How- to accommodate them all Is a
question now petplexlng the biiHtd.
Borne think that by transferring the
training school to other quartern and
using these looms for class-t corns for
High school pupils, the question xIII
be solxed. It Is genet ally admitted on
tho boaid that thlr, will solve the ques

ntembeis ate not content with any
tempotary expedients and ate favor

school, xv bete pupils from the gram
mar school can take one or two years
ot tho High school courses.
None of the larger cities, It Is con
tended, confine themsplvr to a single
High school. Tho cential High school,
with Junior or sub-dlstt let High schools,
prevail In every city of any size.
Eventually, this must come in Sctan

the matter with 11 Ttlbttnc repot tor, ellel
not commit himself to any pattlctilar
solution of the pending problem. Tho
most economical xxay, he sa.d, would
be to talse tho grade of the Rinmmnr
schools, but this, he felt, xvould do an
Injury to cdticntion, ns It wottlel have a
tendency to ellseouiago pupils fiom
completing tho coutse.
II lb the ambition ot evety student to
reach the High school, and this am
bition Is an ever-piesent Incentive to

the High school, he or she can be safely
counted upon to stay there till gradu

classes of the giammar schools. Tho.
longer a pupil Is Kept In the grammar
school the gi eater will be the pet cent

Gibbons said, that the pupils xxould
come to logatd the High school couises
in tho giammar school as being tho
equivalent of the same couises ns
taught in the High school building by
11 specially f-elected faculty, but the
chances aie they xvon't.

Lieutenant Morrison M. Keck, of 1010
Pine street, is back In this city nftcr
almost two years of active service In
the Philippine islands with the Forty
second Infantry, He xvas mustered out
at the Ptesldlo recently, at tho same
time ns Lieutenant Thomas Muiphy, of
thl city, who was with the Forty-seventh
Lieutenant Keck saw haul seivlco
anil plenty of it, but the rough cam
paigning, toiiid heal and rigoioua llfo
luive left nn traces on his strong
physique, and he looks heat tier and
healthier than ever, rejoicing, more
over, In .1 tanned color which shows
tho effects of the blazing sun to xxhlch
ho was daily subjected.
With soldier's modesty, Lieutenant
Keck is icltictant about dwelling at any
length on his own achievements In the
East, but ho Is, nevertheless, known to
have been one of the best ofllcers In
tho regiment. On tho xxay home nnd

pany, In the absonie of tho captain,
xvho-iemalned In tho Philippines to ac
cept n government position.
Lieutenant Keck received his com
mission August 30, 1899, and xxas as
signed to Company M. Forty-second ln-
fantiy, destined for the Philippines. He
xvao theie practically ever since, and If
all his ndxentuies could be set forth
nt length there xxould be good lending
His leglment xxas stationed In North
ern Luzon, and xxhllo It took part In no

dusky enemy, the amiable riliplno
made his ptosencc known on many nn
occasion, and frequent xxete the lively
bitishes and fierce skitmlshes with tho
follow eis of tho only and inimitable
Agulnaldo. "It xxas a continual round
of excitement," said Lieutenant Keck
briefly last night, but tho modest
young ofllcer xvas unwilling to specify
any of the exciting details.

Ised some doings of a lively natute,

tho little vessel, xvhlle tho lieutenant
x niched hl precious charge xvith one
eye and his sallow -looking companions
with the other. Tho trip passed xvith
tuit adventure, however. Tho lieuten
ant hasn't the highest opinion In the
xv 01 Id of the Filipino as an open Held
fighter, and claims that his sttong point
at the xvartlor's game Is In potting a

I'aptaln Lomax xxas in chat go of the
company, nnd has now accepted a posi

pleasantly, and disbanded June ".'.
There was one other Scranton man in
the teglment, and bo xxas Robert Vail,
quat terniaster sergeant of Company D.
He xvas formerly a local optician, con
nected with Oscar Hejer, of Spiuco
stieet, and Lieutenant Muiphy declares
that he made one of tho llnest set

"While In the Philippines, Lieutenant
Keck xxas more foitunate than many
of the ofllcers and men, and, leadlly ac
climating hlmtelf to the conditions, ex
peilenccd not one day of Illness. He
brings home xvith him many quaint
trophies of the new possessions. Among
these Is a quaint statuette caivetl out

curiosity Is a Filipino hat. It Ih Just
