For this purpose secure a box four
feet long, two feet wide and 20 Inches
deop; placo on the bottom a strata
of any kind of soil, four inches in
depth, as a baso. Cover this with a
layer of barnyard fertilizer four
inches deep, above this a strata of
dark sandy loam, four inches deep.
Lay the top surface off in rows 4
Inches apart and one inch deep. Let
this stand 12 hours before planting
tho seed. Meanwhile, the seed are
soaking in sweet milk for 24 hou
for the purpose of rapid germination
and the production of stocky plants,
each of which is induced by the pro
tein of the milk.
Whon the time for soaking ls ex
hausted, drain tho milk from the
Bood and stir in a sufficiency of soil

If self-blanching celery seed are

PRESENT METHODS CONDEMNED
In Atlant? School System-?Want to
Return to Sonto Abandoned.
Madison, March 10, 1922.
Editor Koowco Courier:
Enclosed please find a clipping
from the Atlanta Constitution on
tho educational methods of the city
of Atlanta, if you can find space for
it next weok. will you please publish
?it in your paper?
Yours truly, j. A. Cook.
Wants Changes in Methods.
Scoring tho present modem melli?
'od of education in Atlanta's public
schools, which he declared is a "pan
<oramic" systom, educating the eye
.instead of the mind, School Commis
.alonor Carl H. Hutchoson will intro
duce at tho board of education's next
meeting a resolution urging a return
to tho old method.
Ho will call on tho board to abol
ish tho visualized system of reading
and require tho alphabet to be
Aaught; bring back tho old-tlmo dla
graining in grammar; reinstate the
old method of syllabic pronunciation
of words in spoiling, and instruct the
superintendent to dlreot that teach
ers lay special emphasis on" instruc
tions in reading, spelling and mathe
matics. He asks that the plan be
come effective with the beginning of
the now term in September.
Mr. Hutcheson asserts that the
"visualized plan of reading educates
tho eye and not tho mind, and is a
panoramic method which tonds to
Hit and flip objects before tho view
at lightning speed, fails to develop
the mind psychologically and philo
sophically, and tends to destroy the
fundamental basis of elemontary ed
Business mon of Atlanta, ho sr id.
are complaining that employees who
aro educated In the Atlanta schools
cannot spell properly.
"This resolution is not simply uy
own idea," stated Mr. Hutcheson;
"some of tho oldest and most effi
cient teachers in the system are de
ploring the decadence of the so-cull
ed modern methods, and waut tx re
turn to education that will stick in
"Tho way our young children are
being taught is not educating them.
They do not learn the alphabet. They
begin to read with the aid of pic
tures. Cover up <ho pictures and of
tentimes they can't read tho text at
"Then this sight reading ls de
stroying the art of spelling, one of
the most valuable accomplishments
a child can acquire. The 43,000 pu
pils of the public schools need to be
taught to spell thoroughly, know the
wodrs and what the words moan as
they read them."
Mr. Hutcheson Is also the author
of a pending resolution to reduce the
number of text hooks in the gram
mar school grades.
He introduced a resolution which
ls also pending, providing for the
elimination of several supervisors
and the transfer of their functions
to the principals and teachers, de
claring that too many "fringes and
trimmings and furbelows" had got
ten into the system.
