Importance of Drawing in Our Public
So many people have t-hc
wrong iflhmiression of the uses of
drawing in our public schools
Tlhe seem to think that its only
aim is to make a pretty draw
ing or picture, and its education
al value ends there. How lit
tie do they realize that it is one o1
the fundamental studies, and i'
is just as important in the de
velopment of a child's life am
mind in fields of usefuilness a~
number and language work.
Drawing is one of the oldes
and simplest ways of expressin
thought. It is a language tha
is c'Om mon to all nations, am
has been from time immemorial
It was the Principal mediun
used by the ancient EgyptIani
in handing down to the presen
generation their ideas and cus
toms. One of its chief aims il
public school work is to help th
child gain and express ideas an<
thoughts through drawing a
well as by language.
It is much easier for a child t4
get knowledge by seeing fron
than by hearing about it. If
teacher has a good knowledg
of drawing, and can make
picture of what he or she wishe
to teach 01' represent, the chii
can grasp it much more readil
than by telling him of the sam
in words.
'Tis sad but true that there is
woful lack of skill on the sIde o
thme above average teacher o
to-day in the use of drawing

What is the cause and how
can this deficiency in our educa
tion be overcome? The princi
pal reason is that teachers have
not been trained to draw as they
have been trained to read and
wvrite; if the sante attentin had
beCen given to their drawime as
to other studies, they wouMd be
I just as skillful in the one as the
other, for drawing is the naturall
medium through which .a child
expresses his ideas. The picture
of the idea appeals to all chil
dren. The remedy: Let us see
[ to it that the rising generation
of to-day does not miss nor neg
lect this all-important step in
3 their education, for the children
t of to-day will be our men and
- women of to-morrow.
Aside from the skill the child
a gains In the use of his hands

s ously. Drawing, above all other
studies, helps to -develop the
perdeptive qualities of the
i child-as to form, size, weight,

E Let us consider some of the
.uses of drawing in our every
1 day life outside of the school

the fear of these people is not
that I will refuse to enforce the
law; their fear is that I will en
force the law. They know that
I entertain old-fashioned ideas
upon this subject, and that ac
cording to my ideas the big
criminals should wear striped
clothes as well as the little
criminals. I want to say to you
that I believe in enforcing the
law against all classes of socie

that policy 'are better friends of .
the government than those who
would make scapegoats of little
criminals and then let the big
ones run at large to run the gov
