ing the program for the Third
Annual Convention of the Ioulsi.
ana School Improvement League,
held in Lafayette January 17-18,
1911, we were very anxious to
prepare an attractive program
and select such subjects for dis
cussion that would greatly bene

tend the convention, and awtken
in them a better understanding
of this great orgnsued efort, tthe
improvement of the conditions of
child life in the home, in the
school room and on the play
One pim of the program com.
mittee was to have unrowed pro.

topics, but not s muany of them

for nueastions ad discussions.
The addresses of Welcome had
a rlngoftruth and. warmth of
love for childhood that prompted
them, sad were responded toin a
kind by an enthuslatict Lesuge
worker, who keenly appreciated
the genuineneass manifaested.
The report of delegates showed
a decided increase in the number
of Leagues formed during the
year and a great imrovement in
the plan of conducting the same.

The school authorities need
the assistance of the parents in
the home to co-operate with them
in bringing the child to the high

No larger field of work 'or
sphere of hopefulness has ever
been thrown open to parents and
teachers than that of looking out
for the boys and girls of the fu.
