*y pupils FROM SCHOOL Supervisor MacCall Wants a Fund to Buy Shoes and Clothes for Needy. Charles A. MacCall, supervisor of the attendance department of the Board of Education, in his annual report states that during the past year 1,655 pupils were absent from school because they lacked proper or necessary clothing and shoes with which to attend. According to Mr. MacCall the at- ’ tendance officers provided the neces sary articles in each case brought to their attention, and in the past year the attendance department has been compelled to secure clothing through appeals to the Bureau of Associated Charities and by contributions from j public-spirited citizens. Mr. MacCall says one citizen alone contributed or ders for more than sixty pairs of shoes to children who were practically barefoot In the middle of winter. 'it does seem to me that in a large ■ and progressive city, such as Newark. I it should not be necessary for the at-I tendance department to depend upon private charity to enable these Indi- I gent pupils to attend school," said j Mr. MacCall. "I am firmly of the 1 opinion that a fund should be estab- ' lished either by the Board of Educa- j tion or by the poor and alms depart ment of the city, from which this de- j partment might secure funds to pro cure necessary clothing for children Who are unable to secure it in any I Other way in order that they may be 1 kept in regular attendance at school. j Assuredly a very close watch would be kept, and as thorough investlga- : tlons would be made as at present be- i fore any of such fund, if established, i would be drawn upon by this depart ment. "In many other States and cities such a course Is followed and no child is ever allowed to absent Itself from school more than a half day because of lack of shoes or clothing. In this oity such a fund would cost but a small fraction of one per cent, of the tax rate, and I am satisfied that any amount that migHI be spent would be returned through the allowance made by the State for the additional days’ attendance of these unfortunate chil dren. Parents Visited. "Personal interviews were held by the supervisor and his assistant with eight thousand four hundred and ninety-four (8,494) parents during the year. Many of these interviews were caused by some delinquency of pupils because of which it was necessai’y to summon the parent to this office in order to impress upon them the neces sity of compelling proper conduct on the part of their children. The greater part of these interviews, however, were with parents who desired their children to secure ~ ‘age and school ing' certificates In order to send them to work, but who for some reason wore unable to produce sufficient proofs of the possession by the child of the necessary qualifications which are required by-law before an 'age and schooling' certificate can be legally Issued. "A great number of such appeals are made to this department daily and many , sad cases of poverty are un covered through them. I am very happy to report, however, that al though no 'age and schooling’ cer tificate has ever knowingly been is sued contrary to law by this depart ment, some means have usually been devised to at least alleviate the dis tress in the family until such time as the pupil has been able to secure the necessary proofs of age, education and physical ability and has been granted an 'age and schooling’ certificate. In some of such cases financial aid has been given by the Bureau of Asso ciated Charities, in others by private individuals, and very often work has been procured for some member of the family or for the child Itself after school hours. "In New York and several other States a fund is provided either by the State or by the State chOd labor committee (usually a private organ isation) from which is taken suf ficient money to aid any family found to be in sore need because of the fact that a child over the age of fourteen is unable to secure the necessary 'working papers' and Is compelled to attend school when he or she might otherwise earn at least enough for his or her own support. I most earn estly wish that such an arrangement might be made In this State or city, because much valuable time 1s used by this department in endeavoring to aid such families through private or ganisations and individuals. Friction Eliminated. "On July 4, 1914, an entirely new compulsory education law and prac tt illy new child labor laws went into effeot. Under the provisions of these laws the duty of Issuing 'work ing papers,' as they were formerly Ailed, was transferred from the State Byrne & McDonnell Hawn •* N, X. Stock Intuit jt. X.

