"Railroads should receive consid

unnecessary expense. Railroads are a
big factor in the financial status of the

justly." Asked whether the country
was looking better from a financial
standpoint, Mr. Taft said:
"That confidence which means real
prosperity Is not yet in sight. We
hope for better things, but no one can
tell when our hopes will be realized.
Governmental stringency is not a good
thing"—and then he smiled.
Ex-President Tfat was busy prepar

Consul General Skinner's message
"Green. Master of American steam- i
er Nebraskan, in wireless address to
me, via London, reports:
" 'Nebraskan passed Fastnet Rock
Tuesday 4.32 p. m.; from Liverpool
bound for Delaware Breakwater in i

Immediately took to boats. ,
" 'After standing by ship one hour '

occurred. Flag had been hauled down |1
five minutes before. Steamer's name i

saw nothing."" ]
Ambassador Page sent the following <
"Admiralty have reported from 1

appears to have been less than on the ,
occasion of the last raid.
Some reports say that two Zeppe
lins took part in the raid. It is. how- ,
ever, impossible to give the number
! accurately because of the heavy clouds
through which the moon shone but
i dully at the time of the attack.
The noise of the propellers of the'
airships was first heard shortly be-1
fore 11 o'clock. Then came at once
the shock of the explosions as the |
bombs rained down from above. Some
of the missile* were incendiary and
threw out bright flares of light.
Crowds assembled in the streets of
South End to view the raiders. The
only fatality, the killing of Mrs. Fa
bin. occurred while the woman was
leaving a street car. It. Is recalled that
on the previous raid the only victim
was a woman.
British aeroplanes went up in pur

cessful In overtaking them. Some
time later two Zeppelins were seen |

to the northeast of South End, but no]
more bombs were dropped. f

WILL ONE OF THESE SOMEDAY OCCUPY THE WHITE HOUSE?
Hb M j^Tjl
Here are the honor students and officers of the class of 1915, Steelton high school.
For the last time this evening they wlf. climb the hill to the high school—as students. For at. the thirty
first annual commencement exercises they will receive their diplomas. Look at them closely, for perhaps one
among the smiling group may someday be a leader in business, in art, in literature or even an occupant of
the White House. Who knows? For they're the finished product of the American school system.
From left to right in the above photograph are: Front row—Miss Norma Brandt, class secretary; Miss
Marie Alleman, Miss Lucetta McElheney, valedictorian: Miss Mildred Griffee. Miss Margaretta Gault and Miss
Rebecca Millar. Second row—James Tolbert, Myles Morrison, class president; Paul Kirbv, William Crump,

