briefly of the plans for the future
of the association, expressing the
desire that at least four meetings
The first speaker presented was
Mr. W. W. Fuller, the county su
perintendent of education, who ad
dressed his remarks especially to
the trustees. The people of the coun
ty are fortunate in having such a
capable, alert and active young man
at the head of the educational sys
tem of the county. The wonder is
that they hold him at the cunpara
tively small salary he is paid.
Mr. A. S. Tompkins who bas j
been one of the trustees of tbe
Edgefirld schools for the past 25
years and more spoke for the trus
tees, saying much to inspire and en
courage the teachers present.

the teacheis in the Edgetield High
School, made an exceedingly inter
esting talk on teach in ir history.

she has introduced with very sat
isfactory results. She has found
maps very helpful in teaching his
toryr- exhibiting , to the teachers
present the maps thu she uses in
ber classroom work.
Prof. Copenhaver read a carefully
prepared paper on teaching Latin
in the public schools. He deplored
the fact that superficial practical
courses are being stressed in the
schools to the neglect of Latin, em
phasizing the cultural value of this
particular study. While Prof. Co
penhaver does not advocate com
pelling every pupil to study Latin,
yet he urges that it is necessary for
those who purpose educating them
selves in the fullest and broadest
Prof. G. F. Long, the principal
of the Harmony school, presented
in a most helpful manner the sub
ject of teaching higher mathematics.
From his wide experience he made
suggestions that will be of value to
tbe younger and less experienced
teacher?-, especially in the teaching
of algebra. Prof. Long is one of the
best and most successful teachers |
the county has ever had.
Mr. P. N. Lott, the county
demonstration agent, was presVnt
and was given an opportunity by
Prof. Lyon to address the teacher*
upon the importance ot teaching
agriculture in the public schools.
He bad with him a copy of the
manual which has been prepared by
Clemson experts especially for the
public schools. Nearly a dozen
teachers stated that they would
adopt the manual for their schools.
Miss Linda Hunter, being in
Edgetield on a visit to her sister.
Mrs. L. T. May, was present and
upon request addressed the teach
ers. Miss Hunter holds one of the
most important positions among
the educators in Soutu Carolina,
being supervisor of schools in the
27 mill villages of Spartanburg
county. For 10 years she was ac
tively engaged in teaching in ihe
Piedmont section and the signal
success which she achieved caused
her to be chosen for this important
work in Spartanburg county. Miss
Hunter made many practical and
helpful suggestions to the teacher*.
While the attendance upon Sat
urday's meeting was much smaller
than it should have been, yet the
meeting was one of the most inter-;
esting and helpful that has been
held. This beginning for the term i
of 1915-16 should encourage tb
officers and teachers to plan f<r
