The school officers of Washtenaw

county held a conference in the supervisors

room at the court house yesterday.

Nearly every township in the

connty is represented and a great deal

tf iuterest is manifested by the 40 or

50 school officers who are present.

The topics discussed in the morning were

the hiring of teachers, the term schedule,

the length of the school year and

school fnnds.

On the subject of hiring teachers,

there was no dissenting voice from the

n that the teachers should be

hired for the full year. Michael

Brann, of Ann Arbor town, was the

only man who mentioned salaries and

he brought out the interesting fact that

Jiis district had only had two teachers

in 11 years. In the past three years

pnpils had graduated from the

eighth grade.

It was decided that the school year

under ordinary conditions and in a

proper sized district should be at least

i)ine months long and that the winter

term should be as long as possible and

not less than fonr months. Also that

the fall term sbonld begin on the first

Monday in September.

The meeting of the school officers of

the connty at the court house was couclnded

yesterday afternoon and the interest

was sustained to the end.

Tbe subject of the adoption of a

course of study was taken up. Commissioner

Lister said that the course cf

study which was sent out by the state

department two years ago has been

placed in every school house in the

county. He urged that at the next

meeting of the school boards they

adopt tbat course of study for the

-eighth grade at least. This led up to

tbe discussion of the next topic, the

ninth grade in the district school. All

seemed in favor of the ninth and tenth

grades being taught where conditions

permitted.| Where the schools were too

large they did not believe the smaller

children should be slighted to main

tain the extra grades.

"School Apparatus." Commissioner

Lister discussed this question by paying

his compliments to school apparatus

agents, who foisted upon districts

worthless or nearly worthless

devices at exhorbitant prices. There

was nothing in the line oE necessary

apparatus that could not be bought

from their own local dealers. One

chart man came into Washtenaw

county during the past year and took

out $4,000 in school money. Mr.

Lister advised them 1 the discussion was the appointment of Whac is known as the First Presby-

of the meeting. He gave a great

many statements of value to school

officers which were highly appreciated.

The meeting created such an impression

of its value on school officers present

that it was unanimously agreed to

make the organization a permanent

affair, and the following officers were

elected: President, Hon. J. K. Campbell,

of Augusta; secretary, A. D.

Crittenderi, of Saline; treasurer, M. J.

Braun, of Ann Arbor township, and

these three together with the school

commissioner were to constitute an executive


The results of this meeting in Anu

Arbor will be tbat the officers who

were present will have a better appreciation

of the responsibilities of their

position. It will tend to more nniformity

of work in the various districts

which logically means that the

district schools will be more perfectly

iu tune with the general educational

progress-of the state. Every district

not represented suffers a distinct loss.

An effort will be made to extend the

benefits of the School Officers' Association

of Washtenaw county to the utmost

corners of the county. It will

also tend towards improvement in

school architecture and a hundred other

questions of importance to be taken up.

It is possible that the next meeting will

be called in connection with the next

teachers' convention.

Erdman was coming down the ladder

A crowd quickly gathered aud Coroner

Coroner Watts summoned the following

jury: V. Crittendeu, M. C. Peterson

Fred R. Gillen, Chas. F. Saur, Fred

taken to Dieterl9's undertaking rooms.

Dr. M. L. Belser made an examination

The testimony at the inquest was
