THE Itl'itAL HCllOOUi The rural schools of Josephine county are ready to begin another year of work. Some of them will open Monday, September 8, but many will not open until the 15th. Realiz ing the shortage to be experienced In the teaching force this year County Superintendent Alice M. Bacon mads a special effort In the training school whlcrh closed last week, to train and fit local girls who were eligible for teaching so they would be caitable to do the work required In the rural district. In tho training school spe cial stress was laid on the work in tho lower grades, which Is so Im portant for tho rural teacher. Exam inations were recently given In he office of the superintendent and temporary certificates granted to seven applicant until the December examinations are held. There are still, however, seven or eight vacan cies In tho county. The rural school of today is a threat Improvement over the one of a few years ago. Due to the persls tence of the county superintendent the school buildings have been In many cases remodeled and thorough ly renovated. The windows have been changed In a number of school houses so as to eliminate the cross lighting and bring the building up to the requirements of a: standard school. Paint and soap and water have worked wonders on the Inter iors of others of the rooms. Window, boxes and curtains are being used hy some districts to make their schools more cheerful and comfort able.. Since the passage of the new law requiring school attendance un til the 16th year, unless the eighth grade has 'been completed, the rural districts will all undoubtedly make school life more attractive so there TKACIIKILS OF IU Dist.

A. H. LEA, Secretary, Salem, Oregon will not b suoh a struggle to keep the boys and girls In sch'jol. Different kinds of band work Is being Introduced and work benches are to be provided In many of the schools so the ftilldren will have some practice In actual construction. Along with the hand work, hot lunohes are coming to be recognized a neceseary, and valuable tratnlcg in domestic science can be obtained when the girl of a rural school plan and prepare some hot dish each day for the school lunch. . There Is a great call for super-, vised play and pley ground equip ment. The rural teacher Is expect ed to spend the rocoases on the play ground with the children to make sure they are spending this time for recreation In the proper way. The work of the boys and girls In dustrial clubs offered through the Oregon Agricultural College will be conduct! this year through the rural dlHtricU and all the actual work will be supervised by the ru ral schools. Three district In the county have offered a salary of $100 per month for teachers who have an all round training and who would carefully su pervise the play ground and hand work. As yet teachers have not been obtained for any of these schools The older teachers, who have years of experience behind them have an advantage over the younger ones who are Just entering the profes sion, hut If they refuse to fall In line with the new ideas and the more advanced methods In training, they will find themselves supplanted by thn more progressive. Superintendent Bacon has received the new course of study for the high school, and the elementary courses will be mailed to all teachers as soon as they arrive. There has been a change In the text books used this year end the new- books may be se cured at any of the drug stores In Grants Pass, old books being taken In exchange.

GOOD NEWS FOR TOURISTS Will Predict Highway Conditions Just It Predicts tha Weather Serv ice Is for Encouragement of Cross country Transportation of Freight In Motortrucks Tried Out With Success In Few States. By approval of the secretary of agriculture of a suggestion made by Its chief, Charles F. Marvin, a new activity has been added to the work of the weather bureau. It Is to be known as the highway weather serv ice. Every automobile tourist will re joice at this. The service Is for bim I and for the encouragement of 'cross-1 country transportation of freight Id! motortrucks. It will have to do with: making reports on the condition of j roads from day to duy, as well as probabilities of sunshine or storm along them. Tried out with success In a few states, the service Is to be operated throughout the country on lines sim ilar to forecasting weather. Road In formation and the weather, prediction will be given on the same card. This meuns that an automoblllat can consult the weather bureau card or call up a local branch and ascer tain what kind of "going" Is ahead of him on his Intended route, or can get that information In the post offices of the villages en route where the card) for the day are always on view. Bene fit of such Information and the ease with which it may be bad will be ap preciated by every man wbo bas tried to And ont road conditions from local Information. Cover Important Highways. This Information will have to do at first wltti the most Important high ways and In most Inclement seasons for the particular region. In New York state, Pennsylvania, New Jer sey, Ohio and western states where there has been request for It the service will be given for main roads from early fall, through the winter and spring until all fear of snow bas passed. In the South where the through roads are of dirt the season or tne worst rains win oe coverea and In sections where such roads abound and storms are more frequent It will be practically continuous. So far 12 states and the District of Columbia, through local highways au thorities or automobile associations, have asked for the main 'roads and bad season service. Conspicuous by Its absence from the list Is New England, from whose states no request has come, owing. It is surmised, to the limited nse of uu tomobiles in thut section in the time of heavy snows. It was not until a demand for u daily road condition report had come to (lie weather bureau from many parts of the cour-ry thut Mr. Marvin made his proposal to the hoed of the aiiiicul turul department. He had the Indorse ment of the American Association of State Highway Officials. One of the first requests came from the New York State Automobile asso ciation. It was followed by those of the American Automobile association and the New York State Motor federa tion. These organizations stressed the need of government road reports like the weather forecast announcements to cover the highway between Albany ::nd Buffalo, with ns much extension of service as could be given, particu larly In bad weather.
