PETROGRAD, Nor. 2. In view of

impression was spreading abroad
that Russia was virtually out of the
war. Premier Kerensky discussed the
present condition of the country today

ent and said Russia was worn out
with the long strain, but that it was
ridiculous to say the country was out
of the war. The premier referred to
the years when Russia had fought
her own campaigns alone with no such
assistance as has been extended to
France by Great Britain and the
United States now1. He said he felt
that the help Russia needed and asked
at, this time was entirely within her
He appealed to the world not to lose
faith in the Russian revolution. "Rus
sia," Kerensky added, "is taking an
enormous part in the struggle and
those who said she was out of it
must have short memories."
No Cause to Say Russia is Quitting.

PRAISE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Illinois Educators Visit Here In
Searclt for New Methods.
Miss Susan Dickinson Stone, princi
pal of the grammar school of Ravinia,
111'., and Mrs. 'Ralp'hT; Seymour, a
member of the school board of
Ravinia, arc visiting the Elementary
School here, with a view to adopting
some of the methods used here. The
school they represent has already
been using some of th ideas which
Dr. J. L. Merian has employed in the
"I believe that Dr. Meriam has
found the right way to organize class
work, with longer periods and with a
new classification of subjects," said
Miss Stone. "He is a pioneer in the
field, and I believe he will undoubtedly
be more and more followed by edu
"The interest which the children in
the Elementary School take in their
work Is remarkable. We find that the
pupils in Ravinia are enthusiastic and
appreciative of the new methods we
are adopting In our schools."
Ravinia is a suburb of Chicago,
About 100 children In the kindergarten
and grammar school represent 70 or
80 families. Until this year the taxes
have not been enough to support a
good school. Some women In the town
devised a plan of taxing every res!
dent so that a special supplementary
fund for the school could be raised,
This was purely voluntary, families
contributing according to their ability.
In four years under this system, the
standard of the school was raised
from a very low one to a high one.
The school now has six regular
teachers and four who teach special
subjects. Physical training is taught
every day; music and art are taught
on alternate days. Construction work
is emphasized. The school has four
rooms and a kindergarten, so that two
grades are In the same room and have
some of the same work.
"We have found the University so
interesting that we would like to stay
a week. Although we only expected to
inspect the Elementary School, the
High School has also attraced our ad
miration and approval," said Miss
Mrs. Seymour Is one of the women
on the school board of six. "Our com
hunlty Is a progressive one, anxious to
help us in developing the school along
the best lines. Parents and children
co-operate with us in our work," she

ITALIAN HEADQUARTERS IN
NORTHERN ITALY, Nov. 2. Italian
and Allied troops are preparing for a
counter-offensive against a large por
tion of the enemy lines on the Tag
liamento River, it is forecast.
Not only is the main body of the
Italian army intact after having dealt
several severe blows to the enemy,
but It is apparent that the Italians
have thwarted the Austro-German
plan of encompassing the Third Army
on the Corso, thereby cutting off the
flower of, the forces in this region,
rendering the Venetian plains de
fenseless, and thus encouraging the
hope of the enemy of a decisive vic
tory with vast satisfactory political
The safe return to the Tagliamento
was due to tho heroism of large
bodies of Italians who refused to sur
render and regiments that perished
to the last man rather than yield
ground. It was because ot such re
sistance that the civilian population
was able to retire before the advance
of the enemy.
Amid the onslaughts of overwhelm
ing masses, the Italians fell back
slowly. All roads were packed with
tho dense traffic of automobiles, artil
lery wagons and ox carls, four or, five
lines abreast. It was such a scene
as the world has seldom witnessed.

TODAY IS BOONE'S BIRTHDAY
183d Anniversary of Explorer Who
Come to Missouri in 1799.
Today, November 2. is the one
hundred and eighty-third anniversary
of the birth of Daniel Boone, the pio
neer hunter, explorer and land pilot,
He was born near Reading, Pa., In 1734
and came to Missouri In the spring of
1799. The sparse population in tho
state at the time Boone came was for
the most part French. There were
practically no taxes to pay and mili
tary burdens sat lightly; there were
no elections; the fur and lead trade
was good and there was an abund
ance of game.
Daniel Boone died at Charette, Mo.,
in 1820. The Constitutional Conven
tion went into mourning for him for
twenty days. The state of Kentucky
claimed his bones and they were sup
posedly moved to that state, but It Is
the opinion that the wrong grave was
opened and that the old hunter rests
still in the cemetery at Marthasville.
