The speakers were Dr. fi. C. -Moore of Yale' uniyersity, New Ha- $&0>- ven,. and Howell Cheney of the state hoard of education. The general ~ subject 'was the "Educational Needs %'- 5, - of an Industrial Community." Attorney William H. Leete pre- -J; jO. sided, and introduced the speakers, , both of whom... in their addresses strongly favored the claims of the elementary schools and the advisability of making them vocational as far as possible. Dr. Moore, who was recently called to Yale from his educational activi- - -I ties in the far west, was the first ; speaker He disclaimed any knowl- " , edge of the local school situation and £.y • spoke of what in his opinion the ^i;YY'! model school should be. A large percentage of the popula-tion of California, said Dr. Moore, S^YY are from the eastevn states. The old saying that when a boy became able f 3 • to walk he walked out of the. state |||Y;;| of Maine, was partially true and Y- ' equally applicable to all the New Y,YY England states. The young men of V-rY' v the east have been walking west- : 1 ward for many years, until there are f < more New Snglanders in California IV than in New England; and for every ~<L ",',t one that walked out there were two «r more^ho wfelked in, and these Yr ;. -" were from the Old World peoples * • across the sea. The west is no longer the frontier; New1 England is the frontier, where Americans must meet ^ • the problem of absorbing the multi- YYY: tudes who come to our shores, but who are ignorant of our customs and our traditions, and making good ; ' American citizens of them, receiving them as element of strength to our body politic when they shall have become imbued with and catch the ;sjepirit of our national thought and , aspirations. . - From a recent report of the New ; York state commissioners of educa- " tion we learn that but 3 5 per cent, (fe of the population is pative born and but 29 per cent, native born and of native born parents, while 65 per . cent, is foreign born or of foreign i born parents. In Massachusetts and Connecticut the latter percentage'is 70. Out of Xevv Haven's population of 116,000. 5t>,000 are Italians and 18,000 Polish and Jews, leaving but . a small percentage of Americans, ft ; ; To make good American citizens of these newcomers, who have as * " 7 much right to come as had our forefathers, we must educate them. Our - schools are the most important factor . r •- in solving the problem. * ' Dr. Moore then considered the ^ • schools under their two natural divi- * sions, the elementary schools and the high schools. The elementary school is the most important, said he, in that'it reaches the greater number. He then discussed the essential courses of study in the elementary schools. We must teach them first the English language, for that is the language the business of the country is transacted in: it is the language of cur state, and national government, of our factories and of our farms. In ©ur. schools we must teach talking English as well as reading it. Dr. Moore then told from his own experience as a boy when first at* tending school, during a stormy day lie spoke right out in school saying, "'It's snowing out doors." "Yes," • admonished the teacher, "but we don't come to school to talk." "I •; have been fighting that idea ever iY'% , since," said the doctor, "for I believe f'v' • that a school should be the place "where we learn to talk. Some of my present pupils in the university are •shining examples of such pchool l^feY training; they evidently never learned *to talk' in school and it is almost impossible to get them to talk now." He thea related the story of the 'i/YV "Building of'the tower of Babel, after the Deluge,) when men determined i||jP|y that they would construct a tower that should reach to Heaven and Piftif "whieh could never be submerged, llteii! frustrated their plans by giving ffifpig them each a different language. Then, tflplli the record states, "work on the city MP -ceased." Work on any city ceases, said the speaker, when the citizens •no longer speak the same1 language. We can do no large work together i ^ .1 - • e have llfei for the common good wht not a common 'language.® In many-.schools -we are ^'taught how to read, but riot taught to read. He had known instances of pupils who after leaving school forgot how to read. They are not educated unless they ire taught to go on and educate themselves * after leaving school. We should teach writing in the elementary schools, as the state defines ' a literate person as one who can read and write. We must teach arithmetic in the elementary schools; for they should be taught how to count their money and compute prices, that none should take advantage of them. It was Dr. James, said the speaker, who said, "He who works for a family does a greater work than he who works for himself alone; he who works for a community does a still greater work; he who works for bis state or nation is performing a vastly greater work; but he is the greatest of all who works at all times and in all places for the good of the race." Geography, said Dr. Moore, brings us in touch with all the world and all the peoples of the world. It also will give our brothers who have corns to us 'from across the sea a better conception of the greatness of this, the land of their adoption; we should teach them geography. I cannot conceive of a person becoming a good citizen of this country unless he knows the history of the country, the great principles for which Americans have contended since the inception of th'is republican form of government. These things should be instilled in the minds of the pupils of the elementary schools. In discussing the high school, Dr. Moore said he was heretic enough to be of the opinion that the high school should be vocational in its teaching. Only one out of ten of the high school pupils ever go to college, yet the other nine are taught the same preparatory course. In the case of the feeble-minded. child we have learned that he must be taught through his hands. A great many children and adults, both normal and. abnormal, learn best when the hand helps the mind.