Ke then refe-rred to the evil wrought
by the "Clansman," whicn is now being
played In southern theaters, because, he
said, it stirred up the bitterest race ha
tred, and that men had to be stationed
at the exits to prevent quarrels which
Iwould otherwise result. "Every one,"
declared the speaker, "whether he be
Jew or Gentile, oriental or occidental,
has his part to add to the great broth
erhood. ' . '
"The last public address of John Hay
was an appeal for what I have been
speaking about to-night. He wished
that all men do something to make war
less necessary. The .way is prepared.
Do we want peace? Do we want in
ternational arbitration? Then let us
teach our boys, while not despising the
old generals, to admire a better kind of
"I love to repeat to my own college
boys the oath which each Greek youth
took on reaching adolescence. It reads
thus: 'I will not dishonor my country,
and will leave her greater than I
found her. I will not desert my com
rades, and will obey the laws of my
country. I will not desert her temples,
of all which "may the gods be witness.'
"For the American boy I would add
these: 'I will recognize the rights of
other nations. I will do something for
the brotherhood of mankind. I will
obey the umpire of nations, and thus
promote the equality of man, and the
federation of the world."
The second speaker was Kate Stev
ens of the Teachers' Training college,
London, who spoke on "Some Recent
Educational Developments in Eng
land." She first expressed the good will
which the Teachers' guild of her na
tion felt towards the American Insti
tute. She gave an account of the
religious question, and Its rise up to
the present acute form.
The last speaker of the evening was
Henry T. Bailey, editor of the School
Arts Book, and formerly state super
visor of drawing for Massachusetts.
(His subject was the "Arts and Crafts
!n Public Schools."
.'He said that the times demanded
more topics for public schools and the
demand is voiced by the farmer, bus
iness man and educator. They com
plain that the modern boy has no idea
of the value of time, no conception of
business, no power of application and
no thoroughness. He has, as Hanford
Henderson says, a lack of totality, a
desire to do as little as possible, and
get as much as possible. He is lazy,
self-seeking and of flashy character.
The school, he declared, is not entire
ly responsible for these conditions.
There are two other responsible factors
which must share the blame. They are
the industrial world and the home. The
report of the committee on industrial
and technical schools for Massachus
etts says that the apprentice system
formerly did its part toward the build
ing of substantial citizens, but now
every day lost by the apprentice sys
tem is gained by the schools,
j. The speaker said that the home was
formerly a most potent factor in edu
cation, but now the duty of supplying
the practical, "old fashioned" motor
training rests with the schools. The
schools, he thought, were rising to the
occasion. There were some bad prac
tices, he admitted, but h.e said "if the
publio school is ever to give childre
' anything like the discipline they used

all these must be modified In the direc
tion of concrete, genuine, vitla, teleo
loglcal training. The school must bring
the child Into contact with nature at
first hand, with problems of vital In
terest and obvious value. I believe
the schools are moving in this direc
tion. Th3 kindergarten and grammar
grades are doing their part.
"We must foster," ho continued, "the
handicrafts and especially those such
as pertain to school and home life.
High schools must have more gener
ous and exacting commercial courses,
JWVG courses In applied physics and
chemistry, more shop work, surveying,
landscape gardening, forestry, Intensivo
agriculture and applied art. Such
work will help produce a sterling char
acter. Our model of the well ordered
school room should be the workshop.
Yet we should not develop skill to such
an extent that it becomes automatical.

have more music to tame the spirit in

our young men may see visions and our
young women dream dreams. We must

The sessions will continue this morn
ing with a general meeting In Woolscy
hall at 9 o'clock. At 8:45 o'clock the
nomination committee will hold its
meeting. For this afternoon the White
City has been, through the courtesy of
Manager Speck, thrown open to the
delegates, and it is safe to say that
nearly all those attending the conven
tion will take advantage of the invita
tion. THE
With various sessions of the different
departments of the American Institute
of Instruction opening yesterlay the
first important meetings of the seventy
sixth annual convention of the Institu
tion got under wy, the interest in the
work of each department being fully
as keen as at any previous convention.
Many teachers, especially from various
parts of New England, camo to town
yesterday making the attendance at the
convention a large one.
Each of the department's sessions
was an Important one, the substitute
meetings :being held at tho conclusion
of the general session in Woolsey hall,
which opened at 9:30 o'clock. Three
musical selections in the general ses
sion preceded the aldress by Prof. Al
bert G. Keller of Yale university, whose
subject was "The Teaching of Commer
cial Georgraphy.
At the general session President

