Census Costs the City $500.
Manual Training for the
Negro School Supt. Cro
zier's First Report.
It cost El Paso $500 to learn that
there are 299 more children of school
age "within the corporate limits of this
city than there were when the census
was taken last year. The total num
ber this year is 7106 compared with
6S07. one year ago.
R. N. MuhL who took the school cen
sus of the city, made this report to the
school board at Its regular meeting
Monday night and the remarkable thing
about the whole report is the number of
Mexican children who total up more

and will assume his duties at once at
a salary of $100 per month. This does
away with the secretary's position, as
he will occupy that as well as perform
ing whatever other clerical work the
board may call upon him to do.
The salary of- the superintendent's
stenographer was cut to $75 but no one
was appointed, superintendent Crozier
reporting that he was not reads' to de
cide on anyone as yet and probably
will make no appointment until after j
Tools and paraphernalia, necessary to
the manual training work costing $1000
was ordered for the ensuing year.

Xegro Teacher Named.
Following the reading of the minute
came the report of the superintendent.
and then the Internal committee recom
mended that Geneva Bradley be ap
pointed a teacher at Douglass school, to
fill the vacancy caused by the retire
ment of Kate Jamison, who did not ap
ply for reappointment. This committee
also recorrfmended that superintendent
Crozier be granted a six weeks' leave of
absence. This report was adopted.
Dr. E. H. Irvln, of the external com
mittee, presented a report In which It
was recommended that some one be ap
pointed repair man and supply distrib
utor unller the direction of the super
intendent of manual training at a salary
to be fixed by the board.
A Purchasing Affent.
The report also recommended the ap
pointment of a purchasing agent, book
keeper; and clerk at a,salary of $100 per
m&nth and suggestedthe selection of F.
B. Sawyer. Other applicants were G. R.
Glbbs, S. H. Newman and J. T. Fletcher.
The committee also recommended the
appointment of a stenographer to the
superintendent. W. H. Winter asked:
"Cannot one person attend to both of
fices?" Harper replied it could not be
as the purchasing agent would of ne
cessity be compeled to spend much time
away from the school.
MaHnal Training Supplies.
Superlntendena Rosa's request for
supplies and equipment was Included
fin this report. He stated that it was
desired to ieach manual training in the
second year at high school and this
would necessitate the purcheaee of new
tools and benches.
Manual Training: for Negroes.
Mr. Dorbandt then said: "The com
mittee would be very glad to equip the
Douglas school if the finance commit
tee would stand for it. It looks like dis
crimination not to give the negroes the
manual training but we are afraid we
already have too much." Dr. Worsham
asked: "How much more would that
cost?" and superintendent Ross said:
"It would cost $750."
Dorbandt replied: "It looks to me, if
we could do that for such a small sum
we ought to do it."
Winter then inquired how many stu
dents at the high school had elected to
teke the manual training course and
when superintendent Ross informed him
there were 10, he asked if they could
not take it in with the other boys and
thereby avoid the necessity of putting
in a department at the high school. Ross
eaid that it would be impossible, as
the other rooms would be crowded.
Dorbandt then said: "I would like the
board to pass on this report without
eliminating the Douglas school."
"Winter said: "I would like the com
mittee to take further ifcime and see if
they cannot cut down some of the tools
Dorbandt replied: "Dr. Irvin .and I
deferred making our report at the last
meeting in order that we- might go over
it thoroughly. Mr. Ross haa informed
us that we cannot do away with any
Dr. Irvln asked: "Mr. Ross, how long
will it require to get these tools?"
Ross replied: "Well, they should be or
dered at once- I ordered some things
last February and they have not been
"I would cancel that order" said Dor
bandt. Worham said: "If we carry on the
manual training work I think the ne
groes should not be eliminated, for if
there is a class of people in need of that
sort of instruction it certainly is the
President Carpenter reassured the
members, saying: "I think on account of
retrenchments we have made in other
departments, we will be able to take
care of it."
Crozier: "We can give it up in the

high school and let the Douglass school
have it- The graduation of the pupils
there does not depend upon It and it is
not requisite to a university course."
Ross objected, however, stating:
"Then there would be no Incentive for
students to take it. It has been my idea
to build up the manual training depart
ment nnii wTisn we eret a new high
school. If we ever do, we .want to have
a full manual training department j
Manual Training a Failure. I
Crozier: "The time to put It in the i
high school is when we get a new high
school; it Is not in favor with all and
next year fewer students wrll elect to
take it than last year."
Dorbandt: "In that event manual
training has been a failure."
Harper: "Yes, to a certain extent; that
is because the students have to come

