FACULTY New Teacher Will be Paid $60 a Month House Warm ing Soon. At a special meeting of the Board of Education last night, the new High School building on Pacific street at the head of Merriwether street, was for mally accepted from the architects in charge of the construction. The board authorized the warrants to be drawn to complete the paymenl of the contract price of the building with the exception of $500, which is tc be withheld till the completion of i few minor details in construction worl that still remain to be done. The board met at the High Schoo building in the office of Superintend ent J. M. Crocker and subsequently made a tour of inspection through th new structure. The new auditorium was lighted up for the members of the School Boar! for the first time. The auditorium i:; complete and it is one of the finest in the Cape. At their meeting, the members o: the board also authorized the appoint ment of an additional High School teacher at a salary of $60 a month. The new instructor's work is to be ar ranged by Principal Doherty and the addition of the teacher will mean a bij; difference in the amount of work re quired of all other members of th High School faculty. The board authorized the appoint ment of the additional instructor oi the report of the Finance Committer stating that the board will be finan cially able to employ another teache; for the High School. Principal Doherty has been teaching several classes this year as well as at tending to the administrative work o: the school, and all of the members o the faculty have been doing additional work caused by an over-crowded con dition. Classes in physical culture this nex semester, together with the additio. of about forty new students in th-f High School from the eighth grade o the grammar schools, will make it ab solutely essential that a new instructo be added to the rolls. D. B. Foster, of the firm of J. H Felt & Co., architects, of Kansas Cit, yesterday arrived in the Cape to in spect the work upon the High Schocl building and to accept it from the con tractor, the Vogelsang Bros. Construc tion Co., which erected the structure, The work upon the building was found to be alright and the architect accepted the work. He thereupon of fered it to the Board of Education last night, under the stipulation that th minor jobs that remain shall be finish ed satisfactorily. The most important work that re mains to be done is the construction of a tile drain around the building'5 wall on the outside. This is to eatci all water flowing down the side of thj building and carry it to a sewer. Th? drain was put into the plans to pre vent any seepage from around the bas? of the walls into the basement. It was argued that the drain, as pro posed in the plans, would not be essen tial for the reason that the sewer tt which it led was about on a level wit'i the drain itself. The members of the board last night determined, however, that the draii ought to be installed and work will commence at once to have it put ir. The value of this work aproximate; $50. Some of the faucets that go with th ? automatic drinking fountains have no: arrived at the building yet and the; remain to be installed. Several othe odd jobs that will be completed within a few days remain. The board already has drawn war rants on the building fund for approxi mately $75,000 to pay for the construc tion of the new High School building and last night the remainder of th contract price at about $89,000 was au thorized with the exception of the $500 that will be held out till the absolute completion of everything in connection with the building. The equipment for the building ha; virtually all be installed. Some of h machinery in the manual training 1e partment has not been set up yet, lut that work is being performed by Pi ol . Charles B. Lamb. The equipment under the contract; will not be paid for till it is entirel;'' installed in the departments. Plans for a house-warming day at UT0ISTS PAY FOE JACKSON ROAD OIL Club Votes to Turn Oier Funds to Road District Commissioners. The Cape Auto Club last night p us ed a resolution turning over to the Cape Township Road Commissioners funds which members of the club 1 ave been collecting for the last two mo:iths to be applied in payment for the J.ick son road oiling. About two months ago, the members of the auto club determined to do something to aid in the improvement of motor roads about the Cape. In a quiet, unostentious way, the members of the club solicited funds from mo.or- ists who make a great deal of use of the road to Jackson, and started to build up a fund that would meet the expenses of oiling the highway. Last night no definite figure could be obtained regarding the amount of subscriptions to the fund because all the members have not checked in their collections to the treasurer. It is be lieved the amount will be more than $100, however. Plans last night also were laid for the rejuvenation of interest in the club. A campaign to get more members is being considered and way and means of getting more automobile owners and drivers interested in the organization are bieng devised by the officers. The auto club will have performed its first activity when the oil fund is turned over to the road commissioners. All the automobile dealers in the Cape last night were appointed as members of a special committee to make arrangements for a big meeting of automobile men at the next regular session of the club on November 23. New officers probably will be elect ed at that time, and various other spe cial features will be on the program. The present officers of the organiza tion are: Dr. G. B. Schultz, president; Harry E. Alexander, vice