Interesting Meeting of Los
SEVERAL RESOLUTIONS PASSED.
Papers oa the Delsarte System and
the Study of Physiology in
The county teachers met yesterday
morning at Turn Yerein hall for institute
work, Superintendent Seaman presiding.
After calling the meeting to order, Mr.
Seaman congratulated the teachers upon
the success that had attended the State
Association meeting, which was mainly
due to the efforts of the Los Angeles
teachers. He announced that next De
cember, when the State Association will
meet at San Diego, the county teachers
will meet here and proceed in a body to
the convention, stopping on the way for
the San Bernardino county teachers, so
that the twe bodies would make a crowd
750 strong. The first event on the pro
gramme yesterday was a vocal solo by
Charles E. Day. Then Miss Alma S.
Bidgham read an interesting paper on
physiology. She illustrated her remarks
by means of a number of bones which
she had on the stage, together with a
Miss Helen Mar Bennett read an inter
•eating paper en the relsarte method, in
-which she said: There is so mach that
might be said showing the necessity for
the Delsarte training there are so-many
-examples that might be given in proof of
the good it oan and has already accom
plished, that it world be difficult to tell
where to stop; bat. above all, I desire to
make evident its perfect practicability.
There is too much mysticism, there are
too many lofty expressions of truth and
too little natural use of it. I feel that it
is possible in six months, or even less
time, to obtain a sufficient amount of
definite knowledge of this art to be of
lasting benefit to the pupil. I would call
your attention to the perfecting of the
body as an instrument in constant use.
No one likes to work with dull, unshapen
tools, and this training which we give the
body makes it alert, keen, quick and
responsive. All the effects produced
by humanity since the beginning of
time have been accomplished through
the action of spiritual energy on muscu
lar tissue. The more obedient we ren
der the muscular tissue, tbe more we
accustom it to instantly yield itself to
the dominion of the spiritnal energy, the'
■more we economize time and force. For
unless the body has been trained to be
come the ready servant of the will, it
will be dumb and inarticulate as an agent
for expression. I will state the advan
tages to health and character of the Del
sarte training. It is hygienically supe
rior to every other system of physical
culture, because it is the only one that
does not begin with an increase of ner
vous tension, and yet this is precisely
the factor which the existing conditions
of civilization give us in repletion. When
we use more nervous force than is
necessary for one action, are we not!
robbing vitality, which should and is
meant to give us new strength for
many other uses ? Are we not actually
stealing; it does not belong to us,
since on., .he force needed for the best
performance of the action is really ours '
In many cases self-consciousness is
simply nervous tension. Our introspec
tive age, full of critical self-accusation,
conscience educated till it makes cowards
of us all, has given a restraint to the
physique, a rigidity t > our muscles, and
we need to practice plastic, lithe, supple
and elastic motions to overcome this.
Upon the nervous systems of American
women are reflected with intensity the
suffocating repression, the conventional
restraint which is the residuum of the
sober, earnest but narrow and incom
plete lives of our puritan forefathers.
This desperate intensity leads to nervous
-exaggeration, and we are awkward and
angular in the carriage of our shoulders,'
Toid of rythm and poise in our walk,
self-conscious, restless and miserable
in our attitudes. Right here 1
wonld speak of a grave and
most deplorable fault in the carriage
of the body, namely : of giving an undue
prominence to the abdomen. We see
this habit on all sides and among every
class. There must be no separation be
tween the chest and the abdomen. The
perfectly poised man is he whose head,
trunk and limbs form a perfectly straight
In closing I should like to call your
attention to the following observations
made by Dr. Edward Hitchcock, of Am
herst, on the subject of physical train
ing: Tbe soul can be regenerated and
the body remain disorderly. The body
can be trained to fine physical life and
action and the soul remain unregener
ated; but certainly the fullness of life,
both for this world and the next, comes
from a more perfect harmony of the
body with the soul. So long as the soul
neeJs the body at all, it must be of ines
timable importance tnat the body should
conform itself to the pure laws of na'ure
by shunning physical evils, as it is that
the soul should be born again through
shunning spiritual evils.
Mr. James L. Smith, of the University
school, read a paper on "The Discipline
of Experience." He thought there was
need for more practical work in the
schools, and that the teachers should en
deavor to place themselves in sympathy
with the children.
Mrs. Bradfield, principal of drawing in
the schools, delivered an inter
esting lecture on the use cf
models. A number of teachers outside
of the city were not familiar with the
method now employed in the use of
models, and Mrs. Brad field's remarks on
the subject were of great benefit to them.
She illustrated the various points of her
lecture by means of the blackboard, and
the half hour she was on the platform
was one of the most interesting of the
State Superintendent Hoitt, who was
present, complimented tbe teachers of
the department, and in bidding them
good-bye said he hoped to meet them at
San Diego next December.
The proceedings at the afternoon session
commenced with a piano solo by Miss
Edna Butte, who charmed her audience
with Gbopin's "Fantasie Impromptu."
After roll-call a quartette was admirably
rendered by Messrs. Fosbay, Dozier,
Molyneanx and Townsend.