The enforcement of these laws floes away for all time with the con nlct between the department of labor and the school authorities as to which waa the proper department to decide whether a child was of sufficient age, possessed sufficient education and was Physically able to go to work. It seems to me that it would be absolutely absurd for this department to issue a certificate to a child be tween the ages of ten and sixteen years, which apparently permitted his employment when anyone who would employ such a child would be directly violating the provisions of the child labor law. "1 protested against this section of the compulsory education law before its passage, but was overruled. I think that any attempt at a practical application of it, however, has clearly shown its absurdity, and I hope that it may be amended during the next session of the Legislature.” According to Mr. MacCall, of the 1,834 pupils to whom “age and school ing” certificates were granted, nearly sixty per cent, secured employment in factories and workshops, about twen ty-five tier cent, in stores and other mercantile establishments, twelve per cent, in laundries, in domestic ser vice and as office boys, one per cent, remained at home to assist in house hold duties, and only one per cent, chose the so-called ‘blind alley’ em ployments, such as newsboys, mes senger boys, peddlers, etc. Table Summary, “The following is a tabulated sum mary of the work of the department during the entire school year: Cases of truancy reported by principals of public schools... 3,131 Cases of absence reported by principals of public schools_ 30,638 Cases attending no school re ported by principals of public schools . 357 Cases of truancy, etc., report ed by principals of other schools . 2,617 Visits to public schools by at tendance officers . 9,082 Visits to other schools by at tendance officers . 1,229 Visits to homes by attendance officers . 48,339 Legal notices served ... 1,475 Parents summoned to Criminal Court . 1.139 Parents and guardians prose cuted and convicted. 42 Pupils returned to public schools by attendance officers. 29,040 Pupils returned to other schools by attendance officers. 2,335 Children found on the street and taken home . 633 Children found on the street and taken to school. 1,295 Transfer cards Investigated by attendance officers _ 7,225 "Age and schooling" certifi cates Issued . 1,834 Cases of absence found to be caused by illness. 12,129 Cases of absence found to be caused by lack of clothing.... 1,655 Boys recommended for transfer to ungraded schools. 144 Boys transferred to ungraded schools . 102 Boys recommended for commit ment to Newark City Home.:. 11 Permits and badges issued to newsboys . 105 "There was an increase in the per centage of attendance during the past school year of one and seven-tenths per cent,” Mr. MacCall reports. “The per cent, of attendance for the year 1913-1914 was ninety and five-tenths per cent., while that of the past year was ninety-two and two-tenths per cent. "This is the largest increase in the per cent, of attendance that has ever been shown in any one year since the reorganization of the attendance de partment. It demonstrates very clear ly that excellent results can be ob tained in- securing regular school at tendance through close and intelligent co-operation between the principals, the medical inspection department and the attendance department.” Two hundred tons of gold, worth $102,000,000 and occupying the space of three cords of wood, are stored in the United States assay office in New Yor'iC. The gold Is in 16,345 bars. It represents the accumulation of British sovereigns and other foreign coins brought to the United States within about six weeks in an effort to main tain the financial balance between European nations and the United States. The war has sent the prices of waste material soaring to such a height that this country has almost been swept bare of such products, according to reports received by the National Association of Waste Ma terial Dealers at its quarterly session in New York. Louis Birkensteln, president of the association, told the members that the process of recla mation here is akin to what ap parently is being done In Germany. "The demand for cotton for explosives and for cotton batting and llnters has resulted in reclamation work in cot ton waste products, which has made it possible to substitute many of these for the standard products ” said Mr. Birkensteln. "The reclaiming of Wool, jute and other fibres and ma terials for uses not obtaining in the past is going on steadily.” Because of default made in the pay ment at maturity on December 1, 1914, of all the collateral trust 6 per cent, three-year gold notes of the United Light & Power Company of New Jer sey, amounting to *1,618,000, and suc cessive defaults in the interest due beginning June 1, 1913, the Bankers Trust Company, as trustee, will sell at public auction on January 12 at the New York County Court House the collateral deposited and pledged to secure the notes.

