Molyneux Responds. j
On behalf of tho teachers, buperlnten
dent Alma Molyneux of Logan responded.
He expressed the pleasure- lie and his
associates felt at tho opportunity of col
lecting together under circumstances so
auspicious. He spoke briefly, saying In

spond in bhalr of. this devoted bodv
of teachers to audi a hearty wcl-,
I We owe much to this great com
monwealth and to this beautiful
city. To the state we aro Indebted
for support. To this city wo arc
I grateful for its hospitality. To both
we are thankful for tho genera!
1 good will. Our hearts are fountaina
of gratitude for the greetings and
i hospitality extended, but love for
this state-and for this city can best
bp shown in service. Wo are but
I sen-ants of the people in a. noble and
i worthy cause. The school Is a func-
lion of the . state and the IntclII- i
! genee of the slate Is In largo mca- '
sure tho product uf the school. Both f
i aro mutually obligated.
John Howard, who gave his life In
sacrifice for tho uplift of prison
wretches throughout Europe earned
for himself this fitting and Inspiring
epitaph: "He who devotes his life to
ihe good of mankind treads an open
but unfre.ciucntcd path to Immor
i tallty." Every true teacher Is actu
ated In cause Just as groat.
Wy are the guardians of the fu
ture generation. To none Is en
trusted greater responsibility. We
ore tho trustees of scholarship and
debtors for character, intelligence
and .phvslcal manhood. "Wc arc here
In tho bond of brotherhood. What we
seek concerns less ourselves than
those for whom we toll. What we
do means little for the present but
much for tho future. Wo are here
in Iho spirit of him who "came not
to bo ministered unlo but io mln

ner spirll, the highest principle of the
soul, the vision, and hope of com
prehensive ideals. Wo are the seek
ers cf truth, and Inspiration May
we make of bur futures what we
each most wish for.
In conclusion, let me again assure
you that the teachers of this slate
accept with pleasure and gratitude
the welcome so generously given na.
Much interest was manifested In the
annual address of Hie association's presi
dent. John M. Mills, superintendent of
I the Ogden city schools. Mr. Mills rc
! viewed the work of the past year and
predicted wonderful progress for the fu
ture. Tils address follows:
Ours is tho task of training the
youth, rather wo supplement the
I home in its effort. Oflen. parents
nrc inclined to leave the responsibili
ty entirely with the teachers,
though the schools have the children
only five and one-half hours out of
the twenty-four, and though each
teacher has from thirty to fifty pu-
pits. Jt is expected by many that tho I
entire work of their training should j
be done at school. Wc should as- '
sumo this responsibility ourselves as
completely as if it were we alone who
have this task to perform. Alexan
der said he was indebted to his fa
ther for living, but to his teacher for
living well. And yet, at times wc
cannot help feeling that parents
ought to carry the responsibility,
since they have fewer children to
guide and are with them from birth,
i so Intimately that they know or
I ought to know the very thoughts
! that their children arc thinking. I

at a very early age. Their work
should not be put on them as a pun
I Ishmcnt nor should they begin work
that has no interest In it. Children,
like grownups, arc interested in
working out problems. Horace Mann
ttates that a teacher who is attempt
ing to teach without inspiring the
pupil with a desire to learn Is ham
mering on cold iron. The greatest
difficulty in training the young Is
met in connection with those who do
not have to work and do not know
the value of money. The men and
women who occupy the positions of
leadership Jn the community, the na
tion, and the world arc not gener
ally from this clasp. Occasionally,
perhaps, someone untrained to work
while young may achieve success
later, but thfs Ik done not because
of his lack of early training, but in'
spite of it. Frequently parents find
out too late that their Indulgence
has handicapped , their child. Once
this discovery Is made, too many
parents do not know how to make

