Miss Ethel Case, of Winona, and Eu

grade certificates, while Miss Clara
Dunn, of Northfield, and Bunlett
Thayer, of Spring Valley, were award
ed the second grade certificates of honor
at the slate d clamatory contest in the
assembly room of the Central high
school last evening. Upwards of 1,000
auditors were present, including many
delegates to the educational convention.
There was one contestant of each six
from the seven congressional districts
of the state. Excellent instrumental
music was rendered by Prof. Ant.
Jurka, Kosie and Charlie Jurka, Miss
Etta Messenger and Hans Schmidt.
The declamatory contest more than
sin passed expectation, and was engaged
in solely by pupils who had testified to
a rigid adherence to the rule established
by the Declamatory association last
year. Among these rules strictly ora
torical selections were insisted upon
from the boys. The provision caused,
unfortunately, the rejection of some
otherwise excellent speakers, but it was
thought necessary to identify the nature
of the speech because of the impossi
bility ot comparing dissimilar produc
The judges—all from districts not
represented In the contest—were, tor

him at the start, and Thayer had fifty
placed to his credit, Out the youngster
made his second 100 so fast that Thayer
could not gain a point, and trailed be
hind the distnnce of the handicap. It
was easy to be seen that Thayer was off
stioke. and as a cousequence missed
many comparatively easy shuts, and
numerous nnscues falling to his lot, lie
weakened toward the close, and Baron
won about as he pleased. This makes
Thayer's chances of winning the tourna
ment slight, as it depends not only upon
his beating Clow, which is doubtful
but also on Thomas winning from the
leader. This would make a three
han led tie. The game lasted through

And Ably Discuss Questions
of Vital Impor
Every county in Minnesota will be
represented at the state vducationat as
sociation, whose thirty-second annual
session began in this city yesterday aft
ernoon. The delegates are almost ex*
clusively public school teachers, but the
teachers of private and parochial schools
are warmly welcomed. The general
session does not begin until today, yet
the Windsor hotel, the official headquar
ters, was overflowing with delegated
last night.
At 2 p. m., in th« representatives'
chamber at the cnpitol. began the joint
session of the county superintendent
and high scnool sections. About 200
were in attendance. S. J. Kace, of Red
wood Falls, presided, and Miss G. C.
Ellis, of Mower county, was chosen
temporary secretary. The entire after
noon was devoted to a warm discussion
of the question, "'How can the rural and
high schools be more closely united?''
The chief plan was proposed by SuDt.
J. H. Chapman, of Rochester. It was
la the form of an act to amend chapter
144, general laws of 1881, "providing for
the encouragement of higher education
and closer union of all the educational
forces of Minnesota." The constitution
of a school board Air. Chapman would
leave to a future suggestion.
As to organization, no high
school iihould be entitled to the
benefits of the act until they had pro
vided suitable buildings and apparatus.
The subjects for study should constitute
sixty units or credits of work. Schools
prepared to do all the work should be
first-class high schools; 45 units, iec
ond-class; 30 units, thlrd-clasa; 15
units, fourth-class. Present schools
are first, second and third class, and
the distinctions between them are
too indefinite. All three grades now
receive 1400 annually from the state.
The new act would (five $100, $-200. £100
or ?400, according as the school would
be first, second or fourth-class. The
country would be made to pay its share
of higher education by a county assess
ment lor tha teachers' salar_
ies. At present. it was ex
plained, country districts average but
three mills for educational taxes, whiln
the city districts pay nine mills. The
examinations for pupils desiring to en
ter high schools should be uniform.
Country pupils are now examined on
nine tupics, city pupils on but four. A
that-class school should employ at least
four teachers, and so down to one
teacher for a fourth-class school.
The latter should attempt but the
first year of a high school course, and
only the lirst-class school should have
the complete course of four years. The
advantages of this plan would be nu
merous; but it would, above all, greatly
increase the number of high schools,
and enable a large number of country
pupils to remain at home and go
through a partial, if not a com pie,
lllsrli School Course.
This plan gave general satisfaction.
Superintendents U. M. Reynolds. 5
Lewis, S. Adams, of Northfield, and
Others took part in the discussion of the
afternoon and made several sugzestious
slightly differing from that of Frof.
Chapman. At length, on motion of
Buell Davis, of Winona, the president
was authorized to appoint a committee
of five, including the state superintend
ent of schools, to consider the various
plans and arrange one for submission to
the coming legislature.
The superintendent also informally
condemned the issuance of third-class
teachers' certificates. "This practice,"
said VV. W. Barber, of Todd county,
'•fills our schools, especially in the
country, with inefficient young girls
that are much better fitted* for house
work. They are paid but $20 a month,
and thus prevent th« employment of
competent teachers, who cannot accept
such salaries."
The meeting of the elementary sec
tion at 2:15. in room lit of the high
school, was presided over by Miss Sarah
C. Brooks, of St. Paul. After a brief
address by Miss Brooks a favorable
view was taken of the -'Herbartian

Prof. E. A. Kiikpatrick, of Winona.

An admirable address on the "Mean
ing and Object of Correlation" was de
livered by President Edward Searing,
of Mankuto. Emphasis was placed on
the propriety of such combinations a*
the study of geography with history.
Prof. c. H. Congdon, of this city, had
charge of the thirty or more delegates
that assembled first in the assembly
room at 2 o'clock, and later in room 20
of the high school, to discuss the musi
cal interests of the slate schools.
Miss Helen W. Track read a paper of
much interest and value to the musi
cians present. She believed that the
"Interval" can be tnusht to young chil
dren, and named as well as sung from
dictation. The first interval treated
was the octave, then the major and
minor seventh^ thirds, and seconds, the.
augmented fourth, and «o on. Betunrl
all, as a fountain of thought, stands tilt?

The resolution passed last August by
the superintendents 1 congress at their
meeting iv Minneapolis that "vocal
music should be made, by law. a part of
the common school curriculum,'' was
endorsed, and a committee iustructed
to bring the resolution before the gen
eral association, with a recommenda
