At tomorrow night's meeting which

Representative Geerge t Dnrrew and
Franklin Spencer Edmonds, of the
titate Assembly, arc expected te speak.
Complaints In regard te the present
school building are numsreus. There
ir 583 pupils en the rolls of the Mount
Airy Scheel, and 102 of that number
sre en part time. Several large build
ing operations are being planned for the
district and the immediate future gives
premise of a large increase In the popu
lation. This gives the residents deep
concern for the future schooling of their
children unless prompt action Is taken
by the school beard.
"The Mount Airy school building has
Steed with no substantial Improvements
lince the date or Its erection in isti,"
the committee reports.
Must Wade Through Puddles
"In order te enter the school build
ing It Is necessary for the pupils V
wade through puddles of water en
rainy days. Se corridors arc provided
and the passing of pupils and ethers
through the classrooms In going about
the building results In the diverting
of the attention of the pupils. The
stairs tre of weed and only a slight
fire would be necessary te render them
useless in emptying the building of
Its precious contents. Tlie building is
overcrowded, there being mere tlmn
forty pupils te the room nnd the di
mensions of the rooms nre such that thn
Health Department gives the general
grade of 'bad.'
"An outside tire escape Is provided,
but It is uncovered and when covered
with snow nnd ice in winter weathtr
would be perilous for children te de
scend. "Ne cloakrooms are provided, the
rooms having a closet 8 feet by in
Inches into which the wraps lire piled
one en top of the ether se that net
only Is disease spread nnd the wrap.
Injured, but it Is Impossible for the
children te obtain their wraps before
the dismissal of the entire class.
"The only means of ventilntlen Is
the opening of the windows with the
consequent draughts nnd colds. The
neat or ine mumtng is provided bv
four het-nlr heaters. The only light-
ing facilities arc furnished by old-
lauiiened gas jets, and te eliminate the
danjer of the chandeliers falling upon
we cniiiiren's heads many of these
mt been removed te the cellar. On
dark dnjs, therefore, It is impossible
tp provide proper artificial illumina

that she has eeen In America, this is
her opinion of our. humor i as opposed
te that of England :
"We in England arc net serious
enough. We rag everything. Take
Dickens he shows the true,. deep Eng

troubles with laughter, that can smile
nt tragedy and pain. It Is irenic, but
it Is humor. New In America there is
a tragic Intensity about everything
everybody takes life seriously. One
will meet n bobbed-haired birl. very
young-looking, and learn she Is a play
wrlght or an authoress of note. All
are frightfully serious and very mum
interested' in se many things. The
humor .is mere flippant nnd light, but
It Is net Irenic or cynical."
While in New Yerk, Miss Bellec met
a number of Itndcllffe College girls and

girls are frightfully educated, but very
Leves te Travel Alene
Miss Bellec Is "twenty-one, going en
twenty-two," rather small, with short
black bobbed hair and eyes which sbc
insists arc the color of "mud." Most
people would consider them blue.
"I am traveling quite alone," said
Miss Bellec. "and 1 lave It. it was
difficult, rather, te persuade father te
let me come te America alone, but
since I am twenty-one he gave his
consent. Fer JenrH I have been travel

attitude if one gees along knowing
what one is about, nobody will bother
or Interfcre nt all."
With a merry laugh Miss Bellec dls-
fiesed of rumors that she Intended te
ecturc or collect material for a book.
"It would be a great impertinence, my
lecturing, would It net? Ah for the
books young peeple write, they are
generally nothing but fatuous rubbish
they should wait until years and ex
perience slve some value te their work.
I love te write, nnd would enjoy helne

enough for a newspaper. I wrote for

only se much hash and was net accept

Miss Bellec weighs her werts care
fully and speaks as though every

One Intimate touch of the home life

by Miss Bellec. "When we were little
we never broke rules, because there were
none te break. We lived In a place
In Sussex, 105 aercs, and tramped all

write The Four Men' nnd their Jaunt
