Dr. Downos Regrets Buildings
Were Not Designated
"New High School construction,
opening of a new open-air school,
t professional Improvement of teach
ers, Increused salaries, Improved su
pervision and greater business effici
ency are surely evidences of a grati
fying forward movement," Dr. V. K.
Downes, city school superintendent
said In concluding part of his an
nual report submitted to the city
School Board to-day.
The report Is devoted to a review
of the year's work In the city dis
trict and summarizes completely the
new activities, changes In adminis
trative methods and plans for the
reorganization work which Is being
arranged for now and will be car
ried out In September when the
schools reopen.
Speaking of the construction of
the two new schools—the Camp Cur
tln and Edison buildings—Dr. Downes
expresses regret that they are not
given the same name, either "Junior
high school" or "Intermediate school."
The Kdlson building Is given the lat
ter name and the Camp Curtln th
Teachers Are Busy
That the past school year was an
unusually trying one for the teach
ers is another assertion made by the
Superintendent. He pointed to the
necessity for Intensified work after
the influenza epidemic was over, and
to the continued irregular attendance
after the schools reopened, and dur
ing the spring when a measles epi
demic kept more than a thousand
children out of school at various
About 170 teachers took the winter
course of instruction under the direc
tion of Professor John 1* Stewart, of
Lehigh University, and 60 took the
final examinations and will receive,
credits for their work.
When the Woodruff salary bill Is
upprpved further revision of the rules
of the Board will he necessury to
meet the salary Increases for teach
ers, Dr. Downes stating that this will
affect largely the city district mini
mum salaries, because they are ex
ceptionally low.
Under the reorganization plans a
supervisor of munual training, su
pervisor of special activities, super
visor of advanced grades, supervisor
of primary grades and ten elementary
supervisory principals were appoint
ed. The duties of the supervisors
of music and drawing ulso were
changed somewhat. The only other
appointment to be mude to carry out
this program Is thut of a supervisor
of physical education.
Continuing his review Dr. Downes
New Business Methods
"Much time during the year has
been devoted to preparations for
opening the new Intermediate schools
In the fall. The principals on March
lirst were relieved of all other duties
in order to devote their full time to
aiding in the work. The preparation
of announcements, classification of
pupils, appointment of teachers, se
lection of textbooks, equipment and
supplies, attention to programs and
courses cf study, to say nothing of
the working out of the budget for
those schools have demanded the
most careful consideration. The con
templated opening of two schools
at one time has. of course, increased
the complexity of the general prob
"A review of the year would not
be complete without special refer
ence to the Inauguration of new and
Improved methods of conducting the
i business affairs of the district. Tho
differentiation of duties, the fixing
of responsibility, the Improvement of
business forms and the Itemlxatlon of
budget, are particularly worthy of
mention. The determination of the
Board to conduct business strictly on
the budget basis will, without doubt,
meet with general public approval.
Continual Inn School
"Since Its organization, our con
tinuation school, for lack of accom
modations elsewhere, has been con
ducted at 124 Forster street. In an
old dwellinghouse remodeled for
school purposes. This arrangement
has never been satisfactory In any
respect. The school has been cramp
ed. unsanitary, and without adequate
facilities for the purposes Intended.
The work of the year has been all
that could be expected under the cir
cumstances. but we shall never bo
able to make much progress In the
school until conditions are greatly
"In u report during the year I
called attention to the gradual re
duction In enrollment In the Teach
ers' Training School and recommend
ed the abandonment of tho school.
Tho limited number of applications
for admission to the new class in
September has only served to streng
then my conviction that this course
Is the only logical course to pursue.
Should tho demand for local teacher
training In the futuro Justify the
maintenance of such a school, It
could be reorganized as formerly. At
present there certainly Is no warrant
ed demand for Its continuance under
former conditions."
