Topics of state-wide, ii well ii i local importance WOTO dilOOl* 1 and delibereted upon.

This coon of study and accompanying schedule wai prepared by i committee which was appointed nt hist year's Institute.

"The trustee as i factor in icbool problem," "The p ;. the Normal Training Department lo I our School System," "The liiimina tion of the InOlicient and incompetent 'iVachers," and "The place of the High School in our Bdocational System." i'he teachers of the Institute were highlj and profitably entertained, on Thursday evening with an educational n by Prof. C.