- Dr. Moore concluded by emphatically stating that he favored a mechanical course in our high schools, and that Mr. Cheney, the next speaker, would enter more fully into a discussion of that part of the subject.. After a pleasant word of introduction by Mr. Leete, Howell Cheney of South Manchester, a member of the state board of education, then began his address by confessing to his audience that he had made no special preparation before coming t^ speak to them, save while on the journey thither. His remarks, however, were eminently practical, having to do more with actual experiments in vocational teaching. In his introductory ^Vlr. Cheney quoted from the laws of the early Hartford colony that, every child should be given an education; and if the parents were not able to .educate the child for any of the higher callings,t he must be given some education in a practical venation such as husbandry or an industrial trade. It is too long a story to tell how we have gotten away froii this wise plan, said Mr. Cheney, but in the cycle of time we are coming back. Under the compulsory education act 'we keep the children in school until 14 years of age. But at 14, 60 per cent, leave school, having reached no higher than the fifth or sixth grades. After this the state does nothing for them, though they are not well equipped to do for themselves. Only 40 per cent, remain for high school instruction. Can nothing be done for the 60 per cent.? The state should face this problem by providing vocational schools. It would be expensive, costing perhaps $150 per year for each pupil. . Mr. Cheney took the stand that the parents should bear part of this expense and thus assist the state. Mr. Cheney said that he had no statistics as to the workers in Thomp-sonville, but that in South Manchester at least 60 per cent, employed in the factories were women. What are you doing for these girls? said the speaker. They attend school until 14 years of age and then go to work in- the factory. They do not try to learn much about their work, as they expect in a few years to marry. What.do they know about the duties of a home or of motherhood? These should ^be taiight them in the most practical way, and we have in South Manchester established what we call a workingman's home and 70 • girls have attended there during the year and have been taught how to scrub the floors, clean the toilets and sinks, care for beds and bedding, sweep, dust, wash and iron and bake. And the things they bake must be palatable; they must be eaten. And they have -learned for (Continued on Page Five.) OtMOCRATIC PRIMAHES cnv • 1 . ->r- • V: Old Timers Still Dominant in Demo- -v- r cratic Circles ^ v ^ ^ '• • J- 1 • '.'•VJ-V": . Farrell Refuses to Be Dislodged— What Gov. I Baldwin is Attempting —Majr Make it Impossible to Elect Another Democratic Governor. (Special to The Press.) Hartford, March 26th. The result of the democratic primaries and the victory of the old-line wing of .the party is only another argument in favor of organiza-. tion. There is little doubt that there is a smouldering discontent among many democrats against the highhanded manner the old-timers often employed to achieve their purpose. This discontent has been stirred into flame on various occasions and the representatives of the ancient camp were forced to fly to cover to avoid a blistering. Some way or other, however, they come back and there has never been stronger proof of their invincible-ness than their victory this week. It may be recalled that dire threats were made, when Kinsella used his influence to replace Dower on the water board, that no one connected with the Kinsella crowd could expect to be granted favor. Notoriously, Farrell has always been allied with that section of the party. Indeed some go so far as to say that the old-liners hold out as a distinctive body just to keep Farrell in office. In spite of the threats, then, and in the face of a combination that promised to be dangerous Farrell smilingly refuses to be dislodged. The old-timers are still dominant in Hartford democratic circles and it looks as if they intended so to remain. V From local conditions some of the democrats are- finding arguments to use against the chaotic shape in which-the state body finds itself. The spectacle of a democratic governor at war with his senate is something novel. It cannot be concealed that the Hartford democrats are very bitter in their denunciation of Governor Baldwin's attitude on the patronage question. They are beginning to call him in classical centers the Greek gift. He came over to the democratic camp hidden under deceptive apparel