Harper: "Well, it consumes time.
Winter: "They have plenty of time.
I have done two years in one and then
had one-third of my time to play. I
know that Dr. Irvln has done the same
Harper: "It is not so much the pupils
as the teachers, the boys must miss lec
tures and they get to the classes late,
Interfering with the work."
Winter then asked: "Is It intended
I that the clerk and purchasing agent
give his entire time to the work.
Irvin replifnl that it was and Winter
then moved the adoption of the report I
leaving the matter of providing manual
training for the second year in the
high school until the next meeting of
the board. Harper seconded a motion
to this effect and it was unanlmously
Worsham offered another motion that
all be included, saying that he did not
think they should cut out any depart
ment. Winter said he 'believed the mo
tion out of order unless a motion
to reconsider was offered. Dorbandt
i agreed with him and Worsham then
I snored to reconsider. This was done
; with Winter voting no ana tne iun re
port was adopted.
Harper moved that the bills Okd by
the finance committee be allowed, but
Winter asked that they be read separ
ately and this was done.
Carpenter announced that it cost $300
to elect the three new school trustees
when a bill for election day lunches was
presented and denied.
L Then president Carpenter announced
that the census "which had just been
presented to him showed a total of
7106 school children compared with 6S07
last year. A bill amounting to $500.60
was ordered paid for this work.
Too Many Phone.
Winter said: "There are several bills
we. have not allowed because -we must
Investigate them. It is also learned
that there are four telephones in the
manual training department in the
Mesa school. It is our recommendation
that two of these be discontinued and
one phone be allowed the manual train
ing department in each school and one
be allowed in the superintendent's of
fice in the future. Also that the tele
phones be discontinued at all schools
during the summer." This was ap
proved. Miss Myra Winkler and Miss Fannie
Lee Yeacrer requested permission to use
a room at the high school for a sum
mer school, but this was denied, as It
would establish a bad precedent.
J. E. Curd 'asked that his salary be
paid in 12 instalments, but this was
likewise denied as it was feared all the
teachers, or a great many of them,
might make a similar request.
On motion of Dorbandt, the lease on
the Mesa annex at $35 per month was
renewed for one year and the cottage
near the high school at $25 per month
was also rented.
The board then adjourned.
The report of superintendent Crozier
The report of the schools rendered
you at this time is necessarily brief.
Incomplete and lacking in detail by rea
son of the fact that I was elected
superintendent on May 10th, practically
at the close of the session, and owing
to limited time and numerous duties
no opportunity was afforded me to ob
tain more than a cursory glance of the
work that was being done. From the
somewhat general reports of the prin
cipals, you should feel that the results
obtained in the schools during the past
session, are gratifying. There was in
augurated the very commendable
policy of having no formal graduating
exercises in the eighth grades of the
grammar schools. In times past more
seemed to be made of this event in a
child's life than his graduation from
the high school. Simple exercises in
each building saved a great deal of
time, energy and expense, not only of
the pupils but of the teachers as well.
High School Work.
The work in the high school during
the past session has been most satis
factory. Through the cooperation of
the Y. M. C. A. authorities t was the
policy to bring before 'the students
twice a month speakers and lecturers
of note, and such men as exgovernor
Joseph W. Folk, Capt. Richmond Pear
son Hobson. Sunshine Hawks, Dr. Ly
man B. Sperry, not to mention many
others, were numbered among those
who lectured to the students. The
good that is done in this way is in
calculable. Your attention should be called to the
steady growth of the high school dur
ing the past four years. The enrolment
increased! from 150 in May, 1906, to 316
In May, 1910. The graduates increased
from five In 1906-07 to 26 in 1909-10.
The period during which the attendance
at the high school seemingly fell off,
was when the system was changed

