Chicago, Dec. 21. -Members of the school maiiHgement committee of the board of education in Chicago want no "educational fads and frills" taught in the public schools. They are for going back to the "homely stud if.." of our fathers. Mrs. Klla Fiaira Young, su perintendent of schools, is in favor of manual training, domestic science, phy sical culture and such things. The war is on. The . committee passed a renlution last night abolishing almost everything but reading, writing, arithmetic, spell ing, grammar. American history and geography. To-day Mr. Flagg Voting started a campaign to have the resolu tion thrown out by the larger board. The issue will be settled at the board's next meeting. "Every time I start-to do anything,' Mrs. Young said to-day, "there is i committee appointed to take it out of my hands. It makes one wonder if the sueprintendent is to be allowed to do anything." The continued teaching of cooking, sewing, bookbinding, rattan work, clay modelling and similar things are at stake. Many of these features have been introduced by Mrs. Young.
