THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, PHOENIX, TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 6, 1921. NIGHT SCHOOL MEN KEPT THEIR JOBS Men who attended the night school -or shopmen at Clifton were not among- the number who were released whn the mines shut down, according to -M. I -Doner, director of vocational education, who returned yesterday from a. jsurvey of the work In the Clifton-Morencl district. No better evidence could be given of what the vocational schools are doing for the men than the fact that not a single one was discharged at a time when men were let out by the wholesale. "Only one Jn the class left the mine employment and he did it to accept a better position elsewhere," said Mr. Doner. Brilliant Writers Act In This Play, But .

HIGH SCHOOL LIFE By Ida McDaniel Progress and revision of Ideals go hand in hand, Mr. E. K. Winship says in his Journal of Education: Nowhere in the school system 1st there greater progress than in sec ondary schools and nowhere is there so little publicity. The reason for this Is primarily that high school teachers flock by subjects." Not until the year 1911 when, over flowing from the cramping eonfines of the old brick building, the Phoe nix Union high school filled Imme diately the three new buildings, did the school have departments recog nized as such, up to that time th ideal of specialization was not real ized. It was nc t unuaual for one teach er to Instruct in three, four or ven five subjects. Then the teacher's eligibility foi a position meant a ca pacity to functic or rather a willing ness to function In any vacant nook or corner of the curriculum. Now th ideal teacher Is well trained for work In a special department and an ap plicant's claim to ability in too many lines minimuzes his, chance of election. In this connection, Mr. Winship also remarks that a teacher should select the game he will play and then be sure that he knows the latest rules of the game. ad that he has the latest signals. For acquiring these signals there are numerous profes sional journals specializing in the work of all departments which, to gether with the opportunities offered by unlversit. summer sessions, aid In shaping the ideals of the modern teacher. Thirty years ago there were only 300,000 boys ind girls in high school in this country. The curriculum was necessarily limited. Today the num ber of pupils In high school has reached the 2,000 000 mark, which proves that the early ideal of a free. higher education has become Jthe re The present curriculum of the Phoe nix Union h'fh school presents a gratifying array of subjects. It af fords the bov or girl greater oppor tunities for responsibility and initia tive and asidt- frm other advantages, it modifies the problems of discipline of former days by offering the pupil greater and more useful outlets for his irrepressible energy. rhe addition of new depnrttments and accessory activities aside from the three R s, enables the pupil to ac- qu te information according to his Inclination and capacity, to cultivate his artistic tendencies, to improve physically, tr ass'niilate social and civic ideals, through increased oppor tunity foi social contact with his fel lows, fo, as Emerson said, ' it is not the school that educates, it is the schoolmate. A university president Is quoted as saying that the American school and college are inferior today to those which existed a generation ago. Another educator of note answered him by saying: 'Yes, just as the ox team was beHer than the motor truck and the automobile." By the same analogy the question of demeanor may be approached. There were no automobiles a few years ago, but there were some very spirited horses. Just as science has changed and developed our mechan ical utilities so has there been change In social " practices. Nor are these changes limited to the social life of high school pupils. There have been alterations in the social code of adults as welL Perhaps not all of these changes are what should be de sired, but critical observers may do well to remember that offenders are always more conspicuous than non offenders and that the number of pu pita who discredit their high school's Ideals is certainly no greater now than at any former time, and that the ideals behind a h'gh school some tlmess suffer from outside influences.

The construction of 200 miles of paved "highway will make - Maricopa County a leader among progressive com munities. ' , The money to be spent in this work is your m3ney. You want this money to -be spenLwisely. Therefore you' are vitally in terested in the qualifications of a good pavement ;: - - A good pavement must have durability so that it will withstand the impact of heavy traffic through a long - period of .time, without deterioration. ... . A good pavement must be reasonable in initial cost, so that the largest mileagecon sistent with proper thickness and width of pavement, can be built with the money available. A good pavement must have a negligi ble amount of upkeepor maintenance cost so that public inconvenience and expense caused by repairs will hot be present. The Asphaltic Concrete .type base and surface combines all of these good quali ties. Furthermore, it can be used within 24 hours after it is laid. Asphaltic Concrete has proved itself the ideal pavement, by years of successful servicennder conditions of traffic arid climate similar to Arizona. These qualities must be considered in deciding the type of pavement for Mari ,copa County's new highways. Asphaltic Concrete assures satisfaction.