Professor Melville Dozier, of the State
Hormal School, then read an excellent
essay on "Geography," which was
listened to with close attention. Among
other things, the professor said: The
study of geography is Bow, more than
at any former period, an essential ele
ment in sdacation. The modern daily
newspaper is, and most continue to be,
THE LOS ANGELES _*ftj___j SATttKOAt MutiiMNG, MAROH 22 1890
the chief source of that knowledge of
current events which is indispensable to
every intelligent person. But the most
valuable and interesting portion of the
modern newspapsr is its collection of
important events occurring in all
parts of the world, as presented
in its telegraphic columns. To
him who is not acquainted with
the geography of the world, these facts
lose their interest and three-quarters of
their value. „ ~ ~ ,
Geography is practically an unlimited
field of knowledge and investigation, in
cluding in its scope an array of topics
(more comirehenaive than is presented
by its legitimate bounds, and it will be
found to trench upon the ground allotted
to almost all other subjects combined.
It is associated with ait, science ar.d
literature in all stages of their deve\op
ment; it is the handmaid of history *._d
the companion of commercial entevprise.
It is the geography more perhrtps than
anything else (except it be the form of
our Government' that has enabled the
United States of America to take such
giant strides in every departmeut of its
material development; and it is pre
eminently the geography of our own
cherished California upon which de
pends her inevitable destiny to shine as
the brightest star in all the noble galaxy
of stars tbat constitute our glorious
: American republic. Speaking of America
later on, the Professor eaid: "How full ol
interest is the geography of our country,
i presenting, as it does, a great sweep o:
latitude and longitude, every variety o
soil, many kinds of climate, unlimited
resources, both mineral and agricultural
giant mountain ranges and mighty
rivers, e~ery conceivable altitude from
' 300 feet below sea level to 3,000 fee
above, washed by the two great oceans
1 of the planet, bound in physical unity by
i bonds of steel, and in fraternal am
. political oneness by the still stronge
, bonds of patriotic devotion! There is no
portion of this fair earth that can com
pare with it, whether looked upon from
the standpoint of its peculiar location, it
magnificent extent, its bonndles
, wealth, its matchless government, or its
j A similar interest is arouped by th
contemplation of the incomparable excel
lencies of tbat imperial region that glorie
in the name of California.
Leaping, Minerva-like, full grown, int
the great sisterhood of tbe States, she a
once stepped into the front rank of im
portance, and has ever since marched
with a steady stride in the van of progress
and development. This is alone due to
her geography. With 800 miies of
sea coast, harbors that challenge
the world for excellence and beauty,
i forests that tower heavenward until they
have become famous the world over, anil
yield the best of lumber, broad acres of
tbe most fertile soil, mountain ranges
, ribbed with seams of precious metals,
! hundreds of the most chaining valleys,
j and the balmiest climate on the face of
. the broad earth—how could these f*il to
allure to these delightful shores the cream
of Eastern society? It is manifestly the
destiny of this Coast to wield in the
council of the nations and the forum of
tbe civilized world, an influence as
potent lA and as far reaching, as the most
sanguine could desire.
Prof. E. P. Rowell followed with a
paper on the "Standing of the Teacher
in the Community." He stated that the
teacher who expected to make his
work successful must be imbued
, with a large amount of common
i sense, as a lively exercise of
\ that rare faculty was absolutely indis
. pensable to his success. He created a
good deal of amusement by comparing
tbe standing of tbe pedagogue in oldeu
times with that of the modern teacher.
The former was expected to lead in the
choir, cure the sick, entertain the chil
dren, assist the widowed and orphaned,
comfort the aged, be a companion to the
middle-aged, eat everything put before
him,understand the rule of three, instruct
his pupil in the "three R's," and do al
sorts of multitudinous duties for a weekly
stipend of from $1.50 to $3 50. Though
the progress made in the standing of the
teacher was not in the same ratio as tha
of the other professions, no one couk
dispute the fact that an improvement ha<
been made, and a greatone. Thespeake
impressed upon his auditors the indis
pensability cf a sound body to an active
mind, such as theirs must of necessity
be, and urged upon them the necessity o
acquiring a practical and theoretica
knowledge of physical health. He callec
attention to the fact tbat so many teach
era failed in health after five years o
work in their profession, and said that a
teacher who had passed his or her
twentieth milestone and still maintainec
a position, was looked upon as a remark
able curioeity. This he thought was
in great measure due to the fault,
of the teachers themselves, because
they overworked themselves, ami he
particularly denounced the practice of
carrying home the pupils' exercises for
correction after school hours at night.
He said that there was no necessity for
looking back into prehistoric ages for
cave dwellers, as too often the teacher
«as of his own free will one of those who
dwelt in a cave of his own construction.
At tbe close of Prof. Rowell's address,
a recess of ten minutes was ordered, and
on reconvening, Prof. Dickinson made a
short address on the feasibility of pro
curing skeletons, with which to encour
age the study of physiology in the
On motion of Prof. S. Trowbridge, it
was resolved that the institute refund the
$20 paid by the State Association for the
music provided for the reception.
The report of the treasurer was unani

city Thursday, after five days spent at
the Transcontinental Association at Cor
onado. He states that the convention
will probably complete all its work and

other matters of any kind, but attend
strictly to the work they have in hand.
