Thursday evening, March 31, has
been settled upon as the date for the
spelling match between the boys of
the ward schools of the city. On that
evening, in the Y. M. C. A. auditorium,
teams of five boys each, representing
all the seventh and eighth grades of
the city schools, will contest for hon

bly there has never been such an in
tense interest in the spelling work in
the city schools as there is today. In
all the schools that are to participate
the children, boys and girls, are work
ing tremendously to master the list of
words assigned by Superintendent Hay
den for the match.
Dai IT Matrhn. x
Spelling matches are almost of daily
occurrence in some of the schools, and
these matches are enlisting the entire
student body in the grades concerned.
Mr. Hayden explains one of the bene
fits of the plan in this way: While
the spelling match in a room is In
progress every child in the room is
following every word as it is given
out, and is spelling the word mentally
with the one who spells it orally. Thus
perhaps 50 children are concentrating
their whole thought upon their spell
ing work with a new interest.
Next week Mr. Hayden and Secre
tary Smedley of the Y. M. C. A. will
visit the schools to display the pennant
and other prizes which are to be award
ed to the winners. It is .expected that
thi3 .will bring the interest to a still
May Be Annual Event.
It is planned, in case the contest is
as popular as it promises to be, to
make it an annual event, giving the
children of the seventh and eighth
grades a chance each year to win hon
ors in spelling. The plan is being pro
moted by the Y. M. C. A. for the pur
pose of advancing the children in this
most important study.

stockholders of the Studebaker Bros.

company of Detroit' that

Following this came the news that
the Studebaker Vehicle company of
New York was incorporated yesterday
with a capital of $8,6000,000 to manu
facture automobiles and other vehicles
and supplies. Some of the automobile
companies which, it is said, may enter
into the big combine are the United

.According to rumor, there Is at pres

combination of these Interests. Not
long ago the General Motors company
was organized to control three or more
of the prominent factories fn the mid

When the automobile world began to
investigate who were back of these

the moving spirits in the General Mo

that Herbert L. Satterele was one of
the leaders in that move also.
