SPEAKER PAYS VISIT TO SUC
CESSFUL RIVAL AT SEA GIRT,
N. J., HOME.
C. H. Crane and Van Hise of Wiscon
•In "U" Among Day's Guests
Former Was a La Follette
Sea Girt, N. J., July 16.—Speaker
Champ Clark and Governor Wilson
talked for two hours on legislation
pending before the house of represe
sentatives. The speaker arrived after
the governor had been conversing for
some time with two other guests,
Charles R. Crane of Chicago and Pres
iriOft Van Hise of the University of
Wisconsin, both of whom have been
prominent as La Follette supporters.
Mr. Crane said he was going back
to Chicago to work for Wilson and
would be glad to contribute to the
Democratic nominee's campaign fund.
In talking with the newspapermen
Governor Wilson said the subject of
contributions had not been touched
upon in his conversation with Mr.
Crane and there had been no pledge
of support for the governor on his
Speaker Clark came up from Wash
ington half an hour before he was ex
pected. He was not met at the sta
tion, rode in a hack to the governor's
home, and was almost on the porch
before anyone thought he was within
a dozen miles of Sea Girt. The gover
nor excused himself to other guests to
greet the speaker, shook hands with
him warmly and escorted him with
smiling face to the parlor.
"The speaker was very fine," Gov
ernor Wilson said to the reporters,
"His position was admirable and gen
erous in every .respect. I suppose he
told you what we talked about, didn't
"He said you would do that If you
saw fit for us to know," he was told.
"What we discussed—he introduced
the subject—was chiefly business
pending in the house and the pros
pects of adjournment," the governor
responded. "The rest was mainly in
explaining the very generous position
which he takes in regard to the cam
paign—he will do everything in his
power to help."
FEAR THE SUFFRAGISTS.
London Police Alarmed by Discovery
London, July 16. Scotland Yard
and the home office are more thor
oughly frightened at the suffragette
outlook than at any time before since
the "votes for women" campaigners
began resorting to militant tactics.
What the authorities fear now is a
genuine assassination. The discovery
of a bomb in Home Secretary Regi
nald McKenna's office Friday, and the
arreat of Miss Helen CraggB a few
hours later, one of the radicals who has
already clashed with the police on ac
count of her suffragette principles, on
a charge of attempting to set fire to

house at Oxford, have convinced them

Acserted That 12,000,000 Children Gc
No Further Than 8th Grade.
Bismarck. That the educational
system of the nation now in vogue ia
wrong is the theory of President J.
H. Worst of the North Dakota agri
cultural college. At present the
courses of study through the grades
and in the high school are arranged
primarily as a basis for the studies
taken up in college and the higher
institutions of learning. That this ar
rangement should be reversed is the
view of President Worst.
"There are 20,000,000 school chil
dren in the United tSates," says he,
"of whom over 60 per cent do not
progress farther than the eighth
grade. Eight per cent complete four
years' work of the high school curri
culum. Only onehalf of 1 per cent re
ceive diplomas from colleges or uni
versities. This percentage is even
lower, I should say that about one
quarter of 1 per cent of the school
children of the nation graduate from
higher institutions learning.
"It does not seem light to me that
our scheme of education should all be
based upon the work that only one
quarter of 1 per cent of the scholars
of the nation complete. The interests
of the other 99% per cent of school
children should be considered.
"With 60 per cent of the school
children thrown out into the world to
earn their own livelihood without hav
ing progressed farther than the eighth'
grade, I would have the course of
study rearranged so that they might
be better fitted for taking up their
life work. I would eliminate much of
the history, grammar and mathe
matics, and substitute agriculture and
a study of the forces of nature in their
stead. With only 8 per cent of the
school children completing high school
work, I would eliminate at least half
of the Latin, solid geometry and an
cient history from the curriculum,
and teach mechanic arts, domestic
science and agriculture.
"The present course of study con
tains subjects which are of little gocd
to the boy or girl after they have left
high school. They gain only a smat
tering of knowledge on some of these
subjects, and not enough to constitu
real culture. If a pupil has the means
and ambition to take a college course,
let the college add to its course of
study some of those subjects which
are now taught in the high schools.
Instead of the grades and the high
schools being mere stepping stones to
college, let the college reach down
and adapt its course to me*t the needs
of those boys and girls who are for
tunate enough to be able to fit them
selves for the professions."
