Committee Appointed to
Study Question Concludes
The voluntary report of the committee
appointed June 8 by the high school
teachers' association to look Into the
high Echool fraternity question. Is today
In the hands of the Board of Education
for consideration, and will be taken up
by the board at Its next meeting.
During the past school year almost open
and flagrant offenses have been laid at
the door of the secret societies, and In
one instance the public reprimand of
the editorial staff of a student pub
lication was necessary.
The attitude taken by fraternities to
teachers and school interests was such
that on June 8 the teachers' associa
tion met to register a protest to the
board, and a committee was appointed
to look into the situation.
It has been estimated that there are
at least two national high school fra
ternities and several local societies in
each school among both boys and girls,
and that the fraternity interest among
certain cliques and clashes is proving
a irerlous detriment to the best effort of
the educators and schqols.
Notice has been made In past years
hv the Boaid of Education and certain
well-defined rules are read at the begin
ning of the school year iclative to the
attitude taken by the Board of Educa
tion toward the societies. More than
ever this vear have the fraternities be
come active in their attitudes to the ex
tent that the teachers' association de-i-lres
the board to take particular no
tice. Gets Prize for Essay

West. The East needs you; the West
This was the advice which Senator
Miles Polndexter gave the members of
the graduating class of Eastern High
School at the commencement exercises
In the Columbia Theater yesterday
"Western territory is now well set
led," said the Senator. "The people of
the East must develop their own terri
tory, and not rely entirely upon the
West for their food supply. Through
Virginia, Maryland, and other Eastern
States farms are being deserted, large
tracts of land remain uncultivated, and
people are poor because they have not
learned to cultivate properly."
Senator Polndexter also criticised the
people of the District of Columbia for
not taking advantage of the water
power of the Potomac. At Great Falls,
he said, a vast amount of power is
beinc wasted, which could easily be
utilized for the benefit of the people
of the surrounding country.

was dropped In boxes In the different
