URGE SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION BURAL SCHOOLS COST OUT OF PROPORTIOX TO GOOD DOXE, Hare Few Scbools and Make Them Good—Lanre Audience Heard DIgeassioB. B T. Falrchlld. state superlntenilcnt ot public Instruction is this afternoon talking to a larpe audience in the high • BCbool auditorium cm. •Consolidated Rural Schools." Every school officer and teacher in the county received a special invitation to attend this lec ture. The matter of consolidating the rural schools is being agitated a great deal by many of the prominent educators of this state. Superintendent Pairchild has been traveling over the state giving lectures advocating the merging of countrj- schools. Supt. Falrchlld stated in »n Interview today that the rural schools are costing far too much for wh.it they are doing for the pupils, "In lo'a." he said, "basing on the enrollment the average cosfjs of mplntalning the schools was perhaps $1.35 per capita, or with the rostJ, of maintaining the country schools, not taking into consideration that they are inferior In the country, he says, the aver age cost of maintaining a school Is ii per capita, based upon the enrollment, and J7 on the dally attendance. "In the little schools you*will read Ily see it costs a great deal more than In the larger ones," continued Mr. Falrchi'd. . "Seventy per cent of the school children attend the country schools. This considered, sholild we neglect them?" Too much attention haa been Riven to our unlverBitii »s and high schools within the past ten years." "Now there nro S,30C schools districts In this state. In two thousand nine hundred of them, the enrollment Is twenty or livs. In flftoen hundred morr' the averaged enrollment Is between five and ten :In fourteen hundred the enro'lment is hptween ten and fifteen.^ Bo.sldes there are one hundred and seventy rural districts In Kansas where there are no schools at all. "Th( se little schools offer no attrac tions whatever for the pupils after they have reached the ages when the law does not enforce them to attend with the result that cney either leave or are sent to the cities. If the pupils are sent away to school, it means that the farmer must pay a double tax, that of the rural district and the city •where he pay tuition so that his child may receive an education. >t.v idea Is to have fewer schools and better ones^ Their adrantages are: "In.sures a much larger ptrcentage ot erumerated pupils enrolled. Reduces tardiness to a minimum. Reduces Irregular attendance. Pupils can be better classified and graded. Pupils can have the advantages of better school rooms— better heated, better ventilated and better supplied with apparatus. The plan Insures closer Buper .ision of the superintendent. It permits a better grading of the school and b?tter classification of the pupl's. It affords an opportunity for thorough •work in special branches, such af draw ing, music and nature study, aliw as elynenUry agriculture. It offers the I'oor to more weeks of schooling, and to schools ot higher grade. It offers the opportunity for longer terms. • It offers a broader companionship and the culture that comes from association. It jiuickens public Interest in the fchoois. By this plan the farm apain, as of old, becomes the idea' j)!acc to bring up the children, givlnr Ibcm the advantages of centers d popn'ation and to spend their evenings at ^ome. All the <g>fldren have the saitie chances for higher educational advantages whSdi under the present plan only a smbll per cent are able to get. and that ontr by leaving home and foing to the city. By consolidation wj are taking a long step fonr^d In ' developing tbe problem. 'How to keep the boy» on thef arm.'

MORONYAFTERTHEM FOR.VEB lOLA MIXISTER IX REFORM MOVEMEXT OX WEST SIDE. On a Committee to InTrstlgato Cora phiints Agaln.st .Matcrniiy Hospitals. Rev. L. O Moroiiy. formerly lastor of St. Timothys church of, this city and who is well known to lolu people. Is one of the leaders In a movement among the ministers and churches of Kansas City.. K.is.. to Investigate the private maternity hospitals on the West Side. Tlie investigation was begun by the probation officers of the juvenile courts of the East Side and West §ide to wlioin laany women had made complaint. The Ministers' .\8so- r-iatitin of the West S de has now taken up the matter ami has decided to make a thorough investigation. The rommittee of the association on i>ublic morals, of which Kcv. Morony is a member, met yesterday afternoon and discussed complaints • that had been made. Today's Kansas City Times has the following to say of the results of the investigation of the committee: An investigation of the maternily hospitals on the West Side is to be made by the ministers' alliance. If the complaints made against the places are true, mem jers of the alliance, say. prosecution's will follow. The Rev. L. G. .Morony. the Rev. A. Noble James and the Rev. Robert U. Wolf, the committee of the alliance on public morals, met yesterday afternoon. After bearing complaints that babies were neglected and that the .ieath rate was very high the committee decided to make a careful investigation before next Tuuaduy, the date -it its next meeting. In the last six months the records in •he Wyandotte county clerk's office diow that thirty-one Infants died at :naternlty hospitals and that tho coun- y pjild $:;74.ri(i for the burial Of these Infants. The charge for each burial ranges from $12.r.O to $iri. The death rale was greater in tho summer months. WAS FIXED BEFORE HAND. What Moran Herald Says of Appoint ment of County Assessor. (Moran Herald.) The county ni^ses.^or plum has been Iropped at Humboldt, the appoint ment bsing made Wednesday by the commissioners, who gave the place o Charles Schaffner. For an office hat doo.s not carry more emolument than this nt-wly created office does, here w?re more candidates than one might expect, there being about a dozen willing to sacrifice them selves upon the altar of their country. The balloting of the commissioners resembled a lot of rabbit tracks made in the freshly fallen snow. That such a lot of twisting around could have been done without premedita- lon. noiiody who has watched the proceedin=s of that body of officials within the last year, believes. That it was done to try and fool tlie peo- ile is a foregone conclusion. It was expected a Democrat would be named, but even the Democratic commission- rs would have their constituents to ijelieve that it was a difficult proposi tion for them to decide among so many good men. But if the truth cou 'd be known the Herald ventures the assertion that the Democratic commisioners knew just as well before the balloting began how it would proceed as they did after it was all over.
