® j Superintendents in Monthly
Conference Discuss Modern
Educational’ Problems.
Various phases of high school
activities, its purposes and its service
to the community, formed the back
ground for several discussions on
educational development before the
monthly conference of superinten
dents, supervisors, principals and
teachers, held at the Girls’ Industrial
.School yesterday afternoon.
Til opening- the discussion Dr. Addi
son B. Poland, city superintendent of
schools, who presided, said he had
I considered that it would be a popular
thing to start the new year with a
i ( eview of the local high schools. He
contended that there has been a lack
of encouragement among the princi
pals of the elementary schools toward
pupils who are about to enter the
high schools.
“.Vo principal should think that his
work is completed when his pupils
a prepared to enter the high schools,
hut, instead, should consider that his
work is just begun. There should be
more encouragement given the pupils
an additional co-operation between
the elementary and high schools,"
snld Dr Poland.
* Speaking on “The Co-operation of
Different Depart uents." William
if.-ie- principal ol lii- Central Com
inercuu imi: .Manual j raining Mign
School, sa'd:
"The value of a school is measureil
directly by its power to serve tDo com
munity. Such service is limited by
two factors— the obligation to supply
directly the needs of the public and.
secondly, the necessity for intelligent
eo-operation within the school walls
The attainment of the first is usually
accomplished by carefully-planned
curricula, or courses of study. The
attainment of the second is a far more
* difficult proposition. Inasmuch ns the
first has in the past received careful
consideration, it follows that the ser
vice efficiency in the school itself
must he made to grow to such an ex
tent that the school product, the
graduate nr attendant will he enabled
to properly function towards the
world's opportunities.
( “Curricula have unfortunately been
Interpreted as consisting of unit
Courses of study instead of unifying
elements. This has led to the mo
noplization of the pupils' efforts by
teachers of strong personality to the
educational detriment of the pupils
"Thus there is produced a weak
educational development nlong certain
i lines and overtraining along others,
despite the fact that an equal number
of hours may be assigned to each of
tho subjects. Sporadic instances of
correlation appear in systems where
vigorous minded teachers feel the
urge of the new educational Impetus.
Strange to say. supervisory and ad
ministrative forces bound by the
shackles of traditional methods or
shocked by the boldness of the Inno
vation that tends to make modern
education effective, have hitherto hin
dered and checked tlm unifying eor
felating, co-ordinating processes.
' "A new day I- dawning; educational
liberty and freedom are making them
selves felt. Occasionally a teacher
happily discovers relations between
his classes and those of his co-work
ers. correlating the efforts of his de
partment with those of others. Vet
there does not appear the •eelprocal
reaction from other departments or
the basis of a connecting link between
“In other words, in tho above, oo
relation or correlation happens, but
■0-operation or educational co-ordi
nation does not occur until the rene
tion between the teaching depart
ments become continually reciprocal.
* It is this latter aim for which we
must constantly strive.”
Dr. Cornon'M AiliIrfttH.
Dr. David B. Corson, first assistant
city superintendent of schools, took
as his topic "The Broadening Pur
pose.” He said it was the duty of a
republic to educate tbe masses and
' this is being accomplished through
the public high schools. Ho con
tended the earlier schools in this
country only educated the pupils of
a literary type, while the newer
schools provide opportunities to those
of a commercial and vocational turn
of mind as well as those interested
in literary matters.
Dr. Corson told of the growth of
the nigh schools in this country,
which lie contended had increased
considerably. He said prior to the
Civil War there were only forty
four schools of this type in this conn
try in 1870 there were 180. in 1S80.
'00; in 1800, 2.526; in 1000, 0,000. and

ncreased 76 per cent, between 1000
and 1010, and in this State the en
rollment has doubled in the last ten
In his discourse Wayland T'..
Stearns, principal of Barringer High
School who spoke on "Welfare Work
lo Reduce Retardation and Elimina
tion.” said: "There are a great many
misfits among the pupils attending
nigh schools. Tliero seems to be a
certain glnmour about the college
preparatory course to certain pupils.
• r have turned many away from this
course and urged them to take others
and some pupils I have influenced to
enter business. 1 do not get all ‘het

have a good Job.”

