STATE SCHOOL CENSUS
Figures Give New Ha
23,438 School Children.
The result of the state school enu
meration for 1907 was announced to
the board of education last night, so
far as New Haven is concerned. This
is the census on which the state ap
portions to each town its school allow
ance for the year, $2.25 bc-ing con
tributed out of the state treasury for
each child enrolled. The enumera
tion shows 20,799 in public schools,
which is an Increase of 828 over last
year, and 2,639 in private schools, an
increase of 70, making 23,438 in school
in this district and 4,367 not in school,
but between the ages of four and six
Of those not attending school 1,801
are under the age "of five and 1,530 are
between fourteen and sixteen. As
fourteen is the limit of compulsory at
tendance, this accounts largely for the
total at this age out of school. Be
tween seven and fourteen, the compul
sory ages, there are only 183 reported
out of school.
Of the total children between four
and sixteen there are reported employ
ed at labor 1,205.

applicants in the retfnt examinations
for the police aaptaincy, the civil ser

The reaeoh stated wag thit, while the
marking of the mental examinations
had been completed by the board, the
physical examinations were still to be
held and until these had been taken
and the results given to the board it
would be impossible to announc who

physical examinations will be reported
to the board at another meeting, which
has been set for next Monday evening.
The physical tests, which are given by
Dr., Beaver, of the Yale gymnasium,
have not been appointed yet, but cards
will be sent out probably to-tlay to

throughout the city which was voted to
go into effect next September in ac
cordance with a resolution of Mr, Mo

go into operation at all. When the
finance committee of the board of ed
ucation went over the amount of money
appropriated for the purpose of ap
portioning1 it for the needs of the de
partment, which Is the function of that
committee, it diflopvered that the
amount of $5,948 which was asked later
by the board for the proposed Increase
had been shaved down to $3,918, cutting
out $2,000 of the projected sum for the
increase. In figuring the Increase the
education board had asked for the sum
of $5,91S, figuring that it could save
$6,000 in the course of the yer from
sundry savings in the salary aocount.
The board of finance plaoed the saving
at $8,000 which aeoounts for the de
crease of the account $2,000. The coml
mittee states tht it placed the saving1
as high as possible and that $8,009 is
out of the question. A vote was taken
by the board which will be sent to the
board of finance announcing that un

under suspicion of being implicated in
the burglaries committed recently
about the center of the city. They

In attempting to save herself she put