the Teachers' Training college, London,

ihe institute is the oldest education or
ganization in the country, having been
startel in 1835 or 1S36. It is a distinct
ly New England ody, having only met
two or three times outside of New-
England- A number of local teachers
will take advantage of the opportunity
of attending the sessions this week.

school finance, held Its session, the gen
eral topic being "The Wages of Teach
ers." The subject, "The Expense of the
Education Which Public Schools Ought
to Give" was discussed by Nathan C.
Schaeffer, superintendent of public in
struction of Pennsylvania and Calvin
N. Kendall, the superintenlent of
schools in Indianapolis, Ind.
Superintendent Kendall, in discussing
the expense of the education which
public school ought to give, said:
This expense must .be considerable
moro than at present for the following
First The lemands upon schools are
constantly increasing. Us an evample

country are demanding that the ele-

Manual training in its various phases
is another example.
Second-Social conditions are not
what they were. More and more people
live in the cities, and schools In cities
cost more per capita than schools in
the country.
Third The cost of living has greatly
increased during the past ten years.
This seriously affects the net salaries
of teachers.
Fourth There are numerous well pall
and attractive employments other than
tearihinir for both wom.n and men.
Fifth The public can afford to pay
more for schools than at present be
cause tho country is prosperous, in
growing richer, and good schools con
tribute as no other force does to the
various kinds of productive citizenship.
Mr. Kendall sail that in the cities of
the United States, and excepting New
York, Boston, Chicago, and Philadel
phia, the average yearly salaries of
women teachers in the elementary
.schools was only $5iii3. In half Af the
cities the average salary is less than
So far as men are concerned they
have practically disappeared from
teaching in the elementary schools of
cities, owing to the Inadequate sala
ries. The wages for women in half the
cities are les3 than those of servant
girls, when it is consilered that the lat
ter pay nothing for board, room and
The wages of skilled labor are from
25 to 100 per cent, higher than teach
ers' wages. The wages of the teachers
in the cities are princely In compari
son with those in the rural schools, as
might be easily demonstrated.
Mr. Kendall deprecated any attempt
to systematically organize teachers for
higher pay. There shoull be discussion,
however, publicly of the facts and agi
tation. Mr. Kendall predicted that unless
higher salaries are paid to teachers
that there would 'be a steady increase
of private schools to which many
thoughtful and discriminating people
would send their children.
Dr. J. H. McCurdy and Dr. Anderson
'Make Interesting Statements Re
garding Sunday Sports.
Dr. James H. McCurdy of the Inter
national Training school, Springfield,
Mass., spoke at length on the physical
training of the young, Dr. McCurdy
said in part:
"By tho evils which have grown into
college athletes the faculties of col
legos have been forced to gradually
take a more active part In athletics.
Forty years ago the director of the
Harvard gymnasium and physical cul
ture department was a negro prize
fighter. Now the gymnasium with a
trained Instructor is a nabsolute ne
cessity. I believe that the competi
tion in athletics in colleges should be
much less with outside teams and
should be more intra. The east Is far
behind the west in the matter of super
vision of physical culture."
Professor William G. Anderson, head
of the Yale gymnasium, said:
"Little truth Is met in extreme, and
there Is little good in extreme action,
either physically or mentally. Athlet
ics have been carried to extremes. We
are in a position to hear a mass of
complaints no one else hears.
"Tho Sunday afternoon does the boy,
especially in the country, more harm
than anything else. He congregates on
corners, loafs around, gets Into mis
chief and learns bad habits. I would
rather seo boys in athletics and clean
sports on Sunday than telling smutty
stories on street corners. I approve of
Sunday sports under certain condi
Interestingly on the Need of Mild
Games in the Public Schools Mr.
Ehler Also Expresses Opinion.
Dr. Boyee of the State Normal school
of Trenton, N. J., talked Interestingly
of the need of mild games in the pub
lic schools. ' I know a number of men
who are very fond of games so long
a3 they can go, sit on the bench and
