In Cleveland, Ohio, the fly-screen fa becoming obsolete. Many cities have bad their campaigns against the By each summer, but it remained for Cleveland to institute a warfare that does not end with the coming of win ter weather. This question and ans wer from the Fly Catechism give the plan: "How many flies may breed from a pair in the spring?" "Allowing six batches of eggs of 130 each, supposing all to live and find filth to breed in, the number would be 191,010,000,000.000,000,000, enough to bury the entire earth forty-seven feet deep. Why not kill the fly in the winter or early spring?" The commander of the fighters is a woman professor in the Cleveland Normal School, and her army is re cruited from the school children. The "fly-cops" are made responsible for different district of the city. A re ward of 10 cents for each hundred dead flies serves as, a stimulus to these members of the force. Some spring morning a youthful "fly-cop" will call on Mrs. Smith to tell her that a gar bage can needs a cover. If there is no action city officials back up the boy. And so with the girl who steps into a meat market and notes on a card how many flies she can see in three minutes. The campaign has worked wonders. Jn an investigation of .111 stores, res taurants and milk depots, no flies were found in CO per cent: fewer position of prominence from service; as an office boy on the Galveston News, which he entered April 9, 1874, at the age of 14 years. Mr. Dealey was born at Manchester, England, September 18, 1859. His education was received- in. the primary schools of Liverpool, England, and the primary and night schools of Gal veston, Tex. He came to the United States" in 1870. From office boy he was promoted through various grades, becoming business manager of the Dallas -News in 1885 and continuing in this position until 1906, when he became vice-pres ident and general manager of A. H. Belo & Co., publishers. Mr. Dealey finds much time for oth er activities besides his business as publisher. He is president of the United Charities of Dallas, director of the Chamber of Commerce, director of the Y. M. C. A., vice-chairman of the Dallas City Plan and Improvement League, vice-president of the Amer ican Civic Association, member of the Red Cross of Constantinople and mem ber of the Country Club and the Critic Club of Dallas. Jlr. Dealey will be the first speaker of Journalism Week, Monday night. May 3. His subject will be "The Newspaper, Its Revenue and Its Policies." Karl lVuIter, who signs himself K. W., the dramatic critic for the Kan sas City Star, has been connected with that paper for six years. Born'in Edinburgh, Scotland, May 25, 1S82. he attended Tonbrldge School, near London, and studied In Lau sanne, Switzerland, and schools in England. His father and grandfather were composers and musical directors in Germany. From his mother also Mr. Walter inherits musical taste, as she was a singer herself and the ( daughter of a composer of some note. William Jackson II.

Let's provide a means of rewarding the services of such chil dren, and, above all, fet's adopt with Cleveland the slogan. "Head 'em Off." BETTER RURAL SCHOOLS. Missouri should furnish better edu cational opportunities for the boys and girls of the country, for upon them depend In large measure the greatness of the state. This means not simply the creation of rural high schools within the reach of all, but the changing of a good many of our ideas of rural education. Nearly every township could afford 'to build a high school. This would mean not only a great saving In living expenses for those taking the course, but would induce increasing numbers to take advantage of the opportunity. It is a fallacy to assume that these boys and girls do not want a high school education. A majority of the students in the University are from the country. How much more would be accomplished if high schools were taken to those country children who do not have the means of going to the cities. But the failure to provide high schools isn't the only way we have neglected tho country children. In, the schools already pro vided, we have been educating them away from the farm. With the won derful laboratory of nature all around we' have not utilized it, but talked of syntax. Although we have been taught to proceed from the known to the unknown in teaching, we have for gotten about the child's mind being filled with birds and animals and flow ers and have tried to crowd them out with theors and divisors. Missouri needs more rural high schools, and a changed attitude in the rural school. It must come closer to the life of the child and not lead him to think that his living lies necessarily In getting away from his associations. Better schools would do much toward i arousing a deeper interest in the boy and girl for farm life. Some Missouri communities have seen the light, but too many have not. WHO'S WHO JOURNALISM WEEK George Bannerman Dealey, vice president and general manager of the Dallas News, the Dallas Journal and the Galveston News, has risen to his "A. U. Chnpln, being of sound mind and in possession of such faculties as are his to be blessed with, does here by, at the request and order of his new boss, depose and testify," wrote A. B. Chapin, a Journalism Week speaker, when he became cartoonist of the St. Louis Republic. "He was born In Ohio. He was led out of Ohio ' while a boy by his parents, who reso lutely set their faces to the plains of Kansas. He has, for the past twenty- j nve years, lougni, meu ana aiea iwo or three times a week defending the honor of his adopted state. He never was an infant prodigy, nor were his papers in the drawing classes the 'marvels of neatness," or the indica tions of 'wonderful talent' No 'I knew him when' clubs have ever been started in his honor and probably never will. "He skinned through school some how. He also went through high school. After he had surmounted the Alps of his high school days he be came obsessed of the idea that it was his mission in life to break into the newspaper game. His start along that line was not accomplished by all the pyrotechnics of a flashing meteor. His desire to study art at this time was blocked by an embarrassing lack of funds, so he drove a fish wagon long enough to hoard up car fare to New York and buy a few 'sinkers and cof fee' and- there he stayed during 1899 1900. "He returned to Kansas City and secured his first newspaper job on the old Kansas City Times. He went to the Kansas City Star late In 1901 and has since then been at the blacksmith's business on said paper, and prays par don for his many sins of commis sion."
