CHANGE SYSTEM OF
i TRAINING GASSES Abolish Offices of Model and L Zz.l',2 Teachers in the , I! Webster School. ' ’ In order to clear the way for a new system of training teachers at the Webster School in conjunction with the taking over by the State Board of Education of the Normal School, the Instruction and Educa tional Supplies Committee of the Board of Education determined at a | meeting held last night to recommend ; the abolition of the title of model and critic teachers . That the present system of con ■ ducting the training classes in the , "Webster and Normal Schools is a ! failure, Acting City Superintendent j David B. Corson practically admitted | in his report. Some of the, facts con ; tained in that report furnished a f surprise for the commissioners who ; had no idea that in many of the j classes in the Webster Street School ■' there were less than half the number of scholars the rooms would seat. In t some cases there were as few as ten f'ov twelve scholars to a class, t The proposed change is called the t *'one-room plan" and contemplates ,■ Including two classes In one room * with the model teacher in charge. ? The Normal School graduate will as f sist the model teacher and be gradu f ally introduced to the science of ^.teaching. The first week she will pdo nothing but learn the pupils’ f. names, etc. The second week she Pfwiil take charge of one subject; the g second week, two subjects, and prog f ress in that fashion. i By the new plan twelve teachers f will receive from the city $1,100 a (, year each. At ©resent there are f, eleven being paid $1,600 a year each, 1 The State Board of Education will ^ pay the additional bonus of $500 a . year, so that the model teachers will “pot suffer a reduction of income. One . of the model teachers will resign, i it is said, and as one has to be . appointed there will be two new ap ; pointees. The present cost of maintaining the system of training teachers to the. city is $27,508. Mr. Corson re ported while under the new manage ment the total cost for each of the next three years Is to he $24,930, $25,776 and 26,651. At the end of the third year fifteen teachers will be * on maximum and two within $100 of maximum and after the third year an increase of $1,000 a year for ten years will cover all of the cost. The new system will combine the centralizing method followed by the State Training School at Trenton and the apprenticeship plan in effect at Montclair Training School. When the praetise teacher in the Webster School is allowed to go out for ap prentice work in the Special A grade under the new system she will have advanced so far ns to be able to take real advantage of the opportunity. The “one-class plan" was endorsed hy the committee without a dissent ing vote. Some of the commission ers voiced their astonishment at the revelation of conditions at Webster School. Classes were smaller there than at the Normal School. Tinder the old system there were sixteen classes at Webster School and six classes and a kindergarten at tho Normal School. Under the new system there will tie twelve classes at the Webster School and the limit will be twenty * seven pupils to a class. With full classes more pupils will be taught than were given instruction under ♦he old system. Webster School ought to come up to the standard of other schools in the city under It, Mr. Corson said. Details of the plan will be worked out at a later meeting of the board. In the meantime Mr. Corson will talk it over with the model and critic teachers and get their views. The State Ro*rd of Education will take over full control of the Normal School and operate It. TWO CORPORALS OF CO.

Time lost because of headaches, lassitude and depressions of bil iousness, is worse than wasted. Biliousness yields quickly to the safe, certain home remedy— BEECHAM’S FILLS Eo.'d cTJcrla boici. 10c„ 2St. VERSATILE EXPERT FOR SCHOOL CRAFT H. B. Froehlich, Master of Many Arts, to Head Man Manual Training Dept. Recommendations of such generous terms and from such high sources ac companied the application of Pro fessor Hugo B. Froehlich for the po sition of supervisor of manual arts in the Newark public schools that the committee of instruction of the Board of Education congratulated them selves in extending their indorsement of his appointment on having the op portunity to secure his services. Commissioner Gaetano M. Belfatto did not concur, and voted “No" on the resolution, but his reasons were on the score ot economy. Professor Froehlich is understood to have had wide experience in instruct ing classes in the finer kinds of man ual training. He was in charge of that branch of work at Pratt Insti tute, Brooklyn, for a number of years, and only the fact that his resignation went to the faculty at a time when the president was spending his sab batical year abroad resulted in his quitting there. Last year he was lec turing, and his income from that source was $3,400. It is chiefly his de sire to do practical instruction work that led to his considering this posi tion with its annual salary of $2,500 a year. Under the grading system that increases by $100 raises to a maximum of $3,000. Samples of Professor Froehlich’s own handiwork were displayed to the commissioners. They covered a wide field. Some of the most re markable were samples of settings in gold, silver and metals of precious and semi-precious stones. Rings, brooches, necklaces and the like showed fine workmanship. There were also line samples of bookbind ing, cabinet-making and carving, drawing, designing and metal-work ing. The samples were viewed with enthusiasm by the commissioners. Commissioner Belfatto opposed the appointment of the new supervisor on the score of economy, saying that the work could be carried on by the present supervisors without a general supervisor over them.' “Supervisors, principals, directors always pardon and forgive the faults of those under them,” he said. "These supervisors of departments of the work would be more efficient if they were answerable to the board alone.” “We are indulging ourselves too much in luxuries," said Commission er Belfatto. "We are tending to the unnecessary expenditures of money. We find ourselves facing these eco nomic problems which aro threaten ing in all departments of our munici palities. Where we can do as well if not better by saving the salary attaching to a position we ought to do so. I shall vote against this ap pointment.” TO GIVE LECTURES ON AN EXTENSIVE SCALE Plans for free public lectures in twenty-six schools during the com ing winter with 170 lecturers en gaged in the first series were ap proved by the instruction committee for the Board of Education’s social centre work at a meeting last night. All of the schools which .had lec tures last year with the exception of Warren Street School where the attendance was not large, will be utilized again this year. In addition, Cleveland School and the Normal School will he Included In the circuit. The first series of lectures will be gin October 13 and continue up to the end of January. The success of the lectures last year is felt to warrant the extension of the work. The cost will not be any higher, but the ex perience of last year has enabled the committee to accomplish more. The new Children’s Court has In creased the duties of the attendance officers to such an extent that the instruction committee was asked to appoint a new assistant supervisor bv Supervisor of Attendance Charles A. MacCall. He explained that he used to find it no hardship to run over to the Criminal Court when one of the school children was held the.re. Now it is necessary to have someone in attendance at tho Court Home all the time the court Is sit ting. The need Is also felt for an assistant to bo on duty constantly 111 the office. Upon his recommendation. Eugene J. Sheridan, already an assistant at $1,200 a year, was appointed tempo rarily at $1,600 a year. Meanwhile tho Civil Service Board will be nsked to provide a list for a permanent ap pointment,. Supervisor MacCall was extended permission to go to Buffalo to attend the convention on the ear* of indigent and dependent children. A proposition that tho principals in those of the summer schools which had tho largest number of classes should be paid a bonus was laid over. The point raised was that some of the schools had twenty-four classes while others had but eight classes, yet all principals were paid alike. Miss McKnight was recommended for re-appotntment as librarian to tho schools.