PUPILS MIKE IW
WTf ART IBTICLES

Color Schemes For Their
"What a beautiful set of lace cur
tains! Why I never knew your courses
led to the making of such useful
things. Did your pupils really make
"Why certainly they did, and you |
know, everything they make Is plan-1
ned to fill sorno personal service or
for some definite place in the home."
This was the quiet, one might al
most say proud, reply of Miss Eva F.
Stoner, supervisor of art and drawing
in the Steelton schools, to the incredul
ous query of a visitor whom she was
showing about the big exhibit of art
articles made by her pupils—the girl
students in Steelton High school.
The curtains which caused the vfsl
tor's comment were a neat pair of
"squared net" lace hangings covering
one of the windows In the btp room in
which the exhibit was held. They were
in an original design and if purchased
in a store wou.ld cost probably sl2.
They were made by one of the girl
pupils for her own home.
With Interest aroused by skill ex
hibited in the making of the curtains,
the visitor moved through the big
room, his wonder increasing as he
was shown the almost unending list of
articles for the home made by the
pupils. And the keynote of the entire
work impressed one as being "practl
bility." Everything, as Miss Stoner
aptly described It, was designed for
some definite place In the home or
for the personal servlca of the stu
W r hen the pupils first undertake
their course in art and drawing in the
Steelton high school they are taught
to make simple sketches of leaves
and flowers. Simple designs for bord
ers and table runners are the next les
sons that the girls must learn.
Just as soon as the student Is able
to draw simple designs, she Is taught
how to apply these designs to prac
tical use. Table runners, dollies, cur
tains and bags of all kinds are stamp
ed. The motif is always drawn from
nature and many pretty designs are
soon drawn by the pupils with ease.
Ater this simple designing work is
mastered the pupils are taught how to
use brushes and simple colors. In all
the work in the high school course
only three colors are used; red, yellow
and blue. From these "primary" col
ors every tint "In the rainbow, and
many that were never there, are evol
ved. Practically all the painting is
done on dark paper and the various
colors the made opaque by mixing
white paint with the tints desired. Af
ter the pupils master the use of brush
es they take up perspective drawing.
This about completes their study of.
the fundamentals in art.
Study Color Harmony
Next the pupil studies color har
mony. Tt Is during this part of the
course that the teacher is given the
oportunity to drive home some good,
practical ideas about dress and home
decorations. The girls are required
to sketch pictures of dresses that har
monize In their colors. The proper
shades for the various occasions are
also studied. Just what effect this
part of the course has upon the dress
of the pupils would be hard to esti
mate. Practically every teacher in the
high school, however, declares that the
taste of the pupils, as exhibited in
their v dress, has Improved wonderfully
since this course has been Inaugurat
ed. There are no "new-fangled" ideas
nor fancy suggestions drilled into the
pupils here but just good, practical,
common-sense Ideas about what colors
will harmonize in dress and what will
not. In a town like Steelton. where
there Is a large foreign population
with a distorted taste for fancy colors
In dress the value of this work of the
public school can not be over esti
Color in the Home
From harmony of colors in dress the
pupils go to the study of harmonious
color schemes for the home. They are
taught how to take into consideration
the lighting features of the house, the
wall paper scheme and the floor deco
rations along with the small features
that go to making a home homelike.
The girls are taught the value of
small objects in giving a touch of col
or to the home Instead of the flashy
papers, lurid carpets or bright rugs
that are so much in evidence these
The results of this part of the high
school course Is already being re
flected In the homes of the pupils. Tax
payers who at the inauguration of the j
course groaned at the added burdenj
of expense and truculently declared i
that "we didn't have such fool studies i
when we went to school," are now loud |
In their praise. Men who never be
fore were able to see much practical I
results from the money they were ex- j
pending in their daughters' educa
! tion. are now coming into their homes
after the day's work and wonderlnsr
how all the coziness was obtained
without the expenditure of any more
coin on the part of dad.
■Make Any Old Thing
And there are mighty few little
things In the home that the 100 pretty
girl pupils of Miss Stoner aren't taught
how to make. From hand-painted
book covers and post card albums to
expensive lace curtains—everything Is
there. There's card cases for brother'
i—or a classmate's brother —slipper I
I bags for sister or self, dollies, table j
i runners, baskets In varied hues and i
weaves, tooled leather stand pieces, j
handbags and goodness only know*'
what else. In fact the girls learn how i
to make everything small that may'
be used about the home for decora
tive purposes for stenciling, painting,
tooling leather, basket weaving and
tho handling of colors —all have a
place in the course.
School Very Successful
In other words the day Is past when
girls will be forced to spend twelve
or thirteen years In school studying
' the same subjects that the bdys must
study to fit them for the battle of
Hereafter the girls will not be han
dicapped. They will study branches
that will fit. them for their rightful
place in the home —just as for years
past our boys have studied subjects
that would fit them for a place In
business or some mechanical pursuit.
Altogether Steelton's vocational
training for girls is a marked success
—a success that reflects the untiring
| efforts of Miss Eva F. Stoner, as super
visor; C. S. Davis, as principal and L.
E. McGlnne* as superintendent—and
a success that will likely Induce the
school board to undertake the intro
duction of still more vocational work
In the schools.
