Dr. Balta gave tbo teachers a helpful
and Inspiring talk.

Supt. Tietrlck occupied the first
period and his subject was 'Effec
tive Teaching." If a man can write
a better book, preach a better ser
mon or make a better mouse trap
than his neighbor, though he make
his bome in tho woods, tho worm
will make a beaten path to his door
Tho secret of success Is constancy of
purpose. I know the teachers here
have a purpose. There is a sharp
distinction between a purpose and
a spasm. Many teachers have only
a spasm of what they shall accom
plish. The Individual who has a
purpose and will not give that pur
pose up Is successful. How well
you can do and keep on doing Is a
test of your work. Be judicious In
your expressions and then do just
what you say. Whatever you say
you will do, do It every day and do
It to the letter, steauy, even con
centration tells. The teacher is ef
fective who is exacting in what she
demands from her pupils. We our
selves often do not do much beyond
what Is required of us. Tho mind
must be riveted in study and a few
minutes of this kind of study Is
worth more than hours of mind wan
dering. It is struggle that gives
strength. One failing of children Is
just the doing of what can oe uone
easily. There is one degree a teach
er must have, It isn't a college de
gree. It is G. S. good sense. What
is good sense? It Is the knack of see
ing things as they are and doing
things as they ought to be done.
There Is difficulty in seeing things
as they are, but that Is the thing
that tells. W.hat you do ror uoa
and your fellow man will never die.
Mrs. Alma J.. G. Dlx, president of
the Wayne county branch of the
State Teachers' Association League
of Pennsylvania, called to order Us
members for the purpose of electing

he was sent as a delegate. Hq. 'stat
ed that this League was organized
to make teachers more efficient. It
alms to coruo closer to the teachers
and have every teacher enrolled as a
member. It is the purpose of the
League to prevent a school board
from getting rid of an efficient
teacher; to look after disabled teach
ers who have been efficient In their
work; to develop a eddo of profes
sional ethics; to secure proper com
pensation for tho teacher. The
Leaue Is trying to get two Important
bills through, the Legislature the
Tenure of office bill, which will pre
vent tho removal of an efficient
teacher by a fickle school board or
the sentiment of a community, and
a Teachers' Annuity bill, to provide
from the funds of the state Tor
teachers who have been efficient and
who have become p",,ysically unfit
for work. Tho convention at Har
risburg was given over to the dte
cussion of these two bills. We
must create a public sentiment so
that these two bills may bo brought
before the Legislature and passed.
The formal meeting of tho League
was then closed and Mrs. Dlx was
given charge. She spoke most elo
quently for women and tho Import
ant part they are playing In our na
tional life. America was discover
ed In 1492; men wero discovered In
177C, hut women were not discover
ed until 1870, when tho typewriter
and telephone camo Into use. We
hear much about tho Pilgrim Fath
ers but wo would like to hoar more
about tho Pilgrim Mothers. Mrs.
Dlx touched upon woman's suffrage
and all her remarks were to the
point and very effective. Sho was
Miss Edith Simons delighted tho
audienco with a recitation, "Her
First Ride In An Automobile." Miss
Simons responded to an encore.
Dr. Warren next discussed "A
Typo Lesson In Reading." He said,
"Mrs. Dlx set mo to thinking. If
thoro wero moro women who could
talk as well as sho does there would
bo no need for nny men on this plat
form. Hurrah for women and their
votes. In teaching reading first take

work must bo assigned with care lest
tho child become discouraged. Don't
over assign a lesson In reading with'
out flrBt saying to yourself, "Some

that tho vocabulary has boon wisely
