onthe same subject Child study Is as
old as the Christian- era, still In our
schools It Is In lta Infancy. Mr. Taylor
thinks that child stndy has caused us
to study the parents or patrons ot tho
school, ana then to study oarsuVta.
These two results ot themselves in t great
help to our schools. - r'^Jgjj
The topic "Have we an Ideal ks our . -..Sa
Work? If so What Is That Ideal?" was .W3S
opened by Mr. A. J. Wilkinson In a
short, but very earnest talk. Mr. King jKHB
spoke pleasantly on the same sobjsct. . J
He was followed by Merrick, Deahl ' J
and Oesch. Miss Marlln, of the
MoundsviUe schools, spoke on the oh'
Ject. ursine that unless we have the pupll
all through the school oourse we cannot
reach a perfect ideal; the mlsfor- -. .A]
tune Is that wa*do not have the chlldrsa -.

closed the discussion In a very pertinent
talk, and ha then, at the
of the association, discussed tlw toplo,

the work Is carried on most ?nthasls??>.- jai

things in the conducting of the schools - ,:.'J
that .might be criticized, still th?r are
doing a great work. They are creatia* I
an enthusiasm that la not often created. ,
Mr. Boyd closed by urging that m en- .'Ail
thusiasm Is necessary in all school work - I
and asked the teachers to so to their I
school rooms with an enthuslsam that 233
will make their schools betta?fthan^??si ' SB
