When he got on he testified that he asked Smith the num ber of Ii' ca ali 'M I and received Ihe ro ly " iial's till ti you?" He then remarked thai they were In an awful hurry it .seemed lo which Smilh replied "O. 1 don't know."

He (bought It all ended there lit- said. There was much talk ing along Ihe ride be said, but h" de nied that lie said lie would punch Smith In the mouth or anything else about "mouth." He declared that Smith called hltn many bad names and kept calling him "freshle." and that when he asked for a transfer, although he was niving Ihein out lo others, he told him that live everything else was In So great a hurry he could wait for his.

WILL NEED NEW BUILDING New (irailc Caniiot lie Added, SI Present Miillilltij; Has No Sparc Hooni Atnlliilde. i The agitation In West Haven for a i high school course of four year.; which I has been going oil for six years seems J to he about, to win recognition as a i largo majority of the people me lak ! lug active slops to have the extra year added, There Is a petition lo the board of euucallou going the , round from house to house now that, askn for the higli school of four years. II lias n. iiiimlier of signers gathered during ihe few days It bus been rlrcula I lug and a large number more whom II. has not readied yet are anxiously waiting, pen In hand, to affix their autograph. Six years ago, F.dgar Stileti started a movement for the Increase to tour years but It fell through for lack of support, F.very year alnce then ef forts have been made to gain favora ble action on ihe matter but none has resulted. Last year It was regarded as a more or less sure thing, but again something happened. A numher ot those Interested In vlow of the action In the New Haven high school of de ciding to bar tuition scholars, pushed Hie matter with zeal and it was put j Into definite form. Tim petition says that although the excellent management of the school Is ; recognized, there Is a decided lack In tlie educational system and fourth year In tli" ltleh school la wanted. There Is another consideration that llln lllllie ill " hi ill lie. inaii.-i, that of tuition scholars for West Ha ven. The Westvllle high schoo pupils, who will no longer be able to go to the New Haven high school as tuition scholars under the new ruling might be glad to go under the same condi tions to the West Haven high school. The money that even a few of such might bring would aid materially in a small high school as the West Haven. The petition a-sked for a new grade for September, !!()!. One of the pe titioners said "that there will have to be a new high school soon, probahly In 1910, and that the extra grade will most likely he held until then." For ) ears there has been dissatis faction over the three year high school. Pupils wli.i wanted to go to college had to go to New Haven high school or Hopkins grammar school and pay tuition. The Inconvenience of changing schools and the distance to travel have been two other com plaints. The present high school building la well filled, and If the fourth year were added only the library could be taken for It, which, of course, would be extremely impracticable, and so the fourth year, If It comes, will have, to come with the new building. Those hacking the movement have taken action only ,v far as circulat ing the petition is concerned. This will be taken before the proper au thorities as soon as possible.
