Civil war tradition was forgot- Jn in the bustle of the chilly rail- oad station as the flag and its hree-man escort departed, at- ended only by the usual group of ommercial travelers.

Many Dropped Out Glenn Gilbert brought out that under the old system the students were just dropped into the ninth to twelfth grades and they became discouraged and about 25 per cent o£ them dropped out Mr. Krager asserted that the dropping out percentage was even higher. Evron Karges, Y. M. C. A. boys work director, commented on the fact that under the present system in Mason City the students are required to adjust themselves three times because they enter several buildings. Mr. Krager explained that it required from four to six months adjustment when the student transfers from one building to another. rj T _, ~° -M i s s Florence O'Leary, high KepOrted at GaiTlPr school home economics teacher, ^ vjamer n e between the states more than years ago. Others Also Veterans 70 omcs e a c e r , expressed her appreciation of the proposed junior high school system as the ninth grade students are small and find it hard to get around. The The others--both republicans are State Senator B. C. Whitehill and State Representative James A. Lucas, chairmen of the military affairs committees of their respective bodies. Whitehill is a Spanish-American war veteran and Lucas a veteran of the World war. "You can't take that in the car with you," a porter told Whitehill as he climbed on board with the bulky flag. "That rides with us," replied firmly, and it did. Discovered in Museum The banner was discovered in the Iowa historical department here where it had been placed by a mischievous Iowa soldier who lifted" it from a public building in Montgomery, Ala., in the wake of the Civil war. It took a legislative resolution to empower the museum to surrender the flag, and for a time it appeared tne ladies of the G. A R and the Daughters of the Confederacy might come to an open clash over the subject. Finally, the legislature voted to send a special delegation just to make sure the aged banner got to Alabama. They were given $250 expense money. ig was the symbol of the He of Alabama for three Alabama's Interested in Work -..^ home economics teacher explained that her subject has a stimulating effect on girls and they are happy and interested in their work. She pointed out that food and clothing subjects are the chief interests of the girls. Marion E. Olson, county agricultural extension agent, pointed out that the objective of the school system is to eliminate disciplinary problems and create interest in work. Mr. Krager stressed the statement by saying that in the new system more interest will be created. R. B. Irons, superintendent of schools, explained that Mason City is going to have a school system and not three separate units He also pointed out that a set of courses was being planned to carry through the entire system and the counsel of both the grade and high school teachers will be used. Can Be Combined In answer to Mr. Karges' inquiry as to the cost over the present system, Mr. Irons explained that the school will not have many more teachers and some classes can be combined. He asserted that the average number of students in a_class for the highest efficiency is 3D. C. W. Barlow, county attorney, brought out the fact that it cost SD,OOO to put a criminal behind the bars and $450 to keep him there, therefore the cost of education would not be too much. Aj Bartsch, manual training teacher, outlined his subject to the group and explained that the shop setup was exploring in junior high and specializing in high school. Should Get Acquainted A n o t h e r outstanding point brought out in the discussion was the need for the teacher to get acquainted with the students before attempting to teach them anything. Mr. Irons explained that this was necessary and the teacher Is Ousted for should spend a week or 10 days in getting acquainted with the in- ·» wtisrea FOr tactual background of the . t «- Wiring Sbcks The swimming pools at the two ' new schools came in for a share of the discussion.

An explanation of the old type o school units was shown by Mr Krager who pointed out that ther were two groups, the elementarj which included the first to eight! grades inclusive, and the second ? ry i«£ hich held the mnth t twelfth grades inclusive. Had No Connection The Mason City principal point ed out that the two units wer separate and abrupt, having n gradual connection with eacl other. In the modified adjustment sys tern, he pointed out, the first t sixth grades were considered ele mentary and the tenth to twelftl grades were secondary. The sev enth eighth and ninth grades wer the transition section in whicl study subjects were selected ti overlap the elementary aw sec ondary sections and ease the stu de " t in 'o high school subjects: Taking the transition section alone, Mr. Krager explained tha elementary subjects are taught in the seventh and eighth grades am secondary studies are selected fo the ninth grade.