yell. These men should be accustomed
to playing games themselves.
"Tho boys want games, but how far
should we allow the boys to dictate as
to what they shall have?"
Under the discussion on the matter
of apparatus work for girls, several
women who have had experience in
this line talked chiefly in favor of this
work. Miss- Ethel Weeden of St. Louis
was one of the speakers.
Girls in basketball was also discuss
ed, and the concensus of opinion that
tho game was of benefit when played
under proper supervision prevailed, but
that inter-school competition among
girls is bad. 'Ihe state of mind in com
petitive paying is sharply distinctive
from the pure play spirit.
The question of introducing the mas
culine element into the character of
girls was raised and G. H. Ehler of
Cleveland, O., said that such masculine
elements as co-operation, loyalty, self
control and strengthening the moral
fiber are desirable. iMr. Ehler dislikes
publio contests in games for girls and
the attendant newspaper notoriety
With some phases eliminated, he be
lieves in the competition, however, as
it strenghtens character.
Speaks on "The Teaching of Commer.
cial Geography."
Frof. Keller of Yale said: "Commercial
activity rises from unequal distribution
of natural products to different parts of
the globe. Nations are formed from
other than causes market out by na
ture and the iack of the necessities of
life in localities give rise to extensive
commerce. In taking up the study of
this in Yale we are surprised at the
lack of early stiulJC id s&dsxaj&K a
shown by our pupils almost without ex
ception." Prof. Keller then went Into a state
ment of the reasons for the taking
up of the study of commercial geog
raphy as making plain the causes of
various world movements ending with
a description of the way the study is
taught at YaJu.
Of Tufts College Speaks on "Disciplin
ary Values of Education-''
The next speaker introduced was
President Frederick W. Hamilton of
Tufts college, whose subject was "Dis
ciplinary Values of Education." He said
in part:
"The final cause of education Is to fit
young people for life, and that educa
tion is best which fits best for life.
The acquisition of a certain amount of
information la necessary, but this is
not the principal thing. The most im
portant thug of all in the gaining of
power to meet the problems of life as
they come up, and this is only gained
by discipline. The dangers of the pub
lic schools to-day are the Influences of
the kindergarten reaching upward and
the elective system in college reaching
downward oven to the grammar school,
showing tho careful, avoidance of
drudgery. Life consists mainly 'not
in what we want to do, but in what
we have to do.
Of Rochester, N. Y., on tho Duties of
Superintendents, and the Hon. W. T.
Harris un "'School Supervision."
C F. Carroll, .superintendent of
schools in Rochester, spoke on the mu
tual responsibilities of principal and su
perintendent proved very Interesting to
members o f those bodies who were
present. Mr. Carroll also spoke at
length on the salary question, which is
an absorbing topic at present all over
the country, spoke of conditions as they
exist and of the remedies. Political and
personal issues lie claimed entered into
nearly every school system, and were a
great detriment. Low salaries he main
tained also decreased the teachers'
Of more general interest to the large
body of teachers was the address by
the Hon. William T. Harris on "Fun
damentals in School Supervision." He
"The chief work of the superinten
dent is to discover the good devices of
his teachor.s and make them the com
mon property of all the teachers. He
has to collect the experiences of all the
teachers to be truly successful. One of
the ibest ways for teachers to broaden
the minds of their pupils is by dividing
the classes and letting tho divisions
hear each other recite, thus gaining
many new ideas which cart be further
enlarged upon by tho experienced ex
planations of the experienced teacher.
Tho Industry of the school is funda
mentally through the study of books
by which tho pupil learns the greatest
thought and ideas of the great men of
thus and preceding ages. But this
study must be filled out by helping
statements on the part of the teachers."
Ho then went Into a comparison of dif
ferent methods with the dialectic meth
od explaining how they complement
oach other.
Gives Interesting Talk on History.
Professor F. A. Mowry said that the
history of our own country is of tho
most Importance to tho American child.
