Four years with W. Ahana,

Garments cleaned and pressed
Latest prevailing fashions.
Any reform or development in
educational work requires the sus
taining force of public opinion.
Thirty years ago the high schocl
was opposed as undemocratic; tax
payers objected to being taxed to
support higher education. But
the high school, nevertheless, was
established. At first it was meag
erly supported and poorly equip
ped; it was compelled to charge
tuition in order to exist at all.
Yet it lived, and today the party
or faction that would attempt to
cripple its growth is doomed to
failure and defeat. Public senti
ment has been educated. So has
it been with the introduction of
manual training and domestic
science; so has it been with medi
cal inspection; and school sanita
tion. An intelligent acquaintance,
by the public, with that which is
sound and helpful to individual
and social life, will always insure
hearty approval and support.
A Few Things for Teachers Not to Do
obey, the smaller ones will give
no trouble. The teacher who is
determined to have a quiet, studi
ous school will not neglect to give
prompt attention to misdemeanors
on the part of the older pupils.
Do not fait to have a daily pro
gram so that each child will know
just exactly what he is expected
to do at each period of the day.
Do not neglect the daily prepara
tion. No matter how many times
you may have reviewed a subject,
it will do no harm to have it
fresh in your mind and the teach
er owes it to herself as well as to
the scholars to make every thing
as interesting as possible.
One more thing, do not fail to
be on time. The teacher had bet
ter be on the schoolground at
seven o'clock if necessary, than
to allow any of the scholars to get
there first. If several of the chil
dren get there ahead of the teach
er, she will be compelled to listen
to all sorts of complaints that she
can never get the real facts about;
and the day will be spoiled to a
great extent before thfe work be
gins. so do not be late.

One of the first things many
teachers are tempted to do at the
beginning of the term is to make
rules; and a good thing to re
member in this connection is to
stop making them before you be
gin. As surely as you tell a room
full of pupils that they must not
whisper, each separate one there
will think of some very important
thing to tell to some one near him
and he will fairly explode until he
has relieved himself of that idea.
And one who reads this will know
that this is true from his own ex
perience, for practically every per
son has met the same condition in
his school life. And it is the same
way with anything else that is
forbidden. As soon as the chil
dren hear what it is, that is the
very thing they want to do most;
so don't make rules.
Do not neglect the first case of
insubordi nation or disobedience that
occurs. Attend to it promptly
and judiciously even if it is the
very first thing you have to do
after ringing the bell, and it will
very likely be a long time before
you have the second. Children
will know by the end of the first
day of school just about how far
they can go, and it will be a pretty
difficult thing for a teacher to re
gain control that may be lost
during the first six hours' ac
quaintance with her pupils. One
never knows just what is going to
happen; but the teacher will have
abundant opportunity on the
eventful first day to impress her
force or lack of force of character
on her pupils. It will befareasier
to overlook slight disobediences
later on in the term when she
has become acquainted with the
different dispositions of the chil
dren, than on the, first morning.
Do not imagine that you can
treat all the pupils alike. Some
scholars will 30 quietly and dili
gently to work to prepare a lesson
that others in the same class will
not be willing to give five min
utes' effort to. Now, if there are
any little favors Jo bestow such
as reading a story, or any particu
lar thing, the diligent pupil may
like to do let him do it: and
make it plain to the restless, un
ruly scholar that he can gain the
same privileges by attending to
Do not punish the little children
for their little offenses and pass

A few years ago the rural- high
school was merely a city high
school set down in the country. It
taught only the traditional sub
jects and found its chief function
in preparing a few studiously in
clined pupils for college. It afford
ed no vocational instruction or
training, and its teachers were
able to perform their entire duty,
satisfactorily, too, without exert
ing any particular influence upon,
or even coming into contact with,
those members of the community
who were not enrolled in its regu
lar classes. The school was i n
session five or six hours a day for
five days a week during thirty to
forty weeks of the year; through
out the remaining hours, days,
and weeks it was closed and ap
Such schools prevail today, but
they are no longer satisfactory; a
new type of school is evolving and
a new conception of the functions
of the rural high school is growing.
In the cities the establishment of
technical high schools or units,
affording vocational education in
business methods and practices, in
home economics, and in the va
rious industries, met with such
immediate and hearty approval that
the class rooms, laboratories, and
shops of these schools soon became
crowded, while many vacant seats
confronted the teachers in the
classical and college-preparatory
schools. In the country a like
hearty approval has been given
vocational courses in agriculture
and home economic wherever
these subjects have been intro
duced, and the experiment has
gone far enough to demonstrate
its practicality and to give un
mistakable evidence of its popular
ity in terms of increased atten
dance and special state appropria
tions for instruction in agriculture
and home, economics. Another
indication o f the popularity of
.such is found in the tendency to
speak of schools in which these
subjects are definitely provided for
a s "agricultural high schools,"
and, indeed, the term is not in
appropriate in the case of schools
doing real high school work and
employing special teachers for
these vocational subjects.
But the evolution of the high
school into an agricultural high

agricultural high school the work
has as yet no name at all. Per
haps the designation "community
work" expresses it well. This
work in the high school differs
from that in the colleges, however,
in that the high school deals with
folks at first hand while the col
lege often treats with them at the
length of a Mate. I he agricul
tural high school usually is situa
ted in the midst of a farming peo
ple. It is with them that its work
lies. The community work of the
agricultural high school is thus
elemental, since there is no loss of
power in transmission wnere tne

addition of subjects and change in
name, in many cases it lias result
ed in an entire change in the point
of view. Educators are beginning
to see that the agricultural high
school, in addition to its duties
to the pupils who enroll in its
classes, may ultimately find one of
its greatest fields of useful en
deavor among those members of
the community who do not attend
school and for whom the school
funds are not usually appropriated.
It is by its work with the com
munity at large with the men
and women on the farms and the
boys and girls who can not attend
school regularly that the agricul
tural high school may find its
strongest cla-m upon popular attention.

This effort of the agricultural
high school to uplift its rural com
munity is aided by the fact that it
is a vocational school. Even
though schools of the old or class
ical type might just as much de
sire to help the people, yet they
would find less opportunity and
ability to do so because of their
limited equipment along lines of
practical things. The old type of
high school would find it difficult
to extend among all the people
its teaching of history, mathema-1
tics, or languages. The agricul- j
tural high school, however, finds!
jit easy to extend its teaching of
