USES A STORM-PROOF RIG
Mr. McPlierson Calls His Buggy a
"House on Wheels."
A "House on Wheels" is the name
that J. E. McPherson, superintendent
of public schools in Columbia, has giv
en to a new buggy that he bought
about a week ago. The buggy is
"storm proof." It is shut in on all
sides so that the occupant will be kept
perfectly warm in cold weather and
dry in rainy weather.
Ono of the greatest conveniences
of the rig is that there are glass win
dows on all sides and it is no trouble
to see out in any direction. All the
windows and doors are easily opened
making it easy to get In and out.
Mr. McPherson, in his work, finds
it necessary to continually be going
from one school building to another
in all sorts of weather. With his
new buggy and Rachael, his driving
mare, he notices no inconveniences of
fered by the weather.

Totals made according to schools
show that 7G subjects were failed in
the Benton School, 43 in the Jefferson.
34 in Grant and 34 in Lee.
"One reason for the high per cent
of failures," said J. E. McPherson.
superintendent of city public schools,
"is that the equivalent of eight years
work is done in seven in the schools
here. In many cases a student is re
quired to remain in one grade two
years on that account."
Mr. McPherson thinks that the
schools are not given the full support
that they should have to make the
greatest for efficiency.
They Haven't the Books.
"In reading, some children fail," he
said, "because they haven't the books
required in the supplementary read
ing. This could be remedied in two
ways. The board of education could
furnish supplementary books, or the
board can and will purchase such
books for indigent children.
"If the mechanic does high-grade
work lie must have good tools to work
with, likewise if the pupil gets the
most out of his school work, he must
have good books and plenty of them."
Tho schools of Columbia compare
favorably with any of those in towns
its size in the state. Mr. McPherson
"It is generally recognized," he
said, "by men who have had oppor
tunity to know schools in other towns
of this size, that the work done in
Columbia public schools is of very
high rank. Our plan is to make ab
stract work sucR as elementary man

In addition to this the pupils do some
beautiful work in water colors and
A Collection of Drawings.
Mr. McPherson had some samples of
drawings that the pupils in the sixth
and seventh grades had made. He
had collected them at random and said
that they were no better than hun
dreds of other specimens that might
be picked up at any of the schools.
The reading classes have been taught
to write stories and illustrate them.
The geography classes have made
maps and the arithmetic classes have
made specimens of bank drafts and
checks. Mr. McPherson thinks that
all are exceptionally good. The bind
ings on the booklets that contain the
drawings and maps look very much
as if they had been made by machinery.
Mr. McPherson had nothing but
words of praise for the work of the
Fred Douglass school.
"The work done there," ho said,
"is second to no other school of its
kind in the state. The work done in
the high school, which offers three
years, is accepted by the Lincoln In
stitute at Jefferson City. Members of
the board, E. B. Cauthorn, principal
of Columbia High School, and Dr.
Woodson Moss, who have visited the
school recently were surprised at the
good work done. There are sewing
and cooking classes for the girls and
manual training classes for the boys.

The Washington-Missouri basketball
