Wilson: "We are receiving n minvber of inquiries with reference to the re- iquirements which will -be made in j accrediting high schools for next I year, since the high school inspec- tion department has "been trans- for red by the legislature from the i State University to the State Do- Ipartineiit of Education. I It purpose at some time i during 'the year lo inspect every :high school in the including the one. two, and three-year high .schools, under the supervision of tho county superintendents- of 'schools. It will be our plan to con- tinue the standar-J already estab- lished, and. as nearly as possible, carry out the policy heretofore pur- sued by the inspectors from the uni- versity. We believe that the superintend- lents and boards of education under- stand by this time what the re- l quirements are, and in employing (teachers for the next school year we insist that only those teachers be employed who will meet the re- quirements. It will not be our policy to Issue' temporary certifi- cates lo those who do not pos- sess the standard requirements just In order to help a school "Set by." There seems to be an impression that If a teacher has a the school can be ac- credited. In order for any, school to be accredited all of the teachers in tho grades must be holders of certificates equivalent to a first grade county certificate, .or grad- uates from a fully accredited high school with professional training. The minimum requirement" for high school teachers is two years for high school teachers is two years of college work, and at least one teacher out of three should possess" a degree from a standard college, and a majority of the teachers in the high school must have a degree or be holders of life high school cer- tificates. "The purpose of this general let- ter, which in being sent to all cityl and county superintendents, la to call attention to these matters toe- fore it is too late for 'boards of education to meet the requirements.

C., May When a restless condition akin to Bolshevism recently began to de- velop among workers in a rather small shop in a leading Ohio city, the management resorted to indus- trial training and found it an ex- cellent corrective of the incipient discontent. Soon after the disturb- ance became apparent In the plant an Investigation revealed that it centered in one of the common la- borers who- seemed determined to "start something." Much of his spare time was spent In magnifying defects in the present social syster.i and in preaching doctrines of un- rest. According to the U. S. Training Service of the Department of La- bor which has a report on the case, the superintendent of the shop rec- ognized that this disturber, whose name was Frank, had considerable native ability and it was decided to give him the chance he had so many tlmas said was denied him. Accordingly, Frank was asked .to lay aside his broom and to oper- ate a machine. With the aid of a competent instructor representing the firm's training department he soon learned to run a simple ma- chine! After operating It for a time he was promoted to a more difficult machine where he was giv- en -further instruction. According to the shop management the change In attitude which came "over this employee was really remarkable. Each pay day he drew approximate- ly three times as much money as he had while wielding a broom, and soon' began payments on a home. His anarchistic discourses gave place to a spirited condemnation of Bolshevism. V This actual occurrence Is one of several which the U. S. Training Service cites to show that .Indus- trial training gives workers an op- portunity for self Improvement which Is tlie best cure for discon- tent of an unhealthy i The.
