Prof. Lee Kirkpatrick, Superin
tendent of Paris City Schools, is es
tablishing a new part-time class for
the employed children, who cannot
attend the half-time co-operative
class successfully maintained the
One interesting factor in connec
tion with the establishment of this
class is that it will bring into ef
fect the compulsory continuation
school law, which makes it neces
sary for, the 14 and 15-year-old child
who has not completed the eighth
grade to attend school four hours
each week. This is but one more in
dication of the unanimous belief of
the Kentucky people in the bene
fits of public education.
The course which will be provided
for these children is interesting be
cause of the direct application to
life, and because of its being taught
by the "Conference Method," under
which each point for discussion is
analyzed and dissected by the class
as a whole, and the results trans-
ksribed to forms provided the nunils
1 for this purpose. This method of
instruction makes it possible for the
student to leave the class with a
hand-book compiled by himself,
which will show him everything
from what principal he will have if
a saves 25c a day for a period of
years and keeps it invested at 5,
to why the morning smile is a fac
tor of success. Aside from this
special social instruction opportu
nity will be afforded for studying
English and arithmetic.

partment of Education, and Prof. A.
