lie or she really has become a skilled
worker. "Glove,makihg is already taught in the schools and one of our own girls is a teacher. You can readily see, therefore, the necessity of combining the teaching of this branch, we will say, with the; imparting of knowledge of the wages which glove workers re ceive, and we are hoping it will not be long before everyone recognizes it." Then Miss Anderson smiled that slow, hopeful smile she sometimes wears. ''It's bound to come," she added "And they can call it what- they please, we do not care, so long as it is taught." o o KOHLSAAT STEALS A MARCH ON GEORGE HINMAN Herman H. Kohlsaat, present boss of the Inter-Ocean, stole a march on George Wheeler Hinman, former boss, and got himself appointed fed eral receiver for the Inter-Ocean. The appointment of a receivership for the paper grew oyt of the suit for $92,252 filed by Hinman against. Kohlsaat. This money is the unpaid balance of a note given September, 1912, for $177,500. After the filing of the suit Kohl saat apparently smelled something in the air, for shortly afterward Att'y Levy Mayer, representing a friendly creditor, applied to Federal Judge Carpenter for the appointment of Kohlsaat as receiver. They were just in time, for a min ute later Att'y Lewis E. Hart, rep resenting Hinman, applied to Judge Baldwin, Circuit Court, for the ap pointment of a receiver. Hinman wanted R, J. Mooney, his former as sociate in the publication of the Inter-Ocean, as receiver. Kohlsaat gave $15,000 bonds as re ceiver. In a statement on the front page this morning the Inter-Ocean says that the present complication merely grew out of the litigation, regarding the revaluation of the ground oc cupied by the Inter-Ocean. It also says that the change will have no effect on the conduct of the paper. Kohlsaat said the rent of the Jfiter Ocean property has been raised from $14,500 a year to $40,000 a year by the Charles T. Yerkes estate. TEACHERS READY TO FIGHT The school-board is not going to saddle the 12-months-a-year idea on the schoolteachers and get away with it. Right now the board is' consider ing: either increasing the school day, so as to extend from 9 a. m to 5 or 5:30 p. m., or either haye an entire year's term. And all this work they, propose to shove on the teachers without in creas their salaries. The teacherSare prepared to fight and are putting up the following arguments: That a school day lasting from 9 o'clock in the morning until 5 or 5:30 o'clock in the evening would be so tiresome to a growing child that the average boy or girl would gain noth ing in educational advantages by the longer day, which also would be a menace to the child's health. That the summer vacation is abso lutely essential to the health and wel fare not only of the pupils but of the teachers as well. That the teachers now are under paid and that this additional work, for which they would receive no ad ditional compensation, would be an imposition. HE'D TREAtYhMSELF "If you had, say $500,000,000, would you build libraries or start colleges?" "Neither. I'd have meat three times a day." ' H o o Hand the cake to Surgeon Frank Lydston- of Chicago.