Recently the extreme penaitv of

How Luxury Hinders.
A mother wrote Tho Youth's Com
panion telling the editor (hat she
had a daughter who was slow and
stupid in school, sho said, "Why lis
this? I always had to work. My
mother had 10 work. In tho struggle
we had for Jiving, however, we
gained a fair education. I mado up
my mind that my daughter should
not have tho slrugglo ! had. so I re
lieved her from all care and work
that sho might bo unhampered In her
. school. Sho Is now a grown young
lady, but sho doesn't like to study
and cannot leurn anything when she
docs study." lilbcrt Hubbard tells
litis mother iHnt if her daughter had
had tho oxvcllent advantages which
caiiiO' to her mother and grand
mother, the troubles of tlte third gen
eration might have been milder. If
not altogether lucking. Primitive
maniocs little for. himself when na
ture does much for him. If nature
provides fruits, nuts, herbs, fish and

effort, an indolent, careless, igorant,
unambitious people will bo the re

livery young man and every young
woman, every boy and girl should
know tho value of money. There is
only one way to get this knowl
edge, and lhat Is knowing the hard
ships and trials by which an hon
est dollar is made. Boys and girls
can be taught in the homo begin
ning on a small scale bv finding
kindling wood and making "beds and
olhur things that children will do
willingly if they arc properlv led to
it. As the ant can be led from the
course In which it is traveling tn the
loaf of sugar In the opposite direc
tion by having the pencil put down
in front of It each time It turns, so
a boy or clrl can lie trained lo a pur
suit In life, which ls honorable and
ye.t tho youth may make his own
choice. Many a good fanner has
been spoiled by trying to muku of
him a lawyer, a doctor, a teacher or
a minister without success. Addison
said. "What sculpture. K (0 a block
of marble, education is to the human
soul. The philosopher, the saint, the
hero, tho wise and the good or the
great very often lie hid and con
cealed in a pleblan which proper edu
cation might have disinterred and
brought to light." This thought .is
recast by Daniel Webster: "if We
work upon marble, it will perish; if
on brass. Unio will efface It: If we
rear temples they will crumble into
riust- but if wo work upon immortal
, minds, and Imbue them with princi
ples, with ihe Just fear of God and
lore of our follow man. wc engrave
i on those tables something that will
; brighten to all clcrnity.'"
j School Spirit Good.
While there aro many changes thai
we can and must make lo fit Ihe
needs of all the people-vet the public
school system of the United Slates is
good It ls filled with the spirit of
democracy. The children of tho rich
and the poor, no matter what their
religious or political faith may be.
may meet on common ground! and
compete in a pleasant struggle for su
premacy in the line of educational
Illness for community life. The child
educationally belongs lo the. state,
and the grasping, selfish parent or
guardian ha no right to deprive the
child of the free use of tho public
schools, and cannot do so under out
law. We truly have a right to be
true and loyal and patriotic to a i
government that thus insures the '
opportunity for a correct start, in life .
and further guarantees our life, lib
erty and pursuit of happiness. All
honest. Intelligent and. grateful pco
jle, whether of this country or some
other, honor tho flag of such a na
tion. For a number of years we would
hear severe criticisms at conventions
by men of our own profession and
nothlnff was given to take the place
of Ihe bad methods that were as
sailed. Of late, however, construc
tive criticism is used more and more.
Education Is not getting facts from
books. It Is getting strength and
power from self-effort. The dutv be
fore us is to' use our intelligence In
the reconstruction of all school work
and show the good that Is In the
school system by results. It is the
duty of the teacher to conduct her
class with skill. Her skill could well
be shown by giving some attention
lo the individual pupils of her class.
During the last two decades we have
come to believe that we were not all
fashioned for the same. Identical
school training. Wo have known
even longer than that that wc would
nol follow the same lines In our life's
work, hut wo have been slow in
learning thai the same course in
school for all Individuals Is a sense
less misfit and a reckless perversion
Signs of Progress.
A few years ago our reforms in
education consisted mostlv of talk:
now wc hear of reforms, adjustments,
adaptations and experiments In every
part of our land. This means thnt
men and women are thinking. Think
ing generally loads to action, but
sometimes only to resolutions. Wc
sometimes think and then resolve,
then think again. Sometimes we
think wo aro thinking when wc are
only just thinking. Wo hesitate when
we look at this perfect educational
machine of ours which Father Time
has made, surrounded as it is with
centuries of traditions, gathered
from many lands and many people.
I wonder if wc aro really thinking
after all. Thinking in our school
work lo not a bad practice if our
thoughts are on the proposition, how
best to lead tho pupils to lives of un
selfishness. I knew of a teacher onco
who spent much timo thinKing of his
own futuro career of great useful
ness, neglecting many a golden op
portunity to do Immediate service to
the boys and girls near by. He do-
. sire? to become great. He will never
reach his aim until he loarns to do
small duties near by. When he learns
that well and hns forgotten eon m
his work, he has unconsciously
reached his aim. leaving the boast
ful side of his nature behind.

