A WISE DECISION.
The decision of the School Board at n
it meeting Wednesday, to retain c
the school transfer system was a wise ,
eae, for unquestionably the transfer
-ystem is one of the essentials for a g
thoroughly compact, effective and sat
isfactory system of education.
The wastefulness and inefficiency of 2
the little one-room, one-teacher school
with a various assortment of classes,
is fast being relegated to the past, and E
t. line with the development of the
modern .rit oforg ,i'zatiou and con
solidat.W/the - " ".*. schools w:tb its
grades, intelligent supervision and co
/.prdinated work is taking its place, 1
giving in return a greater, fuller and
obtter development of the child.
The central :school is not possible
without the transfer, and following
the increasing spirit of evolution in
a:! ;iHrs toward co c,olidLtion that pre
sr- . in our en re society. the trans
for became an institution, because it
became a necessity.
That transfers have not become uni
versal is because evolution moves
slowly. And yet, considering the cx
esedingly remarkable development of
consolidation that has been going on
in the industrial world, in the steel
industry, the beef industry, manufac
taring, practically all, if not all, indus
tries, it is a cause of wonderment that
the schools have been so slow to re
spond to this movement, that the
leaders in this great industry, if we
may so term it, have waited so long
to discover that in education as well
as in other lines, efficiency and econJ
omy could oily be had through con
solidation. But the fact remains that
there are many sections that have so
tor failed to appreciate and benefit
threngh the spirit of the age. That
they will do so eventually is
as certai as that some have already
done so, for the weak educational sys
tem cannot lind place much longer in
a progressive consolidating age, and
must necessarily catch the contagion
and fall in line.
But while recognizing that these
facts are so, that the central school
transfers are logical and pos
v seeds ,of the times, don't let
au forget that consolidation alone is
,dCt everything. After consolidation
,. ere must be supervision, and of a
kind that will make the consolidation
eapat. Every central school must do
its work and every transfer be run
" to the very best advanitage, if the
Shtldren, and in turn the community
i's .to,receive the large benefits that
Sould accrue from the application of
the principle of consolidation to the
. bools.
I Ulferm Child Labor Laws Proposed
- y the Southern Conference. a
S.,'Tes-De4. crat:
"The Southern Child Labor Confer- a
o.ene has agreed, as we hoped it would, b
enop a legislative program eminently
r, le.tical and conservative. It is not
- e be expected that there would be
e' eqplete umanimity on all points, or
_that the manufacturing interests as a r
$ b..ole, would accept all the reforms
ppaed. It is difficult to change in
4wattl conditions that have prevail- r
fbor any length of time; and, as ex
:" fd,. a malortily report was pre
i ated, giving the views of the em
i.+71prs. The report contauined little 1
' -*gpad a postponement of action until
g&ah state had made, through a com
: mall5 oappointed by Its Qovernor, an
im t gatloa do the conditions afr.ct-.
ci h ehild Iaber, when the several com
,:,'i would meet and decide upon
the legislation to be recopmmended. It i
aeee. sndiss to say that this plan
`"*hat simply delayed action; and it I
cuasred s UIttle support that, after I
S'ise disesedon, it was withdrawn.
As a amatter of fact, the breach is
set so wh as it once was; and we are
*Sawla nearer together in the settle
at problems involved. The press
S.apeblic opinion have made them

ablses that formerly existed in

the employers of child labor, in regard
to the age limit, the hours of work,
etc. With uniform laws and all the
mills, in all the states, placed upon
terms of absolute equality, the prin
cipal objection to legislation framed
in the interest of children, to better
protect them, to discourage the em
ployment of very young children, and
to keep the hours of labor within what
the children can stand, is removed.
The recommendations of the com
mittee, which were adopted by the con
vention without a dissenting vote,
were:
"'A minimum age limit of fourteen
years, except in agriculture and do
mestic service, shutting all younger
children out of factories and similar
work.
Children not to be employed in dan
gerous or injurious labor.
"'Children not to be employed who
cannot read and write. This is alto
gether different from the propoaition
I f compulsory ..ducation, which was
t'rged b) some but vn.Lt:..s' opp')..
Ied by Gov. Sanders.
"'No boy under sixteen or girl un
der eighteen to be employed after i
Sp. m.
"'An eight-hour day for boys and all
women.
i "'The requirement of age certifi
cates, as provided for in Louisiana and
e Kentucky.
" "'Birth certificates to be required in
n every Southern State.
Strict Sanitary inspection, with
- strict penalties to enforce the law
t bearing upon this subject.
The age limit has been material
- ly raised from what it is now in a
5 number of states, and the daily hours
L- of labor are much shorter than the ten
Of or twelve now in force; but in view of
n the fact that the labor organizations
1 throughout the country composed of
a- men are insisting upon an eight hour
- day, it is certainly not unreasonable
Lt that the women and children, less cap
e- able of enduring continued work or
Le great fatigue, should not get equally
,e good term.s.
Lg The plaform of principles adopt
ll ed by the conference is, of course,
I merely a declaration, without any au
b- thority or statutory power, but it
it sounds the keynote of a campgn for
;0 better conditions in the life of the
it child workers. Having framed its
it platform the obligation is now thrown
is on the conference to carry out that
ly program and a permanent organiza
'5- tion will be per'cctad t: lay these d,
In mands before the legislatures of sev
id eral Southern States. If the conclus
m ions of the conference is accepted by
the Southern people, and public opin
se ion gives it support to them, it will not
ol be long before all these demands are
s- placed upon the statute book of eve
et ry Southern State and are enforced

The frst important step toward
helping a child of this kind is to give
her self-confdence, even ift you run
the risk of making her vaft and con
ceited. She needs a little wholesome
praise to make her feel that her play
mates will like her. Make her look as
attractive as possible, and tell her
that she is attractife; see that she tI
trained in all the arwts and g·aces that
will make her attractive; send her

see that she excels In games, in ath.

confdence in herself when she asso

is goins away to sch.ol or college give
her lessons on the banjo and guitar
so that she can join the banjo and
guitar clubs. If she has any talent of
any kind by which she can entertain
her friends help her to deve'op it. She
meut be taught to feel that she can
help others to have a good time and
that consequently she is welcome
am.oa them. Once that feeling is
established the battle is won.-liar
