Vol. 11 HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, JUNE 19. 1919 No. 32 RESUME OF SCHOOL LEGISLA TION ENACTED THIS TEHM The State School Department sends us the following: We are enclosing n resume of school legislation enacted by the 50th General Assembly. This possibly does not include everything touching upon school matters, but it does include all of the most im portant measures, as follows: Senate Bill No. 324, provides for an increase in salary of 50 per cent for County Superintendents through out the State of Missouri. This bill was signed by the Governor on March 28, and carried an emergency clause, therefore it was in effect at the time of the election of the Coun ty Superintendents on April 1. Senate Bill No. 559. Passed and signed at the same time as No. 324. This bill effects St. Louis County only, and fixes the salary of the County Superintendent at $4,000 per year. Senate Bill No 17. This is the new Compulsory Attendance Law. It provides that every child between the ages of seven and fourteen shall attend school regularly for the en tire term, and between the ages of fourteen and sixteen they must at tend unless actually and regularly engaged for at least sl. hours each day in some useful employment or service. As a'means of enforce ment, this law provides for a county attendance officer being selected by the County Superintendent of schools, placed under a bond of $1,000 and being paid a salary not to exceed $4.00 per day for each day actually engaged in the discharge of his duties and his actual expense in curred. This attendance officer is appointed for the entire county and has authori ty to arrest and place in school, children who are not in attendance. He may bring action against the parent or guardian in any court of competent jurisdiction. Only chil dren mentally or physically incapa citated or who have completed com mon school courses and receivod certificate of graduation are exempt. Teachers shall report non-attendance direct to the County Superin towns and cities may employ sepa rate Attendance Officers and pay them from the funds of the district, otherwise the County Attendance Officer will act In these districts. This is considered the best Com pulsory Attendance Law in any of the States, and we see no reason why this should not greatly increase the attendance in this State, as it is made the duty of the State Depart ment of Education and of all school officials as well, to enforce this law. Senate Bill No. 335 provides for the apportionment of school funds upon the basis of the previous year's attendance in case of an epidemic huch as has existed this year. In structions are going forward to County Clerks and County Superin tendents as to the method of carrying out the provisions of this law. House Bill No. 570 provides the necessary appropriation for carrying out the Smith-Hughes Act, estab lishing Vocational Schools. House Bill No. 571 provides for part time schools, to be established in any districts in' the rftate where in there shall be issued and in full force and effect not les than twenty-five employmer-t certificates for children under sKtean years of age. This bill provides that such child ren fchall attend these part time class es for not less than four hours per week for so long as the schools are regularly in session in such districts. When such schools shall have met the standards of the Federal Act and the standard established by the State Board for Vocational Education, they shall be entitled to share in the dis tribution of the Federal funds avail able under the provisions of the Fed eral Act. The Compulsory Atten dance Law applies to part time schools. Senate Bill No. 449 provides for the legal creation of the existing Ne gro Industrial Commission. House Bill No. 414 permits the State Superintendent of Schools to pay to the Teacher-Training In spector in the State Department a maximum salary not to exceed $2, 500 00 per year. House Bill No. 391 amends Sec tion 10,797, Revised School Laws, pertaining to tax levy for erecting school houses by adding the follow ing provision, namely, "when the pro position to be voted on refers only to repair or furnishing, or both repairs and furnishing such school building the proposition shall be doomed (o have been carried at the election if u majority of votes cast are cast in favor of the proposition. Senate Bills Nos. 378 and 482 pro vide for the payment of tuition for children attending high schools out side of the district in which they re side, in certain counties having a population of eighty thousand or more, and two hundred and fifty thousand or more respectively. House Bill No. 1009 provides for an appeal from the diclsion of the County Superintendent to the Judge of the Circuit Ciurt in cases of re voking certificates. House Bill No. 48 provides for es tablishing of schools in any district, under certain conditions, for child ren who are blind, deaf, crippled or feeble-minded. Joint and Concurrent Resolution No 18 provides for the submission of a constitutional amendment at the next general election, allowing rural districts to vote $1.00 for school pur poses on precisely the same condi tions that cities may vote $1.00. Under provisions of House Bill No 1071, the general appropriation bill, the State Department of Educa tion was given additional help in the way of two Rural School Inspectors, and an addition to the clerical force. This, we feel, will be of material as sistance to us in carrying out the work of this department. nnuiuv Helniets Worn by German War Lords on Exhibit at Methodist Centenary Celebration YOUTH DROWNED AT CHUTE SIXTEEN 25gaSSE2BQV tgKsgggsasaisggsgsaEgg Below are a number of bills per taining to education, which failed of passage: House Bill No. 337 providing for raising the qualifications of Coun ty Superintendents of Schools.

