D. C. Teacher Has Plan to
I Prepare Foreigners for
American Citizenship.
To further the co-operation charac
teristic of the splendid spirit being
shown by the public schools tlirough
i nut the country in shouldering the
! task of preparing" foreign-born men
' and women to take up the privileges
and duties of American citizenship, ?
Washington teacher in the citizenship!
classes has evolved a unique method t
of making the work attractive.
In order to impart both knowledge I
of the English language and sound I
principles of loyalty her plan is to J
bring tin- applicants for citizenship in
i direct contact with the business
i house and markets with which they
i will have to deal later.
French War Brides Enjoy Market.
Yesterday she was seen chaperoning
three blushing French war brides
through the Center market, and from
the animation displayed by the
charges in her care it was evident
they were enjoying the novel experi
ence
Aside from the desire to make the
I money, of their soldier husbands go as
I f;ir as possible, which is traditional of
I their race, the young French women
st imed most anxious to learn the names
I of produce from eggs to cabbage, to ac
custom themselves with what change |
they should expect in the unfamiliar j
new coin, find out where they could get i
the best measure?and what words were
best suited to cajole the market men
into giving them the best, an art they
didn't need to be taught.
2.300 Systems Co-Operate.
There are more than twenty-three
hundred school systems throughout the
country that are co-operating with the
division of citizenship training of the
Department of Labor in its efforts to
have instruction in the language and
laws of the country made clear to the
immigrant.
The public schools, aided by the gov
ernment, are doing all in their power to
educate the new arrivals in their duties
to the country, and from the success
already attained by the Washington
teacher and her method of marketing, in
the future it may be become the cus
tom for the newly arrived foreign wom
an to do her first marketing under the
chape ronage of a canny American
woman.

Philadelphia Magistrate Decides
Blue Laws Are Not Violated.
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., November 7.?
A police magistrate, after pondering
ten days over the question, has de
cided that-air flying on Sunday does
not violate the Pennsylvania blue
laws of ]794.
"Birds fly on Sunday," he concluded, j
"and I therefore do not see how the I
law is violated by a birdman who runs !
an air taxicab on the Sabbath."
Lieut. John C. Howard, the airman,
was prosecuted two weeks ago on a
charge of violating the blue laws by
accepting money for carrying pas
sengers on Sunday.
THEIR HUMAN SIDE
BY WILL P. KENNEDY.
Ill
The very first contested election |
case in Congress was that of the mer
curial Gen. James Jackson against
the eccentric Gen. Anthony Wayne,
"the hairbrained hero of the revolu
tion," according to a statement in
the House by Representative Robert
Luce of Massachusetts, a member of
the elections committee. He quoted |
from Kisher Ames showing that when <
Gen. Jackson addressed the House
he "bellowed so loudly that it was
necessary for the Senate to shut the
windows in order to keep out the
din "
Representative Luce pointed out
that l>y unanimous vote Wayne was ;
unseated. A long debate followed, in i
which Jackson urged that the votes
of certain counties should be reject
ed. On the question of seating Jack
son tile Speaker's vote made a tie
and the seat was declared vacant.
Representative Luce reminded his col
leagues that In the next year Gen.
Wayne was made general of the Army
of the United States and departed tor
the memorable campaign against the .
Indians of the northwest, and Gen. \
Jackson became the governor of his
state and later United States senator.
Mr. Cannon Honors Gen. McCain
It is an open secret among members
of Congress that they do not be
lieve Maj. Gen. H. P. McCain was
given a square deal when he was re
lieved as adjutant general of the War j
Department and sent to Camp Devens.
When members 6f Congress were pre
senting Gen. McCain with a souvenir
of their appreciation of his war-time
services former Speaker Cannon paid
the following notable tribute:'
"I would rather have lived the life
he has lived and performed the serv
ice to the republic that he has per
formed than to have been Speaker of
the House of Representatives, to have
been a* member of the Senate or to
have had a four-year term as Presi
dent of the United States."
Mr. Cannon Called an 'Institution.'
Champ Clark, the other grand old
man of the House, on the same, oc
casion introduced former Speaker
Cannon as an "institution." He said:
"I suppose there Is not a man or
woman of the slightest intelligence
in all the broad confines of the re
public who would not recognize him
if you were to stand him up on a
stump anywhere in the United States,
and he deserves that great compli
ment.
"Now Uncle Joe is not egotistical.
I think he is a very modest man when
you consider what he has done and
what he has been through?still in
the bloom of his youth and beauty?
but somehow he has almost ceased to
be an individual in public esteem and
he has become a great national in
stitution."
New School in Portland.
There is a- school without a truant
officer out in Portland, Ore., which is
represented in Congress by Representa
tive Clifton Nesmith McArthur. Be
fore he became a lawyer, secretary to
the governor, speaker of the state legis
lative assembly and then representative
he got good training as a newspaper
reporter. So he knows news when he
sees it, and so has been telling his

colleagues about this new kind of a
school which has no truant officer, gives
no degrees and is attended by young
and old, college graduate as well as
many who didn't go through high school.
It is not a large school, only thirty
six at last reports. They meet once a
week for intensive course in grain grad
ing because they are interested in grad
ing grain under federal standards.
Among the students are grain dealers,
dock superintendents and foremen and
state grain men. There is a senior

the course for some time and a "rookie"
class for the new recruits.
BELIEVE NEW PROCESS
WILL REPLACE PRINTING
Two New Yorkers Discuss Outlook.
One Sees Passing of All Type
Composition.
NEW YORK, November 7.?Perfec
tion of a process to take the place of
printing and engraving is predicted
as a direct result of labor difficulties
in the publishing business here, by
Roger W. Allen, former president of
the New York Business Publishers'
Association, while John Adams Thay
er, secretary of the Periodical Pub
lishers' Association, predicted that
new machinery soon would do away
with all type composition.
Inventors have been busy on new
devices and combining the uses of
old ones, said Mr. Allen. The maga
zines will not look to the uninitiated
particuUirly different from issues for
merly produced, he added.
"The '.vacations' indulged in by the
compositors have brought to light
certain automatic typographic ma
chines which do away with all type
composition," said Mr. Thayer. "Manjr
hundred patents involving this proc
ess, called 'planographic printing,"
have been obtained and millions of
dollars have been spent in experi
ments."
Mr. Thayer said that the new
process gives greater speed, as both
sides of the paper may be printed
simultaneously. A saving of frj&m 30
to 50 per cent of the average cost of
printing will be effected by the piano
graphic method, it is estimated.
Referring to the resumed activities
of various publications, .Mr. Thayer
said more magazines were appearing
on the newstands daily.
