All That Is Required to Dismiss
AH the Pupils.
Chief Hastings of the fire depart
ment and Superintendent Hayden of
the city schools completed their in
spection of the fire drills in the sev
eral school buildings this morning.
Yesterday afternoon they visited the
schools in the east end of , the city and
this morning in the western portion
of the city. In all the buildings they
found the principals and teachers en-,
thusiastlc in their efforts to have the'
children well organized for any emer
gency; and the children seemed to
find great enjoyment in the fire drill
as a temporary release from their j
studies. At all the buildings the chil
dren seemed to be already well train
ed for any emergency that may occur.
and the drills were accomplished in a t
manner creditable to teachers and pu
pils. Rerortlx of ExItM.
The time required for all of the pu
pils to leave the building varied in '
the different schools, only 35 seconds 1
being required in the smaller struc-
tures where there are fewer pupils,
while in the larger buildings a minute
and a half was required.
Below are given the facts relative
to the size of the buildings, the enroll
ment, and the record of the fire drill
as noted by the fire department chief .
and the superintendent:
The Eugene Field school is a two
story building with eight rooms, hav
ing about 274 children in attendance.
At this building the three lower rooms
were dismissed through the rear doors
to the play ground, while the upper
grades passed out of the front door.
This building was cleared in one min
ute and 10 seconds.
The Horace Mann school contains
nine rooms, four on the first floor and
five on the second. . There were 300
children in attendance. The building
was cleared in 1 minute and 5 seconds,
it being noticeable that even with this
quick dismission there was no running
on the part of the children, just a rap
id walk. The first four rooms passed
through the front door, the upper five
rooni3 at the rear.
At the Longfellow school there are
nine rooms, four below and five above.
There are about 350 pupils in attend

The Grant school has about 150 pu
pils in attendance. It is a two-story
building, with two rooms below and
two above. There is only one entrance
to the building and all the rooms are
necessarily of easy access. This build
ing was cleared in 35 seconds.
Good Order Kept.
At all the buildings it was notice
able that the pupils were kept well In
hand by the teachers. In some of
them when the gong sounds the fire
alarm, the teachers say "one," "two,"
"three." At the word "one," the pu
pils stand; at! "two," they line up fac
ing the doors; at "three," they march.
At all the buildings the teachers see
that the last pupil is out of the room
before leaving themselves. The boys
jasgigned to do monitor duty, opening
me aoors ana securing tnem m place,
and so on, show remarkable profi
ciency. The children are being trained to
pass as directed out of the front or
rear doors of the building, as may be
