SMALL TRACT PURCHASE
DEFEATED IX THE HOUSE

Mr. Nisslev, of Dauphin county,
bore the brunt of the debate for the;
bill which was very spirited. The bill
was called up from postponed calen- j
, dar by Mr. Geiser. of Northampton,
i and it was immediately attacked by
. Mr. Wilson, of Philadelphia, who char
acterized it as a vicious one in so j
much as it required the commission, j
priposei by bill, to purchase a certain j
plot of ground.
The bill, he said, provided that the |
j plot be purchased if an agreement can 1
be reached whereby the purchase price
lis not more than $75,000 and that the i
around be taken by eminent domain if
: it cannot be acquired at that price.
Mr. Nisslev sav 1 it was a good bill,
the only argument against it being that
it might open the way for the commis
sion to be unfair. This was taken up
by Mr. Wilson, of Philadelphia, as be
ing an argument against the bill. There
was some discussion as to the need for

HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 19, 1915.
ROTARY CLUB IS- TOLD OF
PLAN FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS
Professor Koch, of Department of Pub
lic Instruction of Pennsylvania, Lec
tures on Advantages of Six-Year
High School Arrangement
In an' address at a dinner held last
night by the Harrisburg Rotary Club,
Professor Charles D. Koch, of the State
Department of Public Instruction, told
of the advantages of the plan now in
operation in many cities of dividing
public school training into six years of
elementary and six years ot high school
work, the latter divided into Junior
High school and Senior High school.
He expressed the opinion that in this
city three buildings would' be needed
to accommodate the students of a Ju
nior High school, and pointed out that
those would have to be suitably
equipped with laboratories for first in
structions in elementary sciences. He
estimated that there would be 1.550
boys and girls in the Junior High
school and 840 in the Senior.
Professor Koch is consi .ered one of
the best authorities on the six-year
plan. He was selected to lecture on it
at Schoolmen's week at the University
of Pennsylvania recently. In intro
ducing him, Dr. Samuel /.. Shope, chair
man of the Educational Committee,
made a plea to the members of the club
to be more concerned about the edu
cational interests of the city:
"For some years you have been |
paying taxes to be spent on educational j
work, but I venture to wager that less j
than ten per cent, of jou have beenj
inside of a school room since the teach-1
ers and School Board graduatei you I
just to get rid of you; or since you
were permanently fired from school for
insubordination, or clandestine love
making or some other fiendish depreda-1
"You ought to get around to the
school at least two or three times a
year to encourage the teacher, the
"school authorities anvi the pupil by j
showing that you are interested in see-;
ing what you get out of those taxes.
You would go fast enough if the school
house was your factory, orchard, vine
yard, cornfield, hennery, or pig sty.
"Your actions seem to prove that
you do not realize that children con
stitute the one really important crop
this countiv raises.
'' All are uo doubt aware in some ■
vague way at least, of the fact that
our school authorities are considerably !
hampered in our Central High school.
At the meeting of this club two months;
ago. it was admitted, by those in a po
sition to know, that there is no pros- |
pect of removing within the next ten I
years this handicap to our boys and '
girls—this impediment to the advance- >
ment of educational interests in this,
"With these unwelcome tidings'
i ringiug in our ears, your educational j
committee went to work to find a solu- 1
j tion to the problem now and believing)
we h»ve foun'.i it we reported at the
last meeting. Receiving the unanimous!

GERMANY'S REPLY TO U.S.
NOTEWILL PROBABLY REACH
WASHINGTON IN 10 DAYS
Washington, May 19.—Official in
formation was received here to-day of
Germany's reply to the American note
will not be completed for at least a
week and probably not reach Wash
ington for at least ten days.
It is now known with some definite- !
ness that Germany will indicate her |
willingness to have her submarines act j
toward all merchantmen just as de
stroyers Or cruisers ami give ample
time for passengers and crew to leave,
provided merchantmen are unarmed or
if passengers and contraband traffic
are separated. That position is looked
upon with some favor here, provided 't
is suggested as a modus vivendi or
temporary arrangement and does not |
involve the relinquishment by the j
United States of the tights of its citi- j
zens to travel anywhere on the high j
seas on enemy or belligerent unarmed
U. S. Will Insist on Demands
There is an insistence ou the purt of
the United States, however, that the
principles of law and humanity ex
pressed in its note must be recognized '
and admitted by Germany and that any
intention to destroy American lives on
the Lusitania must be disavowed. This
the United States will stand firmly on
the principles set forth in its note has
been conveyed indirectly and inform
ally to Germany since the communica
tion itself left here. •
Another factor in the situation j
which is expected to be clarified in a
day or two is that with respect to
Great Britain over the embargoes pro
claimed Toy the allies.
Proposed Note for Britain.
That a note has been in preparation
on the subject and is practically com
pleted is not known, but it is learned
to-day that President Wilson probably
will not make any move in that direc
tion until Germany's reply is received.
He is said to be unwilling to com
j plicate the problem by new represen
i tations aud is understood to believe
that the issue between the United
States anil Germany must be settled
clearly on the questions presented in
the note and that the United States
should act without obligation and in
its own way in the correspondence with
Great Britain or other belligerents.
ISAYS LUSITANIA'S VICTIMS .

Amsterdam, Via London, May 19.
Captain Persias, writing in the Berlin
"Tageblatt" regarding the United
States and Germany, says:
"If, in spite of the German Ad
miralty's warning against entering the
war zone, American citizens entrusted
themselves to the Lusitania, the blame
falls upon themselves and their govern
ment. Can America guarantee that
i neither guns nor ammunition were on
board and, further, that a submarine,
when emerging, was not exposed to be
ing rammed by the Lusitania! If the
answer is in the negative, as undoubt
edly it must be, the American govern-
ment. after calm deliberation, will un
derstand it lias uo right to raise a pro
test against the torpedoing of the Lusi
"The German government, we ex
pect, will have the firmness ta retract
no step and should in this case be cer

to British ships or give them goods for
TO ADJUST MNGOFFRYE
IN A GERMAN PRIZE COURT
Washington, 'May 19. —Germany has
sent to a prize court the case of the
American sailing, ship, William I*.
Frye, sunk in the "South Atlantic last
January by the German auxiliary
cruiser Priuz Eitel Friedrich, but it is
understood that the German Admiralty
took that action before it had received
the American note insisting that the
damages be adjusted directly through
diplomatic negotiations in Washington.
It is said by officials here that the
reference of the case to a prize court
will not necessarily prevent diplomatic •
adjustment. The German government, ]
it is said, probably finds it necessary, i
under its legal methods, to develop cer- .
tain facts through a prize court even j
while negotiations may be in progress.
As Germany has admitted in principle
liability for the sinking of the Frye,;
the State Department here
will not feel concerned at this latest de- j
