BOYS BEST AT 10 4. M. 4ND WOEST AT 4 F. M.
Boston, Feb. 5. .Frank B. Lakey, a teacher in the English high school,
has just announced the results of his investigations of boys. He says that '
boys are at their best at 10 a. m. and at their worst at 4 in the afternoon.
There are few men in this day and age who deserve the unstinted and
unanimous praise that has been given Henry Ford, the automobile maker
who is sharing his profits with the men who made them. He has told why
he has adopted that plan and hundreds have commented and discoursed on
its possible effect on his business, his men and his competitors.
There is one feature in the remarkable and unusual decision and action
of Ford, however, that may have been overlooked. Should he die, what
would his direct heir do? Many men who have piled up dollars and dollars
have sons who are helping them spend it and Ford has a son. You
wouldn't have known it by the statement he made when he first announced
his "big scheme." He said:. "Why should I want to accumulate a big es
tate? I have nobody to leave it to."
As a matter of fact he has a son, but what he means" by saying that he
has no one to whom to bequeath a great fortune is that the only heir he has
is working and has been brought up to work hard for a living and is now
engaged in doing so. That Ford prefers not to rob his next generation of
the incentive of self-dependence is one more feather in his cap.

H! TEACHERS GET INCREASE
The Board of Education yesterday
passed Mrs. Ella Fiagg Young's rec
ommendation for a six-hour day for
high school teachers with a 10 per
cent increase in salary.
The meeting was featured by a
long flow of oratory from John J.
Sonsteby, who tried to defeat the
recommendation by asserting that a
man high school teacher had told
him that the teachers didn't want the
increase if they had to work an extra
hour to get it.
