IDAHO Semester Statement by Superintendent Conditions Present Organization of Beginning Classes tor First Primary Pupils. Superintendent Hal G. Blue of the Twin Falls schools today issued the following announcement; It will be impossible to organize beginning classes for first primary pu pils at the opening of the second se mester, Monday, January 14. There are several reasons why it is neces sary to make this announcement. In the Lincoln school, there is not a single available room for the or ganization of a new beginning class. Every room in tills building is oc cupied; even the small room imme diately above the principal's office is occupied by 18 or 20 pupils. In the Washington school, room is occupied. classes are held in the Washington auditorium. This is necessary in or der to care for the recitation work in the sixth and the seventh grades. In the Bickel school, there is one room that could be used for a beginning' class. It is a vacant room in the frame annex. If a beginning class were organized in tills room. It would be to such a disadvantage to those pupils living in the Washington and the Lincoln districts that it would be impossible for them to enter. Of the four school buildings in this district, the high school is the most centrally located. A beginning class organized in the high school building would be equally advantageous and disadvantageous to all first primary pupils in the district.

It is always education ally essential to place in beginning first primary classes those pupils who fail in first primary work and who should repeat the work. If a begin ning class were organized in the high school building, these repeating pu pils from the other schools would be at the serious disadvantage of being compelled to go outside their own dis tricts to attend school. This was one of the objectionable features of the beginning class organized in the high school building last January. It is felt that it would be more advantage ous to these repeating pupils to leave them with the teacher to whom they have been going for half of the year and who, perhaps, can do more for them than any other teacher in the system. By remaining with their pres ent teachers during the remainder of to ,)e brought up to grade when the school closes next May. Anticipating the possibility of not being able to organize a beginning primary class in Jahuary, it was Pounced when school began last Sep tomber that beginning pupils v.-ho would be six years old oh or before December 15 might enroll. The age limit heretofore lias been November ^he extending of the age limit to December 15. practically seven weeks, results in a smaller number of chlld ren ready to enter a beginning class January than heretofore. In fact, there are not enough children corn * nK mto school age at this time to ma ^ e absolutely necessary the organ Nation of a beginning class for the n . ext semester. It would be impos sihle to organize a class and employ a teacher for twelve or fifteen pupils. On the side of educational growth and development, nothing will be Tost to these pupils who will need to wait until next September to enter begin ning classes. next September with the advantage of having had several months of growth and play, advantage of starting their school reers on the even years. ter of four or five mouths immedi ately prior to schooling on lust six years old is not important when consideration is given to the ul timate results of his elementary edu cation.

When Secretary Baker concluded his statement he immediately drew out a large black cigar and asked "do the ladies object?" Lit it and leaned back ready for questions. Senator Chamberlain opened with: "What have you to say of the meth ods of the ordnance department?" "First, the matter of rifles is now practically settled. When we went in to the war everybody agreed that the Springfield rifles were the best in the world," said Secretary Baker. "I don't want to break in but that state ment is very far from the facts, ac cording to our testimony." broke in Senator Weeks of Massachusetts. "All of the information 1 have ever had is that it is best," answered Sec retary Baker. "One of the acts of the ordance de partment has been the abandonment of the Springfield rifles," said Sena tor Chamberlain. "Perfectly true," answered the sec retary of war. "All men now are supplied with rifles. I am not quite sure of that, but it is what I under stand." Senators Chamberlain and McKel lar questioned the statement. "I have no desire to press the point, it is relatively unimportant.,"' answered Baker. "The delay was oc casioned by the ordnance department and I approved it. We saved a great deal of time by remodelling the En field rifle.

"It is a fact that the war was on us sufficiently for us to hasten men to France," said Senator Wadsworth. "I meant the enemy was 3,000 miles away. We had an adequate supply of modern arms for all of the could send to France," answered the secretary. men we BEAUTIFUL STAGE STAR IN SECOND FILM PRODUCTION "The Rise of Jennie Cushing" the Artcraft production now being shown at the Idaho theater, is a big, human subject.

In the book by Mary S. Watts, Jennie Cushing commanded admiration, appealing to the sympa thies not by her helplessness but through her grit and determination to rise from her lowly surroundings.
