sary lo one who desires to he a teacher.
School boards invariably prefer a te ch
er who has had normal training and ex
perience in the wor.
The trained teacher has some idea of
her work and, entering the school room on
opening day, becomes master of the situa
tion; while the untrained teacher knows
not how to proceed, the pupils see this,
and the success of the teacher is In doubt
from that mement.
I know that a proper love for children
and for the work will often make an un
trained person a good teacher, aod some
who have been trained do not make good
teachers, but if we add to a love for the
work and love for the child, a training in
the manner of producing best results,
summer school are expected to be present.
Make your plans accordingly.

Dawes county institute will convene the
first week of June commencing May 31
with Supt. E. P. Wilson of Wayne, a suc
cessor of R. I. Elliott, and Cclia M. Chase
of the Chadron high school as instructors.
All teachers expecting to teach in Dawes
county are requested to be present for the
one week of institute work.
Come with the expectation of receiving

urged to attend, if possible, one of the
summer schools. Those attendiug the full

To all Sioux County Teachers:
Many of you have already made your
plans for summer school attendance this
year. To those who have not I wish to
say that I hope you will plan to attend
somewhere if even for only a part of the
term. The demand lor good teachers was
never so great in western counties as it is
now. In Sioux county alone double the
number of teachers are required over a
few years ago. But while the number of
districts has increased and the terms have
been lengthened, school boards have also
raised the requirements of their teachers.
They ask now, not only what grade of cer
tificate do you hold, but what experience,
and what normal training have you had?
Where formerly western teachers wete
given preference on general principles,
this is true now only where they possess
equal qualifications with their eastern
With access to the State Normal School
and with normal training in their high
schools, these teachers in the eastern part
of our state hold a decided advantage over
those in Western Nebraska. Nevertheless
their competition must be met and it can
Among the very excellent schools of the
state is the Alliance State Junior Normal
School. This school invites all teachers
and prospective teachers to attend. I urge
you to attend. It is beautifully located,
backed by the state and conducted by men
of recoguized ability who know the needs
of western teachers. Yourslruly,
Author F. Becker.
The Trained and the
The advantages of a special training for
school work need hardly be mentioned and
yet many ask, "Is it necessary for me to
go to normal this summer?"
We superintendents 'do not hesitate to
recommend a teacher who has the true
professional spirit and is willing to sacri
fice a little in order to attend a normal
where she may receive the training neces-
ALLIANCE HIGH SCHOOL
This Building- will be the Home of the Normal, 1909
then we have the ideal teacher.
Patrons have a right to demand that the
one employed to train their children shall
be specially qualified for the work. To
those who cannot give a whole year to the
work, the summer normal affords excellent
opportunity for self improvement.
The contact with others engaged in the
same work, the exchange of ideas, the in
spiration gained and the instruction given
are of great help to the tired, worn-out or
discouraged teacher. You will go back lo
your school room with new courage and
new zeal and your work will be better in
If you are not a progressive teacher, you
must expect to be crowded to the wall.
There is no room for the one who teaches
with no enthusiasm. You must inspire
your pupils to greater efforts, to nobler
ideals and to the highest manhood and
womanhood attainable. You yourself must
be rilled with enthusiasm and this can be
gained nowhere so well as at a training
school. Here one gets a knowledge of the
best and newest methods of presenting
subjects, and a teacher to ba successful
must be ''up-to-date." We have no room
for the teacher who is not willing to learn
new and better ways of teaching.
I trust all who seek positions in Chey
enne county will do all in their power to
become trained teachers and the high

held during the coming term.
Our institute will be held as a joint in
stitute with Deuel county and continue
for one week, beginning August 23rd. At
the close of institute the school exhibit
will be held and each school should be
represented. The instructors are Supt.
W. R, .Pate of Sidney, Ex-Supt. Wm.
Ritchie, Jr., and Miss Susie Frazier of
Alliance. All are well known to us and
we are looking forward to a pleasant and
profitable week. All who do not attend
hoped that it will be possible for all our I
icacncrs lu aueuu our uwu lusuiuie.
I wish especially to urge those teachers,
whose homes are in other counties, but
who expect to teach here again next year,
to remain with us for the two weeks.
While the instruction in your home
county no doubt will be fully as good, yet
one of the main reasons for holding insti
tute is that teachers and superindents may
get together and talk over plans for next
year We need suggestions from all teach
ers of the county.
I know our teachers who wish to attend
normal will appreciate the convenience of
REGISTRAR O. E. PHILLIPS
holding our institute at Alliance I will
not discuss the value of normal training as
it is well set forth in other parts of this
paper, but I do wish to say that too much
good cannot be said of it. With the young
teacher it takes the place of experience;
with the more experienced it is a refresh
ing and brightening up process, and at the
same time they may be taking branches
for a higher grade certificate.
Hoping to meet you all soon and trust
ing that we may have pleasure combined
with work, I am Sincerely yours,
Supt. II. R. Dellinger wishes the an
nouncement made that Grant county will
pay the railroad fare from Grant county to
Alliance and return for all teachers of
I Grant county who attend the Institute the
, two wedks or the Junior Normal during
! the eight weeks.
. This liberality on the part of. Grant
county will be greatly appreciated by the
teachers of that district.
Hooker couojy will, in all probability,
make the same provision for the teachers
of that county.