Will Build Culvert to Aid
Mosquito Commission
John W. oDobbins, chief inspector
for the Essex County .Mosquito Ex
termination Commission, said today
that James C. Hailock. assistant city
engineer, had agreed to build a cul
vert under the extension of Avenue K,
in the meadow section of the Tenth
ward, in order that the work of drain
ing the meadows, undertaken at a
heavy cost by the commission, should
not be made valueless.
Mr Dobbins went to the meadows
yesterday afternoon and conferred
with Mr Hailock. explaining that the
construction of the street extension
between Dorcmus avenue and Dc
iancev street would dead-end a twen
tv-seven inch drain, which now car
ried the surface water from lira

Liquor Dealers' Association
Employe Is Said to Be
_... i
John t\ .McLaughlin, president of
the Newark Retail Liquor Dealers’
Protective Association, said today
that a charge of embezzlement will be
made against Theodore Achterman,
of 151 Abinger place, missing collector
for the organization. An audit of
Achterman's accounts is under way
to find out the amount of the alleged
According (o Mr. McLaughlin, oili
cera of ihe association have been un
able to Had Achterman at his home
and have learned that ho left the ciyt
several days ago. They had knowl
edge of a shortage last week, but
took no action, on the collector's
promise that it would be made good
in a few days.
Achterman was employed to collect 1
the annual due- of $12 from each
member of the association, and It Is
believed he withheld about $400 dur
ing the past eight or nine months.
Frederick II. Roever, financial secre
tary of the association, is collecting
the individual books of the members
to ascertain the amount of the short
age. Those which have so far been
turned in, Mr. McLaughlin said to
day, show a shortage of $97.
Sir. Roever is said to have discov
ered a deficit of $3 in Achterman's
accounts last week, and reported the
matter to the other offleers. who ques
tioned the collector. The latter is
said to have admitted taking the
money, but to have promised that he
would return it.
He made an appointment to meet
them Tuesday to discuss the short
age, but failed to keep the appoint
ment. An Investigation showed that
he was not at his home, in Abinger
place. Achterman is married, but lias
no children. He has been in the em
ploy of the Liquor Dealers' Associa- i
tion for about two years.
As a collector, he was under a $1,000
bond, furnished by the Fidelity and
Deposit Company, of Maryland, a
bonding concern. (!. VV. Lamoreuux, '
local agent for the company, at bit
Market street, was notified. Mr.
Lnmoreaux said today that lie lias
not taken any criminal action, as he
has not yet received proof of the
If Achteiman does not muke a set - j
tlement of his accounts, Mr. Mc
Laughlin said, a warrant will be
sworn out for his arrest, charging
him with the embezzlement of what

Mrs. Achterman was not at home :
when an Evening Star reporter called
today. Neighbors said Achterman
had not been seen for a week. The

Widely-Known Football Referee
Stricken in Williamsport—Re
sides in Newark Y. M. C. A.
- j
“Tom" Crooks, the former football j
star for the University of Pennsyl
vania, and who this season has acted ;
as referee for a number of college
games on the gridiron, is ill with
scarlet fever in a private ward in the
Williamsport, Pa.. Hospital.
Mr. Crooks, when not on the road
for the big saslj and door manufac
turing concern conducted by his
father nnd brothers at Williamsport,
makes his home at the Young Men’s
Christian Association building on
Halsey street, this city.
When the genial football expert de- 1
parted for his home just before '
Christmas to spend the holidays with i
his family, he was apparently in j
the best of health, and anticipated a !
joyous time. Shortly before New
Year’s information was received by his i
friends here that he had been
stricken with the disease.
While doubts exist as to where Mr. I
Crooks contracted the fever, it is ho- j
lieved that he became infected with
the dangerous germs while on a brief
visit to his old friends at the Unlver- I
sttv of Pennsylvania, either just he- j
fore he left this city or after he had
departed and stopped off to call at
a university fraternity house on his ,
way to Williamsport.
H. M. Ward, a member of the
junior class of the Wharton school of
the university, died yesterday after
noon In a Philadelphia hospital of
scarlet fever. Ward’s deatli is one of
several nmong students of the uni
versity since Christmas, when an epi
demic of fever struck the university
and resulted in the isolation of a
ward in the University Hospital and
the quarantining of a fraternity
Ward was a son of George S. Ward,
of 155 Riverside drive, New York, the
president of the former Brooklyn
Federal baseball club, and during his
freshman year he played on the class
baseball team.
H. J. Bowman, another student in
the hospital, was reported much im
proved last, night.
Friends of Mr. Crooks were much
relieved yesterday to hear that lie
had a modemtely light attack of the
fever. He is unmarried nnd has a|
wide circle of friends in this city'. j
