SCHOOL YEAR BEGINS
Half a Hundred Thousand Pu
pils Return to Study.
THE TEACHERS BUSY
SCARCITY OF ANTHRACITE COAL
FOR HEATING PURPOSES.
Buildings Occupied This Year for the
First Time-The Training
The long and happy days of summer vaca
tion ended, half a hundred thousand school
children of the city will return to their
1 books Monday morning at 9 o-clock. For
the past six weeks the repair corps of the
District government has been working in
defatigably to put the various school houses
of the District into the very best possible
condition for the reception of the army of
pupils. The Commissioners of the District
were until recently much perturbed over
the question of coal for the school furnaces,
but have now secured 2.000 tons of bitu
minous coal and coke, which will keep the
fires going from the first touch of Jack
Frost until the time of Thanksgiving, the t
last of November.
A very persistent rumor has been going i
the rounds to the effect that the schools I
would not open until after the encampment i
of the Grand Army of the Renublic, which
is to be held here the second week of Octo- i
her. There has never been any foundation
for this talk, however, and the schools will 1
open on schedule time and continue open p
throughout the encampment. It is probable, A
however, that the educational authorities <
aill follow the lead of the President of the i
United States and the District Commis.ion- o
ers in closing the departments October 8,
the day of the great parade, and will close
the schools also in order that the children t
may witness the mighty pageant of the n
patriots of 't-'65.
Teachers Very Busy.
The school authorities have been occupied i
of late preparing for the annual fall open- t
ing. School books and supplies have been
pretty well distributed at the various build
ings throughout the District, and the teach
ers have all been assigned to their respec
tive statigns. Each year there are a num
ber of changes in the large teaching corps,
but in the main the teachers will again go
over the fields with which they are so fa
miliar and through which they so ably con- r
duct the little men and women of the com- -
munity. Cards of admission have been is
sued by the thousands during the past
week. The children who have been to
school before, take on new duties this fall
as a result of promotions to the next higher
grade. A few in each section remain behind
their comrades to make up the delinquen
cies of the last season. These have a new
determination to do their best and if pos
sible to overhaul those who now leave them 1
In the kindergartens and in the lowest1
grades of the grammar schools the timid
little boys and girls who are just beginning
their school career will on Monday n.orn
ing make an acquaintance with "'teacher,"1
whom each and every one of them wIll learn 1
to dearly love before the session is a month
At the high schools the graduates of last
June will be missed. But filling out the
rester of each of these institutions will be
the heavy installments from the eight
grades of the graded schools, who are just
beginning their four years of the higher
training granted by the public system.
In the manual training schools, the finest]
and most magnificently equipped institu
tions the city has ever known in its public]
school history, the workers with muscle as<

such as any community might well be
The Authorized Schedule.
The school authorities have made out a
schcdule which It is desired that the clil
dren shall follow Monday morning. It is
important that all the children should be
made acquainted with this schedule, and It

to confer with the director of high schools
at his office In the Central High School on
or before Monday, September 22.
"At the same hour a like examination for

who have been attending the graded schools
of' the city will be p41-mitted to take these

afternoon in the various high school build
ins, where the staffs are being organised
and the work of the school term being map
ped out according to the curriculumn pre
scribed by the board of education. --. 1
The enrollment in the schools - lst year
was In the neighbofilood of 47,060 pupils.
It is estimated that there will this year be
an increase of about 900 pupils. As in

n any public school system. Its cost was
bout $'200,000, and great pains were taken
n each detail of its construction. It is cx
ected that the enrollment here during the
oming term will be close to 400 pupils. The
:ourse is one covering four years, just as
s the cass in the other high schools, for
he manuil training institutions are also
mown as technical high schools and are
lassed on the plane with the higher educa
lonal establishments. There is to be a two
rears' course for boys and girls who are
mnable to take the full course of four years.
The General Armstrong Manfal Training
school, on P street between 1st and 3d
treets northwest, is to the colored children
of the city what the McKinley school is to
he white. The Armstrong school, like the
deKinley, has just been completed and is
is thorough in every respect. Both build
ngs represent the best thoughts of archi
ects interested in school works.
Other New Structures.
Other new school buildings to be occupied
donday are the Emery, a twelve-room
uilding in Eckington; four-room buildings
n Kenilworth and Fetworth; the Morgan,

Lfter the late Thomas B. Morgan, District
ommissioner; Syphax. eight rooms, South

) streets, named after the late William
yphax, school trustee, and the Langston,
ight rooms, on P street, between North
,apitol and 1st streets, named after the
ate John M. Langston. These new build
ngs will provide accommodations for 2,000
nore pupils and will result in doing away
with a number of the half-day schools
vhich were made necessary because of lim
ted space. All the new structures are pro
,ided with modern chairs and desks, which
an be adjustcd to the size of the child.
The Kindergarten System.
The increase of $5,000 in the appropria
ion this year for kindergartens has en
.bled the superintendent to establish two
Lew kindergartens, one in the Emery
Ichool and one in the Morgan. Additional
indergartens will be provided at Langdon,
ongress Heights and Tenleytown. A man
al training school is also to be established
a Tenleytown. A new cooking school will
e installed in the Emery, in Eckington, and
robably at Congress Heights. The old St.
Lnn Church edifice at Tenleytown, pur
hased last year by the government, will be
tted for manual training and the teaching
Congress at its last session appropriated
