Would Segregate the
Recommends Bonds of $200,000 for
New Structure, but No Action Is
Tsken — $600,000 Needed
for Schools

ln thcßo words the special committee
of the IjOS Angeles board of education
last night recommended a drastic
change In eo-oducatlon In the high
schools of this city. Although the
recommendation was not pnssed upon,
the fact that three members of the
board and the superintendent of schools
approved of .-mil recommended it points
strongly to the ( erection of such an In
stitution In the near future.
Tho recommendation was th" last of
a series In the report made by a special
committee of the board, consisting of
the finance committee and the superin
tendent of schools. The committee hnd
been appointed at a previous meeting of
the board to devise ways and means of
remedying the growing congestion of
the schools.
ln all, the committee found that $fiOn,
00 would bo required to enlarge the
school system of this city to meet the
needs of a growing population.
ls Idea of Professor Dozler
The idea of a girls' school originated
with Prof. Dozier, and seems to have
met with the hearty approval of his
colleagues on the committee, Messrs.
Frank, Stllson nnd Moore.
Mr. Dozler said last night: "Person
ally I favor separate education of chil
dren of high school age. I believe It to
bc psychologically as well as physio
logically correct* There are many
mothers in this city Who would Kindly
send their daughters to a girls' school
if such an Institution existed."
On the means to be adopted for rais
ing the money, the board could not de
cide. J. M. Gulnn was finally added to
the committee, and the committee was
lnstructed to consult with the board of
supervisors as to the feasibility of rais
ing the amount by a tax levy. They
were Instructed thnt It was the sense of
the board of education that $600,000 is
required for the Immediate needs of the
The resolution as presented "by the
special committee at last night's meet
lng was as follows:
The Resolution
Your special committee, to whom was
referred for report the matter of the.
present condition of school finances and
school needs for the Immediate future,
would report as follows:
1, There are at present seventy-five
schools, about 980 teachers at work, and
ln round numbers 35,000 children In at
tendance. with a total, enrollment of
lttKiui*I IttKiui* 411.W110. " Ny ; »--\ '•* *\» ' ■■ ' v . .'
r<jr2.c> There nrr> at present thirty-three
temporary hulldlnirs. five single rooms,
and two 2-room buildings, or forty-two
rooms that should be replaced with suit
able buildings. In addition to the above
there are five half-day schools now In
session. --
3. Many of the rooms aro greatly
overcrowded, there being at present
sixty rooms with fifty pupils and over.
4. The following new buildings and
additions are needed ns soon as they
can be constructed:
Eight rooms at Engle Rock avenue.
Four rooms at F.dendale.
Eleven rooms In vicinity of Arlington
and Sixteenth streets.
Eleven rooms in vicinity of Jefferson
. street and Western avenue.
Twelve-room addition at West Vcr
non street.
Eleven-room building In annexed sec
tion southwest.
Eleven-room building In vicinity of
Slauson and South Park avenues.
ltleven rooms In southeast, oast of
Fifty-second street school.
Jleven-room annex at East Vernon.
light-room annex nt San Pedro
X Slght-room nnnex at Fourteenth
Eleven-room building In northeast,
| north of Brooklyn avenue and east of
■Cornwall street,, or an 8-room annex
at Cornwell street.
Four-room addition at Bridge street.
. , Four-room addition at Seventh street.
Four-room building at Hostetter
street. / ,
8. School grounds, rooms and equip*
merit foot up not less than $3000 per
room, and the immediate needs call for
at least 130 rooms, necessitating an out
lay of $400,000 for common school pur
, poses, exclusive of an additional high
school. ■-■-•/.
. 6. The only possible ways of raising
money that can be suggested at this
time aro a special levy, an Issue of
school bonds, or the sale of school prop
erty now owned by the city. The only
feasible method seems to be by the is
suance of school district bonds. * '
7. We recommend that the board of
aducatlon proceed at once to call a
bond election in the Los Angeles city
school district for the sum of $400,000
for common school purposes.
8. The high school situation Is such
as to demand very serious attention.
There are now enrolled about icon pu
pils In the high school and about 1700 at
the Polytechnic: high .school. These
numbers are far in excess of the proper
capacity of those schools. It Is sug
gested that an additional high school
bc built, preferably In the south. The
Vicinity Of Fortieth street and FlgUSroa
> street is suggested as a good location
for such building.
