Miopvlcys task in the coming years.

I of forcing children to remain away j
I irom school. !
Conditions Apparent.
Anyone in doubt as to the need
of a number of buildings right now
can find out the very crowded condi
tions by visiting any school or sev
eral school buildings. The conditions
can be seen first hand. Of course.
Classes may be found here and there
Avbieh are not even up to capacity,
but they are far away from the
crowded places. Where it has been
possible to relieve conditions by send
ing children to other buildings in the
Mine section it has been done.
It would not be necessary to ap
propriate all of the money for these
buildings this year. Authority could
b?- gi\. n to enter into contracts for
th- buildings, with M comparatively
*rn* '1 aniount t?. *tart the huild.ng
operations, and the full expenditure
could be carried over a period of
tw0 years or more, as it would take
practically that time to complete the
buildings, taking into consideration
the time necessary to draw the
plans and enter into contracts.
Some provision has been made for
new buildings, but the commission
ers could not open contracts be
cause the bids exceeded by 100 per
cent in^ most cases the appropria
tion. Efforts are to be made at this
?*ession of Congress to have these
appropriations increased.
I I'lah Sellool \eed Greatest.
The Hiirh School situation is par- '
ticularly bad. Classes are much
overloaded and children are using
every available bit of space in th**
present buildings, including assem
bly halls, corridor* and laboratories
Jn ?om" cases it has been ncccssary
t?? abandon studies both for lack of
t?-aehers and lack of space.
There is no question of the short
age of teachers. Tli?*re are not
enough to teach the present classes,
and the small salaries are weekly
taking more ?>f them awav from the
system. Substitutes?that is satis
factory substitutes?many times
cannot be obtained.
It is nothing to see in almost any
division these days children from
the Eighth gr;id?- schools handling
classes while the regular teacher is
ill at home. It has even been nec
essary to admit into some of the
schools women who have never be
fore had any experience whatever
in teaching. Rut usually one day is
enough for thom. and they leave.
The Eighth grade children even
make better teachers than this class
of substitutes. What is nteded is a
regular substitute corps, rrgularly
employed. These teachers when not
needed for substitute work could be
used as coaching teachers, and the
i funds used in maintaining them
vould be wisely spent.
Confuse Private Bodies

Semi-public organizations bearing

which it is stated:
"There is only one official bnreau

Marines wh<> served In the war. was
Introduced In the House by Repre
sentative H. * Osborne of Cali

mittee.

ficiaries. officers ?nd men allk. .

soldiers and sailors "to the advan
tages of the life they enjoyed when

GIVILPENSION .j
BEFORE SENATE
_______ |
Sterling Measure Expected
To Go Forward Despite
Opposition.
i
The Sterling bill, for the pension
inn of civil Service employes, came
up In the Senate yesterday after
noon. ard was the subject of a
heated debate between Senators
Stirling and Pomerene, at the
close of which Senator Pomerene
introduced a substitute bill. It Is
expected that consideration of the
bill will now go rapidly forward.
The bill, as introduced by Sena
I tor Sterling, provides for the re
tirement of all employes In the
classified Civil Service who have
r. lied the age of l>5 years and
'have rendered at least fifteen years
I service. The most important f? a
[firc of the bill Is that the gov
ernment shall contribute 62.S per
cent toward the fund for retire
ment. and the Civil Service em
ploves 37.7 per cent, by assessment.
The substitute bill, by Senator
Pomerene. which will be consid
ered on the floor of the Senate to
day. provides for a graduated scale
of assessment against employes
salaries, which rises according to
?the age of the person when he en
' ters Civil Service employment, in
| order to provide a retirement fund.
This assessment is in no case to
! exceed 8 per cent of the salary.
The pomerene bill will provide for
retirement at the age of 70.
In debate with Senator Sterling
yesterday. Senator Pomerene de
;clared that the Sterling bill would
icost $15,000,000. Instead of $9,000 -
000, as Sterling estimated. He
characterixed the bill as unjust and
| an unreasonable burden upon the
government and the taxpayers.
! A petition signed by 2.086 em
fployes of the Government Printing
.Office, requesting a favorable con
sideration of the Sterling bill, was
i received by Senator Sterling yes
terday.

