that while the committee was seeking

When the committee assembled last

Will Invite F.xpcrts..
"The School Board has asked the
committee to call experts to testify
as to our school system." paid nr.
Chandler. 'The attack so "far has
been made upon the curriculum and
time allotment. On the general prin?
ciples of the curriculum. I desire you
to hear from Dr, Claxton. He has
studied school systems all over the
country, and has worked In schools
In North Carolina and Tennessee, and
is familiar by personal experience
with Southern conditions He has ex?
amined the Bchools of the United
States and of Germany, and his opin?
ion on what should be in the cur?
riculum should be of vnltic. I ulso
ask the committee to invite fir Updo
giaff. who has made a careful study
of time allotments in all parts of this
country, and did the special and
crucial work of the inve?tlcallon com?
mittee appointed to look into the sys?
tem of education of the public srhools
of Baltimore. 1 nm sure he would he
able to give Interesting facts about
the t'me allotments and methods of
instruction of the various grades."
Mr. Umlauf, of the committee,
favored the formal invitation of both
of thv experts suggested. proposing
that the Council be asked to appro
pii.it- sufficient funds for the culling
?>f Filch witnesses. After discussion
l>r. Chandler agreed to communicate
with both official! on the understand?
ing that the committee will hold a
special meeting nt any time that
? ither or both may come to Richmond.
Satindcm Takes stund.
Before taking the stand himself. Jlr.
chandler put on Principal Joseph II.
Sounders, of ihe William F. Fox
School, on Hanover Avenue. whom
Chairman Pollock had declined to call
nt a previous session when witnesses
for the Elementary Tenchers' Associa?
tion were being hen id.
After relating Ills experience of
sixte.n years with the public iehosla
of Virginia, in Portsmouth, Norfolk
county, und as State examiner, Mr.
Sounders went into an elaborate com?
parison of the time allotment he? as I
compared with a dozen or more of,
the larger cities, the schools of w-nicn
have a high standing. All of these
cities, he had found, taught manual
training, music, drawing and physi?
cal exercises, alir) ., majority of them
give more time to such subjects than
Is now given lift.-. Taking the gen?
eral average, he found that these cities
give less time than in Richmond to
arithmetic, about tho same to rend?
ing und more to writing. In the St.
Louts schools which lie had visited,
he testified, tho same physlcla] cul?
ture and manual tra'n'ng courses
were used. The manual training ho
cous'dered not too dilllcult for the
children in tlic various grades, us
some teachers, had testified, but ho
thought Homo of the exercises hard
on the teachers, requiring too much
time for preparation outside of school
hours. After discussing nt some
'. length the t'tne allotment reports of
i a number of cities, he. summarised
the general average as having more
time for writing than In the Rich?
mond CSchools, about the same for
reading and spelling, and less time
tliari Richmond now devotes to In?
struction in ar'tlimctlc.
Sayn Iti-port ls False.
Mr. Sounders was closely cross
questioned for nearly an hour by
Chairman Bollock. Mr, Sounders
characterized as "absolutely ialse." the
report which had come to the cars
of the Chairman that he had said on
one occasion that if lie had the selec?
tion Of teachers, those who had ap?
peared as Witnesses before, the ln

The committee rose to meet next
Thursday night, after Superintendent
Chandler had urged that the Investi?
gation be pressed more rapidly to a
conclusion. It had been dragging
along for three months, he Stated,
with meetings about once In ten days,
working a great Injustice to the
teachers, principals and hchool Board,