and it is now thought that lie will be instrumental in disrupting the party in this state. Whatever fine ideals Governor Baldwin may have on the necessity of efficiency they only seem to work when Yale graduates are concerned. His vigorous championing of the Corbin cause is called by some very harsh names and it would not be surprising if whatever organization there is in the state would go on record openly in condemnation of his attitude. When men become bitter they begin to grow unjust, perhaps, and so the motives they attribute to Governor Baldwin must not be accepted without question. But it is alleged that the governor has become so infatuated with the sense of his own importance that he has deluded himself into the belief that he can wreck the democratic party and even win advantage from the destruction. At his time of life, when he should be meditating on funeral thoughts, he is said to entertain the idea that he is the only democrat fitted to represent Connecticut in the United States senate. Most men would imagine that if he desired the place the* only wise way to conduct oneself would be to I build up a strong party power so that when the time came for voting a hold might be retained on the legislature. No so Simeon. Whether, he thinks -that the people will elect the next senator, or because of some miraculous intervention the next legislature will be his to bend, does not appear, but only he is able to discern how the present organization can be smashed to bits and success still be won. Others claim that the exaggerated ego, to employ a Judsonian phrase, has so taken possession of him in his senility that he wishes to prevent another democrat from being chosen governor, or if chosen that conditions will be so involved that years must intervene to straighten out matters^ and leave room for any definite accomplishments. V i . f - What Baldwin does not reckon with is the temper of the party men who have as much interest in preserving as he has in destroying the democratic organization. It is well for democracy that at this critical time the man who is at the head of the organization is so fearless a character-.as George Forster. He is neither overawed by Baldwin's reputation nor intimidated by his pedantry. The chairman of the state cen-fit U R S DA Y, MARCH 27, 1913 EDITION CONTAINS TEN PAGES VOL.

No matter how exalted, wheel and, when a fatuous delusion leads one to believe he is, the time has arrived to tell him the blunt truth. That is what. Forster has ever been ready to tell the governor. The chief executive .has not been a willing listener, but he has been compelled to listen just the same. ANNUAL,BALL WAS vem A PRONOUNCED SUCCESS Local 148 Have Reason to Be Proud of the Appreciation Shown by an Unusually Large Attendance. >The 10th annual concert and ball given by the Thompsonville local, 148, Bartenders' union, was held in Franklin hall Easter Monday night, and was a grand success. A concert program from 8 050 to 9:00 o'clock was thoroughly enjoyed by the large gathering present. V 'b~'- The ihand march started at 9:30 and was led by Floor Director and Mrs. Dan J. Quinn, followed by Assistant Floor Director Fred Fitzgerald and Mrs. Arthur Tracy, and members of the local. Over 60 couples took part. A_dance program of 20 numbers arranged by Director Cav-anaugh in his usual classy style was rendered and it was after 2 o'clock when, the last of the tired dancers wended their < way homeward. Cava-naugh's orchestra was at its best and the many encores received showed that the dancers appreciated the classical music rendered. Prof. John J. Ready was master of ceremonies and performed his duties in his usual able manner. During the evening the famous St. Mary's quartet of Hazardville, composed of Mrs. William Reynolds, Mrs, Arthur Tracy, Fred Thomes and John.Weider, rendered the beautiful selections entitled "Come Where the Lilies Bloom," for which they were heartily applauded. Fred Thomes, the well-known bass soloist of St. Mary's quartet, gang "'Thy Sentinel." Mr. Thomes is7 a soloist of great ability. Edward Finnerty of the Or-pheum was in beautiful voice and his solo, "The Sands of the Desert," showed plainly why Mr. Finnerty is such a drawing card. Prof. Adolph Stein of the Orpheum theatre appeared and his beautiful violin solo, "When You and I Were Young," was played in true professional style. As an encore Mr. Stein rendered his latest, "The Harem," with which he has scored such a tremendous hit in vaudeville. The ball committee composed of James J. Higgins, Fred Fitzgerald, T. J. Connor and D. J. Quinn, worked hard and earnestly to make the ball a success and wish to thank the public for their patronage and appreciation. Miss Elfreida Lemere, the popular pianist of the Majestic theatre, accompanied Mr. Finnerty and Prof. Stein in their selections. TOWN COURT NEWS A young boy from North Manchester, who was carelessly exhibiting a roll of more than $100 in bills, was taken into custody Tuesday by Chief of Police Callahan, who put him in the lockup and after sleeping all the afternoon woke up in better condition to look after his wealth and was allowed to make his departure. He said he was going to Ohio in search of work. Entertained Woman's Club. Miss M. Louise Morrison entertained the members of the Enfield Woman's club at her home on Prospect street yesterday afternoon. A