Proxies aggregating 90 per cent, of the outstanding stock were voted yes terday in favor of the plan for a con solidation of the Riker & Hpgeinan Company and the United DrJg Com pany. This included the vote of the corporation for Riker & Hegeman stock. Despite the large majority in favor of the consolidation it was found necessary to adjourn for final decision until December 23. It was said that the delay was due to legal reasons. GERMAN SAVINGS BANK 772 BROAD STREET 4 PER CENT.

That practically 60 per cent, of the local school children start their life’s work without special training and grow into manhood and womanhood a drug on the labor market is set forth in the annual report of Assstt ant City Superintendent of Schools CepHis I. Shirley, who is in charge of the vocational schools. "Newark is a cosmopolitan city, with a school population of 70,000 pu pils," says Mr. Shirley. "In facing the problem of vocational and indus trial education in the city schools we are confronted with many difficulties and dangers. For economic and other reasons, a great number of our boys and girls leave the elementary schools annually, seeking financial aid in hundreds of avenues of em ployment. "About 60 per cent, go into the in dustries and the remainder into work not so classed. Practically all these boys and girls start their life's work with no special training; they are, in most cases, unable to carry the load of any responsibility, be the load ever so light. The occupation to which they fall frequently offers no training of value In their personal development. They grow Into man hood and womanhood a drug on the labor market, restless and unhappy, with a maximum earning capacity scarcely sufficient to furnish the bare necessities of life. Briefly, these con ditions will give some idea of the enormity of the problem that has come to be considered the function of the schools. "The work of the Boys’ Industrial School, now in the sixth year of its history, is well known. Under the leadership of Principal James E. Dou gan, the school has been developed to that point where the need for further enlargement is manifest. The confi dence In which the school is held by the official body, the Board of Educa tion, Is clearly shown by the adequate appropriation recently set aside for the erection of a new building to be devoted entirely to the needs of in dustrial and vocational education for boys. "The problem confronting the Girls’ Industrial School is similar in content to that of the Boys’ Industrial School, with this exception, exclusive of the subjects of domestic art, science and economics, considerably less is known of the industrial conditions and en vironment surrounding the employ ment of girls. Teacher Accomplishes Mach. “From its inception, the Girls’ In dustrial School has been under the care of Miss Griselda Ellis. Miss Ellis, an Indefatigable worker, has energized the work of this school, and has fully Justified the confidence re posed in her by the Board of Educa tion and the city superintendent. “As time passes, the Boys' Indus trial School will come to occupy an Important place in the educational affairs In this city. That it will prove a connecting link between the indus try and the school, there can be no doubt.” _ ’ According to Miss Ellis’ report 132 girls have been enrolled in the Girls’ Industrial School during the past year, and of this number thirty-five per cent, have been lost, either by be ing transferred or discharged. Miss Ellis’ report shows that the following nationalities have been en rolled in the school during the past year; Americans, 68; Italians, 23; Ger mans, 18; Austrians, 12; Russians, S; Irish. 4; English, 3; Polish, 1; Danish, 1; Chinese, 1; Hungarian, 1; Sicilian, 1, and Bohemian, 1. All these pupils, according to Miss Ellis, have been required to take cooking, sewing, design, arlthmeUc. English, civics, industrial geography and history. "Considering the fact that the school has been in operation such a short time, we feel that a great deal has been accomplished,” says Miss Ellis in her report. "We have man aged to make the lunchrooms self supporting since January, paying for our dally marketing of foods, and paying up our grocery, ice and milk bllte.” In her report Miss Ellis makes the following recommendations: Tho establishment of a class in the re modeling of garments, the appoint ment of a physician or physicians who would give a series of talks on i practical hygiene, the appointment of a woman to take charge of the physi cal training work, and the establish ment of an advisory board composed of men from the industries In the I city who would keep in touch with ! the work of the industrial school. "This would make it possible for us to keep our training up to the stand ard demanded by the employer," says Miss Ellis, referring to the latter recommendation. "During the year we have had employers apply to our school for girls in different lines of work. Our students were not ad vanced enough to accept some posi tions, but it is gratifying to realize that our school is becoming known. Five of our studf»itfi who have been compelled to go to work before fin ishing the course have been able to ! secure positions as keepers in the home, because of the knowledge and j training received at the school.