Tills movement Is International and
world-wide. When the history of the
present time Is wrltloti, It will lake
account of four great things: The
movement toward democracy: the
movement towards Industrial expan
sion: the movemont for universal
education; the revolution from sav
nge warfare to universal peace.
1 believe the greatest factor for
thu problems of the world lies In
education ror International arbitra
tion. A hundred years ago war was
the normul condition of man. Pres
ent lv wo will observe tho ono-hun-dredlh
unnlvcrsary of the signing of
the peace treaty between England
and tho United States. Since lhat
limo there have, been 3000 miles of
border hind and Inland sea between
this country and Canada with no
fortifications and with' no armed
Devastation of War.
The Unio Is rapidly approaching
when r.ll countries shall disband their
armies and disarm their navies, leav
ing perhaps one ship wlih each na
tion lo act as a police fon-o to guard
against a recurrence of piracy. The
time Is rapidly approaching when on
every shore in the world there shall
be absolute safety.
Dr. Claxton dwelt at length upon the
greiU cities that had tottered and fallen
because of warfare. He cited Rome.
Athens, Alexandria and others. He de
clared that their downfall had been due
to Invjusion by armed forces, lie attrib
uted the prcscnl power of Lngland to
tho fact that England had not boon In
vaded In centuries, giving the peoplo an
opportunity to progress along peaceful
lines and thereby develop the resources
of the country.
The speaker declared thai If the money
expended directly exclusive of pensions
and interest-bearing bonds for army
and navv purposes for the last two years
were otherwise employed. It could have
been made to accomplish tho following
results: Built a great national univer
sity and maintained it at a cost of
$10,000,000 a vear: given a new university
to every state with SI. 000,000 for main
tenance annually: given each stute live
normal schools for tho training of teach
ers, with a yearly fund of 5100,000: given
each stato thirty agricultural schools,
wltli li,000 avcrv year for maintenance,
would have put 100 new high schools In
everv state, with a yearly Income of
Country Is Safe.
"And the country." ho said, "would
have been fully as healthy had these
things been done as it was having ex
pended the money for army and navy
equipment. Tho danger to this country
Is not fvom foreign countries. If there
is any danger it threatens from within,
and just so long as wo are sound with
in, just so long will we abide in abso
lute security." j
Dr. Claxton said that the money ex-
ponded bv France, Germany, England
and the United Slates in a generation for
armament would amount to $50,000.
000,000. Applied to the building of homes,
he said, it would provide for 20,000.000 1
families. There were so many ways in
which the money could be used for re
lieving human woes that now goes Into
guns and ships, he said, that it was
really astounding to reflect upon the good
that could be done. Ho declared lhat If
the government gave only a small part of
this monev towards the battle against
tuberculosis, within twenty years there
would nol be a single case of "white

he said, vellow fever entirely eradicated
and practically every disease germ could
be destroyed if only a portion of the
monev now used for war equipment could
be divertpd to that purpose. The tillage
of the soil could be vastly improved. It
has been shown, said Dr. Claxton, that
in many parts of the south 130 bushels
of corn to the acre could bo grown in
stead of twenty-five to thirty; three
bales of cotton could be produced instead
of one. All that was needed to 'bring
these conditions about was the applica

would quickly come were Iho government
