DE. 3168 Summer Term Commences June 3rd. 1916 1 Love of Outdoors Guides Mrs. Alburtis' Achievements I Career Includes School Gardens and Camp for Girls By Jessie Font Evans Love of the out-of-doors has led Mrs. Susan Sipe Alburtis, affection ately known as Aunt Susie to thou sands of teachers, former pupils and campers, to make two great i contributions to Washington, j As a botany teacher in the Wilson Teachers’ College, she initiated na ture study work and school gardens in the District public school system. In this field, this city now ranks at the top in this country. After supposedly “retiring” from an active teaching life for one of leisure and travel with her late husband, James H. Alburtis, this dynamic, nature enthusiast started a camp for girls near Solomons Island on the Chesapeake Bay. Its inception was not for any gainful purpose but because her two sisters were seriously ill and she wanted an open space, with swimming and hiking, where Aunt Susie could take care of her young nieces and nephews in an interesting way. 24th Season for Camp.

Telephone HObart 1520 itute V Md„ has also been a avid world traveler. "Invariably,” as she puts it, “my teaching background manifested itself. I would find myself looking for ideas that the children of this country would understand about those in other countries.” This resulted in her bringing home attractive native costumes and other Interesting exhibits which she has used widely in talks to | groups of children. Today, these form the nucleus of her “interna tional house” at Camp Matoaka, where an international fiesta, fea turing customs in many lands, is one of the high lights of the camp ing season. , Talks on Trip. This spring, Mrs. Alburtis has been giving educational talks to many groups on her recent two-way air trip to Guatemala. Her love of the out-of-doors and of horizons beyond her own coun try began when, as 18-year-old Susan B. Sipe, she was a pupil of Miss Lucilla Smith at what is now Wilson Teachers’ College. Until Miss Smith was 95 years old she sent her former pupils worth-while poems on special anniversaries. Today, as a distinguished educator in her own right, Susan Sipe Al burtis stresses “the need to fill chil dren and young people with good poetry, so that its ideals will be a constant joy and inspiration to them all the years of their lives.” The trails at Matoaka are open every week end in May and June to former campers and their families at Mrs. Alburns’ special invitation. A camp experience for young peo ple should not merely be a way toi occupy their summer leisure with competitive sports, but an out-of-; door experience that becomes a vital part of their spiritual de velopment in helping them to live with others, she believes. Urges Many Interests. I Mutually delightful for both Mrs. ! Alburtis and her former pupils in the District school system are the reunions with them which she fre quently holds. Asked for a recipe for a happy retirement she said, "Have diversi fied interests either apart from or closely akin to your professional and occupational interests and then vigorously keep them alive after ward. A life investment in young people is the surest way of keeping happy and young in spirit.” A comparatively new hobby of hers is weaving. Sun rise and moon light on the Chesapeake Bay are two of the exquisite original designs she has in her West Irving street home.
