Wilson: "We are receiving a number inquiries with reference to the qutrements which will be made accrediting high schools for next year, since the high school inspection department has been tram--fen cd by the legislature from the State University to the State Department of Education. It is our purpose at some time during the year to inspect every high school in the s|ate, including She one, two, and three-year high schools, under the supervision of the county superintendents* of schools. It will he our plan to continue th** standard already established, and, as nearly as possible, carry out the policy heretofore pursued by the inspectors from the university. We believe that the superintendents and hoards of education understand by this time what the requirements are, and in employing teachers for the next school year we insist that only those teachers be employed who will meet the requirements. It will not be our policy to issue temporary certificates to those who do not possess the standard requirements just in order to help a school “get by.” There seeius to be an impression that if a teacher has a certificate the school can be accredited. In order for any school to he accredited all of the teachers in the grades must be holders of certificates equivalent to a firin grade county certificate, or graduates from a fully accredited high school with professional training. The minimum requirements 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 certificates. “The purpose of this general letter, which is being sent to all city and county superintendents, is to call attention to these matters before it is too late for th# boards of education to meet the requirements. If there is any additional information that you wish, write either to Mr. A. C. Parsons, State High School Inspector at Norman, or to the State Department of Education, Oklahoma City.”    * By the Associated Press OKLAHOMA CITY, May 31.

The greater part of the objections raised in the German counter proposals have, iii the opinion of French diplomatic and political circles, already been set forth in the various separate German notes and duly answered by the allies. Consequently, it is said, there chn be no modification of the peace terms and there is no necessity for verbal discussions in which the Berlin government desires to involve entente powers. It is understood that the Council of Four will agree in this view in answering German counter proposals. The German peace delegation has been notified that the period of delay for presenting observations having* expired at 3 p. rn. Thursday no further notes will be accepted from them.

C., May 31.— 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 industrial training and found it an excellent corrective of the incipient discontent. Soon after the (jisturh-ance became apparent in the plant an investigation revealed that it centered iii one of the common laborers who seemed determined to "start something.” Much of his spare time was spent in magnifying defects in the present social system and in preaching doctrines of unrest. According to the U. S. Training Service of the Department of Labor which has a report on the case, the superintendent of the shop recognized that this disturber, whose name was Frank, had considerable native ability and it was decided to give him the chance he had so many times said was denied him. j Accordingly, Frank was asked to lay aside his broom and to operate a machine. With the aid of a competent instructor representing the firm’s training department he I soon learned to run a simple machine. After operating it for a Uni# 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 aiver this employee was really remarkable. Each pay day he drew approximately 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. This actual occurrence is one of several which the U. S. Training Service cites to show that industrial training gives workers an opportunity for self improvement which is the best cure for discontent of an unhealthy sort.
