WOMEN NOT QUICK
TO LEARN FIGURES Atfchrnetic Comes Easier to Men, Who Teach It More Successfully. INQUIRY STILL GOING ON Several Hours Devoted to Dis? cussion, but No End Is Yet in Sight. Investigation of the curriculum In the public schools dragged along for ?everal hours last night, two princi? pals put on as witnesses at the Instanco of tho Elementary Ten. hers' Associa? tion coming out as strong supporters 01 the present methods of conducting the schools. Algar VVoolfolk, prlncl sal of Sprlngileld School, who had been partially examined at n former bearing, resumed the stand, and on cross-uxamiuatlon by Chairman Huts ler, of the School Hoard, said Unit he considered supervision by specialists In various subjects very necessary, lie btuted that if the teachers had the funds to take summer normal courses nnu prepare themselves properly t<>' teach manual training and similar subjects, they would und their work less irksome, and such courses would result in greater benefit to the pupils. .Mr. Woolfolk shtd thut arithmetic usually came easier to men than to women, ami for that reason it might be mote difficult for women leucher*"to successfully teach the course in arith? metic in the higher grade. Where It IMuclieS. In answer to the testimony of sev-! erul elementary teachers who had stal? ed that the time allotted fur teaching! arithmetic was not eulticicnt, be sulu that for a ten-year-old child of nor-' mal development, the Spending of as: much as an hour und a half a day In arithmetic would be a wast of time, tlie mind ol a .child not being able to continue for so long a period on one, subject without fatigue, which would nieun not only n waste of n portion of the arithmetic period, out would prove it handicap In the teaching of succeed? ing classes for that day. The present time allotment he considered all right. l'ana H, H?cker, principal Of Stone? wall Jackson School, considered the time allotment sufficient f r the sub? jects taught If in the hands of Compu? tern teachers. The teachers In bis School he considered entirely compe? tent to handle tho subjects In lite time I given them. Contradicting several of] the teachers, he thought sufficient time Was now allow,.,) for supervised writ-! ing. am) gave it as Iiis Judgment that the 7-H pupils were now ns well pie pared to enter the high school us they' were ten years ago. lie would not eliminate any of the Bo-called nones scutlals, and did not think too much time was given to I hem. lie thought! the. results obtained from instruction in music, and manual training were commensurate with the tlmo devoted to them, the children oclng better able to do their other work because of such, exercises. How He Would Decide. The movement In tho physical cul? ture course he thought very good, but It had not yet been In use long enough for the pupils to get the full bencllt ,,i the physical development intended by Mich exercises. Only in the past year, he said, had he been converted to the group system of teaching. When first Introduced he bad feared it would wriili a hardship <>n the teneheds. If given Ii? choice, between the position of principal of a school, nil of the] teachers of which wer? of tho older school, teaching only >i*hAl are known as the essential branches, and n school tally equipped with modem appliances end with n cor*ps of teachers fully trained in tho newer methods of in? struction, he "would unquestionably tak? the latter Joslllon, H<- empraslz take the latter position, lie emphasis rrs in certain special subjects was Very necessary to their successful In "Berry's lor Clothes' Strono liciht and dnrk effects In business suits, $20 and $23.

CHICAGO Republicans Say That Is All Black-and-Tan Convention Can OlTer. NOT REGARDED SERIOUSLY Roosevelt Followers Will Control Mass-Meeting in Richmond on Thursday. While the black-and-tan are her? alding their intention to reclolhe tho Republican party in Virginia with the democracy of which it was bereft In Roanoke at their convention on Thurs? day night, tlie rank and flic of the organized Republicans are quietly laughing up their sleeves. To a num? ber of the Roanoke leaders the whole affair appears In the light of all up? roarious farce staged by u disgruntled minority und paid for by campaign directors north of tho -Mason and I'ixon line, who ought to know bet? ter. '.Not even the wildest flight of im? agination." said a United Slates oill ctul who stands high in the party's councils in the State, "could ilnd Jus llllcatlou for this so-called 'convention-' It la founded upon no legitimate griev? ance against tho majority, and has not the slightest claim for recogni? tion from the National Committee. Sil)? itejolt Is Ill-Timed . 'In order to be considered at nil seriously, the leaders behind this con? vention should have tiled their pro. test at the Roanoke meeting." contin? ued the same authority. "As a matter of fact, no revolutionary negro faction made Itself known at that conven? tion, nor any White faction for that matter. The Roanoke meeting was regularly called by tho National Com? mittee, and proper notice was served upon the Republicans >j tho State.! Thore was plenty of time between the calling and actual holding of the con? vention to hatch Up and develop any ; Insurgent movement, but the meeting! passed off peaceably and without j squabble or contest." "Nothing on earth can prevent a| body of men ,,f whatever political! faith from announcing that they will hold a political meeting for tho pur-1 post of electing delegates to a na- I tional convention. Melting these dele- ] gates recognised and stated Is a far different thing. As far as 1 urn con? cerned, I see no chance on earth for j tuch delegates as may be named by | this black-and-tan conventoln to re-j ccivc recognition from the National Committee, n? matter what presiden? tial candidates may lie in the asci n dancy by the time the national con? vention is ready to meet." Not Kept Out In .Norfolk To the charge made by the negroes that the Norfolk city convention was ! purposely held in a building from j which they were debarred by law be- j cause of their color, the party leaders' reply that the statement Is not In [ acceirdance with the facts. The meet? ing in Norfolk, it is claimed, was held In a public auditorium, to which every cttl7.cn, regardless of color, had access, but the black-atld-tsns chose volun? tarily to slay away. "We are used lo tills sort of thing." said another Republican leader laet| night, commenting on the meeting to be held Thursday, "It Is with tu every four years. They tried the same thing In 1S0S. The fact Is that there Is always a certain amount of money floating around loose duping election time, and a certain number of Indl Vlduals who are ready to embark upon any scheme whatever which promises excitement ami notoriety. Nothing Doing In Chicago. "1 don't care to be quoted,' con t'nued the speaker, "but if you want my opinion of the affair. I'll say frankly that I look upon it as an out and out farce. The most thai next Thursday night's delegates can hope to get out of their new honors, ? la a free tr p 10 Chicago. If they ar lucky they will get visitors' seats in the gallery." In the opinion of l it. Pollard and other loadears of the black-and-tan movement, their delegation will stand a good chanco of being seated should tho Roosevelt fa. tion have the upper hand at Ch'cago. Thursday's con? vention will be frankly for the Colonel. Thu idea Is discredited by tho organized Republicans, who point out that oven should a contest be brought before the national oommit teo, It will be sottled a week or two | before the convent'on meets. Notice Of contest In order to be admitted, must bo fllod before May 29. The national committee will meet Juno fi to adjust all disputes, nnd lo Issue i credentials to tho accredited delegates! for the national convention which ! take place .lune 18. AVhether somfo artfully concealed i campaign fund has sprung aleak in Virginia and roused a handful of mal? contents to a defence of th"ir down trodden liberties, or whether the movement Is really a bona fide at? tempt on the part of a lighting minor? ity to effect a. more equitable repre? sentation, will In the natural course, of events, never be known. Only two or three thlnrrs seem certain. The black-and-tnns will meet n n sure enough convention Thursday night In the City Auditorium, and a limited number of colored men are due to get free trips to Chicago.
