Printed la a separate volume
irons the other subjects, the new
course f study in English for
Oregon .high schools has been pub
lished and is being mailed put to
city and county superintendents
throughout the state. The course
was prepared under, the direction
ot the state department of educa
tions ' -.
Persons who assisted in pre
paring the -course of study were
Mrs. Margaret Goodall. head of
the English department, or the
university high school at Eugene;
Miss Winifred Graham of Marsh
field, Miss Ada V. Ross of Salem,
Miss Laude M. Mochel of Wood
fcurn and Dr. M. Elwood Smith of
"the Oregon Agricultural College.
" The other high school courses,
bound la, one volume, will be
ready .for distribution within the
nextf 1 days. .-
"''.In most .subjects the new high
school ' course is little different
ftom the one in use during the
last four years. The. work in one
"or two subjects has. been thor-
jOUghly revised, and provision has
teen made tot, the recall of cer
tain,! desirable,', skills acquired in
".the, elementary, grades but fre-
ciuentljf, lost through" .disuse dur
ing the high school period. Drill
In spelling, has been made -a de
finite par J of the work in English.
r;t Every department, is made res
ponsible for orderliness and legi
bility in written productions. For-
iaal classes in spelling and pen
manship are advised for high
. school students who cannot other
wise be brought up to an accept
able standard. .
'Tests I have seen reported as
welt as those I have condcted
show that high school seniors
T write and spell somewhat better
than high school freshmen," said
C, A. Howard, state suberintend
. "Their , accomplishments in
. these regards, ought to be very
' much better. Through the opera
tion, ot this course of study we
hope to approach in all our high
schools, the results now being se
cured in the best of them."
. Another feature of the new
' course of study is the inclusion of
I a half-year of reviews in arithme
tic and geography which is recom
mended; as a required course tor
all seniors except those who have
takes higher arithmetic and high
school, geography as a part of
their regular work.
"Most. young people just out of
the high school flounder badly in
handling ordinary business calcu
lations.", said Mr. Howard. "This
la because they have not handled
auch calculations for a period of
four years.' It is the purpose pjf
this, .course to whet up arithmetic
skills" that have grown dull
through disuse; I am confident
that for most :- students, these
'ektlls'can be brought to a keen
edge . In. .& comparatively brief
The review course provides for
thorough and persistent drill both
for.; speed and accuracy in the
fundamental operations of addi
tion: subtraction, multiplication
'and division. Common and de-
'-. clmal ' fractions, measurements,
percentage and business applica-
' tlons are, thoroughly Reviewed.

VPopnlaf demand has -a great
deal to do with calling attention
to need of emphasis , on certain
phases " of school work involved
In ; these revisions," ; said Mr.
Howard. "But' this is one of the
situations where popular, demand

be ! in accord, for thq national
