Topeka, , Sept, 6.—Kansas schools are to bo kept going despite the war emergency and the permanent income amendment to support state educational institutions will be endorsed by every member of the Slate Teachers Association, every member of the State Council ofi Defense and by the state board of education' according to the enthusiastic reception those measures received by the representatives at the conference 91' the several educational branches- in conference at the state houssvyesierday. Lee Harrl- Bon, of Kansas'lUty, Kansas, Superintendent R. A.' Kent of Lawrence and Albert Dickens, at the head Qt the Horticultural Department of the State Agricultural College wero among the principle speakers to ncgo the expediency of all (lie schooling possible and of the will tax, In addition the following statement' of Major Blaynoy which has been warmly endorsed by the war department was eiithusfaelio- ly received as well as the accompanying warning of England and message ^of France which Major Blayuey urges every parent and every teacher to consider and take to heart. "Perhaps the most glaring fault uotod in aspirants to the Officers Reserve Corps and pne that m|£ht he corrcoted by proper - attention In our high schools, preparatory schools and colleges, might be characterized by the general "word "Stouchinoss." J refer to what wight be termed a raeutal and physical indifference. } luive ob.serye<} nj|ny ofjferwlpp W«Yl lent men who have failed because', has cost many men tktlr commls- In our school system sufficient emphasis is not placed upon the avoidance of this mental and physical handicap. In the work of the better Government- Military Schools or the world,.this slackness In thought, presentation, and bearing la not tolerated because the aim of all military training is aecuraoy,' At military camps throughout the country, mental alert- nesB, accuracy in thinking and act- lng, clearness in enunciation, sttreness and ease of carriage and hearing must be insisted upon, for two reasons: that success may be assured as near as human effort can guarantee it with the material and means at hand, and that priceless human lives may not be criminally sacrificed. Onlf by the possession of the qualities referred to, doeB one become a natural leader. . "A great number of jnen have fails* | at camps, because of their inability to articulat# clearly. A man who cannot Impart his Idea to his command in clear distinct language and with sufficient Volume of voice to be heard reasonably far, is not qualified to give commands upon which human life will depend. Many men disqualified by this handicap might have becomo officers under their country'" Hag had they been properly trained In school and college. It is to be hoped therefore, that more emphasis will bo placed upon the basic principles of elocution In. the training of our youth, Even without prescribed training in elocution a great improvement couM be wrought by the instructors In pur schools and colleges, regardless 01< slons at camp. Three months Is too short a time In which to teach an In- 'corrlglbl e \ 'beater-about-the-bush' that therg is -but one way to answer a question oral or written, and that is. positively, clearly, and • accurately. The form of the oral answer In our schools should be made, an Important consideration ot instruction. . "1 have further -hojed''; that even some of bur..better military schools hare, turned out products that while many of them may have the bearing of a soldier in ranks, yet their carriage is totally indifferent as soon as they 'fall out' Schools, military and non-military, should place more insistence upon the bearing ot pupils all the, time. It should become a second naturo with,them to walk and carry themselves with the bearing of an officer and a gentleman. This again is a characteristic that cannot be acquired in a short time, and, when coupled with other disqualifying elemouts, has mitigated against the success of men, Messago of France: •'Do not let the needs of the hour, however demanding, or its burdens, however heav£ or its perils, however threatening, or its sorrows, however hcart-brealclng, make wou unmindful of thtt. defense of tomorrow, of those disciplines through which the individual may ho#o freedom, through which an efficient democracy Is possible, through which the institutions of civilization can be perpetuated and strengthened. Conserve, endure taxation and privation, suffer and sac- the subject, insisting that all answers'" rlflce, to assure to these men you be given In a loud, clear, well-rounded voice, which of course, necessitates the opening of the mouth and free movement of the lips. It Is remarkable how luauy excellent men Buffer from this handicap, and how almost impossible It is to correct this after the formative years of lite. "In addition to this physical disability and Blouchiness is what might be termed, glouchlness of mental attitude. Many men fall to measure up to thereQUiremenU set tor our Officers' Reserve because they have not heen trained to appreciate the importance of. accuracy Jn thinking. Too many schools are satisfied with an approximate niprwer to a question. Little orlpo incentive is given increased mental effort tQ co-ordinate gjie's ideas apd present thorn clearly and unequivocally. Insistence upon decision In thought and expression must never be lost tight of. This requires eternal vigilance 00 the part Of every teacher.

Fiuley, Commla- sipner of Education of New York Stale, in hi* Report on French Schools in \Vlr Time. Warning of Kuglaud: "At the beginning of the war, when first the shortage of labor became apparent, a raid was made upon the schools, a great raid, a successful raid, a raid started by a large body of unreflecting opinion. The result of that rait) upon the BChoule has been that hundreds of children in thh) country ba^ve been prematurely withdrawn from school, W"! hare suffered an Irreparable damage, a. damage which it will be quite impossible for us hereafter adequately to repair. That is a very grave and distressing symptom."--H. A. U Fisher, President of the English Board of Education.

"As a last Important element that seems to me has been lacking in the moral and mental make-up of some of our students, Is the characteristic ot 'grit.' Not that they would haye proven cowardly lu battle, necessarily, hut somo have exhibited a tendency to yirow up the spongo upon the administration of a severe rebuke or criticism. Their 'feelings have bean hurt' and they resign. They'are not ready for the rough edges oft life.

PART OP NEW SWITCH YARDS Whicb (he Railroad Had Planned to Build liast of (be City Sometime Ago. Just the very beginning of tho construction of tho proposed new Santa Fo switch-yards is now under way •when the tracks at the Main street crossing are being put in shape for double track service. In a short time all trains oastbound will be on track No. 1 and westbound trains oh track No. 2. Thla double track system will extend from the Missouri Pacific Junction west of tho city to the itoclc Island crest 1 UK east of town, A mjw brick platform will lie built at I he passenger station between tracks 1 anil 2 lo accowmodalo passenger traffic. In order to do IhlH It wuu necessary to movi) all of the tracks uorlli of No. i, two feet. 1'er- mlssion was granted by the city commission and also by the Rock Mill mill Klevutor Company to do this and this work Is now under way. The track that has heretofore been used as a passing track will now be the main line truck, Only Small Part, Work on these tracks hits been under way practically all summer west of the city. It Is only a small part of the proposed new system which the railroad c.mupany bud planned to install before the government took charge of everything. The now yards can not be completed until tuu government gives permission to do so and just at present this Is rather an uncur tain quantity. "The plana as they have been made would mean an exveudliuro of over a million dollars in tbes» new yards," 41. 13. Way, agent for the Santa Fo said yesterday, "and of course only a small part of thla has been spent in arranging the double) track system. Of course It'* generally derstood that while the railroads are under control of the government, we can't make any further improvements without the official approval.
