Her Viiit to England.

Tor the first time since her return
from England Miss Sara V. Taylor gava
a full report of the Internet onal Educa
tional congress and the Investigations which
she mode as to English methods of school-
Ing. The occasion was a special meeting
of the South Omaha local association at
the auditorium of the high school.
Nearly all of the teaching force and
many . friends and patrons were present
Miss Taylor spent no time telling of her
voyage of private experiences, which no
doubt she enjoyed to the full capacity,
hut plunged at once Into her theme, which
was a comparison Of the English and
Blio was much Impressed with the grand
scale of things In London. There 150,000
school children attend dally In over 3.000
school build ngs. There are something l.ke
20,0 0 teachers and many thousand other
officials In connection. Teachers In Lon
don in the secondary schools, at least, get
better pay than In America.
In England there is a pretty sharp di
vision among the students at about 12
years of age. Strict examinations cause
a separation In the classes. Those who
fail in the scholarship requirements are
thereafter directed to the mechanical pur
salts ami to the trades. Their education
becomi'S technical on thes lines. When
relegated to this class the student usually
takes up the trado his fath r followed be
fore 1.1m and It Is looked upon as pre
sumption to enter another. The Ide.i of
cast. and lowkl'in In society seems evident
in n I t'-e schools.
Mish Taylor visited Southampton, the
home i f the rilgrlms, and examined Into
the (ondi.lons there. She said she heard
the children sing "Tho Breaking Waves
I lashed High on a Stern and Rock-Bound
Coast." . She said she did not blame the
lf'rlms for leaving that part of England.
At one of the schools visited she no..ced
' a bright little girl who seemed to desire
to roc He on every opportunity. The ot iters
kept stolt.l faces and. although they lis
tened eagerly, seldom .took any part.
Af.ernard the Instructor aald: "Did you
notice" that little girl?" "Tes," replied
Miss Taylor, "she seemed fond of talk
ing.'1 The Instructor smiled. "She Is an
American girl," she said.
Miss' Taylor sa.d she noticed a peculiar
order given at the close of an Intermis
sion In one of the schools. The Instructor
Mild: "Kveryone, now, blow your noses."
It was done solemnly, without hes.tancy,
wl.ore. In America, It would have betn
followed by complete convulsions. Even
the teachers remained Immovably grave
while the American women laughed out
right. "Scotland," said MIfs Taylor, "is much
ahead ot England In classical and tech
nical learning. The higher class scholar

SCHOOL AND COLLEGE WORK
Another Hot Blast Against High
ACTIVITIES OF UNIVERSITIES
Increasing Enrollment, Mew Build

That high school fraternltlea should bs
absolutely abolished Is the strange state
ment of Prof. John N. Oreer In the House
keeper series ot papers on "The Truth
About the Public Schools." He says In
part: These societies are factional and
stir up contention. They form premature
and unnatural friendships. They are suit
Ish and snobbish. They dissipate energy
and ambition and set up wrong standards
of excellence. They Inculcate a feeling of
self-sufficiency In the members, lessen
frankness and cordiality toward teachers,
footer dark-lantern methods, encourage
habits of extravagance. Introduce politics
Into the schools and detract attention from
study. More baneful perhaps than the re
sults just named Is the undemocrat lnfltr
ence In an Institution where not only are
all on an equal footing, but where the
most valuable and Important lesson to be
taught Is that of equality.
In my own experience all that has been
said about these societies la true, and
mora. T H v n nt I tA that whan a tvtv '
Joins a fraternity he soon leaves his Sun
day school. It Is not long thereafter be
fore he smokes. A yer later be knows
the Ins and outs of gambling. When he
graduates he may have been "drunk"
more than once or otherwise dissipated.
This picture may not be a general rule,
but I have had personal knowledge of
Many of these are boys Who never would
have gone that way had they been kept
home and not have had this opportunity
to get entirely away from adult Influence.
This opportunity to get out from under
all restraint Is the step which leads to
many a fall. Their pledge keeps them
from telling on one another. This vow Is
one that Is in their minds superior to
home, school, church or state. The way.
j they keep it Is often quite humorous were
u noi so aisasxrous to character.
All members do not go to the bad of
course. Yet I can truthfully say that there
Is a decided depreciation of ideals, a loosen
ing of moral standards and a lessening of
their respect for authority In about all In
stances. Possibly there are parents who
will say that their daughters have been
members of sororities and they have never
observed anything out of the way. They
also know that their daughters have had
some grand good times with much whole
some fun out of them. We have had occa
sionally, an active membership In a sorority
that was made up of as fine a type of girl
hood as you will find anywhere In the
United Btates and they had good old times
when they got together, and In having that
gxd time had nothing that was question
able. Now let them go to school next day.
They flocked by themselves. They wanted
no Intruders. They drew their skirts close
to themselves should any of the "hoi
pollot" pass near. Now this group of beau
tiful girlhood, and there Is not one of them
but that you would be proud to call your
daughter, this group, I say, bad absolutely
no business to be found In that attitude
in publlo school room. They did not
represent a single essential of true demo
cracy. No part of a school should repre
sent the favored few. The public school
should afford no opportunity for superiority
of class or condition except that which is
won through Individual attainment.
I believe there Is not a parent, however,
In the city who can say about his son what
may truthfully be said about a few daugh
ters. Therein lies the danger. The boy In
his teens has very much less judgment and
reason than the girl. There is a much
greater tendency in the boy to "sport" and
dUslpate when not under restraint.
I could Illustrate by individual examples
how boys of the finest abilities and tastes
have Just gone down to the bad, the "frat"
be In the open door behind which they
took their first step. Behind this "frat" door
Is often lurking the tempter waiting for
the Innocent Iamb. The lamb has taken
his vow to forever nourish and protect this
tetrpter under all and every circumstance.
It Is not long until he Is "meat" for the
tempter and he soon Is taught the "ropes."
So much of this kind of dastardly work
Is accomplished before the parent, pastor
or teacher knows anything about It. To
have this thing happen and to have It
happen-in connection ylth a publlo school
is preposterous. A school managoment
should have the authority to annihilate It
The home and the church should provide
happen In connection with a publlo school
should assist the home and the church In
building up the highest Ideals of character
and scholarship. The school should never
In any instance afford the slightest op
portunity to lower or defeat the ideals of
home cr church. The resulting conditions
uruugni iwui uy me i acts surrounding
tnese societies demonstrate that they are
destructive of the wholesome ideals for
which very church, home and school should

Special Appropriation Mad for Agrl
At the last session of the general assem
bly a special appropriation of $27,000 was
mads for agricultural extension work. The
State college was by this act authorised to
conduct experiments in the various portions
of the state and to give instruction in
agriculture whenever, in the Judgment of
the college authorities, it was deemed ad
visable. The statute provides that instruc

The report ot the trustees shows that In

of ths department that letters, circulars
and other mailed pieces numbering more
than 75.000 have gone out under the direc

A publlo school division, having for Its
purpose the promoting of agriculture and
domestic economy Into the publlo schools,
has been organised. The report states that
Prof. Rorm, ths head of this department,

Instead of taking Immediate action ap
pointed a committee to look Into the
matter. The plan figured out by the physi

student to pay fl athletic fees for each
semester to pay the costs of the one-man

crease the fees at the State university will
be fought by the students for the reason
that at this time there are fees charged,
which were originally charged when the
Institution was short of finances, owing
to the use of the veto power by Governor
