Education Board Members
. Favor an Associate Super
intendent as Successor to
One of the four associate superin
tendents of schools -win, in all probability
succeed Dr. Martin O. Brumbaugh as
the head of the public educational system.
This prediction was made today by one
of tho most Influential members of tho
Board of Education. Ho said the teachers
of Philadelphia need hav no fear that
a, resident of another city would be chosen.
for tho office.
Members of the board have been over
whelmed "with letters Indorsing tho candi
dacy of at least ten educators, some of
whom nro PhlladelphlanB and othors resi
dents of cities In California, Massachu
setts, Texas and New Jersey. A rumor
had been current among tho city's In
structors that an nttempt -would bo made
to eloot an educator who has never tauGht
In the Philadelphia schools.
This -wan characterised as "foolish" by
several members of tho board. Tho salary
of tho superintendent Is J9000 a year. The
superintendent la executive head of a
system that spends $3,000,000 annually, and
ho Is In command of an army ot mora
than 5000 teachers.
During- tho absence of Doctor Brum
baugh from tho city his position has al
ways been filled by Dr. "William C.
Jaoobs, associate superintendent ot
schools. Doctor Jacobs has occupied tho
superintendents chair for a total ot 18
months, and that fact is being used by
hta friends as an argument in favor of
his election.
Ha was always closer to Doctor Brum
baugh in his official relationship, than
tho other assistants. Dr. John P. Garber,
also an associate superintendent, is re
ceiving considerable support on the part
of teachers.
He has been active In organizing
modern educational features In the pub
lic schools of suburbs of this city, serv
ing without salary, -when his dally duties
in this city bava been done. Doctor
Garber Is author of a series of educa
tional works of -which Doctor Brum
baugh Is tho editor.
Doctor Jacobs received his pedagogical
training at the Mlllersrllle State Nor- I
mal School and pursued a post-graduate
course at tho University of Pennsylvania
for which ho -was awarded the degree of
doctor of philosophy. Ho is a student
of psychology and philosophy, but Is also
regarded as one of the most practical
school executives In the United States.
George Wheeler Is tho only associate
superintendent -who cannot boast of a
doctor's degree, and, although ho Is not
a graduate of a large university, ho en
Joys a wide reputation among local edu
cators. He is a younger man than Doc
tor Jacobs or Doctor Garber.
Mr. "Wheeler studied in the night school
of Templo University to supplement his
normal school training after he had been
elected to tho associate, superlntendency.
He Is now planning a reorganization of
tha grading system in the public schools
with the purpose of reducing tho annual
expenditure by $100,000 and decreasing tho
congestion In the high schools.
Dr. Oliver P. Common, the only grad
uate of the public high schools of this
city, is said to bo Indifferent concerning
the superlntendency, although his high
standing might warrant his candidacy.
He la In charge of the evening schot$
and of all the sociological undertakings
of tho Board of Education.
The board will hold its annual organiza
tion meeting on Monday, in accordance
with a requirement of the school code.
At that meeting it must chooso Its presi
dent. It may also elect n new superin
tendent, but If such action is taken it will
be obliged to formally re-elect him In
January, the'tlme set by act of Assembly
for the choice of a superintendent
A member of the board today expressed
the belief that the Committee on Ele
mentary Schools would recommend to the
board Its choice as superintendent. While
it Is not obliged to take such action, its
unofficial selection would be an Important
factor In the choice of a new superin
tendent. Tho board may fall to elect a superin
tendent until January, continuing Doctor
Jacobs' service as acting superintendent.
Tho latter has been serving In Doctor
Brumbaugh's place since he -was given
' leave at absenoe several months ago to
enter a. campaign for the governorship.
Before he took; the stump Doctor Brum
baugh -was given leave without pay, but
he asked that his resignation be accepted,
so that his political opponents might not
accuse htm of holding- offlco and engaging
In politics simultaneously. The resigna
tion was not accepted, its consideration
being deferred upon motion of John
It Is the opinion of William T, TUden.
one of the most prominent members of
the board, that due consideration should
ba given to Doctor Jacobs' services as
acting superintendent. He would not
commit himself definitely, however, to the
indorsement of any candidate.

versity cheer in approved fashion.
Tho procession' started at about 11:80. A
moving-picture man stationed at 33d and
Walnut streets had the time of his life.
The students spotted him In a hurry, and
then began their serpentine dance all the
way up this thoroughfare. Then they
turned Into Woodland avenue and Anally
down Market street. All train a had to

But U -was an unusually orderly parade,
and while there were a good many police

Once at the Terminal tha students piled
np the stairs still led by the band. Form
ing' a lane they waited for tho arrival
ot the football players. As the gridiron
warriors passed through every man was
given a rousing cheer. The players hur
ried Into their special cars, which were
attached to the Black Diamond Express.
The Immense body of students complete
ly filled the train shed, and policemen had
to stand at the foot of the stairs to hold
back every one pot armed with a railroad
ticket. Evtn then tt was a hard matter
for the regular passengers to find the
gates for their trains. It was here that
the real enthusiasm ot the students broke
loose. Five husky cheer leaders, led by
Captain Donald V. Wpplnoott, of the
track team, the world's 100 meter record
bolder, took positions above the doors
leading from the -waiting room to tho
train shed. After shouting themselves
hoarse cheering for the team and the
university. Captain Llpplncott called out
the name of every man on the varsity
squad, and the University cheer tn varied
form was, given for each player.
Then (he students began to cheer the
coaches and every member of the coach

and Eddie Greene, were given rousing
Then there came sails from the stu

of them were then In the speeial . ears,

Captain Journeay. Fullbask 8ykes Tucker
and Charles aotwals. The reception which
greeted Journeay was of, the moat en
thusiastic sort. Lifted by -willing hands
to the improvissd platform, he was
cheered for nearly two minutes before
he could make himself heard. Then ha
delivered a Stry speech which was punc
tuated with ebeers.
"Fellows," h saML "this is the greatest

fellow on the team believes the same
thing. We have got to win. You fellows
down there are fighting tor us and we're
going to light for you. If hard work and
spirit count for anything wo are going
to reverse the verdict of last year's game
when Michigan won."
That was the sort of talk the students
liked, and they gave Journeay a parting
cheer and then roared forth another -welcome
when Tucker mounted the rostrum.
Tucker told the students that he felt
sure Pennsylvania would win, and they
cheered him to the echo.
Five minutes before the train was
scheduled to start the band, which had
accompanied the team to the train, struck
up and the students marched out of the
station -with the same order that they
had entered it. The players themselves
grouped about the doors and windows as
the train started.
The team ts scheduled to reach Detroit

hurried lunch and dress for the game.
All of the Pennsylvania coaches were
optlmlstlo of a victory, but they would
not go on record In making predictions.
Head Coach Brooke said that the men
were tn the very best condition they had
been this year and that not a single
player -was suffering from Injuries. Asked
as to the manner in which the team
would line up, he said that the only
doubt -was at one guard and one tackle
position, where Wltherow and Russell
-were having a hard tight to keep Nor
