ground is an enclosed space, equipped
with apparatus, and competently su

from seven to seventeen.
History cf Playgrounds.
She then told the history of play
grounds. Among the Greek children
play was compulsory, so they had
dancing and games in school. Merlin
started their playgrounds with a sand
garden. All European countries have
hi grounds, ami even Japan has
some. The first playground in. Amer
ica was founded in Northampton in
IM'ft, hut it was not very long-lived.
In her remarks Mrs. Gunn gave the
dates of the founding of .many of
the Successful playgrounds in the

Mrs. Gunn told of the types of
equipment that, are placed in the
playground, and the athletics that are
enjoyed by both boys and girls. In
the more advanced playgrounds the
children have festivals on May Day
and many of the holidays of the year.
New York has the costliest play
ground in the world, and Chicago, De

and Philadelphia all have well-organized
In her closing remarks she said
that playgrounds must have lots oi
room. One of the rules that is now
being enforced is that ench child
have thirty square feet to play in.
She also said that there must he a
well trained supervisor and the activ
ities must be recreative and interest

fact that there is a great need of play
leaders, especially women.

In her closing remarks Miss Alex

Montessori: "The 'Children's Houses
have, in fact, solved so many of the
social and pedagogical problems in
ways which have seemed to be Uto
pian, that they are a part of that
modern transformation cf the home
which must most surely be realized
before manv vears have passed. In
this way they touch directly the most

apparatus illustrated the talk. She
spoke very highly .of. the Montessori !
method and said that in her own work
she would not be without it. She
showed how the children from the
first grade are taught to study. How
they are taught to button and unbut
ton dresses, to lace and button shoes,
to hook dresses, and to fasten draw
strings. She also told of the wdrkof
the children in the upper grades who
are taught to set the table, and to
wash and wipe the dishes and put
them away. Miss Uecke said that
there were some things about the
Montessori Method not needed in
America, and in closing she said: "I
should like to say that anything that
make:j the mechanical part of the
task cf learning to read and write
easier, should be hailed with joy and
adopt ?d at once. And we shall owe
to Dr. Montessori a debt of gratitude
if her work results in teaching being
done in smaller groups, as should be

Principal Home Speaks.
The concluding address of the even
ing was made by Principal Pearley
L. Home of the Kamehameha Schools,
who gave a comprehensive criticism
of -the Montessori Method. One of
his chief objections to the method
was that the children are taught in
dividually and no heed is paid to

writing from that city on September

People were turned away simply
couldn't get in. After the lecture at
least twenty-five people came forward
and asked questions, and two of them
called at the hotel this morning. To

the Firs? Unitarian church, and on
Wednesday afternoon I shall address
the Rotary Club, and on the evening

that as many people are turned away
from my lectures as attend tlfem. I
heard the remark made that the rep
resentation of people at them was
from the best business element, and
I have also heard that several will
visit Hawaii. My next lectures will
be given in Spokane, and then I will
return to Seattle to fill a few other
dates that I have made."
Now at Vancouver.
The press of Seattle has given
much attention to Mr. Smith's lec
tures. Following his lectures in Spo
kane and his return engagements in
Seattle, Mr. Smith went to Vancou
ver, B. C, where he is delivering a
series of lectures now.
