whs such an aggressive policy pursued
leading to tlir enforcement of the com
pulsory t'ditoatloii act. The fact that at
the beginning of tliu lust term there
was an increase of only twenty-seven
'over the coriesponillng month of the
prec'edlng' term, while at the close of
the previous term there wax an Increase
of 1!W over the number at the close of
the previous term, should be at least
some evidence of what was ticcom;

some encouragement of what can be
accomplished If the proper methods are

keep In his employ children below the
uge of li! years, who are not able to
read and write the Kngllsh language
Intelligently us the law reiiulres. Eni
ployprs and parents should be more
considerate for the future welfare of
the children. Children should be kept
In school until they have at least a fair
understanding of the Kngllsh branches;
in fact, their1 are very few cases where
children should be allowed to discon
tinue at school before having completed
the grammar grade work. 1 earnestly
time the strict enforcement of the law
in Its entirety the ensuing school term."
Superintendent (larr Is now carrying
out the threat or promise Implied In
this portion of his report. Xotwlth
tandlng the numerous notltieatlons to
parents and the arrests made during
this term, there Is a noticeable disposi
tion among certain parents to disre
gard the law ;md the friendly winn

tendency has grown so of late that
patience has ceased to be 11 virtue with
Sir. fSarr, and he has inaugurated n
movement against tmrents that he
firmly proposes to carry on with vigor
and perseverance until this lax spirit
The first step in this awakened move

Santanna and John Harris, of the Bel

Alderman linker, of the First ward, on
charges of truancy.
As indicated, there are a number of
parents who persist In Ignoring the law,

school. It the steps that have been
taken fall to bring an Immediate re

will be carried on unrelentingly and

established that there Is either woeful