feature was a lecture by Rev. W. J. Hale of Yale university, who has been in charge of the Yale mission in China for seven years. Rev. Mr. Hale spoke on "The Chinese Revolution and some of Its Results." Miss Ann Bassette of Enfield street sang "The Four Leaf Clover" and "Woodpecker." Mrs. Nellie K. Lewis played the piano accompaniment. Slight Fire Sunday Evening. Sunday evening about 7:30' o'clock the fire department was called out to an alarm from box 94 for a blaze in a four-tenement block ' on Tariff street, occupied by Italian families, owned by the Hartford Carpet Co. Clothes hanging on a rack in the kitchen of the down-stairs, tenement caught on fire from an over-heated stove and were blazing when noticed by a passerby. The window was smashed in order to gain entrance, as no one was at home in the tenement. The damage was slight. The woodwork about the stove was charred and the clothes ruined. The blaze was extinguished with pails of water before the firemen arrived.';• DROWNED HERSELF mmi K Mrs, Thomas Underwood Became Despondent Over Loss of Son Body Discovered Shortly After by an Employe of the Arthur R. Leete Store on Main Street. \ As William Stinson, a plumber in the employ of Arthur R. Leete, chanced to look frotn a window in the basement of the store where he was at work early Tuesday morning he was startled at seeing what appeared to be the body of a woman lying in the shallow water of Asnun-tiick brook. Investigation showed the body to 'be that of Mrs. Anna Maria Underwood, wife of Thomas Underwood, who is by occupation a carpet weaver, but who is now serving a term in the Hartford jail on the charge of drunkenness. Medical Examiner Thomas G. Alcorn on being notified, viewed the body and rendered a verdict of suicide by drowning, the position of the body and traces of footprints in the vicinity, seeming to indicate that as the cause of death. Mrs. Underwood had jumped from the wall in the rear of the Thomp-sonville Dry Goods Store. She was only partially clothed. The woman, with her fson Harry, had been living for some time past in rooms in the Noble block on Main qtreet and she had been employed as caretaker of the rooms in the building. So - far as is known the unfortunate woman was last seen about 5:00 o'clock Monday evening by one of the roomers in the same building, with whom she talked. Mrs. Underwood was about 47 years old, and was a native of England, but had lived in this village about 6 years. The funeral was held yesterday morning from the undertaking rooms of A. R. Leete, Rev. D. Russ Judd, of St. Andrew's church, officiating. Interment was in the Thompsonville cemetery. The son, Harry Underwood, aged 10 years, was on Sunday committed to the County Home at Warehouse Point. He has been irregular in attendance at school. WEDDING BELLS. Pease—French. Miss Edith M. French, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar R. French of Hazardville, and Howard Pease of Prospect street were married last Wednesday. Mrs. Pease had been keeping house for Mr. Pease since the death of his first wife. Mr. Pease is a well-known and prominent resident in this village and for many years has held a responsible position with the Phelps Publishing company of Springfield, as a circulation agent. NEWS Fill lit Senate Votes to Confirm Corbin's House Appropriates $10,000 for Relief of Ohio Sufferers. The senate at 12:00 o'clock today, by a vote ,of 18 to 14, voted to confirm the nomination of Tax Commissioner Corbin, which was sent to the senate a few days ago by Governor Baldwin. The question of whether or not Mr. Corbin would be retained in office as tax commissioner for the state of Connecticut has caused considerable discussion among the politicians throughout the state, as it was rather a peculiar coincidence to have a democratic governor nominate a republican for this office, which was originally made for political purposes. The democratic senators in caucus were almost unanimous in opposing the governor in his nomination of Mr. Corbin, as they thought there were a number of democrats throughout the state who could efficiently fill this office. Mr. Corbin is a republican and his capabilities as a tax commissioner were recognized. A bill was introduced in the house of representatives appropriating $100,000 for the relief of the sufferers in Ohio. The governor was consulted about the matter and when he expressed his disapproval of this plan an amendment was formed making the sum $10,000. The amendment was carried and it is not likely that the governor will veto the bill. Giaconia's Dancing School's Private Reception. Mr. Giaconia's Thompsonville School for Dancing met Monday evening in Casino half to enjoy a dance followed by refreshments. The affair, which was exclusive, was attended by members of the class only. During intermission the ladies of the class served ice cream and cake. Tomorrow evening the dancing lesson will be omitted on account of the High school exhibition. April 18th the dancing school will hold its closing reception in Casino hall. Ki ng—Butto n. The marriage of Arthur J. King, son of Mr. and Mrs. George King of Springfield, and Miss Elsie May Button, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Button of Elm street, was solemnized at the home of the bride at 7:30 last evening, Rev. Oliver W. Means of Springfield, formerly pastor of the First Congregational