The Laurens County Teachers' asso

following program was rendered:
"What Shold the Teacher Know of the
Lighting, Heating and Ventilating
of her School Room " Miss Minnie
"Is it the Duty of Teachers to Dis
cover Defects inl the Sight, Hearing
and the like of her Pupils?" Miss

Mr'. Ghunte(r spent last week visiting
the schools in WVater'loo, Sullivan and
Dials townships. Heo seemted wvel
plleased with thte teachers in tile
schools and especially commlented on
the good attendance. A great deal of
emphlasis was laid upon teacher' lead
ership. Hie was sure thlat tile ques0
tion of consolidation shtould be agitat
ed in some places and that tis was
tile ontly remedy for te situation
where there were a number' of one
teachler schoo01s close tog6thler. In a
ver'y clear and emphatic way he shtow
ed that thie teachet' could do a great
deal towards bringing abiout tis in
