Local Agents COUNTRY OUTDOfS CITY IN SPELLING RUNS UP BETTER SCORES Normal Subjects 500 Rural Schools to Tests—Urges State Stage Big Spelling Bee. City or town schools in Arkansas with all clue propriety may doff their hats to rural or one-teacher schools in j the rural sections as being superior spellers. Like tests to which both classes of public schools in Arkansas were subjected reveal that the sup posedly weaker institutions show to better advantage than the more pre tentious ones in the cities and towns. The tests were made by county super intendents of 50 counties, who selected ten schools in their respective areas, subjected their pupils to the tests and forwarded the results to the Arkan sas State Normal, under the super vision of which the measurements! were attempted. Prof. C. C. Denney, director of the education measurement and standard bureau, who summarized the results, finds in the tests ground for the be lief that Arkansas as a state can move forward educationally by expending more upon the rural schools. Hereto fore, Mr. Denney says, the one-teach er school has been more tolerated than encouraged, a condition which should be remedied by providing longer terms, more extensive equip ment and better trained teachers. As to the failing of many schools to register high in spelling ability, the local educator thinks that some of the fault may be traced to unsuit able textbooks. He suggests instead that Ayres' standard scale, which was used in all of the tests, be substituted for the commonly used spellers. “The spelling scale from which this of words was taken,” he states, “con tains 1,505 words that investigation shows to be the most often used. Any person that learns to spell the entire list can spell by far the larger num ber of words that are in common use. It seems to me that this list of words should be posted in every school room in the state. The world is full of spelling books and spelling books are full of wordds that simply-strike some compiler’s fancy, but the Ayres’ list , comprises words which investigation proves are in actual use bv the peo ple.” The 500 rural schools in which the tests were given ran up averages high er than those set on the official stand ards. This is accountable to the fact that the county superintendents prob ably selected their ten best schools, the averages as a consequence show ing what may be done rather than what is being actually done in all schools. Coming as they do from 50 counties and representing the compo site work of 500 schools, the averages may be taken as fair indications of what is being accomplished in common school education throughout the state. In concluding his summary, Mr. Denney ventures the opinion that a big spelling campaign couldl well be launched in all schools. County su perintendents could exercise supervis ion over their respective areas, and the highest averages compiled by the highest ranking schools could be sub mitted to the State Normal for deter mination of the winner. Such a cam paign would not only work for profi ciency in spelling, but would stimulate pupils to the mastery of other com mon school branches. Compared with 1921, the Arkansas averages for the present tests are slightly lower. Harder words were included in the Ayres’ scale and as a consequence the pupils did not show so well. Grouped in separate columns for town and country, and with the Ayres’ scale for comparison, grades in Arkansas schools from the second to the eighth inclusive ran up the following averages: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Rural _75 71 64 70 77 66 74 Town _67 70 58 63 63 59 65 Ayres’ _.66 66 66 66 66 66 66 REVIVAL SERVICES BY DR. WHITTINGTON Revival services under the auspices of the Second Baptist church will be opened here on Sunday, June 11, by Dr. Otto Whitington, pastor of the First Baptist church of Little Rock and former pastor of the c hurch here. The assistance of Dr. Whitington as a revival leader is very much in de mand over the state, and the local congregation was fortunate in secur ing him for even so distant a time. Further announcements in regard to the revival effort will be made from time to time. It will be held either at the courthouse or under a tent placed somewhere on the east side. MEN’S FORUM. — “What Constitutes a Square Deal?" is the subject for discussion at our meeting tomorrow morning at 9:45 o'clock. Prof. B. W. Torreyson will lead in the discussion. A large num ber of Conway men are finding this a very profitable and pleasant way to spend an hour on Sunday morn ing. Suppose you try it tomorrow. | H. Krieger, President. COLE AGAIN RULES HEAVY OTBOOTER’ NEGRO GETS MAXIMUM I - Ed Beard Apprehended with “Corn" in His Possession—Ruse Fails to Deceive Officers. Ed Beard, negro, at one minute last night was gaily whist’ing or sing ing; the next minute he was flat on his back begging for mercy and not so long afterward was facing Mayor W. D. Cole and had in his possession the sentence of $1,000 as a fine and 90 days as a jail term, both of which replaced the quart of whiskey which Police Officer Walter Henry and John Durham found in his possession. Today Beard is in jail. He was porter at a local barber shop. Mayor Cole this afternoon in a statement to the Log Cabin Demo crat said that Beard was not fined and sentenced simply for having in his possession the quart of “corn” whiskey which the officers confiscat ed, The whiskey, he said, was taken rather as evidence of persistent traf fic in liquor, possibly over a long period of time. The mayor stated that suspicion had been directed at Bear for at least one year, but last night was the first time it was pos sible to catch him. Probably the worst suspicion directed at Beard was that his sales were not limited to per manent residents of Conway. Officers Henry and Durham laid and pulled the trap which caught Beard. He was seen to leave town with the fruit jar, wrapped in a paper cover, under his arm. He was followed and the trap set when he left an automobile, the driver of which escaped, and entered the ilne between North Front and Spencer streets just north of Mill. One of ficer was stationed at either end of the lane. Three negroes were first surprised by Officer Henry when he entered the lane. No contraband was found when they were searched, and the of ficer told them to remain exactly in the position and place they were, under penalty of being shot if they moved. It was just here that Beard came on to the scene, singing joy fully and with the fruit jar plainly visible. Officer Henry arose from his place of concealment and started toward Beard, who immediately broke into a run, bumping into Ullicer Durham almost before he was settled down to I his best speed. He dropped to the ground at the sight of Durham, tossed the fruit jar into the lot facing on; the lane and forthwith broke into j fervent pleas for mercy. He was j taken into custody, and Officers Dur-j ham and Henry returned to the place where the three negroes had been left. So far as close scrutiny could disclose, not one of the trio had in I the least altered his position. They were released. Up to this afternoon, Beard had made no move for appeal if he is en-j titled to hearing in citcuit court. The; fine and sentence imposed upon him, if served out at the legal rate of pay, would equal a sentence of 1,090 days in jail or five days short of three full years. The negro was arraigned by Mayor Cole immediately after the arrest. He made no denial of the charge brought against him. The quart of whiskey shown by the mayor to the crowd which quickly assembled at Greeson's was the object of much in terest. Decisions of the municipal court, Mayor Cole said, involving the sale, transportation or possession of whisk ey are not based upon the amount of liquor concerned. In Beard’s and in other cases, his decisions have been governed rather by the evidence of persistent violations of the law, of which the captured contraband is taken merely as evidence.
