JACKSONVILLE^ Fla^ Dec 30.—
The opening meeting of the fifteenth
annual cession of the Bouthern Edu
cational Association consisted of the
addresses of welcome and responses
at the opera- house last evening.
The attendance was large, brilliant,
and the audience moved easily to en
thusiasm as It listened to the pane
gyric* spoken of education In the
South—Its struggles, achievements
and future promises.
This new phenix city of the South
has opened welcoming arms broadly
to her distinguished pedagogic guents
—both those of the Southern and the
state associations. The spirit of prog
ress ond hospitality manifested on ail
sides will make for a most successful
series of symposiums on the great and
vital problem of educational advance
ment In Dixie.
The address by President Lynch, of
ths Florida State Teachers* Associa
tion, was pointed and shockingly prac
tical .upon mine r.ubjecta affecting
school methods In the South. Presi
dent Lynch showed the r.trong perve
man sure of his observations and
fixed In his convictions an to the needs
and errors of educnt'onal things as
they present themselves.
His cogent and well-reasoned de
nunciation of the overloaded courses
:,t study in our Bouthern common
hools drew forth the first hearty ap
plause of the evening, lie voiced a
feeling that seldom gets expression
nowadays, but that Is very prevalent
among the rank and file of laymen
whose children fill the public schools.
They believe, ns he argued, that a
4mntterlng of a score of study-sub
jects, under the futile guidance of
eachers themselves not able to under
stand the thlnga they are act to teach,
is an educational malfeasance toward
ll*e mass of pupils who can never hopo
to go beyond the grammar schools at
nest. Ife Insisted that sane and safe
education In the South In the popular
schools should, for the present and
near future, nt least, be rigidly reduced
to the fundamental studies of a pri
mary English course.
An Unpardonablo Waste,
Such a scheme—embracing spelling,
ending, writing, arithmetic, history
»nd geography—would meet every
tenslble demand of the growing gen
(ration, fulfill the measure of state
lull*, expend the peoples money for
the real purpose for which they swent
t out In faxes and make It possible
o get n full complement of teachers
equipped with such simple profl-
iencles. President Lynch was cape
dally emphat'c In criticism of the
fsddlstle forms of manual training,
so-called, that has been Imposed to no
practical benefit upon many of
public school systems. They Irivolvo
waatifte of money, a mummery of In-
atruclon and a final disappointment
to expectations of both parents

The address of Chancellor Walter B.
Hill, chancellor of the University of

a deliberate and strongly-phrased ar
gument—this time In the shape of
continued plea for national aid In tho
leveling up of educational' facilities In
nil sections of the nntios. That pater
nallatlc governmental co-operation
would most largely afTect and benefit
the South, nt first. And It Is the
grounded opinion of Chancellor llill
that the nation owes this much to tho
section whose educational problem!

the henring of official reports both of
the officers of the association and from
the state superintendents of the vari
ous Bouthern states, detailing In each
of the latter the especial points of pro
gress during the put year In each
The principal feature of the Utter
report* was the news of growing pop
ular devotion to public school mainte
nance. This Is Indicated by well-di
rected efforts In nearly every Bouthern
legislative assembly to devise ways to
Increase the funds for the public edu
cation. The means employed to this
end nre various. Including direct tax
levies, local taxation. Increased and
newly devised license and franchise
fees, and bond issuer, by local corpora
The significant conclusion from these
reports Is that there Arc amp! re

get such an equitable tax system tn
