare to go contrary to the rulings
' Mr. Maxwell, for he Is the Czar pf
thp Pedagogues, and happier than the
Russian Czar, for nobody has yet decided
to throw real bombs at him.
The pupils of a fashionable school on
the Upper West Side have greaduated
from aprons and are now taking a post
graduate course in handkerchiefs.
Pet Animals Taken to School.
Natural history classes are another feat

owners to the schoolrooms and many

Perhaps Mr. Maxwell does not realize
it, but he has simply takon a leaf out
of the. school book of a pedagogue who
f ourished many years ago one Wackford
Siueers. He, it will be remembered, aided
Ms pupils in the study of a horse by al
lowing them to curry him down. The
Maxwell theory is based on ' much the
same principle but still the parents are
not grateful. In fact some of them are
Can't Pass for Office Boy.
They point to the fact that at a recent
examination for office boy in the city's
service, which is protected by civil ser
vice rules, of 40 grammar school boys
who took the test, 28 failed to -pass. And
the hardship was that the youngsters
knew all about how to cook, wash and
iron, pick daisies and discourse learnedly
about hyglone. But they were not able
tj pass the simplest kind of -an examin
ation in reading, writing and arithmetic.
The storm of complaints has had but
Uie effect upon, the members of "the
Board of Education, who have been
among the warmest of the Superintend
tnts supporters. Commissioner Abra
ham Stern, who fought him practically
siugle-handod, has finally been able to
' gain a partial concession. The Board
has solemnly decided that during the flrst
year, grammar school pupils- need not
study these subjects:
Sewing, physical training, organized
games, physiology, study of hygiene and

were regarded as useless, but to relievo

Wallace Learns of Appointment
Sea-Level Canal Simple.
NEW YORK, April 5. Chief Engineer
Wallace, of the Panama Canal Commis
sion, first learned of his appointment on
the new Commission upon his arrival here
todav on the steamer Finance, from
I read in a newspaper brought by the
pilot that I had been appointed on the
new Commission," said Mr. Wallace, "but
know nothintr of the particulars. Of
course. I knew something of my appoint
ment, as the rdatter was discussed with
Secretary Taft when he visited the Isth
mus last December. Everything is quiet
in the Canal Zone, and I know of nothing
new there. '
Speaking of the difficulties of building
the canal. Mr. Wallace said:
"It is surprising what wrong impres
sions prevail in this country about the
canal. The control of the Cbagres itiver.
for instance, has been much misunder
stood. The cost of this work, will be
onlv 5 per cent of the total cost of build
lng the canal. The difference in tide be
tween the Pacific and Caribbean Sea can
be controlled by tide locks, although this
is not necessary with a sea level canal.
The tide in the Pacific rises 10 feet higher
and falls 10 .feet lower than it does in the
Caribbean. The canal, however, will be
47 miles long, and will take up this dif
ference. We do not place locks at Sandy
Hook to control tide into the Hudson,
and that river Is always navigable. So
will the canal be navigable at all times.
I will go immediately to Washington."

New York Orders Detailed Report on
NEW YORK, April 5. Circulars to the
number of 6000 have been ordered by. the
Health Department to be served on all
physicians and institutions in 'New York,
ordering reports made of every case of
cerebro spinal meningitis. This must be
done by the doctors and hospital authori
ties under the penalty prescribed in the
sanitary code, and marks a. drastic step
by the Health Board in combatting the
disease which has caused 793 deaths in
Greater New York since January 1- Un
der the new policy each case will be dis
infected, and If ieed be, isolated.
As yet no one has been able to reveal
the Identity of the meningitis germ.
Two facts which the Investigators con
sider of importance have, however, come
to light. It has been found by laboratory
experiments, that there is a variation be
tween the typo of so-called germs in this
epidemic and the hitherto supposed nor
mal type of meningitis germ. The second
discovery is that all the ordinary animals
used in laboratory work are immune to
the meningitis germs.
