WORKERS' INSTITUTE NEEDS
TEACHERS. The Workers' Insti
tute is a live institution and, there
fore, it has its plans and dreams,
even its castles in the air. Its ideal
Js to create a working class univer
sity having within its walls a place
for the little tots, our growing high
school boys arid girls, the young
worker and the mature immigrant.
Material is abundant. Sympathies
of heworkers are with the institute.
Students are flocking in, they work,
.they build, make their own tables,
decorate and clean the place but
mere physical energy is not suffi
The institute needs the support
and the active co-operation of the
intellectual radicals, not leaders, but
.workers, teachers, lecturers. .The
English classes need teachers with
modern ideas about education, the
high school classes require a staff of
good educational iconoclasts and
constructive rebels, who look at their
history, social and natural sciences
from a new angle. The Sunday
school children need men and wom
en of warm heart and breadth of
vision, capable of counteracting the
poisonous influence of the military
drills, false patriotism, masked re
ligion " and "success-at-any-jmce"
The institute is on a sound finan
cial basis. It pays the teachers well.
It does not expect any charity. It
aims to concentrate around itself the
strong intellectual forces of Chicago
and make it worth their while. A
few teachers are wanted right now in
the, English classes and Sunday
school. Plans are laid for broader
work early in the fall and the Work
ers' Institute appeals through this
paper to all the radical teachers to
come to its assistance.
Visit the institute at your earliest
convenience. Interview Sup't To-
binson. He will welcome you any
evening between 6 and 7:30 -and
make- arrangements. Or write to
