Naval Academy at Annapolis, made a fine record In the first ex aminations last week. Only two Kansas appointees passed, Everett and Mr. Pigman of Concordia, both Calderhead appointees. All the other Kansas first year men flunked and have resigned. Mr. Hazlett had the (L0LQ)llD that the state texts' wero used as. a basis for study and that when they were exhausted the supplementary text book was used to keep the child busy. In doing this it waa claimed that the school board had kept with in the law. It was argued that the superintendents and school boards of various cities of the state could use their discretion in selecting books for the use in schools so long as tho state text book was used as a basis. Attorney General John 8. Dawson assisted by Hugh T. Fisher of To peka. argued for the state. Attorney Dawson declared the state text book law did not provide a loop hole ao that the boards could use their dis cretion in the use of school books. The defense admitted that the exact letter of the law had not been lived up to but that the state text books were Insufficient and in order not to sacrifice the welfare of the pupil supplementary texts were used. The school teachers who were put on the stand said the books provided for by law were studied in their classes and that not a thing was omitted from them but that they were com pletely exhausted by the pupils in less than half of the school year. When these books are completed, the teachers say they are accustomed to take up the supplementary works to finish out the work. Superintend ent F. P.
