j The November Deficit.
I The deficit for the month of Nbvem
; ber, according to the report of Mr.
Sj.wver submitted to the board,.
amounted to $1G,9S5.54. The surplus for
October 31 was given at $24,781.18. The
deficit taken from that amount leaves
the balance on November 30, $7,795.64.
The report shows the building fund on
nwpmher 1 with a balance of $7,709.63.
I The total expenditures for the month
I were given at $17,109.34, less total rev
1 enue, $123.80. For five months this
I year the expenditures were rendered at
$57,671.59, with revenue ror the same
I period being given as 565,567.23.
Rpvolutionlzintr tne high school sys
tem was broached by Dr. E. H Irvin.
president of the board, who advocated
giving more education that met the re
quirement of individual cases. He
I stated that 'he thought the academic
courses in the high school could be
cut down one-half by not making the
preparation of students for college
courses the whole thing.
"Would Eliminate Two Languages.
It anything hadfito be cut, W. C.
White, a member of tne board, advo
cated leaving out the French and Ger
man and giving more Spanish.
N. R. Crozier, superintendent of the
schools, advanced the proposition that
earning capacity was enhanced by ed
ucation, and promised to submit to the
school board a treatise on that subject.
He cited the instance of a student in
the high chool, who. when he gradu
ated in J uary, would step into a po
sition th would pay him $75 a month.
Dr. Irviit .-xpressed himself as being in
favor of a system being installed
whereby the boy who could not afford
to go to college would be made a car
penter or a mechanic right in school, so
that when he graduated he would be
able to earn his living from the start.
Dr. Irvin favored the plan of prepar
ing students only for the University of
Texas, saying that the school was good
enough for anyone.
Mesa School Name Changed.
The board held Its last meeting at the
Mesa school Monday nlgnt, for hence
forth the school is to be known as the
Bailey school, named over the objection
of J. E. Morgan and F. B. Simmons. In
honor of Mrs. B. B. Bailey, who devoted
25 years of her life to teaching school
in El Paso. The suggestion to change
the name of the school had been pre
viously proposed by J. F. Coles. When
the matter was brought up for the sec
ond time, W. C. White made the motion
to have the name changed. He was
seconded by Herman Andreas. Mr. Mor
gan said that he was opposed to naming
the schools after any living persons,
but considered that a school named
after some person "in history" was all
right. Mr. Andreas then told about the
time that Mrs." Bailey used to teach
him in that school 25 years ago, and
how she had devoted so many years of
her life to teaching. Dr. Irvin put the
question to a v6te. with the result that
Andreas, White and Primm voted to
change the name, and Simmons and
j Morgan voted against it. Dr. Irvin did
The report of superintendent Crozier
for the scholastic month ending No

different schools of 5326, an Increase of
273 over last year at the correspond

age belonging was given at 4799, an
Increase of 254 over that of last year.
Mr. Crozier reported that the additional
grade had been opened at the San Ja

said, prevented the opening of a grade
at the Alamo school, and thought now