church, Enfield street, officiating. Miss Vilo Clay of Springfield, a sister of the groom, acted as bridesmaid and George King, a brother of the groom, was best man. Master Raymond Button, a brother of the bride, and Miss Eleanor King, a niece of the groom, were flower bearers. The bride was handsomely attired in white silk trimmed with Irish point lace and carried a bouquet of 19 white roses, expressive of her age. The bridesmaid wore a handsome gown of silk batiste and carried white roses. The bride is a graduate of the Enfield High school, class of 1910, and of the Bay Path institute, Springfield, and is a well' known young woman of the village. She has recently been employed as a stenographer by the local office of the Metropolitan Insurance Co. in the Mulligan block. The groom is a tobacco raiser. The young couple were the recipients of many beautiful gifts, including cut glass, silverware, furniture, china ware and money. About fifty guests, mainly relatives of the contracting parties, witnessed the ceremony. A wedding dinner was served to the guests, after which the newly wed ded pair left for a honeymoon trip to Boston and through the state of Vermont. They will be absent two weeks. On their return they will reside in their newly furnished home on Maple street, Hazardville. They will be at home to their many friends after May 1st. If you would like a good home at the High school Majestic Theatre. Miss Hilda Lenville, the new singer engaged at the Majestic, has a sweet contralto voice of much power and sings with a clear enunciation that is delightful She will prove a good drawing card. Arrangements have been made by the management for three big feature pictures each week hereafter and some remarkable reels are coming. Tomorrow, Friday night, a special feature will be a flag drill by 30 local children under the leadership and direction of Miss Maylotte. The children enjoy it, and so will you when you see the beautiful maneuvers. Twice each week there are special gifts from "Our Country Store" and the recipients appreciate the generosity of the management. Tonight 100 pounds of sugar will be given in 10-pound bags. The crowds continue to flow toward the Majestic and well they may, for with the five reels of pictures there are so many additional features that the program each evening is a remarkable one for the money, 5 and 10 cents. Local Baptists Holding Meetings. Under the direction of the State Street Baptist church of Springfield, Mass., the Easter gathering of the Baptist mission cottage meetings was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edwards, 104 Pleasant street, Monday evening.

'• Perhaps the village of Thompsonville does not need another town meeting to settle and determine the questions regarding the new school. It seems as though things come in a jump and then wait to catch a breath before jumping again. The spirit of the times, locally, is all that any active individual could ask for. Will the selectmen please print a statement of the town's exact financial condition? If they do it will be an easy matter to determine how much money should be spent. We need good schools more than we need sidewalks, policemen and town court. The sidewalks cost a lot of money, the police are paid good wages and the judge and prosecuting attorney get $500 a year for doing almost nothing, I am told. The town should cut down on all these things and then it would have more money. The new school should be built economically— four rooms ought to be sufficient for years. For all I can see and hear everyone seems to be looking out for their own interst and not for the town's interest. There are sufficient stores in town now, there are sufficient houses in town now and unless something unexpected strikes Thompsonville four school rooms will be ample for years. These rooms could be had for about $15,- 000, and what need is there for a larger school? If the selctmen are at the bottom of this new school deal they should be told that the people do not want an eight-room building. The public money should be well guarded and the selectmen should be made to cut down all salaries of men in office and then be told that they cannot build an eight-room building. J. M. C. Thompsonville, Conn. 51! .Mil . sill iM To The Thompsonville Press: Enfield should come to the front.! It has been at the end long enough. The small matters, the trifles always seem like mountains and burdens to people who have been hanging around here all their lives. Do things as they're done in the city. We are paying the debts of the Civil and Spanish war—then let the boys to come pay our debts. Letter carriers and a new railroad station is what the town needs. Erect public buildings and they will be paid for, you can bet. Town taxes and the price of meat and sugar may be higher but more money will be earned. The big talk about a little school makes me tired. Pay Seth Alden $6,500 for this land, build a $45,000 school, then build another one and a new town building. Make the government give us a $90,000 postoflice. If you spend money you will get it back; if you do not, make the kids pay for it. In New York, where I came from, we had new docks every year, new buildings, in fact, as we needed them. The old residents of this place and the old farmers should wake up and spend a dollar without a fear. WORKER. ; Dance Saturday Night.
