New York, July 3. Whether "Ben
ny" and "skinuy" and millions of oth
er American school boys shall sacrifice
part of the tome at the old swimmin'
hole in learning to be soldiers, is being
discussed today by "teach." Endorse
ment of military training in public ;
schools is one of the big issues bclore
the National Education association
when into session here today. Thirty
thousand teachers are attending.
It's all in the hands of the female
of the species, too. Led by Mrs. Cora
O. Lewis, of the Kansas board of edu
cational administration, tho school
inarms control 7u' per cent of the votes
in the convention. In the first clash to
day the pacifists won out when the
text books endorsed by the American
School Peace League were adopted by
the committee on text books. All war
maps and details of battlefields arc
eliminated from the history text books
endorsed. Only the causes, spirit and
result of wars will be treated.
Business sessions of the convention
will not be held until Friday. This aft
ernoon ex-President Taft, an honorable
president of the American School Peace
league, will address the convention.
At a meeting of the national council
today means of removing politics from
teachers' pension funds were discussed.

Of greater importance than the ques
tion of the high cost of living is that
of the high cost of wasting, but of
greater importance than both of these
is the high cost of ignorance," said
David Bancroft Johnson, president of
the National bducution association, in
his address convening the general session.
The Liberty Bell
The Liberty Bell rang out ncross the
roof of old Philadelphia announcing to
the listeners that the Declaration of
Independence had been signed. Chnrles
Brocton Brown has recorded the dra
matic incident in a poem that many a
school boy orator has struggle'd with.
Andrew McJSair rang the bell when
the declaration was signed, as he had
done through the entire revolutionary
period from lioi) to lub. The iegenrt-
tells how the old man sat by the bell
in the tower of the assembly hall wait
ing for his grandson below to give him
the signnl. The poem follows:
There was a tumult in the -city,
In thequaint old Quaker town,
And the streets were rife with people
Pacing restless up and down
People gathered at the corners,
Where they whispered each to each,
And the sweat stood on their temples
With the earnestness of speech. ,
As the bleak Atlantic currents
Lash the wild Newfoundland shore,
80 they bent against the state house,
So they surged against the door.
And the mingling of their voices
Made a harmony profound,
'Till the quiet street of Chestnut
WaB all turbulent with sound.
Washington, July 3. Secretary I.ane
this afternoon issued a statement deny
ing ho favors the Phelan amendment to
the oil leasing bill now before congress
and answering recent attacks upon nun
in the matter.
"Where the warrnnt comes for such
a statement." he said, "I do not know
The only time that anything like that
ever was presented to me was when
Lieutenant Governor Eshlemnn, of Cali
fornia, brought a similar proposal to
mo. and I told him I would not stand
for it. The Phelan amendment never
has bceu referred to me by congress,
nor does any person who ever talked
with nic labor under the delusion that
I favor it.
"I am in favor of passing an oil
leasing bill, however, along the lines
of tho one passed by the house twice, in
the last two years, known as the Ferris
bill. The difference between the bins is
iu liberality of treatment of elnimantj.
"There is no danger of the navy be
ing short of oil, for there are nearly 3,
000,000 acres of public Isolds now with
drawn. Included therein are two special
naval reserves which are praciicnlly
free from adverse claims. These con
tain approximate! 130,000,000 barrels of
oil. And more of this area can be with
drawn for the navy at any time by the
president whenever he desires to do so.
"I have tried to deal with these prop
ositions without regard to polities and
have had the support of such eminent
conservatives as Mr. Lenroot and Mr.
Kent, whose views have always been
the same as niinejjthat to keep 3.000,000
acres of oil land locked up indefinite

"The only difference that has arisen
between Mr. Gregory, Mr. Daniels and

land office touching a private claim

Chicago, July 3. President Johnson

fined him as the result of Cobb 'a out
burst in yesterdar'e game with the
White Hox, when lie threw his bat in

While all solemnly inside
Sat the "Continental Congress,"
Truth and reason for their guide,
O'er a simple scroll debating
Which, .tho simple it might be,
Yet should shake the cliffs of England
With the thunders of the free.
Far aloff in that high steeple
Sat the bellninn, old and gray;
He was weary of the tyrant
And. his iron-seeptered sway,
So he sat, with one hund ready
On the clapper of ihc bell
When his eye should catch the signnl
The-loug expected news to tell.
See! See! The dense crowd quivers
Tnru all its lengthy line
As the boy beside the portal
Hastens forth to give the sign;
With his little hands uplifted,
Breezes dallying with his hair,
Hark! with deep, clear intonation
Breaks his young voice on the air.
Hushed the people '3 swelling murmur
Whilst the boy cries joyously
"Ring," he shouts, "Ring! grandpa,
Ring; oh ring for Liberty!"
Quickly at the given signal
lae old bellman lifts his hand.
Forth he sends the good news, making
Iron music thru the laud.
How they shouted! What rejoicing!
How the old bell shook the air,
Till the clang of freedom rut fled
The calmly gliding Delaware.
How the bon-fires and the torches
Lighted up the night's repose,
And from the flames, like fabled Phoe
nix, Our glorious liberty arose.
That old State House bell is silent.
Hushed now its clamorous tongue,
But the spirit it awakened,
JStill is living ever young;
And when we greet (he smiling sunlight
On the Fourth of each July,
We will ne'er forget the bellman
Who, twixt the earth and sky,
Rang out loudly, "Independence!"
Which, please God, shall never die!
