School Authorities Get Letter*
From Prominent Men I
Over United States
Lack of Attention on Part of
Mothers Is Cause For
This, They Say
Nearly a hundred letters have been
received by D. D. H&mmelbaugh, sec
retary of the school board, from
school board presidents, secretaries,
superintendents and other public edu
cators throughout tho country, in
which co-education in the high
schools is not only approved of but
enthusiastically commended.
The data Is now being compiled by
Secretary Hammelbaugh in connection
with a similar report being made up
by School Superintendent Downes for
presentation to the school board when
the separation of the rexes is dis
Whether or not the problem after
all will be threshed out at to-morrow
afternoon's board meeting is a ques
tion; the letters have all been filed,
however, should the question be
brought up.
To date eighty-nine replies have
been received in answer to the hun
dred letters sent out by Secretary
Hammelbaugh to school heads and
educators in various cities of the
country from Maine to California and
'from the Great Lakes to the Gulf.
Unreserves! Approval
Of the eighty-nine replies, eighty
one approve unreservedly of the co
educational idea; among "the heartiest
advocates are several women school
superintendents. The remainder do
not actually declare against the plan
but raise the question as to the possi
bilities. They, as a rule qualify their
statements, with the explanation that
their knowledge is limited to schools
in which the sexes are kept separate.
Three questions were asked by Mr.
Hammelbaugh In his letter: Whether
co-education was being followed in
the town of the recipient; whether co
education lead to immorality among
the members; and whether, should or
ganization of the high school be un
der consideration, would the recipient
advise the adoption of the co-educa
tional idea.
And here are some of tlio replies;
Helen B. Jones, president school
board, Denver—ln my opinion co-ed
ueation does not lead to immorality,
and if we were to organize our high
school anew I should vote for co- ed

,1. Grier Long, superintendent, Spo

girl will always lie a factor requiring
"ireful supervision in schools and out.
Charles E. Gorton, superintendent,
Tonkers, N. Y.—l believe the nearer
■ve can preserve "the family relations in
he schools —the better.
G. V. Brickliaver, superintendent,
iklahoma City—ln my judgment co
education stimulates a regard for
moral conduct and gives to the chil
lren a. fuller knowledge of the oppo
site sex.
Luther B. Evans, secretary and su
perintendent, Augusta, Ga.—We now
■lave separate high schools for boys
uid girls. I am in favor of co-educa
ion and see no reason to cease from

! would have but one high school —for
oth sexes.
A. E. Eames, commissioner of edu
ation, Chattanooga—Does co-educa
lion tend to immorality? No, but lack
if attention by mothers and lack of
healthy surroundings at home—does.

and the linal job was completed De

In all that time, according to the
official reports, just 2,782 square yards
of top, or surfacing, and 2,375 square
yards of "skin patching" was done for
the city; the private repair work to
te led B,2GG yards .
The private repair work included
such section as had been torn up for
laying pipes, making connections by
plumbers, etc., for the various public
utilities, firms and individuals.
For putting down the concrete and
the surfacing ?2 per yard was allowed,
while $1.25 was the charge for "cuts,"
;or places where the concreting had
been done at the owner's expense and
only the surfacing, or "top," was nec
essary by the contractor.
"Skin patching," of which 2,375
yards was done for the city, is the
process of cutting down into asphalt
to half its depth, oiling the sides and
floor of the cut and then filling in the
depression with new asphaltum.

other year and it is doubtful if any
thing definite in the way of providing
for the repair plant will be taken up
until the expiration of this contract.
Norfolk's Plant
All over the country the problem of
erecting municipal repair plnnts is
being discussed. In a recent issue of
| the Municipal Journal is a description
of a plant in Norfolk, Va., that was
erected at a cost of $250 with a daily
capacity of from 100 to 150 square
Part of an old smokestack was
made use of for a drum. A shaft
with blades attached was placed
through the center of the section of
stack. This drum is supported upon a
brick foundation and is made to re
volve by means of gearing driven by a
flve-horsepower electric motor.
Old asphalt pavement, chopped up
and enriched with about 2 per cent,
of asphalt cement, is fed into the
drum at one end. and as the drum re
vohes the mixture is tossed about and
worked backward and forward by the
blades attached to the shaft. At the
end of ten minutes the mixture, com
prising a charge of about 1,000 pounds,
is discharged from the revolving drum
by means of a door operated by the
foreman. It is then shoveled into carts
and is ready for the street.
The cost of the repair work has
varied from 30 to 80 cents a square
yard. This includes removal of the
patches that were worn out, down to
the concrete, and replacing with new
material. Length of haul and differ
ent working conditions are the causes
of this variation in costs.
During the months of June and
July, 1913, 2,000 yards of sheet as
phalt repair work was done at an
average cost, including all labor and
cart hire, of 45 cents per square yard.
New asphaltlc cement added 5 cents
per yard, making the total cost of re
pair work 50 cents per square yard.

Too Much Excitement at Night
Occupies the Attention of
the Modern Child
Loss of sleep among school children
was blamed for much of the inat
tention and poor work by Miss Nora
Skane, one of the teachers at the
.lieily street building in a paper read
before the Parent-Teachers' Associa
tion of the building.
Miss Skane was ono of a number
who read papers or diacussed parts
■of the evening's subject of "The
Health of the Growing Child." Others
who talked were Dr. C. C. Cocklln,
who discussed the care of the eyes;
Dr. C. A. Sheely. who told of mouth
hygiene; Dr. Thomas 8. Blair, who
spoke of the digestive organs. These
talks were followed by a conference
on the subject in which the teachers
and parents took part.
Miss Skane pointed out that the
"beauty" sleep and the health sleep
must be obtained before midnight.
She remarked that many children are
not getting this qleep between the
hours of 9 and 12 when they should,
and their lack of concentration in
school the next morning Is the result
>f this loss. She said the excitement
I jf going to picture shows, parties and
hings of that sort in addition to de
priving the child of the best sleep adds
poison to the mind already weakened
by loss of sleep, so that effective work
is almost Impossible.
The other speakers gave advice on
the care of eyes, teeth and the gen-'
eral bodily welfare of the children.
The mothers were given the viewpoint
of the physicians who talked. Alter
the open discussion the social commit-
refreshments. It was the
annual social meeting of the associa
tion. More than seventy members at

Weak From Loss of

Weakened by the lack of food, Rich
