(Copyright. 191S. by Mini Anna B. 81ei )
IN vocational training Is found a com
plete reversal of present systems of
education. From the failure of
sense Information to fit a child for
life work, a lesson for the future must
be learned. The kindergarten must bo
come a rpal "garden" as Froebel In
tended, and the work of the educator
must be, not to supply the child with
Ideas, but t ohelp him give expression to
hip own Ideas.

Ignorant of the fact or not. It is the
duty of our educators to see that no
child remains Ignorant of the fact that
If the Ideas which stray Into his Intel
lect from without are rolled back over

ho Is cheating himself out of any good

Perhaps the dlfforence between Intel

since It Is not mm mi a I to hear the two

Intelligence. The talkative child be
comes alert, quick to notice things aud
ible, or visible, and to comment thereon.
But there Is a great deal of difference
botwoen alertness and mental powers.
The men and women who aro In possess
ion of unusual mental powers have,
without exception, been children of few
words. Their number of words, to the
minute, may still be few, but each of
them Is treasured more than a thousand
uttered by the common tongue-wagger
Our present attempts to educnte our
children by means of sense Informa
tion is responsible for our chattering
mlnd-fllghty school graduates, who, ac
cording to employers' testimony, are
unfit for any kind of work. It Is not
onlv a change In our systems of educa
tion wo nerd in order to develop the
best powers in our children. It is a
complete reversal. Instead of crowding
them with Ideas from without wo should
help thorn to express their own ideas.
Wa should let our children alone until
we can understand what they want to
trv to do and then facilitate their ef
forts as much as possible without tak
ing the work of self-expression away
Let us Insist that our kindergartens
be real gardens, as Froebel Intended,
with simple tools and materials lying
handy. Let each child help himself to
the tools and things he wants. Tf asked
what he Intends to do, he will tell It
without hesitancy. The Idea Is In hi
mind though his ability to carry It
out may bo enthcly lacking. The work
of the educator should not be to supply
the child with Ideas, but to help nlm
give expression to his own Ideas. Now
teachers and textbooks supply our
children too abundantly with Ideas, but
do not even Rive them chances to ex
press either their own, or the acquired
Ideas let alone helping them. It Is riot I
how much one nas neara or, or seen,

"To do. to dare, to keep Bllent." These
words were cut Into the very stones
over the doorways of ancient places of
education. Whv should they not be

of our educators and our children? Why