9. We recommend that the board of
education proceed at once to . call a
bond elation for $200,000 for the erection
or a girls' high school, to be located in
the south or southwest part of the
city. ,

•■:iiii and done this seems to bo the
humane ami desirable view or a very
grave social subject, and Professor Ad
ler mnkes It plain In his Important con
tribution. The March Woman's Home
Companion also contains "A Talk on
Oood Deeds," by Edward Kverett Hale,
who, with the cheerful view of a re
markable octogenarian, tells his readers
how they can be good by doing good to
others. One of the many strong features
of the March Companion Is a hither
to unpublished drawing by Whistler. it
ls an exquisite example of the groat
master's art, notable for its beauty of
line, wonderful figure drawing and del
icacy of atmosphere, and will appeal
strongly to Whistler's Innumerable ad
mirers. The fascination of unlimited
wealth Is described by Anna Steeso
Richardson in nn article entitled "The
Woman of Millions How She Spends
Her Money," In which she gives many
surprising facts. Another article of di
rect Interest to feminine readers is
"What the Chicago Woman's Club Una
Done for Chicago," by Bertha I).
Knon<\ The renl function of the wo
man's dub has not yet been settled, nt
least to the satisfaction of the general
public, but the success of th" Chicago
Woman's club In civic reform work Will
go far toward solving tho problem. An
other article strongly appealing to wo
men, nnd especially to mothers, Is
"The Mother and the Growing Boy," by
Margaret E. Sangster. This article
forms one of a series In which Mrs.
Sangster talks helpfully to mothers
about their many problems. The fiction
1 headed by "Tho Domestic Adventur
ers," a delightful new serial by Jose
phine Daskam Bacon. The "adventur
ers" nre three bachelor women who live
together In some happiness and much
excitement. It Is only necessary to say
that the cause of their adventures are
five extraordinary servants to induce
every woman to read the serial. Other
stories are contributed by Zona Gale,
Julia Trultt Bishop and Mary W. Hast
ings. The departments conducted by
Grace Margaret Gould, Fannie Merrltt
Farmer, Evelyn Parsons, Sam Lloyd
and Anna Steese Richardson are un
usually Interesting. The children's
pages contributed by Aunt Janet and
Dan Beard offer a pleasing array of
good things.
"Shall We Tax Wealth?" is the title
given to an unusually Interesting feat
ure of the current number of Smith's
Magazine. It contests of a symposium
on the much discussed topic of the in
come tax, and contains opinions from
such widely divergent personalities as
Joseph Letter, the millionaire; Hudson
Maxim, the scientist, and Governor
Folk, the reformer. It Is of unusual
Interest for the insight it gives us Into
the personal views of many of our
prominent statesmen, financiers and
thinkers, and it ia of decided value as
the best possible gauge of public opinion
on this question. Besides this the
magazine contains a number of splen
did short stories and articles by such
writers as Holman F. Day, Charles
Battell Loomis. Elmore Elliott Peake,
Tom Mason, Anne O'Hagan, Wallace
Irwin, Lillian Bell and Charles Gar
vice. It Is profusely illustrated, hav
ing a set of sixteen pictures of stage
beauties and another set of eight full
page pictures of cats which are sure
to Interest everyone.
If one were askod to indicate the
story in this month's Popular which
had taken keenest hold upon the
imagination the finger would probably
fall upon the third complete story In
the series of "Strange Cases of a Medi
cal Free-lance," by W. B. M. Ferguson.
It is called "The Case of the Vegetable
Rabies," and tells of the remarkable
discovery made by a doctor who
treated a patient for hydrophobia. The
story, If sensational, is artistic and
cloverly told, as are all the stories in
the Popular.
There are about twenty numbers in
all in the People's Magazine for March,
an all-fiction publication of 192 pages.
One complete novel and a great number
of well-selected short stories make up
this generous bulk of fiction. John H.
Whitson Is the author of the novel
which opens the magazine, and among
the writers of the short stories are
Newton A. Fuessle, Rodrigues Otto
lengui, Julia Truitt Bishop, Ethel
Watts Mumford, Edwin L. Sabln,
Brand Whitlock, Richard Marsh and
Ainslee's for March contains another
of Roy Norton's entrancing western
tales, called "Nodsawana," written
with the same knowledge of locality
F.nd the same deep human interest and
sympathy that have made Mr. Norton's
work characteristic of an entirely new
type. Nobody today Is writing with the
same sincere touch that makes his
stories so interesting. "Nodsawana" is
a combination of the western story
and the child-interest story that will
make its own peculiar appeal.
Arthur Stringer, whose work in re
cent years has grown in strength and
importance, is the author of the novel