president; Arthur C. Bowman, secretary, and E. A. Caton, treasurer. FLANNIGAN --FIELDS TIP STIRS MEMPHIS Newspapers Say Police of Two Cities Have Found New Clew. According to newspapers published in Memphis, Tenn., new evidence has been obtained by the police of Mem phis and New Orleans which they claim will link.Larkin J. Flannigan and Waddell Fields to the murder committed in Memphis two months ago. The new evidence has not been divulged, but it is believed in Mem phis that detectives from that city will make a visit to Cape Girardeau w thin a few days and question the two men in the Jackson jail. The double murder, which the police of New Orleans and Memphis believe they will be able to connect the two prisoners with, occurred in Memphis late in September. Marguerite Favar and James C. Crowell were found dead, and the evidence indicated that they, had been murdered for the purpose of robbery. Detectives and newspapermen :"rom Memphis came to this city and qu zzed Fields and Flannigan for one week, and finally abandoned hope of getting a confession and returned to Memphis. The police of that city, working with the detective force of New Orleans, claim to have unearthed new evidence, which the police believe is stronger than the evidence which was brought to this city ten days ago. 8 YEARS FOR BANK EMBEZZLER Claude Scoggin Is Sentenced for Shortage at Caruthersville. Caruthersville, Mo., Nov. 9. Chude Scoggin, former assistant cashier of the People's Bank, was this morning sentenced by Judge W. N. Evans to eight years for embezzlement. He had previously been convicted by juries in two cases and entered a plea of guilty to another charge. Scoggin made no statement in court, but he has denied repeatedly that he had any of the $25, 000 he was charged with embezzling. the High School now will be taken up by a committee of the board in charge of the proposed entertainment. The building will be kept open all day long. Students will act as guides to take the visitors through the build ing and point out the various features and places of interest in the Cape's educational plant. The girls of the domestic rcience classes will serve a lunchean in their department and all the other depart ments will haye exhibits of their work on display. BOND ISSUE MAY FAIL, IS BELIEF OF MANY VOTERS Proposition Must Get Two Thirds of All Ballots Cast, In Order to Pass. HOUCK PLANS FIGHT TO PREVENT ITS SALE Will Go to Court in Effort to Keep Rozier From Selling Park. In order to pass the bond issue to buy the Fairgrounds, two out of every three voters must cast their ballots for the proposition. Most everyone be lieves that the proposition will get a majority, but a great many feel that it will not receive the requisite number to make it win. Most of the business men believe the bond issue will receive the number of votes necessary to pass it, but there are quite a number who believe it will fail to get two thirds of the total vote. There is net likely to be a large vote cast. Those who are opposed to the city acquiring the park, will be at the polls, but there is much fear that those who are in sympathy with the measure will assume the "let George do it" at titude, and the issue will be lost. Mayor Kage said yestreday that he did not believe the Fair Board had been as active as they should be to en courage the people. That is, he is afraid many people do not thoroughly understand the proposition. "Some imagine it means the death of the county fair, which, of course, is not the case," said the Mayor. "Others are afraid it will double the taxes. So many false rumors have been sent out that many have been confused. How ever, I feel certain the bond issue will carry." Ac-cording to those closest to Mr. Louis Houck, it is not believed that he will continue his fight on the Fair grounds, if the city takes it over. This statement was made by a man very "close" to Mr. Houck last week. But Mr. Houck plans to fight the sale of the grounds under the mort gage. The. stockholders of the Fair grounds have mortgaged the grounds to Henry Rozier of Ste. Genevieve, and he has informed them that he will sell the land at auction to satisfy his claim, if the bond issue fails to carry. Mr. Houck says the land cannot be sold and he is going to go into the courts and get an injunction. He plans to go the limit, he has announced, to prevent the Fairgrounds being trans ferred from its present owners. CAPE TO FIGHT FOR A POSITION ON NEW HIGHWAY (Continued from page 1) been spent in States in the West. In many places the highway has been blasted out of solid rock, President McThcrson said last night. In Colo rado, the convict labor is used on the road. "The Eastern Missouri route is the ideal route for this highway, I be lieve," Mr. McPherson declared last night. "Illinois is impracticable on account of black mud making the road on that side of the river virtually impassable for a certain period of the year. What these men want on the Jefferson High way is a road that will be ready for traffic at all times of the year. "In Kansas, the same difficulty is encountered. For four or five months of the year, along the route that they propose to use there, the roads are not practicable on account , of mud. They are miles away from a rock or road-making material and the same condition exists in Western Missouri, to a great extent. "What will be essential will be a route that will be high and rocky all the way and' all the time. "The route along this shore of the river affords that in every particular. We are high and dry. There is no danger from mud. The road will be open the year round. We have build ing materials for roads enough to make the entire highway for them. "The