COMMITTEE HOLDS
UP CHAIN BRIDGE BILL
Consideration of a bill providing for
drafting plans for a bridge to replace
the old Chain Bridge above George
town was blocked in the House Di?- J
trict Committee yesterday by the
failure of a quorum to vote.
The point was raised by Represent
ative L?ampert after a motion was
lost to reduce the appropriation for
drawing plans for the new biidge
from 97.500 to 12,500. Consideration of
the matter will be resumed at the I
next meeting, of the committee.
Khglneer Commissioner Kutz said
the present structure cannot safely'
Sear the weight of heavy trucks and
? ??her vehicles likely to use the bridge.
He suggested that District employe*
ould draw up plans for the bridge,
but that the hiring of an outside ,
architect is desirable. The bridge, he
stated, should be of masonry.
Representative R. Walton Moore, of
Virginia, who introduced the bill, de
lured that the present structure ??
unsafe and emphasized the need for
? RfV one.
The committee also considered the
Tread way bill to relieve hotel pro- j
ruietors of liability for valuables
stolen from the looms of guests. Rep- ,
Jc.sentative Burdick, of Rhode Island, j
reported for a subcommittee favoring
this legislation.
Empty Docket in Police
Court Blamed on Weather
Unusual conditions were presented
in both branches of Police Court yes
terday, due to meteorological causes.
There were but two prisoners brought
t<? court in thn "Black Maria" for
trial in the District branch. When
Judge Hardtson took his seat on the
l.ench at 9:30 o'clock, it was found
that there were no defendants ^n the
dock. The two men had faded away
after depositing collateral.
"The weather conditions last night."
Deputy l'Jerk Cam. Howard said,
"cheeked *l?e ciime wave for the
time. Neither bad men nor good men
were willing to face the small bliz
zard of driving sleet and biting North
winds."
In the United States branch. Prose
cutor Ralph Given presented to Judge
McMahon the docket of about twenty
cases for trial by Jury. It was found
necessary to halt most of the trials
because of illness, due to "round
hog" weather, of either attorneys,
defendants or witnesses.
The empty dock in the District
Court establishes a record, officials
said.
170 in Next Contingent
Of Fleet Employes
One hundred and seventy em
ployes of the Emergency Fleet Cor
poration and their families will
comprise the next contingent which
will leave Philadelphia for Wash
ington. They will arrive in Wash
ington on February 12. IS and 14.
according to information yesterday
from officials in Philadelphia.
The information also carried a
request that additional rooms be
obtained, and that several of the
employes in the party would re
quire apartments.
Postpone Teachers' JMeetin*.
Inclement weather effsed the
postponement of the meeting of the
newly organized Grade Teachers*

HAM REPORTS
EARNINGS LESS
W. R. & E. Co. Revenue
Shrinking Each Month
Since Last November.
j Earnings of the Washington
Railway and Electric Company are
growing Ion each month, according
to a statement made yesterday by
the president. William F Han. Mr.
Ham stated that the earnings of
; the W. R. & E. Company during Jan
uary averaged 112.051 per day.
which hr said is les? than the daily
I average of earnings in November
. and December. The November earn
ings were given at $1S.968 per day.
and (14.255 per day for December.
I Total earnings for November were
'said to b? S418.740 and (441.(14 for
December. For January total earn
ings were $421,187.
This showing was cited by Mr.
f Ham as an illustration of the neces
i sity for the prompt granting of the
compary'j plea for a seven cent
fare, with a two cent charge for
trarsfers. Tie rate of four tickets
I for twenty-five rents means a re
turn of only 3.28 per cent to the
I security holders on the fair valua
? tion of the road, he said.
It ih thought that the Commission
is delaying action on the petition
' of the W. R fz E. Company for a
;seven cent fave ard a renewal of
| the charge for transfers to see
J whether Congress will enart a bill
; to relieve th* company of taxation.
"It is certain. ' said Mr. Ham.
"that the Washington Railway and
Electric Compan> cannot continue
indefinitely operating under the
present conditions."
