"Tha Public School is a Civic Cen ter," wag the eti'bject discussed at Grannlss hall, Strong school, last even ing. It was a meeting for men and was free. Ex-Alderman S. J. Langley presided. He said that through the board of education this hall had been thrown open for the use of the people and be said this was a' step In the right direction. He spoke of the work of the civic societies, under whose ef forts these meetings are being held. He then Introduced Prof. Charles F. Kent of Yale university, who spoke on "The Public School a Civic Center." - Speaking of municipal government, he said the tendency was too much ma chinery and too little efficiency. "The spirit of the forefathers was against too much government control. That came to us from the pioneers. But things have changed In a century and a half. People are now living In thickly-peopled settlements. All of this re quired a readjustment. We are natur ally tenacious of Old institutions. But it is true that we must enlarge and we must readjust. Society has become a close unit. "We cannot take a club arid say you must be social. The first and ane attempt Is to find out if there Is dissatisfaction In our civic life. We must also meet this army of the dls atisfled. "The state must do. more for Its cli Uens. We are still in many ways In the eighteenth century In our civic life. We have failed to meet the Indus trious but poor citizen. We are to cater to the needs of the people In the congested districts. The guild house is a popular Institution In Chicago. It Is not a charity, but a work for and by the people. "Now why fannot this work be done In a city like this In the seh7olhouses? In several of our centers the public schools have been thrown open for lee- ' tures for the people. They are but the beginning of adopting the school house ' as a guild house. Next to the outlay In our churches, 1 do not know of so large a sum of money expended with so little utilising of the property for the use of the people, as the Investment In our school property. It would seem therefore, that we coulj utilize our school houses as a center for the peo ple I can see no reason why the school nouses could not be used for our elec tions. Perhaps we would have to close our schools one day for these elections, but that would do n harm. The publle schools might be utilized as distrlout- ' ing centers for the free public library. The sehoolhouse m'.ght be utilized In , tertain!T!ents fc- the people, dramatic and musical. The use of the school houses might be given to boys' clubs. " "Why not go a step rurther and have our schools the place for the as sembling of our men for discussions? It would be a place where we could help each 'other vastly. Some of these things It would seem, are some of the things to which our school house-might be devoted. New Haven might thus be a center of great Influence and watch ed with Interest by other communi ties." Superintendent F. H. Beede spoke oh 'The School and the Citizen." He said he 'belleveoj there was an oppor tunely for using the school , houses more efficiently for the use of the peo ple. There were many ways In the future In which the people could use the school houses. He ppoke of the loss of attendance of pupils up to the sixth grade. He said the first three grades remained about the same, but coming fo the fourth grade there was a distinct faMing off and this con tinued to the sixth grade. There was also a falling off In the seventh grade. He Said that the first grad-? started with about 2, BOO children and the number graduated was only about 250. Superintendent Beede read extracts showing some of the falling off In attendance of pupils In other cities. He said that something should be done to fcfceu the children in the pub lic schools. One great reason for leaving the schools was because many pupils do not like book study. But to go to work, schools should give something that would appeal to the Interest of these pupils so as to kep them In the schools. Something In the line of manual training would doubtless interest them. There are great num'bers of the Immigrants coming Intoour city, tmt I do not look upon that with alarm. The chil dren of these people make Just as bright pupils as any. We should ed ucate them so that when they go out they shall be capable citizens. Many are leaving the school at an early age and go out and take up unskilled la bor. This Is a great lack. They he come discontented. Now it Is for the Interest of the people that children should remain In school until they be come well learned, so that whn they go out they can secure good positions. It may be better that they te trained in manual lines, but they should be educated and well equipped. The concluding address was tiy Principal J. C. Knowlton of Winches ter district, on "Recreation Centers." The addresses throughout were most Interesting and the meeting was great ly appreciated by the audience. many left the schools He thought that the THREE ENTRIES RECEIVED. OBITUARY NOTES John L.

The petition follows: To the Honorable Board of Aldermen of New Haven, Gentlemen: The undersigned have been appointed by the New Haven Medical association to present to your honorable body the following facts relative to the fountain that has been presented to the city through the will of the late Philo S. Bennett: The fountain stands In an important point of our city as an artistic product and it seems to our association that it should not only minister to the artistic sense but It should alsu ne of the high est hygienic utility to the public. Above all things it should be so equip ped that it may not Jeopardize the comfort and health of the people which It was intended to promote. In this connection we note with strong disapproval that a plan has been presented to your body for supplying this fountain with water from a well In the near proximity to drainage both from the surface and from sewers and houses. The use of wells for drinking purposes has been abandoned for many years In all thickly settled cities and for our city to revert to a method that has proved so disastrous in the past would mark us as either careless of the health of our citizens or Ignorant ot the teachings of elementary science. We suggest that the water supplied at the fountain should be the same as that supplied to our homes by the pub lic purveyors. Vie also request that the fountain be supplied with sanitary facilities for drinking, of the same general nature as are now used in the public -schools or this city and In all the more progres sive towns where the common supply might be contaminated by personal contact. This can be done without harming the artistic value of the, foun tain and at a cost that will be less In the end than the cup now used; As tax-payers we wish to protest against the spending of money for pumps and electric or other power that Is entirely unnecessary and that would simply cumber that portion of the green and that would entail a yearly expense thnt would be considerable and thai Is needed for other purposes.
