NEW HIGH SCHOOL
IN CITY FAVORED
Business Men Suggest That
Present Building Be Used
for Manual Training.

Growth of Classes Makes It Neces
sary That Additional Room Be
ProTlded at Once.
To erect a new high school building
for the general courses of study and
to convert the present high school
into a manual arts building was the
sense of the discussion of the project
by the Rock Island Business Men's
association last night. The proposition,
which has been under consideration for
some time by the board of education,
is to build a new school for the exten
sion of the course in manual training
and domestic science. In accordance
with this plan, two sites have been
Fiiceested and ontlons taken on them.
They are both in the vicinity of the j
high school." The plsn of the board is i
t9 use the present building for the j
general course and to erect the manual i
arts building for the extension of the
The business men's association fa
vors the use of the present building
for the use of the manual training and
domestic, science, as well as depart
ments of music and drawing and other
arts, for within a few years, if the
present rate of growth continues, the
Fchool will a pain be crowded and other
i rovision will necessarily be made.
The high school building was built
in 1902 after the destruction by fire of
the old, overcrowded building. At that
time it was large enough to arcommo-
date handilv all parts of the work. To-! appearance at mai nouse. nere sr.e

It can readily be seen that the ex

students, for as. well as giving them
an opportunity to learn languages and

them for a trade which can readily be
used by large numbers. Another item
which is worth more than passing no
tice is that of physical upbuilding. A
plan to inaugurate a physical depart

under consideration by the board. A
new building would afford ample room
for the conduct of the work. An instruc

has appeared in comedy, thus resting
her voice, and now she is ready to

in the fact that she has always kept in

The committee on subscriptions for
a fund to replace the seating accom

destroyed by Are, started on its mis

fully received and met with liberal re
sponses in many instances where least
expected, there were some disappoint

not disc on raged, and expects to finish
its work in a few days.
So highly gratified, in fact, were the

HAWLEY MAY YET
GET THE RECORD
New Map of Canada Indicates
World's Balloon Mark Was
Broken Last Year.
rew York, May 16. The recent
completion of a new official map of
Canada may result in a world's rec
ord being credited to Alan R. Haw
ley, winner of the international bal
loon race of 1910. The record is at
present held by Count De La Vaulx,
who covered 1,192 miles 10 years
ago. Hawley's trip was logged by
the Aero club as 1,172 miles. Now
according to advices from Montreal,
the new map shows Hawley traveled
1.207. miles. The club will send rep
resentatives to ascertain the exact
landing place and confirm the new
figures if possible.
At High School
The members of the hifrh school
I basketball team were presented with
j their emblems yesterday as a reward
I for their participation in the required
j number of games. The boys were giv
!en only the letter, as the finances of
I the association are in such condi;ion
; that it would be folly to go to the ex
! pense of buying sweaters for the boys,
although evrry one feels that they
, earned them. Those to receive the
j emblems were Frank Wilcher, Harry
' Behnamann. Arno Tremann, Edwin
Mclntyre and Frank Hughes.
The bseball team was defeated S to
3 at Maquoketa Saturday, Empke and
Clcmann forming the battery for tbe
locals. The locals were ahead 3 to 1
till the last of the seventh, when
Empke weakened. The team will play
the .Moline hi.h school independents
at Moline Athletic park again this
evening. .-- .
The most evclting ball game of the
season will undoubtedly be on next
Friday, which is senior day, when the
seniors will cross bats with their
friends, the enemy, of the faculty. It
will be the third annual senior-faculty
game, the first one being won by
the teachers and rain breaking up a
tie last year. The faculty Is going
through some strenuous work wka
the intention of humbling the arrogant
seniors and have enlisted E;npk of
the high school regulars to do the
twirling. Nevertheless, the seniors
are by no means worried and are prac
ticing to give the faculty
of trouble of their course.
the last bit
encourage attendance from Gulva
and other nearby towns.
There are ugly rumors of tampering
with Rock Island players by another
club in a city not a thousand miles
away and one which, when looking for
a manager last year, is known to have
done the same thing. It is unfortunate
that such reports should be afloat, and
worse than unfortunate should there
be any foundation for them. The Ar
gus is loath to believe them, but should
they prove true, however, it is likely
that the local club will take vigorous
steps to put a stop to the practice.

At the current month's session of
the Modern Woodmen board of dlrec
tors, the bills covering1 expense of

vide that delegates to all such meet

IN A JOINT RECITAL
Florence D. Ituthenherg and A.
Schersten Heard at Augus
Miss Florence D. Ruthenberg and
Albert F. Schersten acquitted them
selves well in their graduating re
cital from the department of expres
sion of Augustana conservatory last
night at the college chapel. The
character of their work was high
and reflected a great deal of credit
upon Miss Iva C. Pearce, their
teacher, who is at the head of the
elocution department at the local
institution. Possessed of an excel
lent voice. Miss Ruthenberg inter
preted her selections in a pleasing
and realistic manner, entering into
the spirit of her readings. A group
i of three short poems, "A Friend to
(Man" (Fobs), "Apple Blossoms"
(Martin), and "Katies Answer"
(Anon.), were well received by those
present and she was forced to re
spond with an encore.
"The Church and the Liquor Prob
lem," an oration, was Mr, Schersten's
main number. . As an oration it is
i a masterpiece or its Kind, and was
i delivered in an affective style. Mr.
Schersten was Augustana s represen-
j tative in the Illinois prohib-tion or
atorical contest, which was held at
Abingdon in April. With this ora
tion he won honorable mention. His
work last night - showed conscien
tious work and careful training.
Misses Wllhelmlna Johnson and