ideal way for the road to go up the Mississippi Valley, in my opin ion, would be to follow the old El Ca mino Real (The Royal Road) or the King's Highway that now is being marked by the Daughters of the American Revolution. "This road was surveyed by the Spaniards in 1775 at the order of the Emperor Charles V., of Spain. The route has existed since, and it with Bring Flowers School Girl Essayist Outlines Flans to Students for Keeping Build ing Tidy Don't Stick Gum On Seats or Mark on Walls, Are Admonitions. By Nannie Young, English 9 B. As we all see, the walks around this building are not made. The yard has no grass in it, and it will be very easy to get our shoes muddy in rainy weath er. If each one would take care to keep out of the mud and walk on the board walks until the other walks are made, this would keep the floors much clean er and save work for janitcr. Papers and fruit pealings also make the yard untidy. Each pupil might be carelul that he does not cut initials or scrat ?h the new desks, or if he sees anyone e se at such work, to tell him to stop it. We should keep our desk.' and lock ers in order, and not throw paper on the floor or sharpen pencils on the floor. Nor should we chew gun and stick it under the seats and in th? desks, as was done in Lorimier school. I will not mark on the new white walls and am sure none of you pupils purposely will. Things ought not to be .hrown to ward the building, for thi windows might be broken. A great amount of unnecessary noise will give the buildnig a bad. unorderly reputation. People of the city will watch the school to see it progress. Fach one of us can help to give the school a name. Try to give it the best! I am sure pupils, as well as each teacher, appreciates this new building and is glad we are in it. I think it would add greatly to the beauty of the building if each pupil that could get some sort of plant would bring it to school to put in the window. Some blooming geraniums or fern would be nice to have. Lorimier gave to us the land this building is built on, so I think it would be a good idea to erect a statue (prob ably a fountain in his honor. This, of course, would cost a good deal of money, but we would like to do it some time. Then, the walls have ro pictures. The walls of almost all larpe buildings are hung with pictures. It would add to the looks of the recitation rooms if we had some pictures of great men or of buildings, which we study about in that room. STUDENTS GO SKETCHING Miss Lucille Douglas, the public school music and drawing t acher, took two of her best artists, Lydia Wolf and Elizabeth Wolthers, out on the Bloom field road to sketch autumn scenes. They ate their dinner at th ' Old Fair grounds and then crossed over to the Jackson road and came horre. considerable difficulty that it is being marked out, but the o-ganization gradually is getting it in shape. "The Jefferson Highway could cross the river at Memphis and ome direct ly north to the Cape and :hence into St. Louis. At Memphis the e is a new Rock Island bridge that is nearing completion and on which there is a free wagon bridge or roadway. "This could be taken advantage of. On this side of the river, at that point, Crittenden County has just sold $200, 000 worth of bonds to build feeder roads to that bridge. These roads will be first class and this highway coult take advantage of those. Tl ey will run out twenty miles from Memphis. "The route would come on north through Blytheville, Osceo a, Caruth ersville, Sikeston and thei into the Cape." Mr. McPherson last nig'it declared that he believed that immdeiate ne cessity for sending a representative to the New Orleans meeting is of most importance to automobile garage and hotel men. "They will be the ones far more concerned with this move than any other of the Cape's business men. I am disposed to think that they ought to aid in financing a delegate's way to New Orleans to attend th's meeting, if the Cape is to be represented." An attempt to get the hotel and au tomobile. men together to send a ma' will be made today. It is estimated that actual fare will require about $50 for one delegate, and business men last night who discussed the matter, said the Cape ought to send an expert lob byist provided with at least $200 ex pense money. It is probable that th-i automobile and hotel men will atte n;)t to raise this sum and select a man. The dele gates will have to leave the Cape by Saturday night, so that decisive and concerted action is essential to put the thing through. To New High Writer Urges FRESHMEN ELECT RAYMOND FISHER Plan Marshmellow and Weiner Roast to Encourage Class Spirit. Raymond Fisher, Mayor of one of the 8-A civics classes last year, was elected president of the Freshman class in two elections. The second elec tion was held, not because the Fresh men thought that the ballot was stuff ed, but because Mr. Doherty decided that the 9-A class should be counted as Sophomores this year. The other officers elected were: W. B. Schaefer, vice president; Hallie Brumback, treasurer; Louise Norvell. secretary; Henry Davidson, sargeant at arms. The right class spirit is being shown early by the members and all are plan ning on having good social times to gether as well as working side by side during the four years of High School. They have decided to start their good times with a marshmallow and weiner roast, to be held at the Home of the Birds, Tuesday evening. The following executive committee was appointed by the president: Rich ard Wipperman, Louis Hirsch and Louise Norvell. A committee to organize the weiner roast was made up of the following members: Hallie Brumback, Silas Stearns and Carrol McCarty. D. A. R.
