Estimated That a School Fire
Occurs Each Day,
FACTS SHOULD BE HEEDED.

rerilout conditions prevail la school
alldlnss of fully 400 cities of this
country, according to a surrey Just
niaJa by a 0r Insurance authority. In
the published Hat. In which practically
every state in tho Union is represented.
It Is pointed out that even In the
largest and most progressive cltlos
the public authorities hare much work
to do to protect school children from
the dangers of fire' and panic. And
this notwithstanding the fact that fre
quent Inspections bare been made or
are being made and Improvements
continually ordered by those In' au
thority. An analysis of conditions surround
ing schoolhoose construction In the
United States and Canada, combined
with a scrutiny of a list of school Ores
published In Insurance Engineering,
covering the years 1911 and 1012 and
two months and a half of the present
year, Is the basis of that Journal's as
sertion that more than 250,000 school
houses In this country bave been "built
Every state In the Union and many
Canadian provinces are Included In
the investigation, which comprises
nearly 400 cities. The conclusion
reached is that most of the 20,000,000
school children and students in the
roll of cities enumerated are In con
stant peril from fire and panic because
of the fact that they are boused In
buildings that are fire traps.
Within the period and area covered
the estimated average tire fosa per
acbool fire Is placed at $25,000. In
1911 the value of school and college
buildings destroyed by fire was ap
proximately $3,000,000 A considerable
increase over this Hirnre wns recorded
in 1912, and the prediction Is made
that if something la not done tu alter
the style of construction the Ore losses
In school bulldlnzK fur 1013 will be
nearer the il.nftuxxi m.-irl;
Estimates of (lie I'.revni'.ing frequen
cy of tires In school lire as high as ten
a week, although the Incompleteness of
the reports makes It Impossible to place
the figures exactly It Is considered
safe to nay, however, that a school, col
lege or some other sort of educaUonal
building burns partially or completely
each day In a school year.
Conditions typical of those wblcltPob
tain generally have been disclosed by
investigations of the state factory in
spector in Iowa. Ills report showed
that one-half of the school buildings In
that state were totally unfit for use in
one way or another. And the investi
gators of the education department of
the Sage foundation found the same
conditions to the schools of the second
richest community in the United States.
The dangers are not confined by any
means to the public schools. On the
contrary, out of 203 fires counted in a
period of twenty-seven months nearly
GO per cent were In private schools and
Overcrowding, Insufficient ventilation,
an safe beating apparatus, combustible
construction, wooden stairways and
doors swinging Inward are given as the
principal sources of danger to school
children. The most recent menace Is
said to be the Introduction of motion
pictures In the schools.
Another indication that conditions
are to become rapidly worse Instead of
better is pointed out In the character
of the specifications for school build
lugs to be erected within the present
year. It is asserted that only 10 per
cent of these call for fireproof construc
tion. Between Jan. 1, 1913, and the
middle of March school construction
was particularly active. In all 888 cit
ies bave been named In the building
periodicals as being engaged in erect
ing schoolhouses. But In only a small
proportion of cases bave the authorities
shown any appreciation of the fact
that school buildings contribute heav
ily to fire losses and more than any oth
er class of public buildings need to be

There wns a town In Maine that
found it was constantly getting deeper
and deeper into debt, and the people
appealed to a certain man to take the
office of chairman of the board of se
lectmen, ne refused unless they would
elect blm to every other office In the
town at the same time. It was found
that It could be done under the law,
with the exception of two other select
men, and the men taking these places
agreed to buve nothing to do with the
town affairs and let the one man run
the whole thing. He took bold of the
matter, and at the end of two years,
without Increasing taxes, the town was
out of debt and had a surplus In the
treasury. Jean O. Mlchaud, the man
who did that thing, says that be ac
complished the work by "supervising
expenditures." That Is the one thing
needful in all city, county and stats
government There Is no such super
vision anywhere bow, and because
there Is not taxes are high. Onoabs

Silver Lake Leader: Eart B.
Houston, of Bend, who came In with
a load of passengers Monday evening,
says ttat things up that war point to
ward railroad building south from Bend
In the near future. The passenger
trains for the past fsw days have been
hauling an extra ooach for oflloiala of
the road, and men with timber hold
ings to the south have been on the
ground. As another evidence he says
C S. Hudson, cashier of the First
National Bank of Bend, offers a two to
one bet that railroad construction will
begin within sixty days. We are not
wanting . to see snyone lose a bet,
but tht people in this section would
like to see railroad building beaded this

ing," hss been berslded so msny times,
