2—That the said farm or tract of
land is subject to the claims which
certain of the heirs of John Stivich

ceased. upon the death of the said
Nancy Stivich, and which charge as
shown by deed from David Brand, et
u.\„ dated January 12, 1850, to John

Ignorance Leads to Error
West C'lirnler, Pa., May 5.—A seri
ous error in listing cases for trial in
Criminal Court caused Henry Cooper,
a C'oatesville negro, much tribulation
Saturday when he was placed on trial
for a crime he did not commit for the
real culprit.
A charge of asault and battery had
been I.rough! against a negro by Jose
Campos, a young Mexican, but in er

Cooper was not the man accused and
he was sent home, a verdict of not
guilty being directed by the Court.

that the Allies are to relinquish the

, The New Junior High Schools
WITH tlie opening of schools ]
in September next, Harris-1
burg will occupy for the lirst 1
I lime two of the three intermediate
| or junior high schools, which were
! projected us the result of the Van 1
'Sickle survey of 1916. Ultimately a
j third such school is expected to bo
j provided in the central section of
! the city.
I The many questions that are con
l tinuully being asked relative to these
I schools would seem to indicate that
[the public generally is not well in
formed concerning them, either as
Ito the magnitude of the project it-
I nelf, or as to the vital and far reach
ling importance of the schools to the
educational interests of the commun
ity. For this reason it seems proper
jto answer through the public press
some of the questions that arise
] most frequently. Probably the most
.important of these are the following:
j . Why was it necessary to provide
{additional facilities at this time?
For mkny years the Central High
| School has been over-ctowded. At
| present, and for several years past,
.double sessions have been necessary.
I This school, now accommodating at
{times during the year about 1,050
I students, was constructed to accom
modate only 500 to 550 students.
For the past two years it has been
necessary to send all grammar
school graduates to tho Technical
High School. This has resulted in
the crowding of that school also to
at least fifty per cent above its'
normal capacity.
What arc intermediate or junior
high schools? They are schools in
tended to house and educate pupils
of the seventh, eight and ninth
grades. These grades include the j
last two years of the present eight
grade elementary system and the
first grade or year of tho present
four-year high school system. The
new system is known throughout
the country as the 6-3-3 plan of
school organization, as distinguished
from the former 8-4 plan. The first
six grades by the new plan will be
known as the elementary grades and
the last six as the high school grades,
tho latter being divided into three
years in the intermediate or junior
high school and three years in the
senior high school.
What arc tlic advantages of this
classification? There are many ad
vantages, some of which are discuss
ed below. Pupils in such schools
have the advantages that come from
departmental instruction, early dif
ferentiation of courses of study, in
creased variety of opportunity as to
subjects taught, and the stimulus
and inspiration that conic through
association with many teachers and
pupils of one's own age.
What ig meant by departmental
instruction and what arc its advan
tages? Departmental instruction
means teaching in some definite de
partment of work, such as the de
partment of history, the clcpartment
of Knglish, etc. Fly this plan the
teacher, instead of teaching many
subjects, confines herself to her spec
ialty. Departmental teaching means
better teaching, because the teacher
can become an expert in teaching
of one subject, whereas in the teach
ing of many subjects she is apt to
be a real expert in none. It means
better equipment, for the reason that
the few rooms in which any subject
is taught can be fully equipped at
less money than it now takes to
equip many rooms inadcqualcl.v. It
means improved physical conditions
through opportunities afforded for
physical education. It means in the
junior school, a gradual transition
from elementary to high school I
Ulicrc arc our new junior high
schools located? One—the Camp:
Curtin school—is located in the up
per end of the city, at the corner of
Hixth and AVoodbine. streets. The j
other—the Edison school- is located!
at the corner of Nineteenth and :
Chestnut streets.
Will all pupils of' the seventh,!
righlli ami ninth grades be enrolled
] in the junior high schools next year? ;
No. As already indicated, a third!
school is contemplated for the con-1
tral part of tho city. Until this is
completed, some pupils of the grades'
mentioned cannot be accommodated, i
Next year it is planned to accommo-1
date in these schools all ninth grade j
! pupils, but the seventh and eighth j
grade pupils in the central section of,
the city will continue as at present.!
W hat will these schools have cost
when completed? The Camp Curtin
school is not entirely new. The old i
part was erected in 1904 at a cost of!
about SIIO,OOO. This is bciijg re
modelled and an addition egected at I
a cost, including equipment, approxi- !
mating $250,000, making a total cost j
of about $360,000. The Edison school!
when finished will have cost, includ
ing equipment, about $450,000. There I
is therefore a building outlay in the {
schools of more than SBOO,OOO.
Hoy large arc tlic schools? Per- I
haps this question will be more'ef
fectively answered by saying that
each school occupies about one-half|
of the ordinary city block. Each
building has a large auditorium, two
gymnasiums, dressing rooms, shops,
lunch rooms, domestic science suites,
| sewing rooms, commercial rooms,
| drawing rooms, study hall 1 facilities
j—in fact all special accommodations
and facilities required by the most
advanced educational procedure.
Aside from this, each school con
tains twenty or more regular aca
demic classrooms. The Camp Cur
tin school contains a total of 76
rooms, large and small: the Edison,
82 rooms.
What academic subjects will he I
taught? English (including gram
mar. composition, literature and
spelling), arithmetic, algebra, Amet
ican history, civics, ancient history,
geography, hygiene, general science,
Latin and French.
What manual activities will he
conducted? Work in mechanical
drawing, freehand drawing and in
dustrial arts, woodworking, metal
work, electric work, printing, sewing
and cooking.
What special work, not Included
in the above will l>c given? Com
mercial work (including bookkeep

ing and service for you.

ing, typewriting, spelling and possi
bly stenography), music, public
speaking, auditorium activities and
physical training.
How many teachers will be requir
ed to supply tho needs of the intor
mcdiatc or junior high schools? The
Camp Curtin school will require 36
teachers and the Edison 44—a total
of 80. Thirty-seven of these teach
ers will be required in the special
subjects alone.
What will lie the length of the
school day? About six hours, not
including a lunch period at noon of
about forty-five minutes. Most pu
pils will be obliged either to bring
their lunches or purchase them
in the lunch room of the school.
Will not tlic construction anil op
i cralion of these schools increase the
lotal expense of the school district" 1
Yes, considerably. The interest on
the bonds, the additions to the sink
ing funds, the cost of operating tho
plants, the employment of many ad
ditional teachers in newly created
departments of work—all Ihis will
make added costs necessary.
How will the schools compare,
when completed, with other similar
seliools throughout tlic country ?
These schools and the facilities pro
vided through them will be unsur
passed. They mean that Harrisburg
has taken a national stride educa
lionally. They will afford opportun
ities for the development of the boys
and girls of Harrisburg equal to
those afforded in any city. And. af
ter all. it is not so much the ques
tion of how much is spent, on edu
cation, but what returns are derived
for moneys expended that arc of
most important concern. Our new
schools will bring returns.
