PATRONS DAY IN
THE CITY SCHOOLS
Superintendent Fox Preparing
to Arouse More Public
Sentiment.
Superintendent Vox, of the city schools,
lia? prepared the following Instructions
to tho school officers of the city, and
tliey havo bee_ adopted by a subcom?
mittee? from tho board:
"An important step for popularizing
th? public schools Is to arouse the In?
f?rait of tho patron/-?. This would begin
naturally, by Interesting thorn In tho
buildings to which they send their chil?
dren. ' This can be done most rend_ly,
perhaps, by offering tho patrons speclaJ
opportunities for visiting the schools to
which their children go, and by spec al
work for their entertainment. The estab?
lishment of some form of "patrons' day"
Is, therefore, much to be desired.
"Tho board wlshos you, accordingly?
0) "To ?mphasiza the fact that the
schools are open to visitors at all times,
and Invite parents to attend whenever
It suits them.
(2) "Glvo general Invitation?Instruct
pupils to Invito their parents to visit the
school at any time. Probably a fow will
come at a time, ? and tho principal can
show them around.
(3) "Every week to select one of your
rooms for such exhibition, to, bo used
In the forenoon and In the afternoon of
different days. Notify tho> children
this room several days In advance that
they Invite ana. urge their parents to
visit their school on the day designated
and within the specified hours. Continue
this until all the schools havo been visit?
ed, then begin ngaln at the beginning,
though tho same ordor need not neccs
?sarlly be followed. Make this a regular
weekly exercise.
'"Meantime, let the teacher make prepa?
ration for the day by arranging In pleas?
ing' form specimens of the pupils' work,
so that they can bo readily seen, and
also be prepared to exhibit the regular
grade work In her most skillful manner,
"Do not permit tho teachers to devote
too much Unie to making preparation for
entertainment, but allow the visitors to
see the real work of tho school.,
"The principals and teachers will thus
have an opportunity of meeting tholr
patrons .and, by their consideration and
courtesy, remove difficulties and pro?
duce favorable impressions."

MOVE FOR REDEMPTION.
The Finance' Committee Adopts
Mayor McCarthy's Plan.
The Finance Commlttoc tho other night
adopted Mayor MoCiirthy's' recommenda?
tion that the annual sum for the redemp?
tion of outstanding bonds be Increased
fifty per cent, in tho budget of next
your.
Hereafter the committee will set aside
a sum equivalent to uno and one-half per
cent. Instead of one per cent, for this
purpose.
In presenting his resolution, the Mayor
said:
"Tho whole argument In favor of this
resolution may be summed' up In tho
statement that the present one per cent,
fund will not redeem our bonds ns they
mature, and the one nnd one-half per
cent, fund will. Tho greater result fully
Justifies this nddltlon to the fund for
redemption, nnd argument would seem
unnessary In a case so plain."

| time a fight will probably be made. The