from 11 to 12 grades, the eignth grade
being removed from the high school.
When the standard is raised very nat
urally the number of graduates de
creases. Your recent recommendation
that teachers of the El Paso schools
should have a complete high school
education in addition to professional
training, will tend to Improve your
high school. I might add by way of
caution that we too often judge the
efficiency of a school by its numbers.
Quality and not quantity is the main
Health of Teachers.
Health of teachers and pupils is a
matter of vital Importance, and de
serves even more consideration than it
has received in the past. While all
teachers are given a physical examin
ation to see that they are free from
chronic or contagious diseases, pupils
are admitted without any examination.
The danger of a child contracting
tuberculosis from Its class mates is
very great. Especially is this true of
pupils of high school age, the period of
adolescence. We are reliably Informed
that the -vaccination test Is the only
sure one for tuberculosis. If advisable
this test should be applied to suspicious .
cases in the schools, to teacners as
Avell as to students.
A great work has been done in
athletics during the past year, through
the organization of the Grammar
School league by the physical director
of the Y. M. C. A. Considerable Atten
tion has always been given to athletics
in the high school, and its importance
is not to be estimated. In the near fu
ture I believe that special provision
should be made for this branch in the
There is a necessity for some strong
central store-room where valuable tools
and apparatus of the different schools
may be stored. The saving in this way
would more than counter balance the
comparatively light expense of boxing
and carting the equipment, and fitting
up the room securely. Arrangement
might be made to have one of the Jani
tors sleep near this store-room.
It seems imperative that the presi
dent of the board should be an exof
ficio member of every committee, and
should attend all the committee meet
ings. Of course this Is a great drain on
his time, but in this way only is he
able to get a complete grasp on all
matters that pertain to the schools. As
a public spirited Individual he will
have to sacrifice his time for the good
of the community.
These suggestions are made not to be
actel on at this meeting, but in or
der that you may think about them. If
later on you can act favorably on them,
I believe it will be for the interest of

This announcement was stupefying
enough to overshadow all other news
of the day, and satisfied the most
jaded palate for sensationalism.
The first question asked on all sides
was: Why had not the wife come for
ward before? The reason, as glibly
explained by an evening journal of
somewhat yellow proclivities, was log
ical enough. The telling of her mid
night visit to a single man's rooms
involved a shameful admission which
any woman might well hesitate to
make unless forced to it as a last
extremity. Confronted, however, with
the alternative of either seeing her
husband suffer for a crime of which
he was Innocent or making public ac
knowledgment of her own frailty, she
had chosen the latter course. Nat
urally, it meant divorce from the bank
er's son, and undoubtedly this was the
solution most wished for by the family.
The whole unsavory affair conveyed a
good lesson to reckless young men of
wealth to avoid entangling them
selves in undesirable matrimonial ad
ventures. But it was no less certain,
went on this journalistic mentor, that
this wife, unfaithful as she had proved
herself to be, had really rendered her
husband a signal service in her pres
ent scrape. The letter she had pro
duced, written to her by Underwood
the day before his death, in which he
stated his determination to kill him
self, was, of course, a complete vindi
cation for the man awaiting trial. His
liberation now depended only on how
quickly the ponderous machinery of
the law could take cognizance of this
new and most Important evidence.
The new turn of affairs was nat
urally most distasteful to the police.
If there was one thing more than
another which angered Capt. Clinton it
was to take the trouble to build up a
case only to have it suddenly demol-
ished. He scoffed at the "suicide let-
ter," safely committed to Judge Brew
ster's custody, and Denly branded It
as a forgery concocted by an immoral
woman for the purpose of defeating
the ends of justice. He kept Annie a
prisoner and defied the counsel for
the defense to do their worst. Judge
