editor's Comment i i Elsewhere in this issue we are publishing an article on the question of cooperating with the disciplinarian. This contains sev eral thoughts that merit consideration but to our mind the great sug gestion is that the ideal disciplinarian is no one man but a composite of all the good employees of the school. It is an undoubted fact that when any one employee relaxes in discipline, conditions are created that make the work of control by the other employees more difficult. All the employees in the school must expect to be not simply instructors in their special branches but disciplinarians in the better sense of the word. It is the duty of any employee to stop and correct any improper acts on the part of the pupils especially when they are not working under the direction of some other employee. Another thought in this article that merits serious consideration in that of having the disciplinarian handle insubordinates when other employees fail. While there is a grain of truth in this thought there is no proper reason for the employee, who has already failed, to think himself in a position to instruct the disciplinarian how to proceed. It seems to be human nature for the failures to undertake to tell the successful ones how things ought to be done, but it is a trait that one does well to suppress. [Continued from page 15.] North Carolina Arthur D. Wright, Virginia and S. L. Smith, Tennessee. Arthur D. Wright, state supervisor of rural schools in Virginia, held a conference with thirty-two of his supervising teachers. Fifteen farm demonstration agents had a meeting under the direction of T. O. Sandy, a pioneer in the farm demonstration work. Striking evidences of Negro progress on the farm, in the home, and in the school were seen at the Hampton Institute Farmer's Con ference. It surely pays to educate the Negro farmers who are beginning to live at home and are not absolutely dependent upon the local merchants. Negro farmers are enjoying the good results of diversified farming—better implements, better stock, and better homes. —Hampton Institute Press Service. 16.