The first fatality of the swimming season occurred yesterday afternoon about three o'clock when L. B. Holt Jr., fourteen year old son of Luther B. Holt, former grocer of this city, was drowned while in bathing with a bevy of youths at this favorite swimming hole. He had attempted to follow one of the smaller boys who had swam across the Chute, be came exhausted as he neared the op posite bank and sank in water about fifteen feet deep in spite of the efforts of Herman Friderich, one of his companions, who endeavored to res cue him. Word of the tragedy was soon brought to the city and a number of people went to the Chute, which is situated about four miles below the city, and his body was finally lo cated and brought to the surface by Jeff Rogers, after diving several times -in search of it. The deceas ed lad was unusually heavy for his age, weigntng uuout iys pounds, we are told, and it was with some dif ficulty that his body was brought to the surface. Young Holt had been employed at the post office as special deliv ery carrier since the school term closed and was an industrious and likable boy of whom everybody thot well. His death cast a gloom over his youthful associates here and comes as an especially hard blow to his parents and other members of the fondly, to whom It was so unexpect ed and apparently un-calledlfor. The fatal occurrence probably will have a tendency to discourage the practice of bathing at this deep and nlore or less dangerous place, too. Funeral services have been set for this (Tuesday) afternoon at the home of the family on West Sixth street, conducted by the Baptist minister, Rev. W. H. Setzer, after which inter ment will be at Little Prairie Ceme tery. Caruthersville Democrat. CARUTHERSVILLE DEFEATS GOODBARS SEVEN TO FOUR Seante Bill No. 690 empowered i the Board of Eduction in school districts having ap'opulatlon of tweir; ty-flve thousand inhabitants or more, to require a physical and mental ex amination of all children attending the public schools. SAM A. BAKER, State Superintendent of Schools. KING-DALEY In addition to the above mention ed bills, a bill requiring common school districts to pay high school school tuition where no high school is provided in their district, failed of passage, as did a bill empowering That Much Assured. A somewhat Impecunious youns fel- ' low rashly engaged himself to a charm- I ing young thing, who shortly after the I excitement had subsided hogan to i evince doubts. Said he: "How long, dearie, do you tl.ir..: -vo shall bave to be engaged?" "Well, sweetheart," said the young man cheerily, "I have enough money to last for si- month" I think." .tKuEsell King and Miss Ruth "Da ley were united in matromony Mon day evening by Rev. Newsom. It was a quiet affair, only two of Miss Da ley's friends being present, Miss Nan nie Mitchell and Fred Thornell. The Herald join their many good friends in extending congratulations The first of a three-game series between Caruthersville and the Mem phis Goodbars was played on tho Ca ruthersville diamond Sunday and re sulted in a cleanup for tho local crew by a score of seven to four. Despite the rather high score, thi3 has been -declared one of the very beat games ever played In Caruth ersville and it was witnessed by the largest crowd of the season so far, there being just a few under six hun dred spectators there, and of this number almost two hundred were present from this city. The Goodbars are leading tho city league in Memphis this year and they comprise some of the best players in and around Memphis. This an nouncement that this would bo one of the best games ever played in Caruthersville was made in perfect good faith and developments show ed that the assumption was correct. Patterson pitched a good game for Caruthersville and his support was never better Likewise Bcnham de livered good stuff from the Mound for the visitors, getting more strike outs, even, than did "Pat," but his crew could not co-ordinate their work so well as did Reiney's men, it seems, for they secured nine hits to Caruthersville's eight. Out of tho eight Caruthersville netted seven runs, whereas, Memphis could only pull four over the plate to show for her nine hits. Sensational fielding by Manuel and Collenberger saved the day for Reiney's troop, seventeen chances without an error being their part in copping off the series for "Cap." How ever, It was by no means an error less game, for Caruthersville stack ed up four mistakes to Goodbarsr five. All in all, it was a rippin' good game and the fans felt repaid for the time and money spent in watch ing it. Next Sunday's will bo just as good, possibly better, and if the Goodbars should happen to come off first best the test game on the follow ing Sunday will draw some crowd, it weathercondltlons should not hap pen to prevent.