Buffalo Terminal Project Made the Occasion for Commerce Chamber Luncheon BUFFALO, Dec. 16.—The Buffalo Chamber of Commerce will give a luncheon today In honor of the com pletion of the first unit in the devel opment of its terminal facilities along scientific and businesslike methods. For more than twenty-five years BufTalo has wrestled with its ter minal problem. In the last few years the Terminal Commission has had the matter in hand, and through the ef forts of this organization, together with that of the Chamber of Com merce, the city administration, the newspapers and the rank and file of the citizens generally, definite results are now being accomplished. The first unit to be completed is the freight terminals of the Lehigh Val ley railroad, including an office build ing and a freight shed 600 feet long and extensive yards, team tracks, etc. The buildings are absolutely fire proof and are equipped with every modern idea in construction. While the freight station Is the first to be completed, every feature of the terminal development is making rapid progress. Both the Lehigh Val ley and the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western are building handsome passenger terminals, which will not only take care of their own service, but also some of the other railroads entering Buffalo, while It is probable at least one more passenger station will be erected. ' STOCK MARKET V—__ NEW YORK, Dec. 15. 10:30 a. m.—The feature of today's early trading, which was otherwise marked by considerable dimness, was the sale of several lots of Anglo French bonds without restriction at 94%. 1% under the price at which they were taken by the syndicate, and the minimum quotation recorded by this security. Special stocks, like Mercan tile Marine preferred. Studebaker and Texas Company, added substantially to yesterday’s material advances, while New York Central again led the rails. U. S. Steel was barely steady at the outset, but denoted ac cumulation later. In other divisions of the list no important changes were recorded.

I Initial difficulties, when the meadows were in such shape it was Impossible for wagons or men to bear refuse to spots which were to be filled, and It was necessary to build a track across the meadows, for which fills of lum ber, sometimes as deep as eighteen feet, had to be sunk. Telung about the leasing arrange ments. Mr. Hallock stated the leases will be so framed that buildings erected on leased acreage will revert to the city within a certain period after the expiration of the leases, if the latter are not renewed. All pre cautions to protect the city have been taken, he said. The first five leases will be at the rate of *500 an acre per year. Then the price will likely double. The city is assured suffi cient return on Its investment to pay interest and take care of the sinking . fund for the bond issue. The steamship piers will be leased on the basis of fifty years or longer, with a sliding scale of payments. "The Narrows are really an entrance to the ->ewark development,” said Mr. Hallock. He showed that the distance from them to Port Newark Terminal Is the same as to Thirty second street, New York. The city owns 1,150 acres of meadows. Of this area. 150 acres have been reclaimed and 100 have been reclaimed from the bay itself. A total of 250 acres is ready for leas ing now. The sites do not appear to attract the small manufacturers. Mr. Hallock stated. The smallest request has been for seven acres. One con cem has asked for 260 acres, to be ; shut off from the public. An extra strip of 100 acres may be purchased to put this deal through. There have been several Inquiries for 100 acres or more. Painter. Poor Spellers. How Newark Is represented throughout the country by 20,000 cel luloid backed blotters on whicb the word development is spelled “de velopement" was told by Mr. Hal lock. "Newark's spelling mistake has been pretty widely advertised.” he said. “The first Port Newark Ter minal sign contained the word incor rectly spelled. I ordered another erected and then I received a nice letter from a school teacher telling me that, too, had the word Incorrectly spelled, but by that time the blotters had gone out. A new sign has been erected bearing little else than the words ‘Port Newark Terminal-.” The reclaimed area Is at present oc cupied by 100 freight cars almost every day, Mr. Hallock stated. This Is partly due to the fact that the Pennsylvania railroad is turning over twenty-five to fifty cars of refuse to the city daily.
