Hillsboro defeated Bainbridge at
Bainbridge Sunday afternoon by the
score of 29 to 1. The slaughter was
awful and the local boys have hardly

of running the bases.

corners of the lot but clear out of It

single was ashamed of himself.

Warren aild Dr. Green
Interesting and Enter
ATTENDANCE IS LARGE
Subjects of Lectures are Well
Chosen and Ably Handled,
Containing Very Impor
The sessions are being held In the
Washington Building. The teachers
were late In coming and the first ses
sion was brief, adjourning at 10.30.
Supt Patterson conducted the open
ing exercises, and the Underwood
Orchestra furnished good music.
Dr. Green failed to get in for the
morning work and Supt. Warren gave
the only lecture. It was well worth
the time of the enttre session.
His message is most timely and
helpful. He warns the teacher to not
depend upon Inspiration but upon
preparation with such methods and
management as will give the best to
every child. He does not believe
enough care is given by the teachers
in planning work to give the indi
vidual pupil the proper chance.
He spoke very highly of the new
School Code and believes the required
preparation of teachers will bring the
One hundred and five, enrolled dur
ing the forenoon.
Supt. Warren's afternoon lecture
was "The Teacher". He advocates the
teacher asking himself, "Am I fitted
for the job?" and believes that build
ings and material equipment do not
count for nearly so much as the "live"
teacher who keeps right on preparing,
taking in and giving out the true
intellectual "bread of life."
The teacher should not let anything
Interfere, he said, so that his school
work becomes a secondary consldera
tion. That he should reach up In his
associations and come in contact with
persons who "have done things" j
insisted that a teacher should be nor
mal and natural and his life a continu
ous school. All he said was definite
and of great value.
Dr. Francis Green talked on "Inter
rogation PoInts",not the ones used for
punctuation but the human ones. He
quoted wisely and well from many
authors to clinch his statements;
emphasised the necessity of the cult!
vation of an inquiring mind and
thought It would be well for most of
us to follow the example of Sidney
Smith and have a "Thinking Post."
He urged the need of clear ideals, of
self questioning, constant growth and
acceptance of the creed that "Schools'
should bo carried forward In the inter-,
est of, and for the advancement of
Some pertinent questions, he said,
to be self asked and answered were,
"What brings us together?" "Why
are we here ?" (and wondered If the
pay was a chief factor.) "Am I fitted
physically, intellectually, morally to
be a teacher?" "Am I a worker?"
"Am'I agreeable to live with?"
Taken as a whole it was a good day
and all the talks much above the
average in helpfulness.
One hundred and sixty enrolled.
After music by the orchestra, a
bible reading and prayer by Dr. Green,
Supt. Warren took charge of a Round
Table'dlscusslon of the following sub
jects: 1. How shall we maintain grades In
the Rural Schools ?
2. School sanitation and decoration.
3. School Curriculum Are we teach
ing too much ?
His chief talk led to the discussion
of "Sanitation and Decoration" though
the latter part of the period brought
some excellent thoughts and plans lor
grading in the Rural Schools. W. A.
McCurdy, State Inspector of Schools,
gave material aid by his clean cut
pointers given as a result of a State
Supt. Warren preaches that "Clean
liness is next to Godliness", though
he advised his hearers that It Is not a
Bible quotation as generally believed.
He believes that school Would be
life at Its best, and that all buildings
and grounds should be cleaner
better kept than are those of the
average home. ' He urged the teacher
and pupils to do the many possible
things to bring about the right condi
tions without waiting for the Board
of Education to lead
Under the New School Code he be
lieves the ideal in heating, ventila
tion, lighting and all sanitary condl-
tlons will be attained. Those with
mKllcal Inspection, which often Im
proves pupils work 100$, with actual
practice of the theories of health
taught will give the minimum of
"Guiding Principles In Teaching
Literature" was given by Dr. Green
most ably and attractively. Illsfund
pi siones to rasten tne tnou mi oemg
work out is boundless. By this method
seeds are sown and grow that without
the stories would nbt bear fruit He
believes that children understand'
more of literature than they are'
credited with. Again, he believes,
one does not need to understand at
once all that Is being read but says lb
will be later
One apt story he told will, rightly!
applied, be of more value than the
money ho will draw for his week's
work. Here it is; Mary Anderson,
the great actress, said; to our love!
Longfellow "Tell me how to become
cultured in literature?' He replied,
"Read every day five minutes or more
some of the best literature and live
years will find you cultured in it."
Dr. Green also advocates the taking
of the child along the line of his taste
and if one can not have a formal class
get study of literature in your school
in some other way, but have It.
Select a few authors, he said, and
study not "longitudinally nor latitu
dlnally but cubically" ; that the Bible,
Shakespeare and a Webster's Diction
ary may be a complete library of a
scholarly person for the few books
must be one of the best ; some books
are voices, some echoes, so choose
Columns would not suffice to give
an accurate Idea of the high class
work helng done by Dr Green and our
Supt. Warren, but all sessions are open
and you are welcome to come at any
time and hear them
W. A McCurdy, State Inspector of
Schools, was given the first part of the
session and told of the work under the
"New Code" and the outlook for the
Rural Schools of Ohio. He paid our
teachers of Highland county a splen
did comp iment In classing them with
the best in appearance, attention and
attitude towards preparation and be
lieves the future of our schools are
secure in such hands.
Supt. Warren followed with "Arith
metic Some Essentials." Starting
' with the concrete work necessary in
first grades he led to the abstract and
maJe each step of his explanation so
clear that the material aid given the
teachers for their next year's work
can not be overestimated.
Socialize your work, do it quickly,
accurately and finally, much of It
automatically, he advised. He pointed
out mistakes and loss of lime in teach
ing fractions, percentage and interest,
and Impressed the necessity for analy
sis and rapid abstract combinations In
mental arithmetic work. A few" most
helpful of his suggestions are: ''What
isHo be done ?" "Approximate, men
tally, the result." "Doit accurately."
Two much seat work, two little
recitation." 'Arithmetic is not a
skuuy lu ue beiiL iiume. musibu uu
work and get it."
An appreciation of Lowell's "Vision
of Sir Launfal" was given by Dr.
Green. It was a literary feast from
first to last yet all left hungry for
more of the same kind.
He did not claim that the poem is
faultless but does claim It is a great
poem written by the greatest of
American's poets ; not the most loved,
most intense, most genial, the greatest
lover of nature, the greatest in thought
and philosophy, the most musical, but
the greatest. His poems may be put
Into eight classes autobiographical,
biographical, humorous, legendary,
nature, patriotic, reflective and reli
gious. In Sir Launfal's Vision we
have all but patriotic and religious.
Lowell was forty eight hours with
out sleep or eating anything while
creating this wonderfu poem. He
showed the apt discrimination of
Lowell in selecting the right word
a few instances "flapped for flew",
"gloomed for stood" and so on to the
Every teacher and visitor certainly
received an Impetus in llterarystudy
that will keep Dr. Green's name a
household word and his exposition of
this masterpiece a living incentive to
study the best In literature.
