State Superintendent of Education s
Swearingen issued tonight the follow
3ng statement regarding the special 1
meeting of the State board here to- a
"After a recess .of twenty days, the c<
State board of education held a short
meeting today in the office of Governor
Blease. All members were present it
"and much important business was la
"Mr. F. F. Hough appeared before
the board in behalf of the B. F. John- 1:
son company, of Richmond. This house o?
was offered a contract for basal third, I
fourth and fifth readers. These read- c<
ers are known as "graded classics,"
and are extensively used among the
independent schools." H
The Johnson Company Contract.
"The publishing house has not as
fet accepted the contract on th'ese
three readers, because it could notW
meet the 60 per cent. exchange allow
~ances offered by the Wheeler .comn
pany, of Chicago, on the high priced
primer first anid second readers, of the
new basal series, adopted by the board.I
Under the new contract the primer
sells for 25 cents, the first reader for
25 cents, and the second reader for 35t
cents, while in the Johnson graded
classics the third reader sells for 32 b
cents, the fourth reader for 35 centsg
and the fifth reader for 35 cents.
"The State treasurer now holds at
deposit of $1,000 guaranteeing the abil
ity of the B. F. Johnson company to
execute whatever contract it might re
ceive from the State board. The sur
~render of the contract on the part of E
~he company will, in* that case, cause L
~the fortfeiture of this deposit. The s4
~posit of $1,000 will then be paid intod
the State treasury as part of the per- -
~ manent school fund.
"Such a procedure is almost unheard r
of in text-book history. One well a
known representative of a large pub- a
lish'ing house declared .that in his a
twelve years' experience he has never e
known this,situation to be duplicated, a
"The situation is interesting, for the n

"The publishers recommended the
R. L. Bryan company, of oulCimba c
R. L. Bryan company, of Columbia, to' b
manage the central text-book deposi- a
tory, and this recommendation was ap- E
proved. The State board also adopted c
the treatise On advanced English syn~ F
tax, by Prof. E. B. Setzier, of Newberry
college, for use in the eleventh grade
of the high schools; the Gildersleeve
~odge Latin grammar and Myers short a
history of mediaeval and modern 2
times. . s
"The controversy concerning Waddy
hompson's history was adjusted to
the satisfaction of all parties. The c
language to which objection has been a
made now stands "the route of the n
army was marked by the destruction c
of property. Columbia, the capital of 9J
the State, was laid in ashes." This
sentence was modified, and as accept
'ed, reads as follows: "The army a
marked its route by the destruction of ~
property and laid Columbia, the capi- t
ta fthe State, in ashes."

"The committee on course of study
will submit its report as soon as,pos- -
sile and State Superintendent Swear-.
ingen will have this printed for dis
tribution as soon as it is placed in his
ands. Many inquiries are being re- i
ceived at the office of the State super- i
i~ntendent and he is hopeful of having i
this information ready for the people
niext week. The publication of the
eu rse of study, however, will depend
