Dear Teacher and Co-worker:
Are you going to the summer school
this summer? We l:.ope that you are,
for we want a better and more competent
corps of teachers in Newberry
county next session than we have ever
had. The work this past session in
nearly all of the rural schools was
satisfactory. Those of you who were
new and inexperienced felt tne neea or
more normal training, and those of
you who were experienced felt the
need of new ideas and a getting out
of old ruts. But all of you showed by
your faithful and conscientious work
that you belong in that class of teachers
who never cease to grow.
The Vvintlirop summer school is de
signed to meet tne neeas 01 just suci^
teachers. There you can broaden your
ideas along general lines or on any
special branches; you can get inestimable
inspiration from being associated
"with kindred spirits; and those of
you who have never &ad the opportunity
of a college course can get still
The county board of education is doing
its part to secure this efficient
corps of teachers. They have offered
r^fim/1 55 tn all tparfiprs -who nrpsent
with their first pay claim a certificate
from summer scftool stating that satisfactory
work was done in at least two
full courses. The board and matriculation
for the entire term is only $32.
By reducing this amount to $27, it
should be in easy reach of every teacher.
Reduced rates have been asked
for on all railroads leading to Rock
Hill. The results will De announceu
If you nave not yet received a "bulletin
and an application blank, you
should write at once to Dr. B. D. Johnson,

A summer school especially designed
for high school teachers will be held
at South Carolina university. Detailed
information may be obtained from Dr.

If you are undecided as to wfcat
courses you would like to take we will
be glad to assist you in selecting the
courses that will aid you in your particular
work. Please let us know what
you expect to do. v

Why I Am Glad I Attended
I attended the summer school at
Winthrop college laast year and I feel
that it was time and money well spent.
I know I !bave done better work to is
year than I could have done without
training I had there.
Various courses were offered and the
best instructors were employed. Each
instructor was so full of his subject
and so enthusiastic over his work tfaat
one could not !belp "catching" some of
It was an inspiration to come :n con
tact with so many teachers, exchange
ideas and discuss observation "work
done in Mrs. Brown's Farm school and
the Training scfcool. To see the work
done in these schools is worth the trip
to Winthrop. It shows how easy it is
for a well-trained and well-prepared
teacher to get good results.
I enjoyed the lecture courses, too.
They were free to all ti'.e teachers and
were given at such hours that they did
not conflict with the other courses. We
had some delightful speakers on psychology,
pedagogy, home economics,
etc. It "was quite a treat to hear them.
Tben the entertainments were good
and much enjoyed. Organ recitals,
plays, reaain'gs, etc., were given.
Dr. Johnson, the matrons and the instructors
did all they could for our
pleasure, and I think we all went home
feeling tin at we had spent a pleasant
and profitable five weeks at iWlnthrop
and with the resolution to come again.

tion for compulsory education signed
by every qualified elector u-ho was approached.

What I Got at Summer School.
I'm not going to tell you what you
should get at summer school, or what
others got, but what I got at Summer
school last suJnmer.
I was tired when school closed. The
summer school opened in two weeks
and I felt that I should go. I screwed
my courage to tine top notch and began
to do the work necessary to get off.
I 'had to hold myself to resolution I
had formed. I am still glad tlhat I did
so. Make up your mind to go and

Have you ever felt that your mind
did not work as well as when you were
in school? Have you never wanted to
test your mind in class room work
again? I foave often. It was really a
pleasure to sit in a class again. When
I selected my course, I took some
studies because I knew I needed them,
one because I wanted to. Tien I went:
to work to see if my mind was really j
in working order.
I did not overload on my course, j
' taking only three studies with class- |
room work of four hours a day. I took j
drawing, because I am sadly lacking
in that branch. The work I did helped
me a great deal. The children's work
: this past session shows me wr.at I got J
Do you dread story-telling? If you j
do. take that, learn to tell one to a j
class of teachers?and see how much !
easier it is in school. Ii means work j
to tell to story well, but its worth the
trouble. Tl.:e room will be so still you I
can hear a pin drop, and several will
ue able to reproduce it fully \v en you .
There was a course in arithmetic I
enjoyed very much. It dealt with fundamental
facts and how ro nrespnr the
first steps in number work to children.
The work was very Lelpful in subject
matter, also in other things of which
the teacher seemed unconscious. Do
you ever get disgusted and out of pa
tience with a pupil for not seeing something
very simple to you? In that
class, I determined to be more patient.
If that teaci.er could stand there and
quietly explain day after day the same
simple points to teacher-pupils, and
still t'.iev not grasD it. how could I
get impatient with a small child? That
point struck me afresh day after day
and meant almost as much as ms'
The lectures given at night were very
instructive and enjoyable. When you
live in a small town, or in the country,
you long for such. I prefer them scat- !
tered along through the year. When
that can't be, I'll take them in a lump.
Some of their points will stay with you
forever. Don't forepr. thp roripprts '
readings and moving pictures. Some
of the entertainments were very pleasing.
A few nights they lasted for three
hours, but the people were willing for
imore. I enjoyed the music, especially
when it was on the pipe organ.
I won't forget the friendships
formed. That must hold a very promi
nent place in one's life. I know some
girls so much better, and love tftem !
imore for having been with them at 1
summer school. Let me tell you a
secret. I was afraid of Miss Goggans
until last summer. I still get a little i i
nervous when I see Ler coming, but'
I love her nevertheless. I found the
exchange of ideas with other teachers
most helpful. How you teach this,tJ':.at;

How I Used What I L&imed
At Summer School
At the summer school of the Soutlh
last summer there were many teachers
who were an inspiration to every one
! in the teaching world.
My summer's work was of more
i practical use in the way of method
than in snhipr>t mattpr Pnr PYflrrr.lp i
, in primary number work my method
of teaching multiplication tables before
I attended summer .school was
very tedious. Now it is a pleasure, because
I have taught the child to work
out the tables for himself, and not depend
on his memory; and in long division,
whereas the work used to be
i purely mechanical, the child is now
able to see the reason for each step
; taken by a simple device I learned at
! summer sd.ool. In this the child
learns iirst to get his trial divisor.
j second to multiply, third to use his
I eye to see if the trial divisor is not
1 too large, fourth to use his eye to see
if his trial divisor is too small, fifth
to bring down his next figure. Tnis ;
j device pleases ti:,e child and does away :
i with all the tedious mechanical part
of the work. The primary object of
: arithmetic is to develop the reasoning i
power, and hence he should be taught
to reason in bis -very first year of,
In reading also my method was
i changed through observation largely.
J The children in the practice departi
ment were mediocre children, there

who were backward. I had used a
combination of phonic, word and sentence
method of teaching reading, but!
